Stuff That Makes a Difference

"Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ignorance Is The Only Evil


The truth we all deserve. Ignorance is the only evil in life! Love, knowledge and harmony are the tools to abolish all evil, which will result in the ability to see life as it should be seen. We all have an unlimited supply of love, energy, power, ideas & resources that can alter any of life's situation to your desired outcome. The sad thing is that when someone, or some situation presents itself to us, we fail to acknowledge it's presence which leads to failure or disappointment. I personally came from nothing and ended up with the ability to see, feel & manipulate the unlimited supply of intelligence, and abundance that is offered to us all. Through experience, pain, pleasure, isolation and a burning desire to obtain all that the universe has to offer, I've received more than I could of ever imagined. I am now trying to share the gift of life to all who seek it.

It's Time You Get Rich!!!!!



So you've read Think and Grow Rich, and you've got an intellectual understanding that you "become what you think about."You have a list of affirmations about wealth, and you recite them every day.

But you still have no money Wealth does not seem to be anywhere around.

What's the deal here? According to Napoleon Hill, author of Think & Grow Rich, you ought to be filthy stinkin' rich, right?

Well, here is the real deal: If you are not "Wealth Conscious", than all this thinking, and all this affirming is not going to bring you wealth. Thinking, and affirming are simply actions you are taking. But they are just PART of the sequence of creating wealth. If you skip the FIRST step, you simply can't get anywhere.

So what's the first step?

Being.

To attract wealth, you first have to BE wealthy. THEN, you think wealthy thoughts, speak wealthy affirmations, and take wealthy action.

"But how can I BE wealthy if I am NOT wealthy?" you ask. Logical question, but it's based on the false assumption that you don't have wealth. You HAVE wealth. You're simply not aware of it. You have constructed a physical reality that prevents you from experiencing Wealth. This can all be explained with the science of Quantum Physics. So let's look at some very basic concepts of Quantum Physics that will explain what I'm talking about.

First, you probably are aware - at least on an intellectual level - that at a subatomic level, we, and everything else in the Universe, is Energy. When you break everything down, we're all made of the same stuff, and we're all connected. The Universe is just this huge ocean of Energy, vibrating at various frequencies which gives the illusion of individuation. That is, we experience the illusion of separateness from each other, physical objects, and wealth because our "senses" are decoding the Energy around us in such a way as to create our physical reality.

This all happens in our thoughts.

So, to simplify things quickly here for the sake of time (another illusion), "things" only exist because we observe them. It is in our observing that things come into existence. Without our observing, things are simply "waves" - probabilities of existence. Physicists agree on this.

Our beliefs are a very powerful Energy system in our lives. Our beliefs allow or disallow certain experiences in our lives, including wealth. They make up who we are. We "BE" in the world according to our beliefs. If we are being is "someone who is trying to get wealthy by repeating affirmations," then THAT is what our reality will be. We will just be TRYING to get wealthy.

We have to make the decision that we ARE wealthy, contrary to any external physical evidence. That evidence is an illusion based on the belief systems that have guided who we have been being up to that point.

A truly wealthy person isn't wealthy because they have money. They have money, because they are wealthy! That's the distinction that most people have backward!

Here's an example to illustrate what I mean:

Tony Robbins became a millionaire at a very young age. Then, due to a series of poor judgments, he lost it. But within a year, he had it back. How did he do this? HE NEVER LOST HIS WEALTH. He only lost his money, which is just a symbol of wealth! Because he is "Wealth Conscious", he literally "magnetically attracts" wealth into his life. He truly can't help it! It's who he is! And there are thousand out there like him, who attract wealth simply because it's who they are. You can make the same decision and have the same results.

Conversely, a person who has grown up with "lack consciousness" can win millions in the lottery and lose it within a year. Their consciousness - their ENERGY - simply can't maintain the attraction to Wealth because they aren't "wealthy" in who they are being.

Wealth is a Decision

But again, Wealth is a decision. If you aren't currently experiencing wealth, you first need to realize that abundance is everywhere...in fact it's all there is. Poverty and lack are the illusions. You can shift your consciousness to Wealth - BE Wealth - by simply making the decision, THEN your thoughts, speech, and action will allow you to experience the wealth that is yours!

