If You Want To Change The world, Love A Man

This poem which is credited to a Lauren Wilceuy seems to be popular with the 

tantra crowd as I’ve seen it posted by more than a few tantrikas and women that are into the science of tantra/ tantric yoga. 

I like the message, maybe you will find some inspiration in it too

IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD, LOVE A MAN

If you want to change the world love a man; really love him
Choose the one whose soul calls to yours clearly who sees you;
who is brave enough to be afraid


Accept his hand and guide him gently to your hearts blood

Where he can feel your warmth upon him and rest there
And burn his heavy load in your fires
Look into his eyes, look deep within and see what lies dormant or awake or shy or expectant there
Look into his eyes and see there his fathers and grandfathers and all the wars and madness their spirits fought in some distant land, some distant time
Look upon their pains and struggles and torments and guilt; without judgment
And let it all go
Feel into his ancestral burden
And know that what he seeks is safe refuge in you
Let him melt in your steady gaze
And know that you need not mirror that rage
Because you have a womb, a sweet, deep gateway to wash and renew old wounds
If you want to change the world love a man, really love him
Sit before him, in the full majesty of your woman in the breath of your vulnerability
In the play of your child innocence in the depths of your death
Flowering invitation, softly yielding, allowing his power as a man
To step forward towards you…and swim in the Earth’s womb, in silent knowing, together
And when he retreats…because he will…flees in fear to his cave…
Gather your grandmothers around you…envelope in their wisdoms
Hear their gentle ‘shusshhhed’ whispers, calm your frightened girls’ heart
Urging you to be still…and wait patiently for his return
Sit and sing by his door, a song of remembrance, that he may be soothed, once more
If you want to change the world, love a man, really love him
Do not coax out his little boy
With guiles and wiles and seduction and trickery
Only to lure him…to a web of destruction
To a place of chaos and hatred
More terrible than any war fought by his brothers
This is not feminine, this is revenge
This is the poison of the twisted lines
Of the abuse of the ages, the rape of our world
And this gives no power to woman, it reduces her as she cuts off his balls
And it kills us all
And whether his mother held him or could not
Show him the true mother now
Hold him and guide him in your grace and your depth
Smoldering in the center of the Earth’s core
Do not punish him for his wounds that you think don’t meet your needs or criteria
Cry for him sweet rivers
Bleed it all back home
If you want to change the world love a man, really love him
Love him enough to be naked and free
Love him enough to open your body and soul to the cycle of birth and of death
And thank him for the opportunity
As you dance together through the raging winds and silent woods
Be brave enough to be fragile and let him drink in the soft, heady petals of your being
Let him know he can hold you, stand up and protect you
Fall back into his arms and trust him to catch you
Even if you’ve been dropped a thousand times before
Teach him how to surrender by surrendering yourself
And merge into the sweet nothing, of this worlds’ heart
If you want to change the world, love a man, really love him
Encourage him, feed him, allow him, hear him, hold him, heal him
And you, in turn, will be nourished and supported and protected
By strong arms and clear thoughts and focused arrows
Because he can, if you let him, be all that you dream
If you want to love a man,
love yourself, love your father, love your brother, your son, your ex-partner;
from the first boy you kissed, to the last one you wept over
Give thanks for the gifts; of your unraveling to this meeting
Of the one who stands before you now
And find in him the seed to all that’s new and solar
A seed that you can feed to help direct the planting
To grow a new world, together.

Aldus Huxley author of Brave New World 1958 Interview with Mike Wallace (transcript)

Personally, I find I can read a transcript faster than it takes to watch the video.  Aired almost 61 years ago.

Transcript


THE MIKE WALLACE INTERVIEW
Guest: Aldous Huxley
5/18/58

WALLACE: This is Aldous Huxley, a man haunted by a vision of hell on earth. A searing social critic, Mr. Huxley 27 years ago, wrote Brave New World, a novel that predicted that some day the entire world would live under a frightful dictatorship. Today Mr. Huxley says that his fictional world of horror is probably just around the corner for all of us. We’ll find out why, in a moment.

(OPENING CREDITS)

WALLACE: Good evening, I’m Mike Wallace. Tonight’s guest, Aldous Huxley, is a man of letters, as disturbing as he is distinguished. Born in England, now a resident of California, Mr. Huxley has written some of the most electric novels and social criticism of this century.

