Progress. P2. I was blind and now I see the joy of soul in charge.

I don't remember when this sight was lost. It may be several years. I remember when I gained it and held onto it for many years. It was during my activism in Washington DC in roughly the 2008 time frame. This is well after I had left to the death grip of the material world but what happened was an extreme step. I don't remember the

Really hopeful progress. P1. James self liberating from head and flesh tyranny.

James has been working really really really really hard in this direction and seen almost no progress. But maybe that's changing now.
He has spoken in previous posts within the last month of the instrument that he has resurrected and customized for the growth that he understands is required of him now. And those earlier posts on this coach, personal trainer, friend, can easily be found on this blog and should be reviewed.

1.14.20 A tough, important, experience last night. Failure and learning opportunity.


Notice. Thru an oversight James thinks he did not post this when three or four days ago it occurred. This was a really important experience for him and it has helped spark considerable growth since.

 On this peaceful remote Mississippi shoreline about a mile and a 1/2 from the casino is a well paved pull out where multiple times now saw and I have spent the night. And as is not atypical the silence is sometimes broken, sometimes all night long, by someone in a car also in the area pull out with their radio going . Last night was such a thing. James had attempted to go to sleep a little earlier than normal And the music which it turns out was somewhat funneled by the shape of James vehicle and roof, was driving him nuts.  and nothing in his mind that he tried to distract himself was working. He thought he knew who it was, a fela in a older truck that lives out of his truck. And finally, James quite unhappy with himself, he decided to speak to the individual. When he poked his head out he saw it was not that vehicle it was someone else entirely and he decided not to speak to the individual. It seems unlikely that the vehicle saw James but within 10 minutes or so it was gone. 

This was fairly substantial for James. To realize that in some circumstances he was unable to stay with soul in charge that his Flesh could be so empowered, maybe the mind so empowered that they Hi Jack James and drove him nuts. What if James winds up in a torture cell sometime? He frequently thinks for this and tries to be prepared. Such a silly little thing last night showed him he is far from prepared. 

This after yesterday writing at some length his dismay at least with the amount of time that Sorokin has spent in the ways and power of love talking about the would be experts of the sole doing all sorts of atrocities to themselves to free themselves from the tyrany of head and Flash. Upon reflecting on James failure last night he gained some sympathy for their efforts.

I was thrilled to die last night for the soul joy of my murderer.




This only in my imagination, but this was new, and it feels like really really really really important growth. Time will tell. But it feels like really really really really important growth. In a waking dream in the middle of the night I was in a torture cell And was concerned not with the torture happening to me but entirely with the soul of my torturer which itself was being tortured by the head and flesh of this tormented perverted corrupt individual. This is who and what I want to be. For the joy of it.  For the freedom from the straitjacket that otherwise is my head and flesh, that I Revere, but that I do not want to be constrained by. And maybe I am moving in this direction even when I'm awake. Let it be so.

Greta sounds exactly like me 5 years ago on that 50 day water only hunger strike in front of the Canadian embassy, maybe it was only 39 days. At the end of the 420 day round-the-clock occupation. Why is that worth pointing out? Because that's how the soul in charge works. And we need more people, whether the world can be saved or not, we need more people to choose to put their soul in charge for the joy of it.

A Primitive step was understanding fire as a god. Scientific understanding was transformational. Religions are deathly primitive.


The Soul, Supraconscious, in charge, is the Revolutionary. Chooses joy over pleasure every breath.


This is our expected area the next two days. Cold, windy, sunny.

Constant velocity at the knees. Holy Grail, near certainly.


I don't think James has been here before period functionally Iowa seems to equate and be much the same. And many junctures in the last 3 years have been similar. But not the same because now there seems to be a fully conscious competence. Constant velocity stair step at the knees. As

How much stuff you have and want quite accurately measures your Poverty of soul.


They thought universal loving was about "should" instead of "here is the always infinitely joyful, the infinitely preferable being."


Video log. This is what Jesus, Confucius, Buddha, Sorokin, Tolstoy were onto.

The three segments are here. If anything happens to me this is what I had to say. If I'm given more time which seems likely I will be writing much more about this. Don't say I didn't share.

***** Completed, enough. 1/19/20. The cure for cancer buried in a minefield. Reader's guide, The Ways and Power of Love, Sorokin.

The subtitle of this post was and still is, reader's guide to this book which can be a Minefield in which the cure to cancer is to be found.

