“In the resurrection we are assured that there are no doors that are eternally closed. Every time we close a door or one is closed on us, God opens another for us. The resurrection assures us that God never gives up on us, even if we give up on ourselves.”
~ Sister Jean Hinderer

The Fourth Principle:
Don’t die with your music still in you
“Be enthusiastic about all that you do . . .
enthusiasm literally means
‘the God (enthos) within (iasm).’“
Find your passion and follow it even if it means marching to your own drumbeat when it’s different from what everyone else or society says you should be doing.
Your left brain calculates, figures things out, analyzes, and comes up with the most logical choices for you. It thinks, thinks, thinks . . . Your right brain represents your intuitive side. This is the part of you that goes beyond reason and analysis. It’s the part of you that feels things, that’s sensitive to love, that’s emotional about what’s important to you . . . Your left brain can analyze it, while your right brain lets you feel it . . . there are times when what you feel will supersede what you know.
Your right brain will always lead you passionately to your purpose . . . Your intuitive inner voice keeps urging you to play the music that you hear so that you won’t die with it inside you . . . Listen to your music, and do what you know you have to do to feel whole, to feel complete,and to feel as if you’re fulfilling your destiny. You’ll never be at peace if you don’t get that music out and let it play. Let the world know why you’re here, and do it with passion.
The Wayne Dyer videos that I had put into this and the other posts from this series were removed from YouTube – I am doing my best to replace them when I find suitable substitutes.
The passion that you feel is God inside of you beckoning you to take the risk and be your own person . . . Rudyard Kipling declares, ‘If you can meet triumph and disaster and treat those two impostors just the same . . . yours is the earth and everything that’s in it.’
Being Passionate Means Taking Risks
You’ll find your passion in what inspires you the most . . . When you’re inspired, you never have to ask about your purpose . . . What is your passion? What stirs your soul and makes you feel like you’re totally in harmony with why you showed up here in the first place?
Know this for certain: Whatever it may be, you can make a living doing it and simultaneously provide a service for others . . . the only thing that will keep you from playing the music you hear and marching to the unique drumbeat you experience within, is fear.
The Myth of Failure
Failure is an illusion. No one ever completely fails. Everything you do produces a result .. . Failure is a judgment. It’s just an opinion. It comes from your fears, which can be eliminated by love. Love for yourself. Love for what you do. Love for others. Love for your planet.
When you have love within you, fear cannot survive . . . ‘Fear knocked at the door. Love answered and no one was there.’
How it came to be:

It can be a very scary step — starting to listen to those whispering voices about being more of who we really are. But doing so isn’t half as scary as getting to face our end with the question what if my whole life has been wrong. These were the the dying words of Leo Tolstoy’s character Ivan Illyich in The Death of Ivan Illyich. Wayne Dyer speaks about how this story inspired him to write himself a note, ‘Don’t die with your music still inside you.’
