“The shortest route between you and all you desire involves asking yourself daily or moment-to-moment, ‘Who do I need to be to bring what I’m committed to into reality?'”
From the book Thriving Work: 90 days of daily practice for transforming you and your coaching, consulting or healing business
By Ann Strong
When I wrote this 7 years ago, I wasn’t consciously aware that my deepest desire had only one answer.
Who do I need to be to bring all that I desire into reality?
Love Embodied / In Union with God / Christ Incarnate.
I don’t need to be smarter, faster or jump higher. I do need to be in this world, but not of it. I do need to express the Divinity of me, rather than allowing my humanness (read:ego) to run the show.
Ah, to be so effortlessly fully myself as these guys…
When I wrote Thriving Work in 2011, I felt happy to experience moments of my Divinity and didn’t expect more. Today, I’m committed to more.
I’ve been reading, re-reading and studying with three friends the book, The Way of Mastery – Part One: The Way of the Heart for almost a year now.
To come to know ourselves as Love Embodied, it gives us four keys to the Kingdom: desire, intention, allowance and surrender.
To be all that God created me to be.
To focus on that desire daily.
To see everything as an opportunity to heal whatever stands in the way of me being – consistently – the Presence of Love.
To live “Thy Will, not my will.”
“Commitment is nothing more than a deliberate decision that something will be so.”

And so it is! I’m committed to living Love Embodied and continuing to work through whatever trips me up between where I am in a moment and living Love Embodied.
I’d love to hear from you. What would you love to bring into reality? Who do you need to be to bring that into reality?

Ken, I totally get your distinction about being deeply committed to being Love and “wanting” a newer car, a raft, owning a home and learning to fly. I wonder if all those desires will naturally come from the commitment to being Love…
Thank you again for recommending The Way of Mastery over a year ago! It is rockin’ my boat, I am loving being more loving!
There are lots of things I “want,” a newer car, own my home, a raft, learn to fly…but the only thing I am deeply committed to right now is being Love.
Again, thank you. Deeply!
