Without a new context your life will remain the same

Okay. This audio is still going to be about context.

I am getting requests to help people change their context or create a new context, such that life starts turning with this new context, so what am I talking about?

Life is co-created and life happens inside the context that you live in. Continue reading "Without a new context your life will remain the same"

How free are you?

When you reach a certain level of freedom inside your machine, you have the presence of mind to pay attention to a lot more than now.

And I am in a growth spurt... a lot more of MY machine, and THE machine got distinguished in the last few days, due to workshops and private conversations. I went from 50% free to 70% free in these few days.

So yesterday I saw something I have never been able to see... not that I wanted to... it was something I didn't know that I didn't know. Continue reading "How free are you?"

Are The Voices subliminal? Talking to your other than conscious brain?

Remember that episode in the Columbo series where he is in the movie theater and suddenly everyone wants to get a coke... and that is what helps him catch the killer?

That was the time when scientists discovered that the brain can see stuff that you cannot consciously see and act on it. Subliminal, I think, they called it.

The Voices, The Dark Side mostly uses subliminal techniques on you. More of that a little later, but first let me share with you a principle of mine:

If there is a memorable idea, a memorable teaching in a book, a movie, a conversation, something that I'll use decades later, then it was worth reading, it was worth watching.

That is an attitude vastly different from the attitude in vogue: where you are digging, searching for the memorable.

Caterpillars don’t become butterflies

I clicked the publish button by mistake... Which means I'll add my notes to this article as soon as I can and republish it.

But my notes are going to be very disappointing for many... because this article and what is says is 60% truth value... and applies directly to humans, not only to butterflies and caterpillars.

It, in essence, says that in order to go on a higher plane of existence (butterfly) you need to die your current one first.

And this is what it's all about... How to die your current existence, and take NOTHING from it to the higher plane.

In my upcoming Money course... no name yet, but I am leaning towards "transform yourself so money can come to you"? too long? hell yeah...

Instead of teaching you tricks, I'll endeavor to transform you from a caterpillar to a butterfly. Continue reading "Caterpillars don’t become butterflies"

You live inside a machine… now… Respect the machine… Don’t fight it.

Many of you will get unstuck reading, understanding, and making what I teach in this post instinctual.

Many topics give themselves better and easier to make an advice, a guidance, a new method of doing things instinctual.

I envy the teachers of those "things"... My favorite teacher, ever, is Robert Plank because of his "how". I make a point of taking all the classes he teaches, because I can see the path: how what he teaches will be made instinctual.

And try I might, I haven't been able to duplicate it in my courses.

World view, attitudes, how to read, creating context, etc. seem to be not quite demonstrable, and not that easy to tell people what to do exactly to make them instinctual.

Instinctual means you can do it like you can breathe...

I have managed with a few things myself, but quite a few things: I still have to see, suffer, and do...

Everything in what I teach has to go past the hearing and the understanding level. Because the distance between those levels and actually applying them, instinctually, is like crossing the Grand Canyon... not very likely.

Even a little practice can go a long way... maybe half-way? Continue reading "You live inside a machine… now… Respect the machine… Don’t fight it."

People will always judge you and what you are doing. It’s part of the machine to judge.

People will always judge you and what you are doing. It's part of their machine.

There is nothing you can do about that. Judging is the only way humans have access to "what's happening". It is the right circle (the meaning and story circle)... and it is NEVER empty... You can call it meaning, you can call it story, you can call it judgment, you can call it commentary, you can call it whatever you want to: it never goes away.

Mother Teresa may be right... but doing it anyway, giving your best anyway, may be a really uphill struggle, unless... unless you set the context. She did... masterfully, and she made people "write big numbers" as a result. Continue reading "People will always judge you and what you are doing. It’s part of the machine to judge."

I didn’t know that I didn’t know! The the dangers of thinking you know something that actually isn’t true

What you don't know that you don't know

If you are like me at any point you think that what you know is how it is. And that makes you stuck.

Here is what happened that woke me up from this seductive illusion that what I know is so.

I have been fascinated with nut butters. OK... nothing fancy in that...

I bought a machine to make nut butters, and it was a tedious job: 90% of the time was scraping the wall of the bowl... or the machine would run as if it were empty. Continue reading "I didn’t know that I didn’t know! The the dangers of thinking you know something that actually isn’t true"

Why is meaning missing from your life? A meaningless life means you are unhappy

My methodology to lead you to become a human being is simple, and step by step.

First you become conscious of the machine and start taking control over your own life... by the Amish Horse Training Method, The memes finding, The A is A. And then fourth and final step is finding/creating the wind you walk into... The purpose. The meaning.

In the Nazi concentration camps, people who had a meaning to their lives, survived, people who didn't... died. The guy who I learned this from is Victor Frankl, an Austrian Jew, like Sigmund Freud, and not much less significant. In my experience his discovery is the golden key to a happy existence.

What is the number in your starting point measurements that most predicts how effective you are in life?

Theory induced blindness

I like to call the phenomenon of not being able to see what doesn't agree with your theory of life: theory induced blindness. A more popular and better known label for it is "confirmation bias".

You only hear what you agree with. Or more precisely, you only see what you recognize. And you only consider what you recognize as agreeing with your world view.

I see this every day with people who turn to me, who I coach, who I give a free strategy session to.

And I saw this in this video. 1 Continue reading "What is the number in your starting point measurements that most predicts how effective you are in life?"

You are a racketeer. Small time, bit player. Smoke and mirrors…

Why is drama a racket? Why is it never real...

Life is never dramatic. The drama is added by the onlookers or the participants.

Things happen. And you do what you do. You may get mauled, killed, or laughed at. But drama only happens in your head... it is never out there.

You look in the mirror and you see what you see.

I look in the mirror and I see loser. Why? I don't care. I know there is no loser there... in fact there is no loser anywhere. so I have a choice: make drama or not make drama.

Most of my life, like everyone, I was making drama.

I found clever or not so clever ways to make people say that I was a loser or something like it. Other ways to prove I was or I wasn't.

Life was a drama around being a loser. Continue reading "You are a racketeer. Small time, bit player. Smoke and mirrors…"
