And if it makes sense, then it is Tree of Knowledge, then it fits in with all the stuff that's stored in your mind, and in society's collective mind, and it is 99% certain to be wrong.
The real intuitive guidance you get needs you to be disconnected from Mind, and be connected to All-of-It... and that, for most people, has been impossible.
Most people would benefit from this story:
I looked at his track record in business, and I found there a good indication, that his advice will be useful for me: if he says it's a good idea: then it is 99% certain that it will fail. Miserably. And if he says: hogwash, or something of that effect, then there is a good 50% chance that the idea can succeed.
Why? Because my friend made his decisions by "intuition", i.e. from what made sense to him.
Rule of thumb: If something makes sense, 90% chance that it doesn't work
In this day and age of proliferation of advice, "wisdom", quotes, and slogans, articles about what works and what doesn't, it is no wonder that most people can't find and lose their way, whether it is their health, their wealth, their relationships, their happiness is the question.
Couple that with the predominantly linear, two-bit way of thinking of a typical person unschooled and unpracticed in holding more than two bits of information 1 people expect a linear order of actions, a do this first, or more often: do this and you are done... like the doctor who says: take two tablets in the evening and call me in the morning...
Linear thinking is an attitude! An approach to life.
Most everything that is worth doing, worth working towards, health, wealth, integrity, happiness, is not linear and not push-button.
I talk to a lot of people, I coach a lot, and also get a lot of emails asking for advice, asking for a consulting session, and things like that. And I have a lot of people buy my activators, my remedies, come to ONE coaching session.
The two-bit, or linear approach to life
This two-bit approach to life is what is in common, and an almost total refusal of things being more complex than that is what is the common denominator.
Thought experiment: If you were the "Dark Side" and wanted to destroy humanity, would you not promote as a "world religion" a Tree of Life knowledge coupled with two bit thinking? You can even get it with two-bit thinking... lol, not funny. You can see that it would work, and it is working famously.
The gurus, who make money even if you don't, the gurus who make money even if you stay miserable, stay sick, stay poor, stay confused, anxiety ridden, ride this wave of two-bit madness... and you don't know why your life is working less and less every day. Are you amused? or are you angry?
Who I listen to
I listen to gurus, a very few, that make no sense... when something doesn't make sense, it has the potential to be true, accurate, and educational.
One of these "gurus" is Shane... and here is his podcast on why it is time to quit.
It also introduces, what I call Organizing Principle: the part you don't quit. The Organizing Principle you are willing to pursue till you die... but you are willing to quit the how... the individual directions, the individual actions.
Listen to Shane, and learn. I loved the way he worded the Organizing Principle.
