Happy Christmas by the way
And it's so fucking hilarious, that almost anything I learned so far about spirituality has proved to be true in experience. I almost cried when I thought about what human potential there is, ALL PROBLEMS could be solved and just nobody knows about it. I'm sure there will come a HUGE change in some years. And I'm not only talking about when the financial system proves itsself again to be a fallacy. I mean a change in Consciousness, what Osho calls Zorba the Buddha.
I think I'll do some more clarifying posts about this stuff, to show that it's not spooky stuff and that it does not have to make you go mad.
Doing inner game, I also noticed how fucked up I am myself. When you realize that getting guilty, ashamed, proud and so on are just distortions of truth, and actually fuck you up, because they are not even needed. You literally take on a higher perspective and from then on it makes no sense to go back. Why are they not needed? Because it's not you feeling guilty, ashamed, proud, etc. It's your ego. Most people don't care they think it's just the way it is and dandle themselves in neutrality. But we're here to go to the next level right? It's not enough to work 9-5 at a boring job, or have unsatisfying relationships. It's about being the very best you can be.
And when I get to know something I post it, assumed I'll get the shit handled
So happy holidays and don't stop growing.

Right after that I did the Awareness watching Awareness Method additionally and fell asleep while doing it. When I woke up I saw a small light with darkness around it. Don't know if it's the light all the scriptures talk about. However this state did not feel like hypnosis or like a lucid dream. Don't know what to think about it though.
Well, it's cool experiencing such stuff when you just tried it out for the first time. I'm excited what's about to come and if I'm able to love myself under any circumstances all the time.

1. Identify the Conflict
- How did I invite this into my life? What role did I play?
1- See the events through my own eyes
2- See the events from the other person's eyes – Empathy
Try to imagine the background of that person. Try to imagine what that person was taught as a child. Try to imagine the day or week that person was going through, and what kind of bad things had happened to that person. Try to imagine the mood and state of mind that person was in — the suffering that person must have been going through to mistreat you that way. And understand that their action was not about you, but about what they were going through.
3- See the events from the outside observer perspective -> Objectivity
3. Practical Lessons
What are the practical lessons that I need to learn from this experience?
What will I do differently next time?
4. The World is Your Mirror
What aspects of myself are being reflected back to me? Be brutally honest.
Look at the chakras...
- Red: Did I take care of my body?
- Orange: Was I needy?
- Yellow: Did I put up with crap? Did I give away my power?
- Green: Did I accept myself fully and allow myself to feel loved?
- Blue: Did I speak my truth at all times?
- Indigo: Did I live in the NOW, or did I dwell on past or future events? Did I take response-ability?
5. Release Blame
This is easy when I realize that I am not a victim. I am an active participant in this, and I chose this experience in order to learn from it.
Don't just see the person - look at the SOUL. There is a Soul inside that body and it is here, just like I am, learning the tough lessons of love and life. IF I ever see this person again, will I be able to be KIND to them? Can I be kind to this person from a distance? Can I be kind to them in my mind? HOW will I be kind to them? WHEN will I be kind to them?
Pray: "God, I ask you to forgive the ego for the (anger, resentment, positionalities, addictions to drama, neediness, etc.) and I now ask for healing and your Divine Grace. I also ask that you Bless this 'other person' with your Presence. Thank You. Thy Will Be Done."
You should be feeling a surge of compassion and gratitude for the other person involved in the conflict/contract. You should now be viewing this experience as a GIFT. If not, then go back through the steps and start over. It may take a few times to get to the lessons you need. If you are not getting the lessons that you need, simply rake the feelings out of your body, Bubble the whole thing and trust the Universe to send you the appropriate people, situations and contexts that will help you increase your awareness.
This is a small résumé of the 5DC Compassion formula created by Stephane from ideagasms.

