The plot thickens

In flu season the only things that can keep you safer are staying away from other people, frequent washing of hands, and being already well... high functioning immune system.

Normally this is a picture of me... but not this time around.

I have a weakened immune system, and I went to my exercise class yesterday.

I could even feel when the bug landed in my nose. I immediately sprayed my throat with my Dr. Schulze throat spray: I don't go anywhere without it. And I skirted a full blown flu... I hope. I spent the rest of the day in bed, shivering and blowing my nose. I also gave myself at least 10 liver cleanses. 1 Continue reading "The plot thickens"

Want to be the one who is making the decisions in your life?

back-to-the-future-2This week has been a success for Life, and a disaster financially. Everyone was spending their money on turkey, I guess.

So I am going to announce some sales for this coming week. I'll make them good... so you'll buy.

Now, about the successes that lead me to a huge insight.

Everything that people do is guided by memes, and they think they decided to do it. And you think they decided to do it from the goodness of their heart, from the badness of their heart, whatever seem to be the case. But in fact they never decided anything... It is the memes that are doing the deciding. Continue reading "Want to be the one who is making the decisions in your life?"

Not all complaints are created equal plus a funny story to wake you up

wake-up-dudeThis article may be the most important article you'll ever read... This is not an exaggeration. Any day is a good day to wake up, but around these weeks of greed and herdlike stomping to get more stuff, it is especially a good time. So, as you understand, this is a wake up article...

We all say we hate complainers. And we all complain.

But is there any form of complaint that is not a downer, that is not a racket, that is a good thing?

I like to watch entire series of television shows on Netflix. If I don't like it, I just start another one. No commercials, no TV needed, easy.

I watched Foyle's War, a British series, and I was encouraged: well written, well played. So I started to watch a Swedish series, Wallander. Five stars... must be good.

Your consciousness is blocked from flying, your consciousness is starved

caged-consciousnessOne of the reasons the 67 steps coaching is wonderful, is because, done the right way, it leads consciousness on a trip that is both wide and deep. Wider than deep, by the way. But even if you remain on the surface, but go where the steps take you, you can raise your consciousness by a lot.

The insight came to me while sleeping... I was taken somewhere, and I consistently refused to go down a certain "tunnel"...

And that is the life of a human. It is defined more by the places you don't go than the places you do. Literally.

I know a lot of people who read, but dismiss certain topics, certain authors, certain ideas or ideology... so they don't have to go down the "tunnel".

Tunnel could be called "rabbit hole" if you wish. 1 Continue reading "Your consciousness is blocked from flying, your consciousness is starved"

The Truth of the Story you tell… or how to change your future by changing the story

your story gives you your lifeYour story is boring, repetitive, and fixed. You tell it the same every time the same way, and it gives you a life of gloom and doom, an ever narrowing, ever more impoverished version of the Life you could have.

This article is about blowing some life into your story, so you can have more life.

"Know something, sugar? Stories only happen to people who can tell them." - Allan Gurganus

Gurganus is right. The truth happens to everyone, but stories only happen to people who can tell them. And tell them well...

I was looking at trust, the intangible capacity to trust… and its role in becoming a winner

no trust - no winningIn the past four months that I have been able to turn on individual capacities for people, I have received no request to turn on trust.

Why is that?

After all people, rightly, asked me for self-trust. But self-trust won't be enough.

So what can be the current world view with regards to trust, that trust doesn't come up as number one to turn on.

Because, whether you know it or not, without trust there is no winning. Without trust there is no flow. Without trust there is no fulfillment.

When I measured some winners in life, for whom it took years to hone their skills with which they won, money, recognition, admiration... trust was there, fully open.

As you probably already know, I use playing Freecell as my laboratory. It is much the way Richard Dawkins, The Selfish Gene author used the computer simulation "Prisoner's Dilemma"... very enlightening for me.

So, what I saw today, and it's only 6:45 am, lol, that without trust you can only play for keeps, or without trust you can't open your eyes wide, and take steps that will only pay off 20-30 steps down the line. Continue reading "I was looking at trust, the intangible capacity to trust… and its role in becoming a winner"

What does humility mean?

inhale the good shit-exhale the bullshitWhy am I pushing humility, the capacity?

Humility is one of those words that mainstream says it means something other than it actually means.

Humility simply means: you are willing to not take it personally. You are willing to not have it mean anything about you.

Why is this important?

When anything, and I mean any thing means anything about you, you are hooked. Your ego is hooked. It becomes a survival game... and in survival it is an either you or me game.

So, simply put humility means putting ego on pause.

The secret method to instantly change life

Be-the-change-you-want-to-seeContext is like meaning... it is not part of what it is referring to, it is added to it, by a human. And if it is added, then you have a lot of freedom about it: if you can see, that is.

Most people can't see the forest for the trees... so if you are like that, you won't see context, until you look deeper. Beyond the obvious. Beyond your automatic. Beyond your machine-like, conditioned, pre-determined ways.

Why context is decisive, and what it decides if it is so decisive

I have been repeating and repeating this idea, that context is decisive. Finally, yesterday, I managed to get it through, or so it seemed, on the Playground.

Context is the hidden part of everything, the hidden agenda. Everyone has hidden agendas, some more than others, some time more than other times.

Back to the future… A practical and easy method of time travel

back-to-the-future-2Can you go back to the past and change it? Will the future change with it?

Silly sounding question, but it is not as silly as it sounds.

Because we look at life, at what is happening, through the limited perspective of the human mind, we actually don't know what is happening, only

  1. a slice of what happened
  2. only a skewed version of what happened

Ultimately we can only experience and react to what we see, and what we see is both limited and skewed.

Lack of confidence? Difficulty to trust yourself? This article is a must read if you want to become confident!

lack of confidence

Lacking confidence?

Summary: An enlightened being is confident. Confident in their ability to be a match to whatever life throws at them, and therefore they don't fret, don't sit around, they do what it takes to achieve what they set out to achieve.

A confident person can do almost anything. Confidence is not a belief, confidence is a certainty, a KNOWING, and it is a very high consciousness level... it is the capacity to see what isn't there... because that is what it takes to KNOW that you are a match to anything, and if you fail, you'll learn from it... just another way to be a match to life.

We could call the process of becoming confident the Path to Enlightenment...

Enlightenment is a process, that could be called becoming an Expanding Human Being... And the path to confidence... the process to become an Expanding Human Being, is finally ready.
And not surprisingly, this is the same path to a higher vibration, all the way from the puny vibration you have now, to the rarefied height of the 900's, and anything in between.
