Simple answer: You lack skills and capacities... You can boil water, make coffee in the coffee maker, drive a car, open your smartphone... You are not quite hopeless... or are you? Not quite hapless either... or are you?
If you remember, my passion, my purpose, my reason d'etre is to penetrate the invisible portion of all knowledge. It gives me joy, and it keeps me busy.
One of the tools I use to do my "work" is the ability to see what I feel. See its size, nature, movement, and its connections to other things. I am an empath and I am (I hate the word) a clairsensar, which means what I just said... I see what I feel... blah blah blah. Continue reading "How to get out of the rut you are in?"
This morning something pulled me back to bed after I got up.
I considered it guidance, and I got back to bed.
What came next was amazing: trips down memory lane, all centering around mental illness, mental stability, your TLB, and what was in common among the many people I remember so clearly, people I spent time with in mental institutions.
As an empath, other people's feelings, emotions tend to tug at me. today 99% of what I feel is not mine... But before I became conscious, before I started to climb the consciousness tree, 30% of the feelings I felt were mine. I also had a lot more noise in my head... all talking at the same time.
The only reason I know, with 20/20 hindsight, that I was hospitalized not for what I felt, is that none of the medication worked... I wasn't the person who was crazy, I just felt the craziness of others.
My theory of mental illness has always been that it is an escape... a hiding place.
A few years ago I made a lot of money selling my Sleep Rescue Remedy. It worked, and 80% of the buyers bought it again. All I needed to do is fill and ship bottles fast enough.
Sleep is a big problem, and unless it is solved, people are getting more and more incoherent and less and less brilliant, less and less able to contain their anger, frustration, fear, anxiety, or desires...
Sleep is a lot like eating: people are unwilling to be disciplined about it, and they pay the price. A big price.
But it is a potentially big money maker.
So why am I not pursuing it? After all making money is good, right?
My answer even surprised me: because it is boring.
If you have lived a lifestyle that left you with no foundation for self-growth is answering the question... what comes first: the chicken or the egg.
You, people in this predicament have one characteristic in common: you don't want to do anything that you cannot see the immediate usefulness of it.
Usefulness can also be enjoyment... enjoyment is useful.
This common characteristic has rendered you to either rely on your quick intelligence in school, and you had reasonable to good grades, or you had bad grades... the result in common: no knowledge of the world, no foundation for self-growth, because no real learning took place.
The percentage of humanity that would like to grow, but has nothing going for them, other than that vague desire, is a staggering 70%. 70%!
Human DNA has 160 spiritual capacities hard-coded. These are the capacities that can and hopefully will take humanity to the "human being" level, (and beyond,) where beingness causes action, not greed and other survival energies. At present there are eight individuals on the human being level on the planet. I don't know who they are... I know I am one of the eight. You need 60 active spiritual capacities to be on that level.
Explained: That is the name of one of my favorite shows on Netflix.
We all walk around with some approximate knowledge of things... we know absolutely nothing exactly, deeply. At best we remember what we read, heard, but that is second hand knowledge. In a world where PhD's have 7-10% truth value, second hand knowledge is virtually worthless. Even if you had the ability to repeat word for word what they said, your knowledge would be still just 7-10% truth value... sound dismal, doesn't it?
I have been "harping" on this with my students: hear the principle first, and then hear the rest...
If I asked you (Cinderella) to separate the wheat from the chaff... what would you do first? If you are like me, you first find out what is the difference... in looks, in weight, and then start separating them accordingly.
I even used to use this capacity (oh, forgot to say, it's a capacity!) to hire or not hire someone to work with me. I would ask someone to separate a pile of things by their category...
For you Everything is the same as everything else ... except not always
Unless it's accurate knowledge... i.e. true, tested, from an accurate source.
Unless you know what you learned... unless you know what you know... you didn't learn anything.
And unless what you leaned changes your behavior, inside or outside, nothing will change.
All learning is behavior modification, modifying behavior to become more fit to life, to play the game of life better, for yourself and for the human race.
So how do you modify behavior?
The process starts with an insight. The more energy is in the insight, the more energy you can or are willing to bring to the insight, the easier it will be to make the modification. Continue reading "Knowledge is not enough…"
