Lashed into your position, pulling hard with other members of the team, going where your owner/driver/controller/pilot wants to steer you, running hard/your best, or keeping pace with the slowest member of the team?
Are you harnessed, bridled at least, being led where someone else wants you to go – allowed to feast at the trough, drink from the tank – when they say you are done?
Or are you in the saddle – guiding the dreams you are riding to race, leap and fly … ?
If we harness the power of our own mind can we expect to reign it in? Or should we just strap into a saddle and hang on for an unimaginable ride?
Actually, it isn’t unimaginable, is it?
Because our mind – conscious perhaps, but more likely our non-conscious marvelous tool working 24/7, conspiring to achieve a better result, set better goals, live more purposefully. So powerful is this tool, we should just stimulate it and just let it go – increased productivity through more sleep.
The more sleep, the more and better it can work for us.
Working for us while we are sawing logs … you just gotta love it.
How complex is barometric pressure - I live with trigeminal neuralgia and can predict changes in weather before it happens. But it doesn't stop me from jumping in the shallow end - I don't swim... Best thing to do is to ride the storm or tub-soak with a glass of wine listening to Leonard Cohen. Mark, we need to be reminded sometimes and that's what you do well!, FL, Embrun, ON
