The same faulty thinking, the same thinking that makes you not do things that don't directly produce money, or the results you seek, the same thinking that makes you a chef with no food in the pantry, is what keeps your relationships empty, and causes your vibration to remain low.
My observation has been that the biggest obstacle to returning people to the pristine state we began is the business of the mind, the business of the body.
What I call business is not the activity of getting things done: on the contrary: the wasteful, self-serving misfiring of the nerve-endings, whether it expresses itself in activity or not. The restlessness, the ADHD-type of running around, aimlessly, but self-importantly.
Questions about dark side and dark energies are coming up a lot nowadays.
My approach to dark side
... is Kabbalistic because Kabbalah's approach to this issue is more useful for someone who wants to understand the issue or Dark Side.
You see, "where attention goes energy flows." And that attention actually creates or strengthens that which it energizes, even if it wasn't there before. Especially when you say you don't want it. Resistance to something is like pouring oil on the fire... makes it bigger. Like "I have no time", like : I am confused," like "nobody likes me." creates exactly what it complains about. Or "I am NOT stupid" or "I don't want to feel this" or telling fear to go away, and the thousand and one way you can resist something. Even ignoring something is resistance to it.
In a recent Landmark Education seminar I learned that the poison that human beings swallowed wholly and greedily is "there is something wrong here," the foundation of human misery, the dark side: Right and Wrong... behaving as if there were a right way and this isn't it.
It seems that you never stop for a second to ask the questions that could create choice:
Possible question to create choice #1: You ask: Hm, Something wrong here? Says who? Then answer: _I_ say so (the same person who asked the question). Next: ask: who assigned me to be the judge? Do I know how it is supposed to be? Do I see the whole picture? -- And if you are anyone other than God, the answer is that you can't see the whole picture, and therefore you don't know if it is really wrong what's happening... so you can see that you can't tell wrong from right... Not knowing is a much higher state than being sure.
What is the "thing" that other teachers, religions, gurus call Ego, in the Original Design system?
I just had a flash of insight: one of my students who has been suffering with digestive issues forever stopped coming to coaching calls. It began with me directing her to a different type of eating, the type of eating that has made the most difference for me: being a Separator or Alternating according to the Human Design Institute.
I felt hurt, I felt bruised, I felt betrayed. I looked and I felt that my pride was hurt. Or, using the terminology of "other" teachers, my "ego" was hurt.
Obviously Source doesn't speak in words, despite of what all the channellers, all the religions, all the systems intent on duping you. It is as if expecting your garbage to open its mouth and say: take me to the curb, tomorrow is garbage collection day: it is not going to happen.
Your cow doesn't say: milk me, I am ready... and yet, you know it's time to milk the cow.
Yet, just like the garbage talks to you, just like the cow talks to you, Source talks to you.
It is either that you listen or that you don't.
I pay more attention than most, so I hear a lot of what Source is saying.
The workshop is starting a week from today and it will take on new participants every month. I scheduled it for Easter Sunday... but to make up for it, I will give the first subscribers more attention... and it's worth a lot more than what they are losing.
As I am preparing, emotionally, for the course, and the challenge to crack some hard nuts, difficult issues on the call, I have amped up my awareness, and I am starting to see stuff that I could not see before.
Now, in every interaction, the background intention I have: would I be able to create a custom activator for the other person, based on what I see in that conversation?
What do a light bulb and transformation, raising your vibration, and gurudom have in common?
Disclaimer: I have done NO reading on the topic, so what I am saying is how I would have invented the light bulb... So don't start arguing with me for factuality: there is possibly none.
What was the genius of Edison? Ask 100 people and none will have the answer. they will simply say: he invented the light bulb. 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 our of 100 people asked, won't have the answer.
Why, because the genius of Edison is that he went waaaay off the common thinking. The solution wasn't even near to what everyone thought.
What was the solution?
Let's first start with the problem: the filament inside the vacuum chamber overheated and burned out, no matter how little oxygen was in the chamber. No matter what gas was in the chamber. In the experiments the filament always burned out.
999 experiments were about the material of the filament and the gas... none worked.
The solution that finally worked was alternating the direction of the current.
When you change the direction of the current, first it has to go to zero, and then back to the same voltage, amperage, but in the opposite direction. The filament, by the way, only cares about the numbers, and those (the numbers) went down to zero... yaaay, the filament had a chance to cool off.
So between two moments of high burning filaments there were a few moments of cooling off filaments. That is the secret of the light bulb.
Now, let's look at another challenge: the light needed to appear continuous, otherwise it would kill your eyes, right?
From movie making history we know that 24 frames per second gives the illusion of continuity. Alternating current is 60 cycles per second, your monitor does 60, 65, 70 refreshes per second, so it seems that you have a picture all the time, but in fact you have 60 or so pictures with no picture in between.
Now, let's look at factuality: does the direction need to be alternated, or is it enough to turn on and turn off the electricity, much like when you do Morse code? Of course, from the filament's point of view it won't matter.
Now, whether this is what Edison did or not, it won't matter to us, this is how incandescent light bulbs, monitors, movies work: based on an illusion. Based on our eye's capacity to hold onto the picture longer than it exists.
Why is this important and why am I bothering you with knowledge that you don't need?
Because this knowledge sheds light at a human phenomenon that you need to know, otherwise you are screwed.
There is no such thing as maintaining your level of vibration.
Whether you earned it or not, you need to earn it again and again and again. Same in business, same in relationships, same everywhere:
Life has only one constant, and that is change.
The moment something comes to be, it instantly starts to disintegrate. That is the law of entropy, or at least for our use, that is.
This past week I raised my vibration from 940 to 970.
Before that I had stagnated at 940 for quite a few months.
Guru learning from another guru: guru teaching another guru: is it possible?
One of my students is a relationship guru.
I am not an expert at relationship. I don't like them, I don't want them. I consider them an inconvenience, a prison. An imposition.
Regardless, my students have the most breakthroughs in their relationships: weird.
It doesn't make me proud. I actually feel ashamed. As if I wanted to create a good method to feed humanity and accidentally I created a method to create gold from sand... who cares. Humanity won't be fed by gold.
So what is it that I really want to teach my people? I want them to immerse themselves into the relationship they have with themselves and into the relationship they have with reality.
The relationship with other people is a societal construct: keeps you on the surface, engaged with what's not important, keeping you from your depths. Society loves puppets on a string: they are easy to manipulate.
Imagine teaching a relationship guru about relationships...
