If you can’t even SEE a better future…

My Sunday calls, a kind of podcast with limited accessibility (paid), used to be called Sunday Rants.

A rant is a loud and extended complaint. 1

I am a joyfully exuberant person... I stand out wherever I go, some people love me around, others hate me... I make ripples, I ruffle feathers. I am that way. I don't try to, I don't have a "what to do to appear exuberant"... Continue reading "If you can’t even SEE a better future…"

Are you a dabbler, a sampler, an “I’ll try that” person?

One characteristic of the 99% is that they don't heed Alexander Pope's warning:

"A little learning is a dang'rous thing; / Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring." 1

This behavior even characterizes the 99% of the One Percent.

Why is being a taster, a dabbler, a person who samples, tries out, but never drinks deep from anything keeps you from joining the 1%? Continue reading "Are you a dabbler, a sampler, an “I’ll try that” person?"

The myth that if you are better than…

The myth that if you are better than the average, if you are better than the other guy/gal then you are OK...

If you knew how others view you, if you knew how you rank as a human... really, you'd be up in arms, shouting "bloody murder!" because you are delusional. You can't see the other, you can't see yourself, and you definitely can't see yourself the way others see you... so any and all negative feedback is a surprise and an insult.

But if you are comparing yourself to another 99 percenter... whether they are average, below average, or above average, you are comparing yourself to something irrelevant...

Scientists, statisticians say humanity and its characteristics, intelligence, achievement, health, etc. can be described with the bell curve, where they focus on the average...

But if you ask anyone if they want to be average, they mostly say no... and they fancy themselves as above average.

But even if you are above average, you are comparing yourself against people who you don't respect... who are miserable, unproductive, undisciplined, liars, cheaters, like yourself. Continue reading "The myth that if you are better than…"

You have moments of brilliance… what do you have to show for it?

your holy grailSometimes you need someone else to tell you what you did right, what was the reason so that you succeeded

And if you don't have that someone else, or if they are half-blind like you

... you most likely misidentify the cause... and the success goes away.

This has happened to me countless times... I did something, it created a huge result, I tried to duplicate it and it was a flop...

But, on the other hand, I have now been sustaining a success "streak" for a few months now... Chances have been that it was going to end... until today... because...

I stumbled on Jim Rohn's little known talk on youtube... Continue reading "You have moments of brilliance… what do you have to show for it?"

Today’s solution is tomorrow’s bigger problem… if you are not connected to Consciousness

your holy grailI have updated this post... clarified some things, so read it again...

Humans, YOU, want to fix things...

Fixing is forceful, and narrow cone of vision.

Fixing is low consciousness...

Today's solution is tomorrow's bigger problem.

frankenstein... cobbled togetherYour identity, the things you are known for, your typical behavior have all been fixes... solution to some perceived problem and now you are like a puppet on a string... powerless, inauthentic, and incapable of being happy, peaceful, joyful, and fulfilled.

1. For example, as a kid, I experienced getting hurt because I trusted someone... so I decided to never ever ever ever trust anyone again... I became fiercely independent... in everything. Continue reading "Today’s solution is tomorrow’s bigger problem… if you are not connected to Consciousness"

Witnessing is noticing. Noticing is giving value. Giving value is appreciation…

Without witnessing nothing happens.

Witnessing is noticing. Noticing is giving value. Giving value is appreciation... The word comes from precious: valuable.

So witnessing is giving value.

Why does something needs to be given value?

Because just like nothing is wrong in reality, nothing has value either. Value is always in the eyes of the beholder, value is given. Individually. You give value to something you got: you got something valuable.

Most people don't know this, and therefore never acknowledge the value they got... if they got any value.

Now what happens when you do that? When you don't acknowledge the value you get? Continue reading "Witnessing is noticing. Noticing is giving value. Giving value is appreciation…"

Pattern recognition… or how widely and how deeply do you see?

From time to time I watch an animated feature movie on Netflix.

Those movies have the most clues for inner world patterns of all the movies... even though they are clearly designed to distribute memes... to train the next generation to become sheep.

But the artists that make the movies unwittingly, or defiantly, place some fundamental guidance and truth in those movies.

So it is with this little movie: Leap. (In other languages it is called the Ballerina)

It's about a little orphan girl who lives in an orphanage, but dreams about becoming a dancer... a ballet dancer. She escapes the orphanage and goes to Paris to enroll in the famed ballet institute... to fulfill on her dream.

Through unpredictable events, she does... and though she can't dance... a cleaning lady she finds turns out to be an ex famous dancer, until an accident made her an cripple. And she will become her mentor.

OK, here are the principles in the movie that stirred my inside up and explained a lot of things to me about me: Continue reading "Pattern recognition… or how widely and how deeply do you see?"

Did you feel what you felt?

before you can discern...When you think you are an insomniac... or when you are always tired and you suspect your sleep has issues, what "scientists" do is hook you up to "feelers" to see to what degree reality matches your experience.

I have heard of people who have sleep apnea and wake up hundreds of times a night, just enough to start breathing again. Their consciousness records it... but their conscious awareness doesn't

Consciousness and conscious awareness are not the same. Not even close.

In fact consciousness is not related to conscious awareness... it would be more appropriate to call it The observer, or The Witness.

How would you know?

Now that enough of you are using the consciousness wakeup audio, the Big Bundle (stupid name, isn't it?) and consciousness instruct your unconscious awareness, whatever that is, to do repairs... do you actually know about any of it?

If you do, then you are different from me. I don't. Continue reading "Did you feel what you felt?"

Your fixed emotional response to anything and everything is the source of all your suffering

You probably haven't realized that you have a fixed emotional response/reaction to everything.

I identified it a few years ago. I only realized that it is everywhere just this morning... Why not before? Because to identify it, one needs a self-awareness number higher than 30%.

Is that possible for a homo sapiens? I doubt it.

OK, what is mine? It is what I call "personally offended". The lips slightly protruding an a pout, and the corner of the mouth turned down.

What is the age of this "mood", or this emotion? I'd say 3 years old. Continue reading "Your fixed emotional response to anything and everything is the source of all your suffering"

You expect to f… it up… You expect to succeed…

f__d it up again... or not f... it up... Same thing. both result in no peace, no joy, no good results.

Why would you have that expectation?

Given the reaction you have to that expectation, given the reaction you have to that sentence, devastation when you actually do f... something up, suggests, that you expect yourself to go through life never making a mistake... i.e. Perfection.

You are not alone. Some people give their whole life to that "not"... to that unreality... and suffer, become total underachievers, and altogether unpleasant people no one really wants around. Continue reading "You expect to f… it up… You expect to succeed…"
