Lately I have been finding myself more and more drawn back to my roots as an actor and specifically to the voiceover career which I neglected and even rejected for a time because I thought the spiritual business I was building was IT – the one and only answer to the question of who I am and what I do.
And yet, I’ve learned that THERE IS NO IT.
There is only our present moment focus and whatever we choose to crystallize with our attention at the time; the intuitively guided (and often illogical-seeming) turns we take along the uncharted and continuous path as it appears. Everything we do and build serves its purpose at the time, however long it lasts and however large it grows.
As long as you are truly listening to and honoring where you’re at now and where you’d like to go, maybe that’s enough. And maybe that’s perfect. And maybe that’s freedom. And maybe that’s joy. And maybe that’s truth. And maybe that’s the way.
As Walt Whitman said, “I am large, I contain multitudes.”
And maybe that’s actually how we serve each other best. By letting our eclectic combinations of weird interests and passions and history and skills make it difficult for us to fit in any one identity box. Unless we want to fit ourselves in there! Because really, who actually cares about your identity or gets to choose it but you?
