It was about 10 years ago. I was getting somewhat better by drinking energized water. Not well, mind you, better. My skin was clearing up, and I had less occurrences of narcolepsy, where I would fall asleep in the middle of speaking, or driving.
I was way up in Colorado. It was a seminar by Marshall Thurber. I was already muscle testing my food... and most everything they had there tested "no" for me.
One of the "celebrity guests" at the seminar was Bill Harris. He is an excellent marketer, the marketer of Holosync. I was a diligent Holosync user... so I was excited seeing him there.
On the last day he and I started to talk (I think I was stalking him) and it came to the topic of water... I started to share about energized water.
He got really upset, and self-righteous, saying that it was bullshit, water is water is water.
I never used Holosync again. I use Bill's emails to see what I should avoid. Like Mary Morrissey, whose program he is pushing today.
The question in the title is as vague as a question can be vague...
But it is still a good question.
If you look at yourself, you, I bet, knew what the question was, even though none of the words are clear, and mean one and specific, discrete thing... at all.
This is one of the reasons your accurate vocabulary measure is so low, in the Starting Point Measurements. You think you know what words mean... and you don't even suspect that they don't mean that... 1
OK, I am not going to take the question apart, you can do it in your own time, instead I'll attempt to make the question clear... accurate... one-meaning.
If you change your inner world, what you honor, what you value and in what order: will that effect the outside world, other people's behavior, people who aren't even aware of you?
We don't know what it looks like to be good, to be kind, to be independent, to be happy, etc.
I wrote recently about my quest to become a kind person.
I am 70 years old. Why now? why so late in life?
When I look back at my childhood, when I look at my brothers, their wives, I see no kindness. EVER.
I am now able to be kind except right now, today... I am irritated, and out of balance... I don't want to share the "story", but please know that there are innate capacities and learned capacities. I will never be as patient as a saint... especially when I am out of balance... Kindness and patience are intimately connected.
