If you didn’t ask… “Know Enough For what?!” then you can consider that you are trapped, at the moment, by the question in the title.
That was the purpose of the title, by the way. To trap you.
While you read your article, to get the most out of it, allow yourself to find yourself in my experience, instead of agree or not agree… OK?
Every person with a mind (that is every person alive!) moves back and forth on a continuum (scale) of knowing enough or not knowing enough… Some days you feel you know everything, on others you feel you know nothing. Continue reading “Do you know enough?”
Is there a lazy way to heaven? Will my activators take you there?
First we must agree on what we’ll call lazy…
At the Budapest University of Technology I had a Math professor who started his first class asking who was the laziest person in the class. I raised my hand, in spite of the fact that you could have argued that I was the most diligent, the most industrious person you have ever known. But I considered myself lazy, and so I raised my hand.
He looked up through his inch-thick spectacles and said: ‘You’ll be the best in this class…’ and he was right. I was the best, but why? I surely could not be the smartest?
He explained that a lazy person looks before he leaps. A lazy person looks at the whole process they consider doing on paper and evaluate it ahead of time. Much like a chess master seeing how the game unfolds. 1watch the full movie here
In one of the most memorable exercises of all time, the leader asks a person to volunteer. The person needs to be a “certifiable” klutz, aka clumsy person.
Inadvertently the person always turns out to be a woman with a Ph.D.
In the first part of the exercise or demonstration, the leader throws a tennis ball to the volunteer which she either catches by trying too hard, or trying too hard and yet dropping the ball.
Everyone can see that she is a klutz.
After a while the leader says that they are going to play a different game. This time the volunteer doesn’t have to catch the ball. Instead they need to observe the ball and tell the leader which way the ball was spinning. To make the spin more visible, the leader takes out a think marker and blackens the seams of the tennis ball.
The volunteer agrees. The first ball falls on the podium while she is showing with her fingers which way the ball was spinning. The second ball falls on the podium and rolls into the corner. The volunteer walks there, picks it up, and throws it back to the leader.
The third ball is thrown, but the volunteer reaches for it with one hand, throws it back to the leader and with her hands now free, shows the leader which way the ball was spinning.
The fourth ball comes more forcefully. The volunteer reaches out with one hand, catches it, throws it back to the leader, and demonstrates which way the ball was spinning.
The fifth ball comes fast and far, but the volunteer steps in its direction, catches is with one hand and throws it back.
The audience that was holding their breath in this second part of the exercise starts to clap. The volunteer looks and doesn’t understand what is the cause for clapping.
She never realized she caught the ball, there was no sign of clumsiness at all.
What happened? The leader explains that the world shifted from being incompetent in the arena of catching balls into the arena of competence being able to see the spin of the ball.
In the arena of competence everything is approached with competence.
I experienced this exact phenomenon this morning.
For the past 6 weeks me, my websites, and my place have been under siege. I will not go into detail: I’ll just talk about the attack on the Energy Water.
