Presentation on theme: "RITES OF PASSAGE SELF CULTURE GOD"— Presentation transcript:
1RITES OF PASSAGE SELF CULTURE GOD Let me Welcome you the ROP training course. I want to inform you what we hope to accomplish through this course of training. Our vision is that this course would educate African Americans to the information, skills and tools needed, as a group, to secure a prosperous future. It goes without saying (and hasn't been said enough) what our global and national experience has been and what things we should have learned. There are things we haven't collectively learned as a group. In todays society correcting some experiences is difficult and much work still remains to be accomplished, it would be shameful to wait another three or four generations to establish a common understanding of what we, individually and collectively, should know.Rites of Passage tries put the collective body of information into a package to establish a minimal common knowledge thread we all can adopt. A common philosophy can be understood that ‘the depth in which any one of us can fall, is the level in which any of us can fall’, therefore our attempt will be to raise the bottom level. Herein, if anyone should fall, it will be the result of choice, not circumstance. There are individuals in precarious situations, throughout our society, who need to hear these words. Some who are not in precarioussituations may find reaffirmation in these concepts, still others may find enlightenment. Whichever your peculiar status in recovery from the "peculiar society" please feel obliged to share these ideas with others.GOD
2DIVINE ORDER GOD SELF OTHERS A major emphasis of this course is to increase the knowledge of self. Knowing yourself in this emerging society is critical. Knowing yourself insures that life doesn't pass you by without taking notice of how significant you are. Believe me it will unless you’re standing to be counted. Life being subject to the march of time and progress is on a juggernaut treadmill that doesn’t halt unless significantly affected to do so. You need a deep appreciation of yourself to make that impact. Who you are and where you have come from to be here is imperative. To grasp this you must understand that none of use would be here without the significant sacrifices being made on our behalf to get us where we are, individually and as a people. I don't believe many would dispute what ever level of gratitude we have to show to our parent(s) for their sacrifice(s) and/or their struggle(s). To the many friends, neighbors, church members and teachers who all played a part in getting us here, wherever here may be for us today.This being our socialization (orientation) process, it lends itself toward the environment and culture you find yourself. Beyond this is God, our Lord, Creator, Manager and Motivator, without whose influence none of these people would have crossed our path. He has a plan for us all. He gave us these human gifts by design, not circumstance. Gifts to guide us in the awareness, knowledge and directions we need to go. Some influences may be qualified as bad, others invaluable, but all to bring us to a point of revelation of ourselves in Him.OTHERS
3THE MIRACLE INSIDE YOU FATHER SON HOLYGHOSTHOLY SPIRIT BODY SOUL Nelson Mandela has said….. "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, "who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't service the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you.We were born to make manifest the Glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us. It's in everyone, and as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."When we stop to reflect on who He is, His influence and intervention on our lives, culture, environment and realities; and who we are, regardless of our individual realities and situations, that the point we believe RITES OF PASSAGE helps us to get a grasp on that reality, existence and our significance in relationship to life and living. These become our three objectives in Rites of Passage Training.
4JEHOVAH, LORD GOD TSIDKENU - Our Righteousness MIKADDESH - Who SanctifiedRAPHA - Our HealerNISSI - Our Victory BannerSHALOM - The Ever Present LordJIREH - Who Sees and ProvidesELOHIM - Almighty CreatorADONAI - Lord, Our MasterSABAOTH - Lord of Hosts (War Lord)ELYON - Most HighEL SHADDAI - Who Nourishes, Supplies, SatisfiesROHI - Lord, Our ShepherdThe one consistent factor of our entire universe is a delicate, precarious balance of all things, particularly, the relationship to the creator. Balance is the key word. One must maintain their reverence, respect and fear of this awesome being whose word is a mighty creative force. He is omniscient, omnipresent and omnipresent and yet benevolent, loving and divinely human. One must maintain their humility with Him, yet knowledge of self as a creation predestined for leadership. Subservient to no man, yet serving all in exemplifying the qualities of character He has endowed us. The balance is to not think of ourselves more highly that we should, or more lowly than we are.In that respect, we revere His greatness and the honor of our selection to be a part of His creation. He is our Lord, Master and King. He is the supplier of all our wants and needs. He is our counselor and advocate. Our sword and shield. Our armor, buckler and breastplate. All that we are or ever will be is because He is. With Him we can do all things. Without Him all things we try to do flounder and fail. The balance must also be maintained in life, living, the pursuit of goals, objectives, desires. In making decisions for the conduct of our lives. And particularly for the wisdom to live life well and prosperously.
