A Blueprint for Your Life
My symbolic drawing of the framework
The framework of life
The old adage, "Life is what we make it" is a fact that does not require us to believe. The only question is, "are you actively creating your life, or are you just going where the current takes you?"
A sensible and assertive person would create a goal for himself and must be courageous enough to follow or achieve such a goal. There are long term goals which probably be a ten-year goal and within this long term goal are sub-goals which can be short terms or a bit longer term goals.
Some constraints in creating goals is that most of us create goals that are not really needed and that we are not sure if we can really follow them. Goals must be such that you are decisive enough and willing to pursue them because they are within the framework of your life.
What is a framework?
A framework is another term for a blue print. It is similar to the foundation and the skeleton of a house before the walls, the floor, the roof and all the finishing touches are based to complete the house.
A life framework is the base of everything you do with the objective of having a fulfilling and satisfying life. Everything we do would then be based on this framework. First, we create a long term goal for each of the components of this framework in the balance. Then, because of this framework in mind, the goals we create would not divert from the kind of life you want to create for yourself. Anything we do that may be harmful or may cause to divert us from such framework would be noticeable and we just discard them easily. The main objective of this frame work is to develop a focus and a strong character and values system within you.
Here I draw a symbolical framework that I can see every day to remind me that I will only do things that are within this framework. This symbolic framework is for myself; anybody can be creative and make their own; what is important is you understand all the symbols and that they are meaningful to you.
The following are eight symbolical components of a complete framework that I made for the kind of life that I intend to create for myself within a given period of time.
I had made a drawing that symbolizes these eight components of my life's framework. This drawing is shown here as an example.
Abundance is symbolized here by the branch of a tree that is full of fruits and a basket.The basket represents labor or work to harvest naturally its fruit. Natural abundance is represented by the tree which is directly connected to the ground, the "mother" earth.
Love is represented by the symbol yin and yang. This shows that love relationship can only be fulfilling and successful when there is perfect reciprocity.
Peace here is represented by a dove with young fresh leaves.
There are seven stars with colors different from one another and they are shown like coming from far away to the present. Significant to this is the sexy bodyof a woman, which for me would mean my sexuality and being sensuous; these are necessary feminine characteristics when used in a natural sense as represented by the flowers, the landscape, the sky,water. Sexuality should be naturally productive and must be in its proper perspective rather than abused to insinuate others.
Health symbol here is the restoration to the natural flow from within and outward.
Success is represented by a bird in paradise that had finally reach the sun, the source of energy and the peak of one's potentials.
Happiness is represented by a woman who is capable of leaping over obstacles. She is backed up by the source of energy, the sun.
Faith is the eyes that can see beyond what the immediate environment is presenting; it's wisdom.
