Subjective Relationships

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

“What is the primary goal?” “You should know, Professor. You programmed me.” – War Games Well… this 30-day trial of inspiration is absolutely amazing. I’m so far down the rabbit hole of subjective reality that I can perceive little else but rabbits now. And there sure are a LOT of rabbits down here! Today is […]

Inspiration vs. Expectation

Friday, July 30th, 2010

This 30-day inspiration trial is almost too strange. I feel like a blind man excitedly examining a rainbow. There’s definitely something there, but I’m not sure I have the faculties to make sense of it. I feel a bit foolish trying to explain it. It’s tough to translate the experience into words; words alone can’t […]

Suspending Judgment

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so. – Mark Twain Whenever I write about certain topics, especially those that seem contrary to mainstream conditioning, some people voice very strong opinions. They communicate their thoughts with a high degree of certainty, as […]

Ludicrous Results

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

When an idea is first conceived, it’s very easy to idealize it and see only the good aspects. In your imagination, anything is possible. But when ideas are implemented under real-world conditions, the results may not be what you’d expect. In fact, sometimes the results will be completely ludicrous. The Idea-Implementation Gap During the 1980s, […]

Forming Intentions

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

Hold your breath and put your head underwater. Notice that a clear intention begins to form within a matter of seconds. Now take a nice big bite of a habanero pepper and begin chewing it. Again, notice that a clear intention forms within seconds. When you are sick, notice that you gain clarity in your […]

Leadership

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

When you’re on a path of personal growth, inevitably you’re going to encounter some social resistance as you grow and change. For example, suppose you make major progress in improving your diet. Maybe you go vegetarian or vegan or raw. Or perhaps you find another path that generates positive results for you. And suppose most […]

Broadcast Your Desires

Friday, February 12th, 2010

Do you hide your true desires from the world? Do you pretend you want one thing while silently desiring something else? For example, do you desire a new lover or playmate while giving potential partners the impression that you’d like to date them first? Do you want to be earning a lot more money while […]

How You Give Your Power Away

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

One of the themes that repeatedly came up at the last Conscious Growth Workshop was the problem of giving your power away. Instead of focusing on your true desires, you erect false structures in front of your desires and then feed your power to those structures as a delay tactic. Here are some typical scenarios […]

How to Build a Stronger Ego

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

There’s a notion that’s been spread around the spiritual side of the self-help field that suggests one of our primary aims in life should be ego-less enlightenment, a state where we achieve near-perfect inner peace, where we’re one with everything but attached to nothing, and where nothing in the physical world can knock us off […]
