The Myth of Transcendence and Other Evolutionary Geek-ness

The Myth of Transcendence and Other Evolutionary Geek-ness

 

 

Stages of Evolution. Waves of unfolding. The spiral.

You are familiar with the holonic stages ::: from pre-personal to personal to trans-personal; from body/physical to mind/mental/intellectual to Spiritual; from ego-centric to ethno-centric/Nationalistic to World-centric/global. From pre-rational to rational to trans-rational.

Spiritual Capitalism ::: Prosperity Through Purpose

Spiritual Capitalism ::: Prosperity Through Purpose

"When people are free to act, they will always act in a way that they believe will maximize their utility, i.e., will raise them to the highest possible position on their value scale. Their utility ex ante will be maximized, provided we take care to interpret “utility” in an ordinal rather than a cardinal manner. Any action, any exchange that takes place on the free market or more broadly in the free society, occurs because of the expected benefit to each party concerned.” –Murray N. Rothbard, Power and Market

"We must not be afraid to be free."--Justice Black

 

Human beings have an inexhaustible spirit. Through wars, pestilence, oppression, disasters, genocide and personal tragedy, human beings continue to express creativity and ingenuity to the very degree that they are allowed the liberties to do so. It is an unquenchable and inexhaustible Spirit. It is the best—the Divine—within each of us that makes it so. And while at times, we have varying degrees of access to the divine within us, and sometimes the light is dim and flickers, the fact remains that there is a god or goddess in all of us waiting to come out and play.

What if we could integrate our work and our play? Our spirit and our finances? Our economics and our purpose? Our job and our internal worship? The mundane and the divine? My assertion is that not only is this possible...it is necessary...for the conscious evolution of the planet and for our survival and thrival as a species ::: not to mention our personal happiness.

NLP, Identity, Sexual Orientation, and Our Responsibility to Assist Clients in Self-Acceptance

NLP, Identity, Sexual Orientation, and Our Responsibility to Assist Clients in Self-Acceptance
somebody i met was asking me if NLP processes can change an identity layer as deep as sexual orientation.

Great question. Several ideas about it:There are some aspects of sexual orientation that may extend into identity structures, but I am uncertain about the presupposition that there is where it lays--in fact, after seing hundreds of clients, for some people it creates tremendous internal dissonance when they finally admit to their desires because it is directly in conflict with their identity structures. In other words, I disagree with the presupposition in the question.

this guy is straight and very open-minded. i think he genuinely wanted to know about the range and reach of NLP. i did tell him that i did a training with richard bandler in 88 or 89 where he *claimed* that guys (terrified of aids) had begged him to "make them straight" AND he said that he did that!

Bandler may have in fact done that.  Again, lots of "instant research" in the early days. But if Bandler did it and was bragging about it, I would be even more hesitant. Bandler once bragged in a video I watched about installing a phobia in someone so they would stop sitting in the front row. Ugh. However, there is a documented intervention [Laid out in "Heart of the Mind", I think] where a guy was effeminate, and supposedly gay, married, but did not enjoy sex with men [or something like that] and there was an event where he was going under anesthetic, struggled, and was put under. This was somehow tied to the effeminate-ness and cleared and his orientation "changed" to straight.Again, not sure the guy was ever really homo-erotically driven.

NOW, i am open-minded, so i said i think that there are aspects of person's 'taste' for certain things could be altered and very likely even the cues for arousal. i am also aware that there is a big difference between chemistry/attraction and a constructed identity--so yes an 'identity' could be shifted. BUT I don't really know if the primary gender attraction could change.

Yeah. I agree with you here.

thoughts?

Of course.

