I have a call on Sundays with a guy whom I’ve never met. We did a course together back in 2007, were in the same mastermind on Sundays, and we just continued talking ever since…
I work through a lot of my stuff on those calls. I also get to insight I cannot get to, when my mouth is closed, i.e. I am not talking.
It is hard to be silently brilliant, lots of thought occur when you open your mouth.
And occasionally I talk about my students, and other people. Continue reading “Do I need to like you to love you? What is love? What is like?”
I had a weird experience a few minutes ago.
I was working on something for a student of mine and I felt hate. Or maybe disgust.
Then I looked at people I know. I have felt that same feeling towards a lot of people. Like my favorite brother: but I felt that same feeling AND yet I love my favorite brother. WTF, right?
Then I tried it on with my mother, who died this month 24 years ago.
I said: I love my mother and I hate the behavior… and then cried. Really cried. It’s been bottled up for decades, Continue reading “Love, Hate… what is going on? Can you see below the hood?”
I am republishing this article so you can see how much my truth value have risen in the past 10 months with the current Playground… It is not just you who grows… I grow too.
In the noise of the world, an orgy of misdirection, it is hard to feel, see, hear the guidance…
Awareness, especially Self-awareness is missing…
You have been methodically and systematically trained to be unsuccessful
Who trained you? Other unsuccessful people. Your parents, your teachers, your PhD’s, your blog writers, your youtube Heroes.
And of course you buy their b.s., lock stock and barrel, as if it were the god honest truth.
I was somewhat lucky: my parents didn’t talk to me… so they could not mislead me. My teachers didn’t talk to me, there were no blogs…
But, unfortunately, as an empath, other people’s feelings that felt like mine, did mislead me and I paid for it dearly. Continue reading “The Majority is always wrong and how to make decisions the majority doesn’t make”
Most people won’t adhere to a diet that would make them healthy.
Stupidity? Yes, stupidity on a very deep selfish gene level.
It’s NOT that they don’t understand the price they are paying.
It’s that they make choices that the genes are making: not making waves, not bringing attention to themselves, not being different, fitting in is more important than being healthy, having energy, feeling good, calm, being intelligent.
Almost everything “social” is gene directed. I say “almost” because I am humble. I don’t know any social that is NOT gene directed, but there could be, maybe.
So what do the selfish genes want?

Like any mad scientist, I always keep looking to move closer to the horizon that recedes as I am getting closer to it. It seems I am almost there…
But… there is always some boulder is blocking my way.
So what do you do with that boulder in your way?
My answer is quite counter-cultural. I say: you have that boulder there because you need to get familiar, maybe even intimate with it so it will let you continue on your path.

Take care of what takes care of you?
There is a book out there that says “Choose Yourself”. Continue reading “Take care of what takes care of you”
