How Important is “Context” to Becoming Who You Want To Be?
The best description of context I have, I received from Robert Kiyosaki back in the early 1990’s.
He drew a bowl of fruit on the white board … and proceeded to tell us that the bowl is the “context”, and the ‘shape of the bowl’ determines the position and behavior of the fruit inside the bowl.
Change the shape of the bowl (the context) and you change the position and shape of what’s inside.
Sounds straight forward, yes?
Watch this 3 minute video with Werner Erhard, the person considered to have introduced the concept of ’empowerment’ into business rather than ‘management’, as he discusses the importance of ‘context’ … and interestingly it also has an element of empowerment in it too.
Now, at Your Healthy Planet.com we have changed the context from one of scarcity, to one of abundance which is what actually exists in our Universe, but I think you would agree there are some interests around the world who would rather you stay believing that there isn’t enough to go ’round.
Not only is scarcity not the truth any more, it makes people frightened, and afraid to act. It is pervasive throughout the media, throughout politics and business.
I was in a store just three days ago, a new store in town, and I overheard one of the store owners complaining about the economy … and also about how “the Chinese are buying up everything here in Australia.” I was looking for a presentation folder and interestingly everything I saw for sale in the store was ‘made in China’.
So is the scarcity context of these store owners (and almost everyone else) creating more scarcity?
I’m not saying it’s easy to ‘step into a new reality’ … so how can we do it?
One quote that comes to mind from Buckminster Fuller is “Faith is better than belief. With belief, someone else is doing the thinking.”
I have faith that the ‘Great Spirit’ or ‘God’ or whoever you trust in is so present, and has designed this amazing Universe to deliver everything that I desire as long as I maintain that faith. As soon as doubt enters into my thoughts or feelings the possibility has vanished.
I am currently listening to some of Abrahams teachings and find they align with the context of abundance and the truth as I know it. Their teachings deal with various contexts including health and wellbeing, finance (apparently the biggest concern on our planet), relationships and more.
In Your Healthy Planet.com’s members area we are designing services that help introduce the context of abundance into your life and those around you. This is a work in progress and there is an open invitation to participate in helping create a future that is abundant, and one that works for everyone.
