What A Tragedy It Is

fractal-429039_640

What a tragedy it is

To live in this wondrous world
But only stay in one place

To play it too safe
But regret it later

To have infinite possibility
But only explore one

To have everything you need
But never realize it

To have so much potential for growth
But remain within the confines of comfort zones

What a tragedy it is
To not truly live
But merely exist

33 Harsh Truths to Recognize (If You Want to Wake Up)

space-158102_640

The first step toward change is awareness…

  1. We are far from free (Yes, even in ‘Merica). Slavery is now covert, subtle and insidious. And it will continue indefinitely until people realize their bondage.
  2. The ‘official’ 9/11 story is complete bullshit. It just doesn’t add up. And that treacherous fairytale has become a major source of fear-based programming used to re-shape society.
  3. Chemtrails… You can’t deny that they’re spraying something.
  4. We’re being systematically poisoned by the big institutions (Pharmaceuticals, flouride, GMO’s, fast food, soda, high fructose corn syrup, factory farmed animals pumped with antibiotics…etc)
  5. Governments have a long track record of manufacturing “terrorist attacks” on their own people and blaming a scapegoat. (USA, Israel and their intelligence agencies are masters at this.)
  6. Organized religions, as they exist now, are a distortion/inversion of spirituality and essential truths.
  7. Materialist science has become as dogmatic as the religions they criticize.
  8. Mainstream science is now driven by profit, not curiosity.
  9. Mainstream education = indoctrination.
  10. Most doctors and med schools are in the pockets of big pharma.
  11. Monsanto is raping the world.
  12. Politics are a stage show.
  13. Governments always come up with money for war, but there’s never enough when it comes to actually helping people.
  14. The history we’re taught in school is a big lie.
  15. Consumerism is driven through the conditioning of the masses to feel inadequate. (Especially with women.)
  16. The global economic system is fiat currency based on IOU’s (thus having no “real” backing) and being leveraged to funnel wealth into the hands of a few.
  17. So many aspects of society are designed to distract us from finding truth (work to keep us busy, entertainment, obsession with sports teams…etc)
  18. A small group of “people” control society here on Earth (or they’re trying to).
  19. This reality is some sort of hologram or simulation.
  20. There is so much going on that we aren’t perceiving (at least right now). We exist in a 3 dimensional reality and perceive that 3 dimensional reality with just 5 senses. Do you really think that’s all that exists!?
  21. Every major system in place is a big fear-generator (religion, education, media, government…etc.)
  22. There is an unseen force parasiting off of humanity and inhibiting our inherent potential.
  23. Television is a form of mass mind control. It’s called programming for a reason.
  24. Mainstream “news” is fear-based programming. (This also applies to most “alternative news” as well)
  25. The energy sources we’re using are creating a false sense of scarcity. There are many free energy alternatives out there, they’re just being suppressed (because they will relinquish any form of control.).
  26. Time is an illusion. And it’s designed to take us out of the present moment (the cause of so much anxiety and worry).
  27. Most big charities aren’t creating the positive changes they promise. (Billions of dollars have been raised for cancer research, and cancer is more prevalent than ever. Something doesn’t add up…)
  28. ‘The system’ does not want to cure disease, only treat it. Treatment is profitable, cures aren’t. There are cures to every disease. They’re just suppressed.
  29. Technology exists to control weather and trigger “natural disasters.”
  30. The issue of “global warming” is being exploited by ‘the powers that be’ to further control humanity.
  31. Your beliefs are the filter for the reality you perceive. All input gets processed through the brain. We all have cognitive biases that distort our perception of reality.
  32. The reality you experience is a reflection of yourself.
  33. We have way more power than we’re conditioned to believe. We’re not hopeless victims. The potential of humanity is being stifled. You can’t suppress something forever. That’s why our rise is inevitable.

Remember, nothing is absolute truth (in this reality at least). I strongly encourage everyone to do their own research and form their own conclusions.

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” -Buddha

Use your intuition and let love be your guide, not fear. Always ask yourself “Is this motivated by love or fear?”

