How Happiness ONLY cost me $2.4 Million and 4 years of living. Also why bacon is awesome!

Source writes through me and guided me to this point. Ask any questions in the comments and i’ll freely answer

It was December 2009. What was meant to be an incredible Christmas abroad and ushering the New Year with Champagne turned into Christmas on the streets being chased every corner I turned and a New Years Eve which I didn’t know what day it was. Combine that with 4 years of trial and error in putting all my personal development and spiritual knowing into use, you get me now.

Happy

Now, I took the long way around to get there, and see now, that I didn’t have to loose an entire empire and 4 years of good living to get to a place of complete happiness and free from fear.
To wake up everyday with no worries or fears is the most valuable feeling I cherish.
I have unplugged from the game of life, and choose not to play it. I’m living in the only perfect moment. Now.

How I lost everything and what I had isn’t important yet. I know people are dying to know what, how, where, who! I’m not a celebrity and don’t subscribe to that. I put the title up to get your attention, and it worked! It is true though.

Right now, please just smile and live in the now. Stop playing the game of life, You are not just a player, you are a creator. Step away from the board and see that all around is wonder. The map is not the territory. See yourself as plugged into The Matrix. Just unplug and start to live.
Out of the trillions of miles of space in the universe, you are here! In the words of Louis C.K ” We get to eat Bacon!”

No one has your interest at heart. Only you. If you don’t have a plan to start living, someone will take that from you and make you live for them.

Now go, be free and if you feel inclined, eat some bacon!

Allow and Forget How…Now!

I am so blessed to have had many wonderful things enter my life so far. People, Places, Finances, Experiences. I don’t feel like I’m 27, but far beyond my years. I have won everything and in the blink of an eye, lost it all. That’s  when the real learning started! A life lesson that only cost 2.4 Million Dollars!!! More about that some other time…
I’m not some pumped up self help guru either, I’m just a happy man living in a happy world without worry or fear.

So many people want to know how the Law of Attraction works. Sadly though, knowing how something works doesn’t necessarily mean it will work for you! Peoples failure to comprehend this is evident in the up rise of new ”self help” culture and the thousands of Law of Attraction books. Each one claiming to be the answer to your dreams! Rhonda Byrne released The Secret, then The Power, then The Magic…. what’s next? The Truth?!

From my experience, the 3 books that I can honestly say that have what is ” a comprehensive guide to living a successful life” are

These 3 books to me cover the spectrum of Physical, Spiritual and Quantum.

Each one has this emphasis. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT THE HOW.

You cannot plan how life goes, so stop trying to force HOW you think it will bring what you want into being. Every time I received wondrous joy, I didn’t plan it. I don’t know how the millions of dollars will get into my life, but it will, and has done countless times! Normally through channels I never expected! You cannot control the Law of Attraction. You can as much as The Law of Gravity. So just accept and allow and forget how!

Advice I give people is this. ” Leave the back door open ”.
I don’t mean in your house, but in your life. Life has a funny way of sneaking these wonders in while you’re looking the other way.

If you find yourself asking ” Where is it?. How can I make this happen ” and you feel it’s against the grain in your heart, just say the following phrase to yourself ” OH LOOK OVER THERE, A BADGER WITH A GUN! ” Works every time, in a kind of wtf moment, and life goes on. It gets you out of your own way!

Short post on Gratitude

Nothing in the world feels as good as gratitude. I have not found anything that allows one to becoming in harmony easier than gratitude.

To expand on my law of attraction post from yesterday, Once you have your belief in place, it is gratitude, that allows you to get out of the way of yourself and get what you desire.
Now, many people write out what they are grateful for or even say it, but do you actually believe it? You can say ” I love you ” to a person but not mean it.

You have to Feel gratitude from within.

Humans are primitive, and our language is limiting, so we must transcend vocabulary and language in order to achieve this.

I have lived an incredible life so far and achieved some unbelievable things. I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon! I owe it all to gratitude.What I personally do is hold a picture in my mind, then drop to my heart and feel the responses to it. The feeling is a mix of peace and excitement. The child at Christmas knows what it’s getting but the surprise is still exciting!
This way, I find I am aware of so much more and grateful for things I wasn’t even unaware of. Thank you subconscious! Emotion is driving here, and Love being the most powerful.