He’s just finished a series of essays called “Enemies of Freedom,” in which he outlines and defines some of the threats to our freedom in the United States; and Mr. Huxley, right of the bat, let me ask you this: as you see it, who and what are the enemies of freedom here in the United States?

HUXLEY: Well, I don’t think you can say who in the United States, I don’t think there are any sinister persons deliberately trying to rob people of their freedom, but I do think, first of all, that there are a number of impersonal forces which are pushing in the direction of less and less freedom, and I also think that there are a number of technological devices which anybody who wishes to use can use to accelerate this process of going away from freedom, of imposing control.

WALLACE: Well, what are these forces and these devices, Mr. Huxley?

HUXLEY: I should say that there are two main impersonal forces, er…the first of them is not exceedingly important in the United States at the present time, though very important in other countries. This is the force which in general terms can be called overpopulation, the mounting pressure of population pressing upon existing resources.

WALLACE: Uh-huh.

HUXLEY: Uh…this, of course, is an extraordinary thing; something is happening which has never happened in the world’s history before, I mean, let’s just take a simple fact that between the time of birth of Christ and the landing of the May Flower, the population of the earth doubled. It rose from two hundred and fifty million to probably five hundred million. Today, the population of the earth is rising at such a rate that it will double in half a century.

WALLACE: Well, why should overpopulation work to diminish our freedoms?

HUXLEY: Well, in a number of ways. I mean, the…the experts in the field like Harrison Brown, for example, pointed out that in the underdeveloped countries actually the standard of living is at present falling. The people have less to eat and less goods per capita than they had fifty years ago;

and as the position of these countries, the economic position, becomes more and more precarious, obviously the central government has to take over more and more responsibility for keeping the ship-of-state on an even keel, and then of course you are likely to get social unrest under such conditions, with again an intervention of the central government.

So that, I think that one sees here a pattern which seems to be pushing very strongly towards a totalitarian regime. And unfortunately, as in all these underdeveloped countries the only highly organized political party is the Communist Party, it looks rather as though they will be the heirs to this unfortunate process, that they will step into the power…the position of power.

WALLACE: Well then, ironically enough one of the greatest forces against communism in the world, the Catholic Church, according to your thesis would seem to be pushing us directly into the hands of the communists because they are against birth control.

HUXLEY: Well, I think this strange paradox probably is true. There is, er…, it’s an extraordinary situation actually. I mean, one has to look at it, of course, from a biological point of view: the whole essence of biological life on earth is a question of balance and what we’ve done is to practice death control in the most intensive manner without balancing this with birth control at the other end. Consequently, the birth rates remain as high as they were and death rates have fallen substantially. (COUGHS)

WALLACE: All right then, so much, for the time being anyway, for overpopulation. Another force that is diminishing our freedoms?

HUXLEY: Well another force which I think is very strongly operative in this country is the force of what may be called of overorganization. Er…As technology becomes more and more complicated, it becomes necessary to have more and more elaborate organizations, more hierarchical organizations, and incidentally the advance of technology is being accompanied by an advance in the science of organization.

It’s now possible to make organizations on a larger scale than it was ever possible before, and so that you have more and more people living their lives out as subordinates in these hierarchical systems controlled by bureaucracy, either the bureaucracies of big businesses or the bureaucracies of big government.

WALLACE: Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Now the devices that you were talking about, are there specific devices or er…methods of communication which diminish our freedoms in addition to overpopulation and overorganization?

HUXLEY: Well, there are certainly devices which can be used in this way. I mean, let us er…take after all, a piece of very recent and very painful history is the propaganda used by Hitler, which was incredibly effective.

I mean, what were Hitler’s methods? Hitler used terror on the one kind, brute force on the one hand, but he also used a very efficient form of propaganda, which er…he was using every modern device at that time. He didn’t have TV., but he had the radio which he used to the fullest extent, and was able to impose his will on an immense mass of people. I mean, the Germans were a highly educated people.

WALLACE: Well, we’re aware of all this, but how do we equate Hitler’s use of propaganda with the way that propaganda, if you will, is used let us say here in the United States. Are you suggesting that there is a parallel?

HUXLEY: Needless to say it is not being used this way now, but, er…the point is, it seems to me, that there are methods at present available, methods superior in some respects to Hitler’s method, which could be used in a bad situation. I mean, what I feel very strongly is that we mustn’t be caught by surprise by our own advancing technology.

