Wrapping things up

Thursday, December 27, 2007

Hi guys! Sorry to be so late to post. I have been living a fever dream the last 2 days... drifting around the house like a melted snowflake... really! I had an awesome Christmas this year. And then BANG! I got the flu. So, that's where I've been.

It's time to wrap up the Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire. It's been our longest project thus far, and I wonder if we can even remember the way things were when we started. The questions to answer are these:

  1. Did you feel that this project "worked" for you?
  2. In what way?
  3. Did you participate fully in Chopra's program? Or was your participation more selective?
  4. Would you recommend this particular project to someone else as a way to achieve prosperity? If so, why? If not, why not?
  5. What did you learn?
  6. Did you achieve any of your goals? Were any desires spontaneously fulfilled?
  7. How has your life improved?
  8. What was your favorite aspect of this project?
  9. What was your least favorite aspect of this project?
  10. Do you have any insights that you would like to share?

Hi, this is not so related to your page, but it is the site you asked me 1 month ago about the abs diet. I tried it, worked well. Well here is the site

Adam: Come on, tell the truth. I did not ask you about any diet. You are leaving this identical message everywhere you go, hoping it will generate traffic to your site... and maybe even some sales. And I have to tell you, if you start out with a lie, how do you expect anyone to believe anything else? Interestingly, I'm replying to your comment even though I know you will never read it.

OK, here goes with my feedback on the Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire:

1 and 2. I felt that this project "worked" on many levels. I don't have more money, but I don't have a zero balance in my checking account either. Which is surprising since I have missed quite a bit of work due to sleet, ice, and freezing rain. What I feel it did was open up many channels within me that were blocked and in need of attention.

3. I was not "good" about doing everything every day. I did meditate at least once a day... and it was very helpful in a really subtle way. However, I got bored with the "so hum" meditation... it became rather "ho hum" to me... and even though my day was better when I meditated, the enthusiasm to do it tended to wane over time.

I loved the archetype thing, and I did do that. However, I did not invoke my archetypes every day because to me, that seemed excessive and made me feel as if I was whining, and begging, and being "needy". It did change my internal dialogue though, and I'm glad to know who they are, and I do feel that their energy is always available to me.

As for the sutra practice. I found it impossible to do every day. In my opinion, Chopra was having us do way too much at once. I liked the sutras.. I liked the sutra statements... they had a calming effect when I read them. I think that we would do better to sometime pick ONE sutra practice and do JUST THAT for a month. I am also contemplating picking a sutra and doing it every day until it becomes a part of me... and then doing another one... etc.

4. Would I recommend Chopra's program to someone else? Yes, and maybe. I might suggest a sutra practice... I might suggest the meditation... I might suggest the archetypes... and I would probably recommend the book. Would I call it foolproof? No. Would I say it works? I'd say, it probably works if you have the discipline to actually DO it.

5. I learned... I made so much personal progress that it's hard to say just what I did learn. It wasn't so much that I discovered anything new, it was more like I went down inner pathways that I hadn't explored in a long time. I feel much better about myself and about my life in general.

6. I'm not sure that I achieved any "goals" and I think it might be because I don't think I even wrote any down. I'll have to go back through the archives and check. I did have some desires spontaneously fulfilled. The Faery Cards - for one.

7. My life has improved in that this is the first Christmas in I don't know, maybe 20 years that I am not depressed.

8. My favorite aspect of this project? Hmmm... I think the archetypes.

9. The least favorite? My least favorite part was discovering how much I am lacking in self discipline. I found myself really wishing that just talking about it, or blogging it, could make it happen without me actually having to DO any of it. LOL.

10. Insights? I have noticed that the more profoundly something will affect me.. my life.. my circumstances.. and yes, even my checkbook... the harder it is for me to fully commit to it. Particularly if that profound change is for the better. If the change is for the worse, it's so much easier to take that downward slide... It's almost like changes for the good means swimming upstream. Which is certainly something for me to think about.

Ok, I've blabbered on long enough. Now it's someone elses turn!

I agreed with much of what Shirley said. I loved the way this project worked for me, even though doing the meditations and studying on the meaning in the sutras was hard for me to do every day. i don't know if my life is way better, but it is better in some financial ways...this was the first Christmas in five years that i did not have to borrow money from my mom to get the kid's Christmas gifts. that was a big thing for me. i still have an underlying current of energy though that this projext stirred up. i made myself a place to meditate and extensively think about where my practice spiritually can link up to the life i am leading. there seemed to be some fundamental truth and reality to this project that instantly bonded with the way i already was thinking, and made me feel more spiritually intact. of course i would reccomend it to other people, but somewhat tweaked the way that Shirley suggested. i still (maybe even more strongly because of this project) believe that there is prosperity all around us if we just open our eyes and our hearts to it.
