HEALTH: The state of being free from illness or injury 25 of 65

HEALTH: The state of being free from illness or injury 25 of 65

Having met the creator of these happiness cards Cheryl Teni; she said, when she was creating the cards, that she had to whittle down the 250 or so ‘words’ that were sources of happiness from the 250 the eventual final number of 65. With that in mind and the context, (read more here), of writing blogs (on the word each card revealed) relating to transformation (read more here) the card HEALTH made me laugh once more!

How can Health be an Access to Transformation?

Well , from my experience in taking on personal development courses through Landmark Worldwide, I recall there were indeed pre-requisites before anyone undertakes any of their courses. One needs to be in good health!

Within the registration (read more here) process, in the documentation provided, it states the following:

For most participants, exploring thoughts and feelings that they have not fully explored before is a useful and positive learning experience. Some participants have found that exploring life’s issues honestly may evoke uncomfortable and unpleasant feelings. For others, the Program may occur as physically, mentally and emotionally seriously distressing. If you are unwilling to encounter any of these powerful experiences in yourself or in others, or if you have any concern about your ability to deal with such experiences, THE MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS WHO ADVISE LANDMARK WORLDWIDE (“OUR ADVISORS”) STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT PARTICIPATE in the Program.

For myself, one of the key distinctions I learned in my Landmark Forum back in October 1993 was the distinction called rackets (read more here). Persistent complaints, noting the costs they have on one’s psyche. Around health, I saw I had a few complaints and hey, if I really got the impact on my mental health, due these annoyances, simple action really did disappear my laments. As a result, I run at the very least, once a week and my intake of sugar is minimal now! OOops.

WHERE ARE YOU AT WITH YOUR HEALTH?

GOALS: An Aim or Desired Result 24 of 65

GOALS: An Aim or Desired Result 24 of 65

With my experience in personal development over the years through Landmark Worldwide, the word “goal” rarely came up in our inquiries, with taking a stand (read more here) and specific measurable results being as close to “goal” as I recall.

For myself, I have been standing for World Peace since the 15 September 1995 when some 20 of us fire breathers performed at the Sydney Opera House, with “world peace” declared in all the press releases I sent. The Channel 10 news crew came down, filmed it for national news and we went global through CNN news too.

From that day onwards, I was a stand for World Peace and on 15th September 2000, I declared “for the next 20 years” on national television. (see 2019 updated version)

“HAH I hear you cry! It’s 2020 already now”

It has been 15 days (blog written 15 January 2020) and , for those who aren’t up to date, the “Sand With A” Line project was launched on 15 September 2019: ONE YEAR TO GO! (and Lucy’s TAKE OFF wish/stand, catch up here) so I have been GENERATING ( read more here ) .

Background

From anywhere from one to 5 or 6 times a week, depending on the season, and since 2005 when Charles Crawshaw moved to Ocean Shores, he has been running on bouncing boots ( see here ) and is a “well known character” of the 4000 homes there . Fairly recently, he started updating his costume with World Peace By 2020 on the backside of his shorts, a World Peace by 2020 cape with “Pass It On!” And “You’re It” tagged onto the symbol and his new backpack now carries nations flags. Once it was: “Ooh you’re the bouncy boot guy” to now people driving by shouting: “ World Peace by 2020!” and “instagramming it”  *

January 12 Sunday : I ran the Romanian flag

(see moving story below)

January 10 Friday : I ran the Canadian flag

I ran this flag to remember the 57 lives ended through Wednesday’s plane crash. Beautifully, during my run, I was able to share with several groups of beach goers and indeed, friends afterwards picked the reason for that flag. Peace be with you all!

January 13 Monday : I ran the Finnish flag

The newly elected 34 year old female leader for Finland is known as the “Jacinda Ardern of the north!  Jacinda is New Zealand’s championing leader (“of the south”…..urm Game of Thrones crew, thank you!) Between them, we’ll have World Peace by Tuesday 15 September 2020 SORTED!

I honoured and shared about her, on my rare Byron Bay Lighthouse run, remarkably having 4 visiting South Koreans recognise the Finnish flag! We chatted about my stand for World Peace and it ended when I said ‘Thank you” in Korean. It received brilliant smiles!

