When you are afraid… what is there to do?

I am doing a business project with my brand spanking new coach... and...

As it was predictable, this is my fourth day only, I already got to a place, where fear is coming up.

I am glad, because I am so rarely afraid. This will give me an opportunity to notice something Tree of Life for my scaredy cat clients and students.

So I am afraid. IT, the voice, is whispering sweet nothings into my ear, lol. "It's not important." "You are already fine." "What if you lose all the money you've made?" "he doesn't know..." Continue reading "When you are afraid… what is there to do?"

Who you are can be expressed in a sentence… what’s your sentence?

Watch this video.

The first part, where he brings examples of the sentence: if you tune in deep inside you, you may be able to come up with your sentence, and then you can design your life around it.

That sentence will be your functional expression of your life's purpose. It is akin a strong wind that you lean into when you "do" your life.

Good luck.

Want to know mine? From 2010?

How to live your life’s purpose: today

your life is like a trainThere is an audio I recorded four years ago but it is as sharp as anything I do today... at the end of the article

It is about how to live your soul's purpose, and how to start, finally doing something substantial, worth being called your life's work...

In this old audio I address something really important: your being, your attitude, at any moment, is correlated or very influenced, so much that it is given by the future you are heading for.

The future you are heading for is destination towards which the rails of your train go... If you are on a train to Chicago, chances are you are going to arrive to Chicago.

What is the difference between a human and a human being? Simply put: ownership

human-vs-undeadMy work is to take humans from the Valley Of The Shadow Of Death to the Promised Land... to Human Beingness. This post might be an important milepost in that.

I read an article in the Howard Business Review that points out a world view that is at the root of you staying a potential, you staying an effect, in every area of your life.

Although the article is a business article, business is a great analogy to life. Another great analogy is travel.

Travel is a much easier, much more accessible activity, so I will use it, while, if you want to read the original business article, I am enclosing it. 1

Trim Tab, the counter cultural tool of winners

without-trim-tab

TrimmedBoat_bigYou want to raise your vibration? Want to be happy, fulfilled, harmonious, in balance, at peace? This may be the most important article you can read.

Without this tool you have a rough ride, with this tool... your ride is smooth. 1

One of the most counter-cultural distinctions that came from Buckminster Fuller is the trim tab, or small actions that turns big ships.

Soul Correction #39: Diamond in The Rough

soul correction diamond in the roughA diamonds in the rough looks like a piece of rock. If you don't expect it, you will treat it as a rock. Or a shard of glass

But if you are willing to go beyond the surface, you will be rich. Few people ever do that. Not with themselves, not with others, not with anything in the world.

Their shallow view of the world makes their life shallow, and they will go for every glitter, every shiny object. Because they are unwilling to go beyond the top layer, the visible layer.

Republished: You Can’t Get Enough Of What You Don’t Want: The Nature Of Reality

you can't get enough of what you don't want

You Can't Get Enough Of What You Don't Want

Warning: this is a very advanced article. You should probably start with the easier ones if you are here for the first time. OK?

An interesting glitch in the nature of reality is that our driving desire, the answer to our dreams, the one thing that would seem to fix our complaints doesn't fix anything.

We could say that you can't fix what's not broken. and actually it would be a very astute remark.

But if that is the case, that the thing we are trying to fix isn't broken, why does it seem that, what we most complain about not having, would fix it?

Evolution, social genes, and brain plasticity

stoneageYour social genes haven't changed in the past 200,000 years. They are still the same as when humans were hunter gatherers, the stone age. Social genes are the genes that define behavior.

Where do we see this? Hunter-gatherers were not adventurous. They didn't go hunting again, until they had to. They preferred to share, to be nice to each other, that way they didn't have to risk confrontation. This lived in clans, hunted in clans, and followed the leaders.

They judged everything by their first impression of it, or by prejudice: they didn't experiment, didn't stop to think, didn't give second chances. A wolf in sheep's clothing would be accepted as sheep.

And yet, this bunch of scared followers now live in cities, drive cars, study at universities.

Soul Work – are you doing it?

Goodbyes-are-only-for-thoseMy students say that I am harsh. That I don't see the best in people. That I'd catch more flies with honey...

Yeah, I know. Flies love honey... but I am looking to talk to people who aspire to go to the next level of human evolution, and those people are not flies. They are not scared away by reality: they know it will take taking a hard look at reality that is not pretty...

I am a realist. Rob Brezsny is an optimist... he has a lot of honey... yet, a realist finds the work in what he says, and loves it. 1

Rob Breszny writes: While walking in San Francisco, I passed the Pacific Heights Health Club. The sign out front said, "Birthday suits tailored here." It was a witty reference to the idea that working out at a gym helps people get their naked bodies in good shape. I'd like to interpret the sign's message in a different way, and apply it to you. The time is right for you to get back in touch with your raw, original self, and give it the care and the fuel and the treats it has been missing. Who did you start out to be? What does your soul's blueprint say about who you must become? Home in on your source code and boost its signal.

Can you handle it? Can your spouse handle it?

you-can-handle-itWhether a person is successful or not can be boiled down to this question... successful people say they can handle it, unsuccessful people say they can't. And this is where your word (I can/I can't) will give you everything.

I have read about a man whose doctor told him that he had terminal cancer, and he should go home and take care of his things. The man went home, took care of his things. A week later he died.

Turns out he was healthy. He didn't have terminal cancer, he didn't have any cancer, any disease. He died because he said: I can't handle it...
