Into The Wild Blue Yonder

"Into The Wild Blue Yonder"

For many years, surfing the internet for a piece of sanity was the “name of my game”. About two years ago, I surfed upon the Life of Learning Foundation and became a loyal visitor and still am to this day. I have learned from being an avid reader of the many resources available that it was time to step up and put my acquired knowledge into action, out into the wild blue yonder. I have thankfully learned that knowledge without action is as good as nothing if you don’t apply it to your life.

So in setting sail into the wild blue yonder, I began to write down what I knew and then let the pen guide me into the unknown, jumping right into the wild blue yonder and on to some answers. One avenue through a mysterious other led me to building a website on spiritual discoveries. Three months ago, I was greatly computer illiterate; only knowing a mouse, how to surf the web, and how to open and send an email. I couldn’t even do an attachment. As you can clearly see, coaching was a necessity, to say the least.

One of the first things my coach had me do was write down my interests or hobbies. The word “spiritual” was not mentioned on that list even though that was where I had placed my attention for the last four years. For some unknown reason, even to me, that was my “secret”. By asking me some very specific questions, somehow like magic the spiritual life in me was inspired out.

As inspired as I was, I knew I was going out on a limb and on my way into the wild blue yonder. A sacrifice I had to make to create room for new ways of thinking was to begin letting go of the old ways that were no longer effective. Taking a risk into the wild blue yonder is like when you experiment with a new attitude. It can be a sure way to test your limits, learn new skills, experience new things and take on more independence and responsibility for your life. It can also be full of adventure.

Going into the wild blue yonder is not always smooth sailing. Obstacles will still be there as usual to ensure you learn the lessons along the way. Obstacles can be a problem if you learn nothing and do nothing about them. It is best to make an effort to overcome the obstacles for they can be a significant asset in your journey into the wild blue yonder. They can help to build and mold an inexperienced person into someone who is matured and wiser to become truly worthy of the goals which his spiritual heart wants.

So off we go into the wild blue yonder. Go ahead and dare to let go, out on a limb. Isn’t that where the fruit is?

      Hi Dotti firstly thank you for becoming a fan of my Hubs. It is always great when soneone so experienced thinks you are worth following. I love to hear of other people who are willing to face their fear and do it anyway. That truly is the way we grow. It is with all the wonderful insightful writings and thinking of the many who are now using their person power to write and publish their thoughts and dreams that we will heal the most beautiful Universe we have been gifted with. Blessings

      I have read this article and it confirms my belief that every one has craving to know , understand the basic fundamental question as to 'Who am I'. We have got many answers. Yet we are not satisfied. This spritual urge to discover our own existance is never ending. But in the process we undergo transformation. We dont remain what we were. We become new. We start loving the life, the world as it is and the ostacles in our journey, they become opportunities. Sure you have power to take any one into beyond imagination.

      I love reading and learning about your pilot stories. The more I learn the better I can strike up a conversation with a brand new member of my family who is a pilot. Thanks. Dottie

      Nice hub. I, too, know the feeling of typing something into Google and seeing something I wrote come up in the results.

      I also enjoyed the "To the Heros of the World" video on the hub. I have always enjoyed watching fighter jets in flight and movies involving fighter jets and arial combat (the series "JAG" was a favorite of mine when it was running). However, years ago when I was doing my military duty I was a navigator on a KC-97 air tanker. It wasn't a very glamorous plane but it did have three things going for it that fighter jets didn't. First, as an old colonel who flew DC-3's told us in AFROTC summer camp, the operations manual for the DC-3 was about 3 inches thick with information about how to fly it safely thanks to the knowledge provided by years of flying experience and crash investigations, while the, then, latest and most popular aircraft the SR-71 contained about a half a dozen pages and would have to wait for more crashes and near crashes to get the bugs out and fill out the manual. Second, with four propeller engines and 2 jet engines, losing an engine in flight was no problem for us as we had 5 others to keep us aloft while fighter jets had only one or two engines whose loss left you helpless. Finally, the KC-97 was big enough to have a bathroom while fighter jets lacked this.

      Keep up the good work.