January 12 Sunday : I ran the Romanian flag

For your information and the story of the Romanian flag starts with me declaring that I complete my consecutive Wisdom Unlimited course this Saturday 19 January 2020, with a moment I will CHERISH FOREVER.

Thanks to the Wisdom program last year, I have been running many national flags around my regular Ocean Shores community roads, paths and beaches. I am a well known for connecting these flags with my stand for World Peace.

THE MOMENT happened last Sunday when I ran a Romanian flag , sitting in my purpose built backpack.

The afternoon was sunny and beautiful and South Golden Beach had many Australians enjoying the surf and sand. The wind was a healthy ‘southerly’ meaning my “wave chasing bounce” along the hard sand on the beach had the Romanian flag fly parallel with my southward running direction. With my head down and a great 300 metres of ebbing waves, I sprinted/splashed on my bounce boots ( speed up to 20 kmh). As I ran, I saw and heard people watching, shouting and cheering. Right at the end of my burst of speed, and coming to the end of the 300 metre run, I came upon a group of some 15 Australians. They gave me a cheerful round of applause!

It was the first time I was acknowledged this way. I was moved to tears, as I was present to 15 Australians honouring a human being flying a Romanian Flag . I found out later a few of them wondered what country the flag represented! 🙂 DIALOGUE! WORLD PEACE BY TUESDAY 15 SEPTEMBER 2020 #ITSATUESDAY#WORLDPEACETAKEOFF

GOAL for TUESDAY 15 SEPTEMBER 2020

Well surely a goal can be as lavish and creative as one chooses with likely goals, accidental goals and dreamy goals all being possible? Aaah, you mean a dream grounded in reality? Maybe or it may be a VISION one shares and enrols others into playing for it?

My goal for the GLOBAL HASHTAG GAME called #ITSATUESDAY (wailed by anyone working that day), is that all 195 country’s female leaders go on camera for the WORLD PEACE TAKE OFF PARTIES! PASS IT ON! YOU’RE IT!

Peace be with you all reading this blog today!

WHAT GOAL DO YOU HAVE, for the end of 2020?

*Using the latest information, Charles Crawshaw has bounced/run ONE THIRD of the way of around planet earth and climbed Mt Everest 3 times.

CHANCE: A Possibility of Something Happening 23 of 65

Some of you reading this particular blog know that I am part of the Six Figure Mentors Group which recommended I take on a habit of writing 3 blogs a week on whatever I am passionate about in my life.

Charles Crawshaw: “Personal Development and Learning New Things!”

So having picked the Happiness Card: Chance, and knowing my context (read more here) for writing all these 65 blogs is around transformation (read more here) , the question is:

How does “chance” fit in the world of transformation?

Well given chance is a “possibility of something happening” leaves a wide open book or, in the sense of the Sunday of the Landmark Forum, where your life is finally suggested as a ‘blank canvas’ where you can create anything , surely you make chances that fit into your new visions in life? If one leaves it to chance, the likelihood of your visions happening is wide open.

In my training and development in the Introduction Leader’s program, certainty is really distinguished, where chance is ‘disappeared’. What I found fascinating is when one uses words like “hope” or “try”,which generates no certainty. Next time you hear the words being used, notice the lack of substance or a stance, where one has no confidence in the outcome. Our training really looked at enrollment ( read more here) and registration (read more here) as being very distinct. What was clear was that we got really well trained in not having anything left to chance! Indeed, ‘being cause in the matter’ is a fine tenet I can generate (read more here) whenever I want J I often generate: “Bold Leadership causing the Unimaginable” as an excellent access to making things happen. (see Ceasefire Project)

If chance is the occurrence of events in the absence of any obvious intention or cause, surely that would mean that life is chance personified? Anything can occur at any time by anyone? Perhaps one can make one’s chances the big excuse for anything you wish would happen but hasn’t because you haven’t had the chance??

Personally, I make or take my chances. One of the beautiful outcomes, when one graduates for Landmark Worldwide’s Advanced Course, is that you will always have the ability to generate a new future for yourself that touches, moves and inspires you, leaving nothing up to chance!

WHAT CHANCE WILL YOU TAKE FOR 2020?

