Born. Get your vehicle. Open your instruction manual. It is blank.
No operating suggestions. No itinerary. No GPS.
Uncertain, we cry. Comfort comes. Write down that algorithm. Your book is begun. Hunger? Eat. Thirsty? Drink. Write it down. Continue that plan.
Each day is about recording strategies to negotiate future events.
Are there ever personal revisions of your book? Or are you too scared to ask the ‘right’ questions? Is even drifting outside the boundaries of the ‘known you’ something you have never approved or welcomed?
The answer may come down to the value you place on the self you have created and the perspective from which you view your fundamental values.
Your ‘book’ determines the importance of your words. If you picture yourself at the bottom, your self-suggestions will have little meaning or power.
Is it time to ascend to a mountain top and re-consider your manual?
