This is the second part of this series about the pebble in your shoe... The one that cramps your style, spoils your efforts, and leaves you with less than you started, no results, no joy, no satisfaction.
So what is the pebble? Here is my definitions, the result of a lot of looking, pondering... The Pebble: what you take as self-evident, therefore it's invisible for you: it's the concealed switch of the machine that you are...
Example: I've taken as self-evident that the error is in a software I am using. Last night I got an answer to my support request that suggested that I check if my account logins are correct. Lo and behold, they weren't...
I never thought of checking my base axiom: it is always the software that's wrong... I, on the other hand, can't be wrong.
Now, this is NOT the pebble. So why did I share it? Because often you can't get to the pebble unless you start peeling the layers right above it. You will need to find your weird mannerisms, your weird repetitive mistakes, to get in the neighborhood of the pebble.
The "real" pebble is under this base axiom: 'it is always the software that is wrong. Or the customer. Or the student. Or...' in my case.
What it hides, a few layers below, is my core issue, my soul correction issue. My soul correction is titled: Forget Thyself aka lack of trust, i.e. I can't trust anyone. Which means: remove yourself from the picture, your input, your everything and then look again. If you can forget your self-importance, your significance, your entitled-ness, you can start to see that all those are there to cover up that often life works (life actually works and is better off) without you, that you are trying to force life to go your way... and you don't even know it.
Don't you hate that? I do... you have to find the layer that "fundamentally" pokes a hole in your bubble. In my case: if I behave like I know it all, if I behave like I have no faults, if I trust no one, then I don't make a difference, in fact, the world would be better off without me... Not what you wanted me to discover? I understand, but this is what has been hiding there, running the show, running your life, at the root of your misery.
For a moment, I am willing to abandon that it is always the software that is wrong. I look to see what I have taken for granted, and voila, the software works. Darn.
Every person has a pebble (an invisible attitude), and each each soul correction comes with a typical pebble.
For example, Memories, which is a soul correction, has the pebble that says: I should be treated as special... It is often covered up with "It's not fair!" but that statement sits squarely on the top of the pebble. The pebble is a world view... invisible, untested, uncontested.
It's the attitude that says how it is supposed to be, and everything in the world is arguing that it isn't not how it is... therefore it is not supposed to be so. Things are supposed to be the way they are... this is the key to power.
It is very difficult to Find the pebble, it is difficult to find it under all the layers that hide it from your view: the mind does not want you to see it. The ego does not want you to see it. Your whole identity is sitting on it...
How? That pebble is not a thing... it is dynamic. It is a switch... the switch that starts the whole machine of the ego, of self-sabotage into action.
Why? I don't know. It is a vicious design. What maintains it? The fact that it is invisible makes it pretty safe from anyone to disengage the machine.
When you will finally see it, for the sinister purpose it has, you'll be excited, you'll be angry, you'll cry, but you'll, finally, have the beginnings of power.
So what should you do next?
Put yourself into my search-and-destroy type of webinar... "The pebble in your shoes." It's a live webinar, a workshop, and you can choose to speak or not... but you don't have a choice about participating or not. My webinars are interactive... no lurkers.
We'll spend about hours working on finding and distinguishing YOUR pebble. Depending on how many people come to the call, it may go longer. No one will be left out, unless you request... but why would you?
You can sign up now. Each webinar will cost a dollar... Why a dollar? That measly dollar will separate the wheat from the chaff, the tester and the serious. I prefer to work with people that are serious...
