Tonight’s entry will be short and sweet, I hope! Even though I’ve had a weird kind of day — my Morning Pages became an Evening Page! — I am making sure I’m doing this.
Why not just skip it if I’m having a less than stellar day? Who cares? Maybe twenty or so people who respond to any given post. Why? Because I need to manifest core Self and because that is why I came with a core Self, I co-created with that Self and Spirit a purpose of making Self known as a discoverer, one involved in a drive to discover, to seek, to know. It fit. It worked for my mind, soul, and Heart.
When I had considered that, spoken with my Heart about it, I envisioned my discoveries, the process, the journey, the truths being shared through writing, primarily, and elements embodied in that process and outgrowths of it. They are works I enjoy, too, including speaking, teaching, and working with individuals to help them in their process of discovery.
And that leads to my mission, which I shared last night, a statement that pulls all of these steps together, including Self-identity, Purpose, and Vision. My mission contains a statement of who I am, what characterizes my work, and how I want that characterization to be manifested.
Step 5 tonight is, as they say, where the rubber meets the road: Goals. This is where we lay out a road map to make it all work. It’s where I list jobs, tasks, and give myself assignments. This is the how of making the mission work. Many schemes exist for laying out goals. If you don’t have one, check some out.
For me, I make it simple: short-, medium-, and long-term goals. And each one has actions, things I need to get up and do every single day. And the awesomely, cool, groovy, wonderful aspect of all this is that when I get up in the morning, I want to get going on my work for the day.
I analogize this all to Heart being like that golden thread, and when you keep it running through the material of your life, it keeps things tight, real, focused, and blessed. And it’s that daily work that tightens it up. If it’s Heart-centered, life becomes dynamic, significant, and full of wonderful work, relationships, and joy.
So, I write sometimes when other things aren’t going well, when I am not geared up for it, or when I have other things I could be doing because I have a desire and drive to do it.
And I am not some great writer. I know I see mistakes when I go back and read some of these posts. In the past when I allowed more Ego control, I would have probably done one of these posts a month and it would have been flawless. That’s just not going to help me accomplish my mission. I have my work laid out, and this is part of it.
Of course, my hope is my work means something to you, to others. I hope maybe it gives you opportunity to engage in discovery for yourselves.
I’ll keep writing. It’s on my list!
Questions to consider:
How many times have you asked yourself or simply thought about the following questions?
Who am I, really?
What is my truth?
How do my actions reveal what I really feel and believe?
What would I do with my life if I could do anything?
What is my passion?
Why am I here?
How can I discover answers to any of these questions?
If you have considered any of these questions, I hope that my experiences and writing will give you some guidance. Please read my blog and comment and share your thoughts. I would love to hear from you!
