Life is a lot like plate spinning… Are you dropping your plates?

Today I learned a new word.

Injecting energy into something... as a way to delay or avoid entropy. Entropy is the universal tendency of everything to move towards dissolution...

This is the nth time I heard this step in the 67 steps, but this time I heard the expression "injecting energy" for the first time.

If I missed it even though I heard it many times, how many things do you miss?

Back to square one… How to grow from where you are begins with…

why-do-i-succeedI've been quiet.

I am working through some stuff... nothing personal, it's about you. It's about what to teach you. How to teach you. It's about seeing, in more detail, and more precisely what is the truth about you, so I can talk to you the way you can hear me.

The more precisely I can "diagnose" what is the situation with you, the more effective my message and my teaching can be.

But, it seems no matter how precise my teaching, it is not really up to me, or my teaching, what will happen to you or your life.

It is up to you. Your actions, your attitude, your "undeclared commitment" in life. 1 Undeclared commitment is an insidious energy that is like a stream... it is underwater, can't be seen, but takes every ship off path, until they are discovered, mapped, and compensated for.

Activism, reforms, revolution…

Did you know that every revolution has been, historically, just a re-shuffling of who is going to have power over who?

When I first read Osho's book, Rebellion, Revolution and Religiousness, I actively worked on understanding.

In Hungary we learned a lot more history than American students, and I personally have seen revolution, and reform and all that never changed anything on the long run.

A lot of people repeat Osho's words: he is very easy to repeat without understanding, without making the words yours. But I don't believe any of those people really get what he was saying.

I am not sure he understood himself, after all 90% of what he said came from the Tree of Knowledge. 1

But his statements that neither revolution nor reform make any difference, are as good as gold.

What will save you in this tanking economy: three moves anyone can learn

How to be the eye of the storm calm... Three moves you can learn and practice

Everything is moved by the invisible... where all the power is. Some are just one layer below the surface, some are deeper... but all the same, all changes, all movements, all phenomena comes from there, the invisible.

Do I see all the forces in the invisible that jerk on your chains? I don't.

But be sure that your efforts to manage the visible, in reaction to what you see, is misdirected.

Let's look at the economy in the wake of an election.

The in-order-to syndrome that wastes your life… Do you have it?

dessertWhy were you happy as a child and what you lost that you could regain?

Children live for the now moment, until they get corrupted by their parents.

They do what they do NOT in order to get something else, not in order to get it over with, to get to the promised land...

Christmas and vegetables are the first means to destroy joy in children.

How many days till Christmas makes the days till Christmas something to get through, so the real thing, Christmas can come along.

And eating your vegetables so you can get to the promised land of dessert... You are doing that to your children... you are doing that to yourself. Other examples: get good grades so you can get into a good school... Study to get good grades... Study so you can dazzle by having the right answers... Recognize yourself?

Why do you want what belongs to another? Why do you envy, why are you jealous? Do you know?

and a diet coke

Note: although I am talking about myself, you WANT TO recognize yourself. If you have a struggle with weight, or with anything, the answer, surprisingly lies here... and once you get this monkey off your back, you'll get the weight melt away, you will start getting what you want, by going for it.

A phenomenon is starting to emerge around me. Something I experienced some 40 years ago, but haven't again until just now.

A second look at the glass ceilings… or what I saw today at the skill finding workshop

burning-money

My takeaways from session One of my skill workshop

Some of my students are struggling to make real headway in the world, because they haven't been able to see where their abilities could make them a success.

Although I haven't lead the "What color is your parachute" skill finder workshop in years, I decided to gift them with a really low priced opportunity to do that workshop live with me.

I didn't know what to expect. What I got is so much different, and so much more than what I thought could come out of that workshop... at least from the first session.

Insight #1: I got a whole new insight about IQ.

The Follow-Your-Passion Myth and What’s the Truth

The following article is based on a quote from Roy Williams' Monday Morning Memo; always an inspiration. This week especially. This week even I need it... lol

Why am I not explaining it myself? Because he is a better writer. Because he says it better than I can ever say it: you need to bring your passion, your love, your happiness to everything, instead of waiting (hands out) for it to be provided.

And, of course, this includes raising your vibration, transformation, healing: pretty much all the things you expect someone or something to provide.

Human Being is powerful, is meant to be powerful. Waiting for something to be given to you is PRETENDING TO BE POWERLESS. Not a human being. Raising your vibration is a function of your starting to use your Human Being capacities, instead of settling for the status quo, resigning to living a hum drum life.

What is the Self? Part 5: Powerful/Powerless

from powerless of the personality to powerful of the SelfPowerful/powerless

The fake self lives for extremes. It lives for definition: in definition there is safety. Also there is the bait: fix it if you don't like it.

The Self is fluid. It knows that in the undefined lies the freedom, the ability to live fully, to put all power in all action, to live for no reason, to rejoice for no reason, to love for no reason.

As I have predicted, I am having a lot of stuff coming up. I live in a two-family house. I live upstairs, and I have pay extra for the right to park my car in the driveway.

I don't have a car, but I feel, that I am paying for the parking right, so I don't want the downstairs tenant to park his car there... He's started to park his car there a few days ago. It seems that the landlord is encouraging it. I am seething. I am furious. I am experiencing myself powerless: all known ways of revenge are illegal, outright criminal.

Why Should I Have To… They Should Just Give It To Me…

Do you have this attitude? It sounds something like this: why should I have to work so hard, pay attention, ask for it, earn it, dress up, look good, do well, get a degree, read that book, do my homework... they should just give it to me, because I am pretty, I was good last week, I am already tired...

I got lucky today. I have been playing the Self-discipline activator, and it must work wider than that, or maybe this is the point, but my awareness is over the top. I notice stuff about myself that never knew I had.

This is how I caught this attitude, the killer of all results, and the genesis of a lot of grumpy, disgruntled people's anger.

I knew about one aspect of it for a long time. As a business woman I have had this attitude that people should just buy from me because my product is good, without me having to tell them it's good, without me having to sell it.

It never worked, of course. But I thought that I was over it.

But core issues have a way of shape-shifting, and coming back dressed so different, you don't recognize it's the same issue. Or they go underground.
