“Where are you?”
“What are you doing?”
“I’m worried because I haven’t heard from you in a couple weeks.”
These are the comments I’ve recently received from regular readers of my emails.
Here’s my answer: I’m on a top secret mission. You might even call it a Vision Quest – only there’s no wrestling in this one.
Truth is I’m working on creating a result in my life that requires monumental focus and concentration. So much so that aside from the rigorous training I’m undergoing on a daily basis – all I want to do when I’m finished is stare at the walls or look out the windows. Not moving. Not doing anything.
Just looking, taking it in … and breathing.
It may be hard for you to fathom, but the Fure-cat can sit and stare straight ahead for long periods of time … and oddly enough, he’s happy when doing so.
He gains inner strength and power when he doesn’t appear to be doing anything but sitting… or standing… and focuses on nothing but breathing.
How can this be?
Long ago I read about the WAY of cats, wild or domestic. I was amazed when I read that your average cat spends the majority of its day meditating.
Just sitting. Looking straight ahead. Breathing. Doing nothing.
But when it’s time to hunt… look out. In spite of a cat’s so-called laziness, it still remains the greatest hunter that ever lived.
Not only that, but the cat is so relaxed and calm that if you toss it out of a high-rise, it’ll land safely on the ground with no injuries.
So this is confirmation that you can gain great power from stillness. As well as from physical, mental and spiritual relaxation.
Keep in mind that stillness often precedes an explosion. It’s true in the animal kingdom. It’s true with human beings as well.
Be still, gather your energy, resources and power – and watch as you have more juice to get what you want done, when you want it done.
It’s not often that I go a couple weeks without writing an email, a column, an article – or something that gets published. In the past, doing such a thing was unthinkable. But I assure you I’ve truly enjoyed not writing anything each day other than notes in my journal to track my progress.
Take a few minutes today to gather your resources. Sit in perfect stillness. No talking. No fidgeting. No moving. No reading. No TV and no radio. Oh, and no cell phone or any other device.
Just sit and watch your breathing.
Relax your body from head to toe as you do so.
Feel the energy build.
Then go hunting.
P.S. Want to go to the NEXT LEVEL in your career? Feel like you’re missing the creative oomph, power or ideas to do so? Well, get ready my friend, because something BIG is going to take place soon. More details forthcoming.