Yours in ruthless love,

A Message to the Controllers

Sunhand

How long can you hold a giant beach ball underwater?
Before its unavoidable rise to the surface

How long will you play a game of never-ending whack-a-mole?
Before you realize another one will always pop up

How long can you block the flow of a river?
Before the water eventually collapses your dam

The sun is always shining
No matter how many clouds are in the sky

You can hide the truth
But it is always there
For those who have eyes to see
For those who remember…

Truth is infinite love
Everything else is illusionary

Fear is false evidence appearing real

Love is the dazzling stillness of infinite possibility
Of which we are all aspects
The delusion of separation is fleeting
As we break through our shells

Growth occurs through duress
Obstacles stand as tests
Our wings are developed
Birthed by challenge
Ready to inevitably fly the nest

Love prevails

The Phenomenon of Energy Snowballing

solar-flare-67532_640

Story time…

Last Friday night I was gallivanting along the streets of Portland (Maine) when I heard the voice of a young man behind me say “Excuse me sir, could you spare any change?” I stopped dead in my tracks. Not because of what he said, but how he said it. It wasn’t the usual, incoherent babble. It wasn’t in a disempowered, victim-stricken tone. It was polite and articulate with a refreshing sense of hope. So I turned around and we both introduced ourselves. His name was Adam and he’s about my age (26… in Earth years). He’s been on his own since adolescence when his single mother passed away. He has family dispersed across the world and (sadly) none willing to help him out. After a series of unfortunate circumstances he found himself with no place to live a couple weeks ago.

We immediately hit it off and started talking about anything and everything… Our lives, our experiences, the monetary system, philosophy, positivity, personal growth, changing lives…etc. As this positive energy built up between us, a tall dude (around our age too) walked up and excitedly greeted Adam (handshakes & man hugs). They’re old friends that haven’t seen each other in months (his friend was noticeably surprised to find out that Adam was on the streets). So the three of us started talking about empowerment, self-improvement and all that good stuff. At one point, Adam’s friend mentioned that a major turning point in his life was recently when he volunteered at Kripalu for 6 months. I was like “Yo… I was there like 5 days ago!” (see my post here). So funny. So synchronistic. And everyone that walked by our triangle of awesomeness was smiling. We all knew that we were co-creating something special. #datenergytho

I felt compelled to give Adam $20 and he accepted it with radiant gratitude, promising that he would pay it forward. I knew he would. Then we parted ways and I kept energy snowballing for the rest of the night (that’s another story haha).

Quick shout out to Adam: Keep your head up and stay positive, my friend. May all the dreams and desires of your heart come true.

The experience we all co-created last week was a breath of fresh air. That’s the kind of stuff that happens when you’re energy snowballing…

And we’ve all experienced it. We’ve all experienced the phenomenon of feeding off of other people’s energy. A team rallying behind the empowerment of a motivational halftime speech. One person instigating a spontaneous laugh fest amongst a group of friends. The reaction of everyone at a party when “Return of the Mack” comes on. The ever-increasing, tangible energy of a crowd matching the climax of a song during a live performance. The feeling of utter euphoria that arises within the depths of every soul whenever the word “Pokémon” is brought up. (Wait… Is that just me?)

Vibes are contagious. Energy is infectious.

Everything is energy, frequency and vibration…

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” -Nikola Tesla

And everything tends to match the dominant frequency at hand…

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” -Bashar

This manifests in the form of feelings/emotions, behavior, situations, experiences…etc. Energy snowballing happens with everything, from the micro scale to the macro scale.

It all starts with a little spark. That spark could be as simple as a friendly smile. And with that spark, you start attracting similar energy, drawing in compatible vibes. This builds and builds, as beings feed off of each other’s energy. It’s a damn good time.

And of course, it applies to the “negative” as well (think about riots). Energy snowballing is a powerful tool. So use that tool to build a better home (Earth), instead of hitting yourself in the face with it.

Be a beam of light everywhere you go. When you radiate your inner light, you drive out darkness and help others see.

“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” -Buddha

Step into your power and start an avalanche of positive energy everywhere you go.

“The truth is that existence wants your life to become a festival.” -Osho

Stay snowballin.

Yoga: Essential For Every Body?

yoga-381653_640

Heyheyhey, Namaste.

I spent this past weekend at Kripalu for a yoga retreat. Kripalu is nestled in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts and the energy of the place is so peaceful and positive. It was a great experience, so it only makes sense to write about yoga right now.

Yoga came into my life full force this Spring. I started taking yoga classes in April and immediately loved it. The feeling you get during and after yoga is simply amazing. You know that feeling after sitting in a car for 8 hours? (Tense, constricted, anxious..etc.) Well, yoga makes me feel the exact opposite of that.

