What The Mind of Man Can Conceive

"What the mind of man can conceive and believe, It can achieve."
-- Napoleon Hill

Napoleon Hill, one of the earliest success writers, lived from October 25, 1883 to November 8, 1970. He captured the essence of all success which is the power of belief. He lived through two world wars, depression and certainly many personal challenges. I read his "Think and Grow Rich," "Keys to Positive Thinking" and "You Can Work Your Own Miracles." Long before the "The Secret" came out or anybody spoke about the "law of attraction" Dr. Hill demonstrated in his own life a deep faith in God.

He accepted an assignment from Andrew Carnegie to interview and observe hundreds of successful business men, inventors and clergy of his time. Based on his own research and experiences he came to the conclusion that success is neither luck or many talents but rather belief in oneself and others and hard work. The principles he talks about in his books and lectures are eternal principles and can be applied by anybody who wants to live an extra-ordinary life.

On the website of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, you can find the seventeen principles his teachings are based on, the first one is to have a definiteness of purpose.

The best thing anybody can do during these trying times is to learn and to expand their mind and look up to those who left a legacy of greatness so they can keep a positive mind and a vision beyond their everyday reality.

This is why I love the TEAM because it is made up of men and women who are not satisfied with the status quo. But they are not complaining about it but rather grow and work together to do something about it.

The Coming Economic Meltdown

Yeah, you read that right "the coming" economic meltdown. Oh, you thought it was already here? Think again. In a recent interview Peter Schiff, president of Euro Pacific Capital, scoffs at the notion the economic decline is starting to level off and concedes no government action means a "terrible" recession. But the path of increased government intervention will lead to "unmitigated disaster," says Schiff, who gained notoriety in 2007-08 for his prediction of the housing bubble burst and decline of U.S. Stocks.
The problem, he says, is the government is trying to perpetuate a "phony economy" based on borrowing and spending. With the U.S. Consumer tapped out, the government is "now taking on the mantle" of consumer of last resort, he continues, predicting the bond bubble will soon burst - if it hasn't already - ultimately leading to a collapse of the dollar and an "inflationary depression worse than anything any of us have ever seen."
God has canceled the world’s credit cards. The good news is that in the coming months and next few years, the world will be greatly compelled to discover that which is truly valuable, good and real. The economy is only one small aspect of this global change. We are about to experience a huge awakening to the reality and efficacy of God’s universal principles of living. We must first understand how we arrived at this point. Both genetic science and the Bible now agree that modern humanity began from a single male and female ancestor.
God had intended, as we see in the Biblical narrative, to establish a common identity and universal heritage of one family under God. All of humanity, as true brothers and sisters, were to enjoy the rights and privileges bequeathed to them from a benevolent God. Yet, to this day, we have been totally ignorant of this common heritage. Those original ancestors left behind no record, oral traditions, heritage, spiritual or moral code. Instead, the human history that ensued has been pock-marked by separate cultures each centered upon a unique cultural myth of origin. In every corner of the earth, people devised their own separate identities that were reflective of the unique indigenous terrains and climates in which they emerged.
However, they all displayed one common characteristic: each cultural myth, from Aztec to Navaho to Germanic, proclaimed their people to be the central people in a world full of disconnected “others.” This was a formula for endless rivalry, conflict, war and atrocity as each group vied for territory and resources to preserve their separate identities and group interests. It was through spiritual revelation that God was able to initially communicate to humanity about their plight. Individuals became cognizant, via spiritual channels, of a common human origin that transcended the existing cultural myths. Those revelations were then formulated into an oral tradition and became the foundation of the Hebrew myth of paradise lost recorded in the Book of Genesis.
The Genesis garden narrative reveals additional points about our common origin. Not only do we come from original parents and are to be one family under God, but humanity’s ignorance of this common origin was due to a broken sacred vow and covenant between God and our first ancestors.
We lost our connection to God and those universal principles that have always guided heaven and earth. The bigger picture is that the age of restorative payments for the sins of the past is over, however, and as a result of that, neither are the mistakes of the present going to be deferred to tomorrow’s generations, as has always been the case. America and the world must make a new start around understanding these universal parameters of living. We all must understand the reason why those parameters have at this time become so pronounced and are so suddenly able to manifest their sovereignty.In this age, a true definition of freedom must be proclaimed.
Freedom is not “doing what I please.” True freedom requires two elements: the presence of God and the life of living for others. As Jefferson declared so many years ago, “freedom is a gift of God.”
Secondly, morality between men and women must be restored. A new code of sexual ethics must be promoted and exemplified. Abstinence before marriage and fidelity within marriage between a man and a woman will be the essential condition for God’s blessing and good fortune.
Thirdly, religious rivalry must pass away. It will only happen when all faiths can place priority upon a new ethos. That ethos stands as God’s ultimate aspiration for creating the universe.
God is the loving parent of all humanity and seeks to fulfill the ideal of love with us all. He suffers as a result of those murdered, abused or oppressed in His name. A new economy will emerge upon the efforts of men and women of true freedom, ethics and integrity. True economy is that which develops “ex nihilo” from the effort of those duly empowered as co-creators by the blessing of God. An economy propped up by bailouts, hand-outs, recovery packages, welfare benefits, pensions, retirement benefits, and a bankrupt social security provided by an all pervasive State is the Baal worship of our age.

