Getting Comfortable with your Life’s Purpose

purpose-with-others

When you finally glimpse the purpose of why you are here , the greatness of it might scare you. Then you might be tempted to question whether its real and whether YOU of all people, are really meant to carry it out.

Through questioning and doubting you can return to your comfort zone and live out a life that can feel more grounded and familiar and perhaps even more culturally acceptable.

What you have to realize is that where you are going is always at the front of what currently is, and in some cases might be intended for life on a different timeline from what even exists today, giving life to the expression ‘being ahead of your time’.

Sometimes what you are creating is meant to be experienced by others and the greatest joy for you is in the journey of creating it, even if you never get to see its completion.

There comes a time when you must stop questioning, using energy as a guide for what you must do and apply faith in your actions, trusting that the validation will show up in the form of many little signs as a consequence of being on the path of pure action.

Levels of Execution

Execution-Ideas-Strategy

Execution can really be boiled down into 5 main approaches:

#1 – Planning but not doing – easy challenge
#2 – Doing without prioritizing – medium challenge
#3 – Doing the right things at the right time in the wrong way – medium challenge
#4 – Doing the right things at the right time in the right way – hard challenge
#5 – Doing the right things at the right time in the right way, with SPEED – the greatest challenge

The first three levels of execution are usually the result of fear, poor planning or lack of capital and/or creativity. Level 4 execution is something that most teams can be proud of. Level 5 execution takes a whole new level of awareness, willingness and passion. It requires high energy, high trust and high standards. It requires pushing beyond levels you even knew you were capable of.

The difference between executing at a level 4 versus a level 5 can be enormous. From the field of sports to business to life itself – most of the rewards go to those who are clear about the right actions in a given environment and move fast in their execution. Perhaps the single biggest factor between species that go extinct and those that evolve to live another day is the SPEED at which they can adapt to their environments.

The Dynamics of E.G.O

Ego Dynamics

When you look at your body, your Ego’s sense of self appears relatively stable and unchanging. For example, only changing as you change clothes, gain or lose weight, etc. But the reality is the Ego self expands or contracts a great deal even from moment to moment. Experiencing pleasure on inflation from things like praise, material gain, higher status and association with fame, fortune, power, etc. It experiences pain from the opposite, insults, material loss, lower status, associated with outcasts, poverty, powerlessness, etc.

It is often more painful for the Ego to first expand and then shrink, than it is to simply remain small and unchanged. This is why many people fear taking action – better to remain unchanged than to risk a contracting concept of self.

Protecting the self image is such a vital part of the Ego’s survival that it has built in ‘defense mechanisms’ to protect it. Any time the Ego feels threatened it reacts. These reactions can show up in a variety of emotions and behaviors, but the goal is always the same: maintain or expand the concept of self, avoid shrinking at all costs. The infinite variety of human behaviors can be explained by this simple Ego dynamic!

Now here’s where it gets interesting. When you understand the Ego dynamic and when you can observe it WHILE if is happening (all the time), you then have the awareness to step outside of it.

What this means is two fold:
1 – You are not the Ego
2 – You do not have to suffer with it

You can play with it, love it and enjoy the avatar that you experience life through – without getting caught up in the drama! When you believe you are your Ego, you get caught up in the emotion of protecting it. But when you know you are so much more than that, you are liberated to grow your spirit, in spite of your Ego fears about life. Ultimately the same dynamic of expansion and contraction is present in our spiritual selves as well: our Souls want to expand and avoid contraction. But often the way we grow in Spirit contradicts the Ego. What the Ego wants may be bad for spiritual growth and what the Soul needs may cause the Ego to shrink. In fact, Soul growth often requires that our old Ego gets destroyed entirely at first! .. And then rebuilt from consciousness. The Ego will resist this process to the death – literally it will feel as though it is dying. We are talking about an Ego dynamic that will do almost anything to preserve or expand its concept of self. Look over the history of the human drama – wars, murders, theft, etc. the Ego is playing a very serious game and does not give up power and control very easily.

Step outside of the Ego and you can watch it expand and contract like the wind. Watch as someone insults it or it loses money or makes a mistake. Love it through this process. Now watch as it glorifies itself in praise, material gain and the validation of others. Love it through the process.

The Ego is a vehicle through which your Soul gets polished into a state of love, the only thing that is real and enduring in this entire universe. By looking upon the Ego as a child in need of love, you can fill it up. And by looking at all humans as victims of their own Ego until they too can step outside of their own Ego dynamics, you can give them love and fill them up too!

Then when we have all stripped down our Egos, and burned up all the fear driven structures and rebuilt our Egos on a strong foundation of love, confidence, happiness, positivity, zest for a high value life and contribution – we can start working in harmony and raising the energy of the planet. Until this becomes the new standard for Ego construction-especially during childhood, we will continue to have a planet dominated by Ego games.
But now you can wake up my friends. Get off the emotional roller coaster of expanding and contracting like the wind within the limiting and needy confinements of your Ego’s fragile concept of self.

Wake up inside the living shell and allow your awareness to expand beyond its walls. Use the heart as a home base and platform for this expansion of awareness energy. Allow the old Ego to surrender and implode into itself inside of this new heart energy. It will be scary at first. As you will no longer have a strong sense of identity, other than as an aware, loving and growing Soul. Then from this freedom you can reconstruct the Ego in any way that you wish. Just know that this time you are in control of its construction and that its past is nothing more than a series of events on its timeline that may no longer have much relevance to the newly constructed self.

