Key To Success

What do you do when you come across a key to success in a book you're reading? You ponder over it. Since I read many books and come across many keys, I thought it would be fun to share the ideas that arise as I contemplate a key to success. Reading is not just about absorbing information, it's also about contemplating, allowing the ideas to blossom within, and nurturing a seed tossed in the rich soil of the inner garden.

I got my Master's degree in psychotherapy more than a decade ago. Since then I've studied the human condition with fascination. Over the years, I've learned a singular lesson: your life does not work when you oppose your soul nature. If you want a magical life, you have to drop your inauthentic transactions with the world. You discover your own power when you spend time alone to figure out what you really love to do.

How An Idea Can Lift You

What determines your destiny? What predisposes your choices?

It is your intention.

When you hunt for your dreams, you become a magician. When what is out there emerges from what is in here, you experience joy.

In the silence of your mind, you can think original, stirring thoughts. You can find what stirs you. When you find what moves you, you can determine the direction in which you wish to be moved.

Your days, by default, may lead you down many false roads, roads where you fail to find a sense of purpose, roads where you lose your poise, your balance, and your sense of your own presence.

Yet through an act of stubborn resolve, you can turn everything around for yourself. You can courageously dream up some great purpose that lights the fire in your belly.

Simply through a moment of thoughtfulness, you can find a way to rise above the profane and enter into the sublime.

When your life becomes more than merely surviving and socializing, you let a new spirit emerge from you to pierce the world.

Make lists, then, not of things that need to be done but of things that you never dared to do before.

What fiction can match the romance of creating your own reality?

From the depths of fantasy, you can birth a new reality, substituting the clouds of your limitations for the sun of your aspirations. Armed with a dream, guided by a hidden purpose, moved by a willful intensity, you will find yourself lifted by the wings of some great and noble intention.

Time will pass; events will unfold; but somewhere in that flux, you can find a great premise that will guide you like a lover.
