One of the books I have chosen to engage with intensively all year is Barbara Sher's classic Wishcraft, a book I have never previously read all the way through.
One of the practical exercises in this book is Five Lives. In it, Sher asks us to imagine we have five simultaneous lives, and to record what we would actually be in each one. Here's what I wrote:
1. A writer
2. An academic
3. A New Thought minister
4. A Buddhist monk
5. A film maker
|Walter Mason as academic|
The purpose of this exercise? Sher writes: "In each of your "lives" is something you love very, very dearly and need to get into your one life - and you can."
You must have five things you'd like to be if you had five separate lives? Would you like to share them in the comments?
