Dear World…

Scenario: Imagine sitting down and writing a letter to everyone on the planet that will not be opened and read for 25 years. It’s an expression of what you hope has happened in that time. 

This was the opportunity given to me by the book Truth, Growth, Repeat by Mike Edmonds – an awesome book with a practical application for anyone in business, start-up mode or even just wanting to work out your purpose and what to do next.  There is a reason it’s title includes the statement [a business manual for generation why] and I highly recommend it.

Leadership Quote

I figure there’s no need to pussy foot around, it’s self explanatory as to what this is all about so here goes…

Dear World…

In 2019 there were fears about the jobs of the future, distrust of capitalism and because of Industry 4.0 in addition to Society 5.0 massive uncertainty for humanity’s ability to adapt, embrace and expand with the universe instead of spiraling into a black hole of unconsciousness. I had faith, belief, a knowingness that conscious capitalism, our endeavor for meaning and oneness would prevail and it has. The basic needs for all beings have been met, the UN Sustainable Development goals were delivered and then some… The spark of innovation, creativity and compassion continues to drive changes in our society, through community engagement, economic empowerment and personal growth… What started as a concept for a consortium approach to upgrade humanity from the top down was successful because we never wavered from delivering on our commitments, we were unfuckwithable, self assured, future focused and through continual learning we achieved our targets within just 3 short years. What started as a concept, developed into a business and eventually became a movement that drove humanity forward at a pace equal to technology. R. Buckminster Fuller was right, the relay race was touch-and-go and I’m eternally grateful for the wonderful humans who led the charge, reminded those around them of just how brilliant they were too and how collectively we helped make it to Utopia.

Love Always Ms Susanne

I’d also like to share with you my journal entry (one year from now) which is another way to put it out to the universe and start to manifest the reality you want to see in the world.

Journal Entry

Date: …..30/07/2020………….

I am so grateful for the last year. In the last year I have achieved so many of my goals, I feel energized by my environment as it inspires and supports me and my family; I am surrounded by positivity, love, abundance and success.  I am part of a community that values diversity, inclusion and empowerment.  I have an abundance of time for myself and those I love and there is an element of fun in everything we do. 

My personal cash flow has increased and now enables me to pursue travel, adventures and growth experiences that were just not possible a year ago… it all seemed so restrictive and precarious back then and at the same time I knew I had put myself in that situation so I could learn from it and develop the grit to leverage my value if ever the opportunity presents itself again. I’m so grateful I can also now speak to this and share my knowledge with others.

My personal wealth has tripled, and I am now actively engaged in projects that educate and drive humanity forward also this has enabled me to support and encourage other humanity and environment plus enterprises and start-ups.

I love myself unconditionally, I am enough, and I have achieved this through exposing myself to continual learning experiences, becoming the servant leader who attracts and works with such amazing individuals that support me in my life and growth.

My business has taken off in ways I never thought possible, the groundswell and support proves to me that humanity is heading in the right direction, there are enough conscious individuals on the planet that are driven to making changes in society through community engagement, economic empowerment and personal growth.

My customers are my tribe, as is my team, our partners and our suppliers – the whole ecology is symbiotic and self-perpetuating.  I have developed my relationships through affinity, communication, a shared reality and understanding.

I am healthy physically and mentally, nourishing and being kind to myself every day, my daily practices provide me with ongoing growth through experience of self and others because I am constantly in choice of my thoughts, words and actions.  This enables me to engage with, learn and see all the beauty this world has to offer.

I schedule regular adventures that I haven’t had before, some of them just everyday activities like walking down a different street to get to a known destination and because of my wealth I am able to share in my love of adventure, my abundance and success with those closest to me.  Throughout these adventures I actively contribute to the environment I am in so to support and promote engagement with the community, communicating with presence, intention and a desire to understand.

My net wealth is a direct result of my network and I have grown and support the community I am in, investing 10% of my wealth (time + money) to education, skills development and experiential based learning for all.

