This is going to sound weird because I’m not a believer in “The Secret,” or manifestation in that sense, and I don’t really like to talk too much about myself, or at all really, but…

There is a rare and very real universal expression wherein the participant (in this case me) lies before the world with their mind, body, and soul fully exposed, so much so that they open themselves to any outcome that may find them (success, failure, madness, loss). Yet, in trusting their reality to this external other (note I said other not God), and in fully embracing the reality of their own potential demise, things work out in exactly the way they need to work out in order to achieve what would become the best case scenario for the future, albeit one that could not have been predicted.

There is certainly pain and no doubt a price is paid, but it’s hard not to see a glimmer of divine intervention.

I don’t know how or why this happens, or why one must risk it all in order to move forward, but having survived many such occurrences, the pattern is indeed discernible.

I say this not to sound smart or wise, but because I know there are others out there looking for reasons to take a leap of faith, and I’m here to tell you that it’s not something to fear. Standing still is what should scare you.
