& here's a new thought:
"RISK" is a misused word & principle.
Risk is when something quantifiable is at stake.
For the psyche, that implies involvement of expectation, of outcome.
Subtract those & there is the simplicity of movement, of free process.
Risk is a myth!
Outcome is a myth!
Outcome is a bi-product of my buying into the illusion of control.
Risk is how I measure the size of both effort and outcome,
how I puff up my ego.
Outcome is just bait.
The bigger I puff it up to be,
the more 'worthy' I tell myself I am if I 'get it'.
That's a false equation!
Predetermined outcome is how I scare myself away
from movement of any sort:
Fear Factor invocation!
Fear is another misused word & principle!
Fear & Risk are both dependent on outcome and expectation.
Fear is just another myth.
Outcome & expectation are about ego:
And the more vested my ego,
the greater my 'fear',
and the more amplified my sense of 'risk'.
Both gratifying, & paralyzing, that little formula.
so what is the formula,
absent of both of those variables,
absent also of ego?
Beautiful to contemplate
because it leaves everything
Released, freed, creative, flexible, receptive.
It's just --- LIFE, then.
Listening + Intuition = Movement
Movement = Process
& Process is my greatest teacher & guide,
if I just get out of its way!
