Esoteric Secrecy

10 08 2006

Most mystical, or esoteric societies generally have something in common the world over. Their meditational practices, and the resulting inner experiences are regarded in the main as being confidential. Such esoteric “secrecy” has been around for centuries, and centuries. At initiation intellectual knowledge of the meditational practices are given. It may take place in a ritual setting where it is transmitted by speech. On the other hand, instructions may be sent via the post, or even by email! Anyway, there are a number of important reasons for esoteric secrecy which we shall discuss here:-
I. Direct Mystical Experience is not the same as Intellectual Knowledge.

Enlightened Thinking For Creating Wealth

9 08 2006

wealthWe become what we think. If you think poverty, it is inevitable that you will be poor. Whereas if you think prosperity, your life will generate wealth, you will blossom like a rose bud in the sunshine, like a caterpillar metamorphosed into a beautiful butterfly. Creative ideas will start flowing, you’ll wake up each day looking forward to it, expecting new ideas to unveil themselves to you that day, to generate wealth, to make a difference in the world.

Your destiny depends upon you, by what you dwell on and the choices that you make. We all have the choice to either think, or dwell on the negative things of life, the impossibilities or the positive things, the possibilities. In the Bible it states that, “Anything is possible, if you have faith.” In other words, what do you believe in, what are the truths that you base your life on. If you truly believe that nothing is impossible to you, for you, then unlimited wealth is at your doorstep. Read the rest of this entry »

8 08 2006

While many people don’t like to talk about it unemployment is something very real that has the potential to be very damaging for the ill prepared. Due to poor planning and denial, many people once unemployed find themselves in a severe financial struggle. Credit card companies are calling them at home, at their old offices, and in some cases contacting them via mail and e-mail.

So how can you keep yourself from being in a similar situation?

Read, Learn, and Think Your Way to Success… Like Bill Gates.

If Bill Gates Thinks It Matters …

Bill Gates doesn’t have to know everything. He recognizes that he has employees who do. But, he appreciates the importance of taking the time to learn what they know. He takes time to listen to their ideas. He takes time to think, to ponder the direction of Microsoft. The Wall Street Journal highlighted Gates’ bi-annual Think Weeks in a recent article In Secret Hideaway, Bill Gates Ponders Microsoft’s Future by Robert A. Guth. The concept took hold of my imagination.

Essentially, for many years, Gates has gone into Read the rest of this entry »

Tithing: The Active Ingredient in Living a Prosperous Life

7 08 2006

True prosperity has a spiritual basis. “God is the Source of your supply.” So states Catherine Ponder in her wonderful book The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity. Just as we engage God through prayer for that which we claim to be true, and we connect with God spiritually through the practice of meditation, so too do we give the GIFT of Tithing to consistently keep in touch with the Infinite Source of our supply, God.”Systematic giving opens the way to systematic receiving,” according to Dr. Ponder. Giving to God 10% of that which we have received to persons or places where you are receiving your spiritual nourishment allows you to enjoy true prosperity with wondrous results.

The practice of the ancient law of prosperity is as old as we are as a species. From primitive man who offered sacrifices to his gods to evolving civilizations of Egyptians, Babylonians and Arabians, Greeks, Romans and Chinese, tithing (the word “tithe” means Read the rest of this entry »

Develop A Prosperity Consciousness

6 08 2006

Brian TracyThe starting point of all riches is the development of a prosperity consciousness. You must become a financial success in your thinking long before you achieve it in your reality.

Both poverty and riches are the result of a state of mind, and the most important single step you ever take on the road to wealth and financial independence is the decision to change your thinking, to impress into your mind an unshakable belief that you can and will achieve your financial goals. This must happen before anything else happens.

Think And Grow Rich…
When I was growing up, I was fascinated by stories of successful men and women and how they made and lost their fortunes, and then made them over again. I read about the importance of a prosperity consciousness in the book, Think And Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill, several times. But I never fully understood what it meant until about five years ago.
