Are you unemployed? Today we find many people unemployed, people who have never been unemployed before and didn’t believe this could happen to them. There are also people who own their own businesses and find that the demand for their products or services have simply gone away. The first question asked is “why”. The quick easy answer is the economy, which is true, but why is our economy crashing? There are lots of people we can blame, but the truth is that it is the natural consequence of the choices we, collectively, have made in the past.
What we usually want most is to get back to “normal”, but what is “normal”? For most people the desire is to get back to a place where they felt comfortable and secure. However, there is no going back. There is only going forward. The question, we need to be asking, is what could this all mean and where could it lead us?
Could it be possible that this is a great blessing in disguise?
I am now reading a book entitled Quantum Shift in the Global Brain by Ervin Laszlo. In this book he tells us that the world is now in the midst of macro shift in the evolution of world consciousness. He explains this evolutionary process in terms of major shifts in the past. He explains that there are phases to evolutionary shifts and that when social complexity, coupled with a degenerating environment creates unmanageable stresses, something has to give. We are headed for either a breakdown or a breakthrough.
I believe we are headed for a huge breakthrough in human consciousness, and that is what Unlimited Futures is all about. We provide a process that when practiced on a daily basis leads one to a much more advanced level of understanding, functioning and experience.
Our actions are a result of our beliefs, and we simply have not been capable of seeing the natural consequence of our actions in the past. Now, however, we are becoming aware that what we have believed in the past has been incorrect and will not work to create the kind of future we want for ourselves. I believe that many people are now realizing that there must be a better way.
There is an easier, more efficient, more effective and more enjoyable way to create the futures we want for ourselves. However, in order to be able to do that we must be willing to develop the potential that we all have deep within ourselves that lies dormant until we discover how to activate it. This is what the shift in human consciousness is all about. We will be awakening to a world far better than anything we have even dreamed of before.
What if your unemployment is just giving you the time and motivation to take a deeper look at yourself, and discover that you have a purpose in life, that there is a reason and purpose for your being here on earth now? And that you have the power right within yourself to create the kind of life you want for yourself.
Socrates tells us that the ‘unexamined life is not worth living’. Are you ready to take the time and make the commitment to discover ‘yourself’? Have you been blessed with this opportunity to make a different choice and create a very different world for yourself?
Each of us has a reason and purpose for being here. We each have something to do to make the world a better place. Our purpose doesn’t have to be spectacular, but when we are aware of our purpose we have more energy to do that, and we are capable of doing it very well. The exciting thing is that there is someone who wants to do everything that needs to be done. What do you want to do? I mean really want to do, not just something that will give you the income to pay your bills. If you had a magic wand and knew you could create the ideal job for yourself, what would you be doing? Write it down in as much detail as you can imagine.
Next week I will give you some guidelines on how the creative process works, and how you can work with this process to start creating a job for yourself.
I have described this process in detail and provided diagrams and step-by-step guidelines in my book on Personal Growth. I have also created a CD, DVD, and a Companion Workbook to help you get started. We also now have our Personal Growth and Development Core Course on DVDs to help you. If you have not already done so, be sure to download a free introductory session of our Core Course before leaving the site.
Once you start experiencing this growth process, we also provide courses that you can attend to accelerate this natural evolutionary process.
