For those who know me personally, it will come as no surprise to hear me say – I’m not a big fan of rain. That said, after spending months studying Eckart Tolle’s work I know better than to resist the present moment and instead accept it for what it is, as that will allow it to pass through. So, instead I got to thinking what will make me feel great during these rainy days? What I came up with was that it is a great time for me to do some imagining…
I’m very much a busy body, frequently on the run and sometimes don’t take enough time to sit and ponder my life: Where I’ve been, where I wish to go, what I want to experience, who’s company I want to enjoy? I often talk about the fact that thought without action won’t yield any tangible results. What I’m realizing in taking this time out to reflect upon things is that action without thought won’t get you what you really want in life.
What do I want? Seems like a fairly innocent and straightforward question – but is it? In my experience, both personally, and as an observer in many of my clients lives there seems to often be a drastic difference between what we really want and what we think we can get. It’s easy to ask for something that you can see a clear path in which to receive it. The real answer to the question “what do I want?” often doesn’t outline a clear path for you to follow and therefore becomes, often down right scary. But, will playing small, playing within the boundaries of what “looks” possible really allow your heart and soul to sing out? Will playing small give you the energy to live your life to it’s fullest potential?
Take some time during these rainy days and ask yourself the question: What do I want? One recommendation I have is write the question out with your dominant hand, then, put the pen in your non-dominant hand and write down whatever answers come to your mind. Don’t judge yourself, don’t worry about how you’d make “that” happen, just have fun with it. Go big – don’t hold back.
Let me know how it goes,
