Your vibration, your creativity, your truth value all depends on your cone of vision… But until you see that you have a narrow cone of vision, that you look at things with narrow cone of vision, or a narrow filter, you won’t want to make it wider.
Wide cone of vision means inclusive… narrow cone of vision is exclusive… exclusive of areas that you KNOW don’t matter, don’t belong, or you don’t like them. Exclusive because you KNOW the answer…
The most exciting insights first show up in the corner of your eyes… Which means they are literally outside of your cone of vision.
One way I see this is how attached you are to one area of life, or one way to do it, or one problem you have.
For some: it is their soul correction. They scratch the wound until it bleeds, and neither the soul correction issue moves, nor their lives move… it is a strategy.
Strait and narrow is transferred on land. It may be narrow, but it is not the strait. Strait means a narrow path of water between land masses.
If you are on a ship, talking about the land is irrelevant, won’t allow you to pass.
For others it is laziness.
But for most, it’s the soul correction…
Soul correction is one way the “Universe” is telling us that there is some design… otherwise soul correction categories would not exist. Or horoscope signs.
And most soul corrections narrow your cone of vision to not see all of what can be seen. Not even look.
I am a “Forget Thyself” soul correction. I need people to condescend upon, feel superior to.
I avoid people in position of authority. And I have been avoiding my older brother. I have dug up some information that could be useful for her wife’s health, but decided that he’ll knock me for it… so I didn’t do it.
This week I called him, and he was gracious, maybe even grateful. I wasn’t superior. Instead I looked wider, and was helpful, loving, sharing? Without the big ego.
Summon different ways of being… wider cone of vision…
Because it really not physical seeing as much as spiritual seeing.
In the sentence: how you do anything is how you do everything is true, because of your narrow cone of vision with regards to approach, attitude, being.
Giving lip service to higher states of being is not being that way. Talking about flying isn’t…
You know your dominant being: cheerful, gloomy, withholding, belligerent, self-aggrandizing, slimy, slippery, avoiding, domineering, judgmental, fearful, suppressed, tentative, deceitful, delusional, arrogant…
I am actually looking at actual people in that list above.
You know who you are.
Sometimes I give exercises to expand your repertory of ways to be.
Like most actors, you play life the same way, no matter what the movie.
And then are a few actors, very few, Meryl Streep, for example, who can change the how.
You are not locked in… just there is more pull to be one way. Boring, predictable, lifeless.
And what you see while you are that one-track pony is a very narrow swath of life… The narrower the range of being, the lower your vibration.
So, how do you widen it?
I would start with the question: what am I not seeing? What am I not even looking at?
Other useful questions: how could I be that would allows more of the Universe to reveal itself to me?
Reading is an amazing tool. Tai says the biographies let you learn ways of being by osmosis.
There may be truth to that. I am reading, little by little, Sam Walton’s book. For me the most unfamiliar way of beings he demonstrates is being interested in what people have to say, but not dominated. Being someone whom people tell things. Open, innocent, interested, appreciative. The opposite of my soul correction. So I am practicing that. So far it isn’t going too well. Especially the appreciative is hard for me. But I am less far from appreciative than I have ever been. I may even sound appreciative… but I know that the beingness is not there yet.
Appreciating another make my genes squirm. It feels to them that it means that I am not to be appreciated.
Ego is what the genes want. Either you win or you lose, black and white.
Widening your cone of vision is training your genes to allow ambivalence, allow peaceful coexistence of conflicting ides, feeling, attitudes.
Unless you train the genes you’ll stay who you have always been.
The training is in the dominion of being… appreciative, grateful, graceful, allowing, nimble, etc.
You don’t have to. But this is the work. The work that will save the planet, the work that will take some humans to the next stage of evolution.
People who have a wider range of being (the number of capacities they have open) are superior to people who limp along with five, maybe seven capacities.
Your narrow cone of vision also means you live your life in tiny fragments: your life is compartmentalized: your gains in one area don’t reflect in others, because they are separated by this fragmentation.
You learn something and you don’t integrate it into your whole life… it may just stay in your mind… or it gets used in one area, but not the other.
And unfortunately happiness is impossible unless you have a whole life that works, a whole life that is on the same level. The “but” in the sentence: I am happy but… is or are the areas where you are not happy… Sum total is “not happy”
PS: One of the ways you could attempt to change the state of things is by inventing a context for your life. I’ll teach it this coming Sunday. It cost money… because it is a training, it is a workshop. If you don’t trust me to deliver value… please go away. Don’t come and read my site for free… you will get what you pay… nothing. You are worth nothing to yourself, and you are worth nothing for me. You are not worth a dime… So, please do me a favor, and don’t come back.
Of course you may be busy on Sundays… and you have proved to me and to yourself that you are willing to invest in yourself. I wasn’t talking to you.
I was talking to the person who thinks that reading articles will change their life… not in a million years. You read with your mind, and it becomes more cluttered there… no change, nothing.
OK, if you are still here, than maybe I would enjoy you coming to the workshop.
Here… write to me first… so I can decide if I want you or not.
