  1. TEAL REALIZES THAT YOU CAN PUT DOWN ANY MENTAL MODEL/TOOL WHEN IT'S NO LONGER USEFUL FOR THE CONTEXT AT HAND, AND PICK UP ANOTHER MODEL/TOOL OF YOUR CHOICE WHICH IS MORE ALIGNED WITH SOLVING THE NEXT ISSUE/PROBLEM AT HAND -- TEAL IS NOT WHITE-KNUCKLE CLINGING TO BELIEF, TRUTH, OR METAPHYSICS -- TEAL FULLY GROKS THE MAP VS. TERRITORY TEACHING -- BUT TEAL USES MAPS LIKE A CHAMP TO IMPROVE SYSTEMS, LIKE ALL STAGES INCLUDING AND ABOVE STAGE YELLOW DO -- BUT TEAL, UNLIKE TURQUOISE AND CORAL IS NOT A METAPHYSICAL STAGE -- TEAL HAS FIGURED OUT A WAY TO USE THE MIND WITHOUT THE MIND USING THEM -- TEAL HAS FIGURED OUT A WAY TO PUT THE MIND IN ITS PLACE -- SO TEAL IS NOT DEFINING BEING -- TEAL USES THOUGHT BUT DOESN'T GET TRAPPED IN OR MESMERIZED/HYPNOTIZED BY THOUGHT -- BUT TEAL CAN USE THE METAPHYSICAL LENSES/PARADIGMS OF TURQUOISE AND/OR CORAL WHEN SITUATIONS/CONTEXTS ARISE WHERE THOSE MODELS BECOME USEFUL TO OBTAINING/ADVANCING THE BALL TOWARDS ACHIEVING SOME OBJECTIVE -- TEAL LIKES THE TURQUOISE NETWORK OF PERSPECTIVES MODEL AND USES THAT LENS/PARADIGM FROM TIME TO TIME IN ORDER TO FOCUS, GAIN PERSPECTIVE, PRIORITIZE, AND DIAL-DOWN THE MASCULINE (YANG) EGO ENERGY -- BUT TEAL MIGHT ALSO USE THE LENS/PARADIGM OF CORAL WHEN HE WANTS TO FEEL LIKE HE HAS NO LIMITATIONS AND THAT IF HE PUTS ENOUGH ACTION/EFFORT INTO SOMETHING, HE'S GOD, SO ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE -- GOD IS THE GREAT CREATOR AT STAGE CORAL, AND YOU ARE GOD -- SO, TEAL PLAYS WITH THESE LENSES/PARADIGMS FROM CONTEXT TO CONTEXT AND USES THEM TO KEEP HIMSELF CENTERED, OBJECTIVE-FOCUSED, ACTION ORIENTED, PRIORITIZED, AGREEABLE, IN THE HEALTH-ZONE EMOTIONS, ACCEPTING OF EGOS (INCLUDING HIS OWN), LOW NEUROTICISM, GROUNDED, AND DOING GOOD DEEDS FOR HUMANITY -- TEAL IS INTERESTED IN CREATING/DEVELOPING AND WIRING IN SYSTEM PATCHES TO MAKE SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS THAT HE'S INTERNALLY DRIVEN TO MAKE IN HIS LIFE AND FOR HUMANITY -- TEAL IS CONSTANTLY RE-FRAMING WITH CHANGING MODELS/SYSTEMS IN ORDER TO CONTROL/REMOVE RESISTANCE OF THE COGNITIVE BODY AND EMOTIONAL BODY AS THE SITUATIONS/CONTEXTS CHANGE IN ORDER TO TAKE THE ACTIONS/MAKE THE IMPROVEMENTS THAT THEY WANT TO MAKE -- TEAL IS ALL ABOUT LIVING NO LIMITATIONS, ESPECIALLY THOSE LIMITATIONS SPOKEN BY THE MIND
  2. THIS IS A GREAT SUMMARY OF SOME PRINCIPLES OF CHINESE PHILOSOPHY WHICH I'M DIRECTLY QUOTING HERE FROM WIKIPEDIA (SOURCE LINK BELOW*) Although the individual philosophical schools differ considerably, they nevertheless share a common vocabulary and set of concerns. Among the terms commonly found in Chinese philosophy are: 道 Dao (the Way, or one's doctrine) 德 De (virtue, power) 理 Li (principle) 氣 Qi (vital energy or material force) The Taiji (Great Heavenly Axis) forms a unity of the two complimentary polarities, Yin and Yang. The word Yin originally referred to a hillside facing away from the sun. Philosophically, it stands the dark, passive, feminine principle; whereas Yang (the hillside facing the sun) stands for the bright, active, masculine principle. Yin and Yang are not antagonistic, they alternate in inverse proportion to one another—like the rise and fall of a wave. Among the commonalities of Chinese philosophies are: The tendency not to view man as separate from nature. Questions about the nature and existence of a monotheistic deity, which have profoundly influenced Western philosophy, have not been important in Chinese philosophies or a source of great conflict in Chinese traditional religion. The belief that the purpose of philosophy is primarily to serve as an ethical and practical guide. The political focus: most scholars of the Hundred Schools were trying to convince the ruler to behave in the way they defended. *Source Wikipedia Link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_philosophy

