“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.”
— William Blake
Each moment we live contains our lives in miniature. The same or similar patterns play out in the different aspects of our lives, be it love, career, family or self-development. It is possible to break the patterns, roll the dice and reset ourselves but this tends to be quite difficult for most of us. Of course once we take that degree of responsibility than it is up to us to decide what our new patterns will look like. The more we shape them to follow our truest most authentic self the more successful they will tend to be. First and most importantly tho, we need awareness of what our present patterns are. I have found that a combination of divination or analysis (i.e. tarot, I Ching, or Enneagrams) and meditation work well for this.
Once we have determined our underlying patterns and gain awareness on how they play out in our lives, then we can go about changing them. It helps of course if we have a clear idea of what we want our new patterns to be and a clear intent to make the change. This is both easier and more difficult than it sounds.
