Remember, reading, when it creates a world, a rich world to live in, to accomplish in, is holographic. Each book sharpens some area, fills in the missing or fuzzy details.
This one sentence has been such a sentence. Flashlight.
The sentence is, I am paraphrasing, "I asked Tristan wash she happy. and he said, not especially, but he thinks this is due to she is Hungarian and they are not a merry race. And he has a point..." 1
Like a flashlight, my consciousness is now looking for signs of mood... disposition: merry, gloomy, angry, something I have never considered, never really noticed... as if it didn't exist.
Suddenly I am noticing. And you know what? It is significant.
I binged on a Russian series over the weekend. This guy loves two women. One is a great match for him, the other...
Our guy is a happy person ready for fun... lives like fun. The other woman is gloomy. A perfect match with the gloomy other guy who loves her.
I probably lean towards gloomy. But have a capacity for fun. Rowdy fun. Like dancing and joking.
I am going to add vocabulary words to add more color, more shades, more details into my hologram. I am excited. Wow.
Something happened, something opened up for me, because this, mood, disposition is not the only area where I am starting to see more details.
It's as if someone had raised the level of lighting... opened the shutters...
Let's not jinx it... lol.
Until you have an interconnected, holographic picture of reality that is largely (30%) truthful, all your learning will be unlearning. Correcting. Exchanging myth for truth.
30% is a lot. The best books have 10% truth value or under. The books written by known and renown scientists...
And these books also are fragmented: their authors don't have that interconnected, holographic picture of reality.
They are like one of my clients who has a tendency to focus in on one thing, and dig. Deep. He is in business, and his mistakes are business mistakes. But the mistakes could be in any area of life.
The skill is to alternate among three modes of looking:
- looking at the big picture where you can see proportions, contexts. These is seeing the forest.
- The second way to look is to see the timeline. See the process. To see where things are going. In time.
- And the third say to look is the shortest amount of time, the thing you are working on. The project.
For example: I was eating New Zealand lamb for a few months. Now my supply has dried up 2 and I am forced to eat American Lamb. Since last Wednesday (it is monday only! Five days![/note] has already killed my gut flora... my probiotics are needed again.
Why? Because American farms, American supermarkets, "generously" feed homegrown lamb with antibiotics, because: guess, they feed them grains which makes them sick... and makes me sick. The label says: organic, grass fed, but it is a lie. Every label in American supermarkets is a lie. Every single one of them.
But without me looking all those three ways at what is happening, without having enough truth and enough details in my holographic picture of food manufacturing in the world and especially in the United States of "let's make people sick" I would not have checked if I needed probiotics, and would get really sick... fast, and would not know what hit me.
Here is another example: I am watching this TED talk video 3 on converting desert sand into soil... soil meaning: stuff grows in it. Attempts of turning the deserts of the planet into greed have been around but of all the methods this feels the most effective and most cost-effective.
But the powers that be are not interested.
Scarcity serves their purpose: keeping humanity in victim mode, effect mode, not even thinking of self-determination.
And here is a holographic shift of focus: I go from looking at the planet, that is getting uncomfortably warmer. Now I look at you: your cells are drying out. Your inner "terrain" is getting less and less fertile. You are able to thrive less and less... You live in scarcity, your attention is on yourself, and you have scarcely any attention left to get something done.
Do you see the connection? The same picture, from two different vantage points.
If we add the third, temporality, time, we see that the ones that are not narrowed into their own little limited perspective because they have their cells hydrated, are going to move onto the next century, the next evolutionary phase of humanity.
This is what I am talking about.
If you want to know where you are standing, the 16 different measures of the Starting Point Measurements will set you on the map... where you are and which way you need to go, if you want to become part of the next evolutionary phase of humanity.
And here is an insight from the Russian Netflix series, worth for you to have read this article: when you don't live like your life is in danger, when you don't live in scarcity, which is actually an attitude, then you can bring creativity, joy, inventiveness to life.
When you can say: it's all in a day's work, and don't even have to say "honest work", and you can bring caring to your work, it is heaven on earth. I mean it.
But as long as you live in scarcity, as long as you have to look at everything through yourself... your life is hell. Hell on earth. Same exact circumstances... nothing else changed. Just your experience and therefore your actions.
In one paradigm you want to make as much as possible with as little work as possible, in the other, where work is part of life and not a negation of life, you are joyfully investing as much as you got... for who wouldn't?
I have observed that stingy students, stingy clients, all suffer from the effects of stinginess. Because that is how it is.
