Steve pavlina read a book a week

Overview - Despite promises of "fast and easy" results from slick marketers, real personal growth is neither fast "nor "easy. A lot of self help books are very excitatory in their  way of writing: The writer tries to really motivate you and you basically feel the chest-pounding and grunting happening inside you as you read. I started rereading it again this week (I read most of my favorite books a few times a year) and already I feel better and more consciously aware. Establish basic routines only to provide a stable foundation for branching out into unexplored territory. Self discipline is the willingness to do what it takes to achieve the results you want regardless f your mood.
A group of highly trained or exceptional (possibly superhuman) individuals aside, I think the majority of people think this way to some extent. I for one tend to be sloppy with e-mail sending and practical matters, especially if it has piled up. I was having a conversation about this with a student of mine about the paper she was working on, and the whole last minute thing. The student agreed, because let’s be serious that was one totally brilliant unintentional statement and also best not to piss off the person giving you the grade, now is it. We read books about people who have done amazing things, who have turned their life around and we just go “YES. Before issues of identity theft and copyright infringement start arising, let’s cut to the chase. If you really want something to work: If you really want to get fit, get healthy, get succesful, get awesome, you will need to custom design your life. Take who you are and how you operate most effectively, in whatever area, as your key starting points.
When I was young(er, because still totally in the prime of my life here) I read all the self help books I got my hands on. The funny thing is that when it comes to fitness, everyone understands reading a book with exercises doesn’t make you fit. This way you not only acknowledge your starting point, you also give yourself freedom to let go and forgiveness to release negativity towards yourself.
Accepting your starting point and the person you are now is a key to growth, change and development.
You can enjoy the Internet and find a way to do enjoy and benefit from the good stuff, and don’t let the bad stuff drive you crazy. In that regard, once people have made their mind up about you, your every move will be interpreted to confirm that description. Make yourself no illusions: If you are on the Internet doing whatever, there are probably people disagreeing and even disliking you this very minute. If you do something that you are good at (and continuously get better at), something that gives you fulfillment and that you continue to love no matter what, you are already successful in my book.
I can bet you right now that if you want to succeed at something that is actually a hobby, passion or interest of yours, it will be easier.
If you are going to give up every time the world doesn’t explode in applause over your accomplishments, nothing is ever going to happen.
Anyone who makes a big show out of how big of a deal they are comes off as a little douchey.
A little while back, I was thinking about all these sweet, impressionable girls currently residing on the Wonderful World Wide Web.
That fight with your friend, that dispute with the teacher, that embarassing rumor, the break-up, the bad grade or the pound you gained over your vacation? No matter how much you like him, how much you have flirted with him, and how you did kiss him back at first and how you responded to his initial advances: It is NOT okay when he takes it further than you are willing to go.
You’re currently in a period where all sort of crazy and very important developments are going on in your brain in terms of neurons and neural pathways. The guy who is your dream prince and prom king right now might not be the guy you end up buying a stationwagon and a labrador with. I don’t mean to sound like you’re jaded, bitter aunt, but if there is one thing I have seen that sometimes things change in a relationship as people grow or get older. I much rather see a cute girl in clothes that suit her body type and her coloring than someone in jeans that are too tight and wearing a blouse that makes her look sickly and dull.
The biggest mistake I ever made was replacing my habit of reading 3+ books a week by Mindless and Endless Internet Intake. I worry about a whole generation of young girls who have grown up with all these idealistic pictures on the Internet and television shows about how a relationship should be.
Sometimes your romantic life is just waking up together, having a normal day and then going to bed together at night. If there is one thing that makes you sound weak it’s blaming other people or things for your own behavior. I wasn’t surprised when the comments and e-mails started rolling in after my Active vs Passive Lifestyle post. When I’m being so passive, I postpone everything to the last minute, shit piles up and before I know it I have to do 3210 things in one day. A small but big way to make every day unique is by adding an original experience or by giving a routine a different twist or flavor.
I know a lot of people recognize this: I need at least some form of genuine alone-time in order to function properly. Work on that thing that you regard as extraordinary and most important, work on that something you would like to finish before you leave this earth. I write this in the hopes that it will find its way to the screens of people who are ready to read it – most people are either blind to these ideas or they agree with them on an intellectual level but are too cowardly or too disinterested to act on them.