This has happened again and again in history with technology’s advance and this changes social condition, and suddenly people have found themselves in a situation which they didn’t foresee and doing all sorts of things they really didn’t want to do.

WALLACE: And well, what…what do you mean? Do you mean that we develop our television but we don’t know how to use it correctly, is that the point that you’re making?

HUXLEY: Well, at the present the television, I think, is being used quite harmlessly; it’s being used, I think, I would feel, it’s being used too much to distract everybody all the time. But, I mean, imagine which must be the situation in all communist countries where the television, where it exists, is always saying the same things the whole time; it’s always driving along.

It’s not creating a wide front of distraction it’s creating a one-pointed, er…drumming in of a single idea, all the time. It’s obviously an immensely powerful instrument.

WALLACE: Uh-huh. So you’re talking about the potential misuse of the instrument.

HUXLEY: Exactly. We have, of course…all technology is in itself moral and neutral. These are just powers which can either be used well or ill; it is the same thing with atomic energy, we can either use it to blow ourselves up or we can use it as a substitute for the coal and the oil which are running out.

WALLACE: You’ve even written about the use of drugs in this light.

HUXLEY: Well now, this is a very interesting subject. I mean, in this book that you mentioned, this book of mine, “Brave New World,” er…I postulated it a substance called ‘soma,’ which was a very versatile drug. It would make people feel happy in small doses, it would make them see visions in medium doses, and it would send them to sleep in large doses.

Well, I don’t think such a drug exists now, nor do I think it will ever exist. But we do have drugs which will do some of these things, and I think it’s quite on the cards that we may have drugs which will profoundly change our mental states without doing us any harm.

I mean, this is the…the pharmacological revolution which is taking place, that we have now powerful mind-changing drugs which physiologically speaking are almost costless. I mean they are not like opium or like coca…cocaine, which do change the state of mind but leave terrible results physiologically and morally.

WALLACE: Mr. Huxley, in your new essays you state that these various “Enemies of Freedom” are pushing us to a real-life “Brave New World,” and you say that it’s awaiting us just around the corner. First of all, can you detail for us, what life in this Brave New World would you fear so much, or what life might be like?

HUXLEY: Well, to start with, I think this kind of dictatorship of the future, I think will be very unlike the dictatorships which we’ve been familiar with in the immediate past. I mean, take another book prophesying the future, which was a very remarkable book, George Orwell’s “1984.”

Well, this book was written at the height of the Stalinist regime, and just after the Hitler regime, and there he foresaw a dictatorship using entirely the methods of terror, the methods of physical violence. Now, I think what is going to happen in the future is that dictators will find, as the old saying goes, that you can do everything with bayonets except sit on them!

WALLACE: (LAUGHS)

HUXLEY: But, if you want to preserve your power indefinitely, you have to get the consent of the ruled, and this they will do partly by drugs as I foresaw in “Brave New World,” partly by these new techniques of propaganda.

They will do it by bypassing the sort of rational side of man and appealing to his subconscious and his deeper emotions, and his physiology even, and so, making him actually love his slavery.

I mean, I think, this is the danger that actually people may be, in some ways, happy under the new regime, but that they will be happy in situations where they oughtn’t to be happy.

WALLACE: Well, let me ask you this. You’re talking about a world that could take place within the confines of a totalitarian state. Let’s become more immediate, more urgent about it. We believe, anyway, that we live in democracy here in the United States. Do you believe that this Brave New World that you talk about, er…could, let’s say in the next quarter century, the next century, could come here to our shores?

HUXLEY: I think it could. I mean, er…that’s why I feel it so extremely important here and now, to start thinking about these problems. Not to let ourselves be taken by surprise by the…the new advances in technology. I mean the…for example, in the regard to the use of the…of the drugs.

We know, there is enough evidence now for us to be able, on the basis of this evidence and using certain amount of creative imagination, to foresee the kind of uses which could be made by people of bad will with these things and to attempt to forestall this, and in the same way,

I think with these other methods of propaganda we can foresee and we can do a good deal to forestall. I mean, after all, the price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

WALLACE: You write in Enemies of Freedom, you write specifically about the United States. You say this, writing about American political campaigns you say, “All that is needed is money and a candidate who can be coached to look sincere; political principles and plans for specific action have come to lose most of their importance. The personality of the candidate, the way he is projected by the advertising experts, are the things that really matter.”

