Slow down!

Want to get more? Grab less… The counter intuitive way to “do” life that works.

I once had a very good friend. We met in Landmark, and all we talked about is Landmark stuff… Landmark Education works through distinctions… and it is hard to explain what a distinction is, but I will give you examples, hopefully you can get it. One distinction this friend of mine was in love with is “slow down.” And another one, an outgrowth from there: “chew on it” or “chew”. I knew this guy for about seven years, and these were the distinctions that he spent all his time practicing and deepening. Exactly the opposite of what most people do.

How to be successful without being evil

winningOne of the distinctions from Wallace D. Wattles: The Science of Getting Rich is called “The Creative Plane.”

Most of us, most of the time, live on the competitive plane.

The competitive plane has several aspects, and depending on your disposition, you’ll be able to counter some, while not be able or be willing to counter others.

  1. The first aspect of the competitive plane is comparison. On the competitive plane you are always going some place, you are never where you are, the only concept you have from the here and now is that it’s not enough, not yet, not there yet, not the right place, not good enough, or wrong. Not the right thing, not the right place. That is the foundation of the competitive plane, and the result is misery… felt or not, when you operate in the competitive plane, you are miserable, always hungering, always yearning, always out of sorts..

Phases Of Learning, Phases Of Self-Changing, Phases Of Transformation: How To Succeed In A World Dominated By Fixing

learning-to-walkIn my previous article I write about the creative plane vs. the competitive plane.

Today’s culture, the norm, the planetary hypnosis (Dark Side) generated attitude is hurry and forcing.

fire-walkAlthough I don’t like Dr. David Hawkins and his books, his phrase “power vs. force” is valid here: when you hurry you are trying to FORCE the Universe (and the people in it) to suddenly do what YOU WANT them to do, instead of falling in step with the Universe, and get what you want when it’s good an ready.

Just watch your reaction, if you are a man, when the woman of the house interrupts what you are doing and demands that you take out the garbage, organize the garage, make the repairs you promised, right now, not when you are good and ready…

Or if you are a woman and your man demands sex, when you are not feeling well, when you are tired, when you don’t feel like it, not in the mood… demands that you get ready at a moment’s notice.

Feel your muscles tense even reading the scenarios… this is how the Universe reacts when you are in a hurry.

To be in harmony with the Universe, you need to fall in step, you need to fall in rhythm, in harmony with the Universe.

Whenever I participate in a drum-circle, especially if it is a big one with people from all over the place, I experience this magic: falling in rhythm, falling in step with the Universe.

Dark Side Case Study: Google, or how fixing a problem creates and grows the Dark Side…

the problem solution cycle I’ve been a little off lately. In the middle of May the number of visitors to my site fell to almost none.

The cause: Google created a software that can tell if something is good or not. If something is worth reading or not. Google deemed my site crap. Obviously, because between May and the beginning of this week, they sent me a grand total of 30 visitors, whereas they used to send me 30-80 a day…

What happened? How did my site become crap from one day to the other?

If you are not in business, you probably haven’t heard.

But if you have a business that gets customers, buyers, through a website, you probably know, that Google, the online search monopoly that is so big that it can rig any system, much like Microsoft, is now completely on the Dark Side.

OK, for the above sentence to make sense, I need to explain what I mean. I need to clarify what doing business that is in harmony with the whole, harmony with creation is like, and then, of course, the opposite.

Let us look at a simple example, writing an informative article that serves people, that teaches them something, truthfully, and this way enriches people’s lives.

Stage 1: The writer of the article has one purpose in mind: to serve. And there is a secondary purpose: to have, some of those people, maybe want to do business with the website the article is on. These are the two purposes that are completely aligned with creation: you give something to get something, there is flow, grace and ease.

People go to a search engine and look for the information this article writes about and the search engine finds it for them among billions of webpages… really sweet.

Stage 2: Now, enter greed, enter the Darkness, enter trickiness, enter competitiveness: some website owners hire slave writers to write crappy articles, each article with a thousand version, same information, just different words.

turning points Part 3: Create a turning point by adhering to a quote that can alter your life… your attention

driving with your attention in the rear view mirrorTurning Points Part 3: Control your attention

You can adapt declarations that you find… and you see that living consistent with that declaration would be consistent with living according to the Original Design.

What aspect of the Original Design? The aspect that says: you are made of the same thinking substance as Source itself is made of. And you are endowed with the same kind of will Source has.

Does that make you equal to Source? No, not at all. Why? First off your cone of vision, the amount of everything that you can see and know about is limited to the dominion of the 1% world. Second: you have additional forces that operate in you and through you: the Ego and the Soul.
