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 monitor visitor behavior on my site... to see how they treat my articles... I spend a few minutes a week, in the morning. It often gives me an idea of what to write about, what to teach next.
This article is a result of that few minutes of looking today.
Oh, I mostly look at people who signed up to get an email notification each time I publish a new article... by the way. Those people have expressed interest, so I want to see what people who say "I am interested" are doing.
There are two kinds of "readers" that I have detected.
The first kind reads the whole article, reads the footnotes, and then returns later and reads the article again.
The second kind skims the articles. Skims 2-3 articles per minute, looking for something interesting to read.
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…"
If you've bought into the b.s. that thinking good thoughts, happy thoughts, being non-judgmental is good for you, then your vibration is low, but more importantly, your vibration cannot be raised, unless you let go of this b.s.
Let's turn this baby on its head: if you bought into the b.s. that your thoughts create your reality, and you need to avoid thinking bad thoughts regarding yourself, the world, the future, other people, because it makes you and your life bad... then there is nothing I can ever do for you, unless you change your mind.
Why? Because you refuse to interact with reality, you refuse to base your actions on reality.
Reality is neither good nor bad, it is what it is.
The last joke I heard before I left Hungary has stayed with me... and it's very apropos today
Here is the joke: What are the two paths for Hungarian intelligentsia?
Answer: alcoholism. The other path is impenetrable..., in practice there is no second path.
This article is about humans, about you. And it tries to establish that in fact it's possible to penetrate a second path... an evolutionary path, to become a human being, even if 99.5% of humanity isn't interested in that path.
So let's see how that applies to how it is today...
