Default Spiritual Partnership: The Journey to Authentic Power

Spiritual Partnership: The Journey to Authentic Power by Gary Zukav

Edit: For anyone whom might be interested in a bit more information, or not into reading books, heres a link to Gary's website on the Seat of the Soul Institute, regarding Spritual Partnership and Authentic Power:

http://seatofthesoul.com/free-tools/...er-vocabulary/

Change!
The biggest change possible or imaginable –
Change bigger than the discovery of fire,
Bigger than the invention of the wheel,
Bigger than the origin of cultures,
The birth of religions,
The rise of nation-states,
And the impacts of science.
It is bigger than anything that has come before
And so big that it is not possible to envision
What could come after or when.

Possibilities!
Experiences, insights, motivations, and creations
Beyond our ability to imagine only a few years ago now call to us,
Beckoning us to new destinations
And yet more new possibilities.
All is new and fresh,
Like a blank page awaiting words,
A canvas inviting the first brushstroke.
In the past others have glimpsed,
And sometimes explored,
These new possibilities,
But now everyone is beginning to see or sense them.
We have crossed a threshold and there is no turning back.
There is no way to turn back.

Power!
The old kind of power – the ability to manipulate and control –
Now produces only violence and destruction.
This is real surprise, because the old power enabled us
And our ancestors to survive.
Like good medicine suddenly turned bad, it is now poison.
We used to take it to stay alive.
Now we need to avoid it to stay healthy.
A new kind of power – authentic power – has become the new good medicine,
And we need it to become healthy, nurturing, and whole.

Change, Possibilities, and Power
That we could not have imagined our reshaping the entire human experience.
New values, goals, and intentions are everywhere appearing like grass in the spring.
And wherever it grows, beauty appears.
With it come fields of flowers and vast forests.
A new and surprising world is emerging in new and surprising ways.
We are all students in a new school, explorers in new territory,
And pioneers in a new human experience.

This unprecedented transformation in human experience has two parts.
One is happening automatically, so to speak.
No one needs to do anything to make it happen.
It is occurring in millions of individuals, and soon will occur in all humans.
The second is a different story. It requires choice.
Specifically, you must choose to make it happen or it will not happen in you.
Even if others choose to make the second process happen in themselves,
They cannot make it happen in anyone else.

The first process is the expansion of human perception
Beyond what we can see, hear, taste, touch, and smell.
It is seeing for yourself that the world is larger than you thought – much larger – And also different than you could have imagined.
Before this process, your perceptions of the world are confined
To what your five senses tell you about it.
Afterwards, your five senses continue to tell you about the world,
And, in addition, you experience more.
The ‘more’ is sometimes difficult to describe,
It allows you to know things about others that your five senses cannot tell you,
It involves intuition in a big way.
It allows you to experience yourself as more than your mind and body.
It reveals your life as purposeful and calls you to your purpose,
It allows you to encounter meaning in unexpected ways,
It allows you to see from an impersonal perspective.
From that perspective, all of your experiences – even the most painful –
Serve your spiritual development and the spiritual development of those around you.
They provide exactly what you need to develop the strength, compassion,
And wisdom to give the gifts that you were born to give.
It is an expanded awareness that allows you to experience non-physical reality in many ways.
It is a process of multisensory perception.

The second process is bringing the new potential that comes with the first, into your life.
Multisensory perception changes your perception, but it does not change you.
It shows you things that you could not see before,
But it does not make you use your new knowledge.
It illuminates the dynamics that you could not see –
Dynamics that you can apply to change your life and world permanently for the better –
But it does not require you to apply them.
It reveals your creative power, but it does not make you create wisely.
On the contrary, you will continue to create as you have in the past until you choose otherwise.
If you are angry, for example, the first process of multisensory perception, will not make you less angry.
It will also not create different consequences for you than acting with anger has created in the past.

