Non-physical pain… or pleasant feelings… explains nearly everything you do

This article is dangerously personal…

Last night I watched a movie, Children of Men.

I remember seeing the trailer 10 years ago when it was a new movie. Then I never heard of it again until yesterday. That it is an accurate showing of where we are heading and where we already are.

I didn’t have anything else to go on, so I watched the movie almost till the last five-ten minutes not knowing what I was “supposed” to feel.

The reality it shows is horrid. Not supported with any emotions, any feelings whatsoever. So it made no sense to me. Why are these people killing each other?

But in the end the movie showed something it was worth watching for: men bowing to, in wonder, being uplifted by Life.

Feelings are running you. Do you have a handle on your feelings?

Needs are feelings. They run you, from the inside. Need is a feeling… and it can be on many levels.

Animals have needs. Human have the same needs, and more.

Depending on how many needs you have, you are on different evolutionary levels of humanity.

In this article we’ll need with the two needs where most get stuck: the needs of the self. These are non-physical needs, resulting in non-physical pain if not met, and pleasure if they are met.

So let’s begin.

I have always wondered why it is that only people who commit to something and then work on it are ever happy.

I could not explain it with the limited knowledge I’ve had… but this is changing.

Is antisemitism, racism, prejudice OK?

I am having an interesting issue to ponder. Maybe you can ponder with me?

The guy whose writing I am so taken with, his books, the Hungarian guy, according to my muscle test has a prejudice against Jews.

In common parlance, he is antisemitic.

Nothing special there, a full 30% of the developed countries’ population is antisemitic and 70% of the Hungarian population. 1.4% of Hungary’s population is Jewish. A total of about 140,000 people. Before the Holocaust the number was 900,000. 14.31 million worldwide, or 0.2 percent. Or two people in every thousand people.

If you are part of a minority against whom there can be or are negative prejudices, a Jew, Black, Moslem, Indian, Chinese… you’ll have this issue as a daily, in the background and maybe even in the foreground conversation.

Growth is like chocolate working out the lumps by itself


How to grow…I dreamed it. Or rather I was kept up by it…I dreamed BEING chocolate… Working out all the bumps and unevenness… And I knew what it meant.

Then I got up… ran to my computer to write it down, because it is so important… By now it is almost like an unreal memory… But this is how much I could capture for you:

The way to grow and growing into excellent is to keep making parts of you better, until there is nothing to make better. Even and smooth like chocolate.

I don’t procrastinate.

I learned a new method of finding and following a mentor. You want to learn something, improve something, get something done. You find someone who can do what you can’t yet do. The link will be good till January 5 only…
You use the “compare and join” method: you compare what they do or how they do it, and find ONE THING that they do better to produce better results. You “join” them in doing that…

I don’t procrastinate. You could join me in that.

What? Procrastination is so “normal” that not procrastinating can put you into the mad-house… involuntary hospitalization. lol.

There is reality, and then there is the map of reality…


Kamikaze or the Cowardly Lion
New distinction: there is reality, and then there is the map of reality ((in your nervous system, feelings and the word level thinking (symbols and marker feeling) )).

If this sounds complicated, it is because it is.

But it is built of simple linear elements, so we can look at each linear element, and with enough examined, start seeing the three-dimensional picture.
Your map of reality is vastly out of alignment with the actual reality.

On Venus, Have We Got a Rabbi!

A long-lost space age satire about what it means to be a Jew from one of science fiction’s greatest humorists

By William Tenn

The story you are about to read was almost never written. By the early 1970s, one of America’s greatest science-fiction satirists had all but retired. After a celebrated literary career under the pen name of William Tenn, London-born Jewish author Philip Klass had hung up his pseudonym and settled in as a professor of English at Penn State University. That is, until he had a chance encounter with some young fans at a science-fiction convention in 1973.

“They asked me why I wasn’t still writing,” Klass recalled. He responded that teaching was its own satisfaction, and that “there was not much market for the fiction I wanted to write these days, especially for a specific story whose title was all I had but which had been on my mind for many months.” Klass told them the name, sure that it was a nonstarter. But as luck would have it, one of the fans was planning a collection of Jewish science fiction—and so “On Venus, Have We Got a Rabbi,” William Tenn’s final story, was commissioned.

Do you want to be a Jew?

I want to tell you a little story… because it’s been on my mind for a while, and I need to get it off my chest.

YOU don’t need it. You really don’t want to hear it, because you won’t like what it says about you.

