Composite questions are a good tool ...
Is todays physics a little picture theory? Yes.
Is physics useful as such? Yes.
As far as it goes. Same for ecsys.
The details are interesting and useful. And are also (already) covered by MBT
I think attracting things into our life is useful, and it would be more useful if more details were fleshed out. In that sense, i view ecsys as a tool. The ec language is meant to fill out the details: i hope everything being the 4 forces has been clarified (it has to me), but the utility of the language has yet to be verified.
ill have to come back to that, from the reactions from others i got the view that ecsys is a totally different take on some of the concepts. And that it definitely doesn't try to lead to a language of perception, which is what ecsys tries to do... I think the equivalent in MBT would be raising ones consciousness. I will have to read MBT first ....
Ooh but in terms of beliefs and experience, the following quote i think would make an interesting discussion. Taken from here http://kathypilcher.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/og-mandino-scrolls.pdf
, 'the ten scrolls, from the greatest salesman in the world, by og mandino.'
I think the 'principles' would correspond to 'positive beliefs.'
Failure will no longer by my payment for my struggle. Just as nature made no
provision for my body to tolerate pain neither has it made any provision for my life
to suffer failure. Failure, like pain, is alien to my life. In the past I accepted it as I
accepted pain. Now I reject it and I am prepared for wisdom and principles which
will guide me out of the shadows into the sunlight of wealth, position, and happiness
far beyond my most extravagant dreams until even the golden apples in the Garden
of Hesperides will seem no more than my just reward.
Time teaches all things to he who lives forever but I have not the luxury of eternity.
Yet, within my allotted time I must practice the art of patience for nature acts never
in haste. To create the olive, king of all trees, a hundred years is required. An onion
plant is old in nine weeks. I have lived as an onion plant. It has not pleased me. Now
I wouldst become the greatest of olive trees and, in truth, the greatest of salesmen.
And how will this be accomplished? For I have neither the knowledge nor the
experience to achieve greatness and already I have stumbled in ignorance and fallen
into pools of self-pity. The answer is simple. I will commence my journey
unencumbered with either the weight of unnecessary knowledge or the handicap of
meaningless experience. Nature already has supplied me with knowledge and instinct
far greater than any beast in the forest and the value of experience is overrated,
usually by old men who nod wisely and speak stupidly.
In truth, experience teaches thoroughly yet her course of instruction devours men’s
years so the value of her lessons diminishes with the time necessary to acquire her
special wisdom. The end finds it wasted on dead men. Furthermore, experience is
comparable to fashion; an action that proved successful today will be unworkable
and impractical tomorrow.
Only principles endure and these I now possess, for the laws that will lead me to
greatness are contained in the words of these scrolls. What they will teach me is more
to prevent failure than to gain success, for what is success other than a state of mind?
Which two, among a thousand wise men, will define success in the same words; yet
failure is always described in one way. Failure is man’s in ability to reach his goals in
life, whatever they may be.
