10. The instinctive wants of the animal and the intellectual wants of Cuvier, the wants of nature and of the mind of Leverrier were alike, and thus the results; here the thoughts of an existence, there an existence. A well-defined lawful want, therefore, furnishes the reason for the more complex operations of nature.
11. Having recorded correctly the answers furnished by nature and stretched our senses with the growing science over her surface; having joined hands with the levers that move the earth; we become conscious of such a close, varied and deep contact with the world without, that our wants and purposes become no less identified with the harmonious operations of this vast organization, than the life, liberty, and happiness of the citizen is identified with the existence of his government.
Charles Haanel, “The Master Key System”, Part XI
Reading this chapter again for the second year in a row I made a connection to a scene from “What the Bl**p do we know?” I recently revisited:
Could it really be that simple?
Consciously choosing to give our attention to the life we want to create and insisting on achieving the outcome brings that dream of ours into reality instead of any of all the other infinite possibilities.
Does it work that way with our lives as well as with the particles of quantum physics?
Well I certainly know that I get hints in that direction in my own life all the time, since I decided to write my book on hiking outside of cell and mobile internet coverage I´m put into those scenarios all the time.
Right now I´m in Basel, Switzerland, visiting my brother and his family and asking what I should see on my own both him and his wife immediately recommended Rheingoldswill Wasserfallen, a recreational area just 30 minutes from central Basel.
I ended up spending almost six hours there, hiking over four of them and most of that time being off the grid – amazing!
Had a nice SIT and opened my eyes to this view:
Watched out over this valley during my second read of the day:
And, the area proving to be pretty quite this time of the year, I spent enough time in silence and solitude to create a detailed plan of action for the next 5 months including things I can do to prepare for my 90-day-run early 2016!
Summing it up time spent in nature and silence has proved very well invested for me and I´m so grateful for having the opportunity to enjoy it often!
