    Love is Radical

    Warrior Wisdom

    is crazy's older brother or sister. They kind of go hand in hand.
    Unfortunately, the word radical has been hijacked and is now almost exclusively related to something evil. What about radical love or dangerous for good? Where has that gone?

    Here's an observation. The more you submit to radical love the bigger you will go in every aspect of your life. 

    Radical love is not easy in the world that we live in. We drive to the office and perform our duties as laid out in our job description, and then drive home into our garage, close the door and don't reemerge until the next morning...  And repeat.
    For radical love to work, we need to be willing to be interrupted.

    We have to be focused on relationships.

    Obviously love is relational to it's very core. It is our deepest desire to experience radical love, to give it and to receive it. Sharing love outside of our home and family is where love really gets radical.
    Sharing love and following God's lead in the marketplace is unexpected.

    All the buzz in the business community is about having a big WHY. What WHY is bigger than sharing some love?  

    How do we do that? How do we balance between being scheduled out and having everything nice and neat in our WarriorWay90Day, and making time for others and allowing God to interrupt our day?

    Here is a suggestion. STOP what you are doing right now and fling open the curtains on the world.  Commit to letting God interrupt your plans whenever He feels like it.
    Embrace the fact that this could be the most exciting adventurous day of your life!

    There is only now. Yesterday is done, tomorrow is not guaranteed, so why not follow God's lead?

    Why not ask the question or make a suggestion or give someone a hug?

    Most of the time the only thing that is stopping you from radical love is worrying about how it will be received. What will people think?

    Do you want to spend the rest of your days in the prison of other people's opinions of you?  Or do you want to be free to radically share God's love and explode your life? 
    (Probably shouldn't put radical and explode in the same sentence as homeland security will be checking out my blogs. Hugs are better than hand grenades.)

    It's up to you.

    There are times when I feel like hugging a patient, when they share good news or tell me how awesome they are doing since starting care, but often I hold back because I think they will think I am weird or crazy. And I am pushing myself hard to approach strangers I see that are suffering, to tell them who I am and share my message of hope and healing. But WOW does fear grip me briefly as I walk towards them "Are you crazy Erin?! They are going to think you are nuts. They will ignore you or say no thanks"...but you said to us all in Lake Placid that the people who are the "craziest" have the biggest practices. Bring on the crazy! Thanks for this wisdom, Coach.

    Amen to that message Yurij. Finding that line between loving and relationships and sticking to the plan of warrior way is an intereating journey. Being open to god's plan is the best!

    This made me think of a metaphor in All In. The author equated life to golf. The tighter the grip.... the less control we really have. Loosen up the grip, let go of the control and let God do his thing! Amen Yurij.. love it!!!

    Awesome post. Easy to get caught up in the busy-ness of life and forget why we're doing what we're doing - the people.
