Google Podcasts | Email | What are you building with that?
This question was my absolute favorite in Landmark Education’s Communication Course…
I have tried to ask it of people outside of Landmark, and the answers I got was always puzzled silence.
So, what am I asking here?
Well, you are always building something. A more popular but less precise way of saying the same thing: you are always creating something… creating yourself, creating your life, every moment.

Google Podcasts | Email | What is the vibrational frequency of money? And how do you match it so you can have lots of money?
It was an email in one of my throwaway email accounts. an email from Stephanie Mulac. She claims that she can cause you to have a vibrational jump. so you too can attract money to your heart’s
So I checked her
vibration, and it is 100… Maybe she is bathing in money, but 99% of humanity doesn’t… 100, the same as her, is the average vibration on the planet right now. I understand you want more money.
It seems that money is the solution for all that ails you. boredom, lack of direction, lack of joy. lack of meaning. your weight, your low income, your drudgery called your job, if you even have one.
Continue reading “What is the vibrational frequency of money?” You wave your magic wand, and bada bing bada bang, a little magic dust, and you have a miracle. Or you take a little pill, and you wake up beautiful, slim, sexy, and rich. Or you pray that God gives you a miracle Or you meditate Or you buy that get-rich-quick scheme that promises overnight money with no work at all Or you play it over and over in the theater of your mind… You feel it… you appreciate everything… still…
But all these don’t cause a miracle.
No matter how skillfully you wave the wand, or how fancy (and expensive) the little pill is, how passionately you pray… etc. etc. etc.
No. none of them work.

The way humans examine things to make sense of them is by taking them apart. It works relative well with people, but with a living thing, it is not that effective.
So humans make up parts and elements… and some seem to work to one degree or another, but nothing quite works perfectly.
The mechanical models medical “sciences” use doesn’t work well at all… we have more diseases than before…
The psychological models of ego, and subconscious, and beliefs, and such don’t work well either… How do we know? Because the results are temporary, or there are no results. Life is simple… The results are the shadow… showing that the method worked or didn’t work.

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.
18 years ago, as I was coaching someone, it became clear to me that there are this four core invisibles, that are underneath every issue, every
distinction, every weird, unethical, unsavory action a human being makes. Continue reading “Why I stopped participating in Landmark Education?” You want to live a life where you say this about yourself, a lot. “…And I lived to tell the tale…”
Where you are on the edge… and come back to tell the tale.
The edge? it feels like the dividing line between life and death. It is just a feeling. Some edge is quite inconsequential, but the going there is tremendous.
I signed up to be coached on Monday, and it’s Sunday, and I am already “fired”.
integrity may be out of integrity for you. Another man’s wisdom is not YOUR wisdom. That is what happened.
I was asked to do something that doesn’t agree, doesn’t foster love between my two selves. Everybody is doing it… but for me to love ME, I can’t do it.
If you are not free to be yourself, then your integrity number is low.
Integrity is an inside job, and only you can call the shot…
But… Without integrity nothing work.
Continue reading “…And live to tell the tale…” Your mind, your stupid part, has no direct knowledge about reality. It has no concern, no regard to reality… It has in it what the memes have programmed it to have… 1% reality, 99% b.s. And your mind is, therefore, your worst friend. It is killing YOU and it is killing your life… sometimes slowly, sometimes really fast.
Every Tuesday I read my email to find my weekly horoscope, and here it goes… again. Setting a
context for my life, a context I could have never dreamed up myself… Rob Brezsny and his weekly horoscopes I would not want to miss. Continue reading “The mind is the stupid part of you…” 1. I think it was in 1991.
A manager of mine in Landmark said: you don’t make a difference.
My answer was: then I must kill myself…
I was banned from participating for about 8 months. By that time the manager and everyone have forgotten the interaction.
It was significant to me, and not significant to them.
Today, I got that I was just one of most, including themselves, who didn’t make a difference.
It sounds bad, doesn’t it? Very bad indeed. From one vantage point.

The expression, came from a student’s father, you are in the bull’s ear, is a great distinction. It is not American, and because it is alien sounding, almost nonsensical, it can wake you up.

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.
