A big winter storm is moving across America (I hear Europe isn't doing better) and people are holding their breaths... Waiting for Godot or waiting for death... hoping...
How you do anything is how you do everything. If a snow storm makes you hold your breath, how do you think you are when you are trying to face yourself? Hold your breath... of course. You cannot face the tiger... because you don't like to feel bad... anything bad.
The-powers-that-be teach you to keep your face to the light and avoid the darkness surrounding it. It eventually evolved to a slogan: Think Positive.
Result: a sissy humanity that is drowning in misery.
There are two kinds of lights: one light is like the Sun, life-giving and one light is like a fluorescent light or a candle... lets you see around you, but that's it. It won't give you satisfaction, it won't give you anything... it's small. Continue reading "Bloodless, tearless transformation"

It puzzles me to no end how difficult it is for humans to grok principles.
Principles are timeless, culture-free truths... the kind that is true everywhere... and has been true forever.
Rules, hypotheses, theories are cultural, dated, and rarely even true in the environment where they are first invented.
Like democracy... or what is right and what is wrong... and 97% of what you read in "informative" articles, courses, books, on the internet.
They may even hint on the some principle, like Michael Gladwell's books, or the Grit book, or many others... hint... hinting is not saying! They don't quite know what the principle is, or it may not be politically correct in this day and age. Or not sexy. Or won't sell books.
Just observe your refusal to consider any true principle... and you'll get why those articles and those "authors" put their emphasis on sexy... because you won't read it unless it is innocuous (not considered harmful or offensive) and in some ways tells you that you are greater than you are...

I think that most, or at least, many children are born with a much higher potential than what they will actually live out.
It's been that way from the beginning of time. Some of these children, like myself, are allowed to grow like a weed. Attention, the attention of the lesser ability adults that try to pass on their world view destroys the potential of these children.
It is said that we live in special times.
That nowadays more children than ever before are born with some additional strands of DNA...
That children retain their ability to see the invisible, hear the invisible, feel the invisible.
I don't think this is the case. I think that in every age people were born closer to what could be considered "the next evolution" but got reduced back to "normal" by their loving parents, by their caring teachers, or by a hostile society that doesn't tolerate being different.
Of all the things I have ever said to myself, this is the most potent saying.
It has saved me from suffering, it has saved me from all the nasty feelings that plague humans nowadays: belligerence, entitledness, feeling slighted, frustration, anger, laziness, yearning, wanting, and more.
What is the fastest way to devolve... the greased chute to lose your vibration? To move yourself to the horizontal plane...
Sometimes I write articles to solve an issue for myself... Tai calls this chess-like assiduity... lol.
Sometimes I write articles to address and issue one or more clients are dealing with... and help them solve it for themselves. Because, remember, when things don't go well... there is something that you don't know/don't see
And sometimes I write articles to prevent an issue for a client, and issue that is predictably coming.
This article fits category two and three... Some clients are struggling with an issue the other clients are about to encounter...
The issue is devolving. Greased chute to hell... Not a happy issue, is it?
How do you know that you are slipping onto the horizontal plane... the plane of the valley of the shadow of death? hell...
It is on the vertical plane where you can say: A is A. Fully accepting reality, resisting none of it. Having no need to hide from it, changing it, wishing it away.
Reality is the way it is. You are a guest to it... and like a guest, you'll find that it is not the way YOU would run the show... and that is OK. The show goes the way the show goes.
If you add anything, out loud or in your head or in your feelings... then A is not A, and you are not on the vertical. You are on the horizontal plane, where A is not A, where reality's rules are resisted, and where you can only be unhappy, forcing your will, or resign to never have what you want.
I have a couple of notebooks in my bed, and I caught a glimpse in one of them: love one day at a time.
It seems that society conspires against the peace that comes from the way of living: society wants you to chase something far away, and while you chase it, make vision boards, mind movies, bombastic declarations, and get caught up in the Desire Trap, which I'd like to rename Wanting Trap.
And although the best things come to you as side effect, not as results of goal setting, although what works in like is taking care of the process, keeping your eye on what you are doing, not concerned with big goals, or the future, most people today are caught up in the Wanting Trap, and live a life of unhappiness, and underachieving.
