I spent a few hours this week reading really old emails from two of my clients. I was especially interested in their early emails… maybe so I can see what changed?
When you talk to someone nearly every day, it is hard to notice the changes…
So periodically going back and seeing some of the things they said six years ago is really useful in this regard.
I have my customer/client emails saved, all of them, grouped by client, so I didn’t even have to search… Just pick a client, and read…
One of these guys went on and on and on how much he doesn’t want to be human. How much he doesn’t want to be part of the human condition. Live in the Valley of the Shadow of Death. Continue reading “How to beat the ‘human condition’ successfully and become a happy person at no one’s expense?”
I am reading an amazing AND disturbing book. Again.
I have been heeding the words of my teacher, Robert S. Hartman, that to fight evil, you need to know evil, intimately. Be able to recognize it everywhere… in yourself and in others.
Like yourself, I prefer to look at pretty, beautiful, harmonious, happy… But if you want to tell the truth, there is not much of that, at least where humans are involved.
Even the best actions a human makes is all about them… all about desire to receive for the self alone. Their reputation, their station in the world, them feeling good about themselves at the expense of another.
I also can’t avoid feeling it… I am an empath. No matter where I go, no matter where I look, some horrid inner turmoil of some person, wholly unrelated to what I am doing, is taking over my body. Ugh.
Desire to receive for the self alone feels like a turmoil, a rift between your two selves.
There are the people to whom I have to connect, my clients and my students. Continue reading “Why does the future of the planet look the way it looks? Bad…”

Astute, astuteness has a bad reputation… so do the words: selling, ambitious… or taking care of yourself. But it is unjust, in fact it is against Life.
But, unfortunately, we live in an age where being selfless seems like a virtue… but it isn’t a virtue, it is imposed upon us.
It is stupid and a learned ‘value’…
The best people in the world are selfish…
Selfish… meaning: they take care of themselves… instead of hoping that others will be selfless and take care of them. And then they can contribute… from being well and being taken care of.
No matter how many times people understand, on airplanes, that when the oxygen masks are dropped at them, they should put on their own first… and then assist others… Because they see it there, but the ability to see it everywhere would require a wider cone of vision than they have… Take care of yourself first doesn’t live like a distinction, it lives as an example that is true on airplanes. Continue reading “Beyond brain health: What robs you of the ability to make astute decisions?”
I have two recordable calls every Sunday. Recordable means: I can or could sell it for at least a hundred bucks… because in the right hands they are worth ten times more than that.
In the right hands.
There are few who have the right hands.
I like to work with people who can get, who will get, at least as much value as much money I charge, but I’d love to work with people who could and would get the full value… ten times more.
Keep on dreaming, Sophie, and I do.
I totally overextend myself every Friday/Saturday and Sunday, so on Mondays I am literally spent. This Monday wasn’t an exception… Continue reading “Oy vey there she is, ranting again…”
I am observing, I am witnessing the conversation in my discussion group. Great market research! lol. I find out what people don’t know. What people don’t understand.
One of the differences between animals and humans is humans’ arrogance.
When you watch animals, the parents, the elders, teach the young ones all that is teachable. Otherwise their species would die out: there is a lot to know to be safe, to live long enough to create offspring themselves and contribute to the survival of their species.
Humans are attempting to do the same, but never tell their offspring, never told you, that the purpose of education is to know what the generations before yours discovered for themselves, so you can stand on their shoulders and not have to discover all that, again, the hard way.

Either everybody counts or nobody counts… this is the principle that makes Michael Connelly’s books so dear to me. Obviously, to me, that labels me as a commie, a Democrat, a lefty… but I really don’t care… It’s your issue, not mine. My job is to be true to my principles.
I like crime novels. Most of them are clean and most of them go into the details that allow me to be forced to ride on the surface, to turn the page too eagerly, but stay on the page I am on: savoring it. Rare to find books like that.
No FOMO, I am where I am supposed to be. No desire to be anywhere else, doing anything other than what I am doing.
Priceless. Continue reading “Does everybody really count, or is that a seductive slogan?”
This article isn’t about the law of attraction… it is about the Law of Cause and Effect… about time and about how nature cannot be tricked… it will give you what you paid for… eventually…
You can look at your activities and predict what your life is like, and whether you are building a life, i.e. investing, or harvesting and harvesting and harvesting without ever sawing.
I spend 60% of my time listening to audios, partner calls, the book of The Art of Hunting Humans, 20% of my time reading and the remaining 20% is for talking, writing, or cooking.
This means: I have a headset on me every waking hour, even while I am reading… Not music, it is hearing myself breathe on the Big Bundle energy audio.
Why am I sharing this with you?
Because I am working TOWARDS something… and I am investing my time. 99% of my activities are investing type. I am investing in two things:
- a life that is longer than I had earned until now, and
- knowledge and insights that can turn into real teaching for altering the future of the planet… Yeah, big things… big things worth investing in.

I don’t know what I am doing… but my life seems to be going in the right direction
Most successful people, if and when you ask them, they don’t have a theory, they don’t have a grand scheme of things, they are just doing what they are doing and it works. In one area of life…
Wherever they are successful.
Work, or health, ot relationships, or money… etc. Continue reading “Do you know what you are doing? Debunking the myth of knowing…”
An experiment is always successful. It is successful at showing what it shows. Whether you interpret accurately what it shows or not… is up to you. And then what you do with what it suggests is up to you…
“Do not be timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Considering my life, life is an experiment has been probably the best thing I’ve ever invented for myself. Why? Because it killed 90% of the voices inside that said that I was stupid, that I was a loser, that nobody will ever love me.
I hate learning new things… Why?
Yeah, why would anyone hate learning new things?
What does learning new things means? REALLY REALLY MEAN? About you…. Continue reading “Life is an experiment. Unless you only have good and bad, successful or failure in your vocabulary”
The invisible tail that wags the dog… Or what is invisible to you is behind and underneath your emotions, your actions, your desires…
It’s invisible for the dog and it is invisible or mis-identified for the observer…
And, of course I am talking about humans… but found no quote that talks about humans in this context. Though the treasure trove of information about dogs, and foxes and their tails is very entertaining, I can say with some certainty, that humans know dogs and foxes better than themselves.
That includes you and me. Continue reading “The invisible tail that wags the dog… The human condition”
