“The fool is a great rebel, able to thwart convention and tell the truth without restraint. Your heart is a wonderful, powerful, sacred fool! It cares not for the right way to do things. It cares not for what the mind says is real and not real. It lives according to an inner wisdom that cannot be dictated to or controlled by anything! It loves, it lives and it is what it is!” ~ Alana Fairchild
The sacred fool trusts completely. She trusts the ebb and flow of life. There is little resistance in what she does. She is willing to leave behind what has been because it no longer feels right to stay attached to it. She recognises fear but doesn’t get pulled by it, like she gets pulled by joy. And this is her message. To let life happen, to go out and dance in the rain without fear of falling sick, to not resist the currents that may seem to be carrying you way from your destination (trust that it may be a short cut).
If this feels doable to you then you haven’t really stepped out of your comfort zone. It should feel wild and crazy and scary and exciting. If you find that people around you are questioning your sanity, then you know you are on to something big. In an ideal world we have family and friends supporting us all the way but in the real world many of them will find it challenging to be supportive in what they might think is a crazy endeavor and that’s all right. When you do the crazy dance, you give permission to others to come and join in the dance as well. And more often than not these very people will join in soon enough.
Be the fool today and step into a wild adventure today.
If you are not feeling fool enough, put on some music and do the crazy dance. You know, that one where you flail your arms and legs about and make funny faces. Enjoy 🤗.
