If you get one thing out of this blog post, get that manifesting abundance does not have to be hard. In fact, it’s quite the opposite as you’ll soon discover. Over the last 25 years, ever since I read “As a Man Thinketh” by James Allen, I have been a passionate student of the art, and some would say science, of Abundance. With often miraculous results. The Laws of Abundance, or the Abundance Mindset often times sounds very anecdotal and ethereal.

It’s funny how things seem to be accidental but then afterwards you kind of wonder. For instance the other day in my email I mentioned Joseph Conrad telling you to “Follow your bliss”. But as a few people pointed out, of course, it was actually Joseph Campbell. J.Conrad wrote “Heart of Darkness”. The inspiration for one of the all time movie classics “Apocalypse Now”. Anyway, what seemed an accidental mistake actually reminded me of an even more powerful message.
It was a sticky note someone had left on his car saying: “Have a good day and smile” Like a random message of kindness. Wonderful! And it got me thinking… If I was going to grab a sticky note and scribble something helpful and generous… What would it be? What would you write? You don’t get a lot of space. So even if you write small, you need to be snappy with your words.
Because, as their inventor Dean Kamen famously said: “The city needs a car like a fish needs a bicycle” It was a strange but very cool experience… At first it was wobbly. But then it was fun. The experience reinforced two powerful lessons for me. Balancing can be difficult at first but, persevere and you always get there in the end Where you travel in your mind, you travel in reality
“How can I discover my source code?” and “I just don’t know what I’m good at or what my purpose is” The quick answer is to focus on what you enjoy doing. In the words of Joseph Campbell “Follow Your Bliss” FYB is not the destination. It’s the journey. The thing is you can’t discover your source code in the same way you solve the treasure hunt. In some ways it’s elusive like the gold at the end of the rainbow.
In fact, it’s fine to sometimes feel 0%. Crushed and deflated. Nothing for us to feel guilty about. But we do anyway. Somehow we have to show the world our perfect, struggling, martyr-like self. “Hey look at me dancing in the rain and smiling through it all. Even though I have toothache and credit card bills stacked as high as the Eiffel tower on my kitchen table.” Actually crashing is fine.
Yesterday my daughter started giggling in the back seat of the car. And she giggled so much she couldn’t stop. I said “Be careful or you’ll run out of batteries” Which made her laugh even more. Measuring energy can abstract. But we know it’s a real thing. How much energy will it take to turn a frown upside down? How much energy will it take to change the world?
I had a teacher called Mr Durham. He told my mother that I had a PROBLEM. Apparently, I kept standing up and walking out of class because I was bored. I can vouch that this is probably true. To me he was boring (other than the fact he drove the miniature train at the local park) He didn’t think he was boring. To him, I had an attitude problem.
Every day survived is a miracle and a gift. I shudder when I look back and remember taking entire days for granted without celebrating and squeezing every last drop of juice from them. Our days and our gifts are simply not for squandering. I’m not something for us to feel guilty about. (That doesn’t help at all) Although it’s definitely worth being vigilant about and mindful of. In fact it’s super exciting.
Have you ever done the Myers Briggs test? If you do you’ll be given a 4 letter result that profiles you. Mine is BDFS. Before you go and check it out, I’ll save you the sweat and bother… There’s no such “official” result. Which is why I love being BDFS. I can make up my own rules by which I play the game. » Enjoy reading this post?
As the ice caps melt, it’s easy to be sad or even angry. But surely, without belief in something better, we end up charging the battery negative? Pee’ing in the swimming pool for everyone? Whereas the more the positive energy wins. The better things get. So we all know our job. It’s a simple one. Keep pushing. » Enjoy reading this post?
