There’s a story in the Bible about Jesus cursing a fig tree, because it wasn’t bearing fruit. The fig tree dies.
Seems kind of out of character for the Christ, doesn’t it?
But it’s a cautionary tale for all of us; if we don’t produce the fruit of our kind, if we do not allow that which is our nature to come to fruition, then Life will get rid of our current forms and circumstances.
We live in a culture that seems to have been built on a single main thrust of, “Buy more! Get this!”
The promise of these advertising messages is that you’ll gain more comfort, convenience, safety and security by these external means.
But this comfort and convenience is holding you back from bearing the fruit of who you really are.
If you want to be free, fulfilled, progressive, innovative and creative, to live a life of true vision and purpose, you have to grow and bear creative fruit. You must allow your evolutionary impulse to have its way with you.
By prioritizing comfort or convenience and avoiding growth, you’re in opposition to Life itself, and you will experience crisis, stagnation, and – like the fig tree – death in some form or fashion.
Life isn’t a problem to be solved. It’s a mystery to be lived. Understand that the pursuit of comfort and convenience at the expense of the emergence of your soul’s purpose will hold you back every time …and – ever-so-softly – kill you.
Listen to “Killing Us Softly,” to see what’s holding you back, discover how to become unleashed again, and allow yourself to finally rest in the part of your being that’s on the emerging edge!