Registration: Sign Here! 34 of 36

Lady signing a document with an ink pen
Registration: Sign Here! 34 of 36

Registration: Put information, especially your name, into an official list or record

With this blog series of 36 “words/phrases” that can access self-transformation, it may surprise you, (as it did with me), that the act of registration can be considered an act of transformation.

Firstly, one needs to be ENROLLED in the possibility such that you are touched, moved and inspired by the possibility. If this is the case and a true possibility has arisen, then the next logical step is to REGISTER. Simple really!

Registration and Commitment go hand in hand

One way of demonstrating one’s commitments in life is to register it publically and out loud. For myself, I have developed and shared continually an ever growing and expanding conversation for World Peace by Tuesday 15th September 2020.

How I have registered this commitment is by:-

  1. Continually uploading information to the internet,
  2. Speaking it our loud to my so called ‘originating circle’ (Wisdom Unlimited Course)
  3. Promoting a name badge business where one can register their alignment or stand for “World Peace by Tuesday 15 September 2020” by buying a name badge with this message printed on it, (see BadgeMeUp.com). I

Indeed, registration can develop a form of MEMBERSHIP, which gives access to fulfilling one’s commitments though powerful enrolment. Registration is an effective way of measuring too! At any time, one can observe the number of people registered as an access to how effective one has been about sharing their commitments with their communities.

How large is your membership to the things you are passionate about today?

Registration: The Act of Enrolling

One of the top distinctions of Landmark’s Self Expression and Leadership program (SELP) is “ENROLLMENT” (see Enrolment blog). The value and power of enrollment is that it actually causes new possibilities to be present of others, such that they are inspired, moved and touched by those possibilities.

What was amazing about SELP is that I got trained in enrolling. Indeed, so much so, I enrolled and registered friends and family to learn fire eating in order to gain attention for World Peace through ‘enrolling’ press releases to the Australian Television media. The key to this particular story is that the news media spoke the words “World Peace”, which demonstrates a registration to the idea, as a possibility!

With the phrase “Actions speak louder than words”, you could say that it is another was of asking to register. The action of registering will show everyone you are enrolled in what you are registering for and that you are, at the very least, aligned with this commitment.

Another phrase associated with registering is to ‘put your name on it’. Given my commitment and registration with Six Figure Mentors in July this year, one of the things I have discovered and learned about is the evolution of the ‘attention economy’ ,where people are developing themselves as an AUTHORITY on whatever inspires them. Internet searches are getting more and more sophisticated, so if you have ever ‘put your name on it’ through social media (for instance), people may discover you and your passions in life. Indeed, surely once they have discovered you, it is an opportunity to register them into your commitment? Aahh that’s called a landing page, isn’t it? Sure, if the outcome for the ‘landee’ is for them to register by “putting their name on it”. Eh Caramba!

Where in your life would you like to register your interest?

Generosity: A Clearing for Transformation 33 of 36

Briefcase full of US $100 bills making the picture show abundance
Generosity: A Clearing for Transformation 33 of 36

It is funny whenever I read or hear the words “Generosity”, I think of TIME and MONEY! Where did that come from? Why say these words?

Well, from my experiences in life, I am clear that whenever someone is willing to give their time (or money) to me, I really appreciate their generosity. Given my “happily busy” life, I appreciate whenever someone is willing to spend time with me for a common pursuit or passion. I value time and sure, I generally have financial thoughts that go with time: “Time Is Money” as they say.

Maybe there is more to generosity than just time and money?

Generosity: A willingness to give help or supportespecially more than is usual or expected:

Aaah, well this is where I know I love being generous. With a background in sales and marketing, I love anyone who is willing to be an entrepreneur. Sure it takes guts to ‘go out on your own’ and sure, if you have read the E- Myth by Michael Gerber, when you start a business, you need to be:

  • manager,
  • sales person,
  • accountant,
  • technician
  • computer operator

 etc ……plenty of hats indeed. My contribution to my friends and associates is to support them in fulfilling their dream of running a successful business. I will ask them where their target market is located and then I will come up with 5 ideas of gaining customers, through ingenious, creative and articulate methods.

Stingy : Not Generous or Liberal

This word came up in my Landmark Forum back in 1993.

It was an inquiry, after each break that we had each day. What was remarkable, during the whole long weekend (The course starts Friday), is the courage participants took on the breaks. People came back into the room, got on a microphone, and shared amazing stories of the call they just had with……..” 

