Just Beyond Yourself
Half a step
and the rest
There is a road
When you see
the two sides
at that far horizon
and deep in
of your own
it’s the road
how you know.
need to be.
This bird is looking out upon this field just beyond itself. You can see the anticipation in his whole body as he gets ready for flight. His legs are taut, wings are swept back, and the tail feathers coiled upwards ready for flight.
Where is that point for you, Just beyond yourself? what does that look like? What is your vision?
There is a little practice you can do.
Take out a piece of paper and write down your goals for this year. Concentrate on one of them and map it out. Where are you now and where is the end goal. Pick the center of those 2 places. To be there (that center point) what needs to happen, label it.
Take 10 minutes and sit with this. Meditate with this midway point in mind. Let your subconscious mind provide you with some answers. Once your 10 minutes are up, write down what popped up. Now you have a place that is just beyond yourself.
I would love to hear some of the things that come out of this excercise, if you are comfortable enter them in the comments
