BRAINSTORM UP A FUTURE. JOG THE MIND. IGNITE the PILOT LIGHT of the MIND from the FLAME OF THE SOUL
Time's a wasting. You know that you have NOT YET accomplished your mission in life. You haven't done that really big THING yet ---but not to worry! George Bernard Shaw didn't write a play 'til he was forty. Then, he continued with success 'til he was 100. Grandma Moses didn't start painting until she was 90, and she continued beyond l00. You've got time, but you really do need a lesson on using the brain and soul together, as only then can one MOVE BEYOND the habitual, 'soft' THOUGHT pathways and dare to step out of the box and move beyond humdrum probabilities into the BOLD ZONE.
Today, with a little prodding, you're going to break out of the habitual-thinking mold. To do this exercise in magic, print out the questionaire below, 14 sized, slightly big print, leaving spaces for your penned in answers. Get a flash light, note pad, eyeglasses and a bold marker pen. Walk out into the garden. Wrap yourself in a sheet so mosquitos won't get you, lie down in the hammock. Look up at the stars and ask yourself ---
a.) What are my GOD GIVEN talents? But ask yourself in a new way. Throw your eyesight to the heavens, look at some distant star, to the multiple SUNS created by the infinite source of all life. Ask HIM or ask IT: "What do I SHINE AT already?" Quite a few things will come to you. You speak Spanish well. You cook. You love and trust people. You do photography. You are socially graceful. Politeness 'ain't nuttin!' You know Calculus. Or other things. Write them down. Then ask your big stellar companion. "Tell me, WHAT DID GOD want me to do with these talents when I was born? What did I promise God that I'd do with these talents in this lifetime?
b.) Next, say to yourself, "if I could dream big, WHAT ARE MY DRUTHERS?" This would be a list of things you really prefer to do. That sweetheart in this or that house, together. We'd be Fishing, we'd be in Acapulco. I'd be Gardening. I'd have an orchard and a vegetable garden. But we'd go to Paris for a month each year. GET CLEAR on the DRUTHERS.
c.) What mission do I want to accomplish before I die? Personal, or say, political, sacrificial, intellectual. A legacy as it were. Or is it familial? something that I want to leave to my family? What would be your material legacy as well as your spiritual legacy? What LESSONS, warnings, life chores or businesses do you want your kids or relatives to do. Warren Buffet is a firm believer in leaving WORK to the heirs. In fact, he defines money as HOW many people he can pay to do stuff after he's gone. It's a"claim check for labor" he says, for others in the future. IS THAT CLEAR THINKING OR WHAT?
d.) And if I did this mission, what would that look like? What training is required? What kind of communal team helping me work would I need? How would I create this team? What extant structures would help me? Craigs List? What bases do I have to hit, what things would I have to do to IMPLEMENT this vision? A living room group? Studying at different lectures around town? Adult High School? University Extension? Where would I meet them? Galleries? Selective partying? Could I create the parties to select just that kind of interest, whether art, holism, import/export? And the last question ..it isn't the CHARIOT itself, but maybe it IS the MOTOR for the whole thing would be "How could I make the most money possible, if that were what I wanted to do? Take it to what level? Write down all those answers. THEN, throw off the sheet, studded with mosquitos, come in to the house.
E.) You now have moved into THE ACTION PHASE. Such questions as these will encourage some magical spark of Heavenly assistance to leap from Infinite mind to Finite-YOU-mind. Suddenly, your spark plugs will kick in. You will be astonished, charged up with wonderment and now you will implement your answers. As you sit in your bedroom, read the list carefully. Go to sleep perchance to dream about it. Meditate the next morning, perchance to have vibrant morning mind give you other puzzle pieces. Continue to read the list the next few days, morning and night, and filling in more things that come to you.
Within a few reading-jotting sessions, you will start to come up with the perfect LIFE SCHEDULE for the next few years. A TO-DO list. Your agenda. Write upon that list. THE STEPPING STONES. It may be a Classroom, a lecture series, a library book, or going to libraries regularly. Meeting bankers. Meeting wealthyier people who invest in such ideas. It may be writing up a prospectus which creates a FAST EXCHANGE OF VENTURE CAPITAL.It may be STUDYING business at library with old copies of FORTUNE and FORBES magazine.
As you move on the stepping stones, these events, abilities, friend-groups and things willl come, they only seem to be in your future but they are vigorously rooted in your past. Who/what you are, What parents and school taught you. Your sensitivities. Maybe even past lives account for those talents. The reason wny you're not on that track yet is you're not working at these goals, you haven't made your list or hung it on the wall. WHY NOT? The next question becomes:
f.) what are my real time wasters? What are my ENERGY STEALERS, addictions, junk food pigouts that blur circulation in head. What are the things I do that leave me so wasted that I am slowed down. So emotionally frazzled that I over react and ping pong and zig zag around like a loco monkey. Each one gets a list and if you aren't candid, call a relative out to the hammock to make suggestions.
g.) How am I going to lose these enemies. What help can I get? Am I mature enough to have my own VOWS not to go there....work?
You've not got a sheaf of pages of notes circling the original questions. Continue to WRITE INTO the file on paper but now create a PC FILE which is an HTM file, and any wordprocessor can handle it or print it out and leave spaces, answering each question with your typed answers. HANG those ANSWERS where you can see them, so you can't get off the hook. ON A BULLETIN BOARD near your desk.
FACING THAT BULLETIN board daily in your office will do the rest.
