From as far back as I can remember, I think I’ve always had my brain boiling, the thoughts colliding continuously, one question leading to another, one idea leading to a myriad of others. I was told that I had a creative mind, but what is creativity worth if it is not expressed? I had lots of great ideas all over the place, I was always procrastinating and nothing really satisfying was taking shape in my reality.
Several years ago, when I was at the bottom of my bed with my eyes wide open, hostage to yet another insomnia, a new enlightenment had crossed my little head and I had heard myself whisper: «a thought, an act». Had I finally found THE solution? Probably relieved, I remember that I had immediately fallen asleep.
The next morning, I woke up with a smile on my face and a light heart. Not too proud of me, I sat at the breakfast table and said to the present friend:
– From now, as soon as I have a thought, I will make an act to realize it!
He shrugged his shoulders and said:
– Poor thing, you won’t have enough of a day to realize all the thoughts that are rushing. Do you even know how many we produce per minute?
I was sweeping with my hand his coming explanation:
– I am convinced that by putting into action any thought that comes to me and by focusing all my attention on the act in question, rather than producing more thoughts, they will calm themselves.
We live an incarnation experience that requires us to fully inhabit this matter and to fully inhabit it, it seems essential to me to go beyond theories and other concepts and go further in order to concretize them. For having put into practice the inspiration that came to me that night and for having made it since a habit, I can assure you that when a thought is followed by an act, we then become complete and it is only by being whole that we can feel inner peace, that which manifests itself when we cease to be torn between the idea and its realization.
