Your personal vision

Your personal vision

by Jon Rappoport

April 19, 2017

This isn’t about whether you need glasses. It’s about having a vision of the future. The future you want.

The future is composed of time starting one second from now—if you want it to. Or it could start tomorrow. Or next week. Or five years from now. Or never.

An extremely pointed and useful question is: what do you really want to do?

An answer to that begins to give birth to a vision.

But suppose the answer is: play music.

Does that mean you have to come up with a five-year plan right away? Does that mean you have to map out some sort of business structure immediately? Or could it simply mean YOU WANT TO PLAY MUSIC?

If that’s what it means, then start playing. Now.

Why not? It’s what you want to do.

And then, as you keep playing in the days and weeks ahead, think about the ways you could play music. Alone. With a small group. With an orchestra. What do you want?

It turns out you put together the future in pieces. You add pieces. Then, at some point, you see enough to fill in details and look at something long range. Maybe.

Or you could be one of those people who, five minutes after starting to play music, rushes to the computer and builds an architecture for the next 20 years of your life.

Different people operate in different ways.

There is no ironclad system legislated by the universe.

But you need to do something you want to do; in this case, play music.

If you don’t, you float and drift and percolate and ruminate and end up chewing cud.

Not doing something becomes a drug, and the addiction creeps in.

People are always doing something, but they aren’t usually doing what they really want to do.

Then there are people who are doing what they want to do, but they stop. Why?

For various reasons. One of those reasons is: they do enough of what they want to do, for a week, a month, a year, five years, and then they reach the end. After that, they don’t feel the impulse to keep doing it. The magic goes away. They aren’t interested anymore. It turns out they wanted to eat a fabulous meal for eight years, and then they were finished with the meal, and it was time to get up from the table.

That can happen.

All of the above is a prelude to me saying: imagination isn’t like this. It never runs out. It doesn’t need a plan. It doesn’t need a conclusion. Imagination is what you haven’t thought of yet. Imagination is the idea you haven’t come across yet. Imagination is more than having a vision. Imagination can enhance a vision and spread it out into previously unseen realms. Imagination is about the possible and the impossible and beyond. Once you really start exercising your imagination in numerous ways, you’re going to come across unexplored lands, and you’re going to feel new energy and inspiration. Who knows what you’ll do then? Whatever it is, when it becomes too familiar, imagination will be waiting for you and you can start the next episode.

If you’re looking for magic, there it is.

    Experiential learning is an adventure. Playing music, performance of any kind, teaching yourself how to build or fix something, how to be a good salesman, whatever – you just take that first step, then start navigating as you go, as you learn. Impossible to plan years in advance. But you have to trust yourself that you will learn to know what you do not know as you go, and head in that direction. Be dedicated to uncovering what you do not know. “Imagination is what you haven’t thought of yet.”

    So many people get stuck in the paralysis of analysis. They have to think of everything in advance. There’s no adventure in that, and you will never uncover what you do not know. It takes humility to admit you don’t know everything up front, but it also takes audacity to start out toward a goal with that admission.

  2. I came here because of the guest article you wrote for Waking Times: the title “The Free and Independent Individual.. it was very encouraging what you wrote which is why I forwarded it to my daughter in hopes that she will read it.. and I also decided to share my comments of that article here because this article is very relevant as well.. thank you
    Really enjoyed this article, it is very relevant to my daughter’s life at the moment.. she is having to battle with the Family Court System which if you watch the documentary “Divorce Corp” on Netflix.. it will give you a clearer understanding of what I am about to say… Family Court system somehow got away from having to be accountable to the Constitution and practices law ARBITRATRILY … as in they exercise totalitarianism as their modus operandi … If in the end my daughter is NOT allowed to leave the state of Maryland to pursue her right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but made to stay away from her family, her support system; because Family Court believes that the baby’s drug addict father has the right to visit the baby; which please understand was never denied by my daughter, she just wants to go home where she can be surrounded by her family and friends… have a better income and go back to school (she’s a nurse) improve her quality of life and thus the baby’s .. SO if her life is placed on HOLD like this article states.. even against all odds she has the freedom to Launch herself into a good life should she choose that, not easy but it can be done… which is why I sent the article to her… and I too can do the same, in that I will have to develop a new plan on how to enjoy my golden years as I give up my home and life in Houston to help my daughter here in Maryland… It would be wonderful if Jon R. would look into this … it really needs looking into. thank you
