There’s Nothing To Get And There’s Nothing To Fix… is that true?
A Cup Of Tea
Nan-in, a Japanese Zen master during the Meiji era (1868 – 1912), received a university professor who came to him to inquire about Zen.
Nan-in served tea. He poured it into his visitor’s cup until it was full, and then he kept on pouring.
The professor watched it overflow until he could no longer restrain himself. “It’s full. No more will go in!” he cried out.
“Like this cup,” Nan-in said, “you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?”
Why am I sharing this anecdote? I intend to return You To Power So You Can Have Grace, Ease And Power Inside The Machine And Make the machine and your life Fly
But your cup is full… you already know the meaning of everything… in fact have known it forever… and therefore your life is fixed, and that’s that. So you merely sample what I teach, you pick and choose what you like and don’t like, even what you hear or ignore.
Maybe you can’t do better. Maybe you can only see what is visible from the singular vantage point: from behind your eyes.
What does that mean?
There is a word in the English language that is used in a limiting way: only as duty, or what you should do.

If you suck the last little bit of energy out of your battery and then charge it, next day it will give you a little more… ((I just read that this is not true for all types of batteries… well, it is true for most people…)
But if you suck the energy sparingly, if you are more worried about the battery than about building something with the energy… at the end of the day energy is left in the battery.
You charge it overnight, and next day the battery will show full, but its full is only the 70% you used the day before…
And little by little, your sparing the battery attitude, your stinginess leaves you with hardly any energy to get things done, to think, to dream, to imagine, to be creative.
This is how life works.
The energy-loss, the loss of vibrancy, capacity loss can be gradually reversed…

You’ll get the most out of this article, if you map it on yourself, on your life… Everything I write about you can find in your own life, in one form or another.
On Tuesdays I do my grocery shopping. Oftentimes I buy something chocolate, not a whole lot, a few bites I can finish before I get home. Other times I buy more…
I always know I did something really stupid within a few hours… Sugar doesn’t agree with me.
Sometimes I am knocked out for days… my mood, my energy level, my sleep, my mental sharpness all suffer.
So, here I am, Wednesday morning. It began with me not wanting to get up. Then I was so cold, my teeth were chattering. Then I didn’t feel like doing anything. Apathetic.
So I started to ponder, through the fog, and here I am two whole hours later… by this time, normally, I have finished two articles. Not today… I don’t even know if there is enough in me for one whole article… But let me try.
How you do anything is how you do everything.
The great thing about this statement, that you can pull out a little corner of someone’s life and see the whole life… just like with holograms… Don’t even try to understand if you eat sugar or drink, or eat bread… it’s too complicated for you… lol.

When you are trying to use your mind to be well, healthy, vital, vibrant, and smart
Your mind is good for mind stuff… but being well, being healthy, being vital, being vibrant, and even being smart are intrinsic values, and the mind cannot wrap itself around it: they are above mind.
Mind is concerned with what mind is concerned with, and it is never the whole; it’s the pieces, it’s the spot cleaning.
Mind thinks that if it put together the parts it can see are needed, the parts would create health, vitality, etc… but the mind, the mechanistic systemic organ is sorely mistaken. In the paradigm of the mind two plus two makes four… same level where you started: parts. No life.
Life is an intrinsic value… impenetrable by the mind.

OK… this is the continuation of the WWII article…
In that I talk about Hitler and look at what was the issue that caused him losing the war in Russia… So I am repeating what I said there…
Hitler: 10 capacities working. Enough to come to power. Enough to dupe millions and millions. But not enough to create and execute a winning strategy of war. Impatient, jumping around, making blunders. Also: he didn’t see the big picture… his greed blinded him.
Believing his own interpretation of things, he fires his decision making experts… and loses the war.
What capacity was missing? System, process, resilience, flexibility, and astute. And definitely missing the big picture.
Brings it down to human level, doesn’t it?
So what is a skill, what is a capacity, what is a talent?
And what is Life Force, what is desire, ambition, and greed?
These are the questions I have been pondering, muscle testing, and answering on my current level of knowledge next.
And the last question is: could we call these capacities life skills?

Superiority… The word comes up a lot in my coaching. Mostly in the context of your soul correction.
But in reality, some things are superior to other things… because all exists on many scales.
On the DNA capacities “scale” someone with 30 capacities is superior to someone who has 29, 20, 10, 7.
I haven’t found anyone superior with less than seven capacities, though I am sure there are.
So superior is not the issue. Acting superior is the issue.
It attacks people’s egos, the part of a human that makes sure the person survives. And as in any competition, it can get ugly. ((Ugly really appeals to the lowest common denominator. They are attracted to the low vibration, low capacity, brawn person… that is the problem in democracy: people who are low vibration, self-serving are elected by the low vibration, self-serving crowds. The same people who were so vocal answering my email with their imminent wisdom knowing what capacities mean, and such.))
People tend to cultivate the capacities that they consider an unfair advantage in the competition for survival.
In politics, it is mostly lying convincingly, trashing the other, promising, and such. In many areas that is physical strength.

I have been in this inquiry since February when I first heard Tai say: the strongest predictor of your success, in any area of life, is the level of your awareness.
So what is this awareness that is so important.
Nine months… it’s taken me till today to get complete clarity of what this “thing” awareness is.
Six million Jews perished in the gas chambers and mass graves during the holocaust, because they were not aware.
Tens of millions of people were ashamed of themselves and their association with Germany, people who elected Hitler and the Nazi party… because they weren’t aware.

Our ultimate aim is to become fully conscious and capable as unique individual expressions of All That Is.
This is very catchy… titillating even. I read this on a blog talking about the reincarnated soul… Barry McGuiness: personal vibration: 170. Truth value of teaching: 4%.
People look at spiritual work as titillating, and that is why nothing happens as a result of the “work” they do. ((
Work is always painful. Work is never “nice”, never an experience, never passive. The soul isn’t doing the work, and the world’s people consciousness isn’t like the Bell Curve…
It’s more like 99.99999999999999% of humanity is unconscious, and has scarcely any spiritual capacities working for them.

The first thinking brain, the genes driven brain creates a life of reactivity, full of fear, full of anxiety, full of sharp turns and devastating jerks. I’ve lived there… and I hated it.
The second thinking brain, the one that evaluates, reasons, figures stuff out, is slow and plodding, and hard work. Creates real solutions, keeps you out of trouble… but not really fun.
And then there is the third thinking brain… the work of thinking is done in the background, on the back burner, while the foreground is silent, resting, or busy learning something new..
That is where I live now.
I am getting a few questions about that, and I decided to tell you as much as I can see… the mechanism is largely hidden from my view… It is in the background…
I’ll use myself, and clients’ and students’ stuff as illustrations…
In the past month I saw more maturing, more “going to the next level” than I had seen in all my career as a coach.

Animals are not forceful. Plants are not forceful. Why? Because, while the selfish gene is quite forceful, the animals surrender to the selfish gene… and go “with” it.
Humans are animals with a mind… and the mind is forceful. More forceful than the selfish gene…
The selfish gene is clear on what it wants: it wants to increase itself in the gene pool. That is all it is interested in. It negotiates with nature, with other species, with toxins, with members of the same species continually to lead to evolutionary stable strategies…. ess in short. It adapts or it dies. The more adaptable, the more aware the gene and the vehicle, the more successful the gene is in propagating itself, and it thrives. It cannot afford to be forceful: forceful comes from blindness, and the repercussions is extinction. Forceful means: unaware and uncaring…
