Have you ever looked at someone whose life so seemed so far removed from yours that you couldn’t imagine experiencing it.
No matter how great it looked ~ no matter that it might be something you wanted, no matter how much you focused on it, or how much attention you gave it, you couldn’t accept you would ever experience it because your reality was so far removed from theirs.
I’m putting John Burroughs, naturalist extraordinaire in charge of our bus…he seems to know where he’s going. Don’t know about you, but I’m always happy to have some great guidance.
Do not despise your own place and hour. Every place is under the stars, every place is the center of the world.
As my Mum always used to tell me, stop thinking of how you’re going to do it Elle. You don’t have to know how you’re going to get there, it’s enough that you know where you’re going!
Have faith and jump
Leap and the net will appear.
We’re not talking about a physical leap here.
We are not our bodies, we are really spirit, and imagination and it’s through our imagination that we’ll be taking our leap. So that’s a little less scary, isn’t it?
But if we were making a physical leap, would our attention be on the middle of the jump? Methinks not. We’d be focused on our two feet being planted firmly on the green, green grass of home. Well I know I would…having my feet dangling over a void..not really my idea of a big thrill.
In other words, we’d be focused on our very, very happy outcome. What we’re inwardly saying and doing is so much more important than any action we’re taking.
The creative act
The creative act is not thinking of something, or why we can’t have it, or be it or do it. The creative act, the quantum leap from one state of mind to another is seeing our feet planted firmly in the new place we’ve chosen for ourselves.
You can get discouraged many times, but you are not a failure until you begin to blame somebody else and stop trying.
Every time we look outside of ourselves for the reason why something went wrong, why it didn’t work out, we move further away from the fulfillment of our desire. Someone didn’t do what they promised, or they let us down, or they behaved badly and now it just won’t work. It’s their fault. They did it to us. Err, I don’t think so.
Get a new mind set
The lesson which life repeats and constantly enforces is ‘look under foot.’ You are always nearer the divine and the true sources of your power than you think.
Every time we look outside ourselves for answers or turn to another as the reason for why we haven’t yet accomplished something, we are moving away from the source of our power and giving it away. Not helpful.
It’s time to stop letting the outer world control our reactions. Accepting that we, our consciousness, is the creator of all we survey, liberates us from the tyranny of outside causes. It’s us, it’s always been us…it’ll always be us we are the common denominator. Somehow, I find that comforting. Let’s jump…ready?
If you’ve done any quantum jumping lately and are willing to share, we’d love to hear from you.
Encourage one another.
