“Grandma, I’m afraid I can’t make it… “
“My child, your fear is not to fail, but the fear of seeing your dreams come true. We were taught to question our abilities, to not want too much, to settle. And that’s why we fear we’ll actually succeed. Finally letting our inner light shine! Kick your fear, my daughter, and run carefree in the grass of a thousand possibilities! “
“Why would I ever be afraid to see my plans realized?” “
“We do everything not to achieve them, to stay low in our dreams, to put out our inner fire. We constantly fight to keep our will to live at bay. Otherwise everything would explode, inside and outside of us. Relationships, thoughts and gazes would ignite with true passion. And passion scares, my dear, because it is the most powerful tool of love: it accepts no compromises, pushes away any falsehood, seeks only the truth! Are you ready to die so you can fully come to life? “
“The choice is a difficult one… “
“It’s harder to hold back all that life force that’s about to explode inside of you. Do you feel, my child, that arrogant attraction towards your realization? Liberal! It needs to flow, to penetrate every cell of the body, to flow through your blood. Don’t waste your time and energy blocking the flow of your destiny! Breathe deeply, relax your body and listen to the only voice that makes sense to hear, that of your beautiful heart! “
