Greed: Impatience, Hurry, Wanting, Forcing, Craving, Pursuing, Fighting For. Even What You Call "Loving" Is Greed. Sorry to burst your bubble...
And all resistance in the chest, in the pit of the stomach and in the shoulders... whatever the reasoning.
What is the opposite of greed?
I mean, if you knew that anything with any element of greed in it works to your detriment: it makes you miserable, and it repels what you are greedy for... You would get curious what is the opposite of greed, wouldn't you?
Talk about double punishment!
Empathically (feeling your feelings) looking: greed is a tightening. The shoulders try to get closer to each other and want to meet in the middle. Why? I am the reporter, not the theorist, sorry.
Sidenote: the author of the book isn't even willing to entertain the word: emotions. This should tell you something.
In the world of symbols, the level of words, most people use the words feeling and emotion interchangeably, but they are actually not even connected directly.
Feelings are a 13th floor phenomenon. They are as physical as anything, measurable, and make a lot of sense.
Emotions are a 15th floor phenomenon, and are entirely culturally defined. They are the marker feelings of words... and there is nothing that makes sense about them. Anything that is culturally defined is designed to confuse and enslave you. No kidding.
One thing you already know about me: if I find something that says what I want to say better, I put it in my article. I have no ego about it. Actually, the story I tell myself about it is that only brilliant people can be humble... and that is both true and a lie. Actually, the truth is that humility, the willingness to say "I don't know", the willingness to say "did I get that right?" are both the result and the cause of brilliance... So no matter how you look at it, I am brilliant... lol. Now that was fun, lol. A lot of fun. Now, onto the quoted article:
What stories do you tell yourself concerning your disappointments, failures and embarrassments? Were you the unfortunate victim of evil?
Perhaps it's time you start telling different versions of those stories. Regret and fear are incapable of guiding you to Success.
The stories you tell yourself are the foundations of your self-image. The self that will either get things done or not.
"The first principle of self-deception is you must not fool yourself — and you are the easiest person to fool." — Richard Feynman, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics
Sometimes guidance comes from a student or client request.
Today I heard from a long time client who never managed to go from a to be... despite of the many courses she came to.
She had a difficult time accessing an activator, part of the Second Phase Activators (I downloaded more than 100 activators in that course!). I checked and she was right, somehow the video got corruteed in the more than three years it was moved around...
I listened to it and it dawned on me that without activating humility, of course you'll never learn anything. Anything new, I mean.
Here is the article I wrote at the time, and in the meantime I am trying to rescue that video: given that it is the cornerstone of all learning, all growth, all evolution, all raising your vibration, if necessary, I'll dedicate another webinar to the topic...
In the meantime, here is the "oldie but goodie" article
