Meditation, Thursdays & Manifesting
But invariably, the anticipation of the “great Friday” turned out to be more exciting than the actual Friday itself. In my mind it was going to be so exciting! My imagination was usually more brilliant than reality and I was often let down or disappointed by the lackluster event.
That’s when I realized that the feeling of anticipation and planning on Thursday was often more fun and exciting than any Friday could ever be. That’s how Thursday came to be my favorite day of the week.
Now that I’m long past making exciting Friday plans and haven’t worked a traditional work week in many years, I still find that I enjoy looking forward to and planning things. Who doesn’t? It seems like it’s a natural thing.
However, as I move deeper into my spiritual practice, I’ve started questioning so many things that I thought were normal. Lately I’ve been working on “being in the now” and I realized something profound this morning.
As I was being in my “now” moment during meditation this morning I noticed that my “now” moments were like my Thursdays of years prior. I caught myself envisioning what I wanted my life to be like in the future and wondered if that still counted as “being in the now”. I thought about this for some time.
It seems to reason that if you think of the future as a hope to escape the present, then you are resisting the now. However, if you don’t mind the now, and also enjoy the visions you create about the future without being tied to any specific outcome it seems like you are enjoying your now moment.
So make wondrous dreams in your mind. But remember, it doesn’t matter if the dreams come true, as long as you enjoy the dreaming. Because when you let go of the outcome and just enjoy the dream, you open the door to the magic of manifestation.
Life really is about the journey, not the destination.
