“GONE FISHING, AGAIN
Curving back upon My own Nature,
I create again and again.
BHAGAVAD – GITA
When you finish a project, there’s a good feeling to it, but there’s something of a vacuum, too. You’ve been putting all your attention on that, and then it’s done.
It’s like fishing. You caught a beautiful fish yesterday, and you’re out today with the same bait, and you’re wondering if you’re going to catch another. But if you carry on the analogy of fishing, sometimes, even if you sit with lots and lots of patience, no fish come. You’re in the wrong area. And so maybe you reel in the hook, get the paddle, and move to another place. That means you leave the chair where you’re daydreaming or you move on to another thing. Just by changing something, the desire often gets fulfilled.
It doesn’t mean that if you just sit and wait that it will come. I don’t know quite what brings it. But the desire, if it’s kept alive, will often be validated with an idea. When you get an idea, you know you’ve got a validation.”