Have you ever noticed that it is possible to read a book effortlessly, enjoy it, and find you understand the topic it was explaining ever after without difficulty in remembering? I have a very opposing philosophy of knowledge – I believe that true understanding is when you have left words and concepts behind, them having served their purpose.
We are being victimised, people – our children are being destroyed, and they are growing up into feelingless machines.
If you feel this sense, this feeling of inconsistency, stay with it – your lie detector is going off. Don’t try to act on this feeling immediately, you will need time to come to terms with it. Because we have laws to force children to go to school, if you have a child you will need to find a way of defending yourself from them. HOMESCHOOLING gives you the freedom to help your children learn what they want to learn in the way they want to learn it. I think sending a child to a normal school is not loving and it’s not living according to truth. You may think that maybe it’s easier just to accept the system as it is and not go against the tide. To find out more about how social conformity is created and encouraged, read my review of the whistle-blowing work of John Taylor Gatto. I didn’t find years 8-11 to be too difficult, though I still found them boring, pointless and annoying. I was home schooled for part of year 6 and most of year 7 and while it was great to not have to go out to school each day and being able to both go on excursions and meet up with other home schoolers occasionally, I also had two sisters being home schooled along with me in different grades and so we were all doing different work and I would spend a lot of time being left to my own devices. I had my spiritual awakening when I was 17 and in high school, and let me tell you its not a pretty place to wake up in, such dense negative energy.
My spiritual understanding of reality and the connection of all has developed immensely and I’m not so angery I know that everying is always as it should be. From low to high, the levels of consciousness are: shame, guilt, apathy, grief, fear, desire, anger, pride, courage, neutrality, willingness, acceptance, reason, love, joy, peace, enlightenment.
While we can pop in and out of different levels at various times, usually there’s a predominant “normal” state for us.
I’ll go over these levels in order, mostly focusing on the ones between courage and reason, since that’s the range where you’re most likely to land.
Desire – Not to be confused with setting and achieving goals, this is the level of addiction, craving, and lust — for money, approval, power, fame, etc. Anger – the level of frustration, often from not having your desires met at the lower level.
Neutrality – This level is epitomized by the phrase, “live and let live.” It’s flexible, relaxed, and unattached. Willingness – Now that you’re basically safe and comfortable, you start using your energy more effectively.
Acceptance – Now a powerful shift happens, and you awaken to the possibilities of living proactively. Reason – At this level you transcend the emotional aspects of the lower levels and begin to think clearly and rationally.
Enlightenment – The highest level of human consciousness, where humanity blends with divinity.
One thing I like about these levels of consciousness is that I can trace back over my own life and see how I’ve been moving through them.
We’ll naturally fluctuate between multiple states throughout the course of any given week, so you’ll probably see a range of 3-4 levels where you spend most of your time.
Notice the natural progression of levels, and consider what happens when you try to short-cut the process. Going up even one level can be extremely hard; most people don’t do so in their entire lives.
I think the most important work we can do as human beings is to raise our individual level of consciousness. We have to keep consciously taking ourselves back to the sources that can help us complete the next leap. Look at this hierarchy with an open mind and see if it leads you to new insights that may help you take the next leap in your own life. The truth is that hard work, courage, and self-discipline are required to achieve meaningful results--results that are not attained by those who cling to the fantasy of achievement without effort.
For those of you who are interested have no clue what I am talking about right now, this is my old book-review of Self Development For Smart People. As you may have experienced yourself, reading a self help book gives you motivation for a little while, but often once you’ve finished the book the peak goes to regular level, or even a drop.
The first step on your path of personal growth must be to recognize that your life as it stands right now isn’t how you want it to be.
No one will hand you the career of your dreams, and no one will solve your relationship problems. When you’re feeling unmotivated, apathetic, bored, or lazy, self-discipline provides your second wind and keeps you moving. You might experience it in one area, not in another, but good examples would be only starting to study the day before an exam, exercising only at the end of the day, or making work dead lines only right before hand, fueled by espressos and adrenalin. Plus, sometimes I get really resilient and writers blocky about writing, and only crack out an article two minutes before I want it to go on-line.
After our conversation, what I said stuck with me, and I entertained the idea for a little.
Like the moment you walk out of your class and you have a few hours to kill until your date or social activity, you just do a few hours of studying? Pretend you know nothing about how other people do it, what other think is the best way to do it and how you have tried to do it. I always loved them; I liked to read, I love to learn, especially if it involves copious amounts of excellent living, and so I downed self help books like hipsters down Starbucks coffee. You can know you should make to-do lists and plan, but unless you use it, your life will still be a chaotic at-the-last-minute mess, no matter how many benefits you can name of to-do lists.
