Invisible. About the thread that has the power to change you.

Maybe?

What’s invisible for you, might not seem the same thing for somebody else. People come and go. Every person is here to teach us something, to point at something, to show the way… If only we listened.

What is invisible for me, is not invisible for you. That’s why I want to meet you. To explore what our two beings have got in common, or not, and to walk out from the encounter changed. Because this is what matters. This is what this life brings us – an opportunity to grow, to learn from every encounter on our way, because every single person on our way knows something that we don’t. An opportunity to learn. Or not.

Then there is karma – if you don’t learn something, don’t work on something that is invisible, then you would have to do that same thing again. To relive that situation over and over again until you finally listen. Listen to that ‘Psst’ sound of your intuition that is telling you to stop, telling you to make changes, telling you to be. To listen to yourself. And grow. You’ve got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was. (Abraham Lincoln) Yeah? Yeah.

Almost nothing important that ever happens to you happens because you engineer it. Destiny has no beeper; destiny always leans trenchcoated out of an alley with some sort of Psst that you usually can’t even hear because you’re in such a rush to or from something important you’ve tried to engineer.

- David Foster Wallace

Sometimes you don’t even know your potential. You don’t even know you’re capable of transformation. It may come quiet. It may not come at all. Or you may not even see it. Invisible.

Here is my secret. It is very simple. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; What is essential is invisible to the eye.

- The Little Prince

Sometimes you just know something is about to happen. As if all the signs everywhere are pointing to the right direction, then you see the 14:14 numbers everywhere (or something similar that only you would understand), and you know you’re on to something. It’s not about making a decision. It’s about going with the flow.

Life’ s flow can be unexpected. It can be nothing you’ve ever wanted to experience. Yet it may change a lot of patterns that you’ve been repeating and repeating and repeating. You’re never going to control this process. It somehow is going outside of the scope of your rational mind. Some things are just meant to happen.

With the risk of sounding ‘invisible’, and unclear, let me tell you one thing. If you listen to your intuition, over and over again, keep breathing in and out and really listen to that silent voice, you’re gonna experience that invisible thread that is going to lead you on to amazing things that you haven’t even dreamt of. Guaranteed. It only takes one invisible gaze inward. And the journey is on. Enjoy!

How to have an effortless breakthrough by small, regular steps – a little, step-by step guide

medium_4101603579

Here is how small changes, repeated over a period of time, can lead to a breakthrough.

Have you ever wanted to make a change but didn’t know where to start? Is there something you have promised yourself to do but didn’t do it because the process seemed daunting? Here are a few simple ways to help you stay on track by making some almost unnoticeable steps in your schedule that will lead you in the right direction.

It all begins with one single step. Whether you shop for groceries or want to enroll on a three-year course, it begins with one step. The sparkle – the decision – then one step. Or, if you want to make a significant change in your habits – let’s say, be on time to your appointments, finally, even one simple step of going out five minutes earlier than usual, would help.

Every bit helps. Same with your savings – instead of buying something now and stretching your budget, if you just refrained from that one thing you eat out normally, just once a week, and instead prepared yourself a sandwich before you went out, with time you might save enough to get this thing without much effort. With time.

It’s all about progress made in time. Small progress. Because if you want something different, even a little change in your habits is better than no change, right? If you don’t take the steps, things will probably not go into the direction you want. And if you do, you may effortlessly find yourself in the right place.

I’ve found a lot of these kinds of advice in a book called One Small Step Can Change Your Life. The Kaizen Way by Robert Maurer, Ph. D. It explains them in an encouraging way:

Kaizen and innovation are the two major strategies people use to create change. Where innovation demands shocking and radical reform, all kaizen asks is that you take small, comfortable steps toward improvement.

The same applies to getting fit, upgrading your skills, meeting new people, becoming less shy, learning a new language, stepping out of your comfort zone, quitting smoking, finding a job… The areas where you can use that approach are endless. You can probably come up with ten more things you would like to change a little bit. One at a time. If you like, please share them with me.

After all, our ordinary days consist of many little things that we do, which in time sum up into a whole of our experiences that is bigger than the sum of its parts. Even Einstein said that his talent was to be curious enough to check various possibilities and not giving up. And if the world is a matter of vibration, and we are too, why not raise it just a tiny bit and step by step become what we would truly love to be?

The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent upon it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.

- Galileo

Small things matter.

 

And to end, this quote:

If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.

Gail Sheehy
