Says 349 – Using Failure as Stepping Stones

Use failure as stepping stones. You need to know what does NOT work in order to know what does. Like riding a bike. You need to try new things and FAIL, (fall down) in order to learn what you did wrong, that you will not do the next time. If you keep falling and doing the same thing over and over, then know you are not THINKING and looking for the cause of your failure.… Read the rest

Says 328 – Dumbed down society, apathetic and indifferent.

I know this GIF is supposed to be funny, but the consequences of this scenario are anything but funny. What this activated in me is the sad realization of how dumbed down, apathetic and indifferent society is to what really matters. This scenario is kind of typical of what people do when shit happens around them.… Read the rest

Says 325 – Gaslighting

It’s interesting how these meme’s pop up on my Facebook  time line. Gaslighting ties in with my previous post on Cognitive Dissonance, except there’s a reversal with a more assertive approach to get you to deny your truth and accept their version.… Read the rest

Says 322 – Feeling different, lost and alone.

Saysame.com – Feeling different

Admit it. You think and feel different. You feel you don’t fit into society. You feel lost and alone. You feel like the little match girl, always on the outside looking in. You want to be like them, but you know you aren’t like them, not even close.… Read the rest

Says 318 – Cognitive Dissonance & Misinformation

The image on the left is the current meme definition of cognitive dissonance that is flooding the internet. The original definition of cognitive dissonance, is when you know the truth, but have been “persuaded” to change your mind and accept and promote the lie as the truth. The most common examples can be found in politics and religion.Read the rest

Says 317 – When another person makes you suffer

So what is wrong with this advice?

What’s wrong is that it states that self-sacrifice is love. While there is a part-truth in that the person attacking you may be hurt and suffering, that’s no reason to allow them to control and manipulate you. There is no need to punish them, only to stand your ground and make it clear that you do not accept their abuse and will not tolerate it.… Read the rest

Says 315 – Authority – But it’s illegal

I‘ve known for years that there is bullshit going on in Society, but until it smacks you in the face PERSONALLY it seems unreal and distant, like a story you heard others repeat. The Insurance companies, doctors, medical experts, government, police, lawyers, etc., that I‘ve had to recently deal with, have really hit this issue home.… Read the rest

Says 308 – The power of love vs the love of power

The Power of Love vs the love of power

No longer obeying and playing by the rules, doesn’t mean that one needs to physically revolt and fight those in a position of power; unless that is what you think/feel is necessary. To truly oppose those in a position of power, you need to realize that their power is derived from your, and societies, denials and belief that you are compelled to obey the laws that they have set forth as truth, and willingly accept that they have authority over your sovereign being.… Read the rest

Says 305 – The “Beast”

The New World Order

I modified this image and added the text a few years ago as part of my attempt to try to put some of the pieces of the puzzle together. Don’t get me wrong in quoting the bible, as I’m not religious by any means, it’s just a couple of verses that stuck with me.… Read the rest

Says 304 – Trust your feelings – intuition

EXACTLY the OPPOSITE of what this meme says is true. If you have feelings that something is not right, TRUST your intuition and give yourself the benefit of the doubt. Ask questions to clear the air and you will soon find out if your feelings were wrong.… Read the rest

Says 303 – Attachments and self-sacrifice

As long as you have attachments to another person, you will continue to sacrifice yourself to make them happy. Instead, find the inner reasons of why you are afraid to be alone and why you think / feel you NEED them.… Read the rest

Says 298 – The unseen role of denial and judgments

It’s not really about what is being said, but what is not being said. I could give you a list of judgments and denials, but I feel it’s important that one should become aware of the hidden language within our words. –  Food for thought – or not… Read the rest

Says 293 – Religious Shift and Changes

I find it interesting that a few of the New Agers and RUOW people I know are turning toward organized religion. I don’t mean in an exploratory way, I mean getting right into the Christian saved and born again bible thumpers, or into Hinduism, Buddhism, or Muslim religions with a gung ho attitude that they’ve finally found their community, a sense of commonality, and their calling.… Read the rest

Says 292 – Thriving on anothers fear

I was watching the movie “King Arthur – Legend of the Sword,” and a comment by the present king piqued my interest. I can’t remember the exact words, but they were along the lines that he thrives on another’s fear; that even though they may hate him, it feeds him energy and power.… Read the rest

Says 290 – If it doesn’t feel right –

To follow or not to follow

It’s easy to say, but it’s also one of the most difficult things to do, as it goes against all your imprints and programs of wanting to fit in, to be accepted and loved and not be shunned, scorned and attacked for being different. Religion, politics, and customs and traditions are key elements that we feel forced to adhere to as best we can to minimize conflict.… Read the rest

Says 289 – Facing your shadows (fears)

Another way to say it is that you are giving more energy to “denying” your fears, than in facing and healing them… So the reflection (reality) you create and experience are your denials and NOT your desires. Once you have truly faced and healed your fears (shadows) at the causal level, your outer reality also changes, and what was a fear and issue, no longer is.… Read the rest

Says 288 – Statism (Government) just another form of Religion

Religion and politics (government) are the two major players that control your life through the social illusion that they have the “authority” to make rules, laws, and conditions that “others” must follow. They both control your physical life, mentally, emotionally and physically. The government controls your physical activities through laws, rules, taxes, etc., while religion has rules and conditions that you must adhere to ensure that when you physically die, that you will have a happy afterlife.… Read the rest

Says 284 – Labels – Social and Personal

This meme is floating around the internet and it is hogwash, NOT that it isn’t a truth, but that it’s NOT a social truth, far from it. People are socially imprinted and programmed to label (judge) people, places and things. They give other people status and authority and then kowtow or worship them.… Read the rest

Says 283 – It’s Magic, I’m back in the group

On Saturday night, I got a PM from the person in the group that I had spoken to previously. They said they had just chatted with the Admin of the group and that he said I wasn’t blocked. I went back to the site and tried to post a comment, and I was allowed.… Read the rest

Says 282 – More people seem to have a problem with me.

A couple of days ago, I posted a comment on a Facebook Empath group I’m in, and another member started posting (copy and paste) dogma from books that he had read regarding on clearing your energy field. The material he was sharing was old school material that has been around for at least 30 years, and either doesn’t work, or is a temporary quick fix as I have been there done that, tried them.… Read the rest

Says 281 – Neighbor angry at me.

A couple of days ago, I was outside, on the other side of my apartment building, talking to a woman tenant, when the man that lives between us walked by. I said, ”Hi,” but he never acknowledged me, and just walking with his head down. I felt he was ticked off at me as I was sure he heard me.  … Read the rest

Says 280 – Activated into Shame Issues

The other day I met a woman on Facebook that was in a group I was in. She liked my posts and comments and contacted me, and we chatted for over two hours. She’s an attractive 45 year old widow, with three grown children. She lives in the US; is an artist, musician, dancer, and was a child actor.… Read the rest
