I bought a book today (Ikagai 1 for business) on creating a purpose, both individually, and for a business.
I have just started reading it… I measured its truth value. It’s 20%.
And then I had the idea of asking a different question I have been meaning to ask: How much of the missing 80% is something that the person doesn’t say, cannot say, because he doesn’t know? And it was high: 70%. And the remaining 10% is just simple untruth, mistake, wrong knowledge.
Then I got a report from one of my students/accountability partners. He says:
I spent some time pondering. I saw the value and the importance of seeing things for myself, taking time to gather my own evidence to support views, to make it my own. To keep moving towards clarity. Otherwise, I’m just repeating memes, i.e. lying. The difference between assessment and assertion
My heart smiled. He is getting it. His truth value is growing.
99% of the world repeats memes, Tree of Knowledge, that they have no personal evidence for, experience about, they just words that maybe even the writer or the speaker is just repeating. Utterances. But they are repeating “truth”… and in their mouths the truth becomes a lie.
As I am working to strengthen the integrity of my site (slow going and a lot of mundane work) I re-read some of my earlier articles, and I am amazed how good they are.
I wish I could just take a metaphorical funnel and pour them all in your brain… But…
You probably would not be able to use any of it.
Anything you don’t earn, or you don’t feel your earned will be rejected by your higher self…
At some period in my life I wrote articles about strippers and strip clubs, and was stupefied by the strippers’ behavior. They earned their money in a way that their higher self did not condone, so they had to get rid of all their money, and fast.
Some, where this inner conflict didn’t exist, invested their money and became rich.
Life, money, success, failure is how you look at it.
