The Big Idea Contd: The Journey of Change

Be the change you wish to see in the world – Mahatma Gandhi, Spiritual Leader

Now that we’ve established the authenticity of the Power Triangle, I would like to draw your attention back to the Journey of Change previously spoken of as the way between learning and teaching. This is the part of the trio that requires the most effort and as such, most people find it particularly difficult to deal with. This realisation is what compelled me to write this book in the first place as I feel that there are many people it will help. There are several interlinked aspects in life that are essential in bringing about a change in any given area but I have managed to identify some definitive ones. If properly followed, they would greatly assist anyone remotely interested in learning and possibly teaching a new idea, skill or way of life. They are as follows:

  • Learn
  • Inquire
  • Re-search
  • Believe
  • Decide
  • Study
  • Examine
  • Appraise
  • Accept
  • Practise
  • Experience
  • Teach

These form the 12 phases of my learnchangeteach Power Triangle that can be applied to any domain in life and still produce the same end result in the student; Power. The first three stages I attribute to learning, the following seven to change and the remaining two I refer to as the teaching stages. The simple themes are designed to take one from the splendour of sunrise through the heat of high-noon and ultimately, to the serenity of sunset.

To illustrate, let us apply it to someone searching for peace via religion. He first learns of the healing powers of the religion, he then inquires about it to gain further information with which he can perform his research to establish authenticity of the religion. His belief in its authenticity will aid him in his decision as to whether or not to pursue any further. If he chooses to proceed, he must then carefully study the religion to gain a deeper understanding of it. His understanding must then be examined and appraised for consideration on whether he is to be officially accepted into the religion. Acceptance here is often marked by a ceremony of some sort as it symbolises the successful change that has actually taken place in the person. He must then practice his new religion if he is to experience the fruits of his hard labour. Now, he is able to spread or teach the good news of his beautiful religion to others in need of spiritual healing as he once was.

The same process will equally apply to someone wanting to pursue a course in higher education for example, or someone who wants better social relations with family, friends and colleagues. It will even apply to a person simply requiring the key to their own self control so as to unlock their powers within. However, there are many people who do not progress beyond the first stages, some who get stuck somewhere in the middle and those who experience but never teach. It is wise for me to say here that although the higher stages will produce better events for students who have achieved that level of change, true power will forever evade them until they decide to share or teach what they have learnt. For example, an experienced lawyer who becomes a consultant will naturally make more than the experienced one who still practises in courtrooms. Experience is wisdom but not necessarily power until that wisdom is applied. Another possible reason for some choosing not to teach is one that revolves around the greedy who wrongly believe that coveting the knowledge and wisdom they learnt eliminates competition. It doesn’t! It only putrefies such people while preventing them from attaining that level of power that only teaching can bestow upon us.

Some books seem to have been written, not to teach us anything, but to let us know that the author has known something – GOETHE, Maxims and Reflections, early 19th Century.

This statement seems entirely relevant to the current state of our world’s politics, economics and religions that seem to have so much to say about everything on and off the earth except how we can truly improve our lives in the areas of our social relations, our finances and our relationship with the spirit. I hope that as you read through this blog, that you manage to obtain the diamond keys that lay hidden within its lines and pages and that they allow you to unlock all your previously closed doors and change your circumstances for the best; for gold. This is the sole purpose for which it has been written after all. Now, come with me on this wonderful Journey of Change and as we explore this fascinating Power Triangle together, my sincere wish is that it helps us all to learn to teach inspirational, universal ideas.

    We would like to thank you yet again for the lovely ideas you gave Janet when preparing her post-graduate research plus, most importantly, regarding providing each of the ideas within a blog post. In case we had known of your site a year ago, i’d have been kept from the useless measures we were employing. Thanks to you.
