Why and how I watch Netflix? How my Netflix diet is not binging?

Like with any diet, both the what and the how are crucially important.

I'll show you later in this article, that even if you eat the right things, if you eat wrongly, the how, you won't feel good... you won't get well. You won't be present to life.

And so it is with your Netflix diet as well.

Here is how I watch Netflix...

I watch only stuff that will teach me the skills by pointing me to the capacities I could distinguish and then practice. I even take notes!

Whenever I see something noteworthy, I stop and contemplate it for minutes... long minutes. I consider Netflix my mentor... Continue reading "Why and how I watch Netflix? How my Netflix diet is not binging?"

Are you teachable?

you must become teachableI 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. Continue reading "Are you teachable?"

Remember: How I learned Hebrew and how it can help you to become the new human being in no time flat

remember Hebrew: you used to know it. Remember who you are: you used to know it.

Motto: Mentor: Someone whose hindsight can become your foresight

Remember who you are

In 1981 I got a letter from a man from Israel. He claimed to be a second cousin on my father's side to me. He was coming to an educational conference in Hungary. He came with his wife.

We spent time together, they were staying with me, in my one-bedroom high-rise apartment in Budapest. He visited with every member of my family, and witnessed their contempt for me first hand.

He promised to be family to me if I decided to go to Israel.

One year later I packed a suitcase and left Hungary. illegally. It was winter in Hungary when I left, in fact it was below 15 minus, very cold. It was about 80 degrees in Israel when I arrived, penniless. I knew one word in Hebrew: shalom.

It’s hard to be silently brilliant. Lots of thoughts occur when you open your mouth.

Some people never have anything to say and they talk all the time. Others think that they have to first formulate it in their heads to say it, and it never comes together.

Professional thinkers, writers know that "it is hard to be silently brilliant. Lots of thoughts occur wen you open your mouth."

Thinking is a lot like digging for gold. Someone or something has to hold the dirt, or you can't get beneath it.

What’s the difference between a DNA activation and self-control? Self-improvement, self-development?

christmas-tree-of-our-geneticsI said in the last article and I say it here again:

We are all born with a full "Christmas tree" loaded with ornaments i.e. genes. Some of those ornaments light up, some of those don't.

The capacities that those dark ornaments show as dormant are patience, compassion, caring, seeing the big picture, intelligence, focus... as you see, these are the prized qualities of winners.

And they are dormant on your tree of genes, the Christmas Tree.

I have found that strong energies that create a whole new terrain to play on, plus consistent small actions using those capacities create a DNA activation, an epigenetic shift where you don't have to try to be patient, you just are.

This is what I noticed this morning:

I have lived in this apartment for 12 years now. It is walking distance from a Catholic church, that insists on doing 15 minute long music twice a day, at noon and at 6 pm.
