Don’t worry, this post is NOT about politics! Not at its heart, anyway. And yes, the way things are going, he may well be the cause of a nuclear war with North Korea which will hurt pretty much everyone on the planet! However, when it comes to our every day lives, there is very little that Trump and his incompetent administration can actually do to you – if you understand that you already have the power to get what you want.
You can say that these are strange times in which we are living but in my opinion, there has never been anything but strange times! The whole world has been messed up for a very long time, certainly since humans have had the ability to record history, going back 5,000 years and who knows beyond that. It would be nice to think there was a time when the human race lived in complete utopia (and some believe there was) but to think that this was any time in living memory or in recorded history, is a total fallacy.
It’s incredible to think that in all recorded human history, there have been, from one account I read, less than 300 of those years where there was no war anywhere on the planet.
I thought I would share this beautiful song with you as the lyrics could not be more relevant to everything this blog is about. The weird thing is, it’s by Massive Attack, who are my favourite music producers and I’ve had this track for years but never took much notice of the lyrics till last year.
I suddenly realised what was being said and fully understood it for the first time – which shows how much more aware you become once you go deeper into this journey of self development. Similar to reading “Think and Grow Rich”, which the first time around, I was not aware enough to fully understand.
I ended up playing it every morning for 6 months and it really helped me during a tough period. It reminded me what I needed to do to stay on the right path towards creating the life I desired. I hope it might do the same for you.
I’ve pasted the lyrics below and analysed them, so you fully understand. Do as they say and there’s no doubt in my mind, you have a blueprint for success.
I first came across the guy known online as Gary Vee, early in 2017. As a fan of straight taking, no-nonsense, I was instantly drawn in because I’m here to inform you, NO-ONE does crap-cutting, piercing to the heart of the matter, like this man!
It would be foolish of you to be put off by the big, brash, profanity-laden, motor-mouth persona. Yes, he is all that and more! But away from the stages where he gives speeches to conferences (as in the above video) and countless media interviews, he’s an extraordinarily generous, kind, positive, perceptive man, who relates well to others and is well liked as well as respected.
One of the major things I’ve changed in my daily routine this year, is the elimination of my old obsession with watching the news or immersing myself in news stories online. I considered it a vital part of my day, something I needed to do to stay informed – though I’ll be honest and admit it had become an addiction that would take up hours.
I never realised just how much of a negative influence it was having on me. But it doesn’t take much to see just why it can affect so many of us in our overall mindset to life. Here are the headlines I saw immediately as I opened Bing today (and these are just local to UK):
I was initially reluctant to get this book due to the word “god”. The fact I have not written god with a capital G tells you all you need to know about my feelings towards it! I have never believed in god since I became an adult, have been an atheist most of the proceeding time and now………..well, let’s just say books like Conversations With God are making me re-think that! But it doesn’t matter if you are agnostic, atheist or religious, this book is a must-read. But be warned; no matter what your belief, you are about to have it severely challenged!
The 3rd in my series where I tell all you lovely folks about the ups and downs of living a life devoted to self development and the law of attraction. This week, I’m attempting to bounce back after my horrendous monetary losses…………and discuss why maybe, just maybe, it happened for a reason!
I can now say with 100% certainty that I believe in the Law of Attraction. Too much crazy shit has happened in recent times for me to think anything otherwise!! But I’ve found that it can be difficult to have faith in it, particularly when thing aren’t going so well. When that happens, I like to remind myself of things that make me realise ANYTHING is possible because we live in a world full of mysteries, miracles and mind boggling wonders that the human mind can barely comprehend!
Here’s a list of 10 things on this planet (and beyond!) that even after millennia of human existence, we STILL haven’t got the foggiest idea what it fully means or what is there. If that’s the case, then why the hell can’t the law of attraction be real?
When I first began this journey down the rabbit hole of enlightenment, the vast majority of people I was learning from were American (or Canadian). Most of them were middle aged or older. Whilst I didn’t have an issue with this (and age means nothing to me, even more so 18 months into this journey) during those first 6 months or so, I was in a constant battle to keep faith in what I was learning.
When you are a young, mixed-race male from a working-class family in England, with no prior experience or belief in anything spiritual, it’s kind of difficult to instantly buy into things like the law of attraction or anything that can’t be experienced with the 5 senses. So it helps at least in the beginning, to have one or two people who you can relate more easily to. Ralph Smart helped enormously with that, but it was another guy who REALLY resonated with me more than anyone else; ex-con, football hooligan and drug addict, turned yoga and transformational coach, Brett Moran!
The second of my regular video updates on how things are going as I aim to create my dream life using the law of attraction and other methods of self development. This week, I’ve come right back to Earth with a big fecking BANG!!
I’ve spoken with many people who have suffered with anxiety and depression and have come to the conclusion that actually, many of them don’t want to overcome it. I know this is a controversial thing to say but I also know that this phenomenon of not wanting to rid yourself of the pain or negativity in your life, despite the fact it’s the cause of most of your problems, is a recognised one in psychology. Eckhart Tolle speaks of this in The Power of Now:
“….you may encounter intense inner resistance to dis-identifying from your pain. This will be the case particularly if you have lived closely identified with your emotional pain….for most of your life and the whole or a large part of your sense of self is invested in it. What this means is that you have made an unhappy self out of your pain…. and believe that this mind-made fiction is who you are. In that case, unconscious fear of losing your identity will create strong resistance to any dis-identification.
In other words, you would rather be in pain……..than take a leap into the unknown and risk losing the familiar unhappy self. If this applies to you, observe the resistance within yourself. Observe the attachment to your pain. Be very alert. Observe the peculiar pleasure you derive from being unhappy. Observe the compulsion to talk or think about it. The resistance will cease if you make it conscious.”
