Forecasting The Future – Part Two

To boil this down to the essential ingredients for success, the intentions of all concerned with the final result will determine what happens. If everyone involved is intending the same thing, that is what will happen. 

In a complex situation with many people involved, any counter-intention can have disastrous results. Inattention, carelessness, and lack of understanding can result in a disaster even though many people worked very hard to achieve a result.

On projects of a personal nature, pay close attention to any lack of cooperation or enthusiasm, and handle them immediately if you wish to achieve your goals. This applies to your personal feelings as well as the feelings of others. All intentions need to be aligned if you are to achieve the future you envision.

Al Leggett put it much more concisely: 

This is very coherent and a logical progression. Being able to envision the undertaking and/or final result comes next and can be helpful in getting agreement for the intention. Ultimately, a fused vision containing a high degree of agreement will create the greatest probability of success! 

In any event, the final result will be the product of all intentions for the activity. So if you are looking for the reason the activity or project went astray, look for the intention that the project would fail.

It is probably best if you locate and handle any counter-intention before you launch.

A reliable way to increase the chances of failure is to ignore all negative comments as the uninformed ranting of naysayers. You can vastly improve the chances of success by doing the laborious task of running down and dealing with every reason for the project to fail.

Engineers are professionally inclined to expect failure from unanticipated sources, as are experienced entrepreneurs. In both cases, their plans include consideration of the many reasons a project could fail, including things that are unknown as yet.

Politicians, on the other hand, tend to look on the bright side of things and fixate on good outcomes and not on the unthinkable outcomes that come from a maddened population. Marie Antionette certainly did not consider that her attitude toward the suffering of peasants would doom her and follow her down through history with the fictitious quote of, “Let them eat cake!”.

In other words, to forecast a possible future for yourself or your project, first assemble all of the benefits to be obtained from the project, and all of the reasons the project could succeed if all went well. If the facts you have gathered warrant proceeding with the project, then you should gather every possible reason the project could fail or be a bad idea and work out a solid solution for each of these reasons for failure.

If this seems like too much work, don’t do it as you are already setting yourself up for failure.

If you have solutions for every possible barrier to success, feel free to proceed cautiously and keep an eye out for the appearance of unexpected factors that could mean failure. One of the ways to anticipate unexpected modes of failure is to plan for a way to abort the project with as little damage as possible. If you cannot do that, you might end up with a Challenger disaster. Engineers knew of serious design problems that were not being addressed, and there was no way to rescue the astronauts if anything went wrong. Everything had to work correctly, or the mission was doomed. And, that is what happened.

We always need to look at counter-intention to a project as a valid objection to proceeding with the project, not as an evil move by bad people. You can think of counter-intention as friction or as an obstacle. If you classify counter-intention as politically motivated intentions to harm, you have lost all objectivity and will not be able to assess the value of the information correctly. When management views voices of caution as enemy propaganda, the stage is set for a major loss and summary firings of those who participated in forging ahead with the project.

When you look carefully at counter-intention, you need to distinguish what it is based on. Is the objection based on the lack of approval by august bodies of experts or the lack of advanced degrees in the development group? Or is it based on the performance of similar models in the past?

Doctors fought tooth and nail to discredit Ignaz Philipp Semmelweis, who was an early pioneer of antiseptic procedures. Doctors knew that it was not necessary to wash their hands between examining corpses and living patients. Everybody knows you need a college degree to become successful in business, but Bill Gates left Harvard after spending two years there to start Microsoft.

On the other hand, paying attention to the failures of earlier versions of what you are creating can pay huge dividends if you are willing to learn from their failures. When you look at why they failed or were not economically feasible, you will often find that the environment has changed enough that formerly unprofitable ventures are now economically feasible. Early automobiles were only useful to people who could travel with a mechanic and replace tires on the road. A modern car would not function on dirt roads with potholes and a distinct lack of charging stations. It is the interaction of good roads, service stations, wireless emergency communication, and satellite guidance systems for travelers that make modern road travel so convenient that your aged grandmother can do it.

The bottom line is that you can create a future event successfully if you can determine:

–what needs does it provide solutions for?

–Can it be done with the resources available?

–Will it provide an adequate return on the investment of time and energy?

–Can we provide solutions to every objection that has been raised to doing this event?

–Can we shut down the project safely if some major problem is discovered?

If you have been able to get this far, your project should be an unqualified success! Everyone you have recruited to help you should take credit in the accomplishment.

