It’s much more for me –
I’m “thinking” off the grid which shifts perceptions and allows for heightened experiences, true creativity, a lot more freedom and the openness to be true to ourselves and express our purpose to the world.
Letting go of all of the external noise, letting go of “things” that no longer serve my life and are essentially just filling up space.
If things are not serving an immediate purpose and just taking up space in your life, in your home, in your thoughts and perceptions – letting go frees us to live authentically as our true selves.
It allows creativity to flow – peace and a stronger sense of self become more evident and ways open to accomplish dreams or even explore outside of our comfort zones.
Authenticity doesn’t involve adding to what already exists or being more successful; it means letting go, releasing.
When we live authentically, we find more room to be expressive and live as we were meant to.
It is a process.
Now, I live on a sailboat in Mexico half of the year, surfing, learning to sail, exploring and writing.
The other half of the year (summers), I work in tourism in Alaska.
This is a life I now love and have had the freedom to create over time.
My life is much more simple than it used to be and I prefer it this way. I realize not everyone will go this route; however, by thinking off the grid and removing all the excess static, there is more freedom to create the life and purpose that rings true to our heart and spirit.
Simplicity is basic to the heart. Letting go allows what is inside you to blossom.
It is a privledge to share my experiences and I think they fit into ZO’s different kind of universe. I look forward to sharing my journey as we all continue down this path of creativity and freedom “off the grid”
