As I have written before, the book I am reading now is the Metaskills.
The author is a designer, and looks at life through a designer’s glasses.
The article “You live in a world of your own design” is one of the favorite articles on my site. People want to design their lives.
The popularity of the program, Mind Movies builds on that desire to design… but the requirements for design are not there, not there for 99.99% of humanity… What is there is something else, something that doesn’t allow for design.
If we didn’t have words, we would have no emotions. All emotions come from words… some are yours, some are not…
The Amish Horse Training Method is to be able to hear all the words that create emotions… and hear them in a way, that gives you a choice to honor them or not, depending of the source of the words, the relevance of the words…
The Amish Horse Training Method returns you to the driving seat of your life…
Not surprisingly, for most students the first step towards mastery is mastering their attention. Unless you can control your attention, you are a putz… and are controlled by someone or something, but not you. And for you to be you, you need to call the shot.
The invisible undercurrent, undertow of self-made rules… Or if you prefer, the invisible strings that move the puppet…
What they talk about when they say “there are known knowns… etc.”
Donald Rumsfeld stated:
Reports that say that something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don’t know we don’t know. And if one looks throughout the history of our country and other free countries, it is the latter category that tend to be the difficult ones.
He definitely said that differently than how we mean it, and yet it is worded in a way that makes sense to most people, so I am quoting him.
First of all… don’t try to raise your vibration until you know what it is. I get 1-2 requests a day, just to measure someone’s vibration for $15, and when I send them the number, they demand that I explain to them.
If you don’t know how to interpret what you get, then you are wasting your money… A sign of LOW VIBRATION! Please spare me and yourself.
But if you want some semblance of interpretation, go to David Hawkins’ truth and falsehood chart, the “map of consciousness”. It is not accurate, it is b.s. but it will make you feel better about your number. Won’t make you feel better, because vibration is not about feeling, or feeling better. Even though people with higher vibration do feel better. But what was first, the chicken or the egg… And is there causality or correlation? Questions, if your vibration is too low, or even normal, you cannot even begin to tackle…
Oh, that is why you want to raise your vibration? So you can feel better? Not likely to happen.
Hurry is a reliable sign of the Fixed Mindset. Fixed mindset and growth mindset describe the underlying beliefs, the invisible part of the iceberg of your beliefs that crash the Titanic! you have about learning, effort, and intelligence. When you believe they can get smarter, you may understand that effort makes you stronger.
When you don’t hurry, time doesn’t hurry either. When you are prepared you can afford to not hurry
I shared this with the woman who drives me to do my errands on every Tuesday, and watched her emotions (remember, I am a True Empath!)… the emotions were “holding your breath, playing possum: I am not even here… Nobody home, I didn’t hear you…”
I pondered it until I saw it: we don’t like our bubble burst. We want our self-image to stay the way it is, so all of life can stay the same.
