What is the connection between respect and appreciation? Both respect and appreciation are spiritual capacities... states of being.
I am having a lot of insights lately. Of course, it was predictable: I am running an experimental workshop: it is driving up the questions.
When you have questions, relevant questions, you are going to get insights. Irrelevant questions? no insights.
Anyway, the circumstance this morning is this: I accidentally double-paid for the Tai Lopez course. Sent a support request to get a refund, and they answered that their policy was to talk to me, to make sure I was who I said I was.
I have been fuming about this. I mean my lower parts are fuming, and I, the Self, have been observing it with curiosity. Very strong emotions, by the way...
Often the only way you'll notice your attitude when it goes away.
This is exactly what happened to me today. It started yesterday with a dull distaste in my belly, and today, as I was doing some research, it flipped... and I was left with seeing clearly that my arrogance and maybe condescension was an attitude.
It is hard to see oneself... but I got a glimpse of myself in this.
I am an experimenter, in spite of the support I get from Source.
I get answers, but sometimes I have wrong questions: questions that take me on a loop.
Health is the main area of loops... A loop is when you spend time battling windmills as if they were giants, like Don Quixote.
Your starting point measurements paint an accurate picture of you... But here is something it won't tell me: can you ask intelligent questions? I am learning in my strategy sessions that indeed you can't.
Questions that no one is asking are very telling. They are indicative of the direction I want to go.
Desire vs ambition. What is the difference? Which one should you have?
For most people words mean something... approximately. Their life reflects this unclarity. Clarity is one of the most important determinants of one's life... this is why I measure it in the starting point measurements.
I watched a guy who until his clarity went up to 3500, he was miserable.
Most people I measure have a clarity of 200-400. Puny at best, sh*tty life. Guaranteed.
Ok, desire and ambition. Let's agree what the words mean... energetically.
Desire is 100% desire for the self alone. Wanting something for yourself but not being willing, not even considering doing work to get it. If someone else has what you want, you envy it, you are jealous of them... but to match the work they did... hell no.
Ambition, on the other hand is a willingness to work, to sweat, to do for one's own fulfillment. The higher your ambition the more you can accomplish the faster.
How to raise your consciousness to guru level in 18 months?
This article is seven years old...
I had a conversation with a friend of mine. She was the kind of friend who was in and out of my life... she lived a dramatic life and she needed help, technical, health, money, legal... that was the basis of our relationship.
I used to be the kind of person she was, and I have compassion. She didn't bring me down, and I enjoyed her unique view of life... she was a transgendered person, was born a man, and she lived as a woman. She never changed her name... she once got kicked out of an apartment because her name said Jeffrey (not her real name.)
I am not religious. And yet, I have learned, over the years, from Christian religious booklets and articles.
This article has allowed me to understand what happens to a person when they decide to pay me for their starting point measurements... and what happens when they receive it.
Read this article, and I'll continue explaining what I learned after this quoted article.
Why Do We Major in the Minors?
from R.C. Sproul May 14, 2016 Category: Articles
The Pharisees distorted the emphasis of biblical righteousness to suit their own behavioral patterns of self-justification.
Jesus frequently confronted the Pharisees on this point. Jesus said to them, “You tithe mint and dill and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness” (Matt. 23:23a).
On numerous occasions, Jesus acknowledged that the Pharisees scrupulously obeyed some points of the law. They paid their tithes, they read their Scriptures, they did a host of things the law required--and Jesus commended them for their actions, saying, “These you ought to have done” (Matt. 23:23b).
However, it was the emphasis that was out of kilter. They scrupulously tithed, but in doing so they used their obedience to this lesser matter as a cloak to cover up their refusal to obey the weightier matters of justice and mercy. That distortion occurs today.
