Have you ever gone shopping for the perfect gift for someone you love and spent hours walking around the store, only to return home exhausted and empty-handed?
The necessity of always getting things right, and never being wrong, spills over to every area of life. For instance, it’s impossible to create your life when you’re so busy…well, trying to get the right result. However, if you can be right or wrong, all kinds of different choices open up.
“I’m more interested in engaging in things than I am in being right,” founder of Access Consciousness, Gary Douglas, said on this month’s Creative Edge of Consciousness telecall.
“If you engage with each and every person you come in contact, what you end up doing is creating a different reality for them.”
Who or what can you engage with that will create a better world?
Engaging with people is about seeing their value. There is no judgment, but rather a curiosity about what’s motivating their choices. And, it’s a two-way street because when you engage with people, they want to do things for you.
The flipside with engagement is, you have to give up hiding and all the ways you try to disappear in the crowd.
Gary asked, “How much of your energy are you using to hide you, so you don’t have to engage so you never have to be a gift?”
The problem is, if you’re not willing to be the gift, you won’t choose to be as different as you are.
Most people spend their entire lives trying to fit in while others defy custom and tradition, in order to stand out from the crowd.
“Standing out is not being different—standing out is standing out,” Gary explained. “Why do you need to stand out? To prove that you’re different.”
“If you have to prove it, then you’ve already decided that you’re not different,” Access Choice Of Possibilities Facilitator Brendon Watt added.
Creation in motion
What gift are you, that you refuse to be, that is so needed the earth will not survive without it? Every time you come to a conclusion, every time you come to a decision, every time you have to be right you’re not being a contribution to the earth.
So, don’t look for a result, just create whatever change the earth can have.
“If you have a target about it you’re trying to control what the earth can do,” Gary pointed out.
“You’re trying to see the result that’s created not that your creation started something in motion. The awareness doesn’t complete but it was still a choice and it created something.”
And, you can always ask, is there anything else I need to do or be here?
