My name is Karen Davis King and I’m here to start an Evolution Revolution.
What does it mean to be a “Professional Human?” It means PRESENCE. The human experience is full of ups and downs, pains and pleasures. It is a buffet of tumultuous flavors of emotions and feelings and we often prefer to choose only the pleasant ones and avoid the things that make us feel uncomfortable. But discomfort is where you find yourself. C.S. Lewis put it this way: “Pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our consciences, but shouts in our pains. It is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”
When we get too comfortable, life loses its colors and wild wonder. We grow numb. Most of us prefer to be comfortable, but what if we learned how to experience joy and excitement while standing in the discomfort? What if we began to see that place as just another glorious step across the dance floor of the MOTHER LOAD of parties? What if we allowed ourselves to listen to our inner voice that demands an authentic life? You know the voice I’m talking about. It’s not a voice you hear, but rather FEEL.
You felt it when they told you to play it safe instead of riding your dream off into the sunset. You felt it when you saw the magazine cover that made you cram a meal replacement down your throat when your body was begging you for nourishment in the shape of a well-rounded plate of actual food. You felt it when the sex was void of that connection you long for and the kind of passion that gets you thrown up against the wall and leaves you smiling for days.
You feel it when you break promises to yourself. You didn’t meditate this morning, you missed yoga class…again…That trip you’ve been wanting to take or the business you’ve always wanted to start, still waits for you to map out a plan. And another week of choosing a life you tolerate over a life you are madly in love with comes and goes.
The passion, purpose and pleasure that waits for you on the other side of
your fears and doubts are constantly stirring within you, demanding attention. Sometimes they call like a tender, loving caress of a lover and other times, they come calling like a violent cancer. They dial in with persistence and they won’t stop, until you answer. Think of it like a debt collector. They don’t care about your lame excuses why you can’t nurture your mind, body and spirit or why it’s not the right time to take action. They only want one thing. They know that you have something valuable to give the world…and that gift is not about you. They know that it is your divine responsibility to live well and embrace the art of being a human being on planet earth, so that others can benefit from your joy, wealth and experiences.
What if today were the day? What might be possible if you were to answer that call and started adding more color, more texture and energy to your beautiful OPUS? Your MASTERPIECE is waiting.
