You Are Here For A Reason

You Are Here For A Reason

April 26, 2017

Editors note: this post was originally featured in 2014. New posts on The C2C return May 15, 2017 You are here for a reason. Your birth was no coincidence. Everything happened at the time it needed for you to be here on this earth at this time. There is no one else who can fill your shoes. There is no one else who can be you in the way you can be you. The people who love you, love you for who you are, there is no reason to pretend to be someone else or something else.

The Courageous Creator Manifesto

Editors note: this post was originally featured in 2014. New posts on The C2C return May 15, 2017 We, courageous creators, believe that life is an opportunity to create the life we want and create the kind of work we dream of one day sharing with the world.

We love to dream and we honor these dreams as sacred. We don’t let the haters bring us down, and, in fact, we […]

New posts on The C2C return May 15,2017 ”Sustained conscious attention severs the link between pain-body and your thought processes and brings about the process of transmutation. It is as if the pain becomes fuel for the flame of your consciousness, which then burns more brightly as a result. This is the esoteric meaning of the ancient art of alchemy: the transmutation of base metal into gold, of suffering into consciousness. The split within is healed, and you become whole again. Your responsibility is not to create further pain.” – Eckhart Tolle “Life is pain, highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.’ – from “The Princess Bride” Rumi, a 13th-century poet and theologian from Persia, once said that it was through pain that we can reach a state of enlightened living. He even once compared our souls as a house and that through this house many different “visitors” arrive and […]

There is a strong pull toward wanting to release, heal, get rid of the things that are making you sick / depressed / unhappy. C. You may also feel a powerful longing to shed what feels unnatural, fake, superficial or foreign to you. D. You may even notice a tendency toward avoiding superfluous or wasteful activities. F. Also: a wanting to get going already on fulfilling your destiny, making your dreams come true, finding and committing to your one true love, etc. G. You may find yourself encountering greater and greater friction, jolts, “earthquakes,” tumult, awkwardness, shifting within yourself and without yourself as the dark and negative makes its way out of […]
