Emotion knows no time.
Your memories are felt now.
Your dreams are felt now.
Now is the only time emotions are experienced.
So.... Think about the emotional states that you perceive you’ll feel from achieving a goal.
Write them down. One by one. Using one word descriptions.
Then.... fuse with those same emotions in as many ways as possible throughout the day.
You are now consciously becoming your future self, emotionally.
Live from this space, your goals become inevitable. By law, not by luck.
Get interested in your 'self.' Observe the thoughts that appear in your mind.
Not by consciously choosing thoughts that you perceive to be positive or desirable, but simply by watching the thoughts that naturally and spontaneously arise by themselves.
Observe the words that you speak to others.
Observe your actions.
Do all of this non-judgementally. Don't attach any ideas, labels or interpretations of good/bad to anything that you observe.
Simply observe with curiosity.
Don't try to get anything out of this practice, just do it for fun. What needs to be revealed will show itself to you effortlessly.
When you reach the point where you're spending the majority of your time as an observer, begin to focus your attention more on the spaces between the thoughts than on the thoughts themselves. When you listen, focus more on the spaces between the words than the words that you hear. The same for when you speak.
Wherever you are and whatever you're doing, focus your attention more on the physical space than on the objects in the space.
Train your attention to go to the formless more than the form in both the physical and mental realms.
When you're spending the majority of your time as an observer and the majority of your attention is focused on space ask yourself this:
Who am I?

What do you think of? Often we think of the butterfly, as a symbol of beautiful growth, transformation and expansion...
And, “if you were to open the chrysalis halfway through its nympha stage ... emerging from the capsule would not be some hybrid creature, half caterpillar half butterfly, but a puddle of liquid.
((A Puddle of Liquid⁉️))
In order to be able to become a butterfly, the caterpillar has to fall apart completely, decompose down to its very essence, devoid of any shape or consciousness.
And from this liquid essence, the butterfly starts to put itself together, from scratch.
We sometimes say we want life to change, but we don’t, really.
For in order for life to change, we need to change ourselves. But to live through a metamorphosis such as we claim we crave, we have to surrender everything.
That’s why the image of the butterfly is so pertinent as a symbol of change. It has nothing to do with a cosy nap inside a soft time capsule, followed by the fluttering of delicate wings.
It’s about surrendering yourself to the darkness, dying and disintegrating until there is nothing — nothing whatsoever — left of you. Only then can your soul put itself back together again.
All too often, when we say we want to change, we conveniently forget about that and instead in our heads we to jump straight to the part where we emerge transformed.
Unfortunately, there can be no resurrection” and no rebirth unless you first die to the old self.
This is true transformation.
You see, we often want the biggest awakening with little commitment.
We want the most change with no effort. This my dear friends is impossible.
To transform into a butterfly 🦋
The caterpillar 🐛
has to fall apart completely,
decompose down to its
very essence... And from this essence, you as the butterfly can begin to put yourself together, from scratch.
I am here, in the rebuilding. This is my soul putting itself back together again from scratch.
Awaiting the breaking open of the cocoon.
Stay tuned... to be continued
Soon comes the emergence.
