trail blazin’ in the dark…
December 27, 2012
“That’s just not the way the world works Pache…” he said.
“I KNOW…I know that, I don’t care! …but I am part of creating a new world. ” I said.
It was heated, he was playing devil’ s advocate. He was just trying to protect me.
…but there is no protection from this dream.
He can’t protect me from this. It scares me a little… and I am overwhelmed.
In that moment, I felt a little crazy and a bit defeated…and doubtful.
…but not enough to stop me.
because sometimes to just have to believe in something that seems completely impossible to everyone around you,
hold tight to a hope that the world can be a certain way (or already is),
trust that we can love in the deepest dark,
know that we can change or find something in ourselves that was always there but we just didn’t know how to let it out,
stand crazy bold in that one thing can change everything,
because nothing changes until someone believes it can.
…so today I am trail blazin’ in the dark. …and I am keenly aware of all the work ahead… and I know on a new level the costs of a dream and the strength required…the risk of creativity and hope…
…and I feel the weight and complication of the world and yet the simplicity and power of kindness.
in the end, the truth always rises… the call is too loud to ignore.
…and I am holding tight to this book today. Thanks Blullers!