Forecasting The Future

Events happen because someone intends for them to happen. An intention is a spiritual universe phenomenon that cannot be measured by science as it falls beyond the five human senses.

Every living being is capable of intention. When intentions are aligned, you get action. When intentions counter other intentions, you get conflict and a diminishing of the life force of living beings.

Living beings seem to be able to detect intention on the part of other living beings, whether these intentions are expressed visibly in the physical universe or not.

If you take a group of human beings and attempt to motivate them to perform some task, their performance will be determined by the amount of harmony in their intentions. If part of the group has intentions that oppose the intentions of the rest of the group, the result of the groups activity will be reduced by that amount.

It is not always easy to communicate the goals and purposes of a group within the group and this lack of communication will almost guarantee that there will be a misalignment of the intentions within the group. This misalignment occurs in groups of all sizes, from nations down to the individual with conflicting goals that he has not sorted out yet.

The existence of counter-intentions within groups and within the individual is well-documented, but the handlings for these counter-intentions are not as well understood. Basically, the counter-intentions need to be identified, and the reasons for their existence examined until a resolution can be achieved.

So, how does this discussion of intention and counter-intention relate to forecasting the future? Events happen because there is an intention for the event to happen. When a group of individuals intend something to happen and it doesn’t, there is a good reason why it did not happen. Some other individuals intended that there would be a different result. There may have been no outward sign of opposition, but there was a counter-intention that blocked the earlier intention.

Intentions do affect the physical universe, even those intentions that are not spoken aloud. Trying to create something positive in the presence of negative intentions will usually result in failure or unnecessary delays. The opposition can be passive or even extend to sabotage.

The necessity for alignment of intentions means that opposition needs to be fully handled before beginning work on any project. The requirements are the same, whether the project is an additional deck for the back of the house or an ambitious space program. There has to be a clear intention on the part of all concerned for the project to succeed and on how it will be done.

Sometimes the team running the project is in full agreement, but they have not secured agreement from the people who will be affected by the project. Cross country pipelines are an example of this type of incomplete planning, and the projects are delayed for years and occasionally shut down.

Some products are developed by a hard-working team that takes a bright idea, and working in total harmony creates a product that meets cost goals and can be efficiently manufactured. If that project team has not surveyed potential customers and market conditions, they may have a beautiful product they cannot sell. The Edsel automobile made by the Ford Motor Company is an example of this.

How does this information help us for projects and activities at the personal or family level? In each of the failed programs and projects mentioned above, there was counter-intention that surfaced early in the program and was brushed aside as being of no importance. The objections raised were judged to be of no significance.

Let’s take this problem and turn it inside out. What if we carefully documented and analyzed every opposition to our plans and worked out a solution BEFORE starting the detailed planning process?

Let us say we want to put in a highway or rapid transit line between two cities, We might want to gather all of the data that will justify the construction first, but we should handle all of the objections to building this highway before investing effort in the detailed design. Furthermore, we should be aware of any new objections to the construction of the project and handle the objections as they arise.

Let’s apply this principle to a much smaller problem, like starting your own business. Obviously, writing a business plan and getting it reviewed is a good step, but getting consensus from all of the people who will be working with you or affected by this business is necessary too. If you work out the problems of financing and location and what you will be selling with the people you will be working with and even those who will be your customers, you will be much more likely to be successful. Companies are not started in a vacuum. Someone has spotted a need and figured out how to satisfy that need in a way that will make money. Getting others to participate in this game removes much of the counter-intention and makes it more likely that the new business will succeed.

To boil this down to the essential ingredients for success, the intentions of all concerned with the final result will determine what happens. If everyone concerned is intending the same thing, that is what will happen.

In a complex situation with many people involved, any counter-intention can have disastrous results. Inattention, carelessness, and lack of understanding can result in a disaster even though many people worked very hard to achieve a result.

On projects of a personal nature, pay close attention to any lack of cooperation or enthusiasm, and handle them immediately if you wish to achieve your goals. This applies to your personal feelings as well as the feelings of others. All intentions need to be aligned if you are to achieve the future you envision.

SOME RECENT OBSERVATIONS ABOUT GIVING AND RECEIVING ADMIRATION – PART TWO

More About Creating An Environment Full Of Things To Admire

Artists create things to admire and in this way transform a neutral or negative environment into one which makes the observers feel more alive. When we observe something created with the intention to be admired, we admire the creation and we admire the creator. The intention to be admired can be perceived by the observer.

