MY KNOWING

We are all here to live every situation you 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 – What are on the two sides of the coin of life?

Mahatma Ghandi was the preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.(Wikipedia) While he was severely beaten several times in his life, he did not prosecute his attackers, because in his eyes they were doing what they thought was right!

Gary Zukav, in his book “The Seat of the Soul” says on page 45, “Non-Judgemental Justice is a perception that allows you to see everything in life, but does not engage negative emotion.”

Further on he says, “Non-Judgemental Justice is the freedom of seeing what you see and experiencing what you experience without responding negatively.”

My interpretation, from a Project L.E.L point of view is that each and every experience you have chosen so as you learn from the experience. So if you suffer violence in your relationship, follow Ghandi’s advice and realise that the attacker “was doing what they thought was right.”

But, what are you the victim learning? What about learning understanding that the attacker’s background has educated him to use violence to control others! Or what if your learning is forgiveness! Or maybe it is to give you courage to continue without retaliation?

Maybe in a past life you were a powerful and cruel person who committed violent acts against others. Then this current experience is for you to understand what it is like to be the underdog!

I know, if you are a victim that it does not take the pain away, but it is an experience you have learnt from, which means you should not have to suffer it again in the future.

 

Learnings

Non Judgemental Justice and learning from every experience can be considered the two sides of a coin called life. Accepting what happens in your life rather than judging and blaming others, will improve the quality of your life.

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

STORY – YEAR 28–How to gain Autonomy, Independence, Self-Discipline, and Responsibility

 Michael, at another lunch, this time with Yan, a young Chinese guy who was unloading his pent-up frustrations as he exploded, “Why does my father not like me?”

Listening to Yan’s story, Michael realized that this young man’s journey was so far removed from those experienced by Chinese refugees arriving in New Zealand in 1939/1940 having escaped the atrocities of the Second Sino War.

Yan arrived in New Zealand when he was 20 years old and completed a B.Com degree within two years. So, at the age of 22 years, he had to decide what job to do. There were few options, so after much consideration and discussion with his Immigration Advisors, he chose to gain an Investor Visa.

This meant his father had to deposit $NZ1.5 million in New Zealand. Because his father was too busy with his businesses in China he could not come to New Zealand to help Yan complete the complicated visa application. This meant Yan had to complete the application himself in a short time period, which put him under considerable stress.

The application was successful and Yan became the youngest person to gain an Investor Visa. “Then” Yan continued, “I had to invest the funds without my father’s help as he was still too busy in China.”

“But you could always ring him?” Michael asked. “He rings me when he has free time.” Yan quickly replied, “Like when he is traveling to the airport or between meetings. And they are always short and he never asks how I am but always talks about how the investments are doing? I am very lonely!”

 Learnings– Yan learned to be autonomous, independent, have self-discipline and be responsible. Unfortunately, these learnings came without the support of his parents, especially his father. He learned to operate even though he felt lonely.

CASE STUDY – Be Your Own Doctor

Annette Noontil in her book “The Body is the Barometer of the Soul SO Be Your Own Doctor” on page 124 says, “Do not forget that you attract what you need to learn.”

At one of the educational institutions, I worked at there was a male teacher, who on the surface was eloquent, knowledgeable and efficient. However, for me the most noticeable actions he displayed indicated something else.

While teaching and when he spoke with me he was always sneezing, coughing and blowing his nose. It made me feel uncomfortable being in his presence.

According to Annette Noontil, his symptoms’ were of what would be called the common cold. They indicated he was feeling or trying to: –

  • Get rid of the emotions of not being his own master,
  • Not enjoying himself or what he was doing,
  • Not accepting himself in a way that he felt cheated, and
  • He was unable to see his good points

Summarized, this man was not enjoying being a teacher as he was not his own master and could not see or accept his own good points.

On page 123 Noontil says, “Your body tells you what you need to learn” So it is important to realize as well, that whatever you see in others, you have in yourself.

So these two guidelines can help you decide what and where you need to change and not expect others to change!

Further on she says, “Anything that stops you from being and being at one with the Universe, such as limiting fears, guilt, worry, yearning, raciness or no self-acceptance, means you need to change.”

Learnings

Learning and change go hand in hand. Become aware of your body and the physical   indicators of others to see where to learn. The effort of making a change means accepting that all events are learning experiences to help you become at one with the Universe.

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