What is yoga?

To me, yoga is the art of bringing every level of being into harmony through the means of the physical body. It’s leveraging the physical body to optimize the totality of self.

The practice of yoga is like a fun manual for inhabiting a human vessel. It’s a tool-kit for these flesh vehicles we’re piloting. Basically, if you have a body, it’s in your best interest to do some yoga. And I think yoga it’s so fundamental that it should be one of the first things taught to children. (But that’s another tangent.)

Don’t give into the stereotypes surrounding yoga. It’s for every ‘body’ (see what I did there?), not just middle-aged housewives. Plus it’s fun to break out of comfort zones and shatter realities. Just the concept of being a young, muscular guy at a yoga retreat shattered some realities in and of itself. Especially when I let my guard down during a little writing workshop and read my freewriting aloud. The subtle reactions of people were priceless.

Awareness

The practice of yoga tremendously strengthens the mind/body connection. It creates body awareness, making you far more in tune with your body. This allows you to know what your body is telling you and what it needs. On another level, yoga helps with awareness of thoughts. Because it’s a meditative practice, it cultivates a higher perspective, allowing one to witness thoughts without attaching to them. This perspective is crucial in mastering your reality.

Yoga also fosters breathing awareness. As you probably know, deep breathing is ridiculously beneficial in a lot of ways. Breath is the gateway to self mastery.

Carryover

You can draw from yoga to enhance so many aspects of life. Being aware of your body and its needs helps in maintaining optimal health. Being aware of your breath, and breathing deeply, can immediately reduce anxiety. Increased flexibility from yoga will make you more resistant to injury. (Think about how many people hurt their back just picking something up from the floor. I ain’t ’bout that life.)

Yoga positions are done instinctively by athletes as well. Think about the positions a pitcher goes through, or a basketball player preparing to jump for a rebound, or a sprinter crouched at the starting line. Yo, that’s yoga!

Another great benefit of yoga is that it begets structural integrity. It corrects imbalances and creates harmony in the body. So this means that yoga can provide a solid foundation for you to build upon. A foundation for increased strength, power, speed, muscle…etc.

What it doesn’t do:

It’s not going to get you jacked (though it will help). Yoga will definitely build strength. If you’re looking to get strong and muscular, you need to incorporate some resistance training. However, yoga will provide you with the structural integrity to take your strength training to the next level.

It’s not going to shed off of a ton of fat (though it will help). As the saying goes, abs are made in the kitchen. Why are there so many chubby yoga enthusiasts (and even instructors)? Because the vast majority of fat loss is based on diet. For fat loss, I highly recommend diets along the lines of Tim Ferriss’ Slow Carb Diet or the Carb Nite Solution. (Both have worked well for me.)

It won’t allow you to eat like a fat kid and stay lean and ripped. Yoga doesn’t give you the same hormonal effects as deadlifts, for example. A heavy, compound movement like a deadlift creates a hormonal cascade in which you can eat a whole pizza after and have it go to muscle cells instead of fat cells. (Look into Carb Backloading for the specific types of resistance training that produce the most conducive environment for indulging.) So back to the point above, your diet has to be on point if you want to be lean.

All in all, yoga is a practice that is fundamental in inhabiting a physical body. Any ‘body’ can benefit from it, and in my opinion, it’s crucial for any form of self-improvement.

I strongly encourage everyone to explore yoga. Take some classes, hit some poses, whatever floats your boat. Try it out. Get acquainted with your body.

Optimize your vessel and maximize your fun.

Namaste.

The Art of Random Mindblowing

woman-400574_640

A favorite activity of mine recently is randomly blowing people’s minds. Whether through conversation or action, it’s exciting to shake things up a little bit and get people to re-evaluate… well… everything.

Being a CRS (Certified Reality Shatterer) makes life so much more fun. Mindblowing, directed at both yourself and others, shakes up the bland monotony and adds some much needed spice back into life.

It is merging of your lighthearted, childlike essence with the wisdom of life experience; making the world your playground.

How to be a CRS (Certified Reality Shatterer)

Being a CRS means having fun with this experience of life. It’s being random, spontaneous and lovingly unpredictable. It’s shattering societal norms and blowing people’s minds (including your own).

