    Default A Millimeter is Fantastic (a tribute to my friend Richard Jones)

    ------

    Dear All:

    I shared on this thread the remarkable story of someone on a training course I once ran who had a huge, life-changing experience.

    The story of an epiphany. Should a toxic person leave a group, or hang in there and change their life?

    I used to do this work regularly. But we didn't always get such dramatic results.

    On one course, I'd worked 15 hours a day, for five days, and the results were really quite minimal. After the participants had all returned home, I sat down with my colleague -- who on that course was a very wise man called Richard, a few years older than I was, and a quite wonderful person to work with.

    Exhausted, I complained:

    "You and I worked really hard all week off from start to finish, and after all that, they only moved a millimeter."

    Seriously but kindly, Richard leveled his eyes at me -- and I've never forgotten his words:

    "A millimeter is fantastic," he said.


    Edit to add: I received the news a few days ago that Richard has died. Please see my new post #19 below.

    My sharing this story about him was an extraordinary, timely, 'coincidence'. The last time I saw him was seven years ago. What I did not say in this post was that I strongly felt that I'd received a 'message' to tell the story. The world works, as we all do, in mysterious ways.

    This is often the millimeter that was missing to bring them to the tipping point.

    --------------------------------

    I met people years later after having work with them for very short period of time who would tell me that

    "after you, I saw my job differently, gosh it is good" or " I accepted that the pencil was not my friend and I was better off as a blue collar" or "my employees really want you, they say you are transformative" or.... enough to know that this millimeter is somewhat important for at least 10% of those we met. That millimeter was part of their tipping point, that 10% may be the what the global human for earth changes tipping point is.

    --------------------------------

    It takes 7-8 years through word of mouth only (no tv/radio/internet), to implant a new belief towards a constructive value in a 6 million population base. With only ONE presenter or trainer. I have seen it in action. The work you did, you have no idea how much it brought to the planet.

    Now, imagine the impact of the work being done on Avalon, with multiple presenter and co-trainers.

    When my son was very small himself, he used to call it a minimeter - which to me sounds like about two feet.

    Sometimes baby steps are better. You take in much more of the scenery.
    When you express from a fearful heart in the now moment, You create a fearful future.
    When you express from a loving heart in the now moment, You create a loving future.

    Have no fear, Be aware and live your lives journey from a compassionate caring nurturing heart to manifest a compassionate caring nurturing future. Billyji

    I just realized that I got a virus from Carmody: I write a post, in parts. I post the first part, then continue writing, add to the first part (with edit button), then keep on y idea, and add a third part, etc This allows for not losing the train of thoughts, that are faster than the typing. Those who thanked me have no idea what they have been thanking....

    Nice. That's a millimeter in the 'right' direction? A millimeter in any direction can be a big deal when all 4 tires are in the mud.
    'Anywhere but here' is usually attractive and helpful to a mind that's caught, and is aware that it's caught.
    Most minds haven't noticed that the tires are spinning, and they haven't moved in years.
    There was no destination in the first place. Even the idea 'destination', might be a big big change.

    Information gets in. It can't get out again. It can be ignored, or stuffed away, but it's stuffed away for later. It's in there.
    Every new (true) idea that gets planted in the mind has a truing effect of some kind on every single thought from then on,
    whether we like or agree with the idea or not. It can be accepted or rejected, but it's not going to leave.

    That's true of false information too, though it will always eventually disprove itself. How much time are we willing to waste
    of the people we share our unsorted ideas with? Sort of ramps up the idea of responsibility. Everything we say and do has an impact.

    I was told directly once, when I asked 'how do we heal the world'? I had to wait with that question until after I'd noticed
    that I'd never known anything but my own spinning tires.
    "we do it one mind at a time, and it begins with yours".

    Thanks Bill.

    Your post left me wondering if what you perceived as the 'minimal results' grew over time into something quite special.

    Don't also underestimate the processing that happens after a group event like that.

    It might seem like a small change on the surface, but the internal ones can take longer
    to perculate, it also depends what the external shifts are actually connected to, at that core level.

    If that makes any sense.

    Bill is very demanding on himself. I bet that if you were to ask the participants, right after their week, their conclusion would have been vastly different. The proof is in the pudding. He was asked back years after years, again and again.

    Your post left me wondering if what you perceived as the 'minimal results' grew over time into something quite special.
    Quote On one course, I'd worked 15 hours a day, for five days, and the results were really quite minimal.
    Bill is very demanding on himself.
    Yes, that's the exact point. My colleague was reminding me, so correctly, that apparently small victories are still victories.

    And we need MANY such victories, big or small, all the time, to make a better world. We must allow ourselves to be encouraged and heartened by sometimes the tiniest thing, and not get DIScouraged because we don't seem to be getting earth-changing results upon demand. Every parent will understand!

    And also, every Avalon member who has a friend, partner, parent or child who doesn't understand at all what's really happening in the world, and who's often in resistent denial -- but every now and then recognizes a truth which they'd not seen before: even a small one. Those too are victories to be celebrated.

    This thread is fantastic. How long is a piece of string. Every day builds a new rope ladder every ladder builds a place for more people to be included and become unified.
    Thank you Bill. I'm an infrequent visitor but follow your threads. Your words come to me at the most perfect times.

    -------

    Of interest to all philosophers of life: my good friend Richard Jones, who I wrote about here just three weeks ago on my opening post, has died. This thread was about him.

    I was able to send a link to this very thread to his wife and close friends in the UK. It was very much appreciated.

    Of course, Richard lives on -- in more ways than one. I worked alongside him extensively, and he was a source of inspiration, learning and wisdom to very many, not least myself. I look forward very much to working with him again some day.

    A millimeter or a mile
    A moment or a lifetime

    that which touches and inspires may not be tacit, but is causal to ripples and events far beyond any measuring...

    something Richard has had affirmed in an even greater way now.. I feel cetain

    Thank you for sharing this Bill
