If you feel like you’re flying blind…

Don’t worry about your life. You are right on target. Even if you feel off course.

Have you ever read about an airplane’s path to any goal? On the computer it sure looks like a straight line, but, did you know that about 98% of the time in the sky the plane will NOT be directly facing its goal? Yet, it arrives (roughly) when it was supposed to. (Your luggage is whole different story!)

The plane will make a zig zag constantly across it’s heading, that averages out to be a straight line. It’s gyroscope will steer it back to the left when winds and other forces have pushed it to the right, and vice a versa. When you look at it’s actual flight path you will see thousands of adjustments over the course to its goal. Think of you going to the store. You’ll make many turns to get there, but you were never lost even though you may not have been facing the direction of the store most of the time you were driving, right?

momentum and zig zagSo, don’t worry that you may not see your goal. Use your feelings, as your gyroscope, to let you know if you’re off course or not, to guide you back to a “centered” path.  Superficial winds won’t bother you as they blow left and right. You have something deeper down that is a build in orientation and heading.

Almost daily we may feel “just off-course” a little. Perfect!  That just lets you know that you’re still on target, or you wouldn’t have that feeling. You will always have that innate guidance telling you something is ON or OFF course.

We all get a free trajectory in life. There’s no rush, you’ll get there. Look back at where you’ve already made it from! You made it out of diapers (I’ll assume), you’ve learned to walk, you’ve passed some huge milestones. Give yourself some credit and a pat on the back for what you’ve done already. You’re doing great!

Like any journey, there’s a lot of room for turns. Each is just a different set of circumstances that you get to experience. They are not Wrong or Right, they’re just Life. You are only discovering Your favorite path.

Who’s butt has your nose?

Have you heard about Processionary Caterpillars? They move in long processions, head to tail, in groups in order to find nourishment, and then to find their way back to their nest.  

In fact, you can create a circle with these caterpillars, around a food source, and yet they won’t find it. Their Inertia, the resistance to change, is so great they will go round and round, and die of starvation and mal-nourishment despite having food only twelve inches away.

Caterpillars in a circle can actually die of undernourishment even while they’re appearing very active. Motivational Speaker Zig Ziglar  used to say “Don’t confuse Activity with Accomplishment.   Do you ever feel like Life’s highway is really more like a circular dead end culd de sac, than an express way to anywhere?  I sure used to.

And you remember what they say, right? – “If you ain’t the lead caterpillar, the view is always the same.”  The problem is when the lead caterpillar is only following the one it is put behind. (bad pun, sorry)processionary catepillar in law of attraction

Next time you feel you’re not getting the nourishment YOU need- lift your head. Change your View Point.  Take a few minutes to look around and see where you’re going. Who’s leading you?  Who’s effecting your path in life?

The Law of Inertia shows that we will remain at our speed and direction when we do not ALLOW an outside Force. UNLESS you are  Willing to step out of line and CREATE a new Momentum, things stay the same.  Use your Power to make choices. 

It’s nice to have a larger brain than a caterpillar. For example we have, what is called by scientists – “Neural Plasticity”, while caterpillars don’t. Neural Plasticity simply is the elasticity for our biological neural network to create NEW pathways that help create different behaviors and reactions. By making new choices, new Awareness, we Allow a new Momentum.

That’s the great news – We are biologically designed to create and thrive on change! Hence, the whole meaning of Response-Ability!  You have the Ability to Respond how you like. Take Responsibility for the Momentum in Your Life!

Remember that Choices are just Expanded Awareness. Lift your View Point. Expand YOUR awareness.

Be a Choice NOT an effect.
