A vibrational review of Michael Simmons, and the introduction of the occurrence mental model you want to get rid of

Mental Models: relate to and solve problems with different, fundamentally different views (perspectives) of reality

It doesn't take high IQ... it takes the ability (spiritual/mental capacities need to be activated in your DNA through application) to look at things in different ways.

You have an innate, most likely emotions-based mental model, where you judge things by how you feel about them or the person who recommends/sells them.

What clues you in that you are using a mental model is the word: know/don't know

And that is, of course, all the time.

Some mental models are more useful than others, but all of them are imprecise. Why? Because "reality is collective hunch... at best." Continue reading "A vibrational review of Michael Simmons, and the introduction of the occurrence mental model you want to get rid of"

You never feel bad about what you think you feel bad about

Homo Sapiens, as a species, is pretty messed up. Everything sets its emotions off, and the specimen gets all emotional, angry, afraid, violent, or sad and depressed.

This emotional reactivity makes getting things done near impossible, learning, or having people together pretty hopeless.

Almost all diseases are a consequence of this phenomenon... people eat to soothe themselves. People eat to eat another out of their fortune. People eat to feel superior. People eat to get some enjoyment out of life.

And they eat to fix the damage that overeating caused, and do all kinds of unnecessary things to reduce the damage. Continue reading "You never feel bad about what you think you feel bad about"

The suppressed ambition… awakening your inner motive power

Although I use this iconic picture from the French protest... this is not a political article... Something, deep inside the French was activated by the new tax on fuel... and moved them to action...

In this article I want to talk about how to awaken that inner, deeply buried energy that could set you free. The caged desire. A suppressed desire.

Rob Brezsny, and many of his similar positive thinking contemporaries, cannot see, will not see, unwilling to see that not everyone is capable to do, see, understand, use everything.

This is my biggest beef with Landmark Education, or any other marketing organization or person: they lie. They pretend that you can do it, you can see it, you can understand it, you can use it. Continue reading "The suppressed ambition… awakening your inner motive power"

To what degree do you fulfill others’ expectations of you?

I had an experience this morning that made me look and made me ponder.

The number of times my site is recommended by google has dropped to one third in the past two-three months.

I wasn't sure why... so yesterday they told me: it is because I am not getting any visitors from Pinterest. That is weird... why would I want get any visitors from Pinterest, and if I did... what would they want on my site? I don't sell clothes, pretty nick-knacks... that is what Pinterest users want, right? Pretty stuff...

So I looked up my stats software and I found that I had 51 visitors from Pinterest. They stayed anywhere from 1 second to 3 seconds, meaning: they weren't interested in what I have to offer, not in the least. Continue reading "To what degree do you fulfill others’ expectations of you?"

“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”

...poet and filmmaker Jean Cocteau said.

  • 1. "There are truths that you can only say after having won the right to say them."
  • 2. "True realism consists in revealing the surprising things that habit keeps covered and prevents us from seeing."
  • 3. "What the public criticizes in you, cultivate. It is you."
  • 4. "You should always talk well about yourself! The word spreads around, and in the end, no one remembers where it started."
  • 5. "We shelter an angel within us. We must be the guardians of that angel.

IF THE ANGEL DECIDES TO COME . . .

"If the Angel decides to come it will be because you have convinced her, not by tears, but by your humble resolve to be always beginning; to be a beginner." ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

I sound like a broken record... but I must share when I can see more of what I need to see to train you to raise your vibration.

I have been seeing (concluding) that there may be a linchpin type of lock, measured in your starting point measurements... #11. To what degree you think of yourself: Continue reading "“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”"

How high can you go from where you are?

I monitor visitor behavior on my site... to see how they treat my articles... I spend a few minutes a week, in the morning. It often gives me an idea of what to write about, what to teach next.

This article is a result of that few minutes of looking today.

Oh, I mostly look at people who signed up to get an email notification each time I publish a new article... by the way. Those people have expressed interest, so I want to see what people who say "I am interested" are doing.

There are two kinds of "readers" that I have detected.

  • The first kind reads the whole article, reads the footnotes, and then returns later and reads the article again.
  • The second kind skims the articles. Skims 2-3 articles per minute, looking for something interesting to read.

The god shape hole that keeps you wanting…

Rob Brezsny writes: U2's singer Bono, says that all of us suffer from the sense that something's missing from our lives. We imagine that we lack an essential quality or experience, and its absence makes us feel sad and insufficient. French philosopher Blaise Pascal referred to this emptiness as "a God-shaped hole." Bono adds that "you can never completely fill that hole," but you may find partial fixes through love and sex, creative expression, family, meaningful work, parenting, activism, and spiritual devotion. I bring this to your attention, because I have a strong suspicion that in the coming weeks you will have more power to fill your God-shaped hole than you've had in a long time.

If you look at Bono's take on the human condition, that we are designed to be forever somewhat unfulfilled, to experience a gnawing black hole in our insides, what Bono calls the "god-shaped hole" a 3% truth value statement... then, muscle test says, the truth part is that some things provide temporary relief, reprieve from the feeling of that emptiness, but it is his list that is flawed... not the idea: him including meaningful work, for example, don't belong to the list. Neither does creative expression... the rest: it depends on you. Parenting could fulfill you, but often you don't know what the heck you are doing, so it leaves the hole unfilled.

The idea that this hole is part and parcel with being human is valid empirically, and it also makes sense that a physically weak species can only survive if they have this desire to be more, to know more. Continue reading "The god shape hole that keeps you wanting…"

Cats leave paw prints on your heart…

I have a magnet on my refrigerator door that says: Cats leave paw prints on your heart.

And they do. You remember your pets fondly... and often.

I remember one woman, often, and fondly, even though she was an enigma to me.

We met at the psych ward and spent some time, every day, together. I met her husband, son, and mother in law... whom I knew from work: she was an acoustic engineer advising me when I was the architect for acoustic practice rooms for the Hungarian Academy of Music.

My friend was in the psych board because she could not sleep. I was there because I didn't want to live. Continue reading "Cats leave paw prints on your heart…"

If you can’t beat them… join them

Warning: lots of footnotes in this article!

I am Jewish...

Jewish people are not genetically smarter than non-Jews... In fact, no ethnic groups are genetically smarter than others. And yet, certain groups test better both on tests and in life.

The kind of smarts Jewish or, for example, Chinese or Korean, people manifest is LEARNED.

The process of becoming a genius…

Notice that you want to do things out of order...

...for example: fix something that you don't understand what it is, you just KNOW that it's wrong. Put the cart in front of the horse. Never bother to find the cause... the real cause of anything... the laws of nature.

You may be doing all the steps that can produce the results you want, but what happens if and when you are doing them out of order? Or you don't give enough time to each step to perform its magic, out of greed or hunger or impatience?

You'll lose time... you'll lose money... and you'll lose your faith. Continue reading "The process of becoming a genius…"
