Make your plane go where you want it to go… or what one thing you want to learn from Babe Ruth

Make your plane go where you want it to go...

This is probably the most shocking sentence in the whole 67 step program.

I literally don't know anyone who lives that way.

People try to succeed, try a diet, try this and try that... while their plane crashes in every area.

So what is the difference between who are like that, who are on their way to become that kind of person, and others who never ever land their plane on the landing strip? Continue reading "Make your plane go where you want it to go… or what one thing you want to learn from Babe Ruth"

Are you teachable?

you must become teachableI help people become the person who can have what they want to have. Will I be able to help you?

This is really the bottom line promise I have for you. But like every promise, it is conditional. Conditional on you... on you being teachable. Continue reading "Are you teachable?"

Guidance, oracle… the final interpretation is up to you

It's Tuesday and Rob Brezsny's syndicated horoscopes landed in my inbox.

I read mine, and my blood turned cold.

Very scary... in spite of the fact that I experiment all the time. That I rarely make a binding commitment to any path until it is already bringing its results.

Their expensive, and almost brand new RV suddenly needed major repair, and the funds weren't there.

To add insult to injury, there started to be some legal issues, then health issues... so it looked bleak, and devastating.

In our conversation I went through a series of tools I have in my tool-box... and when I got to the question: do you know the 9-dot exercise, the light bulb went off for my teacher, and she came up with a solution that, if not solved it, made the situation bearable.

So what is this tool box, and what do the 9 dots mean? How can YOU use this to get out of a predicament, a situation that seems to have no solution:
