Money is like a capacity… Whatever you have more of, you’ll get more of. Misery, stupidity, mistakes… or money, happiness, success…
Money is a means… a means to get more… and so are capacities… spiritual, DNA, epigenetic capacities.
One way you can see this is that the rich gets richer, the poor gets poorer… but how? but why?
This phenomenon is visibly true in every area of life, not just money, not just love. This sentence, from the New Testament, is true…
“I tell you that to everyone who has, more shall be given, but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away.”
As I am doing my work to take a group of people to become human beings… I see it clearly in my work. People don’t grasp principles… they only grasp tricks and strategies.

If you don ‘t know what flak is… flak is strong anti aircraft fire…
Why? It seems that I have fallen into standards and ideals mode…
What is that? you ask… It is where the person entertains how things, people, themselves SHOULD BE, should do, should have.
I have been harping… I am a harpy (a rapacious monster described as having a woman’s head and body and a bird’s wings and claws or depicted as a bird of prey with a woman’s face) when it comes to being well read, observant, and intelligent. To the degree, that this morning I asked Source if it is worth training people who are not like I say they should be. But Source says: it is.
This is the problem with the standards and ideals attitude: they want to deal with only ‘deserving’ people…
The other problem most have is that they themselves don’t match their standards and ideals… they are fully sh*t… Am I too? Source says no… but that doesn’t make me much better.

The biggest issue is: no one understands what respect means. Do I respect or disrespect my student I shout at? Do I respect or disrespect the visitor I tell to bug off when he is asking me questions, even though he hasn’t even understand what he is talking about?
Do you respect others or yourself when you buy up the toilet paper stocks in your local supermarket? Do you respect yourself or others when you keep on taking the bus, coughing at the exercise class?
In my city, about 140 thousand people, it is eerily quiet this morning. It is as quiet at 8:40 am, as it normally is at 4-5 in the morning. I can hear a bus here and there… but hardly any traffic, non in my street. Even the garbage collectors haven’t arrived… I hope they are still working.

Why is respect hard and rare?
Because respect includes the capacity and the willingness to look again, but this time look from a different vantage point, preferably from the point of view of the other person. Of the big picture, away from the wishful thinking, the inflated self-image, and your expectations.
I remember, that all my life, all I ever wanted is to be considered a person. In a world where people consider themselves things in the world of things, being treated, being looked at, being listened to as a person is so rare that I can remember every time it happened. Or every time I detect that energy in a book… I tear up.
And yet, everyone wants to be treated like a person, and everyone treats themselves and others like they are things.
One of the big prices we pay is with our money.
I had this conversation this past Sunday with a friend who is working on becoming a millionaire: he is at minus lots-of-money, lots of zeros right now.

What is the connection between respect and appreciation? Both respect and appreciation are spiritual capacities… states of being.
I am having a lot of insights lately. Of course, it was predictable: I am running an experimental workshop: it is driving up the questions.
When you have questions, relevant questions, you are going to get insights. You ask irrelevant questions? you’ll get no insights.
Anyway, the circumstance this morning was this: I accidentally double-paid for a course. Sent a support request to get a refund, and they answered that their policy was to talk to me, to make sure I was who I said I was.

In the movie, Stranger Than Fiction,
our hero is doing what he is doing, unconsciously.
When Harold Crick, the hero of the movie, starts hearing the narrating voice in his head, what the voice says takes him out of his unconsciousness, his usual way of doing things, going through life like a drone, and this changes his life.

One sign of low intelligence is thinking that you see everything that is relevant. And when someone shows you something new: that doesn’t change your thinking… you think: now I really see everything. I even catch this last one… although not as frequently as I used to…
It’s normal to think that… but it is also stupid. Because a person who thinks that doesn’t even look. And definitely won’t look differently… Won’t ask different questions. Will be more interested in what they have to say than what others have to say.
They want to go for the ‘answers’ within… but what is within is not what gives the ‘answers’… the answers are without, or outside the narrow space the low intelligence person is looking at.
The Driftwood capacity is the divider between low intelligence and higher intelligence.
But it is tricky.

Even if you have the driftwood capacity activated, you have to learn what it is like to be looking.
Yesterday’s article about assumptions should clue you in: you mostly are stuck with your assumption: you have never really looked and seen.
It seems that to observe, to look, to look until you see something is not a low-vibration person activity, and most people ARE low vibration… so most people never look.
The ones that do are famous at least in what they do for a living.
Quentin Tarantino… Albert Einstein, Ayn Rand.
It really seems that this capacity to look and see is very rare.

What the f… are you talking about. Sophie?
Because 99% reality, 99% of all-there-is is invisible to most of us, we all developed some way to cope with that… and of those the most damaging, the most harmful is assumptions.
You assume you know. Youe assume the context. You assume what is wanted and needed.
Asking questions is below you… you think, and you don’t ask.

Actually, lots of things can only be seen from the sideways view… and therein lies the inability for humans, for homo sapiens to grow, evolve, because 98% of all humans can’t look from the sideways view. And the 2% that can, doesn’t know that about the 98%, or even know about themselves, so they don’t fully utilize this rare capacity either.
I just finished reading a near future sci-fi novel, where part of the book plays out in Nazi Germany, and even in interactions with Hitler. Hitler depicted very differently from any depiction I have ever seen or read: a hygienically challenged weakling. I muscle tested, and the test proved this new picture more accurate than most people have: Hitler had only one predatory gene active, so he was pretty powerless, a petty tyrant. Greasy hair, greasy skin,… ugh…
He lost WWII, because he fancied himself to know to do what he didn’t know to do… run a successful war on many fronts. Thank heaven for that…