HUXLEY: Well, this is the…during the last campaign, there was a great deal of this kind of statement by the advertising managers of the campaign parties. This idea that the candidates had to be merchandised as though they were soap and toothpaste and that you had to depend entirely on the personality.

I mean, personality is important, but there are certainly people with an extremely amiable personality, particularly on TV, who might not necessarily be very good in political…positions of political trust.

WALLACE: Well, do you feel that men like Eisenhower, Stevenson, Nixon, with knowledge aforethought were trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the American public?

HUXLEY: No, but they were being advised by powerful advertising agencies who were making campaigns of a quite different kind from what had been made before. and I think we shall see probably, er…all kinds of new devices coming into the picture. I mean, for example, this thing which got a good deal of publicity last autumn, subliminal projection.

I mean, as it stands, this thing, I think is of no menace to us at the moment, but I was talking the other day to one of the people who has done most experimental work in the…psychological laboratory with this, was saying precisely this, that it is not at the moment a danger, but once you’ve established the principle that something works, you can be absolutely sure that the technology of it is going to improve steadily.

And I mean his view of the subject was that, well, maybe they will use it up to some extent in the 1960 campaign, but they will probably use it a good deal and much more effectively in the 1964 campaign because this is the kind of rate at which technology advances.

WALLACE: And we’ll be persuaded to vote for a candidate that we do not know that we are being persuaded to vote for.

HUXLEY: Exactly, I mean this is the rather alarming picture that you’re being persuaded below the level of choice and reason.

WALLACE: In regard to advertising, which you mentioned just a little ago, in your writing, particularly in “Enemies of Freedom,” you attack Madison Avenue, which controls most of our television and radio advertising, newspaper advertising and so forth. Why do you consistently attack the advertising agencies…

HUXLEY: Well, no I…I think that, er…advertisement plays a very necessary role, but the danger it seems to me in a democracy is this…I mean what does a democracy depend on? A democracy depends on the individual voter making an intelligent and rational choice for what he regards as his enlightened self-interest, in any given circumstance.

But what these people are doing, I mean what both, for their particular purposes, for selling goods and the dictatorial propagandists are for doing, is to try to bypass the rational side of man and to appeal directly to these unconscious forces below the surfaces so that you are, in a way, making nonsense of the whole democratic procedure, which is based on conscious choice on rational ground.

WALLACE: Of course, well, maybe…I…you have just answered this next question because in your essay you write about television commercials, not just political commercials, but television commercials as such and how, as you put it, “Today’s children walk around singing beer commercials and toothpaste commercials.” And then you link this phenomenon in some way with the dangers of a dictatorship. Now, could you spell out the connection or, have…or do you feel you’ve done so sufficiently?

HUXLEY: Well, I mean, here, this whole question of children, I think, is a terribly important one because children are quite clearly much more suggestible than the average grownup; and again, suppose that, er…that for one reason or another all the propaganda was in the hands of one or very few agencies, you would have an extraordinarily powerful force playing on these children, who after all are going to grow up and be adults quite soon. I do think that this is not an immediate threat, but it remains a possible threat, and…

WALLACE: You said something to the effect in your essay that the children of Europe used to be called ‘cannon fodder’ and here in the United States they are ‘television and radio fodder.’

HUXLEY: Well, after all, you can read in the trade journals the most lyrical accounts of how necessary it is, to get hold of the children because then they will be loyal brand buyers later on. But I mean, again you just translate this into political terms, the dictator says they all will be ideology buyers when they are grownup.

WALLACE: We hear so much about brainwashing as used by the communists. Do you see any brainwashing other than that which we’ve just been talking about, that is used here in the United States, other forms of brainwashing?

HUXLEY: Not in the form that has been used in China and in Russia because this is, essentially, the application of propaganda methods, the most violent kind to individuals; it is not a shotgun method, like the…the advertising method. It’s a way of getting hold of the person and playing both on his physiology and his psychology until he really breaks down and then you can implant a new idea in his head.

I mean the descriptions of the methods are really blood curdling when you read them, and not only methods applied to political prisoners but the methods applied, for example, to the training of the young communist administrators and missionaries. They receive an incredibly tough kind of training which may cause maybe twenty-five percent of them to break down or commit suicide, but produces seventy-five percent of completely one-pointed fanatics.