Keep in mind that the Ego will still have its old dynamics of seeking expansion and preservation above all else, resisting contraction and feeling bad when it does get smaller. But if you maintain your awareness through it, you will find yourself amused and curious as your Ego goes about its day, occasionally suffering through the human drama.. But you will not be part of it.

And when you look upon another human being you will not see the physical shells constructed by their ancient DNA of this planet, you will see into their eyes and connect with their Heart and Soul and for a moment, if you allow yourselves, you will be connected through heart energy.
The Ego usually perceives this kind of eye contact as either a threat or sexual advance and it can be a confusing energy at first.. But with practice our perception of this energy can be refined and we will embrace this new way of seeing and being seen.

Remember that
- You are not your Ego
- You do not have to suffer with it
- You can love it on the way up or down, it does not matter
- You can burn and rebuild the Ego with awareness, will power and discipline
- If your Ego’s story is no longer relevant to its new construction, let it go.
- With a clear heart you can feel other people’s heart energy more clearly
- Be willing to share prolonged eye contact to look beyond the surface and feel a connection in the heart space. This can be a very refreshing, regenerating and invigorating spiritual exercise.
- You will discover that love and connection are actually the easiest things in the world, when we drop all the things that our Ego uses to block it. Indeed, love and our awareness of it, is the only REAL thing that exists outside of the material / illusionary universe, in which we get to work this truth out through our experiences.

People: The Life Blood of an Organization

Organization

Traditional capitalism is fundamentally wrong: The owner or executives of an organization believe that the organization’s sole purpose is to drive maximum profit for maximum personal gain. And that all the staff depend on THEM for their livelihood. Which entitles owners to believe they are already serving a good purpose by employing them and deserve the byproduct of their risk taking in the form of all remaining profit.

I see now that an organization is nothing without its people, that the owners depend on its people in equal proportion to their dependence on the owners, and that ultimately the people entrust the owners to use wisely all resources for the growth, advancement and betterment of the organization in the same way that all living cells depend on the brain and Ego to use all it’s life resources wisely.

We are all connected and we are all relying on each other to serve our roles in ways that best support each other, allows for even our individual spiritual mission to unfold as the organization carries out a mission that best supports the planet.
Profit or financial resources are the only food that keeps the organizational body running and one rogue (selfish) cell at any level, can bring down or limit the whole beautiful system of cooperation.

The Logic of Conspiracy

conspiracy-theories

It’s hard for me to imagine that “conspiracies”, especially on a global scale DO NOT exist.
All it takes is a simple chain of logic to understand how “conspiracies” are not only possible, but also more common than you think.

Let’s start with people.

In order for a conspiracy to exist it usually involves more than one person.
What’s the one thing all people have in common? Needs.
How are MOST needs met? Resources.
What is the one resource we use to acquire all the others? Money
When a large society of billions collectively agrees to accept and use money, we can say that money has power and influence in that society.
Because all people have needs, and needs are met through resources and resources are acquired through money, it can be said that money is the ultimate tool for influence.

Let’s pretend for a moment that you have access to vast sums of money. I’m not just talking rich, I’m talking at the top of the money matrix pyramid rich (in the realm of billions, possibly trillions of dollars that go unreported) Or if you’re one of the controllers or benefactors of a central bank like the Federal Reserve (a PRIVATE entity with the ability to originate trillions of dollars with no audits and no governmental controls).. You literally have the ability to wield almost unlimited power and influence on a society. Let’s pretend that the people in control of these institutions are not saints and that if they are in a position of absolute power, absolute power that is most likely corrupting them absolutely.

Now imagine that the only thing you have to do to maintain your position of wealth, power and influence is to “conspire”. Conspire with people in positions of power and influence, for the purpose of reducing threats or positioning yourself for optimum gain. This is no different from the incentive a corporation has in a capitalistic system, to eliminate competition or position itself for maximum profitability.

How hard of a stretch is it to imagine that this same thinking goes beyond the boundaries of a profit seeking corporation, and enters the realm of a “global conspiracy” to control governments, resources and even people? And that this conspiracy quite possibly has no moral bounds.
Is it because the very notion of a “global conspiracy” too big and far reaching? To mind boggling complexity to be a reality?

Before you allow complexity to scare you into thinking it’s not possible, consider the US tax code alone is almost a thousand pages.
Is it too far fetched to imagine that if you had virtually unlimited power and influence that you wouldn’t think on a bigger scale?
If you control the money, you have power and influence in a society, including its media.
If you control the media, you have power and influence over perceptions.
If you control people’s perceptions, you can control what they focus on.
If you control what the world is focused on, you can direct or misdirect them, however it serves YOU and your best interests.
If your best interests are NOT their best interests, you merely have to keep them distracted to stay in power.

Bottom line:

Wake up, to believe that there is NOT a global conspiracy of any kind is the result of thinking too small and not accurately assessing the power and influence that controlling the money supply has in our current society. A society that hungers for money in the same way it hungers for food. Until we break free from the bonds that money has on us OR control the money supply as a public entity (with transparency and auditing) that benefits the whole – we as a society, will continue to be victims of REAL conspiracies, misdirection and lies from those in control.
So the next time someone snickers, rolls eyes and calls something a “conspiracy theory” .. Consider the possibility that just because a person cannot imagine how it could be done (small thinking) doesn’t mean that it cannot be done.
