I went up on my roof this past Sunday morning for some fresh air and a journaling session. I expected to brainstorm thoughts and designs for my business, but instead ended up with the below paragraphs.
I was happy to find that these words, which flowed pretty easily once they organized themselves, summed up a concept I've struggled to clarify for my own self these past months... which is to say, how does one bridge that gap between Visualizing The Future and Making Concrete Plans?
If you, like me, have ever struggled with simultaneously holding space for the Big Picture and the Little Details, then this blog is dedicated to you. xoxo
The mental current flows from What Could Be, or What Will Be, toward What Currently Is.
Because we perceive time as linear, we assume the mental current flows the other way, and we plan our actions accordingly.
Indeed, our physical actions do follow a forward-moving path, from What Is Now to What Will Be. For our physical selves must occupy this linear timeline.
Despite the now-to-then directions our actions must take, the intangible, non-physical energy of our life force's intention flows opposite, from then-to-now.
And so, when making decisions with the mind, which is intangible thought, we must begin in the future, then plan toward the present. Only then do we create a blueprint for our actions to follow, and gain traction therein.
