Here’s a video about all kinds of consternational things, including pencils, war, manhood, and womanhood. Also, reprogramming the subconscious mind and vital body when their Rules of Life don’t suit us all that well …
- Pencils! Oh no!
- Story about my father, who was an architect, his drafting table, and the horrifying story he told me about the dangers of having No. 2 pencils that are sharpened at both ends so as to save time in drafting
- How I tried to formulate the Rules of Life and the Laws of the Universe in early childhood
- Sleep Is a Dangerous Thing!
- How my father’s pencil story resulted in this rule: It’s dangerous to fall asleep. Maybe it would be better to stay awake all the time, or I might die!
- Pencils Are Dangerous!
- This rule proved to be false in a physical sense (although I found it useful in the context of seeking enlightenment. So then I formulated this rule: Pencils are dangerous! This sunk into my subconscious mind permanently. Even today, I prefer pens to pencils.
- Subconscious Rules That Don’t Suit Us Well
- This is an example of how rules that don’t fit the facts of life can sink into our subconscious minds and vital bodies and influence us all our lives. So, I’m on a quest to find those rules and change them a little, so that my life becomes more flowing, more in the Now, and more happy. So that it doesn’t get stuck in those little childhood traumas.
- An Awful War Story
- Another story my dad told me during my early years: His awful World War II war story: He was in the CBs, and was in charge of a barge used to haul supplies into the beach at Normandy. Everyone he served with died, over the course of his service, except for himself.
- Now, in my majority, I wonder how deeply his Soul might have been wounded by this experience; although he was a loving father and a good teacher about life. If the pencil story, which involved just one death, had such an influence on me, I wonder how that terrible wartime catastrophe affected my father’s life.
- What are the consequences of war on the families that veterans go back to? I think it’s far more far-reaching than we suppose.
- The Measure of Manhood
- Amongst young men, there’s a great emphasis on size of sexual organs. That not-too-important thing has a tendency to stick in their subconscious minds throughout their lives, because there’s such an identification with that act of manhood.
- It would be easy for me to say it’s not that important; but the problem is, for them, it might be super important.
- Reprogramming the Subconscious Mind with Pictures
- The subconscious mind and the vital body are greatly influenced by pictures. You could talk to it all day long, and that wouldn’t make as much difference as just one picture.
- So I thought, why not … if there’s an issue that’s coming up in our subconscious mind and our vital body, such as the pencil … or maybe the size of one’s sexual organs, if you’re a man … why not do an internet search, and get some pictures, and re-evaluate the situation: It could be that most people are pretty much the same. This might have a far greater effect on self-assurance than any other approach.
- Because we’re not really dealing with the rational mind here. We’re trying to reprogram the subconscious mind and the vital body, which are like a little child, no matter how old we get.
- The Measure of Womanhood
- You could say, about women, that the size of our breasts is a major issue in the society of today. But, there are plenty of supermodels that are small breasted. It’s not such a big deal, when you come right down to it.
- So, for ladies that have an issue about size, you could do something like that: Print out pictures of ladies that are famous and beautiful, who are also small breasted (or large breasted, or whatever the problem is regarding our own self-esteem).
In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
