Magic Wand Thought Experiment

Write a detailed essay outlining a reality (yours) which would comprise, essentially, heaven on earth. One in which from the time you awaken to the time you go to sleep, you're constantly reminding yourself, "Wow, I can't believe they pay me to do this.", or "Wow, this is f-ing unbelievable." Every day. Gratitude being a predominant emotion experienced on a daily, hourly basis in this reality.


Remember, this is a MAGIC WAND! There is no room for practicality here. Do not hold back on anything. For example, you may want homes in Malibu, the mountains, Lake Como, Hawaii - and a Gulfstream G650 to shuttle you between them. Do not limit yourself, whatsoever.


This exercise serves a number of purposes which will be revealed later, but utmost is completeness in all dimensions - material, physical, relational, emotional, financial, technical, etc.


Following are a few prompts for fleshing out this perfect world in which your Idealized Self resides:

  • What do you look like? Why?

  • How does that feel? Why?

  • How do you move? Why?

  • How do you walk? Why?

  • What is it like to BE you? Why?

  • What is the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning? Why?

  • What experiences bring you the greatest joy?

  • What kind of person will my current self have to become in order to live in that new reality? 

  • What traits will I need to possess that I don't now?

  • What traits DO I possess that I'll need to shed?


Please be as descriptively rich in sensory and emotional content as possible to bring this ideal/perfect future self/reality to life.
