I got lucky today. I got to see something I haven't seen in a long time.
It's been many years that I "shared" with anyone.
Sharing is a Landmark Education distinction: you talk about some gain in your life, in a particular way, and if you did it well, the other person gets a tiny bit more than just a whiff of what you are "sharing"; they get a taste of it. A taste of your gain...As if you've given them a bite of your triple chocolate fudge cake... lol.
We were both early for the exercise class, and she was really relieved that she wasn't going to be the only student...
Warning: this is a rant... don't read it if you want to remain hopeful
I had a few insights today, one of them suddenly answers a question I didn't ask before.
The question I didn't ask was: how come the people with nothing of real value to say occupy the top 1% of the internet?
This is what happened? I saw an email that offered a list of 241 top influencers on the internet. I looked at the list, and there was not one person who had anything to say that could make the world a better place for humanity.
Instead, the top 241 influencers are marketers.
Marketing is like being a politician. You peddle yourself and you peddle it through taking power over people.
In the past four months that I have been able to turn on individual capacities for people, I have received no request to turn on trust.
Why is that?
After all people, rightly, asked me for self-trust. But self-trust won't be enough.
So what can be the current world view with regards to trust, that trust doesn't come up as number one to turn on.
Because, whether you know it or not, without trust there is no winning. Without trust there is no flow. Without trust there is no fulfillment.
When I measured some winners in life, for whom it took years to hone their skills with which they won, money, recognition, admiration... trust was there, fully open.
As you probably already know, I use playing Freecell as my laboratory. It is much the way Richard Dawkins, The Selfish Gene author used the computer simulation "Prisoner's Dilemma"... very enlightening for me.
