What withholds us to embrace life as a great adventure?

What withholds us to embrace life as a great adventure? Why do we hesitate to take risks?

Most often, it is the limiting structure of the mind which is the primal obstacle to adventure, risk, and growth. It is the rational voice that tells us safety is of paramount importance. The construction of the mind that prefers to have calculated answers, rather than to see what lies hidden in the unknown, but fertile, quantum field.

And still … I know that there is a deep longing in each of us to move beyond that fearful structure. To connect to a free being that uses the laws of the universe to tap into new potentials. An inherent human hunger to do immensely creative (and adventurous) things. It makes me thinks about one of my favorite quotes of the Tibetan monk Chögyam Trungpa:

“The bad news is you’re falling through the air, nothing to hang on to, no parachute. The good news is, there’s no ground.”

To the rational mind, this idea of free-falling seems an absurd utopia. It tells us that falling, or flying for that matter, is a dangerous business. Without a specific destination or goal (because where do we fall to?), absolutely useless and not worth the risk. And yet … nothing new is created without a little free-fall, experiment, and risk. Innovation is actually born in that field.

And so what if there are a few universal mechanisms that can assist us in taking that free-fall? Both in your personal life as well as in your work or business? What if there are a few life principles that make that journey more comfortable and safe? Principles that not function as safety nets, but more, as engines for flying. They are what I call the principles of trust. They have the power to bring us from fear to trust; from mind to wholeness; from the old into something totally new.
