Give up liberties so you can have true freedom… or how fighting the strings on your puppet self create a life of unhappiness

Do you ever wonder why in spite of all your good qualities, nice acts, maybe even achievements, your vibration is low, maybe even very low?

Everyone hopes that their good acts redeem bad acts, but when we look at vibration: this is not what we find.

You cannot and should not ignore how reality works... so let's look.

Your vibration is almost always lower than you think.

I have started to watch TV shows on the computer recently again, after months of just reading. Continue reading "Give up liberties so you can have true freedom… or how fighting the strings on your puppet self create a life of unhappiness"

Floundering? Can’t seem to get from A to B? Don’t know why nothing seems to work?

Maybe you feel clueless? Maybe you feel left behind?

Here is MY clueless story...

I have been asking questions more than normal.

In the past seven years, my site's readership WAS steadily growing... until a month or two ago when it dropped to approximately half of what it was at that point.

It didn't, or better English, hasn't effected my income, but it looked troubling enough to start asking questions.

The pull to ask why questions is tremendous... Why me, why now, why people don't like me?

Meh... But what other questions can I ask?

Now, that is a really useful question: what other questions can I ask? Continue reading "Floundering? Can’t seem to get from A to B? Don’t know why nothing seems to work?"

Have a mind like a sieve?

It takes more than just insights, or reading, or listening to audios to become a fully equipped person who can live the good life. But what is the fundamental missing piece that so darn few ever benefit from in ANY of the activities they undertake?

With life spent in cars and buildings, our eyes stopped looking and assessing our environments. And with smart phones and computers, our eyes became like stationary search beams, not seeing anything outside of the beam...

But more importantly: out of sight - out of mind: the brain does not connect what you see with anything... nothing is ever written on your brain's hard drive... only into its RAM... and once you look away, it all disappears...

Patterns… or Why do billionaires read books on physics, the ice ages, the shorelines of our planet?


There are many ways to deal with the Universe, with reality, and most of them are ineffective.

The more effectively you "deal" with reality, the more you get out of your life.

Billionaires Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger, Bill Gates, read books on physics, the ice ages, and the shorelines of our planet... and I see how it helps them in dealing with reality. this is what this article is about.

The Anna Karenina Principle applies here. That is what a principle is: it applies everywhere.

A principle is a pattern. Big pattern, small pattern, it IS a pattern.

"Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." By that, Tolstoy meant that for a marriage to be happy, it had to succeed in several key aspects. Failure on even one of these aspects, and the marriage is doomed . . . the Anna Karenina principle also applies to ecological risk assessments involving multiple stressors.

One of my students suggested that the linchpin capacity that humanity isn't exercising is allowing. The 12-step programs say: Let go - Let god...

I have been pondering this ever since I got the email with the suggestion. At first I didn't see the beauty of it, but it is growing on me.

Yeah, if you could let life be life, the Universe be the Universe, spring be spring, the weather be the weather, if you stopped fighting it, trying to fix it, tame it, control it, then you would be able to fall into a rhythm, a harmony, a flow.

When you are fixing something, the solution becomes the next, bigger problem

Human history has gone from problems to bigger problems throughout most of its 200 thousand years.

What is fixing?

Fixing needs something to be wrong. Wrong is a systemic judgment, cultural and personal. It is never true in reality... one could say: there is never anything wrong in reality.

Dying is not wrong, dying is dying. Being sick is not wrong, it is being sick. Being slow, ugly, lazy is not wrong, it is just being slow, ugly, or lazy.

This means that any and all fixing is working on something that doesn't need fixing... so the fixing adds a new wrinkle to things that isn't supposed to be there... the new wrinkle is not natural. It takes you further away from your natural state: joy, productivity, intelligence, wellness. Continue reading "When you are fixing something, the solution becomes the next, bigger problem"
