How do you cultivate a positive group of people? #IYP ‘Longevity’
What is up beautiful people? It is me, it is yours truly the Rocky Balboa of this here question-answering game, and I guess you could say. Johnny B asked me a question today; I could not attend with him simply because I was on the road. Anybody familiar with Western Canada you know what it’s like coming back from the West Coast; this way to the east, construction out the wazzo, there was a blasting and accidents somewhere on the road, all slowing traffic down. So it is what it is. So I just pulled over and just enjoyed the sun on my face, so you got to be thankful for these little things.
His question of the day was for me, how do I cultivate or this is the way I took it, how do I cultivate a positive crew, a positive group of people around me instead of hanging with negative people?
The real answer is in the question, cultivate, cultivate, cultivate!
And I’ll answer this from an awareness standpoint. People who know me, know I have been in the Soto zen game for 10 years. I’ve been very fortunate to study under some very, very cool teachers from the Eastern philosophy centres and from over on that side of the world. So for a while, I’m going to be honest, It took about a 5-year type process but I did, I stopped hanging with a lot of people just due to energies not vibing and just not seeing light the same way.
So I became what would I say is a lone wolf for a while and now, I think when your energy vibrates at a certain level or way and you know your path, you know what they say that saying if you don’t stand for something you’re fall for anything.
I know what I stand for, I know what I look for, and I know what my time is worth. I know what I’m worth. I know who I want to roll with, so I choose to hang with certain people and that’s as simple as that gets.
Will I sit down with anybody? Of course, I’m not a snoot or a snob or whatever but when it comes to sharing my energy, my personal powers, my knowledge and just my fun vibes; if you’re a negative Nellie, then yeah, papa probably won’t be chilling with you it is that simple.
That is a very hard transition like I said, it took at the very least (for me) 5 years to understand that it was ok to do this, as there is a lot of baggage attached to hanging out with others.
Yeah its cultivation, it’s been and it will still be an evolution for me. But yeah I really do think energies attract. I don’t want to say opposites attract but energies attract, yeah and I vibe with real cool people now. People who help me, I can help them, people who know more of certain fields than I do and it’s just a coexistence. It’s a Ying and a yang, we help each other instead of you know, if you’ve been in the situations where, and I recently have been, those situations where somebody just tells you how bad the world is and then you’re trying to tell them how even worse it is than what they think and the vibes are weak, and continue on a downword spiral, and no one needs that!
That’s what I do brother. I hope I answered the question; it took a long time to get here, trust me it does not happen overnight for anybody. Even in business, the changing of my business, it took 4 or 5 years.
Again it’s baby steps and it’s awesome to be able to drop things. But it’s not a thing that happens overnight. If anybody ever tells you that, they are smoking something real good and I might want some.
Anyway, I hope you have a great day people. I know you could be anywhere in the world and you were right here with me, so I appreciate that. John talk to you tomorrow. Peace and I’m out.
