What Would You Do If There Was Nothing You Had To Do?

not waiting, but watchingWhat would you do if there was nothing you had to do?

Would you take the express, or the local?

Would you order coffee to go, or grind the beans yourself and enjoy the fragrance of fresh coffee wafting through the house and onto the terrace?

Would you set off on an adventure into the unknown or would you wander slowly to the hammock to rest?

What would you do if there was nothing you had to do?

If you are ready to go on a path of self-discovery, to learn what your authentic self is truly asking of you in this life, then I can show you how.

Knight of ChalicesYou don’t have to give up anything in order to find out what you really want out of life. This is an inward journey, and it may have little to do with quitting your job, leaving your spouse, or spending less time with your children. You are going to travel a road that, as the Sufis say, is in the world but not of the world. This journey will take you through a deeply personal process so that you emerge into your ‘real’ world in a spirit of mindful self-creation and joy.

The mystic and psychologist Carl G. Jung called this process “individuation.” Others refer to it as self-actualization, self-integration, or “finding yourself.”

Usually, this is not an easy journey. It’s work. But I offer a way that transforms the work into play.

Most of our lives are measured out in coffee spoons—meaning we wake up, brush our teeth, have our coffee, go to work, recover from the day, then it’s time for dinner, time to go to bed … there’s family-and-friend time in there, and, if you’re lucky, perhaps a vacation—which means vacation from work. And, typically, vacations are not excellent opportunities to find yourself. When you wake up in a strange hotel room or sip a margarita by the pool, you’re recovering from work, not finding your inner peace. You’re saying to yourself, I’m so glad I’m here—what a relief—it’s snowing up north … nice getaway.

So I’m wondering this: why would you want to get away from your daily life?

WWYDIOnly you have your own answers. I can give you a map, a compass, and solid walking shoes. The map is your powerful mind; your compass is your authentic feeling-nature. The shoes are your physical body and the time and space in which you live.

Most importantly, I’m giving you twenty-two keys that will open twenty-two doors, each one going deeper into discovering your heart’s desire.

If you do the practices I outline in my course “What Would You Do If There Was Nothing You Had To Do? Practices to create your life the way you want it to be”, I believe you will find out not only what you would do if there was nothing you had to do, but who you really are and your soul’s purpose.
