Interview mit Clinton Callahan (2015 & 2016)
My Name is Clinton Callahan and I’ve written a couple of books and I’ve designed a couple trainings, ETB and PM LABs, and I am the co-founder of the Next Culture Research and Trainings Center, which the main office is in Germany.
I studied Physics in School and I had my own Computer and Electronics-Company for a few years until my life fell apart, accidentally, and I discovered my true profession which was to be a memetic engineer, this was in about 1990. I completely changed professions and since than I’ve been developing upgraded thoughtware for human beeings.
Feelings are a very human and naturally organic resource that human beings have as a fuel source for bringing our archetypal lineage, our true calling into the world. Feelings are not recognized by modern culture for what they authentically are. And through our research for the past 40 years we have discovered how simple it is to tap into and make use of this immense inner resource for our daily life and making it full of energy, clarity and possibility.
As soon as a person starts wanting to be himself and starts communicating with another person about that, the communication contains to aspects, one is the information of the communication and one is the energy, the carry away of the information. The carry away of every communication is feelings. So it’s so important to understand the basic mechanics of how feelings work, so that you can communicate in your relationships, that love can happen. What we have discovered that there are actually simply, basically 4 feelings that a human being can experience and express. And these are, you would call them, like the 4 basic colors, red, green, blue and yellow, these are the 4 basic feelings anger, saddnes, fear and joy. Out of those 4 feelings you can mix together the entire spectrum of human experience and emotions and paint it together… but if you don’t know the 4 basic feelings, you can have lost in an arch form of human loving relationships. So that’s why they are so important.
And as soon as you start to enter the territory of understand feeling there is realy important to make distinctions to navigate this huge territory. For example there is an distinction between what you could call feelings and what you call emotions. This distinction is easy to distinguish because even though feelings and emotions are both feel like anger, sadness, fear and joy or mixed feelings, in fact if the feelings experience lasts longer than about 3min it is not a feeling, it is an emotion, which means that the source comes from somebody else, from the past or comes from your gremlin. So the gremlin is simply the shadow world part of yourself that has a hidden purpose. That is not necessarily responsible.
So these three sources of emotions, ones you can distinguish these experiencely you have a whole another level of ability to navigate the realm of feelings and in communication with people, being in relationship with people. Ask your question again…
Because of the thoughtware that we are inherit from our parents and modern culture we tent to regard feelings as mostly negative. Anger is bad, sadness is bad, fear is bad. We’ve been trained since birth to really suppress our feelings and not use them in our life. When you do that, there are many many side effects that can actually harm our health. I am not a doctor, yet at the same time people come to our trainings with physical ailments and when we work processes through with emotional body and they are no longer suppressing or mixing certain feelings
together, their althoughs go away, their headecks go away, there bone pains go away. This isn’t a miracle cure, but I’m just telling you what we see happen as soon as. So you just have to imagine that for 20, 30, 40 years a person has been suppressing their sadness or their anger from something that happened a long time ago. That shapes their muscles, it shapes their inner organs, it shapes the way chemicals go through your brain and body and that has consequences.
So we’ve been stared along almost daily by the consequences, the results that have actually consciously experienced and expressing could you feelings in terms of the healings aspects of that. 10:28 That’s to long… It is common in modern culture to repress the so called negative feelings of anger or sadness or especially fear. Because the program is we are not supposed to be afraid. So we put the feelings down and put a numbnessbar very high and we use a lot of our energy in our daily life to suppress the energy we have to use our life as an adult men or women.
It’s an amazing isometric inner exercise that happens to suppress feelings. That uses up of a lot of energy makes people tired, makes people exhausted, brings people into burn-out conditions and really sometimes even psychological brake down through constantly suppress the feelings and emotions.
It’s hard to imagine if people where initiated into adulthood, authentic archetypal adulthood and get in touch with our feelings and inner resources and some external resources, it’s hard to imagine what that world would be like, because every institution that modern culture runs on, is based on old thoughtware that suppresses feelings and cuts us off from our imagination, our instinct and our passion and our vision, it cuts us off from that, so that we can be servants, that we can be controlled, that we can be consumers.
If you start to think about if somebody jacked into the actuall force and reason of their birth. We do we come here, why am I here, what is my job. If we hook into the 4 archetypes that come instarlating from turning on this anger and this sadness and the fear and the joy. From turning those on from inside, and those archetypes come out and they can behave s part of ourselves, as force that we have, the kind of relationships, the kind of community, the kind of negotiations we would have with people who had different ideas that ours, we wouldn’t need weapons, we wouldn’t need war, we wouldn’t need boundaries between countries.
We wouldn’t need to delimit another persons separate from ourselfes, because that’s all superficial and it all comes from fear, not turning on these resources. If human beings actually were initiated into natural organic adulthood, that we are designed for, our entire relationship to the world would shift from defensive, which means that’s you and this is me, I have to take care of myself, to expansive, which means hey wow what are you, what can we do together? what can we create together?
How can we make use of what is available and create what ever we need together? nd this is an totally different orientation. 14:24 blabla story about football player… champion, losers, all of these question would disintegrate as soon as you upgrade your thoughtware to the third game which is called winning happening instead of I win you lose or what ever. Winning happening, it’s a totally different game.
Part of the basic understanding of how human beings should come together and should work together as we are taught by modern culture has to do with this pyramid structure, the hierarchical structure of who is the boss, where is my place, how do I fit into this triangular pyramidal diagram and then you know where the power flows and you know how it goes. To take this pyramid and expand it’s dimensions, so that in fact it goes all the way around you have all of a sudden a circle, you actually have a galaxy, a galaxy of possibilities that before we were
restricted to a linear powerflow. In the galaxy, in the circle, which is the basic design of next culture, you have interplay of relationships that are possible at different levels and the thing about the circle is so great, is in comparison to a pyramid where it is limited room at the top, where you have to fight to get to these top positions, there is limited room at the top, in a circle is unlimited room at the top, because anybody who can take responsibility to source a project, can run the project. And the circle simply gets bigger! That’s all, so there is no competition anymore to these high power positions, because every position is a high power position.
