You live in a machine. The machine lives your life for you
But don’t feel suddenly innocent… you are running this machine as much as this machine is running you.
We could maybe even say: what is your vibration? Your vibration depends on to what degree this machine is running you and your life. The more often it does the lower your vibration.
The only real enemy of this machine is responsibility…
While this machine is functional, the only real thing about any human is: they will do what feeds the machine.
And do, it is not society. And no, it is not some conspiracy. It is also not the Matrix.
It is a personal machine, and only a person can beat it, manage it, and gain some power over it. It’s a personal machine.
I don’t know who first revealed it…
The machine doesn’t like itself to be revealed. It works best in hiding. When it is not obvious it’s a machine.
Studying it, if you have a chance, you learn why your life is unfulfilling, why you are never joyful, why you may not want to do anything, and why you, like a dog on a scent, never look around and enjoy life.
Life is beautiful, but even when you hear me say, you don’t likely look around and see… you probably mumble to yourself: maybe for you.
The machine and you are co-conspirators: your efforts are designed to make you look and feel like a victim… even though you are the perpetrator.
If you stopped the perpetration, the machine would have no fodder. It would lose its energy, or most of it.
The secret underbelly of the machine is the accounting or bookkeeping…
Profit is getting something for nothing.
On the positive side of the accounting ledger is what you get. The currency. It is all ego-based. Looking good. Being right or at least more right than others. Winning. Arguments, the upper hand. Dominating, justifying. All the things that reward the machine.
On the cost side is everything what Life would want for you. Health, wealth, love and fulfillment. And, of course, self-love. Self-respect.
The machine may give lip-service that they want what Life wants you… but to get the ‘income’, the looking good, being right… etc. you need to pay and pay with health, wealth, love and fulfillment. And, of course, with self-love.
We read about pitbulls that maul their owners to death and we are horrified. No one considers that when you breed a dog to be an attack dog, you may be the one who gets attacked.
We bring the same blindness to the human condition… we refuse to recognize the machine and what the machine wants… Because we really really really like to consider ourselves a victim, never a perpetrator.
What humans try and have been successfully avoiding is what would take them to the next level of evolution… Responsibility.
If you are not responsible, if you can’t possibly be responsible, then you are a victim… and no one can blame you. You’ll get goodies. You’ll get something for nothing.
Of course you cannot get what Life is offering you, health, wealth, love and fulfillment. And even if you get some semblance of that, you won’t get self-love… hell no. Because deep inside you know. You know you are the perpetrator.
So what do you perpetrate?
You have been perpetrating a lie.
The like is some form of ‘I cannot’. Not exactly that, but in essence it says that you cannot possibly provide for yourself, do what you need to do, play the game of Life the way it is to be played… You are incapable but entitled.
Now, the biggest danger to a lie is to do or say anything counter to it.
If you can’t… but you can.
I am sure some of the fairy tales where some person uses a disguise to go out to the ‘people’ and do things that in their normal environment everyone knows they can’t.
No fairy tale continues after the big victory…
…where the hero is now married to their sweetheart, or whatever, and need to do what any normal person needs to do: do what is theirs to do. No fairy tale tells us because then maybe we would see the machine: in ‘real life’ they will pretend that they can’t. And that they can’t even learn to do what is theirs to do. Like you.
We live an age where allowing the machine to run full tilt boogie is still allows you to eat, have roof over your head, and never learn to do what is yours to do.
But when I go back to some fairy tales I see that in the ages where survival wasn’t almost guaranteed, the poor needed to look around and see what they can do to eat, to sleep, to survive.
Today’s human never looks around. And to boot, has a cone of vision, what they can see without moving the head, only a narrow slice. Mostly so small that in total darkness a penlight would be enough to see it.
No need for it… Moreover, if they looked wider they would see all the things that would bring them fulfillment, health, wealth and love… and they would be attracted to it and accidentally reveal the original lie that they cannot.
Is there a way out of the machine? No, says Source.
Instead, the machine needs to be managed.
But when you look, all your efforts are to eliminate, to fix what is wrong… and you never learned to manage. Manage yourself, manage your actions, your attitudes, so you don’t get in the way of the machine… or anything.
This machine isn’t wrong… even when it chews you and your life up. It is a machine, like the pitbull is a trained killer in the Long Island NY story yesterday.