I so remember and I will always love humanity for what’s possible. I remember several of my calls to people I love. I called my Mum and Dad on Saturday afternoon,(see script) and got into a dialogue that I have never had with them. I was authentic and shared from my heart. As a result, a whole new world opened up!

If you read my script, you can see I did open up more than I ever done before with mum and dad and it certainly surprised them. One could consider that I had been ‘GENEROUS” with sharing myself with my parents.

‘BEING STINGY’ is the complete opposite and hey, after even having the COURAGE to take on any one of the following:

  • Getting complete with someone
  • Getting back into communication with someone
  • Getting into the world of the other person
  • Getting how you listen through filters (already always listening) that can perhaps hinder what is being said

..etc, it is NO SURPRISE one’s first attempt with ‘the communication’ can occur as ‘stingy’, simply because one is confronted by a new communication that requires the ‘sharing’ of oneself. Authenticity is definitely one access to disappear ‘being stingy’, as it opens oneself to another such that they get the ‘real you’!

Generosity:  The Quality of Being Kind and Generous.

If we are looking at generosity as an access to one’s self-transformation, the inquiry can certainly lead to conversations that make a difference (read blog here) . What I have learned, over the years of my personal development, is to notice how I listen.

If I am busy, pre-occupied and scrutinizing the time being taken in conversing with someone, you could say I am being ‘stingy’ with my time and how I listen. Indeed, and thankfully, I sometimes even address that I have not been listening to the person for the last xx…few minutes, (“essentially that I had switched off”). Integrity restored, the new listening arises as a result!

If I have my ‘being generous’ ears on, then I know that I am focused on making a difference with the person I am talking with, in whatever way I can. I have also discovered that ‘being of service’ is one way one can demonstrate one’s generosity. For instance, whenever I buy a cup of coffee and my action won’t be disruptive, I will take my empty cup to the service area as a thank you, even declaring my gratitude ‘out loud’ to the barista, who has made so many before me!

Where have you been generous recently?

Breakthrough: A Sudden Discovery 31 0f 36

Breakthrough: A Sudden Discovery 31 0f 36

I remember how we used to describe the methodology of how the Landmark Forum works is similar to what scientists do to cause a breakthrough. They look at their subject from various points of view and then, all of a sudden, something they never saw coming occurs and a breakthrough is declared by the scientists. It is the same methodology used in the Landmark Forum. For the 3 days and one evening syllabus, these are the inquiry points:

  • Already Always Listening
  • The Hidden Power of Context
  • The Vicious Circle
  • Racket: The Payoff and the Cost
  • The Illusion of Someday: Rethinking Possibility
  • The Myth of Is, Because, and I
  • Distinguishing: Opening New Worlds
  • Freedom from Anxiety
  • How Identities Get Constructed
  • The Pervasive Influence of the Past
  • Change vs. Transformation
  • Language as an Access to Power
  • The Nature of Choice
  • New Possibilities, Breakthrough Results, and a Quick Review
  • Transformation as a Way of Living
  • Dealing Powerfully with Breakdowns

For myself, when I participated back in October 1993, I recall being surprised, excited, saddened, happy throughout the weekend, as each inquiry revealed new views of my life. Indeed, the methodology is designed to reveal my BLINDSPOTS in my life: What I didn’t know that I didn’t know!

My biggest breakthrough came when I called Mum and Dad on the Saturday of my Landmark Forum (read the breakthrough here)

Breakthrough: Until One is Committed

One of the most revealing pieces of training I have received, whilst participating in Landmark Worldwide programs, is learning how and when breakthroughs occur.

Firstly, I needed to distinguish my commitments and passions in life, getting clear on my stands and actions around each of them. Once established, I then needed to be aware, whenever a ‘breakdown’ occurred, that the breakdown always and only occurred because of these commitments and passions in life. Otherwise, no such breakdowns would ever happen!

An Example.

Today, Friday 23 November 2019 marks a promise where, (last week), I said I would have caught up and completed “all 36 words and phrases for transformation” blogs, shared with us in my current Wisdom Unlimited course running in Australia and New Zealand.

I revoke this promise and re-commit to completing the last 5 by Friday 30 November 2019. PHEW!

