I've been diligently working on my assignment: connecting Humanity to Source and vice versa.
Humanity is learning about Source, and Source is learning about Humanity.
One thing Source learned yesterday is that Humanity, as a whole, is unwilling to change.
Now, that is not 100% true, only 99%.
According to muscle testing, only the people in the poorest countries of the Earth, that, somehow managed to still foster and have personal ambition, are willing to change.
That makes the number of people that are willing to change a total of 1% or so of the Earth's population, about 70 million people.
Only one of my students is among them. I personally know four of them. About one million live in the United States... that is one third of a percent... one in 300 people.
The rest of them are giving lip service to change.
What is the willingness to change? How come you feel like you are willing, but really you aren't?
Willingness to change needs you to have no reason to change.
When you have a reason, as soon as you are close enough to accomplish that reason, or alternately the reason becomes less important, you'll stop.
One of my teachers, through his books, Robert Fritz, has coined an expression, "oscillating structures" that shows clearest why that is.
Imagine that you are on a slimming diet. Restricting your calorie intake and exercising are not easy and not pleasant. Carrying the extra weight is neither.
When you begin the diet, the unpleasantness of the weight dominates. Some time later, when you have shed some of the unsightly fat, you feel better, and suddenly the unpleasantness of the diet and the exercise dominate.
So you slow down or stop altogether.
This can go back and forth forever, that's why people can claim that they have lost 1,000 pounds... and they are still fat. They have put back that and more, inside this oscillating structure. It's like a rocking chair: gives you the illusion of changing, gives you the illusion of moving, but it's just an illusion.
This same structure applies when you want to change yourself for a reason. To feel better, to get rich, to find a mate, to please me or someone else.
The trouble is, all the self-improvement gurus, in fact, all the gurus, except maybe Jack Zufelt, teach you to set a goal. They are talking about having a big "why," thus setting you up to enter an oscillating structure that is the root of all unhappiness, in my opinion.
It leaves you unhappy, unfulfilled and on a mouse wheel that goes nowhere. If you accomplish your why, you are left with: so what? If you don't, you experience yourself a quitter and build a case of more quitting as a way of life.
So what is the solution?
The solution is to go deep inside you (if you have Centaury and/or Cerato, Wild Oat, or Agrimony in your Bach Flower Remedy profile, you probably can't!) and connect to the Soul: when you connect to the Soul you can't say no to it.
The Soul wants to change, for no reason. And your happiness, your fulfillment, your health, your wealth depends on working with Soul, or working for ego. There is no third option.
How do you connect to Soul? I am not sure how YOU connect to Soul! On the connection calls I connect you to Soul, but that doesn't mean YOU connect to Soul. Given the number, one of my students that currently connect to Soul (one), me connecting you to Soul isn't really connecting YOU to Soul.
So, my honest answer to this question on February 2, 2012: I don't know. Yet.
So, my job is to find the people who already connect to Soul.
I received this news yesterday with a stiff upper lip. Then I could not sleep. I looked, tested, and found that unless I allow myself to feel the grief and pain of doing hopeless work, I won't ever be able to sleep.
I allowed myself, I cried for a few seconds, and then slept through the night.
I am doing my work for no reason. It is the Soul's calling. And I obey.
PS: did you notice I didn't say "your Soul?" It is because it is not your soul, you are the Soul's human... disobedient, disconnected, and unaware.
