| | Busting Loose from the Business Game
I wanted to start a new thread on this as I'm interested in the thoughts of those who've read both "Money Game" and "Business Game". I've just completed BG (read MG first back in December) and wanted to share some thoughts/comments and hear yours as well:
I would not attempt to read BG without first having read MG. While some of the content is the same, I don't feel the underlying subjective reality foundation is laid quite as thoroughly in BG as it is in MG, and there are far fewer "real life" examples given of the actual Busting Loose process in BG. I think if I had just picked up BG first I would have been highly confused.
Robert has redefined some of his metaphors (he uses LOTS of metaphors!) in BG and some of them I like. I do not like the "clouds" metaphor nearly as much as I liked the "eggs" metaphor in MG. Just personal preference I suppose, but I can't help but think of how clouds always seem to shift, and if I truly need to tunnel through all of them to find my ES, I'll never get there as things will be constantly shifting back into the space I just cleared.
This brings me to my biggest gripe with Robert, from MG and BG: He seems to be SO vested in things being hard, taking time, taking effort. It just doesn't resonate with me. Once you've got the enlightened idea of who you truly are then you should always be operating from that perspective, and why should it take thousands of repetitions of doing the Process to reach that same perspective? I like once and done better. Just my opinion, and truly this is the only part of his books that gives me pause (and discomfort...so yes, I have done the process on this feeling but there just doesn't seem to be anything there, no big aha! or source of power for me personally).
Finally, RS promises some extra chapters that got cut from BG, and you can get them, but to do so you first have to sign his mailing list. Just LAME, again IMHO.
