Sometimes I sat at the kitchen table with Bryce’s dad, who seemed eager to talk with me about the future in general. This is a log of a conversation we had online….
yes, he wrote it in all caps.
In reference to all aspects of your journey:
THE JOURNEY IS WHAT YOU COMMAND OF IT. SO IF IT IS TO HELL YOU SEEK, YOU SHALL FIND IT.
“Some goals are just intangible. I admit, it has filled me with doubt.”
THAT IS BECAUSE YOU DONT YET BELIEVE THAT IT REALLY EXISTS. IT IS A DREAM – A WANT – A DESIRE, BUT NOT SOMETHING YOU BELIEVE ACTUALLY IS.
IF YOU HAVE THE ABLITY TO UNDERSTAND THAT SOMETHING HAS BEEN GIVEN TO YOU THEN YOU HAVE THE ABLITY TO REJECT IT. ONCE YOU REALIZE THAT, IT IS YOU WHO MAKES THE CHOICE, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN GOOD.
WHEN MAKING A CHOICE FOR YOUR OWN GOOD MAKE SURE THAT YOU TRULY WANT THIS TO BE PART OF YOUR LIFE. ULTIMATLY IT IS YOU WHO MUST BARE THE FRUITS OF YOUR LIFE. THE LESSONS YOU LEARN ARE THE ONES YOU CHOOSE, AND THE PATH YOU SELECT IS YOUR OWN.
ADVICE IS SOMETHING I TRY NOT TO GIVE. I ATTEMPT TO GIVE AN IDEA -AN OPTION FOR YOU TO CONSIDER. IF YOU WOULD, “A WAY TO ACCEPT THAT YOU ARE IN CONTROL OF YOU”. YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO CHOOSE FOR ANYONE ELSE BUT YOURSELF. IT IS MY BELIEF THAT THE CHOICES YOU MAKE ARE BASED ON WHAT YOU BELIVE TO BE TRUE FOR YOU. NOT WHAT YOU WANT OR WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE, BUT WHAT YOU BELIEVE.
FAITH IS NOT THE BELIEF IN THE UNSEEN. IF YOU HAVE FAITH – A BELIEF THAT YOU ARE GOING TO GRADUATE FROM SCHOOL AND THEN YOU DO, IS THAT NOT SOMETHING THAT IS TANGABLE? IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE GOING TO GOING TO GET A JOB AND THEN GET ONE, IS THAT NOT REAL? THE DIFFERENCE IS, ONCE YOU BELIVE THAT YOU ARE GOING TO MANIFEST SOMETHING THEN YOU BEGIN TO WORK TOWARDS IT. IF YOU ONLY WANT IT AND DON’T BELIVE THAT IT IS POSSIBLE FOR WHATEVER REASON, THEN YOU WILL NEVER MANIFEST IT. LIFE PROVIDES WHAT YOU ASK OF IT – NOT WHAT YOU WANT FROM IT.
“So you are insisting that if I go looking for Paradise, that it will appear.”
I AM SAYING THAT IT ALREADY IS. TRY THIS: MAKE AN OUTLINE OF SOMETHING THAT YOU WOULD LIKE – A CAR, AN OUTFIT, A PLACE TO LIVE. ONCE YOU HAVE IDENTIFIED IT YOUR MIND’S EYE WILL BEGIN TO SEEK IT OUT AND COMPARE EVERY SIMILIAR OBJECT TO IT UNTIL IT FINDS THE CORRECT IMAGE OR UNTIL YOU MAKE AN ADJUSTMENT TO FIT SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE DECIDED IS BETTER.
THE POWER TO CREATE IS YOURS.
Some two years later, after claiming he had the perfect marriage and used the above mindframe to reach his goals, he would come out of the closest and leave his wife.
