I feel and I behave like an injured quarterback without my usual programs at my usual computer.
And the big winter storm is here… so I most likely won’t get the new computer on Thursday… Eh, we’ll just limp along, and it will turn out the way it will turn out… I can handle it.
One of the topics that have come up from students over the past few days is their difficulty to focus.
I say it is ADHD. Now, I am not a doctor, but then again, that’s a good thing. Because as long as you have some medication to take, you don’t pay attention to anything: you let the meds do the work, and you become a slave. Even if the meds work, Actually, especially if the meds work.
I don’t have ADHD. But I do have, from time to time, ADHD symptoms. Continue reading “Can a spiritual capacity turn off ADHD-like symptoms? Procrastination?”
When I wrote the article about racial, ancestral identity and its importance, I touched on something that is not valuable for most people… because I didn’t go deep enough and I didn’t accurately identify what it takes to be proud of who you are, where you belong.
I got on the phone with one of the people who was very unhappy about that article… I was eager to talk, because it is near impossible to go beyond the visible by yourself. It is a whole lot easier when you get input… because what is invisible to you can be visible for another.
The conversation was fruitful… And the insight to me was: it is not virtues, it is principles that form the basis of a happy life… I will elaborate…

You live in a world of your own design… Time to reinvent yourself as someone you can love
Your own design is like a filter you look through. You can’t see the filter, just like you don’t see the window unless you touch it…
A filter is like a pair of glasses…
A filter is also like a pair of glasses… They can be dark tinted, they can be yellow, green… and the world occurs differently with each pair of glasses. You can’t see that it’s the glasses that make the world look the way the world looks to you… unless you can take it off…
You can see only the ripples. The indication that there is something there…
It’s the ripples that we don’t like… we don’t like the things we do, the things we think, the things we feel. We want to change the ripples. But the ripples are the surface of the iceberg… hidden, invisible…
But you can’t change something that you don’t know. You can’t change something that you don’t see.
We all want to reinvent ourselves, our world. Because what we have now is not working too well, not serving us too well. We can’t have what we want, and we suffer.

When you decide on an organizing principle, aka direction for your life, you’ll suddenly find yourself with obstacles blocking even your view of the horizon, let alone your path.
This article is about that…
Some ten years ago I learned a valuable way of looking at making life meaningful, or living a meaningful life. The teacher suggested that we pick a horizon, a direction, and then look what’s blocking the way of getting there.
Since then I saw that even seeing the horizon is blocked… Blocked by seven boulders, lined up one behind the other, blocking your view, blocking your movement.
So, in my coaching practice, when I ask people to set a direction, and they can’t see any, I am inclined to suggest that they choose the direction: living a meaningful live, or a fulfilled life… without specifying what it is.
The goal is to see the first boulder that blocks your view, that blocks your path.

Politically correct living, living for someone else’s sake robs you of seeing who you really are.
I am talking about everybody. Empaths are a special case… they really don’t know much until they become conscious empaths.
Life cannot be lived authentically, unless you know who you are.
Authentic living means being the same inside and out. The more you are authentic, the higher your vibration.
So finding out who you are is mandatory if you want to be well, feel well, and do the best with what you got. This is what this article is helping you to do.

Part One: Knowing yourself is key to being able to change
We all think that we know ourselves… and then when it turns out to be wrong, we are surprised, but unphased in our certainty that we know ourselves.
Why is it nearly impossible to you to know yourself?
Because self-reflection is an intangible, spiritual capacity that can only open up if and when you look at your effect, your reflection, your feedback from the world around you. Continue reading “Why You Keep Signing Your Future Self Up for Stuff You Don’t Actually Want to Do”
How your integrity, or the lack of it is one of the keys to your raising your vibration, or not raising it…
Yesterday we had a last session of the course, From Upset to Communication.
The call was nearly all about integrity… or the lack of it.
There are countless ways to violate integrity.
The most significant ways are
- lying by commission
- lying by omission.
We all tend to know when we actually say something that is a lie…
We rarely know when we lie because we don’t know what is the truth
And we almost never realize that withholding the truth is the worst thing we can do for ourselves. It is a lie by omission.
I have written about, and taught the inner dynamic of perpetration-withhold before, but it seems that it is never enough. I have 3000 articles on this site, and no person can read them all… We are talking about more than 30 full size book worth of articles… that is a lot.

Why is it so difficult to change?
I am in the business of causing change… Causing you to cause change for yourself…
Because ultimately YOU cause the change, YOUR actions cause the change… I am pointing you towards the actions that can cause change, towards the thinking that can cause change, towards the books, ideas, principles… and you either change or you don’t…
People always teach what they need to learn. I am not an exception.
Change is hard for me… until it is easy. And what happens between the two stages is what this article is about…
When I look at my students, change is always the challenge… and this article, hopefully, will make my job easier by making you more conscious of the inner dynamic…
Continue reading “Why Is It So Hard to Change? A new (for me) look at what’s under the hood…”
Yesterday I spoke about reaching the magic 200 vibration… and falling back…
When I look at the common cause in everyone I have ever observe falling back, the common cause is one thing.
The TLB score. Your Twitchy Little Bastard score…
The TLB score measure to what degree you are willing to postpone gratification.
Most people I observe feel entitled, act entitled. Entitled to pleasure, entitled to smooth, entitled to politeness, and courtesy, and love, and sex, and nice things.
Now, what is underneath of entitled is going to surprise you: it is scarcity. Anyone who doesn’t live in the scarcity mindset: I can only be happy if… is going to have a higher TLB score, and will be OK to work towards what they want.

About the title: an astute person is a person who can see things for what they are
On the Tree of Knowledge we are taught to listen to words instead of looking at reality.
In essence we are cut off from our direct experience of life.
In my classes the biggest challenge is to cause the students to see. Unless the seeing comes with words, explanation, they can’t see.
See patterns, see the story behind a picture, see cause and effect, see similarity, see differences, see what they need to see to maneuver life.
Astute is a person who can see things for what they are without having to ask for help, explanation, etc.
