“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment”  Marcus Aurelius
There is a mystical side of ‘The Seminar’. The fictional stories in the book describe various legends, some of which are actually true. Rather than my telling you any of these stories here, I will tell you another legend that is current and also very true.
We were born naked, wet, hungry, and some of us, crying. Then, things seemed to get worse. From this point in time forward we have all been brainwashed with negativity, abundantly and almost habitually . We have taught ourselves to expect pain, to live with it and in it, unless we perform a mere paradigm shift. The pain can become real and transform into dis-ease. Healing is another one of the Passageways to Riches that teaches how to heal others and ourselves as well. Here, I want to talk about the predecessors to dis-ease.
Currently, we are under the influence of the media preaching that the economy sucks! Many are sanctimoniously and prophetically brainwashing us into believing we are approaching certain economic doom. “Fiddlesticks,” I say. Instead of economic doom, we are headed for an economic boom. Wake up and smell the coffee! America is on sale right now and those that will have you believe in all the negativity are buying it up for pennies on the dollar. If you have been laid off or terminated for whatever reason, consider it a blessing and rise to the occasion. I realize that not everyone is geared to run a business or become a self made wealthy entrepreneur, but you can reach for higher ground. There is so much opportunity when you stop acting like the ostrich who buries his head when danger approaches. There is no danger except what your own mind is creating.
Money is not corrupt, but people can be. Money is a positive tool that can help others as well as ourselves. Focus on opportunities and not on obstacles. All opportunities have obstacles and if you embrace them you can overcome them. If you do what is hard, it becomes easy and when you do what is easy, it becomes easier. Take baby steps and one at a time. After you take a first step up a staircase, you can then ascend blindfolded. Program your own mind and don’t even listen to negativity. Be prepared for the best to come.