(The breakthrough is that I would normally not share this breakdown publically!)

Existence: State of Living 30 of 36

Existence: State of Living 30 of 36

Many of you know I am participating in my second consecutive Wisdom Unlimited course run by Landmark Worldwide down here in Australia. During the course, 36 words/phrases were shared, where we could choose any one of them and take on as an initiative over the months of the course to inquire; Existence is one such word.

Looking from my life and where existence has shown up in a transformative way, I can see that firstly I had to look at how I automatically operated so I was ‘unlovable’ (see more here) and a ‘failure’ (see more here). Looking back, I saw I had ‘existence’ structures that held those thoughts ‘as the truth’ for me.

UNLOVABLE

One existence structure was located in my thoughts. I so clearly remember my ‘reactions’ whenever Cathy, my girlfriend for over 4 years (I was aged 25 – 29 years old), said ‘I love you!” My immediate thought each time was to say to myself:

  • ‘How can you love me?”’
  • “I don’t believe you!”
  • “You hate it when I kiss other girls and you hate it when I get drunk!”

These automatic existence thoughts reinforced my thought that Cathy could never really love me, (I completed with Cathy in my Landmark Forum apologising for being a ‘righteous jerk’ in our relationship.

FAILURE

Several existence structures for me “being a failure” was revealed when I participated in the Communication Course: Access to Power,(read more here) learning I had several existence structures that ‘displayed me as a failure’.

Existence: Structures that Support

What has opened up for me, in this Wisdom Unlimited Course between weekends 4 and 5, is my inquiry into the stages of development or existence of futures. At any one time, I can look at whatever project I am working on, and look for existence structures that support the stage my project is operating in.

Indeed one can make a whole list of ways of looking at what support structures can help you move one stage of development to another.

  • Phone calls
  • Emails
  • Websites
  • Diaries
  • Displays
  • Team Members
  • Conversations
  • Stand
  • Tools and Practices

These are all ways to look at one’s project and see where actions are taken with any one of these; and much more can move the project to the next stage of development.

Having taken World Peace By 2020, as one project I want to work on, in this Wisdom Unlimited program, I do indeed love existence structures to support my stand and promote the project (see wp2020.com and QueensPeace.com).

What Existence Structures Empower You?

Unreasonable Request: Magic Happens 29 of 36

As I am coming to the end of my blogs on 36 phrases that can access transformation, I note that there was a similar inquiry into transformation with the phrase “Being Unreasonable” where indeed I do share an unreasonable request that had me make international news in the name of World Peace!

I have learned the nature about unreasonable requests. It is that the outcome comes in one of three possible responses:

  1. YES
  2. NO
  3. COUNTER OFFER

Unreasonable: Beyond the Limits of Acceptability or Fairness

If transformation of oneself is empowered through “unreasonable requests”, then going “BEYOND the limits of Acceptable” conjures up a new imagination of which one can be?!

Who can you be?

How about:

“Bold Leadership Causing the Unimaginable” BLCTU

Before I share, please know this ‘BLCTU future’ is not copyrighted, so please TRY IT ON and pass it on, especially in the name of World Peace by TUESDAY 15 September 2020: Pass It On! You’re It! #ITSATUESDAY

It was during my first Introduction Leader’s Program (ILP) , where for 6 months, as a body of some 10 Sydney centre participants, we took on being this future (BLCTU) individually and as a team around the Darlinghurst, Sydney centre in 1995. Sure we caused some great outcomes within the centre and it was the projects that truly HAD ME LIVE ANEW!

24 September 1993 :

Juan Antonio Samaranch, (International Olympic Committee President) televised quote: “...and the winner is…. SYDNEY!”

Charles: “Wow Sydney is hosting the 2000 Olympics!”

I was standing with a friend in Circular Quay when it was announced. I remember “oh so clearly” promising my friend Greg Box that I would help with the opening ceremony using my fire breathing as the access! ( I was trained in 1989 ).

1995 ILP: Using the context written above ( see context blog ), you can see that the future “Bold Leadership Causing the Unimaginable” would impact that promise.

