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
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.
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.
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.
