My morning meditation yielded something wonderful, yet wholly unexpected. I realized that creating the life you want is in fact about focus. But it’s not about the intense kind of focus. It’s about passive focus.
The Coincidence of Passive Focus
Passive focus is how coincidences happen. You know, you’re thinking about an old friend or acquaintance and they call soon after. Passive focus is also how we create coincidences we don’t want either. And by this I mean, being so focussed on preventing something that we get more of the something we don’t want. This is simply because while our hyper focus is on prevention, our “passive focus” is on the something we don’t want.
Thought leaders on the topic of consciously creating the life you want to experience would call this “non-attachment.” My codependent self has always struggled with that idea. But passive focus somehow seems easier to me.
This is why morning thoughts are so important. What you say to yourself as you begin to wake up gets forgotten as the day moves on and you become distracted with your life experiences. But those thoughts and words have seeped into your mind. They have become your passive focus. They have become non-attachment. And they are becoming coincidences you just can’t explain.
