The Challenge

Saturday, January 31, 2009

Here we have the forward to the book, The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles, it was written by Ed O'Neal in 1975. I thought it might be a good way to preface our upcoming project.

The challenge that faces all of us today is certainly one that is partly of our own making. Most of us consider it a problem and try to treat the symptom rather than the cause. However, a small shift in our thinking and that which seemed to be a problem is seen for what it is - a challenge - one that we can overcome on our own.

This challenge, which most of us view as a problem, is one of money.

First, let us define money. Simplified, it is a medium of exchange which saves us from having to barter our goods and services. Actually, it is much more than that. Faith, hope and trust are also a part of money, and there are many theories about its use and value. The practical and esoteric aspects of money occupy the time and talents of many people.

Here again, we will simplify - money is the teethmarks on the golden rule - do unto others as you would be done unto. The amount of money you get and accumulate is the measure of service you render to others. Another simplicity, several, in fact - "find a need and fill it," "what goes around, comes around," "cast your bread upon the waters" - there are many more. Don't get caught up in them. Seemingly they are simple. However, there are myriads of facets in those statements. Use them to stimulate your thinking, but not as a practice without understanding.

In this small book (
and in our next project) you will find steps to follow which if you do so diligently, striving always for understanding and monitoring your actions objectively, you will walk right into the riches you deserve.

Wallace Wattles, spent his entire life working out the principles and actions found herein. Through trial and error and much study and thought he honed and polished his actions, and in the final years of his life, using these principles and actions, he began to manifest abundance in his life.

He was a pioneer and like the early trappers blazed the trails which became freeways, in this case, to riches. He laid out the groundwork - it is up to you to use the spade.

Hi guys, Now that I'm feeling much better, we've got a great new project to explore. What with the economy being what it is, jobs being what they are, I thought this would be an excellent time to dedicate ourselves to the study of The Science of Getting Rich.

This nifty little book was originally published as a series of articles printed in The Nautilus, a little magazine popular in the early 1900's, a time when money was scarce and jobs were just as hard to come by as they are now. Daniel and I talked it over, and we decided to go through the entire book even if it takes more than our usual 30 days. I'll try to break it up so that it's not too much to read in one sitting, and at the end of each post, I'll be posing a question for us to think about and share our answers (or lack thereof).

Illustrations for this project will be desktop wallpapers of castles and other luxury homes and vistas as eye candy to help stimulate "big" thinking as we work the project.

Please join us as we do the work and investigate the principles and learn The Science of Getting Rich. Invite your friends and family along for the ride! Let's find out if it really does work!

PLASTIC SURGERY


I've been out of commission for a while now, several people have emailed, so I thought it might be appropriate to provide an explanation for my absence from the world wide web.

It was like this... I was running a marathon with my eyes closed when suddenly, BAM!

LOL. Ok, that's not quite true. Metaphorically speaking, it is exactly what happened, but the more mundane truth of the matter is that I have been really really sick and am only just now feeling well enough to sit at the computer for longer than 5 minutes. I finally figured out what was up with me (Celiac Sprue), found a "cure" (a strict diet - bleah!!), and am slowly regaining my energy and enthusiasm for living.

Thanks to those who sent Reiki, and laughter, and love, and support. You are deeply appreciated!