Start taking all the little figments of self help knowledge you have and implement hem, piece by piece, a few every day, a week, or a month.


This allows you to move forward at a much higher speed than if you keep holding yourself back with the negative connotations of where you are now. You’re exactly as you are, where you are; and from hereonout you can only become more amazing and do more amazing things. You’re not really in the room anymore, or in the office, you are really on the Internet. Why the hell would you care that some random found it necessary to say something mean to you? I have always had the following philosophy when it comes to opinions: We are all entitled to them, sure.
I can either bend over backwards and bust a gut trying or let them figure it out on their own. And if people want to hang you out to dry, they will grab you by your ankles and turn you upside down no matter what you do!
I can tell if you’re here for constructive criticism or hoping to hurt my feelings and get under my skin. We all have our personal standards and that’s great, but it can also screw things up. You should have a good reason for wanting to succeed, and the best reason is loving the absolute fuck out of what you’re doing. To get better, to train yourself, to actually become good at something, and very important: to teach yourself discipline, and to keep going despite external circumstances. Trust me, because I accidentally did it myself (with my 600 followers, lolz) and if I have been rolling my eyes at myself ever since. I thought about my younger cousins, I thought about the daughters I might have one day and what I would want them to know.
If it’s no longer a functional relationship that makes you really happy and your ideas of the future are too different, it’s okay to let someone go (with love and respect, preferably).
If you dress accordingly, both you and the clothes come together in a gorgeous, unique ensemble. Like you’re always going to be Cinderella and the Prince, Marissa and Ryan or Blair and Chuck or Rory and Amy*. I think if you can do it every once in a while, with a little joke, nothing wrong with a comedic remark about something that sucks. Choose wisely, because whatever you do always ends up on your own record, not that of another person. Hopefully, you will be able to take your rest long before that breaking point, my dear reader. This is one of those things where you can only find the perfect middle ground through experience, topped with a little trial and error here and there.
Because in my active lifestyle, the activity includes taking the time I need to relax and recharge. And THAT is what really makes me exhausted and burnt out, with NO time to take care of myself! Also, and this is going to sound crazy (but hey, you’re not new here, you know the drill) I made a deal with The Universe about this. I have just made the deal with The Universe like “Yo guys, this is a little too much: Can you make something work, alright?
As long as you do it smiling, functioning, and with only the occasional big sigh or grumpy comment that you mean for the duration of a less-glamorous aspect of your job, means you’re doing the right thing and can handle everything just fine. You are fully capable of deciding when you’re a gazillion percent done with something. I love being at work, in my house, eating dinner with Manfred in front of Australian Master Chef (LOVE IT) and going to sleep in our damned-mosquite ridden bedroom.
By treating yourself on regular days too, in whatever tiny way, you make your day more special.
As little as five to ten minutes, whatever you have to spare: This way your normal days are infused with value and importance. For a long time, I was actually held back greatly by this anger – no-one is too disposed to listening to you if you lose your head. Some people though will feel a sensation – more or less strong – that learning can be easier and more joyful. Have you ever compared this to the relative torture that is sitting down in a library and forcing yourself to learn? The narrative brings you to the conclusion, the vision, but the final result is what counts. The evil of the school system made me want to kill someone, destroy something, do anything to get you TO WAKE THE FUCK UP!!! It makes me sick to see a child with spirit put into the prison of modern schooling, so sick. Conformist, dissatisfied, controllable, fearful, that fits with your (very valid btw) point. I finished the majority of my time in school at the end of last year and am now quite messed up because of it, between the way the system works and the way I’ve been treated in the past by students in my classes.
Ha!) I only passed 2 of my highschool classes, one was an creative writing class and the other was phyicology and it was cause I was so interested in the material being taught to us.
And it really helps knowing that this system is broken and is about to collapse any day now. If you’re reading this blog, chances are you’re at least at the level of courage because if you were at a lower level, you’d likely have no conscious interest in personal growth.
At the level of willingness you’ve become competent, and now you want to put your abilities to good use.
