I bet you are wondering what I have been doing for the past few weeks that instead of three posts a day I am only writing one, maybe two a week.
I have been busy.
The Daily Connection is in a training phase, training plus activation, every day: takes me a good 6-8 hours of intense work to get that done. I have to admit, it’s hard work.
I have also come up with a new idea: putting the activators on mobile phones, but that requires a whole rework of the connection, or the activation. Grueling testing, and more testing. I am still not sure it works. I need another round of testing.
I wonder how much the other “spiritual teachers” test… I doubt that they do.
If you know how to get something on the iphone and on the Android/Google phones, and want to help, I’d welcome an email from you.
The third thing that is using up my time is the real topic of this email: a student of mine recommended that I get on Lumosity and train my brain to function more efficiently.
As you know from my bio, I had a major brain trauma 13 years ago, and lived with only 50% of my IQ for about 5 years.
I thought that I have recovered.
Doing the exercises on Lumosity is either proving that I haven’t recovered, or it’s proving that I was never very smart.
Not a pleasant thought. Not at all.
Watching myself miss, not being able to see two things at the same time, not being able to remember, making mistakes, seeing something as one, then discovering that it’s another, making spelling mistakes and not even knowing is really hard for me.
Most people that know me think that I am really smart, even though I tell everyone that I am not. But secretly I hoped that I was, I mean smart.
Now, if the story stopped here, you could hate me. But it doesn’t.
I know a lot of people who are even less smart than I am. They would never consider taking on training their brain. They either think that they are smart (most of them) or they think that they are not trainable.
My story shows that intelligence can be increased by waking up the brain. Why don’t more people do it?
And here is the point of this whole story: quickening, or putting yourself in the position of growing takes courage.
It takes facing the bad news: I am a walking dead, I am not intelligent enough, I am dull, I am …. fill in the blank. Then find a program that targets that aspect of you, and do it dilligently.
That is what I am doing.
When you have a scoreboard measuring whatever you are trying to improve, you can also see something interesting: what you eat, how much you sleep, what you drink, exercise, mood, all influence your scores.
I did the exercises today after eating a cheese cake.
My results were half of yesterday’s. One might question if it is worth giving up being effective in life for a darn cheese cake.
I don’t think so.
I developed an activator for that. It is called “discerning.”
After getting that activator, choosing what’s good for you is really easy. But first you’ll make mistakes. Like I did.
PS: don’t kill me for that picture of the girls. I found it cute, and wanted to use it. No hidden agendas, no overt agendas, just cute.
