I think this is the most important question we can ever ask – about anything: “Why do I want this?” “Why do I react like this?” “Why do I do what I do?”
Little children ask “why” all the time and it usually drives adults crazy because at one point we can’t answer anymore. This is the point where it is smart to say “I don’t know…”
While training to become a therapist, I learned about communication skills in relation to a client. In this training we were taught never to ask why; because it is too pushy, forces the client’s hand…Whatever. Instead you should ask round-about questions such as; “what would it do to you if…”. I am fine with this but I truly don’t understand the taboo around “why“. It is a simple, straightforward question that really puts things into perspective.
The why is what drives us, our motivation and our lust. Without a why, there is no forward motion. It is the best question if you are looking for information, any information; “why does the sun go up?” If you no longer have a curiosity to why things happen (or don’t) you are in a rut or a depression. You have stopped moving forward and life is probably rather bleak. You are not interested in knowledge, understanding or change and you probably lost connection with yourself.
When I ask you: “What is your dream?” and you need ages to think of something, you have a problem. If you finally come up with an answer but don’t understand why you want it, it will never happen. We move forward on our why’s; by knowing and understanding what we are looking for we can make it happen. If you are just looking to get rich, it won’t happen. But if you can figure out why you want to get rich, it might happen. The same goes for everything; if you don’t know why, how will you ever find a reason and motivation to do anything? Once you start asking why, you might even find that your wish or goal is quite different from what you originally thought and voilà! you learned something about yourself.
So; why am I writing this blog? Because it matters, the things I write about changed my life (and others) so much to the better and I want to share that. BUT, when I started writing this was not clear to me, I just wanted to make myself heard.
Go ahead; pick a topic in your life and ask the why’s, over and over again, until you reach your deepest want, lust or fear and you will find your road to success.
I don’t know about you, but I love browsing; books, clothes, flea-markets and blogs. Every now and then I come across some wonderful stuff such as in Cassiebehle’s blog. Some blogs I subscribe to and some I earmark for future visits.
Most of all I love browsing books, texts, words. There are so many people out there, saying such wise and clever things. Like the spot-on one-liners you find as you are browsing through an old book. I collect wisdom. I don’t care where it comes from; if it resonates in me, I’ll keep it. Honestly, sometimes the wisest, simplest and purest words come most unexpectedly from the oddest places.
Every time I buy a book I browse – for ages. I am easily attracted by color and imagery, so those books always get an extra look but to actually buy a book there needs to be something more, like a tingling in my spine from curiosity and, yes, Lust!
I love my computer and internet and all, the availability of information with just one click, I remember days of research in libraries, but I am a paper and pencil girl meself.
How do we create our lives / world? And with what motive or emotion? Do we create from fear or lust?
There is great talk and worry around the idea of 21 Dec 2012…according to the Mayan calendar. A lot of people believe this to be Armageddon (again) and that Earth will be wiped out, including, of course, humanity. If you take a look at the Mayan calendar system it clearly shows a cyclic belief; when something ends, something else begins. Maybe their belief is that this just starts all over, OR that this is the time for the next calendar revision since a new time is coming?
The Mayans aren’t the only culture speaking of 2012 as a special year, also Nostradamus speculated about this particular year. “The book of revelation” in the Bible is dusted off to present another view of these tidings: All what we know will fall apart, creating turmoil and suffering – only to be followed by a new dawning of consciousness, bringing Love and Truth.
So back to my original question: I believe thoughts are creative, that thoughts are vibrational and attractive in nature. Thoughts are movement and movement is creation. So with what kind of thought-patterns do we create our lives?
Most of us are programmed to fear; poverty, hunger, death, disease, pain, heart-ache, failure…on and on. From this basic programming we create our lives…to survive but nothing else. This is why we as humanity are falling apart, destroying our world and each-other. The biggest and most powerful of all creations from fear is money and the banking system…isn’t it interesting that is seems to be falling apart… The biggest fear to mankind is to not have enough. Well, there is enough, plenty enough for everybody.
I believe this is the time of Creative Change; The beginning of a new belief-system, the heightening of awareness. It is time to create the world from lust instead of fear. Fear is believing the world is going under in 2012, Lust is believing in a world-change in 2012. This said, people might still die, there might be pestilence and raging storms…I don’t know. But if there are, they will be the result of creating from fear. Something always has to go to make place for the new – Death and Birth.
A Constant Cycle of Creation
