What is the secret that allows the butterfly to be beautiful and airborne despite of its origin, the caterpillar?

Locked into the cocoon, the caterpillar could not add or change anything about the physical aspects of its body... so it must have been how those physical aspects are organized... something beyond the visible... something you could call "spiritual".

I can teach you to speak butterfly, so you can fly like a butterfly.

The secret between being a caterpillar and a butterfly is in the speaking.

The saying so many people are coming to my site for is: you cannot talk butterfly language to caterpillars.

Now, the truth is: you cannot. The caterpillars out there won't hear it. Won't respond to it.

But you can talk butterfly language to yourself... and whenever you do, you do become a butterfly.

Butterfly vs caterpillar, human being, vs human aka homo sapiens

In the history of the Earth there have been five other attempts for Life to create intelligent life. Millions of years separating them... Atlantis may not be a myth, just didn't happen in our time. Civilizations don't overlap.

Three of those civilizations were destroyed by natural causes, and two of those by the civilization itself... parallel with the current humanity and its civilization a civilization of caterpillars.

Our civilization is heading toward the same self-annihilation, unless... Unless human being happens.

What does it really mean “You must be the change you want to see in the world”?

Today is starting out to be an interesting day.

I am getting thank you emails. And I am getting hate mail.

The hardest thing to see is that in your world you call the shot. Even when you don't know that you are doing that.

Wake up. Everything you want is outside of Plato’s Cave

I love Rob Brezsny's horoscopes. They are a weekly wakeup call... a few lines of text that grab me by the nape and throw out into the real world, to come to my senses.

Here is what he writes about it:

Many of us are essentially asleep, even as we walk around in broad daylight. We're so focused on the restless narratives and repetitive fantasies unfurling in our heads that we only dimly perceive the larger story raging in all of its chaotic beauty around us.

To have any hope of permanently breaking out of our fuzzy trance, we require regular shocks. A single jolt might cause us to briefly come to attention and see the miracle of creation for what it is, but once the red alert has passed, we relax back into our fixation on the dreamy tales our mind never stops telling us.

The three R-s… or how the bad news is a godsend and can be the beginning of something great

On my way home, climbing the long steps off Euclid Avenue, I was listening to Step 21 of the 67 Steps. It's about a superpower of being able to get into a relationship with people because you can recognize how their machine works, and because therefore you can speak their language.

Everything comes to you through people... and you cannot get more abundance than what your skills with people allow you to have.

I have been resigned about my ability to get better at dealing with people. Resigned means: I have a fixed mindset about it, that says: it may be possible for you, but it's impossible for me.

But being resigned doesn't mean I have given up. I haven't. But every time I read someone's stuff, or watch someone's stuff who is good at it, and maybe that is their superpower, I resent them. I do. Not nice, I know, but it's how it is.

It goes hand in glove with resignation. Continue reading "The three R-s… or how the bad news is a godsend and can be the beginning of something great"

What are beliefs? And what keeps you from what you want?

Is there really such a thing as a belief?

One of the things that keep you stuck is the language that you use.

One of the words that definitely hand over the reins to someone else is the word belief.

I, personally, argue that such a thing even exists.

Approaching life, approaching reality, approaching tasks with inadequate tools, antiquated tools will lead to disaster, and that is where you, most of you, find yourself.

Lots of words, lots of books, lots of talking, but no advancement. Neither personally, nor as a race.

As a true empath, I actually see why.

You and everything you read is stuck on the surface. On the seeming working of the Universe, or in this case, the seeming working of a human.

If we dealt with computers, or cars, or even houses the way we deal with, try to fix, etc. humans, ourselves, our thinking, our behavior, we would go back to the stone age. Continue reading "What are beliefs? And what keeps you from what you want?"

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…"

How psychologists, writers, gurus, get it wrong… and nobody is happy, including them

I looked at pictures of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi... who wrote the book Flow, and is an expert on talking about happiness. Not being happy, mind you, on researching happiness.

He doesn't look happy, doesn't feel happy (remember, I am an empath).

I even went and found videos where he speaks Hungarian... hoping to find a picture where he is joyful.

Didn't find any. Not even one.

His insightful quote: "People who learn to control inner experience will be able to determine the quality of their lives, which is as close as any of us can come to being happy." is what was missing for him, and what is missing for most people most of the time. Continue reading "How psychologists, writers, gurus, get it wrong… and nobody is happy, including them"

Everyone talks about reprogramming your mind or brain or whatever part they blame for your lack of success and lackluster life.

Everyone talks about reprogramming your mind or brain or whatever part they blame for your lack of success and lackluster life.

When Tiger Wood discovered that his swing that he trained and won with was actually limiting him, he needed to take time out to "reprogram" his body to do the swing differently.

If you try to program the brain while you keep the current programming, you'll be like me... I was in an Israeli supermarket when this French lady came up to me and asked me if I spoke French. Yes, I said. Can you read the English instructions on this box in French for me?

I started to read it in French, I thought, but turned out I read it in Hebrew, or a mix of French and Hebrew: I could not even tell.

The memory of that fiasco stuck in my mind forever: this was 30 plus years ago.

So what do the "reprogram the mind" people do wrong that no one ever gets reprogrammed, and basically we are all screwed if we follow their teachings?

Before you can write something on a blackboard, and make it dominant, you need to erase what is already there. Continue reading "Everyone talks about reprogramming your mind or brain or whatever part they blame for your lack of success and lackluster life."

Desensitizing you to the mind-noise

Desensitizing

the unexamined lifeI watch Netflix series that don't make sense on the surface for me to watch. But when I look, there is no book, no fiction, that would teach me that principle.

I am looking for principles. Principles are a lot like laws. According to the dictionary, a principle is a fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behavior or for a chain of reasoning.

When things don't work, there is something you don't see... when things don't work, most of the time what you don't see is that the principle or principles upon which you build the thing that isn't working, are not sound principles.

If your premises are false, wrong, or mistaken, whatever you build on it won't work.

Most of humanity's life is a history of false premises. All the statements of what humans are supposed to do, allowed to do, are false premises, popped out of someone's near-sighted, or skewed brain. Continue reading "Desensitizing you to the mind-noise"
