Anything and anyone that talks about the companies or industries that provide all the funding for "science" are sensitive topic for people whose job security depends on their compliance in toeing the interests of these industries or companies.
Being able to tell the self apart from other things, the not-self.
You are not your feelings, not your thoughts, not your history. Not even what you do, or what you have, or what you have achieved!
I didn't realize that this is such a big issue, collapsing all these and calling it "you".
This is the source of unclarity, and ultimately it is the source of the delusional self and misery. Utter misery.
What am I talking about?
One aspect of clarity is to be able to tell the person from their actions. The person from their feelings. The person from their story or history. The person from what they have done. The person from everything else...
It seems that at a low level of clarity (low vibration) this isn't obvious.
A lot of why's are answered here... why you can't get well, why you are not happy, etc.
People are the highest value in the universe. Why? Because they are able to be all levels of values, the thinking mind (systemic), the extrinsic (create tools, cook food, provide pleasure), and the intrinsic.
You live, predominantly on one level, and value what is on that level most.
If you admire the butterfly, then you have low vibration... A butterfly person will not be enamored with a butterfly...
The "I don't like" "I don't want" list, seems to be a very reliable measure of the size of your world and thus your vibration. (You may call it your frequency, or your vibrational frequency... but what the words indicate isn't real... your vibration is better defined in this article.)
When you have low vibration (under 200), the size of your world is tiny, mostly about you, your person, how you feel, etc.
Here is an article that has truth in it, but not the whole truth. The article is a typical psychological take on a human condition... and is incomplete.
Here is an example of what a 7% truth value is, and what is missing to make it acceptable... and no, a 7% truth value is not acceptable.
I am going to attempt to add some of my own discoveries... to bring it up to a higher, hopefully much higher level of truth value...
First: read the article. I felt horrible reading it, because it made me feel bad about myself. Not many people consider me good company... so I definitely don't qualify to being the type of person everyone wants to know.
At the same time my fixed mindset is only 7%... so what's going on?
You/I spend most of our lives trying to fix something that never happened. That was never factually true. Even though you keep telling the story as if it were true.
Some people call these demons... even though there are no demons... but nevertheless, using the expression: fighting your demons is very accurate, if you don't believe that demons are entities. There are no entities in the visible or invisible Universe.
