Excerpt from How To Program Your Mind For Wealth
Your desires are directions for your psychological development as a human being. If you follow your desires, and ask yourself why you truly want the things that you want, you will find that your desires always lead to the attainment of certain emotional states.
For example, right now you desire prosperity. But what is it that prosperity will give you? Do you really want thousands of hundred dollar bills stocked away that will be the physical symbol of your wealth? Or do you actually desire the feelings you think you will have if you possessed enough cash?
The answer is obvious. You do not want actual money; that is, bits of colored paper that need to be safeguarded from others.
What you want is freedom, independence, the ability to share, to solve problems, to heal yourself and others. Ultimately, you want to be happy. These are feelings, not things.
These are emotional states that you desire. And why do you desire these states? Because they are the next level in your psychological evolution as a human being. You want to give more, have more, and experience more. So you should look upon your desires as positive, growth-inducing emotions.
Unfortunately, we are often conditioned to feel guilty for wanting too much. Many believe that there is a blatant contradiction between wanting to have it all and feeling empathetic to the plight of less fortunate people. Basically, we are led to believe that it is evil to be rich in a world filled with poverty.
This attitude misses a crucial truth of humanity. Evolution is an individual experience, and each individual must learn for him or herself how to manifest more of the life energy we all desire. We cannot help others by being pulled down by the “reality” of the world’s suffering. Empathy does not mean you must be as sad and poor as the rest of humanity. True empathy means that you use your personal power, your hopeful energy, and your wealth to solve the situations of the world that you find unsatisfactory. Only when each individual stakes their claim to divine power can negative physical experiences be alleviated.
Take five minutes right now and feel the truth of these words:
I DESIRE POWER, FREEDOM, ENERGY AND WEALTH. I DESIRE THESE FOR MYSELF AND FOR EVERY BEING ON THIS PLANET. I WILL USE MY PERSONAL POWER TO HELP LIFT THE STATE OF THE EARTH TO A MORE SATISFACTORY LEVEL. MY DESIRES ARE POSITIVE, GROWTH-INDUCING EMOTIONS.
TAKE ACTION: Your assignment today is to banish the guilt of desire. Feel grateful, blessed that you are in the position to draw wealth to you and make a commitment to use your wealth and power to help change the conditions of the world with which you are uncomfortable.
“One must not lose desires. They are mighty stimulants to creativeness, to love, and to long life.” — Alexander Bogomoletz
