The theme for this fortnight is The Gift of Higher Vision. As human beings we are designed to go for gold, we are designed to aim high, to reach our fullest potential. This is something we want for the children of the world but as we get older we can sometimes downgrade our vision or expect others around us to downgrade. This could be due to a million reasons. Life has put up some big challenges and we think it is more practical, realistic or grown up to downgrade. The difficulty is that we are never happy with second unless we have given it our best shot. The brain doesn’t understand about mistakes because it loves learning. We cannot learn unless we go down new paths, try new things, take risks, have a go etc.
I remember being told once that I could have everything I wanted, just not all at once. Energy follows intent. If you want something to happen or to be a certain way in life then first allow for the picture or idea to form in your mind and then there is the Make it so part. Little plans or big plans are just the same; they are the sum of our dreams, hopes, planning and genuine effort to get there. Habits are habit forming. If what you want is to change something about yourself, focus on what you are doing, the habit you want to bring in practice, and then observe rather than criticise any time you go off track.
