Your vocabulary number is a predictor of your abundance… or scarcity

This post, this audio is a little on the choppy side, because you are witnessing me entering the invisible and making new connections, connecting some dots. Brilliant if I may say so myself... 🙂

Okay. alright, it's Saturday. I just finished listening to today's installment of the 5-Minute Mentor Series. This is one of the things I signed up to carry my consciousness around 360 degrees, and alter, with the help of consciousness, what it is that I do about my finances.

Why do I trust it? Because it's done by the same person as the 67 Steps. The 67 Steps, whether it's good or bad, it has revolutionized my life. I did all 67 for eight times. I have been doing it since February, two and a half years ago. Because of some slight lifestyle changes, I now prefer to do the five minute a day version.

So in today's installment, Tai talks about how to pick, or unpick people we associate with. His filter is, are these people going to abuse us, use us, take advantage of us, cheat us, or not? It's a great way to look at people. Continue reading "Your vocabulary number is a predictor of your abundance… or scarcity"

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?"

The fourth quadrant: power… added to beauty, truth, and goodness. Is that yours?

Touched, moved, and inspired... Let's look at inspired...

What is inspired? I am sure that as many people I'd ask as many responses I would get, so let's get on the same page about it, OK? And here is another word: divine... we'll call divine anything that is from the invisible domain of reality... nothing to do with some god, or angels, or other 4th plan human mind products.

First the verb: inspire: 1 : to move or guide by divine influence. 2 : to move (someone) to act, create, or feel emotions : arouse.

Then the adverb: inspired: outstanding or brilliant in a way or to a degree suggestive of divine inspiration

And the noun: inspiration: a divine influence or action on a person believed to qualify him or her to receive and communicate sacred revelation

What is in common is the divine influence... being guided... being moved or animated by divine influence. Continue reading "The fourth quadrant: power… added to beauty, truth, and goodness. Is that yours?"

What are you? Beauty, truth or goodness?

I am having an interesting conversation with one of my students.

The philosophy student...

He wants to write his thesis on the Feelings book, but he needs his thesis counselor's support, maybe even his enthusiasm, or it is going to be a tough road to hoe.

It's a sales job, or if you are a Landmark Education graduate: and enrollment job.

Enrollment is simple speaking in a way that the other person gets "touched, moved, and inspired" and may even be ready to move in the direction you describe.

You cannot do it if your "about you" score is too high. Because you don't know what touches, moves, and inspires others. You may not even know what touches, moves and inspires you!

Unless you let yourself be inspired, touched, moved, you are dead my friend.

What touches, moves, inspires you is always from the beyond... beyond what you want. Beyond your self-interest. Beyond your me-myself-and-I. It is beyond what makes sense. It is beyond fear and concern for yourself. Continue reading "What are you? Beauty, truth or goodness?"

Are you planting enough seeds so that you can have a rich harvest come fall?

If we took an inventory of your life... If I followed you around for a day, a week, a month... How many of your actions are planting seeds for the future you desire, how many are planting seeds to no results, or undesired results?

Most people plant no seeds. Some plant seeds but then forget about watering them, and the weeds or the dryness kills the seeds before they can even sprout.

Most people think that the world rotates around them, should play according to their rules, and their rules are: give it to me now, because I want it.

Manifestation, the law of attraction, mind movies, instant healing, the "bars", incantation, shamanism, and thousands of fraudulent abusive modalities all capitalize on this warped world view to make it all right for you.

But they are lies, frauds, intentionally misleading you. And you are willing. It turns my stomach. Continue reading "Are you planting enough seeds so that you can have a rich harvest come fall?"

Are you a money magnet? If not, read this article

What would put you into the vibration of money? Or why are you repelling money?

Summary: 90% of what keeps you in money, or what repels money from you are you attitudes towards people, including yourself.

It is not vibration, per se... but people feel it. And they refuse to give you money.

The solution is to develop attitudes more conducive, more attractive, more inviting to money.

Most of my courses are about that... Changing your attitudes...

The article below may be too scholarly for most of you...

What is blocking your ability to abundance? To making money, to accepting money, to do things worth money?

I didn’t know that I didn’t know! The the dangers of thinking you know something that actually isn’t true

What you don't know that you don't know

If you are like me at any point you think that what you know is how it is. And that makes you stuck.

Here is what happened that woke me up from this seductive illusion that what I know is so.

I have been fascinated with nut butters. OK... nothing fancy in that...

I bought a machine to make nut butters, and it was a tedious job: 90% of the time was scraping the wall of the bowl... or the machine would run as if it were empty. Continue reading "I didn’t know that I didn’t know! The the dangers of thinking you know something that actually isn’t true"

You can’t JUMP to the truth… in fact, any jump is jump from the skillet to the fire

The reason I like to use the 67 steps in my own slow turning to the truth, and in teaching and coaching, is because even though it seems to JUMP to SOME TRUTH, it is wise enough to not declare that small and relative truth, THE Truth.

This is in contrast with everybody else.

I am talking about Tai Lopez and his 67 Steps Program, $67, worth all the money you can scratch together.

The overall truth value of the program is 10%. And yet, it can be the foundation of a life well lived, and a life lived powerfully.

Why? Because of its diversity, because of it looking at so many things, and so many layers.

It doesn't address world view, because that is a controversial topic, given that 100% of humanity "sport" an inaccurate world view... and they protect it like their lives depend on it.

And I bet it feels like that their lives depend on it. Being right is more important than being happy, being healthy, and even being wealthy.

We all have multiple personalities… How does your delusional self impact your life?

We all have at least two distinct and recognizable selves that we switch back and forth between.

In this article we'll look at intelligence, but we could also look at the character, the attitude, the moral fortitude of the selves... but because I look at the world through the frame of smart and stupid, and only secondarily through loyal/disloyal, I'll write this article on the intelligence level of your two selves.

Now, let me start with a statement: there is nothing wrong with being stupid. As long as you know and embrace that you are stupid. Continue reading "We all have multiple personalities… How does your delusional self impact your life?"

How not to have your spine shrivel up on you?

It's New Year's day. Billions of people give and get strokes... 1 happy new year! Thank you, happy new year to you!

You have to answer, reciprocate, or you create a negative balance with the people you didn't answer to... Weird but is so. Violate this at your own demise...

Humans need "strokes", an acknowledgment (validation?) of their existence, to stay alive. The expression Eric Berne uses is, that their spine doesn't shrivel up.

Any strokes will do... Continue reading "How not to have your spine shrivel up on you?"
