Intellect vs. Intuition

You cannot be anything you want to be!! WHAT? I was ready to pounce when I first read these words in Steven Pressfield's The War of Art.
But then he completed the sentence by saying you are supposed to be the person you came on earth to be. You are here to do a specific thing. If you are following, you can see that when people say you can be "anything" you want to be, the operative word is not "anything" but rather "that you want to be." In other words, anything that is in your heart is exactly what you should do or be.

Now, don't be discouraged by these words. Don't think, well I want to paint, what if that's not what I'm supposed to do?  Don't worry. The fact that this is what is in your heart to do means that this is the very thing you are supposed to do.

We are here to experience many different things and every time you do something--anything that feels right in your bones, then you know you are on the right track. Don't be afraid of trying things that appeal to you, if you want to paint, ski, write or go to medical school then you should.

You see, you're not going to have a desire to write if what you really are supposed to do with your life is be a brain surgeon. If what you want is to be a doctor and if you listen to your intuition, then you will be drawn to medical everything. You will be guided to the right schools, to articles, or even to television shows that have to do with medicine. And, if you don't let fear come between you and your intuition then a brain surgeon you shall be.

Remember you are who you are and you can fight it all you want, suppress it as much as you like, but deep inside you know the truth and until you set it free there will be aspects of your life that won't work, that won't line up.
Don't get trapped by the web of life, follow your heart and your world as a whole will be better. Your family life, your career and your finances will all blossom as a result of your courage.
Till Next Time!
