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?

Laughter: An Expression of Amusement 8 0f 65

Laughter: An Expression of Amusement 8 0f 65

Coming for the context (read more here) of transformation and the word Laughter, I can share that one of the common phrases shared around Landmark graduates is to consider that if one can’t see the humour in it, then consider one is ‘on it’! In other words, one is stuck with a fixed pint of view.

One of the biggest ‘takeaways’ from the Landmark Forum that many people always remember, is the distinction Landmark calls Rackets:

A way of ‘doing or having’ plus a persistent complaint (see DAY 1 on the syllabus here).

What was interesting, when we inquired into this distinction, was that the complaints like:

  • I never have enough time
  • I never have enough money
  • I always end up second best

Were ‘not personal’ and indeed “common” persistent complaints.

What are the costs of these complaints and then what are the pay offs of these complaints?

COST (about the complaint)        PAY OFF

  • Happiness                                   Being Right (about the complaint)
  • Joy                                             Make others wrong (about the complaint)
  • Aliveness                                    Dominate or avoid domination (about the complaint)
  • Power                                         Get to Justify (about the complaint)
  • Satisfaction

Wow, so I saw how often I would rather ‘be right’ about ‘never having enough money’ :

“Look at my bank account!”

Which cost me happiness, joy, aliveness etc

If I was rigorous with all my persistent complaints, I so discovered my propensity to BEING RIGHT!

“Urm Charles, isn’t that a natural way of being for humans?”

Maybe and sure and yet if the costs are so great, surely it is time to GET OFF IT?!

MUCH LAUGHTER!


“There is the gold!”

DESCRIBE THE LAST TIME YOU HAD A GREAT LAUGH!

Air: Express Publicly 7 0f 65

Air: Express Publicly 7 0f 65

This ‘happiness card’ may allude to ‘that which you breathe’ and ‘being grateful’ for that and from a transformational context (read more here) , perhaps I will share how AIRING one’s thoughts and feelings allows for contribution from others.

In my current Wisdom Unlimited Course, we have inquired into the difference between monologue (in your head) and dialogue (out loud with others). When one “airs” ones thoughts, it opens up new worlds. We have noticed that all monologues make no difference as it is internal, within oneself.

The most notable and fairly recent AIRING happened through Instagram:

It was a sunny afternoon when I was running toward a car of 4 teenage boys. As I approached, I noticed that one was filming me with his phone. As I got close to him, I AIRED ‘World Peace by 2020!”

I thought a little about the moment, and it took 2 days before an excited friend called me:

  • “Charlie, you have done it!”
  • “What?”
  • “Your World Peace message has been shared 100,000 times” ( see video here)
  • “Wow!”

Ever since I aired my stand, I have been captured regularly ( see another here) and nowadays, people actually shout these words back at me as I run around Ocean Shores!

“Wow, WORLD PEACE BY TUESDAY 15 SEPTEMBER 2020: PASS IT ON: YOU’RE IT!”

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO AIR TODAY?

Future: Something is going to happen 6 0f 65

Future: Something is going to happen 6 0f 65

Aaah this is certainly powerfully addressed in many of Landmark Worldwide’s personal development courses. I participated in what Landmark calls the “curriculum for living”. It consists of 4 courses:

  • The Landmark Forum
  • The Forum “In Action” Seminar program
  • The Advanced Course
  • The Self Expression and Leadership Program (SELP)

For myself, having dealt with my PAST in the Landmark Forum and created a FUTURE in the Advanced Course, I invented a future called “Love expressed through Leadership, Inspiration, Energy and Enthusiasm!” (read more here)

I will always remember this phrase among Landmark friends:

“All you have to do is put the past in the past (where it belongs) and stand for a future that touches, moves and inspires you! Then your job is to enrol your communities to relate to you AS THAT FUTURE such that the course promise is fulfilled, (should you complete the Self Expression and Leadership program).

“You will be living a life which you love and living it powerfully!”

Well this future has been fulfilled for me having undertaken SELP twice with the Ceasefire Project” coming out of my first go in 1995 and the Queens Peace project in my recent course in 2018. (see QueensPeace.com )

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD FOR YOU?

