Actually, lots of things can only be seen from the sideways view… and therein lies the inability for humans, for homo sapiens to grow, evolve, because 98% of all humans can’t look from the sideways view. And the 2% that can, doesn’t know that about the 98%, or even know about themselves, so they don’t fully utilize this rare capacity either.
I just finished reading a near future sci-fi novel, where part of the book plays out in Nazi Germany, and even in interactions with Hitler. Hitler depicted very differently from any depiction I have ever seen or read: a hygienically challenged weakling. I muscle tested, and the test proved this new picture more accurate than most people have: Hitler had only one predatory gene active, so he was pretty powerless, a petty tyrant. Greasy hair, greasy skin,… ugh…
He lost WWII, because he fancied himself to know to do what he didn’t know to do… run a successful war on many fronts. Thank heaven for that…
I didn’t check every author, only Sylvia Boorstein, and found that she had the Driftwood capacity open… and at the urging of a therapist, some 30 years ago, he starting to use it on herself. But beware: he doesn’t know about the Driftwood capacity: she thinks everyone has it… otherwise she would not have written her bestselling book… 7% truth value…
This article is about the Driftwood capacity, and what happens when you don’t have it open…
Learning about and learning to do
Some people, like Hitler, can see the finished product… clearly. Same people learn about something or imagine how to get to it… and then they fail.
I used to be a gymnast and an athlete… not the best, but competed nevertheless.
I remember working on the uneven bars. I could see the moves, but I could not do it, until I was shown some of the ropes, and it took me about a year to be able to do what I saw in my mind’s eye… and even after a year, landing wasn’t even close to perfect.
This is the nature of knowledge… and accomplishment.
People with vivid imagination don’t think they need to put in any effort… seeing that they COULD do it is enough for them… they feel smart, they feel accomplished, but in reality they have nothing to show for it.
It’s the number 7 in your numerical profile… whether it is your destiny number, or just one of the numbers… that pesky 7 is the driver of this behavior.
16, 17, 25, 27, 34, 37, 43
Other signs have different problems, but this is what bothers me the most right now. Just because you can say it, just because you can see it, doesn’t mean you can do it. But if you think you can, and you go for it, the result is bitterness, disappointment, self-hate, and a flat affect… Because you don’t even understand what is happening.
Because you can see it, you are bragadaccio… you think yourself smart, superior over the working bees, you have a swagger… but you also have a track record of no results, failures, and a big fat nothing.
I am a 34. I am luckier than most 7’s… I have a visceral experience of learning playing the violin, ballet, swimming, the guitar (classical), tennis, ping pong, cooking, pantomime, English, Russian, French, Hebrew, Arabic, all requiring the kind of process driven learning, where learning about it, visualizing isn’t enough by far.
And, of course, everything I have ever done to make a living, from folding men’s shirts, to ironing, to massage, to architecture, to desktop publishing, to advertising, to writing, to energy transmission, to staying connected, to meditation, to managing money, to managing my attitude, to becoming 10 times more excited, all took a long time, all took tiny steps, all were a process.
People of the 7 have moments of brilliance but not accomplishments… I managed to avoid that, even though I am a 7. Add 3 and 4 and you get seven.
Process is not elegant… it’s not ‘manifesting’… and therefore everyone despise it… in fact you don’t have to be a 7 to not want to follow some process.
But Life, nature, reality doesn’t agree with you. You are not special, and unless you get with the ‘program’ that is process-based, you’ll get nothing.
Understanding is the booby prize.
A whole 60% of humanity think that they know, or if they don’t know yet, they can know, do, have, in a jiffy. It is no problem.
And if you look at their lives, they are haughty, they are superior, they are better than others, in their own minds… Looking from behind their eyeballs.
There are people I have been observing for a long time.
Being an underachiever is horrible for the person who is.
Happiness can be measured, in essence, with the distance between the reality of one’s self and behavior and the imagined self and its behavior. The bigger the distance the less happiness there is.
We all expect happiness to come from the outside, money, another person, some good fortune, the size of the house, etc. but happiness is an inside job… just like integrity.
You can love yourself… you can be happy. You can’t love yourself… you can’t be happy.
Happy people are happy where they are, whatever they are doing, whoever they are with. It is so rare, you barely know anyone like that, do you?
What would be the process, what would be the key to dislodge these unfortunate people from their unhappiness?
Surprisingly there is an answer to this question.
When a delusional person can look at the gap from the outside where it is very clearly visible, they get suddenly knocked conscious. And once you are conscious, you can start removing the distance, once millimeter at a time.
You’ll promise less. you dream smaller… on the bombastic grandiose end of the gap, and start learning to do things, do things, right, slowly, on the practical end.
Even the process of doing this is happiness maker: you are making moves in the right direction. It’s been proven that when you are moving in the right direction, you feel happy, optimistic, you feel good about your life… while if you stagnate, or move downward, you feel very bad about your life.
The secret is to be consistent.
This in any area of your life.
Health, work, relationships.
The Devil (from the Bible) has one job: to convince you that it doesn’t exist. Tricky, eh?
The same is with the delusion that you can see everything the way it is…
Kabbalah calls the ‘devil’ The Opponent. Why a different word? When you use a different word, you look and see different things than if you use the same word you have always used.
The Opponent is there, every minute of every day trying to get in the way, trying to make you look and see and do different than it’s in your best interest.
The Opponent is succeeding with the 60% of humanity better than with the rest. So the 60% needs the driftwood capacity more than the rest… but wants it a whole lot less… No accidents there.
The Opponent wins if and when you are miserable.
The Opponent doesn’t take breaks, or vacations, it is always there, looking for the opening.
The moment I forget to monitor, from the sideways view (Driftwood!) my desire, the Opponent has got into the opening, and the desire become full blown…
In my case it is my weight, or talking sh*t… destroying everything I built, health, wealth, relationships. It doesn’t take much… just not looking from the side… thinking: no big deal.
It is always a big deal. Deadly. And I end up fat, sick, alone, and poor. Has happened more times than I care to remember.
If you are in the Playground, you can buy the Driftwood capacity activation, and I’ll throw in the ‘letting go’ capacity for you.
If you are not in the Playground, but would like to benefit from capacity activation, your path may be the Avatar State Activators, audio files that need to be played in the background. I even have one for driftwood… of course.
Given the linchpin position this capacity has to turn unhappy memories into neutral and maybe even pleasant, by simply looking at things differently, I think this is the most important capacity of all.
I have a 30 minute video explaining and attempting to activate the capacity from some seven years ago.
I have an avatar state audio that helps you keep the capacity alive, or slowly turn it on… if you attempt to use it often enough.
If you buy it before Friday March 13, I’ll invite you to a live question and answer webinar where I’ll answer your specific questions and activate everyone on the live call again… A $100 value. It may be the first hour of our next Playground, for all I know…
