The Path to Love – Help a Million vs. Make a Million

October 10, 2011

For decades now people, even those in spiritual circles, have lived according to the notion that the goal in life is to make a million (or even a billion) dollars.  But, as my book BEYOND THE SECRET revealed, this approach leads us far away from the path of love.  It is almost common knowledge that after people get their basic needs met (and I mean basic), their capacity for happiness goes down if they don’t become good stewards of their money for the good of all.  To compensate for their egotistical (and sometimes sociopathic) tendencies they resort to more and more addictive, controlling, and abusive tendencies.  In many ways they are “stomach down people.”  They are people who live from the lower drives of power, pleasure, and security and ignore the higher needs of love, compassion, honesty, integrity, vision, and unity with all.

Yet, before the masses become critical of those with wealth let us remember that there is nothing wrong with wealth per se.  As I have often said, if the 1.250 billionaires in the world gave away only 1 billion of their many billions to the 7 billion people on the planet, we would not have significantly less difficulties in the world today.  Fortunately, a number of wealthy people are good stewards of their wealth, though many are not.  But, here is my point – giving away money from the rich to the poor is not the answer.  Raising consciousness is the answer so that we live according to an ethic of LOVE.

What does an ethic of love look like?  Well, it doesn’t look like what most magazines present to us that glorify excess consumption.  Over and over we see celebrities spending anywhere between $30 million dollars on a wedding to $6000 on a pair of boots.  And, we are supposed to be excited and impressed by this?  Consider then how many lives could have been saved on this planet for this same amount of cash.  $100 can keep a child alive for a year in Africa.  So that is 60 lives that could have been saved for one pair of boots or 300,000 lives that could have been saved for a year for one wedding bash.  Yet, instead of feeling repulsed by this, magazines that show us these excessive lifestyles make a ton of cash.

So, why are we doing this?  And, are YOU doing this?  What are we teaching our children around the world with this kind of unloving ethic?  And, why do we want to glorify making a million over and over again as if excessive consumption, greed, and self-indulgent egotistical excess leads to happiness when over and over again we learn that it doesn’t?

An ethic of love looks much different.  It helps a million over making a million and the magazines would then be full of people who live relatively simply giving most of their cash away to help others once their basic needs are met (which can be done at about 50K a year).  Plus, when you are focused on service and helping others, there is nothing to fear. You can lose your money and your power.  But, you can never lose an opportunity to reach out and love others.   At least that is what my BEYOND THE SECRET book asserted one year before the economic crash happened (which I predicted was coming as early as January 2008).  And, I still assert it now.  HELP A MILLION and insist that those who have a million help a million as well.  That is the path to love and the new ethic that will lead us onto that path in the future.

Blessings,

Lisa

Take Back Your Power and Love Yourself

September 6, 2011

As a professional counselor for years I would tell people they needed to learn to love themselves.  But, beyond a platitude, how do you actually do that?  Ironically, one of the ways I discovered how to love yourself, was to consider all the ways people (especially women) were not loving themselves.  And, the more I thought about that, the more I realized that one of the main reasons women were not loving themselves was because of what they were being taught about love (almost all false) especially from movies.  Starting way back as young as when women are girls, they are being taught a variety of false notions about love.  These notions include:

  • Putting yourself last and your man first.
  • Waiting to live your life until a man comes and finds you.
  • Tolerating beastly behaviors.
  • Playing dumb and refusing to see the shadow side of life.
  • Misunderstanding how men learn to love and then confusing sex with love.
  • Settling for half a relationship instead of a whole one.
  • Much, much more!

Ultimately, these false notions were changed into their opposites creating a blueprint for how women (and men) could take back their power, love themselves, and learn to really love each other in the process.  Some of those opposites include:

  • Putting yourself and your dreams first in a healthy way.
  • Getting conscious about what you really want and finding healthy ways to pursue it.
  • Teaching others to treat you well because you know what good treatment looks like and feels like.
  • Knowing how to deal with the light and shadow in an effective way.
  • Discovering how to get a man to really love you.
  • Bringing together love and sex in a playful and healthy way.
  • Learning how to be whole so you can have a whole and truly loving relationship.
  • Settling for half a relationship instead of a whole one.
  • Much, much more!

