“That’s your doing. Now in order to affect that doing I am going to recommend that you learn another doing… It may hook you to another doing and then you may realize that both doings are lies, unreal, and that to hinge yourself to either one is a waste of time, because the only thing that is real is the being in you that is going to die. To arrive at that being is the note-doing of the self.”
Carlos Castaneda

Charles Eisenstein: Receive a Vision

n

“We must learn to see the world through the eyes of the gift …

it is not ours to decide what is true or possible. Some teachings ask us to start by creating a vision, but this is mistaken; the proper way to start is to receive a vision … The second step is to heal the wounds and doubts that that vision illuminates … The third step is to bow into service to that which wants to be born …

… A leader is the holder of a story, someone whose experience of its reality is deep enough so that she can hold the belief on behalf of others …

The deeper our service to that which wants to be born, the more it is able to arrange the synchronistic encounters and fortuitous events that allow us to accomplish that which lies beyond our understanding …

This whole process of cocreating change starts not with faith but with honesty… to believe in a true vision that contradicts the consensus view of what is possible or worthwhile … To trust a moment of clarity and carry it forward, to translate it into belief and act from it amid all the voices that say it is crazy or impossible, is no trivial matter.”

Charles Eisenstein: Obviously, a gift

n

“Things have to happen that we don’t know how to make happen. If you don’t ‘make’ it happen, and it happens, then how does it happen? Obviously, it happens as a gift.

How and why does this happen? If we could some how master the technology of being in the right place in the right time, if we could learn to ride the flow of synchronicity, then we would have accessed a power greater than anything the world of force is capable of”

Charles Eisenstein: No Map

n

“When we have a map from A to B, we can just follow the directions. Now is not that time. The calculable results are not enough. We need miracles. We have caught a glimpse of our destination, the destination that hope foretells, but we have no idea how to get there. We walk an invisible path with no map and cannot see where any turning will lead.

… It is not going to help you to make choices from the calculating mind, But it will provide a logical framework within which our heart-based choices make a lot more sense.”

Charles Eisenstein: Our House is on Fire

n

“Specifically, when are the methods of ‘practicality’ appropriate? Quite simply, they are appropriate when we know how to do something from within our current understanding of causality. If your stove is on fire and you have a fire extinguisher, then of course you use the fire extinguisher. You don’t ignore it and pray for a miracle.

But by the same token, if your house is a roaring inferno and all you have is a puny fire extinguisher that you know is far insufficient to the task, you shouldn’t just wave it in front of the flames in a posture of heroism.

The latter situation is a good description of our current predicament. Yes, it is true, our house is on fire … But what should we do about it? Or more to the point, what should you do about it? What, according to the conventional notions of causality that nearly everyone in modern society has deeply internalized, can you do that is practical. Nothing. Therefore, we must learn to follow another kind of guidance, one that leads to an expanded realm of what is possible.”

Charles Eisenstein: Futility of Control

n

“The ideology of control says that if we can only identify the “cause”, we can control climate change. Fine, but what if the cause is everything? Economy, politics, emissions, agriculture, medicine … all the way to religion, psychology, our basic stories through which we apprehend the world? We face then the futility of control and the necessity for transformation.”
