Welcome to week twenty-four. This week, David sees and feels the clues to his life mission coming together, like threads. In the practice section, we continue to explore the process from last week, including Step 3.
I saw the “ten thousand things,” code for choices without number. I felt the clues from the campfires moving in and through the eddies, moving now toward a choice. I felt the pieces, the threads of the weave, and their hints of possibility. Art, science, spirit, and life mission wove themselves together with all the other passions of my life. I felt the draw toward renaissance and living in the horizontal world integrating all the possible pursuits and interests of my soul. I felt the threads coming together.
Everything I dreamed of, each and every facet of my nature, each interest, fascination, and motivation was an important and necessary thread in this weave. Each of them pointed to this moment, and wovea vision, spinning at light speed toward this eternal now.
Everything on every level began to line up. It was the moment, a moment for the call to again open in a new way.

Here is a recap of the practice from last week: The essence of the practice is to activate your reticular activating system with the intention of understanding more about your life's mission blueprint. What you notice this week will give you clues about your reason for being.
Step 1. Set your search image. Write this down on a piece of paper: "Reticular activating system, show me clues about what life mission means to me."
Step 2. Move through your day noticing what you notice. Write it down on a piece of paper during or at the end of the day. It might be one thing or many things that you notice. Just describe it as best you can.

And now for Step 3.
Step 3. This week, be present to the clues you collected last week and reflect on them. You may find it supportive to begin with an integrative activity such as writing with your non-dominant hand, moving your body, singing or toning, or drawing. Then reflect on the clues you've been gathering about your life's mission. What do you sense now?
