Levels of Change Part One


Foundations Class #2

Levels of Change

Bob Hamp

Part One

Starts with two stories...

1. True Story. He had driven out to help his aunt who had a flat tire. He used a metric lug wrench on an American car, it wouldn't work so he forced it, stripping out all the lugs. He used the wrong tools to try to fix the problem and trying harder made it worse.

2. Potty Training Parable. You have an infant and shortly after you realize that the child needs his/her diaper changed. So you change it and it gets dirty again, and you change it, and it gets dirty again... Constant change but nothing changes. Then you get a higher order of change. Potty training. Once the child is potty trained you no longer have to change the messes anymore. A higher order of change has over-ridden the former things.

It is this type of change we are referring to with "Levels" of change. Not levels as in: When I pass 1st grade I will be in 2nd grade. It's not linear change, progressive change, rather it is higher order. Each order builds on itself and affects the order below. Ultimately if you achieve the highest level of change the other levels will fall in line with that.

The first level of change is: Environment, and Experience through Environment. 


 I just need a better job, better spouse, better house, better church, bigger nose, smaller nose... I just need to be taller or shorter....

The fallacy is that if we could just change the things outside of us, everything in our lives would work. Where ever you go, there you are.

"If we believe that changing our environment will have anything to do with setting us free we are already in bondage to that belief." Paul sat in a prison cell in absolute freedom. Circumstance cannot dictate your freedom or lack thereof. Freedom is becoming who you were created to be, regardless of the circumstance you are in.

Back in AA we used to call this the Geographical Cure.

      Embracing Grief - The process God gave you to heal

      The following was a question from a Widow/Widower support group I belong to:

      What is the most important thing you've learned about grief?
      My Answer:

      Grief is a process to be embraced and walked through. 
      Your physical brain has developed protein structures (memories and muscle memories) that tell your body to react in a certain way.

      These structures tell the leg to move when walking and they tell the body and mind to be a certain way at home with your spouse, certain expected norms.

      Just as when a Vet loses a limb, a widow(er) loses something much more profound, their other half.

      The new treatment for those who lose limbs is to activate the new nerve endings by rubbing them frequently with various materials (hard, soft, scratchy, smooth, hot, cold) so the brain can learn the new nerve endings. This helps alleviate "Phantom Limb Syndrome".

      God gave us Widows(ers) the gift of Grief to help us recognize and process these protein structures in the brain as they relate to our …

      Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

      Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see

      The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

      The background leading up to this morning:


      On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…

      Research: Erase Hard Drive/ Thumb Drive

      2: DegaussingHard drives are nothing more than bottles of data held in place by magnetic glue. By removing the magnetic glue, you can create a breakdown of the underlying bits and bytes and scramble them in a way that's pretty tough to recover from. If the degaussing device used is good enough, you'll destroy all of the bits and bytes at the user level as well as the low-level formatting that makes it function as a drive. (If you're serious about data security, you'll use a powerful degausser.)
      Although degaussing might be looked at as a way of simply erasing a drive, it's actually a destructive mechanism, though it's not nearly as fun to watch as a shredder.
      Powerful degaussers will also render inoperable a drives servo motors and will damage the spindle motor of the drive. It truly is a paperweight when you're done.
      A really good degausser is expensive, but it doesn't cost as much as a really good shredder, and it might be enough for your needs. Also, it…
