MY KNOWING

We are all here to live every situation we can imagine, good or bad; right or wrong; positive or negative. Why? So we can learn from the experience as part of the adventure of life.  Murray Kibblewhite

CASE STUDY – HOW TO HELP A FRIEND LIVE IN THE MOMENT SUBJECT: RELATIONSHIPS

 Have you experienced the situation of trying to help a friend do, learn or change? And your friend does not do what you suggest? The question is – how long do you try helping them?

Yes, they are your friend and you can see clearly what is holding them back- but they won’t accept your suggestion. They may even become angry at you! When is enough enough?

For example:-

  • My ex-flatmate, who is Chinese, was working for a Chinese owned and managed company here in Auckland. The Owner/Manager would text his staff at all times of the day and night and expect his staff to be available at all times. I suggested he approach his boss but my flatmate was unable to tell the Owner/Manager of his poor management style. Eventually he left the company.
  • My current flatmate is studying Christian Theology and as part of her training she had to give a preaching to her class mates. Afterwards she was severely criticised, in private, by the Director of Studies. He said instead of “preaching” where you pass on lessons from the Bible, she had made a personal statement and not quoted enough from the Bible. I advised her to ask for a re-assessment but she decided to leave the class and change courses.

 Learning

So what is the learning here?

I recommend that with all friends to not hold onto hurts and anger and live in the moment which means:-

  • Do offer or undertake what you think is necessary for your friend.
  • But if they do not accept your help, then let them go.
  • It is not your duty to change them.
  • Do what you can and let them chose which way they want to go.
  • Remember, we are all here to learn in our own way so live I n the moment.

All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what is the real lesson to be learnt?

How to use:-

1) Accept you need to change your Attitude and Actions on a daily basis.

2) Read, view, discuss and learn other ways. Set time aside daily to study.

3) Practice a new action until it becomes a better habit. Then discuss with your friends.

CASE STUDY – HOW KNOWING YOUR ARCHETYPE CAN HELP YOU SUBJECT: HEALTH

Archetypes are underlining mythic themes that can be found in all races and cultures at all times.The archetypes are ageless roles or key stereotypes that exemplify different forms of behavior. They often appear as the main characters in legends, fairy tales, Shakespearean dramas and Bible stories.”

This definition is taken from the book “Soul Psychology” by Joshua David Stone page 235. On the next page he continues:-

“Every person who has ever lived on earth, or ever will, fits into one of these twelve archetypes or mythic themes. That is why the study of this science is so important. The ultimate goal in your final incarnation on earth is to integrate all of them and be victimized by none of them”

Further down that page he lists the archetypes which are also given the names from the diagram above:-

1 Destroyer – Creator                            7 Ruler – Ruler

2 Fool – Jester                                          8 Seducer/Seductress – Lover

3 Innocent – Innocent                            9 Seeker – Explorer

4 Magician – Magician                          10 Servant – Everyman

5 Martyr- Hero                                      11 Warrior – Outlaw

6 Patriarch/Matriarch – Caregiver    12 Wise One – Sage

On page 238 he continues:-

“The most important thing is not to judge one’s self. Living out all these themes, whether in a positive or negative manner, as they are all part of the process.”

Further down, he says:-

“It is also important to remember that every archetype or role has an opposite. This is why you can’t in truth identify with any single archetype, but must embrace all of them from the position of the Witness self.”

Learning

So what is the learning here?

Stone gives the answers on page 238 as:-

“When you integrate all the archetypes you have infinite possibilities of expression and are not stuck in one role. You have all of them available in their positive aspects when you need them.”

Further on he says:-

“… the goal is to reject the negative ego and lower-self expression and always attune in oneself to the soul and higher-self expression.”

All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what is the real lesson to be learnt?

How to use:-

1) Accept you need to change your Attitude and Actions on a daily basis.

2) Read, view, discuss and learn other ways. Set time aside daily to study.

3) Practice a new action until it becomes a better habit. Then discuss with your friends.
