The theme for this article is restructuring life, bringing in the new, and throwing out the old. It also touches on how to utilise downtime effectively. Influences for this piece are two hobbies. Wrestling and stand up comedy: How will I make an article from the two unlikely bedfellows? Prepare yourself for some eclectic thinking; I’ll take you on a journey.
‘The New World Order Organisation’ or NWO Group were a collection of wrestlers that came together because wrestling bosses were serving up a dull, mediocre product. Full of old ideas: rehashed and re-presented as new and innovative. ‘The New World Order’ came into being to challenge a wrestling world dominated by one company. ‘The New World Order’ came in with an attitude, a fresh approach and changed the wrestling landscape for two or three years.
Ian and I enjoy interesting discussions. We spoke of a method of taking a word and throwing it out into the universe: then sense whatever vibration or energy comes back from meditation. Then give it an airing and either write or record words about mediation arisings. Using this way of working has influenced my writing style. Spirit woke me one morning and gave me the words ‘New World Order’. I was a little bit puzzled: although I trust this working style, so this article was written!
Another long term hobby is studying and observing stand up comedy. It has fascinated me how people can take a word or an occurrence and weave it into a humorous tale. One man who, for me, epitomised this was Bob Monkhouse. He brilliantly took a few words and turned them into a monologue: thrilling audiences with his storytelling: he made relevant points for consideration. His style of working is also an influence in this piece.
Bob and I have something in common. Our writing and thinking are flexible. I mention this because rigidity will not allow compromise or help in making changes or alterations. Blinkered thinking without an ability to compromise will inevitably lead you down a narrow corridor with little room for manoeuvre.
What does The New World Order mean? Well, let’s look further. The key to any journey is preparation before a single footstep is taken. To make life changes, you should be willing to put yourself centre stage and scrutinise your thoughts, deeds and actions. If you can be flexible with your mindset, you can start the journey. I’m prompting you to analyse thought patterns and notice if your attitude changes after self-contemplation. Be honest with yourself, take responsibility and decide to implement Change when needed.
How can we bring a New World Order and make it relevant in our environment? As already noted, look at your patterns. Are you like wrestling before the NWO brand? Are you turning out a tried and tested product because that is what you have always done? Is there a monotonous quality about it? Do you know or feel something is missing, but fear or familiarity stops you from making changes?
Do you start with lots of energy and enthusiasm for projects: which soon become without enthusiasm? How do you know when it is time to make changes? The key to this is learning to recognise energy levels: how much life force you have: how much enthusiasm for completing the daily tasks of life?
The NWO Organisation recognised the old product was stale and needed refreshing. It required innovation and new ways of thinking about something performed thousands of times before. NWO Organisation decided that changes needed making and came in with the attitude of ride with us or didn’t either way change is coming
Now to come to the crux! Let’s start the journey. Let’s create an action plan and flow chart simple in construction and a good reference point. Start by asking basic questions, consider your life experiences: and the environment. Do not judge yourself harshly during one’s observations. Ask if you’re happy with life and if the answer is: ‘Yes’, then there is no need to change. Carry on doing what you are doing and make minor tweaks when necessary. If the answer is ‘No’, consider: What is your truth? How would you define true happiness? And how would you know if you were indeed surrounded by happiness? Objective thinking is needed! Because if we can identify what ‘happiness’ is, we can start putting in the foundations of a pathway to change. I think you have to want to change the landscape before it can be adapted.
Look carefully at your environment: is it conducive to bringing out the best in you? If ‘Yes’ answers, then you are doing a good job. If ‘No’, then changes are required. Remember, at the beginning of the Change, we will encounter hurdles or even complete stop roadblocks. A furtive mind conjure’s up to all sorts of reasons (excuses) why an NWO cannot be achieved: For example, lack of money, no confidence, the ‘other people won’t like it’ syndrome. One big excuse is: ‘I don’t have the time’ – I’m too busy’ And I’ll counter ‘You want me to believe you are willing to prioritise time focussed on the things you don’t want in your life?’ and ‘You prefer wasteful activity rather than use beneficial effort into building a new life?’ The answer is for you to choose! If your choice is to stagnate and waste your time and effort. Let’s assume you are not happy to progress and advance your life, and the article ends here.
To my mind, the status quo needs challenging, and It is essential to think long and hard about yourself. If the thought is toward making a positive and beneficial change: how do we make them work? A journey of reflection is essential. Without understanding how you live, you will never know why you live in your way. And unless there is an acceptance, not of your assets, but your failings, the way to change cannot happen.
Let’s recap: there is a need for Change. The energy to complete the task is there, as is the willingness to challenge the status quo. For a time, the condition is to work to eradicate feelings of inadequacies and lack of confidence. Think carefully that the new way of life (the New World Order) will take time to achieve, and your positive changes may not be consciously recognised. But stay positive and work with care in the future. Focus on EVERY positive aspect of your life.
Allow the ability to reflect on failure and setbacks as positive. Then a hurdle is encountered say ‘I am fuelling Change: I am putting down the foundations for new pathways to happiness. I have identified where I want to be and where I want to go, and there needs to be no specific timeline to when my NWO will become manifest’. You’ll not beat the adages: ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day and ‘Forward is forward no matter how small the steps, and you WILL gain momentum.
Realise situations and life events sometimes have a habit of throwing you a curveball. This is when the flexibility of mindset is needed most. Don’t get locked into turning out a stale product if it doesn’t reflect the true self adequately. Think clearly about what is suitable for you. Speak your truth by writing your action plan. Take corrective action to achieve the desired results. Engrave this truth the walls of the soul: ‘Change is possible when I believe in myself, my objectives, my desires, my life.
Some of you will take solace from the ideas. Others will disagree. A majority of sceptics will reel out ‘Easier said than done Rick’ To all of you, I ask: ‘What role are you playing in the costume you have made from your deeds and thoughts?’ Your eyes are reading these words NOW, and your body will live this life just once. Sure, there may be some hasty re-writes of the play of life scenes. There will be many alternative routes to travel, and even those will encounter detours (life can be very twisted). But consider the accepted truth: Life is a many act play, and the curtains fall only once. There will be NO Encore.
Humankind will always show true colours or what they are made of during difficult times. Issues and ‘full stops’ will need to be encountered. However, we’ll discover positives in even the smallest of problems if we look. Although one has to train the mind to see the positive, seeing the negative is easy and damages the potential to succeed. Don’t wait until you’re isolated or locked in before making positive changes. Begin today! You’ve earned the opportunity to change just by standing on the stage of life.
Be sure you are good enough for any situation. Put yourself at the forefront of your desires visualise how your New World Order should look. Remind the doubter’s changes are here, and they can ride alongside or get out of the way! Enjoy the journey and plan wisely. And always remember, in times of doubt, the guy in the noisy waistcoat has you in his thoughts and prayers.
Bright blessings Rick Paul.
