How, How, How?

When you are setting goals and dreaming dreams, having hopes and exercising the real, raw courage to own your desires and actually “want” what you “want”, how is the best tool of the ego, to cut through, reduce and diminish your dreams. If you knew the “how,” what you wanted would already be here. Face it! You don’t know the “how” and it isn’t even your business. So get your nose of the “how” and get your nose back into your business, which is to own your wants and your desires. Admit that you have them, admit that you want what you want. I know, I know, you are afraid that you will get what you want and find out that it isn’t what you really want and you’re afraid that you will feel like a failure or like you are a fool. Actually, each wanting builds upon the last. You can’t get to where you’re going without wanting, and then growing beyond that want to another and another and another. Give it a break, go ahead and dream and plan, and let the “how” appear as it will, as it always does. It comes from the Source, from God, from Higher Power, from Inspiration, out of the blue, in an instant, from a knock on the door, or a clue in a telephone call you least expected. The “how” is not the problem. You learning to dream and plan and set goals and keep the “how” out of the way –that is the problem. Everything that you think blocks your way can change in less than a mille-second. Now put your nose back where it belongs, and want what you want, desire what you desire, plan what you love, ask to find your passion. “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” –do you think Thomas Jefferson knew “how” that would happen when he wrote it down. No, he didn’t. I asked him.
