Think Tank, Part Five

Process Core Principles
The steps we go thru

Permission Transaction
Wholeness, Allness
Truth-telling, no matter how terrible, Be who you are – all of who you are - Big Self/Little self, both/and
Validation – Accepting/Loving What is no matter how bad
Need to Choose
Can’t Know
Surrender to It
Big Self/Formless – Little Self/Form
Pain is a Threshold
Grow into Big Self, Expand Comfort Zone
Die to the small self to move to the big self, help people thru the grief and pain with lots of things including vision, surrender, optimism, empathy
Opt more for the Formless
Optimism, Vision
Cultural Creatives/Cultural Constraints
Own Your Power, Take Responsibility, Stop Being a Victim

Projection makes Perception - What we put out, from the inside, is what we see on the outside. So do the inner work first, and the outer will take care of itself. Go to the connected soulful place and do from there. It’s like if the movies out of focus, you don’t go up to the screen (outer) to fix it, you go to the projection booth (the heart, mind, soul).

The Three Ws – Who, What & Where - It doesn’t matter what you do, but who you do it with – ego or spirit; it doesn’t matter what you do, but where you come from – inner or outer, spirit or world/ego. Coming from the ego/world place creates more of the same; it’s tinkering with the images on the screen. Come from a different place, the unknown, mysterious (to the ego), spiritual place and we can not only get it in focus, we can change the movie. If you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got.

Pain - What does pain mean? Progress – going in the right direction; or failure – wrong direction and punishment?

Right & Wrong - There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’; there just is, and is, is always ‘right,’ just what’s there to work with. Our choices, feelings, beliefs and stories make it ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. Use other words for ‘right’ and ‘wrong,’ such as ‘accurate’ and ‘inaccurate;’ ‘working’ and ‘not working;’ ‘peace, compassion and flow’ and ‘strife, striving and stress.’