It is being randomly funny, while not forcing people into anything or being preachy. It’s being unshakably yourself. No inhibitions and no fucks given. Living your inherent, brilliant uniqueness.

Comedically sneaking in wisdom is always fun…

Something like giving Pokémon cards to random people at a bar (yes, I’ve done that). Or saying “Planet Earth” when someone asks you where you’re from (my apologies to any extraterrestrial readers out there). Or even just being surprisingly kind. Believe it or not, it blows people’s minds when you go out of your way to be kind.

Another good one is calling the body a vessel, which I find hilarious, yet it implies that we’re infinite beings temporarily inhabiting human bodies. (getting deep on ‘em)

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” -Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

And, remember, it’s all about shattering realities from a place of love. The art of random mindblowing is completely deviating from social norms and conditioning without causing harm to yourself or others.

Why do this seemingly ridiculous stuff?

The art of random mindblowing is making people re-evaluate everything and think differently, helping to create a world of brilliantly unique individuals. It’s dropping bits of wisdom in an entertaining manner.

It’s about being yourself. It’s about being free. It’s expressing your magnificent uniqueness.

We all sacrifice our freedom based on fear of what others think or pressure to conform to “norms.” And that’s no fun. Life is infinitely more fun and fulfilling when you do your own thing.

Imagine achieving the same level of minblowingness of Inception or The Matrix with your own ideas and actions. And making it funny, like a thought-provoking stand-up comedy set. Now that’s living.

“The decision is, do you want to live or want to exist?” -Andre 3000

The art of random mindblowing in action:

“Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here’s Tom with the Weather.” -Bill Hicks

+A couple weeks ago at a crowded bar, I struck up a conversation with a really drunk girl comparing getting to the bar to a game of chess. We both agreed that we wouldn’t want to be a pawn haha. (Sneaking in deep insights.)

+One time, my friend Marcus spontaneously started konging on the street, next to a woman sitting outside at a restaurant. She didn’t know how to react. In case you don’t know what konging is…

+My Dad always purposely says the wrong name of anyone with a nametag (waitresses…etc.) It always creates an entertaining exchange.

+Mindblowing also works with evidence that effectively overturns commonly accepted truisms. Like how distance running is far from ideal for fat loss. I’ve shared this article (well worth the read) with a lot of people, and half-sarcastically say “I don’t wanna get fat” whenever the topic of long-distance running comes up.

+Inspired by writing the post, I did some CRS’ing today… In the parking lot of a Chipotle I walked up to a guy, while kind of staring at the sky, and asked “Excuse me, what planet is this?” in a tone of genuine curiosity. He looked at me and with a confused look said “Earth?” (almost second-guessing himself). Then I said “Ok, thank you.” turned around and walked away. I’m pretty sure he’ll be marinating on that moment for the rest of his life.

I’ve been doing a lot of random mindblowing lately; and been around some people who embody being a CRS as well. I hear a lot of things like “Oh, I never thought of it that way…” or “You’re funny/interesting.” Which is cool. Plus it’s just so damn fun.

Mindblowing intros:

“You look like some friendly beings.” -Me to a group of two women

“Hey, I recognize that vessel…” -My friend Marcus to some guy he met once before

“Hey, nice vessel.”

“What’s your thoughts on the human condition, in one sentence?”

“It’s a beautiful hologram we live in, right?”

Mindblowing goodbyes:

“Have the best night of your life.” -My friend Chris (to at least 100 different people on the streets of NYC one weekend)

“May all the dreams and desires of your heart come true this year.” -Jay Electronica ending an interview. (I’ve started saying this one too; such a great way to say goodbye haha.)

And to piggyback on that Jay Electronica quote, I changed my email signature at work to say “May all the dreams and desires of your heart come true.” Now how’s that for shattering realities?

I also enjoy leaving people I’ll never see again with the classic David Icke quote… “Remember, infinite love is the only truth, everything else is illusion.”

I incorporate all this in my textual adventures too, especially with women I’m pursuing who are unresponsive. That’s the opportune time to let go, leave them with something thought-provoking, blow their mind and spark that inner light within. Exhibit A:

Text

Now get out there and blow some minds. Have fun, be spontaneous, be yourself and enjoy life.

May all the dreams and desires of your heart come true.

