Your Own Best Disciple
In United and True, last week… I shared… “Unity. It is not just about community, local and global. It is about Unity within. Alignment. Mind, body, spirit, Soul. Loving ourselves and others are not competing forces, nor is it about one before the other. When we care for others, we are often honoring and caring for our own selves. It is reciprocal, so long as their is balance.”
This week, on LinkedIn, I posted YOUR own new world order… inspired by a great article from RBC. I humbly and sincerely suggest the read and reflect. Indeed and in deed. Both aforementioned posts speak to aligning ourselves and our worlds. Finding our best purpose and service is about that. Alignment matters. It is not about drive but flow.
On After School Live this week, I shared on Discipline as a reward versus a punishment. Discipline is that strength of character that protects us from distraction and doubt. It keeps us real, and true.
We make our best choices with it. We persevere and “get ‘er done”. We cultivate out best character; as it Sharpens the Blades… on it. We practice to make permanent. When we feel less than motivated, it is that “friend” that grabs us by the hand and gets us doing what we need to do… whether in stillness or movement.
Discipline is the work of the disciple.
It practices, hard.
Resolute and faithful.
Consider your Soul your master. Listen to it. Follow it. Be your own best disciple. Call upon Discipline.
I am. It means being courageously honest about the person I am and intend to be. It means having that as my chase. It means getting palpably, pungently clear and what and who matters most to me and hold that up as my soulful master; and practicing the Discipline to follow it.
Last evening on LinkedIn, I shared…
“Almost two months ago… you walked on little one. I keep walking and will someday catch up. For now, and as long as it takes, I will keep walking. What we can best do to #Love and #Honor those we Love and Honor is to walk in such a way that we do Love and Honor. #bestlittledogintheworld“
Panda sampled for me so much of what I strive to be. She was and is my #sliceof God… with her Gentleness, Courage, Integrity, Zeal, Purposefulness, Love and so very much more. She was not unlike a mirror to see a better me. She was and is a blessing and gift.
Now this disciple must walk.
Peace, passion and prosperity…
