Finding the Balance Point
An Excerpt from Being Here: Modern Day Tales of Enlightenment
by Ariel & Shya Kane

Most people aim to live in a way that produces a sense of well-being, satisfaction and accomplishment. We are all interested in being productive and achieving the goals that are consistent with our values. However, the two of us have often observed that in the desire to attain their goals, people often lose sight of what is happening in their lives…in each moment. People are driven to accomplish what they think will produce happiness, success and well-being and miss all that life has to offer when you are Being Here.

We are not suggesting that you should not have goals. It is simply that focusing on future goals will rob you of the richness of this moment.

Here is an example:

Since we are both avid fly fishers, we took a short vacation after one of our winter seminars in Costa Rica, where we set out to catch large Pacific sailfish on fly rods. There we hired Captain Bobby, his boat and mate to take us off the Costa Rican coast in the blue Pacific in search of these majestic creatures.

Each year, for the previous four years, we had fished with Captain Bobby. When we first met him, he was working for a fishing lodge as one of their premier guides. We seemed to get along well together, so we continued to book trips with him after he went into business for himself.

It was just Bobby, his mate and the two of us, on a 26-foot boat, heading off shore for an adventure near Golfito, Costa Rica. There is something about the intensity and immediacy of life at sea that fascinates and feeds us.

Each day began at dawn as we motored away from the small village nestled next to the rain forest and out between the arms of land that guard Golfito. As we headed out to sea, we always encountered something vital. There were majestic trees on shore that burst into purple blossoms and the fragrance wafted out on the breeze. We often came upon giant schools of dolphins that jumped and cavorted, swimming in front of the bow of the boat, a marine vanguard of some of the most intelligent creatures on the planet. There were big gray ones, sleek and powerful, effortlessly gliding, gracing our craft with their presence, elegantly taking turns leading us to wherever our bow was pointed. There were also the spinner dolphins that treated us to aerial acrobatic displays as they jumped and spun, twirling in apparent delight before splashing back into the sea. The spinners are often accompanied by yellowfin tuna and they work together corralling and feeding upon the schools of small baitfish. You can see this group from a long distance. It is a frenzy of glistening water, leaping shapes and a raucous cloud of diving seabirds.

Sea turtles are more sedate. They poke their heads above water to watch the world go by. Occasionally, we have had a spectacular view of whales, up close and personal. On one particular trip, we saw a mother and her calf speeding toward the distant shore. They leapt and dove in tandem on a path parallel to our boat. For some time we kept pace with these giants.

Manta rays do back flips, frigate birds soar high on the thermals and pelicans fly in formation inches above the waves as they catch the updrafts. And then, there are the big game fish, dorado, Pacific sailfish and marlin. The dorado are golden, blue green bullets that streak from the deep to attack the lures that are trolled behind the boat. Sailfish materialize, thrashing about as they attempt to stun the bait with their beaks, so that they can have a leisurely feed. And the marlins are the kings – creatures without equal. These amazingly powerful and aggressive goliaths emerge from nowhere at full fury; suddenly the deceptively passive skin of the water erupts as something the size of a small car explodes into view.

Sometimes on one of these trips, we have come upon a log, floating like a solitary world 20 or 30 miles from anything, a whole ecosystem unto itself. Birds sit and rest. Crabs and shrimp-like creatures scuttle on its surface and below, in the shadow of the log itself, descending layers of baitfish circle and feed upon the smaller life forms. The dorado, sailfish and marlin can lurk just out of view waiting to pounce.

So our “fishing” expeditions are immersions into the life and grandeur of the sea. Each day on the water is a gift, full of sights, sounds and smells that allow us to get back in touch with nature and the vastness of life on the planet.

You would think that being a fishing captain would be a very fulfilling way to lead life. But Captain Bobby was blinded by a revolving set of goals. When we first met him, he would complain about the management of the lodge and say, “If I had my own boat, I would do it differently. I would do things better than they do.”

On this particular trip, Bobby had finally accomplished some of his life long ambitions, including getting a boat of his own. His current goal, which he enticed us to be a part of, was to capture a world record sized fish on a fly rod. Bobby was very interested in Ariel becoming the new women’s world record holder for Pacific sailfish and so our days included attaining this goal. It became an exciting adventure to hunt for big game, hoping to catch one that was the biggest ever recorded. One day, Ariel caught that big fish. It was truly a giant. A grizzled beast weighing well over l00 pounds, almost 10 feet long from tip to tail.