So, it’s OK if you click off now. Good. Now I am alone with the handful of people who want to hear what I have to say. Because it is what makes us this little group of… Jews?

Funny, eh? Let me explain.

Long time ago, over the seas, and the mountains, a little old man, called God was in search of some people. Some people who would take it on themselves to run an experiment, much like the first fish that climbed on dry land.

So this little old man name God went from country to country, from town to town, village to village. He must have visited thousands of groups of people. The conversation always went the same way:

He (God) asked: would you be willing to follow my rules for living if I offered you to be the chosen people with unlimited wisdom, prosperity, and the key to The Kingdom?

They (the people): What are the rules?

So the little man (God), knowing the answers already, started to say:

You shall have no other gods before Me.
You shall not make idols.
You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Honor your father and your mother.
You shall not murder.
You shall not commit adultery.

This was the point where 99% of the groups he asked said: No way… The one percent got hung up on the next line: You shall not steal.

God was at his wits’ end. No one was willing to participate in his experiment.

At this point he got to this narrow strip of land on the Mediterranean Sea, and found this people, shepherds. He asked them too: Would you be willing to follow my rules for living if I offered you to be the chosen people with unlimited wisdom, prosperity, and the key to The Kingdom?

The men asked: What are the rules?

The little man has already lost hope, but dutifully answered: (I am using an abbreviated version of the rules… )

You shall have no other gods before Me.
You shall not make idols.
You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Honor your father and your mother.
You shall not murder.
You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not steal.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
You shall not covet.

The men asked for a day or two, to discuss it between themselves. And at the end of the second day they said: We’ll do it.

What the old man didn’t say is this: Are you willing to do this, in spite of all the hatred, envy, jealousy, murderous violent anger your learnedness, your knowledge, your faithfulness, your excellence will trigger in all the peoples of Earth?

He didn’t know. That was something he did not calculate for. He didn’t calculate that for the slothful, the most abominable sight is the sight of a diligent person.

He didn’t

Who are your customers? You don’t have any? Think again!

You have customers. Many. You have “vendor-customer” relationship with them.

It takes intellectual intelligence (the one the IQ tests test) to see this. It has nothing to do with being stingy, or emotionally unevolved.

So let’s have this conversation now to cause a sudden rise in your intelligence, and potentially a sudden rise in your income, your popularity, your street value.

The story behind this knowledge comes from 1991-1992.

I was a student in Werner Erhard and Associates in 1991, when Werner appeared on 60 minutes and consequently had to leave the country, his company, and go into exile.

He sold the company to its employees, and the company faltered.

More on customer service

Customer service comes from the heart afwj from Lyndon Seno
and an article:

 
Who your customer really is

Perhaps you think that the people who have direct contact with actual paying customers or clients are the only ones who need to consider service. You, as someone who deals purely with people inside the company, are not a giver of service and do not have customers yourself. What about the person from credit control who needs you to get a copy of a customer’s invoice for her? Or the person who does your books who needs you to keep your receipts in some kind of order?

People you deal with inside the organisation are your customers too – internal, rather than external customers, but still deserving of the same consideration and care.

The external customers are the people who buy your goods and services and who make pay day possible.

The internal customers are the people with whom you work inside your company, the people who pull together as a team to deliver the product or service required by the external customer.
What your customer expects
Although service is difficult to define, we can still say what it is that the customer wants from a transaction. Think about it for yourself – put yourself in the shoes of a customer of yours, or think of a time when you, as a customer contacted an organisation. You might like to make a list and see how it compares with the one below.

The customer wants:

someone who will listen;
someone who will solve their problem; and,
someone who will do what they say they will.

Or, to put it another way, the customer wants to speak to someone who is:

Courteous
Friendly

Understanding
Informal

Sincere
Responsive

Tolerant
Smiling

Open-minded
Truthful

Motivated

Empathetic

Reliable

There are other things you may have put – accepting, non-judgemental, trustworthy, professional – and these are equally valid points. Lists like this grow longer the more time you spend thinking about them. What you can’t do is to put these points into an order of importance – that depends on your customer. Remember, too, that customers are neither aware of, nor interested in, how many other customers there are or how busy you may be. As far as they are concerned, you have one customer and one problem with which to deal!
Benefits of good service
If, as service givers, we deal with our customers effectively and efficiently, the company will benefit in a number of areas:

the cost of solving problems that occur will be minimised;
money owed to the company may be collected quickly;
a relationship is developed between the company and the customer;
the possibility of supplying additional products and services is opened up; and,
it introduces the
