Inspiration is profoundly more powerful than motivation. Ego provides motivation. Spirit provides inspiration.
People don’t do anything without a motivation. I sure don’t. I don’t walk to the kitchen for a cup of tea without motivation. I don’t get out of bed without motivation. I’ve used the motivation of avoiding failure to keep me from being self-destructive.
Inspiration is of Spirit. In-Spirit. I’ve been inspired to follow through on the things that will improve my life. For some people, living the life of their dreams, is really a matter of motivation to avoid something rather than a call to fulfill a Divine impetus.
What I’ve discovered and practiced for myself is that motivation is of my head. Inspiration is of the heart. That Holy inspiration is the juice that manifests my Divine Destiny – to deny it is so deeply painful.
There’s nothing more painful than praying for guidance and help every day, and then consciously choosing to ignore it. That practice creates such a deep distress and despair. It creates depression in the mind and suffering in the body.
Pain is a teacher and motivator. Many of us must learn about this suffering one way or another, one lifetime or another. And still – we don’t have to live in pain and make our home there. We can choose, at any time, to transcend it. Our little willingness is all that’s required.
There’s never been more Divine support for us to live our very best life. There’s never been more of an impetus to make the world a better place through living our life in the best way possible. The world is calling out for us to renew our minds and live in alignment with the deep desires of our heart. You can answer that call!
Let’s do it together! Let’s begin today. Ask yourself, if you knew it would be fully funded and supported by the Infinite, what is the Spiritual quality that you’d most like to represent in the world? Love? Compassion? Abundance? Wholeness? Harmony? Creativity? Freedom? Wisdom? Constancy? Joy?
Instead of trying to figure out how, simply decide to BE it. Cultivate the willingness in the small moments and invoke the Divine to show you HOW – that’s inspiration and it’s so much more powerful than the motivation to avoid pain. You WILL be shown. How cool is that?
