You are stuck on the Tree of Knowledge, trapped by words, unwilling to learn, unwilling and unable to trust anything or anyone. In essence, you are the monkey gripping the banana that was used to trap you, to enslave you, to make you sheep. It is time to learn how it was done, and what it will take to become human again.
I have had people, ex-students, who tried the 67 steps and decided that it is not the way to learn… no matter what Sophie says… They knew better.
I could not put my finger on the attitude. I could see that it didn’t work, I could see that it didn’t serve them, but I didn’t have a word for it.
Until today, through listening to Step 4 of the 67 Steps.
This step, step 4 is about learning through mentors. Mentors are teachers, but not classroom teachers. One-on-one instruction where the teaching is tailored to you. Where you learn through osmosis. You emulate their whole being, how they approach issues… it is largely nonverbal. 1

Every human has the capacity to learn their mother tongue so they can communicate with the people around them. But there is no separate gene for English and Serbian, for example. There is the capacity to learn language.
