Here is another example for the unless (or-ness)… the distinction I’ve been trying to teach you, so far quite unsuccessfully. Why? Because it is really simple, but is really hard… and I am not quite able to express myself clearly yet… I am getting there, I promise.
Here is the article from 2011.
I caught myself, red handed, up to my chin in misery, wallowing… yuck.
I had been depressed for two straight days. It wasn’t someone else’s feeling, it was mine. It sucked. I mean, literally, it sucked me dry, took away my aliveness… Continue reading “I Can’t Be Happy Unless… How to get out of your own way?”
It was about 10 years ago. I was getting somewhat better by drinking energized water. Not well, mind you, better. My skin was clearing up, and I had less occurrences of narcolepsy, where I would fall asleep in the middle of speaking, or driving.
I was way up in Colorado. It was a seminar by Marshall Thurber. I was already muscle testing my food… and most everything they had there tested “no” for me.
One of the “celebrity guests” at the seminar was Bill Harris. He is an excellent marketer, the marketer of Holosync. I was a diligent Holosync user… so I was excited seeing him there.
On the last day he and I started to talk (I think I was stalking him) and it came to the topic of water… I started to share about energized water.
He got really upset, and self-righteous, saying that it was bullshit, water is water is water.
I never used Holosync again. I use Bill’s emails to see what I should avoid. Like Mary Morrissey, whose program he is pushing today.
So this article is going to be about the invisible… and inside that invisible, a little bit about Mary Morrissey. Continue reading “How to avoid getting hooked…”
Good enough, the Pareto principle… how you get tripped up by the numbers
80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts.
This translates to a lot of mischief.
I just read an article, OK, I read 20% of it… lol… about China, and about chabuduo… that is Chinese for Good Enough.
The problem is standards.
Your 100%, the Chinese 100%, and my 100% are not the same.

I have been dealing with arrogance in my students.
Arrogance is unearned boastful superiority.
Most people don’t know, don’t care because they themselves are not achievers… but you can have confidence that is justified by your accomplishments, your superior knowledge.
To the uninitiated, they look and sound the same. But they aren’t. You only need to scratch the surface.
I have detected a certain ancestral commonality in that behavior.
And have been pondering why and how and for what purpose are certain nationalities arrogant.

The hardest thing to navigate, at least for me, is to take myself out of the center… Maybe because of my soul correction “Forget Thyself” but it comes back to make me miserable periodically.
I have been testy lately.
I have always wanted to be significant. Do significant things. Be admired… blah blah blah.
What I didn’t realize that like everything ego desire based, desire to receive for the self alone, it has a shadow side.
When you are significant, and someone doesn’t give you what you think they are supposed to… you are angry and miserable.
So this is what has been going on…
Please listen with compassion… or not… it’s really up to you. But if you can listen with compassion, you may learn something that can make a difference for you… If you listen with judgment, your misery will deepen… I will be fine either way.

Every soul correction is about correcting the desire to receive (Light) for the self alone.
If you were born, you have a soul correction.
There is no jumping into “desire to receive for the sake of sharing”, which selfless, charitable, do gooders try to do.
Being charitable, giving, do-gooding, selfless is NOT desire to receive for the sake of sharing, it is just more “desire to receive for the self alone.”
As I am sitting here pondering one of my favorite students’ Reclaim share where she is proudly telling me that her husband walked in during the webinar, evidently hungry, she could courageously ignore him and not be interrupted.
You may not hear anything: I hear “nasty piece of work”, or simply: “desire to receive for the self alone.”

Having a child is like causing your own immortality. Your genes live on in your child, and your ego really wants that child to be the best… better than you.
You want to live through your child, and you want it to be glorious, even if your actual life is… hm… shitty?
The child, by the way, considers this an unfair binding… and resents it, wiggles out of it… the child wants to be free, make her own mistakes… have a life that is hers alone.
That is the norm.
