A new lease on life. How I got, unexpectedly, what joy is

Last night I had a conversation with myself and Source. As I shared in my previous post, I have lived my whole life based on an untrue assumption that I was living on borrowed time, and at any time it can be taken away. I saw that life needs to be set up in a … Continue reading “A new lease on life. How I got, unexpectedly, what joy is”

The other destabilizing energy: the energy of the urges

Yesterday I wrote about the destabilizing energy of avoiding, fighting, resisting. The enemies of having a good life, having a productive life. The enemies of being able to concentrate your energies on what you are working on. There is a whole other type of energy that works the opposite way… the urges and the cravings.

When the lightening has no thunder, you can’t hear it…

Sometimes, actually quite often, changing one word could be the difference between living a life in quiet desperation and living a life in excitement and eagerness… But what is the word? What is the word that makes the spirit that has been dormant in you open its eyes and say… let’s go? Let’s fly.

Wherefrom comes the energy? and why does it fizzle out?

In February 1988 my career as an architect ended with a whimper It went out like a light. I was 41 years old. I was sure I had nothing to offer, I had no value, and I had no future. It felt like I was on a stormy sea, on a ship, and had no … Continue reading “Wherefrom comes the energy? and why does it fizzle out?”

Success as the destination causes a failed life

In fact, it is not just success, but any supposedly positive outcome as the focus, as the destination will cause a failed life. As certainly as that the sun will come up in the morning. I have a student who wants to be worthy. The question to ask: why? Why would you want to be … Continue reading “Success as the destination causes a failed life”

What gives you wings? What do you hope will give you wings?

When I was a kid I read a book about Sam Small, The Flying Yorkshireman. I read it in Hungarian… It was easier to read in Hungarian than in English… Ugh… that Yorkshire accent in writing… impossible to tolerate. Anyway, this Sam Small could fly. And I decided that I wanted to fly too. I … Continue reading “What gives you wings? What do you hope will give you wings?”

Do you have an unhealthy relationship with money?

I thought I would report on the Moneyroots workshop… given the seemingly no interest… Four people, the same four people paid for both workshops. That made it very easy for me: I didn’t have to repeat anything… I am not good at repeating, my brain isn’t good at that. My brain is like the adventurers … Continue reading “Do you have an unhealthy relationship with money?”

Something keeps you down… do you know what it is?

One of the signs of intelligence is for someone to be able to see and actually see the big picture. To see you need to look. Look and see. Most never look. Or when they look they are looking for something, which means they narrow their cone of vision… to minuscule width. Results: most people … Continue reading “Something keeps you down… do you know what it is?”

Fulfillment starts in third and fourth gear. Below that…

Below that it’s discontent. This is true in any area. Health, wealth, love and fulfillment (aka work). It seems that most of life can be lived somewhat safely without consciousness. Consciousness is activated with a type of thinking. Thinking things out, deeply. Without that kind of thinking there is no consciousness. Animals get on quite … Continue reading “Fulfillment starts in third and fourth gear. Below that…”

I there any truth in the ‘law of attraction’?

Because deals are a dime a dozen So, he says, it is import to bet on the process no on the result… not on the pot of gold. And … Continue reading “I there any truth in the ‘law of attraction’?”
