Okay. This is part two for whatever day it is. Thursday. So what I said in the previous segment is that until you can tell the difference between what you say and what the machine says, there's no chance that you can change your context. Now, it's a little bit deeper than that. Because ... and that's why without integrity nothing works. It's an integrity issue. Now, we consider integrity in a very pedestrian way. You don't cheat, you don't lie, you keep the Ten Commandments and all that morality issue. But, that is not what integrity really is.
Integrity is that, but it is just the bottom of integrity. The real integrity has something to do with word.
If we took an inventory of your life... If I followed you around for a day, a week, a month... How many of your actions are planting seeds for the future you desire, how many are planting seeds to no results, or undesired results?
Most people plant no seeds. Some plant seeds but then forget about watering them, and the weeds or the dryness kills the seeds before they can even sprout.
Most people think that the world rotates around them, should play according to their rules, and their rules are: give it to me now, because I want it.
Manifestation, the law of attraction, mind movies, instant healing, the "bars", incantation, shamanism, and thousands of fraudulent abusive modalities all capitalize on this warped world view to make it all right for you.
Lots of questions are coming up... Is it possible to be happy, to have ikigai, purpose, and joy if you live in your imagination?
What is the main difference between animals and homo sapiens?
The only differences I can see are
1. homo sapiens (modern humans) live in the mind... thinking it's reality
2. homo sapiens have conscience
3. homo sapiens live like anything different from what they want is wrong.
4. homo sapiens have usury relationships, win-lose, zero sum.
I have written a lot of articles about living in the mind, and have courses to help you spend at least some of your time outside of the mind that is like a cave...
When you love yourself: you love your life. And that is the closest we know to be a happy person.
And you want to be happy, right? It feels like your birthright. Even though I can't specifically point at anyone who is happy... it IS your birthright.
Birthright or not birthright, we all want to be happy... even though no one has been able to explain how to become happy... so it seems that it will remain a desire... never to be fulfilled. Hope and hopeless... or resigned is our dominant state.
The closest experience to happiness is contentment, with life, with yourself.
When you love yourself you love your life... but how can you?
Out of integrity, lying, coveting, envy, vengeance, hate can be compared to indigestion
Lying etc. is like indigestion.
In indigestion you give the body something to eat that the body cannot use as food. Either because it is not really food, or because it is beyond the body's ability to use it all as food.
The body makes you feel discomfort. Surprisingly this discomfort feels a lot like hunger. Exactly the opposite of what would work... I think it is our interpretation of the signal that is at fault. We seem to interpret everything as a signal to eat, to consume, to get more and more and more. Of everything.
And this is where the similarity shines most.
When you lie, betray, cheat, harm, etc. and you know that you do, you need to pile up the sh*t... you need to lie more, betray more, cheat more, harm more.
It's work for me. It's hard on my body having to be with their resistance, fear, or whatever they are feeling. It's often talking to people whom, in normal circumstances, I would avoid. Why? Because they are argumentative, because they are often hostile, and because only one in 13 knows that I am an empath, what is an empath, and how I got to the measurements I got to. So they never did any work on knowing what they are paying for.
So, it's hard. And yet. Sitting in my ivory tower is not useful any more.
Each person brings something to light I would not have otherwise seen.
For example a person yesterday. Soul correction "Finish What You Start"... I have other people with this soul correction, and they are argumentative. But I never realized that this is part of this soul correction. Arguing is a type of resistance: you block input and you put yourself in control... I don't do well with people who argue. They, intentionally, put me on the defensive, and I have nothing to defend...
So for this learning I am grateful. I don't work well with this type of soul correction... with this type of attitude.
The second thing I learned from this person is through a question he asked:
How come that I am still doing so poorly after I have invested so much into spiritual teaching?
((Everybody wants to teach what you can't fathom. Everybody thinks they have a gift to give to humanity. But what they miss is that the only gift you need to give is yourself... by becoming all you can become... not some fancy words... that from YOUR mouth they are red-faced lies. And when you become a spiritual teacher, or mindset teacher, you cannot grow, because the inner tension won't allow you... The most wretched of all are the ones that pretend that they have something to give, something that they don't actually have.)) Continue reading "You have invested so much into spiritual teaching!"
