I saw something today I hadn't seen before. But before I say what I saw, let me dispel some myth: there is no such thing as bad energy. Energy is energy. It is good if you use it for good. And bad if you use it for bad. I'll write another article on this: but I have the urge to state it here and now: there is no such thing as bad energy.
All energy is good... and some meets you and triggers something bad... But it's you... sorry. Oops.
Note: I wrote this article three years ago, but it is as timely as ever... It moved me then, and it moves me today... Enjoy!
This question doesn't sound like it could make much sense, does it? But when you find out what it means, you'll be thrilled to know that it is the panacea, the cure for most of what ails us.
By the way, Nature's fundamental law is: Like causes cause like effects. If something you consider "cause" doesn't work reliably, it is not a cause, it's an effect. Like prayer, like certain remedies, like the "Law" of attraction, like thinking positively, like placebo...
The Second Phase Activators Course just finished on Sunday, and I am working on the next course. Making decisions, creating some new stuff. And a big change: I will not allow everyone to sign up, just because they want to be in it.
There are some current students who, because of their attitude, lag behind. This creates tension in the group: I spend more time trying to unstuck the unwilling or lazy ones than actually teaching stuff. (The main unwilling attitudes 'it's good enough for me the way it is,' 'why rock the boat,' or belligerence or even hostility/resistance are the attitudes I have been experiencing and won't tolerate in my next courses.
These people also don't have a big enough desire to change or even to experiment, and change and experimenting are mandatory if you want to create a shift in your life to the better.)
We must admit there are people who do LIFE better than we do, they get ahead, they live well, seem happy.
How do successful people do it? They have good judgment. But where do you get such good judgement from? Good judgment comes from bad experience. And the bad experience comes from pain. What you do with it will make all the difference, what is your attitude towards it, will make you win in life, or stuck in life.
When you don't feel at home in your body, when your feelings, your thoughts pull you out of yourself, you have a sense that you are, somehow, lost in the shuffle. That you don't have any say in the matter of your life, what you feel, what you do, what you say...
You feel you are put on a roller coaster, and it wasn't you who did it.
I am here, waiting for the cable man to fix my internet. It's been down since yesterday afternoon.
It is hard to remember what we did with our lives before the internet... for me it's been 18 years. It is hard to figure out what I can do that does not involve the internet... Finally I settle on writing, editing, and such.
It's 11:30 am. The repairman was scheduled to be here at 11. I am sitting here, uncharacteristically anxious, contemplating that the man won't even show up, that he will lie, that I will have to be another day without the ability to work.
It's excruciatingly painful. I am diligently making room for the bad feelings, including them, breathing normally. Then I have a suspicion: is this mine? I normally don't get anxious: I take life as it comes.