For example, graffiti can be gang signs used to claim territory, to make threats, and to challenge rival gangs. These generally consist of letters and numbers.

On the other hand, there is incredible graffiti art that is intended to communicate a message or a concept and these attract admiration from all who view them.

Communities tend to regulate which art can be displayed in public places, but artists have been known to push the boundaries and can overwhelm the authorities with their creativity.

When a community or country is overrun by invaders, one of the targets of the destruction is the artwork from the previous inhabitants. There are many famous examples of this type of destruction in Egypt, Greece, and in Rome. Perhaps this destruction is to prevent any admiration of the previous regimes.

If admiration is desired and artists work to make admirable creations, blocking that admiration by disfiguring statues is a revolutionary statement. That sentiment is still alive today when protesting groups damage statues that have nothing to do with their cause but are valued by the establishment they are seeking to bring down.

We can see from this that works of art make an environment more alive because they are admirable. If some group is trying to bring down the current leadership, it makes sense for them to destroy what made the current environment admirable. Laying waste to a country or city and toppling monuments is not a recent development. It is a way of destroying the final traces of an existing state.

SOME RECENT OBSERVATIONS ABOUT GIVING AND RECEIVING ADMIRATION

Admiring Someone Is Like Giving Them Life

When you admire someone, you give them a flow of life force without diminishing your own supply. If they become more alive when you admire them, that makes you feel better, and you both benefit.

You Can Admire Yourself

It is relatively easy as long as you realize you are a spirit having a human experience. You made an incredible number of decisions to arrive at the present moment in your current body with all of the conditions that come with that choice. Your sex, race, social status, and a few other factors were determined by your choice of mothers. If you decided to rise above the limitations of your birth circumstances, you have created a life and career that is admirable from a number of standpoints. You should also realize that you are free to change your life and career arc at any time and in any direction. If you can admire what you are doing that is positive, you will find that you will be able to do more of these activities.

You Should Look For Things To Admire

If life seems to be full of things you do not like, find something to admire, and life will become more enjoyable. When you are surrounded by things you detest or despise, this tends to suck the life out of you. Working for people who do not appreciate your efforts, trying to help people who do not want your help, being somewhere you are not wanted, all of these will drain you and leave you unhappy, and you will feel oppressed, invalidated, and so forth. I am not going to say this is all your fault, but somewhere along the line, you failed to understand that you need to have or create an environment where you have plenty of things to admire.

The Basis Of Admiration Is Exchange

We still have a further study to fully understand what this means, but our recent experiences show that admiring something that returns the flow will increase the life energy of all who participate in the exchange. Admiration is the giving of life, and when that which is admired responds in kind, both ends of the communication line benefit.

We have also found that when we admire something or someone sufficiently, we perceive information about the intentions of the person or the intentions that went into creating something, whether art or an object like a car. We may not receive admiration from the person or thing, but we gather information about the person or thing that lets us make intelligent decisions about how to deal with it in the future.

RECEIVING ADMIRATION IS NICE, BUT GIVING IT IS FAR BETTER FOR YOUR SANITY

Those who make their living by attracting admiration become dependent on the continuation of that flow. This tends to reward behavior that produces admiration rather than on behavior benefiting the person themselves. Performers are requested to play audience favorites time and time again, while comedians need new material to keep the admiration coming. In either case, the audience’s reaction becomes the controlling factor in the performer’s life until the performer finds a new audience.

Even in a work environment, a person can become addicted to admiration and, in this way, be controlled by those who dole out admiration sparingly to control the behavior of subordinates.

Referring to the comments made above about admiration and exchange, one should only accept admiration for work that meets your own standards and not be dependent on that admiration at all. Then when you receive admiration, you will see it as an acknowledgment of work well done, and not as a gift.

SOME BASICS ON USING ADMIRATION

PART ONE

I know all of you have admired something or someone in the past, but did you know that you can get in trouble if you admire someone without understanding what you are doing?

Admiration is a spiritual flow that makes the recipient and the sender feel better when delivered appropriately. I would like to share some of our findings to help you achieve the results you desire when you admire someone.

Correctly delivered admiration will increase the other person’s affinity for you and will make them feel more alive. You will also feel better when you can do this, and fortunately, this is an ability that can be learned. There are many ways to admire someone or something, but you should always feel free to admire in whatever way you feel comfortable while you are learning.

