The movement and diagnostic exercises, place you in the present moment, in direct sensation, and out of your preoccupation with the future or the past. Through movement people make the next big shift in a few hours. Movement and Quantum Access™, are a few of the many tools we use to get folks feeling again. With these tools, we look at what you perceive as your problems and impediments to moving forward, both on a personal and professional level.
Generosity is not solely based on one’s economic status, this includes the individual’s pure intentions of looking out for society’s common good and giving from the heart. True generosity reflects the individual’s passion to help others. In Buddhism, generosity is the antidote to the self-chosen poison called greed.
Worry is the state of preoccupation about future or past events, which has us avoiding handling present issues. You can stay present to the sensation of the moment. Step into awareness, move, change your state, feel, then you will not get pulled into future concerns or past experience.
I’ve observed some participants withdrawing from their life and those around them, those who lovingly supported them. This is part of a natural cycle. When this happens it is essential to reach out to your peers. Whenever anyone withdraws, it is often a self-destructive act. When they take themselves out they take others down with them. I’ve seen it happen many times. Just as someone is about to push through to the next level, the fear of everything becoming wonderful and easy takes them out. We can only take so much feeling good, it takes time to wean ourselves off the suffering.
Everyone in this process goes through the same stages. You are all on track for amazing success in the months ahead. If you have become defensive, angry, reactive or find yourself gossiping about others you have lost your self-respect and you are about to take yourself out.
The other side of anger is compassion. When you find yourself feeling superior to others, you are about to take yourself out. When you think you know it all, you are about to take yourself out. There is a great distinction between self-confidence and egotism. When you compare yourself to others, you are about to take yourself out. How can you compare yourself to another when there is no one quite like you.
Thanatos: Resulting death wish when you turn your creativity in against yourself.
In classical Freudian psychoanalytic theory, the death drive (“Todestrieb”) is the drive towards death, self-destruction and the return to the inorganic: ‘the hypothesis of a death instinct, the task of which is to lead organic life back into the inanimate state’. It was originally proposed by Sigmund Freud in 1920 in Beyond the Pleasure Principle, where in his first published reference to the term he wrote of the ‘opposition between the ego or death instincts and the sexual or life instincts’. The death drive opposes Eros, the tendency toward survival, propagation, sex, and other creative, life-producing drives. The death drive is sometimes referred to as “Thanatos” in post-Freudian thought, complementing “Eros.”
These life and death rhythms are natural cycles that we all pass through. When we are generous everything in life flows from “Eros.” Every day, ask others what you can do for them and everything will flow to you, as your creativity flows to them. What you give you receive.
The opposite of greed is generosity.
The opposite of anger is compassion.
The opposite of ignorance is wisdom.
If your focus is on what you can bring to life rather than what you can get, everything will always come to you.
In life rather than gossip, which is an aspect of Thanatos, it is important to work together as a team to support each other when you get into the self-destructive energy. This usually happens just after everything begins to go better than we are comfortable with. Those times when things are going far too well for comfort and then you want to self-destruct.
We never really do anything on our own. There is always the support of friends, family and the community moving us forward.
What are you grateful for today? Gratitude is a tool that puts us in the flow of Eros.