Now that you know some of the basics why not find out how you can expand on these basics by taking one of the top courses about loving yourself on DailyOM?  Go here and learn to take back your power and love yourself now!

Love and blessings,

Lisa

Self-Acceptance

January 22, 2011
Life is a process. As the heart of life unfolds like petals before us, each of us reaches for the precious jewel at the center, the jewel of Self-acceptance. For most, Self-acceptance does not come easy. Too frequently we succumb to outer appearances, the “shoulds,” and “oughts,” and “maybes” of our own, or others expectations. Instead of embracing ourselves with loving kindness, we obsess that we have missed the mark. In the endless pursuit of perfection, we weigh ourselves in the balance, judging everything according to narrow perceptions in our minds. We are not rich enough, attractive enough, intelligent enough, skillful enough, and so forth. Frantically, we attempt to cover up, to catch up, to undue what has been done in our lives. Hoping we are succeeding, despair can beset us, realizing our efforts have only complicated a simple truth. Accept your Self.

At some time in our lives, it is likely that each of us has touched that mysterious something, known as the Self. In the midst of our pain a space is created. This space allows us to enter a point of stillness. Here, we surrender. We let go. Outwardly, life may remain the same. The debts may be mounting, the job remains unsatisfying. But, inwardly, something changes. We accept our Selves. We open up.

In the private space found within the deep recesses of our hearts, we renew trust that despite outer appearances, we are worthwhile. Like a close and intimate friend, we learn compassion is available to us without judgment or condemnation. It is not so much a matter of forgiveness, which at some level implies adjusting a perceived wrong behavior. It is reaching towards the mysterious inner revelation, where we are loved and understood so completely, we are simply accepted for who we are, with all the seeming imperfections life in this fragile world can offer us.

How potent this realization. In reaching towards the Self, we reach towards wholeness. We discover any situation has elements which can be wielded for the sake of the Divine. All mistakes, all seeming transgressions, are placed on the alter and seen in their true light. We perceive our fears, our doubts, our worries. We acknowledge each one of these represents a failure to trust the Self, to acknowledge our true identities, to embrace Self-acceptance.

Over time, we realize that pain has come from attachment. The human impulse is to control the direction of ones life. The difficulty with this premise, is that human insight is narrow. It cannot perceive the larger whole. Each time we remain ignorant of the whole, for the benefit of the part, it may bring temporary satisfaction, but ultimately it will visit us with long term suffering. This realization is the doorway to wholeness.

Take the time to examine your life’s journey. Move deeply into moments where life did not give you what you thought you wanted. The loss of a loved one. The shattering of a dream. The progression of an illness. The onset of age. The injustices and seemingly unfair moments of life. As long as we fail to allow Self-acceptance into these moments, we are caught in a cycle of pain. We grieve, and rage, and resist the truth of these realities.

Move onward. Examine the times when life bought you moments of great joy. Were they solely based upon perceptions of having “gotten something you have wished for?” Or, was there something deeper there? Something more akin to waking up and realizing that ALL human beings only get a fragment of their hearts desires fulfilled. As a collective whole one person’s fulfillment, is often at the expense of another person’s suffering. As long as we demand from life that it give us only what we believe WE want, we are revealing our darker nature. Our greed, our fears, our anxieties.

But, when we transform, when we open up, we look beyond our small lives. We see as part of the collective, it is unreasonable to insist we have it all. We change. “We” become smaller. The whole becomes greater. We open up to Love. We peer out at the timeless panorama of a midnight sky, and confess we simply do not know what is right for us to have and need. We seek to awaken to that broader perspective.

In the stillness of that moment, we touch the Self. It touches us. A sense of calm comes over us. We notice things we have long forgotten. The beauty of the sunrise. The play of light amongst the shadows. The kind words and silent prayers of others too long ignored. The great sacrifices and noble deeds too frequently left unnoticed. The tender moments for gentleness we left behind. This is what the Self would have us remember. This is what we acknowledge and accept. Life in its grace, life in its mercy, life in its joy. Surrender.
