Actually, I continued to participate in Landmark after the incident I'll tell you about... but NEVER intended to contribute any more. Or not really. I was participating from hurt... knowing that what was broken cannot be fixed.
I bought a book today (Ikagai for business) on creating a purpose, both individually, and for a business.
I have just started reading it... I measured its truth value. It's 20%.
And then I had the idea of asking a different question I have been meaning to ask: How much of the missing 80% is something that the person doesn't say, cannot say, because he doesn't know? And it was high: 70%. And the remaining 10% is just simple untruth, mistake, wrong knowledge.
Then I got a report from one of my students/accountability partners. He says:
I spent some time pondering. I saw the value and the importance of seeing things for myself, taking time to gather my own evidence to support views, to make it my own. To keep moving towards clarity. Otherwise, I'm just repeating memes, i.e. lying. The difference between assessment and assertion
My heart smiled. He is getting it. His truth value is growing.
99% of the world repeats memes, Tree of Knowledge, that they have no personal evidence for, experience about, they just words that maybe even the writer or the speaker is just repeating. Utterances. But they are repeating "truth"... and in their mouths the truth becomes a lie.
I watch Netflix series that don't make sense on the surface for me to watch. But when I look, there is no book, no fiction, that would teach me that principle.
I am looking for principles. Principles are a lot like laws. According to the dictionary, a principle is a fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behavior or for a chain of reasoning.
When things don't work, there is something you don't see... when things don't work, most of the time what you don't see is that the principle or principles upon which you build the thing that isn't working, are not sound principles.
If your premises are false, wrong, or mistaken, whatever you build on it won't work.
Oh no! This video software that used to work doesn't work any more. I cried out... This can happen to anyone. Technology changes so rapidly, keeping pace with it is both expensive and time consuming.
Sometimes there is an upgrade. Nowadays upgrades cost money... or the software developer simply abandoned you... and you are stranded with a software that doesn't work any more.
I have been teaching what I teach for seven years. Teach people a world view that has been tested and true, and includes the invisible. This world view is sharply different from the accepted norms... but it works, instead of just being a nice theory like what psychologists and philosophers teach. Or even Landmark Education... or the Kabbalah Centre... or any of the gurus. Continue reading "Create a life you love"
This article could be called a "life hack" which is a fashionable word nowadays. I don't mind... but whatever you'll call it will define it... Because what you'll call it will be a context... What? Yeah...
And context is the ultimate life hack.
Most people don't understand the distinction: context
Why is that a problem? Because of all the elements of life, context is the easiest to change. And when context changes, life changes.
So you don't understanding context means that life cannot change easily, cannot change fast.
