Leading Your Life As Seekers Of Consciousness Expansion

13

The events that transpire throughout the world tend to define society as a whole—large amounts of people create the group energy of the moment from their thought forms; we can get caught up in those situations that may hold us back from opportunities, as seekers of consciousness expansion.

What is popular drives information and goes viral in various mediums, whether that’s online or in the main stream media. Single events become controlling factors in people’s lives. It’s important to understand that each of us have the choice to traverse beyond what others decide is significant, and therefore fateful to us.

What is consciousness? Merriam-Webster, a company founded back in 1831 by George and Charles Merriam in Springfield, Massachusetts in the USA—that specializes in reference books and dictionaries—describes it as:

1
a :  the quality or state of being aware especially of something within oneself
b :  the state or fact of being conscious of an external object, state, or fact
c :  awareness; especially :  concern for some social or political cause. The organization aims to raise the political consciousness of teenagers.
2
:  the state of being characterized by sensation, emotion, volition, and thought :  mind
3
:  the totality of conscious states of an individual
4
:  the normal state of conscious life. regained consciousness
5
:  the upper level of mental life of which the person is aware as contrasted with unconscious processes

The definition touches on awareness and concern and mentions emotions and sensations. Consciousness can be derailed and therefore distracted so very easily, so when taking in information we have the choice to not board that train following the latest event, but to stand alongside it and not become attached.

If we’re not attached we’re not consumed; our energy is free to be harnessed for our respective goals that enhance expansion.

What is consciousness to me? What comes up are two primary windows looking in on the word: one is the angle of being conscious and aware of what is going on, but with free will and the ability to make choices; the second is what makes up who we are on multiple dimensions—I could say that true consciousness is the ability to connect back into our source.

Take a moment to consider what’s driving your life right now; is it what everyone else is doing and thinking, or is it what you choose to focus on and play out?

The group consciousness is not the only factor, as when we are physically present with people every day, whether that’s a relationship, family, or close friendships, their energy will influence us and cause us to do things we would not normally do if we were on our own and more energetically pure to who we are, and who we want to be. This is completely normal, but we have a choice to be our own leader and be the role model to those around us.

I finish off here with some quotes and a poem by William Ernest Henley, in relation to the above.

“You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.”
— Ken Kesey, an American novelist, essayist, and countercultural figure (1935–2001)

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
— John Quincy Adams, an American statesman who served as a diplomat, United States Senator, member of the House of Representatives, and was the sixth President of the United States (1767-1848)

“A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.”
— Max Lucado, a best-selling Christian author and writer and preacher at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas

Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeoning of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

— William Ernest Henley, an influential poet, critic and editor of the late-Victorian era in England (1849–1903)

I remember once at work I was asked to apply for a lead hand position on my crew. The meeting was with my supervisor and hr. I was asked how to motivate to get the job done. My response was "To lead by example" They were non too impressed. Needless to say I didn't get the job, TG.

PucksterguyMy response was "To lead by example" They were non too impressed. Needless to say I didn't get the job, TG.

What? Then how come I became a manager or a director with the approach you took? I was always inspired by leading by example, therefore I was telling my people often times: "follow me," then taking the lead, rather than: "go and do the best you can." The feedback I got directly or indirectly (from my own boss or human resources) was always so positive -not to mention the people from other departments wanting to work for me, saying that I was great at motivating because I always lead by example. Well Pucksterguy, in a way that is sad, your company didn't appreciate you or your approach and with such attitude perhaps they would have not treated you well had you been awarded the position -leading later to frustration, stress, etc., on your part. Their loss.
(Wondering now if whoever got the position was successful and/or the team considers him/her a good leader)

Many times, I think the "higher ups" are actually threatened by someone who has the potential to be an excellent leader…especially one who believes in the leading by example principle. That was my platform during an interview for a recent promotional opportunity–and I'm pretty sure that was one of the reasons I wasn't promoted. I suspect the guys already in place at that level (and the ones making the promotion decision) didn't want an enthusiastic, highly-motivated new manager showing them up or setting a much higher bar that they would eventually have to reach themselves. They were comfortable with the status quo and weren't about to inject anything that would require more work into the mix. 🙁

Oh, well. As Carl says, it's their loss. And now I'll just bow out as gracefully as I can and retire. As they say, living well is the best "revenge"! LOL…

You scared them didn't you, they saw something in you they didn't understand, but they somehow knew you would be popular and do a fantastic job and would show them up. How sad and pathetic, got to feel sorry for people like that:(

It doesn't work like that where I work Carl. It's more like SG says and cover your ass, backstab etc. I've gotten into trouble because of my integrity and not much liked by mgt. It's ok somebody has to shine a light in there. I know how to deal with them/it.

StargazerI suspect the guys already in place at that level (and the ones making the promotion decision) didn't want an enthusiastic, highly-motivated new manager showing them up or setting a much higher bar that they would eventually have to reach themselves. I encounter that situation early in my career Stargazer. I was a designer then and another designer (senior in the position already, and connected) told me to slow down my output because it was making the rest of the designers look bad. I just looked at him and ignored the guy but knew that they would try to do something about it, so behind the curtain I looked for another position and left for another company shortly after -the curious thing was that that move eventually took me towards the path that began to elevate me (obvious outcome if we apply our esoteric knowledge).

Jobs are one of the most difficult competitive environments that reflect well our society constructed through a hierarchical system with rigid rules. You guys are all very awesome and have a kind heart and spirit. I want to share with you some funny-awful experiences during interviews for jobs that I never got. I attended a humanistic university, it was like a lightworker university but without people having the awareness of a starseed world or handling concepts of metaphysics, but it was a very sweet environment, very beautiful students and teachers, so it was very devastating for me to leave that city. In contrast, there is another university that is the strongest competitor with a more typical business-oriented mindset for entrepreneurs and big companies. The city in itself is more industry oriented so the latter is preferred over the first one even if the humanistic one is nevertheless business oriented. After graduating, in two interviews, the young people who asked me questions basically told me very openly that it was very evident that I was a humanist and they did not like our mindset…so goodbye lol. In another one, during the test, I could not avoid asking myself "you must be… Read more »

KarlaSM"Are you afraid of God?"

Good one Karla! You just reminded me of the motto at my British High School: "The beginning of knowledge is the fear of God!" Now tell what a person of our nature thought about such motto.

I'm a mechanic working the shop floor assembling some very complicated machinery I over all enjoy what I do. I'm immune to mgt shenanigans I watch them come and go. My job never changes except gets more challenging then it needs to be. Fascinating world to visit but I wouldn't wanna live there.

I really know what it feels to be out of the world (I mean the 3D world) and in our own one. It is not being disconnected, but being who we are. I love this paper Laron. Thank you
This really brings comfort and self confidence yay !
