First and foremost, before we begin this discussion, the truth must come out: Vessel is not yellow. Vessel is gold. It represents the idea of a golden tomorrow, full of promise and possibilities. (Vessel is sensitive, so we must be truthful). But now, with that out of the way, we can finally begin!
An important concept of Vessel’s is the idiom “As Without, So Within”. So it’s not only important to make sure that you’re healing the world and creating sustainable goodness for the environment, your social and professional circles, good causes, and your various relationships; it’s also important that you create sustainable and positive habits for your own sake — taking care of yourself and most especially your reputation. Reputation is how we relate to each other, especially when we don’t know the person we’re aiming to relate to. In a sense, it’s what causes prejudice (beyond, ya know, ignorance, laziness, and being bigoted): people make assumptions based on what they’ve heard. If they hear only positive things, every door is open. If they hear negative things, you’ll see a much uglier side of them. Your reputation is very easily tarnished and takes much building up (human nature is funny that way…like so many things in life, it take a second to break but a lifetime to make). But it’s totally worth the effort. And the good news is your reputation can always be improved.
So yesterday you fed the hungry bloke who needed food (good Heart you’ve got there!). But today you’re going to teach him how to fish. We know, we know—it takes time from our busy schedules, but otherwise all you’re doing is teaching that person to be a freeloader. Your job, regarding Vessel, is to create a method or tool that easily teaches people how to improve their lives. Vessel is Level 3 exclusive; it can’t be earned for any other level.
Vessel is about creating sustainable improvement. If you own a business, make sure it is a vessel for productive, positive action. Make sure it impacts the environment in such a way that it improves and doesn’t have to hide behind gimmicky ads. Make sure you do things to improve common welfare. Find ways to make sure that the global community is taken care of. If you are a non-for-profit, create ways to fund yourself! It’s not a good look, begging in order to help those in need—it just doesn’t make sense, regardless of how it traditionally has been done.
You need to share the change that you want to see.
