Today marks one month into a six-month journey around the world. I remember the exact day I began planning this tour. It was a dare to myself create the path and then follow it.
Honestly, I have moments where I freak out and wish I was home (or that some of home were here). Then there are the times when I would not want to be anywhere but here, when the path presents itself in the moment to walk where I have never gone before.
When I drop into my heart, I find myself always home. Here is an excerpt from The Art of Limitless Living when I was planning this trip. I suppose putting the desire into publication was my way of calling my own bluff. Live the principles of the work and work to principally play. The Art of Limitless Living, one heart-print at a time.
“I love to teach physics to explain transformation. But change isn’t rocket science. If we want to experience change, we must make different choices. If we want complete change, we choose from the heart and allow the mind to follow.
Heart–mind synthesis is a tango with the universe, establishing a rhythmic flow with the unified heart of completion and then making deliberate choices that align with new heart-prints.
Grab a pen and paper if you choose. Consider a situation, challenge, or opportunity in your life in which you currently face fear, confusion, uncertainty, and a sense of limitation. From the mind’s perspective, write down what occurs for you.
Here is my heart–mind synthesis process in real time:
Fact: I have a dream I would like to manifest as my reality. I would like to do a six-month around-the-world Art of Limitless Living seminar tour to expand the M-Joy teachings into new countries, combined with my love for travel.
Mind: This will require a lot of planning. Perhaps it is too much work.
Placeholder: A fear of actualizing the true authentic desire is cloaked in the so-called logical notion that this vision is too much effort.
Mind: I will need to rent out my home while away to help offset my expenses. This will be a major ordeal, so maybe I should not go.
Placeholder: Fear of lack of abundance is cloaked in justified inconvenience.
Mind: World events are making international travel more challenging. What if the border closes? Travel is a hassle. It is safer to stay home.
Placeholder: Fear of following through on this dream, cloaked in flawed logic of “travel is risky,” even though staying home really is no safer.
Mind: What if someone I love dies while I am away and I am halfway across the world? Better to wait until a later date.
Placeholder: Fear of living cloaked in fear of death.
Heart: Seriously, mind, please quiet this noise. Thank you for trying to protect me, but you may as well bring out my own coffin now and bury me in it with all these fear-based limiting thoughts. Trust this true authentic desire that is welling up from the field of the heart. Allow for heart–mind
synthesis to support the manifestation of this creative endeavor.
Mind: Don’t be so sure. Anything can go wrong.
Heart: I am certain that all may go well too. If you do not mind, we will leverage your laser-like focus to calibrate where to go, what to do, and how to play in all matters, not from a space of fear but from a space of grace and intuitive discernment.
Heart–Mind Synthesis: Synergy. Yes we can work together to make congruent choices aligned with the coherence of the heart. We can do our research to choose our countries wisely, secure our venues, hire a realtor in advance to rent out our home, purchase discounted airfare, and figure out how to pack for several seasons of travel. With proper lead time and active promotion, the events will fill with students who resonate with the heart of our teachings. This will be a wholehearted travel adventure; the art of limitless living.
