Most winners in life master one thing in particular: they are astute. Astute: having or showing an ability to accurately assess situations or people.
Accurately assess... as opposed to have an opinion, have a good feel, or guess...
Is that a skill, a capacity, a virtue? What is it and how do you get it?
A have a new "most visited" post, the 31 quotes that give you chills... Why? Because it promises an experience... an experience you crave in the consistently dull and painful life you have.
Wanting to get chills without any other benefits says a lot about you and your life. What does it say? For one: you are a mystery to yourself...
I have said it before... humanity bars its way to evolution by throwing big words around. Continue reading "More on the 10 dark years theory… or why it takes so long to succeed"
When you reach a certain level of freedom inside your machine, you have the presence of mind to pay attention to a lot more than now.
And I am in a growth spurt... a lot more of MY machine, and THE machine got distinguished in the last few days, due to workshops and private conversations. I went from 50% free to 70% free in these few days.
So yesterday I saw something I have never been able to see... not that I wanted to... it was something I didn't know that I didn't know. Continue reading "How free are you?"
I have been toying, playing with the idea of teaching the Effortless Abundance Course...
What has been blocking me is the kinds of people who want it.
You see effortless is a lie... although efforting, per se, is unnecessary.
Efforting is a concept. But doing things, learning things, unlearning things, is sometimes hard work. And for most people, who are attracted to the Effortless Abundance idea, work is a dirty word. Continue reading "I have been toying with the idea of teaching the Effortless Abundance Course…"
This article is about the inner workings of a human... that if you get it wrong, the price you pay for the error is your life.
Is a human like a assembled faucet? When it drips you have to replace the whole thing?
I energize my water in a 5 gallon (20 liter) plastic containers with a spigot.
The spigot is replaceable, but I am not strong enough to unscrew it. I have the replacement spigot... I bought it a year ago, but is still sitting on my kitchen counter. I still need to be mindful that the old spigot, which is just another word for water tap... still drips. Continue reading "How true is your truth? Do your teachers have theory induced blindness… the world is still flat where human behavior is concerned?"

After I moved out of my parents' home, I met this guy who became my boy friend. My first boy friend.
He was a philosophy student, son of a well known philosopher.
I didn't understand a word they were talking. When I typed up his thesis I bastardized some of the words, because I had no idea they weren't typos. They didn't look like, they weren't regular words.
Here I am 46 years later, and if you asked me what profession I have, I would have to tell you that I am closest to being a philosopher. Boggles the mind. Continue reading "Epigenetics… the path of human evolution: from human to human being"
One of my students said to me: "you are like a scientist. And yet so much of your work lies in the realm of the not easily measured."
I have always had a difficulty answering the question: What do you do?
Defining what you do is important. To whom? To you: if you want support. Unless THEY know what you do, they don't know if they are aligned with what you do or not...
It is a need and a must to "meet the expectation of others". It is a survival need. You can't skip it.
Depending on what stage of personal evolution you are, it may be a lot more important to you than meeting your own expectation.

I am noticing marked difference in the way people of different religious, geographical, or ethnic background perform in my courses. Also I see marked difference between island people and continent people.
This is due to social evolution differences, they are not individual.
One area of difference is this: some are interested. Some are committed... or on the way to become committed. Some will never be committed.
What is the difference between being interested and being committed?
The story of the chicken and the pig comes to mind. They want to invite the other animals to a brunch, and want to serve ham and eggs. In that endeavor the chicken is interested, the pig is committed.
The pig has to give up something of himself. It needs to cut deep into his thigh... for the ham.
When you are committed, you are willing to pay the price.

We all want change. The circumstances to change, others to change... We want people to change to what we deem the correct or good way to be.
We want reality to be different.
We put our attention to what's wrong, in our view, what is missing, in our view.
In essence, we want the world to conform to our norms.
I am describing, to a more or less degree, humanity... though a segment of the population is very loud about it, very verbal about it: activists and campaigners.
The number one ingredient to become an activist, whether it is in your marriage, trying to change your husband and the kids, in school, in industry, in the world, is to have your fingers point, in blame, outward.

Vishen Lakhiani is the owner of MindValley... a huge company promoting gurus and their programs.
The original article was to promote his webinar workshop on becoming limitless, on October 13. The webinar's job is to promote their continuity, i.e. subscription to the $29 a month Mindvalley Academy.
Because so many people are interested in becoming limitless, or at least happier, I am going to review the article... I can't review the webinar, or something I haven't happened... but I can look at the person and his work any time, and make bold assertions to their results.
One thing that will clue me in is the truthfulness of this article... or the lack of truthfulness. I don't mean honesty, by the way. I mean: are the principles valid? Do the methods produce the results he claims they produce? Is the thinking correct?
This may take me days... I just hope I won't miss the deadline.
So, here is the article by Vishen Lakhiani:

The biggest flaw of Andy Shaw's work is it's starting point.
Andy Shaw considers the mind important: He holds, that if you can change your mind you can change everything.
Not so. The mind isn't the problem.
Even if you could change your mind, change the content in your mind, nothing would change.
The determinant of your actions, your attitude, your moods, your feelings is NOT the mind, but your being.
