I see an ocean of sky before me, the waves crashing nearly silently on the white sandy beach. Tall green grasses say in the light breeze coming on shore. I recognize this place. It’s where I enter; go to my place of existence, the place where I find my wisdom teachers.
I turn my back to the ocean, the bluest and clearest of waters, to see the path of green carpet awaiting the feel of my footsteps. I walk toward that path, my path.
My path. What exactly is my path? I know I’m on one, but is it the right one?
“Sit down, my child,” he says to me. I do what he asks. There is a large grey rock that mysteriously shapes itself to me.
“What can I do for you, my child,” he asks.
I am silent for a moment. What do I want to ask, what do I need to find out, what is my most pressing question I need answers to…. I normally ask this of God, who is my Source, but so is the Gandolf look-a-like. Is it good to have more than one source? Perhaps. Never mind that now, let’s ask him the questions.
“Wisdom teacher, I have fought long and hard to reach this place, the place where I’m at in my professional life…”
“And you have done well, my dear.”
“But I feel there is a missing link, a piece I’m not seeing to jump the hurdle into the success I’d thought to have by now, these nearly four years later…. “
“You have done well, my dear one…. but you cannot do it alone… you need help of the others who’ve gone before you.”
And so went the conversation.
My wisdom teacher is correct; I cannot walk this path alone and have acknowledged as much by joining a 6-month mastermind group. I have already reached a certain level of success, clients, wealth, and happiness, yet there is more out there for me… I owe it to those I serve, my followers, those who learn and invest their time and resources with me.
I look forward to the new year and all that will be brought to me and all that I bring to it.
How do you see the times to come? I’d love to hear.
To your success,
“Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day. Such is the salutation to the dawn.” ~Sanskrit Proverb
