Hey man, good to see you again. I wonder why we’ve never talked like this before.
It probably came from Flo’s thing about having conversations in his head with other people when he wants to figure things out. You said in response that you talk to the Hero that is Eddy. Well, did you really? You tried to be me, to see through my eyes and assume my internalized philosophies…but you and I never sat down and just talked.
God this feels weird. We’ve never talked one on one before. I actually see you as external.
I see you as external as well, though not as external as you see me…I understand you well.
Yeah. We’re different…yet we understand eachother as well as we understand ourselves. Or roughly so.
Ah! You know, I just realized one thing I like about youme. You don’t speak unless you have something worth hearing to say.
And you craft your words so that what is worth saying comes across as clearly as possible.
Ok, so why did we meet here?
Well, in part we met here to try this. To see if it works. You and I both feel skepticism…but I, of course, take note of that and treat this as an experiment. At the moment, you sometimes have trouble letting go of your bias through the experiment. Try it.
Okay. This is just an an experiment. We’re going to see what happens. Uhm, I want a hypothesis. Something to measure against.
Okay. The hypothesis is that this will allow me to see myself and my issues as I see those of others. You will be able to advise me from your higher seat of clarity as we sometimes do for others who come to us with issues and thoughts.
Nice. Yes. Let me restate that to keep it solid in our mind.
Our hypothesis is that, by having a written conversations with each other here on paper, I, the Hero of Eddy, will be able to advise you, Current Eddy, as I would advise a completely separate person. And so bring you closer to me, as we both desire you to be.
So. What’s up?
Okay. So there’s a bunch of stuff
Boom, right there. A BUNCH of stuff. Narrow it down to one, man. Just one. Then keep that in your head. You can deal with that…then the next one…and the next…all the while only having one thing in your focus at any given moment.
What is the most enjoyable one focus you can have now?
Well, now the focus is this conversation.
After this is a mapping of how I wish this day to unfold.
Then the focus will be on the unfolding, starting with a great mission, then learning as rest, and then back to great missions, and ending with the low level work that is email and the like.
Talk with the Hero of Eddy. Plan day (start high, then learn, then high, then low, then complete rest).
Shit, low battery.
Turn off wifi. Dim screen. Go quickly (and while maintaining focus) inquire about outlet.
You know what’s interesting. I just realized, while doing that, that much of the Hero of Eddy is made up of past philosophies I had once. My understanding of the universal language and how everyone understands everyone else’s truth (which completely explains my inability to connect with people…..I’m doing it in a conniving way!). My playfulness and lack of worry and confidence in ability regardless of situation.
Hmm, when I hit a brain blank, what is ideal for me to do? In the words of…someone… it is best to stop in the middle of something. In the middle of a sentence, even.
Yeah! Nice catch man.
Okay, so let’s move onto the next ‘lack-of-clarity’ I have. My motivation is sapped.
Does it remain sapped when you know that all you have to do, the only thing that matters, is planning your day?
Kinda. Not as much but kinda. Part of it is just that I know it’ll be hard. This rad music is nice.
By hard you mean uncomfortable. More uncomfortable than that gnawing feeling of slacking off?
No. Definitely not.
And, of course, the rule of 5ths. It’s 1/5th as uncomfortable as you expect it to be, and 5x as enjoyable as you expect it to be.
The key as we both know is to just start and continue for 1 session. It’s that easy. Stay focused, and you’ll stay focused.
Righto. I’ll plan my day here, and build into it a trip to Farmer’s Yard to shower and all that…while listening to a good podcast of course. Then off to a nice cafe for a great day of creation via Asus.
Ah, how we love our wordplay.
Hey, remember the comma? We have such an awareness and understanding of it’s use because, at first, it was beyond us. So we focused, with the help of a great teacher, on understanding and mastering it…and now we rock with the comma! When we fail at something we desire, we must simply persevere in achieving it and understanding it. This will ensure mastery.
“A master is simply one who has made all the mistakes one can make in a narrow field”
This has been good so far. Is there anything else we should talk about. Yes, there is.
Women! Love! Loneliness! Ah, Hero of Eddy, how do I approach this.
What do you desire?
What do I desire. I desire to find a few amazing and interesting women. And to spend my time with them with full expression of my desire and sexuality, but in a way that dances with who they are and what the world is around us at any given moment. Truth to myself, awareness and flow with what is, and the ability to guide that flow while keeping it in flow.
Nice. Very nice. How would you achieve that?
The Socratic method requires trust. Great trust in one’s ability to solve one’s own problems. For the suggestions of others are never accepted as deeply as the suggestions of ourselves are. The Socratic method is simply the art of asking the right questions.
Hmm, nice. Save that for saving. Okay, so how would you achieve a situation where you know a few sexy and amazing women who are awesome, who you spend time with doing fun things, who you are real and honest and sexual with, while dancing in the flow of what is towards what you desire?
Okay. Well to spend time with them requires time and the ability to spend it doing wonderful things. Money helps there. So does the knowledge that my time with them is improving my complete enjoyment by serving as rejuvenation from what was an intense, regular, and creative previous state.
Both of those mean intense focus and energy put into creating, as well as creative ways to relax.
Okay, so that’s the first step. Deep focus and energy on creating what I want (which is in part getting money, of course).
The second step is spending time with them. All that requires is spending time with awesome people as often as possible. Easy. Also, inviting people to do enjoyable things together. So keep up to date with what is going on that is awesome and, if nothing awesome is happening, devote that time to creation.
Right. Next step? How would be able to be honest and sexual around them.
Ah, this one is a not as easy. It requires failure.
It is simple though. Simply follow fear to it’s root…then exercise that root. By doing it.
You will be afraid of touching her. So, while keeping in touch with the flow, touch her. And congradulate yourself on doing so.
Should the result be negative, take a look at what happened and see if you can better stay in and guide the flow next time.
There it is.
There it is.
To codify that:
A) All time that is not spent enjoying and connecting with awesome people doing awesome rejuvenating things will be spend creating.
B) Rest time will be spent planning rejuvenating enjoyment.
C) Identify and exercise the root of fears. Feel pride when having done so. Then analyze result so the next one will be even more enjoyable.
Nice. I’ll TK that myself.
Okay, anything else?
No. Oh how light hearted I feel, literally, at having a concrete solution to this previous confusion.
See if anything else makes you feel heavy of heart.
Not to worry. Continue along the path you now follow, improved with aforementioned creation/rejuvenation cycle. Survive off ‘rations’. Money will be earned in small time.
