Hello “ordinary guru seeking” tribe member. Answers come in abundance when we dare ask the right questions. Clint has a great question (see below)
I would like to get your take on something. What does it mean when you hear the statement, “Be more daring when pursuing a better life”? I think it means to be willing to double your efforts. Is that correct? My friend says it means to stop doubling your efforts and try something new.
Any ideas? Clint R.
If you’re going to be more daring, you must dare to ‘do less’ of those trivial things with which you fill up your day. You would be startled to find out how many trivial rituals the average person participates in daily so that he may convince himself and others that he is busy, busy, busy. And you would be even more startled, Clint, if you were to actually see how worthless most of those rituals are when it comes to a person’s growth and advancement in life.
“Being more daring” is daring to label your artificial rituals for what they are – fake moves that get you no closer to the success you dream of achieving than does the Howler Monkey get when it screeches, while jumping up and down on a branch. The monkey howls and screeches and jumps frantically, thinking that somehow “that activity” is actually helping him shake the fruit off the branch in the tree next to him. Need I say more?
Blessings to you, Clint … Rob
Have you noticed that useless activity that burns up your energy and wastes your day? If you haven’t, then you are being wonderfully efficient … or … perhaps you should take a look again.
Blessings & Love to all of you. Rob
PS Useless rituals are a way of distracting ourselves from our own dreams of winning. Can man be that foolish? Hmmm