We had won. We had accomplished what we had set out to do. The euphoria lasted almost an entire evening. Then the trouble began. Bobby had met one of his own personal goals and so it was on to the next one with a fervor and intensity of purpose. What we discovered was that he was no longer just fishing and enjoying the wealth of experience to be had on the ocean. We were now fiercely directed into “must get another world’s record” as if the attainment of this goal would produce some sense of real and lasting satisfaction.

A few days later, Ariel caught a world record size roosterfish. That night at dinner Bobby let us know that this was one of his four life goals. Things after that went from somewhat bad to worse. He became irritable, easily frustrated and quick to anger. Now we couldn’t do it right enough for him, nor could we catch a big enough fish, fast enough. Fishing became serious business. No more “Mr. Nice Guy.” We talked to him about this, of course, since it was not our idea of fun on vacation. He wasn’t so open about his frustration during the rest of the trip but we could see it seething just below the surface.

Bobby had gotten lost in the idea that attaining the next goal would somehow fulfill him, validate his existence and make him a happier person. The problem with this idea arises when you actually attain your objective. Life is not fundamentally changed by achievement. And so the accomplishment of a goal, under these circumstances, does not produce a sense of well-being or satisfaction.

If you are satisfied in yourself, the attainment of a goal is satisfying. If you are not satisfied, the attainment of a goal only stimulates the need for the next one. The completion of something intensifies who you are and how you are currently being. So, if the attainment of a goal is about expressing yourself into life, then your feeling of self-expression, self-worth and well-being is intensified. If, however, you are producing goals because you feel you are deficient or inadequate, coming from the fantasy that the attainment of your desires will produce satisfaction or sufficiency, when you reach your objective, you will be disappointed. The sense of emptiness or dissatisfaction becomes stronger.

Having goals can be extremely useful but not if they are attained while sacrificing your experience of living in each moment. If you are worrying about the future and the production of goals, you cannot be engaged in what is happening in this current moment in your life.

Our fishing story is a prime example. Catching big game fish requires more than just the angler’s skill. It is a team effort and having a mutual goal kept all of us focused and gave meaning and purpose to our actions. Mistakes were minimized because we brought all of our attention and ability to the process of catching fish. But there is a balance point. Focus is a benefit, but if you are off in the future, expecting the outcome to produce long-term happiness or satisfaction, you miss the magic of the moment and life becomes serious and two-dimensional.

Ariel ultimately caught three world record fish during that trip, two Pacific sailfish and one roosterfish. She currently holds numerous Women’s Fly Fishing World Records with The International Game Fish Association.

Rojas-2

Cheryl Esposito welcomes Dr. Lyly Rojas, a university professor, international humanitarian, and co-founder of the European Institute of Collaborative Law. She specializes in the teaching the culture of Peace (inner and outer), Corporate Social Responsibility, and Multicultural Intelligence.

Lyly was born in Nicaragua, a country of conflict with a long history of turmoil, and ultimately her family had to flee because of their political beliefs. “I was born into a political family and we were ‘living’ international issues. I was born into a family where people were always making choices about staying and leaving and asking the questions: Where is home? Is it time to go or stay?”

She has worked with and consulted to the United Nations; as an advisor to the Vatican in the trafficking of human beings; in war zones training diplomats, human rights workers, the military, and tortured women and children. The unifying theme for her work: compassion and dignity for self and others. Lyly says that we cannot begin to help others heal if we cannot heal ourselves. “How can you teach peace if you are not peaceful within yourself?”

She helps individuals, families, groups, corporations, and entire nations to connect with their inherent peace making capacities, teaching conflict resolution, non-violent communication, corporate social responsibility, and multicultural consultancy skills. Her current book project is titled: From Inner Peace to Outer Peace and All the Pieces In Between.

Join Cheryl Esposito and Dr. Lyly Rojas to explore inner peace as the key to world peace.

Developing Inner Peace as the Nucleus to Global Peace – Part 1 by Ariel & Shya Kane

Developing Inner Peace as the Nucleus to Global Peace – Part 1 by Ariel & Shya Kane

buddha

World peace is a very laudable ideal but have you ever noticed how much easier it is to philosophize about the big important things, like ending war, while we ourselves harbor resentments, hold onto vendettas or wish negative things on people? We think negatively towards others as though it is our God-given right to be right and others obviously caused our discomfort. How many times have you heard yourself say, “They got me angry!” or “They made me mad!” or “They humiliated me?”

