I had a breathrough today. I put the following post about it on Facebook.
I don't expect any comments on this one, but feel free. I started studying sort of an esoteric topic about four years ago. My colleagues mostly said it was a dead end, the Greeks probably wrapped it up a few millennia ago, it won't really connect with your work. I tried to explain it to others and they politely nodded their head and changed the subject. But we do what we want to do and usually not what people tell us to do. I stayed with it off and on. This morning I saw Sonya off to work and laid back on the bed to watch the last of a documentary I had started as I ate breakfast and before I set off for the day.
I fell asleep for maybe fifteen minutes and when I awoke, I saw how it all connected to what I was doing in my work. I don't have all the details fleshed out, but I do see the connection, have the outline, wrote four pages of notes and sort of have the map that says in big letters, "DIG HERE!"
Why did it happen and why now?
1. It was on my mind. I had returned to thinking about it again.
2. I had got up with Sonya and sort of asked myself a question about it. I had set the gears in motion. If you want answers, then ask questions.
3. I let it go. The subconscious mind works in the back ground. You don't have to make any real effort for it to work. You probably don't even know when it works. Let an idea or thought go instead of holding on to it and then it can change, develop, grow, resolve. Hold on to something with all of your might and it can be like sand. The harder you squeeze, the quicker it escapes your grip. Until you back away you can't see the forest for the trees.
The connections before were like smoke, I couldn't explain it to people. The harder I tried the more ridiculous it sounded. I let it go and it came back full grown and big as life.
Where in life are you stuck? Would you be willing to try thinking about it in depth for a few minutes, maybe even the quarter of an hour, even half an hour and then just let it go? Like film from a camera you drop off at the photo lab, it just might come back fully developed and in clear picture form.
Best and be blest,
