“The planets may impel but not compel” say Rob Brezsny, and, if in nothing else, we agree on this point.
If the planets compelled, then soul correction, as a trajectory, would be an oxymoron… leopards don’t change their spots.
My soul correction is “Forget Thyself” which impels me to place myself higher than anyone else, including any authority, including Source.
Today that soul correction, that behavior, that attitude only shows up about 10% of the time. I say this in celebration of free will… how I behave, what attitude I bring to life is up to me: I can bend even though the planets impel me to be rigid.
According to Kabbalah, somewhat the bedrock of my mindset, free will is what created the physical universe.

Your primary goal is to look
I once did a Landmark Education seminar where the main ‘mantra’ was (I paraphrase the funky Landmark language for you): ‘stand in front of what you can’t see, and keep on looking even though you can’t see anything’
Most impatient people (that is most people) latch onto something irrelevant, and stop looking. They are like a dog with a bone… There is no hurry on the creative plane… only on the horizontal plane… what you can see easily is most likely irrelevant, and a sidetrack, preventing you from actually seeing what is important.

What gives you being/acting in the present is the future you live into.
I learned that sentence in Landmark Education. And until today it was pretty much just a sentence, that I could not explain to any of my students. I will write about this until I GET IT! lol… how is that for authenticity?
This morning I was watching a TED video with Benjamin Hardy. He says somewhere: “Since 2015, my articles have been read between 50 and 100 million times. Nearly 400000 people subscribe to my weekly newsletter.” His vibration is 170, he has 2 spiritual capacities open, his stuff’s truth value is 3%: it is all tree of knowledge. But his stuff resonates with people.

What is the difference between most people’s, programs’ approach to helping people, and mine?
I spent the past day studying, listening to several books, articles on how to cause ‘stuff’ and what struck me is that every approach, every method was valuable, except… Except they were fixed.
Once a human finds something that seems to be working, on a small scale, on themselves, for example, they get stuck… now they teach that, and don’t go beyond.
Whether it is about how to get rich, how to conquer fear, how the mind works, how to become the obvious expert, how to make marketing effective, etc… they stop probing deeper, and they teach what they had gotten.
I just listened to an essay on the fallacy of obviousness… on the theory that won the Nobel Prize in economics for Daniel Kahneman.

This is part two of an article I started yesterday
I have a client whose soul correction is Fear/Fearless. She asked me how to get rid of that fear.
She is young, she is impressionable, and she acts fearful. She will have a lot of problems in life from that: it will keep her a child needing protection, someone else to look out for her.
Not what Life wants her to be.
Your soul correction is a particular way you lean away from Life, you turn away from Life: you don’t take responsibility and accountability for yourself and your life.
Life whats what Hillel the elder said some 2100 years ago:
If you are not for you, who is for you?
In this article we’ll examine what is ‘being for yourself’ means… be prepared to be surprised, my students were when they found out.

I just slashed my finger for the third time this morning. I will have a hard time muscle testing for a bit… Here is what happened:
Last night in bed I spent a lot of time looking at a deluge of memories of things I did that I am ashamed of.
They came, vividly, fast and furious, things I have long forgotten, things I am not proud of.
I resisted the temptation to explain them away, I resisted turning away. I resisted saying they are wrong.

You create your future with your words… spoken or unspoken.
What is a future?
A future is not real… and yet it appears real. There is no past in reality and there is no future. Only the present moment, how things are.
The past lives in your memory, 80% is words, 20% is perception organs information. But even those 20% are “colored” by what you said about it.
I have had quite a few Irish clients who were disciplined by their parents, mostly the mother. It was a ritual. Pull down your pants, fetch the paddle or the ladle or the hairbrush for your mother… lie over her knees, and there you went. You knew what you did that didn’t meet your mother’s expectations of you.
I was beaten out of anger… and I never knew what I did wrong. Didn’t even guess.

It seems that the body of a human is a vehicle for two “entities”, the Selfish Gene and the soul.
The Selfish Gene… that is only interested in preserving itself… the genetic material, even if and even while the family, the environment, the world is destroyed. Selfish gene is our physical nature, our lower self, and it is not very smart, has no foresight, none of the higher functions a human supposedly has. It has no interest even in the 160 spiritual capacities: in fact it considers them a nuisance, a hindrance. The Selfish gene is a brute.
The uncorrected soul, the soul you are born with, is the soul with an aberration. It has a behavior or a set of behaviors that are slanted towards ego.
The soul’s counterpart is the ego, not the Selfish Gene.

You never know where your learning will come from… bits and pieces
I put all the cash I had at hand, $25, in an envelope yesterday and wrote on it: to Frank the mailman. Today I found a Christmas card, the only one I got, from Frank the mailman, saying “Thank you for the gift.”
I cried. I am still crying. Big learning here… even though I don’t know what it is… Hopefully by the end of the article I will.
I just spent a few hours listening to really smart behavioral economists,
At the end, when they thought the microphone was already off, the interviewer and the interviewee said: “we should do this every day, we could get good at it.”
Then I watched the movie Two Popes… cried a lot. Identified with the two Catholic priests… surprised myself with that.

This topic comes from a reader, thank you. Without her prompting I would have never looked there. It would have been a big missing.
I am going to share only what I really know, from my experience, not some theories of some big names, like Freud… I am giving you only Tree of Life.
In my experience, most people have self-punishment to some degree.
There are quite a few ways to get to guilt and shame, which is at the root of this behavior.
Self-punishment for doing something wrong, lack of self-discipline
One way is to do things that we know are wrong. We want it, desire it fervently, and then we do it. If the environment is unforgiving or we have even seen anyone punished, verbally or physically, we expect to be punished.
Desire for pleasure is like a two-sided coin (do you know a coin that is not two sided? lol). One side is the fulfillment of the want or desire for pleasure, the other side is always misery. Why? Because pleasure is momentary. It comes with a downside, and the downside is either guilt, or more desire plus guilt.
