    Can external forces implant things which seem like a good idea at the time, but are actually self destructive (i.e negative self talk)?

    They are the only source of it. Your true self, your Spirit/Soul/Essence cant be fooled by anything, its impossible. It knows and will always know the truth of everything there is to know about life (and theres nothing outside of life.) The Mind on the other hand operates completely differently than the Spirit. The Mind can be and IS fooled all the time. It will allow you to believe lies like "you cant do this" or "you dont deserve that" or "thats for somebody else but not me." Ideas like this can only be produced by the mind and therefore only understood by the mind, which cleverly allows the source producing the external force to BYPASS the Spirit level and keep you creating within the level of the mind. Shut off to your Spirit aka TRUTH and not reaching our full creative potential because of it. The Mind is an amazingly powerful tool but most of us misuse it because we dont understand how it works and what it does. Every single self doubting/disbelieving thought we have had and will ever have came from an external force, it didnt come from You. Because your Spirit in its all knowing Truth, is not capable of lying to itself - only the Mind allows you to believe lies about yourself and what you can do.

    In its simplest form it is this: If You don't listen from within, You will go without.

    p.s. external forces NEVER stop implanting or trying to implant those kinds of things in your mind. which is why the more you give them your attention the less successful you will be.

    You make some very good points. I agree with pretty much everything you said. However the ego is not the useless redheaded step child some people make it out to be. Example you see a kid wandering into the street about to get hit by a car, are you going to say "Excuse me child, I want to be all of Love and not put you on a negative vibration but" BAM too late the kid get's hit. Or are you going to yell out "HEYY!! KID!!!"

    I think it's important to use both spirit and ego and in turn not only abusing intuition, but also trying to use logic as well. Balance and equilibrium is the key to everything, there have been many bodybuilders who got great results training intuitively and many bodybuilders who got great results using a program. Ultimately too much of anything can be a downfall. I.e Dorian was so into his program he ended up not listening to his body and injuring himself out of bbing. Whereas if he would've been more intuitive he could've perhaps continued his reign a lot longer. I think Arnold was a perfect example of what is achievable when you combine the power of the mind and a well implemented structure. I.e he didn't have the greatest calves, but through experimentation and a well thought out plan he was able to bring them up to becoming a good body part.

    It's eastern philosophy/mysticism influenced thought... Our idea of intuition comes almost entirely from Daoist thought as do ideas of depriving the ego come from Zen Buddhism.

    agreed.. anyone interested in this kind of thing look up intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation, and even some sport psychology stuff

    What I mean is you can call it what you want or put a fancy name on it but it ultimately its just what it is. Putting names on things only mucks things up because words have massive potential to be misunderstood.But you are right yes.

    Well There is nothing healthy about the Ego actually. The only thing the Ego can create is the imbalance your talking about. And your right, the more in balance your body mind and spirit are the greater your success will be. It all depends on finding your perfect balance Much Love brotha thanks for your posts =].
