What vision? What dream? In my last blog I talked about having great vision and the benefits it will bring you. Dreams are in the ballpark also. But if you will develop great vision, you must also have clear intention. Otherwise you merely meander about like a small stream. But unlike that stream you are being carried along without focus because life does not stop moving. The stream is water seeking its own level, the next lowest level. Do you know what you are seeking? Intention gives you direction, desire gives you motivation. There are some who say that divine intervention or predestination is running things. But if that’s so, where is your free choice?
I believe we draw to us everyone we encounter and we cause every event that we experience, whether good or bad. We cause this by what we do or do not do. Consider this little idea; look around you and observe and categorize how seldom people seem to know what they are doing. Or, to put it another way, how little they consider the consequences of their actions. Make it something simple like driving or even executing a very simple technique like throwing a kick or maybe a punch. You will see some who know what they are doing. You will see some who think that they know what they’re doing; some who know that they don’t know. And way down at the bottom are those who don’t know that they don’t know. The path out of this conundrum is through the act of intention. You test it. Then you do it again, and if it doesn’t work you seek instruction. If instruction is not available then trial and error is the only way out. But at least you are seeking. Or you’re working the practice and development of great vision and insight. If its consciously achievable. Why do I say that?
Because the body already knows how to move efficiently, thinking is not really necessary. Thinking of a movement actually slows it down because conscious thinking does not happen fast enough. Even though thought can be pretty quick. Get your conscious mind out of the way and give your sub-conscious mind and body free rein. What may happen is something like that meandering stream I mentioned earlier. Now I know this sounds like I am going around in circles, but isn’t that how the planets and galaxies operate, going around in circles. My answer is “as above, so below.” This is a Hermetic principle which describes something not normally seen or understand. In other words, substitute a parable for the lack of understanding.
Life is a paradox.
