The day I
finally admitted I could no longer stay in the
self-imposed box called health coach,
can read the story here,) I embraced uncertainty
and went about the business of starting
“Who do you think you are Ms. Cox,
get down off that stage,” Sister
Mary Angela shouted at my nine-year-old self,
imitating Paul McCartney, bangs in my eyes,
strumming my air guitar, “Listen,
ooh ah ooh, do you want to know a secret….”
Highs. Lows. Self-doubt. Naysayers full of
fear asked, “Aren’t you a bit
old to be starting over?” “Who do
you think you are?” reverberates
from the past.
I love the doubters, the box occupiers, because
I recognize them as evidence of my resistance.
Where there is resistance there is creation
I keep going.
Two years later, “Why did you wait
so long?” is the question that repeats
with every new client whose message I am honored
to write powerful words for.
And then this…
“What about your soul work, Greg?”
said the voice I doubted but could not silence.
My soul wanted out of the closet.
I wanted an escape route.
divine wild ride." You know.
I do. I know the wild. It’s me at the
core cloaked in normal, everyday, a not-quite-playing-by-
the-rules type, but no lock-ups or big regrets.
The divine adds a new layer of wild. Who am
I to lay claim to a divine self?
But I have — or rather, it laid claim
Who are we to say we are divine? What
does that mean?
What if others wondered the same?
Divine Wild Ride is a seedling
planted in the soil of a soul rich with curiosity
about what it means to be human and divine.
My curiosity doesn’t stop there, and
maybe yours is also casting about, wondering
where to put things like mystic experiences,
channeling, psychics, and shamans.
If so, this ancillary adventure to all things
words might be a place for you to explore.
In this moment I am that nine-year-old wondering
“who do I think I am?”
to take this on and ship it out, as Seth Godin
He also says, “No place to hide is
the only place to be.”
Naked I am, and ready to share a secret only
a few close friends know — I’m totally
into woo-woo, spiritual exploration,
mysticism and how quantum physics is mirroring
aspects of metaphysics, and it has
only just begun.
I invite you to take
a look at this nascent project, have a listen
to the podcast, and maybe sign up for a Daily
Dose of the Divine.
This is not instead of copywriting and marketing
coaching, it is an addition to the ways I see
myself serving the world and my own soul.
If it’s not for you that’s cool,
but if you are curious about what else you might
add to your life’s wild ride that the
naysayers just won’t understand, then
take a look — everyone is welcome.
