Sophie, after I read your last article I checked my last 2 friends' soul corrections. My one friend who pushed me to a certain level had a soul correction Forget Thyself. My friend now, whom I met this year, also has a soul correction Forget Thyself. Interesting. Do we get attracted to certain soul corrections or maybe we get along better with some soul corrections that matches our soul correction?
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 soul correction 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.
I am starting a 3-session exploratory course next Thursday. It's called HeartConnection Meditation.
The goal is 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 you ask a student what it is that they have the biggest issue with, they say fear.
So I asked the Creator what was the Seat of Courage, and I got the surprising answer: the heart.
But heart is known to be the center of love... Is it possible that we suffer from lack of love and that is what we experience as fear?
Osho thinks so. Obviously Lao Tzu thought so. And if I had the time, I could, probably, find thousands of other authors and teachers that think so.
So we are suffering from lack of love.
I have the Unconditional Love Activator, and lots of people bought it. But many, when they realized that they need to listen to it, moreover they need to learn how to connect so they can get the activator, about 40% said in their head, I imagine, to heck with it.
And if you looked at that activator, it only activates one side of love: the side of being loved.
So I have my task cut out for me: in a humanity that can't love, I need to implant the capacity to love, invent practices to cause the actual feeling of love, and cause it such that it is strong enough to cause courage.
Looks like a steep mountain to climb, if you ask me.
But it's possible.
Entrepreneurs have the love of business, dealing, creating new stuff. Musicians have the love of music, although not all musicians.
I grew up feeling unloved. But I had love. Love is what goes through you. It comes from you to whatever you send it to.
I loved my kitty: our cleaning lady hated the poop under the furniture: she threw her off the balcony, straight into the jaws of a dog. I loved the bird that we nurtured back to life. He used to participate in our Sunday dinners on the top of my Dad's head. I loved that we let him go to live his life wild. He used to come back, at least once a day, to stay in touch. I still have tears in my eyes as I write this. Continue reading "Want to Beat Fear? Here is your Secret: Because Of Great Love One Is Courageous"
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 soul correction, 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.
