where ideas go to die

This post isn’t nearly as negative as its title implies. In fact, it has a positive message. But the title fits. You’ll see why…

While in a meditative state, I stood with my Higher Self on a wooden platform at the edge of a swamp. An old man with sparkling eyes stood near us. My Self and I each held a tiny memory chip in our hand. One chip was “the idea that being constantly busy proves your worth.” The other: “the idea that worrying about someone proves you love them.”

The old man told us to toss both “idea chips” into the swampy water. So we did.

They hit the water and broke up into bubbles, each bubble bursting with a tiny spark of light.

I asked the old man where we were. He said, “This is where ideas go to die. It’s not as dramatic as it sounds. It’s where we release them when they’ve outlived their usefulness.”

I invite you to take a moment to examine your ideas, your beliefs. Are there any you feel you’ve outgrown? Are you ready to release them?
