“…..so I called the moon from across the sky
She rushed within my reach….silently inviting me to touch her I smiled at her beauty but didn’t extend my hand
I felt fear…fear that I could get burned
I called her closer yet. Once again she complied.
The child at my side gleefully encouraged me with the words, “Touch her, touch her”. I still couldn’t…”
We have often heard the phrase “I will give you the moon”…..sometimes followed by “all you have to do is ask”. What is problematic about that phrase is you (or I) having to ask someone or depend on someone for that which we can get ourselves.
Within the above excerpt I have found beautiful and powerful gems. Have you? We all have the power to figuratively “call the moon to us”.
Notice that the moon wasn’t called down, the moon came across the sky; implying that the speaker was parallel to the moon.
Is FEAR preventing you from achieving your next level of greatness?
This applies wherever you are in life…whatever YOUR reality is. You could be employed and have desired a promotion and done the work necessary yet when the job becomes available you are afraid to apply for it. Or are you holding on to a job when you would love nothing more to be self employed? Have you desired and worked hard to create your own path and now that it is within reach you are afraid to take hold of it?
What’s holding you back? What are you afraid of?
Trust that you have within YOU all that is required to achieve YOUR definition of greatness.
Reach out and touch the moon. I DARE YOU 🙂
