Making decisions for an unknown future is like the bizarre experience of jumping off an airplane:
*There is no logic to it whatsoever.
*You have no idea how it's gonna go.
*Fear is along the ride, whether you plan for its arrival, or not.
Bottom line is, I have no idea what I'm doing most of the time (or, all the time?), and I believe this applies to most of us. But we roll with it. We make our decisions, plan our plans, dream our dreams, and hope for the best.
Covid era, stripping off the illusion of 'knowing how the future will go', can connect us to what we really want. So as I am scrolling through listings of potential new homes to live in, I realize I have a desire to live surrounded by nature, in a community of like minded friends. A commune of mobile homes in Malibu? A kibbutz in Topanga?? No idea. But in the spirit of being a hippie, I'm gonna roll with it and see where it takes me.
Consider this my first step at manifesting my desire.
What would the next step be?
