I have an exploratory course. It’s called HeartConnection Meditation.
The goal was to get to a combination of methods to awaken courage.
What we, human beings, experience when courage is needed is fear. And we concentrate on the fear, either by talking about it, or by hiding it. But either way it occupies our entire field of (inner) vision.
When I ask a student what it is that they have the biggest issue with, they say fear.
One of my students is asking a really good question.
She has two friends whose soulcorrection is Forget Thyself… and she has a good relationship with me… and I have that same soulcorrection.
Sophie, after I read your last article I checked my last 2 friends’ soulcorrections. My one friend who pushed me to a certain level had a soulcorrection Forget Thyself. My friend now, whom I met this year, also has a soulcorrection Forget Thyself. Interesting. Do we get attracted to certain soulcorrections or maybe we get along better with some soulcorrections that matches our soulcorrection?
The answer is not that simple.
We know that we have two selves. One self doesn’t change. We can call it the soul. Or the Self. Or whatever you want to call it, it is unchanging. It is the same in you, it is the same in me… it is, maybe, the Self of what’s possible for the human species…
Obviously your other self is far from that, it is changing, it is reactive, put together, selfish, and complaining, and haughty, and bossy… all the things you see everywhere.
According to Malcolm Gladwell: life skills, social skills, winning skills you learn through living with people who use them.
My mother didn’t have them, and my brothers, especially my younger brother didn’t get them…
I did get some from my father: my father came from deep… his mother died of starvation, he was bounced between families, autodidact: getting an education without going to school, walking from one country to the other to save his skin…
I didn’t see any of that. What I saw was him spending almost all his time writing or reading, and advancing himself.
Others, the rest of the family, could watch senseless TV… he wasn’t pulled by that: he knew what he wanted, and it seems that he knew that TV won’t get him there.
This topic is just beginning to emerge for me, so expect some changes, and wild turns, and summary statements reversed… but yet it is worth exploring, it is worth to take this winding road to discover the connection, and do some soul-searching as to what I really hold true, and also to meditate what the “Original Design” holds as ideal blueprint for a human… Big task, but I am up or it.
I am going to examine it through three soulcorrection archetypes, for now, Forget Thyself, (34) Soul Mates, (28) and Sexual Energy (35).
I am starting to see enough of these to be able to say something that may make a difference. I am also tempted to pull in “Speak Your Mind” (25)… we’ll see. Don’t hold your breath.
OK, let’s begin… big sigh, fear, oh, what the heck, the worst can ever be is the article won’t be publishable, lol.
Update: Having worked with two more soul mate people, I am seeing something additional: you cannot find your soul mate if you have a preconceived notion of what that looks like.
But if this is your soulcorrection, then no one is good enough for you, because you have an expectation, an agenda, and everyone will fall short. Even you will fall short of your expectations of how YOU should be.
Your job is to start to get real, start to stop interacting with shoulds and such…
Ultimately you are setting people up to fail… and it is unconscious.
There is more… but I cannot access it right now… I’ll add to this when I can verbalize it.
