This morning I have been speculating a little on fate and potential. And it seems to be that the key to unlocking potential lies in what we attach significance to. It is very easy to overlook the seemingly insignificant and discount or disregard it. Amongst the set of things seemingly insignificant there are things of minor significance. But on occasion we may miss an important key. Something may catch our attention, we look at it in a cursory manner and then turn to something else. For a second, we may have some doubt and then go; “nah, it isn’t important”. We make a choice, a decision even, about what we attach significance to.
The potential we manifest in a large part depends upon that which we attach significance to. I could say, “where the thought goes, energy flows.”
Because we live in hectic, pressured times, it is more likely now than before that we may miss some of these keys. And in our missing of them manifest an entire different potential than that which, at least temporarily, was available to us. From the set of available potentials, we are most likely to select what appears to be the low hanging fruit, so to speak.
But that missing of a key in itself can manifest. Where there was space for the manifestation of the missed-key potential something else has to grow. It is only with retrospect that we may notice that we missed the key, because we deemed it insignificant.
Having cued this up:
Have I ever deemed something insignificant only for it to turn out to be highly significant?
Do I take care about that which I attach significance to?
Or am I always on the look out for low hanging fruit?