WALLACE: The question, of course, that keeps coming back to my mind is this: obviously politics in themselves are not evil, television is not in itself evil, atomic energy is not evil, and yet you seem to fear that it will be used in an evil way. Why is it that the right people will not, in your estimation, use them? Why is it that the wrong people will use these various devices and for the wrong motives?

HUXLEY: Well, I think one of the reasons is that these are all instruments for obtaining power, and obviously the passion for power is one of the most moving passions that exists in man; and after all, all democracies are based on the proposition that power is very dangerous and that it is extremely important not to let any one man or any one small group have too much power for too long a time.

After all what are the British and American Constitution except devices for limiting power, and all these new devices are extremely efficient instruments for the imposition of power by small groups over larger masses.

WALLACE: Well, you ask this question yourself in “Enemies of Freedom.” I’ll put your own question back to you. You ask this, “In an age of accelerating overpopulation, of accelerating overorganization, and ever more efficient means of mass communication, how can we preserve the integrity and reassert the value of the human individual?” You put the question, now here’s your chance to answer it Mr. Huxley.

HUXLEY: Well, this is obviously…first of all, it is a question of education. Er…I think it’s terribly important to insist on individual values, I mean, what is a…there is a tendency as a…you probably read a book by Whyte, “The Organization Man”, a very interesting, valuable book I think, where he speaks about the new type of group morality, group ethic, which speaks about the group as though the group were somehow more important than the individual.

But this seems, as far as I’m concerned, to be in contradiction with what we know about the genetical makeup of human beings, that every human being is unique. And it is, of course, on this genetical basis that the whole idea of the value of freedom is based.

And I think it’s extremely important for us to stress this in all our educational life, and I would say it’s also very important to teach people to be on their guard against the sort of verbal booby traps into which they are always being led, to analyze the kind of things that are said to them.

Well, I think there is this whole educational side of…and I think there are many more things that one could do to strengthen people, and to make them more aware of what’s being done.

WALLACE: You’re a prophet of decentralization?

HUXLEY: Well, the…yes…if it…it’s feasible. It’s one of the tragedies, it seems to me. I mean, many people have been talking about the importance of decentralization in order to give back to the voter a sense of direct power. I mean…the voter in an enormous electorate field is quite impotent, and his vote seems to count for nothing.

This is not true where the electorate is small, and where he is dealing with a…with a group which he can manage and understand…and if one can, as Jefferson after all suggested, break up the units, er…into smaller and smaller units and so, get a real, self-governing democracy.

WALLACE: Well, that was all very well in Jefferson’s day, but how can we revamp our economic system and decentralize, and at the same time meet militarily and economically the tough challenge of a country like Soviet Russia?

HUXLEY: Well, I think the answer to that is that there are…it seems to me that you…that production, industrial production is of two kinds. I mean, there are some kinds of industrial production which obviously need the most tremendously high centralization, like the making of automobiles for example.

But there are many other kinds where you could decentralize quite easily and probably quite economically, and that you would then have this kind of decentralized, like after all you begin to see it now, if you travel through the south, this decentralized textile industry which is springing up there.

WALLACE: Mr. Huxley, let me ask you this, quite seriously, is freedom necessary?

HUXLEY: As far as I am concerned it is.

WALLACE: Why? Is it necessary for a productive society?

HUXLEY: Yes, I should say it is. I mean, a genuinely productive society. I mean you could produce plenty of goods without much freedom, but I think the whole sort of creative life of man is ultimately impossible without a considerable measure of individual freedom, of initiative, creation, all these things which we value, and I think value properly, are impossible without a large measure of freedom.

WALLACE: Well, Mr. Huxley, take a look again at the country which is in the stance of our opponent anyway, it would seem, anyway it would seem to be there, Soviet Russia. It is strong, and getting stronger, economically, militarily, at the same time it’s developing its art forms pretty well, er…it seems not unnecessarily to squelch the creative urge among its people. And yet it is not a free society.

HUXLEY: It’s not a free society, but here is something very interesting that those members of the society, like the scientists, who are doing the creative work, are given far more freedom than anybody else. I mean, it is a privileged aristocratic society in which, provided they don’t poke their noses into political affairs, these people are given a great deal of prestige, a considerable amount of freedom, and a lot money.

I mean, this is a very interesting fact about the new Soviet regime, and I think what we are going to see is er…a people on the whole with very little freedom but with an oligarchy on top enjoying a considerable measure of freedom and a very high standard of living.

WALLACE: And the people down below, the ‘epsilons’ down below…

HUXLEY: Enjoying very little.

