...Being "In The Zone", As They Say, Helps You Reach Your Outcome

- Visualize the time when we were in there; yes, in the womb. You don't remember those moments, do you? I don't, either. But no harm in visualizing the time nevertheless. So let's visualize that we are in the womb. Properly fed, nourished and well looked after all 24X7. For all we care, this is the world as we know it. However, in the past few hours, there is this sensation that something is pushing us. Some squeeze happening… ouch! What was that? Why are we being turned upside down, left to right, as if being aligned across some axis, by some invisible, gentle but firm hands? And ...whoa! Now why are we being pushed like this? Why is there so much movement all of a sudden... Momma, it is scary! This slide through the narrow tract... oh, what is happening to me? Why is it happening to me? Oh what have I done? However, there is a strange feeling of surrender in this helplessness. A feeling that the end result will be good. Never mind that our faculty of focusing on the end outcome is undeveloped. And never mind that - at that point of time at least - we ourselves do not know what an end outcome we should be desiring for ourselves.
