Final Edits Before the Book Release!

Hey everyone! Olivia here. Kyle and I are reading his upcoming book cover-to-cover before we send the final edits to the publisher. We’re so excited! Finally, everyone can access his philosophies on the levels of consciousness in one place. A lot of personal development teachers tell you about the result you need to achieve. Few, however, actually show you how. That is what I love about Kyle and his teaching style. This book, “Life at Altitude”, not only tells you about Inquiry Method and its principles but also shows you how to apply those principles to your life.

The following is an excerpt from the book that spoke to me. It is about giving to yourself before you give to others. It is about true giving without expectation of return on your investment. I’m applying these principles in my life right now and it’s harder than I thought it would be but it’s also been a huge gift. It’s freeing me up to start putting beautiful attention on myself, my wants, and my desires and in turn be able to love others more fully.

I hope that this passage speaks to you on your life journey and that it helps you create a deeper bond with your loved ones and cultivate a greater connection to self.

Most people I work with initially have pretty empty reservoirs. They keep giving and giving, trying to give enough so that others will fill them up in return. This is the game we are all taught to play: “If you give enough you will get it back.” I don’t find that this game works very well and it is based on a false premise, the idea that others can fill you up.

In Life at Altitude, the new game is called “Fulfilled to Overflowing.” In this game, it is my job to fill myself up, to fill up my own tank of aliveness, to take care of myself, and to give myself all I need for a full tank of love and vitality for myself.

In this game, I take care of my needs, and I am not waiting for others to see my value and do it for me. I may do this by giving myself time, doing things that fulfill me, even asking others for what I need so that I can be filled. In doing so, I am taking full, 100% responsibility for my tank being full. This means not blaming others when my tank is not full. This includes the work you do at Levels I-III.

Once my tank is full, once my needs are met at Levels I-III, what happens then is my tank starts to overflow, and at Level IV I have more than I need of everything, in particular love.  From this perspective, I can give abundantly from my excess without tapping into my reserve.  I never have to tap into my reserve because I am always filling myself up with what I need.

Also from this perspective, what I give is a pure gift, with no recompense required. I am giving away my excess, and I don’t need anybody to fill me. This abundance and generosity is a truly glorious position to come from.

It takes practice and focus to do this; you have to be attentive to your own tank first. Our culture calls this selfish, but I have never seen anyone who is truly generous giving from an empty tank. When we give from an empty tank, we always want something back.

True generosity comes from filling your own tank and giving freely from the abundance of love you generate.

Breaking out of the cultural trap of giving yourself away takes courage and intent.

What is your first step toward “Fulfilled to Overflowing”?
