“People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.”
Winnie the Pooh
Revealing words. Bear truths… Straight outta the 1-double-0 acre wood comes the philosophy of our favorite teddy.
Unrivaled is Pooh Bear’s knack for stating something so profoundly simple that we are left with nothing but the simply profound.
Pooh, as he so often does, operates in a fashion that demands we conclude he is delightfully ignorant, or better yet, just a “Silly Old Bear!”…
But friends, perhaps it is we who fast-forward past his simple genius, overlooking his bear smarts. Perhaps we are focusing on the wrong word and Pooh is simply ignoring the right one. Maybe it is us who carelessly hone in on his use of “nothing”, as Winnie casually escapes our emphasis on the “impossible”!?!
So… how do we accomplish the impossible?
Well… if Winnie the Pooh, Yoda, Taoism and Nike all agree on an approach, Just Do It! (per Yoda, there is no try)
‘GOTTA HEAR ITS’!
“You know you’ve made it when your Last Name serves as a noun, an adjective and, especially, a verb!”
“I’ve never considered anything I’ve done impossible — I’ve just never even considered the possibility.”
“Greatness is not a destination. Greatness is a decision.”
Want to tap into a super power you may not even have realized you had within you? Check out Ido’s article above on a tool for intuitive writing! It’s an amazingly powerful, yet amazingly simple, tactic for you to grow any direction you’d like — up, down, inward and outward!
It took me nearly 3 decades to understand how to effectively leverage “intuition”…. 3 decades….
….And considering I was a creative writer/poet from the moment I could write AS WELL AS the fact that I’ve been able to lucid dream since I was a young child — it is that much more amazing that it took me THREE DECADES to first appreciate, learn, and then leverage the creative power of intuition…..
We ALL have it within us, but some of us are further removed from this source than others…. and again, I went nearly THREE DECADES while being about as close as you can get to this source (in the good ‘ol dream-scape of creativity). But like many things, it is hard to appreciate somethings value until it is experienced for ourselves…. (and hey, I didn’t even realize that “lucid dreaming” was somewhat rare for people, or that the concept even had a name, until high-school— and I certainly didn’t realize how certain aspects of life can serve as a tool to hone a gift which exists within us for, amazingly.. AGAIN, THREE DECADES!!)
So if you don’t have the patience to wait for three decades like I did on the hope that eventually “it all clicks” for you one day, but would still like to learn how to tap into the super-person in you —- start with Ido’s article on “tool for developing intuitive writing”!
By taking some time IN THE MORNING and doing “stream of consciousness writing”, you are allowing the intuitive in you to speak, and allowing your conscious mind to listen. Start somewhere and eventually you can go anywhere!!! 😀
You appeared, smack dab in the middle of a story. You appeared right where the plot is at its thickest and yet, amazingly, are ALREADY the main character. Amidst old friends who seem different and new strangers who seem familiar; surrounded by a recognizable landscape you’ve never seen before. You accept it.
Then suddenly, you hear your name being whispered with screeches of cynicism, as your alarm clock reminds you that it was all a dream.