If someone came to me wanting to change their sexual orientation/gender attraction, I would probably decline to do so. But I would do it elegantly in this way ::: Get into communication wiht the part of them that feels like something is wrong with their desires [assuming consenting adults] and look at the guilt and shame that must be driving the desire to change and resolve that to make them okay with their mutually consensual, alternative, yet natural desires. Thereby sidestepping what I consider to be a questionable intervention.To me, that is a more ethical approach, rippling out to areas in every aspect of their life, creating internal peace, and avoiding making change that is motivated in the ways this request for change likely would be.It is not the thing itself [sexual orientation in this case] that is the problem, but the relationship to it the creates it as a problem. And again, just because we can, does not mean we should.Self-acceptance being one of the highest and deepest contributions we can make to our clients.Jason

The Choice is Yours...

The Choice is Yours...
I take a lot of heat. It is only outweighed by the acknowledgments I get from people about my marketing.  Thank God it is a 1 to 2 ratio, respectively. At the same time, I gotta be honest, I am new to this internet marketing stuff. I am still learning. I know how to sell from service and contribution [and teach that] and I understand social networking and new media--but the email and internet marketing stuff? I am barely a journeyman. So I thank you for your grace. I test, I experiment--and I bump into walls tracking effectiveness. And that is what I do--it is what I did while building my very successful coaching business. I go to the edge, bump into walls so you don't have to, and report back on what works and what does not. The judgmental emails I get some times are challenging--I have to grit my teeth and thank people for their feedback--and trudge on, living my purpose and contributing to the world. So if my marketing bothers you, I am learning. That is why I do not yet teach internet marketing. However, I HAVE mastered building a practice--and turning it into a business. So what I will say is this--go to the coaches site. If the copy there speaks to you--and you know you should be investing in your skill, depth, emotional freedom--and living your spiritual purpose, well, there are 3 more of these coupon leases--3 more of these crazy discounts. It is not too late. BUT half of them are gone. If it speaks to you--well, do it. If it does not--then don't. Simple as that. So go check it out:http://coaches.evolutionarycompanies.com/ If that speaks to you, then just buy the darn thing.  Click "Create an account". Go HERE: http://coaches.evolutionarycompanies.com/create-an-account/ Click scroll down and clock "buy now". Create an account by entering your desired account details [username and password and email] and enter that coupon code at checkout.   This coupon code: 397CLC  This coupon code expires after 3 more uses. Then no more. That coupon code is good for a discount of $1,601.00. You read that right. Do it now. The world is waiting for you to step into your Purpose. You CAN be fulfilled and prosperous. If you go and do this now, the likelihood you WILL be fulfilled and prosperous dramatically increases--and I want that for you. In Service Jason Go check it out:http://coaches.evolutionarycompanies.com/ If that speaks to you, then just buy the darn thing.  Click "Create an account".

Do You Need a Swift Kick in the Butt?

Do You Need a Swift Kick in the Butt?

Swift kicks in the butt are not my style--they are not what I do or what I offer. BUT I know they are necessary at times for us all.  AND, every once in a while, someone comes along who not  only cares about you, but can kick you in the butt in just the right way. Once in a while I run across an offer I think is worth supporting/advocating and forwarding from someone I approve of. Someone I think you can benefit from. Someone with immaculate integrity--who will also bring crazy value to your life. And someone who truly cares--at a deep level--about assisting you in improving your life. This is the first offer like that that I am advocating on this site, in well over a year, so you can imagine that this is a good one. Meet David Martin.I like to think of David as the Tony Robbins for Central and South America. He speaks to groups that are over 500 people at a time--and not only is he a Master Practitioner of NLP, but an amazing motivational speaker--AND he really, really cares about people--and he knows how to kick your butt.

Anyway, David's got a crazy download deal for audio material he has recorded. If you need your butt kicked--he's your guy.  Check it out HERE. I'm not sure how long he is offering this--I know it will not be up forever--but either way I suggest you get over there and take advantage of this opportunity--especially, as I said, you need a good butt kicking. *chuckling* Check it out HERE:http://www.profcs.com/app/?af=984126 In Service and In Evolution, Jason
