Playing with a Full Deck – Free downloadable book by Tom Vanderbeck, Final Part (7)

JokerFor those of you that enjoyed Parts 1 to 6 of Tom’s new book, here is the free download of The final part (7) of PLAYING the Game of Life WITH A FULL DECK
A Primer on Compassionate, Proactive Self Leadership and Personal Accountability … for conversations at the kitchen table

What have you enjoyed about Tom’s work? What do you agree (or disagree) with?

Have you talked this with friends or family?

Please let us know!

Here’s an extract I like, which offers a little more on Tom’s approach:

“Many of us have not been aware of two essential components of human consciousness, the Negative Automatic Program, or ‘NAP’, and Spiritual Amnesia. This doubly unfortunate lack of awareness severely limits our experiences of awakening our personal potentials. I call this way of being ‘Not Playing with a Full Deck’. The truth is we were all dealt a full deck of cards for playing the game of life. However, none of us were made aware of the Two Jokers, the NAP and Spiritual Amnesia. When we feel confused, frustrated, and unfulfilled; and conclude that we have not been ‘Playing With A Full Deck'; the problem has not been too few cards, but two too many.”

Part 7: SELF ACTUALIZATION

EXCERPT

“Forgiving someone else is simply a whopping big gift to my Self! I may choose to communicate with the person I forgive, or not. He or she may no longer be available to me, or even alive. The point of the exercise is to liberate my Self from the past so that I can focus on the present.

Master. I seek to understand the meaning of life. Can you give me any wise counsel?”

Certainly, my friend! First determine and declare the meaning of you. The meaning of life will in time become clear to you without any seeking or effort.

We are not just humans having an occasional spiritual experience; but rather, we are spiritual beings having amazing human experiences. The way forward, and the path toward celebrating our lives, is through persistent, compassionate, and accountable self leadership and humanistic service to others.”

Part 6: RECOVERY from SPIRITUAL AMNESIA

EXCERPT

‘It is easy to cling to ideas, beliefs, plans, material possessions, and notions of “being right.” Suffering is caused by attachment. Clinging. Holding on. Judging. Getting stuck on a point of view, or an illusion. Extreme attachment is called addiction.

I am accountable for how I experience my life. Whether or not I am aware of it, I am accountable for whether I choose to act consciously and response-ably, or to abdicate my life to the control of my NAP. How I play the game of life is up to me. Denying my personal accountability does not change the truth; even if I use elaborate and persuasive reasons, excuses, and rationalizations.’

Part 5: RESPONSE-ABILITY

Excerpt: “Donna approached me after class and asked, “Will you be my mentor?” She wanted for us to meet at least once a week for a few hours of counseling and coaching, have me give her assignments for reading and journaling, and be available just about any time for a phone call.

I knew she was sincere and committed. I had been blessed with a few mentors when I most needed them, and I had served as a mentor several times. I was happy to accept her invitation.

“What will it cost?” she asked.

Part 4: TRANSCENDING the NAP

Excerpt

“If you find a dent in the side of your car, you may experience some stress. “That dent shouldn’t be there!” Sometimes we just don’t notice the dents in our lives, although it is so easy to see all the dents in someone else’s car, and even the really tiny imperfections in someone else’s life.

Fine. So there ARE some dents in your life. Only you can be proactive and accountable for fixing them. “Trying” is simply a euphemism we abuse for abdicating accountability, and excusing ourselves when we did not really intend to fulfill what we promised to ourselves or others to do in the first place.