It’s unconditional love, a permanent understanding of your connectedness with all that exists. Eckhart Tolle describes this state in The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment. Not only people but also objects, events, and whole societies can be ranked at these levels. I remember being stuck at the level of guilt for a long time – as a child I was indoctrinated into a belief system where I was a helpless sinner, being judged according to the standards of someone at the level of love or higher. One way to figure out your “natural” state is to think about how you perform under pressure. If you try to reach the level of reason before mastering self-discipline (willingness) and goal-setting (acceptance), you’ll be too disorganized and unfocused to use your mind to its full extent. Without the presence of consciousness, we fall into reflexive patterns by default, living more like unconscious animals than fully sentient beings. Or when you come home, you want to work out and have the whole night ahead of you; why not put on that running gear right away and do a 5k? By all means, use the lives of others in print or in imagery to inspire you, but it’s more effective, beneficial and fun (!) to create your own. Not everyone will fare best by going on the Eat, Pray, Love tour, channeling the 4-hour work week into their teaching gig, making pictures exactly like the favorite fashion blogger of the month or by eating the exact diet described in a diet book. For example, by starting to take into account you’re either a morning or night person. I can tell you every reason why yoga is amazing for you, but if I am not doing it I am not actually gaining anything now, am I. Next thing you know I end up housesitting for someone and making the biggest mess since Sebastian the Crab got loose in the castle’s kitchen. What works best here is trying to let go of that negativity you feel towards being where you are right now. You want to change because you deserve to be your most wonderful self, not because you’re not good enough. My blog, other people’s blogs, being in contact with amazing people and having both helpful information and hilarious memes only a click away.
With all the great things, it’s also a place where things can get real ugly real quick. Your surroundings just fade away and the computer and what’s on the screen is pretty much the only thing you see.
What we need to understand that our opinion is actually NOT the most important thing in the world to another person (SHOCKER).
What you spend your time on on-line, how you treat shitty websites and weird commenters and how big you let everything get.
If you can only define success as Lady Gaga-esque fame and a billion-dollar endeavor, you’re setting yourself up for failure with a ridiculously high bar.
You may not be a millionaire, but you can sustain your livelihood or receive a cute perk here and there. It will also be more natural, more sincere and more fun for you (and everyone else) along the way. Because you would be doing it probably for fun anyway too! I don’t make myself any illusions in terms of world-fame or whatever, but in that aspect my blog is doing a lot better now.
But I also want you to give it time, sweat, maybe even a few tears if necessary and a big chunk of patience and reality. It’s a good distraction from your own shit and often a technique to make people feel better about themselves.
Just because you enjoyed flirting and making out, you are not obligated to do anything, okay? You only get one brain and the more useable it is, the better throughout the rest of your life.
You will thank me later when you look in the mirror and your look more beautiful and put together than ever. Even if your teacher sucks, you still could have studied to make up for the damages, right?
If you take on an active and busy approach to life, aren’t you going to arrive at a moment where you just want to drop everything and crawl under your blanket? Yoga classes, lots of sleep, making healthy foods, quiet alone time or an energizing cup of tea with a friend. If you can’t have too many obligations in one day, you need to cut that shit short and only have one or two big different tasks a day.
And I believe you can make the regular days exactly the reason why your life is so beautiful and special. You continuously add to your self love evidence, resulting in more self love and self-esteem which leads to a happier, more radiant you.
Learning everything by rote is like climbing a ladder while trying to carry all of the rungs you’ve stepped on up with you. And I think what’s now accepted as “normal” is a group insanity made OK by collective approval. Actually, perhaps sadism for them is a secondary pleasure, but in their goal of making mindless slaves of people they are really not worried about our suffering. And if I could find someone to bring justice to I would have, yet it seemed that everyone was playing their part in keeping the system going, at the very least with their silent, passive approval – including me.
Just ask yourself this, why would it feel uncomfortable if there weren’t a grain of truth? Again, your article is right on point, and it is also very deceptive how some states require mandatory public schooling without offering (or making parents aware of) any alternatives like homeschooling, unschooling and such. If you don’t have kids of the same level working together or if you have kids that are easily distracted, finding out the kids interests and their attention levels would be a good idea, before figuring out how best to proceed with home education.
And I can use the principle of Love to find others with a similar viewpoint and work things out together. The descriptions of each level are based on Hawkins’ descriptions but blended with my own thoughts.
Usually you’ll need help to rise above this level, or you’ll remain trapped for a long time, such as in an abusive relationship.
The way I see it, when you reach this level, you become capable of using your reasoning abilities to their fullest extent.