-Stephen Parato, CRS

6 Reasons Why You Should Travel Alone

10385473_10100275589343989_6988597891302391926_n

Last weekend I took a solo weekend trip to Acadia National Park in Maine… And it was an amazing experience. (Acadia is a definite must-see for everyone in my opinion. If you haven’t been there, I highly recommend it.)

The entire island (Mt. Desert Island) is sprawling with pristine wilderness. Acadia has miles and miles of well-kept hiking trails. There are mountains with ridgelines that look like the spines of gigantic creatures, merging into the scenic, rocky Maine coast. Then there’s quaint town of Bar Harbor, with a nice selection of quality restaurants and shops. Endless awesomeness everywhere you go.

I had a great weekend in Acadia. Every time I travel alone, I’m ridiculously spontaneous. I consciously let go of any fears, do everything on a whim and get into all kinds of random adventures. Plus I always meet more people than when I’m with people I already know. (Don’t get me wrong, traveling with others is awesome too. It’s great to bond through experience. But the benefits of solo travel aren’t valued and enjoyed enough, in my opinion.)

Be open and spontaneous; not closed off and rigid. You need to be open to new experiences, because that’s when the magic happens. Cultivate your inner lone wolf and enjoy the experience of life.

“We came here to be free.” -Ralph Smart

 

6 Reasons to Travel Alone

1. You meet more people.

When you’re traveling alone, you just end up talking to more random people. And that’s part of why it can be so fun. Make friends at the top of a mountain. Go out to dinner by yourself and talk to whoever is around. Venture into a bar by yourself and strike up a conversation with a stranger. Talk to some friendly people on the street. New experiences… That’s what life is all about.

2. You’re completely free.

Solo travel entails being dynamic and spontaneous. You can do anything on a whim. There is no one else to please, no one to ask for approval and no limits. The only constraints you have are those created by your own mind. Traveling alone allows you to follow your heart on whatever spontaneous adventures it may bring you on.

3. You become more present.

When you’re solo, you don’t worry about anyone else. You’re able to more easily get “in the zone” when you’re by yourself. Especially when alone in nature, you slip into a deep presence; a connectedness with all that is.

4. You’re forced into personal growth.

You can’t depend on anyone but yourself when traveling alone. You have to constantly step out of your comfort zone. There’s no one to hold your hand or do anything for you. Traveling solo fosters so much self-improvement, and puts you back in the driver’s seat of your own life.

5. You become comfortable in your own skin.

You have to learn to be comfortable with yourself to travel alone. And the more you do it, the more comfortable with yourself you get. Traveling alone cultivates self-love and self-acceptance, which is so crucial in maximizing the human experience.

6. You get to know yourself better.

It’s just you… When you travel alone, you give yourself space to reflect as you accumulate experience. Solo travel adventures give you the opportunity to ‘look within’ even as you’re exploring the outside world.

“Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment.” -Lao Tzu

 

Explore, stay spontaneous and keep metabolizing awesome experiences.

Much love.

-Stevie P!

Your Beliefs About Money Are Holding You Back

wealth-69524_640

Money…

Cash, cheese, cheddar, moolah, bread, bills, bones, cabbage, c-notes, dough, dead presidents, ducats, loot, stacks, skrilla…

Whatever you want to call it, it enormously influences every aspect of our lives. Money is the primary driving force behind so many of our decisions in life. Like Wu-Tang said, “Cash Rules Everything Around Me.” But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can rule over money, as opposed to letting money rule over you.

Then there’s the paradoxical scenario of how we’re so familiar with money, yet spend very little time or effort questioning what it really is. This puts us at risk of being a slave to money, and manipulated by it, when we should be using it as a tool.

Money is a promise based upon perception. What is that piece of paper really worth? Next to nothing, of course. It’s just a piece of paper. Money is no longer backed by anything. The bills in your pocket are merely tokens representing a collectively agreed upon, perceived value.

Money is essentially a form of energy (like everything). Think about the word ‘currency’… Like a current, it should flow. It is energy that gets passed from person to person, entity to entity; representative of exchange of value. It behaves like any other system of energy as well, so we must treat it as energy. Let it flow through you, without blocking it off or clinging onto it. Abundance comes when you’re open to the energy.

