Do, Or Do Not
I couldn’t resist. I know everyone has heard this famous quote more times than they can count from this powerful little, lovable guy, but here it is again! Simple and to the point!
I actually just sent this to a friend because of the conversation we were having over his trying, but missing the bulls eye because of repeating the way he’s always done things, even though on the surface he seems to have changed a lot. The mental and emotional patterns take some repatterning too, however. And in the interim, his health is being taxed immensely.
We’ve all been there in one way or another right? And until you experience that click where what you’ve heard, have come to understand, or been telling yourself, after hearing it countless times, comes together on all levels, you feel trapped and frustrated in not knowing how to get out of the vicious circle. Until things align, after enough is enough, or that final threshold is reached, and then bam!
Luckily, he has a great sense of humor, which helps, and so with someone like him, I can be frank in humorous ways right back. But the bottom line is, if something isn’t working to achieve the results you want, then maybe there’s a different way you could be choosing to do it. Right?
There is a fine line being addressed here, and a lot of it stems around your commitment and full embodiment of the new thing or belief you want to have. That isn’t to say there’s anything wrong with trying. Everything is part of our individual journey and is perfect every step of the way for exactly what we need. We each do the best we can with what we have in the moment.
The focus isn’t whether or not you’re doing it wrong, but if you truly want a different result, then that entails different choices and actions. So how willing are you to choose and be different?
Anyway, I say this all the time when someone close to me says that they will try and if I ever catch myself saying the same. A little Yoda “Lessons in Life 101” always does the soul some good.
Enjoy the flashback while facilitating the power of the now!