The second process is experiencing and changing in yourself
the interior sources of your painful emotions (such as anger, jealousy, vengefulness, and so on),
obsessive thoughts (such as judging yourself or others, longing for someone or something
to change your life, and son on),
compulsive activities (such as workaholic, perfectionism, and so on),
and addictive behaviours (such as overeating, smoking, drinking alcohol, using drugs, watching pornography, gambling, and so on).
It is also experiencing and cultivating in yourself the interior sources of your pleasing emotions
(such as gratitude, contentment, appreciation, and awe of Life).
In short, the second process is creating the fulfilling and joyful life that is calling to you.
It takes work, but choosing to engage in the second process can produce
Almost instantaneous results in your life.
In other words, choosing can fundamentally change your life in a very short time.
This does not mean that you become a radically different person, its not that simple or easy.
However, each change that you make in yourself, and you engage in the process of choosing,
Is fundamentally transformative, no matter how small it may appear.
It is incremental (like putting pennies in a jar), it happens choice by choice,
And each choice that you make moves you in a new direction toward a new and healthy goal –
A personality whose experiences are so dramatically different for the better,
That you cannot always foresee what they will be.
The second process requires you to choose words and deeds, moment by moment,
That will create joyful and constructive consequences
Even when painful or violent emotions roar through you.
Its about changing your life with strength of your own will, guided by your own awareness,
With intentions that you consciously choose,
Assisted by the compassion and wisdom of the Universe experienced
In personal and meaningful ways.
This transformation is more than change toward a better or more healthy life.
It is transformation toward the highest, most noble, healthy, and ground part of you.
That is your soul!

In other words, it is about finding and changing all parts of your personality
That do not intend what your soul intends,
And finding and cultivating all the parts of your personality that do intend what your soul intends.
Your soul intends harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for Life.
Each time you create with one of these intentions, you create authentic power –
A life of meaning, fulfillment, gratitude, vitality, creativity, and joy
It awaits your commitment, courage, compassion, and conscious communications and actions
To bring it into your life, wonderous gifts from the Universe!

This dramatic difference requires dramatically different relationships.
The new type of relationships for multisensory individuals is spiritual partnership.
A spiritual partnership is a partnership between equals for the purpose of spiritual growth.
It attracts and connects multisensory humans who are creating authentic power
As much as old-type relationships attracted five-sensory humans whom were pursing external power.
The purpose, nature, and function of spiritual partnerships are different.
The dynamics of spiritual partnerships and the experiences that spiritual partners cocreate are different.
Creating authentic power requires relationships of substance and depth.
You cannot grow spiritually until you have the courage to enter into meaningful and significant relationships.
In other words, spiritual partnerships are a necessary part of the second process.
Every encounter provides you an opportunity to create authentic power,
But when your encounters include others who are also using their experiences
To create authentic power,
The potential for a spiritual partnership comes into being.
Potential spiritual partners recognize the commitment, courage, compassion,
And conscious communications and actions of one another.
They naturally strive to support one another in creating authentic power
And to receive the support of one another.
They journey toward the same goal, recognize fellow travellers, and learn from one another.
Evolution now requires you to create a fulfilling and joyful life –
To give the gifts that you were born to give –
And spiritual partnerships bring you into cocreating with others who are doing the same.
Creating authentic power is a process, not an event.
It is the purpose of your life and the opportunity of your interactions.
Authentic power is a journey, not a destination.
It is a journey that few have taken before and that all of us are now required to complete
As humanity transits from a five-sensory species that evolved by surviving
Into a multisensory species that evolves by growing spiritually.
This book is a road map to creating authentic power.
To refer to at any point along the way.
To read to prepare for what lies ahead,
And review to understand what lies behind.
Practice it to live joyfully wherever you are at this moment on the journey.
I am grateful to be on the journey with you!

You and "your" texts have a way of making me very angry, and I knew it beforehand, but I had to read it anyways. When I feel like being angry, then might as well be properly angry and none of that middle of the road nonsense, because that's really confusing.

Just simply stating that you are angry, IS confusing, without explaining Why?

And you are welcome to express 'anger' at the text, but it is very inappropriate to digress to making it personal, by being angry at 'me'. I'm not the source of your anger, that lies soley inside of you, but any of us are allowed to 'feel' and react as we wish to information.

Well, I for one enjoy reading these beautiful and meaningful passages you share with us, Mika. Irayo, ma tsmuke! I think they very much reflect the spirit of the Na'vi.

