“I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.”
-- Robert Frost
1. A flash goes up and down the spine
Gooesbump on your arms.
Most people (myself included, for most of my life) just ping-pong between bad and good.
But it never wakes the world up.
Monet was good but Van Gogh was crazy good.
Crazy Good goes out beyond what anyone has anticipated.
2. The most interesting question ever
Can your whole life become crazy good?
How do we find that awakening ourselves? How do we get there?
The opposite direction of crazy good is victim thinking. People who were able to identify and drop victim thinking made a great gains in their lives. But it wasn't until I was well into my fifties that I found out a person can do even better than that.
Certainly moving away from the victim mindset was always reliably refreshing and energizing. But the real magic happened as I began to realize there was no upper limit to the life one could experience, or the creativity one could bring to this planet.
4. A lonely cell, my only hell
Part of my own path was to look back and see that everything I used to complain about in my past was actually there for my own benefit.
victim mentality can be so conditioned, so pounded in, so deeply ingrained, that it looks more like a family tradition, it's like hypnotized, knee-jerk response to everything, a default setting in the mind.
We are blind to it most of our lives, and then something beautiful happens and we can see.
I may be stuck in victim thinking temporarily, but if I step back and breathe I can see that I don't have to be. I don't have to believe the victim thoughts.
I can choose freedom, my life can become better than good. It flies out there beyong good.