Within your own life, you’ll see that some parts of your life are at different levels than others, but you should be able to identify your current overall level. Without conscious effort or the help of others, you’ll likely just stay at your current level until some outside force comes into your life.
If you try to push yourself to the level of love before you’ve mastered reason, you’ll suffer from gullibility and may end up in a cult.
This is why people below the level of courage aren’t likely to progress without external help. Imagine what an incredible world this would be if we could at least get everyone to the level of acceptance. I recall when making the shift from neutrality to willingness, I listened to time management tapes almost every day.
Try not to get your ego wrapped up in the idea of being at any particular level, unless you’re currently at the level of pride of course. As you read, you'll learn the seven universal principles behind all successful growth efforts ("truth, love, power, oneness, authority, courage, " and "intelligence"); as well as practical, insightful methods for improving your health, relationships, career, finances, and more.
But despite the difficulty, self-discipline remains one of the most significant aspects of personal development. Or when you know you have a deadline in a couple of weeks and you have a few free hours, why not spend one of them working? That’s fine, but stop pretending you’re usually pretty healthy while you’re heating up your fourth microwave meal this week. There are a lot of ratchet and sour individuals on the loose trying to make their problems go away by bringing them to you, and from one fucked up individual a lot of shit can find its way to a lot of different computer screens. My general rule of thumb is that if I get too worked up over something on-line*, I am not going there.
And real life yoga, writing, walking, running and shopping puts everything back into perspective. Would you do what you are doing too, without the added desire for a certain level of success? If he doesn’t respect that, you’re dealing with someone who either is crazy with hormones (it happens) or a jackass.
My active lifestyle contains more active, mindful opportunities to unwind and unstress than my passive lifestyle.
If I notice I’m getting overwhelmed, I just tug an imaginary cord and before I know it, something happens to make me feel relaxed. However, I can guarantee you that if you use your active time optimally, you will use that rest with a much more satisfied sense of well-being!
No amazing accomplishments every day, I don’t go to magical places every day (unless my kitchen counts, which in my opinion it does) nor do I have a special event or something every day. Alone time is often when you truly figure out your real goals, your desires, what you want to do, how you really feel and that will help you guide yourself into the direction you want to go in!Also, the time you spend with yourself you can devote to truly take care of yourself. Or you know what you need to know to pass the exam, but you find that this is different from a real working understanding.
In the end I summoned all my courage up to take away my part of the approval, though there was no-one I knew who could tell me I wasn’t crazy. As an individualist myself (and I suspect you’re one too) I feel like I should point out the word usage. I just wanted to point out the word usage, just as I would if a someone wrote an entire article about the importance of women’s equality and said then said that feminism was a problem (even thought that is the ~exact~ definition of feminism). The only reason I did year 12 is because I needed to finish school to be able to get into a college in Scotland (which, to be honest, I’m wondering if I even want to do now, what with the system).
Hawkins defines this as a logarithmic scale, so there are far fewer people at the higher levels than at the lower ones. You begin to have an inkling of interest in personal growth, although at this level you’ll probably call it something else like skill-building, career advancement, education, etc. You think about time management and productivity and getting organized, things that weren’t so important to you at the level of neutrality. I don’t like the label “acceptance” that Hawkins uses here, but it basically means that you begin accepting responsibility for your role in the world. You might be at the level of neutrality overall but still be addicted to smoking (level of desire).
By high school I had reached the level of pride — I was a straight-A student, captain of the Academic Decathlon team, showered with accolades and awards, but I became dependent on them. Courage is required to work on this consciously; it comes down to repeatedly betting your whole reality for the chance to become more conscious and aware. I immersed myself in sources created by people at the level of willingness until I eventually shifted. You'll see how to become the conscious creator of your life instead of feeling hopelessly adrift, enjoy a fulfilling career that honors your unique self-expression, attract empowering relationships with loving, compatible partners, wake up early feeling motivated, energized, and enthusiastic, achieve inspiring goals with disciplined daily habits and much more With its refreshingly honest yet highly motivating style, this fascinating book will help you courageously explore, creatively express, and consciously embrace your extraordinary human journey. How running makes you want to kill yourself but how dancing makes you both happy and healthy. Add a series of jumping jacks or push ups to your exercise routine, or maybe a Beyonce Dancebreak. I find few things more amazing and gratifying than being around my oldest friends, my new friends and my wonderful family. See Self-Love. Figure out what amount of me-time is adequate and what you should add to make your days a significant amount more amazing. If you were a biologist – I use this example because I studied biology – you could well find that learning the Kreb’s cycle is utterly useless for what you do on the job.
