Green to Yellow

24 posts in this topic

Hey Maslow pyramid crawlers,

Any resources to integrate yellow?

I lived through green, now I party like green but  re-organize my Journal and create systems for further development like yellow.

Nah jokes aside,

I am at this point where I need novelty, feel stuck, I have tier 2 thinking long time already, but instead of merely valueing excellence, I want to become a master.

@UDT Start by reading "The Tao of Systems Thinking" and studying Spiral Dynamics (read the original book + re-watch Leo's vids on Spiral D.).

Basically what you really wanna do is "zoom out" and get higher/more holistic/more integral perspectives on how the world works. Try to see the systems in everything.

Wait, have you tried watching Leo's vid on stage Yellow and studying the humans he provided as Yellow examples??? Or maybe yesterday's video???

I keep forgetting that most folk aren't here for growth...

Once one is centered in Tier2, they are essentially free of ideology and attachment to beliefs. A whole new world opens up to explore. Most of my Yellow level insights have come through learning about different perspectives and self exploration. For example, integrating different perspectives into a more holistic perspective. For example, many people put science, art and spirituality into different categories. Yet, how can we connect the dots? What is the science within spirituality? What is the art within science and the science with art?

My favorite Yellow-level thinker was Leonardo Da Vinci. There is a wonderful book called "How to think like Leonardo Da Vinci" which essentially describes a Yellow mindset. For example, it addresses what is intelligence? What is genius? What is creativity? How are these inter-related?  

Leonardo was not a genius in several different categories. He was a genius in one category that integrated what others percieved as separate categories. A hallmark of a Yellow level thinker.

@Serotoninluv Is the book complex to read? Sounds right up my street. 

It is written at the level of someone transitioning to Yellow. There were lots of times I paused and thought "Whoa, I never thought about it like that."

The book has a lot of Da Vinci's mode of thinking/being. Yet, it also had a lot about the essence of the Renaissance, Da Vinci's personal life and history. I liked that stuff too, yet at times I wanted more pure Yellow level action.

I'm here to inflate my ego. If I actually wanted to grow then I would meditate for four hours a day. It would actually be a blessing to be banned from this forum (though it would hurt my feelings in the short-term).

@Serotoninluv  Fair enough. Thanks for your honest review. I'm currently balls deep (lol) into The Nature of Consciousness by Rupert Spira so once I've finished that I'll definitely take a look :)

Thanking you

Unfortunately, Yellow doesn't sell very well.

It's much easier and more profitable to sell get-rich-quick schemes, ideology and dogma.

Systems thinking, relativism and multiple perspectives are just not what western society is ready for yet.

Remember that Yellow is two stages above the western centre of gravity, as Leo calls it. So, it's not surprising that Yellow isn't a very crowed place.

I think the true genius of yellow unfolds when you see the same resources that you always did, but you start to sort of connect the dots and begin to see something which your weren't able to see before.

Yep. As well, I see some capitalism creeping into Green. Fancy yoga mats and outfits, crystals, wheatgrass shots, meditation apps, jewelry, a Prius, Berkenstock sandles etc. It can all be part of a Green Identity. 

Yet, one can't buy or sell a Yellow mindset and mode of being. It is beyond self identity and involves years of work, practice and direct experience that can't be bought or sold.

I'm very interested in learning about Leonardo Da Vinci more closely, and am looking for book recommendations.
I found there's already one in this thread, but I had read a good review on another written by Walter Isaacson.

Has anybody read that one? Any other recommendations?

Update: 

Man what a ride. Im changing like crazy. Thanks for the advice given, "You wanna zoom out" is exactly what it is. See the systems in the world.

Basically 2 Words of Advice I can give right now. (Perspective you speaking to yourself)

1. You have no idea what your potential is.

2. Don´t question me, Don´t write it down, Just do it.

3. Have fun

@UDT Yes indeed. Just wait until the default state of mind is nonlinear, interconnected systemic . People begin asking you “Can you please try to make sense?”. 😆
