I left Hungary 37 years ago. And yet, when I hum, half of the songs are Hungarian, from before I left there.
I trust that when a song pops into my head, it is some kind of guidance. So when the song that was somehow related to the Counter-revolution in 1956, Que sera sera sung in Hungarian, when that song popped into my mind, I said to myself: pay attention. What is it saying?
I was nine years old at the time, and I was puzzled why the song would be put on the black list... I still can't see why.
Some days I get a ton of offers for new marketing tools, and I get desirous... I want to buy, but then I ask Source: I muscle test if I should buy, and the answer is always "NO".
So I have been pondering what guides Source...
What investment is useful and for what? Is getting more visitors to my site useful? Not really, the return on investment is fragile... Having more visitors to my site won't forward my work, more visitors may put some pocket change in my pocket, but are they really interested in what I teach? Not that I can see...
Every minute of every day, every choice, ask the same question: is this for a temporary gain, or is this for a permanent gain. Is it for me, or is it for some circumstance I'd like?
Yesterday I spent about four hours listening to Jordan Peterson. The material I listened to was a truth value of 30%... not bad.
In some ways Jordan Peterson, the teacher, and I, the teacher, deal with the same things: people don't see why they should learn.
Many reasons, I see, but one of them is fundamental, and also invisible, meaning it is an invisible part of reality, the part that is below the sea level of the iceberg. It's not hidden, as one of my students says... although Werner calls the process that makes it visible "unconcealing" suggesting that it is concealed, which is another word for hidden.
Let's start with debunking the current world view, that intelligence is inborn. We are all born tabula raza... a blank slate.
Your intelligence depends on the number of large chunks, neural connections permanently formed in your brain firing together automatically. Those chunks are created in learning.
Reality has two parts: the visible reality, the part that can be perceived by anyone, and the invisible reality that is governed by the invisible dynamics... that you actually need to learn to see.
The invisible reality is an iceberg: the visible part provides clues for the invisible part: that there is something invisible yet real. Depending on how you look at the visible part, through what vantage point, you are going to see different aspects of the invisible. One of the ways, one of the vantage points to look through is the learning to learn course.
The principle of intelligence is: the more problem solving chunks your brain has, i.e. the more neural connections you have, or speaking in transformational technology terms: the more distinctions you have, the more difficult problems you can solve.
Life is full of difficult problems that you can either solve or you suffer. The most pain comes from other people.
When I measure how many spiritual capacities you have active in your DNA, the correlation between the number of spiritual capacities, the number of distinctions, and success in life is obvious, although the why isn't quite obvious... yet.
What qualifies a "spiritual" teacher to teach, is that they are one step ahead of their students, one lesson...
At least that is what I thought until this morning.
It's taken millions, maybe even billions of years to evolve into a species that is 99% corrupted into believing that to get something it is enough to wish to.
For me this was invisible for a long time...
The first glimpse I got was when I first heard about satsang... a group of devotees sitting around a dude or dudette and attempt to absorb their whatever... vibration, peace, knowledge... all things that you cannot fully absorb, because they need to be worked for.
Emotions are like the hood ornament, the painted decorations, the wheel whatever shiny things on a car. They have nothing to do with where the car is going, how the car is driving, the only things that matter.