WALLACE: And you think that that kind of situation can long endure?

HUXLEY: I think it can certainly endure much longer than the situation in which everybody is kept out; I mean, they can certainly get their technological and scientific results on such a basis.

WALLACE: Well, the next time that I talk to you then, perhaps we should investigate further the possibility of the establishment of that kind of a society, where the drones work for the queen bees up above.

HUXLEY: Well, but yes, but I must say, I still believe in democracy, if we can make the best of the creative activities of the people on top plus those of the people on the bottom, so much the better.

WALLACE: Mr. Huxley, I surely thank you for spending this half hour with us, and I wish you God speed sir.

HUXLEY: Thank you.

WALLACE: Aldous Huxley finds himself these days in a peculiar and disturbing position: a quarter of a century after prophesying an authoritarian state in which people were reduced to cyphers, he can point at Soviet Russia and say, “I told you so!” The crucial question, as he sees it now, is whether the so-called Free World is shortly going to give Mr. Huxley the further dubious satisfaction of saying the same thing about us.

Stay tuned for a preview of next weeks interview. Till then, Mike Wallace. Good night.

Dream Realization: Wisdom and Insights From Will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas

July 25, 2012

A Day In The Life: Will.i.am

There’s a new series I found on Hulu called A Day In The Life. Their first episode showcases a day in the life of billionaire Richard Branson.

So far, I’ve only watched Richard Branson, Girl Talk, Will.i.am and Timothy Ferriss. Besides offering a glimpse into each of their lives, there are some good nuggets of wisdom i take away from. Even if it’s not something they said, it could be how they go about doing things, how they interact with others, their mannerisms, etc. The shows are disappointingly short – less than 25 minutes long.

In series one, episode 3, they follow around Will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas fame.

Will.i.am seems quite grounded and humble in his success which he has worked long and hard at. The show catches up with him while the Peas are performing in Paris. In the car, he is amazed at how once upon a time it was all just in his head and now 10s of 1000s of people are waiting to hear them play.

He also expressed qualities that helped him get to where he is today:

  • Dedication
  • Focus
  • Discipline
  • Patience
  • Passion for his craft
  • Thick skin – have had to endure a whole bunch, heart broken, screwed in business deals, etc. But through all that learning to turn those negatives into positives.

Finally, he says why he was able to accomplish these things is due to his close friends who trust and support each other. Having good people around you is one of the cardinal rules to reach your goals.

meditation, relaxation and general tripping out.


Transcendental Meditation | Could TM Be Making a Comeback?

Everybody’s doing it… Beatles Paul and Ringo (George and John when they were alive), Russell Simmons, Howard Stern, Mike Love of beach boys, Donovan, David Lynch, Moby, Clint Eastwood, Mary Tyler Moore, (Merv Griffin was a HUGE proponent back in the 70s).

Some others that I was unable to verify for certainty include Jack Canfield, Bob Proctor, Oprah Winfrey, Bono, Sheryl Crow.

I doubt that TM will become ‘MAINSTREAM’ any time soon,  where a large majority of the population is doing it, but  the beauty is it doesn’t have to be practiced by everyone in order to have extremely positive effects on society and the planet.

Enormous amounts of scientific studies have shown again and again the proof of the effectiveness TM has in every aspect of life.  As Maharishi explained, the nature of life is to want more and more and greater and greater happiness.

David Lynch formed his foundation with the goal to teach TM in the schools.

They’ve already incorporated this in many inner city troubled schools with remarkable success in turning things around for the good.

Feeling Overwhelmed Sucks!  I’ve been there many a times and can totally relate to anyone who’s feeling that right now.

Here’s what I’ve learned from a recent Jack Canfield call on how to handle being overwhelmed as well as a great definition for what it means.

Overwhelmed:

Is having lots of options without criteria for sorting them out.

You need to have guidelines and prioritize your options basing them on your passions, interests committments, etc.

How to get out of overwhelmedness.

Grab some 3×5 cards and write everything you have committed to / goals – one per card.

Next, take two of them and compare which is more important than the other and sort accordingly. Do this with the next on down the list until you have them in order of importance.

Take into consideration the time, money and resources each one will take.  Which ones are most exciting to you. Which are most important for you to accomplish and so on.

Start with one of the goals and decide 3 things of action you can do over the next week.  If it involves something you have no idea how to go about doing, find someone who has already done what you want to do and contact them to see if they will help you in some way – you might be surprised at how often people will help.

