Your personal ambition: locked up or wide open?

Your personal ambition: locked up or wide open?

For centuries, the word “ambition” has been injected and stained with negative connotations: greed, selfishness, lowness of character.

These days, it’s because the current fashion (backed up by enormous propaganda) is: “give everything away for free to everybody else.”

Of course, no one actually does that. But it doesn’t stop people from espousing the idea. It plays well. It’s a badge of honor. The implication is: no matter who they are, no matter what they ask for, other people are more important than Self.

Where does this the leave the individual?

He’s the exception to the rule. If he’s sitting with the wrong people and somehow, accidentally, transmits the impression that he’s happy to be succeeding at doing what he really wants to do, there could be blowback.

He’s “ambitious.”

He wants to “achieve something on his own.”

He must be from another planet.

The rule is: everything must be done out of a sense of Giving Service. As in a bland and pallid church. Bring out the hymnals.

If “success” is mentioned at all, it should be couched in “spiritual” terms. Devotion to all of humanity all the time. Saving the entire planet, at a bare minimum. And before breakfast, if possible.

We hear, “I’m blessed to be doing (fill in the blank). Really? Who provided the blessing? Was there a ceremony? Wine? Crackers?

“I’m giving back.” Back? Say again? Did you just get back from somewhere? A conference in a higher realm, where you were tasked to perform great actions here, minus any shred of self-interest?

Ambition? At best, a useless appendage from a bygone age, when people were self-absorbed and confused, when they, as individuals, were deluded into thinking they were building something on their own.

Didn’t you get the memo? We’re all in this together. And don’t commit the faux pas of asking who the “we” is and what the “this” is and how “all together” actually works.

Ambition? “The Universe” must place it in a very low position on the scale of righteousness.

A private client of mine once completely broke up during one of our conversations. When he stopped laughing and calmed down, he told me he realized how he’d been keeping himself in check because, whenever he tried to think about his personal ambitions, he was blocked. He wasn’t supposed to be ambitious. He wasn’t supposed to think about his future in terms of his own ambition. He wasn’t supposed to be who he was. He wasn’t supposed to pour all his energy into making his own desires come true. That was treasonous. That was betraying “everybody else.” That was…

Blasphemy.

But he’d suddenly recovered from the prison sentence. He’d come back. He’d broken out of the chains. He’d started breathing again.

No, this wasn’t a greedy man who then connived ways to dupe others for his own gain. This wasn’t a criminal who then began to plan cons and scams. This wasn’t a tyrant coming out of his cave.

This was a very creative man who could suddenly see a new future stirring; a future that would get him out of bed in the morning with energy and excitement.

A problem?

No. Not at all.

He was on his way.

I’ve had clients who authentically decided they wanted to form groups to forward crucial causes. THAT was their ambition.

Over and over in my consulting practice, it’s been driven home to me that the individual makes these discoveries and decisions for himself—and when he does, he has the energy to launch.

“I should do this” and “I’m best fitted to do this” don’t hold a candle to “I WANT TO do this,” when the want is deep.

Ambition and Want are actually close cousins, when you sweep away the social debris and the propaganda.

I have a bias in favor of the individual. I always have. When all is said and done, the individual is the root. Yes, there is a thing called team or group or organization, but today’s culture has vastly overvalued “cooperative enterprise,” at the expense of the creative person.

That person understands something which evades the prescriptions of the culture. He knows he is operating at a different level. He feels, glimpses, senses a power that doesn’t belong to the group. It never has, and it never will.

This fact is a cause for celebration, even if most people don’t grasp the importance of it or recognize that, in numerous ways, they are benefiting from the creative output of individuals who don’t give up, who launch enterprises that travel far beyond conventional boundaries.

Here is a famous quote attributed to Victor Hugo: “Nothing is stronger than an idea whose time has come.”

That formulation is weak and passive. I would say: Nothing is stronger than the creative individual who launches a new idea, gives it shape, and makes it fact in the world.

There are many more such individuals than we would suspect. They are standing in the shadows, wondering whether they should give expression to their ambitions.

The answer is yes.

