What Makes You Feel Passionately Alive?
Spiritual teacher Jeff Foster asks: “What will you do with this one precious, fleeting gift of life?” The answer, he says, is simple, because life is short. Do whatever makes you feel passionately alive. Find a way—however much you have to struggle at first—of doing what moves you and connects you to the deepest truth of yourself.
Today we’re sharing an excerpt from Jeff Foster’s audiobook, Falling in Love with Where You Are: A Year of Prose and Poetry on Radically Opening Up to the Pain and Joy of Life. You’ll find yourself able to accept your life joyfully, no matter what you’re going through. You’ll see crisis as an opportunity to heal, pain as an intelligent messenger, and your imperfections as perfectly placed. Jeff will guide, provoke, encourage, and inspire you on your lonely, joyful, and sometimes exhausting pathless journey to the home you never, ever left: the present moment.
What’s in this episode?
In this episode, Jeff Foster will inspire you to honor your unique talents and abilities, and to what moves you and connects you to the deepest truth of yourself. To trust prosperity and passion over profit, comfort and the approval of others. Breaking out of the known can be terrifying. You’ll be swimming in the unknown, but you will feel passionately alive. You are not nearly as limited as you may have been led to believe by those who have not yet come alive!
Friend, if you are experiencing stress, sorrow, physical or emotional pain in your life right now, it doesn’t mean that your life is going wrong or that you have failed. You may just be healing in your own original and unexpected way.
Falling In Love With Where You Are offers a simple but radical invitation: Stop waiting for the world to make you happy. Stop making your inner joy dependent on external things that are out of your control. Discover the natural happiness that you are and have always been, that doesn’t depend on life’s ever-changing ‘content.’Jeff Foster
