Want to be free of 80% of unhappiness?

I was on technical support for three hours this morning. Two delightful tech support people… and no results. The software that wasn’t working, kept on not working.

At some point after 3 hours, my virus protection software requested a machine startup. I restarted the PC, and guess what: the software started to work.

This used to be the case when I was still using Macintosh until some 14 years ago. Anything wrong repaired itself with a reboot.

Now, how is this connected to anything spiritual? Let me count the ways…

If you look at your life, or someone else’s life, life has been an almost uninterrupted story of…

Steal back your future

What do you carry that weighs you down so much that that you can never ascend?
Or what weight you carry so that you can’t climb the Tree of Life, until you put it down?

Have you noticed that making permanent changes, doing new things, doing things in a new way, going to places unfamiliar is difficult for you, near impossible?

Consider that you are dragging a persona with you. That persona is what makes the going so difficult, so encumbered…

What is the right attitude when being coached or being taught by a teacher?

… and by “right” attitude I mean the attitude that gets you what you wanted from life…

Most people don’t.

Why? My guess is an attitude issue… but the attitude issue is caused by something deeper.
I’ll get back to this…What’s underneath the attitude…
But for now let’s see what programs, teachers, coaches do or not do to weed out people who would not be the right match.

I did a training program twice when I was in Landmark Education. The introduction leaders program. Seven months bootcamp. Intense. Hard.

World View: are you trying to build a life on a foundation of misery?

If you ever decided that you wanted to live your life in a particular way, successful, joyful, productive, fulfilling, you would want to CHOOSE a world view, a world view that COULD create the perfect foundation for that type of life, the life of your choosing.

But you never decided… and you never chose. You have a worldview, or maybe a worldview has you…

World view is a particular interpretation of life, of creation, of power, of choice, of freedom. Of other people, of nature. Of what is important and what isn’t. Of what is agreed upon and what isn’t.

Depending on the world view, only certain actions and certain things can be present. It’s like a stage in a play: you can’t put there stuff that doesn’t belong. That doesn’t have a role… On the stage, if there is a gun there, you can be sure it will be used during the story. I read that somewhere about Chekhov’s plays…

You can’t fix being human

You can’t fix being human

..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.

When you internalize these truly, when you start to be energized by them then your vibration will jump 50 points or more.

Before a breakthrough you’ll have immense suffering

“There are people who take the heart out of you, and there are people who put it back,” wrote author Charles de Lint. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, your heart will encounter far more of the latter than the former types of people in 2020. There may be one wrangler who tries to take the heart out of you, but there will be an array of nurturers who will strive to keep the heart in you — as well as boosters and builders who will add even more heart.”

It’s been hard to be me.

Context is decisive. And yet 99% of humans cannot wrap their minds around the context.

Everyone says that, everyone gains hope from it… But few actually know what the heck they are talking about.

Most people want to create stuff, or love, or a thin body, or riches, a prosperous business without doing the work it takes.

They make collages. They talk in the mirror. They create mind-movies, blah blah blah.

Many go to energy practitioners or healers… because their creation method doesn’t work… they believe they have abundance blockages, or maybe energetic strings, or whatever people can dream up and sell on the bazaar of the interweb…

But few if any address the real issue.

You create your own reality with the context. Good reality, bad reality, you create both. Boring reality? yep… you create it with the context.

You don’t love yourself. You don’t respect yourself. How could you?

A little understood aspect of integrity that screws up your integrity…

Integrity is between you and you. There are things you do with other people, but integrity is an inside job… if you don’t like what you did, if you don’t think you did a good job, it doesn’t matter what other people think… you are not happy with yourself.

And so far so good, most anyone can get that… but the story doesn’t end here.

Sometimes you do everything you said you would do, you do it on time, you did it complete and thorough, and yet you are not happy with yourself.

What is the reason?

Can you trust yourself? No, not yet… You need a Paradigm Shift: Own what owns you

I get affirmation from wherever, when I am on the right path… here it goes: I just finished this article, and here is my Rob Brezsny horoscope…
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Burrow down as deep as you dare, Virgo. Give yourself pep talks as you descend toward the gritty core of every matter. Feel your way into the underground, where the roots meet the foundations. It’s time for you to explore the mysteries that are usually beneath your conscious awareness. You have a mandate to reacquaint yourself with where you came from and how you got to where you are now.
Make it yours… if you have the courage… So you can become free. The process is more intricate than Rob Brezsny indicates, but it is also more rewarding.

OK, onto the actual article…

I have this very interesting and troubling insight:
People want to learn to act from their inner authority without ever finding out the bad news about themselves:
…who they have been being, that “told” them to do all the things that made their lives not work, or not work as well as it could.

Principle guided life… OK… but what principles will make you happy?

When I wrote the article about racial, ancestral identity and its importance, I touched on something that is not valuable for most people… because I didn’t go deep enough and I didn’t accurately identify what it takes to be proud of who you are, where you belong.

I got on the phone with one of the people who was very unhappy about that article… I was eager to talk, because it is near impossible to go beyond the visible by yourself. It is a whole lot easier when you get input… because what is invisible to you can be visible for another.

The conversation was fruitful… And the insight to me was: it is not virtues, it is principles that form the basis of a happy life… I will elaborate…