My personal consulting services, part 3: pessimism vs. hope

My personal consulting services, Part 3: pessimism vs. hope

The web of pessimism and the hope for the future

by Jon Rappoport

May 16, 2017

(contact email: qjrconsulting [at] gmail [dot] com)

“In my work with private clients, certain questions inevitably arise. The questions involve freedom and desire. ‘What is my freedom for?’ ‘What do I want to do with my freedom?’ ‘What do I want to create?’ In whatever form they occur, these are good questions. They lead to new futures.” (The Magician Awakes, Jon Rappoport)

In my private consulting practice, I work with individuals who are:

Searching to discover the most profound version of their future they want;

Or already knowing that, they are on the fence about pursuing such a future;

Or already engaged in inventing that future, they are looking for the best plan to arrive at fulfillment of that future.

—Is the general energy of people rising or falling these days? Is it up or down? Are people more pessimistic than they were yesterday or six months ago?

During my 79 years, I’ve learned a few rock-bottom things about having a life.

One is, the world is increasing arranged so that, once you enter the collective, your fortunes tend to rise and fall based on factors you have nothing to do with. And the collective is a fiction that purports to connect “everything to everything.” The big lie.

People are taught that the country, the planet, the universe is a collective web. You enter at any point, you’re involved. You’re hooked in. Therefore, the overall health and energy of the collective determines your overall health and energy.

And then the self-appointed moralists come in and say, “And this is the way it should be.”

Welcome to psychological and spiritual collectivism.

It’s a ruse.

Your sense of optimism or pessimism is actually based on factors that have far more to do with you than with the (supposed) overall status of the collective.

This is a good thing.

This means you can exercise choice. You can make decisions. You can go in this direction or that direction.

You can affect your own emotions.

Whether today’s hero of the moment rises or falls doesn’t determine your state of mind.

I speak to, and write for, people who aren’t comfortable in the collective. I write for people who stand outside the collective and know it. I write for people who refuse to base their decisions and emotional responses on “everything around them.” I write for people who don’t follow that path.

I know such people are out there. I salute them. I write for them. I address myself to them. Some of them are my clients.

I write for people, for individuals who know they have power, who know they can chart a course that involves their own creative power. I write for people who, sitting on the fence, suspect they can get off the fence and, through imagination, conceive of new lives, better lives, no matter what the collective is doing.

The collective only exists because people buy the delusion that, by passing essentially borrowed cultural messages from hand to hand, “humanity” will rise. This is accomplished, first and foremost, by negating Self.

There is no reason to negate Self.

What do I want? What do I want to do with my freedom? What do I want to create? There is no way to avoid asking those questions. They are eternal.

So why not ask and answer them now?

The term “human potential” has been misused and distorted in a number of ways. First of all, it should be “individual potential.” And it refers to the as yet untapped capacity to invent the future, according to one’s own deep desires.

To say this is a kind of magic is a vast understatement, because when a person does begin inventing that future, things change.

Circumstances change.

Emotions change.

Thoughts change.

The responses of the body change.

Eventually, people show up who want to make a contribution to that developing future.

None of this has anything to do with the collective.

Which is exactly as it should be.

There are ancient spiritual traditions on Earth—IF YOU STRIP AWAY THEIR METAPHYSICAL CLAP-TRAP DESIGNED TO ENSNARE PEOPLE—that suggest individuals creating their own futures is an essential core of life.

But the whole point is Now. Individuals creating their best futures Now.

This is a physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, creative undertaking.

My consulting services: writers and entrepreneurs

My consulting services: writers and entrepreneurs

by Jon Rappoport

May 10, 2017

(contact email: qjrconsulting [at] gmail [dot] com)

Over the years, I’ve had a number of writers and entrepreneurs as private clients.

The entrepreneurs have a specific enterprise in progress; or in mind; or they’re working on conceptualizing it.

The writers are launched on a project, stalled on a project, or trying to conceive of a project. In a few cases, they’re “first-time writers.”

There is no one-size-fits-all system for consulting with clients. Each individual is unique. That’s what makes the work so interesting.

A creative solution to a problem always refers back to a latent capacity of the individual. A capacity that is not being fully expressed.

In a variety of ways, the individual has “learned” to see his own future as circumscribed by limits. Therefore, his talent and energy are, to one degree or another, held in check:

“The road isn’t wide and it isn’t very long, it’s rather narrow and short.”

On that basis, he feels hemmed in. He is trying to adapt, rather than create.

Reversing that trend does not happen according to a formula. Formulas are the reason a person found himself in a bind in the first place.

My work involves seeing and understanding what the client sees and understands…and then helping him move to a more expansive “operating basis.”

