New Year’s Beliefs, Part IV

Master’s Challenge: Imagine there’s no money; I wonder if you can

Gene Roddenberry could, the author of Conversations with God comes pretty close, and the movie Zeitgeist, Addendum sees it coming, so why not give it a try? If you’re having trouble, watch some Star Trek episodes, or the franchise’s movie First Contact, in which this concept is explained, or go to and watch Addendum, and then begin “dreaming into” it yourself. The internet is moving in this direction; a lot of what is available on the internet is absolutely free, including the Zeitgeist movies. What would your world look like if there was no money?

And revisit John Lennon’s song while you are at it, at:

New Year’s Belief Changes, Part III

Lead from your heart, not just your head

Every time you are about to pay for anything—an electric bill, a massage, a new “toy”—check in with yourself and see if you are developing a knot in your stomach or are having a little trouble breathing. That’s fear. Now, before you actually spend the money, move into your heart and get to a place of joy and/or gratitude for the item you are paying for. If you can’t do it right then, walk away until you can. Maybe that will be a few minutes, a few hours, or a few days, but don’t spend money from a place of fear.

Quit listening to anything which is fear-based

That can be anything or anyone—including your friends—and it can be pretty subtle. “How to Prosper in a Fear Economy” is a cover story of a national magazine’s January issue and, at first glance, seems positive. But why not go further and resolve not to be part of  a “fear economy” at all? Why not resolve to be part of an economy which is based on love, trust, generosity, and prosperity for all, and KNOW that this is possible?

New Year’s Resolutions

Posted on Saturday, January 3rd, 2009

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.

John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963, Thirty-Fifth President of the United States

At my winter solstice gathering most everyone was talking about “paradigm shifts.” It’s in the air, especially in the economy—it’s time for a major shift in how we live our lives on this planet. To help effect this change, I’m challenging myself and you to make a different kind of new year’s resolution—to change an attitude or belief or way of acting in the world which might help bring about the real change Obama and others are talking about. I’ll have some specific suggestions later in the week.
