How can we inspire our unique evolutionary purpose?

Posted by on Oct 23, 2015 in Aspects of life

An inner listening environment offers the voices of judgement, cynicism and fears a safe space to relax and reconnect to their original purpose in our life. How can we invite our personality to inspire for the highest evolutionary purpose for our soul and physical body? Our personality is our magic tool to learn to maximally experience live as a soul partnering with a physical body.   And it is quite an endeavour: Voices of judgement tend to block our ability to change our images and beliefs. Voices of cynicism destroy our natural empathy and our ability to look through the eyes of the other. Voices of fear make it hard for us to let go of our habitual patterns to react to what is happening to us and around us. The invitation is to create a listening environment for the frightened parts of our personality.   Voices of judgment The voices of judgment continuously express judgment towards ourselves and others. They reinforce the beliefs and images we have of the world, ourselves, and others. Examples of those voices are: “You are not okay as you are!” “You do not belong!” “You make a fool of yourself!” These voices affect our ability to open our reason. Opening our reason means to create space in our brain for our marvellous ideas and concepts, give space to our dreams for our life. The act of opening our reason makes that we allow a creative flow to move through us in connection with ourselves and others. This act creates the possibility of a sacred listening environment.   Voices of cynicism The voices of cynicism make us feel ashamed of who and how we are in the world. They trouble our sense of being responsible and assimilate what happens to us and around us. They can sound like: “You don’t assume you can open your heart without the risk to be hurt!” “The world is not a safe place and never will be, this world is not for softies!” “Stop trying to be so kind and gentle!” “Survival of the fittest!” These voices point to our wounding, our pain bodies and stories. They convince us that our natural needs to be seen, to be safe, to be recognized, to be appreciated are endangered and that we have to get into competition with others, close our emotion and stop trying to look at the world through the eyes of the other. They prevent an easy gratification of our natural human needs.   Voices of fear The voices of fear pretend to protect us from exposing ourselves into the world, from taking the risk to be abandoned, annihilated, rejected, betrayed, humiliated. Those voices can sound like: “You will be abandoned!” “You will be rejected when you keep on showing so much vulnerability!” “People will betray you and you will have asked for it!” “I have said...

Our Physical Bodies: Complex, Evolving and Living Systems!

Posted by on Sep 26, 2015 in Aspects of life

Self-organization, wholeness and evolutionary purpose are embedded in our physical bodies and the resources to creatively express anew organizations and systems.   Our world news powerfully reveals the ecological, social and spiritual divides. These divides represent the separation between self and our planet, self and other and self and self. Consider the possibility to turn the camera around from what is happening outside of us to our physical body and be open to its amazing potential and its offerings. Our physical body is not a machine; it is a complex, intelligent living system. A cell has a high level of self-organization in order to deal with what is happening to her and around her. A cell strives for inner wholeness and a deep connection and love with all the cells around her. A cell continuously listens to the calling of the living system from which she is a part.   Our physical body is an intelligent being. Our physical body changes without us being able to affect that, our physical body is an intelligence of its own right and will change according to this intelligent design. Our physical body is not a machine like accepted in the Newtonian view. Fifty trillion individual cells define our physical body. They organize themselves as a complex, participating, interconnected, interdependent and continuously changing and evolving system. They mirror us constantly the structures and processes of self-organization, wholeness, and evolutionary process which define a Teal Organization as described by Frederic Laloux in his extra-ordinary book: Reinventing Organizatons. Our mind/personality often is a disturbing force in this fascinating eco-system.   Structures and processes reflecting self-organization. There are to many to highlight them all, let us focus on the nucleus and the cell membrane.The nucleus of the cell is not hierarchical more important than any other part of the cell. In the interplay with the rest of the cell, a protein switch activates specific areas of our DNA when that is of service for the highest good of all. There is no so-called dominator hierarchy and at the same time there are many natural hierarchies with organs as collections of cells that are very skilled in a specific area like renal function or endocrine function. Translated to an organization, we can state that a cell can take on a specific role through which parts of her DNA she activates and she can switch roles when that is appropriate, she is not defined by her role. The cell membrane is how the cell engages with its environment. The cell membrane is the boundary with other cells, with the outside world and the inside world, you could state with all that happens to and around the cell affects the cell membrane. This fluid structure of cholesterol, phospholipids and proteins enables the emerging of a practice of facilitating welcoming all that is happening to be part of the self-organizing...
