Life is kinda like a movie, or a video game, or a graphic novel, all of them you are watching, reading, playing them not solely for the outcome but for the enjoyment of its unfolding. It doesn't get any simpler than that really does it? So play the game of life, read the story of life, watch the movie of life. Fashion your life through exciting ideas and act on them with the passion they imbue in you.
If it were really all about the outcome then someone telling you how a movie ended would be enough. Or watching the last five minutes of a movie or a video game would satisfy. Reading merely the first and last chapter of the book would be enough. But where's the fun in that?
Perhaps why we at times don't see the meaning of life being Joy in the Moment is because we've lost touch with Joy in the Moment? Perhaps we are taking everything waaaay too seriously and are overly attached to outcome being what satisfies vs. the journey itself?
Check out this formula.
Intense Desire + Belief = Excitement + Involvement = Exciting outcome
The exciting outcome is the driving force, but it will only compel us to enjoyable action if we believe it is possible. When I got into bodybuilding at first my motive was to be more desirable to girls, eventually this turned into a vision of myself as the best physique in the world. I got bodybuilding magazines and so many guys were bulking up that it began to feel normal and so I Believed I could too. This turned into another motive, the praise I received at French Creek gave me incentive to come back the next year even stronger, this is a critical point right here. Because I had a clear timeline and a clear outcome and I was inspired big time! I had twelve months to impress the kids again. So that image was imprinted in my mind, or them oohing and Ahhing and of course by this time I knew I could achieve it.
I've had successes and I've had "failures" But what I've noticed VERY CLEARLY about those failures is that it was the point at which something happened that severed my BELIEF in it that severed it from my reality (My first attempt at publishing the Wondabubba book is an example, my conviction was not strong enough to move past the slow start so I lost belief which killed any reason to be excited.) So believing in your outcome is as important as knowing what it is you TRULY want. Again this creates excitement and joy in the journey. Faith is another word that can be used in place of belief, or Trust, or Knowing. All of these are an inner grasp of the reality as being your chosen destiny. A vibrational unity with it.
Point of Recognition & Choice -------------------------- Exciting Journey of Knowing -------------------------------Exciting Outcome!
I learned Ragtime on piano once I believed it was possible, I'd been wanting to know how to play it for years but it took a video titled "Learn any skill in only 20 hours" to create in me the belief I needed to go for it. So here's the key, Recognize your True desires, even if you aren't excited about them,, remember you are not excited because so far you don't believe you can have them. Then call to the universe to bring you everything you need to truly Believe in the possibility! This is I believe why Abraham has created a thing called Focus Wheels. The center is the desire, the sections around it are statements that bring you into the vibrational vicinity of the desire so that it begins to feel more and more possible. You are creating a belief in it which gets you excited and literally MAKES it a possibility! So all ya got to do is KNOW you want it and want to believe it is possible and then make an effective focus wheel! Look it up!
All things creative.
