Currie's Gratitude 19 September 2013

Don't believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding, find out what you already know, and you'll see the way to fly. [Richard Bach] 

I think it would BE amazing to BE able to fly. And yet, who is to say I canNOT DO so already?! I limit myself in so many ways, without realising it; I may very well BE DOing so Right Here and Right Now.

I know that what I know [or think I know] limits me in myriad ways. This is brought home to me daily. What I DO Now, intentionally, is to affirm that I DO NOT KNOW. That I am only guessing, assuming, or relying upon what I have BElieved or been told.

He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying. [Friedrich Nietzsche] 

I am always amazed to learn about animals who are born walking or standing… It gives me great comfort to know NOT ONE of us was born walking. Or able to stand. Yet if we are willing to learn, to grow into our capabilities little by slowly, just imagine where we might soar and what we might DO…

This is what I’m thinking… 

I love you, Currie

like flying in my dreams! I've flown on planes a couple of times and that was fun, but flying in my dreams has improved greatly since I figured out how to land. ;)
