The secret to any journey is not to trip on the first step

Secrets.  Magical things are they.  Value held in security, to be dispensed in trust, or held in arbitrage.  Given freely, a secret no more, unless unshared, it remains evermore.

The journey, a metaphor for any time, adore them both we do;

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”

“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.

“I don’t much care where –” said Alice.

“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.

“– so long as I get somewhere,” Alice added as an explanation.

“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”

Tripping has it’s good;

1. Moving quickly and lightly; nimble
2. Speaking or flowing easily; fluent
3. light and quick, as a step
4. proceeding with a light movement or rhythm

Tripping has it’s bad;

1. catch one’s foot on something and stumble or fall.

2. The manifestations can range from feelings of vague anxiety and alienation to profoundly disturbing states of unrelieved terror, ultimate entrapment, or cosmic annihilation. Psychedelic specialists in the therapeutic community do not necessarily consider unpleasant experiences as threatening or negative, focusing instead on their potential to greatly benefit the user when properly resolved. Bad trips can be exacerbated by the inexperience or irresponsibility of the user or the lack of proper preparation and environment for the trip, and are reflective of unresolved psychological tensions triggered during the course of the experience.

The first step;

An embarkation metaphorically connected to any undertaking.  Literal on-boarding to the imaginary vessel of our design.

The point;

Don’t trip yourself up when defining a journey.  Sometimes, you should simply take the first step and lead yourself and others to success.  Concept, idea, plan, project, action, or simply daydreaming, try following these steps.

  1. Start this instant
  2. Enjoy
  3. Complete
  4. Start again
