Google Podcasts | Email | You cannot change something if you don’t know what causes it… Thoreau thought misplaced value was the cause: We feel a void in our lives, and we attempt to fill it with things like money, possessions, and accolades.
I say that the truth is deeper than that.

So if we can change what you see, we can help you change your life.
I love the analogy of the winding mountain pass where an unsuspecting motorist happens onto a car wreck in the middle of the two-lane road.
His options are to
drive into the solid rock on the left, into the abyss on the right, into the wreck in the middle… or to slow down and drive around the wreck. Slowly.

Google Podcasts | Email | Do what is yours to do… and all will be well.
I have found that this above statement has only 30%
What is in the 70% that would make it really true?
If you look at the 100% true statement: ‘How you do anything is how you do everything’ it gives you a clue.

Google Podcasts | Email | Why do I fight positive thinking, why am I trashing it?
This morning I got to a realization: the students who are not making strides, not moving higher on the evolutionary scale are the students that are confusing ‘there is nothing wrong in reality’ with positive thinking.
Positive thinking says: avoid negativity. Turn your back to it. Make up something nice to say about things you don’t like, don’t want.

Google Podcasts | Email | It was 1979. I was 32 years old. The ambulance was using its blue lights and the siren to rush me to the hospital. Of course it was Sunday… no doctors…
X-ray… it wasn’t clear what was wrong. I was in and out of
consciousness. Internal bleeding. Continue reading “What can make you, force you to come out of the cave?”

Google Podcasts | Email | I had a conversation the other day with my core group. They felt to me rudderless, directionless, low on energy… like a floater.
What’s a floater, you ask? A floater is like stork sh!t… floats in the air and occasionally drops on the ground. Storks are known to poop while in the air… their poop dries out and starts its own rise and fall journey with the air stream… no innate motive power. A floater is like that.

Google Podcasts | Email | Every living thing must have fear or they would be dead already… meaning the species. Fear is a useful warning that life is dangerous, and every species is the food of another one.
So we have a reason to be afraid. In reality. Animals, cars, other people… all good reasons.
In reality fear is like a nudge.

Google Podcasts | Email | My new job is to take you, to lead you, to help you come out of the cave of the mind.
A prison break. Not unlike to the Exodus the Bible talks about: the Jews leaving the shadow world of Egypt for the Promised Land…
What is that cave? It is filled with words… filled with interpretation of facts, but it contains none of the facts.

Google Podcasts | Email | Reality is highly patterned… except that you don’t often SEE reality beyond getting an occasional glimpse.
Scientists know that reality is patterned… because they were looking for it.

Google Podcasts | Email | Patterns… or Why do billionaires read books on physics, the ice ages, the shorelines of our planet?
There are many ways to deal with the Universe, with reality, and most of them are ineffective.
The more effectively you ‘deal’ with reality, the more you get out of your life.
