“Face where you are going. That way, life is much less frustrating.” – God

“Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality.”

Even if Einstein is the source of the statement in the image, which he may not have been, does that add credibility for you to the idea stated? The premise is that “The reality that you want is not the reality that you already have. In other words, you do not want the reality that you have already.”

That is the “vibrational frequency” (the way of relating or the practicing) of hell and suffering. Beware of temptation and sin. Temptation is wanting what you do not have, at least from a rejection of what you have. Sin is rejecting what is, rejecting reality. Of course, sin is also a reality and rather than reject sin, we might simply forgive it, which requires far less energy and time.

So, the words attributed to Einstein are in the nature of temptation and sin and suffering, which of course is very common. It’s the basic mantra of “positive thinking” and “the new age.”

Those are not the teachings of what I would call a sage. Here are the teachings of a sage:

buckminster bucky fuller and werner erhard

Results come from actions and actions come from the past, which we can call the momentum of karma. Results are always a perfect match for everything else. Wanting “something else” is a normal and natural human experience. You do not need to struggle to match the “frequency of the vibrational reality” of wanting something else if you already want it. You are already going in the direction you are going. You are already facing in the direction you are facing. If you are not facing in the direction that you are going, that is the real practical issue. Notice whether you are getting closer to the things you are facing. Notice whether you are facing your past or your future. Notice whether you are facing in the direction you are going and, if you are not, then can you turn around until you are facing where you are heading?

So, again, if it were important to you whether Einstein or Bucky Fuller or Werner Erhard (or Jesus Christ) was the source of the above sequence of words, that would reflect a certain way of relating to authority. There is a way of relating to authority in which we can “denigrate” or dismiss certain sources (like a political enemy such as Hitler or Bin Laden or even Malcolm X or Louis Farrakhan or Dan Quayle or Sarah Palin). Along with dismissing certain sources may come the worshiping of particular heroic sources (such as Einstein or Gandhi or Thomas Jefferson or Shakespeare). All of that relates to rejecting your own inner authority, yet also developing your own discretion, whether criticizing some other “authority” or appreciating them, perhaps naively.

Now, I have great respect for both Bucky Fuller and Werner Erhard. Bucky Fuller not only was incredibly intelligent in regard to mathematics, but he also is credited with writing a text that details the history of human language and organized piracy and empires. Before I read that text, I had no idea how the religious (“Holy”) empire of Roman Catholicism was a direct descendant of the first trailblazers in the politics of piracy and the economics of language (which is a tool for influencing the perception and behavior of others, as in governing them or mind control). Bucky is a genius. However, he was not a sage.

Werner Erhard, you may have never heard of. He is still alive. While I am the source of the above quote, I recognize that I borrowed from Werner Erhard and paraphrased him a bit. Here are a couple quotes from him:

THE PATHWAY TO HAVING ISN’T WANTING. IF YOU WANT SOMETHING, YOU NEED TO HAVE A DIFFERENT RELATIONSHIP WITH IT OTHER THAN WANTING IT, IN ORDER TO HAVE IT.

- Werner Erhard, from http://www.laurenceplatt.com/wernererhard/wernere3.html

“I want you to shift your perspective from living your life to being an actor playing the lead role in a play called your life.”

- Werner Erhard

Wanting… Is something “having” cannot cure. -Joe Fortenberry

Happiness is not a future event. -Joe Fortenberry

Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.  Werner Erhard

“Wanting something to make you happy is a sure way to be miserable.” -Mooji

Trying to change anything is a form of battle; wanting something that can only be ours in the future is to block our potential to be happy now.  Therefore, set for yourself a goal that can be fulfilled where you stand.  Make this instant your door to freedom and you will find that it will crack open a little further each time you return to this moment in peace.  Gerald G. Jampolsky, MD, Teach Only Love

When you argue with reality,
you lose – but only always.
- Byron Katie

If you want something to be different than it is,
you might as well teach a cat to bark.
Wanting something to be different than it is, is hopeless.
- Byron Katie

“Face where you are going. That way, life is much less frustrating.” – God

Actually, I recently learned that lesson from a toddler who was learning to walk. (Who had been stumbling in to “obstacles” that “suddenly appeared out of nowhere,” such as trees and furniture and stairways- ouch!) I also learned that lesson myself when I was a toddler, but apparently, sometime since then I have occasionally forgotten. Note that the toddler did not actually say the words there that I attribute to God, but if the toddler had said that, it would not have raised or lowered the accuracy (fundamental authority) of the comment.

    Todd Daniels: “What is sin?? What is Hell? I like my reality.. Everyone suffers. As Buddha stated life is suffering, it is what you do with that suffering. Why do you want something else, why not be happy with what is?? Be where your at so to speak. If you don’t like where your going change direction… I think your over thinking which is in fact the main cause of suffering…”

    J R Fibonacci Hunn: “Todd, thank you for sharing your personal thoughts and opinions and resistance to the simplicity of the teaching. Consider that right now you could be on a planet hurtling through space. How are you going to change direction? Let’s say that the planet is rotating on its axis as it is hurtling through space. Will you change the direction of the rotation around the axis?
    (There is tremendous fear, naivete and arrogance in your answer.)

    Or, you could be on a 5 lane highway in rush hour traffic traveling at 0 miles per hour, yes at a dead stop there on the highway. Imagine that the traffic is facing west and you realize that you have already passed the exit you wish to take. So, given the configuration of the highway and the cars on it, if you wish to take your car with you, you will probably be driving in the direction that traffic is facing- or maybe you have a siren and you are a cop and you could flip on your emergency lights and the cars around you would move out of the way for you to go “backwards” or drive on the shoulder (if there is a should to drive on).

    You have the life you have already. Your life is going however it is going and you really do not have much to do with it. If you have young children in your household and a certain career and a mortgage, all that would be part of your present reality of “momentum.” To attempt to change direction without facing where you are already going is “a recipe for disaster.” I should know. ;) Of course, that is one way to realize where life is already flowing, which could be a rather useful thing to realize.

    I like the analogy of sailing. One notices first the direction that one is going, then perhaps a bit of why and how- such as the blowing of the wind and the set of the sail. Next, if one wishes to change the direction of one’s metaphorical boat (one’s life), then is it easier to change the direction of the wind or the direction of the sail?

    People may complain that their life is not going in the direction they are facing, which is a naive way of saying that they recognize that they are not facing in the direction it is going. Next, they complain that the wind should be going a different direction, rather than adjusting the sail.

    Such complaining is to maintain suffering. It is optional. However, it may be required that we experience such frustrations and confusion in order for us to be present to the reality of the first issue of facing where we are going and then getting that the wind of life (momentum) is blowing however it is and we do not control the wind, but only the sail.

    At another level, all of these metaphors are also seen as naive, but until then- like as long as there is resisting of them- then these are the next metaphors to witness, perhaps to fear, to criticize, to consider, to contemplate, and then to eventually apply and master.