  • I set up the Ceasefire project: “The Causing of World Peace through the use of FIRE”.
  • I ‘press released’ to all 5 Australian television news stations asking them to film our World Peace stand.
  • I called the Sydney Opera House and laid the foundations for a “Setting off a World Record” on their famous Opera House Stairs. I asked the Guinness Book of Records to document it.
  • I asked fellow participants in the course to learn the art of fire-eating : Fakir.
  • I asked the Sydney Olympic Committee to include us in the opening ceremony,
  • I asked that the 15 September 1995 be well broadcasted.

My point above is that I was truly operating in a world of BEING UNREASONABLE making bold requests all over the place, which caused the remarkable news story for World Peace. (see “Live News” video 5 years after)

Request: An Act of Asking Formally for Something

Aaah, how strong was my propensity that I will ‘do it myself’; knowing it will get done versus relying on anyone else. “Fiercely independent” was definitely one discovery I learned in my Landmark Forum (more here).

From there, I participated in the  Team Management and Leadership Program (TMLP) run by Landmark Worldwide. I learned a new way of expanding my capacity of leadership by not being there! I made requests!

Following on from the story above around fire breathers, I taught participants for this TMLP course Fire Breathing too. I requested they return to Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, Auckland and Christchurch and teach more breathers and then hold a fire show for World Peace in their respective city. I believe only Brisbane and Christchurch did not honour my request through numbers or no trainer available.

Certainly one can say that perhaps the majority of humanity wants to contribute to society in one shape or form, so whenever a request is made, the receiver has an opportunity to help. What I have learned is to ask more often and be continually surprised when people act or respond above or beyond my expectations! So here is my unreasonable request to you as a reader.

Please take a stand to cause:

World Peace by Tuesday 15 September 2020

by whatever means possible and Pass It On?

That was certainly the question that opened up for me after my Landmark Forum in October 1993. Having dwelt with the idea to consider that “life is empty and meaningless, and it is empty and meaningless that it is empty and meaningless”, I was left with an exciting thought: A NEW CHARLES!

Children: Our Future

I love children. My new self-expression in 2019 is definitely based around children.

Here are  2 moments that IMPACTED my stand for WORLD PEACE BY 2020 this year.

  1.  “Having asked me why I loved talking about World Peace so often”, Reuben (my neighbour’s son; aged 10) came up with a clever “TAG” playground game, where children can run around and tag each other shouting: “World Peace by 2020: Pass It On! You’re It!”. It is such a game so worth playing; don’t you think? Imagine school playgrounds around the world playing “this very” game? #WP2020#PASSITION#YOUREIT
  • “Having asked 12 of Lucy’s same-aged girlfriends, (who were playing a treasure hunt for her birthday), on the famous Byron Bay main beach here in Australia, to perform to our tv cameras, this is what happened:

All the girls put on some bouncing boots and grabbed national flags, including the top 5 nations who make arms:

  • Russia
  • USA
  • CHINA
  • FRANCE
  • GERMANY

IN UNISON and ON CAMERA

The girls SHOUTED:
“WORLD PEACE BY 2020: PASS IT ON! YOU’RE IT!

Then we sang “Happy Birthday Lucy, Happy birthday Lucy, Happy birthday dear Lucy, Happy birthday to you.”

Then we gave three cheers for Lucy; “Hip Hip Hooray; Hip Hip Hooray; Hip Hip Hooray!”

All the while, dear Lucy was surrounded by us and holding onto her flagpole tightly. The camera reveals she is self-conscious of our acknowledgment through our song and cheers so, right after our last hooray, she shouted:

WORLD PEACE TAKE OFF!

Birth of My Self Expression around Children

I assisted for Landmark’s Young Person’s Forum and Teen Forum around 1994 and I discovered, personally, that this was one of the most beautiful aspects of Landmark Worldwide personal development courses. Indeed, the following prose is the source of my inspiration, into the world of children.

Notes On An Unhurried Journey

When we adults think of children, there is a simple truth which we ignore; childhood is not preparation for life; childhood is life. A child isn’t getting ready to live; a child is living. The child is constantly confronted with the nagging question: “What are you going to be?” Courageous would be the youngster who, looking the adult squarely in the face, would say, “I’m not going to be anything; I already am.”

