No disagreement, but if I can explain how i connected them.
"Externalizing the desire" to me means that i am at point A that i know of and i "want" to go to point B.
So before you say "point B", haven't you asked questions like "where i want to go, why i want to go there and how i will go there?" If you haven't answered, there is no "point B" that creates the perspective. Isn't it?
So, the whatever perspective we each currently experience comes from the whichever answers we have given to our whichever questions we asked in the first place.
Besides when you say:
"dont ask how to win the lottery, ask how you can have an abundance of money instead, for example", is it not an attempt to shifting/creating a perspective through a question? How else could you have done this to yourself or to others, other than through questions and answers?
(The following is provided for illustration only...)
We know very little compared with our own subconscious.
When we "externalize the desire or want" we are communicating with our subconscious.
We can ask questions about Point B but it is not the questions nor the answers that get us there.
Our subconscious asks no questions nor provides any answers.
The questions are like queues for our subconscious to interpret. We can then interpret the "result".
The waking mind asks the questions and interprets what may be seen as answers.
When you say, "So, the whatever perspective we each currently experience comes from the whichever answers we have given to our whichever questions we asked in the first place." we can consider that our current perspective is not based on the questions of our waking mind.
For, "dont ask how to win the lottery, ask how you can have an abundance of money instead, for example", [I don't think this is a direct quote, but I will respond as though it was] it is not meant to be a question for the subconscious but more of a practical question about how to go about making a more effective model.
I suppose the ultimate question is really "How do I get from Point A to Point B?"
The answer is that our waking mind represents what Point B is and our Genius (subconscious) makes it more relative to our current perspective.
