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"

The truth about probiotics – Updated

OK, this is going to be mostly good news... Update is at the end...

They want you to take probiotics forever.

But in my experience, you will need probiotics to establish a perfect match flora for the food list you eat.

Or, when for whatever reason, you make quick and substantial changes in your eating habits. Continue reading "The truth about probiotics – Updated"

Clarity of speaking is a sign of clarity of thinking… What is your numbnut/moron score?

I am sure you think you are clear. But the number of words you use accurately in a language gives away your level of clarity... And it's low. I measure it as the 10th measurement in the Starting Point Measurements.

When I say clarity, I mean every area of life... including health as you'll see later in this article.

Now, why is this important? Because your clarity is what defines whether your actions, your reactions, your emotions are going to be in line with reality or not.
Whether you'll be astute, or a numbnut. 1

Misweighing Bias… are you penny wise and dollar foolish?

It's Tuesday and I just got back from my exercise class.

It was full today. Everyone was in post-holiday mode, except a few people.

I had a conversation with a woman, and had a chance to see how certain words, how certain way of saying what I have been saying lands.

I shared my story, how I escaped becoming mediocre like most people. I said no to coasting with people in my life.

How will you have the energy to grow? How I did it…

I saw something today I hadn't seen before. But before I say what I saw, let me dispel some myth: there is no such thing as bad energy. Energy is energy. It is good if you use it for good. And bad if you use it for bad. I'll write another article on this: but I have the urge to state it here and now: there is no such thing as bad energy.

All energy is good... and some meets you and triggers something bad... But it's you... sorry. Oops.

OK. let me start saying what I wanted to say: Continue reading "How will you have the energy to grow? How I did it…"

There are millions of ways to be stuck: people who move are all alike

all-happy-familiesThis is paraphrasing the famous Leo Tolstoy quote: “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” This is the Anna Karenina principle... As all principles do, it applies to many, maybe even all areas of life. A principle is the same as a distinction... I say.

But truth is, if you know distinctions, if you know patterns, there are only about 50 different ways to get stuck... and your way is just one or two of those.

Steal back your future

steal back your future from your personaWhat do you keep carrying that weighs you so down that you can never ascend? Or climb the Tree of Life, until you put it down?

Have you noticed that making changes, doing new things, going to places unfamiliar is difficult, near impossible?

Consider that you are dragging a persona with you, that is what makes the going so encumbered...

A coaching client of mine began to build her persona in an incident that happened when she was four years old. There was an escaped serial killer on the loose in her neck of the woods, and her mother left her in charge of her little sister who was in a cast. There was a knock on the front door, and she tried to drag the cast (heavy) down the steps into the basement, and also hold a kitchen knife to protect her...

Can you see the persona she built? "I am supposed to do the impossible."

Dr. Mercola and his site… a vibrational review

Dr._Mercola truth value, vibration, arroganceDr. Mercola:

  • his vibration 170
  • his overall IQ including his intelligence 70 (average)
  • the number of spiritual capacities he has 8. A practicing doctor needs 20 capacities... but he is a teacher instead.
  • his soul correction (his machine) DOB July 8, 1954. His soul correction is the same as mind: Forget Thyself.
  • does he have attachments? no
  • the level of his health 30%
  • the level of his cell hydration 7%

The most important thing you want to get from these numbers: he does not have the capacity and the humility to tell truth from falsehood. He is not connected to the Source of higher truth, because of his arrogance, so what you get is his personal opinion... or worse: his "considered" opinion...

Truth value of his judgments and interpretations: 7%

His website's truth value: 4%. Very very low... What does it mean? it means that 96% of what the site says is not true.

How do you decide if you have value or not?

Do-You-Have-Value-Question2How do you decide if you have value or not?

This article's purpose is to widen your understanding of value... so you can start valuing yourself, at last.

The current state of this area: deciding on your value is abysmal... and keeps you anxious, worried, and not happy.

You always think that your understanding is the correct understanding of reality.

Do-You-Have-Value-QuestionYou think you understand what people say, what people mean.

You never consider that your understanding is based on your small picture of reality... and you never think to grow your picture of reality, or to ask something new.

Do you have free will? Free choice? What is the ego’s role in that?


Genetic determinism 1 and the ego's role in it.

I could also have made the title: your horoscope and your ego's role in it, or your soul correction and your ego's role in it.

There is a lot of different ways people define ego, but what if the ego is none of those. Not what Freud called ego, not what gurus call ego.

What if the ego is simply the mechanism by which the Selfish Gene perpetuates itself... like an old dog that is unwilling to learn new tricks?

In animals, atypical behavior is rare. The "ego" calls the shot.

But humans have a choice...

So, what is choice?
