Brick by Brick
If there is something that you want to do in your life, invariably that will demand that you do so many things that you don’t want to do. See now, all I want to do is fly, but I have to do a lot of math. So what I avoided all my life, now I have to sit down and do it because I want to do what I want to do. This is so with everything.
People think of freedom, but to bring freedom you will have to build a police force, build prisons, you will have to shore up the walls around you, build fences, fix boundaries to become free. Now, all you want to do is sit and meditate, but then you have to build a meditation hall, then you have to build a place to sleep, then you have to build so many things. This is a process of facilitation. How much you want to facilitate – the more it is, the more you will start doing many, many things you don’t want to do. Unless what you want really matters to you, you will not have the energy or the inclination to do what you don’t want to do.
Nothing worthwhile in your life happens with fancifulness, it needs to be built brick by brick. Only then it works and it stays.
The Federal Aviation Authority test, which one normally takes 4-5 months to prepare, have been trying to complete in the past 5 days and am already hitting 90% in the mock tests. Managing even the math with a little bit of help. Tomorrow is the written part of the test. Considering the weather forecast, looks like I’ll be completing the cross-country part of the test only on my next trip. Traveling to New Jersey on Friday and then Toronto for Shambhavi programs and then onto India.
