@coolmoss I too realized I still had a disconnected relationship to some areas of my life. Wanting to adopt a connected perspective is already enough to start moving in that direction. For me it doesn’t happen instantly, but rather it’s a journey. Two years ago I realized I was too ambitions in my carrer, I was thinking about my own success rather than about being of service to my clients. Once I saw that, I realized that was not the person I wanted to be and how I wanted to act. For me the connected view really emerged from that: being benevolent to others, being of service of their higher good (as well as mine), dropping all my attempts to control Life and rather let it show me where I am needed and for what purpose.
I also was inspired by the Tao Te’Ching by Lao Tseu and the whole concept of non-doing non-action. I understood it’s not about never doing anything, but rather never doing anything in an attempt to control a person, a situation or an outcome. Nassim’s approach shows us that the Universe is a self organizing system. That means, by definition, that it doesn’t need to be controlled. Whenever we attempt to improve things (cutting grass and trees to make a “beautiful” garden, telling our kid how they should be etc…) we actually disrupt the natural flow of life and harm all these beings. So now I’m learning to never act in order to produce an outcome I percieve as more desirable. If things don’t turn out the way I want them, I try my best to let it happen and not force anything, knowing that it will all make sense down the line in the whole picture.
Right now I also percieve a shift in values. When I watch films I used to like I just don’t resonate anymore. Whenever there is a scene of war, violence, intreague just for the sake of it, I find it offputting and can’t enjoy the overall story. I realize our films are filled with values proper to a disconnected mind and I can’t relate anymore. I wish we had more inspiring films like the Celestine Prophecy, to give an example. Something inspiring, positive and talking about spiritual evolution, cooperation, heart connection etc. I guess, it will come down the line as more people awaken.
