The secret of becoming impervious… the secret that really successful people don’t even know they have…

Impervious means: unaffected by, untouched by, immune to, invulnerable to, insusceptible to, resistant to, indifferent to, heedless of, insensible to, "he seemed impervious to the chill wind", impervious to insults, impervious to fear

Of course no one is impervious to anything really, or they would be dead... You need to be present and notice attacks, malicious intention, fear, pain, and everything that you need to protect yourself from.

The impervious we are talking about is the emotional unshakeability that spares you from a life of a roller coaster, from being reactive, from being judgmental, for going into despair or going to mania.

The kind of inner environment where you can actually have joy, contentment, and workability. Where you "horse" doesn't run away with you, hijacking you at the slightest irritation.

The best diet interview I have ever listened to

I have known Glenn Livingston for about 10 years now as a marketing guru... and it was weird to find out that he wrote this best selling diet book, Never Binge Again. Kindle edition is free on Amazon.

Here is an interview on youtube, 30% truth value, and he is the clearest, most accessible I have ever seen him.

Enjoy.

PS: he uses a version of the Amish Horse Training method, and speaks it clearer than I do. So if you have been struggling to make sense of it... here is your chance.

How do you know what you are afraid of? Why you are afraid… even when you have no reason to be.

what are you afraid of?It was 1991. Georgia... some miles from Atlanta, in a hunting lodge. November. Communication Commando Course.

Just the name was enough to put the fear of god in me. But then they ushered me in this little room where I needed to answer some questions about myself, name, age, where I live, who I live with... in front of a camera.

Now, by that time I had been on television twice, seen and recognized by millions of people. And yet, I was terrified.

What was I afraid of?

This is what this article is about... what is it that you are afraid of, that you cannot tell what it is, but it is as real as that if they keep you underwater long enough, you'll be dead. Dead dead.... Continue reading "How do you know what you are afraid of? Why you are afraid… even when you have no reason to be."

The Dark Side… is there a Dark Side? and if there is… what is it?

In my view, there is no god, there are no angels, entities, and such. There is also no devil, no hell, no heaven, no afterlife.

But, because humans even on this level of evolution where we are, can create stuff with their thoughts... gods and angels and entities and other stuff.

So at this point (it may change in the future if research and experiments reveal stuff I am not seeing now) my theory is that there is Dark Side and it is created by humans. It's all thoughts.

Now, with that said, where does it come from what I say, that the voices you hear in your head are the Dark Side? Or the memes...

Because I say that.

So, what do I consider Dark Side? Continue reading "The Dark Side… is there a Dark Side? and if there is… what is it?"

Approximately… the price you pay for being casual and democratic

I have been telling you, telling my students, telling my clients, that you hear what I say... approximately. You follow instructions... approximately. You read... approximately. You keep your diet... approximately. You live... approximately.

You only got up this morning because you didn't die the night before.

I am re-reading The Baroque Cycle by Neal Stephenson. 2600 pages... What can I say, I like long books. lol.

I have started to check every word in the kindle's built in dictionary some time ago. Maybe a year ago, maybe two. I originally read the Baroque Cycle four years ago.

The book has plenty of words I needed to check. And to my dismay, I found that the first time around I only understood what happened... approximately.

Approximately is missing 90% plus of what you read, and you are left with the inconsequential 10%. The stuff you already knew. The gossipy stuff. The mundane stuff. The stuff that allows you to remain the same, your world view to remain the same.

Looking at things from a burka… can you take off the burka and yet see the same?

I read. I read a lot. I read and re-read books that I like.

So now I am re-reading Neal Stephenson's historical fiction of the 17th-18th century... 1

One of the characters in the book is Eliza who in her very young years was a slave, harem girl. She is about 45 at the time of the book.

She is in a carriage, that reminds her of the time of her harem-girl time, when she and other girls were taken to outings dressed in a burka... the point of similarity between the two times.

Seeing the world through a slit or the small opening of a burka. Continue reading "Looking at things from a burka… can you take off the burka and yet see the same?"

The allure of fast… fast money, fast success, fast learning, fast reading

I write about what is not obvious...

I have said before, that when you feel envy, when you feel a pang of envy looking at someone's result, accomplishments, you feel guidance.

You want what they have, and it points to an area of growth, an area of training where you have enough energy to get to the same level, or maybe even beyond.

A year or so ago I was still a blob... Overweight. I saw it mostly on Tuesdays, when I looked at myself in the big wall covering mirror in during the exercise class.

One of the women, long white hair, was my opposite: shapely. She even had a waist... lol. I didn't.

I looked at her, and said to her: I want what you have.

The fear of finding out… the fear of being found out

We have the real self and the false self, there's nothing wrong with them, and everyone has both of them.

Given the two selves everyone has, being afraid to be found out is normal.

And being afraid to upset the apple cart aka ess (evolutionary stable strategy) is even more obvious. 1

In playing Freecell, one of the things I am experimenting with is moving stuff around, so the covered cards can be revealed.

It's not a hasty, scrambling type of move... it is methodical, and scary.

Human tendency is to hold onto your gains. The ess. Every time I experience the resistance, I bring in the "upsetting the apple cart" and then I experience the breakthrough.

If it is a principle that all the power is tied up in the hidden dimension, what is hidden from your view...

Are you working on your pretend self? Trying to make it better? Read this article for clues…

I have students at all different stages of their personal paths.

I, as a coach, can do only so much. I answer their posts, and then I write my articles. And the rest happens where I am not. Inside them, in their interaction with people, in their interaction with stuff.

This is the hardest part.

My soul correction is Forget Thyself... meaning I want to be personally causing stuff... I did it, Me, Mine. Talking over people, having no patience for people doing things the "wrong way".

I have been gaining ground in my soul correction, but it is still wicked difficult. Especially when someone has a good result that has nothing to do with me... lol.

So my first reaction to a student breakthrough is feeling let down... I didn't do it... lol.

This is what happened this morning.

A student of mine had a glimpse, a momentary clarity of who and how he really is... His real self...

Here is what he wrote: Continue reading "Are you working on your pretend self? Trying to make it better? Read this article for clues…"

Become like god… create with your word… but how?

I bet you want to be able to create with your word... right? But your attempts have been failed attempts...

Here is some clarification why that doesn't work, even though you have the capacity... but it isn't working.

I woke up early today. I woke up from probably the best-feeling dream I have ever had.

I was in some kind of exam, and I was compared, paired up, grouped with people who were decades younger, and miles below my knowledge level.

But they were home, and I was an alien. Alien to the country, not a space alien.

Anyway, there was this teacher, who worked with me... Forgot to say that the exam was in another language... not any of the languages I already speak.

The teacher and I worked. On the day of the exam I left him home to sleep, and went to the exam by myself. Continue reading "Become like god… create with your word… but how?"