Why might you need training to admire someone? Like any flow, admiration can be done in a way that is too strong and can be delivered for too long. Your admiration can be inadvertently mixed with emotions that will create a negative effect on the object of your admiration. Admiration mixed with a hunger for sensation usually creates a negative impact on the person you are admiring in that way.

If you remember to admire people in a way that does not disturb them, you will find yourself with new friends, and life will be much happier than before you learned to admire people.

In Part Two, we will discuss the many benefits of learning how to admire people.


SOME BASICS ON USING ADMIRATION – Part Two

BENEFITS

There are many benefits to learning how to admire people, and when you learn them well enough to use them, your life will not be the same. I do not expect you to use these benefits without checking them out thoroughly, so do your best to test them in any way you choose.

Admiration is a highly desired flow by all living things.

Admiration makes people feel good while receiving it, while using it on others, and while teaching others to use it. This is what admiration and learning how to use it freely can do for you.

When we admire anyone, we increase their life force energy. This applies to non-human living things also.

Admiration is a way of affecting our environment and making it feel good about itself.
come
A being who can admire others freely has the power to increase another being’s life force.

Life force energy is a measure of the ability to put attention on to something. It is a measure of how alive someone is.

If you can admire something, you can become cause over it.

Rehabilitating our ability to admire things freely gives us greater control of our own lives.

Admiration is a way of affecting our environment and making it feel good about itself.

Using and Understanding admiration are two different activities.

You can be trained to use admiration for fun and profit without understanding the full range of opportunities that a full understanding of admiration opens up.

This means that you can be given a working knowledge of the power of admiration and can start using it in your daily lives after a short introduction.

In Part Three, we will cover the exact steps for using admiration to handle a difficult personal situation.


SOME BASICS ON USING ADMIRATION – Part Three

Using Admiration To Diffuse A Potentially Difficult Situation

Unlikely as it seems, there are many people whose jobs require them to exert control over others, and they often receive hostile glances and comments from the people they try to control. Cast your mind back to your encounters with clerks at the DMV and other government offices. If nothing appears, think of your last encounter with a policeman or customs clerk. If that does not bring up examples of bureaucratic unpleasantness, think of your last experience with a tired checkout clerk at the local market. Almost all of these people are forced to deal with members of the public who resent their very existence.

It is probably true to say that these people receive hostile glances and other flows even when they are trying to do their jobs in a proper and polite manner.

If you were to approach this harried person and just quietly admire the way they were managing not to scream, you just might make their day. Admiring someone for doing their job is not a difficult task and does not take words. It is always detected by the recipient and it makes them feel more alive, even if they do not understand why you are admiring them. It actually brings a bit of sanity into their lives and will usually make them smile.

If you were to approach the next person in charge of handling a line of customers and think to yourself how nice it is that this person is here to make things go smoothly, you would be casting out a flow of admiration for them doing a necessary job.

Every time I have done this, I have been greeted with a smile by the person in charge, and the transaction has gone smoothly. The person felt better, and so did I for being able to create this beneficial effect. Furthermore, the effect seems to be lasting as the person smiled at me during subsequent visits. 

Life is too short to go around making enemies. If you use the power of admiration to bring out the best in people, you will find the world to be a friendlier place.

 As you learn to use admiration to make people happier, you will find that you become happier yourself.

If you encounter people who do not respond to admiration, feel free to pity them. A person who cannot receive admiration has problems you are not equipped to resolve. They are almost as sick as the person who cannot admire others.

You are as sane as you can admire other people and living things.

If you find that you have difficulty admiring things, consult a counselor trained in delivering admiration processing. Send me a message at srtcounseling@gmail.com, and I will refer you to someone who can help.


What if you are not interested in using admiration?

There is a fascinating reason why a person would find the subject of admiration, boring or uninteresting. They have already determined that it won’t work for them, and they are looking for something else they can use to make their lives better and more enjoyable.

This may seem unlikely because anyone who has used admiration knows that admiring any living thing will increase its life energy. Still, if a person can’t seem to get a result by using admiration, they will search until they find something that does.

I have used admiration to resolve a number of different situations, and it addresses a wide range of material universe problems, even though admiration is a spiritual force and can’t be measured with scientific instruments. 

I have yet to see a situation that cannot be improved by admiring it, so why would someone not be interested in using admiration? They will only feel this way because they have already decided that their problem cannot be dealt with admiration.

Why would a person decide that a particular problem or person cannot be handled by admiring it? Because the person cannot bring themselves to admire any part of the problem or the person who is giving them a problem.

