A Follow-Up to the “Gentle Reply” Post

I’ve so many requests to add more substance to the A “Gentle” Reply to How to Love Yourself.

The Gentle Persuasion to “Love Yourself” is a good technique, because it is not an easy thing to do.

But just asking if it is “better to Love Yourself than hate yourself” is an easily answered question….Of Course!

So let’s run with that…why is it so hard to Love Oneself?

Because we have done so many “wrong” things…and people have let us know about it…many times.

So if you think about what they said to you, was it reality, or did you have a different perspective on it.

I would say most of the time you did.

That means that they weren’t inside your head…they were inside theirs…and judging you from there.

So if they don’t know your motivations and reasons why you acted in a certain way, why did you give any credence to their criticism?

The answer is, “I don’t know. Hmmmm.”

The second reason why it’s so hard to Love Yourself is that Your MIND is telling you “bad” things. Just listen to it for awhile…Like:

  • Boy you didn’t sleep very well last night. You are tired.
  • Why are you are hungry? You so fat and useless.
  • Why don’t you get up and do something?

Those are just some examples from my Mind?

Yours are probably similar…or worse!

So, how about using the same technique as listening to others?

Your mind is coming from a different perspective than you are!!!

Wait, my mind is me!!!

Is it? Do you agree with what it is saying?

I don’t really accept that I am Fat and Useless!

So your mind is not really You!!!

You are separate from it.

So what is YOU?

You are a “Spiritual Creator with a Spark of Divinity.”

That’s the REAL You, and the best reason to Love Yourself!!!

There is NO Tomorrow!

This the follow up to “Today is the Day.”

Since it’s always Today, how can there be Tomorrow?

It never comes, so never exists. It’s all in our mind…

and we live there…wishing for things to be different.

Also the past is our memories…which we remember only in our Present.

So if there is only the Present, why can’t we change the past?

We can…if we perceive it differently.

You say but it happened that way. Ahh, that is your perception. Ask someone else about it and they will have a different perspective.

So change your memory!

It might be a bad one, but think about what that experience taught. Most of the time it’s “I’ll never do that again.”

That’s a great lesson, but have you done that again? Are you stuck doing it over and over?

If so, you are in your past. What a crappy way to live!

Change the memory to, “Maybe this was a good thing…looking back at it.”

So, next time that memory comes up, you just say, “Thanks, I know that one…it was for the best.

Now you associate a good feeling with it, so your evil mind doesn’t want to bring it up again.

This is a constant process, and soon “the devil will leave you for a more opportune time.” He’s not going away. He is licking his wounds, and looking for another to attack you.

This strategy works…most of the time, but he will always come up with a new way to get you…and you can always counteract him with a new one of your own.

It comes from you knowing that everything can be changed…or recreated…and that’s one of the things we were created for!!!

More tricks for you are coming!!!

Lots of engagement lately

Someone seems to have gotten ahold of this blog lately and told their friends, because there have been an almost overwhelming number of comments lately.

They comment but never respond to my replies, and the English is rather strange, but I’ll take it.

Now is the time to watch my pride. In other words to begin to believe what other people say about me.

They can put you on a pedestal, and make you seem bigger than you are.

It’s really hard to see who you are then, and you begin to Love Yourself because of what others say about you.

That’s not true self love. A lot of famous people get caught up in it, and end up on drugs or dead.

So there are different kinds of Loving Yourself.

Do the good kind.

And if you need help…respond to this post or at vsalzer@vincesalzer.com!

Thanks

I Had an Honest Moment the Other Day

The thought came to me that No One wanted to hear what I have been saying for the past 6 or 7 years!

That I had to admit I was speaking into the wind. And I was not relevant.

It was a very honest and revealing moment…

And it was very depressing…for a couple of days. I searched for answers.

You see, I am trying to “monetize” my thoughts into a coaching business.

My goal is to have my thoughts generate resonance with people that want to “pay” for my thoughts.

Honestly, do people really do that?

Not really.

They pay for things that help them.

So why aren’t the things I have been writing helping people?

Maybe I am coming from the wrong place, because I am not doing what I say…namely realizing that I am Loved, Loving Myself and Finding My Dream!

Maybe when I do that, people will then begin to “listen”

But, by my principles, it doesn’t matter if they listen…or want to pay me for my “wisdom.”

My responsibility and accountability is to Love Myself and to Finding MY Dream!

The question is…How do I keep from starving then?

Somebody once said you can have the best and most wisest content, but if no one knows about it, you will starve!

So can I really say that I have told enough people to find any that resonate with what I am saying.

Obviously not!

I mean, if I am just writing my thoughts for myself…no problem…but who really does that? They say things to others to have an effect…to affect change. But it’s a fine line to effect others and not try to control them.

This is a conundrum!

 

 

 

Some Good Sayings I Saw.

2k a day keeps the J. O. B. away.

