What is it you are going through?
Is IT a doorway? A window of opportunity? Maybe a windstorm. Whatever IT is, it’s important to go through it.
Could we go around IT? Learn to go above it, maybe below it? Sometimes we try. Now the question of, does it work? That is to do anything other than go through IT?
When we physically go through a door what happens? I would say we get either outside of or inside of a structure. What happens next? I guess we would then go about our business of choice.
When we mentally go through an IT, what happens next? We may make the decision to go around it because we cannot figure out how to go through it, IT brings fear. We could go above it? Deciding we have dealt with this IT before. What about trying to go under? How does that happen? I think that would simply be to ignore what the IT is we are trying to understand.
So what happens when we just go through it?
There is no pretending we could even think we know. Knowing is expectation. Knowing could be preconceived goals, knowing could even be fooling ourselves into thinking any of the above sentences. Going through anything is unknown. Walking into a house, through a door or window. We could be slammed by it if the wind blows, embraced by a child happy to see us unexpectedly. The same goes with most of the ideas we have, included in our sub conscious. But what would we do if we challenged ourselves to not know, expect or past experience it?
Going through IT is an adventure of many new choices. Challenges will come along but if we have no knowledge of an outcome, well they are truly something to revel in. Going through something with the full understanding of patience, compassion and love can bring about better conclusions than going around IT, above IT or below IT.
I’ve decided that going through is the best possibility for growth, like a porthole into another universe. IT will bring us both pleasure and pain, fear and love and the best is a belief in ourselves that we have never understood before.
Alice went through the looking glass, the rabbit went down the rabbit hole, now we have the opportunity to do the same. What is your choice of going through IT?
Get at IT and get IT done.
