Humans have a dual nature, a dual nature that is the enemy of growth, enemy of learning, enemy to the survival of the species...
Arrogance and pride...
Arrogance is duality itself.
It says, on one hand: I already know. I know. I am beyond that.
On the other hand: OMG, I am so stupid. I make so many mistakes. I better slow down, and not be so sure.
We call the arrogant side "it" in this article. And it talks. And it knows. And it pontificates...
What "it" says it knows? It knows everything. It knows if it is worth it to listen, if it is worth for you to do. It knows if you can. It knows the future, the past, what it all means, what it doesn't mean, what it's all about, what is important and what isn't. Continue reading "Spiritual Arrogance"
There are really two types of people when it comes to making more money: one group will chase the mirage, the lottery approach, winning, betting on schemes... and the other, the tiny group that sees that making more money is a natural fallout of becoming worth a damn. 1
I am interested in talking to the second group, the tiny group.
You see, knowing that you should become worth a damn is nice and dandy... but knowing with pinpoint accuracy where you aren't... what it is that you need to do next to increase your worth a damn factor is crucial.
Some insights on health, and why things are the way they are, and why are people different in their needs...
Yesterday I spent three hours to listen to Dr. Joel Wallach. 1
I think I have spent, to date, about a hundred hours listening to him. Why so much? He talks too fast, and he isn't saying the things to be understood, but to impress... In that he is a typical doctor: big ego... holding his cards close to his chest.
One of the most educational experiences is to listen in to Dr Wallach's radio show.
It's on youtube. But before you rush, let me tell you what to listen for.
People ask about a disease. A problem. Although Dr. Wallach's approach is not disease+fixing directed, he needed to learn how to ask questions that drive up the actual nutritional deficiency issues, so he can address the underlying deficiency, instead of providing a fix that makes no difference.
One question he repeatedly asks and a question that seems totally irrelevant, is this: Was there childhood rash? 1He also asks, repeatedly about childhood asthma.
I have been pondering these two questions, and I finally cracked the mystery with regards to one of them: the rash, and I am starting to see the relevance of asthma.
I didn't put this quote first, because I agree with it. In fact, exactly the opposite is true. All the light that is coming to you is lurking in the shadow, just waiting for you to find it... but, human nature, knee jerk reactions rob you of your birth right... And you end up living an empty life with no light... Ooops... This is what this article is designed to remedy.
