Unless you define what is success for you, you can’t become successful

11 Views

I sleep poorly the night before every Playground session. It takes me hours to fall asleep, and I have trouble filled dreams.

So when I got up this past Saturday, it was freezing cold, in the single digits outside... single digits in Fahrenheit is very cold... double digits in the minus in Celsius.

So I pondered what I had to look forward that day.

For a long time, for years, when I looked, when I asked that question, I only saw one thing to look forward to: my morning tea. Rich British Blend Tetley with full fat milk... Continue reading "Unless you define what is success for you, you can’t become successful"

People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care

...poet and filmmaker Jean Cocteau said.

  • 1. There are truths that you can only say after having won the right to say them.
  • 2. True realism consists in revealing the surprising things that habit keeps covered and prevents us from seeing.
  • 3. What the public criticizes in you, cultivate. It is you.
  • 4. You should always talk well about yourself! The word spreads around, and in the end, no one remembers where it started.
  • 5. We shelter an angel within us. We must be the guardians of that angel.

IF THE ANGEL DECIDES TO COME . . .

'If the Angel decides to come it will be because you have convinced her, not by tears, but by your humble resolve to be always beginning; to be a beginner.' ~ Rainer Maria Rilke Continue reading "People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care"

Why is it that you look at a successful person and even if you copy all their actions, even if you copy their attitude the way they tell you, you won’t be able to duplicate their success?

This is an article I wrote almost 8 years ago...

Why is it that you look at a successful person and even if you copy all their actions, even if you copy their attitude the way they tell you, you won't be able to duplicate their success?

I have been slacking off growing, i.e. didn't do much to grow, and I noticed. Not for a long time, maybe a week or two, but I have started to notice. Just like athletes notice the imperceptible signs of muscle atrophy and weakening when they are on vacation.

It is very easy to go to this mode... easier than to go back to growth mode.

It's easy, because 99% of the population is there, at any one time. Most people over 18, as a matter of fact, and most people under 18... lol, not funny.

Kabbalists say: the bible is code. They, of course, mean: the Old Testament, the 5 books of Moses

Kabbalists say: the bible is code. They, of course, mean: the Old Testament, the 5 books of Moses.

If the Bible is code, then it is not a story... or if there is a story there, it is itself code: meaning an illustration of a principle.

Egypt stands for slavery. Slavery to whatever people are a slave to: riches, significance, sex, entertainment, desire to receive for the self alone, their racket, the racket with which they extort goodies from others, justify their nastiness, their domination, their haplessness.

Extorting sympathy, or whatever they extort.

So what did Moses do with this bunch of slaves? Continue reading "Kabbalists say: the bible is code. They, of course, mean: the Old Testament, the 5 books of Moses"

Removing Barriers to you being all-you-can-be

I just read an excerpt of Mark Manson's (vibration: 260) book, about the path to growing... The art of not giving a f*ck

Even the brief is worth reading...

Some people write better than me. Some people find solutions faster than me. Some people can teach ME things... Baah, right?

What Manson says is the essence of the Michelangelo Method of growing.

You remove everything that doesn't work, everything that is not you, everything that doesn't support you in living life you love and living it powerfully.

But the sticky part of this process is telling the truth about having been wrong. Continue reading "Removing Barriers to you being all-you-can-be"

So you want to be important… liked… relevant… belonging.

So you want to be important... liked... relevant... belonging.

This issue is coming to the forefront... This expectation of be made important, liked, relevant, belonging by other people, or by some job, of by association, or by some success.

Or to be liked by behaving in a certain way, be liked by other people because of something you do or don't do.

It is an aspect of being an effect... not a cause. Little explored by anyone.

You are either in the world of because or you are cause... BE cause

Self awareness is not enough. Understanding is not enough.

56 Views

If you want to become more, grow, evolve, self awareness is important but it is not enough. Meditation is not enough. Having a person to model yourself after is not enough. Reading is not enough. Understanding is not enough either.

Something is missing, the presence of which would make the most difference, and could take you through the barrier to full knowledge of your machine.

What machine, you ask?

This is the same as when you mention to someone that their little voice is always talking... What little voice they ask?

90% of what matters about a human, about you, is in the invisible, the vague, the hidden. Even others can only see the peak of the iceberg, not the whole... not the part that is immersed, not the part that we call "the machine". Continue reading "Self awareness is not enough. Understanding is not enough."

Last night I spent a lot of time looking at a deluge of memories of things I’ve done that I am ashamed of

I just slashed my finger for the third time this morning. I will have a hard time muscle testing for a bit... Here is what happened:

Last night in bed I spent a lot of time looking at a deluge of memories of things I did that I am ashamed of.

They came, vividly, fast and furious, things I have long forgotten, things I am not proud of.

I resisted the temptation to explain them away, I resisted turning away. I resisted saying they are wrong. Continue reading "Last night I spent a lot of time looking at a deluge of memories of things I’ve done that I am ashamed of"

What can you learn and take away from longevity studies no matter what age you are?

69 Views

Ever since I discovered that I can measure numbers about health, the health of different organs, and even biological age, I have been interested in listening to anti-aging, longevity "experts".

I admit, my grasp, my understanding is sketchy at best, and yet some of the health measurement numbers and my knowledge about the person they belong to start making more sense, than not.

So I am going to share with you, here, some of the valid insights I have gained. I say valid because I muscle test and Source says "true" "not true" "truth value" Continue reading "What can you learn and take away from longevity studies no matter what age you are?"

What is the difference between “I am” and “I have been”? They both create yourself… but which is the right you?

I wrote this article almost two years ago, and suddenly it became as current as anything...

It is a great companion piece to my article for today:

As I am continuing giving long and substantial "strategy sessions" to people, I am learning a lot.

I am seeing stuff that cannot be see through feeling. I am seeing stuff that won't come through in the Starting Point Measurements, no matter how good a tool muscle testing is. Some things won't even become clear in a short call...

I love the expression: "in the limited perspective of the human mind" and now I am inclined to add that even inside the human mind, you can look at things through different perception organs... and you'll see more if you use more than just your favorite.

Most people's "perception organ" is to turn to, habitually, to what they have already decided. The mind.

This gives you the least true-to-reality perception, obviously.

But my method for the Starting Point Measurements has been limping on one leg as well: Using feelings only. Continue reading "What is the difference between “I am” and “I have been”? They both create yourself… but which is the right you?"
