MOTIVATE: Provides “Reasonable” Actions 18 of 65

MOTIVATE: Provides “Reasonable” Actions 18 of 65

To provide someone with a reason for doing something has been a very marked breakthrough (read more here) for myself and I assert it comes to me being able to share “inspiration stories” effectively.

How else would you persuade an ordinary human being to put fire in their mouth and then blow large flames? (See Ceasefire Project)

In my experience, where I found myself ‘being inspired’ really allowed for other people to be inspired’ knowing our spectacular fire shows was ALWAYS in of WORLD PEACE. Thanks to Lucy, it is now WORLD PEACE BY TUESDAY 15 SEPTEMBER 2020 (see Lucy “12 year old” contribution story )

Whenever I hear or read the word ”Motivate”, I smile, as it was a word that came up in one of our inquires into “being human”.

Why does one need to be motivated?

Are we inherently lazy and need to be or get motivated to just do life?

A whip can help? (“wrong” type of motivation)

Hmm, I learned that through my many years, that I have been participating in Landmark Worldwide’s programs, ( see personal share here ), the need to be motivated can be accessed by what is missing in my life. Once I have found it, I get inspired and get into happy action! Consider that if you find a passion that INSPIRES YOU, then any need for motivation disappears perhaps?

WHAT IS YOUR PASSION THAT WILL INSPIRE YOU TO MOTIVATE?

Water: An Evocative Vision for the mind 17 of 65

Water: An Evocative Vision for the mind 17 of 65

Water: An Evocative Vision for the mind 17 of 65

Water is defined as a stretch or area; such as a river, sea, or lake. It is the basis of the fluids of living organisms and is a colourless, transparent, odourless liquid.

From the context (read more here) of transformation, I wonder and marvel, as this word “water” is the 17th card I have been receiving to write a blog upon.

The previous word was Knowledge and having finished that blog, I burst out laughing (Happiness Card in action!) as I realised I had only completed 59 blogs, and not 60 blogs as my personal promise with DigitalBloggers.com (3 blogs a week for 6 months plus) Reaching for the remaining  49 Happiness Oracle Cards , I pulled out :

‘Water”…..more laughter!

How on earth am I going to tie water with transformation?

WOW!

I needed to generate (read more here) right now because “water as transformation” conjures up (for me) some sort of message, as you can “so read” water! J

I have to admit I cannot recall a time where water was discussed in any of the personal development courses I have done over the years, with Landmark Worldwide. Provided for free at all seminars and workshops, water does contribute to transformation, quenching thirst, I say cheekily.

For me, I deliberately used WATER as the medium, to promote World Peace By Tuesday 15 September 2020, by imaging these words in bubbles, in a swimming pool.

What is exciting for me today is that I have now had the bubbles spelled out in German and French; two of the top 5 “arms selling” nations, after a successful campaign, that had Facebook upload several of my #WP2020 into their GIF database, enabling ANYONE on Facebook to share the gif!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE FORM OF WATER?

Knowledge: Awareness gained by Experience 16 of 65

Knowledge: Awareness gained by Experience 16 of 65

Knowledge is defined as facts, information, and skills acquired through experience or education. One can consider that throughout one’s life, one gains more knowledge with diseases like Dementia and Alzheimer’s diminishing one’s knowledge gained.

From the context (read more here) of transformation, one of the most fascinating inquiries I was introduced to, through Landmark Worldwide, was in the world of ‘what you don’t know that you don’t know!” One’s ‘blind spot’!

In fact, the Landmark Forum follows a syllabus which is designed to reveal new aspects for every participant to see new openings for action. For myself, my big moment came when I took action and called Mum and Dad on my Saturday of the course,(read story here). The feeling/thoughts/understanding that for 30 years of my life, I had been unconsciously operating as ‘unlovable’ was SPECTACULAR! I kept on saying to myself: no wonder, no wonder, no wonder! This piece of ‘knowledge’ has so empowered me to this very day and hey, it is not like the truth even!

I am currently participating in my second Wisdom Unlimited course where my knowledge is being expanded in areas that are important to me. Inquiry and discovery are great ways of expanding one’s knowledge so, with my stand for World Peace by Tuesday 15 September 2020, I have discovered that this project, as far as I have learned, is at the stage of “strengthen and build support”. The next stage is “predict and tune” so I am engaged in this inquiry with passion and commitment (read more here).

WHAT KNOWLEDGE WOULD “HAPPILY” IMPACT YOU TODAY?

Harmony: Balanced and Poised 15 of 65

Harmony: Balanced and Poised 15 of 65

Harmony is defined as a state of agreement or orderly arrangement or one could say a sense of balance. From this space, one could describe a feeling of peace where everything is aligned and in place.

From the context (read more here) of transformation, I can see that my journey, in the world of personal development, has accomplished much harmony in my life. It was not to say that my life was unbalanced, when I started in October 1993, yet what the ‘curriculum for living’ really opened up for me was to “put the past in the past” and stand for a future that touched, moved and inspired me. As a result and indeed the promise; at the end of my 9 months training, was that I would be living a life which I loved and living it powerfully.

