    Sword of Self Meets The Icarus Deception

           A rare Saturday post, but this book I'm reading, The Icarus Deception, inspired me to get this out sooner rather than later.
           I wrote a poem this week, before I started reading the book. After I started reading, I realized that my poem was speaking to the same dynamic that the book was, but coming at it through a different wormhole, and on a deeper, more intrapersonal level. Pre-emptive synergistic harmony of ideas.
           The video is amazing, and, I firmly believe, the new paradigm for our economy moving forward.


    Sword Of Self

    Be bold and strike forth
    Your sword of self cutting through the fog
    Risk showing who you are
    Risk being who you are
    And do battle with hiding

    You will not find yourself unless you seek
    That precious being underneath all the armor
    For the world does not need another armed soldier
    But will always yearn for a naked warrior

    so of course I love your poem, no surprise there, you and I have been having this conversation about showing up 'naked' in life for almost 20 years...and I have been a big Seth Godin fan for a very long time.

    Mira! So wonderful for you to share your comment. Thank you. And yes, this "naked conversation" between you and I has been a long, fruitful, and beautiful one. My relationship with you and Richard has enriched my life beyond measure, and that continues. Please keep reading and commenting.
