the world has changed.
it is no longer the world i once knew.

as i sit looking back on my life
on the things i have accomplished, 
on the mistakes i have made
i realized more and more, i am no longer that person.

and as i looked at all the things i no longer am,
i am reminded of The Street Artist in my book The Mosaic
as he sits surrounded by broken pieces of ceramics and tiles
and listens to them talk of how magnificence they used to be
when they were whole
click here to buy The Mosaic.

and now as i discard my stories of who i used to be
and sit in the emptiness of not being that anymore,
i ask the emptiness to speak to me

and it does not speak immediately 
or perhaps it does, and i do not know how to listen to it
and so i sit more,
right in the pain and the loneliness of not knowing who i am 
and i do not run away, nor do i ask this feeling to leave,
but rather i listen to what it is trying to say to me
and become more quiet.

and then i hear it. i hear who i am today.
and because who i am is so beautiful to me, 
i want to share it with you what i heard and who i am.

i am an observer and a listener.
i watch you and listen to the voice inside you.
i am a questioner
and i simply ask you this one question.
what if what you believe is not true?
what if the stories you have created 
and the way you look at the world make it all seem true,
but what if it isn’t what you believe?
is there any possibility 
that things could be other than what you believe them to be?
what would that world look like to you?

and then i hold the space for that world to emerge in you
with you, for you?
and i listen to the voice of your soul, smile.

if any of this resonates with you, 
i so look forward to a conversation with you
about what working with you or your business looks like.
