BK's Blog: Jake Ducey -- What if You Took the Risk?

The purpose of life is not to be happy, although that can be experienced during your true journey. The purpose of life is to find yourself, and the whole universe is set up to help you with that. But are you holding that perspective, for your perspective is EVERYTHING? Or are you just trying to get through the day? All of experience has a purpose, but it is hidden, a mystery and your task is to discover it. To 'dis-cover' reveal it to yourself through contemplation and sharing with others.

Jake Ducey -- What if You Took the Risk?

October 22, 2013

Do you feel it too? That feeling that you know you must follow. But the mind says not to do it. That it’s too risky. That it’s unsafe. That it’s too crazy and different and nerve racking.

But what I believe is the most dangerous thing to do is to give up your desires, your dreams, due to the fear of the unknown. It’s all a risk; to stay where you are, or to take a leap, to be different or fit in.

Now is the time that we must step into that feeling. The one that makes no sense to your mind, the one that makes no sense to other people; only to your heart. The whisper of your soul may sound faint and irrational, but no one who settled for safe and ordinary has ever found his or her true north.

I know it’s scary to leave behind what dismisses the freedom of your soul, but just beyond your edge there is a new horizon. So much beauty, so many new colors and feelings and surprises await on the new sunrise of today's choice.
