Motto: Mentor: Someone whose hindsight can become your foresight
Remember who you are
In 1981 I got a letter from a man from Israel. He claimed to be a second cousin on my father’s side to me. He was coming to an educational conference in Hungary. He came with his wife.
We spent time together, they were staying with me, in my one-bedroom high-rise apartment in Budapest. He visited with every member of my family, and witnessed their contempt for me first hand.
He promised to be family to me if I decided to go to Israel.
One year later I packed a suitcase and left Hungary. illegally. It was winter in Hungary when I left, in fact it was below 15 minus, very cold. It was about 80 degrees in Israel when I arrived, penniless. I knew one word in Hebrew: shalom.
I said in the last article and I say it here again:
We are all born with a full “Christmas tree” loaded with ornaments i.e. genes. Some of those ornaments light up, some of those don’t.
The capacities that those dark ornaments show as dormant are patience, compassion, caring, seeing the big picture, intelligence, focus… as you see, these are the prized qualities of winners.
And they are dormant on your tree of genes, the Christmas Tree.
I have found that strong energies that create a whole new terrain to play on, plus consistent small actions using those capacities create a DNAactivation, an epigenetic shift where you don’t have to try to be patient, you just are.
