Then we imagine the end result. We can see ourselves satisfied and benefiting from the change. We can look forward to the outcome of the adventure with anticipation, excitement and appreciation. We can enjoy the experience before it happens as if it's meant to be, perfect for right now and in line with our life aims.
With this combination of feeling and imagination in mind, learning simply happens. We happen to be motivated to acquire some new resources or search for some information. We may happen to get better questions to dawn on our minds. We will happen to run across some surprising experience which spawns some new insights, inquiries or discoveries.
We get the idea from all this that there is a flow to our learning naturally. Once we are immersed in this stream of continual satisfaction, it becomes clear how to stay in the flow or to derail the process. We can start with a good feeling, or try to learn by feeling worried, pressured and inadequate. We can imagine:
- how things will go from good to better or from bad to worse,
- how the world is supporting our exploration or is out to get us
- how what we want falls into place or how nothing goes our way without a fight
