Retrograde: On Purpose
Sprinkled throughout the perennial wisdom is an idea that the world and how humans live within it, is backward or upside down.
You might think of the options as being simply fear or Purpose.
For those who have chosen the path of purpose, there are countless rites of passage. These are key learning stages that open a gate to advances in clarity, power, and speed.
One of the very early rites of passage is learning there are but two choices… fear or Purpose.
The contrast between fear and purpose brings a drastic clarity. The power of purpose to dissolve fear becomes magnified. The speed of ability to shift from fear to purpose increases dramatically. This passage leads to a point of no return.
Once achieved, it is impossible to unknow this understanding. You know you have moved through this passage when learning the choice of fear or Purpose is absolute. It will become as concrete as your learning of the alphabet. No matter how hard you try, you cannot convince yourself a “B” is a “Z”.
Once the understanding of fear or Purpose is achieved there is no going back to the confusion. Observation of humanity, reveals that most motivation is fear. Fears manifest in the common beliefs, “I am not good enough, I am unwanted, and/or I am unlovable”. The motivation from these becomes fear as we work to prove we are “good, wanted, and lovable”. Yet these can never be proven in any definite or absolute way. So the fear builds, grows, and becomes the burning fuel of life.
To live and practice a chosen Purpose is retrograde to the fear-driven motivations of the world and how most humans live within it. That is to say, the flow of life On Purpose is backward relative to the world.
To live On Purpose Now is retrograde.
-The beginning of Love is the end of the Ego.
-The choice of fear or Purpose is a reflection of which one you are investing faith in.
-When your faith is in Love, fear dissolves and the Ego fades.
When these occur, previously unimagined ways of being creative, expressions of your essential and Creative Self become the natural flow of thought, energy, and action.
I am going retrograde the best I can this week… On Purpose.