Be Yourself…Everyone else is already taken

Are you contributing to civic enlightenment and national harmony?

Let everyone sweep in front of his own door, and the whole world will be clean.

I am keeping busy with my own broom.

Am I waiting for someone else to do what I know to be right?

Is this problem my fault?

How truthful am I?

Is Jesus my answer, or the excuse that I am failing?

Do I truly Love Myself? What feedback do I get when I say, “I Love Myself?” Do I actually listen?

What would happen if I did Love Myself?

Would I still be in the situation I’m in?

What’s the Plan…For Your Life?

Ya…Really…

What is your Plan..Your Dream?

Do you have one?

Have you thought about it?

Maybe you should put some time into thinking about it.

Like how you would want to live.

Not just get up in the morning way before you want to, and go someplace you don’t really like and do things you don’t really want to for someone you don’t really like.

Like really think about it.

What do you want?

Are you afraid of Your Power?

Is that why?

Because if you admit that, you will begin to access things that you can’t even imagine.

Then there’s no one else to blame, and there’s no one else to congratulate when you actually move forward in accomplish it.

If you really think about it, there isn’t anyone out there for you to please, or even could satisfy, so why don’t you try satisfying yourself for once?

I know thins is tough, but that’s what I do.

Teach that You are Loved, You CAN Love Yourself, and Find Your Dream.

Sometimes it takes someone to tell you that in no uncertain terms.

So let’s start with a Plan

Call me…701-850-0560.

And let’s get started!

 

 

Deal With It!

Deal with what?

Whatever is bothering you!

Whatever is holding you back?

“They” are called Traumas by many people.

Why?

Because those are the things that keep you from growing, evolving, ascending…

from Finding Your Dream!!!

So what are Traumas?

They are misinterpretations of experiences, or memories. Those wrong judgements have negative emotions attached to them, and raise a flight, fight or freeze reaction in your primitive brain.

That’s what keeps you Stuck!

The judgement of the experience!

Remember, memory is experienced in the present. You bring it back up and that’s where it affects you. If it stayed in the past…on the shelf…it wouldn’t be a problem.

Our mind keeps bringing them though, because we attached an emotion, an importance to them.

It becomes a Trauma whenfear, guilt and shame become attached to it.

This builds a construct, a matrix, which means it can be looked at, evaluated and even discarded for a new interpretation…which forms a new matrix.

I would like to think that we can live “outside the Matrix,” but we can’t. We need have structure to be able to have tables, chairs, beliefs and the possibility of growth.

So we reconstruct those Traumas into beneficial things we learn from and set back on the shelf, with no emotion tied to them.

It would be nice not to have any emotions, but memories are where emotions come from, so one will always have them, but we can greatly reduce their affects.

We can use the technique of saying, “I know that happened”…or rather…”Thank you for bringing that up again. You brought it up for a reason. What can I learn from it?”

Once you get an intuition why it’s there and what can be learned, you can set it back on the shelf.

You can’t eliminate of memories, so they can only be put back in the database. You do that and lower their importance. If they come up again, it means you can learn more from them. Then they go back and sit there. You just keep doing that over and over.

The process is letting the memories come up, thanking them, learning from them and categorizing their importance.

Most of them happened long ago, and really have nothing to do with the way you are today?

I have a very charged memory of spraining my ankle when I was a teenager. It surprised me and hurt so bad. I was running with wet shoes on a guy floor. It was my first experience with intense pain, so a quick and negative emotion was attached to it. I still shudder to this day when it comes back up. I need to see what I can still learn from it. One thing is to be able to deal with surprising and painful experiences, and knowing I will make a judgement about life because of it. I have been living in fear of having new and potentially negative experiences. They could just as easily been positive too, but I judge…construct…my perspective based on that first experience! (I am discovering some of this just by writing about it…a reason to write your thoughts down. They become “concrete” and it’s harder for the memory to assert influence over you, because you have dealt with it.)

The lesson is: “Don’t Do That.” LOL! (The answer for everything!) Also be aware of your environment. Learn the beneficial way to react with it.  Also, that it happened so long ago that it has nothing to do with my present experience, but it surely does affect it.

But it still brings up a shuddering reaction, and I must deal with it on a consistent basis. Maybe just writing this will release it more so that I can look at it every time it comes up, learn from it and consciously release it.

When you truly learn everything you need to know about it, and, then commit to acting differently…being in a different state…taking a different perspective…the Trauma resides.

This must be a big subject since I already wrote 700 words about it.

These emotions…perspectives…developed matrix’s…can be deep seated…like a death or divorce…and can be hard to deal with. Just letting the experience resurface can elicit so much trauma that we can’t do it.

It then just stays beneath the surface…sometimes deeply buried…that we don’t even recognize they are there. Those are the ones affect us the most, but we work on the ones we can.