We adults would be shocked by such an insolent remark, for we have forgotten, if indeed we ever knew, that a child is an active participating and contributing member of society from the time he is born. Childhood isn’t a time when he is moulded into a human who will then live life; he is a human who is living life. No child will miss the zest and joy of living unless these are denied him by adults who have convinced themselves that childhood is a period of preparation.

How much heartache we would save ourselves if we would recognize the child as a partner with adults in the process of living, rather than always viewing him as an apprentice. How much we would teach each other… adults with the experience and children with the freshness. How full both our lives could be. 

A little child may not lead us, but at least we ought to discuss the trip with him; for, after all, life is his and her journey too.

  – Professor T. Ripaldi

Self Expression: How, where and when?

Great question!

When I look to see where and when I am fully expressed, I have noticed the following:

  • That I love whatever I am engaged in at the time.
  • That I have so much passionate evidence for the matter at hand.
  • That an observer is left with little doubt about my passion for the matter at hand.
  • That I am unstoppable about the stands I have declared in my life making me fully self expressed as a result.

The big question is HOW DOES ONE DISCOVER ONE’S Self Expression? I have found that it is all about asking yourself profound questions about your life!

What do you enjoy in life?

What do you love about your life?

What lights you up when you are with your friends and family?

Around any work you do, are you able to say joyously: I can’t believe I am getting paid for this!?

Consider that if you follow your heart and passions in life, you will be fully self expressed!

Question is: What is your FULL SELF EXPRESSION?

POSSIBILITY: If No Transformation occurs, what happens? 24 0f 36

Possibility: A Thing That May Happen or Be The Case.

Whilst it may sound ‘way to simple’ and it isn’t the truth anyway, my participation with Landmark Worldwide continually comes across a fork in the road.

Cynicism, Resignation, and Complacency versus Possibility.

Cynicism versus Scepticism: What’s the Difference?

Cynicism is defined as an inclination to believe that people are motivated purely by self-interest so you would consider that any allowance of communication will be tainted purely  because the listener already has this thought: “Nothing in it for me.”

As for scepticism, it is defined as an attitude that shows you doubt whether something is true or useful. This keyword “useful’, is again located around whether there is “something in it for me.”

So perhaps I can say that a person who is cynical generally has little faith in others; whereas a person who is skeptical is more likely to put in the appropriate research before believing what they are told.

Resignation: The Evidence for Anything Else is Nil.

It is interesting, in my journey with Landmark Worldwide, that my discovery of my thought of being a failure (see video) would produce evidence for resignation. Here are some examples of my resignation:

  1. I so remember trying to be picked for the top tier teams in rugby union, for both London Scottish and Sydney University, yet always ending up in the lower yet ‘very social’ teams.
  2. I also remember trying to get picked in management roles for sales teams in Sydney but simply ending up as a top sales performer with my team of one.
  3. I also was so resigned about being in a loving and lasting relationship. After Cathy (4 years), my girlfriends lasted for 3-6 months and never as long or as close as when I was with Cathy. I so remember the sense of being heartbroken, after we split, and I was very sad/depressed for 6 months, until I started dating once more. The first few girlfriends didn’t stand a chance, as my heart was damaged, and I remember saying to myself that I will never let myself be that vulnerable again!

Complacency: Being OK with No Action

Complacency is defined as a feeling of smug or uncritical satisfaction with oneself or one’s achievements. For myself, I have discovered that any inaction on my behalf means that I am not enrolled with the opportunity at hand. I rarely sit idly if I have taken interest in something. What I have observed, over the years, is a sense that complacency is perhaps a polite word for saying one is lazy!

“Why should I?”

”Who cares anyway?”

POSSIBILITY: An Access to Transformation

It is no surprise when one observes young children and ‘see and hear’ them being “full of possibility”. Interestingly, and perhaps no surprise, you could say we gather evidence, after each year, to diminish possibility, such that we do end up being resigned, cynical and complacent about life. I was aged 30 when I completed my Landmark Forum in October 1993.After 3 days, a world was created for me revealing my life was a “blank canvas”, where my past was truly put in my past (where it belongs) and that I was able to stand for a future that touched moved and inspired me, by that future! As mentioned in the “Nature of Choice” of day 3 (Sunday) ,the world of Unlimited Possibilities is truly at hand.

World Peace by Tuesday 15 September 2020, as my possibility!
