In search of quick transformation...
This is a long article, first showing what doesn't work, why, and then it takes you to what does...
One of the things about humans is arrogance.
Arrogance is not what you think it is... arrogance is really an
attitude where you assume superiority where you have none...
Which is, in an ordered universe... EVERYWHERE.
But you, in your arrogance, ignore that you were born into some already existing order... and you behave like you can do whatever you goddamn want... and expect that it is going to work.

Part One: Knowing yourself is key to being able to change
We all think that we know ourselves... and then when it turns out to be wrong, we are surprised, but unphased in our certainty that we know ourselves.
Why is it nearly impossible to you to know yourself?
Because self-reflection is an intangible, spiritual capacity that can only open up if and when you look at your effect, your reflection, your feedback from the world around you.

One of my greatest revelations about transformational methods was in the Wisdom Course, a year long Landmark program.
It was a method of telling the story of your life.
You can tell the story of your life in a lot of ways.
from abuse to abuse
from success to success
from the point of view of what school you went to

More conspiracy theories that can open your eyes
Could you identify the many ways you don't like yourself an your life?
Most likely, these areas are areas where conspiracy distorted your behavior, distorted your thinking, distorted your expectations.
Consciously, willfully, with malicious intent.

I am in a state that can be compared to the cocoon state. I intend to emerge on the other side as a butterfly.
Wasn't I a butterfly before? Who knows. But humans don't live a day or two, like butterflies, and they have more stages than butterflies.
When you grow (if you grow) spiritually your growth pattern is much like...

As I have said before, your experience of life is limited, narrow, and quite defined by your culture, family, upbringing, education, and early experiences.
As long as your view of life stays the same, life will stay the same, or worse: it is a downward spiral.
So it makes sense to explore and employ methods that can expand your view of life and thus allow for a life that can go in a different direction, instead of the downward spiral.

You find yourself not sleeping well, eating the wrong thing, not taking care of yourself... Maybe you are getting signs of depression... Maybe you are procrastinating...
How can you restore yourself to wellness? You don't even know why you are not able to take care of yourself...
Your integrity is out... your sensitive conscience will not let you be well until you set things right.
We do things, little or big, that hurt others, hurt us. And then we expect to have a great life. Not possible.
But certain symptoms start happening. You can't concentrate, or you can't sleep well, peacefully. Or you don't do what you know you must, you procrastinate.
To get out of the deep hole you inequities put you, you need to start taking small steps to restore your integrity, to restore your wholeness.
You can't love yourself, when your integrity is out, and you can't love your life when you don't love yourself.
It is a downward spiral like the tread of the screw, every turn of the screw takes you deeper and deeper into the mire.

The Zohar teaches us desire is a vessel that holds the Light. The idea is attaining blessings and good fortune is not enough to keep them. We must also maintain our desire for what we already have.
Not always an easy thing to do seeing as how our habit is to focus on what we don't have.
Today, get in touch with the desire you first felt when you started studying Kabbalah, or dating your husband, or working at your dream job. Crave your life!
I had something happen today that was an interesting aspect of this same thing.
Diana and I are partners in our quest to create a business that would benefit both of us.
We have created seven projects, and all seven flopped.
