From No Reward to BIG Reward
Some of us have learned (in error, I believe) that we can't expect or hope for a "reward" in this life -- they are all held back for the next. It may take until late in life (if at all) for us to learn that the more it seems our life is a disaster, the more reward we can take from it if we but learn and act.
About 70 percent of people who suddenly receive a windfall of cash will lose it within a few years, according to the National Endowment for Financial Education.
I think most of us know those stats but I wanted to make sure I woke you out of your trance, before letting you know more what my posts are about. I did a little research today and although the people I listen to, talk with, run with, however you want to say it, may be pretty much the same ones you do; I think you might find it as jarring as I did to hear it from the horse’s mouth, so to speak.
Yes, the opening quote and its message get bandied about quite a bit, but I wonder how deep the thinking most people put into it goes. For anyone who wouldn’t mind winning, as they say, a windfall of cash, there is good argument for taking soberly other’s experiences.
Melissa Chan of time.com quoted a lottery winner saying things I definitely would not want ever to have cause to say in my life: “I just don’t like Jack Whittaker. I don’t like the hard heart I’ve got,” he said. “I don’t like what I’ve become.”
There’s easily a day’s worth and more of information that reads at least as much a cautionary tale as you’ll ever find of delight regarding human response/reaction to winning things of any worth and size you can find in this world.
I went looking for it thinking there must surely be others sharing some of what I have in mind to share with you. I wouldn’t be able to say definitively that there aren’t. Truth is I know there are because I AM well aware there are for I have been learning it for many years. I could not find them in the searches I went on today and these searches are more what I believe most people do.
I’m taking a long time to get around to telling you it’s with a sinking heart I find myself in the minority, once again. My intention is to share with you from my vantage point what it is that I have learned to prepare myself to receive more of what I desire in life. I’ll be talking about things like thoughts and vibration and feeling good and quantum physics and such. My heart is sinking because the majority of you generally don’t want anything to do with learning about those things.
It’s a rare human who hasn’t spent considerable time being in the majority. I’ve spent way too much time there myself. How quickly my memory of the long journey I’ve taken to come out from there fades and recedes from memory. Nonetheless, I wake more often now and find myself as eager as ever to be around those WHO WANT TO KNOW.
Life can be very good and it can feel very good to feel it that way but it takes a type of work, a type of commitment, a kind of focus that it seems most people are unaware of. To the extent they are aware, they decry it, mock it, deride it so as to clarify for themselves over and over that they are not willing to take that route.
When I was a child and I thought about conscience, I felt I had an unwieldy one, and it was a serious burden to me. I’m feeling similar feelings now, so I’m pretty sure that unless you are willing to learn what you can from me about the route I’ve described, you’ve already left the building (as they used to say about Elvis).
So, if you’re remaining, I love it and look forward to sharing with you. I’m hoping you might share with me, soon, as well. Talley ho!
