This article is a stream of consciousness... Beware, it is like poetry... you have to feel it, you can't explain it.
Cultural memes, media bias, tell us that change is fast and dramatic.
So when you consider your own change, that is what you are planning for, or that is what you resist.Even if not changing means staying at a place where you don't enjoy being. But of the two bad things: dramatic change or staying miserable, staying miserable is still more attractive, because at least you know that place.
But cultural memes, media bias, are lies.
Actually, all memes are lies. It was, maybe, someone's truth, but it is not THE TRUTH.
Only physical laws are THE TRUTH... Continue reading "Can you change? Will you be able to change, even if you never could?"
I used to lead introductions to the Landmark Forum.
There is a part in the introduction where you attempt to distinguish for people that most of what's knowable for a human: you don't know. Moreover: you don't know what you don't know.
Then you ask a simple question: Can you give me an example of what you don't know that you don't know?

How everything you know, everything you ever learned from others, everything is being taught makes you miserable, and unable to become an Expanding Human Being
I woke up this morning with crystal clear upsight: if you have a because then you are wretched or you are heading to being wretched.
In the book, Snow Crash, there are two main characters, Hiro and Y.T.
They win the war that is waged against humanity.
Hiro is a hacker, and a master sword fighter. He fights to win the affections of a girl.
Y.T. fights because what else is there to do.

What is choice, really? Do you ever choose? Probably not.
Choice: Selecting freely, AFTER consideration
I think, at some point in our lives we decide whether we want to be good or bad.
I decided twice. The first time I decided that somebody had to pay for my misery... and the only way to have them pay, whether they were guilty or not, is to be bad.
Then, when I learned the art and power of taking responsibility, of pulling the power to myself, I made a new decision, I decided to be on the side of good.

I have a Landmark Education friend. In Landmark you invent a new possibility for yourself and your life as often as daily... Possibility used to fix your wretched life... in spite of the fact that possibility does none of that.
I may talk about this in another article, but in this one, I'd like to share my educated take on LOVE... and some other topics...
This friend has been calling me all week. He invented loving people. Suddenly he is calling me. And gushing... about love, loving me, blah blah blah.

When an area of life isn't working or isn't working as well as you'd like it to, there is something that you don't know.
Obviously, if this is true, then it's true about every area of life... money, your health, your spirituality, your relationships, becoming a person you can like.
But how do you find out what it is that you don't know... that if you knew that it would make a difference?
That is the question.
Many of those answers are on my blog but you have been only scanning... which means you are only interested in what you already know. Your life stays the same, and I am wasting my life, wasting my breath.
One of the major things that you don't know is that you don't pay attention...

Whenever you feel that you are on the side of good, the side of noble, the likelihood that you are looking at the world through a narrow cone of vision, and therefore what you say is moronic, is near 100%.
Why is that? Because you are hearing everything through a socially defined, religious mostly, narrow opening in the mind... You'll miss most of what is being said, and it doesn't even occur to you... you are oblivious to that.
You won't make any effort to look at how you are looking, look at the angle of the cone you are looking at, look at the filter... ask additional questions... no, you won't do that.
Why? Because your mind says that you got the whole issue handled.
Continue reading "Good, noble, high-minded… are they the source of high vibration or moronic views?"
This article will upset many. Just please know, that if you are getting upset, it is indicating that your vibration is very low, and the anger is a smoke screen to avoid seeing it, and avoid being seen as such. As a pet owner, you are, probably, priding yourself of giving life to a pet, but the reality is much more sinister than that.
Consciousness is going to cost you something... a delusion? An illusion? Being asleep and oblivious? We shall see.
Another reason it is important for some of you to read is this: if you want to become and Expanding Human Being, if you want to raise your vibration, then you need to be effective. In order to become effective, you need to act on what's real, on what's so, instead of action on some delusion, some fantasy... like Don Quixote.

Summary: In this article I examine different teaching styles in the area of spirituality, consciousness and transformation, and I explain why I teach the way I teach.
I got an email from a student of mine yesterday. I quote the whole letter in the footnotes...
I have been obsessing over it for the past hour or so: it feels hurtful, it feels like she says that I am wrong to teach the way I teach.
Her argument that Scientology teaches the way she suggests that I teach sounds really compelling, after all they got her to a respectable low vibration of 130... with a lot of what she says they did well. This sentence was tongue in cheek, if you haven't noticed. 130 is misery.
Her vibration is 200 now. Not very high, but she got herself off the street level hustle and bustle...
