Stop Thinking You Need Anything Except YOU

How many times have you heard the pitch

You have to have this to be successful

The reality is you have to have this so they can be successful.

Twisted truths of marketing, they pray on our desire to be understood, to be accepted.

Anyone selling anything is for the reason to be selfish, nothing else, and what could possibly be wrong with that, IF and only IF they are honest about it. Only a few of them are upfront honest.

People will buy things just to tell others who they know want it, to incite envy and jealousy.
Tell a person what their competition wants and they will even destroy themselves to out do them.

When I encounter a person who has a healthy center, has no motivation to impress, they only want the key of capitalism that it started out to be before it became the tools of manipulation.

The right to self determination.


To achieve this freedom requires only one ingredient, a healthy relationship with your self. Nothing else required.

The human spirit is limitless, boundless, and has no constraints until you believe otherwise.


I admire and wish to emulate those of us with the courage to live vulnerable.


Watch this video and the next time someone says you need anything except your self. Take a long hard look at what motivates them.


In conclusion and never the end, tip's hat

The more I ignore wanting to have what others want but do not have the quality of my life increases exponentially.

#36 Any religious reference is on no meaning to me. Don't even try that.

#35 Physical attributes regarding genes are not learned behavior. All behavior is learned. Ask any one who does that for a living.

Even children demonstrate these behaviors.
As taught by the examples around them.

@Kevin Baker
I'm speaking in spiritual terms ... but much "brokenness" is manifest in the physical

Human beings are “broken”
***
“Broken” in spirit: at the “fall of man” the “flesh” gained authority over the spirit … thus we live our lives governed by the “flesh”: oriented to self, governed by fleshly desires, ruled by externals and focused on the temporal … unless or until we are “born of the Spirit” … then our spirit comes alive to God’s Spirit … and thus we become a “new creation” and we can begin to “walk by the Spirit” & be “led by the Spirit” This spiritual “rebirth” begins the transformation & sanctification process
We are transformed & spiritual growth occurs AS we cooperate with the Spirit of God … because the Holy Spirit can only do for us what we allow Him to do in us.
***
“Broken” in our physical body: as a result of the “fall of man” we age … we are afflicted by disease, life circumstances or events and the earth has become polluted & corrupted by man … thus we die

Kevin ~ I love bantering with a brilliant bee
The thought occurs as I type that this conversation may follow the same path as parenting:
“two revisions in congruence … which becomes one” … although there are likely to be many, many twist & turns … detours
1)
You say:
… Our dna does not come with built in social behavior. not possible.
… genes are the possibility of same physical results, if you mirror the life of the parent.

…There is a lot of discussion that infers this, never no proof.

… Fractals yes are in everything, not once do you mention behavior.

Every human being is born into sin & “brokenness” … like a can of Campbell’s soup -its all in there
The “proof” of “behavior” … “proof” of “The Fractal “Broken” State of Humanity
Please read & tell me one person who does not possess one (or many) of these behaviors?
... “behaviors” that confirm our “broken” sinful nature/our self-deceived & corrupt heart condition: fear, greed, rebellion, selfishness … lying, murder, pride, evil … and death
Add: anger, bitterness, double-minded, envy, strife, deceit, malice, wickedness, depravity, arrogance, gossip, slander, disobedience, senseless, faithless … heartless
Even children demonstrate these behaviors
2)
A brilliant bee previously mentioned: “The right to self determination.”
God has given to man the gift of free will … we get to choose our behaviors (good-bad-or ugly)

3)
The good news is that it’s not what you are born into … but what you have in you to be (about this I will write-it is in my famous “DRAFTS”)

@Fay Vietmeier

I probably give MORE information than you require … which makes me smile ;~)

Not my thoughts no. you decide your words, is all good

And yes I am a person who talks/writes with out euphemism . blunt

"The Well-Spring Café" . Ok that I get. Great name for inspiration

2) warp speed , yup ahuh my IQ is 162 last time.

I understand the reference to the human condition.

I do not connect to any other result of behavior other then a decision. This I can prove.

Our dna does not come with built in social behavior. not possible.
genes are the possibility of same physical results, if you mirror the life of the parent.

There is a lot of discussion that infers this, never no proof.

The Fractal State of Humanity & the "hidden forces" at work: FOR you & against you Yes I have read this.
Fractals yes are in everything, not once do you mention behavior.

3)
Are you saying you have not heard the term “broken” applied to human beings? Of course I have.

wish you well

@Kevin Baker
As I type one thing occurs to me ;~)
I probably give MORE information than you require … which makes me smile ;~)
A guy ask a question … he is just looking for “yes” or “no”
A girl responds like she’s writing a novel ;~)

I could have just said: “I made up the Café” and further clarified it is called “The Well-Spring Café”
BUT … as I mentioned earlier (giving more explanation than is required)
… in prior conversations with Ali Anani (at some point, Ali called me a "spring spirit" ... which I tweaked ... with his blessing… to "well-spring spirit")
… which I drew from Scripture: "Above all else guard your heart because it is the well-spring of life" ~ Proverbs 4 (“well-spring” … an original and bountiful source of something)

"The Well-Spring Café" is my made-up welcoming place for conversation & the exchange of IDEAS ;~) with other "bees"
... picture a lovely outdoor café … hanging baskets … sunshine … filled with engaged & engaging “bees” …

To quote a famous bee:
“Your presence is always welcome … though never expected” ~ @Kevin Baker

Kevin~ I think you are reading at warp speed ;~)
Back to:
Human beings are “broken”… human beings
(I did NOT “choose” this condition ;~) nor did my parents
“Brokenness”… landed on us as a result of the “fall” through our parents of origin: Adam & Eve
If you brave to read my post ;~)
…the “broken” condition of humanity… is explained here (Fractal from the Latin means “broken”)

Part 1)

4)So you daughter still goes by “Spud”

My daughter uses the given names from the family and her mother as stated for the public to keep me out of prison and her in the litter.
She has not changed them to what she chooses. Still waiting.

The names kiddo and spud are only used by me for them. That will never change. Neither of them uses them. That is for me.

5)You are 1 of 7 children?
No I grew up within a litter of 6.

Look forward to the next essence of your presence.

wish you well

Never a need to apologize, ever.

Your presence is always welcome, never expected.

What is The Café ? If this is anything to do with Windows. No need to answer.

Human beings are “broken”… Who chose this?
(I did not “choose” this condition ;~)
“Brokenness”… landed on us as a result of the “fall” through our parents of origin)

Are you saying that your parents chose to teach you your brokenness and you chose to accept this?

That is confirming and denying at the same time.
Who chose this?
