Journey To Me
8/31/2006 12:11:42 PM
In 1996, after a very successful career as a therapist, hospital administrator, management trainer, consultant and national lecturer, I turned my back to my life and went searching. . . I basically had the American dream, but I felt angry that I performed life rather than live it. I believed that every thought had somehow been programmed by someone or something. Whether it was parenting, education, news, church, etc. I pondered what it would be like to be pre-historic man and jump out of the cave and wonder what to hell that bright yellow thing was that was blinding me. I wanted to define life for myself. So I finished up my last contract and turned down new work and one day I was FREE. That day I started a journey, and the next two years I found out amazing things. This is the first entry in my journal about that journey.
A JOURNEY TO ME
My journey begins with the openness and rights that I possess as a human, to disregard all maps, direction, history, and abandon all of life's definitions. Such openness and pondering will surely blind me to the potholes, raging waters, unbearable sun and unknowns. But only at that moment will I truly find out about myself . . . My belief is that real courage isn't found in the masses, it is found standing alone.
Afterall, if I only take on the history of the people before me, am I not giving up my purpose to find out who I am? Am I not surrendering my ability to search my own soul and ask myself about my very own special existence?
Maybe I shouldn't absorb the libraries of life so much, nor the laws established by the people before me? Maybe, just maybe, I should breathe in the responsibility of my existence and sort out life for myself. I chose at this very moment to be a unique creation. I welcome the expedition to discover the real me. . .
