I was a VC founder, investor, hustler, crypto renegade. I chased and chased until I couldn’t run anymore. What about now was so bad that I was trying to run so far away from it?
When I finally stopped running, I looked around and realized that there was only one thing I could do in this world. I could let go. I could let go into the knowledge that everything will be ok. I let go into the dream of who I am, of what I’m capable of. I let go of the struggle that makes life so difficult. What about life is so hard?
I decided to play a surrender experiment with life.
- I focus only on how I feel any take full responsibility for it. I choose unconditional happiness with no more excuses for why I’m choosing negativity.
- I trust that everything else will fall into place.
This blog came as a result of this experiment. I feel a need to share my understandings. I have a belief deep in me that perhaps this can help other seekers out there. The voice of doubt bites at my heels. It tries to stunt my fingers as they roll over this keyboard.
But I have to write. I have to share.
As Rabbi Kook wrote, “I don't speak because I have the power to speak; I speak because I don't have the power to remain silent.”