Well, it is late January 2020, almost. Probably some additional updates will occur but this is sufficient for the one in a million, the two in a Million, dying to be part of Salvation, part of Maybe saving a soul from needless suffering in this world oh, and maybe even a small group.

Possibly the most hopeful book ever written integrating, standing on the shoulders, of hundreds of great Souls throughout history.
Written by an individual of extraordinary intellect, not a heroic Genius of the Soul, no discredit to him. So there is a deadly blindness that must be negotiated by the reader.

  • The most brilliant relentless scholar of maps attempting to Pilot the plane.
  • The most gifted assembler of tools attempting to Sculpt flowers.
  • A passionate healer of the nervous system writing 70 years ago there for without the benefit of current science.
  • Like all except Cheese's, Heaven itself, the optimal Human Experience, is the joy that only comes from loving propagating loving, he seems to miss as well. There really is no hope for anyone or any group unless this is true.
  • Also he seems to miss that we are born loving creatures, we are born of the super-conscious, the million brain. Surprising but he doesn't seem to grasp this. It is a matter of protecting what we are or reigniting it.
  • And of profound importance he seems to not understand at all nor almost anyone he studies understands, it is said that fish are the last to discover water, that the optimal motivator is Joy from loving to propagate loving. That is the simplest road back to our nature is to reconnect us with that joy and the rest happens. His page after page after page after page of the techniques used by others are more likely to be detour than road to destination. We are creatures of head, flesh, and soul, superconscious he calls soul. What is in-charge grows, when head and flesh are in charge they starve soul to death because they have no use for it and only fear. When soul is in charge it exercises all three. Empowering the soul is really as simple as understanding the difference between joy and pleasure, and going for more and more and more and more of that. It is that simple. But we lack examples and words.
  • What would fetishizing eating look like? Hearing? Seeing? The vast majority of heroic altruist cited by Sorokin strike James as doing this. The point is not to criticize these great Heroes. Point is to see the error that may have helped cause so few emulators.
  • Sorokin is called to levels of detail and thoroughness in his subjects that would crush most authors and Scholars. But they can and do Crush readers that are not careful. Most other than detailed Scholars will need to carefully choose which sections of this book to skim or bypass all together so that the big issues, big takeaways, can be embraced and not lost.
  • Brilliantly, rightly, usefully Sorokin gives love five Dimensions two of which are Purity and wisdom as I recall. And yet in his Avalanche of helpful examples he does little to help us differentiate between those that are wise and pure and those that are not. Reader be careful. You must take responsibility for this.
  • Echoing and emphasizing the point just made, on the one hand I am amazed at how I am being persuaded that early in early religious communities a tremendous amount of movement from head and flesh in charge to the soul in charge took place. But I simply share that also I am almost revolted by what strikes me as pathology, sickness, in some of those that early on became Saints as Sorokin understands them, regardless of what religion they maybe from. I think he would have served us much better had he been much more discriminating. Or if he helped us with appropriate caution. I'm thinking that he is a bit smitten with such religious activities  and therefore biased toward them. Approximately halfway through the book James is right now, he has read it at least once before, in a portion where Sorokin is going on and on and on about the painful conversions to Soul in charge of many ancient Saints. And I find it very troubling that night of the Saints North Sorokin seem to be concerned with the degree to which This seems to be really a seeking of self-pleasure rather than a seeking of becoming a greater hope for the world. The latter being just another form of selfish lust, head and flesh, rather than loving to propagate loving, the work of the Soul But with this clearly in my mind I find all portions of the book very helpful none the less. Update. I'm into the details of the various monastic orders of all religions. Years ago when I first read this book I found these really very perverted not in a sexual way. And again I'm finding the same. Really sick. It struck me then and it strikes me now, that if the founders were great Heroes hose loving they did not go through such organizations. Very troubling.
  • 1. 12. 20. Okay. Again. Sorokin and most of the heroes he quotes from from the middle of the book on, has two deadly blind spots. One. Somehow they conclude that one. The only approach is to attack the desires of the head and flesh. 2. Set the ideal is to get rid of those negatives. What the f***? This is not how human beings work. This is not how the soul or the head and flesh work! We are tle illogical. Goal seeking Particularly positive goals. Did none of them realize that there was a preferable way of being to the tyranny of head and Flash?
  • 1.12.20 Sorokin, after seemingly admiring and extolling the perverse masochism of individual after individual after individual honestly puts forth many if not most if not almost all cases this is ineffective and self destructive.
  • 1.15.20 major evolution of James thinking On the monastic practices. https://www.startloving.org/2020/01/james-lifelong-revulsion-distrust-of.html
  • 1.16.20 back to revulsion, after yesterday's comment immediately above. And respect. The substantial degrees these monasteries and their practices approach what is needed, training camp for the would-be Heroic soul in charge. A training camp for the would-be Olympic athletes of Loving. Nothing revolting in that. But somewhere between sad and perverted if the Olympic Training Camp rather than tying itself directly to certain types of performance Place something in between, being pleasing to God, meeting the rules of God, MTG the rules of the camp, the training camp. Submitting totally in blindly to the coach... Such extraordinary room for abuse is created in this although Maybe In some rare instances it would be the best in terms of producing the desired performance in most cases it would dilute what ultimately was desired. And what should be desired is the Soul joyfully in charge and completely free of control and interference by the head and fleshwhich it cherishes but does not submit to.
  • 1.19.20. Some final comments, for now. Baby Einstein early on found major flaws in the theory of Newton. But if so he may well have held on to Newton until he could fully grasp something Beyond. We're James Sorokin has done invaluable work for us the most valuable the James has yet found.
  1. Item. but if so he may well have held onto Newton until he could fully grass something beyond. For James sore open has done invaluable work for us the most valuable the changes yet found.
  2. Item. Way more than any other work that change knows he has shown what all of the great religious thinker is were pointing towards, the Supra conscience, what James understands to be the soul, now fairly well documented as the Olympics system, the mom alien brain.
  3. It must be remembered that this book was published in 1952? The reader today has the benefits of 70 years of crucial history Sorokin did not. And 70 years of science particularly applicable to the delineation of the limbic system, the mammalian brain, the soul.
  4. Spoiler alert, sort of. James tends to find so appalling what he mistook as Sorokin's passionate embrace of monastic practices that to James seemed so perverted, that it distanced James from fully digesting what Sorokin was really offering us, when James first read this book 15 years ago or so. This was a terrible mistake. And in the final conclusions of the book discount that any of this Embrace was any sort of a fetish for Sorokin. Maybe as a great teacher He felt he needed to enable us to go through what he went through To come out on the other side and make the best informed conclusions..... 
  5. And if we honor and intelligently profit from this contribution by Sorokin what then? What if Sorokin had the benefit is being alive today 70 years later, what might he see and embrace? A. That the limbic system is the super-conscious as he calls it, the soul as James calls it. B. Is that the universal enemy is not disease and such things but tribal love The handmaiden of which is hatred. That the joyful war is against that. See. That at the time of Sorokin writing, at the time of Jesus and Buddha, and now, the prize every breath Is not saving Humanity although that would be nice now too late, not even saving another individual, but they personal experience joy of the attempt, of being Creator, loving Creator, being unified with that Force, the conduit for that Force. Later will this last section b error corrected hopefully.
  6.  if for whatever reason you try this book and find yourself discourage or pushed away or disinterested and ready to disconnect one strong suggestion. Go to the conclusions in the Final Chapter.
But this wonderful man Sorokin clearly is blind to several things as almost all the saints have been. The fish is the last to discover water. The experiecial  supremacy in all situations of being loving propagating loving is preferable. It is what the enlightened are greedy for. And when this greed takes over problem solving figures out how to get it even though it if it takes a long time and a lot of personal changes. 