2. Apply an attitude of silence and tempo and work alone. A dead silent environment is a sure bet. Then always try to do your work a little faster, move out of your comfort zone. And do this by your own and not in groups. You should only specifically seek out questions, this won't slow down your accomplishments.
3. Limit tasks to the important to shorten work time. This is referred to as the 80/20 Principle or Pareto's law. It says that from 20% of your invested time flows 80% of the results. That's an insane ratio and often it is more. So make it a taks to find out where to apply it. In case of need do brainstorming.
4. Shorten work time to limit tasks to the important (Parkinson's law). Setting deadlines is a must, but don't bullshit yourself. You must set real deadlines that increase your speed at least 200%.
5. Always visualize what you will get out of changing a certain habit. Look at how your live is going be in 5-10 years from now when you stick to a goal or settle for comfort. Seeing the results directly will have a huge impact and boost motivation. There's no holding back when you can see that you can enjoy abundant relationships instead of spending hours for hours in front of the TV.
6. Separate the truly important tasks from the merely urgent. And always choose the important one.
7. Delegate as much tasks as possible. Give yourself rewards, like a massage, a new LCD Screen or whatever. And apply a 30 day trial for difficult goals.
8. Always work on your production capacity. Stephen Covey calls it the "sharpen your saw" habit. It's important that you also learn how to learn faster. You can try speed reading, photoreading, memorization stuff, speed typing and so on, depending on what you're doing.
9. Resolve all stupid or inefficient habits like checking the mail everyday, visiting the same blogs or websites again and again, taking a nap and the daily hour TV. And replace it wit heffective ones. Daily routine is key!
10. Keep the balance: Exercise at least 4 times a week and socialize at least 3 times a week if it's possible. This keeps your mind fresh and is no rocket sience.
11. Do it now! Recite this phrase over and over until you’re so sick of it that you cave in and get to work.

If you really want to get a handle of the level of conscioussness I would advise you to read the whole Hawkins Book series, because there's a lot of stuff which has to be understood. I'll probably post some more stuff when I have some realizations, or find some striking points, but otherwise this would be just too much.
But for those of you who are interested here's the map:
But now I want to share with you a list from the book Power vs Force which makes a major distinction between strong and weak energy patterns. Depending on who you think you are, your life view and so on, you delevop a certain Motivation which controls your thinking, attitudes, behavior, habits and character and vice versa. You can say that these energy patterns are greater than you, like natural forces who are manipulated only very indirectly by you; at least they are not obivous for the average human being. The ability to differentiate between high and low energy patterns is a matter of perception and discrimination that most of u learn by painful trial and error. Failure, suffering and eventual sickness reult from the influence of weak patterns. Success, happiness, and health proceed from powerful attractor patterns.
Weak energy patterns calibrate lower than 200 (This is the level of integrity where real power first appears) which basically means that they are destructive to life and overly egoistic or narcissistic. People who are in this range are generally unable to be honest, because shame, guilt, apathy, fear, desires, anger and pride are too dominant for their low self-esteem to overcome. But that's just one thing, they may be unpleasant to be around in many other ways; they take more energy from society than they reciprocate. But because there are many states of consciousness in a single human being, this list can be very helpful for you to determine in which area of life you are working against nature.
Reflection on the many contrasting pairs of qualities can initiate a consciousness-raising process, so that one gradually becomes aware of patterns operating in relationships, business affairs, and all various interactions that make up the fabric of life.
Note: But be careful, the words represent their true meaning. Patriotic for example calibrates high, because it is an act of love. But it's not comparable with the american "patriotism" which is indeed nationalistic and thus fundamentalistic. The dots divide first the strong and then the weak patterns.

Uhhghh, I'm really starting to fall in love with this country. There are so many people everywhere, the culture is just cool and the chinese girls are very cute. I just arrived back home and thought I'd share some pics. It was the most packed trip I've ever done. I think there was one day I travelled by bus, train, boat and plane. I did not do many "cool" shots, because I was not in charge of the camera. When you take 1400 pictures and videos that's actually not a bad thing ;-). But at least you get some impressions of what's goin' on there. And yes I ate it all ;-).
