Week 24 – The Two BIG Questions…One Answer
Would it be OK if I back up a few months?
I worked on my Definite Major Purpose in Life very diligently. Honing, tweaking getting the correct, positive phrasing. I would sit and first think. Then imagine. And finally I would envision with all my senses where I believed my Dharma would lead me.
I lived the interview for my Press Release. I would recite with enthusiasm no less that twice each day how my life would be.
But when I put those questions to myself I really had to dig deep into my heart. I felt stumped! How could I have possibly arrived at this point in my journey and could NOT recall my first steps. Heck! I could barely remember backing out of the driveway.
Have you ever driven along a familiar stretch of road for a few minutes… sometimes half an hour or more, and realized that you cannot remember one signpost or landmark? That was me.
I got so good at living in the moment that I was there, two years down the road and I had forgotten the journey.
As I read the Scroll marked VI I made a note at the end;
“Be proud of your story and be humbled by your journey.”
I have returned!
So fast forward to the two questions I have been asking myself;
What am I pretending not to know?
What would the person I intend to become do next?
I was pretending not to know what the person I intend to become would do next!
I look at the ” The cat/guy in the glass”.
Today I remember my journey, it is filled with her love, and I know what the person I intend to become would do next…and I am doing it. Only actions that advance my Personal Pivotal Needs…Legacy and Liberty!
