I have a couple of notebooks in my bed, and I caught a glimpse in one of them: love one day at a time.
It seems that society conspires against the peace that comes from the way of living: society wants you to chase something far away, and while you chase it, make vision boards, mind movies, bombastic declarations, and get caught up in the Desire Trap, which I'd like to rename Wanting Trap.
And although the best things come to you as side effect, not as results of goal setting, although what works in like is taking care of the process, keeping your eye on what you are doing, not concerned with big goals, or the future, most people today are caught up in the Wanting Trap, and live a life of unhappiness, and underachieving.

I have shared with you my experience as an architect... what ultimately failed me or made me fail... and want to quit.
But I'll repeat it here, in the wake of a TED talk I just listened to: the tendency of life and formal education to march on leaving you with holes in your understanding, holes in your knowledge.
In the third year of my studies I spent nearly the whole first semester in and out of hospitals, 10 weeks out of the 14 weeks. I manage to get a passing grade, but, looking back now, I would have been better off, had I been forced to repeat that semester a year later.
I had a big hole in my education. I could have had more than one hole... but I had one...
By the way, this is exactly how I "dealt with" the tens of spiritual capacities in the past 30 plus years: "chew" on one until I got all the juice out of it.
Spiritual capacities are a lot like a language: with each new one a whole new world, a whole new understanding becomes available. A whole new person. A whole new way of looking at the world.
I've read somewhere that schizophrenia and speaking several languages are intimately connected: the new language brings about as much change as if you were had grown a new personality... They probably should have written: multiple personality disorder... Disorder smisorder... Bah.
The purpose of the Tree of Knowledge is to keep you from doing your own assessments, to take ready ideas and swallow them whole. Ultimately the aim of the Tree of Knowledge is to keep you in sheep state.
If you ever visited a mental institution, you have seen the zombie-like patients, that whenever they started to act as people, they were injected with chemicals, to make them comply.
The Tree of Knowledge is the larger than a psychiatric ward solution to the same "problem". The Tree of Knowledge controls you with words and words that carry emotions.
I am reading a book, The One Thing. Tai recommended it, so I had been resisting.
But like most of the books Tai recommends, it does have a kernel of gold... Maybe more than one kernel.
One of these is what he says about will power. Quite fascinating and very useful.
He says, that just like glycogen, brain food for thinking, will power uses energy, food, and can be depleted.
I don't have to rely on will power, because about a year ago I started to reorganize my life to habitually do the things that serve me, and remove the opportunities for doing things that don't serve me.
For those of you who came here just for the numbers: the guy is guided by greed. Dr Eric Berg's personal vibration is 170, the same as Tai Lopez, cut from the same cloth... and the method depends a lot on your accuracy, as you'll see. But it is 7% at its best.
I wrote this article when I was 33 pounds heavier, and a lot less happy with my life.
I have, since, advised many clients who, except for two, did really well on my recommendations.
The two made up their own loose interpretation of what I meant, and never actually did what I asked them to do.
Now, I don't actually care about your weight. I really think you should not either. You should care whether you are well or not. When people get well, they drop all the weight. I have a simple muscle test I do (don't forget I am an empath and I am connected to Source when I muscle test... so there is a difference between muscle test and muscle test... your garden-variety nutritionist is inaccurate...) Want to know your health number? It is a percentage... 1-100. You can get it for five bucks...
If you want to enslave a man, the best and fastest way to go about it is to rob the man of his common sense, his guidance system.
Train him to not trust his feelings. In anything. Train him that he can't trust his feelings. Train him that all decisions should be made by men smarter than him. Train him that he can't be trusted to made decisions about the education, the health about his children.
Train him by printing on plastic bags that they should not be put in the cradle... because a child may suffocate playing with it... Do this so the man will stop thinking for himself and start relying entirely on thing being given to him chewed and digested.
