6. A Space to Spark

How do you close the gap between the reality you are living in now and the life you want for yourself in the future? Let’s say you feel that life you are living right now is not the one you want to live. You could do and be so much more, and you know this. However, somehow things just never seem to change much for you.

Does this sound familiar? Are you, or someone you are close to, trapped in an unwanted life, feeling stuck and unable to move? Here is a suggestion for moving forward. Why don’t you try imagining the future you want for yourself? Imagine it so vividly and specifically that you can actually see it. Then, take it even further. Hear it, taste it, feel it, walk around in it! Make it like a movie, starring you.

If you’ve done a good job imagining this future, when you come back to reality, you will be aware of a gap between where you are now and where you want to be. You may feel a bit uncomfortable, but this is good! You see, it is this gap that releases your energy and creativity. Did you know that gas-powered automobiles only move because they have a gap in the spark plug? There has to be room – a space – for the spark to ignite. The same goes for you, for all of us.

For us humans, that space between the way things are and the way we want them to be is the very same space where our drive, energy and creativity have room to ignite. It is the drive and energy that are required to close the gap. Without a vision, a vivid picture of the future you want in your mind, there is no gap. There is no gap, no space, for you to discover your own power.

First, try creating a vision. Then, work at strengthening it every day. Watch what happens when you create a little space for that spark to ignite. ~The Pacific Institute

8. I Hear America Singing

By Walt Whitman 1819-1892

I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,
Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong,
The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,
The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work,
The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck,
The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing as he stands,
The wood-cutter’s song, the ploughboy’s on his way in the morning, or at noon intermission or at sundown,
The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work, or of the girl sewing or washing,
Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,
The day what belongs to the day—at night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly,
Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.
