OK, I am in the middle of writing an article, but this hit my inbox and enough of you have been asking for some advice on what to practice... so here it is: observe Keanu Reeves, and learn to be like him...
Can you? The answer is: probably not... but... by learning and internalizing what he is doing as humility, etc, you'll have more of reality and more ways to be than you are being now.
Don't be mistaken: humanity is arrogant. Haughty. Self-centered. Self-aggrandizing. The opposite of what Keanu Reeves is, and the opposite of what would make you life a life worth living.
"You can only kick with one foot at a time, Otherwise you fall on your arse."
You can only pick one thing that you want out of life, and if you pick the wrong thing, you'll never be successful.
...Joel Salatin said, "the worst thing in life is to get older and realize you got good at the wrong thing."
You would think that the title is about multi-tasking. But it isn't. It is a life that is un-integrated.
So what is an integrated life?
A life is like a symphonic orchestra.
Most people's life sounds like the tuning the instruments phase of the orchestra: cacophony. Bad noise.
Only when the conductor shows up, raps his baton against the music sheets, silence, and music starts. All instruments read the same music sheets, all keep their eyes on the conductor... Integration happens.
I just got an email from Bill Harris of Holosync fame... A man I despise. He is hawking a book and a woman called Dawn Clark, who wrote a book that is right up my alley: change your dna something or another to make money. 1
So I went to the Dawn Clark's site, watched her on a video, listened to her voice, and here is my "review": the woman's vibration is 100. The truth value of she says is 1%, so 99% is a lie.
She is talking about stuff she knows nothing about.
If and when you are a fraud, you make your success with teaching people stuff you cannot do. Don't want to do. Have never done.
This is an article from The Atlantic... Hint: not by discussing IQ The I here is James Fallows... although I tend to agree with him. this is a companion article to my previous article on self-esteem...
If you just want to know what people who are actually smart think of themselves... talk about themselves, jump there...

I've never met or interviewed Donald Trump, though like most of the world I feel amply exposed to his outlooks and styles of expression. So I can't say whether, in person, he somehow conveys the edge, the sparkle, the ability to connect, the layers of meaning that we usually associate with both emotional and analytical intelligence.
A video that makes me cry every time i watch it deserved to be watched again and again.
There is no direct relevance of the content: cheating, to me or my life. And yet, the way Esther Perel speaks about cheating and relationships is the finest example of seeing A is A... so it is right up our alley... Yours, mine. So watch it... again.
It's about cheating and affairs.
But it talks to all people... it talked to me, made me weep, opened my eyes... Please watch it.
I just listened to this Earl Nightingale talk... eleven minutes or so.
I had never heard it...
It struck me how everything was invented so many times in history... and however many times it was invented, like how to get from where you are to being in the top few percent of the world, millions of people can listen to you and they will miss it.
Why? Because, I think, because opportunity comes in work clothes... Opportunity looks like work. And what people hope opportunity is is like a windfall... it befalls you... lol.
Enjoy the video. Even if you miss it, it is fun to listen.
I am republishing this article, because it is one of the most important things to get... That context is decisive.
I have been trying to teach context, but context is a very difficult concept: it is like looking at the sky behind the clouds.
A cloud against a blue sky is a very different cloud than against a black twirling mass of angry space...
When you have a feeling, a sensation, like a kick in the stomach, it means different things when you are pregnant, when you are psychically attacked, when the phone rings... etc. The kick is the same, the context is what changed.
