The Wisdom Seekers

wisdom backpack complete

As I was taking Cedric and Dominika’s ©Trail Blazing Course, the idea of writing my own course dropped like a piano falling from a second story window. I heard the TWANG and began feverishly writing, filling my backpack with How to do, be and have my heart’s desire.

I know, most of us want courses on #How-to Blog, #How to write, #How to conduct seminars, #How to get ten thousand followers, or #How to build that gizmo you’ve dreamed of for so long.

Well darn. I want that too.

So why aren’t I presenting that?

Because there are hundreds of courses, blogs, Podcasts, and YouTubes out there that will tell you better than I can.

However, I feel this course has an added psychological/spiritual component. for we have found that some “experts” say that one’s psychology is 80% of the battle in living the life we choose. If that’s true, then we better get busy clearing the path to our greatness.

First, do some cleaning, then begin to pack your backpack with Self-confidence, enthusiasm, a belief in your own ability to do, be or have your heart’s desire.  A knowledge that envying other successful people doesn’t help, but that mirroring them does—those are the sort of attributes I’m talking about.

Contrary to popular conditioning, we weren’t put on this planet to suffer, and yes, we are complex individuals who have received many hits along the way. On top of that, we have our genetics, our social conditioning, our family heritage, and three million years of evolution built into us.

Rick Hanson, a neuroscientist, states that neurons that fire together wire together.

For years we have probably been hearing that we’ll never make it, we can’t do it right, we’re not good enough, smart enough, good-looking enough or know the right people.

Throw that out of your backpack.

We are the Wisdom Seekers, and we are about to set off on a journey toward being the person we want, doing the work we want, and with whom we want.

What’s in your Backpack?

If you are lost in the forest with no one around, having money in your backpack won’t help much, well, come to think of it, not at all.

If you had a compass that would help. A space blanket—good idea. An extra jacket, some food, water, a cell phone, a map. A Survival Manuel would be good, a knife, a knowledge that most creeks run into rivers and rivers normally take you to people. If you find no creek, it would be advantageous to know how to collect the morning dew, what plants are safe to eat, how to make a snare, matches, how to start a fire without them.

Now we’re cooking.

The more knowledge you have in your backpack, the better your chances of survival.

What’s in your psychological backpack?

First, before we get carried away with packing, let’s clean out our backpack. You know that molding cheese from the last trip.

Toss it.

Those rocks from past injuries?



Bury it.

Place into your backpack only that which serves you.
