Your Daily Recruiting Journal, Conclusion

Hello Again, Friends, My decision is made. I kind of knew it last week, but it is a painful choice for me. In case you might not remember, having finished my work here, my plan was to now return to my beloved Recruiting Rene thread and finish up the last six rules, left unfinished when […]

If you can force yourself to meditate on the outline I posted yesterday – my FSTOPS™ model – you should. If you can’t its okay, of course. I won’t go into any details for now, but to end our work here I will go over the big picture with you. I’ll post the outline again, […]

Diagnosis, Cure…Decisions. Don’t ask me how, but I made a Decision once upon a time, and sold it to my daughter. She was pregnant with twins and I sold her on naming – I really did this – BOTH of her daughters after their grandmother, my beloved Queen Kate. The twins’ names are Kathryn and […]

Did you realize that the medical model, with Diagnosis and Cure, dates back roughly 4,500 years to ancient India?

It’ll be exactly one year ago, this Friday, that I was diagnosed with my diabetes. While we’ve been working on this meditation together here about your own daily recruiting journal, the significance – actually, my own desperate need – of diagnosis keeps hitting me again and again. Go back in time with me once more […]

The mind needs time to change. Think about cement hardening. Do you remember Pharaoh, Moses’ Pharaoh? Didn’t matter how many plagues came and went…until his first born son was dead, Pharaoh’s heart did nothing but harden. When your mind is made up… So that was why I had to shut out the world. It wasn’t […]

We have now completed our work in The Scopelliti Line™. We’re entering the final stage of this conversation. We turn in conclusion to these three aspects of your daily journal work: (1) Diagnosis (2) Cure (3) Decision(s) Digging in… Diagnosis. Go back with me to my own diagnosis as a diabetic.

In the beginning your work was void and without form, and the spirit of accomplishment moved across the surface of your work’s chaotic waters and you said… You said what? Contemplate this now, really. In the beginning, your work was void and without form, was it not? Yes, you know it was. Ah, but now […]
