At this point in our journey your worldview is the collection of your game rules about how things work and your relationship to them. It includes all of the self-validating labeling and judgments you’ve made about the poor innocent Universe, and the humans in it, and the society and culture you live in.
It’s the sum of your habitual conclusions, many of which you are not even aware of, but they operate in a way to give you a relatively coherent view of the world.
Why are they important?
Because they are your mental filters on this grand adventure called “life”, and in many cases your worldview will act as the invisible boundary on your thoughts and feelings, inhibiting you from taking action, or requiring that some particular behavior is carried out, even if from a strictly “actual requirements of the Universe” point of view… it isn’t really necessary.
Your worldview will be seem to be how the world is; how things are; what things REALLY are about; what THEY shouldn’t do; what you can’t do because…; etc. etc.
But worldviews can be changed and it’s easier than you might think. Most adults change their worldviews more than once, although some poor souls never do.
Now is the time to begin to take these prosperity awareness skills, and tracking skills, and questioning skills and start to focus them on taking down some of the false controllers in your mind and your life (but I do recommend developing more skills before bringing down governments, evil heretics who don’t think your way, or [other people’s] false idols). It starts like this:
You can work with any belief, conclusion, game rule, “truth”, data reported as being fact, etc. that you wish. Perhaps it would be wise to choose something that you believe is true about your relationship to the world that causes a challenge to you or is difficult.
We’re going to use a set of questions from Neuro-Linguistic Programming. There’s no “magic” in the questions themselves, what is important is that we will use the questions to get us started to think and think again about our conclusion, belief, worldview statement, etc.
For each question, write your statement of reality into the question, so that the question is directly about your concern.
Write both the question and the answer as you go.
How do you know that … [YOUR ISSUE]?
Who says that you’re … [YOUR ISSUE]?
Has anyone told you?
Where did you get that idea?
What would happen if you DID (or could)?
What stops you?
When is this ALWAYS the case?
When is this NEVER the case?
What would happen if you could do this, or it wasn’t an issue… what would you be doing differently?
What’s really stopping you or inhibiting you with this?
Go into more detail about his works… really spell out how this affects you specifically… Where? When? With whom? Under what circumstances?
Aside from “not having this as an issue”, what would you want to do, have, or be in relation to this matter? What would you want to be doing instead?
Now having answered the questions, change your first statement to take into account what you have discovered in considering and answering the questions.
What’s the difference between your first stamen and your new statement?
If there’s anything to do that’s good and beneficial, consider doing it…
