How to Live More Abundantly… a Jewish Story

einstein quote: There are two ways to live your life, one is as though nothing is a miracle, the other is as though everything is a miracle.One night, the Shah dressed up as a peasant to enjoy the evening air undisturbed by his rank, and to wander through the streets of his empire unnoticed. He walked through town and reached the poor section of town. The street was quiet, but suddenly he heard singing from a little cottage. As he peaked through the window he saw a man sitting at a table.

He was amazed that such a poor man would be in such good spirits. He knocked on the door and asked if he would be welcome to join the man as a guest. They ate and drank together. After the meal the Shah asked the man how he earned his living.

"I am a poor Jew, I fix shoes in the street, and with what I earn I sustain myself for that day." answered the man. Continue reading "How to Live More Abundantly… a Jewish Story"

Your soul correction in your favorite movies, the ones that come up in your memory again and again

One of my favorite movies is a Coen brothers movie, True Grit

It comes up for me 4-5 times a year, to ponder who had the true grit... the little girl or the big drunkard marshal? 1

Which, as it turns out, isn't the right question.

Why and how I watch Netflix? How my Netflix diet is not binging?

Like with any diet, both the what and the how are crucially important.

I'll show you later in this article, that even if you eat the right things, if you eat wrongly, the how, you won't feel good... you won't get well. You won't be present to life.

And so it is with your Netflix diet as well.

Here is how I watch Netflix...

I watch only stuff that will teach me the skills by pointing me to the capacities I could distinguish and then practice. I even take notes!

Whenever I see something noteworthy, I stop and contemplate it for minutes... long minutes. I consider Netflix my mentor... Continue reading "Why and how I watch Netflix? How my Netflix diet is not binging?"

What is the technology of personal evolution…

I have said, in another article, that what is "normal" for a vehicle for the selfish gene (a human), is to move to and then stay in an ess.

Evolutionary stable strategy. Where life works relatively smoothly.

If you listen to the genes, you'll live that way, you live in an ess.

Your job, your family, your health, your thinking are all in an ess... You don't grow, you survive. You get up in the morning because you didn't die the night before. It is probably boring, and you are probably sick, dumb, and poor. Or maybe not. It pretty much depends on what you start with.

That is how most people live, and it has a pull that is very strong.

You don't rock the boat. You make do. You may do stupid things, and they likely take you downwards, towards gravity.

Now, it is obvious that this is not the path of creating epigenetic shifts toward living a life worth living. Not for me, not for the spirit, not for the soul. It is the ideal life for the selfish gene.

But Life wants more life, and the ess way of living results in less life. Continue reading "What is the technology of personal evolution…"

Change the context, get a surprising result: the increase of your TLB

I read articles. Mostly from Medium. And I found this one in my inbox today... I could have said: I already know this... and I would have missed a conclusion that is very important to YOU...

Don't know what TLB is?... It is your Twitchy Little Bastard score... when it is low, you are weak at doing the deed... you run for the hill, you quit, you have no patience, no vision... you are likely a disappointed little victim of life. You can read more here... but you don't need it. Just read this article. I'll summarize it at the end.

This Stanford Study Reveals Why Some People Are More Likely To Succeed Than Others.

In the 1960s, psychologist and professor at Stanford University, Walter Mischel, noticed something fascinating about the behaviour of his daughters.

Mischel observed that his three daughters — aged three, four and five years old — rapidly developed the ability to delay gratification.

They transformed from being unable to resist short-term pleasure to having more self-control over their desires.

What is the right attitude when being coached or being taught by a teacher?

... and by "right" attitude I mean the attitude that gets you what you wanted from life... 1

A assume that we are all afraid of being mislead, misguided, lied to. The fear is well-founded: most people don't know what they are talking about, most people are wrong, and some even lie so they can make money off you.

So what? I say... OK, don't run just yet. Continue reading "What is the right attitude when being coached or being taught by a teacher?"

Please help me in this test… Thank you

I trust you that you'll do what is in your best interest. That is what I want you to do... because then the information I'll glean from this test will be valid. thank you.

Who is my ideal client? It matters not what you say, it matters more if it is heard by the right people...

I have been asking this question for a few years now.

Marketing teachers tell me to find people who are kept awake at night by something that nag at them, that doesn't let them sleep... a problem, an itch that cannot be scratched. I am not attracted to the suffering.

I want to expand my business to start selling "stuff".

But what stuff shall I sell and to whom?

In search of the linchpin DNA capacity that is blocking your evolution

do-you-see-that-i-am-brokenIn this article I will talk about DNA capacities activation.

Let's talk about the failures, people where in spite of my effort, the capacities did not activate...

Let me start with the accusations a commenter threw at me/us: that the positive results may be due to time spent with me, instead of DNA capacities getting active in you.

I would ask the same question, and have.

Some results are definitely placebo.
