The secrets of happiness all lie in your Operating System.
The trouble is that we get blinded by our Operating System.
This is because our Operating System attempts to fit what’s happening around us into our Operating System’s expectations.
This is really important to understand.
The purpose of the Human Operating System is to show you as much as possible what matches your Operating System. Anything different is resisted as much as it can be.
It takes all the information around you and;
* Deletes what it thinks is unimportant to you.
* Generalizes other bits into categories, so it can treat them the same.
* Distorts some of it to match up to what you were expecting.
* Gives you an overview report of what it thinks you are most interested in.
So your Operating System is always going to be riddled with flaws and errors. It’s in it’s nature. This is where all progress and evolution comes from. Every flaw and bug you discover and fix in the Operating System is another leap forward in the quality of your life.
The evolution of society comes from the fact that each generation rebels against the previous one. And so each generation discovers a flaw and causes an upgrade in our cultural Operating System.
The established order in every field and every area of life will find itself challenged. And over time flaw after flaw will be discovered about what we previously believed to be fact. This is how life progresses and advances.
For example, we upgraded our Operating System when we discovered that the world wasn’t flat… when we realized that sanitation reduced disease… and when cars were made available to the masses.
Now every day across the world there are hundreds of instances where people are making new discoveries and overturning old beliefs. This is the process of life. Living on the edge and pushing the boundaries and so ever expanding.
If you want some thing, whether it’s a feeling, a relationship or a tangible thing, that you don’t have… it’s your Operating System that is blocking it off to you.
This means you have to identify the flaw in your Operating System that is blocking you from having what you want. Then you transform the structure of your Operating System to let it in.
Opportunities are around you all the time. There is never a boat that you must catch. There is another boarding all the time. It is only the fact that you aren’t seeing the opportunities that stops you from getting what you want.
Why don’t you see the opportunities?
Well the whole purpose of your Operating System is to disregard everything that happens that doesn’t seem to be relevant to you. And so you may disregard lots of these opportunities because the form they come in doesn’t seem obviously relevant to you. This is why the secrets of happiness remain…
Upgrading your Operating System is training it to show you the opportunities all around you. And then life becomes like picking fruit from a tree.
