Respect = the activation device for the mind’s mirroring mechanism.
I realized this through my pursuits in music. It’s not all about the time put in I learned from much better musicians than myself, it’s the attitude of respect these cats have to the greats, the awe with which they speak of the amazing playing ability of studio musicians like The Funk Brothers reflects in the way they play. For instance, watching “Standing in the Shadows of Motown” today, to hear about the great bass playing of James Jamerson was awe inspiring, and it reflected in Bob Babbit’s playing.
Of course, it all depends on the individual. That’s just one example that came to mind. I’m sure you can think of many more viable ways of integrating this into your own life. The main idea is that if you want to achieve something, instead of competing with others trying to achieve it, respect all who have been successful and notice the positive qualities in your competitors and model them.
This could be applied to athletics, business, and more…
Stemming from my reading on NLP…and my time in Nashville with some great players.
Curiosity killed the cat. So what? I am a human being. I enjoy feline companionship as much as the next guy but today I am here to talk about the root of all human knowledge, advancement, and understanding. The force to save us from certain doom in our prehistoric days was our interest in the environment around us. What other creature can become so enthralled with the things and people surrounding it that its species develops a detailed science of every living thing, particle, atom, every element, microsecond of time, every bone and muscle of the human body, down to the tiny portion of the rat’s brain that causes its pleasure, habit creation, and addiction all at the same time?
Ever feel all tangled up about about something? Over time, just like the mass of cables we have connected to computers, speakers, amplifiers…our relationships and interactions with the world outside of us can also get a little “tangled” at times.
When you think about it, cords and cables are the “connectors” between different devices, and because of the law of entropy they will naturally tend to become bound in knots…removing these knots can be annoying, stressful, and painful.
I have been practicing the self-clearing methods of Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha in his book Divine Transformation and what the practice feels like to me is untangling all of these knots I have developed over time, these knots can be at the root of any fear, anxiety, or inability to act, as well as disharmony in relationships, anger, or frustration.
If you feel that something in life is just not flowing the way it used to, or have been unable to break certain barriers then I strongly believe Dr. Sha’s practice will help you. It is very simple and takes about 3 minutes a day. It involves asking for forgiveness, forgiving others, and calling upon Divine Light and Compassion to remove soul mind body blockages.
I will be sharing some of these clearing methods later. Check out Dr. Sha in the meantime!
