One of the joys of going into this transition to fall and “looking within” is to contemplate how thoughts are tied to actions. If we continue to practice our Medicine training, these thoughts may become acute manifestations in our waking life.
When we are intentional about how we enter the Silence to create a living, breathing image that we may hold for the self, we are “dreaming”. We have the ability to transform our vision of the self and create something new.
As we sculpt the form of this new self, ideas abound. New pathways for understanding how to implement new actions come because, no matter what our circumstance, we are perpetually creative beings. There is force and power in that.
I had a friend who posted this sentence on her refrigerator: “Don’t you ever, ever–never, never– give up!”
I like this quote from Wayne Gretsky: “You miss 100% of the shots you never take.”
