The Three Great Mysteries: air to a bird, water to a fish, mankind to himself
~ Hindu Proverb
We live in an age where, we could say, are poised to move our inquiry into areas where it could make a difference. Not yet... obviously.]
I say in every area of the mystery that we call life and Universe.
In health. In well-being. In climate change and caring for our planet. In evolution, genetics, and feeding all these people. In psychology. In human growth and self-actualization.
We are still on the surface, and everything you buy, everything you read, everything you can think is still not cause, and doing it won't make a difference... except...
Some ideas, some theories are closer to the source than others.
- Psychologists are the tip of the iceberg researchers: they and their whole science don't make a difference. 🙁
- Transformational technologies are a tad closer to the cause, but not much closer.
- Belief changers, law of attraction, manifesting people are as far as religion... wholly useless stuff.
This is why reading an awful lot, and believing none of it is useful. The second best, and much faster is to listen to someone who has read an awful lot, and can spit it back to you reasonably accurately.
And this person is Tai Lopez... I said reasonably accurately... I didn't say accurately. But if someone listens without believing a thing, with a wide enough cone of vision, and with a long view enough (time) that someone may be able to see connections that lead us closer to finding cause, where what we do actually makes a difference. The seed level.
I have been faithfully and with faith doing the steps of the 67 steps, for 16 months. Just finished my sixth round. You do need faith to be this faithful... lol.
I am watching with morbid fascination as words make zero difference in people's world view, in people's mindset.
I have made the Mindset book compulsory for my students. Beforehand I made the Feelings book compulsory.
And they all listen to Tai's 67 steps.
None of these made any significant difference. Moreover none of them made ANY difference for most.
This past Wednesday I did something unexpected: instead of making them listen to me, or making them read something, or making them listen to something, I asked them to commit to doing a spiritual process, and commit to doing it till they die.
Heavy, isn't it?
When someone says: I do, even if it is a wedding vow, they NEVER say, never really say: forever.
Commitments, promises are conditional. Once it is not convenient or not enjoyable, humans take it off like a garment. It's gone.
And so it has been with any "commitment" I have asked students to make.
This behavior is as close to the seed as I have ever gotten. The unwillingness to surrender "free will" to "your own will", to your "word".
I am seemingly going to digress... but no, I am bringing in another phenomenon, I just connected to this yesterday.
While I am doing that, keep in mind that the Bible talks about word... Hm... the word you resist, the word you violate every minute of every day.
OK, here is the other thread:
In Step 67, Tai talks about annihilating the amygdala.
The amigdala is the emotional center in the brain. Fear lives there. Memory based fear.
Here is a sentence from Wikipedia: Amigdala: Shown in research to perform a primary role in the processing of memory, decision-making, and emotional reactions, the amygdalae are considered part of the limbic system
Tai only deals with memory based fear, but I have a hunch that all memory based behavior is controlled by the amigdala.
They tie the young horse next to a highway with heavy truck traffic. A few hours a day.
After a month, and yes, it does take that long, the horse can tell that the noise of the heavy trucks is just noise... irrelevant. So no fear response... the amigdala "changed its mind" for that particular horse.
OK, back to the original thread:
The exercise I asked my students to commit to is a lot like the exercise young horses are asked to do.
If you close your eyes and listen, you'll hear all kinds of inner voices, agreeing, arguing, saying something.
Consider that your behavior has been like the behavior of untrained horses: hearing every voice as relevant, killing yourself and your hopes and dreams as well.
An untrained horse reacts to the noise and pulls the wagon into oncoming traffic, right under a passing 18-wheeler.
That untrained horse is you. 2
So, now that I have brought these two threads together, the amigdala that talks and tells you what to do, and the spiritual exercise for life I have asked you to do... here is what can be expected if you are willing, faithful, and full of faith with regards to the exercise I have given you:
At some point, just like the young horse, you'll be able to ell what is relevant what isn't in the inner voices.
What is you speaking, and what is the "not-you" speaking. The not-you we call IT... the amigdala...
Given that being able to honor YOUR WORD AS YOURSELF is the goal, the fundamental condition needed to be fulfilled to start to climb the Tree of Life and approach the god-like state the Bible promises, this is and has been the missing step.
Did I get to the seed level? I got close, and maybe even TO the seed level.
Muscle test says: this is the seed level.
I don't know. I only know that the moment you can tell what is you, and what is not you, what is relevant and what isn't, your belligerence, resistance, fear, and tugging at the rope disappear... and you start to become a HUMAN BEING.
And that is the goal.
The Original Design.
OK, I hear you. You want me to spell out the exercise for you, again.
So, here you go:
Whenever you can, listen in to the voices in your head. Without evaluating them, without resisting them, without trying to think different, without force, judgment, just observe and if it is convenient, record the voices.
Straight up. Not your narrative about them. Not your translation of them, Not talking about them. NO... QUOTING them.
If the voice says: don't do it! it is too hard, then document it this way: the voice said: "don't do it! it is too hard"
Instead of saying that the voice said I should not do it.
You do the narration, and nothing will happen. No results. None. Just more of the same: you acting on all the voices.,, as if all were relevant and YOU speaking.
Some of what the voice says is relevant. Some of what the voice says is not relevant.
Your job is to do an inventory and be able to tell them apart.
Is it possible the "don't do it! it is too hard" is relevant? Of course. Many times.
The point is to hear it. The point is to be able to tell what is relevant and what is not.
Just like the horse the Amish train to pull a wagon and not kill them.
99% of you won't do it. And you and your life will remain the same. Shitty. And low vibration.
PD: lots of spiritual exercises address the immediate visible cause of something, and not the root cause... so they become ineffective, and the change is not sustainable...
The only way to affect real change is to change the root cause of what you want to change.
- When I download the Unconditional Love Activator to people, and they allow it, they are willing to receive it, the behavior of offspring, and even siblings' changes dramatically... My thought is that memories, genetic, ancestral memories live outside of the brain, and they are energetic in nature. Otherwise this phenomenon would not be possible.
- By the way, this is not the first time someone makes far-fetching conclusions about people through looking at animals. Dr. Joel Wallach, who is a veterinarian, has done that, and his conclusions have been of 50% truth value, while all other theories about health and wellness is 10% truth value, maximum.
