The Future is Now

23 Jul

This is a continuation of my view on the Games and it’s future as well as humanity’s future.  Have you ever read the Celestine Prophecy?  If you have, have you read the 10th and 11th insights?  I highly recommend you reading them if you haven’t.  Basically the Insights go as follow:

THE FIRST INSIGHT . . . A CRITICAL MASS

A new spiritual awakening is occurring in human culture, an awakening brought about by a critical mass of individuals who experience their lives as a spiritual unfolding, a journey in which we are led forward by mysterious coincidences.

THE SECOND INSIGHT . . . THE LONGER NOW

This awakening represents the creation of a new, more complete worldview, which replaces a five-hundred-year-old preoccupation with secular survival and comfort. While this technological preoccupation was an important step, our awakening to life’s coincidences is opening us up to the real purpose of human life on this planet, and the real nature of our universe.

THE THIRD INSIGHT . . . A MATTER OF ENERGY

We now experience that we live not in a material universe, but in a universe of dynamic energy. Everything extant is a field of sacred energy that we can sense and intuit. Moreover, we humans can project our energy by focusing our attention in the desired direction…where attention goes, energy flows…influencing other energy systems and increasing the pace of coincidences in our lives.

THE FOURTH INSIGHT . . . THE STRUGGLE FOR POWER

Too often humans cut themselves off from the greater source of this energy and so feel weak and insecure. To gain energy we tend to manipulate or force others to give us attention and thus energy. When we successfully dominate others in this way, we feel more powerful, but they are left weakened and often fight back. Competition for scarce, human energy is the cause of all conflict between people.

THE FIFTH INSIGHT . . . THE MESSAGE OF THE MYSTICS

Insecurity and violence ends when we experience an inner connection with divine energy within, a connection described by mystics of all traditions. A sense of lightness–buoyancy–along with the constant sensation of love are measures of this connection. If these measures are present, the connection is real. If not, it is only pretended.

THE SIXTH INSIGHT . . . CLEARING THE PAST

The more we stay connected, the more we are acutely aware of those times when we lose connection, usually when we are under stress. In these times, we can see our own particular way of stealing energy from others. Once our manipulations are brought to personal awareness, our connection becomes more constant and we can discover our own growth path in life, and our spiritual mission–the personal way we can contribute to the world.

THE SEVENTH INSIGHT . . . ENGAGING THE FLOW

Knowing our personal mission further enhances the flow of mysterious coincidences as we are guided toward our destinies. First we have a question; then dreams, daydreams, and intuitions lead us towards the answers, which usually are synchronistically provided by the wisdom of another human being.

THE EIGHTH INSIGHT . . . THE INTERPERSONAL ETHIC

We can increase the frequency of guiding coincidences by uplifting every person that comes into our lives. Care must be taken not to lose our inner connection in romantic relationships. Uplifting others is especially effective in groups where each member can feel energy of all the others. With children it is extremely important for their early security and growth. By seeing the beauty in every face, we lift others into their wisest self, and increase the chances of hearing a synchronistic message.

THE NINTH INSIGHT . . .THE EMERGING CULTURE

As we all evolve toward the best completion of our spiritual missions, the technological means of survival will be fully automated as humans focus instead on synchronistic growth. Such growth will move humans into higher energy states, ultimately transforming our bodies into spiritual form and uniting this dimension of existence with the after-life dimension, ending the cycle of birth and death.

THE TENTH INSIGHT . . . HOLDING THE VISION

The Tenth Insight is the realization that throughout history human beings have been unconsciously struggling to implement this lived spirituality on Earth. Each of us comes here on assignment, and as we pull this understanding into consciousness, we can remember a fuller birth vision of what we wanted to accomplish with our lives. Further we can remember a common world vision of how we will all work together to create a new spiritual culture. We know that our challenge is to hold this vision with intention and prayer everyday.

THE ELEVENTH INSIGHT . . . EXTENDING PRAYER FIELDS

The Eleventh Insight is the precise method through which we hold the vision. For centuries, religious scriptures, poems, and philosophies have pointed to a latent power of mind within all of us that mysteriously helps to affect what occurs in the future. It has been called faith power, positive thinking, and the power of prayer. We are now taking this power seriously enough to bring a fuller knowledge of it into public awareness. We are finding that this prayer power is a field of intention, which moves out from us and can be extended and strengthened, especially when we connect with others in a common vision. This is the power through which we hold the vision of a spiritual world and build the energy in ourselves and in others to make this vision a reality.


The reason I bring this up is that for Crossfit to flourish we have to be positive and express our views positively.  Constructive criticism can always be expressed positively no matter how much you might disagree with someone (HQ).  As for people’s negative opinion of  Dave Castro, Tony Budding,  and even Coach Glassman, in the big picture they are trying their best.   When everyone starts to project positive energy toward a common goal, that being the growth of Crossfit as a sport, it will take off like no other sport have has EVER  ever grown…. (not to hate on you Nascar fans, I just don’t get watching a sport where all they do is drive in a circle, but that is just me)

As for athletes and their performances, I take responsibility in my wife failing to complete 2 workouts.  The first being the MU/ Snatch workout.. once I saw her start to fail reps my demeanor changed with hers and instead of staying positive I felt bad for her.  That doesn’t do her any good!  As for the HSPU/ Clean workout, same thing… once I saw her fail on first set of HSPU’s my demeanor changed real quick!  I know how HSPU’s are for her, she either has them or she doesn’t, and once she failed early on in the workout I again felt bad for her, and that does her NO GOOD!


Now for the positive effects of sending energy…take any of the UNreal performances you have ever seen live, remember what the crowd looked and sounded like?  Have you ever heard the phrase “he/she is feeding off the crowd”?  No doubt, all the energy that people were sending to Spealler in the last 3 wods, he ate it up, and it propelled him up 3 spots ON TO THE PODIUM!  Yes the workouts were made for Spealler but to watch him in person do what he did, their is no doubt in my mind the energy from the crowd gave him the extra push he needed.


Now for Humanity, if you haven’t noticed life goes quick!  It has already been 5 days since the conclusion of the Games.  So my challenge to myself and whoever is willing to take it is print these insights out and follow them as best as you can….. let’s see what happens!

Have A Great Weekend!
