Excerpted from a Jenny Wade interview with Rich Murray. His words resound:
“If you are reading this, in this very moment success is certain. Success is easy. It’s going to be fun. It’s going to be given to you. It’s all around you. Everything you do that’s fun, that you really feel like doing, especially if it’s new, if it puts you in contact with people that feels precious and exciting and playful joyful and there’s a lot of uniqueness and there’s not a lot of rules and there’s a lot of things to choose from and your field of choice is expanding, then you’re being liberated from what you’re used to, you’re being freed from what you’re used to — go for it.
Go for it. You deserve it. You absolutely deserve it. You deserve to have it fast and easy, and you in turn will make it faster and easier for me and the others. No sooner than you learn something, you are teaching it the next minute. It’s fast. It’s chain-reacting, and it saves the entire world dream. Everything that is a mistake and is painful is innocent confusion. There’s no evil. You are not evil. You are not bad. And any time you become aware of your limits, that means you are already leaving them behind. Everything that you don’t like about yourself and other people is already being outgrown, whether you’re aware of it in yourself or in another, the ostensible problem is already the doorway into a rapid avenue of progress. It’s a revolving door and you spin through it effortlessly into the next stage beyond it. The body level, emotion level, mind level, spiritual level, technology level all become fluid, interactive, equivalent, merged in brand new ways. Laughter is the way. Wrong way is way. Failure and mistakes are the way for sure. And even ordinary success can be left behind, no matter how sophisticated and busy it may be. Just because you’ve always been such and such and done such and such and are really good at such and such doesn’t mean that you can’t grow within it and beyond it both in most amazing ways. And every mistake is discovered to be a source of tremendous wisdom and inspiration.
Death is not a serious problem, and it is never punishment. It’s just another opportunity, just like everything else, like every morning when you wake up. I am Richard Murray. Hear me. And hear yourself. Speak with joy, exuberance, authority, speaking freshly, making it up as you go on. Be certain of things and be uncertain about what you’re certain about.”
