Truth is a Constant


Truth is a constant.

We exist as vibrations. Inspiration requires exploration.

Dogma is born in the gap where consciousness has been excluded.

Our conversations with other adventurers have led to an ennobling of pseudo-powerful consciousness. Reality has always been overflowing with warriors whose hearts are opened by freedom. We are in the midst of a magical blossoming of intuition that will align us with the quantum soup itself.

How should you navigate this sublime biosphere? The nexus is calling to you via atomic ionization. Can you hear it? Although you may not realize it, you are Vedic.

Eons from now, we travellers will dream like never before as we are guided by the cosmos. Parvati will give us access to mystical fulfillment. The uprising of grace is now happening worldwide.

Synchronicity is the driver of serenity.

Without rejuvenation, one cannot vibrate. You may be ruled by dogma without realizing it. Do not let it sabotage the deeper meaning of your journey. Where there is pain, potential cannot thrive.

Motivation


“According to this law [the law of Dharma], you have a unique talent and a unique way of expressing it. There is something that you can do better than anyone else in the whole world–and for every unique talent and unique expression of that talent, there are also unique needs. When these needs are matched with the creative expression of your talent, that is the spark that creates affluence. Expressing your talents to fulfill needs creates unlimited wealth and abundance.”
– Deepak Chopra

WORD OF THE DAY
BobtailBAHB-teylPart of speech: nounOrigin: Middle English, mid 16th century
1A docked tail of a horse or dog.2Cut short; abbreviated.
 
Examples of Bobtail in a sentence “NOUN: The Australian Sheepdog has a natural, genetic bobtail.” “ADJECTIVE: We had longer plans but the weather bobtailed our date.”

I read this somewhere… don’t know where…


We heal, we self-actualize, we are reborn.

Nothing is impossible. Curiosity is a constant.

We exist as sub-atomic particles.

The paradigm shift of gratitude is now happening worldwide. Gaia will give us access to unified life-force. It is in deepening that we are reborn.

Only a traveller of the quantum cycle may release this rekindling of love. You may be ruled by materialism without realizing it. Do not let it eliminate the deeper meaning of your mission. Ego is born in the gap where manna has been excluded.

Yes, it is possible to eradicate the things that can sabotage us, but not without healing on our side. The complexity of the present time seems to demand a deepening of our hearts if we are going to survive. We can no longer afford to live with selfishness.

Grace requires exploration.

The galaxy is full of sub-atomic particles. To navigate the path is to become one with it. This life is nothing short of an awakening unifying of ancient power.

Oliver Cromwell.


Oliver Cromwell.
In his Speech on 20-4-1653 , says addressing the British Parliament :
” Is there a single Virtue now remaining amongst you. ? Is there one Vice you do not possess. ?You have no more Religion than my Horse. Gold is your God, which of you have not bartered your conscience for bribes ?. Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the commonwealth. ?”

Seth Godin’s newsletter


* Enrollment [ https://feeds.feedblitz.com/~/648442642/0/sethsblog/posts~Enrollment/ ]

It’s more productive to offer directions to someone who has already decided to go on the journey.

“How do I get there?” is a much easier transaction than, “you must go.”

When there’s mutual enrollment, we call it alignment. If people in the organization are all committed to a similar destination, management becomes more like coaching. In fact, we end up calling them a team instead of a company or a division. Instead of using authority, discipline and extrinsic rewards, teams that are enrolled in the journey are more likely to look for signposts of progress. Instead of focusing on shortcuts, competition and scarcity, teams that are enrolled are more resilient, cooperative and committed.

Public school has confused us about how important enrollment can be. That’s because organized schooling is mandatory, and ‘enrollment’ is simply something that happens on paper, not emotionally.

It’s far easier to coach a spirited cricket team than it is to teach those very same kids improper fractions. That’s obvious–in the first case, they’re enrolled in the game, and in the second, they’re simply complying with as little effort as possible.

As Anthony Iannarino says, “too many leaders use their organizational authority instead of inviting people to an adventure, one with meaning, and one that will require growth. Leaders mistakenly believe everyone is motivated by money.”

There’s a hierarchy to enrollment.

At the most primitive level, it’s a desire to evade punishment, to avoid banishment, to stay alive and preserve the status quo. There are no dreams here, simply fear.

Sometimes, this evolves into a mutually beneficial entanglement between the boss and the bossed. The enrollment turns into a desire to please, a figurehead-focused loyalty and dedication that often ends poorly because there’s nothing beyond the dyad. Without external signposts, solipsism and dittoheads result.

More common and more resilient is the enrollment in the tribe. “People like us do things like this.” This is the culture we each choose to live in, the narrative of what it means to choose to be an insider. Status roles and affiliation in a perpetual dance. Enrollment in the group seems to be the dominant form of the human condition, and it’s a place where many leaders and marketers do their best work.

But peer-to-peer enrollment can co-exist with the individual’s desire for meaning and contribution. This is where dreams live and leaders come from. When people enroll in a journey to make things better through effort and contribution, they’re finding a source of inspiration and sustenance from within.

Money, cash money, is a blunt instrument used by organizations and individuals to short circuit much of the hierarchy of enrollment. The idea is that it’s a multi-purpose signifier, an easy way to say, “whatever you seek, whether it’s money for food or money to build a hospital wing, do this and you’ll get some.” And then, to make it even more brutally effective, money as an inducement is combined with the threat of banishment, with keeping someone on the knife’s edge of survival, either financial or emotional.

But money is a story, and it’s a story that is interpreted differently by different people in different moments. When we default to a simple number, we dehumanize the transaction and fail to see what people really need and want.

Where does enrollment come from? It’s certainly easier to start by hiring or leading people who are already enrolled. This is what happens with Major League Baseball calls someone up from the minors. They’re not trying to persuade this person to like baseball, and the promotion from sub-minimum wage to hundreds of thousands of dollars isn’t the lever, either. Dreams realized is enough.

But where do the dreams come from in the first place? I think it might be a combination of two things:

– The situation/indoctrination/culture we live in.
– The experiences we have.

Enrollment is a combination of what we do and what we’ve been surrounded by. Appropriate difficulty followed by learning. Peer support and peer pressure. Expectations understood and perhaps met. Small steps that lead to an appetite for effort and outcomes.

It’s almost impossible to manage someone to enrollment, but we can lead them there.

Fascism as defined by Mussolini


“Benito Mussolini created the word ‘fascism.’ He defined it as ‘the merging of the state and the corporation.’ He also said a more accurate word would be ‘corporatism.’ This was the definition in Webster’s up until 1987 when a corporation bought Webster’s and changed it to exclude any mention of corporations.” — Adam McKay

Labor of Love – My 1st Spiritual Guru – Avatar MeherBaba.


LABOR OF LOVE*

The source of eternal bliss is the Self in all.The cause of perpetual misery is the selfishness of all.

As long as satisfaction is derived through selfish pursuits, misery will always exist.

Only because of the infinite love and mercy of God can man learn to realize, through the lessons of misery on earth, that inherent in him is the source of infinite bliss, and all suffering is his labor of love to unveil his own infinite Self.

[*Baba gave this answer to the following question asked of him on television:

“Why should misery perpetually exist on earth in spite of God’s infinite love and mercy?”
