You hate your job? It is boring? It’s not exciting?

You hate your job? It is boring? It doesn’t make a difference? You are not good at it? It just pays the bills but no fulfillment?

George Bernard Shaw wrote more than a hundred years ago:
“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.” 
And what he wrote about you, being a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances… is more true today than it was in his time.

No one has offered a solution to that issue until now.

It is difficult to see beyond your selfish little self-interests…

It probably won’t surprise you that the most successful people, the producers, are able to separate their emotions from reality, and they more often act on reality than on self-concern. And when they act on emotion, they are just as stupid, inane, and ineffective as you are.

In MY job there is a way to be where I am the teacher and I know what I want to teach, and then I teach that.
And there is a second way when I ask: What wants to be taught?
What causes you to be that feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances?

It’s emotions. Or more precisely: emotional reaction to thoughts, words, rules, should be’s and shouldn’t be’s… to what is right and what is wrong, to what is good and what is evil.

In a previous course of mine, can’t remember which, I use a metaphor, or simile… reality is empty, or mostly empty. It is the sky. And the emotions are the clouds trying to hide reality, cover up reality, replace reality… competing for your attention.

Your life, your effectiveness in life, your happiness depends on your behavior towards the clouds.

If you only see the clouds, you don’t see reality, and you are wretched, emotionally jerked by the clouds.
In effect it all comes from the Original Sin: accepting the Tree of Knowledge as the ultimate guide to life… and grossly ignoring the Tree of Life… aka Reality.
If you want a different life from the life you are heading towards… your job is to unlearn what is largely invisible to you: Identify the water you swim in…

You don’t see things as they are, you see things as YOU are…
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
That was Shakespeare, talking about you, about your life, about how you live your life.

What he means to talk about is a life lived by emotions… without using the brain, the organ of rational thinking, the organ of perceiving reality, or more importantly telling apart the drama, the emotions and reality… and base life on reality.

Until now no one blamed your proclivity, your tendency to choose to look into what you feel on your miserable life.
