Just Beyond Yourself

Just Beyond Yourself

Just beyond

It’s where
you need
to be.

Half a step
and the rest
by what
you’ll meet.

There is a road
always beckoning.

When you see
the two sides
of it
closing together
at that far horizon
and deep in
the foundations
of your own
at exactly
the same
that’s how
you know
it’s the road
to follow.

That’s how
you know
it’s where
to go.

That’s how
you know
you have
to go.

how you know.

Just beyond
where you
need to be.

~David Whyte

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

I can't hear you?
