Greed: Impatience, Hurry, Wanting, Forcing, Craving, Pursuing, Fighting For. Even What You Call “Loving” Is Greed. Sorry to burst your bubble…
And all resistance in the chest, in the pit of the stomach and in the shoulders… whatever the reasoning.
What is the opposite of greed?
I mean, if you knew that anything with any element of greed in it works to your detriment: it makes you miserable, and it repels what you are greedy for… You would get curious what is the opposite of greed, wouldn’t you?
Talk about double punishment!
Empathically (feeling your feelings) looking: greed is a tightening. The shoulders try to get closer to each other and want to meet in the middle. Why? I am the reporter, not the theorist, sorry.
Your upper body is like a bow and arrow: designed for attacking, set for killing. All energies are outward directed, propelled away from the inside. The inside is ignored, de-valued, dis-respected, emptied. All that is valuable seems to be on the outside of oneself. The desire is to fill the empty space, the de-valued self… is misdirected.

In my coaching I am seeing a phenomenon that can only be understood once you start mastering the 13th floor through the books, ground breaking new book “Feelings” by Margoczi, and the follow-up: “Words,” plus through getting to know your feelings… The Feelings webinars can help you get started in that.
Sidenote: the author of the book isn’t even willing to entertain the word: emotions. This should tell you something.
In the world of symbols, the level of words, most people use the words feeling and emotion interchangeably, but they are actually not even connected directly.
- Feelings are a 13th floor phenomenon. They are as physical as anything, measurable, and make a lot of sense.
- Emotions are a 15th floor phenomenon, and are entirely culturally defined. They are the marker feelings of words… and there is nothing that makes sense about them. Anything that is culturally defined is designed to confuse and enslave you. No kidding.

There is a deep human need to make our lives controllable. To be in control. To be certain. To be safe.
And there is this deep human need to see more, be more, feel more, have more, experience more.
They point to opposing directions, and they tend to jerk you back and forth.
It’s an oscillating structure.
Like every oscillating structure, the tension between the two extremes cannot be resolved, there is no ess… the battle will continue as long as… let me address that later.

The “What’s The Truth About You” workshop series is kicking off this afternoon.
As usual I haven’t done any preparation: I never do. I like my life, my teaching fluid. Freezing it would be to ignore guidance, stop growing, and start becoming a sculpture on a pedestal.
I slept well last night. I had a ton of guiding dreams. All about what I am trying to do in the workshop this afternoon: take you over the threshold between human and human being.
Being human means being a poisonous tree.
You weren’t born that, you became that. You are poisonous in predictable ways, along predictable lines, predicted by your soul correction.

I have been curious why certain things I could do, like certain marketing moves, but I am not doing them.
Actually, there are quite a few things that I know I can do, and I don’t do them.
What’s there is fear. Mortal fear.
I am sure you recognize yourself. Recognize that mortal fear. In ordinary language we call this procrastination. So if you are a procrastinator, if you think you are a procrastinator, listen up!
In this article, I’ll attempt to see more about what’s going on, so maybe we end up with a distinction… a distinction that hands the power back to us, so the fear will let us do the things we see we could do, so we can become all we can be.

The single reason most people don’t want to work with me is this: I will rob them (attempt to) of their sob story.
What’s a sob story?
Well, everybody has one… It was born after an incident in early childhood.
Something happened, and you made a decision about yourself, about the world, about your mother.
Some people have interlocking decisions, making the sob story as strong as a Greek myth.
As long as your sob story is intact, you lie through your life to maintain it, because, it feels, that with the sob story you die too.
Not the real you, the persona you invented.

Another issue that has been driven up by the “Gate of Heaven” workshop is this:
In certain cultures women are told they are inferior. They are supposed to be pretty, but not smart. They are property: they are treated as property.
Women resent this. So revolt is normal and necessary.
But… The tools of asserting your right to be, to be treated as a person, to be considered important, to be respected, the tools, the methods, the beingness come from a place of powerlessness.
You are honoring and strengthening the status quo, while you are fighting it.
So your tools are going to be ineffective, because they will deal with the surface, the symptom, not the cause.
The cause of this phenomenon is not the men, not society, but you, the woman, who accepts it, complies, and who gives up her power.

One thing you already know about me: if I find something that says what I want to say better, I put it in my article. I have no ego about it. Actually, the story I tell myself about it is that only brilliant people can be humble… and that is both true and a lie. Actually, the truth is that humility, the willingness to say “I don’t know”, the willingness to say “did I get that right?” are both the result and the cause of brilliance… So no matter how you look at it, I am brilliant… lol. Now that was fun, lol. A lot of fun. Now, onto the quoted article:
What stories do you tell yourself concerning your disappointments, failures and embarrassments? Were you the unfortunate victim of evil?
Perhaps it’s time you start telling different versions of those stories. Regret and fear are incapable of guiding you to Success.
The stories you tell yourself are the foundations of your self-image. The self that will either get things done or not.
“The first principle of self-deception is you must not fool yourself — and you are the easiest person to fool.” — Richard Feynman, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics
There are many ways in which the truth can be told.

Sometimes guidance comes from a student or client request.
Today I heard from a long time client who never managed to go from a to be… despite of the many courses she came to.
She had a difficult time accessing an activator, part of the Second Phase Activators (I downloaded more than 100 activators in that course!). I checked and she was right, somehow the video got corruteed in the more than three years it was moved around…
I listened to it and it dawned on me that without activating humility, of course you’ll never learn anything. Anything new, I mean.
Here is the article I wrote at the time, and in the meantime I am trying to rescue that video: given that it is the cornerstone of all learning, all growth, all evolution, all raising your vibration, if necessary, I’ll dedicate another webinar to the topic…
In the meantime, here is the “oldie but goodie” article
