Thou Shall Not Dither

So I've been working on my memoir.  Section by section I'm answering questions posed in a great interface at Memoir Workbook.  As I feel the urge, I answer a few more questions.  In the last several days, I've been answering questions in the Religion section, and it is revealing something that has been poking out of my subconscious for awhile.

I'm going to start my own religion.

As Perfect Timing would have it, (Perfect Timing will likely be a tenet in my new religion) a quote came across on one of my feeds today from Findhorn pioneer Eileen Caddy:

You must learn to see things clearly, know exactly where you are going and what you are doing and go right ahead and do it without any hesitation.  Never be indecisive and stand out on the brink and dither.  Plunge right in when you have sought and found the answer and do what you know has to be done.


I"m plunging into Dancing Rabbit because I sought and found the answer, and I'm doing what has to be done.  It is clear to me.  That's where I'm going.  I wonder how much of the depression over the years was caused by dithering in particular situations or beliefs.  

If you are reading this in Perfect Timing, I simply urge you to stop dithering.

Stop dithering.

Make the change today.  Even making the first step of a larger change provides the relief and energy to confirm the rightness of it.  I didn't move to Dancing Rabbit the day after it became clear that's what I was to do.  What I did do the first day was read all about it on the website and planned to attend a Visitor's Session.  I filled out the application the first weekend after I had the idea so as not to suffer with Dithering Depression (perhaps another tenet of my new religion).

By the way, I also signed up for Singing Rabbit over Labor Day Weekend which is my official move-in date to DR.  It kept coming up as something I wanted to do.  But what about the money?  I can't really sing?  What if not many people do it?  Dither, dither, dither - Do IT!

I signed up.  I get a discount as a Rabbit.  Someone recently told me I can sing.  I will enjoy it.  It is a great way to kick off my residency, and just exactly the right people will be there.

I would love to hear about any actions you take!  I'll keep you posted on how the religion thing is going.

  1. I like that. I quit dithering and bought a ticket to Australia for my niece's wedding! But I dithered about it for a while. Now I am forced to quit dithering and get my passport and visa, which I have dithered about for years!
