..that is one of the disappointing things you learn when you do work with me. I won't feed you baloney like "you are a spiritual being having a human experience..." and other garden variety horse manure.
The other half-sentence is just as disappointing: "you can't get out of this life alive..."
These two half-sentences address 70% of the popular delusions of humanity.
This article is based on Wallace D. Wattles' famous third book, The Science Of Being Great and, of course, what I have to say about the topic.
We all want to be great... or at least be considered great, and we all fall short... because we are NOT great, not great at all. The gap between what we hope and what we produce keeps us, overtly or covertly miserable and self-hating.
By being great Wallace D. Wattles means someone who tunes in to All-Knowledge AND acts in a Certain Way. Neither of it is typical... neither of it is practiced by the majority, although all consider it a standard, an ideal... for others.
This chapter establishes the grounds from which Wattles builds his theory: Human being is miserable unless he is growing. Miserable, unless he is advancing. By nature...
I am definitely an example of being able to tune into the All-Knowledge, and am a student of acting in a Certain Way. I am not there much of the time... maybe not even 80%. But the quality of my life is incomparable with what it was before I started practicing the Certain Way.
Read and heed. You'll know if you are ready to hear this or not. How will you know? This will sound like good news if you are ready. And boring or not for you, if you are not. Or worse than that: you'll think of all the people for whom this should be a must, but not you... (Especially if your soul correction is "Removing The Dark Side".
Your vocabulary, the number and the kind of words you use, is a dead giveaway of the level of your spiritual evolution... simply put your vibrational frequency. If I could not measure your spiritual/consciousness level accurately other ways, I would use your vocabulary number to tell you what is your spiritual vibration, what is your level of consciousness.
A big winter storm is moving across America (I hear Europe isn't doing better) and people are holding their breaths... Waiting for Godot 1 or waiting for death... hoping...
How you do anything is how you do everything. If a snow storm makes you hold your breath, how do you think you are when you are trying to face yourself? Hold your breath... of course. You cannot face the tiger... because you don't like to feel bad... anything bad.
The-powers-that-be teach you to keep your face to the light and avoid the darkness surrounding it. It eventually evolved to a slogan: Think Positive.
Result: a sissy humanity that is drowning in misery.
There are two kinds of lights: one light is like the Sun, life-giving and one light is like a fluorescent light or a candle... lets you see around you, but that's it. It won't give you satisfaction, it won't give you anything... it's small. Continue reading "Bloodless, tearless transformation"
How you do anything is how you do everything. I can spend five minutes with you and can tell your chances for success, for love, for money... even without measuring your vibration. Just by observing you...
You can also watch your behavior. Observe it when you can, observe it when I ask you to.
Is it worth it? Is it worth the bother, the effort, the work? Will it get me finally what I want?
One of the reasons people don't like to try new things is because they cannot judge whether they can do it or not. Whether it will be easy or not. Whether it will be pleasant and enjoyable or not.
How come? Why is it so difficult? Life is complex, and most of us have no tolerance for complexity. Complexity, ambivalence, ambiguity are normal, but the capacity to hold them becomes available to you in only at a certain brain development age... If you got stuck in young child brain development, that is most people, you have never developed the capacity.
Can you develop this capacity now? Of course you can. What is preventing you from doing it? Your low TLB number... you are a Twitchy Little Bastard... and you can't deal with complexity, confusion, or looking long enough to actually see something.
Some of my students, when they learned about my habit of looking long and more than just once... as a way to deal with my dyslexia, have started to practice the same... and their ability to hold controversy and ambivalence has increased... because of that practice. But if you fancy yourself smart, quick, etc. Looking long and hard is going to be difficult, because your precious "I" will tell you that only stupid people look long and hard.