“Money is a symbol of that life force, of its appreciation. Money can be a solidified form of love. Through the transfer of money, we facilitate love and communication with other humans. It offers us a simple system of providing for and loving and nurturing ourselves, and it is one way of expressing generosity and kindness for the less fortunate.” -Stuart Wilde

That’s in an ideal world, but let’s be honest here; the current monetary system we’ve been relegated to is obviously a heavily manipulated illusion to suit the interests of a select few. It’s become painfully obvious that it’s a rigged game. There’s enough food and shelter on earth, yet people are homeless and hungry due to economic conditions. We work longer hours, yet have the capacity to buy less and less. Money is always cut for anything that actually helps people, yet there’s always an endless supply of money available for war.

For a comprehensive background of the monetary system, I highly recommend the following documentary, entitled ‘The Money Masters’…

But until a new system develops, let’s learn how to view and use money in a way that will benefit your state of well-being as well as those around you.

3 Ways to Change Your Money Mindset and Live in Abundance

1. Stop thinking money is “real.”

Money is just a token representing the perception of value. It’s merely a symbol. It’s a form of energy.

It’s a means of exchange to obtain things with inherent (“real”) value, but it has no real value itself.

In the US, money is essentially an exchange of IOU’s (yay, imaginary debt) between the Federal Reserve and the US Treasury, with the banks as the middle man. It is debt to begin with. And that debt gets exponentially multiplied through fractional reserve banking.

It’s very important to know where money comes from. If you want to know exactly how money is created, this video sums it up very nicely:

And here’s an excerpt from “The Perception Deception” by David Icke. Nothing you don’t already know, but it really puts things in perspective…

20140721-214527.jpg

Stop thinking money is “real.” This shift creates awareness and opens you up to the next two points…

2. View money as a means to an end, not the end goal.

Why do you want money? What are you going to do with that money?

If you want money just for the sake of having money, or for keeping score, then what’s the point? With that mentality, you’ll never be happy.

When you view money as a means to an end, and not the end goal, you change the whole dynamic. If you have money as your end goal, you put it on a pedestal and it becomes your master.

If you view money as a means to an end, it works for you (instead of the other way around), and you’ll lead a more fulfilling life. This would be, for example, having the goal of taking a 2 week trip around Italy. Money becomes a means to finance this trip. Because of that, you’re far more likely to obtain it, and the trip would add to your life experience (experiences > stuff).

“People don’t want to be millionaires — they want to experience what they believe only millions can buy.” -Tim Ferriss

View money as a means to an end, and let it work for you.

3. Don’t worry about money and have an abundance mentality (let it flow).

“Worry, like a rocking chair will give you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.” – Vance Havner

The goal with money should be to not worry about money. When you worry about money, you create a “limitation aura” for yourself, and block the universal flow of abundance. Since money is essentially energy, you get what you put out. Too many people are stuck in the poverty mind set. Think limitation, and that’s your reality. This is a major factor in how wealthy or poor families tend to continue their economic status from generation to generation. It’s the mind set, abundance or limitation, that determines our financial status (as well as our ‘reality’ as a whole).

Have an abundance mentality… And, whoomp! There’s your reality.

Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”

 

An attitude of gratitude creates abundance.

That’s the secret. Be grateful for what you have, trust that your needs will always be met, and you will find yourself bathing in the river of perpetual abundance. It’s almost magical how it works.

Money is also a major source of emotional turmoil for so many people. This creates an underlying environment of fear in your subconscious that drives your behavior and robs you of your inherent freedom and happiness.

Stop taking money, and life, so seriously. It almost seems counterintuitive, but once you “let go” (without being naïve/stupid of course), everything seems to just fall into place. Opportunities will present themselves and doors will open. You just need to walk through.

Don’t worry about money. Worrying is utterly useless. Get your priorities straight, take care of what you need to and let go. If you need/want more, simply take action towards your goals (instead of worrying). When there’s a will there’s a way. There are no limits to human creativity, and this is becoming excitingly evident in the information age.

Be generous when your heart guides you to do so. Let currency flow, for there is always more heading your way.

Here’s some of the best advice I’ve ever come across regarding money…

Remember, the goal is to not worry about money. It’s just energy. And a means to an end. It’s a means to acquire things of “real” value (food, homes, land, Pokemon cards…etc).

To sum it all up, have an abundance mentality (without being naïve or stupid), take action based on your own intuition and live without worrying about money. That’s how to live the beautifully bountiful life you were meant to live.

Attract wealth in all forms.

Much love.
