GETTING OFF IT!- An Access to SOMETHING NEW!( 4 of 36)

Two people getting off it by jumping

When you can recall times where you were STUCK, or you were being POSITIONAL about anything in your life, consider that this ‘FIXED WAY OF BEING”  LIMITS what is possible for you. How many times have you ‘held your ground’, ‘put up your defences’ or simply just wanted ‘to be right’? What is it like? How does it feel? Have you noticed the amount of FREEDOM you have when you are this way?

I remember when I participated in the Landmark Forum back in 1993; this inquiry was introduced to us on Friday: It was called RACKETS! They used to describe it as ‘a way of doing or having plus a persistent complaint ‘and wow, did I have a few!

 “I never have enough time!”,

 “I never have enough money!” and

“No one understands me!”

were all complaints I had with myself with so much proof, you would find it hard to argue with me! It was fascinating for me, as I could so easily JUSTIFY and GIVE EVIDENCE for each of these three” rackets” mentioned above.

“Look at how busy I am?”

 “Check out my bank account” and

“Do I have to repeat myself?” were all comments I would to say to myself or even out loud!

WHAT IS THE COST      (of these persistent complaints)

Great question: Having dwelt in this inquiry and having now distinguished that I know these are ‘fixed ways of being’, I have also learned what it costs me,( to have and honour these complaints  that  I have had with myself!).

  • Love
  • Happiness
  • Joy
  • Full Self Expression
  • Freedom
  • Vitality

are all words that spring to mind. In the course, I really discovered the IMPACT these conversations made on myself, my family and my friends. Yikes……but how often did I want to be right? How often did I dominate a conversation by being so set in my ways! It was such an eye-opener!

GETTING OFF IT

Hah, the beauty of THIS REVEAL is I can now choose to ‘stand down’!

I can distinguish my persistent complaint and TAKE ACTION! Whoa…..what does that look like for you now Charles? Well this ‘distinction based training’ really has opened up a whole new world where my righteousness is not required. Taking stands, being in action and getting off it are all accesses I have today to create A NEW WAY OF BEING! Maybe the continual PRACTICE of GETTING OFF IT is an access to the TRANSFORMATION for YOU where LOVE, JOY and HAPPINESS are all consequences that result in this skill!

PARTICIPATION – “On The Court” or “In The Stands” (3 of 36)

PARTICIPATION – “On The Court” or “In The Stands” (3 of 36)

One of the “Transformation words” I am discovering is the word: Participation. Defined as “the action of taking part in something” has myself marvel at my level of participation in my communities. How often do I choose to not ‘get involved’ and operate from the sidelines with thoughts/feelings and comments; which are all separate from the actual action.

“Being On The Court”

When one is ‘on the court’ , one is really engaging in whatever arises, with the actions taken being because one is participating. There is never any doubt, when one is participating, about the results that are caused. “Lights, Camera, Action” is definitely an invite for joining in and taking participation to the next level.

“In the Stands”

A classic inquiry in my Landmark Forum about being “in the stands”. How often do we ‘sit on our hands’ and refrain from getting on the court and getting amongst it! The relative ease one has to ‘comment’ from the stands,( with one’s thoughts and opinions) makes no difference if no action is personally taken. Consider it is often MUCH EASIER to be in the stands versus on the court!

Consider when one:

  • gets involved,  
  • takes part, 
  • engages, 
  • contributes,
  • shares, 
  • associates, 
  • partakes, 
  • joins in

life itself, you are taking on transformation for yourself and it may even impact others! Now how cool is that to know, and therefore get off the stands and get on the court declaring: I AM IN!

What are you currently PARTICIPATING IN, THAT YOU SO MUCH ENJOY?

ACKNOWLEDGMENT AS A POWER : PASS IT ON!

ACKNOWLEDGMENT AS A POWER ; PASS IT ON!

How often do you say THANK YOU” How often do you go ‘out of your way’ to really acknowledge someone for making a BIG or SMALL DIFFERENCE in your LIFE? Is it often or rarely said? Good to notice, and hey, consider there is “NO RIGHT ANSWER“. However, you may discover the next time you open your mouth to PUBLICALLY ANNOUNCE (versus saying it ‘in your head’), your APPRECIATION of the person who has helped you in some way, that MIRACLES ARISE?!

Only last weekend, 10 – 11 August, this lady (who lives in India), moved mountains to get these pictures done! I assert my acknowledgments certainly encouraged her with some enthusiastic replies!

I invite you to JUMP RIGHT IN and give out some acknowledgments. After I did the Landmark Forum in 1993, I saw that I was fairly ‘ungenerous’ for letting my parents know how grateful I was for the life they had given me. I am so grateful I learned to acknowledge my father, (for something so special to me as a child) before Dad finally succumbed to cancer in 2005. He successfully survived three “chemos” and made a good eleven years before he finally let go.

THANK YOU

What I said was “Dad, I really wanna say thank you so much for choosing “The Trilogy of the Lord Of the Rings” to read to my brother and I,  as a bedtime story for all those many many months! I so remember looking forward to climbing into bed and waiting to hear the next episode for Frodo’s adventures. Dad, thank you for the time and patience you put into it each night. It really impacted my imagination in oh so many ways.” Bless my English father, after hearing these words simply and modestly replied: “ Son, that’s what every father does!” PASS IT ON!