Would simply telling the truth about the original lie make a difference?
Muscletest says yes. I say: yes.
But then, again, the ‘worst thing will happen’… you now are responsible. F….u…ck!
But if you are willing to say… ‘hey, I am responsible for what I said. And I lied, OK?‘
And then you’ll say: ‘The truth is: I can learn to do anything, and I don’t need alms, and handouts, and sympathy, and attention, and ‘respect’, and validation, thank you very much.‘
And in that really uncomfortable new reality you’ll be a complete beginner. A babe in the woods. But you’ll be you.
And you’ll start learning life, learning skills, learning how to take care of yourself and your needs. Instead of claiming yourself as a hapless victim.
Source says: you can.
Some will, most won’t. Because they don’t have to. They can stay in the machine, and continue getting the unearned goodies they extort with their victim-act.
Now, if you are the rare person who opt for that new life, however uncomfortable that is, you are wondering what you need to do first, and what you need to do second.
Like with anything you want to distinguish you need to really see it. See it so deeply that you can recognize it ‘by its breathing’ so to say. That you can recognize that it wants to swing into action by that feeling in your throat, or heart, or stomach… you need to identify where you feel that sudden feeling. I feel it in my throat.
And quickly look and consider if it is worth running this machine and suffer the consequences.
The faster you can arrest the machine the smoother and better your life becomes.
In the past year I let the machine go a minute or two into its cycle only once… It was horrible. It reminded me how I used to be, flying off the handle, into superior rage, calling people stupid. But I managed to stop the machine.
The more diligent you are about this phase, distinguishing, the more reliably you’ll recognize the machine and have a choice to arrest it or run it.
There is no life outside of the machine. There is no fixing the machine. And there is only managing the machine, instead of being run by it.
The machine is called The Racket… and I have been teaching it for at least 11 years.
In The Racket course have put four videos on a page. Four videos I created at different times with different participants.
You can buy the course with the four videos but it is nearly impossible to see how YOUR machine works, what the original lie was… Nearly impossible.
Not surprisingly, your money is entirely dominated by this machine. So obviously in the Moneyroots workshop what we reveal is YOUR machine. Its roots. The original lie… that you perpetuate by saying: it was true.
It was never true…
And the machine wants it hidden.
It wants it hidden so much that in a session when it is revealed, ten minutes later the person’s whose original lie was revealed can’t remember it. It wants it hidden so much that while the person takes notes, they say one thing but write another.
In this regard it is a lot like the Matrix…
Apropos The Matrix. If you watch that movie, and hold in your mind this machine so you can distinguish it in Neo, you can see that at some point he needs to make the same choice I am asking you to make. In the movie it is the blue pill or the red pill.
Choosing to be powerful and play in the real world, or choosing to be a victim, and play in the machine and play a victim.
Whether the Wachowski brothers knew about the machine or not, I don’t know. But they were illustrating it quite well. Not in their own lives, mind you, but in the movie. In their own lives they were and are used by the machine 100%.
Anyway, whether you are new to The Work, I recommend that you learn to recognize the machine and learn it through seeing examples of it, so you can internalize how to recognize it. And that you identify precisely the original lie…
In the upcoming Moneyroots workshop we’ll do that.
If you wonder how my machine works and damages my own life, here is an example. It is current.
A few months ago I turned a meditation type program into a coaching program.
When I set up the enrollment page, I wasn’t thinking and the machine kicked in… and I unwittingly priced the coaching program at ten dollars a month. 13 training/coaching sessions for ten bucks. I didn’t catch it until months later.
I have been working with those people at about five-six bucks an hour. Not per person. Per the group. My normal rate is $250 an hour… but the machine doesn’t like it…
My original complaint was: no matter what I do I am not worth keeping. No matter what I do I will never get what I deserve.
Through money it is easier to see the machine’s move, the trigger and the original complaint. That is why I am now doing this distinguishing work through money.
The workshop is called Moneyroots, and so far no one wants to do it, apart from some die-hard people who will take all my courses but never do anything with them.
If no new people will sign up, I will cancel the series… and it will be your loss.
If your machine jerks like mine, your life is hellish… and will remain so.

Moneyroots: get to the root of things
If this is true about you, I’d prefer that you get the hell off my page.