  4. SOME DIFFERENCES BETWEEN TURQUOISE AND CORAL -- TURQUOISE BELIEVES METAPHYSICALLY THAT THEY'RE THE ENTIRE NETWORK OF EGOS: THE ALL -- CORAL BELIEVES THAT THE NETWORK OF PERSPECTIVES IS JUST A MODEL/A SYSTEM AND CORAL DOESN'T MISTAKE THE MAP FOR THE TERRITORY AND TAKE BEING TO BE THAT -- CORAL BELIEVES THAT BEING IS ONLY ME -- CORAL UNDERSTANDS AND BELIEVES THAT THERE'S ONLY ONE GOD AWARENESS, AND THAT EVERYTHING CHANGING THAT'S OCCURING WITHIN THAT UNCHANGING GOD AWARENESS IS AN ILLUSION/MAYA -- CORAL RESONATES WITH THE IDEA THAT: GOD, YOU, ARE THE UNCHANGING GOD AWARENESS AND THAT EVERYTHING CHANGING IS MAYA/ILLUSION/IMPERMANENT/NOT TO WORRY ABOUT -- SO CORAL IS IDENTIFYING BEING WITH GOD AWARENESS -- FOR CORAL, BEING = GOD AWARENESS -- FOR TURQUOISE, BEING = THE ALL -- THIS IS WHY I CALL TURQUOISE AND CORAL THE "METAPHYSICAL STAGES" ON THE SPIRAL BECAUSE BOTH DEFINE BEING, BUT THEY DO SO DIFFERENTLY -- AND YOU CAN SEE HOW THERE'S A SHIFT FROM THE COLLECTIVE (YIN) TO THE INDIVIDUAL (YANG) WITH TURQUOISE (YIN) MOVING TO CORAL (YANG) -- SO THE FEMININE WANTS TO MOVE TO THE MASCULINE AND THE MASCULINE WANTS TO MOVE TO THE FEMININE IN STAGES OF HIGHER AND HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS -- THE MASCULINE/FEMININE (TIN/YANG) INTEGRATION IS CENTRAL TO PERSONAL/ INTERPERSONAL DEVELOPMENT WORK -- WE SHOULD STUDY THE BALLS OFF MASCULINITY AND FEMININITY IN THIS WORK: THIS IS WHERE ENERGY SEEMS TO COMES FROM, THIS YIN/YANG MECHANISM/DYNAMIC/PROCESS/SYSTEM -- FREUD TALKED ABOUT SEXUAL ENERGY DRIVING EVERYTHING, AND THAT WAS A GOOD, ALBEIT TOO RESTRICTED INSIGHT OF A LARGER MASCULINE/ FEMININE (YIN/YANG) PROCESS THAT UNFOLDS AS WE INCREASE CONSCIOUSNESS -- THIS IS WHY YIN/YANG THEORY* IS SO FUNDAMENTAL AND USEFUL IN OUR WORK -- A MODEL/SYSTEM THAT COMES FROM CHINESE PHILOSOPHY** THAT WE CAN INCORPORATE FOR OUR USE/PURPOSES IN PERSONAL/ INTERPERSONAL DEVELOPMENT WORK *Yin Yang Theory http://thegreattao.com/html/introyingyangtheory.html **Chinese Philosophy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_philosophy
  5. STAGE TEAL TRANSCENDS THE PARADIGM OF BELIEF AND THE PARADIGM OF TRUTH
  6. TWO FOUNDATIONAL OBJECTIVES IN PERSONAL/ INTERPERSONAL DEVELOPMENT WORK Understanding and mastery of the Cognitive System (aka the Cognitive Body)* Understanding and mastery of the Emotional System (aka the Emotional Body) // *NOTE: I think Cognitive System and Emotional System sound more modern than Cognitive Body and Emotional Body, but I'm still hesitant to do a terminology shift until I sit with the language for a while. Cognitive System might have come connotations I don't want.
  7. ON NON-DUALITY Being is not capturable by concepts, even that one. Non-duality is just a model. Being is that which we allow to surprise our Minds. Our silly Mind, we can't shake it -- the Mind has long claws which penetrate deep.

  10. THE BIGGEST TRAP YOU CAN FALL INTO WHEN YOU STUDY ENLIGHTENMENT: RATIONALIZING A LOW-EFFORT LIFE I think one of the saddest things about the way Enlightenment is often taught is the notion/idea that there's some kind of conflict with Enlightenment and living a high-effort life.
  11. I appreciate your post. I think one of the saddest things about the way Enlightenment is often taught is the notion/idea that there's some kind of conflict with Enlightenment and living a high-effort life.
  12. Your energy is full of anger and blaming. I will leave you alone. I used to get triggered this way too. I fixed that in myself.
  13. Can you have an opinion and let me have mine too? I get the sense that you feel you need to squash my opinion. Again, this need for everyone to be like me. Try being the network of differences. What this does is build tolerance for pluralism and the ability to see your Ego as just one Ego among many. You don't identify as the Ego, you identify as the Network of Egos -- the All. You are all the differences. There is no real issue/problem outside of yourself.
  14. I agree 100%. Nice.
  15. I get a sense Mandy that you feel like a fish out of water sometimes, like you have few that you can relate to, and that causes you a certain feeling of being left out and you're driven to try to close that gap. I think you might be blaming this on men, but probably this issue/problem originates much closer to home. I would examine why you want/need everyone else to be like you. Could you perhaps be the network of all differences instead? Being is fine as it is right now.
