・・・だってさ。

恋愛で悩まないためのこころのトレーニング!

■潜在意識は全てを知っている

 あなたも、今まで訪れたこともない異国の地でなぜだかとても懐かしい気持ちになったり、始めて会ったみず知らずの他人に対して、わけもかわらず、妙に親近感を覚えたりなどという経験を一度や二度はされたことがあるのではないでしょうか?

 こういう現象は、一般的にはデジャブと呼ばれていますが、神秘学の世界においては、デジャブは脳の錯覚などではなく、あなたがあなたの潜在意識に貯えられている記憶の一端をたまたま垣間見たことから生じる現象と考えます。

 昨今では、人間の幸せの大部分は、脳の機能により左右されるという説がまかり通っているようですが、いくら脳の機能を高めたとしても、例えば、特殊な訓練を通してIQを高めることに成功したとしても、恋愛で幸せを得ることが出来るとは限りません。幸せは、脳のレベルを超えたこころの次元に存在するからです。脳は、高次元の意識を現実生活における客観的精神のレベルへ変換する精巧なハードの役割を担います。

 ところで、わたしたちは、誰もがこころの奥底では、幸せになる方法を知っています。それは、わたしたちの潜在意識が、わたしたちの経験を全て記憶しているからです。ですから、潜在意識に上手に働きかけ、幸せな恋愛の記憶だけを引き出すことが出来れば、あなたが恋愛で悩むことはなくなるはずです。

■恋愛は全てを肯定することからはじめましょう

 潜在意識から幸せ恋愛の記憶を取り出すために最初に必要なことは、あなたの持つ否定的な思考を全て捨て去ることです。

 潜在意識には、あなたの命令に対して、一切疑問を挟まないという性質があります。もし、あなたが、現実における過去の苦い恋愛経験から恋愛に対して否定的な思考を持ってしまっているとすれば、あなたの潜在意識はそれを素直に受け入れ、服従します。

 潜在意識に深く刻まれた否定的な記憶は、いずれは、現実世界における習慣へと成長し、あなたにとって、恋愛で否定的な思考を持つことが、当たり前となってしまいます。そうして身についた恋愛否定グセに立ち向かうのは非常に困難です。

■幸せ恋愛トレーニング

 それでは、潜在意識に働きかけて、幸せな恋愛を呼びこむための簡単なトレーニングを始めてみましょう。

 夜眠る前に、記憶をたどりながら、出来るだけ昔にさかのぼってみましょう。ある出来事(恋愛に関わることでなくても良いです)を思い出したら、その場にしばらくとどまって、自分自身をじっくりと観察します。

 その光景が、肯定的で楽しいものである場合には、その時感じた幸せな感情をかみしめてください。反対に、否定的な場面では、その場で犯した過ちを素直に受け入れて、十分に反省したら、その時、本来であれば、自分が取るべきであった正しい言動を思い浮かべてください。

 毎晩、たったこれだけのことを習慣的に続けるだけで、あなたの潜在意識は書き換えられ、潜在意識に刻まれた肯定的な記憶とのつながりが確立します。そうすると、恋愛で悩みを抱えた時に、あなたは、静かに自分自身のこころに問いかけるだけで、常にあなたにとって最高の答えを手に入れることが出来るようになり、いずれは恋愛で悩むことすらなくなってしまうはずです。

Cashback

Lines from Cashback:

It takes approximately 500 pounds to crush a human skull.
But the human emotion is a much more delicate thing.

What is love anyway?
And is it really that fleeting?
I took the bus with no real place to go.
I watched the landscape slowly change as it clung to the last hours of sunlight,
before leaving me to get another sleepless night.

Time manipulation is not a precise science.
Like any art, it's personal to the individual.
So what is the art in making my shift go so fast?

I imagine the opposite.
That time is frozen.
I imagine the remote control for life has been paused.
I'm able to walk freely within this frozen world, and unnoticed.
Nobody would even know that time had stopped.
And when it started back up again,the invisible join would be seamless except for a slight shudder.
Not unlike the feeling of somebody walking over your grave.

