A nice moment today

Peaceful Moment in Newton

Peaceful Moment in Newton

It seems there has been a full rush the past ten years, three years, two years, six months, three months, two weeks, in escalating fashion. It seems, perhaps I pushed through to another level; and in that regard it is good to replenish, to pull in what we have learned in the process. One person, who I did some business with recently had it right in way, saying: “You are an artist.” An artist, with some science as well, lol. I guess, in some ways, I am an artist of sorts; an artist of humanity, in the best sense possibly.

Anyway, it is really nice to have some calm moments or three, under the tree, and all of that. I am wondering about drinking tap water at the moment. I can be very grateful for all of my experiences, as intense and varied as they can be. What a challenge the entire facet of what life is, and then finding our best way to live it. Peace seems a wonderful thing at the moment. Regards, Jon

Patience and perseverance it is:

Today, I reached an insight in a situation that I have been working on for a while, that was astonishing and unexpected. It is funny, when you are working on something substantial, you can be close to the right answer for a long time; but not exactly on it. It is kind of like one of those games, where you have to get the ball, to fall into the hole. Sometimes, it can take a long time for the ball, to keep going by the hole, before it falls in.

I am not certain, as stepping back a tad, AND sleeping on it, may provide some further insight; still it seems possible. In any event, I read something recently that was inspiring, along the lines: “Don’t wait until you reach your goal to be proud; be proud of what you have done until now.” In that regard, I am proud, a great success, is built upon many smaller successes, so time and patience will tell.

I wonder sometimes, are reaching our goals real success, or is it the journey too?

Keeping the faith

The journey towards greatness can be a long and winding road, with  many ups and downs. One thing that is most important is the capacity to keep a positive attitude in the face of all of these challenges. I read, an interesting quote by Steve Jobs, this morning, essentially saying that every morning he looked in the mirror, and asked himself if today was the last day of his life; would he be doing something that he wanted to do?

As challenging as it is, I can sincerely say yes, that I am doing the things that I want to be doing. Having the opportunity to work on complex human challenges, is what I love to do. Having a sense that I am developing new human understandings, or at least having a commitment to working to defeat hatred, in our lifetimes, and that kind of thing, is enormously inspiring to me. There surely; are setbacks and a lack of understanding from others. Yet, that is the beauty of doing something new, by definition others do not see it yet. Thanks.

An amazing moment

Today, I have a wonderful feeling. I worked hard on something; thought is DOA, and then swoop, somehow, the current of life, picked me up and carried me through a certain finish line. I am proud; I had done the previous work, but for some reason, things had slipped back from the front of my mind, while dealing with the real world of life itself. This morning the inspiration came to me, and I actuated that energy necessary to carry me forward; and so it is.

Sometimes, it is those little challenges of life that provide us, with a sense of clarity and direction. So now, I have accomplished something on one front. Perhaps time for a mini-break, before proceeding on the next front. Life can be great, in spite of the pains and challenges. So now, let’s see how things go. Let go and let God, or let the universe pave the way, or whatever floats your boat. I am grateful for the US Open tennis as well. Four US women, and Del Potro versus Rafa, up next Wowsie.

Defeating Hatred

On some level, one of my greatest life ambitions, is to start the conversation about defeating hatred. The direction of our world, seems so snide at times; AND for the most part it is learned behavior. It most be a fear-based notion of people acting with all due respect like there is something much larger to fear. Such is our world. Where is that notion of FDR: “That there is nothing to fear but fear itself.” The capacity to develop win-win approaches for ourselves and others is so important in this day and age, and the popular mindset, is more a fearful notion of just taking care of our ourselves, no matter how mean and rude we are acting.

Somehow this negative cycle must be broken, and the work of creating positive, win-win elements must be fortified. That is really the essence of Calm Interventions work; helping people develop positive images, develop win-win approaches, and all kinds of things, aimed to bring out our best. I do not know everything, but I know a positive attitude is our greatest aim.

