Being versus Getting

I am sitting with my thoughts, thankful for the peace, joy and health that exist in my world. Yet, I am uneasy with the thought that getting has become more important than being.

When did we start being measured by our houses, cars, incomes, vacations, clothing styles and designers....?

My inbox is filled with invitations to seminars, insisting that if I join the call I can make 6 figures, and my life will be transformed. I have listened to a few of these calls, out of curiousity. When they are over, I can't help but wonder how many people choose increased income over increased friendship, love, joy, health, and peace.

Don't misunderstand. I am not against high income, and the enjoyment that results from a good healthy cash flow. What is troubling me, is the feeling that the desire for material wealth has overtaken our desire to be of greater value to the world. I see so many who put money first, and never enjoy their lives. I see people who disregard even thier friends, family and clients, in order to gain the status of their peers. How Sad!

Should our power to manifest be used to amass material riches for ourselves, or should the manifestation be about creating more health, joy, love, peace and general abundance for all?

Somehow I believe that if we all used our power to bless others, then we would never have to ask for ourselves. Perhaps that is the proper interpretation of "It is better to give than to receive".

Just imagine what the world would be like if we all gave more value in service than what we receive in monetary exchange for goods or service? (This is an idea taken from The Science of Getting Rich) What if we sent more blessings of prosperity to our "competition", instead of trying to undercut them? What if we gave more to those who have nothing, instead of cramming our lives with material goods, we never use? What if more of us shared our blankets, clothing and food with the homeless? What would our world be like if we all chose our friends based on who they were, instead of how thier cash flow?

Who would you be if you had time to enjoy life, rather than spending your days seeking ways to "get more". Who would you be, if you were stripped of material worth? Who would you rather be?

Nothing is Secret

Today I am touched by how much we affect the lives of people we don't even know. Our thoughts, feelings, hopes and dreams do reach out beyond our environment into a Universal Consciousness.

The past few days I have had my thoughts and dreams reflected back to me in ways that prove to me "I am not alone". My thoughts are not private, held only within my mind.

I believe in the power of distant healing and prayer. It is part of the life I live, sending blessings, prayers and healing to many others in the world. I have shared the experience of this distant miracle, and I am grateful for this energetic phenomena.

Yet, I am still in awe of how our private thoughts are transported in the same way, without definite intention to anyone in particular. I know you are thinking - how else does law of attraction work? But this goes beyond the setting of intentions - it is the little ideas that you think wouldn't matter. Have you noticed this in your life? Have you paid attention?

It has struck me like a blazing star - NOTHING IS SECRET - Not Even Your Thoughts.

Knowing that nothing you think is really private - what will your thoughts be now?

The Beginning of Vibrant Health

Did you know that your health reflects all the other aspects of your life? Whatever is going on within, shows up in your physical body. Were you aware of that?

If life is painful for you - you likely suffer from chronic pain. If you are holding anger, it may show up as arthritis, cancer, kidney disease or other dibilitating discomfort. Irritation becomes a rash. When you are not standing up for yourself, you may be plagued with lower back or leg conditions. Living in a toxic environment, where lower vibrations exist on a regular basis, may cause liver problems. These are just examples. The list is endless.

If you are suffering, unhappy, angry, filled with guilt, living in fear, or hanging on to grief, it cannot help but show up through physical symptoms.

Those who live in gratitude, positive expectation, love, and forgiveness have a vibrancy about them. Have you noticed that?

This is not meant as a diagnosis, but if you find you are constantly ill or suffer with chronic dis-ease, perhaps it is time to look beyond the medication that relieves the symptoms, but does very little for the root cause.

Ask yourself - how am I "FEELING" today? There is a reason we use the term feeling and it goes beyond physical pain. What is your emotional pain?

While you are taking the prescription from your doctor, you may also want to consult with somehow who can help you with the emotional underlying cause. Sometimes the answer is as simple as taking up a meditation program, releasing beliefs that are causing guilt, or finding ways to increase your vibration through affirmation and positive intention.

Vibrant health is your birthright.
