Group Narcissism

I do not usually just give a link to someone else’s content and say “Hey, go over to their page and check this out!”

This man has a lot of helpful information on his channel that would be of benefit to MANY people I know – including some of the ones I care most deeply about.

Check out this video on “Collective Narcissism.”

Personal Integrity In Your Relationships

What does the word “integrity” mean to you? In your job? In your relationships? In your personal life?

I’m reviewing a recording I did for a few people back in June so I can write the ad for it, and I forgot I told them about my dad and his integrity with his job and with his relationship with me.

See, when I was a kid, we were “poor.”

My dad worked hard, long hours as a mechanic at a place that treated him like a dog.

My mom worked hard, long hours while I was in school, cleaning.

They couldn’t get food stamps when I was little because the people at the food stamp office said if they could afford to put me in a private school, they didn’t need food stamps.

Well when I turned 7, my dad was supposed to have the day off.

My birthday is on a national holiday here in the US.

My dad was real GOOD at what he did. He was always at the top of his class when they sent him to training, and he signed up for EVERY training they would send him to.

He was supposed to have off that day for my birthday.

The “BOSS” called him out of bed early that morning to tell him he HAD to go in to work.

My dad has frequently said “BOSS spelled backwards is DOUBLE S-O-B!”


My dad promised himself that was the LAST holiday he was going to work at that place.

By the time the next holiday came around, he had a job somewhere else.

And within a few months, he had an even better job. He had to take a significant pay cut at first to take that better job.

When it was hard to do so.

He did get benefits with the job.

And within a few years, he was actually making MORE at that new job with a regular schedule than he made previously working 60 + hours a week at the crappy job where they treated him like a dog.

I sometimes remember that story and how my dad had the integrity to “do whatever it takes” to be able to do what he believed was right with me.

He was not always right (in my opinion). Sometimes he was very wrong.

He did stick to what he believed, and he worked hard to get where he wanted to be.

Even if he had to accept what appeared to be a temporary “setback” to get there.

What is YOUR definition of “personal integrity?” And what is important about that to you?

Matthew 13:12

Matthew 13:12 “For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.”

I found something interesting I wrote almost 19 years ago. I’ll edit it down to what’s “relevant” to this post. I wrote it in November of 2001 in reply to a post Doc (Dr. John M. LaTourrette) did.

“The ocean never gripes because some of the water evaporates into the sky.”

“It always comes back. And the rains of blessing always pour down, where there is plenty, but almost never on the desert.” [Edited for this post.]

End Of Quote From Post.

This reminds me of “For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.”

Even then, though, there is STILL “water in the desert” for the person who knows how to FIND it – and do you know what is so interesting about that?

…In the desert places where they have found a way to get water from the air and plant a garden, and take careful care of that garden for just a couple of years where they are very mindful of what they do and how they do it…

The plants start to take better root.

The area where the garden is planted gets its own “micro-climate.”


The garden starts to grow and thrive almost “on it’s own.”

What have you chosen to do with your garden? Do you let it grow by default? Or do you cultivate it “on purpose?”

What turns you on?

What kind of “vibes” do you give off?

Do you know when you are focused on an emotion (and the thoughts and emotions you have about the emotion) your energy field “gives it away.”

It radiates outward 30 feet or more – and even radiates across distances (this has been verified many, many times).

Yesterday I was doing some work, and I was really stressed about a video I’m working on.

I KNOW the content.

I want to be very mindful about HOW I present the content though, for reasons that are not important to the purpose of this post.

And I went into the default thought / emotion crap hole of “I don’t want to do this wrong. I don’t want to screw this up. I don’t want to … (edited out ‘the thing I don’t want to have happen…’ 😉 ).”

My friend across the room says to me “Are you stressed out?”

Me: “Yeah…”

I went back to work on “Project X.”

My friend came out with a slice of cheesecake and said “Here.”


Then another friend said something to me, took my mind off of the “stressed about X,” and all of a sudden I got distracted, felt good again.

