In case you're stuck - distinctions can come to rescue you, to liberate you, to save the day, save your sanity, save your money, save your life.
You can get stuck, seemingly, in many different ways. You get stuck and things remain the same, your past, your opinions, your truth, your reality... meaning: your occurrence.
Occurrence is a combination of what happens, what truly IS, observable by others, even a Martian, plus your commentary, your meaning, your interpretation.
My Playground program is about taking you from that stuck view of your life, your world, to being able to see what is actually real in your view, and what isn't. Continue reading "What tools can get you unstuck? Try distinctions"

If you find yourself on the wrong road... trace your way back to where you went astray... and choose a different road.
Why? Because trying to go across to where you really wanted to go, without going back, is fraught with death traps.
Humanity, some seven thousand years ago, took a wrong turn. In just a few words:
they started to replace reality with word pictures in the mind. Concepts.
This took us to where we are now: not a pretty place. Any and every human is afflicted: no one is exempt.
An "avatar's" job is to take you backwards so you can find your way from there... They have to have earned the right... by going back personally, backtracking themselves.
Most teachers try to cut across... oh the Buddhist, oh the Zen, oh the blah blah... they must know what they are talking about... b.s.
Maybe they know, maybe they don't. But you haven't done the journey back, so you are a second-hander at best, so shut the f... up!

One of the reasons you don't grow, is because the nature of time is that it goes one way. Forward. It doesn't stop, it doesn't go backwards, and mistakes are mistakes made.
But we, humans, are equipped with a brain that is able to model, replay, and practice, to turn mistakes into learning. Through repetition, or through thought experiments. But either way: being awake... And that is the first thing that's missing... being awake.
I bet you haven't taken advantage of that.
One huge insight I had when I realized that the version of
Freecell I have on my newer computers is the type where you can undo many steps... or even go back to the beginning and do it again. Continue reading "Updated… or what does Freecell and the Groundhog day have in common?"
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?
VIDEO Which, as it turns out, isn't the right question.

Some people die at 25 and aren’t buried until 75. ~ Benjamin Franklin
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions. Their lives a mimicry. Their passions a quotation. ~ Oscar Wilde
Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying. ~ Arthur C. Clark
Great spirits have often encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. ~ Albert Einstein
Of all sad words of mouth or pen, the saddest are these: it might have been. ~ John Greenleaf Whittier
I fear not the man who has practised 10,000 kicks, but I do fear the man who has practised one kick 10,000 times. ~ Bruce Lee

Frame: state change. Causing yourself or another to change their emotional state, aka attitude. The myth of "IS"
One of the invisible tools the memes use, the memes that keep us trapped and unable to take control of our lives is to spew "is" on us.
OK, that was a long sentence. let me see if I can reword it. The memes freeze us into a life where we have no power. It is in the wording. The freezing power comes from the wording.
We have spoken about the having to, needing to, wanting to, and should... these are a group of tools the memes use to rob us of our own power, and render us puppets.
The tool that renders us powerless to change is the improper use of "is".
Whenever you feel you need to change, this meme tool is at work.
Whenever you point a blaming finger at yourself, at the world, or at others, this meme tool is at work.
It is under learned helplessness. It is under resignation, cynicism, and unless you learn to recognize it, you'll fight it... like Don Quixote was fighting the windmills. No chance to win.

I did the first session of the Muscle testing course, version 2 yesterday.
There was a lot of things to unlearn and relearn for the students, things can and do prevent one from being effective in life.
Tons of the memes, everything and its opposite, no clarity.
What is Source. Where is the knowledge coming from when we muscle test for the truth? Is truth stagnant, the same today as it was yesterday? Does anything remain the same as it was yesterday?
The most successful people on earth know that only physical laws, the laws of physics apply here, and you can deal with the rest as appearances. A mirage. Maya. Not solid.
This article is about personal evolution... going from where, how, who you are today to a higher level, a higher organization where you can be, have, do more.
It's November 10, and the ground is covered with snow where I live. My hands are cold, I am contemplating putting on my typing gloves: gloves that the tip of the finger is cut off so I can type.
I started to keep my house cold in the winter a few years ago, but went all hogs with it last winter: my thermostat is set to 47 degrees (9 degrees Celsius) day and night, and I have a heating pad under my desk and a heating pad on the wall about two meters from my right shoulder on the wall in my office. I also have a heating pad in the bathroom that I turn on when I plan to take a shower.
I help people become the person who can have what they want to have. Will I be able to help you?
This is really the bottom line promise I have for you. But like every promise, it is conditional. Conditional on you... on you being teachable.

I field a lot of emails in a day. And some of those emails are goldmines, because they reveal the wrong ideas that people entertain, the wrong premises on which they build their actions.
In this article I will go deep, root level, and I will also go higher... because wrong premises can infect you on all levels.
Here is the latest:
Q: Can I listen to the Energizer Audio through headsets for 10 minutes a day to raise my cell hydration?
