In this 2011 article I will show you how I connected to Soul, and through that connection how I have been able to awaken the desire to connect.
As I have said in other articles, desire is necessary to open the spigot of light... Desire opens and closes this spigot, and you can control desire.
The biggest issue is to awaken this desire: it is not active in Soul.
All the modalities, all the methodologies that talk about soul's desire, try to cause your conscious self's desire, and that desire doesn't open the spigot. This is how I did it...
In 2010, October, I took a program, called the Landmark Forum, for the 20th time.
Why on earth would I do something for 20 times? Well, there was something that I wanted to uncover, that in all the Landmark programs I had never able to get a glimpse of. I wanted to discover how come that in spite of all my talents, in spite of all my diligence, I was never able to stay above "just over broke."
The biggest price Positive Thinking junkies pay is this:
You can only have power in any situation if you are looking at what is so!
Why do I call positive thinkers junkies? Simple: they are, just like heroin addicts, unable to deal with the momentary feeling bad about anything, they need an escape from reality, at the expense of their life, their health, their relationships, their money.
When you are a positive thinker, your default context is that reality is just plain should not be the way it is.
For you it's wrong, for me it is just what's so... you are powerless, I am powerful.
Finding the silver lining is not available to you, until you see the reality of the situation. For example, yesterday I screwed up something and lost a lot of money. I saw what I did, I appreciated that this wasn't a good time to lose money, and then I looked for a silver lining: it was a learning experience.
I always return to this two moments in my life. Seemingly insignificant moments, but turning points nevertheless.
The first one was when I saw a poster in a chiropractor's office saying something like this: "In order to get to the next level, you need to give up who you have become."
And the second was a poster with a dark sky with a tiny sliver of light showing through. The words said: turn your face to the light...
The first one is the principle of transformation: everything you are, everything you know is in your way of having what you want, what you are striving for. You need to give it up. Painful, frightening, but it's so.
I got an email from a reader today, one of many such emails:
"Hi Sophie, I listened to your video but I didn't get the answer or find solution to my struggles in life! I am wondering, yes as you said, why I am not transformed in-spite of learning so many methods from attending seminars and reading books! I came from a broken family I tried to change my life but sometimes my life was up but mostly down!
Financially I struggle, bankrupt and thinking to end my life. . . But when I hear your story, I did not and I am now almost 5 years searching for answers? I have read the Bible many times from cover to end and everyday, I received emails trying to sell me self-improvement books but I am fed up, nothing works! I would appreciate if you can help me!"
So what can you answer to someone who has been struggling and considering suicide a viable alternative?
One major distinction I need to teach to all my readers, students, a distinction that if you don't learn it, you'll miss everything.
The distinction is called: Where are you listening from?
The from is the operative word here. It is your base attitude consistent with your "grounds of being".
We each are embedded in a paradigm. The insides and the walls of our paradigm are built from our belief system. Your paradigm has everything that you need to stay the same, and nothing to be more successful that you are, happier than you are, thinner, richer, more entertaining, more attractive than you are.
Your current life is exactly what's possible inside your current paradigm.
What is the foundation of even having any predictions? There are two: the Hopi myth that seems to be coming true (I didn't do any research! do your homework!) and the Mayan calendar.
The Mayan calendar which is conveniently (?) illustrated by one of the temples, it is shown that humanity is approaching its current state's fifth night.
Each period, including this one, is divided to 5 days and 5 nights. According to the Mayan Calendar the time of the fifth night is approaching. The traditional interpretation puts the end of the fifth night to December of 2012, a Swedish researcher says, that it will be as soon as October of this year, 2011.
