You are more powerful, more capable and ingenious than you thought you are. All it takes for you to get in touch with your inner resources is a change in perspective.
Usually our best power is hidden in our ‘blind spot’, or the psychological ‘shadow’. One way to tap it is by trying our Ark Journey. After befriending the shadow, try to see where in your life you could use its power in a positive way.
We tried Dream-e, our dream interpretation app at the London Dream Cafe Meetup today. It was a success. People were very happy, and the technology was able to guide them to find the meaning of their dreams. In one case it even captured something what we might have missed or overlooked. Good sign. Hopefully we will open it to beta-testing soon. For now it runs on Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux, with plans for iOS (iphone, ipad) and Android versions in the future.
Instead of supporting companies to find ways to sell people more things they don’t need, why not support an informed population of individuals to find out who they are and what their life purpose is, and then support businesses to focus on creating the tools these individuals need to find out and to fulfill their life purpose.
This is what data mining and advanced pattern recognition and understanding technologies would be used for under this paradigm.
Dreams often have a much deeper meaning than assumed. The same dream image has different meanings for different people. This is why we need much more than a dream-dictionary to make sense of it.
Most of the time dreams reveal aspects of ourselves that we are not very aware of. It presents them as other people, places, or objects, like a magic mirror, where different part of our self can be interacted with and experienced.
Other times, dreams give you valuable information about situations you are confronting in life, that you may not be able to see with your day-to-day mind, but are aware of it at a deeper level.
Dreams are great tool to learn about our inner world. The dynamics of this inner world are always reflected in our everyday life.
For example, if you need to slow down a bit and rest, you may get a dream about someone being lazy. In real life, you may catch a cold. and be in bed for a few days, or something would happen that would make you stop what you are doing. Usually you get the dream first, and if you understood that your ‘wiser’ self is telling you to slow down, and you listened to the advice, then the cold, or other events may not be necessary.
But how can you get the meaning of the dream? Especially since ‘lazy’ is something bad you don’t want to identify with.
Well, the answer could be as easy as trying to find the neutral, non-judgmental idea that ‘lazy’ could represent.
This may not happen in one step, but a few, as in the following dialogue:
- What does lazy mean?
- Someone who doesn’t do things they need to do, but prefers to rest.
- So what is the less judgmental aspect of that ?
- Someone who rests.
Well, it’s not always as easy as that, you get the idea.
There is an acute need for a paradigm shift in humanity’s consciousness. The symptoms of stagnation have been here for a while. Mainstream culture keeps rehashing the same themes over and over, hoping to get some more life out of things that have been successful in the past.
The problem is… we’re not in the past anymore. What is the point for the 80-‘s to come back ? What is the point of remaking ‘Blade Runner’ ? What is the point of the same video games but with different names, same movies but with different special effects, the same old – same old rebranded as new ?
There is no point. Except that maybe we need to look at ourselves, and change the culture to reflect our true selves.
And I am not talking only art and entertainment here, but science too. For too long we had a science that was purely materialistic, with rigid institutions that would suppress anything which does not agrees with the established dogma or the views of their commercial sponsors.
The shift is happening, slowly but surely, everywhere, but you will not read about it in the mainstream media.
So what is the new paradigm?
It is for our life to reflect the totality of our deeper selves.
I could have easily named this Business vs. Unconditional Love, based on how most business is being done today.
The way I think business should be is like a dance. Ever tried Argentine Tango ? If you did you will know what I mean.
In any couples dance, both partners want to dance, or to create a dance. I see the dance as something in itself. Just like a relationship, there are the two participants, and then there is the relationship, as an entity in itself (sometimes manifested into a child, a project, a dance).
In a true dance, nobody is trying to take advantage of the other, or make a profit off of them. (Yes, I do think the idea of chasing a profit at any cost is retarded.)
In a dance, everyone tries to be the best they can be, letting their inspiration flow spontaneously, while still within the structure created by the knowledge of the dance moves, the flow of the music, the ability of their partner, the other dancing couples on the floor, and everything there is.
The reward is beyond words.
The partner here is both your customer, and your business partner. But especially your customer.
This is the intention with which I think business or any kind of relationship should be done. Unconditionally, for the love of the dance and transcendence of boundaries.
Good luck, and may the dance be with you .
Level of consciousness is the degree to which you experience/perceive your connection to everything else in the universe.
The higher your level of consciousness, the more ‘consciousness frequencies’ you can tune into.
The more frequencies you can tune into, the more levels of being you can experience.
If you can truly tune into a rock, the rock and you become one, and from outside it will be perceived that you can move the rock (telekinesis). Same way you can interact with everything. The key to ‘tune into’ something is ‘unconditional love’ or complete acceptance towards that something.
Experiments have showed that becoming one / blending your consciousness with cells in a petri dish will make those cells listen to your consciousness and increase or decrease their growth rate by as much as 50%.
Now think about the effects we unconsciously may have on our own selves and on each other, depending of our level of awareness (or consciousness).
Talking to someone the other day, this came up. That more and more people are starting to realize that money, although they can bring you comfort, they cannot bring you peace (of mind or heart).
I think most people mistake peace for comfort, and spend most of their life trying to bring about comfort, when what they really need is peace of mind.
So, my advice to whoever might be reading this, forget about comfort, find and do what makes your soul sing with joy, and regardless of your financial situation, you will be happy, for you would have found peace.
When one is forced to wake up, one has to go in, to get in touch with one’s true nature and life purpose.
Then one can change over night.
Ask yourself, what has real value to you?
Why did you choose to be born and come to maturity in these times?
What is specific to you that you have to offer to a world such as the one we live in?
