A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle

A very deep book that requires some thinking time to properly grasp the meanings and truly understand the author. If you intend to read it ensure to have a pen and paper at the ready, here’s what I wrote;

  • This book is about you. It will change your state of consciousness or it will be meaningless. It can only awaken those who are ready.
  • (reading this book made me realise there’s so much I don’t understand)
  • The only difference between a crazy person and a sane person is they talk out loud.
  • The consciousness that says “I am thinking” is not the consciousness that thinks e.g. if you think about a dog, what it looks like, sounds etc the part of the mind that knows you are thinking about the dog is a different dimension of consciousness. If there was nothing but thought in you, you wouldn’t know you was thinking. You would be like a dreamer who doesn’t know they are dreaming.
  • Ego is identification with form
  • All think is required to become free of ego is be aware of it. Awareness and ego are incompatible.
  • The underlying emotion that governs all the activity of the ego is fear.
  • The most the ego can ever do to cover up the fear temporarily with an intimate relationship, new procession or winning at something.
  • “How can I be myself?” is in fact the wrong question. It implies you have to do something to be yourself.
  • Who are you? Consciousness that has become conscious of it’s self.
  • You may not want to know yourself becasue you are afraid of what you may find out. Many people have a secret fear that they are bad.
  • When you drink alcohol, you may feel relaxed, more carefree and perhaps more alive for a while because you are less burdened by your mind, you can glimpse the joy of being. Perhaps this is the reason alcohol is also called spirit.

YouTube Black Book by Christopher Sharpe

This is a quick, simple and easy-to-read ebook. It gets straight to the point and that’s the main reason I gave it 4 stars on Amazon  and Goodreads. Reading time is up to 2 hours.

Here’s what I journaled;

  • Three types of video get shared; 1) identity – something we can relate to. 2) Emotional Gift – causes an emotional response. 3) Social role of information – to prove a point/tell the world this is my belief.
  • Video titles used to grab attention.
  • Description – only the first 3 lines are visible before clicking to watch.
  • Aim for 7-10 tags
  • Use speechpad.com or fiverr.com for captions.
  • MemberMaze is a word press plugin for offering monthly member ship.

When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Orange Juice

Life throws many obstacles and curve balls at us, that we have no control over. However, it’s not what happens to us that will determine our future, but what we do about what happens to us – how we react is the most important action.

Reacting to situations the way we’ve always done will get the same results we’ve always had. If we want different results, we must change how we act.

Pick someone who you aspire to become – a role model – and study how they would act. Mirror them, become them.

Be careful when picking your role model; my top tip is to go for someone who has achieved exactly what you want to do and nothing less!

Don’t Be a Follower, Be a Student

This post is aimed at the followers, if you’re leader there’s no need to read any further.

There’s nothing wrong with being a follower, in fact there are many things that are great. Less responsibility being one that quickly springs to mind.

But, I would ask are you an intelligent follower? Do you make your own mind up about the details of life?

When presented with new information, maybe from a leader or from another place such as Google, do you accept it as the truth or do you study it, and make your own conclusions?

Make your own mind up about the information you receive.

An intelligent follower becomes a leader very quickly.

Who do you have to become to be a leader?
