Buyers are liars

“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.”

– W.T. Purkiser

Most people claim that they want to change their lives… because truthfully, how it is now, is not much fun.

Only a tiny fragment of them will be willing.

What is the reason?

One reason is that they are lying. Habitually. And maybe, just maybe, they don’t even know it.

  • I remember the times when I had no idea what I liked and what I didn’t like.
  • I remember when the only way I knew I was hungry is because I found myself eating.
  • I remember when I didn’t know I had to go to the bathroom until I found myself there. 1

So ultimately you know what you like, what you want, who you are only from your actions. Not from what you say. Continue reading “Buyers are liars”

Why it is normal to be miserable: the itch you are trying to scratch

itch catch22The consolation prize you get, instead of a rich and fulfilling life

We all have it… unnoticed, unidentified, undistinguished, sneaking past your conscious awareness, the strings that make you a puppet on a string, robbing you of your life, using it for its own purposes… laughing at you. I can hear the laugh.

The racket. The insidious, ubiquitous racket.

It is a machine… and it is powered by an unfulfilled and unfillable desire, I call The Itch… the itch that cannot be scratched.

The desire for attention, for significance, for winning every transaction, for love, for filling your gaping hole inside. Continue reading “Why it is normal to be miserable: the itch you are trying to scratch”

How you do anything is how you do everything

Your how matters more than your what… the How you do anything is how you do everything’s how

Using the “See Reason” capacity is pointing out things to me that are not obvious. Not obvious when it comes to mistakes, not obvious when it comes to successes.

The areas I am looking at, because what there is to look at is what you are actually doing… so these are MY areas:

  • my back/leg pain
  • my digestive issues and clarity of mind and quality of sleep
  • Freecell
  • learning to respond instead of reacting (My Human Design strategy)

The allure of what vs. the how that is the difference between misery and abundance

Your vocabulary, the number and the kind of words you use, is a dead giveaway of the level of your spiritual evolution… simply put your vibrational frequency. If I could not measure your spiritual/consciousness level accurately other ways, I would use your vocabulary number to tell you what is your spiritual vibration, what is your level of consciousness.

How? What? Are you kidding Sophie?

No, I am not kidding.

You have a billion words for “what”… much like apes, by the way… and only a few, imprecise words for “how”. How words are adverbs…

Connecting the dots in the right order… seeing cause and effect accurately

connect the dotsConnecting the dots in the right order… seeing cause and effect accurately

Seeing what-causes-what is missing. Yesterday I said 99.99% of humanity lacks it… I wasn’t exaggerating. It’s really 99.999%… ten times more that lack it.

In essence one in 100,000 people, or ten in a million have it even partially, in one area of life.

It’s an intellectual capacity, fundamentally essential to success in the world

This is why Mathematics, Physics, and Geometry is so hard for people. Continue reading “Connecting the dots in the right order… seeing cause and effect accurately”

What happens when you cannot see causality? 99.99% of humanity can’t…

Yesterday I wrote about seeing reason, seeing the causal relationship between things.

I confess that it is a hard thing to see. Not just me, but everyone. Cause is in the invisible realm of reality… it is there, but it is rarely seen.

The Butterfly Effect comes to mind, that says through a string of invisible cause and effect happenings, a butterfly flapping its wings in Japan will cause a tornado in Arkansas. According to Wikipedia: Butterfly effect: In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state.

So it is not easy. But… and this is what this article is about, most people lack even the curiosity necessary to see causal relationships: they don’t care.

If you don’t have a capacity, you also lack the capacity to see what would it entail to exercise that capacity.

It’s difficult to argue that Life behaves as if it were sentient…

the vitruvian man…Especially when it comes to people.

Of course people are sentient, and one could argue that it is not Life but the “spark” in people that is doing the sentient-seeming actions. I don’t know enough, I don’t see enough, I am puzzled… I am looking.

What am I talking about?

People seem to be taught, repeatedly, what they need to learn and haven’t learned.

One of the most difficult thing for people to learn that there are consequences. Continue reading “It’s difficult to argue that Life behaves as if it were sentient…”

What does it exactly mean? What do THEY exactly mean? What am I supposed to do exactly?

butter on breadWhen I write an article, when I give instructions, when I teach, what people do is as diverse as if I told them all different things… even though I said exactly the same thing. It could be my intonation: they were on the call at the same time, or read the same article, and yet.

You listen approximately, hear more of your commentary and interpretation than what is actually said, and then you follow your commentary, not what was said. And, to boot, you never actually take the time to understand what the words really mean. Your vocabulary is approximate… and you may not even know it.

I have been telling my Playground student to retell their life incidents in movie mode, so they can see what actually happened, without their feelings, without their interpretation, without their meaning, without the drama, without they remember… just the facts… on a movie. Continue reading “What does it exactly mean? What do THEY exactly mean? What am I supposed to do exactly?”

How do you change the future? By changing the past…

opposable thumbsEver feel like you are just the thumb Source needs to get things done? Things that need a thumb… Physical things…

I used to have a cat. And cats teach you about yourself things you never wanted to know, like how insignificant and useless you are.

But one thing they also teach you that has served me well is teaching me that I have thumbs. Opposable thumbs. And in spite of their contempt for me otherwise, I can be useful because I can operate the can opener.

And god… whatever god is, is a lot like my cat. It needs a human with opposing thumbs to get things done in the physical universe. God doesn’t have a thumb. God is an energy, in all, through all, it is omnipotent… but lacking physical manifestation, it lacks a thumb… lol. So, us, humans, are here to make things happen.

For the most part, this has been my experience of that energy I call Source. Especially when I play Freecell.

Procrastination is only the tip of the iceberg of a life that is not going anywhere

fear or action, that is the questionOne of the behaviors that can be observed with people who procrastinate is that they are also reactive… not proactive.1

I will talk about that in another article… but for now I am more interested in another one of the “hidden in plain sight” hidden dynamics is: where, on what you are focusing.

Duality is firmly present, omnipresent, in reality where it concerns you. You either do one thing or another. Even when seemingly you are doing both… because you can only do one thing at a time. Because your attention is like a vector, it can be placed on one thing at a time.

You can either be defensive or offensive.

And you are, in your behavior either one or the other… And your mood, your life experience, your results follow as surely as night follows day.

It is also follows, that you either live out of fear or out of adventure.

And this is the point of this article.

What triggered is this sequence of sentence from How Rich People Think: Continue reading “Procrastination is only the tip of the iceberg of a life that is not going anywhere”
