  • Don't lie to your soul!

    Article cover image

    Have you ever noticed how children see right through adults? And, have you noticed how adults don't like that, and then try to shut the kids down?

    We are born with something in our soul that is uniquely perceptive, and that sees through people's pretenses. Unfortunately, we assign this to the "We are growing up" department. By implication, some things are not nice, and should be left behind. After all, who could bear the burden of their child announcing in public; "My mommy (or daddy) is lying to you!" Nope! That just would not work!

    Fortunately, we have a solution, which is to tell the kid to shut up! In the process, we start to smother the child's connection with the soul's ability to detect truth, and embrace it as the right thing to do. The result, is that we are trained, (by those who 'love' us), to leave the best of ourselves behind. That is our loss.

    It is to our loss, because it has wider implications. When we push our soul aside, we also push its benefits aside, because they come packaged together. When we push the truth that the soul has for us, aside - we also push its ability to perceive truth aside. The two are inseparable. When we sacrifice one, we sublimate the other. We become soul-impoverished.

    What we fail to recognize, is that the soul also has enormous potential. For example it has incredible intelligence; but, this too is lost, because it is also part of the soul's package. It is a part of the package that most people have lost forever.

    A Soulthentic person strives to reconnect with who we are, and what we are called to be. It is about living in a way that we are true to one's soul. Then, when we look in the mirror, we can actually like who we are, because who we are, is who we are meant to be - no conflict, and no dissonance. It is a great way to live!

    This is one reason why we should never lie to our soul.

  • A List of Reasons to not Trust Lists

    Article cover image

    I have been to many conferences, training sessions, and online meetings, where one to many lists have been presented, as if there is some magic in the lists.

    It is as if the presenter uses the list to add credibility to his or her message. "Look! Here is a list. That means I must be an authority - right!" "I have a list, therefore what I am telling you must be true!"

    Likewise, a common way of presenting a topic on leadership is to structure the presentation as a list. For example, a post may be headlined:

    • "10 mistakes leaders make when getting out of bed!"
    • "3 reasons to never make your boss mad at you!"
    • "100 ways to make a million!"
    • And so on...

    The point is simple; we like lists, but lists are not the ultimate truth. In fact lists can be detrimental to our discernment and intelligence, because they presume a completeness, that is seldom there. Many lists are assumptive in nature, which offers us an easy way out of actually having to think (a little deeper than we would like to.)

    So let us be fair. There is a real value in lists that help to focus and clarify. Lists can make complex situations easier to understand. Lists do help us remember what we need to achieve.

    The point that I am making here, is that a lot of fluff achieves authority status with the help of an attached list. We should learn to discern the difference.

    Now let me make a list of the above points.....
