Word of the Year 2016 is… Post-Truth

Word of the Year 2016 is…

Republished from https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/word-of-the-year/word-of-the-year-2016

After much discussion, debate, and research, the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year 2016 is post-truth – an adjective defined as ‘relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief’.

The script was provided by a guest writer, the cultural commentator Neil Midgley.

Why was this chosen?

The concept of post-truth has been in existence for the past decade, but Oxford Dictionaries has seen a spike in frequency this year in the context of the EU referendum in the United Kingdom and the presidential election in the United States. It has also become associated with a particular noun, in the phrase post-truth politics. Continue reading “Word of the Year 2016 is… Post-Truth”

Donald Trump: soul correction, vibration. overall intelligence… the other side of The Donald

the-other-side-of-donald-trumpSoul correction… if it is accurate and really something recognizable, then you should be able to tell someone’s soul correction without knowing their birth date.

Of course you need to know the person well.

This is exactly what happened this morning.

I found an email in my inbox recommending an article on what Tony Schwartz, Donald Trump’s “The Art of The Deal” book’s ghostwriter has to say now that the Republicans make Donald Trump their presidential candidate. Donald Trump: personal vibration: 70. Number of spiritual capacities: 4, overall intelligence, including emotional and spiritual intelligence: 30. For contrast: Adolph Hitler: personal vibration: 100. spiritual capacities: 4. overall intelligence: 50.

I am only halfway in the article, and it is already clear: Donald Trump is the archetype of a bombastic liar, a delusional self-aggrandizing sociopath… The soul correction of “Finish What You Start”.

Obviously each soul correction is a scale… where the correction is done to one degree or another.

That which does not kill us, makes us stronger

strongA few years ago I lost my sense of smell.

Then I changed my diet and the sense of smell came back.

Surprisingly I often smell things that didn’t seem to be there… Bringing up memories of the times I smelled the same… good smell, bad smell, neutral smell.

It’s hot here, unseasonably hot, and to accommodate it I am taking cold showers and I am eating differently.

Behavioral strategies vs. beingness strategies

dying to be lovedWe all want to be loved. It’s hardwired, because being loved is the surest way to be fed, as a child, get sex as an adult, be promoted or helped as an adult.

Its purpose is survival.

The organism wants to survive, desperately.

We don’t know what that love is, but we want it. And some of us want to earn it.

I just followed a link that introduced me to Chris Farley, a fat comedian, who died… because he could not live without that love. 1

So love is a tricky one, because millions loved and adored Chris Farley, but he didn’t feel it. He kept on trying and trying and trying… and he kept on putting more and more heroin into his veins, until it was too much.

Some of us know that it has nothing to do with us, whether we are loved or not. Some of us know that there is no chance for love between humans… not even between a mother and a child. Unfortunately or fortunately, you keep on deluding yourself, you keep on pretending.

The capacity to come to terms with the human condition would be useful, but scarcely if any humans have that capacity turned on in their DNA. Instead they keep on pretending, keep on trying to earn love, or pretend to give love… hoping it is reciprocated.

Waking Up From your Employee Hypnosis, waking up from your passenger hypnosis.

minimum wage work ethicThis article uses a great article as the base by the Note taking nerd… here is the original… site seems down temporarily.

This article is for people who own a business, want a business. The principles of owning a business also apply to owning your life… so you may want to read this article even if you don’t own a business….

I’d say at least 95% of business owners were employees before they started their own business.

If you want to guarantee you fail in business, approach it the same way you’ve approached all the jobs you’ve ever had.

The difference between running a business and being employed is as vast as the difference between being a child and being a parent.

It’s very easy to think you understand what running a business is like because you’ve been employed by one. But if you want a business that makes more money than it spends, you’ve gotta ditch the idea that this is gonna happen with the same paradigm you brought to your jobs.