The Self Expression and Leadership program did create a life of wonderful harmony, where my communities related to me as a future that I had invented and enrolled them into having gotten. What has been noticeable is that my “harmonious life’ does get ‘disrupted’ and the opportunities, (that arise with these so called ‘breakdowns’), is for myself to distinguish who I am being. I have learned how to restore balance and return to harmony by looking at my integrity (read more here). Furthermore, I have learned how to review any parts of my life where there is disharmony (rare these days) and bring forth futures that transform  these states.

WHERE IN YOUR LIFE CAN YOU SAY YOU HAVE HARMONY TODAY?

Feelings: In Touch with Oneself 14 of 65

Feelings: In Touch with Oneself 14 of 65

Feelings are defined as emotional or moral sensitivities. It comes with many forms such as joy, sorrow, fear, disgust, surprise etc and is also expressed in many ways.

From a transformative context (read more here), I can attest to all these feelings throughout my journey of personal development starting with the Landmark Forum back in October 1993. As mentioned throughout the courses, you could consider your transformation as ‘a ride on a rollercoaster’ with many ‘ups’ and downs along the way.

With that said, I have been refreshingly ‘put in touch’ with many thoughts and feelings that I have withheld from sharing with others for years.

  • What will people think?
  • I don’t really matter!
  • No one will be interested!
  • Why should I share myself?
  • I suffer from depression sometimes!
  • Who cares anyway

Are only a few of my thoughts and feelings that have come up over the years and, indeed, it is an ongoing process. One of the strongest reasons I have engaged with my second Wisdom Unlimited Course run by Landmark Worldwide is that I personally love growth and development.

Only today, I was able to share my true feelings with a lady in the ‘hardware isle’ of a shop in Ocean Shores, Australia. She said that she had seen me blowing bubbles (Friday’s staff Christmas party) and that her 7 and 8-year-old children had seen me too and enthusiastically shouted ‘World Peace by 2020” up at me from her car.

I replied I, unfortunately, didn’t see them and that I was very thrilled that children in my community have taken up the shout and passed it on! I shared my sheer joy whenever people, who see me in my “world peace” outfit, (as I run around my neighbourhood on sunny afternoons), honk their horns, show the peace sign in fingers and shout the words out at me. Our conversation was for around 10 minutes and we are now new friends on Facebook. I feel blessed for having shared with my feelings, as a result!

WHAT FEELINGS DO YOU REGULARLY SHARE WITH FRIENDS?

Inspiration: Leadership that is loved 13 of 65

Inspiration: Leadership that is loved 13 of 65

Inspiration is defined as the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. As a transformational word (read more here) , I know it is so present in all of the Landmark courses I have undertaken over my “10 years plus” with them. Indeed, my “TMI” was coined from the phrase “touched, moved and inspired!” presented as potential outcomes for any individual undertaking their courses.

In fact, my first Self Expression and Leadership Program, I was trained to “TMI” family, friends and associates by distinguishing who I was BEING on a moment by moment basis. If no “TMI” was present, I could see that perhaps my ever–pervasive past of being “unlovable” and a “failure” was present! J

Often, to uncover or reveal some inspiration into your life is a simple process of seeing what is missing, the presence of which, will make a difference in your life.

What is missing in my loving relationship was and is an ongoing inquiry for myself. One of the most beautiful suggestions I have learned, through all my personal development, is to consider that love is an act of generation “moment by moment by moment”. What I have learned, as a result, is that if I am complacent with the love I have for my partner; I could certainly lose that thrill I experienced when I first started the relationship. Doomed if I hear the words…”the honeymoon is over’ so I take on being engaged in “generating” (read more here) love from as many spaces as possible and to keep going! J

IS INSPIRATION PRESENT FOR YOU TODAY?

Celebrate: Magical moments captured 12 of 65

Celebrate: Magical moments captured 12 of 65

Celebrate is defined as an acknowledgment (a significant or happy day or event) of a social gathering, and certainly highly encouraged in my current Wisdom Unlimited course run online here in Australia. Indeed, between weekend 3 and weekend 4, we were invited to PLAY and have a great life! Urm, given I am age 56 , the word ‘play’ certainly challenges what I think is the NORM of a 56 year old out there ‘playing’! However, I can certainly underline a moment where having great life was celebrated,(read Take Off story here).

From a transformational context read more here), I have had plenty of moments that celebrate my stand for World Peace by 2020 through the media. See Ceasefire Project “Celebrate your victories’ was and is shared well in a few of my Landmark courses, and inquiring now, surely this demonstrates something honourable?

However, if one looks at one’s life from the world of ‘no celebration’, one can observe, perhaps, that life has no challenges. With no challenges, there will never be “a cause for celebration” simply as there hasn’t been any movement in how one is operating in life?

Ironically, it took me getting stabbed (read story here) that had me consider a LIFE SO WORTH CELEBRATING, although wild and reckless celebrations perhaps weren’t the best ways to celebrate, hey Charles?! J

IN YOUR LIFE, WHAT CAN YOU CELEBRATE TODAY?

