I stayed in log cabin in the Cumberland mountains for a few days recently, and while there on the bookshelf I saw this little book that had me, after a couple of hours, seriously thinking about building a log cabin for myself!

What out-of-print/circulations have any of you found that piqued interests you didn't know you had?

How does, “Define your dream and get a burning desire for its achievement” reconcile with, “Make a sigil, forget what it means before charging it, and go on with your life”?

Practice is the key to skill.

The events happening in the U.S. right now manifest a war to conquer and subjugate the minds of the people to a web of deceit and oppression.

I will take a position, and I want you all to argue the counterpoint using facts.

Here it is: America is a racist country. White privilege is real and omnipresent. People of color are oppressed by systemic racism.

The Coffee Lounge / Everyone Has a Blind Spot
« on: May 21, 2020, 12:08:30 AM »
I've been fascinated for a while with the particular section of the Johari window called the Blind Spot. It's the aspect of yourself that everyone else sees, but that you don't. We all have one. It encompasses all of our habits and perspectives that influence our decisions, and that are visible to everyone else but us.

Do you know someone to continues to think a certain way? A way that may cause more problems for them than not? And you think to yourself, if I could just make them see! We all know someone like that. Funny thing is, some of us might be that person in someone else's world. Imagine how tptb leverage this blind spot on all of us.

The more I thought about it, the more I realized that in each of our blind spot is a wealth of solutions to the problems that have most frustrated us in our lives. We create our reality, and so when we are creating a reality we don't want despite our best intentions, could it be there is something we are creating blindly that we are not aware we are creating? Therein lies a key. A key to a massive hidden door.
Let's Get Down & Dirty / To Learn is To Die

Death and rebirth are the two antithetical ingredients for the synthesis known as growth. People think of death/rebirth only in terms of reincarnation, but that's a macro scale version. On the micro scale, death/rebirth is happening all around us. When you learn something new, part of you dies and is reborn as a smarter version of yourself. The very tissues of your body are made of cells that are continually dying/being born. Digestion of food is itself the process of disintegration/reintegration. If you embrace this process of continuous death/rebirth, you can become impervious to perceived threats. You can become totally fearless.

Anyone have any specific tools or techniques that work well for them in organizing their daily life and getting things done?
I have over 10 years dealing with claims that get denied by health insurance, both public and private, and getting them to pay so that you, the insured, don't have to. Ask me anything!

Never say, "I think," "in my opinion," "imho," "to me," or the like when making an assertion or even a statement of opinion, and even if it is something of which you are not 100% certain. People think they are being tactful when they use these verbal softeners, but in reality they are undermining their own ability to cultivate certainty. The universe is built on exactitude and certainty, so if your intention is to master your life, you must learn to render your words with authority. Creator said, "Let there be light," not, "Maybe...perhaps I think--I mean, in my opinion we could use a little light, no?" It doesn't mean you have to know everything, and it's perfectly fine to admit a level of uncertainty, but be declarative in your admission. Be declarative in all your statements. You are Creator, so start talking like it.

The word "scholar" originally meant "leisure" because only those who could afford not to work for a living had the time and means to pursue general knowledge. Nowadays, with the internet, we may not all have a ton of time, but we definitely have the means to continually educate ourselves about virtually any subject. Use this thread to post recommendations, or post requests if there is anything specific you are looking for.

I highly recommend The Modern Scholar audio series, particularly Michael D.C. Drout's section on language and grammar. He has a wonderful way of inserting humor into an otherwise dry subject.
