Day 62: Empty Hands
A little background: I am a member of the Million $ Book Club Community, created by William Whitecloud author of The Magician’s Way and The Last Shaman, intuitive master, shamanic teacher. This club is not so much about money but about engaging the true gold of your creative genius to write books that ‘electrify your audience and position you as a master in your field or genre’. I attended William’s inaugural course in Los Angeles in February and met twenty other warrior souls. We learnt through the weekend how true vulnerability is the key to writing that transforms and touches hearts, we also learnt how our smaller self, our ego, is dedicated to sabotage and how our individual sabotage patterns play out. Fortunately it didn’t end there and we learnt about will and the keys to staying on course to our end goal. We left with girded loins and continue to support and inspire each other to keep going in this unknown territory.
The reason why I tell this story is because awhile back, Fred, one of my hero partners on this writing journey, posted this link to Nimesh ‘Nimo’ Patel’s free Empty Hands album in our writer’s group. I don’t think I would have checked the link if it wasn’t in our writing group but I just knew that Fred would only share something of value. I downloaded the album not expecting much. I mean it is free after all and ostensibly a rap album not my favourite genre of music. I played it in the background while I pottered on with my writing. Within minutes I was stopped in my tracks; yes this was rap but the heart, the passion, the love, the truth just oozes out of the songs. I had to check out who this Nimo guy was. He tells his story so much better than I can but sufficient to say he has taken the road less travelled; from great achievement, Wall Street and music success to the Gandhi ashram in India. He let everything go, stepped into the unknown, pouring love into the small things. And then four years on this music just started coming through and now I am telling you about it. Nimo’s story is not about worldwide recognition rather it is about all of us; about you – the spark you have inside you, the love you have to give and your unique genius that is waiting to be awakened.
Thank you to Nimesh ‘Nimo’ Patel for following his heart for Fred Pockrass of Transcendentist in Berkley, California for spreading the word and for everyone out there who is brave enough to step out on the soul journey.
I would love to support Nimo to play his music around the world, if you are interested in offering support in UK or Ireland in November 2014 please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org
100 Days of Awe is a playful project I set up to bring my attention to awe in my daily life. I see awe as wonder, a mixture of amazement and respect. I expect the experience of awe to be about perception shifting awareness and that demands a reframing of some sort. I am excited to see what will awe me on this journey.
