This may be the most spiritual, metaphysical or holistic post yet. But, it’s what I was thinking so it’ll be what I’m writing. Something that I can’t quite explain to most people is how I have a great hunch, insight or feeling about things. When people think I am planning something out the reason I went with it because it felt right. Now this feeling is not based on anything I read in books or even from any life experiences it’s more of me matching a picture in my mind with a actual place. It’s like I know when I show up if it was right and that’s the reason why I travel to places before I might move there. All I need is a vision match that WASN”T brought on by a fine woman, some alcohol or a business I see and I’ll decide it can be done here.
What others may see from the outside is a plan taking too long is actually me accepting that I am in the right place and it will happen in due time. And, no I don’t meditate but I am usually calm and in reflection everyday for one reason or another. Now this way of going about life hasn’t gained me a lot of respect amongst potential friends but it’s alright I’ve been down this road plenty of times and it always worked. Only my friends who are spiritual for one reason or another tell me it’s faith or some other special insight. For me I just know. The only way I can describe it is when some people fall in love at first sight and it just works. For me it’s similar as I can have a very vivid vision or dream of places I have never been. All of a sudden I am in that place and I know I am supposed to be here. It’s like deja vu but that’s just a vision alone but what about that I am having the same conversation that I had in the vision.
Now I know you think I’m talking crazy but who gives a fvck as you don’t really know me anyway. But, this knowing of things before I get there has always been very helpful. When I was a kid I used to have it a lot but as I got older it disappeared but it has returned ever since I stopped worrying about how I am going to make it. This is why I can change directions, careers, places to live and even give away damn near all my possessions. I know I’ll have them again in a slightly different way so I can let go.
Didn’t want to make this post this long but let me give you the basics of this post. We all know what we should be doing and it’s easy to recognize because you realize your life isn’t going the way you want. There was a time when you saw something great, someone special or a great opportunity that would be 180 from where you look like you were headed. I think that choice to go with the intuition you have is what separates most people from the slaves. I didn’t do anything that special in my head when I got up and left LA but it happened to change my life. I pretty much took every whim of a opportunity that came to me based on a feeling that everything would work out for me eventually. Shit, to make it sound more weird.. When I was in Manhattan I worked downtown and I used to eat Subway on 80th and Broadway because I liked the way that neighborhood looked and would always say I’m going to live here. When the business made money I ended up living on 80th and Amsterdam and I promise you I didn’t even know it til one day I walked the neighborhood and noticed I was one block in from that subway.
Once you stop worrying about how and start going the way you know in some weird way is right I think it’s automatic that you will succeed. I can’t explain how my life has worked for me this far but I always knew it would. Even to this day I continue to know and I don’t let the world or any other person deter me from my vision!
