Love Wins and Patience Pays: What L.A. taught me about Music, Business, and Life
by Sean Waters
Alongside my more material goals, I’ve been working on self-trust… and in trusting the process of my life.
So I set my standard resolutions, to cultivate the presence of mind through daily morning pages, exercise and music, and art to keep it going and make it easy.
But with these resolutions to make more art, there’s a deeper resolution to actualize my full potential as a human being.
In Buddhist terms, enlightenment, awakening to the nature of reality.
In Christian terms, salvation, a self-emptying life lived in the spirit of unconditional love and service.
The way towards both… towards enlightenment and unconditional love … is something like gardening delicate flowers that need tending every day.
So, in 2020, I hereby resolve to cultivate the factors of awakening, and abandon the hindrances to ultimate success. Starting with a review of what those factors actually are :)
Which takes me back to my beginning, of the importance of self-trust… trust in
And more storytelling.
Bonus quotes from Star Wars, the Force Awakens:
“the belonging you seek is not behind you, but is ahead”
“the force moves through and surrounds every living thing. Close your eyes, feel it, the light. It has always been there, it will guide you.”
