Here’s what you won’t hear at your commencement.

 

cere_011218_spotlight_cont-1

Commencement speeches all are well-intentioned bits and bites of wisdom from supremely accomplished people who sincerely wish to contribute. They often offer a glimpse of a path towards apparent success.

Our definitions of success may require scrutiny, though. Too many are exhausted, addicted, drugged, and unhappy. Many, after acquiring much wealth, ask, “Is that all there is?”

They remain “unfree.” Imprisoned. In a cave, looking for a way out. They were told that fame and fortune would deliver a happy life. They weren’t taught that material stuff only delivers – at best – temporary happiness.

So no, far more exists. But few are taught this reality.

By all means take that hard earned degree and enjoy it.

But something else you may not yet know will make all the difference: in your life, in others’. Everywhere.

YOUR REAL VOCATION

Your true vocation is to know yourself. Ancient wisdom proves that is your only end and purpose.

Know thyself.

To thine own Self be true.

As within, so without.

That knowledge, if it has not already begun, must begin now, if you wish to be all of you.

To know what it means to be fully human.

To know the Self.

Humans consist of two aspects: consciousness and matter. Using a source proved to enlight, you’ll know how to harness both. This isn’t touchy-feely, nor mystic woo-woo. It’s the science of consciousness that awakened many millions committed to know themselves for many thousands of years.

The result? A life well lived.

Contentment.

Full of meaning.

Fulfillment.

Well being.

Health.

Peace of mind.

Living values that are conscious, contribute and constructive.

Walk the talk and be the change.

So know your limitless, magnificent, whole, complete, sublime – and ordinary – self.

With that knowledge firmly known, see what arises from that as your contribution to yourself, your family – humanity.

It will be more fully formed than if you only act from your most excellent degree
(itself an enormous accomplishment).

But acting only on your degree risks that you chase money, power, fame and other unconscious aspects we all have, which tends to lead to unhappiness.

Know thyself.

For God’s sake.

For your sake.

You’ll love what you realize.

And you’ll be free of the cave.

INTRODUCING THE WORLD’S LONGEST SERVING, MOST DANGEROUS TERRORIST: YOU

images-8

Yup.

It’s you. Me. Us. All of us.

We’re given a great start.

We’re built whole, limitless, complete, sublime, magnificent – and ordinary. In the diagram above, that’s the part of us that’s above the waterline.

But we’re conditioned early on and learn otherwise. For many, a mild dis-ease arises, with a sense of a lack of self-worth. That’s the part below the waterline in the diagram.

See the difference?

Those with that affliction then need to prove they’re a somebody, or collapse under the weight of mistaken identity.

People, families, businesses, institutions, governments, societies and planets suffer as a result.

The symptoms include physical and mental illness, but also greed, domination, submission, addiction, cruelty, impaired listening, control, arrogance, violence and much more.

BEST WAY DISARM THE TERRORIST: SELF-KNOWLEDGE

You can disarm the terrorist by being who you really are, versus the conditioning that obscures the reality of you.

This requires learning. The learning is called “Self-knowledge.”

Choose a proven means of Self-knowledge; in other words, a source proven to enlighten – to ensure the knowledge of Self – the ultimate reality – is firm.

When firm, you’re free. Free of the incessant churn of anxieties, fears, desires and all other disturbances of the mind.

It’s a steep learning curve because years of programming-conditioning-have buried the real you miles deep. (Remember the below the surface chunk of ice?)

Disarm through a commitment to know what it means to be fully human.

To be the change.

To know thyself.

REVELATIONS TO ACTUALIZATIONS

Reveal your Light that’s under the bushel.

It will contribute immensely – personally and professionally.

Realize the whole, limitless, complete, sublime, magnificent – and ordinary – Self.

Freedom.

That’s reality.

You’ll like what we see.

Peace.

Next steps?

What world do you wish to contribute to today?

In other words, independent of what is apparently going on in the world, how do you choose to show up?

React or respond?

Give or take?

Contribute or withdraw?

Committed to vision or collapse in fear and inertia?

It is within you to respond and contribute. That’s the “high road.”

You’re only leverage in a world of whitewater is to learn and know what it means to be fully human – and embody that. (Almost all of us use of fraction our ourselves).

Discover what’s within: whole, limitless, sublime, complete, magnificent – and ordinary.

Once known, you’ll be able to navigate whatever the world – and others – throw your way.

And that promotes world peace.

That’s leadership.

MLK AND THE WRITING CONTEST

unnamedA 12-year-old, white Canadian boy is inspired to write about Martin Luther King.

He wins two dollars too.