Expansive in thought, and expansive in action.

The culture of a society takes pride in defining boundaries and limits. That’s the way of civilization. So be it. But the individual is different. At some level of his consciousness, he is looking for a way out, because he knows his ambitions are primarily aimed at something “wider and higher and deeper.”

That is where he would find fulfillment.

Society, civilization, education, or training do not provide that answer for him.

He does.

And that is a good thing, a very good thing. An exciting thing.

In my work, I do my best to help the individual attain answers for himself…because then he is motivated and energized to move out from his own center and create whatever he truly desires.

This is power in the truest sense of the word.

My personal consulting services: creative solutions

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.

The entrepreneur/visionary and his challenges

The entrepreneur/visionary and his challenges

by Jon Rappoport

November 15, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

This article isn’t about tax rates and government red tape and intrusive regulations. Those issues are, of course, very real.

This is about the person who has large dreams and ambitions, and has launched them, or is on the cusp of launching them. He appears to be a dying breed in this society, but he is not. Under the surface, out of the limelight, there are many, many such people. I have worked with some of them in my consulting practice, and I admire them. They have escaped from the dependency culture. They have energy, and they move forward. They don’t set gross limits on themselves. They understand the founding ideas on which this country was built.

On one level, the share the trait of resistance. They don’t back down and opt for safe and easy solutions. They don’t bow down to the system or prevailing trends. They don’t obsessively look for excuses. Wearing a nicey-nice mask isn’t their main goal.

They deal with challenges. One, of course, is building something from the ground up. Another is building a vision into the world without scaling it back so far that it loses its unique scope, size, and power.

Entrepreneurship has a counter-intuitive core. The more the enterprise is built to the scale of the original dream, and the less it is compromised, the greater the chances of success.

This is something most people can’t fathom. They see compromise as the ultimate instrument. They deploy it whenever they can. They strive to become experts in its use. They see invention and creation as entirely dependent on the public’s “lowest common denominator.” This, to them, is the way reality works.

And on one level, they’re right. But this isn’t the level of the person with a vision. How thrilling the enterprise becomes when it is built to be everything it was meant to be—and when, lo and behold, people respond—as if they’ve been waiting for it, for a long time. Then the entrepreneur/visionary realizes how reality CAN operate. It’s a revelation. He experiences it.


Exit From the Matrix


The entrepreneur needs to inspire the people he works with. Committing to his own vision through thick and thin, he has to keep it fresh and new. Even if, at times, he feels as if he’s rolling a huge stone up a hill, he can’t let the vision merge with that stone. He has to keep the vision pure. His ace in the hole is he WANTS to keep it new and pure. His final challenge is avoiding becoming rigid as he keeps the vision secure. He has to pour an elastic and far-reaching energy into his work. He has to be able to be spontaneous—there are many times when improvisation in the moment is his best ally.

If all this seems too much—it isn’t. Deep down, the entrepreneur knows it. He is tapping into a well that is bottomless. He comes to understand this secret. There are no limits.

His imagination and creative power have no boundaries.

The entrepreneur can cross a threshold and find that his work and goals have expanded to such a degree that he has become a true visionary. What he once thought was the end of his ambition was just a stepping stone, and the path he is now walking has no end.

No end.

—Always beginning.

The architect and engineer of his dream, he can simultaneously look at what he has built so far and appreciate it, and he can also see that he is, at the start of every day, inventing anew. He is, simultaneously, a thousand miles along his path, and immersed in a great Now.

The law of attraction: garbled fragment of a lost tradition

The law of attraction: garbled fragment of a lost tradition

by Jon Rappoport

November 13, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

There is no way to state the law of attraction with finality, because thousands of people have tinkered with it, and some of them earnestly believe they have the only “true” version.

I’ll present several of the more popular descriptions first, and then comment.

