Why do I fight positive thinking, why am I trashing it?
This morning I got to a realization: the students that are not making strides, not moving higher on the evolutionary scale are the students that are confusing "there is nothing wrong in reality" with positive thinking.
Positive thinking says: avoid negativity. Turn your back to it. Make up something nice to say about things you don't like, don't want.
The French has a saying: The more things change the more things remain the same.
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. 1
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.
If you have problems with your hair, your scalp, or with your skin, your teeth, you can research the internet for hours.
And you'll end up with a serious case of "learned helplessness" where you see that in a field where no one has the answer is all you can do is throw your hands up, or try everything and its opposite. All that knowledge will victimize you...
Just for clarification: the Matrix is the same as the Chicken Coop in the novel, White Tiger...
As a mad scientist, my job is to distinguish the "things" that are in your way of direction, in your way of clarity, and to devise ways for you to go around them or through them. 1
One tool that has proven invaluable is isolation. Isolating what you want to see. Seeing it by itself. So you can see it for what it is, in all its glory...
In nature, to our eyes, things are grouped, things are undifferentiated and solid.
Your language supports that too... everything is the same as everything else, except not always. 2 That is how we see. We don't see boundaries, we don't separate out what we want to see, we always see things together. We say: it IS... but there is no "it" and therefore there is no "is". If we said: It seems that ... then we would be closer to reality... but we don't say that. That would require humility. Continue reading "The Matrix… one method of the Matrix is confusion…"
The biggest issue is not what you have. The biggest issue is how you use it.
I get a lot of emails. People want better health. People want more money. People want to make a difference. People want to have a higher vibration.
What no one has said to me: I want to know more. I want to see more. I want to grow.
One of my students wrote to me this morning: How must it be to see so clearly the truth of things invisible to others? I wonder.
If I took you on the top of the Empire State building, you would be able to recognize a few landmarks, more if you are from New York.
Vibration, the number, is like the number of floors you are above street level.
But it is not enough to be higher, it is important to see things for what they are.
Actually: what raises your vibration is seeing things for what they are. The more precisely and accurately you see things for what they are, the higher your vibration. Astute is the common name for it.
