Feedback is a 13th floor (Tree of Life) phenomenon…
If someone mocks you, laugh with them. It is obvious that humans, on the current level of evolution, live in comparison. I am better, smarter, richer, etc. than you/others.
So they mock you, judge you, try to change you. Normal.
You allow your ego to resist: you suffer. You allow your ego to fight back: you suffer.
The best way to deal with it is to laugh with them, agree with them. It takes the wind out of their sail.
All pain, all suffering comes from from your resistance, is the feeling of your own resistance. Continue reading “Resistance, ego, and meaning… the dynamics of your suffering, and misery explained”
I wasn’t going to write an article today.
I had four calls yesterday, and I expected myself to be tired, and running on empty.
But I am well. Not tired. The Days of Power must be really working… lol.
The fear, the uncertainty is never quite extinguished in a healthy brain: nothing is certain… even what you see or feel can be mirages.
Anyway, I am putzing around, and find an old Landmark notebook… and it triggers an issue I will need to deal with.

There are tons of coaches, coaching companies, transformational coaches, etc.
Bloggers teaching you tools of success, tools of happiness, etc.
Tons of books… courses… programs.
I have known for a long time that when people followed what was taught they would end up unhappier than they were before. I have tested it, observed it, and have pondered it.
There are two sides to teaching:
- 1. Where its ground of being is, i.e. where it’s coming from
- 2. Where it is received from… where the recipient is when listening… the recipient’s ground of being.
It’s tricky. Continue reading “There are tons of gurus, coaches, coaching companies, transformational coaches, etc. None of them has helped you to become happier”
When you live on the 14th-15th floors of your being, the ground of your being comes from there too.
Let’s first look what is the ground of your being, the floor on which everything is built that is compatible with that floor.
On the 13th floor the ruler is Life. Nature. The Universe. No interpretation. Life, nature, the universe gives you your actions, your attitudes, your interpretation of events.
Virtues live on the 13th floor, because virtues are a Yes to life. Anything gets evaluated by that question: is it a Yes to life or a no to life.
Is it part of the flow, or is it a blockage to the flow. Blockages need to go. Attitudes, needs, wants, habits, activities that are a no to life, that don’t fit the flow of life, Nature, the Universe, must go, because it is evil. Against life. Continue reading “The ground of your being”
I had a “Talk to Me webinar” yesterday. I have it every month, on the last Wednesday of the month.
This type of webinar is question and answer. I have no agenda. I learn more from unstructured conversations than from lecturing. Or running a workshop. I learn how to teach you, what to deal with, what are the real issues.
This is what I learned yesterday about growing up in the Tree of Knowledge culture, about you growing up:
Continue reading “Can your vibration be high if you live on the Tree of Knowledge, where every word has its emotional load? Can you be free? Can you be happy?”
There is a very interesting phenomenon and I just experienced it full blast.
This is how it goes: I write something. I think I know what i am saying. but hours later it hits me… wow.
So I wrote in my previous article, this morning, that all pain and suffering you experience is experiencing your own resistance… resistance coming from the 14th floor words: “This should not be…”
And most non-physical pain you experience comes from the devaluation of the “I”… or the perceived devaluation… and the feedback that is causing it is resisted.
So, consequently all non-physical pain comes from your resistance to feedback.
OK… I said more or less this… but how true and how general it is just hit me.
Here I am sitting by my computer, wondering when the mailman will arrive today. I have something outgoing…

This article will be deemed self-aggrandizing, or something of that sort… and I don’t care. Truth is truth…
I am 69 years old.
I have lived, this is a 20/20 hindsight, my entire life on the 13th floor. Two months ago I would not have said that: I didn’t know there is such a thing…
Having live there all my life: I am having a real tough time to say how I got there… because I never lived on the 14th or the 15th floor… the 13th floor is reality, based on your sensory organs, not on thought.
My brothers did live on the 14th floor. Both. My father also lived on the 13th floor. My mother didn’t. Continue reading “I never had to really learn it… so how will I teach you to live in reality? The 13th floor”
