Actually, I continued to participate in Landmark after the incident I'll tell you about... but NEVER intended to contribute any more. Or not really. I was participating from hurt... knowing that what was broken cannot be fixed.
18 years ago, as I was coaching someone, it became clear to me that there are this four core invisibles, that are underneath every issue, every
distinction, every weird, unethical, unsavory action a human being makes. Continue reading "The four core default contexts… or Why I stopped participating in Landmark Education?"

Parents want to help, but instead they push you deeper into the bull's ear.
The expression, came from a student's father, you are in the bull's ear, is a great distinction. It is not American, and because it is alien sounding, almost nonsensical, it can wake you up.

Your behavior is always consistent with what you see.
And what you see depends 100% of your available capacities.
You don't even look... because you know what is there... you know there is nothing to see.
The difference between a blind person and you is that the blind person knows she cannot see.
Why can't you see? For two reasons:

This article is about the inner workings of a human... that if you get it wrong, the price you pay for the error is your life.
Is a human like a assembled faucet? When it drips you have to replace the whole thing?
I energize my water in a 5 gallon (20 liter) plastic containers with a spigot.
The spigot is replaceable, but I am not strong enough to unscrew it. I have the replacement spigot... I bought it a year ago, but is still sitting on my kitchen counter. I still need to be mindful that the old spigot, which is just another word for water tap... still drips.

I help people become the person who can have what they want to have. Will I be able to help you?
This is really the bottom line promise I have for you. But like every promise, it is conditional. Conditional on you... on you being teachable.

One of the most important things one can learn from the 67 steps is this: the truth is not within. It takes a sea of knowledge to even start to make out the outlines of the truth... And that knowledge needs to be learned... We live in a world of uneducated, ignorant fools... almost no one is an exception.
That doesn't mean the truth is without either.

How I use the energy that I download during the Days of Power
After I moved out of my parents' home, I met this guy who became my boy friend. My first boy friend.
He was a philosophy student, son of a well known philosopher.
I didn't understand a word they were talking. When I typed up his thesis I bastardized some of the words, because I had no idea they weren't typos. They didn't look like, they weren't regular words.
Here I am 46 years later, and if you asked me what profession I have, I would have to tell you that I am closest to being a philosopher. Boggles

It seems that we, humans, never look at anything long enough, or awake enough, to actually see the forest for the trees.
What do I mean?
I mean that certain things can only be seen if looked at long enough.
The cat can't recognize anything stationary, unless it stares at it long enough. And honestly, neither can you. Or me.
But you, with your big brain, and arrogance, you think you saw all you needed to see, and it is how come you use only a small fragment of the information available to you. You don't even look! You don't listen! You don't pay attention to your senses.
You live in your head...

Humanity is infected with memes. The infection accelerated when the internet began, and is now almost 100% with smartphones in every hand. But some people didn't get infected. What is their secret?
OK, let's start at the beginning.
What is a meme?
What is the mechanism of a meme?
What does a meme do?
So, what is a meme?

OK, I am going to clarify something that myself don't quite know how it works, and why it works that way.
So it may come out incomprehensible, botched up, and useless. But, in my view, it is worth to try...
Note: if you only read one example, make it #5!
OK, the issue: one of the measurements is to what degree your life is about you and your life... the words I use I borrowed from someone else... and the words are "to what degree you think of yourself"... as a measure of humility i.e. how much room you have to learn and grow, how much room you have for the world, for work, for life... for others.
