I acknowledge this picture from the Net.
I also apologize if i convey the impression that the ape is non-human. I truly believe they are better than human.
Be real, Be human, says Thomas Leonard in his twenty-seventh and final principle.
In one of the final chapters of the Vedic scripture Bhagavad Gita, Krishna, God Incarnate, describes to his human alter ego Arjuna, the finer aspects of humanity.
This chapter is titled Yoga of Divine and Demonic qualities.
Every human is divine in part and demonic in part. Krishna explains the difference very simply. He says that when we look at ourselves and the world from our own perspective, that of I, the ego, we are demonic. When we switch ur perspective to the other, that of you, with concern and care about growth and contribution to others, we become divine.
It is actually that simple.
One doesn’t have to run through all 750 verses of the Gita, or all books of the Bible and other scriptures of other religions to understand what divinity is about. The essence of this chapter says it all. Move from I to You and you become divine.
We are all caught in the yin yang of Tao. Within our divine Self lies a demon, and within the demon we are gods. How do you move within to the god? Just focus on the other.
This is the essence of all coaching. Anyone who takes up coaching for any other reasons has lost it all. Coaching must stem from the deep desire to be value to others, by placing them above us. One who succeeds in this, succeeds in coaching well.
In an Anthony Robbins video, i heard him talk about the psychological needs of people as security, variety, attention need, growth and contribution. The fist four attributes are usually focused on the I or Me. The last is all about You.
When we can get past our security needs, variety needs, attention needs and growth needs, we reach the Maslow hierarchy of Self-actualization, what Robbins called the contribution space. Krishna called this the divine Self.
It’s so easy to be divine. be a coach and focus on the client!
