I have never enjoyed cleaning, and working in a hospital, not only do I have to keep things clean from everyday dirt, there are also highly contagious infectious diseases to worry about.
In my role as a health care assistant, the task of cleaning the sluice (the place where all bodily fluids and excrement are disposed of) was not a popular one, in fact I would avoid this task unless specifically asked, hoping someone else would do it and fearing the infectious diseases and the powerful chemical we use to clean the entire room every day.
It’s been amazing to see that with simple participation in the Balanced View Teaching, taking short moments with my thoughts, emotions and experiences, and participating in the trainings and Clarity Calls, a natural wish to step up to my responsibilities has arisen in me and the capacity for deep care of others has taken priority over the habitual reliance on descriptions, like fear and disgust. Since receiving the introduction to open intelligence at a Balanced View Open Meeting, I’ve been shown these descriptions simply appear and disappear, like a line drawn in water.
I’ve also been deeply impressed by the shining example of the Trainers and participants from whom I’ve experienced the deepest care and compassion and who I see serve whatever circumstance they are in with such heartfelt commitment to being the greatest benefit they can be.
Another thing I love about relying on open intelligence is how gifts and talents I didn’t know I had emerge and become available to use whenever needed. For example, since participating in the Teaching, I’ve discovered thoroughness is one of my natural gifts. I really like to ensure things are done well.
All of this empowerment has meant that I now volunteer to clean the sluice. I can even say I enjoy it! I don’t enjoy being in the infectious room with all the bodily fluids, but I enjoy contributing my gift of thoroughness whilst cleaning, knowing that I am keeping vulnerable patients safe from infections and I am giving them the gift of clean equipment to use, instead of something extra to worry about in addition to serious illness. I also enjoy contributing to my team in this way, volunteering to do a task that nobody else wants to do and feeling such compassion for others, knowing the thoughts and emotions that I was affected by before I began relying on open intelligence, and feeling very grateful that I’ve been so fortunate to meet the Balanced View Teaching because I hardly notice those thoughts and emotions anymore. Instead I am filled with the joy and the power of the heart wish to benefit others.
This is a simple example of just one of the benefits of the Balanced View Teaching, but for me it is very powerful to see a complete transformation occur with such care and compassion for all. It makes me really see how if open intelligence was relied upon to solve global problems that are currently avoided such as homelessness, prostitution, slavery, nuclear waste and plastic disposal, how wonderful the results would be for humanity and our entire planet of beautiful beings.
I am so deeply grateful to Candice O’Denver who has made the Teaching of Balanced View so accessible for all and to everyone who chooses to step into their immensely beneficial power by participating. Thank you!