Perhaps it’s odd just how much this white, Canadian,12-year-old boy was profoundly moved by Dr. Martin Luther King.

Or not so odd, given his home life.

Dr. King was barely mentioned in this all white, rustic, start-up, private school in downtown Toronto.

My admiration of him was ignited by Walter Cronkite’s must watch, supper hour news broadcasts that often led with coverage black riots, white resistance and freedom movements.

My fascination increased exponentially when these young ears, yearning for peace himself, heard the “I have a dream” speech.

I was enthralled then, and remain so to this day.

Dr. King’s assassination coincided with a writing contest at my school.

I overcame persistent shyness and a chronic lack of confidence to enter: my own wobbly steps toward freedom from limitations, external and internal.

My story was inspired by the school and the shifting neighbourhood it was in.  It was slowly transforming from decay and poverty to gentrification. For some time, co-existence of the new and old was uneasy, even often violent. No riots to be sure, but often tense, though most remained ignorant of their climate, thankfully.

Until one day…

At assembly one Monday, we were told some kids from my school lost their blazers after a fight with neighbourhood black kids. The whites taunted the blacks. The neighbourhood won, and payback included some black children wearing the school’s blazers as the fight’s prize.

A CHILD’S EPIPHANY

It was an epiphany, one of many I had in my early years.

Something within me was angry at the assault, the arrogance, the injustice, the disrespect of one to another. The “have mores” taunting the “have less” pissed me off.

This incident served as a foundation for my writing entry.

Perhaps it was one way I could have some control over my inability to manage the near constant rage and violence at home. The battles were endless. We were poor. Mine was a have less family, despite the chance opportunity to attend this school.

WINNING (SORT OF)

I won the writing contest. The editor of the student newspaper sponsoring the contest, Terry Collins, who years later became one of Canada’s top cartoonists and journalists, and a successful, senior, United Nations diplomat involved in climate change, gave me my $2.00 prize money.

(Terry actually forgot about the contest until I reminded him weeks after the deadline for submissions. I should have guessed then about its popularity).

I asked Terry how many entered the contest.

“You were the only one,” he said.

The halo effect of fame and glory was short lived, perhaps a few seconds, but the $2.00 afforded a chocolate sundae, my chosen addiction of the times.

It seems that was my first impulse to put a stake in the ground to advocate on behalf of our collective magnificence, to do unto others as you would have others do unto you, to do no injury.

And, as Bono wrote, “Love is bigger than anything in its way.”

To this day I continue to learn how to embody all that myself.

School for self-awareness of these universal principles- these realities-I know, is never out.

So, thank you, Dr. King.

Your light illumines me still.

Note: Please accept my apologies for the grammar and awkward, dated writing. I guess I invented the improper term “racialism” ignorant of the proper noun.

However, the lack of paragraphing was a yearbook editor’s choice, not mine, and if I knew who he was I would complain loudly!

ONE (OF MANY) EXISTENTIAL CRISES

images-33

“I want to be a somebody,” scream your unconscious patterns that diminish, limit and – eventually – extinguish life.

But you already are a somebody – whole, complete, limitless, sublime and ordinary!” – knows those who know themselves absolutely.

Those knowers know that Self-knowledge liberates them from unconscious imprisonment. They relate to the world secure and clear on how the world works.

They know that learning the rules of the world(s) helps ensure a life of meaning, fulfillment, prosperity, well being, health, contribution, peace of mind – and much more.

Self-knowledge is your “get out of existential crisis card.”

It leads to a life well lived, above all.

(PS: The same arises within organizations and all cultures, too, because they’re comprised of humans).

INTRODUCING THE WHISTLEBLOWER CULTURE. AND IT LIKELY EXISTS IN YOUR ORGANIZATION NOW.

ImageHandlerAs governments, institutions and business organizations learn to walk the talk and embody espoused values, a group inside each is intent on accelerating the learning.

They’re the whistleblowers. People who publicly call into questions norms, practices and actions the organization leaves unchecked. Not scrutinized.

No longer are the Cabinet, Board, managers, employees, customers, media and civil society willing to give a free pass to unconscious patterns expressed as corruption, greed, abuse, violence, ignorance, theft and more.

Welcome to the era of the whistleblower culture.

It will pay to walk the talk, and learn to embody conscious, constructive and contributive values.

Be assured, the whistleblower culture exists in most organizations already. I interview them regularly. They are among the reason organizational culture underperform and account for inertia. Imperilling results and relationships.

Whistleblowers are gaining courage, traction and momentum.

Ultimately that’s a good thing for people, planet and profits. But it’s a steep learning curve also.

Ready?
