Q: What would improve if you and those around you expressed their whole selves? Have you ever injured your hand or foot or anywhere that affected your natural activity? If so, you know how long it can take to adjust. You may have also noticed how easily we take for granted things like using all our fingers, walking without pain or seeing out of both eyes. Without the usual full expression of your body even simple acts can seem difficult. Unfortunately, many of us work and live without fully expressing our mental and emotional abilities. Because of some wound, pain or fear we avoid certain areas and favor others. Our habits of daily behavior may seem natural but most of us struggle to achieve our Fully Expressed Genius. For example, using only our intellect instead of including our emotional reasoning will make our mind over-worked and our heart weakened. When using our whole selves while living and working we find that everything, simple or complex, seems much easier.

    Hello Foster,
    Once again it seems that you have brought to modern relevance one of the most important (and equally forgotten) admonitions in all of history. Throughout the scriptures we find the consistent use of the term ?wholehearted?, which is clearly akin to the context employed in your phase? whole-selves. Additionally, ancient scholars and military strategist such as Sun Tzu speak regularly of the concept of being fully aware of one?s senses and surrounding. Even the 2012 Super Bowl Champion NY Giants adopted the term ?ALL IN?, taken from the card game Poker and made it their modus operandi.
    In most cases the results are not only positive, but completely VICTORIOUS! Therefore, a reasonable response to your question could be? EVERYTHING! Everything of which I and the others around me connect our- (whole)-selves to would improve.
    However, the notion of employing one?s whole-self appears to be interestingly unusual and very difficult to do. What steps would you recommend to someone seeking to achieve this level of being (and doing)?
    Kevin