We are not saying that ideally you would not wish to be beyond those petty thoughts and the need to prove yourself right at the cost of your experience of love, well being, happiness, relationship and partnership. What we are saying is that in the reality of people’s innermost thoughts, they mechanically and uncontrollably think things which sometimes lead to actions that, in retrospect, they are not proud of.

It has been more than 2000 years since the death of Christ, the Prince of Peace, who brought the message of love. Well his message has not gotten across. If you look at the world situation, there is no longer war between the Romans and the rest of the world, but there is war present all over the world.

There was a time when one faced the enemy intimately and fought hand to hand. This barbaric way of fighting still exists but in our modern age we have developed smart bombs and cruise missiles so that we don’t have to see our opponent face-to-face. Diplomats and politicians have, throughout history, attempted to find idealistic and peaceful solutions other than going to war. And yet the human condition has not improved substantially. Our technology has, our gadgetry has, our creature comforts have, but humanity’s sense of well being, of inner peace is no greater than it was 2000 years ago.

As newborns we did not decide what language we wanted to learn. Somewhere around the second year of our lives, we had mastered the mother tongue of the culture we were born into. Not only did we master the language, we also absorbed and were inculcated into the standards and mores of that culture and society. Like a computer, we function through the information that has been downloaded into it. We make choices and decisions from the information that we have absorbed.

All of us were born into an ongoing society and culture. What we have learned is what has been available in the knowledge bank/base of that society. All of the ideas, techniques and available methods of self improvement, inner peace, well being and self realization, have been handed down to us from what has come before. These ideas, however laudable, are flawed by the ideas and techniques that have been available to produce this “self improvement”. The programs and ideas developed as innovations from past therapeutic modalities, based in a psychological mode, have not provided the sense of well being that individuals and humanity as a whole are striving for. The other avenue, other than psychology, has been religion and this too has only provided limited well being to its practitioners and participants. There have been some interim results produced, but as a whole, humanity is no more satisfied now than it was 100 years ago.

We have been taught or given the idea that when we attain something or achieve something, the quality of our lives will get better. That when we graduate from school, life will begin. That when we get a relationship, get engaged, married, the right job, the right degrees from school, the right automobile, a house, these things will satisfy us and make us feel better. This idea of achievement producing well-being is also flawed. You cannot earn enough money, or own enough objects or things to feel good about yourself when you don’t feel good about yourself, to feel secure when you are insecure. Well being exists independent of material possessions and achievements and it happens when you live your life directly and in the present moment. Well being is a by-product of being in the moment. It is not a goal to be achieved or something to get to. It takes place when you are living your life in each moment.

Our approach to peace is transformational. It is our hypothesis that if you discover inner peace and well being, you will no longer need to hold onto resentments and vendettas. As a natural outcome of this inner peace, you will discover forgiveness in its purest form. We believe that for this planet to heal itself, it must happen one individual being at a time.

“How is this possible?” You may ask. “World peace and planetary healing is too mighty a task for just one individual!” Yes, you are right but the power of one centered individual cannot be underestimated.

Transformation allows for a dissolving and completion of previously resisted mechanical behaviors that have undermined people’s ability to make a difference in their lives and in their world. Our approach is anthropological. An anthropologist does not judge the culture that he or she is studying. They notate the behavior of that particular culture without judgment of good or bad or right or wrong behaviors but merely objectively state their observations.

Awareness is the basis of our technique of nonjudgmental observation resulting in the completion of previously unwanted habitual behavior. Our definition of awareness is a nonjudgmental seeing or noticing of the way you interact with your life circumstances. By simply noticing how you are without judging yourself for what you see, you will strengthen your ability to be present and centered regardless of the circumstances. And contrary to popular thought, if you do not judge yourself and if you are not hard on yourself when you see yourself lost in a “bad” habit, you will not become complacent. It has been our experience in working with thousands of people from all walks of life and from many different cultures all over the world that when a person lives his or her life with awareness, that individual is self empowered and becomes more productive, effective and satisfied.

We have discovered three ideas or principles that have been profoundly useful to people who are interested in dissolving mechanical behaviors and reclaiming control of their own lives. In Developing Inner Peace as the Nucleus to Global Peace Part 2 in next month’s article, we will investigate these Three Principles of Instantaneous Transformation as an access way into the moment and a gateway to inner peace.
