Building momentum is an interesting concept on the Write Synergies journey.Â We need momentum both in the inner sphere (as in building our inner foundation for our ongoing awakening awareness), AND in the outer sphere, building momentum around creating our creations or ventures or projects.
According to Merriam Webster, momentum is “strength or force gained by motion or through the development of events.” Building that force of forward motion, or momentum, is most often seen as an outer process, and it certainly does come into play as we create the body of workÂ in the manifest world.
But let’s consider for a moment, the very important role that “building momentum” plays on the inner path.Â Â It is the strength of that inner motion, strengthening the inner part of our work and our selves.Â At the same time, that inner forward motion is the key to creating a strong foundation on which weÂ build the castles of our creations following the Write Synergies Path.
Building a foundation from the momentum of forward motion and strength of the inner journey requires the tools of self reflection, discussed in the writing to awaken self awareness post. Just as the foundation of a house is invisible once the house is built on top of it, so too the foundation built by our inner journey is unseen on the outside.Â Yet it is the most critical part of the entire construction.Â Without a solid foundation, nothing will stand up. This is why I say, “The inner journey IS the journey.”
This journey begins with a single step, and once taken, the momentum builds, step by step.
