[a note i sent to the GreenLight office team whom i’ll soon be visiting]
as most of you probably already know, i’m gonna be up there next week for a few weeks. this visit will be a little different. my primary reason for being there this time is not to work on the dashboard or to take care of all the little IT issues that may arise.
my main reason for visiting will be to evaluate processes [including what everyone is doing on a daily basis, not just the very technical processes on the computer] so i can help streamline what everyone does and make things run more efficiently.
i will be observing a lot of the time and working with everyone individually when i notice things that could be done more efficiently. please don’t take it personally if i ask you to change the way you do something — it’s not you or your decision to do something a certain way, its just that i can see things would work better by doing it differently [either in the specific process you’re doing or in relationship to the entire process for the customer, team, or company].
i’ll be using the same type of observation, perspectives, and natural abilities [or skills and talents, if you will] that have allowed me to create a million dollar dashboard system all by myself. this same type of approach works to streamline many aspects of life, and can really be applied anywhere. we can all learn to cultivate this type of awareness, and i could work with you to assist you in doing so if you so desire. [its simply learning to transcend the limitations of the mind and awaken to one’s true nature/essence. from that place/perspective/understanding/connection/awareness everything flows naturally and effortlessly, and all the pieces simply come together almost of their own doing. it may not always be the simplest process to get to that place, based upon each individual’s past conditioning, though choosing to do so and actualizing this will be the single most essential aspect/element one can affect (or achieve in one’s life) to open up the doorway (or more like the floodgates) for abundance, happiness, health, love, peace, etc, etc. i won’t go off too much into it at the moment, feel free to find the recent audio recordings i’ve created (on my website) to explore this more or just ask me to elaborate more — if the latter, coming to me from a place of openness and genuine desire to understand this will allow me to share a much more meaningful or insightful answer that will help guide you on your own specific journey.]
if you do have any technical requests, please email them to me and i will respond accordingly. if we need to set up a time to speak about them when i’m up there, and i have time to do so after working on refining our process and efficiency, then we’ll sit down and go over things. as always, please do respect that i may not respond immediately [or for quite a while] if i’m in the middle of working, either on the computer, with someone, or in observing or tweaking a process.
this aspect alone [that i just described] is something we can all learn to apply in our lives to manage time much more efficiently. work in blocks of time and turn off and remove all distractions [especially those that are not aligned with a similar energy or feeling to that which truly resonates with you or that which is in the direction you are going/growing] so you can give your full and undivided attention to the task at hand, whatever it may be. not only will that bring efficiency up to the next level, it will also subtly allow you to cultivate greater awareness into the present moment (and out of the mind, thoughts, emotions, worries, fears, negativity, etc that are really the sole cause of things not going as one likes in life). if one studies all the great geniuses, artists, inventors, and other creative types [or creators], one will see this underlying aspect that was shared amongst them. [regarding that which is underlying, some of you may begin to notice that my presence up there and on the team does have an underlying (or subtle) energy, impact, and message.. and a good part of my visit may really be focused on this aspect of being as it is the most critical]
anyhow, enough of the details. i know some of them [or all of them] may not make any bit of sense to the mind, though one day it will all come together in its own nature. and it’s always quite brilliant and profound when one does experience such a great realization.
let’s embrace this journey together so we can all grow individually and as a whole to the next level. collectively, we have the ability to take this to somewhere we may have not yet fully realized or even imagined possible. let’s know this is indeed possible, and experience this happening.
When you're operating at the high mystic altitudes, your guidance will tend to be more absurd than literal.
i put this playlist together yesterday [2015.05.18] though will likely update it as i create more. the individual time-lapse videos are in chronological order by the date shot, starting with the first ones i made back in early 2009 [shortly after i first discovered the little planet look, figured out how to do the whole technique, and then naturally thought it’d be awesome to do a time-lapse video with this technique as no one had done so yet]
this technique has gotten tremendously easier since i got a ricoh theta camera last year. it no longer takes many days just to stitch and process the images, nor the need to carry many pounds of heavy equipment that has to be precisely aligned [which also required a large, heavy case to be carried in and a heavy duty tripod to be mounted on]. now, a small camera that fits in my pocket, my iPhone, and something to mount the camera on [which can also fit in my pocket] is all that’s needed, and the most difficult part of the image processing is done automatically! the only downfall is that the image quality is a bit less than using my custom rig, though it still yields good results and allows for shots that could not have been done with the other gear, such as the aerial shot where the camera was hanging from the kite line as i walked for miles on the beach [or a driving shot that i have yet to process, which reminds me there are also a few other 360×180 little planet time-lapses i’ve shot that i have not yet created as of the time i’m writing this].
due to the way the youtube embed works with playlists that have different aspect ratio videos, some clips may be cropped a little bit. use this link to see the entire playlist directly on youtube: www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLYlEKn8xkNmW3bOSwai0v6bu3cFPmaK23
