The way I see it now-
All is process
Creativity is within the alternating states,
between inertia and activity, hot and cold, male and female, past and future, yin and yang.....
And in the process of life experience creation, one wavers between projection and introjection.
Dreaming, and having your feet on the ground.
To be stuck in either obstructs creation.
Part of the process you are refering to is "letting go". One moves into that other reality (their dream, their desire, their intent) and experiences
it... they do so for a while, then they must return to this one, and anchor themselves in this one again.
That other reality is then part of you, but won't become anchored and start merging with this one unless you come back here and plant it!
This is the misunderstanding people had for quite a while in the "positive reinforcement" trend of childrearing- keep telling the child they are
wonderful an talented, they will become so. Didn't happen. Because that is great for forming the dream future, but unless they are brought back here
with realistic awareness of who they are, it won't grow. They NEED the balance of awareness of their shortcomings, their weaknesses, too.
To create your own life, you project and live dreams,
and then be here, now, realistically and centered.
Then the two begin to merge in process.
Be like Alice, tall one minute with head in clouds,
small the other, and close to the ground.
I put up a photo of a Mercedes M class car on my fridge about 7 months ago.
It was an experiment in this method. It was almost humorous as we could not afford anything of the sort.
The whole family laughed at the silliness of it. But I looked at it each day and I drove it in my mind, and felt the leather seats, and that stearign
wheel under my fingers....
Then after six months, during a whirlwind spring cleaning urge, I decided that was nonsense, and threw it away.
Two days later my husband got a call from another company that is hunting him down and would like to offer him a position. He's getting an Audi Q3-
and I'm getting a Mercedes M class that a garagist friend just happened to have enter his possession for sale. Strangely enough, it is the same model
I had on the fridge, in the same color!
I think the process was set off after I had invested energy, then came back down to earth. That "brought it home".