“The law of attraction is the name given to the maxim ‘like attracts like’ which in New Thought philosophy is used to sum up the idea that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life…” (Wikipedia)

“The Law of Attraction is no scary science or heavy philosophy – it is all about turning good intentions into positive action. It really is as simple as that. Simple exercises like filling your thoughts, words and energies with positivity and possibility, knowing exactly what it is that you want and then simply ‘allowing’ the universe to flow.” (thelawofattraction.com)

“Someone has said, ‘the Universe has imagined it even better than you have.’ And we like to add to that: The Universe got all of its information about what you like from you, and it has remembered every piece of it and has put it together in perfect formation. And so, the things that are on their way to you are so much better than you even know that you want. And as you allow them, the essence all of these things that the Universe knows that you are wanting make their way to you and appear in perfect timing for you.” (abraham-hicks.com)

The first thing to notice about these formulations is that they have a major passive component. You’re just there, thinking good thoughts, and the universe delivers its gifts to you. Hello! Incoming! And the second thing to notice is how the universe itself is characterized. It isn’t planets, stars, and galaxies. It’s a mystic “everything” that is paying close attention to you. It’s an outside force that is ready and willing to pass along positive results in exchange for positive thoughts.

It’s no surprise that the law of attraction has flourished in modern America. The law, in its own strange way, is a marvel of optimism. “No need to worry, all you need to do is accentuate the positive in your thoughts, and good things will descend upon you.”

There is even a more “sophisticated” version of the law, whereby, if you think-positive and don’t receive what you want, you didn’t really want it. That is, your higher self didn’t want it. Therefore, disappointment and failure aren’t possible.

The law is also an expression of a severely declining culture, in which large numbers of people, living in a superficial land of plenty, just can’t seem to be happy. They’re not getting what they want. The presents under the Xmas tree aren’t the right presents. The dreams they’re dreaming aren’t coming true. Therefore: build a better Santa Claus. Call him Universe.

The law of attraction also has a dark side: don’t entertain negative thoughts or negative things will happen to you. This may as well be an overt piece of mind control, because…who can avoid a trickle or a stream of negative thoughts? The individual is being set up. “Be a cop. Monitor yourself. Be your own Surveillance State. Keep those negative thoughts away. Don’t think of a pink elephant driving a truck on the sidewalk as you step out a café…”

The law of attraction: it’s as if someone read an ancient torn manuscript, tried to reconstruct a valuable piece of information, and missed the mark by a few miles. He got it all wrong. He got it backwards. Everything he could get wrong he did get wrong.

Why do I say that?

First of all, re the law of attraction, we’re talking about “positive and negative thought” at a level of power that is weak, weak, weak. We’re talking about an inconsequential level of thinking. We’re also talking about thought that is divorced from action. The individual is characterized as if he were a radio antenna, a receiving apparatus. Thoughts are coming in, good ones and bad ones. His job is to filter out the bad ones and strive to accentuate the good ones. This is preposterous. This is a losing proposition.

In ancient Tibet, before the priest class took over and established a theocracy, the practitioners of the art of manifestation were operating at a truly profound level of creation. If someone had come up with the law of attraction, he would have been encouraged to see it and invent it with all the sustained intensity he possibly could—and then, when he had it before him with alive and electric force, he would have been told: get rid of it.

The whole notion of Tibetan magic was: creation and destruction.

Through long-term grounding in this practice, the student would eventually come to see, first-hand, that he could invent anything and also dispense with it. Now we’re talking about power.

Not the inconsequential static of “positive and negative thoughts.” Not the little amateur radio station. Instead, the Niagara, initiated by the student and gotten rid of by the student.

“You’re in love with the idea of a beneficent universe that delivers all good things? All right, create that universe with all the energy you can muster. Spend months creating it. And then, when you’re quite sure you’ve got that marvelous invention, and it’s going to hand down to you everything you want, get rid of your invention. You see? You’re the artist of reality. You invent it. You can invent whatever you want, and you can destroy it, too. You’re the painter with an infinite canvas. You can fill it up with anything you want—and you can also paint over it and erase it out of existence. And there’s no need to feel sad about it, because you KNOW you can create endlessly. You’re living in a sea of abundance, not because the universe is mandating it, not because any entity or force or field or personage is mandating it or allowing it, but because YOU are the beginning and end of the abundance.”

The Tibetans weren’t fooling around. They weren’t taking a stroll through a mall. They weren’t pining over some fervently wished for relationship that never was. They weren’t cooking up some little religion with rainbows and marshmallows. They weren’t a terminally sentimental culture. They weren’t living and dying by dreams of abject hope. They weren’t inventing some good guy at the center of universe who comes down the chimney every night to deliver presents.

For that twisted version of the truth to flourish, there had to be a culture that was seeming to produce a consumer paradise. A place where every toy and machine and frizzle and frazzle on shelves of plenty were within arm’s reach—and still the people were unhappy. Then, the people would imagine that a higher St. Nick was available by merely “thinking good thoughts.” Then, people would believe this St. Nick was “giving them permission” to be happy.

