Who are you? Are you The Dude, or are you your name?

who are you?I just read an article in the Monday Morning Memo and I cringed. It hit me what b.s. is being propagated as wisdom.

As you have seen, if you have been with me for more than a week, you would know that I knock the idea of beliefs being important to your success in life. And after reading Roy Williams article, I am also going to start knocking the notion that the why is what’s important. Continue reading “Who are you? Are you The Dude, or are you your name?”

Want to Beat Fear? Here is your Secret: Because Of Great Love One Is Courageous

beat fear with love. because of great love one is courageousBeat fear? Beat it with love…

Because Of Great Love One Is Courageous (Lao Tzu)

I have an exploratory course. It’s called HeartConnection Meditation.

The goal was to get to a combination of methods to awaken courage.

What we, human beings, experience when courage is needed is fear. And we concentrate on the fear, either by talking about it, or by hiding it. But either way it occupies our entire field of (inner) vision.

When I ask a student what it is that they have the biggest issue with, they say fear.

So I asked the Creator what was the Seat of Courage, and I got the surprising answer: the heart. Continue reading “Want to Beat Fear? Here is your Secret: Because Of Great Love One Is Courageous”

Case study: My racket

gears of the racketMy racket, as most rackets, was created by some act of stupidity. The natural stupidity of a 3-year old.

I did the 4-day Forum back in 1987… and I learned about racket. Or maybe it was later? In a later incarnation for the Forum? Does it matter? I learned about it when I learned about it… long time ago.

It seemed to me that every complaint is a different racket, and I wasn’t alone with that. Everyone thought that.

Staff members’ favorite slight to each other and participants was: ‘That is just a racket!’ pronounced in a tone designed to diminish you. Continue reading “Case study: My racket”

Magic Bullet… How To Make a Miracle

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.

Republished: Your Life’s Purpose Can Be Expressed in a Sentence… What’s Your Sentence?

Watch this video.

The first part, where he brings examples of the sentence: if you tune in deep inside you, you may be able to come up with your sentence, and then you can design your life around it.

That sentence will be your functional expression of your life’s purpose.

Good luck.

This won’t be my first experiment that either succeeds or not. Either prove or disprove a theory.

We live in a culture that wants answers, certainty, security, and abhors uncertainty. We live in a culture that we want instant results… and we act accordingly.

So my work doesn’t appeal to many people, because I am an experimenter.

I ask questions and then I test them… Every question is a theory. A theory that needs to be proven or disproved, if possible.

This, about Tinnitus, won’t be my first experiment that either succeeds or not. Either prove or disprove a theory. (The theory is that a break in your ‘energy body” will show up, to me, a true empath, as a pullable cord, attachment, and if I pull it, the noise in the ear will stop.)

A theory is just that… an idea that may be true. Arguments won’t decide it. Only experiments. Continue reading “This won’t be my first experiment that either succeeds or not. Either prove or disprove a theory.”

How can you get to do what you most love to do for a living?

do-for-work-what-you-love-to-doI had today, being Sunday, my Sunday call, the one I’ve had for 9 years now.

We’ve spoken about a lot of things. One of them will be of special relevance to you.

That is, why people want to change.

It all came out of both of us watching the first few sessions of the 67 steps, excellent, by the way. But what’s most interesting is that what he is getting out of it, and what I am getting out of those sessions, the 67 steps, are so different: it is hard to believe that we are talking about the same program.

The biggest issue the program brings up is deserving. And I think that is the biggest issue, the biggest missing issue for almost anyone I know, except professional marketers.

What is the capacity that is like a linchpin… if you have it you can enter the kingdom

allowing - the linchpinI am a lot like you, except not always. I am forceful with the best of them, except I am not always forceful. I can be limp and resigned, like you, except that I am not always limp and resigned.

I have mastered to a large degree the capacity “allowing.”

One of the readers says in a comment: I have been practicing dropping the pen, and yet I find no change in my attitude towards anger that I don’t want.

Dropping is forceful. Surrendering is forceful. Changing is forceful.

Republished: You Can’t Get Enough Of What You Don’t Want: The Nature Of Reality

you can't get enough of what you don't wantYou Can’t Get Enough Of What You Don’t Want

Warning: this is a very advanced article. You should probably start with the easier ones if you are here for the first time. OK?

An interesting glitch in the nature of reality is that our driving desire, the answer to our dreams, the one thing that would seem to fix our complaints doesn’t fix anything.

We could say that you can’t fix what’s not broken. and actually it would be a very astute remark.

But if that is the case, that the thing we are trying to fix isn’t broken, why does it seem that, what we most complain about not having, would fix it?

Our story viewed as a detective story. Who put us on the path of self-destruction? And how can we return to the original path?

human beingLet me share with you how I get to bombastic statements like that: I have been going through some soul searching, and it’s been rough.

Working on two projects is upsetting the apple cart, which doesn’t feel very good, but is really good for me.

Unless you put yourself into a challenging situation, you have the illusion of growth, but it only becomes real when you are forced to use what you got… And then you know what you have… Like K., one of my students who is going on a 10-day visit with her mother and other relatives that have traditionally driven her crazy. We shall see if all the work, if all the activators, if the HOE long range will have created a new K. or not. And if not quite, what have we accomplished, and what more do we need to accomplish so she can have a good time, no matter what.
