I am listening to step 1 of the 67 steps again. The seventh time? Eighth time? I have lost track.
And as is usual for me, I am seeing something that Tai is not saying, and I kind of have been seeing, but not really. In the corner of my eyes.
Whoever thought that the well-meaning positive thinking will become a prison and a sentence to a ‘no joy life’ for most who become a “practitioner” of it, about 80% of humanity at this time.
Whether you know it or not, your powers of comprehension depend on your powers of distinguishing.
In the old est training, the trainers came to the room on the first day blasting: “for you Everything is the same as everything else … except not always” and they were as accurate as accurate they would be today: you can’t tell your ass from your elbow.
This is true for everybody, including yours truly… the difference is only in degrees. No one is exempt from it.
The capacity to see differences clearly is called astuteness. The capacity to tell apart similar things, to name them and claim them.

You live in a world of your own design… Time to reinvent yourself as someone you can love
Your own design is like a filter you look through. You can’t see the filter, just like you don’t see the window unless you touch it…
A filter is like a pair of glasses…
A filter is also like a pair of glasses… They can be dark tinted, they can be yellow, green… and the world occurs differently with each pair of glasses. You can’t see that it’s the glasses that make the world look the way the world looks to you… unless you can take it off…
You can see only the ripples. The indication that there is something there…
It’s the ripples that we don’t like… we don’t like the things we do, the things we think, the things we feel. We want to change the ripples. But the ripples are the surface of the iceberg… hidden, invisible…
But you can’t change something that you don’t know. You can’t change something that you don’t see.
We all want to reinvent ourselves, our world. Because what we have now is not working too well, not serving us too well. We can’t have what we want, and we suffer.

I realized today that I am still at the beginning phases of my “entrepreneurial” journey… meaning: I am not a seasoned entrepreneur.
Why that would be, you ask?
Today I had an insight. Everyone talks about knowing, maybe even knowing how to do something, but hardly anyone talks about building skills, the building blocks of a successful life.
There is a what to do… and then there is a how to do it… and they all look magical and at least foggy for most people…
There are so many how’s that I can promise you it takes years of diligent doing projects one after the other, with help, before you’ll get any good at it.
Here is an embarrassing example: I have been making my own capsules of supplements… I buy empty capsules and fill them with whatever I want to take. Continue reading “What does skill-building do to you, beyond building skills?”
Most authors, most gurus, most spiritual/money/prosperity/marketing teachers contributed one distinction to me… if any.
Actually, most didn’t… Famous ones, successful ones, amazing ones… nothing. I was left with nothing.
One of these distinctions, by Robert Scheinfeld, is considering that all you see when you look is through the limited perspective of the human mind. The 1%.
But seeing things the only way we can is not the problem. You see what you see. Continue reading “From the limited perspective of the human mind… why you make so many mistakes??”
And the picture of putting all those starting point measurements also tells me how humanity as a whole is doing.
Pitiful. But why?
Most people think that what they do when they are at their best, when they go to church in their best church-going outfit, is who they are.
Or the all smiles pictures they post on social media.
What you do, who you are, what you listen to 90% of the time gives you the Continue reading “Your life-success score is low… how do you raise it?”
The Logic System Of The Mind Is “Everything Is The Same As Everything Else … Except Not Always.”… and the mind, of course, is stupid
The test of a first-rate intelligence (astuteness) is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.
The comment that sent me to the article on the different cows that produce different milk woke me up.
Life is a lot more complex, has a lot more variety than our brain, hellbent on simplifying, is able to, or even willing to track.
I fell in hate with Bill Harris, when he said: water is water. That was in 2005. I knew better…
What I didn’t know, that everything that looks the same isn’t the same by necessity, only by accident. Continue reading “How lack of astuteness keeps us Sick”
Humanity can be divided to two groups. The dividing line is the vibration of 200… the level of responsibility and integrity.
Responsibility is a view of life where it is up to you. What? Everything. And when it is up to you, then you are never a victim, although things may happen to you, thing may be done to you, and yet you are not a victim. Because you have something to say in the matter… and you don’t say that you are a victim.
Responsibility is a dividing line, and I fully expect that 99 out of 100 of my readers, including my regular readers, my clients, my students, think responsibility is either a duty (you have to, need to, or should) or blame (you had to, you needed to, you should have… and you didn’t!) Continue reading “What is the difference between people who actually raise their vibration and people who don’t?”
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.

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”
