The Thread of Passion

Monday, July 28, 2008

To get what you want, the success books tell you, you have to be able to see your goal, to visualize the object in detail, to affirm its reality daily, and to hold it in your mind. Then your dream will come true. The problem with this strategy is that what we want on a conscious level is often at odds with what we crave on the unconscious level. We are adept at finding countless ways to sabotage ourselves, and we blame it on circumstances...

This is because most of us have so much unprocessed debris floating in our emotional and subconscious realms that what we actually want and what we think we want are often quite disjointed.

If our wanting is to be positive and productive, not only for ourselves but for others, we must develop the clarity that comes from cleaning out and understanding our psychic space. This means we must first become aware of the various and largely unconscious comedies, tragedies, and farces whose scripts inhabit our inner beings.

Rather than seeking perfection or improvement, let us begin by trusting ourselves, by trusting the promptings of our inner being, and increasing that trust through action.

The question to ask, then, is greater than "What do I want to do?" Such a lukewarm question will not generate enough breakthrough passion. If choosing a career was simply a matter of choosing what you want or what you like, you could sit in the career counselor's office filling out forms that try to match your personality profile with the job market.

The anti-career needs to come from a deeper level, from the soul level. So a more appropriate question ask might be this: "How can I fully express the desire energy of life that nourishes and runs through me in a way that will enhance life itself?

Can you think of a better way to phrase the question?

OR ... what I have found is that the most "miraculous" breakthroughs come when I have completed my part and then "let go and let God" do the rest. I could NEVER have VISIONED for what manifested, because I had not yet EXPERIENCED the outcome. Sandra Rae Hymel

Well, I think the trick is to KNOW what "my part" is. That's the biggest rock I stumble over... the not knowing what is "mine" to do... or not being accepting of it... or feeling deserving of it... or whatever.

And I agree with you on "I could NEVER have VISIONED for what manifested, because I had not yet EXPERIENCED the outcome".
