On, In, and Around Mondays: Seeing What's Already There
Down by the river, I open Think and Grow Rich. Not to become rich, necessarily, but to consider the role of thought in the "richness" of life.
I love what Hill says. Our thinking transmutes into physical reality.
Somehow this sets me to looking around at what's already here near the river. I find a stone, sparkling in the sun, and note that the same stone goes blank in the shade. What if you and I are a sparkly stone? What if we decide it's time to understand that we need to be in the sun, to bring that into view? What if we aim all our thoughts in that direction—towards sunshine? What might change?
It's a warm day. I look down at my shoes. Aren't I near a river? What if I thought a little harder about what that means, about what kind of opportunity is ebbing and flowing not ten feet away?
Maybe my thoughts lead me to take off my shoes and enjoy the coolness of river air.
It's still a warm day. The river is still ebbing and flowing. Have I considered this yet? Truly considered it? If so, maybe I remove my socks. The cool river air is now touching my skin.
Well? What about the water? Have I thought about that?
If I think about the water, I suddenly understand what I need to do. And within moments, my thought transmutes into physical reality. I am touching the water. It is touching me.
Hill is right. Our thoughts transmute into physical reality. It's time I open my eyes to see.
On, In and Around Mondays (which partly means you can post any day and still add a link) is an invitation to write from where you are. Tell us what is on, in, around (over, under, near, by...) you. Feel free to write any which way... compose a tight poem or just ramble for a few paragraphs. But we should feel a sense of place. Would you like to try? Write something 'in place' and add your link below.
If you could kindly link back here when you post, it will create a central meeting place. :)
