Advice to self:
Get into the habit, each and every day, of asking, “How can I DO more? How can I DO better?” Never ask, “How can I BE more” or “How can I BE better?” What we do, what we have, and even what we look like, was never meant to define us. We will never be more, or be better, than we are RIGHT NOW. Our TRUE WORTH, our TRUE VALUE, never changes.
I believe there is a MASSIVE difference between WHAT we are and WHO we identify as while in these human bodies.
Do you look for OUTSIDE sources for significance, worth, and value, or do you choose to realize it was manifested in complete perfection, through YOU, from the very day you were born into this body?
You are a PERFECTED BEING, inhabiting an imperfect, physical form, for the purpose of EXPERIENCE, GROWTH, and EXPANSION. We are all spiritual entities, star dust, perfect and exalted, equally valuable, having been formed from the same materials and energy, being blessed with a very HUMAN and TEMPORARY experience.
”We are consciousness, expressing itself.” -Deepak Chopra
When you look in the mirror, do you really think that is YOU staring back at you? HELL NO!!! You are simply using this body, and those eyes, as a temporary tool, to have this human experience THROUGH. This body is on loan, to be used as WE decide, and as WE see fit, to create our own, personal, unique, life experience, the way WE want to experience it. Of all the world’s creations, our free-agency is among the most valuable.
Why not fully optimize everything about this life experience, and truly enjoy it to it’s fullest capacity and potential. The question to ask then becomes: HOW? How does one fully optimize this life experience, in EVERY WAY POSSIBLE? The answer is different for us all, though there are keystone habits which benefit EVERYONE willing to adopt them.
This life is a simulation, and our bodies are the simulator. This life is a VIRTUAL REALITY EXPERIENCE, and our bodies are our own, personalized, uniquely upgrade-able, virtual reality suits. Life is like a video game.
It is through HIGHER THINKING that we are able to vibrate on a higher frequency, thereby manufacturing and producing the energy we need to ACT ON A HIGHER LEVEL, and live on a higher plane. Time is limited. The most effective, efficient tools are important to discover, and pass along, to our loved ones. The earlier, the better, but we must remember, we are EXACTLY where we need to be in THIS moment, for us to allow the Universe to conspire on our behalf IN EVERY WAY, every moment of our existence.
LIFE IS LIKE A VIDEO GAME.
I am PAC MAN. I am part of a simple game. I run around, gobbling up nuggets of wisdom, and useful tools, which slowly and consistently amass into incredible amounts of wealth, naturally empowering me with the strength and experience required to sometimes eat my enemies, and periodically LEVEL UP.
I have to keep moving, adjusting, pivoting, and repositioning myself on the game board, in order to outrun and outwit my ghosts, all the while setting those ghosts AND myself up for MY success, as well as their demise. I am constantly learning new patterns of success from my many failures. I quickly adapt to any environment or new game board patterns, becoming increasingly aware of the patterns and habits of my enemies, while implementing and automating the patterns and habits which will guarantee my own success.
I show others how I have failed, hoping they will learn from my mistakes, avoiding the traps and pitfalls I have fallen prey to. I show others the moves which have resulted in leveling up, in hopes that they, too, will level up, and learn from my successes, not needing to experience the negative results of poor, less optimal decisions. I devour the wisdom and knowledge of others who have failed and won at the game, empowering myself, and those who are interested, to win more often, continuously level up, and eventually play a whole new, much more expansive and complex game, with far more impressive graphics, missions, tools, weapons, and levels to unlock.
All of my losing AND winning moves in the game are shared at www.goodinthehead.com
IT’S TIME TO LEVEL UP…
TOGETHER IS BETTER.
MULTIPLAYER GAMES ALLOW US ALL TO ACHIEVE GREATER HEIGHTS, MUCH MORE QUICKLY.
It is through sharing information with others, and obtaining as much information FROM others, as possible, and also sharing THAT, that the BIG games are played. This is how campaigns are won, and EXPONENTIAL GROWTH takes place.
This life is like a video game. We struggle, we fail, we gain experience, then we LEVEL UP. We unlock new tools and potentials. Through the most difficult parts of the game, we can hand the controller to our friend who already beat the level (parents, teachers, mentors) and they can SHOW US HOW, then hand the controller back and let us keep going. WARNING: STAY AWAY FROM CHEAT CODES! They are fun and entertaining, but that is ALL they are-flashy, distracting fun that keeps us away from the main goal, which is BEATING THE GAME, consistently improving, and moving on to learn other lessons, massive skill-acquisition through consistent repetition and practice, and beat other games. Some cheat codes I have been distracted by, losing precious time during this games countdown: Food, drugs, too much alcohol, pornography, over indulgence in sexual practices, too much television, and well, hell, my list goes on and on.
While it is important to have fun along the way, and not take things TOO seriously, the fact remains that this game has a timer that started the day we were born, and while ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY, all play and no work makes Jack into a lazy, emotionally dulled, incapable, skill-less, enabled, weak, untrustworthy, eventually depressed, jobless, POS, living on mommy’s couch, enjoying the distractions of cheat codes and not living a meaningful, purpose-filled, intentional life of beauty and wonder he deserves to!!
The clock is ticking. What are you going to focus on today to win YOUR game and be and do YOUR very best?
In this video, from the 7 minute, 45 second mark, until the 28 minute, 30 second mark, this video explains IN EXACT DETAIL the probability that we are, “EARTH ROVERS,” and that this life is a simulation similar to a video game, and our bodies are literally a Virtual Reality suit. This scientist explains it so well, and makes it so fun and easy to understand, that I can’t help but share this and listen to it again and again:
Here are some interesting videos I came across after researching and writing this article:
There is a definite MIND, BODY, SOUL connection.
Neuro: Referring to the mind or brain, particularly regarding how states of mind (and body) affect communication and behavior. NLP teaches a structural way of viewing mind and body states, developing mental maps that show how things happen and how to change course.
Linguistic: Meaning that our mind and body states are revealed in our language and non-verbal communication. Language is the tool we use to gain access to the inner workings of the mind. Neuro-linguistic programming language patterns teach us how to access unconscious information that would remain vague and unknowable otherwise.
Programming: This refers to the capacity to change our mind and body states. You’ve heard the term living on autopilot, right? To someone trained in NLP, this would mean that you are living according to your programming, which consists of habitual thoughts, feelings, reactions, beliefs, and traditions. Someone trained in neuro-linguistic programming knows how such programs are structured in the mind and how to access them through conversation (language) so that outdated programs and autopilot behaviors can be changed.
