  1. He’s probably skilled at marketing. Or someone around him is. Don’t hate the player, hate the game. And you actually don’t wanna hate the game either. Join the game and be the best in the game. Be the best at the game without even playing the game! That’s what you want.
  2. Emerald I think doing more school might not be the best for you. I think whatever you wanted to be you could just do it now. You're already ready. If you wanted to be a Personal Development teacher, I think you should just go ahead and do that now. I think doing school would just slow you down. I would just assume you're already a Personal Development teacher, which you are, and pitch yourself in that manner. I consider myself a Personal Development teacher, and I have no interest at all in going to school for anything. School would just slow me down. I've done enough school in my life. I think you could just start pitching your life coaching services on your channel just like Leo did at first. I think more school is a hurdle that you think you need that you actually don't need -- and I think it would be a distraction, frankly. I hate to be blunt because I know you're a teacher -- but school is f*cking overrated! You need to be getting the hell away from more school at this point. You don't need anymore school. I assume you have a Master's Degree. That's enough school. A Bachelor's Degree is enough school, frankly. After that, you wanna get the hell away from the school as fast as you can and into the real world. You have more of a marketing problem than an education problem, see. And you're already set up to do the marketing. You're already doing marketing! So, you just need to keep doing what you're already doing. Don't get distracted. Joseph
  3. WE GOTTA BE CAREFUL WITH THIS NOTION OF BEING ‘TRIGGERED’ AND ASSUMING THAT ANY KIND OF LESS THAN PEACEFUL REACTION TO LIFE MEANS ONE HAS BEEN ‘TRIGGERED’ — CLINGING TO A BELIEF LIKE THAT IS A TRAP IN ENLIGHTENMENT WORK — YOU’RE ASSUMING THAT YOUR TIER-ONE PSYCHOLOGICAL THEORY, YOUR IDEAL, IS A CONTEXT-INDEPENDENT FACT OR INHERENT NORM ABOUT ‘REALITY’, ABOUT BE-ING — THIS IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF HOW CLINGING TO TIER-ONE PSYCHOLOGY NOTIONS THE WRONG WAY CAN STUNT, BLOCK, OR DISTRACT YOUR ENLIGHTENMENT WORK — ENLIGHTENMENT WORK IS HOSTILE TO TIER-ONE CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING, AND A LOT OF ENLIGHTENMENT TEACHERS HAVE REALIZED EXACTLY THIS, ALTHOUGH THEY DIDN’T USE MY TERMINOLOGY TO EXPRESS IT — LEMME EXPLAIN [Writing in process]
  4. SCIENTIFIC STATEMENTS HAVE TO DO WITH ‘REALITY’ — BUT THEY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH BE-ING IN THE MOMENT WITHOUT PRE-JUDGMENTS OR PRE-EXPECTATIONS — SCIENTIFIC STATEMENTS ARE IRRELEVANT TO THE ISSUE OF SURRENDERING TO BE-ING, WHICH IS WHAT ENLIGHTENMENT WORK IS ALL ABOUT [Writing in process]
  5. ALLOW 'FAILURE' INSOFAR AS YOUR DAILY SCHEDULE IS CONCERNED -- YOU NEED TO WELCOME DEVIATIONS FROM WHAT YOU THINK YOU SHOULD BE DOING -- BUT AT THE SAME TIME, FILL OUT THE DAILY SCHEDULE EVERYDAY TOO -- THIS IS A PARADOX THAT WILL BECOME EASIER TO UNDERSTAND AS TIME GOES ON FOR YOU -- AND THIS IS WHAT MY SCHEDULING SYSTEM MAKES SUSTAINABLE IN MY LIFE; NAMELY, I MAKE THE DAILY SCHEDULE AND ALLOW MYSELF TO DEVIATE FROM IT TOO -- THE SCHEDULE IS BASICALLY JUST A TOOL TO RAISE MY AWARENESS -- AND IT'S A RECORD THAT I CAN GO BACK AND LOOK AT TO GAIN EVEN DEEPER AWARENESS AT A LATER DATE -- I WOULDN'T GO SO FAR AS SAYING 'FAILURE IS GOOD' IN THIS SCHEDULING CONTEXT, BECAUSE THAT PUTS A 'VALUE SPIN' ON IT, RIGHT -- BE-ING JUST IS WHAT IT IS: WE DON'T WANT TO BE PUTTING ANY KIND OF 'VALUE SPIN' ON BE-ING -- ONLY A 'SELF' DOES 'VALUE SPINNING' WITH RESPECT TO BE-ING [Writing in process]
