Explained… the only path to happiness is…

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?

So we are bumbling idiots in a world that is too big and too complicated, and unpredictable, and fuzzy for our taste... and we bang ourselves up, repeatedly, for no other reason than that we didn't know. Continue reading "Explained… the only path to happiness is…"

How high can you go from where you are?

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.

Knowledge is not enough…

  • 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…"

Why you go for more knowledge, more and more and more…

I just finished reading a book, a NY times bestseller.

In it a scientist discovers two life enhancing treatments: one makes you smarter, the other makes you live longer.

People go crazy to live longer, and don't care to get smarter. ((As I am looking to find some good pictures to illustrate this article, I am finding that people have NO IDEA what it is, or what it would look like to be smarter. So they don't even go there. Continue reading "Why you go for more knowledge, more and more and more…"

The Majority is always wrong and how to make decisions the majority doesn’t make

In the noise of the world, an orgy of misdirection, it is hard to feel, see, hear the guidance...

Awareness, especially Self-awareness is missing...

You have been methodically and systematically trained to be unsuccessful

Who trained you? Other unsuccessful people. Your parents, your teachers, your PhD's, your blog writers, your youtube Heroes.

And of course you buy their b.s., lock stock and barrel, as if it were the god honest truth.

I was somewhat lucky: my parents didn't talk to me... so they could not mislead me. My teachers didn't talk to me, there were no blogs...

But, unfortunately, as an empath, other people's feelings that felt like mine, did mislead me and I paid for it dearly. Continue reading "The Majority is always wrong and how to make decisions the majority doesn’t make"

How do you know what’s important to you?

How do you know what's important to you?

Just look at your actions. Words are cheap. Only what you do counts, only what you do testifies about what is important to you.

Do all actions count? Talking, thinking, watching videos?

Only to a certain degree.

One of the people who have inspired me for many years is Werner Erhard, despite his many shortcomings.

What did he do?

He had hundreds of projects at different stages of development. Some were just ideas, others were ready to run on their own without much input from him.

What he did is this: he "injected" some energy, with some action, into each of them, at least a few times a week.

Tiny actions. None taking longer than two minutes of his time. Continue reading "How do you know what’s important to you?"

A spiritual practice that can change all the numbers in your Starting Point Measurements

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.

Does life behave like a kayak or an automobile?

As I was answering a coaching student's post on my Reclaim your life program, I had an insight.

The model you use to change your life, to make decision, to live your life is the model of the automobile.

Narrow streets, you make right angle turns, the motive power in the engine obeys your steering.

Life doesn't work like an automobile. Life is a lot more like kayaking.

The way you adjust your direction is with tiny shifts of your paddle... no big moves are effective. Continue reading "Does life behave like a kayak or an automobile?"

Unless you know what you learned, you didn’t learn anything

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...

There are two schools of thought: the two paths... You really either choose the one or the other. There is no compromise... Continue reading "Unless you know what you learned, you didn’t learn anything"