How many goals are too many?

It differs from one person to the next. Some people are good at multitasking and delegating or are just natural over achievers.

If you are still feeling overwhelmed by the number of things you want to accomplish in a given period of time then you are probably over doing it for yourself.

It also could be that you have too many SHOULD DO goals rather than WANT TO goals.

A good habit to have is writing down things the night before of what you are going to do the next day.  This allows your subconscious to work on it during sleep and the law of attraction puts it out into the universe to help manifest your goals.

Instead of having a standard TO DO list, add the times WHEN you are going to do each thing. By putting everything in a time frame, you can reassess realistic expectations and reprioritize.

For example, say you have 5 things you want to get accomplished tomorrow. Put them in order of importance. Instead of working in a REACTIVE state, work from INTENTION and CREATION.

Using visualization is key here.  Visualize having the life and BELIEVE you can have it.  Some people find a vision board or book to help focus their intentions and mindset on what they want to be  do and have.

Figure out what you have to give up till you make the transition – maybe TV, movies, dinners out, some sleep.  IT takes a high level of commitment to get what you want – you have to really want it.  And remember, it’s not forever, just until you make it.

How Do You Want To Be Remembered? Leaving A Legacy

I’m a fan of Jack Canfield.  His books like  [Success Principles] may seem a bit fluffy to some, but there’s a wealth of wisdom to be discovered.

On a recent call with Alex Mandossian hosting (as usual), Jack went over some good topics to start the new year off right.

Seems lately that I’ve been hearing the phrase, LIFE IS SHORT, quite a bit.  We’ve all been saying it feels like time is speeding up each year – which may very well be the case if you believe the frequency of the earth has been increasing from 7.8Hz to 13Hz by 2012.

Nevertheless, Jack posed the question, How Do You Want To Be Remembered?  What legacy do you wish to leave for future generations?

Do you want to change and enrich people’s lives?  Do you want to know that because what you did, you enriched another’s life?

Food for thought.  As my subtitle of my blog states, design your life.  Think of how many free days you are going to have instead of how many hours a week or day you plan on working. Self employed entrepreneurs know what I mean.  We don’t have a set schedule like you do in a job.

Yes, I know, thinking of how much time you AREN’T going to work may sound counterproductive and lazy, but really, it’s working smart.

In order to create more free days, you need to avoid burn out while increasing productivity.  Here’s a few ideas that will help:

Meet others outside your field – people can give you new insights, ways of thinking and you’ll be exposed to new opportunities.

Set your goals in an environment away from your home. Why? Because we tend to be habituated in our way of thinking when we are in our usual environment.

We are less likely to think outside the cube.  Did someone say vacation? Seriously, think about how many times you’ve been on a vacation and came back with a whole new perspective on things?  I bet it’s happened more than once or twice.

How To Master What You Do For 2010

Master What You Do

My new year’s Gift to YOU. I’m passing on some inspiring thoughts from some of my teachers. . .

In the book, Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D Wattles -he’s always saying to Do Things In A Certain Way.

I’ve translated this to mean MASTER WHAT YOU DO.

Leave everyone you come into contact with, with the IMPRESSION OF INCREASE

Everyone does something well. Start looking for what others do well and bring it to their attention and let them know you notice it. Give them an idea that inspires them.
If you see the best in other people, companies, circumstances – you’ll be in a great vibration and feel good all the time and your whole world will improve.

In other words – make Them feel good because you have come into contact with them.
By leaving each person you meet with the “impression of increase”, you will not only make that person feel better, you will also be enriching your life.

This will, in turn, create an energy that will flow through you towards the person you’re uplifting and it will make you feel better in the process.

Feel empowered to make the other person feel good, because the benefits are endless.

The compensation you get from developing this into your own character, to leave every person with the impression of increase – not talking just money – but everything in your life will grow in abundance.

It’s said you don’t get rich by doing certain things, you get rich by doing things in a certain way. Said another way, you don’t become a real pro in your field by doing certain things, you become a pro by doing them in a certain way – master what you do.

There are laws that govern this universe and you need to understand them – otherwise you’ll just hit and miss – nothing of consequence will come to you.

[thinking end results]

You do not become the best in your field by doing things in a certain way. Be calm and confident. Know who u are.

Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It’s the result of long and patient effort in self control – james allen

Self control is a basic quality of leadership.

