The Party

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 6:31 am

The Grasshopper showed up between the raindrops yesterday and had this to say: “The party never ends because the party never began.”

It sounded like a riddle within a conundrum, so I just let it sit.

What is “The Party”? My sense is it has different meanings depending on the angle from which it’s viewed.

One definition is that “The Party” is a lifestyle; another is that it is life itself.

The never ending crowd is the lifestyle wing of the party; life itself is a party of one.

To continually seek the party means you have never discovered how to celebrate yourself.

You bring the party with you wherever you go when you celebrate your own party of one.

If you’re looking for it everywhere you go, you’ll spend a lifetime attempting to begin. You can’t start from there; you have to begin from here.

“Here” is an appreciation of your connection to creativity. You find that you are a conduit from which the party flows; therefore it goes wherever you go.

Party seekers feel as though they are never enough. They feel incomplete. This causes them to endlessly seek out “The Party.”

They haven’t begun to search right where they are because they are too busy looking for the party out there somewhere.

For the party to begin for a party seeker, they have to stop their outward search long enough to find their inner party.

The self image of a party seeker sits on the lowest rung of the ladder because they’re afraid of new heights. Climbing up that ladder would shatter their image of not being enough – a position they’ve grown accustomed to.

Climbing that ladder takes some risks. You have to risk losing who you think you are to stop losing. When you discover that you’re more than the sum total of your thoughts, you discover “The Party.”

The endless seeking has to end in order for the party to begin.

If you feel as though you’re not enough, I encourage you to stop seeking long enough to find that you’re deserving of an engraved invitation to “The Party.”

 

All the best,

John
