Your Inner Authority that you COULD have but you don’t…

It snowed yesterday and last night. Everything is covered with two inches of snow, the trees that haven’t lost their leaves, the cars, the street, my deck that I can see from my computer.

This is not the first time snow comes this early. And for most people in Syracuse, where I live, it is a snooow issue… not good! not good! Time to move to Florida! lol.

The snow comes from Lake Ontario that is an hour North from here as the crow flies. Whenever it is mild first and then the wind turns to arctic… meaning coming from the North, snow comes with it.

Reality.

Nothing wrong: as long as reality works the way reality works, all is well… even if it snows on your parade, even if you hate removing the snow from your car, even if you haven’t taken your winter shoes out of storage.

Today’s solution is tomorrow’s bigger problem… if you are not connected to Consciousness

I have updated this post… clarified some things, so read it again…

Humans, YOU, want to fix things…

Fixing is forceful, and narrow cone of vision.

Fixing is low consciousness…
Today’s solution is tomorrow’s bigger problem.
Your identity, the things you are known for, your typical behavior have all been fixes… solution to some perceived problem and now you are like a puppet on a string… powerless, inauthentic, and incapable of being happy, peaceful, joyful, and fulfilled.

1. For example, as a kid, I experienced getting hurt because I trusted someone… so I decided to never ever ever ever trust anyone again… I became fiercely independent… in everything.

Do you talk too much? talk about what is important to you? and no one wants to hear it?

What’s going on?

Quite a few of my students and clients are in this predicament, I even found myself feeling starved for “companionship”… for someone to hear what I have to say.

What is this about?

The answer, the elegant answer comes from a movie, Shall We Dance? where Susan Sarandon hires a private detective to find out what her husband does every Thursday night, and why he is acting so different.

The private detective asks why Susan Sarandon’s character married this guy.

The answer is the answer to your question: “I wanted my life to be witnessed.”

Why can’t you learn, and how could you? The single most important factor…

Going from smart to intelligent…
In this article I am biting off more than I can chew… So it will probably make more sense to people who are in my programs, and will make sense once I learn how to speak/write it coherently.

What’s missing? Why are so many smart people who are less than successful?

This is going to be a series.

This part deals with learning… The brainstate conducive to learning…
Then, in coming parts, we’ll talk about why you can’t learn something, even though you are smart…
Why you can’t use something that you thought you learned or knew…
And what you can do so you can go from smart to intelligent.

Intelligence is the ability to get results with the knowledge you have… as opposed to smart: able to get a lot of knowledge…

I just finished the Learning how to learn course

Here are some observations and thoughts that will raise that course’s truth value to 60%. Without these, it is 30%. Not bad… but not very good either.

Important distinctions of the course: (there are more, but these are the most important barriers to learning.)
Focused state learning vs. fuzzy state learning
Like with everything, there are distinctions that are in the visible domain of reality, and distinctions that are invisible until they are distinguished…

In the visible domain, the difference is your brain’s attitude about the material, the brain’s approach.

In order to get into the focused state, the brain needs to first force itself to exclude everything else, so it narrows your cone of vision, your cone of hearing, it tries to ignore your back itching, your butt hurting on the chair… because it is HELLBENT to get what you are intending to get.

I used to get into this mode occasionally, especially when I saw a tutorial, a questionnaire to fill in, a quiz… fear.
Fear of making an ass of myself.
And it was, predictably, a self-fulfilling prophecy: in that focused state I could not get the question right (the context), so my answers were predictably wrong. I didn’t understand the tutorial… I got dumber than dumb. For a long time I really thought I was dumb.

I had a lot of punishments in my life.

At some point, since I started doing this work, and connecting to Source much of the day, this attitude towards questions and tutorials has gotten a whole lot better. It is still there… until I feel my feelings, feel the fear, and relax into it.
So what is there for people who cannot learn — despite their efforts to learn?
This is the question I had on my mind when I did some back and forth with one of my students who hasn’t been able to learn the foundation of the Playground course, despite her spending a lot of efforts to do so.

Our exchange ended with me saying “it took me years to get it… so there is no hurry”, and her answering “Oh dear!
Well, at least that lessens the fear of falling behind…”
Another one of the distinctions of the Learning how to learn course is “project

Raise Your Vibration: The Original Design

 If you’ve known me and my work, you know that I talk to something I call Source. I begged it for decades to allow me to do the work for it, and today I get all my knowledge from it.

Our conversations happen on many levels, feelings, premonitions, dreams, stuff showing up when I need to deal with it, and also through things that I initiate: muscle testing yes/no answers.

A few days ago I spent some time, not long, I ran out of intelligent questions. The question I wanted an answer to: who or what are you?

Source said it is physical, even though it has no particles, no shape, no volume, no… whatever would make it physical in my world. And it is sentient.

Human blindness, near sightedness, immediate gratification… and their relationship to your misery.

The famous story that teaches geometric vs. linear growth creates insights that disappear about as fast as your dreams after you wake up.

Homo Sapiens, even the ones who understood mathematics in school, are famous for near-sightedness.

In the story between the ant and the grasshopper, humans are the grasshopper, and even the ants of humanity are more hoarders, than intelligent beings…

What are you talking about Sophie… what is this b.s. again? You ask… because you think I am putting you and all of humanity down.

But what I am doing is bringing some distinctions, shades of gray, into your black and white world that has been leaving you miserable… utterly miserable.

I am going to toot my own horn… if I don’t, maybe no one will

If you are not for you, who is for you? (~Hillel)

If You Don’t Toot Your Own Horn, Who Will?

One of the results I got out of having my own predatory genes adjusted from zero to three, is self-appreciation. I now own my results. I am proud of them. Not too much… just as much as they deserve to be proud of.

Finally Hillel the elder would be proud of me. Having no predatory genes, I was never fully be able to be for myself… I always hoped that someone will come and rescue me.

The puzzle of human evolution, of human health, how are we doing as a species?

Almost any puzzle worth its name has a linchpin type of “catch”… that doesn’t look anything worth exploring.

It looks innocuous, unimportant, just like anything and everything else.

Whether it is physical puzzle or a mental puzzle, it has one catch…

In my growth I have faced and solved many puzzles.

The solution didn’t befall me like magic.
I wasn’t shown the solution to any of those.
I had to solve them, piecemeal, one by one.

The only things that got me through are

curiosity
the ability to detach
enough misery for an army

Alive Inside

I have been going to Senior exercise classes for two years now, and my life has a high point every week: the exercise class.

I just watched a documentary and I found out why. The documentary is introducing music through personal headphones and ipods to people with Alzheimer’s and dementia, showing that they come alive, and their memories, at least temporarily, return, and with it their sense of being a person, and joy.

I live in silence… and dance at the exercise class. I don’t have a radio, don’t have a TV, so I don’t listen to music, but when I accidentally do… I party. I celebrate… OK, too much information? ok… I shut up.

Principle: Make your plane land on the landing strip, regardless of the weather

I have been “harping” on this with my students: hear the principle first, and then hear the rest…

If I asked you (Cinderella) to separate the wheat from the chaff… what would you do first? If you are like me, you first find out what is the difference… in looks, in weight, and then start separating them accordingly.

I even used to use this capacity (oh, forgot to say, it’s a capacity!) to hire or not hire someone to work with me. I would ask someone to separate a pile of things by their category…
For you Everything is the same as everything else … except not always
Universally missing capacity… I found out.  The underlying capacity can be said with these words: be able to tell the forest for the trees.
