The task at hand
Inventing your own life is a creative personal work that requires you to be set free from the distance yet to travel, as well as from the first breath you took. Find a broken window, and climb through into the world we are now inventing as we speak.
One room is better than the next. Is that true? Can you still recall the dream of being in the very highest place imagined, and finding yourself well received? Is there room for you in this world of self-made ones, who know how to be strength itself?
Never come into a world of illusion without a purpose, or you roam from place to place, combining one thought with another, and in the mingling of thought come up with confused disaster. But you are one who understands this, if through a clouded window. Allow the window to clear itself.
Think of this as a double thought: knowing what's on the other side, as well as understanding that there is nothing separating you from that which is right in front of you.
"How" then becomes a question without an answer, so let that be settled once and for all. The answer is by knowing this is so. If today you invent a thought of how you will earn a daily living, and make it your truthful way of being, it is already appearing as we speak.
But what will happen if you then wish you had not pieced this thought together? This is the reason for confusion: making a wish and receiving it too soon to know what the wish entailed. Some things are better left for time's tempering.
Your wish right now is to enter into a new life without struggling for your way of living well. This is a rightful thought with clear intention, but it needs more clarity before we say, "now allow it to happen". The clarity it needs is held within your own intention.
What have you found thus far in a world with so much conflict? The remedy is always the same: release the struggle, and make another thought out of the difference you find in release. To bring yourself to the point of knowing this is so, you must be confronted with the very struggle you are willing to leave behind. Thus far fortune has been kind, letting you think and see before you.
Do the work of releasing your immediate past. But if this was a slow-moving intention, let yourself engage in a time of fast-paced letting go of all you simply will not have again in your life.
Indulgence is found in every aspect of human conditioning. It modulates your growth, the rules and regulations you are taught as a child, and the very breath you use to make your world. You refrain, then indulge, refrain, indulge. It is a rhythm you grow with for the length of your life, some more quickly than others. Some think of themselves as survivors, and thus do just that their entire lives, never understanding there is nothing left to survive but their own thought of survival.
Yes, you know how it works, but are you in the ring with a warrior that is still stuck in the same thought of surviving the next battle? This will never do; you have more important things to make.
A steady, even flow is what is needed. For your future is stilled until you arrive in the position to take up the thread in your hands, and begin to weave yourself a new life.
A simple thought is first: "how am I to work while alive, without it causing me to jumble the illusion once again?" A battle of words only.
Make the day a plausible display of undertaking your task for the betterment of your position, and walk from there.
"I am right where I must be to engage, yet not to overtax my inner peace." This is first.
Next we step up the pace: "What will I do to traverse this time/space before me?" Understand, there is no time/space, and be done with trying to bridge something not there. The only thought needed is for the task at hand, magically causing your attention to be in the present moment.
