This article is about how separation, division, is preparing, has been preparing humanity, you, to lose possibility, lose the capacity for inspiration, for the spirit coming alive. To make humanity powerless sheep, bleating, to support this separation. This division has one purpose and one purpose only: to make more money for the 1% and impoverish the rest.
If you read the pdf I included a few days ago… you know how it is really, behind the scenes… Read the pdf and weep. I did…
Yesterday in my Growth course
Yesterday in my Growth course, students asked me to distinguish possibility for them, so they can be inspired again, inspired at will.
If a so called possibility talks to, excites only a group, it is not a possibility. If anyone is excluded: it is not a possibility. If it is only for you, obviously it isn’t a possibility.
The rule of thumb for something to be a possibility or not a possibility is whether the spirit inside EVERYONE who hears it comes alive and start flapping its wings. If anyone could say: good for you, then it is not a possibility. Unless everyone’s spirit is touched, moved, and inspired… it is not a possibility.
Spirit is discerning… it responds only to inclusive and universal statements. The spirit is the cause of inspiration… and the spirit has been deadened in you for a while, even though the happiness you want, the joy you want, the fulfillment you want is all from the spirit.
There are two measures that are indicative of the spirit’s aliveness in you:
- whether you are inspirable and to what degree… and
- to what degree you are inspired now.
To no one’s surprise, half of yesterday’s class was neither inspirable nor inspired.
Inspired is the spirit coming alive in you, flapping its wings.
Yeah, I am not talking symbolically: inspired and bird and spirit… it is all energetically real, I can feel it. It is not in your stomach, as some guessed, when your stomach flaps: it is fear. Or maybe excitement. Those two feel almost exactly the same, fear and excitement.
No. Inspiration, the location of the bird is just vertically above your heart, between the heart and the seat of the soul… and of course if you can’t tell agita from inspiration, fear from anger… if you don’t know which side your heart is, you can’t identify it.
Two of the students whose number showed they cannot get inspired claimed to be inspired, but it is all mind stuff… no spirit, no bird, no flapping. No inspiration.
Now, why wouldn’t you be inspired or inspirable, if you aren’t?
That is a very good question… and the question leads to the topic, the one I have been pushing all week: humility… or better recognized by its opposite: a high about-me score.
It is a worldwide disease: identification with the we and them world we are taught we live in.
What inspires spirit is we… What inspires spirit is the song: This land is your land, this land is my land, from California to New York island. Not what the ‘separatists’ say to me: How can you live in New York? As if it were the enemy.
They not know what they are doing.
I am not a Christian, I don’t believe in any of it, but there is a moving sentence in the New Testament (I think) where Jesus says to god: ‘Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.’
Compassion. Including even your executioners. Even those who don’t agree with you, don’t support you into the we.
Yeah, the spirit was making somersaults in Jesus and in me as I am reading this. A Jew.
You can get inspired by your magnanimity, by your compassion, by your inclusion, by being a possibility… the spirit rejoices withyou.
Because we are all the same: people. Life is in us, spirit is in us, and the separatist ‘we’ kills the spirit…
And it is all the result of the overactive ‘about-me’ score, as if everything were a survival issue. Nothing is.
- Being right about something is all ego…
- wanting to win is all ego…
- fake news,
- being a victim or the perpetrator: it is all ego… not your friend.
Your natural state is to allow the spirit to fly. To be inspired by things bigger than yourself, bigger thann your group. To be inspired by Life.
It is offensive to the ego to accept that you have been manipulated, that you have been a puppet on a string, but that is the truth.
Because you want to belong… belong to wherever.
People walk around with their umbilical cord in their hands looking for a place to plug it in… said someone: I heard it from Jay Abraham some 30 years ago.
I don’t even want a student who is like that… Who will be an evangelist about my work, instead of doing the work. No fffff-ing way!
I want YOU to be all you can be… and if being that inspires others, good… but no proselytizing… ugh.
Proselytizing, whether it is about religion, or it is about your opinion of the other party, the not ‘we’ and you tell stories about them being transgender, or stealing the election, or whatever bs floats your boat is a good indication that you are not taking care of your life, your health, your wealth… that it is all ego, and self-righteousness… you are killing the spirit.
Divide and conquer has been around forever, and so has been crowds of people who couldn’t tell their ass from a hole in the ground that jump when they suggest they jump.
Reclaiming your power over yourself, from the ego (about-me score is all ego) and become a real person is your job if you want to reclaim your life.
The first step is to activate the humility gene… a spiritual capacity, or if not it will all be just a pretense you can talk about but it’s all hot air, not real.
Belonging doesn’t mean you have to give up who you are, that you have to give up being a person, and become just a mouthpiece…
It’s been one of my favorite ways to release myself from the ego, to say: ‘Who do you think you are that entitles you to judge?!‘
I have a very opinionated soul correction (Forget thyself), a very opinionated Sun sign (Virgo). But as long as I can tell the difference between my opinion and judgment, I am OK. I can look at the world and be inspired, and love, and care, and include, and life works, my health works, and I belong. I belong to this Earth.
I worked as a massage therapist for ten years out of necessity: I wasn’t well enough to do much anything else.
I have two master’s degrees, and a third degree one credit short. I was overqualified. My clients were ordinary people with ordinary lives.
Those ten years trained me in humility: none of it was about me. I was there to make the massage experience memorable for them, to be the mother they never had, to give them all my attention. And it wasn’t a sacrifice: I loved being with them experiencing a WE with them.
It trained me and stripped away the ego, and perfectly prepared me for the work I do now.
I now have two friends who are Trumpists. I have two coaches who are Trumpists. And I have only moments of irritation, and I can be a we with them, even though they can’t.
But I have noticed that the experience of ‘we’ is contagious… They are coming around, if nowhere else, at least with me. They like the warmth of we. And that brings tears in my eyes. My spirit rejoices at their spirit STIRRING.
It is all about the capacity and practice of taking your ‘about-me’, the self-concern, the self-righteousness, the taking sides, out of the picture and just be there for what there is, what there is to do, what there is to take care of.
A beautiful life experience.
Obviously after doing the Freedom Courses this becomes easier… but it is never too early to start the process.
They hug like soul and ego can for a wheel… to take you to heaven… instead of the ego keeping you stuck.
Go and get the humility or both the humility and the Freedom Course
