You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration. – James Allen
We are so often kept small by the thing that must remain the same. Or the thing we must control.
(Some form of) Fear is what keeps us clinging to this “thing.”
We think that if we can only manage and control this thing that we will be okay.
And, mistakenly, we under-estimate the influence of this thing on the shape, trajectory and size of our lives.
Yet, if we direct our focus to a great ambition, an aspiration worthy of our human life – a life of consciousness, power and creativity – we overwhelm this stubborn desire for safety (and the smallness that results… ).
We then begin to live a life that indeed is, and gets even more by the day, great.
