Often anything can kick you into the horizontal plane1 . I got kicked into it... the horizontal plane, and now I am working my way off... it is not that easy. I can't even connect to muscle test... the horizontal plane is sticky. It wants you, all of you. It eats your life for breakfast.
Let me explain: Humanity (you!) lives on the horizontal plane at this stage of evolution. It is both the starting point and the end state...
On the horizontal plane everything is about comparison. More, better, different...
I have at least 2-3 conversations each day that are so profound they should be made public. Sometimes i do...
Here is one from today:
Him: Wow. I realized on yesterday’s call that there are memes and voices when I am on the call and they are disturbing me to get things more than I am doing. Or disturbing me to look, think and not going to the head. These voices are fear based. “What if I say something wrong, what if I can’t do what she says etc.” It went better yesterday because I was conscious of them and could decide to just let them be noises and have my attention on what you were saying instead.
Me: yes. it is the biggest reason people don’t do well. good catch. thank you for sharing.
I have one meme still very alive… “It is too hard!” lol
and another one, a little bit less “It is hopeless!”
Summary: some six thousand years ago a mind virus was introduced. It lead to the rise of a strong ruling class and a sheep-like plebs. In this article I introduce the first ever remedy to the mind virus: the Unification Energy.
You see, humans have a strong inner connection to wisdom through connecting to All-Knowledge, but the mind virus severed, blocked the connection between the part of each human that connects and the part that they consider themselves to be... the part that has the mind, the subconscious, the body, and the Ego. The part that will look for nourishment, guidance, leadership, meaning, outside: on the horizontal plane.
One of the numbers in your Starting Point Measurements, that people most really painful is your vocabulary number.
Why would someone's vocabulary be so low if they are educated, well read, etc.?
The answer is: because of mind viruses.
The mind virus doesn't want you to be clear. Astute. The mind virus wants you to be sheep: miserable, crowd the churches, the "spiritual healers'" offices. Vote for morons who use big words they themselves don't understand.
The main tools the mind viruses use are confusion and imprecision.
In my work, recently, I am seeing that people cannot tell the difference between a feeling and an emotion. It's the mind virus in action.
What you are, instead alive, is a walking dead, resigned, and settled for the little that, it seems, life has to offer. To you. You see others, seemingly happy, seemingly alive, and you feel regret, shame, and envy.
Your heart, where rain forests and colorful birds, and life used to live, is devastated. The lush rain forests gone, the birds gone, life: gone.
Your ups and downs are tiny, not like a roller coaster. They are about money, or noise, or that you are fat, or skinny, or that you are aging. Irrelevant circumstances.
Maybe it is about someone being sick, maybe dying... but that is also a circumstance. Storm in a teacup.
I have been pondering something that has been really bothering me. I have diagnosed it 90% accurately, but I have no idea how to change it.
And that is the cultural shift towards avoiding work.
I first woke up to it when my favorite teacher, Robert Plank, called it a four letter word, and avoided using it.
The weird and disorienting fact was this: Robert loved getting things done. Actually really loved it. So it was the word, somehow, that appalled him. He lives in California... I thought maybe it had something to do with it.
But since then I realized that it is all over the place.
Nearly all of humanity is infected with the mind virus. Slowly we constitute our whole self and our whole world as our minds, unawares that we are several magnitudes more powerful than the mind... and by mind I mean the storage device of the brain, not the whole brain.
When I ask people on the calls to watch their breathing, or look for blockages, without exception they hold their breath: the mind tells them to do so. Why would the mind do that? Like all virus it is only interested in perpetuating itself, and when you are asked to watch or observe, accidentally! you might access your witness, your Observer, and then you will see the mind for what it is: a pea size hard drive able to do search and compare, and that's it.
