I love to camp. The smell of a campfire, the quiet of the mountains, the fresh, crisp air. What could be better?
And, of course, a critical piece was the campfire!
I remember gathering the small, dead twigs as a small girl while my dad made sure that there were "boulders" or what looked like boulders, around the edge of what would be the fire. Crumple a little paper, lay the twigs like teepees. Be very careful to keep the shape so that air could flow in and help.
Only when you were old enough were you allowed to light the match and start the papers on fire.
Of course, the first spark was not the end, but the beginning. Gather more twigs. Look for medium size wood. Hurry and gather more so that the fire does not die out.
You had to build the fire, tend the fire, and add food to increase the size of the fire. A fire takes time and intension.
You have spend 20+ years living a life. That living has created habits, established brain pathways, and has caused automatic systems to emerge.
Now, you want to make some changes. You want to build from a new passion. You want to expression from your Heart. You want the freedom to live life on YOUR terms. You want a New Fire.
Do you have as much commitment to building this new life as you do to building a campfire?
