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
“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.”