This is indeed a complex subject which challenges our core belief systems. But it is those very belief systems that keep a person in a state of lack. Look at your financial situation today. Look at your core beliefs about Wealth and You, and see if your life isn't a PERFECT reflection of your beliefs. Then, look where those beliefs may have originated. When you can awaken to yourself that your beliefs create your reality, rather than the other way around, you have the option to truly be free to experience a reality of prosperity that you deserve!

Principles of Getting Rich Fast



The Secret is full of truths...many more truths than just the Law of Attraction, and they have been told for many years while being passed down in many different story forms. True happiness shall never fade in the eyes of the rightful owner. Many seek the truth yet only find a great deal of pain...why is that? You cannot cook a successful dish if you leave out majority of it's ingredients...that is why!

What we need is a desire that will never stop fulfilling us. It has to fulfill us endlessly, making us feel more and more pleasure. It shouldn't fade away once we achieve it, but on the contrary, upon achieving it, the pleasure should increase.

Sooner or later, one of our desires will lead us into pain or sorrow, emptiness, trouble, or illness. This is because all our desires are out of balance with our environment.

We feel a desire, we lack something, and now we need to use our environment in order to fulfill that lack. In other words, our desires always force us to change something in our environment in order to balance what we imagine will bring us fulfillment.

The following is not The Secret...but rather the truth to The Laws of Nature which act as a study guide for personal growth and the development of oneself.

Summary of the Seven Natural Laws of Love

* Love is its own law. Let love be your guiding principle. When in doubt, listen to your heart. Don’t allow mental concepts, beliefs, or assumptions that are not based on love to dictate your behavior.

* The law of source. You are the source of love. The love inside you is abundant and eternal. You don’t need to beg, control, or compromise in order to be loved.

* The law of attraction. The more you focus on love and gratitude, the more you will be surrounded by love. If you complain, blame, and dwell on fear, you’ll attract others who are also resentful, angry, and fearful.

* The law of unity. Love knows no borders and no boundaries. Love includes everyone and everything. Love takes no position, rising above separation. Find unity within by resolving the conflicts inside yourself and you won’t have to act them out with another.


* The law of truth. Let telling the truth about who you are and what you are feeling and thinking be your foundation. Vulnerable self-disclosure allows for empathy and understanding. The more truth is shared the more love grows.

* The law of consciousness. Love is a state of consciousness available only when you’re willing to relinquish your defenses. Protection is a barrier to love. Love cannot be given or taken but it can be shared. The vibration of love in you is often stimulated when you come into contact with one who carries it.

* The law of forgiveness. It’s ok to make mistakes. Very few humans are able to love perfectly. Forgive yourself and others generously and you’ll always have a second chance. Focus more on giving than getting and you’ll have much less forgiving to do.

The Law of the Twelve Causes



*This law, also called The Doctrine of the Twelve-Link Chain of Dependent Origination, teaches that all phenomena in this world constantly change, appearing and disappearing, and that all changes are based on an established rule. Though all things change, this rule is immutable. We know it as the “Law of the Twelve Causes” because we divide the rule into twelve stages. However, it is easier for us to understanding this law by limiting it to man than by trying to apply it at once to all phenomena.

*The Buddha perched the “Law of the Twelve Causes” in detail to Ananda in the Dirghagama Sutra. This law rules the growth of the human body as well as the changes in people's mind. The former is called the “outer causation” and the latter the “inner causation”. It explains the process through which a human being is born, grows, ages, and dies in light of the three temporal states of existence, the past, present, and future. And in connection with this, it shows how people's minds change and the fundamental method of purifying and of removing illusions from them.

*The twelve links or stages are (1) Ignorance, (2) Actions, (3) Consciousness, (4) Name and Form, (5) the Six Entrances (the five sense organs and the mind, (6) Contact, (7) Sensation, (8) Desire, (9) Clinging, l0) Existence, (11) Birth, and (12) Old Age and Death. First we will explain the growth and changes of the human body, the outer causation.

*The first link of the Twelve Causes is (1) Ignorance. Prior to our conception, nothing is known or sensed. When the ignorant spirit is conceived in the mother’s womb through the Action of sexual intercourse, Consciousness is produced. Consciousness means “something living”. Here something like a human being (a fetus) is produced, although it is still incomplete. As the incomplete consciousness is gradually taking shape, it grows into name and form (mental functions and matter). “Name” means an immaterial being, spirit or soul, and “Form” indicates a material being, that is, the human body. “Name and Form” mean the human body with a soul.

