IMAGINATION & MOTIVATION HELPS US SUCCEED.
Imagining our goal and holding the ‘right motivation’ is necessary for success in any field. Visualizing our goal helps empower us and guides us in the right direction. This strategy also applies to our inner quest of self-development.
Having the correct motivation helps the visualization process. It adds depth of meaning and purpose to that visualization. We can better envision our role if we know what our motivation & purpose is. It makes the visualization more real! Let’s now explore what this desired future might look like.
…What kind of future do you want to visualize?
IMAGINE YOURSELF ACTING WISELY & LOVINGLY.
Imagine yourself utilizing higher awareness, compassion & loving kindness. What role would you choose? Envision yourself in that role.
● We would offer our effort & talents freely & joyously.
● We would aim to improve ourselves & benefit others.
● We would act lovingly without judgment or attachment.
● We would follow our passion & joy without causing harm.
…Can you imagine yourself behaving that way in your ideal role?
OUR PERSONAL QUEST IS OUR ULTIMATE TEST!
Such a personal quest is perhaps our ultimate challenge or test. Our imagination & passion determines what is possible! Our quest is the measure of our unique individual potential in this human experience. It will require us to test our limits. But we should always work at our own pace.
Most people on a life quest also aspire to some degree of personal, emotional or spiritual mastery. Will you choose personal mastery?
…What would this self-mastery look like for you?
● Can you visualize what unconditional love might look & feel like?
● Can you imagine expanding this love to all humanity and sentient life?
● Can you expand your awareness & love to encompass all that exists?
WE CAN GO BEYOND THOUGHT, TIME & SPACE.
The concept of ‘Oneness’ is rather abstract, but still very important. Oneness is the final destination of our personal growth. But it is impossible to truly grasp what Oneness means through ‘normal thinking’.
Conventional thinking also prevents us from understanding the concept of Infinity & Eternity. These are abstract concepts that can only be approximated when using our logical mind.
There is, however, another approach to embracing these concepts. This utilizes the enhanced capacities of a meditative or tantric state. Meditation can accelerate the opening of our hidden inner resources. Through meditation practice, we can better tune in and connect to our subconscious mind. This subconscious mind gives us answers in the form of an insight or realization.
OUR SUBCONSCIOUS OFFERS HIGHER AWARENESS.
The meditative state allows us to connect to a broader or more panoramic form of awareness. This broader perspective is termed ‘higher awareness’. We can also access a deeper form of insight that is not possible with conventional thinking. We call this an ‘inner knowing'. This enables more inspiration and helps unleash our pure genius! This is the AHA-moment that highly successful people talk about.
…Have you experienced an insight that came from a higher perspective?
INSIGHT COMES FROM ENGAGING IN THE ‘NOW’.
It is hard to explain how such powerful realizations occur. The insight appears to be downloaded in a compressed format. In computing terminology this unfolds itself much like the unzipping of a big file download. This occurs automatically when our thinking mind is quiet or distracted for long enough. We have to be receptive enough and open to allow this experience.
This receptive or meditative state can also be triggered by many natural activities. This includes nature, music, dance, art or any joy filled activity. This inner connection also promotes a feeling of bliss, loving kindness & equanimity.
LOVING COMMUNION CONNECTS CONSCIOUS LIFE.
This feeling of connectedness and oneness can extend to our Universe or the entire Cosmos. This connection can eventually help us to embrace ‘all that is and will be’. This can include being beyond time & space in an eternal ‘NOW’.
…Are you inspired by this grand goal? Or perhaps a little intimated?
This is a very grand goal. But there is a simple way to start such an exploration. We will discuss how to begin this inner journey, next.
