My First Insight: It’s All Good

by Amy on August 14, 2014

It’s all good.  Underneath the surface, it really is.

When I deeply saw that, everything changed.

Listen to me describe it here. And I also talk a bit about the upcoming weekend seminar I’m hosting this October. Please consider joining us for your own big life insights.

Maybe you’ve had a time in your life when there were no particular goals you were working toward and nothing in particular you were dreaming about.

go with flow

When, if someone walked up to you on the street and granted you a wish, you’d need a few minutes to place your order?

I have clients in that place and they think a real problem.  It’s no wonder, really.

The self-help culture tells us that we need a vision. A goal. A direction, if we want to end up somewhere. Without a direction or vision, how will we possibly know where to go? They tell us we’ll end up nowhere, fast.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Life is constantly unfolding. Things are always happening. Life moves you whether you think about it and plan for it or not, as you may have noticed.

Life is always occurring on your behalf, with absolutely no strategy or forethought needed.

It is perfectly okay to be in the flow of it rather than trying to control the flow of it.

It is a wonderful feeling to want nothing but what you already have.  

You will not stay stuck where you are (as if that’s a bad thing). You will get pushed along with the current of life as you always have—plans and goals or not.

If you truly want something, you know it. That thing becomes your dream, wish, or goal on its own, naturally. You don’t ever have to brainstorm “Hmm, what would make me happy?” and then set that as a goal.

It shouldn’t be an exercise to decide what you want. If it is, I highly doubt you truly want those things.

Since I started doing the inside-out experiment a couple years ago, there’s been almost nothing I crave aside from what I already have.  Having no goals and no burning desires might actually mean you’re content and enjoying the life you have.

What could be wrong with that?

The Promise in all of this Crazy Stuff I Write About

August 7, 2014

When I first read this short blog post by my friend Bonnie, I knew I’d want to share with you all at some point.  She writes about the evolution so many of us go through. I went through it too, very similar to how Bonnie describes it. Imagine this—maybe you can relate:  You’re floating through […]

The One Source of All Human Experience

July 31, 2014

A few weeks ago a friend said something to me—when I was in the thick of some very heavy thinking—that resulted in a huge wave of comfort and relief.   He said, “…thoughts are an expression of universal energy, always fluctuating and finding the best course.” I understand that insights are as subjective as our […]

If I’m so Resourceful, Why Can’t I Figure out How to Feel Better?

July 24, 2014

The people I work with are smarter than your average bear. They are resourceful, bright, successful people. The other day, a man I find especially bright and resourceful (if I had a question about anything I’d ask this guy, knowing he could find the answer in a flash), told me he was looking for a […]

You Have No Idea How Safe You Really Are: A Story about Buddha’s Fear of Fireworks

July 17, 2014

Not unlike most dogs, my dog Buddha is petrified of fireworks.   Unfortunately for Buddha, our little corner of the world (maybe also not unlike your corner of the world) is positively cuckoo for fireworks. The past couple of weeks have been rough on her. (That’s her in the picture on the right, in happier days). […]

July 10, 2014

I was interviewed last week by my friend Lisa Esile (you know her…she’s the one who wrote that really cool piece about her year of silence that I shared with you a couple weeks ago). Anyway, Lisa teaches and writes about very similar things that I teach and write about. We have a lot in […]

Where Advice Falls Short

July 3, 2014

Have you ever wondered why we’re so set on taking advice from others?   When we ask someone else what they think or what they would do, we get their wisdom, their perspective, and a plan of action that would work for them. We do not always get wisdom, perspective, or a plan of action that […]

Problems Don’t Have Roots

June 26, 2014

Problems don’t have roots.  They aren’t deep-seated. Just the opposite is true, actually. Any and all problems you might have are—relatively speaking–quite shallow. They are right there on the surface, created by (and existing completely within) the current moment in which you experience them. When the thought that brought those problems to the surface fades—as […]

A Super Entertaining Story about Silence and Peace

June 19, 2014

I’d really love it if you’d read this hilarious and entertaining article.     My friend Lisa wrote it about her year of silence. Her year of silence was a long time ago, but as you can imagine, spending a year in silence is kind of a big deal in one’s life. So it took […]
