I have been reading articles, studies, even books to get more effective at teaching you. Yesterday I learned some new words for my accurate vocabulary:
intellectual virtues/intellectual vices
character virtues/character vices
physical virtues/physical vices
In my field... self-evolution, self-improvement, self-growth, one of the things I am seeing makes my stomach turn: a widespread phenomenon of being a Milque Toast... i.e. squeamish, i.e. looking only at the bright side of things.
This article has turned out to be quite a novella... Read it when you have time... probably not now. Or listen to it
Of all the things that are different between homo sapiens and human being, the hardest thing, the highest and most treacherous mountain to scale and stay on the top of, is the idea of a being that is missing... i.e. a context.
You may be familiar, even conversant about beings that are there... I am happy, I am sad, I am stupid... but a being that isn't... is entirely outside of your ability to see.
See, as in seeing it as possible. Seeing it as something you can discover, invent for yourself. Create.
This article is based on Wallace D. Wattles' famous third book, The Science Of Being Great and, of course, what I have to say about the topic.
We all want to be great... or at least be considered great, and we all fall short... because we are NOT great, not great at all. The gap between what we hope and what we produce keeps us, overtly or covertly miserable and self-hating.
By being great Wallace D. Wattles means someone who tunes in to All-Knowledge AND acts in a Certain Way. Neither of it is typical... neither of it is practiced by the majority, although all consider it a standard, an ideal... for others.
This chapter establishes the grounds from which Wattles builds his theory: Human being is miserable unless he is growing. Miserable, unless he is advancing. By nature...
I am definitely an example of being able to tune into the All-Knowledge, and am a student of acting in a Certain Way. I am not there much of the time... maybe not even 80%. But the quality of my life is incomparable with what it was before I started practicing the Certain Way.
Read and heed. You'll know if you are ready to hear this or not. How will you know? This will sound like good news if you are ready. And boring or not for you, if you are not. Or worse than that: you'll think of all the people for whom this should be a must, but not you... (Especially if your soul correction is "Removing The Dark Side".
You can have a high IQ, and yet be a slacker in life.
Why? Because IQ is still only a potential of the brain... not independent of what you use or not use, what you expose yourself or not...
I once had an employee who I hired because she was a Mensa Society member. Mensa only accepts people to be members whose IQ tests say they are above 130... I think. But, between you and me, she was a useless employee and I had to let her go.
Sometimes the only way for you to notice what a prick you have been, is to change your ways and look back. . As I am on the mend, I now have gone outside to walk a little bit to move the fluids inside, the blood, and the lymphatic system. If there are more... I don't know about them. 1
So my constitutional is to make the fluids move... I don't have energy for a lot of walk, about a quarter of a mile is what I CAN walk now... I used to be able to walk for hours.
If you admire the butterfly, then you have low vibration... A butterfly person will not be enamored with a butterfly...
The "I don't like" "I don't want" list, seems to be a very reliable measure of the size of your world and thus your vibration. (You may call it your frequency, or your vibrational frequency... but what the words indicate isn't real... your vibration is better defined in this article.)
When you have low vibration (under 200), the size of your world is tiny, mostly about you, your person, how you feel, etc.
