Stupid is as stupid does… is it good news for you? what does THAT say about you?

stupid as stupid doesYesterday's "Trapped" article made some splashes and produced some "no echo" dead silence.

It spoke to rule-making, and defined stupid in a new way.

It separated the label "stupid" from the person and placed it on the behavior.

Stupid, as a label on a person, is a future tense "sentence"... sentence as in "the judge sentences you to a lifetime of stupidity". No appeal... Final decision.

Meaning: no matter what you do, who is doing it is a stupid person, and THEREFORE what you ACTUALLY do cannot produce the result you want.

You don't need any more proof of language not even approximating reality, that sentence, that meaning is all you need to see that if you are trapped in the customary language, especially your "self-talk", and take it at face value, you are doomed. Doomed to the attitude of "no matter what I do"... Continue reading "Stupid is as stupid does… is it good news for you? what does THAT say about you?"

The Producers, The Takers, The Waiters, The Hopers, The Wanters… Which One Are You?

In this article that i started seven years ago, I looked at what it is that separates from Producers from Hunters and gatherers

I had a conversation with my friend, Nancy F., yesterday. The topic of the conversation, after some wild twists and turns, settled on what is the secret of Jewish people's success.

Nancy F. has always wanted what Jews had, without having to be a Jew or doing what a Jew does... lol.

Much like my next door neighbor.

She want to be an Israelite without becoming an Israelite.

Here is an example: I look out the window between our houses. I mostly look to see if the mailman has been here so I don't have to go downstairs and climb back a few times a day. Our mail comes at unpredictable times. Continue reading "The Producers, The Takers, The Waiters, The Hopers, The Wanters… Which One Are You?"

It’s hard to be silently brilliant. Lots of thoughts occur when you open your mouth

It's hard to be silently brilliant. Lots of thoughts occur when you open your mouth.

This has been one of the principles I live by.

Now, that finally the harmful effects of the milk protein wore off... and I am returning to being normal.

So my Sunday Rants call was more productive than maybe ever. Not less ranty... mind you, but more insights.

It is very easy to think in a tiny box, and most people live that way. It is even possible for most to stay in that tiny box when they listen to someone, or read something. They never leave, never enlarge the box, never go anywhere.

Because what gives you your world, what you see, your actions, your words, your feelings... that is what is in the box.

I realized that some 29 years ago. It was New Year's Eve, and I spent it on the phone with a Landmark staff member from Detroit.

We took turns to speak the New Year into existence.

When Does Tithing Activate The Law Of Attraction?

tithing: does it activate the law of attraction?Tithing Or Not Tithing, That Is The Question. Does tithing really work?

Now, why does this issue come up, and why now?

I have a client who asked this question, and because he has given me an opportunity to think this over, maybe even channel a little bit of knowledge, here is what I have come up with so far:

Tithing requires you to give from the seed level of vibration of gratitude. From that frequency you can activate value exchange. A value exchange, from a place of equal values changing hands, not from a place of being a bottomless pit in need, asking for handout, asking for more than you can give back. 1 What does that mean? Tithing is a kind of thank-you, appreciation (acknowledging value) expressed on the level of gratitude. 2

So when people ask: what is the vibrational frequency of money, they really should say: what is the vibrational frequency of equal trade? I give you this and you give me that, and we are both winners.

As such a tool tithing works miracles, but there is a problem. Continue reading "When Does Tithing Activate The Law Of Attraction?"
