Mastering

We are conditioned by an achievement-based and goal-orientated society to be focusing on the future and the arrival at the end, with no time for the steps in between, we do not want to be where we are, we want to be at the moment of mastering.

Mastering something is all about patience, focus, being in the moment and enjoying each of the steps. It is about now and wanting to be where we are at this moment. We can only ever do something now in this moment and the joy of doing leads to the mastering.

It is not about the goal itself.

Life is the means, not the end.

Lastly, I have just updated my art gallery page, a selection of work over the last 6 years from beginner to enjoying the daily journey. If you have a moment take a look here The Art of Change

Thinking equals more thought

The more we think about how to achieve something the less we achieve.

Doing is a result of conscious focus, awareness and allowing the joy of whatever you are doing to flow through you.

No longer seeing all that we are doing as just a means to an end brings total focus and quality to the moment that we are actually doing something, which is always now.

Otherwise, the mind is possessing us with the thought of the goal and doing becomes secondary, or the doing doesn’t even occur, as we are paralysed by the psychological fear of the goal and what we have to do and how we might succeed, or more commonly, fail.

Thinking equals more thought and conscious awareness and focus allow us to do, right now.
