Some days I just can’t write. I don’t want to write.
Some days it doesn’t make any sense to me to write. It feels like I have done all I will ever do, and it hasn’t made a difference.
One of the main stumbling block for me to being able to make a difference for you, is how you listen.
You listen with a certain economy. You want to make sure that what you hear is relevant, what you hear is true, what you hear is worth listening to.
How do you make the decision what to FOCUS on?
You go to the only place you have: your mind.
The mind is a storage facility. I contains all the things you have put, consciously or unconsciously, into it. Continue reading “Learning to learn… how you learn makes all the difference… What is the theta state of mind?”
What is the difference between an opinion and an assessment, an observation, a statement, a theory, a hypothesis?
Many people use one word for many different things…
I have this “friend” who climbs the same steps I climb, except that he climbs it seven times each time, I climb it once or twice. He is a little younger than me.
I am fond of him: he is one of the handful of people I regularly talk to, eye to eye.
I often walk with him as he walks home: I guess I am hungry for human companionship: 10-20 minutes at a clip. Continue reading “Opinion? How should you hear what someone says?”
Did you know that if you say: I need healing, what you are saying is that you are sick?
This includes inner healing, faith healing, etc…
And when you start from something wrong… like “I am sick”, you are on your way to create a context that is misery every step of the way.
If I needed to define what negativity is, it’s that “what is is wrong, and it needs to be fixed.”
Yesterday I was leading my Theta State training webinar, and I felt horrible. Partially, because I wasn’t feeling well myself. Partially because my students didn’t feel well. And yet partially because one of my students wrote to me, and I needed to feel their feelings stronger than they felt them… because I am an empath.

If you want the good life, you’ll need to learn some stuff, and unlearn some stuff… but most importantly you’ll have to learn how to and how not to… Remember the how? How you do anything is how you do everything… it is the approach, the attitude, the beingness.
There are a great many ways you can remain unaccomplished, and left behind in life.
Almost as many ways as many people. This is the Anna Karenina Principle.
As with everything, the strait and narrow works.
Most people don’t know that what keeps them off the strait and narrow is ideas they invented, made up, and now consider the truth.
One such idea is that unless you can jump tall buildings in one leap, you should just think about it, grieve about it, and do nothing.

Some days I have nothing to say. It doesn’t feel like there is anything to say that needs to be said.
Some people never have anything to say and they talk all the time. Others think that they have to first formulate it in their heads to say it, and it never comes together.
Professional thinkers, writers know that “it is hard to be silently brilliant. Lots of thoughts occur wen you open your mouth.”
Thinking is a lot like digging for gold. Someone or something has to hold the dirt, or you can’t get beneath it.
Continue reading “It’s hard to be silently brilliant. Lots of thoughts occur when you open your mouth.”
What is everyday arrogance? It is simple, and so everywhere, all the time, that it is invisible.
You see something. You hear something. And you know what it means.
That meaning that you know, and you know that you know it is everyday arrogance.
The fact that you know what is your job, how people are, what was the question, where you need to look, what is missing: without looking, is everyday arrogance. Already knowing…

Activators produce permanent change once they are established… What’s in the way?
In several tests, comparing comprehension and the ability to recall and use the information after reading a book, people performed much better when they read the book with the PhotoReading method than when they read it “normally.” The retention, the length of time that the knowledge is available was also multiple of the “normal” reading length.
The tests compare the same person, (as opposed to groups) so the base knowledge, the vocabulary, and interests, (which are fundamentally influencing the results,) are the same in the comparison. Person A, normal reading, vs. person A PhotoReading, got it? If you compared my results with yours, the comparison would not be valid, because we have a different level of knowledge and vocabulary, and interests.
So the comparison is comparing comprehension between two states:
- you have a chance to read every word with your conscious mind, look up words that you don’t know, re-read paragraphs that you don’t understand completely, ponder, etc. You can read, at the rate of about 30 pages an hour, and it will take as long as it takes.
- in an altered state of mind, with eyes fuzzy and focused behind the pages so you cannot actually see what’s on the page, at a rate of 1 page a second… a normal book takes a few minutes to read this way.
Why would it be so? After all it doesn’t make sense, does it?
