You know what they say: Don’t try to run before you can walk. This was brought home to me most vividly this last week when I witnessed my granddaughter of 15 months wanting to get from A to B as quickly as possible, focussed on the goal and with no regard to what lay in her path, tripping and falling and with no skill yet to put her hands forward to save herself got covered in bruises on her forehead! As usual at that age the learning curve is vertical.
Even we adults are also guilty of rushing into things when a little forethought and planning would avoid the inevitable trips and mistakes that seem to rise up like mountains, instead of the pebbles they really are that we could see as such with just a modicum of measurement and risk management beforehand.
It is a fact that rather than rushing headlong into the unknown, thinking you will find your way as you go, a deliberate, specific plan is the best and safest way forward to avoid the time wasting diversions and wrong turns that can otherwise occur.
But here’s the most important ingredient that needs to be incorporated into any plan that you make: make sure that the essential elements of joy, pleasure and happiness are written into any blueprint, contract or agreement that you may consider making. Happiness for you that is!
It may sound daft to those of you left brain dominant doyens of decision makers but just think about it for a moment. If it’s just money, i.e. profit, which guides your thinking then there may not be actual happiness in the final outcome of the equation that prompts your planning or negotiations. Let happiness and joy be your guiding light in all that you do, envision and desire.
There is a lot to be said for ‘sleeping on it’. The information exchange that flows back and forth between the waking conscious mind and the sub-consciousness can bring elements of desire into your plans that were not foreseen at the moment of the original idea. So savour your ideas and let them formulate at consciousness levels, as I say, even overnight so that possible errors and mistakes can be excluded at the mental level before your plans become physical.
As we have prompted in the past whatever you consider and think about, plan or decide upon, sends out a vibration that is immediately matched by the universal source. It is a reflection, if you like, that will respond to you in the manner that you send out. So, if you have in fact incorporated the essential elements of happiness and joy then that is what will be mirrored back to you.
In the wider context, which with my defined focus I am constantly trying to broaden, there is one more element that you may consider to include in your quest, whatever that may be and for whatever reason, and that is the general gift of goodness. If you can see your way to generate within your specific plans the highest good of not only you and yours, but also the highest good of all, then there is a greater, brighter and more immediate reflection of your final actualisation.
As usual the choice is yours, but with all of these aspects to consider, together with the normal economic elements, you can see why the maxim of ‘being easy’ is a good one to become part of your daily decision making.
Take your time and let joy be your ultimate goal. With Love, Hanukah
