Recently I found a YouTube interview with author James Redfield about his new book, The 12th Insight. This has made me want to re-read some of his previous books so that I can be ready for the consciousness shared in his most recent book. His books have helped me on my individual spiritual journey, and the journey of many of my close friends also.
His response when asked by MysticMonkey “Do you think we have enough energy collectively to live “The Twelfth Insight?” really stuck a chord with me.
“Absolutely, if we do it personally. You know … we can’t rely on collective energy anymore. We have to be net givers of energy not receiving of energy from other people, you follow me? (yes) So this is really about, you know, stop thinking about this theory of it all. Stop… wanting to get a group that will help us remember to get it together, stop thinking about all that and start actually practicing it personally so that… it becomes contagious to other people from us. …So we’re not waiting around for someone else to help us. But we’re actually building this way of life … and sort of radiating it out for everyone else to see and be listed by. I think that’s our great calling right now. And what will happen of course is that the more people doing then the more it becomes contagious to more people. All the group efforts will happen synchronistically to solve the problems in this world. But it begins with the individual with a kind of disciplined search for this larger consciousness. And again it’s very simple, if you make the decision to live your life authentically and openly and all you’re thinking about is how you can be of service to the people that you relate to everyday then that intuitive guidance of what to do and say comes as a result of that.”
What an inspiring call to action!
The interview is in two parts and I found worthwhile insights in both parts. Ironically I discovered all of this because of an ad on Facbook. Synchronicities can eventuate in any form, the trick is to listen and be open to them. It’s this attitude that has helped me to where I am today, with dreams of a brighter, more exciting, and better than I can currently imagine future.
James Redfield has a facebook page if you’re interested in updates, including details of the Global Prayer Project.
Why are you sharing spirituality on your business page? If you’re wondering why I’m putting this on my business page, that’s fair enough really. As I see it my business is an extension of me, my beliefs and my attitudes and values. It’s why I want to live a more ethical life and introduce others to ethical products that they can afford. My intuition guides me everyday. It helps me paint, create and channel things into reality that make people happy. Happier people means a happier, safer and more positive world. I decided to work for myself for many reasons, one of which was the soul-less employment I had experienced in the past. It was a means to gain finances as my attempts to genuinely help people were seen as ‘overservicing’ and time-wasting. I’ve finally come to the realisation that life is what I make of it. I can create my own opportunities to live and work how I want to, and need to. In the future I plan for this business to grow to a point that I can bring others in to experience a positive and supportive work environment too. I trust that synchronicity will brill me what I need, when I need it, including the right people to enrich my life and my business. I hope and pray that I can always be open to receiving positive energy from the source and sharing what I can with others. If I can do this I will be satisfied, and that’s why I share my personal spiritual beliefs on my business page, because without them there would be no business.
Peace and love to all who have read this far!!
