The Antidote To The Fuzzy Future Syndrome

Monday, May 10th, 2010

Are you ready to get exactly what you want?  Like so many I’ve asked before you, I hear you emphatically responding, “Yes!” Great!  It’s yours!  But…what is it, exactly?  And if you actually got it, what price would you have to pay?

You don’t have to pay any price.  Your dreams are ready and waiting for you to bring them to life.  But shifting gears to focus on the creation of our dreams sometimes feels like a lot of work, and much of it not destined to produce results.  It often seems that if we would only work harder on the current realities before us, we would get what we want through sheer focus of will.

Success Secrets – The Trap of Instant Gratification

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

It is true; you can manifest anything that you want. But history has shown us, when people win the 20 million dollar powerball, they often find themselves in the same position they were before they amassed the wealth. Getting anything you want instantly; be it a new job, a new car, a new client, comes with the same risks of winning the lottery tomorrow.

So what if your aspirations were a rigged slot machine that always supplied you with your desires instantly? What if you got everything you wanted tomorrow? What is the trap?

Turn Your Personal Shadow Into Fuel For The Future

Saturday, July 4th, 2009

Take a walk in a big city. It could be Chicago, Boston, LA. Smell the faint stench of sewer on a hot day, observe shadows of glistening buildings hulking over you.

People pass on all sides in waves of color, bearing with them their own shadows, just as you, when sunlight touches them and stretches around. They might be lawyers, prostitutes, clergy; no ethnicity is excluded. All are equal; they have shadows. It’s a law of nature, of the physical world; every material thing casts a shadow of its own.

Take a walk in the countryside. It could be in the farmland of Kansas, Iowa, Michigan, perhaps a forest of trees. Smell the fragrance of spring blossoms, manure fertilizing crops, observe shadows of trees rustling in the breeze.

When You Desire Nothing You Can Choose Anything

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

It may come as a surprise to you that you are attached to everything you desire. Behind every desire there is a dissatisfaction and resistance to what is and as the saying goes, “whatever you resist persists”. Your very desire forces you to focus on the absence in your life of that which you want and so paradoxically keeps it away from you. By desiring nothing, you are attached to nothing, and so allow yourself to create the reality of your choice knowing that you are free to choose any experience. Desire is the source of all attachment whereas choice is the gift of detachment.
