To what degree is your life fragmented?

fragmented lifeYour vibration, your creativity, your truth value all depends on your cone of vision... But until you see that you have a narrow cone of vision, that you look at things with narrow cone of vision, or a narrow filter, you won't want to make it wider.

Wide cone of vision means inclusive... narrow cone of vision is exclusive... exclusive of areas that you KNOW don't matter, don't belong, or you don't like them. Exclusive because you KNOW the answer...

The most exciting insights first show up in the corner of your eyes... Which means they are literally outside of your cone of vision.

One way I see this is how attached you are to one area of life, or one way to do it, or one problem you have.

The difference between information (knowing) and transformation

As you know, I have been learning the difference between information and transformation the hard way...

Even though I have "known" this difference already ten years ago (I have a video of myself to prove it,) even the knowledge of that isn't transformation.

Transformation is when your actions are consistent with the new knowledge, consistently.

My basic training is architecture, and my five year training, plus the two years to do all the calculations (a second graduate degree), it was all about doing, very little about knowing.

I had classmates who knew all the formulas, but couldn't solve the problems. I could solve all the problems, if someone gave me the formulas, which I consistently and stubbornly refused to memorize. Continue reading "The difference between information (knowing) and transformation"

Where attention goes, energy flows… but can you direct your attention by your thoughts?

How much control do you have over your attention?

Why that is important?

Two reasons:

  • 1. where attention goes, energy flows. But... as you'll find out, not all attention is equal...
  • 2. While you are "paying" attention to one thing, you are ignoring everything else.

Attention is a single pointed arrow... it is not very wide cone either.

  • Your cone of vision is already narrow... why? Because fear narrows it... automatically.
  • And fear also urges you to fix what seems to be threatening you... by avoiding it, or by doing something drastic to it.

What happens when you see something that seems to be threatening you? Essentially what happens is that you take that "thing" completely out of context... because in your puny cone of vision you cannot see the larger picture, you cannot see the context.

Abundance Or Scarcity? Choose… Updated

water doesn't exist for the fishThis article is from 2014...

Often anything can kick you into the horizontal plane 1 . I got kicked into it... the horizontal plane, and now I am working my way off... it is not that easy. I can't even connect to muscle test... the horizontal plane is sticky. It wants you, all of you. It eats your life for breakfast.

Let me explain: Humanity (you!) lives on the horizontal plane at this stage of evolution. It is both the starting point and the end state...

On the horizontal plane everything is about comparison. More, better, different...

The good old days...
I want what they have, because I don't have it... and I want it.

How the about-me score effects your relationships, how you appear in the world, how successful you can be?

Everyone, always, wants to effect the results directly, but that is not the nature of reality. The result comes from many many factors, that together and individually can be effected... and the synergistic effect finally gets all the way to the end result.

In some contexts the end result is your vibration. In others your worldly results, like how much money you make.

Because most people have no idea how the world works, what is the nature of reality, they are highly ineffective in the world, and they are highly dupable.

If you cannot see cause and effect, the connection between things, you'll do stupid things, put the cart in front of the horses, and spend time and money on ineffective practices, ineffective programs.

Religion is one of these ineffective practices, ineffective programs. Continue reading "How the about-me score effects your relationships, how you appear in the world, how successful you can be?"

Why is a dog happy and you are not?

I bet the title of previous article, "Are you a taker" got instantly translated in your head to "Are you bad?"

What you don't know is that if you are not allowed to take, you won't be allowed to give... the ultimate stingy... If you are not allowed to live according to your nature, you will do cartwheels to avoid it... even if and even when your nature would take you where you want to go.

There is a major difference between you and your dog. Your dog is happy, and you are not.

It is worth looking into that, because all the psychology articles, all the books, and all the therapy sessions will be un-needed once you get what it is about you that makes you unhappy. Continue reading "Why is a dog happy and you are not?"

Selfish? let’s look at that, shall we?

Life is best lived where what you want for yourself is a side effect.

I know, for half of humanity that sounds like liberal nonsense... but this is how life becomes the most enjoyable, and maybe the most "life-earning" as well, in spite of it being counter intuitive.

And this is true in every area of life...

I can't write a better article on this than Zat Rana here.

What I can write best is the wretchedness of going straight for what you want, and quitting when anyone else benefits... And I can share how this... getting what i need as a side effect, consciously, has been one of the secrets of my inner peace, fulfillment, and happiness.

Some 15 years ago I started studying Kabbalah, an ancient body of thought. The truth value of Kabbalah is about 30%, while most other "ancient" teachings are less than 10% truth value, so if you have a large body of knowledge yourself, have read hundreds or thousands of books, have degrees, etc. You are somewhat safe in studying Kabbalah.

“What you would seem to be, be really.” Russian Proverb

Your elbow is close, yet you can't bite it... another Russian proverb...

Your mind says: I am not enough... it has been saying it for a long time... but nothing has changed.

It is Monday Morning and I am already not enough.

I just read the Monday Morning Memo, and it answered my nagging question: why am I not more successful? And answered it in a way that turned me into a heap of meat: I can't do what it tells people to do... put sentences the way he says...

I can't. I'll never amount to much... maybe it's time to pack it in.

I am pondering what he teaches, I am pondering my inability, I am pondering how I can live, have the audacity to live, now that I know.

I am pondering, as always, while I play Freecell, a computer card game. A completely impossible setup solves itself... I win the game. Continue reading "“What you would seem to be, be really.” Russian Proverb"

“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

I sound like a broken record... but I must share when I can see more of what I need to see to train you to raise your vibration.

I have been seeing (concluding) that there may be a linchpin type of lock, measured in your starting point measurements... #11. To what degree you think of yourself: Continue reading "“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”"

Do you want to be a hero or will you settle for being a dutiful serf?

What would happen if they passed a law that no one can take money until the buyer says he/she has used and is satisfied with their purchase... because the product or program delivered on its promises?

Judging from many testimonials, the majority of buyers leave their testimonial before they test or consume what they paid for. They like the packaging, the color of the stuff... or the accent of the coach... so they are happy. With what? one might ask...

I wonder how much these people value themselves and their money... My guess is: not much. Continue reading "Do you want to be a hero or will you settle for being a dutiful serf?"
