May I take you a bit deeper into the conversation of life mastery? I believe, by now, that you are seeing the principle by which your creative power flows – ‘if you are to produce results, you must take action!’
We are living in a physical realm of existence, and there is a reason for that – we are here to experience our superlatively creative ability. How do we do that? By actualizing our abstractions (this is my opinion).
What I mean by an abstraction… is an ethereal ideal that we want to make real. If you are to climb an ‘ideal’ up the rungs of the Doing Ladder (so that you may experience it as real)… you must have clarity-of-vision. You must be able to vividly imagine the outcome you are seeking. When it is clear – the action-steps become apparent to you.
Without taking action steps (climbing that vision up the rungs of the Doing ladder), there are no results. Without a clear vision of the outcome you seek – your action is ineffective. It all ties in wonderfully.
You know when your vision is clear in your head because you can feel it in your heart… it’s a Felt-Vision! Without a Felt-Vision guiding the way the results will be unsatisfactory.
I imagined owning an exotic sports car. I researched exotic sports cars and found the perfect one for me. I cut the picture of the car out of a magazine and carried it with me. I looked at it at least 100 times each day. I took the necessary action-steps to actualize this abstraction only after I could feeeeel myself driving the car! The feeeeeling inspired me, and the right and perfect action-steps came to me. Walking this vision up the rungs of the Doing Ladder became a joyful adventure!
(1) What was once out of your reach… something that required a felt-vision to motivate you to take the action steps to achieve it?
(2) In what domain of your life are you failing to create the Felt-Vision that you need. In what domain of living are you failing to climb ‘the ideal that you want to make real’ up the rungs of the Doing Ladder?
The domains in which we live (if you missed this last time … here they are again): mental… emotional… physical… spiritual… family… financial/ material… and… social. Right now I am working on more peace of mind in my daily living experiences. I consider this a combination of the… mental… spiritual… and… emotional domains.
I hope this blog helps you probe deeper into your own lives… blessings!