Many of them act as though, yet seem to not recognize in themselves, that they have found being loving propagating loving Feels superior to every experience available through the body and the head. This is certainly the experience of James.

This extraordinary intellect and Great Soul has assembled for those who would be loving propagating loving, a tremendous tool kit, but it can literally Crush the reader it is so vast and with such shortcomings at various crucial points, that care must be taken to avoid that.
Kreator willing, such a brief guide, map, will be available in late January 2020 here.

1.11.20 update.

A. As James continues to study this book he constantly Updates this particular post so please consider checking it regularly especially if you are reading or planning to read the book.

B. It may well be this is post is turning into the reader's guide to that James mentions. He is already feeling that for the serious Reeder it is almost sufficient.

After getting my MBA in 1977, a spoiled rich kid but by then with some academic accomplishments, 0 knowledge of the real world, highly introverted and probably autistic to some degree, I fell into a sales and marketing position.... in the computer industry Dealing with large corporations. For my living I needed to talk to people? I needed to talk to them about products that I thought would be really positive for their business? Talk? This is not something I had ever done. It was absolutely terrifying. But it was go down in flames or somehow figure out how to do this. And I'm remembering that extremely instrumental was finding time, I think in my car, to practice presentations And it was agony to move from my totally complete flat introvert, down tone to gain more and more amplitude. 

