Sailing towards the sun can be a quite challenging experience. But it is worth doing so, from the shadows and the rain towards a more convenient place. Literally and metaphorically. For that, above all, you need that driving combination of conviction and craftsmanship. You have to have guts. And above you need a boat.
A plan will help you, but much more important is the action itself, that state of actually doing it, of going into an adventure. And of course you need to know about the moon and the stars, the water, the tides, the currents and the wind. And you need to know all about your own strengths and weaknesses. Outer and inner world meet in success, always.
In fact it is about the ability to navigate, that constant peddling between knowing where you are, where you want to be and what to do. Let’s go, towards the sun.