The man who broke hatred and/or breaking narcissism

That seems like it is one of my aims; to do something significant like breaking narcissism and/or hatred itself. That is what the Science of Inner Strength and my life is about. I am working to get to the core of human animus itself; discovering those reasons and happenstances, as to why people decide to hate and/or act in lesser capacities. A major situation I am working on, has to do with extreme narcissism, and seemingly hatred itself, as to why a person or persons will attack and hate on another person so relentlessly.

It gets to the emptiness inside, which is why the Science of Inner Strength, with respect to its finding the spiritual light within us is such an antidote to animus itself. Once people feel a sense of worth, purpose, even spiritual center within them; they then become much less likely to act in hurtful and distressful ways. We have a lot of hurt people these days, who for the most part do not know it.

With no aspersions, we must help people heal and learn goodness.

I have encountered evil

As I reflect I feel the great value of my story and my life is that I have actually encountered evil; and not only not been defeated by it, but bring forward an amazing message due to that encounter. I will say I saw a quote recently that “people are not evil; systems are.” So I will not necessarily lay that heavy rap on any one person. Things happen, and it has to do with people making faulty choices, perhaps small ones one after another; and then it can be the combined energy mixed with others that create an evil dynamic. I must say, I only using evil to describe the most “indescribable.”

The thing about evil, is that it can become very confusing for those innocents who run into it; because a certain iteration of evil entails it posing as good and reasonable. People must be very strong in order to resist evil. People can be gullible and persuaded by things. So it has taken me unbelievable preparation and divine inspiration to realize that I have encountered evil.

Onward!

I feel wonderful about that one…

Yes, today, I prepared and submitted an Assessment that seems a long time in coming. The Assessment seems a “remarkable” testament to resilience, AND perhaps gotten in, just in the nick of time. One never knows in this day and age. I was guided by higher influences it seems; so I am thankful that I could sustain so long, and in turtle like fashion edge out the rabbit by a nose. So for now, I believe I will breath a sigh or two of relief and great feeling and let it be for a tad. Sometimes it just the doing of something that brings you that great feeling. You cannot really control the outcome; and I have been dealing with seemingly super-human forces for a long time, with respect to how mightily they challenged me.

That is what the Science of Inner Strength is all about. It is having that inner resilience and commitment to overcoming all obstacles. It would be an Honor shall we say to work with you. Call the dedicated line and leave a confidential message. Thanks. 617-916-1858.

Having taken on evil and emerged the better

That may be the calling card of my life. It seems on some level, I was called to actually take on societal evil, AND look it square in the eye. There is nothing in the world like battling true evil; I do not know everything, but I know that that is true. Evil will attempt to fold, spindle and mutilate reason, logic and decency.

It is true that I emerged much the better for that twenty one year process, not only alive to tell the story, but with an agenda to help the world as well. There are very few people, who could really go through the process that I did. It is truly a special badge of honor to have battled on that core level, and be positioned to deliver something of societal good. I am grateful for that entire process, as truly challenging at it was.

While parts of society do not want to hear the “evil” word; I feel like it is my responsibility to say that it exists, to define it, and develop remedies. Thanks, Jon

Heroic, in the sense

That I have stood for the right thing, in the midst of an unfathomable storm, due to circumstances beyond my control; well for literally like “decades.” That is, I suppose, God’s way of testing us, to the depth of our beliefs. Today, I will once again declare victory. I mean, I stood so long and so hard for the positive things that I believe in, that it must be relatively clear that I would and will not give, so long as I have breath in me.

Maybe that was the nature of the test itself: To discover those beliefs AND hang on to them, irrespective of how wet, wild and rambunctious it got. Yesterday, in some ways was a metaphor, as I headed out in the midst of a blizzard towards a mailbox. Yes, I did get there. It reminds me of days, went I drove through tornado weather to get to my son, or walked in five hours of rain, and other extraordinary challenges to the elements. Today, I feel good about it; and if anyone ask, downright heroic!
