What is the "real" meaning of little hinges swing big doors? And what is the practical benefit of knowing it? And putting it to work in your life.
The difference between the 99% and the 1% is what we are talking about in this article.
You may or may not be able to raise yourself to the level of the 1%, but you'll move from wherever you are to a lot higher in income, life satisfaction, etc. depending on how well you employ this new thing... that at present you probably have never thought of.
Rob Brezsny writes: U2's singer Bono, says that all of us suffer from the sense that something's missing from our lives. We imagine that we lack an essential quality or experience, and its absence makes us feel sad and insufficient. French philosopher Blaise Pascal referred to this emptiness as "a God-shaped hole." Bono adds that "you can never completely fill that hole," but you may find partial fixes through love and sex, creative expression, family, meaningful work, parenting, activism, and spiritual devotion. I bring this to your attention, because I have a strong suspicion that in the coming weeks you will have more power to fill your God-shaped hole than you've had in a long time.
If you look at Bono's take on the human condition, that we are designed to be forever somewhat unfulfilled, to experience a gnawing black hole in our insides, what Bono calls the "god-shaped hole" a 3% truth value statement... then, muscle test says, the truth part is that some things provide temporary relief, reprieve from the feeling of that emptiness, but it is his list that is flawed... not the idea: him including meaningful work, for example, don't belong to the list. Neither does creative expression... the rest: it depends on you. Parenting could fulfill you, but often you don't know what the heck you are doing, so it leaves the hole unfilled.
...for example: fix something that you don't understand what it is, you just KNOW that it's wrong. Put the cart in front of the horse. Never bother to find the cause... the real cause of anything... the laws of nature.
You may be doing all the steps that can produce the results you want, but what happens if and when you are doing them out of order? Or you don't give enough time to each step to perform its magic, out of greed or hunger or impatience?
What can the Nobel Prize winning physicist's story teach you? OR What did Frank Kern learn the hard way?
First, before I get into the story itself, let's ponder the meaning of teaching so we are on the same page, shall we?
As someone who attempts to teach, let me tell you what it's like for me: I find a thousand different ways to say, demonstrate, frame what I want to teach. I invent thousand and one stories, I find books that hint on what I want to teach, I sing it, I make it a comedy, make it a tragedy, I make you read, I make practice activating your eye muscles and the related brain areas...
And if I do it long enough with enough enthusiasm, I may get a few people to learn what I teach... but most of the time it is a real uphill battle.
This post, this audio is a little on the choppy side, because you are witnessing me entering the invisible and making new connections, connecting some dots. Brilliant if I may say so myself... 🙂
Okay. alright, it's Saturday. I just finished listening to today's installment of the 5-Minute Mentor Series. This is one of the things I signed up to carry my consciousness around 360 degrees, and alter, with the help of consciousness, what it is that I do about my finances.
Why do I trust it? Because it's done by the same person as the 67 Steps. The 67 Steps, whether it's good or bad, it has revolutionized my life. I did all 67 for eight times. I have been doing it since February, two and a half years ago. Because of some slight lifestyle changes, I now prefer to do the five minute a day version.
This is an audio that will explain a lot... and you'll hate it. If by any chance you'll love it, you just found the secret of a well lived life.
Okay. It's Friday morning, and this little talk I'm doing today will not make you happy. Why? 'Cause it's going to upset the apple cart. It's going to wrinkle your sheets. It's going to be trampling on your beliefs.
