In the NBA commentators sometimes clown on dudes like why is this giant guy trying to dribble up the court or why is this little guy trying to post up. They are basically saying to stay in your lane, stay doing what you’re good at. “Build on your strengths.”
In business you try to get an all around game, like try to be good at production and sales and marketing etc all at the same time. And in business books they game you in each of these areas. But I’m finding out that it’s just not super practical. Jack of all trades, master of none.
Recently I told myself to chill on everything and just make pages everyday. That’s what I’m good at, editing photos for publication. I’m just gonna do that right now for January and February at least. I ended up making 1 book over 1000 pgs and 2 books each at 116 pgs, that’s the Cellybrain book and 2 future issues of Hamburger Eyes.
I am now seeing that everything else kind of falls into place. Actually scratch that, it’s more like nothing else really matters. Feeling unlocked. Maybe you do too. It’s been a crazy February.
Frequency precedes reality.
There’s an episode of Shark Tank where Mr. Wonderful is going off again on someone and says something along the lines of, “The difference between you and us is that we think of our dollars as soldiers. We send our soldiers out with a mission not only to come back home but to also bring back a fallen soldier. You just send your soldiers out to die.”
As a business owner I feel this. We spend money to make products hoping no one dies in the process.
I’m thinking the same about time. We use up our time with thoughts feelings and actions. Can we invest our time better by putting all thoughts feelings and actions on a purposeful mission? Yes.
Unleash your dimensionality. You have explored the outer perspectives and you have explored the inner perspectives. You now run on a new operating system that utilizes all perspectives at once. A multi-locational expanded consciousness is settling in. Timelines can now be navigated, the grid has been translated, the matrix has been solved. All is vibration.
A quote from Kappy – What is paradise? This moment right now. What is hell? Wanting it to be any different.
I think the main message gets lost sometimes when speaking about spirituality topics. The main message is that we are all here trying to do our best and enjoy our time while here. If we can appreciate that, then we can appreciate each other in all our shared struggles and victories.
It’s a heavy time in LA right now with the news of Kobe’s death. He has his faults as we all do, some much worse than others, sure. Sometimes we are villains and sometimes we are heroes, but all the time we are humans and life can be very short.
Still thinking about this idea of detachment a lot. Detachment, allowing, and flow versus resistance, blocks, and entanglements.
We know about letting go of baggage from the past, but the idea of letting go of the future is interesting. It’s not so much about the question of future plans maybe being the wrong plans. It’s more about letting the future unfold in a way greater than you could have imagined. Sure you have your effort and goals and habits, but now you have more freedom to your flow. And less stress.
From a 5th dimensional point of view, if we cut off the back end of our timeline and then cut off the front end, we are now just a dot. As a dot we can hop on any other potential timeline we choose and then keep hopping if we want. There really are no limits.
We have all done this. I still do it sometimes. I set in my mind an ideal mate. Almost instantly as I meet a single girl a checklist runs off in my head. Proceed? Nah? Either way the moment is now spoiled and she has run off.
I think this applies to all aspects of life. We are married to potential outcomes. We need to have a divorce. This is why we have running shoes but don’t go running. We are married to this ideal of perfect health, we think about it too much and by the time it’s go time we don’t wanna do shit. We discouraged ourselves on accident. This is where procrastination and laziness are born.
Since we know that health is really more about lifestyle change then we can let go of “perfection.” It becomes about effort and that’s when things start to happen. Same for money. Same for relationships.
This doesn’t mean ditch goals, I think it means hitting goals is a balance of effort and enjoying the moment by letting go. I think this is why so many business people preach failure. “Fail quick.” They can’t wait for you to fail. Sure, it is about learning from results and not having fear, but now I see that it’s also about freeing yourself from limitations of your own mind.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein
I think I already posted this quote more than once but my ideas have since changed about it. When I first read this, I related to it as the gap between present moment and a goal or a desired particular future. Then naturally, you zoom out by changing your level of thinking/awareness/consciousness and try to look at the problem from multiple angles.
Nowadays, I think that’s only part of it. Yes you have to zoom out and explore perspectives from above, but more importantly, you have to zoom in. Way in. Past your attitudes and actions, past your thoughts and feelings, and into the subconscious.
Bonus feature : exploration of the subconscious leads to access of the cosmic consciousness.
A lot of books talk about mirrors. How our external reality is a reflection of our internal reality. There is a cycle that we can analyze. We see the mirror, assess it, and then have a feeling about it. We see the estimate of a car repair, we check our bank balance, then frustration occurs. Or, we stand on a scale, realize we’re 15 lbs heavier than last year, then frustration again.
This is where we then take action. We can’t change the mirror, so we make sure there’s emergency money in the bank, adopt a new healthier lifestyle, etc. We are making adjustments according to the info in the mirror. This is our natural understanding of it and how we go about our daily business.
Let’s label it up like this. See the mirror – have thoughts, react to the mirror – have feelings, attempt to change the image in the mirror – take action. Ready, aim , fire.
The real change is to switch up the cycle. Have the feeling first, take action, then have the thought. This is proactive rather than reactive. Aim, fire, ready. This is why there are so many books on being in this now moment, focus, habits, affirmations, etc. It is about micro managing and optimizing what you are feeling at all times.
If you really start “feeling” as a healthy person would (even though you are not yet), you start “being” that person and adopt the lifestyle. This makes real change stick. It is an identity shift. Actions of eating better and exercise begin to occur naturally. Over time you notice it.
Rather than you adjusting to the reflection of the mirror as before, the reflection of the mirror has now adjusted to you. The only thought therefore is gratitude and eagerness for more.
We cannot win a war against reality, we can only create a new reality.
