If you have a desire to allow the light you sense within you to shine into the world…
If you have a hunger to pursue your passions wherever they lead…
If you want to be paid for what you love to do…
Then welcome aboard The Great Genius Adventure! As the weeks and months unfold we’ll explore all the ways you can discover your potential, and unleash it into the world. We’ll be asking the “three wishes” questions, again and again:
Who are you?
What do you want?
And how do you get it?
Who are you?
Figuring this out is, paradoxically the beginning, and the purpose of life’s quest. We are our history, our behaviors, our genes, our thoughts and and our desires. But we’re also so much more than these. But with all of this noise going on, it’s tough to hear beyond it.
Some schools of though suggest abdication of all such temporary desires. But it is the Western way to give in to them in order to move through to the other side. So, go ahead, be successful, however you define it. Make lots of money, if you so desire. Enjoy yourself. As long as it harms no one, satiate your whims.
Then laugh at the joke of it all. In the words of the comedian Bill Hicks: “It’s just a ride.”
What do you want?
Be honest with yourself. Do you actually know what you want? Really know? Most people don’t. They have some wishy-washy notion of just wanting, without a clear intention of what that is. Which is why isn’t so difficult to manifest things.
When you truly know what you want in the present moment, and are willing to surrender to that desire, things start moving forward. And lately, things have started to kick into gear faster than ever.
What you’ll learn how to do over the weeks of The Great Genius Adventure is how to explore what you want. To clarify your desires in a way that you can transform your wishes into actions enable you to achieve your goals.
How do you get it?
Here’s where myriad skills that can be learned come into play. Self-management, willpower, brainstorming, technology — there are many tips and techniques you can harness to manifest the life of your dreams.
The ancients had many skills about how that we have lost over the millennia. Many of these we’re only just rediscovering via science and experience. You, too, can try things out, and figure out which ways work for your unique style.
You don’t have to move to a monastery to find enlightenment. The stuff of everyday life — your community, your work, your emails, even doing dishes — all of it is fodder for your own self mastery. If you know how to use it. That’s what you’ll learn how to do.
I’ll be acting as your personal genie as you discover the answer to your “three wishes” for yourself. I’ve been blessed to have been trained in many ways, ancient and modern. I’ve spent years studying ancient techniques such as shamanism, astrology and magic. But also the modern practices of personal development and organization, hypnosis, and project planning.
As we pick up speed, you’ll also have the chance to learn from your fellow travelers on the journey. If you’re committed to the path, post your thoughts and experiences for others to learn from. We are all on the ride together, and bring one another the opportunities to learn and grow.
Such adventures aren’t linear. We spiral our way to deeper understandings with each revolution.
