Why is rape so traumatic, while sex is so commonplace?

modern slavery numbers countries

  • Why is rape so traumatic, while sex is so commonplace?
  • Why is slave labor so traumatic, while working is so natural to us.

If you have ever been pinned down, not able to free yourself…
If you have ever been forced to do something you didn’t want to do… anything…

…your trust of life, your trust in people, your confidence has dealt a big blow.

Recovering is not guaranteed, and the wound can be torn open again quite easily.

What determines how you and your life turn out?

what you see and what you do are like the front and the back or the hand: inseparableWhat is the mechanism of the machine that you are, that is used to define your actions, your moods, your attitude?

As I said in a few previous articles, your actions, your thoughts, your moods, your attitudes will be correlated with what you see.

The two sides:

  1. what you see, or the way the world occurs to you
  2. your actions, your thoughts, your moods, your attitudes: your world

the two sides are like the front of the hand and the back of the hand, connected, inseparable, but yet distinct.

The poisonous tree that you are… and what you can do about it…

nothing-in-life-is-to-be-feared

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.” —Marie Curie, Our Precarious Habitat

The “What’s The Truth About You” workshop series is kicking off this afternoon.

As usual I haven’t done any preparation: I never do. I like my life, my teaching fluid. Freezing it would be to ignore guidance, stop growing, and start becoming a sculpture on a pedestal.

I slept well last night. I had a ton of guiding dreams. All about what I am trying to do in the workshop this afternoon: take you over the threshold between human and human being.

Being human means being a poisonous tree.

You weren’t born that, you became that. You are poisonous in predictable ways, along predictable lines, predicted by your soul correction.

The Pleasure Principle and winning in life

tumblr_ni0hxucPbU1u23a8fo1_1280Psychology, as a science and as a practice has some tools: Observation and brain scans.

But the problem with either is that the human element, the interpreter between what is being seen, their mindset, their attitude, their approach, is crucial.

But, of course, this is true everywhere, except with psychologists, we expect them to interpret what they observe accurately… except they don’t. As a rule.

And then there are some outliers… like Freud.

I am observing myself, and I am observing my students.

And I am getting clearer and clearer, that The Pleasure Principle is indeed one that has to be taken seriously.

The Chess Master’s brain… and how can a real smart person be so stupid?

chess-finch

…or what is the secret ingredient in The Machine that a chess master has or doesn’t…

I have been observing, for no reason, chess masters. Haven seen movies, read books, watched videos… for no reason… other than to allow consciousness to see.

WTF, right?

It is normal to do things for a reason. For fun. For research, For learning. But to take consciousness, like a baby, to the zoo? Who has ever heard anything like that before?

You are run by a machine. The machine is put together of genes, and each gene wants its own survival.

survival of the one that can changeThe title could be said differently as well: You are a survival machine. You are put together for the survival of your genes. (Richard Dawkins: the selfish gene theory). You have hundreds, maybe thousands of genes. Each gene is a code, and the genes are strung together on your DNA. Some genes are recessive, or dormant, but can be turned on by your behavior, by your thinking, or by an energy person, like me. 1

These genes put together, each concerned only about its own survival is your DNA, and we could say that the machine is what we call the ego. Of course it is not a good way to put it, but at least you are cursorily familiar with the phenomenon of ego.

Ego wants to survive the genes.
And it deals with what it needs to deal with to be successful at it.

The mind interferes with the machine, culture interferes with the machine, religion interferes with the machine. All your misery comes from this interference and how you choose to deal with it.

What is your machine that is using your life by driving to do the same things over and over again?

master your machineWhen I participated in Landmark Education (26 years) I was always in a seminar, for 26 years. A seminar is a 13-14 week long, 10 session program.

A good seminar leader would advise the participants to put all their lives inside the seminar.

What the heck does that mean?

It is simple, and if you can own your life, if you have enough capacities to do it, you can do it.

This is what it means: you consider everything that is happening in your life because of the seminar. Good, bad, indifferent… it is happening as a direct result of you being in the seminar.

For me this was piece of cake. Why? Because I had the distinctioncontext”, the backdrop, against it is all happening.

Normally, it was me and the seminar leader who did that mental switch… the rest tried to fit the seminar into their lives, unsuccessfully.

Result: not much. Flash in the pan… if any. Much like church for Christians.

Your machine: Cycles, patterns, spiritual path: Life is a circle of repeating changes, rising and falling like the seasons.

flowers for algernon... loss is more painful than never having itAll models are wrong, but some are useful. This model is useful.

Robert Fritz, author of the book, The Path of Least Resistance, can offer a lot of information on the topic.

Fritz’s oscillating structures is a model and it is useful.

What no one seems to write about is the big cycles that are hard to see, and even harder to see that you have anything to do with them.

I call this “the machine” and it is time to bring it up again, because so many people are unwittingly pulled into the downward phase of the machine cycle… have gone to hell… and I want to make sure they will come back.

I am going to talk about the machine that runs, under the cover, in the concealed, and runs your life, in every area of life.

Money, well-being, joy, relationships, and spirituality all have cycles, and what you don’t know can kill you there.

The machine that runs your life

crash and burn machine of your lifeMy stunning discovery that my conscious thoughts don’t direct my actions may spell out why you are where you are, and why you can’t move from where you are to where you’d like to be… without energetic support.

Now, truth be told, I should have discovered that fact earlier, after all I have read it, but there is a difference between reading something and nodding, and actually discovering it for yourself.

Here is a below the conscious element, you have if you are a Christian or if your religion is “manifesting” or the Law of Attraction: “If somebody else will do it, you’ll never do it.. why bother, why interfere in fate?”

Here is another one: “I can’t.” And unless you build a below the conscious reality in which you can, in which you are someone who can, it will run your life, no matter what affirmations, what mind-movies you expose your conscious mind to… because this is how it works.

The difference is the difference between Tree of Knowledge and Tree of Life… mind stuff, and personal truth.

You live in a machine and you feed the machine, unwittingly

are you fighting your machine?Every single human (and to a certain degree lots of animals) has automatic ways of being, that could be called a machine, because their behavior is predictable, it is machine-like. Push a button and outcomes the same result, every time.

Every person I know is, more or less, an emotional wreck… a thinly disguised heap of upsets, fears, anxieties, and other very unpleasant feelings. As an empath I see the disguise and feel the truth.

The gap between what you’d like to be, calm, collected, smart, graceful, close, intimate, effective, important, creative, productive, etc. and the reality, the truth: you are bogged down by bad feelings, bad thoughts, doubts, insecurities, fears… stuck, stuck, stuck. In survival mode alternating with sudden bursts of inspiration, hope, etc.

The people who visit this site can be divided to two distinct groups:
