If you’ve ever wished you had a
super-power, brace for impact.
Because you do.
The secret lies in one small word, three little letters that change everything.
We human beings are seekers. It’s what we do, every minute of every day. Sometimes what we look for is practical – our next meal, money to pay the rent, a replacement for the lawn mower that gave out halfway across the back yard.
Sometimes we’re in pursuit of material things, like a new convertible or a pair of hot pink shoes. At other times, we seek the intangible, like love and peace and a sense of purpose.
Whether silly or sacred, all of our seeking has a purpose: we want to feel good. Psychology tells us that we’re being driven by the twin fundamental needs of avoiding pain and experiencing pleasure. Yet if that’s all there is to it, to us, why don’t we feel good? We’ve paid the rent, and we’re driving that new convertible out on a date with someone who loves us. We should be feeling great, but we’re not. Why?
Because we already have what we’re really seeking, but most of us hid it away a long time ago and we’ve forgotten where we put it. The things we acquire can’t help us find it, and they can’t replace it.
We have lost our joy. And we've been searching for it ever since.
Joy is your birthright, the essence of who you truly are.
When you remember that, you regain the power
to create the life of your deepest dreams.
The idea that we have lost something magical and must find it to save ourselves may sound like a fairy tale, or something out of ancient mythology. And so it is. Fairy tales and myths are designed to reveal a central truth, but only to those who seek it. Joseph Campbell referred to this as “The Hero’s Journey”:
“If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track
that has been there all the while, waiting for you,
and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living.
Follow your bliss and don't be afraid,
and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.”
To follow your bliss, you will need a bit of effort, an open mind, and willingness to take a risk or two. Is it the right time to begin this quest? Only you can know the answer, but this much is certain: There is no past. There is no future. There is only this perfect point in time, here and now. The power to change is gathered in this moment, waiting to be unleashed. If you're ready to reclaim your joy, the LightLadder can be your guide on the journey.
