I'm actually having an incredible time doing Variables. These morning workshops are turning out to be the most spectacular thing I've ever been involved with. It's fascinating to see what is possible in the different cognitive groups that are there. And in looking at Variable, one of the elements that we look at is the element that is rooted on the Personality side of the chart and is connected to the Personality Node. This Personality Node is enormously important, because what it represents is our unique potential for differentiated perspective. We are here to see uniquely.
Now, when you're looking at your Node, if it's Left, if the arrow is Left, that Personality Node is saying to you you're only supposed to see what you're supposed to see; nothing else. And if you're not correct, guess what you do? You do the opposite. You see all the things, look for all the things that you’re going to be useless at and never look at the things that you're supposed to be looking at. These are the Left viewers. The Left viewers need to look exactly at the thing that they're supposed to be looking at.
Now, if you’ve got a Right view, the Right view sees what it's not supposed to see. And the moment that it thinks that it's supposed to see something is the moment it's blind. We have a very specific way in which seeing leads to awareness. But you cannot get to this place, you can’t just walk up to it and say, “This is going to be me,” because it doesn't work that way.
The whole dilemma with seeing is that it starts with your Strategy and Authority, but mostly is about what you're putting in your mouth. In order for me to be able to do what I'm doing now, which is to be able to take every Variable group through their particular mechanics, I've spent many, many years with a lot of very dedicated students going through the deep infrastructure that is there below the line.
One of the most profound things in Human Design is Primary Health System. And what makes it so important is that it is a key to the ability to be able to establish an inspiring platform, because this is what we are about. We are a platform for consciousness. As a platform for consciousness, when you begin to operate according to your Strategy and Authority, this does not enhance your seeing. It begins to align you to what is correct. You begin to move without resistance, you begin to take the pressure out of the body. But the body has to be purified. The brain has to be fed correctly.
It is only when you're nourishing your brain correctly that the possibilities of what perception can be for you come alive. The most difficult thing about Human Design is that it is the most intellectual knowledge you will ever meet and the joke is that all that is pointless if you're not looking after your body. It’s the real joke. It's incredibly intellectual. We can talk about stuff until the cows go home, or whatever. But the reality is that all of this is in the body, it’s only when the vehicle is correct. This is the whole story, because this is the cognitive platform.
You want to see? You have to see from a platform that's correct, because the moment that your vehicle is correct, the moment that you’re in the right environment is the moment you've got the right perspective. And then you can see. And if you’re Left and you’re strategic, you'll be able to focus, and you’ll be able to focus on what you're supposed to see, because that’s where your gift is. It's where your magic is.
We long ago lost our sense of magic; truly, long, long ago lost the sense of wonder and magic of what it is to be here on this plane. This is an incredible thing, this maia. And it is an incredible thing that is there to absorb us fully with its potential. But we’ve got to be able to slide through this world. There’s too much struggling.

The right dietary regimen enhances the neural development. It doesn't close it down. Because what's happening to you when you eat according to your dietary regimen is that you're taking in precisely what is correct for you to nourish your difference.
We all have times when we notice our mind is working well, and we also tend to be more familiar than we’d like with the times our mind doesn’t seem to work at all. In such moments we can find ourselves wondering...
Perhaps one of the most insightful aspects about this knowledge is the ability to see exactly how the unique mind works, both as Not-Self and in terms of its potential as differentiated awareness.
In many ways, environment sets you irreversibly on a new course of consciousness. It is one of the most beautiful things I have seen in all the years I’ve worked with this knowledge: the Design Nodes.
One of the most extraordinary things about the knowledge of Human Design is understanding that each of us have a unique way in which we are designed to take nutrition into our body.
One of the major problems we have in education is that it is based on a methodology that is rooted in, what in Design terms is called, the Strategic.
