Important 2013 update to Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich” ~ by Pam Grout

“You are already wealthy, but you have been taught 
not to experience your wealth.” ~ David Cameron Gikandi 

In 1937 when Napoleon Hill wrote his now-classic tome, quantum physics was still in diapers. Einstein, of course, had posited his famous theory of relativity, but quantum physicists didn't completely understand how it worked.

To tell you the truth, they still have trouble making sense of the crazy quantum world that is changed by simple observation. As famous physicist Richard Feynman was known to say, “Nobody understands quantum mechanics.”

However, we do know with complete certainty that thoughts produce energy (much like invisible radio waves) and that they have a significant impact on your life. This energy, in fact, provides the building blocks for your life experience.

The update to Hill’s material should be this: “Think and BE Rich.” Time is irrelevant. You can “be rich” now. Money is only a representation of your “wealth consciousness” and “wealth consciousness” which is the true source of your financial picture is available right at this moment.

Money—or what we think of as money—bills, coins, etc.—are merely tools that demonstrate a person’s “wealth consciousness.” And, in fact, according to David Cameron Gikandi, only 4 percent of money in banks (depending on the country) exist in physical form. Furthermore, he says, “Money is not real. It’s a shadow of something else.”

So by expanding your consciousness into the true abundance of the world, you acquire what is in you already. As Gikandi says, “You have more wealth capability within you than you can possibly experience in a lifetime. Nor do you need to know how to convert wealth consciousness into paper money. It happens automatically when you expand your wealth consciousness.”

In the quantum world, you are connected to everything. You already have all the riches you could ever imagine. They exist right now as probability waves. But that’s the problem. You don’t imagine them.

You keep focusing on what you don’t have.

So back to Napoleon Hill. He advises people to come up with a date when they want a certain amount of money. Sometime in the future. But the trick in the quantum world is to “be rich now.” Again, all your riches already exist in the quantum world.

Being wealthy is an internal state. As Gikandi points out, “It has nothing to do with the outside world. The internal state of wealth is a decision you make right now and you become it right Now. You need nothing outside yourself to make this decision. Do not attempt to get wealth. Be wealth.

“Even in a billion lifetimes, you cannot possibly exhaust the wealthy given to you freely by life. But you can “fail” to receive it by your own thoughts, words, action, and most of all, your chosen states of being.”

The only thing standing in your way is your “wealth consciousness.” Isn’t it time to quit “thinking and growing rich?” Instead, it’s time to Think and BE Rich.

Romancing the stone... ~adapted, Mike Dooley

You live in a dream world of your creation, 
to find your way, discover your power, 
learn what matters and, if feeling magnanimous, 
tip-off eager apprentices with a few tricks.

There's no room for guilt or doubt 
and little need for hesitancy or half measures.

Romancing the stone, 

Keep Moving II ~ Chloe Carlson

Sometimes you lose

the thread,

your certain way

now scattered,

signposts grotesquely disguised,

or dissolving eyes

blinded by defiant wilderness.

We may heed

wisdom's stillness, but then

we need

to move,

even as the narrowing call

to halt


to shrink


pours fear's frigid cement

 immobilizing our hardening feet.


Now it is only the magnificent

elixir of movement's honey

that can extricate,


lubricate the lissome gait

that our hero's heart knows:

living things move.

how can the world be peaceful? 
     ~ Sadhguru 

When the choice is to be right or to be kind,
 always make the choice that brings peace.
     ~ Wayne W. Dyer    

Peace is not happenstance. 
It is a living fire that must be fed constantly. 
It must be tended to with vigilance, 
else it dies out.

Wisdom from The Barefoot Doctor

Everything that exists in manifest form is subject to the 'eternal dance of equilibrium' produced by the interaction of yin and yang, the negative contractive force and the positive expansive dancing a waltz, which, simplistically put, means things go your way then go against you, then go your way and so on, and to get lost in the depths of despair on the down is as much a total waste of energy as getting lost in the exuberance of the high on the up. The art of the sage is to cleave to the core of rather than get lost in the surface of things, similar to straddling the center of the seesaw, so you feel and are gently, profoundly moved by the motion yet neither smashed to the ground nor hurled into the air by it.

This you achieve by sinking backwards inside - into the back of your body - softening your heart to stay connected through love to all that is - and bearing witness from there, with full delight for being alive whether it's moving through an up or a down - and that way you're winning all the time.

I say this in respect of just having gone through what I think is technically called a nasty cancer scare for the past three weeks but for which I got the all-clear yesterday. Deploying the above stratagem throughout the whole process of facing death, infirmity, and so on, my equilibrium and delight didn't waver for a moment.

This ancient Taoist shit works in other words.
