But why would you? Not everyone judge themselves. I, for example, don't... or not often at all. I often assess myself, my behavior, my looks, my stuff... but assessment does not carry condemnation in it, and it doesn't carry praise in it either.
What is the difference between judgment and assessment -->Click to read footnote 1 ?
The main difference is fixed mindset.
In judgment, the judging person lives as if there were a fixed good or bad, smart or stupid, right or wrong. And then they act as if they were assigned the job of judging...
I have found that people with this combination are unable, unwilling, or resistant to do the work of the Playground.
The Playground is a very simple distinction: separating reality with what you say about it. Your opinion, your narrative, your story, your judgment. I teach you to see that reality as it is, A is A, separately from what you say is what you say.
If you continue collapsing the two independent parts: what happened?/what is so? and your judgment about it, you'll remain miserable.
This principle is expressed in Henry Ford's statement: If you say you can, or if you say you can't, you are right.
Both can and can't are commentary, but what you see will be modified by your commentary, and that will hide the reality: that you either will or won't.
I watched Lincoln, the movie over the weekend, and it was quite obvious that this inability or unwillingness to see reality separate and not connected to your opinion, your reaction to it is what is missing for you: and it is the secret of human misery. Utter misery. 24-hour misery.
It will take a year to remove this misery, and hard work...
Every step that has taken me closer to become a happy person has been the result of gaining this clarity, little by little, this ability to separate and uncollapse reality and the interpretation of it. Removing the "what it means"... Removing the "therefore".
It is simple, but it is not easy.
On the way to happiness you'll have to say good bye to your favorite complaints, your favorite woes... and admit that it was all made up.
Whether you made it up yourself, or took it, uncritically from others, is immaterial.
If I asked you if you sat down on a quiet Sunday afternoon to meditate what would be the fastest and surest way to live a life of quiet desperation, to always be on the verge of utter unhappiness... you would say: no I didn't do it.
And yet you maintain the behavior, the collapsing reality with the story...
The third Playground is scheduled to start in a few days, this coming Saturday, but I won't start it if there are not enough participants.
It seems that freedom, happiness, grace and ease is not enough for most people to strive for... they want magic, and angels, and superhuman... and anything that will actually make you happy is not big enough for you. Hm.
If you have a soul correction that is marked with x, xx, or xxx on the list below, you'll have a harder time to cause your transformation, because you feel like your life depends on remaining the same...
Look in your heart and see if you are willing to let go of your skin so you can live a life with a whole lot more happiness, fulfillment and a whole less of misery, complaints, and excuses why you are not all you can be.
And if you are, then register in the Playground. It is very inexpensive, it is once a month, and can produce the kinds of results ten thousand dollar courses can't: because it concentrates all the energy and all the power on a sticky point, that when it lets go, the sun comes out.
I have seen it time and time again. It is like a miracle, a rebirth, a new lease on life.
OK. And here are a few useful quotes for you:
You're not clever. You don't know what you want. You have no proper fierceness.
John Steinbeck writes about the importance of individuality and creativity. "And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world...And this I must against any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual...If the glory can be killed, we are lost.
"...a man's importance in the world can be measured by the quality and numbers his glories. It is a lonely thing but it relates us to the world. It is mother of all creativeness, and it sets each man separate from all other man". this means that the greatness of a man depends on his deeds during his life, which is a sad fact. But these glories or deeds is what gives people individuality and creativeness. Those two traits ultimately makes humans human. It's why we're so special.
PS: I am writing this note six months into this Playground. It's quite dramatic, and almost daily I have to change my mind: what is true for a soul correction may not be true for the individual.
For example, so far, the two soul corrections that do really poorly in the program are Silent Partner, and Building Bridges. Silent Partner will do anything not to "have to" live a normal life, where they would be free to produce, because they don't want to produce. And my hunch is that the same is the issue with Building Bridges, but those Building Bridges people are better at hiding their secret desire...
The Playground is the most rewarding journey I have ever lead... And I am ready to do it again, with yet another group, starting on the heels of the one that started around the time I first wrote this article. If I live long enough, I will start a new group every six months.
It is as dramatic as having your cataract removed... I hear from older people that the moment they can see again, is quite an event. I can only imagine.
- assessment: the evaluation or estimation of the nature, quality, or ability of someone or something. My starting point measurements are assessments, even if you take them as judgments. You add the judgment to my assessment!↩
- And here is a list of all the soul-correction numbers and their titles. I marked with one, two or three x's the soul corrections that are especially resistant to transformation... a different way of seeing the world, namely uncollapsing what happened and what you said about it. And then some soul corrections refuse to see things any differently:
marked x: resistant
marked xx: unwilling
marked xxx: unable
