I love getting a bird’s eye view of the story of Something Wanted.
There’s the dreamy thing I want. Mmmm. Fabulous. Can’t wait. Reaching for it. Almost got it.
Or maybe it’s far away, very elusive, in the distant future. Frustrated, never getting there. Been trying for years.
People feel this way about finding a mate, success in their career, money, achieving enlightenment.
Not quite having it, or not having it for a very long time….both could generate a little stress.
Or become very aggravating.
But getting that broad, expansive, all-inclusive view from a higher altitude where you can see the whole landscape, can be a great relief.
Doing The Work is a way to get that view.
Is it true that I want it?
Is it true that I don’t have it yet? What do I want it for, anyway? Why do I imagine that I don’t have this thing? What terrible thing will happen if I never get it?
The mind is very interested in these questions.
It is very interested in the potential failure, the absence of this wanted thing, how to prevent lack of achievement, what should be done next, and how to fix this situation, improve it, or make a plan.
The mind has the vision.
Fabulous partner. One Million Dollars. Applause From Audience. Liberation.
People do all kinds of crazy stuff….well, OK…I myself have done all kinds of crazy stuff in order to GET that desired state in the future.
Spent money. Gone on retreats. Hired specialists.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that. In fact everything I’ve ever been drawn to has been a beautiful step or experience in whatever needed to come next.
But without that push, that focused, sometimes grabby, demanding energy that really believes it needs that thing…..who would you be?
“What” would you be, without that thought of the Something Wanted?
That means, there is nothing required of you. Can you feel how amazing that is?
