A Vision for Conscious Casual Conversation

We see a world where we have awakened to what is is that we are creating with our everyday thoughts and words; where we no longer sit around with our friends and acquaintances talking about Aunt Martha’s disease, or Billy Joe’s misfortune, or hard times, or sad stories of any kind because we have realized that what we put our attention on is what we’re creating and becoming. We understand that the ideas, values and beliefs we talk about are what we’re reinforcing, making stronger and bringing to life.

Now, we are more conscious about that which we create. We refrain from taking part in conversations that don’t serve us or anyone else. Instead, we enthusiastically talk about the beneficent projects and positive things that are going on in our lives – and in doing so, our casual conversations have turned from the morose to the mindful. Now the time we spend with friends and family is fun again. And when we leave to go home we feel good about our visit and the things that transpired around our kitchen tables, patios and living rooms.

 

 

 

 

“Almost every personnel director and executive in every corporation in the country somewhere or another makes this mistake. He thinks confusion is efficiency and alertness, and he thinks that effort is a good denominator for the amount of accomplishment. ‘Took the fellow twenty-five days to draw up this set of plans, they must be good plans.’

“If you’re on the ball, you would say something entirely different. You would say, ‘The man took twenty-five days to draw this little set of plans here?’

“He’ll say, ‘Yes, yes, yes.’

“‘Well, you’d better get another architect.’

“‘No, we’re already overdue on the building.’

“‘No, no, no, you get another architect. You get me one that’ll draw these up this evening.’ You’ll wind up with some buildable plans.”

“Opportunity is sometimes hard to recognize if you’re only looking for a lucky break.”

“You will be able to trace this individual’s present and his hopes for the future down to the conclusions in his life which he made himself, which inhibit his accomplishment of any goal in the future and which inhibit his vanquishing of the fears he has for the future. …

“Because he kept getting yanked out of this place and that place every time he was a kid—he’ll suddenly realize that his goal is to settle down. But he can’t settle down because every time he said he was settled down, his mother or father grabbed him by the nape of the neck and moved him someplace else. He could never have any friends because every time he made any friends, he had to move. This is the way it looked to him. He made this conclusion himself. …

“Sanity is dependent upon computation into the future, smooth planning about the future—happiness, height on the Tone Scale, lack of fear, all of these things—smooth planning about the future.”