My next year is going to continue to be filled with the experiences, growth and contribution that speak to my heart and enable me to continue sharing my love with the world, my fellow human beings and the universe…

Even if I achieve only one tenth of what I am working towards [note: this shit doesn’t just happen by sitting in your room and ‘wishing’ or repeating it in some kind of affirmation] I will be very proud of myself because I’ve taken a step towards the future, my future, the one I envision and I want to manifest with all my heart and a burning passion that means I get up early; read absorb and implement; talk to, collaborate and engage with the kind of individuals who have been there and done it… [that’s the action bit you want to do if you actually want to make this shit happen]

I hope this has rattled your cage and awakened something in you to get down your own vision for the world.  Now this is the point at which you get to choose your next adventure… MOFO or Missed the G Spot or just as awesome would be if you share your thoughts – you can add them below or engage me direct susie@mssusanne.com.au

Sounds of Silence

What a way to wake up I tell you!

After 6 days of no talking to the 25+ women around me, which means only my internal dialogue to listen to, is it any wonder that my brain started to throw song tracks at me as another way of providing revelations or in other words (as Mike put’s it) distinctions about what was holding me back.

Yep that’s the one…   I woke to, I was Hooked On A Feeling and I was ‘high on believing that you’re in love with me’ – if you’ve read from Misery to Happiness, then you’ll know where I’m going with this… if not stick with me, you’ll get the gist.

Hooked on a Feeling

I literally woke up to this singing in my brain “Hooked On A Feeling” I had to laugh out loud (literally).  Given it was just over half way through the course I was fully immersed in the nuances of my mind and how it would flick from one thing to the next, how it showed me memories and started all these sensations in my body as a result of the emotions or feelings that I craved or in some cases had an aversion to.  This song was exceptionally apt to this distinction I was getting.

But low and behold this wasn’t the only song that my brain decided to confront me with this glorious morning.  So I’m heading up the pathway to the meditation hall, looking up at the starry sky, massive smile on my face from the mornings festivities in my brain already and voila, literally out of no where comes Heaven Must be There

Seriously… I couldn’t make this shit up if I tried!  I do love to have a laugh and although silence was the norm, I kept myself amused.  Which reminds me of an earlier situation, just a couple days into the course, lying on my bed in the ladies dorm resting on one of our breaks.  When one of the ladies in the bunk bed next to me, a look of distress on her face, with a frustrated posture and rushed step, she gets down off the bunk and heads for the door.  To which I think to myself “was it something I said”.

Time and again I found myself enthralled, observing how my mind works and as my practice was teaching me, seeking to remain equanimous.  As has I believe always been the case, a positive outlook on life provides the opportunity to be happy all the time #ThisIsOptimism.  In saying that I have suffered from depression and during that stage of my life I couldn’t find the light, a reason to be happy and I could barely bring myself to function.  In fact it took me a long time to get myself out of that black hole.  With the help of prescription drugs, counseling, hypnotherapy and the love and belief of my framily, I was able to make it back (18+ years ago now) but in reflection it wasn’t that there was nothing to be happy about that existed in my life, there was, I just couldn’t see it.  And that’s how our minds work if we don’t master them, the negative continues to feed and fuel our emotions, the sensations and feelings we experience.  Which may well be why I love the saying “you want to laugh, otherwise you’d cry” and I often use it when I do have challenges that come my way these days.  For me it comes down to gratitude.

Have you stopped to think lately – what am I grateful for?

This concept of gratitude was something my Dad taught me, he was a grumpy old man (most of the time) believing that the world had done him wrong.  He held grudges against those who wronged him, was bitter at his ‘less than’ lot in life and afraid that he couldn’t provide for his only daughter.  We received hampers at Christmas and I got to choose a toy from the Salvo’s who visited us, my second hand clothes and the stray pets I used to collect – all of these things remind me that I wasn’t a child being brought up in a 3rd world place like my mother’s country and I am forever grateful to my Dad for bringing me up in this lucky country #Australia.

I was listening to Bert Jacobs this morning and I couldn’t help but be inspired and grateful for the reminder.  He (and his brother) nailed it – Life isn’t Easy, Life isn’t Perfect but Life is Good!  I hope you are inspired to look into what’s positive in the world, what there is to be happy about in your life and maybe even how you can be brighter and bring light to others.

This is the point at which you get to choose your next adventure again, a trip from Misery to Happiness or into The Pain Barrier.  It would also be awesome if you could share with me your thoughts – you can add them below or engage me direct susie@mssusanne.com.au
