* The end of dumb pipes [ https://feeds.feedblitz.com/~/644786150/0/sethsblog/posts~The-end-of-dumb-pipes/ ]

The phone company didn’t care what sort of conversation you were having. The call was the call. Same is true for cable–what you watched didn’t matter to them.

The reason retail banks are so frustrating to many customers is that because they began with a geographic focus, they’re dumb about who their customers are. They underserve or overserve in random ways. And in trying to serve everyone, they end up doing a lousy job of serving anyone.

But there’s no longer a reason for a provider to be dumb. They can optimize for you and your needs. They know what you’ve done and they should be able to guess what you might want next. Not to do this to you, but with you and for you.

“You can pick anyone and we’re anyone” is a lousy slogan.

How do you make your pipe smarter than that?

THE LIMITING NIGHTMARE


THE LIMITING NIGHTMARE

The process of getting bound and then unbound is charged with immense significance. The soul gets mixed up with the body and then gets caught up with it.

The soul is like a parrot and the body is like a cage.

When the parrot is outside of the cage it is free, but it does not fully appreciate what freedom is. Not having known confinement, it does not recognize being outside of the cage as “freedom.”

When it goes through encagement, the agonizing bondage causes it to appreciate what freedom really is. Then, when the parrot is set free again, it truly enjoys its freedom.

The same thing happens to the soul, when, through the grace of the Perfect Master, it is freed from the limiting nightmare in which it believes itself to be nothing but its own encaging body.
