Can you trust yourself? No, not yet… You need a Paradigm Shift: Own what owns you

paradigm shiftI get affirmation from wherever, when I am on the right path... here it goes: I just finished this article, and here is my Rob Brezsny horoscope...

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Burrow down as deep as you dare, Virgo. Give yourself pep talks as you descend toward the gritty core of every matter. Feel your way into the underground, where the roots meet the foundations. It's time for you to explore the mysteries that are usually beneath your conscious awareness. You have a mandate to reacquaint yourself with where you came from and how you got to where you are now.

Make it yours... if you have the courage... So you can become free. The process is more intricate than Rob Brezsny indicates, but it is also more rewarding.

OK, onto the actual article...

I have this very interesting and troubling insight:

People want to learn to act from their inner authority without ever finding out the bad news about themselves:

...who they have been being, that "told" them to do all the things that made their lives not work, or not work as well as it could. Continue reading "Can you trust yourself? No, not yet… You need a Paradigm Shift: Own what owns you"

40% of humanity never learns… But why? Hint: They are not stupid…

don't get stuck on a pageI have some students who are not keeping up with the other students. These students don't learn. So much so, that after a whole year, they are still at page 1 or page 2 of a class... that is 100 pages... Of course there are no pages... but pages express more what I want to say than percentages.

It is the middle of the night: I got up to write this article, because I got the insight that has been missing. Continue reading "40% of humanity never learns… But why? Hint: They are not stupid…"

What is your time worth? What does it have to do with your worth?

what is your time worth? do you value your time?If you are in business... or even if you are only selling your time/work at a job or freelancing, pricing your merchandise, friendship, advice, companionship, your time, your service is going to be something worth looking at.

A few decades ago I published a magazine. The magazine was free, the income came from advertising.

A girl whom I knew from before, who worked at the same architect's office I worked, called me and asked if she could trade cleaning my office for advertising. Turns out she was turning tricks...

She came to the office, worked for an hour and expected it to cover the price of a quarter page ad, $200 at the time.

Why? Because that is what she got paid by her johns. lol Continue reading "What is your time worth? What does it have to do with your worth?"

Do people want to get smarter? Do YOU want to get smarter? What do you think it would mean to you?

These come up as questions, because... hell, because I don't know if they do... If you do... Do YOU?

I don't think currently living humans appreciate what that question means, I don't think YOU know what being smart entails.

I think you think that smarts are only

  • to win in computer games
  • finish homework fast... or maybe even skip doing it... after all smart people just get it! this used to be me...
  • entertain and impress people at parties
  • if you have little kids... get them to go to bed earlier... that needs smarts, somehow
  • if you are still in mating age (I am not), get the other want to have sex with you... or if you are tired... be appeased faster
  • get to understand the instructions at work, for DIY jobs, for many thing... understanding is the key word
  • oh, and let's not forget about remembering stuff... that would make you really smart, right?

And yes, those results all need some kind of smarts. Continue reading "Do people want to get smarter? Do YOU want to get smarter? What do you think it would mean to you?"

The introduction of the occurrence mental model you, a mental model you want to get rid of

This article was removed from Medium.com... I guess it offended a "star" there...

The person whose articles inspired this one has 10 active predatory genes...

In my next article, the one I am working on, I'll ponder about that high number... As I just did, in my Sunday call with an old friend who is like the perfect mirror to me...

I don't publish those calls for general consumption: they are a tad gossipy, I talk about people there... but select subscribers can get it... $15 a pop... and worth it, if you are are willing to change your mind... Most never will. You can email me for a link... and I'll decide if I want you to have it or not.

Mental Models: relate to and solve problems with different, fundamentally different perspectives of reality

Predatory Genes and Quantum reality: There is order in the universe, even if it is not readily observable to you

The visible order, what you can see, is just the top 1%. Below that there is 99% that is order, but you can't see it.

The more you are of the persuasion that there is a way the world should be, you should be, society should be, to the same degree you are blind, and unsuccessful if you act, and stuck if you don't.

Of course you expect the order to be obvious, with clear rules, so you don't have to be responsible for thinking, observing, adjusting your actions to how it is... and ultimately for any of your actions, any of your results.

Predatory genes combined with human culture are deadly, deadly in its consequences. Continue reading "Predatory Genes and Quantum reality: There is order in the universe, even if it is not readily observable to you"

Transcendence is going beyond right and wrong…

What is real? What is made up? How can you tell?

HAPPINESS is a function of accepting what is
LOVE is a function of communication
HEALTH is a function of participation
SELF-EXPRESSION is a function of responsibility
~Werner Erhard

Sounds amazing, doesn't it? But, to begin with the phrase "a function of" is slimy... because it doesn't say it does that... not at all.

So in my work with a bunch of normal people, ordinary people, neither smart, nor stupid, neither diligent nor too lazy, neither brave, nor too cowardly, blah blah blah... I am proving that what Werner Erhard said is largely b.s.

The truth value of Werner's famous statements is 10%...

Just like 99.5% everything you read on the Internet. That means only one thing out of 200 things, book, article, meme, quote, video, etc. has a truth value higher than 10%.

But 10% truth value means: 90% hogwash. Mistaken, misguided, narrow cone of vision, wearing blinders, or outright lie.

    • The Old Testament: truth value: 30%
    • The New Testament: truth value: 3%

If you just stopped doing what you know is bad for you…

If you just stopped doing what you know is bad for you...

I am not a scientist, not a doctor, but...

I pay attention. I experiment. And I muscle test while I am connected to Source.

It's cherry time in the United States, and Aldi had a special price on cherries. I could not resist.

I bought a big bag... two and a half pounds... and as predictable, I ate it all in one sitting.

The insights I'll share in this article are very important knowledge that I have suspected, but haven't seen it this clearly before. Continue reading "If you just stopped doing what you know is bad for you…"

What does that nice cup of coffee or tea have to do with having a Self?

How much voice do YOU have in the chorus of the voices that live in your head?

It's Thursday morning, and I am starting a new experiment.

Yesterday I discovered that I have no idea what it is like to eat when you have an appetite. I observed myself, and I solely eat, have been eating, for taste. Texture. The mouthfeel.

But my physiology wants me to eat for appetite. 1 Bummer, I don't know the first thing about appetite... 🙁
.
I look at different languages to get a clue... In Hungarian appetite, the word, says "the desire to eat". Hm. In other languages there are appetizers... that grow that desire to eat, or maybe to wake up the dormant desire?

What are guiding feelings vs. emotions? Are you guided to look away? Run?

I would never have thought of asking this question prior to reading Margoczi's books, Feelings and Words a few years ago.

The truth value of those books is about 40%... more for reasons of omission than for reasons of false teaching.

I have learned in Landmark Education that regret, remorse, resentment, the "infamous" three R's are useless, and harmful.

I dare to differ.

  • They may be useless if you are unwilling to take responsibility for what they are signaling.
  • They may be useless or harmful if you make them your mood for life... pretending that you are a victim... you were never a victim, although you may have had abuse, misuse, or failures in your life.

What makes you a victim (also called an effect) is the unwillingness to take responsibility for what belongs to you... Continue reading "What are guiding feelings vs. emotions? Are you guided to look away? Run?"