5PERSONAL ORDER SPIRIT SOUL BODY Three areas we must help achieve a firm grasp is:There is a Miracle Inside YouBringing Our the Best in You: The Miracle Mix andBecoming A Whole PersonIt must be understood there is a Divine Order in everything. That divine order starts and ends with God, as author and creator of our lives. Thou shalt love the Lord, Thy God with all thy heart, thy soul, mind and existence. Learn to love Him with every thought, action, word and deed. In keeping that divine order in relationship to him, everything else we desire in life and living comes into existence in significant ways. Secondly, Thou shalt love thy neighbor s thyself. No serious help, relationship or assistance can suceed toward another without a corresponding love of yourself. That's how we do for others what we'd have them do for us.The primary reason for Rites of Passage is to orient the supplicant in the development of qualities which will facilitate their success in life. Self concept, image, preservation are key attributes to be developed. However these must be firmly founded in the knowledge of ones culture which provide a root of individual. This may include family, extended family, neighborhood, city, state or country. This answers a fundamental question of who we are and where are we headed as a group.No concept of development can be achieved without a well developed knowledge of the creator. Unlike other theorists and philosophers, Rites of Passage holds to the divine creator and creation; in whose image and likeness we aspire to emulate and represent in this temporal existence.BODY

God has given me this day to use as I will.I can waste it - or use it for good, but whatever I do today is important, because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.I want today to be for gain, and not loss; good and not evil; success, and not failure in order that I shall not regret the price I have paid for it.

34POWER OF WINNING I AM’sI AM AWARE, ALIVE, AND A LEARNING HUMAN BEING WITH AN INCREASING AWARENESS OF MYSELF, MY JOB AND MY WORLD.I AM A WORTHY HUMAN BEING, ENJOYING A DEEP-DOWN FEELING OF VALUE AND SELF-WORTHI AM IN CONTROL OF MY ACTIONS AND REACTIONS TO LIFES SITUATIONS.I AM MOTIVATED TOWARD THAT WHICH I MOST DESIREI AM /EXPECT THE VERY BESTI AM FEELING THE JOY OF ACCOMPLISHMENT AS I ACHIEVE MY GOAL(S)I AM DISCIPLINED TO PRACTICE MY ADVANCED LEARNING SIMULATION EACH AND EVERY DAY.I AM A TOTAL PERSON, LEADING A WELL BALANCED LIFEI AM A WARM, FRIENDLY WINNER WHO ENJOYS BEING WITH AND COMMUNICATING WITH OTHER WINNERS.
35SELF-AWARENESSWinners are aware of their world and all it has to offer.Positive self-awareness is knowing who you are, what you believe in, the role in life and work you are presently fillingYou have been selling yourself short all your life.You have the opportunity to experience more environmental, physical, and mental abundance than you are presently experiencing.Positive self-awareness is opening your eyes to the possibilities and alternatives available.Change your attitude and your environments will change automatically
36SELF-AWARENESSWinners are aware of their world and all it has to offer.Positive self-awareness is knowing who you are, what you believe in, the role in life and work you are presently fillingYou have been selling yourself short all your life.You have the opportunity to experience more environmental, physical, and mental abundance than you are presently experiencing.Positive self-awareness is opening your eyes to the possibilities and alternatives available.Change your attitude and your environments will change automatically
37SELF-ESTEEMSelf-esteem is the deep-down, inside-the-skin feeling of your own self-worth.You realize that liking yourself and accepting yourself are not necessarily egotistical.You know that you are unique, one of a kind. There has never been nor ever will be anyone exactly like you.Positive self-esteem means accepting yourself, totally and unconditionally, fullyrealizing you have strengths and weaknesses, good points and bad, positive and negative qualities.To establish true self-esteem, you need to concentrate on your positive attributes, your good qualities, your successes.Each and every person is important. Nobody is more important than anyone else.
38SELF-ESTEEMWhen someone criticizes you, you understand that he or she is criticizing your behavior, not you. In other words you don’t have to take it personally.When someone compliments you, simply say, "Thank you."You know when to say, "I'm sorry,” “I made a mistake," and "I forgive,”Humility is recognizing and emphasizing the value in others. It is not degrading yourself or minimizing your own worth.You are an incredible creation. Look at your assets:A mind that thinks at the rate of 800 words per minuteEyes with 100 million receptorsEars with 24,000 fibers500 muscles200 bones7 miles of nerve fiber60,000 miles of blood vesselsa heart that pumps more than 1,600 gallons of blood each day500,000 touch detectorsYou understand that the self-management skill of positive self-esteem is an important key to your professional success.
