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 – HOW TO LEARN FROM OTHERS – AS THEY MIRROR YOU!

Deepak Chopra in his book, “Ageless Body Timeless Mind” page 282 says

“…….. when you see yourself in terms of timeless, deathless Being every cell awakens to a new existence. True immortality can be experienced here and now, in the living body. It comes about when you draw the infusion of Being into everything you think and do.”

While Chopra explains this possibility in more depth there is, in my opinion, a link between his statement and accepting that everything is a learning experience.

Therefore, a change of thinking from accepting the Duality (everything is either right or wrong, good or bad, positive or negative)to the event is a learning experience, then you can draw in the information of Being and become at one with God.

For example, one of my female clients who is starting a new business asked me to give her some feedback on her personality. So I drafted out a table with five factors of which I assessed two at 100% and three at only 50% each.

Then I explained briefly the reason for the 50% grades, and finally, knowing her personal circumstances, I gave five options for handling her situation.

Her response was to say that she was offended because it included a “sexist” statement!

She did not give any response to the grading given or the reasons for the gradings. She only commented on two of the five options.

From my point of view, I felt an “infusion of Being” preparing the report that was to help this person.

Unfortunately, she only saw where her pain came from and could not accept the other aspects of the assessment.

Learnings

So I learnt that you attract to yourself what you need to know. And, as a mirror of myself, I had to review the experience and realise I was not seeing my own self fully and therefore I was putting restrictions on myself.

In her case, her background, especially at a young age, showed she experienced family difficulties that still had to be cleared, as she can only see her pain.

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

CASE STUDY – HOW TO ENJOY THREE INSPIRATIONS

A close friend sent me an e-mail suggesting I check out the writings of Alain de Botton.

What an inspiration unfolded as I read about his philosophy made available through the world-wide branches of his “School of Life”.

His book, “The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work” has been summarised correctly as “amounts to a celebration and investigation of an activity as central to a good life as love – but which we often find remarkably hard to reflect on properly.  As de Botton points out, most of us are still working at jobs chosen for us by our sixteen-year-old selves. Here is the perfect guide to the vicious anxieties and enticing hopes thrown up by our journey through the working world”

Then another colleague introduced me to Frederick Bailes, a fellow Kiwi who lived in New Zealand from 1898 – 1952. He too was an inspiring writer with a sound philosophy.

Later in his life he entered medical school at a large hospital in London. Here he observed the mental factors which entered into the recovery of patients as certain thought patterns produced similar body reactions.

Like later exponents of his thinking, Annette Noontil and Louise Hay, Bailes discovered that a person who can change their thinking can lead to remarkable healings.

Finally, by chance I decided to view the Zeitgeist movies – “The Movie”, “Addendum” and “Moving Forward”.

Based around philosophies of “The Zeitgeist Movement” and the beliefs of the “Venus Project” the three movies outline the false assumptions of our present civilization and offered a new model to follow.

To receive these three inspirations in a short space of time was remarkable as it was exciting. It was like getting on a high but without the after-effects of taking drugs.

A beautifu,l beautiful experience!

Learnings

These three new ways of viewing life indicates the need for all of us to learn to become more flexible and adaptable to the great ideals and philosophies as we live on Earth.
