We all have heard these or a version thereof. They are certainly good, encouraging and well intentioned cliches. The challenge is that for many people this thinking puts their desire, the thing they think they want, too far out into the future and too far out of focus.
If your focus is too far away, too generalized, your commitment to it, your passion or desire are likely also too far away and generalized. This can create a perception as insurmountable as the highest peek or as arduous as the longest journey.
Until we take the first step.
Interestingly what I have discovered is that the first step towards that which we desire is not one of action but rather one of allowing. We must allow ourselves to see the good that is already surrounding us. When we can see what we already have we are no longer acting from need or lack but rather from appreciation and abundance.
From this place our desire will act like a magnet, pulling us forward rather than something we pursue. It will be a place to be not a place to get to. From this place we can really allow a flow of desire and begin the joyful journey towards it.