*As “Name and Form” (mind and body) grow, they develop the “Six Entrance” such as the five sense organs (eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body) and the mind by which we perceive the existence of things. At this time, we are still in the mother's womb and incomplete. This stage is called the “Six Entrances” because the functions of our minds and bodies are on the point of dividing into six different senses.

*We are born into this world at the stage of the Six Entrances. When we grow to the age of two or three, the Six Entrances are completed and sensibility is developed. That is, we become able to discern shapes, colors, sounds, smells, tastes, physical sensations, and so on. This stage is called “Contact.”

*When this sensibility is further developed, feelings of like and dislike naturally develop. This state is called “Sensation.” When such feelings appear, “Desire” for things arises spontaneously. The Desire referred to here means attachment, whose meaning is a little different for that of love as this word is commonly used. In other words, this is a state of mind that has preferences and that clings to what it likes. When we have Desire for something, we try to hold on to it. (Conversely, we try to avoid what we consider unpleasant or undesirable.) This is called “Clinging.”

*“Clinging” leads to various feelings, ideas, and assertions. This is called “Existence”, which means the discriminating mind. Due to this discriminating mind, opposition and struggle occur among people, and human life as suffering unfolds. Such human life is called “Birth”. Leading such a life of suffering. “Old Age” comes before one knows it, and finally one encounters “Death”.

*In short, the “Law of the Twelve Causes” teaches that you are born as an ordinary human being because of your ignorance in a previous life. The Law also teaches that if you eradicate you ignorance in the present world, the essential form of your life as it was meant to be will be revealed in his future life. Here we should not limit the meaning of “future life” to life when we are reborn after death but should regard it rather as the life before us in the future. If we abandon (fundamental) ignorance and set our minds in the direction of the Law, a bright and serene future life will open up before us.

The Law of Causation Summed Up



Shakyamuni Buddha did not regard this universe as Gods' creation or his conquest but as resulting from the relation of cause and effect by which all phenomena are produced.

“Causation” means a primary cause and a secondary cause combining to produce effect and a recompense.

In this world, there is nothing unchanged or fixed in form. All things have a direct cause (primary cause). When this comes into contact with an opportunity or condition (secondary cause), the result of this conjunction appears as a phenomenon (effect). This effect leaves behind traces (recompense): thus Shakyamuni Buddha interpreted all things in this world.

The combination of a primary cause and a secondary cause leads every action to an effect and a recompense. When a primary cause is annihilated or when, even if it exist, it does not come into contact with a secondary cause, it does not produce an effect and a recompense.

Shakyamuni Buddha expounded this rule through the doctrine of dependent origination, meaning that all phenomena are produced and annihilated by cause. This term indicates a thing arises from or is produced through the agency of a condition (a secondary cause). A thing does not take form unless there is an appropriate condition. This truth applies to all existence and phenomena in the universe. The Buddha intuitively perceived this so profoundly that even modern science cannot probe further.

When the conditions change, the substances produced change and take another form. When water comes into contact with a high temperature as a condition, it evaporates. When vapor comes into contact with cold air as a condition, it condenses and forms a cloud. Events and function of the mind are similar; there is nothing that does not follow this basic rule.

The Cosmos



Make sure that your appreciation for what someone else has accomplished for themselves doesn't turn into jealousy today. The grass in front of their house is not necessarily greener, so before you start coveting what they have, you need to remind yourself that what might be right for them might not be right for you. It can be hard to find contentedness in your own life, but right now you should at least try. Look around you today and count your blessings.

The Last & Greatest Science



Happiness is sought by everyone. But the search is not focused in the right direction. We waste precious time seeking happiness in the mirage of objects, places and people; in relationships and ideologies; in possessions and wanton indulgences. Depending on what state of being we are, we attract situations. We have to focus on heightening our state of being rather than changing situations in life. If our state of being is low, then the external situation, even though sacred, will be pulled down to our level of being. For example, a poor man in a palace will make the palace into a gutter.
In many religious traditions God is seen as infinite, all powerful, perfect and beyond change and growth. In stark contrast the universe is evolving an ever expanding consciousness often through excruciatingly painful struggles. Our mathematical and scientific understanding suggests God is an unfolding creative process that may expand without limit. In that framework we are the eyes of God with the power to create the world. We are the evolution of consciousness becoming aware of itself and beginning to acquire the power to take conscious control of evolution.
