A choice between two things is not a choice; it’s a dilemma. Instead of setting up your cognitive filters to sort things into binary options, what if you changed your agenda from making the right choice or the best choice to discovering how to generate choices in the form of new and unanticipated possibilities?
In an interview with the BBC in 1999, David Bowie said, “I have no knowledge of who I am, but I am extremely happy.” Yet clearly he was a great creator. Somehow he disentangled stories about self and purpose and creating in a way that allowed him to be free, prolific, passionate, effective.
As you reflect on your purpose, I invite you to notice the difference between choosing a purpose as a creative expression and “finding your purpose.” Let me know how it goes by sharing your thoughts in the comments. ♥
If not now, when? How shall we live wisely and well? Free Wholeness Hangout replay
This is the promised link to watch the Wholeness Hangout with Bill Cumming. Because of our conflicting schedules, this hangout was recorded. I promise I will have Bill back another time when you can join us live.
I love all my Wholeness Hangout guests, and I admit that of all of them Bill Cumming has been my favorite. Just being in this man’s field is transformative, provided you let his energy and love in. I hope you will give yourself that gift.
Our conversation about what it means to live wisely and well is a resounding wake up call to show up in and for your life.
And it is a wake up call with a twist.
The twist is this. Bill calls to YOU (the person reading these words) to know that you are loved, valued, and appreciated.
He is committed from the soles of his feet to the top of his head to:
- Having a world that works for everyone.
- Allowing all 7 billion of us to know that we are loved without condition.
- Allowing all people to experience that there is always a choice.
- Supporting individuals in knowing that their value and worth in the world is a given.
It’s his life’s work, and he speaks to it with great authority.

Soul Speak: An invitation to wake up and light up the world
While we are on the topic of transformation, if you haven’t already heard about it, I invite you to check out Soul Speak this season in honor of Wayne Dyer.
When Sheldon Pizzinat invited me to participate in Soul Speak, I hesitated. Does the world really need another telesummit, even one with a spiritual theme?
I said yes because something in Sheldon’s vibe just felt right to me. I sensed that he would be having conversations with the potential to enliven and awaken listeners. Conversations that would add light and meaning to the world.
The intent of the series is to promote awakening so you can more fully embody your talents and gifts and light up the world, something Dr. Dyer did with grace.
A riff on two quotes:
“Every choice we make has energetic consequences. Choosing matters. Who we choose to hang out with matters, because each encounter shapes us, and shapes our world. How and where we choose to spend our time, energy, resources and attention matters, because these choices shape our becoming, and shape the world in which we live.
“There are no inconsequential choices. The seemingly innocuous choices we make day to day are powerful.
“Receive the gift of choice with a discerning and grateful heart. Honour the choices that present themselves in each moment. Step into your soul’s light, and choose—choose from there.”
~ Hiro Boga
““Good luck and good fortune are about choice, not about control. When we are clear that we are choosing our lives, and when we understand that making choices is not the same as managing the outcome, luck and fortune find us every time.”
~ Molly Gordon
This note is for you if you know deep inside that you are an amazing being with infinite potential. You really get that creating is your nature. But there’s some connection between your creative-being and your daily-doing that isn’t completely . . . well . . . connected.
For some reason (and God knows you’ve thought about a lot of possible reasons), you’re not stepping up.
You’re not doing the thing.
If that’s the way it’s been, and you’re ready for a change, I invite you to join me for a five month adventure called “Come Alive and Do the Thing!”
Get your mojo on with a focused mastermind group
Come Alive and Do the Thing! is an eight-person Mastermind group that will meet by videoconference weekly for five months. I’ll be working with each participant to thoroughly understand his or her issues, goals, and dreams so that we hit the ground running with customized structures and experiences.
Through coaching, exercises, and mutual support you will get off the sidelines of your life. And if you sign up before next Wednesday (11/18/15) at 8am Pacific time, you’ll save $200. That’s something to dance about.
Check it out now; the early registration discount ends Wednesday morning. If you have questions, feel free to phone me at +1-360-697-7022 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
And have a great weekend!
