03/03/2009 05:40:55 ‹real› Hey Balance! Nice to meet you again.
03/03/2009 05:41:12 ‹Balance› hi =)
03/03/2009 05:41:32 ‹Balance› how's life progressing?
03/03/2009 05:41:55 ‹real› By the way, as I remember from our last conference, you are the scepticer and the one who prefers the rational explanation. And here I have to point out your nickname: balance :D
03/03/2009 05:42:08 ‹real› I am doing great.
03/03/2009 05:43:09 ‹real› You bring balance to those who loose it by believing to much in spirituality and loosing grip of the reality...
03/03/2009 05:44:16 ‹real› I also find it interesting what "The Secret" hast produced in the latter days: there are many parody-videos on it and new parody-books on amazon.com
03/03/2009 05:45:19 ‹Balance› Well if that was true that would be awesome. But in my opinion there is no point in balancing two worldviews that are inherently opposite - it only leads to incongruency
03/03/2009 05:45:52 ‹Balance› which in the end is pretty much the opposite of having a "peace of mind".
03/03/2009 05:47:44 ‹Balance› Also from my perspective it is good that those parodies pop out... not just because I disagree with the Law Of Attraction but just because I think nothing should be "holy" and "untouchable".
03/03/2009 05:49:12 ‹real› What I observe is that some people are not ready for such ideas as the law of attraction. Instead of understand the actual ideas, they bend them to fit their world view. The most common mistake is that "they" say, I have to just think and visualize and to not do anything.
03/03/2009 05:50:22 ‹real› Although in the film it is very clearly stated that you have to take action. No matter if this is just an envelopment of an obvious and rational truth or a tip of the iceberg of spiritual nature of our world. The statement is: be positive, become clear on what you want and ACT on it.
03/03/2009 05:51:50 ‹real› I also like the idea that there is nothing holy and untouchable in this world. This statement I heard in "Conversations with God" too - from God himself :-) Got states in this book, that the message of Jesus was that he is not holier than others - but people did not listened.
03/03/2009 06:28:20 ‹Balance› "What I observe is that some people are not ready for such ideas as the law of attraction." Well... - from my point of view spiritual people are not ready to accept that there is no higher power or higher purpose or an afterlife.
03/03/2009 06:29:59 ‹Balance› A core belief or assumption about reality - or how the world works - is true in our eyes so we tend to think of other worldviews as "not quite ready for the real deal".

05/04/2009 13:01:50 ‹Balance› Oh Jesus, another day of work finally behind me.
05/04/2009 13:03:49 ‹Balance› I'm writing down a lengthy and vivid "screenplay" of my vision in text format... and today I did the first audio recording of it. Damn I still got a long way to go... (h)
05/04/2009 13:05:24 ‹Balance› Hopefully in a few days it won't suck so bad anymore and I can implement it into my daily morning routine. Imagination is key, without it there's no emotion and hence no motivation available to push through the hard work you gotta do.
05/04/2009 13:06:51 ‹Balance› Anyway wish you guys a perfect evening (or whatever comes next in your timezone).
05/04/2009 15:20:32 ‹Epideus› hi
05/04/2009 15:55:36 ‹viktorados› Balance, would it be possible to listen to it? Or take a look at a script?
05/04/2009 17:27:58 ‹Balance› *scratch head - it's sorta intimate if you understand what I mean ;) Also it's in german so it won't be of much use for most users.
05/04/2009 17:29:36 ‹Balance› But it's really simple, (simple - not easy ;)). Basically you write down a storyline with a couple of the "rewards/feelings" you will experience when you accomplish your goals.
05/04/2009 17:30:39 ‹Balance› Like Holidays at a beach, cruising in a car or having fun with girls... whatever just invent a "plot". The in a second step you add layers of "senses" to this first script and make it very sense-orienged
05/04/2009 17:31:57 ‹Balance› "I see the bue sky and hear the burst of waves against the shore in the distance. I feel the texture of my hammock while [...] you get the picture.
05/04/2009 17:33:20 ‹Balance› Once it's just right you gotta record it (I used "audacity" (it's free)- it's not only good for recording your viode with a microphine, you can also add layers of sounds (like the sound of the sea etc.)
05/04/2009 17:34:32 ‹Balance› I'm not finished yet but I'm already at 8 minutes spoken dialogue (or rather monologue ^^). I'll try to make it around 15 mins but do whatever suits you.
05/04/2009 17:35:41 ‹Balance› The idea is to listen to this recording once in the morning and maybe once before going to sleep to program and focus your mind for your goals and create motivation within you by "imagining" the feelings you will have once you accomplish your goals.
05/04/2009 17:36:04 ‹Balance› It's sort of the audio-imagination countarpart to a visionboard with a similar purpose
05/04/2009 17:38:28 ‹Balance› (PS: I hope ot works better than the Visionboard. It's allright but I honestly overestimated its effect.)
02:25:08 ‹viktorados› yep, I agree that it will have a stronger effect than simple vision board ;)
06/04/2009 02:25:49 ‹viktorados› How did you come to this idea? Did you read any tutorials on it or somebody mentioned about it in a book?
06/04/2009 05:20:39 ‹Balance› Well I got that idea some time ago already, probably a year ago but later on I read "The Neuroscience of Self Discipline (which is really awesome) and it also suggests to do this.
06/04/2009 05:21:37 ‹Balance› It's actually more than a suggestion, this is one of the most important (if not THE most important) "excercise" the program was talking about.
06/04/2009 05:26:02 ‹Balance› And I can perfectly see why. If you have this awesome, colorful sensory-rich scene in your head about how it will feel to reach your goals, it really should get you going.
06/04/2009 05:27:14 ‹Balance› The version I recorded yesterday is crap but it works pretty good. Once you make a habit out of "visiting" this place in your imagination, it will almost become your 2nd home, especially since you add more and more details each time.
06/04/2009 05:28:51 ‹Balance› If you make a habit of listening to the recording i would suspect that after a while you can just close your eyes and "you are there" with all the tiny details you imagined around you.
