When I became aware of Leonard Mlodinow’s book The Fragility of Grand Discoveries, which makes the case for randomness’ role in science, it started me thinking. Books will do that! I wondered about making use of randomness in this teeny-tiny-little experiment called my life and what discoveries might be laying in wait for little ‘ol me?
If random occurrences happen and if I have an over arching intention for my life, can I then make use of randomness while thriving in the ordinariness of my everyday?
Can I declare my life will be lived in JOY and with EASE and make it stick by living simply and allowing my current daily schedule a little room to stretch and breath between regular tasks of that living?
Can I be so bold as to engage in – say a 10 minute exercise – imagining – say twice daily – what that life would look and feel like? And then can I just let it go? And in letting it go can I then give up striving to achieve it?
Would this experiment in creating a mental equivalent of my best possible life make more familiar to me what those things felt like so that when they randomly occurred I would then be more apt to recognize them?
And upon recognizing them – my visions turned in to my actual experience – might this not give me confidence to engage in more imagining, more letting go and even more manifesting?
And could all this “better world thinking” be done while just doing the dishes, taking the dog for a walk, making the kid’s lunches or simply preparing to sleep at night?
Can I start this practice from right where I am now? Am I really this powerful?
The answer is YES to everything – in case you haven’t arrived there already. So…what’s standing in your way? You got the goods – the yearning or longing for that which makes you happy. Begin imagining today what that looks like and how it feels to be in that place. Then let it go. Now you can be confident you have done all the work necessary to assist randomness in doing it’s job!
When can you start?
