"You live with too many incompatibilities — people, places, objects, circumstances, and activities that just don’t mesh with the person you are on the inside."
When your external reality is out of sync with your inner self, your inner self will resist it.
This creates the feeling of wanting to escape your circumstances. You may feel powerless to make big changes, but deep down you’ll still sense a strong desire to “get out” and leave parts of your reality behind. You’ll fantasize about quitting your job, moving out, or ending a relationship.
"Religion is the opiate of the masses."
"Religion never did anything good for the people who died resisting its takeover."
Seriously. Stop carrying around outdated ideas. Make some room in that brain for more useful ideas.
Since Christianity is currently one of the world’s most popular religions, I’ll slant this blog post towards Christianity’s ubiquitous failings. However, you’ll find that most of these points apply equally well to other major religions (yes, even Buddhism).
"Beliefs are designed to enhance our ability to survive and they are biologically resistant to change. To change a belief you must address the survival issues connected to that particular belief."
Are you a skeptic? Always wanting proof for what you hear, see, and know? Always weighing evidence before you commit to a belief? It's very likely you are at a much higher level of consciousness then the typical person. Read more to learn why.
"From low to high, the levels of consciousness are: shame, guilt, apathy, grief, fear, desire, anger, pride, courage, neutrality, willingness, acceptance, reason, love, joy, peace, enlightenment."
An increase from one level to another will result in enormous change in your life. Positive or negative...
"What does it mean to be a Real Man today?"
A man understands and respects the power of choice. He lives a life of his own creation. He knows that life stagnates when he fails to decide and flourishes when he chooses a clear path.
When a man makes a decision, he opens the door he wants and closes the doors he doesn’t want. He locks onto his target like a guided missile. There’s no guarantee he’ll reach his target, and he knows this, but he doesn’t need such guarantees. He simply enjoys the sense of inevitability that comes from pushing the launch button.
A man doesn’t require the approval of others. He’s willing to follow his heart wherever it leads him. When a man is following his heart-centered path, it’s of little consequence if the entire world is against him.
"It’s funny that when people reach a certain age, such as after graduating college, they assume it’s time to go out and get a job. But like many things the masses do, just because everyone does it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. In fact, if you’re reasonably intelligent, getting a job is one of the worst things you can do to support yourself. There are far better ways to make a living than selling yourself into indentured servitude."
Getting a job and trading your time for money may seem like a good idea. There’s only one problem with it. It’s stupid! It’s the stupidest way you can possibly generate income! This is truly income for dummies.
