I just had an interesting interaction with my buddy, Source.
I have been under the weather, my heart is ailing, and I have been giving a lot of thought to dying… and the things a responsible person does to make their dying easier on the people they leave behind.
I am doing what Source suggested I do to get well, and it is not happening fast enough… lol.
So this morning, in fact a few minutes ago I asked Source if I should do something differently. And the answer was a firm yes.
And when I get a yes… of course, comes the hard part… finding what the heck is that I should do.
Talking to Source is like the game intelligent people like to play, where they ask question to find out what/who the other person is thinking of… and all the questions are to get a yes or a no answer. Not a stupid person’s game…
And yet… all of life is a game like that: you ask good questions, you ask enough questions, you’ll go far in life. Most don’t. Most keep guessing… inside the narrow cone of vision they live with. Continue reading “Who you are is resigned and cynical. That is who does your life…”
On my way home, climbing the long steps off Euclid Avenue, I was listening to Step 21 of the 67 Steps. It’s about a superpower of being able to get into a relationship with people because you can recognize how their machine works, and because therefore you can speak their language.
Everything comes to you through people… and you cannot get more abundance than what your skills with people allow you to have.
I have been resigned about my ability to get better at dealing with people. Resigned means: I have a fixed mindset about it, that says: it may be possible for you, but it’s impossible for me.
But being resigned doesn’t mean I have given up. I haven’t. But every time I read someone’s stuff, or watch someone’s stuff who is good at it, and maybe that is their superpower, I resent them. I do. Not nice, I know, but it’s how it is.
It goes hand in glove with resignation. Continue reading “The three R-s… or how the bad news is a godsend and can be the beginning of something great”
