That may sound like and arrogant, or naive statement; but is it?
Notice I didn’t say winning for Romney or winning for Obama. Why? That is the key point of this new idea. But let’s do some background first. (Update: PS I started this the day I posted this blog … here’s some interesting results: Copy of an email ”
I know who I want to win. I’ve actually done lots and lots to promote them. Now that’s relative to me and what I’ve done before; it’s NOT relative to someone out there who’s fully into it; there are obviously many who’ve done infinitely more. Aside from a book, most of what came from me has behind the scenes stuff; efforts at influencing ‘the influence” stuff. In that I’ve made some headway, but I realized it’s clearly not enough; the polls are close and all I’ve done likely doesn’t move it a fraction of a point one way or the other.
I’ve loved truth and it has become the central focus of my life, business and goals. It’s a long held believe, that in the end the truth will win out; it has to. Even with our best efforts, lies creep into belief systems; and I’ve recently found myself stuck with the mistaken assumption that ‘truth’ should win. The limbic system, if you understand about brains, immediately codes that up into ‘the truth will win.’ In this world, that’s a clear ‘set-up’ for disappointment; and that’s a pretty the common dish served here on planet earth.
Thus in unconsciously holding the view ‘the truth will win out’ even in the short run, I’m wrong. Reality has proven that assumption wrong many, many times. It seems like my debate teacher was right. He said about ‘debates': “The Best Liar Wins”.
Anyway, to keep the story going to it’s climax: I find myself less than two months to the election and I was done. Meaning, I didn’t know what else to do that could realistically effect the outcome; if anything I’d done had made the slightest dent. My ‘limited’ outreach was out stretched; I don’t poses the resources to make meaningful media changes; and I’m out of ideas…especially those that fall on deaf ears.
In addition to that the outcome looks fearful; in that I share with the nation: people on both sides fear the outcome.
So, even knowing it was a futile effort, I sent one last email blast to my ‘influencers’ ; it was actually a rendition of a profound but virtually un-received blast before; they’d not be ‘influenced’. I thought it was critical, and truly know it is; but it’s also very difficult idea to convey to convey the power of ‘conversational hypnosis’ to most people, especially to the masses. Thus I knew, before I sent the “last email”, it wasn’t really going to make any difference. And a realistic assessment of my power was there right in front of me in it’s undeniable glow of truth; I had no real power, or any real ability. to change the course of world events in the direction of truth. I sat deflated and burned out. Accurately or inaccurately realizing the insignificance of all my power, it didn’t matter; I was done. All that was left was to come to grips with the inevitable: an election I really can’t control. It was a microcosm of a world I, in truth, see to have little influence over. My only viable next step seemed ‘acceptance’ of the inevitable.
But in totally ‘giving up'; sometimes that act, in and of itself, does clear the chalk board. I, in this case was left with a total erasure, a blank slate. In the book Aladdin’s Lamp Unleashed, the desired results generally happen when some finally stops ‘trying’ and gives up ‘thinking’ about it. Though I wrote the book and successfully taught the courses to others, implementation in my own life does not hold that stellar a score card. Personal use requires constant vigilance; it requires cleaning out the lies that creep in.
In the middle of the night I woke up with ‘The Answer”. I’d come up with (or been given) an 100% guaranteed win; I couldn’t loose; no way Jose (and I’m not even sure a Jose is running). And furthermore, I was 100% sure I was going to do it. So what is this way???
A Real Solution To Election Worry!
What are you Choosing???
#1. Or #2.
Path One (1) Entails:
*Simply keep doing what you’re doingand HOPING for the best!
In other words, it’s about trusting in your own understanding and the understanding of those around you. It’s really about wishing, hoping, wondering and worrying if we are smart enough to pull it off with own talents and power!
Path Two (2) Entails:
Consider the outcome of each choice! Evaluate:
How To Do Path Two 2:
“God inhabits the praises of His people”!
It sounds easy and it is easy but there are clear caveats to this!
Caveats: (in addition to ‘being one of His People”)