  6. Wow. That's something I think is worthwhile to do. I gotta do that at some point.
  7. WHAT STAGE ORANGE THINKS ACTUAL PROBLEM SITUATIONS ARE IS NOT WHAT I MEAN BY 'ACTUAL PROBLEM SITUATIONS' -- YOU DON'T BECOME KEENLY AWARE OF THE MACRO AND MICRO-LEVEL 'ACTUAL PROBLEM SITUATIONS' IN YOUR LIFE UNTIL YOU'RE VERY ADVANCED IN PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT WORK: ENLIGHTENMENT WORK, LIFE PURPOSE WORK, CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING WORK [Writing in process]
  8. THE ESSENCE OF PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT WORK IS BECOMING KEENLY AWARE OF YOUR MACRO AND MICRO-LEVEL 'ACTUAL PROBLEM SITUATIONS' IN YOUR LIFE AND BECOMING KEENLY AWARE OF HOW DISTRACTED YOU ARE FROM DOING THE WORK REQUIRED TO SOLVE THEM SUSTAINABLY [Writing in process]
  9. YOU CAN INTERPRET CONCEPTUAL SYSTEMS AS MORE OR LESS USEFUL TOOLS FOR SOLVING MACRO AND MICRO-LEVEL ACTUAL PROBLEM SITUATIONS IN YOUR LIFE (I CALL THESE 'FRAMEWORKS') -- RATHER THAN INTERPRETING THEM AS CONCEPTUAL TRUTHS ABOUT REALITY (I CALL THESE 'PARADIGMS') -- THIS IS GOING FROM TIER-ONE TO TIER-TWO CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING [Writing in process]
  10. A LOT OF PEOPLE SEEM TO USE THE WORD 'EGO' AS A SYNONYM FOR 'MIND' -- IT IS USEFUL TO THINK OF THE 'MIND' AS GIVING US A FALSE SENSE OF ATTACHING, CONTROLLING, DOING, AND CONCEPTUAL KNOWING. BUT, MAYBE IT'S BETTER NOT TO TIE THESE FOUR CONCEPTS TO 'MIND' AND TO DITCH THE CONCEPT OF 'MIND' ALTOGETHER -- I DON'T WANNA CREATE AND DEVELOP THIS DEMON MIND CONCEPT, RIGHT; WHICH I THINK IS A LOT OF WHAT PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT 'EGO' -- THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT THE DEMON MIND THAT'S DECEPTIVE ( THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT 'MIND', BUT THEY'RE USING THE WORD 'EGO' IN LEIU OF 'MIND') -- PERHAPS IT IS USEFUL TO THINK OF THE MIND AS DESCARTES' DEMON DECEIVER, I'LL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE HOW I THINK ABOUT THAT AS TIME MOVES ON; I DON'T LIKE TO DEMONIZE THINGS BECAUSE THAT CAN CAUSE PROBLEMS IN ENLIGHTENMENT WORK -- BUT THE 'FRAMEWORK OF MIND' OR MORE SPECIFICALLY, THE 'FRAMEWORK OF THE DECEPTIVE MIND' DOES SEEM TO BE VERY USEFUL IF HANDLED IN A WISE WAY -- BE CAREFUL ABOUT CLINGING TO THE 'PARADIGM OF THE DECEPTIVE MIND OR NO DECEPTIVE MIND', THAT'S A TRAP IN ENLIGHTENMENT WORK -- DITTO FOR THE 'PARADIGM OF MIND OR NO MIND' [Writing in process] Video on point to watch:
  11. RAISING YOUR AWARENESS IS THE KEY TO ALL THREE AREAS OF PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT: ENLIGHTENMENT, CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING, AND LIFE PURPOSE -- AND WHEN YOU RAISE YOUR AWARENESS THROUGH DOING WORK IN THESE THREE AREAS, YOUR LIFE WILL SLOWLY CLEAN ITSELF UP FOR YOU -- YOU AS A 'SELF' ARE NOT GONNA BE DOING ANYTHING PER SE -- IT'S JUST WHAT YOU SEE CLEARLY YOU CAN'T UNSEE -- BUT THE 'SELF' DOESN'T LIKE THIS RIGHT, BECAUSE THE 'SELF' WANTS TO BE THE CHANGE AGENT -- THE 'SELF' WANTS TO SAY, 'LOOK AT WHAT I DID', 'LOOK AT THIS BEAUTIFUL CATHEDRAL I MADE' -- THE 'SELF' WANTS TO THINK IT HAS THIS REALITY THING UNDER CONTROL -- BUT THE 'SELF' IS JUST A DISTRACTION OF THE MIND -- YOU'RE NOT GONNA THINK YOUR WAY THROUGH YOUR PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT PROBLEMS -- YOU'RE NOT GONNA CRAFT A GREAT LIFE FOR YOURSELF -- IT'S ONLY AWARENESS THAT CAN GIVE YOU WISE EYES -- YOU HAVE TO HAVE HUNDREDS OF EPIPHANIES/REALIZATIONS/INSIGHTS BASICALLY AS YOUR AWARENESS GETS KEENER AND KEENER OVER TIME -- THAT'S WHERE YOU GET YOUR PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT PAYOFF -- ALL OF A SUDDEN EVERYTHING THAT YOU NEED IS PROVIDED TO YOU WHEN YOU HAVE THE KEEN EYES TO SEE IT -- LEMME CONTRAST AWARENESS WITH DOING AND THINKING [Writing in process]
  12. But see what's weird is that you're actually giving advice in this post. Can you see it?
  13. You need to get to the point where you accept your body. This is something that Enlightenment Work really helps with. It helped me a lot with that issue.
  14. A four egg plain omelette with steamed veggies. Dice up half a Jalapeno to mix in with your eggs if you're so inclined. That's how I do it.
  15. Romantic love sure changes your entire metaphysical approach to reality, doesn't it. Now, whether that's a disease or not is open to interpretation.
