Why you do what you do, why you don’t do what you don’t do?

epicurus god trilemmaThere are two types of students and there are two types of teachers.

Teacher One says: I’ll teach you!
Teacher Two says: I won’t quit until you learned it!

Student One says: I’ll come to your class, I’ll pay for your program and then I’ll try!
Student Two says: I’ll do whatever it takes to make sure I learn it and have it for myself. Continue reading “Why you do what you do, why you don’t do what you don’t do?”

We met the enemy and it’s us… we get in our own way

The biggest problem we have in life is ourselves. You’d think it’s others, but it is really you.

We’ve met your enemy and it’s us. Get out of your own way! You are your worst enemy!

The sayings abound, because ultimately until you change, nothing will change. But how to change? Continue reading “We met the enemy and it’s us… we get in our own way”

Turn around fast enough to catch your shadow

This article explains how come that you can only interact with Maya, which is ‘not that’ in Sanskrit, i.e. not reality, illusion, shadow play, the hologram, etc.

It is much less mystical than the Vedanta imagines it: it is quite simple and it’s explained in this article.

Without the capacity that I speak about here, you are going to continue living in Maya for all your life. Continue reading “Turn around fast enough to catch your shadow”

Enlightenment? Is there an outlined path towards it?

incremental-changes-trimtabbingGreat stuff I want you to read. I found this on Quora

When you read all the comments (there are tons of them) you can see how much tree of knowledge there is out there, wishful thinking, hoping that there is no work in becoming enlightened.

I think that if you are hoping to lighten your load, and start soaring, you have come to the right place.

What’s missing that in spite of all you do, you get nothing?

context is decisiveYou get nothing of what you really want…

Everyone tells you to be productive. Get up at the crack of dawn or before, and work work work.

And many do, getting a diabetes diagnosis, or dropping dead, or having to introduce themselves to their kids at their graduation or they would not recognize them.

But maybe that is not the purpose of life. Continue reading “What’s missing that in spite of all you do, you get nothing?”

Pain vs Suffering: Pain is necessary, suffering is optional

pain vs sufferingDistinctions are the currency of communication, growth, transformation, and evolution.

And when you look distinctions are missing for most humans… I can be almost certain that outside of the thousand special people who have their responsibility gene on… No one else really HAS distinctions, outside of their profession or hobby. Continue reading “Pain vs Suffering: Pain is necessary, suffering is optional”

Cheat sheet to conquer your wayward emotions. What?!

One of my students is working on creating a cheat sheet for people who have difficulties in life.

Why a cheat sheet?

Because when you have difficulties in life you find it hard to even think, let alone look at the issue with sober eyes. Without emotions. Look at it like a math problem, or if you are not good at math, a missing ingredient problem in the kitchen.

And if you are normal, if your DNA is what 99.99% of people’s DNA, then you have many difficulties in life, even if no one knows about them. Sometimes even you don’t know… oops. Continue reading “Cheat sheet to conquer your wayward emotions. What?!”

You can get unstuck only if you see what keeps you stuck

racket, the man eating machineMy teacher, Robert Hartman famously said: to know good you need to study evil. To turn your life around, you need to study what keeps you stuck.

As I am gearing up to teach the machine that we call the racket, I am getting emails from participants, people who registered in the workshop.

Those who are smart (not many :-\ ) come prepared. Armed in having witnessed enough of the distinction and the process to be able to recognize it on themselves by buying the Racket Course… have questions.

I am sure the rest of them want me to do all the work, and make them good, pretty, slim, smart, happy, rich… did I leave anything out?

The racket is a machine. It has a trigger that is an on-switch… and it even has an off-switch. Continue reading “You can get unstuck only if you see what keeps you stuck”

How the hamster method helps you win and makes you a winner

we'll use the who and the what to growDo you want to be a winner or you prefer winning every argument, every task, everything? Both? OK. Use winner and winning like two walls the hamster uses to climb to the top.

With it, in no time you’ll become someone who wins consistently, and a winner

When I was in my last two years in high school, I did all my school work between 11 pm and 4 am. I got up when my parents went to bed, and the house got quiet.

The King David method… by the way. The way King David lived and worked.

My brother had a hamster… Continue reading “How the hamster method helps you win and makes you a winner”

What nobody told you about changing what you get…

can you change your life with self-talk?Is it really true that no amount of talk therapy, self-talk, mindfulness, meditation, no amount of tapping, hypnosis, shock therapy can change what you get? That Landmark Education produces the same meager results as Tony Robbins, or any other known or unknown entity, claiming to transform your life?

Can you do what Gandhi taught? BE the change you want in the world? He couldn’t either! Continue reading “What nobody told you about changing what you get…”
