A goal is not the end of the path. It is what bring us near and connects us to it.
Besides, the goal carries many goals within since it is not only to reach that place but also to develop, sustain and totally identify with it.
Maybe at some point, the goal seemed too distant but now it turned into something lasting, sustainable and spontaneous. But be careful, the goal is never safe ground, it might move, break and maybe some day it will not be there.
Our goal today might be to travel and we do travel to a specific place and once there, we see a mountain, we climb that mountain and when we are at the top, we see a star, then, we want to reach the star.
But, how do we do it? Can we travel to the star?
We can dream with her, but that’s all, unless we study Astronomy.
The topic is that the goal can take us to unsuspected paths, thus, the goal is the beginning and never the end. It is the beginning of the adventure of life, but nothing is truly easy, maybe at the beginning when we set the goal but then, effort, even sacrifice come.
It is there, when we ask ourselves if the goal is too distant; and if we did not have the right planning, the goal turns from a dream into a nightmare, and we might not be able to overcome the nightmare.
What’s relevant here is to awaken the intrinsic point of our inner world, who directs and culminates the goals, reaching and making them come true. This is the will, which is the goal of goals by discovering, strengthening, taking care, feeding it, and of course, raising it, making a friendly source out of it for the daily living.
Let’s be and let’s reach all that inside our heart but with the careful dedication of the student and the teacher, since we must have these two components, alive and active.
Great success can be reached in life starting with a central, balanced inner ruling. One of my goals might be to be rich but maybe the method is not right, then that wealth might bring destruction or we might be successful but not only by being rich but in society, in the family.
To reach your goals will depend of how real and firm are your intentions and how good they are. Then, we will measure risk, effort, dedication, determination and many other things. The most we know, the most resources we will have, in order to reach in greatness, all our dreams.
To reach the goal is to awaken from the dream because the goal is to make the dream come true.
