Do you spend time with yourself? Or are you trying to be busy all the time? What does that say about you?

Your soul, your spirit, knows right from wrong

If it only had an opportunity to talk to you, to be heard, you'd probably consider stopping doing the wrongs that you do, if only to have peace inside, to have less tension, to have more joy.

The two selves we all have are twins separated at birth... one grows according to DNA, the other according to outside influences... nature vs. nurture.

The further "nurture" makes the one twin (self) go, the worse the relationship becomes, the more, whenever they get to see each other, the one hates the other. Which one is doing the hating, you ask?

We all have multiple personalities… How does your delusional self impact your life?

We all have at least two distinct and recognizable selves that we switch back and forth between.

In this article we'll look at intelligence, but we could also look at the character, the attitude, the moral fortitude of the selves... but because I look at the world through the frame of smart and stupid, and only secondarily through loyal/disloyal, I'll write this article on the intelligence level of your two selves.

Now, let me start with a statement: there is nothing wrong with being stupid. As long as you know and embrace that you are stupid. Continue reading "We all have multiple personalities… How does your delusional self impact your life?"

I want to be like the Soup Nazi

Why am I such a Nazi when it comes to who I am willing to work with?

Remember the soup Nazi? Who ran his soup takeout shop like a prison camp? And people lined up and waited patiently to be given soup... that was so good, and so hard to come by, they were willing to earn it... I want to be like the soup Nazi.

Like everyone, my energy is finite. I can't whip out extra at the drop of a hat... I am human. Continue reading "I want to be like the Soup Nazi"

Self-expression: what is the Self you are expressing? Updated

comfort-zone-paulo-zerbatoPeople throw around the words: self-expression, but I have never found a person who knows what it means... and if it means what THEY mean.

Most people look how you express yourself not what it is you express...

Meaning: I am letting my hair down... I am loud and obnoxious, I am funny, I am demanding... these are all how expressions.

This article is about "what" not "how"...

What is the Self you express with everything... your life, your job, your relationships, with your music, poetry, and your life.

There are two selves, and the reason life doesn't work for most of us is because the two selves are not connected in any way.

  • Self 1: your genes, your desire to survive and procreate.
  • Self 2: your human desire to be higher than just your genes... to live your higher self.

Self in the expression of the higher self, is the evolved self. The self Shakespeare means: To thine own self be true.

No man is an island. You need others if you want to succeed… How to get people on your team

One of my students said to me: "you are like a scientist. And yet so much of your work lies in the realm of the not easily measured."

I have always had a difficulty answering the question: What do you do?

Defining what you do is important. To whom? To you: if you want support. Unless THEY know what you do, they don't know if they are aligned with what you do or not...

It is a need and a must to "meet the expectation of others". It is a survival need. You can't skip it.

Depending on what stage of personal evolution you are, it may be a lot more important to you than meeting your own expectation.

The real reason why you are not happy, not fulfilled, not peaceful… and how to turn it around, maybe

contingent-happinessIf you found out that all the wrong turns, mistakes you made in your life... probably thousands, you made them because you didn't see what there was to see.

A number of years ago, one leader in Landmark Education said: Most people either don't sign up or quit as soon as they see it.

See what? You ask...

See that the solution to the issues of their lives, the decisions that would have taken them to success were there, but they didn't see them.

I didn't see them, and you didn't see them.

What is your self-image? Are self-image questions, personality profiles, Kolbe test give you a correct answer?

There is a fundamental built-in error in tests that involve answering questions about ourselves.

I have found that personality tests that rely on your knowing yourself and to predict what you would do in certain situations, are profoundly flawed. 1

I say this after working with thousands of people, one-on-one, observing them, feeling them (I am an empath) and comparing who and how they are compared to what they say about themselves.

The gap is significant between the two. Continue reading "What is your self-image? Are self-image questions, personality profiles, Kolbe test give you a correct answer?"

Unless you like yourself, you won’t like your life either…

love-yourself-like-your-life-depends-on-it-because-it-does-quote-1Unless you like yourself, unless you feel good about yourself, you won't like your life either.

Happiness is liking yourself and your life.

Not the Smokescreen...

What the smoke screen you set up hides about you... the nasty stuff... or how to learn to like yourself

There is a very important knowledge that seems to be missing for people:

Unless you like yourself, unless you feel good about yourself, you won't like your life either.

And it is not so easy to like yourself, to feel good about yourself. Why?

Because you, internally, are well aware of the dual nature you have, and it's disturbing.

Should you strive for leaving a legacy?

footprint in the sand

This is continuing the theme I started in my last post, looking at your life and priorities. This is a politically incorrect article... The footnotes are really important in this article, don't miss them.

Let's take a near posthumous look at your life... so you can see what was important, and do it while you still have time.

If you are afraid of death: this is especially for you. 1

Someone who lives fully and does what is important to them, isn't afraid of death. They weren't afraid of life, they aren't afraid of death. That doesn't mean they want to die... they are just not driven to panic by the sight of an life that never happened.

Yesterday I spoke about wanting to get my work out... but upon further examination, I realized that I fell for the cultural, societal mumbo jumbo, that is designed to have you be unfulfilled, and lose your self interest.

What am I talking about?

About legacy... What is your legacy? Can you feel the cold hands of dread squeezing your heart?

How you have trained yourself to be a self-hating, powerless puppet

La_confessioneConsciousness, Source, is using me and my life, and makes it my work to map out the human condition.

It's been consciously so for about five years now.

When something, a sneaky undertow could not be seen on other people, I had to go through the experience to see it.

Without me being cheerfully game, I could say that it is the worst part of my life.

But, remember, the purpose I have invented for my life is to go to the edge, live there a bit, and come back sharing what I saw. And share it in a way that others can benefit from it.
