Navigating the Challenge: A Spontaneous Three Step Approach to Liberation

Step One: Notice your challenge. Identify and name it. Begin the process of visualizing it 'against' you. You should have a real felt-sense

Step Two: Begin to let the tension in that felt sense go. Embrace your challenge in your mind. Simply capture and hold it gently, as though it were a baby animal.

Step Three: Move forward in time with your challenge-free visualizing process. Grow the challenge in your mind into a belligerent teenager. About ten seconds into the transformation process, notice that your challenge is fighting madly to escape your embrace. At this point, let it go, even if it means seeing it run wildly through the unsuspecting streets of some unpredictable urban wilderness- far outside the possibility of your control. You will soon arrive into what is a sense of s p a c i o u s n e s s, a felt sense of liberation, replacing the solid block which you brought to life as your former challenge. The block has melted. The entire wilderness is contained within you. What was ice has become water. Soon your challenge will be vapor, and your journey free from obstruction.

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More
