I’m looking at a particular situation that seems to face some lightworkers and doesn’t show up immediately for teams. But when it does show up, it quickly becomes a matter of importance and so I’ve resolved to see what can possibly be done to resolve it.
It lies in the area of communication. I admit that working on the world’s communicational problems shows up for me like work I have a deep and special connection to. I see workable communication as the sine qua non of every form of successful lightwork.
I know I could participate in projects designed to bring medicine to Africa or free-energy technology to the world. But I think there’s work that needs to be done before we take up these tasks. It’s my belief that, if a team does not have a sound basis for communicating successfully, the difficulties it encounters seem to multiply.
How to create a common acceptable way of communicating is not something I know about at the moment. My own communicational approach probably leaves a lot to be desired and certainly I don’t feel capable of assisting others in the area. I’m not really sure myself what absolutely works or how to present it to others if I knew. But I do know the work needs to be done to find an approach.
Let’s look at what can happen on a lightworker project when we don’t have a CCGB.
Everything is fine as long as no disagreement arises but, when something does arise, we can be in trouble. We may find we have few adequate ways of communicating through the difficulty. And the deeper the difficulty gets, the scarier the dialog can become.
Perhaps our response to it is to go away for a while and then return hoping that the difficulty has passed. Perhaps we give in to others. Perhaps we take the lead and impose an agreement.
Perhaps we paint a rosy picture and hope that everyone buys it. Perhaps we paint a dismal picture and hope everyone buys it. The ways we meet these difficult situations will vary but what we don’t do is we don’t necessarily or perhaps even often deal with the issue that arose in the first place – in and through communication.
We seem to be at different places generally with things communicationally. Some of us are positive thinkers. Some of us see only sweetness and light. Some of us are hiding things. Some are depressed.
Some of us are so deeply into a constructed self that they may not see what is artificial and what is real. Some are frustrated with not knowing who the other is in the matter. Some are afraid. On and on the combinations and permutations go.
We may find ourselves lurching from crisis to crisis, losing people along the way, and not providing a really strong and stable platform upon which to deliver our services as lightworkers.
Others may disagree with me. I’m not saying that I know what I say is true. I’m just following my gut on this one.
I invite the participation of any other communicational practitioners reading these pages. If you have an article you want to send me (through “Contact Us”) I’d be interested in receiving it. I’m not promising to post every article but they’ll certainly help me in my search to find a CCGB that works for lightworkers.
I’m determined to solve this problem: what is an adequate common communicational ground of being for lightworkers and how would it operate?
