FLY,
.
To other lands and realms and ways of being. Fly to some distant memory and smile or cry to it. Ascend a mountain or a hill or just a hot air balloon basket on top of an old warehouse and be in that.
.
Sometimes changing our orientation just for a moment--leaving the present moment/place/time can be a useful tool to re-arrive here and now. It is in that mental or physical venturing out that we often remember. We remember that we are not just that mind, and not just that body. But we are a being that can simply close our eyes and transcend time and space. We can reel back the clock to a single moment in our life, ever seared within the fabric of our mind/brain. Likewise, we can project ourselves and ideas far into the future. We envision a life for ourselves and maybe others that could very well become a version for our reality. Sometimes the ideas take root in the fabric of reality and the minds of others and can become things! Other times the daydreams and mountain climbs just become faint memories of the mind tinkering away.
.
And as I write, I realize that this post is about the power of thoughts. Thought create your reality, and every manufactured thing you see, also began as a thought.
.
So WATCH your thoughts, without getting caught in their web, in their wanderings. Direct your thoughts to the good, to the healing, to the compassionate and empathetic. And then, lift your hands to do the work.
.
Every so often it's important that we pull our heads out of the sand, climb something tall and see with a fresh perspective. See the immensity of what is and imagine what could be. Then, from this space, we return back to the present moment-- to bones and blood and wood and soil and water and and and, even this, right here and Now. Breathe in the fullness of Now. Open all of what you are to the infinite possibilities (or the only one) that lay before you.
.
Now go out there and do that--be that. Climb the tree, close your eyes, venture away, remember, forget, feel, let go, begin again. Begin. Again.
