There’s no ‘no’ in reality. ‘No’ can be masked.

Like saying it is missing. Like need. Like want. Like missing.

All those only exist in language.

The crucial distinction I teach is reality. Reality as opposed to the mind, the imagination, the meaning making machine.

Today I realized that inversion, the different thinking methodology is needed. because often what is there is what is the problem. I’ll explain.

Humanity is a piling upon piles hoarding type of species. A lot like squirrels. Continue reading “There’s no ‘no’ in reality. ‘No’ can be masked.”

What is the connection between respect and appreciation?

What is the connection between respect and appreciation? Both respect and appreciation are spiritual capacities… states of being.

I am having a lot of insights lately. Of course, it was predictable: I am running an experimental workshop: it is driving up the questions.

When you have questions, relevant questions, you are going to get insights. You ask irrelevant questions? you’ll get no insights.

Anyway, the circumstance this morning was this: I accidentally double-paid for a course. Sent a support request to get a refund, and they answered that their policy was to talk to me, to make sure I was who I said I was. Continue reading “What is the connection between respect and appreciation?”

Feeling lonely? Are you feeling your own feelings?

SuntowerAre your feelings yours?

I had a realization a few minutes ago: Every summer I am attacked by this strong feeling that unless I have a life-partner, I am alone, and I have an empty life.

It comes fortified with bouts of depression, bouts of misery, bouts of fear, bouts of anxiety.

Today was really horrid.

Then I got a flash of insight: what if this is not mine at all? What if this has never been mine?

The dominant forceful way you are killing life.

If you pay attention: you won’t want to read this post. You won’t want to know what keeps your vibration low. You are scanning the internet, the horizon, the people around you for feedback: that you are already all you can be.

This ‘not wanting to‘ is essentially what I am talking about in this article, this insistence, this forcefulness.

I wrote this article in 2016. Humanity has gotten worse sence. More forceful…

I don’t want to… I don’t like it… arrgh, nooo!

A spiritual practice like no other… Are you doing it?

What makes the ‘Stranger than Fiction‘ type of narration work like gangbusters to get you out of your head?

Stranger-better-than-Fiction-will-ferrell-272971_1024_768To my surprise not many people take advantage of the opportunity to watch a good movie and steal a habit that can be called a spiritual practice.

Steal a spiritual practice that can take you from a victim of your mind, to as near a human being as you can get in a few months’ time.

The movie, Stranger than Fiction is a really good movie.

but the best part of the movie is that the style of the voice that is speaking. The voice that the hero, Will Ferrell dude hears.

The way that voice talks is the exact type of inner speaking that you hear when you speak from the Witness’s position.

Hearing the little voice in your head from the Witness/Observer position is is heaven on earth. Lovely. You can even be entertained by it… I am.

Resistance, avoidance, flexibility… pushing on a string

I have an inquiry to engage in, a puzzle to solve, so instead of doing it in my head, I’ll do it in this article…

The puzzle is resistance. Resistance to guidance, resistance to changing your mind, changing your attitude, changing your behavior, changing where you look from. CHANGE.

To adapt. To using your intelligence. After all, the measure of intelligence is the ability to change. Continue reading “Resistance, avoidance, flexibility… pushing on a string”

Why so many of my subscribers are full of crap

Why so many of my subscribers are full of crap

In an elementary school in California the administration was warned several times that a 6-year old brought a gun to school and was threatening the other children with it.

The administration did nothing. They didn’t call the police, they didn’t lock the school down… They did nothing.

The child, finally, shot his teacher. Continue reading “Why so many of my subscribers are full of crap”

Reality doesn’t care about beliefs. So why do you?

You can make-believe it happens, or pretend that something’s true.
You can wish or hope or contemplate a thing you’d like to do,
But until you start to do it, you will never see it through
‘Cause the make-believe pretending just won’t do it for you. ~ Mr. Rogers Neighborhood

Children get it that make-believe is not satisfying, so maybe you can too.

It is about reality vs unreality. Unreality: imagination, make-believe, and should that is as unsatisfying as eating broth with a fork. Continue reading “Reality doesn’t care about beliefs. So why do you?”

The role of thinking, mindset, attitude in life and death

When I do the health measurements for people, the last step is to see what causes or will likely cause big troubles if nothing changes.

The first of such causes (thinking/emotional errors, attitude) is what I want to talk about in this article… because I am just going through, or have just gone through something that even I didn’t expect, despite all my experience to the opposite.

I have been waiting to die.

I felt it inevitable. My mother died at my age… so I will too.

Yesterday was the day I was exactly, to the day as old as my mom was when she died. And I didn’t die. Continue reading “The role of thinking, mindset, attitude in life and death”

More about Desire, And why desire, normally, is a plague

Desire is a mental energy. And it is impossible to desire something, something you have not first imagined or seen.

So desire is comparing an image of something and the way it is in reality. That gap is what is called desire.

Now, desire has this imagination element, that shows the object of desire, the finished ‘product’ as if it were already reality. And in that mistake, in that mirage lies the mischief. Continue reading “More about Desire, And why desire, normally, is a plague”
