I once had a beloved friend send me an article where someone actually called it “evil” to seriously advocate that “everything happens for a reason”. And I get it. I get why they should think like that. Anything that should make it “reason..able” that people do unconscionable things and think it reason…able that ghastly things happen to good people, defenceless small children and animals – anything that could even faintly imply that … ugh… No, I get it. How can we explain some of the incredibly horrifying things that happen in the world and glibly say to ourselves “everything happens for a reason.” I can see the sheer arrogance of that.
“Everything happens for a reason” is a paradox. A paradox is something that seems like a contradiction, but isn’t really. It SEEMS like a contradiction to say that there’s rightness behind even the most utterly wrong of wrongnesses, it SEEMS like a contradiction to say that there’s a rightness behind everything wrong thing that happens, it SEEMS like a contradiction to say what I’ve just said above and also believe that everything happens for a reason.
But it’s not a contradiction at all. The RIGHTNESS doesn’t in any way take away from the WRONGNESSES that I talked about in the first paragraph – the rightness simply forms part of the whole.
Pause on that for a minute.
“The rightness doesn’t in any way take away from the wrongness, it simply forms part of the whole.”
And in the thousands of times I’ve helped people find it, the answer to each utter WRONGNESS, the RIGHTNESS behind the wrongness, is as unique and as beautiful as every individual that I’ve ever worked with.
The Paradox is an experience
The Paradox is not a mind thing. It’s not an idea or a concept that you can think your way to, in the way of learning knowledge – and that’s why this can’t be taught in the old ways of learning. It’s an experiential thing and that’s my skill – helping people find experiential things like Feel for their horse and the Paradox in action.
There’s an energy at the heart of that paradox – when we find the balance point between the rightness and wrongness – that is so powerful that it’s hard to comprehend until you’ve experienced it in all its stages. There’s many, many levels of it that range from simple ahaa moments of understanding, to life changing floods of expansive feelings that at the top end of the range goes all the way to intense joy.
This energy at the heart of the Paradox, this flow, opens up all kinds of possibilities – a flood of healing, releasing of old trauma (even super big trauma like PTSD), understanding people events and circumstances in a new way, flashes of insight that enables solving even difficult problems that people think are insoluble, conflict resolution without anyone having to give up anything (did you hear that!) and powerful manifesting that’s so strong it’s a joy to watch it in action.
We did a Paradox of Healing clinic back in February this year. I did an analysis of the email clicks and opens this morning, to compare how many people turned up live to the classes, to the list of people I had made who experienced breakthroughs in their healing during the clinic. I can see that of the 51 people plus staff who registered, 44 actually clicked on the links to turn up live to classes and 36 of those people experienced noticeable progress if not profound healing. That’s 36 people out of 44 and the rest were on their way to it. THAT incredible success rate is the power of “everything happens for a reason” – the power of the Paradox – in action.
Business and Organisations
And now we’re going to do another live online clinic specifically aimed at people who want to bring this kind of work to their businesses and organisations:
- understanding where people are coming from so you can manage both people and organisations effectively,
- understand events and circumstances so that you can work with them instead of struggling against them,
- get flashes of insight routinely and reliably that enable us to solve even difficult problems that people think are insoluble,
- problem solving with whatever your passions are around people, family, integrity, environmental regeneration, economic sustainability and social justice in all its forms.
- conflict resolution without anyone having to give up anything,
- and powerful manifesting that’s so strong it’s a joy to watch it in action.
This is powerful change and powerful decision making in action.
Why would you want to share this?
I am just about beside myself with excitement for the outcomes that happen with the Einstein Factor, in a world where everything that I care about and you care about, is possible. So I’d love it if you’d share this around to every open minded, progressive business person you know and let’s get this ball rolling.