My next post will be on the Destructive Power of How.

As I say in all my posts, if you like what you hear, fantastic! If you don’t fantastic! It means you have made a decision in your own heart and are the captain of your own ship.

 

The Missing Key in The Law of Attraction

A few years ago, I lost everything in my life. Powers out of my control turned my life upside down and I lost it all. Family, friends, finances, health, home, food and most importantly, my dogs. I ended up on the street for a brief period, but the one thing I didn’t loose was my mind.
I have had the privilege of loosing everything and standing on the other side of life, looking back at what once was. Very few people get to that point and return to tell the tale. This is a tale I will one day fully share to inspire those around.

For many years, I’ve been an advocate of The Law of Attraction. By accepting full responsibility for my life, I understand I create the circumstances, opportunities and events.
For those unfamiliar with the Law of Attraction, it states, Like attracts Like. Simple! Now if a thought is a measurable frequency, it can attract other like minded thoughts. If these thoughts are physical, then surely they are responsible for attracting life into life. I accept everything that happened to me, which gives me the power. Rather than telling an artist what to paint, I am the artist.

That is the very basic concept. I have seen the movie The Secret and feels like it explains the concept in a very simple way, as if to a 5 year old. From this movie, millions have tried the law of attraction and to no avail, don’t see results they expect. Then this leads them to saying ” That Law of Attraction is a load of BS!”

While meditating recently, I asked the question ”why?” in relation to so many peoples failure of understanding the law. Something spoke through me and from there, I found what I would identify as the missing key. It isn’t airy fairy, it isn’t grounded in the clouds, but just plain common sense.
The teachings say to ask for what you want, believe you have it, then allow it to come from Source.

  • Ask
  • Believe
  • Receive

I feel it has been diluted over the years and people write books, to drag out this, but it’s simple enough. I don’t think the big publishing companies would sell many 1 page books though, hence the rise in 300 page L.O.A. books! Leave the people wanting more and suggest they way be a shortcut somewhere!
Anthony Robbins hasn’t released a book in nearly 20 years! Why? Because he said what needed to say, and people aren’t acting on what he said.

That was a bit off topic, so back on! The missing key is this.

Understand what you surrender to. Even simpler, What do you believe in?

There is no wrong answer here. On a scientific level, if we are transmitters that send and receive, we need to understand in our hearts, what we are transmitting to. God, The Universe, Source, Flying Spaghetti Monster, Science, Budda etc….

Whatever it is that you believe, you must wholeheartedly do so. This connection to your chosen will be the highway in which you can create the life you intend, rather than a random pattern that you can’t comprehend.

By not believing in what you transmit too, you are simply sending an incredible message out there with no address. It might arrive at destination, but probably not!

The question I get a lot is ” I don’t believe in God, I believe in nothing, what do you say to that!?”
To that I say this. If you are trying to better yourself and cannot look outside yourself, then look within and believe in yourself. This will create the strong connection you desire as well. If it is science you wish to place your connection, then ask simple questions like ” how did we get here from absolute nothingness?”. The awe you experience will show you the way.

My own belief is not important, as it’s nothing to do with you. As the same, your belief is nothing to do with me. Just know that whatever it is, you are right.

To summarize

  • Know exactly what you want
  • Release it/ Surrender it to whatever you believe in
  • Allow it to come into being. Do not force it.

The Power of Why

Now, whatever I think is irrelevant. If you think I’m right. You are correct! If you think i’m wrong, you are correct! Make it what you will. It is your life and your own light that will guide you on the wonderful paths that lay ahead.

The first thing I want to share with the world is a wonderful little act, that when done, immediately turns your world on its head, removes any rose tinted glasses and will lead you to betterment. That little act is asking the question Why to yourself.

It doesn’t sound like much, but to approach a situation and internally ask from a non judgmental stand point ”why?”, you uncover some of the wonders that this life hides in the open. I’ve racked my brains on how to make it simpler, but I can’t. That is it.