I understand it's fluffy, and that can bother some people, but that's really what this board is for. That said, I know what you mean.

Ma Mika,
There are a few things in what you posted that I don't ascribe to, BUT, most of it, I have no problem with. Even the parts that make me a bit uncomfortable, I would never hold against you, they are what you believe, and you can not be faulted for what you believe, that is what makes you unique from all others, and it should be CHERISHED.

How could I explain how messed up I am?

You are correct that you are not the source of my anger, but a reminder of the things that imbue me with anger, and when I'm too tired to run away, I embrace that hate and bitterness until words like yours turn putrid in my mouth and I want to throw up.

Ah .. ok .. Aquaplant, i think i now 'see' what you were/are saying! I get that reaction too, sometimes, to those things that are meant to be affirming, but seem to generate the opposite emotional response!

(i've added a link above to the original post regarding spiritual partnership/authentic power)

I think at this point it would be best for me to close my ears and eyes shut and crawl into a tiny hole and hide there until this danger has passed, but I'm afraid that even if it does, it will only be temporary.

Learn to accept your emotions...
It'll be good for you...

And yes, it has been good, but the bad part of it is going to get me killed one of these days...

I believe I understood what I first responded to, though this last sentence kind of threw me. Care to explain?

Default On a more personal level

In Spiritual Partnership, Courage is defined as ‘stretching oneself beyond the limited perspectives of the frightened parts of our personalities.’ The premise is that spiritual growth requires the courage to use your will to heal your own fears instead of trying to change everyone else. It is the courage to keep the commitment to yourself to experience and heal all the frightened parts of your personality instead of indulging them or running from them. Whether or not the frightened parts of our personality heal depends entirely on our intention.

It requires taking responsibility for my feelings, experiences, and actions, without blaming others or circumstances. This is the central theme of authentic power. Everything revolves around it. When it comes to taking responsibility for what I experience, either I do or don not. There is no in-between. The chasm between taking responsibility for my experiences and not taking responsibility for them is the ‘gap’ between five-sensory evolution and multi-sensory evolution. Five-sensory individuals cannot bridge this gap because they see external circumstances as the causes of their emotions. Multi-sensory humans know better.

Creating authentic power means becoming the authority in my own life. Who else knows more about me, feels what I feel, experiences what I experience, and cares about my aspirations more than me? Becoming my own authority means listening to the ‘counsel’ of others but not necessarily accepting it. If I hear something that ‘resonates’ with me, who else except me can say ‘That is worth remembering’ or ‘That is not worth remembering’? When I have dreams that puzzles, frightens, or enlightens me, who except me can decide to ponder or forget it?

Taking responsibility for my experiences means reminding myself, whatever is happening, “This is happening for a reason. I may not be able to see the reason now. My intention is to learn all I can about myself. How can this experience help me heal the fear-based parts of my personality?” Taking responsibility is a fundamental challenge, because previously none of those parts felt responsibility for what they do. The angry parts are convinced that their anger is cause by others and justified. The jealous parts are convinced that their jealousy is caused by others and justified. The overwhelmed parts are convinced that their overwhelm is caused by circumstances and justified, and so on.

When I take responsibility for all of my experiences, I put myself in the powerful position of being able to discover which of my choices created which of my experiences and therefore capable of re-creating them – or not! Instead of assuming that others or circumstances create my experiences (what is known as a ‘victim’ mentality), by assuming that my choices create them I become a ‘creator’ of my world.

Some parts of my personality are so familiar that they seem to ‘who I am’ and idea of changing them appears impossible because that would require changing my very essence, which becomes an even more frightening thought. But it’s not an accurate thought. My essence surprises me and fills me with joy and wonder without the distorted perceptions of those frightened parts. My essence helps me find and heal all those parts.

The key component in healing those frightened parts is ‘compassion’, the loving part of my personality. It changes my experiences of myself and my experiences of others at the same time. The less I judge myself, the less I judge others. The more I appreciate myself, the more I appreciate others. When I love myself, I love others. Compassion for myself and compassion for others are two sides of the same coin. One side it the my interactions with my frightened and loving parts of my personality, the other side is my interactions with frightened and loving parts of other personalities.

