No virtual-reality goggles or googling required. One blink away. Close your eyes, immediately be at your destination. Jet-lag-free, see the world as you ache for it. As quickly as you can close eyes ~ be on African safari, at foot of some left-coast mountain, atop some iconic building or inside ancient cliff-dwellings.
Just go anywhere, move things or people – but before moving anything physically, we need move them with our mind. Best quickest most economical travel method – no backpacks, passports, booking tickets or stocking up on foreign currency. Just go in your mind. Wherever. Whenever you want. Just go. No need to pack. Put yourself there. Now. Feels great doesn’t it?
Now, forget travel – use this technique – design your life; don’t chase goals, achieve them, don’t regret paths not taken, take all the paths you want. Just go in your mind, you’re half-way there, aren’t you?
Doesn’t ‘beginning with the end in mind’ make so much sense?
Don’t know where my journey will take me. I’m not afraid where it might go. I’ve been on the down-side of up so many times I feel like the buttered side of toast dropped on the floor, just dust and crumbs to brush aside.
Whatever destination/destiny we face is the one we create. If we don’ like it, we can change it. Hard work. Of course. Worth it.
Ten thousand years is only a moment in time, so our hundred years or so is tiny in the passage of life and times on this earth, so why should we waste any of it?
Really good musing this morning! You are so very good at asking questions that result in my immediate answer being "hmmmm haven't thought about that in a very long time, or ever". I know I don't like to be recognized with awards and spotlights, etc. It is because my motivation for stuff I do comes from within. When I get asked to show up to some event to receive public praise I always think "they don't understand me, I didn't do this (whatever it is at the time) because I cared what others think. Sure if I'm helping someone I am happy if they are grateful but Ii have no desire for people not directly involved to know anything about me. I use humor & tell others I don't want the award, because I am motivated only by cash. But I really just don't want the award, CM, Victoria, BC
Regardless of what subjects you talk about in my opinion they are all relevant. Whether its Religion, Politics, Medical/Health there will always be something in those messages for someone. We all walk different paths in life and just maybe something you write today might become the stepping stone for someone tomorrow. So don't stop writing about something because one person felt offended, MJ, Calgary, AB