But after huge pain and time I began to find that the bars in my verbal and emotional prison began to come down. I was not trying to fake anything. That's impossible for me. But I was trying to unleash my voice and with much pain and practice it happened. And I suppose I have been working on it ever since.

Maybe a slight break through in, James, what are you doing to help? Correct answer? Maybe, Inhabit the world of souls 95% of the time.


This occurred just this morning to James with what seems like an increase clarity. It is pointed to by his 30 or so daily metrics but it may be a common theme that he has been missing and will be helpful to him. His daily examinations and his readings of Sorokin and similar souls Have been nudging him in a direction but it has escaped a clarity to more fully mobilize James energy, harness it, and point it in a direction That can help to fully mobilize James. And

Wow. In Iowa was constant velocity misunderstood as momentum? Seems yes. And stair stepping from one constant velocity to another.



Also A  secondary interest in constant velocity in the lower legs as well. very important to keep it secondary. 

And then the thought occurred. Because of the way things were feeling. That what was constant velocity at the knees and lower legs Was misunderstood as

Major catastrophe looming. And maybe a miracle? Thoughts and

Just this morning this huge Bend in the trailer hitch was seen. In bad visibility last night at slow speed a bad pothole was hit. Maybe that caused the bend or maybe it has been occurring over time. By a miracle there's a shop 18 miles from here, 2 hours if it holds, that can fix it. Thoughts and prayers.







The Phoenix has risen stronger than before. Catastrophe averted narrowly.


Complete replacement, not inexpensive, but totally needed and totally fair. Much stronger now.

James lifelong revulsion, distrust, of monastic orders, horribly too expensive .

James, There are 3 parts of you psychologically. Your entire decades Have worked to teach you that the head and the flesh are the normal part, the natural part, the healthy parts, the part that is essentially human. Thereby totally denigrating the

Cycling, a revolution for James? Savoring the small round object with the knees.


only day 3 or 4 this is inconclusive. But likely to be sustained. 

 Detail may come in days forward if it continues to be so outstanding. 

Item. Not intuitive, counter intuitive. But now discovered and understood brilliant. Makes perfect sense. The machine can operate smoothly if the joints at the knees remains in Near perfect Timing,

Important realization. The misery level around historical great Souls was like that that the human species is now descending into. Solving the material problem was not an option then or now. Confucius, Buddha, Jesus....


1.13.2020

Note to James. Consider this. There is no sustainable life that is not devoted to the well being of all life.


 Comes to mind does this thought With a wonderful poem from a friend this morning. And this post is not to pick on the poem. But as much as in the 1st reading it was liked, and only one reading so far, It raises a long held concerned by James that Almost always approximating the joy of participating with creator, loving Creation, gets perverted into a personal amusement. I mean if loving creation is the force of life, being In contact with it is very positive, no? Yes. But tragically the human nervous system in this slaughterhouse culture these last 7000 years knows how to not continue to unity with that force but rather to use it as an amusement. 

 As yet another pleasure. 

Yesterday someone stopped by the side of the road in their car and wanted to talk so James stopped. pleasant conversation. Both glad that we had it. Burning up his life traveling through all 48 States to Stir a soul instead of immediately burning it up in front of a American slaughterhouse for South American children. The individual was respectful. Yes, I'm a Christian the individual said but I think the buddhists were very correct and I choose to distance myself from the worst horrors of the world. Respectfully and compassionately James shared in return, I find life Exactly in turning toward the emergencies and metabolize in them enough to feed my work without extinguishing my flame. Life only happens in the face of emergency James has Experienced and believed almost all of his adulthood. A central paradox. If you would hold on to your life you will lose it

1.12. Today's saving graces. Cycling. New ball game.

Today's saving graces. 

Item. Friction disk is always a disk and never not friction, never mechanical interface with the vehicle.

Item. Amazingly Rolling roiling the 3 and a 1/2 inch sphere at the knees strictly adhering to the 2 points above.

Update. Eureka? Maybe so. Savoring Experiencing the spiracle object at the knee. 

 In recent weeks occasionly the notion has come forth of savoring the roiling gap very brief between frousting and withdrawing. Several days ago some experience of a round object at the knees came back quite surprisingly. 

This morning and in this now two hour plus journey the 2 concepts merged and it feels very promising. Savoring constant participation Felt vaguely at the knees with the round object being roiled by the knees.
