We all want many different things in life and, as a consequence, it seems we are so often pulled in so many different directions it is exhausting. It seems impossible for us to have everything we want.
Yet it is possible. The more aligned our path in life is to our true essence, to the most complete expression of who We Truly Are, the easier and more graceful our progress becomes. There are three keys that can help us create this. Each key is a point of focus on our path and if these three are aligned all things along our path tend to fall into place.
Our ‘to do’ list are things which we already know how to do, we just have to organise ourselves to get them done. Usually these are things that we need to do over the next couple of months, at most.
Our goals differ from our ‘to do’ list because they require us to learn and grow, to master some new skill or overcome some old obstacle. That’s the point, actually, because our goals motivate us to grow. Generally, most goals will take us two to five years to complete.
Our dreams differ from our goals because they aren’t real to us right now. That’s the point. When we focus on our goals we’re generally taught that we need an ‘action plan’ for them and that we have to consider what is possible. Dreams enable us to consider the impossible and give ourselves permission to play with the idea of what it would be like if we had a life which is currently out of our reality. By allowing ourselves to play with these extraordinary ideas we begin to connect with them. Without dreams we wouldn’t be able to grow beyond our current reality. Considering what our life could be like in thirty to forty years is a good way to tap into our dreams. That length of time is enough for our minds to be able to accept that anything is possible.
Yet our dreams give an overall alignment to our life. They enable us to find the best way to align our goals and our ‘to do’ list. It is the long focus of our dreams which create the easiest and most graceful alignment of our path, and also enable us to go beyond our current reality.
Often in so much less time than thirty to forty years! If only we give ourselves permission to dream of our happiest life.
