I, THE GENERATOR
THE PARADIGM OF SOURCE
(being written, contact me if you are interested in it being completed with more priority)
To be the generator or to be "the effect"? Which will create more happiness and effectiveness?
How do I move toward (and close to) being the generator of my life and all that is in it?
"I generate" versus "I am generated upon" (for whose agenda and under whose control?)
THE "PROACTIVE" GENERATOR REALIZES AND FOLLOWS...
Less control → The "payoff" average ↓
Level of direct control ↓ → Less of a chance of working
Unreliable source → Results are unreliable!
Lack of wisdom/ability to contribute → Less ability to choose rightly → Effectiveness ↓
Rule: Don't spend time on attempting to control the uncontrollable, the unreliable, the unknowing
Consider anything gotten from "out there" as just a bonus, but never the key source.
Remember "out there" is not a reliable or strong source!!!!
Childview - Letting primitive mind and childhood thinking = Victim, others generate the meaning, "me not think it out", my experience of life is one of fear, with a few bones thrown to me.
THE PSYCHOLOGY OF "EXTERNAL LOCUS OF CONTROL
External locus of control = The world happens to you
Internal locus of control = You happen to the world
The contrast is also portrayed in this:
Stimulus → Response
Stimulus → Choice → Response
"Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom." – Viktor Frankl
Between the stimulus and the response is your greatest power--you have the freedom to choose your ...
(It is also true that we are not able to catch the "animal" responses in us before the impulse occurs. In that case, the response is not devastating, as it will fade within 90 seconds if we do not reinforce it. Once we're aware of the impulse, we have the choice of bringing in our wisdom and creating a different response, such as "soothing", "reassurance" or simply blowing the false belief out of the water! Studying the "logic" of how the primitive brain works helps you spot the "dialogue" that is going on and to nip the conversation in the bud, as being preposterous or otherwise untrue.)
