This little piece of a gem delivered itself to my inbox yesterday morning. As I read it, my lips let out a whisper. Ohhh. And then an overwhelming sense of comfort found me.
It’s only when you make the process your goal that the big dreams can follow ~Oprah
This makes sense to me. I understand.
Right now I’m training for a marathon. Every day my goal is to follow my training plan. I’m following the process. At the end of my marathon training cycle, a finish line will be waiting for me. That big dream of finish a marathon will be there waiting for me. But I have to focus on the process of getting there. The long runs. The strength training. The yoga. I need them all to get to that big dream.
In the process of letting go you will lose many things from the past, but you will find yourself. […] It will be a permanent Self, rooted in awareness and creativity. Once you have captured this, you have captured the world. ~ Deepak Chopra