That moment when you see someone walking down the street
who is so beautiful you just can't help but stare...
Well, imagine as I do, that with the world on pause
it becomes very easy to understand the concept of beauty.
To have it frozen in front of you.

Captured.

Unaware.

And I'm bored of saying the same thing, and I'm bored of feeling shit about it.
And most of all I'm bored of being awake 24 hours a day.

I wanted to freeze time.
I wanted to savor that moment.
To live in that moment for a week.
But I couldn't stop it.
Only slow it.
And before I knew it, she was gone.
After the door closed, I felt like the last person on earth.

Crush.

It's funny how the same word for the feeling of attraction
can be used for the feeling of disappointment.

I often wonder what it would be like
to spend the rest of my life with the world on pause.

To live out the rest of my life between two fractions of a second.
To die of old age, and then have time continue.
The young me gone, and a dead old man in my place.
Was I spending too much time in this frozen world?
It felt safe, untouchable.
But how safe is anyone's world?
Knowing what you want is half the battle.

Most people go through their whole lives not knowing what they want.
It's easy to find if you know what you're looking for.
You can speed it up, you can slow it down.
You can even freeze a moment.
But you can't be rewind time.
You can't undo what is done.

Once upon a time, I wanted to know what love was.
Love is there if you want it to be.
You just have to see that it's wrapped in beauty
and hidden away between the seconds of your life.
If you don't stop for a minute,
you might miss it.

Cats

I like cats. Girls are like cats. So I like girls, too. I like girls. Girls are like cats. So I like cats, too. Does this make sense at all?

How to Work When You're Tired

It's random, but just posting this as a reminder to myself.

http://www.dumblittleman.com/2010/01/how-to-work-when-youre-tired.html

We all have days when we just don’t feel with it. Maybe we were up late the night before, maybe we slept badly, or maybe we’re simply tired for no clear reason. But when you’ve got work to do – whether in your day job, on your small business or around the house – then you can’t just go back to bed. You want to stay alert, make the most of your time, and avoid getting distracted or making silly mistakes.

Here’s how to work when you’re tired:

Be Clear About What You Want to Accomplish
It’s always a good idea to have a clear goal in mind, but especially when you’re feeling tired or otherwise sub-par. Sit down and think what you need to get done today. If you’re working on a big project, what exactly are you going to get done? The next chapter? That section with the statistics you need to look up? If you’re spring cleaning, don’t just do whatever catches your eye – make a plan.

It’s very easy to start meandering into lots of unrelated tasks, if you don’t have a clear focus on what you want to accomplish. I’m sure you’ve had days where you’ve looked back and wondered where your time went – well, this is how to make sure you spend your time on something worthwhile!


Get Ruthless About Distractions
Again, this is always good advice – but when you’re tired, it counts double. Stay out of your email, don’t log into Facebook, and don’t keep taking breaks from the task at hand. It’s so easy to get distracted when you’re not focusing well, and it only makes it harder to concentrate.

You know what it’s like to “just check Facebook” and spend the next hour looking at your cousin’s holidays snaps; so every time your attention wanders, direct it straight back to what you’re supposed to be working on.


Drink Plenty of Water
Dehydration saps your concentration – so make sure you’re sipping water regularly if you’re tired. Although caffeine can supply a temporary boost of energy, try to go easy on the coffee: you’ll only crash otherwise. (Ditto for sugary sodas.)

I like to keep a bottle of water on my desk, within easy reach: because it’s next to me, it’s easy to remember to drink from it, and because the bottle has a screw cap, there’s no chance I’ll accidentally tip it into my computer’s keyboard!


Keep Moving Around
If you’re feeling sleepy, the worst thing to do is to sit down somewhere warm and comfy – you’ll almost certainly nod off! Instead, make sure you move around frequently: get up and stretch, go for a brisk walk, get your body temperature up a bit. This is an especially good idea if you get that mid-afternoon slump: walking around will shake it off.


