Bloom or Be Pruned!

Derek Rydall

Derek RydallThere is a principle in the universe, Grow or Die.

In your garden, it looks like pruning the branches that aren't producing flowers or fruits. In the Bible, it was Jesus cursing the fig tree that didn't produce figs.

And this principle applies to YOU.

Bottom line: If you don't give of the fruit you were created for, the Tree of Life will begin to prune you from Its branches.

I know this sounds harsh, but I'm not here to merely comfort the afflicted, I am here to afflict the comfortable!

Still with me?

You did not come to earth to work most your life so you could make enough money to attract a good mate, get a nice house, and retire to finally enjoy it all before dying a few years later!

You didn't come here to get a great sale at Macy's, get a lot of 'likes' on Facebook, or even become popular or successful in the eyes of others.

You came here to have an experience that would awaken you to who and what you really are and give your unique gifts -- so that others could do the same.

When a group of people come together and give of their unique gifts, it creates an ecosystem where everyone can thrive at a whole new level.

When a group of people come together and don't give of their fruit, the system breaks down, stagnates, and begins to die!

But Life will not Life makes sure that doesn't happen.

It prunes away the people, places, and things that don't produce what they're here for.

Likewise, it rushes to those who say YES to this emerging impulse, because in them it has found a willing instrument for Its fulfillment.

This Urgency of Emergence is getting stronger than ever. And if you don't respond to it, you will experience an emergency!

As the Gospel of Thomas says, "If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."

The time for excuses is over.

The time for telling yourself -- or anyone -- that you can't go for your dream and do whatever it takes to succeed because you don't have enough money, support, energy, space, whatever IS OVER.

Tomorrow is promised to nobody. Next year even less. The environment is in crisis. The political system even more. People are homeless, sick, starving, scared, and beyond…

We need you to be who you were born to be, and do what you were designed to do...and we need you to show up NOW.

And guess what, YOU need you to show up too.

Most of your problems are symptoms of a lack of connection to, and expression of, your true purpose and potential -- the unique gifts you're here to give.

If you want to heal your life and make the impact (and income) you deserve, there is nothing more important than committing to this.

Will you? Will you do whatever it takes to give forth your unique fruits or will you let your life be pruned away, little by little, day by day?

This is your time. This is your year. Let's take it to the next level together.

To Your Emergence!

P.S. -- If you're ready to stop getting ready and start making the IMPACT you were born for, CHECK THIS OUT.
