When you change the way you see things, the things you see change!
The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.
I have a disproportionately large number of people asking for their numbers, whose soul correction is "Sexual Energy"
I could ponder why the Kabbalist named the soul correction that... but instead of that I'll say: How you do anything is how you do everything... meaning whatever your attitude to one thing in life, will be visible in every area of life, including sex.
The main attitude of this soul correction, "Sexual Energy" is: It is my due. One may say "I deserve it". I heard the expression "Magiya li" in Israel a lot. 1
What is the common error in many of the spiritual practices, an error that result in not what someone wanted from the practice, but instead forcing, or self-righteousness... neither of which are very spiritual? 1
I am learning a lot by observing Gurjieff at different stages of his journey, and through the different students he had.
If I am not mistaken, the mistake is made early on... in the intention.
I have learned different meditation techniques. What was in common with them is the desire to be free from the thoughts, and the harmful emotions.
Regardless, I am continuing on the theme, because this is one of the stumbling block for most of you... so although you don't know what is eating your lunch... although you have no idea how you are screwing up, I do, and I am here to help you till you get it. I already have a third article in the pipeline... ;-/
There are really two types of people when it comes to making more money: one group will chase the mirage, the lottery approach, winning, betting on schemes... and the other, the tiny group that sees that making more money is a natural fallout of becoming worth a damn. 4
I am interested in talking to the second group, the tiny group.
You see, knowing that you should become worth a damn is nice and dandy... but knowing with pinpoint accuracy where you aren't... what it is that you need to do next to increase your worth a damn factor is crucial.
"They" 5 want you to hope for a miracle... magic, windfall...
And you have been compliant. You buy magical supplements. Start magical diets. Go to magical healers. Buy magical courses.
Magic bullet. You have a storehouse of those.
I recommended to a new client that she sells it to people who still want a magic bullet. She didn't say yes. I guess she still hopes that one day they will magically start working.
I got a deep insight in this kind of thinking when i read the otherwise worthless long book by Laura Knight-Jadczyk. OK, it is not worthless to me, actually they were worth their weight in gold... they are worthless to you. The woman has insight, but mixes it with crap... I took the insights, if you read her stuff, you'll probably eat the crap.
Anyway, what i got is the historical roots of magical thinking.
