How your integrity, or the lack of it is one of the keys to your raising your vibration, or not raising it...
Yesterday we had a last session of the course, From Upset to Communication.
The call was nearly all about integrity... or the lack of it.
There are countless ways to violate integrity.
The most significant ways are
lying by commission
lying by omission.
We all tend to know when we actually say something that is a lie...
We rarely know when we lie because we don't know what is the truth
And we almost never realize that withholding the truth is the worst thing we can do for ourselves. It is a lie by omission.
I have written about, and taught the inner dynamic of perpetration/withhold before, but it seems that it is never enough. I have 3000 articles on this site, and no person can read them all... We are talking about more than 30 full size book worth of articles... that is a lot.
This article has three parts: truth in science, truth in growth, and truth in hindsight...
There are two ways to "do" science:
you have a theory, and you set out to prove it. You ignore everything that doesn't prove it, and consider only what does.This is how current science works... especially when the livelihood of the "scientist" comes from a concerned party, like a drug company, or like the government.
In the old Landmark Forum, or in the old 4-day Forum, the old Advanced course... the course leader came in yelling: "for you everything is the same as everything else..." or alternatively: "You don't know your ass from a hole in the ground".What are distinctions and what they have to do with a life worth living?
What they meant to say is that you don't have distinctions and therefore life is a mess of undifferentiated stuff... and you have no power with it.
Distinctions are the different ways to look at things. There are a lot of those... most of those you don't have.
A student of mine lives in the same town as I do and for a while he used to drive me around to do errands.
Then I realized that it made him feel entitled to insult me on calls, so I put an end to that arrangement.
That was about two months ago.
He sent me a few emails offering rides, etc.
We even spent a few good times doing "exploring your own neighborhood" type of things, like visiting lakes and such.
Every email that he sends emphasizes that he is giving me something, asking me what I need... etc.
I stopped wanting anything.
I don't want him to give me anything any more. I experience a feeling akin to hate or anger rising in me every time I think of him.
My regular driver is taking a break: she works at the New York State Fair for a few days, and I am driverless. I need stuff. But I won't ask my student for help because of what I want to share with you.
If you are a perpetual and compulsive giver, you think that you are a good person, don't you? Am I correct?
In this article I am going to teach you about gratitude. I will show you why you haven't been able to evoke this powerful state, even though gratitude opens the gates of Heaven, opens your ability to ask for what you desire, and get it.