Your future will completely change when you adopt this into your daily life. Judgement will no longer occur and the connection you will feel to yourself and whatever you look towards ( God, The Universe, Flying Spaghetti Monster in the Sky… ), will increase quantum fold!

I have found this to be the fastest way to leave a stressful mind. Also, a valuable skill I learned was not to react, but respond. A reaction will lash out and could cause un-calculated consequences, while a response is delivered with intent and openness.

Here is an interesting story to show you it in use.

About 2 years ago, I was dining with a friend and her mother. Recently, it had been discovered that the father had been having an affair and was caught. The dinner conversation was littered with snide comments at the man and his ”after work activities ”. Not one positive comment was uttered, just ”why me?” and ” what an evil person ”. As I listened, I merely observed. Who was I to judge anyone.
After about an hour of this, the attention turned to me and I was asked my view point. Being the only male at the table, I felt like i was being led to slaughter! I decided to just look at the mother and ask out straight ” why would he cheat? ”.  The usual, ” he’s an asshole and he’s this and that…” but I asked again. I asked myself.

From what I saw, the mother was an incredibly independent woman. She built a business herself from nothing, she bought the family home herself, she had her own bank accounts, she at times vacationed solo and she raised the daughter most of the time.
Could it be possible that the father loved her so much but was also very intimidated by her? Unable to break into a deeper, connected relationship?
Yes, they were married, but were they close? Did they share that life-force together? I don’t know the answer as I’m not either of them, but I knew that by offering my view point, it could move things in a completely different direction. It was time to set the cat amongst the pigeons.
I relayed what I thought to the mother. Like a bomb, the place exploded! I was public enemy joint number one! How dare I question such things! From every view point, she was the victim here and he was the devil. The mother stormed out of the restaurant leaving me with the daughter. Luckily the daughter knew me and knew that my brain functioned a little different from the rest of the world. Was there method to my madness?

A few days later, my phone rang. It was the mother. She calmly apologized about her reaction and told me something wonderful.
As she drove home, she said she kept asking the question ”why?” in her head and after awhile of this got tired of the responses , so approached it from a non judgmental view.
She said really instantly she saw things differently. She pulled the car over and sat in the car for hours, delving deeper into why. All of a sudden, she realized, she was so independent, she could never allow her husband to be one with her as he intended. He did in fact love her.
This, over the years and the lack of communication led to the disastrous act.

Now don’t think for a second I am saying the father was correct in what he did. What I am saying is, it is more understandable why. From his new footing, you open so many possibilities to go forward. In this particular situation, the family did split. The mother loving her independence and the father has moved onto a new connected relationship.

I took a similar view point to the Tiger Woods scandal some years ago. It had been revealed that Tiger had multiple encounters with women outside his marriage, and the world went insane at this revelation. This icon, father, charitable man was now viewed as the scum of the Earth. I didn’t allow myself to be dragged into the mass media of it. Instead I asked the question ”Why?”. The answer I received from within was astounding.
From my years of reading success literature and psychology books, It was evident that the most driven, rich and successful people in the world had an incredible sex drive. With Tiger Woods, he was world number one. Unbeatable. I could assume he had a high sex drive, from the number of women claiming to have been with him. Now, his wife Elin is very beautiful. A Swedish blonde model. The two married, started a life together and had a child. Here is where my brain decided to go in this instance.

I theorized, that the wife, who probably had been hit on and propositioned for years due to her stunning looks. Upon marrying, she was happy to be free of all the sexual pressures, but not understanding her husbands sex drive, shut him out as ‘another dog’.
This pressure had to be released somewhere and sadly, we all know what happened next. Again, I’m not saying what Tiger did was right. I am saying though, through a new way of looking at it, and asking ”why?”, we have a brand new view point to act from. I think open communication and the understanding of power could have prevented such a thing. What happened was wrong, but not bad. I seriously doubt there was any malicious intent.

So next time you are in any situation, just ask ”why?”. Steer away from the pitfall of ”Why me!?!”
If you think someone was betrayed you, they could just be too proud to ask for help. If you think something has happened for the worst, it would be for the best. Find a new footing and from there, respond, don’t react.
