there’s always deeper

 

‘The will is the discipline of the heart and the soul.  The will is the one thing we control, completely, always.’*

‘Focus on the real problem, not the first problem.’**

You can try fixing the things on the surface.

Beyond the obvious there is an epic journey of discovery that will develop some beautiful things in you and will sort out many of the surface things on the way.

You are going deeper when you notice there’s more to who we are and what you have.  Notice how your energy is higher when it comes to doing some things over others.  Now there’s a sharpness appearing.  When you begin to experiment with these things – some way of thinking, or relating, or actioning, or a combination of two or three of these – you are created a diamond bit for going deeper.

It’s not easy but with what we now know about talents and passions, and the resources available to us which never were before, much more is possible.  It’s one of the more hidden human advancements.
