Your vibration, your creativity, your truth value all depends on your cone of vision... But until you see that you have a narrow cone of vision, that you look at things with narrow cone of vision, or a narrow filter, you won't want to make it wider.
Wide cone of vision means inclusive... narrow cone of vision is exclusive... exclusive of areas that you KNOW don't matter, don't belong, or you don't like them. Exclusive because you KNOW the answer...
The most exciting insights first show up in the corner of your eyes... Which means they are literally outside of your cone of vision.
I woke up disgruntled... almost ready to go into devastation (which is my "home page") but it all changed as I sat down and began to write. What was going to be a rant, became a celebration.
I guess I wasn't stuck with or invested in resisting being someone who rants when I feel beaten, or slighted, or hurt... It seems that I accepted, embraced, and it got out of my face... All unconscious competence, by the way. I didn't have to sit around and analyze it... it just happened. ...and I could look and see the whole picture... as much as I can see from it.
This is exactly what I teach in the Playground... this is the goal: unconscious competence in getting unstuck, and being able to see the whole reality, with all its beauty and all its ugliness.
Go beyond where you normally stop... But where? How? Show me the path...
I think that most, or at least, many children are born with a much higher potential than what they will actually live out.
It's been that way from the beginning of time. Some of these children, like myself, are allowed to grow like a weed. Attention, the attention of the lesser ability adults that try to pass on their world view destroys the potential of these children.
It is said that we live in special times.
That nowadays more children than ever before are born with some additional strands of DNA...
That children retain their ability to see the invisible, hear the invisible, feel the invisible.
I don't think this is the case. I think that in every age people were born closer to what could be considered "the next evolution" but got reduced back to "normal" by their loving parents, by their caring teachers, or by a hostile society that doesn't tolerate being different.
I came to my computer this morning not having an idea what article to write.
So I started to watch a few videos on youtube I lined up, after I saw that one of my students learned "precession" from one of the videos I published, while it went way over my head.
Time to recap...
So I watched the video, and muscle tested. It tested "not true" for me. One of my favorite people, (an evolutionary event in humanity's history, according to Buckminster Fuller...) Marshall Thurber. Zero truth value. Wow... let me watch a few more Marshall Thurber videos...
So I did. It's about 8 am now, and I have been at it for almost three hours.
Lots of questions are coming up... Is it possible to be happy, to have ikigai, purpose, and joy if you live in your imagination?
What is the main difference between animals and homo sapiens?
The only differences I can see are
1. homo sapiens (modern humans) live in the mind... thinking it's reality
2. homo sapiens have conscience
3. homo sapiens live like anything different from what they want is wrong.
4. homo sapiens have usury relationships, win-lose, zero sum.
I have written a lot of articles about living in the mind, and have courses to help you spend at least some of your time outside of the mind that is like a cave...
Most everything you read on the internet, in books, on youtube, is b.s. Not true... a lie, or not the whole truth.
What do I mean by b.s.? I simply mean that they have a low truth value.
They can be a lie... misdirection, misleading, made up... etc. Not necessarily with a malicious intent... the speaker/writer is looking to say what they say in the mind, in memes, in books, in other people speaking, not in reality.
Unless it is your truth, experienced yourself, it is not truth. Truth repeated is a lie... Talking about flying isn't flying. Talking about sex isn't sex. Talking about integrity isn't integrity.
I bought a book today (Ikagai for business) on creating a purpose, both individually, and for a business.
I have just started reading it... I measured its truth value. It's 20%.
And then I had the idea of asking a different question I have been meaning to ask: How much of the missing 80% is something that the person doesn't say, cannot say, because he doesn't know? And it was high: 70%. And the remaining 10% is just simple untruth, mistake, wrong knowledge.
Then I got a report from one of my students/accountability partners. He says:
I spent some time pondering. I saw the value and the importance of seeing things for myself, taking time to gather my own evidence to support views, to make it my own. To keep moving towards clarity. Otherwise, I'm just repeating memes, i.e. lying. The difference between assessment and assertion
My heart smiled. He is getting it. His truth value is growing.
99% of the world repeats memes, Tree of Knowledge, that they have no personal evidence for, experience about, they just words that maybe even the writer or the speaker is just repeating. Utterances. But they are repeating "truth"... and in their mouths the truth becomes a lie.
