Quantum Design Ladder of Creativity and Consciousness

Want to get clear about where are you on the Stone Ladder of Creativity and Consciousness? An insightful process to measure aliveness, creativity and conscious living. This is not a formula but a helpful tool for a more accurate reality check. A sincere desire to grow and expand must begin with an assessment of where we are and how we authentically respond to life. Responsibility in our system is the ability to respond fully to what is being given to you. Think of it as your overall desire and will to create.

How do you normally and typically respond to life? Rate yourself! Do not rate yourself based on where you'd like to be or wish you were.

So what's your number? Calculate the average rating.
Life does not start to get remotely fascinating and exciting until you hit 8 but very fun starting at 7 and occasionally at 6. You can move up the ladder or down the ladder depending on who and what is around you for a period of time. A town, country or even a company and a relationship can be rated just the same using this scale.

Anyone 8 and above can lift others up provided others are willing to shift their patterns of behavior honestly. The big shifting factors are: Awareness, Personal Integrity, Commitment to yourself, Participation only with things you love and love you back, Contribution is seen as built-in, Forgiveness is no longer a notion you are interested in, Openness, Presence and a Willingness to Transcend what is in your way. If you are a 7 and your partner a 5, you will start going down unless you become aware and start setting some serious boundaries.