Smile: An Indication of Happiness 5 0f 65

Smile: An Indication of Happiness 5 0f 65

Below is one of my favourite quotes introduced to me through Landmark Worldwide, which I assert, will have you consider a smile, at the very least?! J

“True Joy In Life”

“This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it what I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”

George Bernard Shaw

I tend to smile often when I read ‘SPLENDID TORCH’ and hey, that may be because of my fire breathing background!

From a context (read more here) of transformation for the word; smile, I assert that much of the work I have learned over the years with these personal development courses has had me ‘smile in recognition’. As ontology is the study of being, it is no wonder I smile often, because I so see myself in others and hey, I am not the only one with these thoughts!

If the ‘sharing of oneself’ is one access to transformation, then often, after I have shared, a smile forms across my lips, as I am so present to what I have shared. Indeed, perhaps a simple smile provides an easy access to being happy. In Landmark, we joke, “ahh you have told your face you are happy!” Often, when someone says they are fine, we will quip:

“Well can you inform your face then!?”

A smile across your face I am imagining right now, as I find it amusing and I trust you do to?!

WHAT MAKES YOU SMILE?

Freedom: The Power to Be as One Wants 4 0f 65

Freedom: The Power to Be as One Wants 4 0f 65

I started my personal development in October 1993 starting with the Landmark Forum. It started on Friday morning and ended on Tuesday Evening. During the course, we looked at you of life from many points of view (see syllabus) and sure my big one was the discovery that I thought I was unlovable,(see story here). What were definitely clear for me, as a declared and happy result were a new sense of SELF and a FREEDOM to BE!

For myself, I have found it useful to discover “the constraints of the past” that have been stopping me from pursuing what is important to me. From discovering when I started being “a failure” at age 10 ( see video share) to discovering being “unlovable” as a ‘thrown way’ of being, it now has me develop mastery is distinguishing these ways of being as ‘past attacks’ I say jokingly.

What this allows for is a very new sense of FREEDOM where anything is possible. I know that the only thing that ever stops me is me! How often does one need to “get out of the way of oneself” to have NEW THINGS show up!

The ‘ever pervasive past’ is a quip we used to use when sharing about breakdowns in our lives, where our past would show up! The mastery of these so called ‘past attacks’ certainly gave me a whole new world of freedom.

“Charles, can you be quiet please?”

Means “Charles, can you be quiet please” versus my old thoughts like “they don’t like me”, “They don’t love me” “I am not important” etc…these were some of the examples of my past thoughts impacting how I listened. You can ikmagine the freedom from those thoughts as being truly liberating!… Aaah for such freedom forever maybe?

Where in your life would you like some Freedom?

Visualize: Form a mental image 3 of 65

Visualize: Form a mental image 3 of 65

This is a great exercise to access happiness, as it happens inside your head! Creativity at the ready, one can really lift one’s senses to new heights of joy if one’s imagination is loving and joyful.

I remember; when Juan Antonio Samaranch announced that the winner is “Sydney” for hosting the 2000 Olympic Games, I visualized a large fire show for the ceremony. I had been fire breathing since 1989, so I had already distinguished how spectacular flames can be, when blown by a human being. I was participating in the Self Expression and Leadership program ,when I started the Ceasefire project, so my visualizations for fire shows (see pictures) , developed over the years, until we got the Olympic’s “Bush Fire” segment.

Visualize: Transforming One’s Reality

In the world of ‘Ontology’ , (the study of human being), I really had a great chance to alter my reality, when I got present to the world I was living in, during my Communication program courses run by Landmark Worldwide.

I so remember visializing living with ‘WATER VIEWS’ , given, at the time, I was living in one of the most beautiful harbour cities of the world: Sydney, Australia. Indeed, I really took on looking at the views I “woke up to and went to bed with”, as new ways to DISPLAY goodness in one’s life. As a result, I altered my reality in this new ‘habour’ domain (read story here).

WHAT VISUALIZATION INSPIRES YOU TODAY?

(I invite you to SHARE as VIVID as you like!)

Positive: Constructive, optimistic, or confident. 2 of 65

So here is a POSITIVE STORY that happened just now with the SOURCE of the following:

Happiness Oracle Cards by Cheryle Teni

#ITSATUESDAY: 3 December 2019.

