Remez Sasson says,
By thinking in a positive manner on your goal, and not letting any doubts enter your mind, your intuition starts working, you see opportunities, and you have energy at your disposal to follow your goals and dreams.
Dreams and goals . . . hmm.
Friday night I went to a screening of the movie May I be Frank. This documentary was nothing short of amazing.
It’s the compelling story of Frank Ferrante, a 54 year-old man living in San Francisco, who struggles with addiction and rage. He is depressed, overweight, and desperately seeking a way to change his life. His desperation leads him to wander into the very raw, vegan, organic Cafe Gratitude restaurant in San Francisco, where 3 of the staff decide they want to give him a life-makeover. In a leap of faith, Frank agrees to their plan, and what starts as a healthy living quest soon becomes a life-changing adventure.
I rather enjoyed the way Frank was not aware of his dream coming true. He just knew he desperately needed a change. The young men who coached him through this journey were definite products of the new parenting paradigm.
My daughter often tells me that “the rubber band of consciousness” is stretched to the max.
That it is going to zing back quickly, and the quality of a connected lifestyle will be a great reward for humanity. Those kind of statements lead me to believe that my kids wont have such a hard time defining and then living their dreams.
What did you learn as a child about making your dreams come true?
My Dad used to call me knot-head. I’d just follow him around blabbing about the raft I was going to build and the cool horses and dogs I was going to have. How big my barn was going to be etc . . . All of a sudden he’d rail out at me, something like
Gaaaaawd dammit, don’t be a knot-head.
I figured out later, he was trying to keep me from failing at things, getting hurt, taking risks, you know, all the things you must do to succeed. So I did my parents plan for me. Forget about my dreams, do what everyone else does. School, marriage, babies.
So I got married . . . over and over again. I swear, I had a f-ing wash and wear wedding dress.
What I’m getting at is it’s never too late. Look at Frank, really, go to a screening of this movie and watch Frank achieve a dream he had no idea was in his life plan. He went from a smack- shooting, boozing, womanizer to a man with an amazing transformational story.
And now he is traveling with his story, inspiring others to rise up and live their best lives.
So about that quote I started this post with, here’s the part to contemplate –
Positive thinking about your dream leads to tapping into your intuition. Ah Ha, intuition is the key. I’m sure Frank had no idea that his raw food eating, colonic getting, yoga doing, emotional roller coaster riding journey would ever, ever lead to his life purpose. Never the less, he intuitively new he had to surrender to this path. Wild stuff!
Here’s your rap mantra for the week –
I can do it, I can do it
I can do it, nothin’ to it
I can grow it
I can mow it
I can reap it if I sow it
I know what’s right intuitively
So I’m gonna be the real me.