It reminded me that we all have these energies. And we have access to control those energies on our own IF we pay attention to “what turns us on, what lights us up.”

Now “turn on” can be sex energies. Those energies are real important. Life would be BORING without them. Those energies give us powerful drives to get stuff done. It can also be other things. What “turns on your energies?”

Certain types of knowledge “turn me on.” Certain types of food “turn me on.” It’s like a light switch on the wall. Some switches are always off or on. Some switches have an intensity setting, so you get to CHOOSE how much light you give off.

I used to have a DVD on this. Questions? Comments? Want to know more?

How Your Thoughts And Emotions Affect Others

One of my friends on Facebook shared an article she found. (I’ll give you the link to the article at the end of this post.)

There is a very important implication to this. This is an interesting article. I do not know if inanimate objects have a consciousness to them or not. If they do, I do not imagine it’s the way humans have consciousness with ability to have thoughts about thoughts and emotions about emotions. (Meta-Stating)

However, many of us have experienced entering a location that has an emotional tone to it.

I remember one time years ago my mother told me she was helping friends clean a house they were going to move in, and some of the rooms felt “dark and evil.” The couple who moved out had gone through a very bitter separation.

And the emotional tone of their interactions had gotten “attached” to the house.

These concepts are “easy” to test with living individuals.

I’ll get to “inanimate objects” in a moment.

Let’s say you have an argument or are frustrated with your significant other.

And instead of communicating with them, you go and stew about it. That stewing “attaches emotional GUNK” to the relationship and to the other person. (This is why the Bible says “Do not let the sun go down on your anger.”)

What many folks do in addition is they go tell their relative or their friend or anyone who will listen to them gripe and complain – and then the OTHER person also attaches THEIR frustrations, their fears, their insecurities to that other person – “EVEN THOUGH THEY DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH RELEVANT DATA.”

For instance “That guy is just like my daddy, what a jerk!” or “That woman is just like my nagging mother-in-law. You need to drop her like a hot potato!”

These are distortions people attach to others – and then INFECT the relationship with.

There is also a positive side to this – talking about what you like and appreciate and respect about the other person.

It does take at least 5-10 well-formed POSITIVE thoughts to blow out just one negative.

People have these things build up over time, and it infects their minds, their energies, and what they are able to perceive and experience.

I mentioned this happening with inanimate objects.

Did you know when you “gift something to someone” the emotional tone you had while thinking about it gets attached to that gift!

Have you ever had someone give you something because they wanted something in return?

How did that feel to you?

EVEN if it was something you wanted!

Contrast that with someone doing something for you because they like and appreciate you.

That emotional content gets “attached” to the gift.

I remember a funny example of this from years ago. (I won’t go in to more recent examples, since they are “personal.”)

I was attending a seminar my friend was teaching, and we needed notebooks.

So I went to the store and got spiral bound notebooks.

I thought my friend would like a particular color, so I thought to myself (not intentionally, more by default) “Ok, this is his. He should like this. I’ll get this one for him. I don’t like it, but he probably does because of the color.”


It was not with “cuss words” or “swearing.” Most folks do not understand this simple concept.

Easy to verify when you know what to look for.

And the one I LIKED got positive emotions attached to it.

When I got back with the notebooks, he ignored the one I had “cursed” and picked the one I LOVED instead.

I got a funny look on my face, and he instantly knew what I was thinking. He told me “I don’t sort by color. I sort by something else.”

That was one of my first lessons where I started to understand the importance of HOW you think and feel when you do something for someone you care about.

These things are very easy to verify if you know how.

Your emotions and intentions and attention gets attached to the things you do for others.

That does not necessarily mean they will “appreciate” you or what you do.

That is not your responsibility.

You are responsible for how you THINK, how you EMOTE, how you SPEAK – to yourself and to others, and what you DO – your actions.

And those four powers of the mind DO very much affect the people and things around you.
