Heather Hunt, reporting I love events like this because it gives me a chance to spend time with students outside of class and the school and learn more about myself through the process. I deepened my understanding of the intrinsic value of solidifying an ideal, purpose, and goal for an activity and then was able to share/teach more about it to others.
Not long after a few of us arrived at the movie theater, Luis and I decided to go downstairs near the entrance to let people know about the dream booth. (See the attachment and great little cards that Brenton designed!) We passed out some cards to a few people then Luis turned to me and said “I’m uncomfortable.” I asked why and he said, “I just realized…I don’t have a purpose.” As soon as he said that I realized, too, that I had not established a clear ideal and purpose. We each took a moment to collect out thoughts and formulate an ideal and purpose. My ideal was connectedness for the purpose of understanding giving and receiving. Luis and I discussed how we could feel our vibration change upon establishing a clear ideal and purpose. The feeling for me was one of confidence and security.
I had clearly identified the “candle flame” that I was going to concentrate on for the evening. My flame was connectedness and I truly believed I would gain greater understanding of giving and receiving with every interaction. My alignment and commitment to this is what led to the security. As I used my will to give my attention to this, any limiting thought disappeared because I was consciously receiving my purpose by observing myself in conversations with people. In other words, I was focused on what I wanted to understand and give to others instead of on what I didn’t want to experience, like rejection from those who didn’t care to understand their dreams. I learned to be more accepting of myself and others because people were interested, others weren’t at all and some just needed more information before expressing interest; either way, I wasn’t attached to their response. I was attached to my Self. Through this process I strengthened my security, self value, and confidence in my ability to communicate.
I made sure that Golbahar and Leah had a clear ideal and purpose. Leah did. Golbahar had forgotten to do so and recognized how this was making a difference in her experience. (sidenote: I am so proud of these two amazing young women and I encourage everyone to ask them about what they have been learning lately about becoming directors.) I also explained to them the need as directors, teachers and leaders, to always make sure that everyone has at least some idea of what they want to build within themselves or understand more (with any event, project or lab position). This is important for many reasons…here’s a few…
•When you practice affirming an ideal and purpose, committing to it and talking about it, this sets an example for others to follow; and it builds peace and security within.
•As creators we need to be clear about what we are creating inside ourselves as well as outside. If we don’t know what we are creating inside ourselves then we can feel empty, lost or confused. I am learning that when I know what I am wanting to build within then I know more of who I am in the moment.
•When I, as an individual know who I want to become then I can better understand how I am adding to the whole.
•Establishing and staying committed to a clear ideal and purpose is vital part of the process of becoming a conscious creator.
I send you all my best for your next school event, project or personal endeavor. May you all live your ideal and receive your purpose in highest way imaginable.
With Love and Gratitude,
