Do Something to Begin
Even if you do not know how you will accomplish your goal, set an intention to go on a specific journey. Write out your intention and place it somewhere that you will see it every day. Then write a postcard from your destination to a friend back home telling them what a wonderful time you are having. Fill it with detail and really feel the sense of being on your great adventure.
For most of us, a big step like an international trip, is a growth producing event long before the actual trip. So it is with putting down a deposit. It starts the growth, the faith, the anticipation, and the excitement, well in advance of the trip. Send in your deposit in some ceremonial way like writing an affirmation on the check, or taking a picture of your on-line deposit. Know you are beginning your adventure and who knows what unexpected blessings are in store?
W. H. Murray had an unexpected blessing in a very surprising
way. He was captured in World War II in Africa by a German officer. Here is what happened in Murray’s own words:
To my astonishment, he [the German tank commander] forced a wry smile and asked in English, 'Aren't you feeling the cold?' ... I replied 'cold as a mountain top'. He looked at me, and his eyes brightened. 'Do you mean – you climb mountains?' He was a mountaineer. We both relaxed. He stuffed his gun away. After a few quick words – the Alps, Scotland, rock and ice – he could not do enough for me.
Know that fulfilling your desires expands all life in the universe!