Once we learn how to deal with Traumas that are at the surface, the deeper ones will be able to come up.

We have to deal with them from the Matrix of I Am Loved, (Nothing can separate me from the Love of God! My parents Love me just like I Love my children…unconditionally!)

And because of that…I can Love Myself. Also, I am a created, eternal spirit by that God that Loves Me…ultimately and unconditionally!

That I am worth it…worthy…deserving…powerful, and able to Deal With It!

So we start from the Point of Love and deal with what comes up from That Construct!

Since Nothing can separate me from Love, I can deal with Pain, Fear…Trauma…anything.

I form my New Reality.

I call it Finding My Dream!

 

 

You Will Never Ascend Until You Deal With Your Stuff!

We all have traumas, fears and guilt that limits our growth.

We all want to ascend or, at least, evolve, grow until we are ready.

We must truly Love Ourselves to let go of all of them, and cannot do it without Love.

I had an experience with a greater power. It put me on the floor, unable to breathe. It said to me, “This is only the slightest movement of my little finger. You cannot handle my power.”

I learned that you must rise up, and become that person that you know you can be!

That entails being accountable, admitting your fears, and dealing with those feelings and experiences that seem to overwhelm you.

You do that by realizing and repeating that you are not those traumas. That you are Loved, and You Love Yourself. You are a created, never ending spirit. That is Your True Self.

Then you rise in Your Power!

 

What DO You Want This New “Normal” to Look Like?

So I’ve been talking about change in this time of crisis.

But many people just want it to back to the way it was. But do they?

They have and will experience a Great Depression as our Grandparents did. It fundamentally changed their mindset. They experienced hardship like we can’t even imagine.

My mother grew up using water from a cistern, and it got pretty rank by the end of the summer. Can you imagine…they had to drink it…and they survived!

Survive is the crucial word here.

I think everyone is now thinking about the next catastrophe, and what they are going to do…have more toilet paper on hand that’s for sure!!

I’ve been saying create the new world, by going inside, realizing You Are Loved, then Loving Yourself and Finding Your Dream.

But what does that Dream look like?

I had to think about it..really think about it.

What would it look like?

Well I have been doing lots of research on various options, but let’s just go back to the general mindset.

It will be…as I said…in the back of everyone’s minds…”When will be the next one, and what will it be like?

Will there be food? Do I have to stay inside again? How about power and water?

We are beginning to think about how do I SURVIVE!

Well I better learn how to grow my own food, get my own source of power and water.

I better learn how to protect myself!!!

And, you know, that life sucking job in a cubicle in front of a computer no longer seems so important.

Actually I kinda liked not having to deal with the traffic, the stress, the long hours with no time for myself and my family!

Maybe I want to think about something I can do for myself and screw the boss…who has been screwing me for the last 20 plus years.

I’m sure there will be some of that….maybe a lot…since there are a lot of people who are beginning to think something is wrong in the matrix.

And it won’t take many to “disconnect” that will fundamentally change this world.

The other thing is that people are going to think twice about going out on the weekends to shop, party and generally spend their paychecks. They are going to become rainy day savers….just in case.

Suddenly, all the trinkets, bright lights and flashing signs won’t have the intended effect. They will buy what they need, probably meet with friends and go home and think about ways to prepare!!!

Some will really think and believe where we have been lied to…get up go to work and don’t think about anything.

New ways of doing things will emerge. New energy sources, and the expanding of alternate ones will manifest. It will bring in the greatest invention and innovation ever seen.

Yes the latest iPhone doesn’t seem so important now, does it? How about that 60 inch TV, or new game, or the latest fashion, or doing things to make other people like you?…probably not!

Learning how to plant a garden, have some chickens, dig a well, and buy that generator now come to the top of the list.

Gathering your family around you now seems important. Your children come back to live with you or in the home town and start to work doing things that matter…like fix infrastructure, return local manufacturing and power generation.

It will be a new world!!!

Think about how you would really like it?

What “job” you would really like?

What you would really like to create?

How you would want to “Pursue Happiness!”

What you can do to experience greater Love?

And we can go down the Rabbit Hole from Here!

A New Paradigm!

Doug Casey, an anarcho-capitalist, says that the State is a “Parasite on Society.”

The members of society are becoming less individually responsible, and, therefore, the country has to be held by force.

That is the basis for government to take more and more control…the lack of self responsibility!!!

Once people are responsible for themselves, government becomes mostly unnecessary.

The only thing government is good for is protect You from coercion within inside the countries borders and from other countries…the police and the military…and a court system to adjudicate disputes without resorting to coercion…which might include arbitration.

The current system is only marginally competent in providing these services, and tries to do almost everything else conceivable!

That is why I keep talking about Loving Yourself. If you Love Yourself, you will become honest with yourself and others. Your main concern is your self growth…becoming accountable.

It’s the way to Finding Your Dream!
