MY NEW SITE IS UP!
I've been working on it for awhile (and will continue to tweak a few things here and there), and she's finally ready for her close-up. So, without further ado, here's the official announcement:
Going forward, the info from "Nicole J. Butler: Living Truthfully" and my official website, "NicoleJButler.com" will be housed under one roof:
"The Live True Project"
This is the continuation of a journey that has been underway for some time. Now, more strongly than ever, I have come to believe that we realize our maximum potential when our work is a natural outgrowth of ourselves as individuals. I also believe that our gifts are primarily for the benefit of other people.
As I've come to this realization and taken a look around at my own life and the lives of others, I see lots of us holding on to habits, doctrine, and belief systems that do not serve us. I see that a lot of us that started have gotten stuck.
To quote Marianne Williamson: "Your playing small doesn't serve the world."
Not one of us was created to live a life of drudgery and suffering, playing out endless dramas, waking up to desperate lives that drain us, rushing off to jobs that we hate, staying in relationships that deplete us, raising children who are not prepared and not even aware that they are to be the future guardians of the light in the world. Then come home everyday, eat processed food, watch processed TV shows, and processed news, then go to bed and visit our greatness in dreams. Then do it all over again the next day. Yet, that's what we do. And we call it "normal everyday life." For such capable living beings with wiring so complex to be reduced to this is a criminal waste of precious resources.
Do I have the answers?
If I, or any other human on earth says that they have the answers to all of the world's problems, run as fast and as far as you can. Heck no, I don't have the answers. But I'm asking the questions as they arise within my purview. "The Live True Project" is about asking the questions, answering them as honestly as possible, and finding real-life humane solutions to moving us all forward, individually and collectively. I've laid my own learning experiences out for you for years now, and will continue to do so, but in addition to my personal life and acting career, I want to inspire YOU to live the life that YOU were created to live. Hopefully I can light your torch, and you'll be able to light the torch of someone else who needs it. In time (read: when I figure out how to do it), there will also be a "Giving Back" component, because philanthropy is so important in helping us to remember that we are all connected.
It's a tall order, and while I have some ideas, I really don't know where it's going (which is why it's a "Project"). In all honesty, I'm nervous about it, because I'd like to have more control, but I ain't no punk, so bring it on. The horse is galloping and I'm holding on for dear life. And if you ride with me, I'm confident that we'll all end up somewhere even more wonderful than where we started.