Take a Shower
Getting into a shower will really wake you up when you’re feeling sluggish. If you’re struggling to even get out of bed, head straight for the shower: as soon as you’re under that running water, you’ll feel considerably more alive!

If you work from home, a mid-afternoon shower can be a great pick-me-up when you’re tired. If you’re in an office, splashing your face with cold water can be a good refreshing alternative.


Perform Easier Tasks
If you’re feeling really tired but you still need to get some work done, try doing your more routine tasks: things like replying to emails, filing documents, making minor website updates, and so on. Often, your energy will naturally pick back up while you work.

How do you cope when you’re tired and you need to carry on working?

ただ、その時間を誰かとシェアしたいだろうか?
特にそういう気持ちにはならない。

いや、むしろその時間をシェアしたいと思えるような人が
誰もいないのかもしれない。

No Wonder Why California is Broke

From New York Times article:

Use of Taxpayer Money for Jackson Service Draws Criticism

Published: July 8, 2009

LOS ANGELES — The talent has exited stage left and the tears have been dried, but the discord over the cost of the memorial service for Michael Jackson held in downtown Los Angeles on Tuesday appears to be escalating.

At Jackson Memorial, Music and Mourning (July 8, 2009)
Blowout Ratings for a Farewell, Online and Off (July 9, 2009) On Tuesday, the city attorney, Carmen Trutanich, took the highly unusual step of appearing during the public comment period of a City Council hearing to announce that his office was investigating how Los Angeles taxpayers came to foot a bill for police protection and other city functions at the service, at a time when the city and state are running out of money.

On Wednesday, the city controller, Wendy Greuel, sent a stern letter to the Los Angeles emergency management department demanding to know why it had spent $48,826 on sandwiches from a deli 80 miles from Los Angeles to feed police officers. (Sandwiches from Subway would have cost $17,491.25, she pointed out.)

“Rest assured our office is investigating how this whole phenomenon occurred from the get-go,” Mr. Trutanich said when addressing the council.

Two City Council members have also challenged the expenditure, and on Wednesday the radio airwaves, blogs and Twitter feeds crackled with criticism.

“I admit I shed a tear with Mariah, Queen and Paris,” said Jody Greenblatt, a pharmaceutical executive who lives in Los Angeles. “But I cry more at the thought of teachers’ pink slips, forced furloughed days, unemployment rates sky high and a state bankrupt.”

Sarah Hamilton, a spokeswoman for the city, said the final cost to the city of the memorial at the Staples Center was $1.4 million.

The unusual public outcry in the politically atomized Los Angeles underscores both the dire straits of the city — with its $320 million budget gap and 11.4 percent unemployment rate — and its difficulty in raising money from wealthy entertainment-industry leaders.

The fallout from the memorial could also prove to be an embarrassment for Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa, who was out of the country during the memorial and whose efforts to stave off costs and criticism amounted to a fund-raising request on his office’s Web site . Ms. Hamilton said $17,000 in donations came in via the city’s Web site, but it has suffered prolonged server crashes.

Last month, the mayor scrambled to line up private donations to pay for a victory parade for the Los Angeles Lakers after a police union official criticized the city’s plans to split the $2 million cost of the parade between the team and taxpayers. Among those who contributed were the usual cast of generous donors to Los Angeles events, like Eli Broad, Casey Wasserman and Jerry Perenchio.

“There is a good, strong culture of philanthropy in L.A.,” said Rich Caruso, a Los Angeles developer who plays host to several public events each year. “But it is a handful of people and usually always the same people.” He added: “I think it’s an outrage that taxpayers paid for that memorial. The Jackson family should pay for it.”

Two council members have also suggested that the Jackson family help defer costs. Jesse Derris, a spokesman for the Jackson family, said the family was unavailable for comment.

The Anschutz Entertainment Group, the owner of Staples Center and the promoter of Mr. Jackson’s planned concert series in London, donated the center for the event, but has also been a focus of requests for help to pay for its related costs. (Tickets were free and distributed via lottery.) Calls to the company were not returned.
