Most people are incapable of effective action, not because of a lack of talent, ability, or motivation. They are incapable of effective action because they live entirely in reaction to unresolved life events.
Improving the world and your quality of your life requires effective action, so I’m going to analyze and break down what effective action is, and how evolution occurs during the unraveling of personal patterns, and how my original approach supports this.
Before effective action can be taken, information must be gathered, so that a far-reaching strategy can be formulated. The most important information arises out of stillness, or ‘not doing.’ In this way, ‘not doing’ becomes an integral component of directed, effective action.
Examples of action in terms of re-action abound. One example is attempting to make money because you were poor in the past. This is not the purest state of wealth creation, because it is essentially a reaction to poverty (a state which has probably long sense passed). There are other components that may figure in, such as living differently from the father figure, or seeking redemption on his behalf.
Muscling through these types of patterns via non-effective action, against the gravity of the situation, I call ‘forced action’. It can ‘get things done’, however there are drawbacks. It is less efficient energetically, because there is a lot of friction, as the gears of unresolved events and unreconcilable unconscious beliefs grind against one another. Only a fraction of the energy you are investing actually makes its way into the project. The rest is lost. Spending energy in this way is not sustainable, and illness or failure inevitably follow. This is why building wealth at the expense of vitality is us not sustainable, and therefore cannot be considered success, regardless of qualitative measures.
Forced action is diluted action. The multiplicity of objectives are illogical, and often at odds with one another. As an example, I desire more money to compensate for childhood poverty patterns. I also want to deepen my relationship with my father, and abandoning his poverty mentality and anger at economic systems, which we’ve bonded over in the past, via conversations and rants, may distance us. So I try to keep a foot in both pools. A ‘cleaner’ motive (arising out of the core) increases the efficacy of action (sometimes by redirecting the energy entirely to something more aligned). In this case, making money to fulfill your personal vision for you self, to enhance your evolution, support your family, etc.
Another consideration, perhaps the most important, is the fulfillment (or lack of fulfillment) that follows action. Somewhere along the line of translating intention into reality, we need to discern exactly where the intention comes from, and whether it is from a clean source. Otherwise, we are not creating OUR reality: we are either pushing against a reality we don’t believe in (intuitively or programmed), or creating the reality that we think someone else may approve of (a parent or mentor, for instance).
Effective action in the direction of our vision is ultimately more fulfilling, as the vision manifests, because the intention was aligned, so the result is pleasing to witness. It is less fulfilling to look out on our creation and to realize it was not our intention at all, but the adopted intention of another individual or a even a culture. We come out weary, for having ‘pushed so hard’ against the thing we were against.
What is the solution?
Resolving the past, and completing the incomplete loops is foundational in powerful creative cycles. I have found that the most effective way to discover and complete these loops is through precise, physical touch, guided by intuition and powerful questions. A once skeptical client recently called my approach a ‘panacea’ that positively impacted every area of her life; creativity, career clarity, relation to husband and children, clarity of communication.
An example of an Effective Creation Cycle
- Phase 1. - Seed (Non-linear. May come in the form of inspiration, or intention to support oneself or another)
- Phase 2. - Information gathering from 2 sources. Unconscious and Conscious sources. The unconscious gathering comes from ‘not doing’.
- Phase 3. - Strategizing (including analysis if the seed and resources, to see if implementation aligns with core values).
- Phase 4. - Effective Action, energy efficient and focused, so that minimal effort is needed to impact the strategy. Dandelion spore metaphor comes in useful.
- Phase 5. Calibration to adjust tactics to Increase effectiveness. or adjust strategy.
- Loops back to prior phases, or a new seed.
Where does the Budden strategy fit in?
The Budden Strategy, this sweeping out of residual energy linked to unresolved past events, involves the foray into pure subjectivity, and the personal witnessing of the constellations of systems, sensations, and stories that are making up the current moment. What is incomplete is discovered, through touch, and completed, through verbal and emotional processing. This process clears the way for greater objectivity along the cycle of creation. Every phase along the cycle of creation is dramatically amplified, by the improved ability to direct and efficiently use energy.
In other words, when we touch on a point on the body, and process whatever memory or emotion arises, it clears the channel, brings what was unconscious to consciousness (enlightenment). In the wake of these clearings, life changes, because what is between you and your essence falls away. You are no longer living entirely in reaction to anger about a past slight; you are living for your true purpose.