Charles Crawshaw: I called Cheryl Teni today, requesting permission for the following:

Charles: “May I take EVERY ONE of your 65 HAPPINESS CARDS as a WORD INQUIRY, and write a blog on each? I will be coming from my INITIATIVE of “GENERATING”, (read more here).

“For each of the 65 cards, I will bring the following context (read more here)”:

Context: “A World of Transformation”

Cheryle Teni: “YES! That will be amazing”
Charles: “Woohoo!”

Our conversation (or DIALOGUE read more here) had her share her passion for her cards, and she even said she wanted to go and ‘door knock’ her community about the power of her cards and herself as a great channel for happiness through her readings! Excellent and wonderful Cheryle!

If you buy a set of her Happiness Cards for AUD$50 (includes postage Australia), you will be delightfully charmed by the choice of PHOTO made for each HAPPY WORD.….beautiful, thoughtful, spectacular, loving are a few words that spring to mind; oh, and “Australia” in all its GLORY! J

I invited Cheryl and/or her daughter/family/friends to “POST” a REPLY to each of the 65 words she designed, at the bottom of each blog so we will have a ‘LIVE FEED” to the source…how much POSITIVE HAPPINESSS can there be??!

As I reviewed the cards….. I burst out laughing with “Crazy”, mmmed with “Peace” , awwwed with “Nature”, and if Precious is my first blog word, then CHERYLE TENI: You are a PRECIOUS WOMAN bringing happiness where sadness has been sleeping! Thank you for being in my life!

How positive have you been recently?

Precious: Of Great Value 1 of 64

Precious: Of Great Value 1 of 64

As mentioned in my last bog, I am nearing the end of this year’s Wisdom Course Unlimited here in Australia where I took on an inquiry into the transformation word: Generating.

What has been remarkable about this tool and practice (we have an online gathering every Monday night for 2 hours) is that I have discovered that there have been moments where I have ‘faltered’ in knowing what to do. It is WHEN this distinction happens; I suddenly look at ‘GENERATING SOMETHING’. What has me smile is that often, I am diving into the UNKNOWN. Perhaps, indeed, it is because I have NO PAST (as reference) so no wonder I falter!

Six Figure Mentors: 3 Blogs or Vlogs a week

When I joined Six Figure Mentors in July this year, they suggested taking on writing 3 blogs per week for at least 6 months picking out a niche that inspired me.

NICHE:                   ONTOLOGY: The Study of Being

Yes, ever since I started my personal development journey in October 1993, I have been fascinated about the inquiry into what it is to be human. As a result, and thankful I am engaged in a “transformation course” right now, I have found writing blogs around this context (read more here), has flowed well. What has surprised me is that the thought that this will be fairly easy was misplaced! J

I am currently 13 blogs behind and if I make ‘MY CATCH UP’ by this Friday, my integrity (read more here) is restored!

Hmm, well what I have ‘generated’ in address this breakdown is by consulting my ‘recently bought’ Happiness Cards made by Cheryle Teni. I met her recently at a wellness expo in Ocean Shores, New South Wales, Australia, where I live. She was wonderful and engaging, proudly declaring that her cards impacted many who; had or is going through, trauma in their lives.

No trauma here, I am glad to say; so these oracle cards have been a wonderful consult, on days where the cards call me! The cards now call me for the next 63 times to go through each and GENERATE a transformative message as a possibility!

Great Value: An Opening to Share

I know that one of the key distinctions, that human beings perhaps are not thrown in doing easily is acknowledgement (read more here)!

  • How precious is your family or friends to you?
  • What value do they add to your life?
  • What do you appreciate about them being in your life?

I have discovered that you can never be “mislead or disappointed” if you generate acknowledgement. I sometimes go to work and let my boss know how much I appreciate him, his business and the contribution he is to my life. I recall asking him once what he liked about his life.

He replied the fact he has run a successful business for 20 years, that he is able to provide well for his family, that he had no debts and that his balance in lifestyle includes being able to attend his daughter’s ‘after school’ activities on many occasions.

Who, in your life right now, do you declare as PRECIOUS?
