Below are some highlights:

#quote There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.” ~Henry David Thoreau

  • If you get your psychological needs met you grow automatically, like a plant, no choice.
  • If you keep getting your needs met you end up like Gandhi. People who become great are fundamentally just people who got their legitimate needs met; what a human looks like when functioning at capacity.
  • #quote “[We have never seen a fully grown person]” ~Thoreau (paraphrase)
  • People in prison got there because they weren’t getting their needs met and then one day they put their foot down in a misguided way trying to get them met.  Putting them in prison doesn’t help them get their needs met

“Integrity has to do with how integrated your psyche is” ~Josh #etym

  • Problem: Repression
    • Repression happens because if we were to connect with our most embarrassing memories we wouldn’t function, would shut down or lash out
    • physical neurons we could be using are bound up holding repressed memories.
  • Solution: Highly resourced state
    • List 10 situations in which you felt  proud, other positive emotions
    • Like your Facebook photo <> minimalist homepages vision, proud.of
    • Two figures example
    • Assign symbol, database lookup key to happy memories

“Your consciousness lightens with each step of healing… Until you are enlightened” ” ~Josh #etym

  • “I’ve lived and died several times since I last saw you because every day I’m practicing”
  • Your growth limiting step, the blockage to your growth might not be because lack of meditation but e.g. bad relationship (personal, business, etc.)
