My personal consulting services: creative solutions

by Jon Rappoport

April 14, 2017

I’ve worked with a number of private clients over the years. It’s been inspiring to see them find buried dreams and visions and pour energy into their fulfillment.

When I use the term “creative solutions,” I mean solutions to life itself. Because life wants to create. Creating is, to the spirit, what breathing is to the body.

Consulting has also given me the opportunity to see the uniqueness of every individual. I don’t apply a one-size-fits-all system or protocol. It’s the uniqueness that is the source of energy and vision.

When you come right down to it, every person on the planet is different. Systems and organizations don’t recognize that.

If we want to look at a root reason for the troubles that societies and civilizations encounter, there it is. Structures are put in place to produce sameness. Sameness of thought, response, and action. Whereas, the truth is, every person has his/her own take on reality. It is that personal point of view which gives birth to creative solutions.

My work with private clients has reinforced and expanded that notion. Discovering someone else’s point of view is invigorating, especially when it is backed up by their desire to make something, do something, create something in the world.

There is no reason to try to impose a synthetic and artificial point of view on another person. He/she already has, at some level, a perspective that is dynamic, even if, at present, it only exists in potential form.

Covered up by layers of sameness, this is what the world is. The world is composed of individuals, every one of whom would grasp his/her dreams and visions and work to make them come true, if given the chance.

For some, grasping the unique vision immediately results in action. For others, pulling the trigger on action is the challenge. But in either case, the opportunity is there.

The great social and political struggles of history aimed at setting the stage for this opportunity. For each individual.

When people talk about “the good life,” this is what they mean or should mean. The chance to launch creative solutions to living—because living is the prelude to inventing the future. That’s what living is for.

I write this article a few days after one of my long-term clients has just published her third book. When we began, she had perhaps an inkling she wanted to be a writer. Nothing more. Over time, that changed. And eventually, she started putting words to paper and discovered she had the ability and the wherewithal. And the desire. And the vision.

Who would have thought it possible? She did. Not every hour of every day, but enough hours and days to write three books.

I salute her. I know, from experience, that every person has his/her own “books of the future,” whatever the enterprise, arena, endeavor.

And that knowledge is an inspiration.

Spirit and soul are restless. Because they want something new, something large. They want to launch.

It’s as natural as breathing.

    Excellent reminder not to allow the ‘glue’ in ones life set. Make something of it – or at least – keep trying to.

    Excerpt from “Tropic of Capricorn” by Henry Miller

    It was at Far Rockaway where this took place. After we had dressed and
    eaten a meal I suddenly decided that I wanted to be alone and so, very
    abruptly, at the comer of a street. I shook hands and said good-bye. And
    there I was! Almost instantaneously I felt alone in the world, alone as one
    feels only in moments of extreme anguish. I think I was picking my teeth
    absentmindedly when this wave of loneliness hit me full on, like a tornado.
    I stood there on the street comer and sort of felt myself all over to see if
    I had been hit by something. It was inexplicable, and at the same time it
    was very wonderful, very exhilarating, like a double tonic, I might say.
    When I say that I was at Far Rockaway I mean that I was standing at the end
    of the earth, at a place called Xanthos, if there be such a place, and
    surely there ought to be a word like this to express no place at all. If
    Rita had come along then I don’t think I would have recognized her. I had
    become an absolute stranger standing in the very midst of my own people.
    They looked crazy to me, my people, with their newly sunbumed faces and
    their flannel trousers and their dock-work stockings. They had been bathing
    like myself because it was a pleasant, healthy recreation and now like
    myself they were full of sun and food and a little heavy with fatigue. Up
    until this loneliness hit me I too was a bit weary, but suddenly, standing
    there completely shut off from the world, I woke up with a start I became so
    electrified that I didn’t dare move for fear I would charge like a bull or
    start to climb the wall of a building or else dance and scream. Suddenly I
    realized that all this was because I was really a brother to Dostoievski,
    that perhaps I was the only man in all America who knew what he meant in
    writing those books. Not only that, but I felt all the books I would one day
    write myself germinating inside me: they were bursting inside like ripe
    cocoons. And since up to this time I had written nothing but fiendishly long
    letters about everything and nothing, it was difficult for me to realize
    that there must come a time when I should begin, when I should put down the
    first word, the first-real word. And this time was now! That was what dawned
    on me.

    I used the word Xanthos a moment ago. I don’t know whether there is a
    Xanthos or not, and I really don’t care one way or another, but there must
    be a place in the world, perhaps in the Grecian islands, where you come to
    the end of the known world and you are thoroughly alone and yet you are not
    frightened of it but rejoice, because at this dropping off place you can
    feel the old ancestral world which is eternally young and new and
    fecundating. You stand there, wherever the place is, like a newly hatched
    chick beside its eggshell. This place is Xanthos, or as it happened in my
    case. Far Rockaway.

    There I was! It grew dark, a wind came up, the streets became deserted,
    and finally it began to pour cats and dogs. Jesus, that finished me! When
    the rain came down, and I got it smack in the face staring at the sky, I
    suddenly began to bellow with joy. I laughed and laughed and laughed,
    exactly like an insane man. Nor did I know what I was laughing about. I
    wasn’t thinking of a thing. I was just overwhelmed with joy, just crazy with
    delight in finding myself absolutely alone. If then and there a nice juicy
    quim had been handed me on a platter, if all the quims in the world had been
    afforded me for to make my choice, I wouldn’t have batted an eyelash. I had
    what no quim could give me. And just about at that point, thoroughly
    drenched but still exultant, I thought of the most irrelevant thing in the
    world – carfare! Jesus, the bastard Maxie had walked off without leaving me
    a sou. There I was with my fine budding antique world and not a penny in my
    jeans. Herr Dostoievski Junior had now to begin to walk here and there
    peering into friendly and un-friendly faces to see if he could pry loose a
    dime. He walked from one end of Far Rockaway to the other but nobody seemed
    to give a fuck about handing out carfare in the rain. Walking about in that
    heavy animal stupor which comes with begging I got to thinking of Maxie the
    window-trimmer and how the first time I spied him he was standing in the
    show-window dressing a mannikin. And from that in a few minutes to
    Dostoievski, then the world stopped dead, and then, like a great rose bush
    opening in the night, his sister Rita’s warm, velvety flesh.

    How could you help me figure out how to “create?”  I want to write, but don’t know how or where to begin (I have a great “story” to tell, though write like drew barrymore! not that that is bad, per se).   Suffice to say, what do you charge?  Cara

        Theodore, what a treat to read an excerpt of Henry Miller’s ” . . . Capricorn”. I’ve long admired Miller’s abilities with the pen.

        With regard to writing, CARA, I think that the most important thing is to relax and not let that blank page intimidate you. Moreover, you never want to try to appear erudite. Use ‘big’ words sparingly, especially when you’re just starting out. The cardinal rule in writing, of course, is: ‘writing is re-writing.’ Almost everyone has a gem of a story to tell, but making Jill an Jack Reader want to read it means telling it in the most natural voice you can muster. So go over it and over it and over it till you’re sick of your own stuff. Yeah, I got published. A couple of short stories, in a lit-mag. I also optioned a screenplay.

        Oh, something else: never think your sh– doesn’t stink. When it needs editing, go in like the mad slasher. In my novel, I deleted an entire chapter, except for the first paragraph. You get so it doesn’t even bother you to do this, even though you’ve labored long and hard in writing it.

        God bless you and in the words of screenwriter William Goldman, ‘may all your hurts be little ones.’ The writing game is a bitch, but it’s oh-so-rewarding to the soul.
