Unlearning to Learn

Posted By: Randy GageApril 8, 2013

Most people think of me as a teacher.  But while my work appears to be teaching, the truth is, it’s mostly not about learning new things – as it is about unlearning old things.

The essence of my work (and the essence of any true enlightened discipline of spiritual development) is about recognizing the true nature of people, to free them from delusions, memes and other limiting beliefs.   We’ve been programmed to love myths and mysticism, but these usually lead to dogma, doctrines and superstition – and take us away from real clarity.

A healthy baby who has been nurtured appropriately is the perfect demonstration of prosperity in action.  That young being lives in the now, yet at the same time, in anticipation of good things happening to them and for them.  It is only as we (un)develop, that we pick up all the baggage most people carry around.

Once your mind is stripped of it’s misconstructions, the whole world around you and your daily life can become the source for your enlightenment.

  1. Hi RG,
    We are born unlimited and remain unlimited until we believe otherwise. Picking up and accepting beliefs from people who did not hold this unlimited view of self is the cause of disharmony in the world. Excellent point here.
    Being happy and prospering is about releasing more than acquiring. By letting go low energy, false ideas you are free to be the light you always were. A steady unpeeling of limiting beliefs, that is success, or happiness, or enlightenment. Letting go what is false to allow truth to shine through.
    We have the lessons, we know, we are it. We are what we seek, now. Look within. Unlearn. Uncover. Shine. The quick way to becoming wise is to release blocks. Releasing blocks grows easier after reading posts like these.
    Thanks Randy,
    Ryan

  2. I feel the old program as a large marsh, which is sucking  people and me also inside. And for those who managed to escape, like you Randy :),  they are running around and helping others to get out- stretch arm, throw the ropes, tell have they have done it ...
    And yes, we have learn to live without the marsh, but first we have to get rid of it.

  3. OK Randy.. this is TRULY a profound post.. In fact it's ONE of the MOST profound of all...So before I forget.. Thank you.
    Using the young child as the metaphor is perfect. When I hear people use the word 'should' it always kicks in my knee jerk response "Excuse me, but did someone hand you a rule book when you were born?".. I sure didn't get one, so questioning the 'rules' is always what I'm about.. Where there are 'should's' there is lack thinking.
    Letting go is the Path... And it's my intention to release old programming more and more each day.. I'm deeply grateful for you sharing this today.

  4. How very Zen.
    I agree- when we are children we absorb everything around us like a sponge.
    If are parents are successful and happy, we are more likely to be successful and happy.
    If our parents work a job they hate or even struggle and make excuses for their life, we will do the same.
    Living in the moment can be difficult, but it is transcendent when you can do it.
    What i am working on in my journey is learning to have faith that good things will happen and good people will come into my life.
    It's a challenge worth undertaking.

  5. We have to "unlearn" (mediocrity)  to learn prosperity principles,  and embrace abundance, YES.

  6. Living in the moment and looking towards a bright future is the only mindset worth having. We all have a choice to think about what we think about. There is no limit to the amount of prosperous ideas you can have. It is really best to think that way.

  7. @Randy_Gage My heart is in this cause Randy brother. It's Strength and Honor at stake! (Maximus from Gladiators) Your very welcome!

  8. RyanKBiddulph  I really like where you wrote:   Being happy and prospering is about releasing more than acquiring.  That's profound, thanks!

  9. When I was under 5 yo, I was adamant that nothing besides what I could see existed and that it was made only for me to see. I imagined the facade of buildings propped up with nothing behind them. I thought that if I decided to walk a different street, someone would have to quickly build the front of buildings to make it appear real.
    Strange how it took me so long to figure out that what I knew as a 5yo was, with some small changes actually true.
    The web of twisted rules and regualtion, falsehood, myth and legend  we are fed along all our lives is so far from the truth that to speak the truth out loud would have us locked up for sure.

  10. I've met 'would-be' potential first homebuyers who can't make the leap into buying a home because of borrowing fears that they've picked up from their parents. Some well-intentioned parents might roll out the old classic, 'if you can't pay cash for something, you have to do without!' But this 'old school' technique of saving up cash for your first home is much harder to do these days. As soon as you make some headway in your savings and a place appears within reach, the market can boom, leaving you way behind the eight ball. So how can someone 'unlearn' this fear of borrowing? Opening up oneself to sound evidence rather than drowning in irrational fears is probably a good place to start.

  11. Mel Laurence I'd be more inclined to agree with the idea of using your own money to get a good head start.
    Personally, I think younger people might do better to learn how to leverage the money they do have rather than borrow their way to success.
    Using credit to take a risk is something to consider though, but you'd have to ask yourself if you'd be OK with the consequences of said risk.
    Things do not always pan out the way we want them to, no matter how well intentioned. 
    Being able to deal with things when they don't is something we can all learn.

  12. 1Marc Speaking your mind doesn't get you locked up, it either brings people out of the woodwork to criticize you, ignore you, or even pull you down.
    Sometimes though, it brings out people who are just as crazy (if not more so) who are doing something with their lives who are supportive.

    Just as crazy if not more .. ha ha, thank you Thomas. 
    I am reading Robert Sheinfeld and loving it.
