From A to B And All Points In Between

Airplane

I had some business to tend to out of town the other day, so I took a trip on an airplane.  I have traveled quite a bit over the years for business, and I have done a little for pleasure as well.  I enjoy it for the most part, although it usually leaves me a little tired and weary at the end of the day.

It did occur to me though, that one of the coolest parts about traveling is how you can start the day, for example, having breakfast in New York City and end the day with your head on your pillow, home sweet home, somewhere in California.  You can be in two totally different places, with different cultures, different weather, different everything…and you can do it in the course of just a few hours.

I started thinking of how our minds and our emotions really work the same way.  We can go from one place to another much quicker than we can travel on an airplane.  In fact, in just a matter of seconds we can go from happy to sad, or content to mad, peaceful to scared, or any other combination of totally different attitudes that you can think of.  And the thing about our minds is, that we have complete control over the process.  Sometimes I think we forget that we have control, and we just sort of sit back much like on an airplane and wait until we reach our destination.  Think about it, when we’re on an airplane, all of our faith is in someone else to take us where we want to go.  It kind of sounds helpless, doesn’t it?

Well, we are the pilots and navigators of our own minds.  And we can take our own journey anywhere we want it to go.  We can change course as many times as we want, and we don’t have to land until or unless we feel like it.  We also have an unlimited fuel source, called our imagination.  Our belief and faith can be in ourselves.  We only need to be conscious of this ability in order to put it into motion.

Much like a business trip, we can begin planning where we would like to go, and put together our own little mental itinerary, if you will.  If we can stick to it, then we can get ourselves anywhere we want to go in our minds.  This is a really big step toward beginning to achieve all kinds of things in your life.  You must first be able to “go there in the mind”.

So tonight before you drift off to sleep, book a one way trip to happiness for tomorrow morning.  When you wake up, get yourself ready and get on board.  Just make sure that when you get there, you stay for a while.  It will be one of the best trips you take all year.  And the great thing is you can travel every day.  You can fly from happiness to contentment, and from there on to joy.  Wherever you want to go, you can get there, if you just decide to do it.

Albert Einstein said that “Logic will take you from A to B, but imagination will take you everywhere”.  I love that quote.

“Final boarding call…”
