This morning, while I was measuring someone's starting point measurements, I wondered if there was another word for the desire measure. And it is... drumroll: entitlement. The person feels entitled to get from nature, from the universe, from the world those things that are desired without having to earn it, work for it, barter for it, compete for it... just because they are themselves.

Yesterday, with the Days of Power, I filled up my vessel with The Light... and with that my courage is overflowing. I am not saying I am not afraid. Last night it took me two and a half hours to fall asleep instead of the now usual 30 minutes or less.
After yesterday's article I got an email from one of the readers asking if solving jigsaw puzzles will develop their eye muscles to enable them to see the bigger picture and to see the deeper picture.
So I started to ponder and spent my day pondering about the topic: seeing, creativity, innovation, cone of vision, and what is the difference between extraordinary people and ordinary people. Continue reading "Get outside of the nine dots"
I find inspiration in his writing. I find that his vision of me and my life, and what can open up for me is a perfect match about 50 times out of 52 a year.
I am talking about Rob Brezsny.
Is this because he is so talented?
Without trying to make myself look better than Rob Brezsny, if it is true that it is not what happens to you but what you make it mean, what you say about it, then I will take full responsibility for the amazingly perfect match, the inspiration Rob Brezsny's horoscopes give me.
And if they do the same for you: you should take pride in it. And if they don't... consider that your creativity is at an all time low... that you can't see...
