I bought the 67 steps program at the beginning of February last year. I have averaged 5-6 steps a week.
This week I answered two questions that I have probably been asked nine times before… and a whole new reality opened up for me.
I’ll tell you specifically what the questions and my answers were in a little bit, but first I’d like to look at this whole phenomenon of not hearing what we don’t hear.
You may never have experienced this, because you either didn’t repeat something frequently enough, or you are sleepwalking.
There is such a thing as top of the mind awareness.
What you hear. What you notice. About 10% of what is there. What is said. What you read. What you see.
The rest… as if it didn’t exist.
Continue reading “Why is it a good idea to do the 67 steps over and over, instead of starting a new course” All mischief and all power comes from the invisible. Invisible to you, and maybe invisible to society.
It’s not hidden. It is just not obvious to the untrained eyes. What your eyes need is training and guidance.
My methodology, observing life through many distinctions, is a winning one.
It drives up, and makes visible what has thus far been invisible.
Racket, frame, memes, voices, states… the distinctions are all opportunities to see another aspect of the invisible, and gain control over yourself, so you can start moving in the direction of the good life, whatever good life is for you.
your soul correction. It is a distinction to look through and see some formerly invisible stuff. Continue reading “The methodology of making the invisible visible” This morning I received an email from a young man who paid me to measure his starting point measurements.
He could be speaking for you.
I need to take better care to my physical body. Like you said, drinking more water is the first step. I don’t take care of my body, and I can’t understand why. I feel like I’m missing gratitude. I hate to say it but I don’t feel grateful, and I don’t understand why.
Gratitude probably will come up to everyone, at least in the United States, where this week is Thanksgiving week… and you are supposed to be grateful. Or pretend that you are.
The more lavish your Thanksgiving, the more money you spend, the more food on the table, the more you do it to cover up that you are pretending. And pretense is the killer of the spirit.

I watched the 1995 movie Babe again this afternoon. I wept… again. I was deeply moved. By what, you ask?
Question: did you watch this movie? Did you stop to learn something?
Continue reading “Followup on the “how to model yourself after successful people” articles” How do you model after a successful person? Do you do what they say? Do you do what you see? It’s about modeling to grow, modeling to become all you can be.
I do both.
I am most interested in their habitual way of thinking, responding, decision making, and
Sometimes they know themselves, but more often than not they don’t know themselves that well… do not see much into the invisible…
If I see a habit that I want for myself, even if I see it clearly, I still have the difficulty of integrating it… it is not enough to see it.
Integration means it becomes part and parcel with me and my structure. But each habit forces me to find a crack, an opening in my structure, or I won’t be able to integrate it.

And the picture of putting all those starting point measurements also tells me how humanity as a whole is doing.
Pitiful. But why?
Most people think that what they do when they are at their best, when they go to church in their best church-going outfit, is who they are.
Or the all smiles pictures they post on social media.
What you do, who you are, what you listen to 90% of the time gives you the

I went grocery shopping today on my own. I was carrying some 20 lbs of groceries up the steps to get home.
I ran into Leo, my musician friend. I explained to him that carrying those 20 lbs of groceries illustrated to me what it was like to climb the steps a year ago, when I was about 20 lbs heavier. In 18 months I shed 40 lbs.
He said: Losing 40 pounds is hard work.
I said “no it isn’t…” He wanted to know how, and I told him that is what I get paid the big bucks for. He laughed, but it got me thinking.
