Simon's Town, Western Cape, South Africa, 2006/06/02 - Subscribers were surprised to see a new issue of Berend Lange / Blue Crane's popular Compass eNewsletter today. Blue Crane and Compass keeps them in touch with Personal Growth and Self Development.
After five months of absence from the Internet publication circuit in the personal growth and self development genre, Berend Lange of Blue Crane has resumed the publication of his popular Compass e-Newsletter today.
Compass is widely read by people all over the world who seek a new perspective on life and appreciate the advice he gives on the challenges we face in a world that is changing fast.
The Internet is the most comprehensive source of information mankind has ever had access to. More than ever, we must choose what we want to know by filtering out the useless to find the best information available from the enormous amount of data available, he says.
When it comes to personal growth and self improvement, that's exactly what Compass does. There are limits to what we know, and we can only spend so much time on finding what is beneficial for our particular situation at any point in time, says Berend.
The benefits of learning how to improve ourselves are massive, this kind of information is never wasted or outdated. Knowing yourself is never detrimental.
It is alarming how many people feel out of step with their life : change and improvement is self-driven, however, and readers can get an insight how this works with Berend's help to adjust their direction and live the exciting lives they want.
Most people probably think that their top priority in life would be their family, or their work - maybe a hobby or sport they are passionate about, their financial situation or a happy relationship. As much as life may centre around these important issues, however, they are only backdrops for the stage on which we act to fulfill one overriding life-purpose.
Life is the only game with the sole purpose of learning the rules, Berend says.
This is true whether we are aware of it or not. The situations we are confronted with in life are tailormade to fulfill our very own destiny, and the way we deal with them determines whether our life unfolds as a struggle or in happiness. Learning the rules of the game called life is our top priority!
Why are personal growth and self-development not at the top of our daily to-do list then? There are many reasons - one of them is that we simply forget about conscious self-development in our hectic lives that are filled to capacity with desires, demands and obligations in work and play.
Another reason is that we get lost in the seeming complexity of the subject of spiritual growth, whilst in reality there are a few simple fundamental rules which, when understood and observed, make all the difference between a successful life and an unhappy existence. He has compiled the most important of these rules in his essay The REAL Facts of Life.
We need to be reminded often that we are only playing our role on a stage, that there is life after the curtain falls,says Berend. The BlueCrane.info has been created to share what he knows about personal growth and help visitors focus on their own self-development.
Most of mankind is still not aware that we create our own lives by the way we think and act at any given moment, that our environment and circumstances are a result and mirror image of our ideas which all too often get stuck in old habits, hampering our creativity.
Since Berend has never met anyone who is entirely happy with every single aspect of his life, he assumes that others would like to make a few changes, too. We are in the same boat, he says, and although I may know a lot about growing as a person, that doesn't mean I have all the answers.
The opposite is a lot closer to the truth : every answer we find also brings a hundred new questions - and that doesn't exactly make life easier if you are blessed with an insatiable curiosity.
If you want to be free from external restraints, accept and comply with the Universal Laws of Human Nature governing life - and do it voluntarily, otherwise life will force you. That's the best advice you can get if you want to avoid unnecessary suffering and be as happy as you can be on the stage you have chosen to play your role.