39SELF-CONTROLWe are emotional human beings. Our emotions seem to take control sometimes. Acknowledging this and understanding how to control your emotions will make life easier.At the root of a distressful situation is often a dominant need.When our needs aren't met, we often become uncomfortable, upset, angry, or confusedUnderstanding our needs can be the beginning of positive self-control.According personal responsibility for our attitudes and actions will give us positive self-control.Our goal is to erect a Statue of Responsibility.
40SELF-CONTROLWe are emotional human beings. Our emotions seem to take control sometimes. Acknowledging this and understanding how to control your emotions will make life easier.At the root of a distressful situation is often a dominant need.When our needs aren't met, we often become uncomfortable, upset, angry, or confusedUnderstanding our needs can be the beginning of positive self-control.According personal responsibility for our attitudes and actions will give us positive self-control.Our goal is to erect a Statue of Responsibility.
41SELF-CONTROLThe person who admits a mistake and says "I'm sorry" is accepting personal responsibility.Qualifying phrases such as "If only…” creates weakness.Everything you do is habit. Your habits are formed over many years and take time to break. Determine which losing habits you want to eliminate and strive to develop winning habits.One of the best ways to break a bad habit is to replace it with a good one. Rather than trying to force out the old bad habit, concentrate your energy on developing the new habit, which eventually will replace the old.Life is a "do-it-to-myself program,” and take the credit and the blame for my position.Positive self-control is a self-management skill, which, when developed, puts you in control of your career and environment.
42SELF-MOTIVATIONA motive is that which is within an individual which incites him or her to action.Fear is the powerful negative motivator that restricts, tightens, panics, forces, and defeats.Desire is the strong positive motivator that attracts, reaches, opens, directs, and encourages.Our lives are controlled largely by the way we talk to ourselves, that is, by our self-talk.Winners see the rewards of success in advance; they do not fear the penalties of failure.Losers express built-in excuses by saying "I can't" and "I have to" instead of "I can" and "I want to."
43SELF-MOTIVATIONThere is no such thing as a stress-free life. A life without stress would really be no life at all.Winners know how to respond positively to stress. They use it to their advantage rather than being controlled by it.It is not possible to move away from the reverse of an idea; your actions will be controlled by your currently dominant thought.What do you fear? Determine your fears and start to do the things you fear to do. Action will minimize and ultimately eliminate your fears.Positive self-motivation is dissatisfaction with the status quo or a desire for change.Positive self-motivation is a self management skill which will move you in a positive direction.
44SELF-EXPECTATIONThe single most outwardly identifiable trait of a winning human being is positive self-expectation, which is pure and simple optimism.You may or may not get what you deserve in life, but you almost always get what you expect from life.Winners expect a good job, financial stability, a nice home, good, friends, ,success, and good health.Losers expect such occurrences as the loss of job, bankruptcy, a dull evening, bad service, failure, and ill health.The study of psychosomatic medicine the relationship between the mind and the body and how each affects the other-indicates that the body manifests what the mind harbors.
45SELF-EXPECTATIONAll people have germs, but not all people become ill, instead, the cause of disease is closely linked to people’s reactions to life's situations.Winners in all walks of life are consistent in their ability to do a good job, and they set out to prove themselves correct.One of the best ways to develop positive self-expectancy is to use positive self- talk all day every day..Nobody likes to be around negative pessimistic, skeptical losers. They repel othersPeople are attracted to optimistic, enthusiastic, cheerful winners.Give yourself an extra dose of unqualified, burning optimism. It is the elixir of lifePositive self-expectancy is a self-management skill which can positively affect every situation.
46SELF-IMAGEUnderstanding your self-image is the key to understanding your behavior. When you change your self-image, your personality and behavior changes accordingly.What you "see" is what you get. Who you "feel" is who you are.Individuals behave according to their perceptions of reality, not according to actual reality. It is not what you "are" that holds you back; It's "what you think you are not."Each of us has developed a self-image concerning every talent, every characteristic, every performance.'Your self-image dwells in the subconscious level of thinking.The conscious level of thinking acts as a "judge," it collects information from. the environment, stores in the memory bank, and makes rational decisions.
