updated: Kabbalistic wisdom to create a turning point in your life

cause and effect... the boomerangIf you are reading my articles, you know that about a month ago I adjusted my predatory genes.

This happened after I read a thriller on human predatory genes... wrote about it, put it aside, let it simmer, and then returned to it a few months later when the idea came up again. Re-read the book, and decided to have a heart-to-heart with Source, and decide what to do about the issue.

Conversations with Source are like a 20 questions exercise: Source doesn't quite speak like a person... although it does speak. It has, so far, four distinct and recognizable "words": yes, no, somewhat, and maybe. Continue reading "updated: Kabbalistic wisdom to create a turning point in your life"

You are the dragon with the swishy tail… do you know it? Do you have control over it?

I have a new downstairs neighbor, after three whole years of no neighbor: that apartment sat empty.

I got used to no noise, no energies, silence... and now, suddenly I need to get used to a new configuration, energetically.

I don't want to... baaaaah! lol

The new tenant is the landlord's cousin, and though I have been tolerated thus far, so far for 16 years, I have only been a source of income for the landlord, not a person. Now I am someone who lives in THEIR house... at least that is how I translate her attitude towards me. A bother...

So I find myself, suddenly, needing my own course, the Playground. Now I am not just leading it, I am also a participant/client.

This situation is all about me... that is one of the wake-up questions you need to answer in the script: to what degree, what is happening, is about you. It is all about me.

I find myself feeling fear, really terror, I haven't felt in years... I wake up when there is noise downstairs, or I can't fall asleep: I am afraid. Very familiar from a long time ago... Continue reading "You are the dragon with the swishy tail… do you know it? Do you have control over it?"

Powerful Debriefing: How to be a winner regardless of your successes or failures

powerful debriefingOne of the major differences between winners and losers; winners have the ability to look at reality, and look long enough so all the filters get revealed and you actually see things for what they are.

Another difference between winners and losers is that winners love setbacks, love failures, maybe even more than success. Losers love success and hate failures, or setbacks.

Being a winner or a loser is a WHO issue: it is not a WHAT issue, not a circumstantial, horizontal plane phenomenon: it is who you are.

Why bother… it’ll never change. Hopeful or hopeless, both are the sign of not wanting to change

hopefulHopelessness is a wind... a real nasty wind to walk into. And "Why bother... it'll never change" is the real enemy to personal growth.

I have made a deal with Source about a decade ago, to do Source's work. Source doesn't have a thumb... I do..

I had been courting Source, for decades, but I was rejected.

I am a nudnik. Persistent, annoying, a gadfly... I rarely give up. The only thing I have EVER given up on was becoming a Landmark Forum Leader. It still hurts. I am the person who you kick out but he comes back through the window. You fire her and she says: you can't fire me from MY job.

You have to kill me to stop me...

For to the ones who use it, more will be given, and they will have an abundance, but from the ones who use it not, even what they have will be taken away

for those who use it well, much more will be givenBrain health, brain power, brain usage... how does it relate to your mood about your life? to the size of your life, to your happiness and fulfillment?

I am on the mend. It feels weird...

All my life I wanted to get sympathy for poor me... because I didn't think I deserved anything.

And I am noticing that I want to complain, that I am afraid that if I tell you I am getting well, you won't want to give me anything... not business, not love, not anything.

Remnants of a life lived unwanted, and expecting to be unappreciated...

If you have had your predatory genes adjusted, you really want to pay attention to the inclinations to do what you have always done but they are not as strong as they used to be. Like me fishing for pity... As if that were all I deserve, if that were all I can get. Pity.

Jacob’s Ladder: Learning is humbling. Why do you need humility to learn anything new?

learning and humilityLearning is humbling. Especially humbling is learning about yourself, and learning about your need to change

Your Precious "I", (whether you believe it or not, whether you know it or not, the precious "I" is in every single person,) and it wants to have and retain the self-image unchanged, the self-image that says you know everything. It wants to keep the self-image where it is superior. Where you are OK.

It is easier to see it on others than on yourself.

Every learning means that you, by necessity, that you didn't know something. Continue reading "Jacob’s Ladder: Learning is humbling. Why do you need humility to learn anything new?"

Continuous effort — not strength or intelligence — is the key to unlocking your potential. ~ Winston Churchill

Continuous effort — not strength or intelligence — is the key to unlocking YOUR potential.

How much potential you have? Except for one person, Elon Musk, the Tesla guy, everyone is only using less than 10% of their potential. He stands out with a whopping 11%.

How much potential remains dormant in you? If my example is any indication, about 93% of your potential is never breached...

Why? Because you feel, you act, you consider yourself fixed. Continue reading "Continuous effort — not strength or intelligence — is the key to unlocking your potential. ~ Winston Churchill"

You never stop needing to heal…

is healing for real? can you heal yourself?What does it mean "Healing"?

It is transcending suffering, physical, emotional, intellectual... any suffering.

Why do you need healing? you ask. If you don't... then you are lucky. Most people do. In fact I don't know a single person who doesn't... but, of course, you may be the exception.

No matter how you grew up, how good people your parents were, or other people, or your peers, you got banged up. Hurt.

Being hurt is an experience.

Did you get hurt in reality? Not necessarily. But as long as you live in an unreality where your emotions tell you what is happening, you will remain miserable... and hurt... and suffering. Continue reading "You never stop needing to heal…"

I am about to learn the next piece of the puzzle of how to get you unstuck

get unstuck so you can move againThis article may be short, maybe long... but I am intending it to be an ever growing piece.

I may be different from you, but I don't think so.

I think every person, you, behave like you know everything there is to know to do what you want to do. And what you don't know is ignored as if it didn't exist... until, of course, what you want to do isn't getting done with what you know.

Or if you do manage to do it, it doesn't produce the result you hoped it would, you were told it would... OR the result DOESN'T LAST... The flash in the pan phenomenon I have seen in Landmark Education, or with the stuck students of mine, maybe you.

Lots of examples can be listed from all areas of life, not just success. Continue reading "I am about to learn the next piece of the puzzle of how to get you unstuck"

What tools can get you unstuck? Try distinctions
