Think and Grow Rich: A Practical and Comprehensive Interpretation.
Think and Grow Rich: Part 2 – Desire
(part 4 of 4)
We continue with what we do so naturally in the first place...
We use our imagination – the fifth principle of success!
As we mentioned before, we are so deep within our thought process that we start seeing ourselves as the unstoppable main character in these ideal scenarios that is engaging and surfacing our emotions during the process with our imagination.
We have identified that we have a desire within us – ‘something’ that wants to express itself and exist within our reality.
So... how do we start expressing this ‘something’ if we aren’t quite sure how to make sense of it yet? Where we aren’t yet able to justify the reasons why we should venture into it because it seems illogical at this moment in time and extremely scary to move forward into the unknown.
We’ve briefly established that we have this sixth sense that is trying to guide us and if we have a belief system that includes a God in whom we are made, then we can assume it’s the voice of our God trying to guide us to the best possible “path”.
However we, as humans who have been brought up to understand our environment/ reality with our five sensors, can’t seem to be convinced that this 'feeling'/sixth sense is sufficient enough to place our entire future on. We don’t trust it or haven’t learned to trust it enough to aid in our decision-making process.
This sixth sense is beyond our five sensors and is extremely difficult to determine the outcome/results of this 'feeling' that is trying to guide us from within.
We are trained to be guided by things that are outside of us by using our five sensors to deliver the information to us. We are able to justify tangible things like witnessing the news or studying an academic textbook that is based on facts and proven results because it eliminates the unknown for us. We’re able to witness all these facts and results through at least one of our five senses.
Yet, this sixth sense has no textbook/ guide or tangible substance that can stimulate our five sensors – again, it is beyond our five senses.
If our five sensors aren’t able to make sense of it to relay information to us then what are we left with?
What devices can we use to make sense of this sixth sense?
We build the little ounce of desire with our imagination into something so strong that we reach a point of actually wanting to pursue its existence in our lives.
