The Most Incredible Moment



There was this incredible moment last night as I walked behind the set on Dancing With The Stars premier and I want to tell you about it. This moment could not have been more special.

For the longest time I have had this image in my mind that has festered within. A trifecta – a complete unison between the mind, the body, and the soul. It is this grouping of 3 that I see the greatest amount of light, passion, and fire within my heart. I’ll come back to this in a second.

As I was walking behind my friends last night behind the stage, I had this moment where everything got very very quite. Eerily quiet. It’s strange because as I was walking in I knew there was loud music and people clapping on the dance floor excited for what was to come. But it wall went silent. I had this moment of clarity and knew this was a moment that I was going to relive soon in the future. I guess you could call it a moment of foreshadowing for deja vu. In that moment I knew I was meant to do this again, but instead of walking behind this stage to dance, I would walk behind this stage and enter in front of thousands of people to speak.

The heavens turned the noise back on and I found myself clapping with a little hop in my step – all being completely offbeat. The excitement of this moment had delivered me to some time in the future and I had arrived with full intention of accomplishing what needed to be done in that moment. I lived forward for a few seconds. I felt what was to come, and that feeling has remained in my stomach even until this afternoon.

As I sat in my chair watching my roommate take the stage and dance beautifully, I had this feeling of warmth. Those hands that were washed away off my shoulders in the shower yesterday were placed warmly across my back. I knew this was a special moment.

My dreams scare the shit out of me. But that’s how I know they are proper in size. They have scared me so many times that I have put them aside for more time living an old life. That moment last night however brought something to my attention that I feel like I had been “searching” for. I had been looking for the greatest amount of time but never found what I needed. Thing is, maybe that pain is what I needed. The insecurity, the doubt, the anguish I had to go through during a time when things seemed so opaque. Maybe that is exactly what I needed to understand what clarity really does look like. When I think back to it now, I am almost positive.

There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.

– Kenneth Blanchard

It took me a long long time to get to that moment – the moment when all doubt was removed from my mind about what I was supposed to do. I have had bits and pieces delivered to me throughout time, but this took everything away – all doubt, anxiety, worry.

I believe in what I am doing. But something rooted inside of me last night. Something told me that there is now a bit more than just belief. The vision has become razor-sharp with a commitment that has been lit aflame.

Mind. Body. Soul. Lets see what happens when you connect all 3.

    The power of a dream. The one that wakes you from a sleep so abruptly that every detail is set and your memory cannot let it go. You revisit it, you think about it, you analyze it, you may even try to remove it. But it is somehow connected. It drives your inner workings of the mind and when followed can deliver what one never expected.

    Thanks for the post.
