I am a foreigner. I learned the English words, one by one. Since the age of 10… English was my third language.
I only started to learn the beingness associated with, the beingness indicated by some big words when I came to the United States at age 38 and started the work of transformation.
The first beingness word I looked into was generosity. I was still a beginner at distinguishing.
Distinguishing is the art of precision, astuteness, of what something is and what that something isn’t. What it isn’t will distinguish that thing a lot better, a lot clearer than trying to explain what it is. Interesting, isn’t it? Michelangelo and his David… Removing, in language, the parts of the stone that aren’t David.
I had to learn the hard way what generosity isn’t, how “generosity” can and does make enemies of friends, destroys you in the process, while it builds your ego sky high.
The second beingness word was authenticity.

Your attention span is a reliable indicator of how well you’ll do in life
If you are not where you want to be, one possible way you can improve your lot is by increasing your attention span.
Most people have a lot of aspects to their behavior and thinking that are at odds with being happy, successful, joyful people.
A whole lot. I measure most in my Starting Point Measurements.
So the natural inclination is to declare it hopeless. And the second natural inclination is to want to handle it all at once.
This is when people spend a lot of money in one sitting… and then don’t know what to do with them.
And some people, the rare specimen, who asks: how should I start? What shall I do first? Continue reading “Increase this number and all other numbers will rise with it”
One of the enemies you need to work against, and I mean WORK against, is the impression other people give you, that if you can see it, you can do it.
That if you see a result, you can have it.
It seems to be sold and bought wholesale by nearly everyone, and buying that, of course, reduces you to a thing that engages in wishful thinking, but does no productive work.
It is so seductive to think that forcing yourself to do work belongs to lesser people. That to actually learn how to climb the mountain, get the right gear, get the right guidance is something you’ll never have to do… because you are special, you are better.
And, obviously, we are not only talking about climbing a mountain, we are talking about things you want to, you could achieve, but you don’t, in any area of life. Continue reading “Are you the bowler or the bowling ball? A bowling ball in the hands of your pancreas and your thyroid…”
When I turned 10 I started to put on weight. With starving myself, I was slim for about 20 years of my life, pleasantly plump and occasionally fat the other 40. I am 72 now, and my weight is creeping up. Again. It’s at 135. It was 125 at the start of the lockdown. I am 5’4″, 163 cm.
I am sure I am not alone with weight issues. I move less, and I eat more. Douse nervous energy with eating. The caged animal syndrome.
I am looking what it is I can do to counter my sluggish thyroid and my misbehaving pancreas… I can’t see myself eating less right now.
Source tells me that I can heal them both with Light energy… the same I use for liver and brain cleanse… But will that be enough? Will I be better and fat? lol.
Source says: maybe. My pancreas and my thyroid gland will work well, but we’ll still have the loss of sensitivity of my cells to insulin. Continue reading “Let’s use this lockdown to repair your thyroid and your pancreas”
‘Even cowards can endure hardship; only the brave can endure suspense.’ (Mignon McLaughlin)
99% of what is (reality) is invisible for the uninitiated. Unrecognizable. Puzzling. Mystical, Miraculous. Unexplained.
My programs, in part, are initiating programs: initiating you into these invisible yet very real mysteries. For example the 53 invisibles
Enabling you to see and recognize the dynamics below the visible layer of people, behaviors, societies.
And on yourself.
People are really mysteries for themselves… and even after initiation, they want to keep those inner dynamics a mystery, because, between you and me, those invisibles are not pretty. And they run counter to people’s precious ‘I’, the way they fancy themselves to be. Continue reading “Even cowards can endure hardship; only the brave can endure suspense… yet another principle”
It’s been very difficult for me to bring examples to the phenomenon “or-ness”, in spite of the fact that it is all over. I was trying to define it, but it’s eluded me.
Here is an article I didn’t write. It is a beautiful illustration of the principle of how to replace “or” with “and” and give birth to a lot better, a lot more loving life than it was before. Really nicely done: Continue reading “One Word That Should Never Follow “I Love You””
Some days the DS energies are stronger than others. Today is one of those days.
The energies can effect the emotions (just like the ones in the Heaven on Earth! just the opposite way: make them stronger instead of weakening them), other days the energies are like physical pain… if you imagine someone using a voodoo doll to torture you, by proxy.
I have an appointment at 3 and I need to decide if I should cancel it.
I connect to Source, and I muscle test: “Am I going to be well at 3?” The answer is yes. I know that the question was “illegal”, I am not allowed to divinate, ask questions about the future. Hm… I ask another question: “Am I OK now?” and the answer is yes.
I laugh and laugh and laugh. It’s funny.

Why is your ITCH ultimately evil?
Evil, inside the reality based work we do here, is defined as ‘desire to receive for the self alone’.
Your ITCH is putting the onus, the responsibility, the demand, and the duty on another to make you whole and complete.
In that process everything they actually do is judged as ‘wrong’. You give them no equal rights to have their opinion, their style, their preference, their likes and dislikes, you want them to adopt your preferences, so you are dominating.
People can’t be free to be themselves around you, because you consider everything they do, say, express as wrong, because it is not what you wanted. Not what you demand, whether you say so or not.
In your ITCH the only person to win is you, and that is what’s evil about it. Continue reading “Demanding, extorting to be treated well? What would be your excuse if they did?”
Remorse is the ability to humble oneself and healthily repent for past mistakes ~ Ryan Fan
I remember being in a Landmark program, years ago, that railed against the 3 R’s… regret, resentment, and I don’t remember the third. But they were wrong.
I have more time nowadays, and I don’t hurry and run away from bad feelings.
Bad feelings are good. Really good. You should take time to hang out with them, and spend some time in their company.
They are cleansing. They are integrity restorer. They are good for you. They would be good for you to use them as a guidance system once you take the time to feel them.
One thing I notice in the partner calls in my Playground is that people cheerfully notice ‘desire to receive for the self alone’ in their stories, present or past, and they are OK with them. Continue reading “Remorse, regret, self-recrimination”
Actually, the original Ben Franklin quote is: Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing (about). Leave the world a better place than it was before you were born, because of your actions.
I didn’t think it was in me… so I settled for something small. I decided to plant a tree every year… there are too few trees in my humble but accurate opinion.
Then my landlord cut them, not all but most… and I got disheartened. Continue reading “Either write something worth reading, or be someone worth writing about”