Before you can do something you first must BE something.

Bring your mind in harmony with the laws that govern your being. You must understand that

  • the thoughts you think control your emotions,
  • and your emotions control the vibration that you body is in
  • so it controls how you act.

If you don’t spend time gaining an understanding of the relationship of the conscious to the subconscious to the body, then you’re dealing on a hit and miss basis.

Life is very short – it can be a phenomenal glorious ride or it can be miserable pile of shit if you don’t understand how to make things happen.

The law says that what you put out comes back. So we just want to put out our very best. It doesn’t matter what everyone else is doing.

If you’re going to win you have to be courageous. The opposite of courage is not cowardess,  it’s conformity.

It’s just going along with everybody else. Don’t do that – you’ll end up where they end up. Which is nowhere, struggling to get by.
You want to stand out like a beacon on a dark night.

You want to make certain that you are one of the most effective human beings you could ever be.

You and I become what we think about… Not just the ones we consciously entertain. We become what thoughts we take and internalize – the ones we get emotionally involved in – the thoughts we let control us.

Don’t let others control how you think about things.

You don’t become the best at what you’re doing by doing certain things, you become the best by thinking all the way through to end results. Make it a part of your way of life.

Regardless of what you may have done in the past, you are going to be amazing in 2010.

Make up your mind, today, you’re going to do it better than you’ve ever done it before.
Do it a certain way -the certain way is the best way – – – there’s always a better way. What’s best today isn’t best tomorrow – there’s always a better way tomorrow…

Every day – get better at what you do you and give it everything you have… master what you do.

Your stock will go up – if where you are doesn’t recognize it then there is always someone at the door who is willing to pay you more.

Here’s where a lot of what I said came from : personal development teacher, Bob Proctor.

Oh, and for those of you (you know who you are)… I leave with a final word.

F-O-C-U-S

The Guru You Are Following Is NOT Your Buddy

The ‘Gurus’ are NOT Your Friends.

There. I said it.  Unless you were offline buddies before or have met in person and hung out in a non-business way, the guy you are following, learning from and giving your time and money to is NOT your friend and is not out for your best interests unless it suits his or her interests.

Hopefully, they ARE a good teacher and are giving you something of VALUE in the form of knowledge, skills and training know-how in exchange for your precious time.

The people who are most successful in this business work on themselves [personal development], and are constantlylearning new things.  They aren’t afraid to step up and LEAD.  They have good communication skills and can convey their knowledge to others.

Don’t get me wrong, most of these people aren’t egomaniacal sociopaths out to screw everyone else over – although there ARE plenty of them out here and they can be very hard to spot immediately – hell, I’ve come across a few in my time.  But I digress, most of those who are out here trying to make a better way for themselves and their families are honest, decent, interesting people.

Furthermore, although the internet offers massive leverage of your time, each of us still has just 24 hours in a day to live.  Including the ‘guru’s’ who are being inundated by dozens or 100s or 1000s of people in need of their precious time.

So like I said before, unless you are great buddies with your teacher, ‘online business partner’ , marketing expert, guru, whatever label you slap on it, then don’t get your panties in a bunch when they don’t respond to your email, tweet,  or call right away – or even ever in some cases, when it’s obvious to everyone but you that you are just wasting everybody’s time.

After being in this business for longer than most people, I see how things operate behind the curtain, beneath the hype, etc.

There’s always going to be another ‘PreLaunch’… another revolutionary system that’s going to turn the industry on its head. . . another gotta have tool, system, ebook, insider club to join…

Those who get to ‘print money on command’ or ‘get rich quick’ are the ones who’ve already put in the time and money and have finally positioned themselves as an authority with a faithful following.  That’s why you’ll see people who claim (and it’s often legit) that they made $8750 in 14 hours or some other wild claim.  What you’re not getting is that they spent 3 years building up an Email LIST of several thousand people and 5 or 10% of them took him up on whatever offer he sent out.

Your momma told you if it sounds too good to be true, then it is. What I’m saying is more accurately would be, it may be true, but it’s not the whole true.  There’s the back story that is shoved under the carpet and ignored. Why? Because, the truth isn’t exciting… the truth shows the hard work it took. . . the truth can be ugly and tough.

If you are a successful internet marketer or strive to be one, then you are in SALES… and you have a handle on the psychology of what makes people tick.  What?  They didn’t tell you that?  Well, now you know.
