4 Steps to Affluence

4 Steps to Affluence

Why not adopt God as the role model of affluence? After all, no one is more affluent than God, for God is the field of all possibilities.

The Four Steps to Affluence
1. You slip into the gap between thoughts. The gap is the window, the corridor, the transformational vortex through which the personal psyche communicates with the cosmic psyche.
2. You have a clear intention of a clear goal in the gap.
3. You relinquish your attachment to the outcome, because chasing the outcome or getting attached to it entails coming out of the gap.
4. You let the universe handle the details.

One of the easiest and most effortless ways of slipping into the gap is through the process of meditation.

Lots of people think Gid needs their help in getting rid of abortion doctors or burning sinners at the stake to drive the devil out of them... some seem to think God is helpless without THEM to do their personal Gods bidding or their God franchises bidding.. some people even mistake themselves and there ideas for Gods... or make Gods of Ideas...which might be a graven mental image....
