Your dead + lifeless stories are killing you.
And they are killing your business.
They are killing your employees.
They are killing your family.
Your stories are killing you even if your story about your stories is that you don’t have any stories. That story also is killing you.
Most people don’t even know what stories they have.
That’s called a story of denial.
Stories are spells. Stories create worlds. And powerful stories destroy worlds energetically.
Stories are s-e-x.
That’s why a bad story is really fucking bad.
And a good story is really fucking good.
Like any medicine, stories can be heating or cooling.
Stories can be toxic or nutritious.
Stories can be wild or lifeless.
Stories are energy codes condensed into a compact space.
A one paragraph story could be explained and expanded through volumes and volumes of books, and there’s really no end to it.
The point of a story can never be sufficiently made through an explanation of the story, just like a joke.
You either get it or you don’t. And if you don’t get it, an explanation of the joke doesn’t fix the experience of the joke for you.
The experience of it is IT.
An explanation is not an experience.
Therefore when you demand an explanation of something, sure it can be helpful to lubricate the gears for future experiences, but it’s never going to replace the experience itself.
The degree to which you are willing or unwilling to truly participate in an experience predicts the depth of explanation you will later demand.
If you are accustomed to having that demand met there, this enables you to be accustomed to avoid truly participating in experiences.
In this way, you create a pattern of how you engage in stories, day in and day out.
And this pattern is what you refer to as “me” or “I”.
Therefore, me or I is just a meta-story containing all of your other lifeless folders of stories.
It’s an addictive way to catalog and compartmentalize all of the various happenings in your life, simply because it appears that if the meta story is threatened then some serious consequence may occur.
And that’s true, but what’s not so obvious is that that serious consequence is that you’ll be getting access to your true self and have the opportunity to actually live your damn life.
