How does your Soul Correction prevent you from getting to a life worth living?

When you change the way you see things, the things you see change!

The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.
-Einstein

I have a disproportionately large number of people asking for their numbers, whose soul correction is "Sexual Energy"

I could ponder why the Kabbalist named the soul correction that... but instead of that I'll say: How you do anything is how you do everything... meaning whatever your attitude to one thing in life, will be visible in every area of life, including sex.

The main attitude of this soul correction, "Sexual Energy" is: It is my due. One may say "I deserve it". I heard the expression "Magiya li" in Israel a lot. 1

We all think about certain things, we all view certain privileges as a right, as a due, as an "of course", but the nature of reality dares to differ. Continue reading "How does your Soul Correction prevent you from getting to a life worth living?"

Do you feel responsible for what others say about you? The savior racket

Soul correction, responsibility, what is yours and what is not

First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt said it best: what others think about me is none of my business.

For most this is the hardest thing to learn. Continue reading "Do you feel responsible for what others say about you? The savior racket"

Starting Point Measurements profile analysis #2

Starting Point Measurements profile analysis #2

The subject of this starting point measurements is young, still in school. Yet I don't know her.

Because she is so young, I went into more details than I normally would, because it is going to be easier for her to change and get on the strait and narrow that leads to a good life, than for an adult. It is also a guidance more for the mother than for herself: I don't even know if she knows that I measured her starting point measurements.

So, here you go: Continue reading "Starting Point Measurements profile analysis #2"

Updated: Soul Correction: Finish What You Start

Soul Correction: Finish What You Start

New insight 10/7/2017

I break a lot of eggs every day. I like to eat the yolk separate from the white. So I separate them. The egg white is like snot... No definite shape, no commitment, sneaky.

This is how "Finish What You Start" behave, like the egg white... Avoid being called to account, avoid to be a person who can be counted on.

This seems to be the crux of this soul correction.

I see this soul correction on Scott toilet paper as well: it kinda sorta has a sheet size, it kinda sorta has perforation, but it won't tear at the perforation... It tears where it wants to tear...

A "Finish What You Start" product, avoiding any accountability, whatsoever. lol... frustrating to me, who likes to have things done.

Looking at the vise... try to control egg whites with a vise... ugh, ugly.

New insight 5/20/2017 courtesy of a student:

Ok.
Today some new things came to mind..
I realized that i live in a vise like pressure i put myself in.. i always do for some reason.. i'm looking at why. i feel its false adopted beliefs.

How i noticed is that thinking about all the reading and the diet the saying no to things and yes to others .. being disciplined and adding structure feels like work , like i have to make it happen.. then i remember my life before.. i was pulled in a thousand directions at once and completely running myself down on things i (wanted) to do..

So today i imagined what it would feel like if i didn't have anything i had to do or not do.. i ended up thinking id have a nap or just go for a slow walk.. then i realized that the reading and listening and structure and the diet.. all the things i (have ) to do, will make my life so much easier and meaningful than it has been , and i started to actually feel like it is my vacation , my relief.

Your life story is like a black hole. Your Bach Flower profile shows how…

resistance is futile against the black holeYour tendency is to remember the story. Not what happened but your story. And to tell the story in a predictable manner... always the same way, always showing you in the same role, the same exact way.

A story is a narrative of reality. It talks from one particular vantage point, and therefore it is distorted. Always. Inherently so.

Your tendency is to remember the story in a way that agrees with your soul correction.

Soul correction, it could be said, is this slant of reality that lets you get away with murder, lies, laziness, blaming, simply said: being less than giving your best.

My story can be summed up with three elements: a hero succeeding in the face of incredible odds, and also complaining: "no matter what I do... I can't this or that". And the third: I don't know if I can trust myself.

Almost succeeding, but never doing things long enough, hard enough, to actually succeed. Why? Because it would kill the story.

Also, I need enemies. I need disease. I need bugs... to fight heroically and almost succeed.

Learn Kaizen – Tread lightly

In matters of the spirit a little goes a long way.

One of the most puzzling things about Kabbalah has to do with the proportions of worldly to spiritual. It says it is 1%, as opposed to the 99% spiritual. Therefore if you do your job in the 1% reality, then the 99% reality will to its job. It is like putting in $1 to a self improvement fund, and your company would match it with $99. Good deal, isn't it.

It may be a good deal, but very few do it.

Why? Because your mindset has to be certainty, instead of waiting for it to come, or hoping, or wishing, or at the other extreme, thinking that you can only count on yourself. Or strong desire... or hoping... or "faith"... or praying... or all the happy horseshit gurus teach.

None of those mindsets activate the 99%. Bummer. Continue reading "Learn Kaizen – Tread lightly"

An easy way to get to the big picture that can make your life worth living, regardless of the circumstances

the-meaning-of-your-lifeI am republishing this article... Because I am writing another article with a different approach about the same result... Being able to live a principle driven life... Principle can also be called "the big picture" of your life.

Gurus teach to look at life this way... but obviously even they don't quite get it... The order of things is this: Being creates the kind and type of doing and the doing creates the having... If this didn't make any sense, you are not alone... billions are in the same place of WTF does that mean?!

be - do - have

But getting it would make all the difference for you: suddenly finding constructive actions, actions that actually lead to what you want... And between you and me, that is not a small thing. I get lots of requests to muscle test for people if the actions they decided lead to self-growth, a better future, or not.

So, it is obviously not easy to see.

As any living thing, your first and main concern is you. What you have, how you feel, how safe you are, how happy you are.

Most people get stuck there: it is a "level of consciousness" thing... that is the level of consciousness where most people live. Really, 99.99% of humanity.

But what about fear? What shall I do if I am afraid?

Alexander the Great supposedly said:

Through every generation of the human race there has been a constant war, a war with fear. Those who have the courage to conquer it are made free and those who are conquered by it are made to suffer until they have the courage to defeat it, or death takes them.

Now, looking at it from the viewpoint of the fixed mindset versus the growth mindset you can see that the fixed mindset provides a barrier that promises you to keep you safe.

In the fixed mindset nothing is supposed to change: if you are great you'll be celebrated, if you are stupid... well, the stupid should die... this was MY life principle for many decades... even if the stupid was me. Continue reading "But what about fear? What shall I do if I am afraid?"

How hard can it be? said Father Brown as he was grinding the car’s transmission…

Countries, people, soul corrections, have different attitudes to doing things. 2

Hungary (country), Finish What you Start (soul correction), England (country, ethnicity), especially, have an attitude of "How hard can it be?"

And they fancy themselves all-knowing, all-expert at everything.

My brother calls this the "do it yourself" culture.

And utter disrespect for people with experience, education, expertise. Or for skills, expertise, experience, and learning.

I worked as an architect in Hungary, for 11 years. Every client knew everything better. They considered me their guy who puts the stamp to their plan so they can get a building permit.

My brother was in a different profession, and his experience was the same: no humility, no sense of what it takes to actually be good at something, to see things fully. Continue reading "How hard can it be? said Father Brown as he was grinding the car’s transmission…"

I have decided to learn kindness.

kindnessThat is the hardest virtue for me to practice... let alone master.

So I have been watching kind people in movies, and I am reading Benjamin Franklin's autobiography.

I am noting the discrepancy between the behavior I observe and the behavior I would have in the same situation.

It is so far out of my realm of possibility to be calm, allowing, and kind, maybe to even shut up, that it looks hopeless.

But like with everything, there is a threshold... a moment when something now invisible will show up and suddenly the whole business of change will become easy.