They have already decided that the person or problem is too much for them to handle and are willing to remain a victim of the person or situation.

Being a victim is an effective way of banishing any responsibility for the situation you are currently in. It is someone else’s fault that things are not going well, and anyone who is trying to make you responsible for any part of it is making you wrong! 

Now, you might try admiring the person who has managed to make you into a victim instead of a competent human being, but that would break up the game you are playing with yourself, and you might have to find another game to play.

I would like you to play the game of being human with great skill and that requires you to be able to admire others and even yourself. If you are not interested in understanding and using admiration, you are playing the game of being a victim, which means you are putting yourself at the mercy of others.

You have also elected someone else to be in charge of your life.

If you have read this far and want to be more in charge of your life,

send me a message and let me coach you to use admiration in your life.

CAN YOU FIND SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF TO ADMIRE?

If nothing springs to mind, you may suffering from a lack of admiration from others and that is not a good thing. Being raised in a household where you are not admired is not that uncommon and people with that background have great difficulty admiring what they have accomplished.

If you have difficulty finding anything about yourself to admire, I can help you overcome that disability in just a few sessions of confidential online counseling to rehabilitate your ability to find things to admire in yourself and in life.

I have 45 years of counseling experience and I have been working with a team of people who are researching what admiration processing can do to handle situations that traditional counseling can’t touch. If you have trouble finding anything about your life to admire, give me a call to schedule a free online consultation.

Learning To Work With Admiration For Fun And Profit

The more we study admiration, the more opportunities appear to apply it to material universe problems. I will be hosting three online meetings this weekend to explore the different ways you can train yourself to use admiration to heal your body, attract new business, and to persuade people to buy your products and adopt your ideas.

We have been considering admiration as a flow that makes people feel better and more alive. Using admiration to heal injured bodies has been observed, but deserves more research as it is quite easy to do, once you can figure out what to admire.

Recently I observed that a material object could be imbued with admiration which persists and can be perceived by other observers. The admired object seemed to have a special quality that attracts attention from other observers. I would like to discuss the use of admiration to advertise and sell products.

This will expand the concept of using spiritual flows in life from a dynamic activity to an enhancement of material universe products with specific spiritual attributes. If we can carry this off, we will develop a technology for using admiration in business as well as in regular life.

I observed many years ago that we can perceive intentions in physical universe objects. When you are sufficiently sensitive, you can perceive the intention that created and shaped an art object or even a mass-produced device. That is because the device would not exist unless an intention created it.

I observed recently that I could perceive admiration as it was applied to art and other material objects. This is not necessarily admiration from the creator. It could also be admiration from an observer. The effect was startling as the admired object seemed to have a special quality about it.

Join me on Saturday, 9-19-20 for a free workshop in which we discuss the various ways we can use admiration to enhance our lives and generate new business. There is a great deal we have yet to discover about using admiration to heal bodies and as a training practice. We will be using this workshop to generate a list of areas that we can use admiration as an expansion tool. Use this link to participate: https://zoom.us/j/4710611444

Join me on Sunday, 9-20-20, for a webinar on imbuing products with admiration. We will be running some exercises to enhance perception and to demonstrate the potential for making a product more desirable through imbuing it with admiration. We will also discuss the downside to this practice so we get a realistic view of the benefits and the dangers of enhancing a product offering with admiration. Use this link to participate: https://zoom.us/j/4710611444

The fee is $10 and can be paid using this link: paypal.me/DavidStLawrence/10

On Monday, 9-21-20, we will be holding a meeting of the SRT Academy where we will discuss the potential for expanding our businesses and careers through the use of admiration in daily operations and in the imbuing of products and services with admiration. We will also cover the use of admiration in enhancing the value of our services as employees of an organization. Use this link to participate: https://zoom.us/j/4710611444

On Monday, 9-7-20, we will be discussing Recognizing Our Kinship With All Living Things

This is an advanced topic and relates to our level of empathy. If you are lacking in empathy, this may be a difficult topic to experience as much of the material will not be real.

I discovered last night that some of my clients who were not able to communicate with spirits were simply lacking empathy. Our discovery of that situation can open the door to reaching more new people and giving them the opportunity to discover spiritual matters.

The bottom line is that people who don’t have empathy cannot recognize life force, except for their own. This makes them seem narcissistic and cruel and limits their ability to interact meaningfully with others.

I think we have a tool that can increase a person’s empathy and restore their ability to contribute to civilization.
