Know thyself is what is one of the 147 maxims (a short, pithy statement expressing a general truth or rule of conduct. Not the same as a principle, but there are many overlaps... Most of these maxims are virtues. My favorites are "Know what you have learned" and "Be/Know yourself", because they are maybe the most important. Do yourself a favor, and read them, and ponder.) inscribed in Delphi...
In fact, it is a principle.
A principle is something to live by, something to get guidance from.
When we talk about principle driven life, any of those 147, and countless other principles will do your life justice.
When I look at people, when I observe them, their lives have no rhyme, no purpose...
A lot of why's are answered here... why you can't get well, why you are not happy, etc.
People are the highest value in the universe. Why? Because they are able to be all levels of values, the thinking mind (systemic), the extrinsic (create tools, cook food, provide pleasure), and the intrinsic.
You live, predominantly on one level, and value what is on that level most.
If you admire the butterfly, then you have low vibration... A butterfly person will not be enamored with a butterfly...
The "I don't like" "I don't want" list, seems to be a very reliable measure of the size of your world and thus your vibration. (You may call it your frequency, or your vibrational frequency... but what the words indicate isn't real... your vibration is better defined in this article.)
When you have low vibration (under 200), the size of your world is tiny, mostly about you, your person, how you feel, etc.
Here is an article that has truth in it, but not the whole truth. The article is a typical psychological take on a human condition... and is incomplete.
Here is an example of what a 7% truth value is, and what is missing to make it acceptable... and no, a 7% truth value is not acceptable.
I am going to attempt to add some of my own discoveries... to bring it up to a higher, hopefully much higher level of truth value...
First: read the article. I felt horrible reading it, because it made me feel bad about myself. Not many people consider me good company... so I definitely don't qualify to being the type of person everyone wants to know.
At the same time my fixed mindset is only 7%... so what's going on?
Juiced vs. Driven (Juiced here means: turned on, excited, alive)
The most difficult attitude to take on or even comprehend is "desire for the sake of sharing". The opposite of that is "desire for the self alone".
Why is it so hard? Because... I actually don't know...
I'll kick it around in this article, and let's say if I can say anything that resonates. With you.
Why wouldn't? Well, it hasn't. Not with you, and not with others.
If you are new to my articles: my self-assigned job is to ferret out, test out, experiment out what would take humans back to the evolutionary path they abandoned about 30 thousand years ago. They went deep into the current level of "homo sapiens" you could also call: the man who lives in the cave of their mind.
The alternative was to become human being, but that hasn't happened, and cannot happen through the mind.
When you are a value recognizer, you see value, for you, everywhere.
Seeing value, recognizing value, is a very high vibration capacity, and I literally don't know anyone who has it fully open... meaning the DNA capacity.
It's Tuesday, and I had no idea what to write about today. The way it was looking, life was going to be mundane, maybe even boring today...
But I opened my horoscope from Rob Brezsny, and it all changed when I read it. It brought back yesterday, and the whole past month.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): How sexy is it possible for you to be? I'm referring to authentic soul-stirring sexiness, not the contrived, glitzy, counterfeit version. I'm alluding to the irresistible magnetism that wells up in you when you tap in to your core self and summon a reverent devotion to your life's mission. However sexy it is possible for you to be, Virgo, I suggest you unleash that magic in the coming weeks. It's the most reliable strategy for attracting the spiritual experiences and material resources and psychological support you need.
My declared purpose is: I work to raise the truth value of people's world view and consequently raise their vibration. This article is, seemingly, not about truth value and not about vibration... it is about your worth a damn factor and your happiness... Seemingly...
Here is a world view that is very frequent, and very deadly for your vibration, and for your inner world of happiness.
The world view of jumping. The world view of binary switch reality.
Yesterday I had a long call with one of my coaching clients.
As a rule, I don't have many marker feelings in a day.
A marker feeling is a feeling associated with a set of words... like "you are stupid" and then you feel bad.
Or "you are making a mistake" and you feel fear.
This morning I wanted to work on my presentation on tomorrow's webinar: the remarkable system of getting to a life worth living... or whatever i called it in the email...
So, as it is totally normal, not a single cell of mine wants to do that work. It's normal.
Doing something new, doing something public, upsets the ess... it's not comfortable... it is not what I normally do day in and day out.
Now, if the work were to write an article... none of this would happen. But the webinar format is different... I cannot pause and think between sentences like when I write an article. It has to flow... and there is a fear... A fear of mucking it up. A fear of losing some subscribers. A fear of losing face. A fear of looking bad.
