Independence makes you free from something.
I have found that the two kinds of freedoms, 1. freedom from and 2. freedom for are a team.
People have a different level of craving for one of these freedoms, and that's what drives their growth.
My stronger driver, for example, is 'freedom for'. And I liberated and empowered it in me from the moment I first heard the Rainer Maria Rilke poem quoted on a Landmark event back in 1985... "If I don't manage to fly, someone else will. The spirit wants only that there be flying. As for who happens to do it, in that he has only a passing interest."
I remember whispering it to my myself: Please god, let it be me. Continue reading "Independence Day"
This is not my creation, and honestly, I haven't spent much time analyzing it either. But, just so you know, this is a Tree of Knowledge list... I, in my work, deal with the underlying attitudes, not personality traits...

I hope you can see my methodology:
The truth, the big picture, and all the details are in the hidden dimension of the universe. And to unfold any of it, work is needed. Persistent poking of the box.
Some cultures are box-pokers, and others are complacent, satisfied with the size of their jail cell.
I come from a box-poker culture.
Individuals, of course, differ in their level of desire to go beyond the walls... But the average, the culture, is either box poker or not... degrees again... not black and white.
Whether a culture is box poker depends on how harsh survival conditions reign for the culture.
Mongols were box-pokers. Chinese were not. Jews are box-pokers, Brits are not.
Box-poking could be seen as change.

Do you get hooked? People pushing your buttons?
Ultimately, every time you encounter something you don't want, don't like, don't agree with, your first reaction is resistance, i.e. not allowing what you don't like to be.
When you pretend to be different than you are, you are denying who you are... forceful. You don't allow yourself to be.
Now, what you do in the next moment will decide the rest of your life. Because every moment is the foundation of the next moment. Every moment is a new beginning, and the rest of your life is sitting on moments when you either resist or allow.
I push people's buttons with regularity. I talk about their favorite guru, I measure their vibration that is vastly different from what they fancy themselves to be. I refuse to "help" them.

This article is not for everyone. If you haven't been a seeker, this is not for you. This article is quotes from an email conversation with a client who can't create a powerful blockage to energetic, malicious, attachments and spells...
What is your approach to spirituality? Feminine and Masculine?
Feminine is: waiting for it to come to you, passive.
Spirituality, access to the beyond, your relationship to life needs to be feminine... an agressive male approach will take you away from what you are trying to accomplish.
This whole topic came up because a student of mine needs to frequently cloak herself. She also wants to bubble.
Cloaking is very easy, and enough for temporary protection against attachments, but she wants to bubble herself too. Why? I didn't ask.
