Of course people are sentient, and one could argue that it is not Life but the “spark” in people that is doing the sentient-seeming actions. I don’t know enough, I don’t see enough, I am puzzled… I am looking.
What am I talking about?
People seem to be taught, repeatedly, what they need to learn and haven’t learned.
When I write an article, when I give instructions, when I teach, what people do is as diverse as if I told them all different things… even though I said exactly the same thing. It could be my intonation: they were on the call at the same time, or read the same article, and yet.
You listen approximately, hear more of your commentary and interpretation than what is actually said, and then you follow your commentary, not what was said. And, to boot, you never actually take the time to understand what the words really mean. Your vocabulary is approximate… and you may not even know it.
Ever feel like you are just the thumb Source needs to get things done? Things that need a thumb… Physical things…
I used to have a cat. And cats teach you about yourself things you never wanted to know, like how insignificant and useless you are.
But one thing they also teach you that has served me well is teaching me that I have thumbs. Opposable thumbs. And in spite of their contempt for me otherwise, I can be useful because I can operate the can opener.
And god… whatever god is, is a lot like my cat. It needs a human with opposing thumbs to get things done in the physical universe. God doesn’t have a thumb. God is an energy, in all, through all, it is omnipotent… but lacking physical manifestation, it lacks a thumb… lol. So, us, humans, are here to make things happen.
One of the behaviors that can be observed with people who procrastinate is that they are also reactive… not proactive.1
I will talk about that in another article… but for now I am more interested in another one of the “hidden in plain sight” hidden dynamics is: where, on what you are focusing.
Duality is firmly present, omnipresent, in reality where it concerns you. You either do one thing or another. Even when seemingly you are doing both… because you can only do one thing at a time. Because your attention is like a vector, it can be placed on one thing at a time.
You can either be defensive or offensive.
And you are, in your behavior either one or the other… And your mood, your life experience, your results follow as surely as night follows day.
It is also follows, that you either live out of fear or out of adventure.
It’s really hot here. I don’t use air conditioning, and I don’t sweat. So I am really hot. And I am still digesting a lot of things… and it’s not a good idea to write about half baked stuff… or not often.
I don’t feel like writing. But I feel like telling you something, so I whipped out my headset and made an audio… a podcast if you will.
I learned this method from MY mentor, Robert Plank… you can talk a lot faster than you can write… and it gets you over the hump…
It was inspired by this article and this TED talk.
I have been trying to dig deeper and deeper into the morass of human misery so that I can dig you out of there. I have tools, but I want more. And more. And more.
It is not about getting myself out of misery: I am already 70% “clear” of misery… and that is a blissful place, but it took me 34 years, so far, and I don’t know many people who are willing to work on themselves that long… I did it because I was soooo miserable.
So I have been looking at modalities, methods, systems, that look hopeful. Methods that their truth value is decent.
Arthur Barry was described by Time as “The slickest second-story man in the East,” truly one of the most famous jewel thieves of all times. 1
In his years of crime, he committed as many as 150 burglaries and stole jewels valued between $5 and $10 million.
He seldom robbed from anyone not listed in the Social Register and often did his work in… get this…
