I have been doing a lot of work while I seemingly do nothing… or not much.
Something is driving me…
I used to say it this way: “I can’t do no other”…
I am very fond of weirdly worded things, because they poke a hole in the cultural fabric and allow things to be seen that normally are hidden behind the fabric…
One of the issues people would struggle if they gave a hoot, if they really understood that it’s crucial to get, is what is coming from where… What is coming from their insides and what is peripheral to them.
One example is what is the motive power of your actions? Does it come from the inside, or does it come from the outside?
Here is an article that is right on the money:
The difference between ambition and desire
Ambition & desire are two seemingly similar ideas but in reality are concepts that have a world of difference. Ambition is the desire for achievement, while desire in its most raw form is just pure greed and avarice. While it is perfectly reasonable to be ambitious it really does not bode well if we are too desirous of something.
Oftentimes we get confused with the philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita (Hindu Holy book) desireless actions. We think that this basically means going through life in a mechanical way without any ambition. We then start to drift aimlessly in life.
Ambition is very important in life. It is the chief motivator that propels us to be achieve great things, It makes us want to do better in life. However pure desire is bad. Desire for power, wealth or fame is extremely bad and in fact can tempt people to use dishonest means.
Ambition is never affected by evil thoughts. Ambition is pure. It is the driving force which makes us do things, to get better in life.
Ambition propels us to great heights while craving or wanton desire can really result in a person’s downfall.
So while we should be ambitious we should really avoid greed and avarice.
The same question applies to the issue: what is your Self? Who are you?
Most people, when they attempt to answer that question, Who are you?, they talk about their religion, ethnicity, profession, gender… but these are all external to them.
The only thing that is internal is what you can fully generate. Cause. Change.
So what can you generate? Can you change your gender? Not really… but you can be responsible for it. Can you change it? Just ask the transgender people… you cannot change it, because gender is not what sexual organs you have… it is a lot more than that.
Can you change your feelings? No, not really. The therapist that are good at that, like Katie, and to some degree Abraham/Hicks, they use changing words to change how you feel.
You can change how you look, but you are not your looks.
You can change your behavior, but somehow, underneath the thin veneer, it is still you there…
