These verbs describe the wheel of action–the Air of Knowledge, the Will of Fire, the Daring of water and the Earth of Silence.
Whenever you take a new path, a new course, it works best if you get the knowledge of what you intend, and while you can’t know everything, or even plan out how the project will unfold, you have to have a clear idea of the results you want, and that gives you some information about what breakthroughs must occur, what else you will eventually need to know. then you can ask Source/God(dess)/the Universe for that knowledge. It is often given within seconds if you listen for it.
Once you get the knowledge, you move into the Will, the Fire of action, and do something with it. Even if the action you take is small, a baby step, it requires will do to decide to do it, and then to follow through. Something as simple as doing the A to Z challenge requires a bit of will, a bit of fire to do. As you begin to move in the direction you have intended, the Powers that BE set up the coincidences, happy accidents and other surprises along the way that you could never have planned for.
Once water starts moving, it continues to move until somethign stops it, or until it reaches the ocean. Continuing to move in the direction that you want to go, especially if it is away from your normal path, requires daring. It requires more than will and knowledge, but an impetus of inevitablility, like water running, always downhill. You know what you want, and you use your will to act, with the belief that what you want wants you, and that you are in alignment with your desire.
The last step seems counter-intuitive: keep silent. Don’t blab about your new project, at least not to the slings and arrows of mass consciousness. Don’t let other people take a pot shot at your dream. There comes a time when promotion is the next step. There comes a time to shout from the rooftop (My novel is live on Amazon!!!), but at the beginning is not the time. Let the seeds of your endeavor sprout in the darkness and silence of the earth until they are firmly rooted and begin to grow into the light of day, the air, the fire of sunshine and the water of life.
To know, to will, to dare and to keep silent–and it harm none, do what you will.
