FITFS Our Soul Dipper Amy

Amy Nora Doyle. is how she signed off her About page but we mostly just know her as Amy.

Soul Dipper and Spirit Builder by Design.  When I write these few words I feel the completeness of Amy and her world.  However for any of you who are not familiar with her, please allow me to lead you.

On January 9, 2010 Amy took to the written word and the last words of that post are:

Embrace your highest source of power and love.  Focus on it; carry it with all your being.  With that power, no matter what life puts in your path, there you will stand – strong in the face of adversity.  And that is called SOUL.

We fuss and worry and scoot along our lives regretting the past sometimes and fearing the future, when there is an opportunity to embrace our strength, our power, our love, that will allow us to weather what comes.

Understanding does not depend upon, nor does it denigrate any religion, or belief systems.  It is a message of love.

It matters not whether you choose to believe, visiting Soul Dipper is always a peaceful experience.

Amy lives in one of the most beautiful parts of Canada.  I spent some time there a few years ago…long before I found the Blogosphere and all my dear ones in it and the near by ocean and beautiful trees vie for beauty in the gentlest rains I have ever seen.

We give celebration to the important things in our lives, as you know, I do this each Friday by honoring my own list of heroes one at a time.  These are all people worthy of FITFS – Following in The FootSteps – for me and while I cannot ‘become’ I can try to emulate them in some way.

Soul Dipper is not at all ever serious or encumbered by weighty soul sucking problems, she is funny as in her post on The Secret to Why Men Don’t Ask for Directions  or it can be about  a fab dinner.  Well I could go on and on but that would be just replicating or trying to replicate the perfection of what is.

Please do stop by, say hi, and allow yourself a moment of peace.

 

Souldipper, Regina and No Fear

Amy at http://souldipper.wordpress.com/2012/03/28/occupy-blogosphere-thursday-march-29-2012/#comment-8507 has a brilliant post today including an amazing use of egg shells that I would never have thought of.

She also talked about Regina Dugan and her TED talk on:

“What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?”

asks Regina Dugan.

Amy of course had a brilliant answer as will most of you and it was not until I was completing my comment to her that I realized Regina’s question was for me, unsettling.  When I first saw the presentation my heart thrilled to the potential of it all and then the strangest feeling settled over me.

Yup.  That feeling was fear.  It scares me to think I could do something, achieve something, without fear.  Yes Regina, the very thought is freeing.  Or it should be.  If I let go of my fear?

I’m thinking that before I can leap to fearlessness I am going to require some guidance on getting there.  Does anyone else understand the fear of fearlessness or am I just not grasping the whole idea?  Am I afraid of being fearless?  The answer has to be ‘yes’.

Logically I understand that those who excel have set aside any fear preventing success. Would I like to overcome fear.  I sure would.  It just all seems a little too scary.

Any and all advice is sincerely welcome.  There must be a way around this road block.

I can see overcoming fear of some tangible thing or at least trying to overcome it but my fears in some things are actually a security.  Or perhaps an excuse.
