All you ever needed to know to live a full life is hidden under the visible…

I watched a ton of youtube clips this weekend, and some movies…

One could ask: why on Earth should I violate my own rules: no skimming.

But… here is a kicker: it is not what you do, it is how you do it. And what you do with what you did.

I am not a skimmer. I did not watch movies and videos to escape from myself.

Watching those videos was work.

Just like the 67 steps, your job is to cover the 360 degrees of life, and look under the hood. Under the obvious. Under the surface

Sadness. Tree of Life, Tree of Knowledge… more about what gives you what kind of life

I just exchanged emails with the author of the Feelings book, Gyozo Margoczi.

Gyozo means Winner, or Victor in Hungarian… someone who wins over something or someone.

My name: Sophie, means Wisdom.

Names can be taken two ways:

1. you are that
2. you need to become that

He wrote the books. Major accomplishment. Big win… mostly like a tree falling in a forest that didn’t make a sound because there was no one to hear it… until I came along.

Case study: How personhood is only possible if you understand the 13th floor dynamics

In my coaching I am seeing a phenomenon that can only be understood once you start mastering the 13th floor through the books, ground breaking new book “Feelings” by Margoczi, and the follow-up: “Words,” plus through getting to know your feelings… The Feelings webinars can help you get started in that.

Sidenote: the author of the book isn’t even willing to entertain the word: emotions. This should tell you something.
In the world of symbols, the level of words, most people use the words feeling and emotion interchangeably, but they are actually not even connected directly.

Feelings are a 13th floor phenomenon. They are as physical as anything, measurable, and make a lot of sense.
Emotions are a 15th floor phenomenon, and are entirely culturally defined. They are the marker feelings of words… and there is nothing that makes sense about them. Anything that is culturally defined is designed to confuse and enslave you. No kidding.

A look at feelings… going under the hood

I have been saying in every article now that the 13th floor is a dynamic system.

Why dynamic? Because the feelings have direction, content, opinion… and they interact, pull, push, stop you…

Moving, changing, pulsing, etc.

Humans are not simple machines, and yet: every complicated machine is made up of many simple machines… and so are you. The more you allow the machine to inform you, the more fulfilling, the smoother, the more enjoyable life becomes, with you in the driver’s seat.

You know I am corresponding with the creator of the books, Feelings and Words, Gyozo Margoczi.

In his last email, this morning, he made sure I push the dynamic nature of feelings. ((It’s weird to be on the other end of a “coaching” relationship… Being able to receive acknowledgement, gentle nudging, all superiority… ugh. But, of course, being able to write a book and being really high minded are not the same thing… lol. His vibration is 200… the threshold vibration, where one CAN take responsibility for who they are, how they are, how they occur… if they want to, or if they are prompted to do, but it doesn’t come naturally.

I bet if I asked him where he saw me on the vibrational scale, if his was 200, he would say mine was 190. This is how it is, human perception colored by ego.)) I am not a very experienced translator, and translating his Hungarian helped me to understand the material and the dynamic even deeper.

One of my students had an unexpected breakthrough. Breakthrough explained

Most breakthroughs go by as if they didn’t happen. Why? Because a breakthrough not understood doesn’t create a new level of operating for the person. They are sometimes viewed as magic, a miracle… divine interference, but not something that was caused by the person.

A breakthrough fully understood creates a whole new level of performance, whether it was an organization, a science, or a person that had it.

With that said, this is the purpose of this article: to create for her a new level of operation, a new level of performance, through understanding what happened.

She had been paralyzed for months. She wasn’t able to articulate the reason, she just wasn’t doing her work, and her numbers were plummeting. Vibration, number of capacities, etc.

Is what you are reading talking on the right level… to make a difference?

For the first time in who knows how long, how many years, I have nothing to write.

One could say “writer’s block”… but I would not know. I have never had that…

Except…

So I am looking. When I have nothing to say… and that is unusual, what happened that is also unusual?

Did you see how I formulated the question?

Your ticket to get out of anything, to innovate yourself out of a problem is the question. Or questions…

So that question did direct my attention to something I’ve been doing that is also unusual.

She came from her strength…

My friend from my youth, Panni, just turned 70 years old.

Her family, husband, two sons, made a video for her, interviewing friends. She lives in Budapest, where we graduated from Architecture School together, 46 years ago.

It was interesting to watch. I witnessed friendships for friendship sake, I witnessed Americans with no insight, only asking: when are you coming to the USA?

I witnessed gratitude. She moved from the suburbs to this big old building with many apartments. And promptly organized the neighbors into a community.

“If the mountain won’t come to you, you must go to the mountain”

One of my favorite quotes from an ad is from the Men’s Hair Club… where the owner says: “I’m not just the president of Hair Club for Men, I’m also a client!”

I would never want to do business with anyone who is not also a client of their own business…

And of course, I am a client of my own. Meaning: I learn from what I write… and I learn and test everything first, before I recommend it…

With that said: to date the two most valuable nuggets I got out of my participation in my 67 step coaching program are:

1. innovate your way out of the problem
2. add suspenders to your belt.

Scientists are trying to keep you on the 15th floor. Why? Because it is super easy to influence you on that level.

Suddenly I am noticing the many articles that try to access your emotions, the advertising, the movies, all to keep you stuck on the 15th floor of your being. ((

Some examples from today’s articles: The Scientists Who Control Your Brain’s ‘Buy’ Button
The “Untranslatable” Emotions You Never Knew You Had

))

Your emotions are moldable, like clay, and there is nothing that you can do about it… on that level. Because your emotions is the 15th floor, it is entirely controlled from the 13th (feelings) and the 14th floor (words).

Marketers, your church, your politicians are taking classes from the psychologists who get paid by your marketers, your church, and your politicians to do research on how you’ll react, predictably, to their input.
