Is it weird for me to be just as excited for Plan B as Plan A?
I have been practising following my inner guidance for quite some time now. The answer is always: My job is to sprinkle sound frequencies around the Earth. My secondary job is as a creative, making art and words, and weaving it all together. This is my Plan A. It’s kind of do or die.
One of my mentors, Katrina Ruth, says you should never have a Plan B. Having a Plan B is planning to fail. But you know what? I’ve been thinking about my Plan B, and I am really excited for it if it does eventuate.
While I expect a lot from my music, my art, my books etc, I also let go of expectations. Part of me is absolutely not attached to the outcome. At all. Because I know that everything always works out for me, and if it doesn’t work out as planned, something better happens. So no point being attached to something when something better might be just around the corner, right?
But I was chatting with someone recently and I said even if everything goes to shit, if I lose my house, my car – everything – I’d be cool. I’d just hitch hike up north, find some locals to teach me how to live off the land, and I’d go completely off the grid. It would be cool. Maybe I’d still have a computer and internet connection, and I’d be able to create music and continue to sprinkle those sound frequencies on a global scale. If not, I’d just do it for myself, for the Earth. Maybe I could fashion a recorder out of wood. I could learn how from a didgeridoo maker. Imagine the music that could be created from both a didgeridoo and a wooden recorder! It would be pretty magical. I thought about how my son would still learn to read and do maths, and he wouldn’t be in any formal sports – just the sport of life – and he wouldn’t have formal music lessons – just the music of the land – and it would be an amazing journey of living wild and free. I get as excited about Plan B as much as Plan A.
And the thing is, I know that one or the other will happen. Or rather, something better will happen – maybe both? 😀
