Truly Powerful People (285)

285.
Join me in inspiring truly powerful people. Each day I will add a new thought, story or idea to support your quest and mine.

In your story, the-story-that-you-tell-yourself-about-yourself, your have an underlying force or impulse that drives you. I call this your Root Story. Alan Seale calls it your Soul Mission. Many traditions identify it as a Calling. You might understand it as your Role-in-Life. Have you given a name to what is yours to do?

Everyone has a Root Story, a Soul Mission. Everyone has a Calling, a Role to play in the health of their society and the greater world. It is common to be confused about what it is and even more common to know it but to fear it, hide it, or deny it. Sometimes we know it and want it to be something else.

When we embrace our Root Story, take off the reins and let it run, we step into our power. Actually, it is more appropriate to say that power steps into us. Power is available to us all the time but like a river we place dams on it and interrupt its flow. We tell ourselves that the dams are there for power generation but in truth the dams are not about power at all; they are mechanisms for control. The dams are the things we try to control but can’t – like other people’s perceptions The dams are the fear stories we whip up, “What will happen to me if I am seen, heard, or not understood?” The dams are there when you find yourself playing small so as not to draw too much attention.

This world needs less dams and more powerful people. Name your Root Story, own what is yours to do. And then enjoy blowing up all those dams!
