Foresight is available only to sentient beings. Nature, the Universe, don’t have foresight, don’t predict, don’t care, don’t make things wrong, don’t have regrets, and… gasp, evolution is NOT the survival of the fittest, it is the survival of the lucky. I’ll talk about this last one in another article, when the thought will be fully developed.
For now, I am interested in foresight and divination… this is the subject of this article.

There are two big categories of humans from the aspect of personal growth.
sheep, victim, the effect… not in action, hoping, praying, visualizing, etc.
Climber can be someone who climbs the Tree of Life… and can be the type of person I want to talk about in this article. The politician. The ruthless user. The win-lose type of person. The either/or person who cannot even imagine, tolerate, or stomach the you AND me model of thinking.
Why do you want to know them? Because you need to know evil intimately to fight evil. Both outside and inside.

When the ‘guru’ is wrong
People put gurus on a pedestal, but guru simply means ‘teacher’ in some language: teacher… wise teacher.
But I am not a guru. I may teach, but my methodology, experimenting, is more scientific.
Scientists have a hypothesis, and then proceed to prove or disprove it. Both are good results.
But sometimes a preconceived notion leaks in. 😦

It’s been very difficult for me to bring examples to the phenomenon “or-ness”, in spite of the fact that it is all over. I was trying to define it, but it’s eluded me.
Here is an article I didn’t write. It is a beautiful illustration of the principle of how to replace “or” with “and” and give birth to a lot better, a lot more loving life than it was before. Really nicely done:

There is a Landmark Education distinction that no one gets…
It has a huge overlap with the distinction “you live in a world of your own design”.
This, the “you live in a world of your own design” is somewhat like the Law of Attraction: you attract what you are… but much deeper. It is BEING that, not feeling, or thinking only, though you may feel and think it as well.
But thinking and feeling don’t create being… the reverse, the opposite is true. The thinking and the feeling come from your being.
The overlapping distinction, “you are a clearing for” is almost the same, but has a funnel like feeling to it.

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.

If I know you well, your relationship to life is mainly through understanding. Which you either have or not.
When you do, you are happy, even though you are just as unsuccessful living well, being fulfilled as you were before.
When you hear something, when you see something, you try to understand it. When people do something, stupid, smart, hurtful, you want to understand why they did it. Don’t you?
When you read, you try to understand it.
People who are successful, high achievers, they don’t try to understand, they may not understand at all.

The two fairy tales that give you your life
I am running three developmental courses right now. Developmental courses and personal conversations are:
How I inform Source on what needs to get done and what’s in the way of humans being willing and able to be all they can be;
How I test ideas, theories, activators, methods and such;
How I find out what people can do, what they can’t do. What they can learn; and what they cannot learn because it is not a skill, it’s a talent, a gift.
How I get great ideas for articles, like the idea of the two fairy tales.

If you ever decided that you wanted to live your life in a particular way, successful, joyful, productive, fulfilling, you would want to CHOOSE a world view, a world view that COULD create the perfect foundation for that type of life, the life of your choosing.
But you never decided… and you never chose. You have a worldview, or maybe a worldview has you…
World view is a particular interpretation of life, of creation, of power, of choice, of freedom. Of other people, of nature. Of what is important and what isn’t. Of what is agreed upon and what isn’t.
Depending on the world view, only certain actions and certain things can be present. It’s like a stage in a play: you can’t put there stuff that doesn’t belong. That doesn’t have a role… On the stage, if there is a gun there, you can be sure it will be used during the story. I read that somewhere about Chekhov’s plays…
