How To Stay Broke Forever

If you ever wondered where guidance comes from, here is a great example, from about 10 minutes ago.

In an email conversation, one of my "interns" was commiserating with me... because the refrigerator died again, and this time there is no excuse: it needs to be replaced.

But... in order to bring in a new one, I have to push stuff aside, clean the old one from now rotting stuff... and I feel very weak to even contemplate doing it.

So she says (my intern): "and everything feels heavy when you're weak."

Lucky formulation of a sentence... because it woke me up. This, what she says, is true across the board. It is true in the physical realm, and it is even more true in the "psychological" realm: if you feel weak you'll do little.

And most people feel weak all the time. Their intellectual and physical exercise is from the car to the grocery store, or from the couch to the refrigerator. Continue reading "How To Stay Broke Forever"

How does fear get in your way of getting to abundance, to a life worth living?

Fear...

What is in your way of getting to abundance, to a life worth living?

People, normally, want some miracle potion, lotion, energy treatment, belief erasure, mind movies, vision boards, and many other things that they hope will give them abundance.

Or they are waiting to feel like doing something, maybe courage?

Your life is like a boat on sea… Where it’s going is given by the drift 96%

Every learning is becoming. Every action that is aimed at learning but doesn't lead to becoming... is not learning, it is just a pretense. Treading water. The drift.

But becoming is not easy, and it takes longer than you would expect. OK, longer than I expect. Longer than I have been expecting... 🙁

Why? because some of the learning requires you to be "right there", ready for that particular learning. You first need to become ready. Continue reading "Your life is like a boat on sea… Where it’s going is given by the drift 96%"

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... 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. I 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.

Do you need passion to love your work? Purpose? the right work? What is the truth about that?

One of my ex-students sent me an email today. He is an ex-student, because I could not get him to achieve any results whatsoever.

But he has sent me valuable information before, so I read the email.

He sent me to a short video about Cal Newport's book: Be so good they can't ignore you.

I watched it. It was good. 30% truth value. Same as the book. 30% truth value is exceptional... but...

It is a topic that is in the forefront of most people's mind: how to have the eight plus hours of work, the activity that provides you with enough money to live on, enjoyable. Not drudgery. Not feeling like a tool, feeling like a slave. Not something you have to do, but something you get to do. Not something that after that you can have your own life... something you are deprived of for eight whole hours.

Thousands of books are written to these people... and all of them are low truth value.

When something is only 30% truth value, you can be sure it won't work unless you find the missing truth. Continue reading "Do you need passion to love your work? Purpose? the right work? What is the truth about that?"

When Life seems to work against you… or does opposite of what you expected

One of my teachers, via Ayn Rand, has been Aristotle.

He taught me one thing. Most people will not teach you much... they will do one thing and one thing only: alter your foundation.

And with regards to foundation altering: Aristotle's teaching is the most jarring, and the most transformative.

Here is the teaching:

Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think that you are facing a contradiction, check your premises.

If you are doing all the right things and still don't have your results... that is a contradiction. Check your premises. Continue reading "When Life seems to work against you… or does opposite of what you expected"

High desire… it must be a good thing, right?

Desire vs ambition. What is the difference? Which one should you have?

For most people words mean something... approximately. Their life reflects this unclarity. Clarity is one of the most important determinants of one's life... this is why I measure it in the starting point measurements.

I watched a guy who until his clarity went up to 3500, he was miserable.

Most people I measure have a clarity of 200-400. Puny at best, sh*tty life. Guaranteed.

Ok, desire and ambition. Let's agree what the words mean... energetically.

Desire is 100% desire for the self alone. Wanting something for yourself but not being willing, not even considering doing work to get it. If someone else has what you want, you envy it, you are jealous of them... but to match the work they did... hell no.

Ambition, on the other hand is a willingness to work, to sweat, to do for one's own fulfillment. The higher your ambition the more you can accomplish the faster.

Desire takes the energy away from ambition... Continue reading "High desire… it must be a good thing, right?"

A counter-intuitive strategy you’ve been missing…

build the habit firstSometimes you just do what you do... but you can't see the forest for the trees... until someone puts a label on what you do... I am talking about myself...

This is what happened today... what a glorious day!

Because unless you see the forest... you may be doing the right thing, but

1. cannot teach others to do the same
2. cannot start a new "forest" in a different area

Create the habit first... That is the principle... Unless you know the principle, you can't teach it... Unless you can teach it, it is not conscious enough... it is not guiding enough.

Most people start doing things wanting instant results. It is like building the penthouse first... It is not going to work.

Why is this revolutionary?

When you tackle one thing at a time, you are doing simple things easy. That is another principle: do simple things easy! Continue reading "A counter-intuitive strategy you’ve been missing…"

How full is your toolbox? Planning to dig a well when you are thirsty?

One of the common characteristics of people I meet is that they have no skills, no tool box, they are waiting for the right opportunity to do anything. They will start to learn the right skills when they need them, when they'll know what they want to do. And, of course, it is too late to dig a well when you are thirsty... they languish of thirst...

I am a lot like Bob in the movie "Bob The Butler".

I am inspired by that movie to do even more skill building to fill my tool box.

I am 70 years old. I have 27 skill sets, 27 ways to make a living. I am an architect. I am a brick mason. I can lay wooden floor, I can lay tiles both on the floor and on the wall. I can hang wallpaper. I am a plumber. etc. etc. etc. One time I counted. I have forgotten more professions than you know how to do.

What did this do to me? What did this do to Bob, the butler?

Want abundance? Why is it that what you read about abundance isn’t doing a thing for you?

What you find in books, articles about abundance all come from the Dark Side... Please consider that there is a Dark Side. It will explain a lot...

The Dark Side is created by people with their words, with their visualization. Mind stuff. Some people did that with intentional misdirection, others people: too stupid, too unaware, too shallow to even look... just saying and writing second hand bullshit.

While I was working on getting to a world view that is most accurate, I studied, deeply, quite a few disciplines and "modalities"... philosophies. For way more than 10 dark years... lol.

Landmark, Kabbalah (the Kabbalah Centre way), the Healing Codes, Theta Healing, Omega Shakti System, T. Harv Eker, Dianetics, etc. etc. etc. Continue reading "Want abundance? Why is it that what you read about abundance isn’t doing a thing for you?"
