Hm, it seems that "Source" or my inner guidance, or soul, or whatever is doing this guidance thing... is intent for me to have integrity: speak from experiential truth.
So it seems from the few "trips" it's been sending me.
- In the area of health, it is telling me to make dietary mistakes... so I can be authentic in saying things to my clients and students that are doing things that hurt them.
As soon as I get what I was supposed to get... I am taken to the next "trip".

I have been muscle testing, diligently, if the stories that sell products, courses, software, are facts or made-up likely stories.
A likely story is a lie.
We, marketers, are taught: facts tell, but stories sell.
And so every sales letter is one story of another.
I used to be a liar, because I didn't think life was interesting enough, so I embellished it. I was caught, and it didn't matter. I just kept making up interesting stories, mostly sob stories about myself.
I was selling myself... and because I didn't think I had anything to offer, I lied.

Other stories, like this one, make me cry from two sides...
If you found that you stopped growing beyond a certain age... please cry with me... It may flush away the blockage, and allow you to catch up. Then, maybe, cry for Mrs. Thompson... I cried for me, and I cried for her. Because I had my "favorite and best teachers" of my own. And I have dropped the ball on some of my students...
As she stood in front of her 5th grade class on the very first day of school, she told the children an untruth. Like most teachers, she looked at her students and said that she loved them all the same. However, that was impossible, because there in the front row, slumped in his seat, was a little boy named Teddy Stoddard.

Between two chairs I find myself fallen and sitting on the floor
I don't know if you can recognize this situation, but my hunch is: you should.
Your attention is divided. Your intentions are divided. And NOTHING gets done.
It should be a daily concern... if it is not, you are probably in a rut.
What is a rut? A trench... you can either go forward or you can go backwards... Or stand still, hoping that it will give you a sense of being alive.
Whenever you add a new task, you have to go through this state: if you don't, then you didn't mean to add the task.

Some people won't adhere to a diet that would make them healthy.
Stupidity? Yes, stupidity on a very deep selfish gene level.
It's not that they don't understand the price they are paying.
It's that they make choices that the genes are making: not making waves, not bringing attention to themselves, not being different, fitting in is more important than being healthy, having energy, feeling good, calm, intelligent.
Almost everything "social" is gene directed. I say "almost" because I am humble. I don't know any social that is NOT gene directed, but there could be, maybe.
So what do the genes want?

When I watch or coach people: most people quit... first they pretend to be still in... but they stopped generating that goal or that dream.
Brendon Burchard, in this video and pdf give you a tool to evaluate where you are standing with regards to a certain goal or dream... and make the necessary changes so you can be closer to being a person who will accomplish what they dream about, what would really serve them and their lives.
here is the video, and below the video is the link to the pdf... the evaluating guide.
By the way, this is the perfect time for me, given that I just committed to spending two grands on a course... and I don't have two grands to waste... so I am going to do exactly what I am asking you to do.
Go do it.

Most of you live life as if you lived forever. You are patient when it comes to doing what you set out to do, have long term goals and aspirations for your life, that you do nothing about. You are patient.
But when you start doing something, you want instant result. You want it yesterday. Impatient.
This patient impatience renders you an unhappy loser, an underachiever, a never do well... Guaranteed.

If you live a fragmented life... your life is full of wanting to, having to, needing to and should.
The common thread that can unify your life, the different areas, is who you are.
But if you don't know who you are, then you consider yourself the different roles you play in different circumstances, with different people... and there is no YOU to unify your life.
Life is horrible for a person like that. Disease settles in the space between what is real and what is pretended. The inner tension uses up all the energy that could be used for life, for the immune system to kill the nasties, invaders, viruses, cancer cells, toxins.

As you may know, I am doing my second round of the 67 steps. In step 13 Tai says something like this: if you are not happy, don't throw everything away. It is possible that the unhappiness is due to a mismatch of your current lifestyle with your social needs...
So I went back in my memory to different stages of my business, or the different businesses I had. And lo and behold, I found something totally freaky: I was happiest when I had at least one person cooperating with me in my business. Even if the cooperation was minor, and we didn't interact much. Just knowing that I am not alone transformed my experience.
Now, this is a big surprise to me.
It is counter intuitive. I didn't know that I didn't know. I wasn't even looking in that direction
And it is something that I can easily apply, easily accommodate without changing anything else.

This article has three parts: truth in science, truth in growth, and truth in hindsight...
There are two ways to "do" science:
- you have a theory, and you set out to prove it. You ignore everything that doesn't prove it, and consider only what does.This is how current science works... especially when the livelihood of the "scientist" comes from a concerned party, like a drug company, or like the government.
The eye movement of this type of "scientist" is a narrow cone of vision, glued to what he wants to prove.
