Am I really more than enough? Am I really the Source? How do I come to know and believe these truths about myself? These are just a few of the questions I’ve been asking myself since Dr. Gary presented the Radical Generosity series on February 14 and 21. Both of those Sunday services were very meaningful to me, and I want to share with you why.
You see, over the last 3-4 years, I’ve been working on becoming more aware of physical self, as well as my thoughts and my feelings. On the surface, I thought I was doing pretty well. Yet, I clearly see I have continued to struggle with my own Lack Attacks. As Dr. Gary mentioned during his series, I have learned how to make most things in my life “not enough,” and that was the message I received at the Lack Attack service. It’s clear to me that my belief system is run by lack. I recall the many times I’ve said and/or thought lack statements, “I don’t have time, I don’t have enough money, I don’t have enough skill or experience to do that,” and so-on. And of course there have been an unknown number of unconscious thoughts too, but I can’t remember those. So why does this life pattern continue to repeat itself in my life today? I know why. It’s because until now, I haven’t prescribed myself the antidote – Radical Generosity. In his Source It, Don’t Force It message, Dr. Gary shared that Radical Generosity comes from a place of more than enough. He said there is a tipping point, and we can come to know that we are the Source. He also shared there are three Elements of Transformation that will lead us to Radical Generosity: 1) Self-Awareness, 2) Choice Point, and 3) Authentic Action. Together, these elements of transformation can become a practice of coming from a place of more than enough. I’m certainly aware that I have Lack Attacks. What is also true is that I am working very hard, harder today than in the last 3-4 years, on becoming more self-aware. As Yoda said, “do or not do, there is no try.” That’s why I am taking time for self-care by exercising, playing with and walking my dog, and most importantly, sharing my physical and emotional state with my wife Rebecca every night at dinner. As a result I am changing the percentages of being only 5% conscious and mostly 95% unconscious to a much higher conscious percentage. I’m ready to believe and know 100% of what the truth of me is when I’m at the Choice Point. I’m ready and willing to take Authentic Action. I am ready to make this a practice in my life – a practice of knowing that I am more than enough because when I say and own it, it feels great, and I believe it. Now if I can get those darn shadow qualities to stay away, I will reach my tipping point!
