When I wrote the article about racial, ancestral identity and its importance, I touched on something that is not valuable for most people... because I didn't go deep enough and I didn't accurately identify what it takes to be proud of who you are, where you belong.
I got on the phone with one of the people who was very unhappy about that article... I was eager to talk, because it is near impossible to go beyond the visible by yourself. It is a whole lot easier when you get input... because what is invisible to you can be visible for another.
You can make the same mistake, over and over, expecting different results.
You can eventually learns from your mistakes, but you insist on making them a few times...
You can learn from other people's mistakes.
I am not talking here about your IQ? About ability?
I am talking about behavior. Behavior that comes from your world view, your self-view, and the number of the capacities you are wielding...
To consider doing things differently needs a modicum of humility. Modicum means: a little bit. Most people have none... Just watch a 3-year old: "Don't tell me what to do! I know!" yells the little boy... and they freeze into that attitude.
Humility is a capacity. Without some humility there in no curiosity, there is not real learning, there is no experimentation, thought or otherwise, there is not growth.
If you are a fatalist or determinist, 1 you probably have no humility.
If you find the juice in life in being a victim: you probably want no humility.
Summary: An enlightened being is confident. Confident in their ability to be a match to whatever life throws at them, and therefore they don't fret, don't sit around, they do what it takes to achieve what they set out to achieve.
A confident person can do almost anything. Confidence is not a belief, confidence is a certainty, a KNOWING, and it is a very high consciousness level... it is the capacity to see what isn't there... because that is what it takes to KNOW that you are a match to anything, and if you fail, you'll learn from it... just another way to be a match to life.
We could call the process of becoming confident the Path to Enlightenment...
Enlightenment is a process, that could be called becoming an Expanding Human Being... And the path to confidence... the process to become an Expanding Human Being, is finally ready.
And not surprisingly, this is the same path to a higher vibration, all the way from the puny vibration you have now, to the rarefied height of the 900's, and anything in between.
When I google this phrase, "become a match to your dreams" all the sites I find talk about the Law of Attraction or manifestation... so I have to suppress my distaste for the misdirection those sites and those teachers carry... and just relate to the sentence itself.
Most of the people, when I ask them what they want, talk about stuff that they have no business talking about. Most, I say, because I do have some, a few, exceptions.
When you consider that you have to work for everything... that the Law of Attraction, if there were anything valid like that, would say: when you are ready, when you have done your work, fully and without cutting corners, then the results will follow.
