Reality… the pragmatic approach that removes the misery, the suffering, even frustration

Back in the early 70's I had a live-in boy friend, who was a philosophy student. His father was a famous philosopher, was a Hegel expert.

Hegel, I hear, is one of the most impenetrable philosopher to me. The family, father and three sons, had regular philosophy lessons.

I am not interested in philosophy, not a debating/argumentative person, but lately I am encountering philosophical questions that are at the root of my teaching: teaching you to be in harmony with life, teaching you to live a happy life. 1

One of the most important questions here is what is reality, what is real, because all that unhappiness we experience comes from what is not real. Continue reading "Reality… the pragmatic approach that removes the misery, the suffering, even frustration"

What if it is unlikely that you can become the best version of you? Is it still worth going for it?

Something I just read made me get up from bed and come back to my computer. It is something I have almost forgotten... even though it was one of the most important things I have ever learned.

It is: instead of fighting the bad, grow the good.

Of course, some of the principles we live by become invisible... this is one of those.

It's not my invention. In fact the two wolves the Indian (Native American) tale speaks of, use exactly this principle: feed the good in you.

But the way it was worded in the book I just read was more profound. It says: Let me grow more of the good myself so the bad is less of me.

I didn't need to kill the iceman (in me). I didn't even need to fight him. I just needed to make more of myself, so that he would be less of me.

How do you change the past?

The full title of the Playground course is: Playground: it's never too late to have a happy childhood.

Why is that significant? And what the heck does even mean?

The past is the past, and you cannot change it, they say, but if you look in history books, you'll see that it does... depending on the point of view of the historian... 1

In the Playground we re-write your history. Not in a fancy, inventive, "you create your life" kind of way... we actually go back to the root incidents, and look at them through different filters, through learning about different invisible dynamics. Continue reading "How do you change the past?"

Want to become competent in life? Competence is rare… even professionals are not very competent

I watched, mostly listened to the "masterclass" selling Eric Edmeades' Wildfit course.

The truth value of what Eric Edmeades said was 30%. There was nothing in it that was untrue... it just cannot go higher when you have a product for mass consumption, a one size fit all product.

Eric Edmeades' vibration is 200.

As in every masterclass, he was having a conversation with Vishen Lakhiani, who looks fabulous, but is insufferable, for the most part. His vibration is 150. Continue reading "Want to become competent in life? Competence is rare… even professionals are not very competent"

The Game of Life: Are You Trying To Win The Game With Just One Cannon?

Higher Vibrational Frequency and Winning In The Game of Life: Will You Choose It?

I had a totally weird feeling this morning. It felt like everything that is in this universe is just one of the many universes, and it is really all about how I play the game.

Go beyond where you normally stop… But where? How? Show me the path…

Prologue

I woke up disgruntled... almost ready to go into devastation (which is my "home page") but it all changed as I sat down and began to write. What was going to be a rant, became a celebration.

I guess I wasn't stuck with or invested in resisting being someone who rants when I feel beaten, or slighted, or hurt... It seems that I accepted, embraced, and it got out of my face... All unconscious competence, by the way. I didn't have to sit around and analyze it... it just happened. ...and I could look and see the whole picture... as much as I can see from it.

This is exactly what I teach in the Playground... this is the goal: unconscious competence in getting unstuck, and being able to see the whole reality, with all its beauty and all its ugliness.

Go beyond where you normally stop... But where? How? Show me the path...

Seeing Wide and Far plus seeing Reality is the key to the Kingdom

This are the rarest human qualities, rarest capacities of all. They require high level of consciousness... that is why.

Of course no one is high consciousness or low consciousness... we are all on a scale of consciousness.

For example I discovered, doing the experiment with the candy yesterday, through glimpses of my behavior and thoughts, that side by side the high vibration, high consciousness person there are remnants of callousness (showing or having an insensitive and cruel disregard for others, cold hearted, unfeeling) that I wasn't aware of. It includes me, it includes my health, it includes everyone.

I woke up at 3 am from a nightmare... a tiger was licking my dog (I don't actually have a dog, I have never had one) before it would eat it, and it was all my fault... I was scrambling for some weapon, until I stumbled onto a rake, and stabbed the tiger with it and it let go of the poor dog. Continue reading "Seeing Wide and Far plus seeing Reality is the key to the Kingdom"

Feelings, emotions… what should you do with them?

Most people have one or two tools in their tool box... And what is even stranger: they don't want any more. Why?

Some of you cannot deal with complexity, and therefore you will deny your right to feel feelings. And some of you will indulge your feelings and never look, never ask any probing questions that could let you see what is really going on...

What am I talking about?

In the Playground program, always starting new groups, we attempt to bring clarity to life, we attempt to reclaim our power over our lives by separating what life seems to be, what seems to be happening in many different ways. One of these is having a "reality" side, everything a Martian could see or detect, and another that is all words. Continue reading "Feelings, emotions… what should you do with them?"

Frames… what they are, and how they limit your success, your happiness, your health…

Everybody talks about subconscious beliefs, but I have seen no evidence that there is such a thing. On the other hand almost no one is talking about what's REALLY limiting you in life: your frames.

If you call something that it is not, you take away the power from the individual... and set them up to pay through the nose, and still remain the same.

Some people are masterful with frames, and their wealth is a testament to that... Tony Robbins is one of these guys.

I have been listening to this investment banker, Oren Klaff, who wrote a book (Pitch Anything) and is now speaking to crowds successfully. 1

His job is do or die... raise the money or die... every day.

Or as a public speaker, raise the enthusiasm of the crowd... or die.

What's his secret?

Frames. Controlling the frames inside which people listen to him. Continue reading "Frames… what they are, and how they limit your success, your happiness, your health…"

How to get reasonably clear of your past?

This morning, while I was measuring someone's starting point measurements, I wondered if there was another word for the desire measure. 1 And it is... drumroll: entitlement. The person feels entitled to get from nature, from the universe, from the world those things that are desired without having to earn it, work for it, barter for it, compete for it... just because they are themselves. Knowledge, love, respect, compliments, stuff, money... It is almost always the same number as the lack of humility number, how much you think of yourself as the center of the universe, as it's about you, take things personally.

The higher those two numbers are the less satisfying life becomes, because you always feel cheated.

Every young child thinks that the world, other people, their emotional state and response is centered around them.

So when something happens, and something always happens! they are sure it has something to do with them, that somehow they caused it. Continue reading "How to get reasonably clear of your past?"