Grapes, both red and green grape are pretty much available all year around in our supermarkets. They make a nice addition to any platter or just a healthful snack.

Raise Your Vibrations, Change Your Attitude

"The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them."
Albert Einstein

When I read this book years ago, nobody was talking yet about the law of attraction. Ever since the movie "The Secret" came out it is like a buzz word. Even the makers of the movie, people like Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield, Joe Vitale, etc. admit that there is more to the law of attraction than like attracts like.

Lynn Grabhorn, in her book: Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting, explains in a humorous and entertaining way how "We create by feeling, not by thought!"

The way we think......causes the way we feel. . ....and the way we feel. . ....causes the way we vibrate...and the way we vibrate. . ....IS HOW WE ATTRACT!!

The Law of Attraction:
The four steps of deliberate creation:
1. Identify what you don’t want
2. From that, identify what you do want
3. Get into the feeling place of your want
4. Intent – and allow – it to happen

The Secret Law of Attraction and Your Dream Life:

We are spiritual beings having a human experience. Being all energy it makes sense to learn about vibration and how we can change our emotions (energy in motion). Gratitude raises our vibrations, so does appreciation and edification (complimenting and speaking positive) and most importantly devotion to God. The reason we go to church is to be inspired which also raises our vibes.

"If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul."
Rabbi Harold Kushner

The Law of Vibration is the foundation for the Law of Attraction. Other natural laws exist right alongside and are known as law magnetism, cohesion, heat, electricity, and gravity.

After reading Lynn's book I feel motivated to bring myself into that state of feeling empowered, passioned, stirred up and wonderful all the time. Life is not only waiting, our true, authentic self is waiting.

We are living now in a time where God's providence has evolved to the point where we can be truly free from all past restraints of religions, philosophies or beliefs. Rather than seeing everything separate, we become aware that it is the unity between science and religions, the thoughts and the feelings, the left and the right side of our brain have to be synchronized. With this new found trust in our own powers (the core essence which is our God essence) we can truly become part of the New World as responsible citizens and can find solutions to the problems we are faced today.

In the New Biology, Dr. Bruce Lipton explains, that we are not just victims to our genes and heritage but rather that our genes adapt to our beliefs. By changing our perceptions we can control our biology. By changing our vibrations and our beliefs we can attract whatever we want, we are not dependant on scientists, politicians, economists, or my boss. We are in charged of our life and can create it the way we imagine it.
