There’s more to this than you realize.
You’re part of a project that’s too vast for you to comprehend.
The impulses that guide your life
don’t come from you, but through you –
you’re a channel, not the source.
But the impulses aren’t flowing through you clearly –
you’ve let the channel become obstructed
by your self-doubt and fear.
So the force has been diluted, the message has been distorted,
and the river that should be rushing through you
is a halting, stuttering stream.
But this project is too important to interfere with.
There’s too much at stake to stand in its way –
to be distracted by your own fears and desires
to be afraid of failure or wary of success
to worry about looking foolish or loosing face
to wonder who’s watching you and what they might be thinking
and be discouraged if no one seems to be watching at all
or frustrated if they don’t seem to understand.
It’s enough to do what you’re meant to do
to express what you’re meant to express
without evaluating your effect
or considering results or reactions.
There’s too much at stake for you to become
anything less than you were meant to be,
to leave the smallest part of your potential unfulfilled
or the smallest piece of your message unsaid.
This is the time to be fearless
so that the force can flow through you freely.
This is the time to be empty
so that the source can fill you completely.
This is the time to step aside
and let the project unfold through you.