The loving parts of my personality are compassionate, and the frightened parts are not. If I do not choose between them, a frightened part of my personality will choose for me. Choosing to act with the intention of a loving part of my personality, even while I am feeling the painful sensations of a frightened part of my personality, by observing its judgemental thoughts, and seeing its destructive intention, creates authentic power. It also creates compassionate words and deeds. In other words, compassionate words and actions require conscious choices. Shouting when I’m angry is an unconscious choice. So is smoking when I crave a cigarette, drinking when you ‘need’ a drink, and gambling when you feel the impulse. Compassionate words and actions are not obsessive, compulsive, or addictive. They are appropriate.

I cannot be compassionate with one person and not be compassionate with all people, any more that I can be compassionate with all people and not be compassionate with myself. Compassion has not exclusions (including myself) or exceptions (including myself). It opens, unlocks and removes barriers. It is care without fear, without agendas, attachments or expectations. Compassion cannot be wished, affirmed, visualized, or prayed into being any more that a farmer can wish, affirm, visualize, or pray a crop into being. He must choose the crop he wants to harvest, but that is not enough, he must prepare the ground, plant the seeds, water and feed them, and pull the weeds. If you want to harvest compassion, you must create authentic power.

(mika’s note: ok in context of what the author is presenting here, I understand the point he is making, one must set the intention and must follow through with concrete action, not just wistful thinking. BUT there is also a whole science regarding attracting the elements you need to fulfill your intention, that do indicate that such actions as affirmations and visualization, can play a powerful role, such as Cancer patients whom while on one hand acknowledging their powerlessness in the face of their disease, and seek professional medical treatment can induce beneficial healing or minimization of side-effects, or even full out remission or cure, by including such powerful processes of affirmations and visualization, and that have been proven to work).

At some point in the creation of authentic power my endeavours became real to me. I realized that my emotional awareness and responsible choices are affecting the very substance of my life – my ability to live outside of the control of the frightened parts of my personality and create a life of love. This could only happen when I realized that allowing those frightened parts of my personality do as they choose was more painful than challenging them. The courage that challenging them required began to be replaced with the gratification of challenging them and choosing consciously rather than reacting unconsciously. I no longer need to change in order to please others, be accepted, or make myself feel valuable and safe. I changed because I wanted to change, because I no longer wanted to be controlled by my fears, and because I was tired of being in pain and dealing with the consequences of living life from that pain.

I’m beginning to see the freedom that I am creating within myself, and as the author points out it becomes natural to want to share with others how to create that freedom – how they can use their experiences, including their painful ones, to become masters of their own lives. I can see now the fruits of my efforts, and realize that no one could have given them to me, no one else can give me meaning and purpose, fulfillment and joy. But sharing is not the same as trying to fix, impress, convert, or caretake others. That disappears as is replaced with humbleness, clarity, forgiveness and love that reflects the deeper aspects of my soul. I create each moment with an empowered heart without attachment to the outcome.

Compassion continues to flow through all aspects of my being, becoming my source of inspiration that endures and guides me without fail through difficult experiences and transforms them into some of the most rewarding.

(paraphrased from Spiritual Partnership – by Gary Zukav)

well I can definitely resonate with the Choice part, the Multisensory part - and the Responsibility part is so good that, with kind Mika's permission, I'll quote it to some of my prison penpals (that's one of my charities) - to those who Choose to change their lives. Hope that's all right with you Mika?

That sounds like a wonderful thing that you are doing!

As long as you reference the book and author, as that's where the information is coming from, and most of it is the authors words, i just referenced it in a more personal fashion, because I can relate to it, but really its his words and insights!

you know what I learn quite a bit from this correspondence! Like, respecting the limits & personal space - yours & those of the other; being able to carry on with Very little; recognizing that it is not often the situation but one's own attitude that matters; cherishing every little thing you have - even a song on the radio, a cup of coffee or a half-used pen is a treasure cos one has sooo little... Get thrown off a direhorse, fall in the mud, then get up & start "again". It's a very curious experience live & learn, eh.

great idea: if i give this info they might find this book in the library, or order it, & get the lot out of it! I say, some of them are philosophers
