What was the genius of Edison? Ask 100 people and none will have the answer. They will simply say: he invented the light bulb. Or they will say: he tried unsuccessfully 1000 times, and never gave up. Then you ask: why did he have to do 1,000 unsuccessful experiments to get to the solution that worked? At best people say: because the filament always burned out… but how he solved it, 100 out of 100 people you asked, won’t have the answer.

The first fish that left the water realized that moving about with what it had. That first fish didn’t make itself wrong, didn’t make life wrong, wasn’t frustrated… instead it realized walking with fins was too slow… so it started to realize it needed something that was more suitable for land… legs. That is how it was in sync…
The fish used its fins until eventually they became legs… of course, over time… but you’ll get the lesson, how this applies to you, I hope.
This is how Life works, that is how evolution works. Until you introduce humans… that is. Continue reading “Frustrated? You are not in sync with Life”
This is paraphrasing the famous Leo Tolstoy quote: “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” This is the Anna Karenina principle… As all principles do, it applies to many, maybe even all areas of life. A principle is the same as a distinction… I say.
But truth is, if you know distinctions, if you know patterns, there are only about 50 different ways to get stuck… and your way is just one or two of those.

Engagement is making a commitment…
But commitment is tricky.
Real commitment comes from the Intrinsic Self, and you don’t need to make it. It is what the Intrinsic Self wants you to do…
Most things you call commitment, are impositions on the Intrinsic Self, impositions on you. Duty, obligation, drudgery.
They come from either an outside goal or an ego goal… and they don’t get the support of the Intrinsic Self.

Business, marketing, and other business things are not my favorite things to learn or do. Even though I come from a family where three out of five (I have two brothers) have MBAs, and my father was god of the topic in Hungary…
I gave up going for it one credit short: an enemy of my father would not let me pass an exam…
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
~Thomas A. Edison
I don’t like these topics because they need organization, creating systems, and I am not good at them. I tighten up when I have to do things I am not good at.
I could learn to be good at them, but everything comes at a cost, time and brain cells taken away from what I am best at.
Let’s see if it would be worth it…

How do these messages come?
For the past year all the messages come in dreams. Nightmares, to be exact. It takes me, for the most part, quite a few repetitions to get that there is a message.
