What is in your way of getting to abundance, to a life worth living?See footnote 1

People, normally, want some miracle potion, lotion, energy treatment, belief erasure, mind movies, vision boards, and many other things that they hope will give them abundance.

Or they are waiting to feel like doing something, maybe courage?

But where they don’t look is where they have power… the root cause of their scarcity, their misery, their life.


There is reasonable fear and unreasonable fear.

But you don’t know the difference. You don’t want to be present to your fear, because…

Why, really?

Because if you got really present, if you brought your capacities to observe the fear, to see what it’s suggesting you need to protect, you would see that it is not reasonable.

I mean you can say “I am afraid that I am less smart than I fancy myself to be” and assign reason to that, but that is an excuse, not a reason.

One of the hallmarks of a low vibration person is using words inaccurately.

Reason is primarily “the power of the brain to think, understand, and form judgments by a process of logic”

Of course dictionary will put the cultural meaning first: a cause, explanation, or justification for an action or event, which means to you and me that the dictionary’s truth value is as low as 10%… dictionary’s clarity score is 10%… ugh.

So if we look at the main meaning of the word “reason” then what we are going to do is look what is underneath the marker feeling that we call fear.

All emotions are marker feelings…

All emotions are marker feelings… meaning, some word or words are associated with the emotion, some words arise BEFORE the emotion… in a way causing the emotion. They are inseparable the word and the emotion: they go together like the front of your hand and the back of your hand… ALWAYS arising together.

So your behavior, when it doesn’t lead to abundance, comes from some word or words.

The job is to find the words. You call these beliefs, but there is no such thing as beliefs. There are only words and marker feelings that tell you to do or not do something.

The dictionary meaning of fear, 7% truth value, is: fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.

“Through every generation of the human race there has been a constant war, a war with fear. Those who have the courage to conquer it are made free and those who are conquered by it are made to suffer until they have the courage to defeat it, or death takes them.”~ Alexander the Great

Everyone is afraid. Fear is normal. Even irrational fear is normal: we live in a culture of words, and certain thoughts foster fear (marker feeling!)

People who seem fearless have a different relationship to fear than you: they see the fear, but they don’t stop there.

So what do they do? They start using their reason, their sechel (Hebrew word for reason)… their brain.

And they evaluate the pro and the con… act on the fear, or act on something else, and then they do it.

If you are gripped in fear, it pretty much means to me that your willingness to reason, ability to reason, habit to reason is not available to you.


I didn’t say stupid, even though you act stupid. You may have a brain that can be trained to reason… but you haven’t and won’t.

So what am I saying? Is it fear that stops you from going for abundance or not?

Fear never stops anyone. You stop you. And you use fear as a justification, as an excuse.

You always have either your excuses or your results. There is no third option.

So can fear be attacked, transformed, changed, tamed directly? No, I don’t think so.

I say that unless you start increasing your capacity to think, to reason, you’ll remain slave to fear.

My reclaim coaching using the 67 steps program as a backbone, is a workable way to increase your intellectual, mental capacities… It works if you work it. If you do it the way you do everything, then it won’t do you sh*t… pardon my French.

OK, as I was writing this article, I had some questions to All-Knowledge, aka Source. I asked about the major religions.

Here are my answers:

The root level of any human, any living thing, of any world view is desire… the main motive power for any action.

The desire can be a desire for the self alone, and a desire for the sake of sharing.

Desire for the self alone is underneath all the ugly feelings, fear, hate, greed.

Look at which religions have holy wars… their desire for the self alone creates hate. The hate of anyone having a different world view.

Christianity, Islam, Hinduism… are based and rooted in hate.
All the other major religions I can think of are based on the desire for the sake of sharing.

I asked about Hitler… and the Third Reich was based on not hate, as one would expect, but on greed. (greed=intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth, power, or food.)

It is mental slothfulness that keeps you in scarcity.

My favorite non-fiction book is Wallace D. Wattles’ The Science of Getting Rich.

Millions of people have read it. Everyone takes out of it what they can hear… almost no one takes out that unless they beat mental slothfulness, the whole thing, the science, won’t work.

Here is a quote from the book:

The individual worker, however, is not held down by the ignorance or the mental slothfulness of his class; he can follow the tide of opportunity to riches…


…the trusts can keep men in so called hopeless conditions only so long as there are men who are too ignorant to know of the science of getting rich, or too intellectually slothful to practice it.

Although Wallace D Wattles, at the beginning of the last century, wrote this book about money, everything he says in it is applicable to health, love and happiness as well.

The truth value of the book is 60%, the highest truth value I have every found.

So will you get rich if you read that book? Doubtful. You will misunderstand, misconstrue, pick and choose what the pay attention to and what not to.

Unless you increase your mental acuity, your clarity, and start taking care of yourself, nothing will happen. Nothing can help you.

Even though you were born with all those capacities, without use, without learning to use them, without practice, you remain like a pebble that hides the diamond within.

To get the diamond out, lots of work is required, skilled work, precise work, diligent work.

That is what it takes to make you a diamond. An uncut diamond is not worth much.

Are you worth a damn? Probably not.


  1. What is abundance? “Abundant life” refers to life in its abounding fullness of joy and strength for mind, body, and soul. “Abundant life” signifies a contrast to feelings of lack, emptiness, and dissatisfaction, and such feelings may motivate a person to seek for the meaning of life and a change in their life. The word is Latin in origin, and simply means “fullness, plenty.” But plenty is not what makes a life abundant. It is the sense of no lack… The lack of feeling that something is missing, something is amiss, that something should be there and isn’t.
  2. The fastest and most reliable way to get into a scarcity state is to have too high desire score and too little, too low ambition score.
  3. Someone who has a high abundance score is most likely in action about what they want… and don’t have time to spend much time in desire, or the desire trap.
