“We’re Working Up to It!”

WELCOME!

I know that most folks will think that this is a strange title for a love and relationship blog post.

I live my work.

I absolutely adore and cherish my wife for all that she is and for what she brings to the world.

I am learning to fully accept and love myself for the multi faceted man that I AM.

I find inspiration and lessons in the experiences of everyday life.

I work very hard every day -at all levels- to become more of what I teach which is Love.

I will begin by sharing with you a true story from the time my wife and I lived in Eugene, Oregon.

We lived in a beautiful rural neighborhood in the wooded hills just outside of Eugene.

We knew all of our neighbors and had positive, mutually supportive relationships with all of them.

Across the street from us there lived this rather introverted middle aged man who worked at the JC teaching ‘Computer Science.’  He was friendly, kind, and collected coins and stamps that he loved to talk about.

One day we were talking about how blessed we were to live amongst all of this beauty.

Then he shared with me that he had recently joined a hiking club.

He was very excited about his new found friends and the activities they did together.

He shared in great detail about all of the videos he and his fellow club members watched about the beautiful hiking trails of the Pacific Northwest.

Since my wife and I were new to the area, and we just love to hike and take walks together, I asked him if we could join him and his friends on a hike sometime.

What he said was nothing short of amazing to me.

He said, ”We don’t actually go for any hikes or walks … we just watch these videos that depict the beautiful trails and scenery …  we’re working up to taking our first hike together”.

Naturally, I thought that some how I had misunderstood him as I was helping him with a project while we talked.

So, I asked him to clarify what he had said.

Sure enough, he and hiking friends had been watching videos about hiking the trails of the Pacific Northwest for almost 6 months but had not gone on a single outing together.

He again frankly said, “We’re working up to it.”

Now I am not sitting here in any sort of negative judgment about this kind man.

In recalling this experience with my wife in a conversation over breakfast several questions occurred to me:

  1. Where in my own life am I an observer waiting to take action?
  2. Why do I postpone taking action that I know will be beneficial?
  3. Who won the world cup in 1988?– Sorry, this question was entered in error, those responsible have been sacked!

So, I would like to ask you, my readers, the same questions:

  1. Where in your life are you an observer waiting to take action?
  2. Why do you postpone taking action that you know would be beneficial?

Please take a few moments to carefully consider these questions.

I have two more questions for you:

What would it be like to live the rest of your life without taking action ‘the’ action that you have been ‘postponing’?

When it comes to your love life, what are you working up to?

Inspiration and Getting into Inspired Action

In this context it is very important to note that the longer the period of time between the inspiration to act and the action taken, the less effective the action generally is in solving the problem or challenge that initially spawned the inspiration.

The ancient Greeks understood the connection between inspiration and taking inspired action.

Carpe diem- ‘seize the day’

So one very important thing to note is that we must all learn to answer the call of our own inspirations in a timely manner, especially when we are called to take actions that are outside of our comfort zone.

This willingness to act on our inspirations is what really gets the creative juices flowing and keeps us moving forward.

The more we are truly willing to get into ‘uncomfortable imperfect action’ – to stretch beyond what we currently think, do, and say –  the more our inspirationally based, imaginative capacities can serve us in our quest for love and fulfillment.

The courage to get into uncomfortable imperfect action always comes to us after we get into action.

Ask anyone who has knowingly put their life on the line and they will tell you that the courage to act comes to them in the moment they get into action.

Yes, I have direct experience with this, many times over.

From an energetic point of view- by embracing and acting on our inspirations we are letting things naturally flow.  This is sometimes referred to as getting out of our own way.

So in conclusion: being open and willing to take new and unfamiliar steps is how we get unstuck and moving forward and what we must do to keep the proverbial ball rolling once we are headed in the right direction.

Hey Ron

Profound insight:
Where in your life are you an observer waiting to take action?
Why do you postpone taking action that you know would be beneficial?

The first question threw me completely off balance. That’s it. As people we are great observers. We love to watch and say we will do something and actually getting around to doing it is tough stuff. That leads to question 2 which is different (and not too dissimilar) for all of us.

I also see a lot of people ‘get’ what is going on with their lives intellectually and know what to change. They even know how. Then they observe and don’t actually change.

Thanks for the insight

Love & Courage
Stephen
