Below is my reply to an email that I received last week. The seeker who wrote the email expressed her concerns over sending in her application. The specific words of her email are not important, so I have left that out. I have answered several other emails and phone calls from others feeling the same way as the one who I responded to in the email. While the specifics are different, the root emotion/feeling is the same - fear. Thus, I address each of you dealing with the hindrance of fear of making the leap of faith and sending in your essay.
May this help you in your decision and empower you to follow your spirit.
Understand that I would never attempt to force or to "sell" someone on the Project, it doesn't work that way. It must be something that you want and that you are willing to let go and/or sacrifice in order to make the change you know you need.
Thank you for writing to me and for being so open and honest. Like you, there are others who have shared their concerns and fears about making the jump and sending in their application. Though the reasons vary, at the root, it's the same - fear. Fear comes in many forms and sometimes it can be a positive force to keep us from being harmed, other times it is not of the Light and can hinder us in finding true happiness, joy and peace. The latter is what you are feeling. Correct?
In large part, the Project helps us to find balance in life, so it becomes a win/win by helping us to be at our best so we can be at our best for others. Thus, it is far from self indulgent, it's actually no different than someone getting free from anything that holds them back in life: addictions, attachments, self-sabotage, overworking, laziness, you name it. Getting free in order to be a better human is a very selfless endeavor, when done correctly.
If I had to guess there are other, underlying feelings and concerns that contribute to your feelings and I'm confident that by participating in the Project, you could get past those feelings as well. Not that this is a "cure all" program, but it really does help us to find peace and balance in all areas of health, fitness, and well-being.
I am confident that should you make the decision to let go of your fears and devote yourself to completing the Project, you will VERY happy you did. Why sit on the sidelines and be a spectator when you can jump into the game?
Great question! Thanks for asking.
