The world can be a source of overwhelm. In The Real Zeal, I offered, “… to lay claim to that one that is your Soulful DNA is to manifest a deeper manifestation” in the face of a world that wants to take us “off game”. Let me explain.
First, I humbly recommend both links above. Second, the world calls out to us in myriad ways that can distract. Forces of fear and frustration. Seductive calls to commit to things we do not truly feel such. We can end up chasing fears, frustrations, fantasies and futilities.
Truth is … the work begins, and ends, within. There, we find our noble call. There, we find our best walk. As I look forward to learning how I can better live responsibly to the environment… as I continue to engage cool, content rich dialogue… from which I learn; I know that the real work is within. If I keep chasing whispers of wailing and wanting, I will not be nor do my best. My practice of Dominion matters; vitally. It enables me to discern my Hell Yeah. To that end, I attempted to capture such spirit in cartoon form, lol.
February is my birthday month. As a Baha’i, I also know that my birthday lies in the Month of Mulk (Dominion). This year, and approaching the Baha’i New Year in March, I am ever munching on this notion of my own practice of Dominion. In a world that calls out in oh so many ways, it is vital to not lose our rudder, ballast and sail… amidst the storm. Dominion provides all of that; and compass. As I ponder my life steps forward, I find myself saying “F that”… and the F stands for forward. “When the swords flash, go forward…”. In matters of personal and professional, F that. In matters of health and career, F that. It matters of Service and contribution, F that. Please excuse the language, but this meditation has some truth. I will choose Forward that, but hey… Peace. 😉
