Who are the most agile and innovative beings on this earth ? Children! Along our journey to freedom we must remember how to move through this universe as if we are children.For instance if a child is placed in a new environment they are capable of adapting and thriving given the proper circumstance. The innovation from within will allow them to be able to accomplish amazing things. Take for example the act of learning how to walk and what you must observe in order to be motivated to take the next step. When a child takes has accomplished their first steps in this life he or she recognizes 3 simple things.
- I am not were I was
- I am not where I want to be
- How to get from where I am to where I want to be?
Our Journey to Freedom can be compared to this experience of learning to walk .Even as we age we are no different than a toddler stumbling through its first journey across the living room floor as it relates to Universe. As we continue further into our journey any step we take whether large or small will put you in a new space by its very definition. When you have challenged your self to take action and you are rewarded by stepping into a new space in which you will be able to take a deep breath and acknowledge that “I am not where I was”. Here is also where we will learn progress is rewarded and should be celebrated by creating opportunities that were not available to you previously.
For example in the article The Big Quit I share my experience of quitting my job in order to gain more freedom , once I did quit my job I was able to look around and observe my new situation and identify what new freedoms I afforded my self by taking this step. As a result I am now able to dedicate more time to discovering things that I am passionate about in this life like painting and writing for beautiful people like you!
- As a child of this Universe you must take a moment to adapt to this new perspective. Learn everything useful until you have done more than just adapted , you have learn how to thrive here.Soon you will have taken all the the nourishment that this space has to offer and you will began to say to yourself “I am not where I want to be ! “. It is easy to get stuck here because we become comfortable with the method that allowed us to make it this far. As humans we naturally repeat anything that produces a positive result and so we attempt to use the same method that got us this far in our journey.
- Define your Freedom
- Take Inventory of your life
- Take action.
What is going to happen here? We will continue to produce a consistently positive result just as before . But who among us wants to keep taking the first step , over and over again. Not Me ! So where does leave us ?
It leaves us Asking the question we as children of the Universe and humans on a path to freedom must continue to ask throughout the entire Journey. How do I get from where I am to Where I want to be ?
Innovation of course ! Without innovation our steps will make us travel in a circle but when we let ourselves be open to using the new information and freedom gained by experiences along this journey we are able to choose a new and rewarding direction in our path .With the addition of Innovation we now have an more efficient way to get to the next step. Now the process becomes
Be Innovative in your journey
Here is my next assignment. How can I use my newly discovered Freedom to get more ?
Until next time Keep Searching !