Challenge: A Call to Prove Something11 0f 65

Challenge: A Call to Prove Something11 0f 65

I remember when I shared with a friend that I had participated in the Landmark Forum and the lady said: “That was brave of you!”

Reflecting now, I can see that undertaking any personal development is a CHALLENGE, as you are putting yourself ‘on the line’ for self-transformation. The first part is to reveal and discover who you have been being, (see ‘revealing’ syllabus). Once ‘enlightened’, one has access to all sorts of transformation, (see my unlovable story here).

I challenge myself often, as I find it a fantastic way of ‘generating’ (read more here) new ways of being, to address the challenge. Indeed, whenever I have taken a stand, for things that are important to me, the challenge that arises immediately is to notice all the things in my life that are not aligned with the stand. One of my most memorable challenges was when I had to address ‘gathered news television cameras’ and declare a ‘live failure’ for a gathering of fire breathers at the Sydney Harbour Bridge,(read more here).

Maybe one could say that life is a challenge, and it “seems endless” that one has to prove oneself to oneself and others. If one is not challenged, then maybe life occurs as ‘mundane’ and ‘boring’?

 “Aaah, well maybe that’s how I like it!” I hear some of you cry!  Relax. At the end of my Landmark Forum, I was invited TO CONSIDER  that life is empty and meaningless and that it is empty and meaningless that it is empty and meaningless! How challenged was I? J

I INVITE YOU TO CHALLENGE YOURSELF WITH YOUR FAVOURITE DREAM AND SHARE IT!

Energy: Power at Hand 10 0f 65

Energy: Power at Hand 10 0f 65

Energy is defined as the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity. From a context (read more here) of the world of transformation, it certainly can used to distinguish whether one is operating with integrity where energy is abundant.

In my first Self Expression and Leadership Program (read more here), I invented a future:

“Love expressed through Leadership, Inspiration, Energy and Enthusiasm”

It took 3 months for me, to transform myself into this future, using an invented community project as the methodology. What my coach helped me discover was that whenever I was ‘flat’ and ‘uninspired’ , I could consider that my ever-pervasive past was present!:)

A lack of energy can be due to all sorts of reasons. Through all my training and development with Landmark Worldwide, it was often evident that if one lacked power, one’s integrity ‘was out’! Throughout my first Introduction Leaders Program, one practice was to complete a weekly ‘Integrity check list’ (read story here) working on ‘cleaning up’ my integrity.

I remember on my second weekend of the course, the exercise was to recreate some poems we had learned over the weeks. The invitation was to perform the poems “10 times more excited”.

I got in front of my peers and did one poem! Cheers and well done came from the participants.

However, the program leader Francis Foster asked:

Charlie, what was that?”

Charlie: “That was 10 times more excited!”

Francis: “No it wasn’t, are you out of integrity anywhere in your life right now?

Charlie, after some false claims, revealed his integrity ‘was out’ with the dole office, having done a ‘cash job’ and not declaring it the week before.

Francis: “Ok, do the poem again!”

I received a standing ovation from the participants, and it showed a MARKED INCREASE in my ENERGY levels for the poem.

WHAT PART OF YOUR LIFE NEEDS ENERGY RIGHT NOW?

Friends: A person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection 9 0f 65

Friends:  A person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection 9 0f 65

How do ‘friends’ and the world of transformation correlate or interact? Perhaps the key is to distinguish “the bond of mutual affection” that binds the friendship first?

When I started my personal development in October 1993 with the Landmark Forum (see videos here). As with all the courses I have undertaken, there is plenty of opportunities for participants to get up on the microphone and SHARE!

Over the years, I have been amazed about the kind of friendships available on this planet noting “the bond of mutual affection” comes in all shapes and sizes.

From a transformational perspective, I can say that a friendship exists by virtue of a declaration.

“You are my friend!” I cheerfully smile.

“Urm but Charles, I hardly know you!” You reply authentically perhaps?

“You are my friend, as you seem/appear to like reading my blogs?!”

This simple scenario can “oh so easily” be broken by a “bad” reply or comment at the bottom of this post for example.

If this occurs, you can see a potential for an ‘all of a sudden’ UPSET, which can be any one or a combination of the following 3:

  1. Thwarted Intention
  2. Unfulfilled Expectation
  3. Undelivered Communication

In that moment, you can see I may even be justified in UNFRIENDING the person. However, if I am big enough to see the other person’s point of view or even allow such a post/comment etc, then one could say I have generated the friendship, with the person, in the face of no agreement.

Hmm, a little too much transformation maybe?

Well actually I learned the GOLD whilst assisting in the Young Persons Forum when the young people were asked who was responsible for them having a great life?

  • Mum
  • Dad
  • You

I recall the inquiry between the children was wonderful refreshing, loving and eventually PROFOUND.

They considered that they were 100 % responsible for all their relationships!

Wow, as a 56 year old, I have really engaged in causing this with all my friends, and looking at the sources of my upsets mentioned above, I assert I have mastered great friendships and hey, a mantra I learned in the Team Management and Leadership Program was/is:

“What can I give up to have love be present with this person?” J

How many Friends Really Matter to You?
