“We are pioneers, we are. We are some of the first people to explore a way of being that is not premised on survivalism as our operating principle. A new way of being is taking root, one that is premised on authenticity above all else. We are beginning to insist on living from our truth, choosing our path and our connections from the soul outward.” ~ Jeff Brown
We all have genius. There is a path for us to follow, from our deepest joy, that will provide for us and at which we are BRILLIANT! For each of us, there is something–a job, vocation, role–born of our authentic self that taps our joy and connects our consciousness to the vast resources of the Universe.
This heady and powerful elixir is a revolutionary way to experience life. Our pioneering path fuels our Spirit. Our talent for this special work/craft/path is different from anything we have known prior. When we endeavor in this “something,” we tap into, and work directly from, our higher self. This is true genius.
We all carry this genius. We find it by following our joy and believing that we can have work that is deeply meaningful and fulfilling to us. For some, our genius is already a “job”, like lawyer, journalist, father, or nurse. For others, we may need to use our imagination to determine how to create a job from their joy. For others still, our genius isn’t WHAT you do but HOW you do it.
No matter how your genius manifests, keep looking till you find it. Pay attention to what brings you joy and child-like wonder, then follow it, even if it seems improbable or frivolous, our genius is neither. Seek community and encourage your fellow pioneers because this path isn’t necessarily easy but it is worth it. The treasures along the way are great.
