I am taking a tentative step out of the Ordinary World in response to the Call to Adventure. I am aware and it has become painful enoughâ€¦even to realise that itâ€™s going to be too painful to do anything.
Where the fuck is my Wise Mentor like they say there will be? No fairy-god-mother-look-alike, wand-waving, sagely hermit, Yoda-type humanoid in psychedelic colour (green is just too boring and reminds me of Kermit the Frog). Oh? Is it my fault that I donâ€™t read books? I buy them just to look good. I will no sooner fall asleep than to do anything about them. Awaken the Unlimited Power of 7 Habit of Moving Cheese in One Minute Soup for the Chicken Soul to Get Things Done Like Your Rich Dad and Poor Mine. Crap!! If so many are sold, there will be as many successful people!!
No one appeared to tell me what training workshop would totally prepare me for the journey that Iâ€™m taking. If only I can find one that screens movie and play songs that should inspire me!!
I might as well stay put and resign to my fate.
â€œWhat if you have a Wise Mentor NOW What will you do?â€
I wonâ€™t hem and hawâ€¦
â€œYou dodo bird! What WILL you do, not what you wonâ€™t!!â€
I will take it as a sign to move aheadâ€¦ darn it!! Isnâ€™t that a pattern of mine? I want it to be a perfect beginning, I want to be totally equipped right at the beginning. Yet, I ignore all the possible mentors out there. Oh my, this is the Real McCoyâ€¦the true blue bonafide Call to Adventure: I am procrastinating and itâ€™s costing me!!
â€œWell now that youâ€™ve gotten pass that, letâ€™s put things into perspectiveâ€¦â€
Whoaâ€¦hold the horses, who the hell are you?
â€œI am Me, together we are part of Myself.â€
Huh? I know I amâ€¦
â€œKnow Me is tooâ€¦letâ€™s get acquainted: Me is in the state of Flow, your alter ego. Characterised by relaxed concentration, enjoyment and trust.â€
Are you my Wise Mentor?
â€œWell, not in the form that you thought a Wise Mentor should be. I am not a book or song and only half the man. You only know Me as a voice inside your head. You only feel my presence when things seem to fall in place without any conscious deliberation on your part. Before you go labelling Me as your Unconscious Competence, just wanna clarify that UC is an agent and a friend of mind, mine too!!â€
So why arenâ€™t you here all the time?
â€œSighâ€¦you are asking too much from Me coz you fill your physical and mental space with too much junk leaving Me with no space. You can start by taking stock of all the petty annoyances, minor irritations and small flaws that you are putting up with and get rid of them.â€
Give Me spaceâ€¦and I can grow.
My Wise Mentor is Me, among others. I am aware.
