“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.”
All resistance is a Wall.
As a visual person it helps me to battle resistance if I think of it of it that way.
I don’t want to be walled in. Or left talking to those same four walls. And I certainly don’t want to be “Just Another Brick in the Wall”. NO! I have something else in mind.
25 years have passed since Ronald Reagan said those infamous words “Tear Down This Wall”. The message was, of course, aimed at then Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, that the time had come to tear down the Berlin Wall dividing East and West Germany.
But the wisdom of his statement goes far beyond the historical context of which it was said. It must be part of our manifesto in the Art of Reinvention. We cannot let the walls stop us from following our Bliss. I want to “Tear Down Those Walls”. And as Killer B’s we all have to tear down our walls to get where we are going.
“I don’t have the time” is a wall.
“I don’t have the money” is a wall.
“I don’t have the education” is a wall.
“My friends/family say it can’t be done” is a wall.
“But I’d have to miss the next episode of my favorite TV show” is a wall.
“But I’m too tired” is a wall.
“It will take too long” is a wall.
Awful. Yeechy. Stinking. Walls.
Tear ‘em Down. Tear ‘em Down. Now!
