1. The opportunities you hope for. Like waiting at the Bus Stop hoping that Angelina Jolie (or Brad Pitt!) will walk up to you and say 'Hi, I'm an opportunity, would you like to take advantage of me?'
2. The opportunities that you CREATE.
So because I am on the downward spiral of the Bell curve, and my precious seconds, and heartbeats, and breaths are getting depressingly minimal, and I have made a complete botch of everything so far, I have to change things. And so I am. I am MAKING things happen using EXPERIENCE, which I have no shortage of because there is plenty of the PAST to work with. Getting the drift Dotty?
So I am using my less than enviable current position to CREATE an enviable future before I lose lots of weight like in the top photo! And I am doing this by CREATING A STORY.....a FUTURE STORY! To create the story, thereby creating the opportunities going forward I am using EXPERIENCES working BACKWARDS..........ENTER the DREAM!
I have created my dream using NEEDSEARCH which, as the name implies, means that I have meticulously studied MY needs, as well as the other dots in my dream. In other words YOU! These NEEDS of yours, and mine, are many and varied, and I haven't a lot of time to do it. And more importantly HOW do I do it?
Well, let's go back to my little EVOLUTION series, huh? As a little kid I was totally reliant on a GUIDING HAND, something I haven't got any more. Working Backwards, I go back to a little Bubba where I don't get to make any decisions. They are made for me. Then I go back to me being a Foetus in Mum's Tum. In this stage I did a lot of sleeping because all of the survival tools were supplied. Oh how I would love those days back again. No problems, no worries.
Then let's Work Backwards just a little more to the embryo. In the latter stages I was forming into a beautiful butterfly (sorry 'bout the dramatics....weeelll it's MY story Dotty!). But then let's Work Backwards to the EARLY stages of embryoism (I know, I made it up!), let's say the first two weeks after Uinsane and Egg Ahead started the hatching process. Hmmm, now it's getting interesting. What was I then? No arms, legs, brain (They seem to have left that out altogether!), no heartbeat, breath. No, well....NOTHING. I wasn't alive and yet I apparently was a LIFE. Now this is where I get stuck in this evolution process. This was the beginning of my real search for meaning.
This is where I have gone a little bit NUTS (oh, OK a BIG bit!) in my quest for answers.
I'm not the first to go down this path but it does lead into something that HELPS explain some of the mystery. That something is (big drumroll).......
Now before you throw me in the garbage bin with all of the other fruits, flakes and nuts, I must 'fess up that it is this precise area of psychiatric and spiritual phenomena, that has inspired me to pursue the journey that I am taking. Because by following my evolution backwards I have been able to use my LIFE EXPERIENCES, even as an embryo, to give me the gifts, the inspiration to CREATE the FUTURE that I now CHOOSE.
Now I know I might be sounding a bit psychotic and one sick, confused puppy, but it is this study that has given me Mister SomeOne Out-There and the GIFTS he has provided. The GIFTS that enable me to RE_INVENT myself.
By following my journey you will begin to understand. And when you see more specific STEPS unfold and complete as my journey continues, THEN you will be able to apply these principles to your own journey.
