In the documentary film, ‘I am’ by director Tom Shadyac, he asks the question, “what is wrong with the world and how do we fix it?” That is without doubt the most important question we can ask, but where and how do we start?
I have another question, “When am I going to be happy?”, actually that’s not the question, because I’m happy when I get what I think I want, but it never lasts. The real question is “when am I going to be joyful”, full of joy? And the answer is… when I re-cognize that ‘who’ “I am”, is already joyous! Joy is not outside of me. Love is not outside of me. Passion is not outside of me. Nothing that is real is outside of me. My only problem is that I have failed to recognize these things, but that does not mean they are not there. Well if that’s true then why don’t I feel it, you ask?
First we have to recognize the way we’re doing it doesn’t work. It’s easy to see, the world as we made it, isn’t working. We’re going to have to do things a little differently. We’re going to need a method that works.
Where’d it all come from?
Look around at everything you see. How did it all come about? If you look, you’ll find that everything started with an idea. The idea got developed in the mind of whatever created it. And finally became something physical by some action in the material world. Everything that ever came into existence came as a result of that formula, including us. So there is an order form to creation. If there is an order form to creation then there must be an order form for our lives as well… and it’s the same form (creation in-form-a-tion).
What’s wrong with the world?
What’s wrong with the world? We never developed our relationship to common sense. What is our common sense you ask? Our common sense is the “idea” instilled (inwardly stilled) in us, of who we are, our connection to our source. We “thought” we could disconnect ourselves from that which created us and we made ourselves into mini-gods, each trying to run the world, according to our various beliefs. Yet none of our imaginings has any effect on that which created us.
How do we learn?
As children, we learned that our resistance to gravity had no effect on it, but by co-operating with it, it allowed us to accomplish many things. So too, we can learn that by co-operating with our creator’s idea of who we are, there is no limit to what we can accomplish. (“experience is the best teacher”)
How do we change?
This is transformational living, living from a new perspective, and the old beliefs don’t die easy, so we need a system that we can utilize to get us back on track when we wander off in our imaginings. We will need to …. take it A.P.A.R.T…. so it can come together.
A.P.A.R.T. is a method that can be used to co-operate with the system (order form) that is already present. APART is an acronym for Awareness, Pause, Ask or acknowledge, Receive or remember, and Trust or take action. This method can be used by anyone and will work every time, even if you don’t recognize or believe it. Why, because these are universal truths, principles, that never fail, in the proper order. But don’t take my word for it… try them out… try them repeatedly…. They cannot fail to connect you if you apply them in your life. (I don’t have to believe in gravity to co-operate with it… but, it gets painful when I don’t… and my world expands when I do)
We facilitate workshops and presentations for groups or individuals to help you experience these truths. Using metaphor, creativity, and group participation we can experience these truths in a group setting! We were created as a group and so we gro-up together!
