Some insights on health, and why things are the way they are, and why are people different in their needs...
Yesterday I spent three hours to listen to Dr. Joel Wallach. 1
I think I have spent, to date, about a hundred hours listening to him. Why so much? He talks too fast, and he isn't saying the things to be understood, but to impress... In that he is a typical doctor: big ego... holding his cards close to his chest.
Spirituality, finding your way, finding your self, the path to living a life worth living use different tools from science, schools, the mind, and ordinary thinking.
Not just different tools, but tools used differently.
If you haven't found what you are seeking... if your seeking has taken you on a wild goose chase only to find nothing of value for yourself... then you owe it to yourself to learn to use the tools and to use them in new ways.
When your life is about you... when your life is about others... when your life is about ideas.. these are different sizes of a life you can have. In this article we'll examine the effects of these levels on your peace of mind, level of fulfillment, the quality of your life.
We'll start with me... and my experience.
In 1988 January 1, around 3 minutes after the ball dropped on Times Square, I declared something that ultimately turned my life around.
The Landmark Education shortcut that doesn't work:
"the possibility I declare for myself and my life"
"the possibility I invent for myself and my life" 1 you are taught in Landmark Education. Declaration is a verbal way to speak something into being... being... not feeling, not action, but being. But it doesn't work, unfortunately. Why? Let's find out...
The problem with Landmark Education
Landmark Education is the watered down brainchild of Werner Erhard.
I started participating when Werner was still part of it. He said things it's taken me 30 years to get, but he said it. He himself was struggling with them.
Werner had 20 being capacities, which means that most of what he ever said came from thinking. Yet, 20 capacities of being is rich. In comparison, a good Landmark Forum Leader has 10 being capacities.
A few of my readers use this blog to snap out of their funk. I used Ray Williams' Monday Morning Memo the same way... I also use Rob Brezsny's weekly horoscope the same way. My Sunday call with a friend mostly works out that way too...
We all need something that returns us to sanity, to coherence, and to get aware, again, what is important in life.
This article was especially potent for me this morning.
