A Guide to Triangulating Awareness: Your GPS for Life

Book Five in the series “Kaizen-durance, Your Aerobic Path to Mastery” explores a system of self-guidance and orientation for navigating daily life – what “Zenman” calls our “GPS for Life”. 

The international Global Positioning System (GPS) has changed the way we navigate our physical environment.  Now, with the advent of devices small enough to wear on our wrists and mount on our bikes, it has also significantly enhanced our methods of endurance training and racing. 

GPS devices inform us about location, speed and distance traveled.  When this information is interfaced with a map, our devices can direct us to our destination.  Many of us would be lost without our GPS units.

There is another far more powerful “GPS” that can enable each of us to navigate every moment of our lives so we can move through life with more balance, harmony and functionality.  Let’s call it our “GPS for Life”.  This internal GPS provides moment-to-moment guidance to make empowering and enabling choices as we navigate our daily lives – including our relationships, occupation, athletic training, even the most significant and monumental life-changing decisions each of us must face. 

Each individual is equally endowed with the resources and potential to tap this GPS for Life – regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, religion, income, etc.  Our GPS for Life doesn’t require any external device, or rely on modern technology.  It’s free and equally accessible to all of us.

GPS uses a process called “triangulation”: The device on your wrist or in your car monitors signals sent from three of the many GPS satellites positioned in space.  By comparing these three selected signals, your GPS unit can determine your current location, direction of travel, and speed. 

Our “GPS for Life” also functions through triangulation.  However this triangulation involves three distinct aspects of consciousness – generally referred to as Body, Heart and Mind.  These three aspects of consciousness resonate throughout the universe, permeating all forms of matter and energy.

Beyond race performances, athletes often site enhanced clarity, functionality and a sense of flow in their daily lives as strong motivators for endurance training.  This is a significant element of maximizing return on our aerobic investment.  With training, we can strengthen the fitness of these three aspects of consciousness so that we can draw upon them equally for accurate triangulation. 

Building life fitness occurs through the same processes as building aerobic fitness, and follows the same universal laws and principles.  This means we can train aerobic fitness and life fitness simultaneously.  All we have to do is learn to use our GPS for Life.   

When you purchase a new GPS device, it comes with an instruction manual.  Similar to our external GPS devices, this internal GPS for Life also requires setup and calibration, and knowledge of how to interpret and respond to the data that is displayed. 

In Book Five, Eversfield offers a clear and accessible guide for the endurance athlete on how to use this GPS for Life, and how get the most benefit from it.  Triangulation is essential for hacking our performance potential in any and every area of our lives.
