Day 218: Freedom within Structure Part 2 - The Afterlife Assumption

Image
"Freedom is not license, and does not mean no structure. It simply means flexibility, that one can move from one structure to another easily – from no-structure to structure, from structure to no-structure. If your freedom is afraid of being in a structure, then it is not freedom at all.
"Just try to understand this, and the split will disappear. It is not there in your being, but just in your mind, just an idea. Drop the idea and enjoy freedom, and sometimes discipline.
"Discipline has its own beauty, it is not all slavery. And freedom has its own dangers and is not all beautiful. A real person is always capable of infinite discipline and infinite freedom – he is not a slave or an addict to anything."
-OSHO

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to connect the word Freedom with the belief / idea / fantasy that when I die, I will be 'free' from what this world exists as, and I won't have to deal with 'this world' anymore

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to connect the word Freedom with an idea / picture / fantasy of what I believe to be a 'higher dimension filled with love and bliss', that I see in my mind, in which I am no longer subject to t…

Day 216: The Paycheck Conspiracy and the Value of Life

Image
When you have a job, you receive a paycheck. You are being payed because your Name, your Number, which is associated with your particular Physical Body has received a 'check' mark, indicating you are providing sufficient value to a company / individual in terms of performing a function that helps generate them a profit for themselves.

Within this, the easier it is to replace you, the easier it is to train someone else to fill your position, the more 'fish there are in the sea' to fill your job, for example the job of a fast food cashier, then the smaller your paycheck will be, because your individual, particular value as a Physical Body is very low within the relationship of You to the Profit the company providing the job is looking to make. You are expendable. You are of little to no consequence to the company. If you quit your job, there is very little consequence the company must deal with - they simply hire another person off the street to fill your job.

Day 215: Ending War and Manifesting Peace on Earth

Image
If we're ever going to stop War we're going to have to go to the origin point of war, the source of war, the motivation behind war, the interests that drive us to war, and we're going to have to REMOVE that point from ourselves, from each of us. Those of us who will see a world of Peace -- will have to have Given up who we've been / become as a Product of a Society that allows any form of Value that supports War in any form. We will have to have changed Ourselves.

Let's investigate this further.

Is the Government the source of War? Is Obama the problem? Was George W. Bush the problem?
Was Hitler the problem? Was Saddam Hussein the problem? Is Syria the problem? Are the Corporations the problem? Is Religion to blame?

Are these Warlike government leaders simply 'bad apples' coming from a line of very clever people who managed to get ahold of money and power in a world of peaceful, harmonious, caring people, who then messed up the world all by themselves, whi…

Day 214: Desteni as a Higher Education with Integrity Part 3: Literacy

Image
Continuing with sharing how applying the Desteni Tools has supported me in developing skills associated normally with the training received by students in elite private schools.

As presented by John Taylor Gatto as a result of his years of research, the second principle that sets the curriculum of America's elite private boarding schools apart from that of the public schools is the following:

2. Every graduate must have strong experience in the 'active literacies', with an emphasis on writing and public speaking.

These skills obviously would be beneficial to develop in preparation for entering the world / system, as they would assist in being able to effectively articulate one's self, write things like cover letters and proposals, etc, and with public speaking skills for example, that would open up a large area of career options as it would assist one to be able to establish connections more effectively, or work with your family's existing connections because - yo…