The best I had in this regard were a few articles on the internet which vindicated me in my convictions. OK, I can think of another possibility – you could find other people who see things in a like manner to you and make a community effort. Do we need to wait until the world is about to suffocate under a poison cloud before we start looking for ways of living in alignment with love? But how does power come into play when your entire government conspires against you to create a system that’s practically impossible to escape?!
If you read the book, it’s also fairly easy to figure out where you fall on this hierarchy based on your current life situation. You start to see your future as an improvement upon your past, rather than a continuation of the same. If something isn’t right about your life (your career, your health, your relationship), you define your desired outcome and change it. But that eventually becomes a dead end where you fall into the trap of over-intellectualizing. The lower levels you find within yourself will serve as a drag that holds the rest of you back. I hit the level of Courage in my late teens, but the courage was very unfocused, and I overdid it and got myself into all sorts of trouble. But a book on time management will be of little use to someone who’s at the level of pride; they’ll reject the very notion with a lot of defensiveness. Imagine all the wonderful accomplishments that will be within your grasp once you become disciplined enough to consistently follow through on your best intention.
Listen to music instead of mindlessly watching a television show while doing your homework (improves concentration). Put away the pedometer and stop feeling awesome for setting 5000 steps a day: That’s not exercise, that’s delusion.
Snap yourself out of it by putting your feet firmly on the ground, getting up every hour or so to get a drink, do something physical or do anything else to remind you you are in the real world. I know my father (a professional geneticist) can’t scribble down this mind-numbingly complicated graph by heart. Maybe if I’d cut out the dance and the roda each week I would have passed that subject. These people are the “troopers” of society; they get things done well and don’t complain much.
There’s no more need to set goals and make detailed plans — the expansion of your consciousness allows you to operate at a much higher level.
I then spent about a year in neutrality and moved through willingness and acceptance during my 20s with a lot of conscious effort.
For example, when you hit the level of courage, all your past fears and false pride seem silly to you now. My friend Fleur didn’t want a dime-a-dozen article-website, she wanted high quality reading about interesting original topics and created Na De Lunch. Quite frankly, a little repulsive in the literal sense of the world: It will drive people away from you.
He has a better way – he has a copy of it stuck on his wall which he checks up on when he needs to. I was angery at the teachers for being so oblivious, they don’t even know that there brain washing us.
You become so closely enmeshed in your beliefs that you see an attack on your beliefs as an attack on you. If you’re in school, then you’re a really good student; you take your studies seriously and put in the time to do a good job. This level drives many people to switch careers, start a new business, or change their diets. So what’s the best use of my talents?” You take a look around the world and start making meaningful contributions. At the level of love, you now place your head and all your other talents and abilities in service to your heart (not your emotions, but your greater sense of right and wrong — your conscience). You may be at the level of acceptance and read a book at the level of reason and feel really inspired. At present I’m at the level of reason and getting closer and closer to completing the leap to love. When you reach the level of acceptance (setting and achieving goals), you look back on the level of willingness and see you were like a mouse running on a treadmill — you were a good runner, but you didn’t pick a direction.
My best friend Lin who took up running because she found it was the most beneficial to her life, and who knows exactly how to motivate herself because she figured it out about herself as she went along. I started skipping a lot of my classes and going to library to research qestions about this awakening i was experencing and learned so much more there sitting at a computer than i did in my whole public school career.
I experience the state of love more and more often, and it’s guiding many of my decisions already, but it hasn’t yet stuck as my natural state. What happens to me under pressure is that I become hyper-analytical, but recently I just had a pressure situation where I handled it mostly by intuition, which was a big change for me. I’ve also experienced the state of joy for days at a time, but never with any permanence yet. This tells me I’m getting close to the unconditional love state because in that state, intuition can be effectively accessed even under pressure. That state is a pervasive feeling of natural euphoria, as if I’m exploding on the inside with positive energy.
If you’re at the level of reason, watching TV news (which is predominantly at the levels of fear and desire) will temporarily lower your consciousness. I’ve been in that state for most of this morning, probably because I haven’t eaten anything yet today (I find it easier to hit that state of consciousness when I eat lightly or not at all).
Hawkins claims this level is reached only by 1 in 250 people during their entire lifetimes.
