Every single human, whether they admit it or not, feel above average, and smarter than most everyone... and Forget Thyself is the worst.
It is a daily practice of mine to make myself a learning machine... learn from everyone, including my students.
Humility... it's actually very hard... you need to give credit where credit is due, and every time, it's human nature, you experience the marker feelings that come along with comparison: someone is better than me... therefore I must be no good.
There are two main issues (lack of courage and lack of humility) that if you have them, you probably won't be able to raise your vibration until you overcome these two issues.
To illustrate the first, I'll use Tai Lopez's email... Thank you Tai
I had someone ask me the other day "Hey Tai, if you could take one quote from throughout history and make it you life guide, what quote would it be?"
That's a pretty tough question, because you can use quotes and history as free mentor.
If I had to take one quote and make it my purpose in life, It would be something I read from Alexander the Great. He said "Through every generation of the human race there has been a constant war, a war with fear. Those who have the courage to conquer it are made free, and those who are conquered by it are made to suffer until they have the courage to defeat it or death takes them."

Did you get stuck, ontologically, at a 3-year old's level, and you are still behaving like a 3-year old child
Ontology is being science.
It looks at the grounds of your being. Here are a few examples: "I am an object in the world of objects." "I am not free to be myself!" "There is something wrong and it needs to be fixed!" "Don't tell me what to do!" "I already know!" "It's mine!" "I am a girl" "I am not loved" "Life is dangerous" "I can't count on anyone" "I am worthless"
Every generation is more entitled than the previous one. Why? Let me explain...
If appreciative is the opposite of entitled... does that mean that all those people who are not appreciative are entitled?
Entitled 1 is a worldview. It is a ground-of-being phenomenon, invisible, like the floor. An unexamined truth. To you. But for the other, it is quite obvious... 2
So how do you know that you are not appreciative? that you are entitled?
This is how:
Even when you thank someone, they frown...
You may even be diligent in thanking someone, you may even feel a stab of thankfulness, but those thanks are the waves on the waters, not the bottom of the sea... The bottom of your sea is entitlement.
In spite of The sight, and other capacities newly available to you, You don't seem to be able to change...
You have been unsuccessful getting their guidance, getting your information from outside of the mind.
This manifests, among others, in your inability to muscle test correctly.
The question is why?
The phenomenon, what actually seems to happen is this: you understand where to look, how to look, and you nod rapidly. You bring great examples to show how you just succeeded in using the new capacity... but I can smell the mischief... you are trying to throw me off my tracking.
Now, I say "you" but who is this "you"? What aspect of a person am I talking about?
Why all techniques of increasing Emotional Intelligence are b.s. and not effecting the level of happiness, the level of well-being of people who practice it.
Same is true about the Emotional Guidance System of Abraham/ Hicks... b.s. and ineffective. Why? Because they are trying to change the fruits instead of the roots... Putting makeup on syphilitic lesions. 1 Or pimples, if you are squeamish...
Feelings are clean. They do four simple things. Make you go for it, make you stop, direct you towards pleasure and away from pain... They are the seed level. The foundation. 2Feelings are what guides you as an organism to feed yourself, to procreate, to stay safe, or to fight. To have a community to belong to, and to have enough information so you know what to do[/note.]
Are you always going for the home run? The big win?
One of the most useful steps in the 67 steps is the step where Tai compares business/life to baseball.
The most important aspect of business is to not lose money. Money lost is the result of mistakes. Mistakes are the results of hasty actions, or actions that try to go from zero to sky high in one fell swoop.
Like a baseball player who tries to hit the ball so hard every time as to be able to have a home run...
Most people I talk to have no skills, no plans, no idea... but when I ask them what they are up to, they talk about the sky-high.
It's my birthday today, and I guess, I should be doing something other than work... but I love working, so I am going to do as much of it today as i can.
What is great about having all this Social Media is that people are reminded that I have a birthday, so people come out of the woodwork.
But people do it in their inimitable way.
Self-expression... or maybe self-expression?
Some act as if they were the one stirring the soup of the Universe, and therefore had the right to tell me how to be, who to be... I have removed them from my mailing list. Unless I hired you to be my coach, your coaching is not welcome.
Yet others, who are stingy... your stinginess is expressed in everything you do and say. Especially in the "you are welcome" part... That "you are welcome" shows that they think more than 90% of the time about themselves... and nothing else. Continue reading "Birthday musings"