Re the law of attraction, those early Tibetans would say: “Are you really worried about thinking a negative thought? All right, take one of those negative thoughts and invent it sky-high. Go to the quarry and cut out a two-ton block of granite and have some horses drag it back home and spend a few months engraving that negative thought on the stone and put lights on it and hold a week-long boggling celebration—and then blow up the stone. Do this whole process many times as you need to, until you realize you can invent anything and then get rid of it. Until you realize you’re an artist of reality and you’re infinitely more powerful than some weak sister of a ‘negative thought’.

An artist of reality puts together a vision of something he deeply, deeply, deeply desires, and then he strides out and brings it into being in the world. Because he wants to. Because he’ll walk through whatever he has to walk through to bring it to fruition. And that’s “the law of attraction.” It’s not a law and it isn’t attraction. It’s art. It’s creation. It’s invention. Nothing is “allowing it to happen.”

The individual, as an artist of reality, can go anywhere and access anything: he can tap into fields of data, oceans of being, other people’s minds, this consciousness and that consciousness, this role and that role; he can merge and un-merge—or he can do none of that. He can invent power out of nothing. He can, as artists have since the dawn of time, experience the joy and ecstasy of bringing to life his greatest dreams. He can invent and choose those dreams. And he can also, if he wants to, put all that on the shelf, and just walk down the street in the rain and hold a newspaper over his head and hail a cab and ride to a restaurant and have a drink and eat a meal with a friend and talk about the horse who won the fifth race at Del Mar.


exit from the matrix


And just in case you think I’m excluding all the “necessary work” that needs to be done to make this world a better place, a client I worked with, some years ago, told me: “I just woke up to my dream. I’m going to take down [a major evil corporation].” There was joy in his eyes, like a man on a high cliff looking out to sea contemplating glorious unknown lands. He is making progress, real progress. I wouldn’t want to be that corporation.

What I’m describing in this article is an open path. Major steps on that path are embodied in my three Matrix collections, because I’m not only interested in characterizing the journey, but also taking it.

There is a lot of static and interference out there now

There is a lot of static and interference out there now

by Jon Rappoport

November 13, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

The tsunami of election news and fallout has created much confusion out there. People are exhausted; they’re running and hiding; their uncertainty is spiking; their cynicism is kicking into high gear; they’re trying, in some cases, to dumb themselves down…

This always happens when a large event is resolved in favor of one side, but doubts remain about the winner. It’s as if the lights in the stadium went out during the last quarter of the Super Bowl. What happened? What’s happening now? What will happen?

People are even forgetting they have lives of their own. And that’s what I want to return to. Because, when individuals park their own lives, they’re bound to experience disorientation.

General issues raised in the presidential campaign have stimulated questions that individuals ask themselves: do I want to be free? How free? Do I want to take control over my own destiny? What are my true goals? Where am I going?

These and other similar questions are, of course, quite valid. And yes, answering them can cause an upheaval.

And the life of the individual is paramount. What difference does the course of the nation make, if the individual loses his way, if most individuals lose their way? After all, this nation was founded on the basis of liberation of the individual.

I suggest that the disparity between where a person is headed and where he REALLY wants to go is at the core of the confusion he may be feeling. This disparity has arisen time and time again in my consulting work with private clients.

It doesn’t resolve by turning away and ignoring the gap. It doesn’t resolve by pretending the situation isn’t real.

The presidential campaign featured two candidates who had very different visions for the future of America. Those differences caused many people—if only at a subconscious level—to question their own vision for their own future.

What’s the compromised vision? What’s the real one?

What’s the vision that would get me out of bed in the morning ready to go, filled with energy and excitement and optimism?

When a person sacrifices THAT, he’s operating from a severe deficit. He’s filling in blanks in his life with rationalizations.


Exit From the Matrix


The notion of serious contemplation has become foreign in this society. But serious contemplation is exactly what is needed, if the individual is to change course and move in the direction he really wants to pursue.

This is not a side issue. This is a central issue. This is the big one.

Understanding that fact alone can restore equilibrium. And then, self-engagement in discovering what the best personal vision is becomes the next adventure.

No amount of static and interference floating in the air these days justifies backing away from that adventure.

The life of the individual is paramount.

The founding principles of this nation were engraved to emphasize it.
