In response to a previous blog about fruition, people have send me emails stating that how we as humans need goals in our lives to pursue, things we want to achieve and learn from.
This is how we evolve and don't stagnate.
I completely agree that we need goals and that having ambition to achieve something is a building stone of being happy in life.
But that still doesn't mean that we have to perceive this goal to be a realization in a future moment. If we refer to this goal as being in the future, that means you have not accepted the way things are at this very moment. All we ever need to achieve is what we have in this very moment.
How about wanting to pursue a goal that has obviously not materialized yet in this present moment ?
When we believe that we have already attained our goals, if we believe that this is already our reality now, then what we believe inward will also manifest outward. 'Cause that is how we perceive. What we mentally label inward, what we think, becomes our reality outward.
So if you want to achieve a goal, become something, learn something, get a new job, house, or whatever, then believe that you have already attained this, so that this becomes a part of you, IN you, something tangible, rather than something that lies ahead of you, OUT of you, not reachable.
This way you have goals not out of neediness, but out of 'havingness'.
Act from the richness that you have inside, act from abundance, instead of acting from lack of.
This way, you can achieve goals in life, without having to think your present moment is lacking of..
If I apply this to my personal life situation, then one of my goals would be making movies. I know getting a degree in film would help pursuing that goal, and that time-dependent thinking would say that I only can make movies when I have attained that degree in a few years and find a way to make movies.
But if I redefine what would normally be expected of you when you want to make movies, then I'm already making them.
'Cause in my mind, I'm already coming up with stories to shoot, I'm already visioning scenes and camera movements, I'm already casting or even see me acting in a film, I'm already thinking about how I would edit it, and so on. And the moment I have a camera at hand, the only thing that I will be doing is shooting that what I'm already thinking, or visualizing.
And that goes for so many things in my life right now. Sure, I need a job soon, but what kind of job ? Something I feel comfortable in.. so I'm not just looking for a job, I'm trying to visualize a job that I think I would feel good in. And from that realization, I take action and know that I will attain exactly what I'll need for my personal evolution.
How would you apply this to your life ?
PS. Does having a lot of time on your hands make you think or what !