47SELF-IMAGEThe subconscious level of thinking acts as a "robot;" it is responsible for autonomic body control, such as respiration and circulation.The subconscious "robot" controls the conscious "judge" level of thinking. action frequently takes place without consultation with the "judge," but no action ever takes place without reference to the "robot."Scientists agree that the human nervous system cannot tell the difference between an actual experience and vividly imagined.You can program your own self image by imagining yourself as the person you want to become.Creating a positive self-image is a critical self-management skill which can make the difference between being productive and non-productive.
48SELF-DIRECTION Winners have a game plan for life. Positive self-direction means knowing where you are going.The human system is goal-seeking by design.This system constantly monitors self-talk and environmental feedback about the goal and adjusts self-image setting in its subconscious robot achievement mechanism.Every decision necessary to reach a particular goal is made by your self-motivated system.Winners are people with a definite purpose in life.What kinds of goals are you committed to?We all have the potential and opportunity for success in life. it takes just as much energy and effort to fail as does to succeed and live the good life.
49SELF-DIRECTIONWhat do you stand for? If you don’t stand for something, you'll fall for anything.Most people spend. more time planning a party, studying the newspaper, or making a Christmas list than they spend planning their lives.The secret to positive self-direction is in establishing; a clearly defined goal, writing it down, and then concentrating on it morning and night, with words, pictures and emotions, as if you had already achieved it.The self-management skill of positive self-direction will focus your energy on specific goals and objections.
50SELF-DISCIPLINE Self-discipline requires practice. Self-discipline begins where lip service ends.You may be motivated by desire; you may feel in control; you may expect to go to the moon; you may imagine yourself on the moon. But you will never even get near the launching pad without persistent self-disciplineSelf-discipline alone can make or break a habit. Self-discipline can effect a permanent change in your self-image and in you.Self-discipline is doing within when you are without.Positive self-discipline demands that you commit to memory those thoughts and emotions that will override current information stored in the memory bank
51SELF-DISCIPLINEYou must practice simulation training, that is, you must imagine and visualize what you want to be.Advanced Learning is one method for simulation training.We learned how to walk, talk, dive, type, ski; and to perform many other skills by practicing them. Isn't it worth it to practice simulation training by means of Advanced Learning in order to master self-discipline?Everything is habit forming if it is repeated.The self-management skill of positive self-discipline is simply practicing and simulating successful coming events.
52SELF-DIMENSIONAcquiring a positive self-dimension requires looking beyond yourself for meaning in life.A winner puts it all together, He or she is a total person, which is a. rare human being indeed.Self-dimension takes the Psychology of Winning beyond the self and into the universe.Winning means extending a strong hand to one who is reaching or groping or, just hanging on. Winners know there will be no lasting peace on earth until there's a piece of bread in every mouth.Self-dimension starts with the inner circle - the family.Winners live well-rounded lives. They spend time developing their most important relationships,
53SELF-DIMENSIONPositive self-dimension means having a “double win" attitude, "If I help you win, then I win.”Winners go beyond the horoscopes and stars and fortune tellers prophesies, beyond the do-it-yourself advice, beyond the plastic surgeons knife. Instead, they. live each precious, golden moment as if it were their last, building for the future and learning from the past.Positive self-dimension is being in harmony with the divine order that shapes the entire universe.Because winners understand the mortality of their own bodies, they are able to age gracefully.Developing positive self-dimension is a self-management skill which affects all areas of your life.
54SELF-PROJECTIONWinners in life are walking examples of positive self-projection. They project an aura; they have an unmistakable presence; they have a charisma that is disarming, radiant and magnetic.Positive self-projection depends upon creating a positive first impression, knowing you'll never have a second chance.Studies have shown a definite correlation between looking good and success in life. A recent Harvard study pointed out that people who are made to feel unattractive by themselves and their peers tend to suffer from feelings of loneliness, rejection, and isolation.Winners can project success without flaunting it.
55SELF-PROJECTIONPositive self-projection means introducing yourself first when you meet people, saying “Hello, my name is…”Look straight into the eyes of the person who is talking.Positive self-projection is learning how to listen to others.Winners exhibit an "I'll make them glad they talked to me" attitude.Positive self-projection is being service-oriented, not self oriented.Project your very best self every day in the way you walk, talk, listen, and react.Positive self-projection is a self-management skill others can benefit from when around you.

189Nelson MandelaOur deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t service the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you.We were born to make manifest the Glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us. It’s in everyone, and as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
