10 Jul Being vs Doing
I have noticed that, over the course of time, the person you are as opposed to necessary what you are doing changes. When the person you are changes, then everything around you changes, too. It seems that there is a very specific resonance that you create by who you are that in turn, resonates, fails to resonate or even causes a dissonance with the world you live in. By this, I mean your work, your relationships, your family – everything that surrounds you and makes up your day to day experience of life.
When you change who you are, your resonance changes and your world changes in response. In this sense, who you are changes first, followed closely by what you do.
Did I mention this blog post was going to be kinda technical?
Changing Who You Are
Recently, as perhaps you’ve read about in other posts, I went through a detox. In a detox, you’re aiming to remove the toxins from your body, as well as anything else that doesn’t belong. In my case, that involved some graphic experiences with parasites and gall stones. You’d be amazed at what builds up inside your body as the decades pass!
As the detox progressed and those toxins, parasites and stones were released, by emotional body began to release its toxins, parasites and stones as well. It was amazing to watch as, particularly through meditation and conversation, various part of who I was began to emerge for consideration.
In the end, I was able to release / discard some old pieces that I no longer wanted. In particular, I was able to release a lot of long term tension that had made me easily triggered in certain situations. For example, I’m not great when people talk during movies! And yet, it’s not the most important thing in the world.
Aligning to Purpose
In other gentle revelations, I realized that I am done with taking on clients and projects that lack purpose. Instead, I will find clients and projects with conscious intentions to make a positive difference in the world. I’m talking about groups like Game Changers 500, who aim to align companies engaged in that kind of work through a series of qualifying badges.
What was interesting was that once I came to that realization, it changes who I am. Having changed who I am, the physical world was swift to respond. Clients without purpose have begun to shift, allowing me to drive their more purposeful work. Clients with purpose have begun to find me, drawn to that particular resonance.
In turn, I’ve begun to express that resonance more clearly through everything I think, write, speak about and present. My web site will change, my books will change – everything will change to be consistent with this latest evolution of who I am.
So much positive, resonant change! It’s been an interesting month.
