First we must agree on what we'll call lazy...
At the Budapest University of Technology I had a Math professor who started his first class asking who was the laziest person in the class. I raised my hand, in spite of the fact that you could have argued that I was the most diligent, the most industrious person you have ever known. But I considered myself lazy, and so I raised my hand.
He looked up through his inch-thick spectacles and said: 'You'll be the best in this class...' and he was right. I was the best, but why? I surely could not be the smartest?
He explained that a lazy person looks before he leaps. A lazy person looks at the whole process they consider doing on paper and evaluate it ahead of time. Much like a chess master seeing how the game unfolds. 2
But there is a pesky barrier that you want to go around, and unless you learn how to go around that barrier, your perception is not from reality, but form the past, from memory. From Tree of Knowledge.
We also call these filters, but it has been useless... the word "filters" has also been contaminated. So we'll call these barriers instead... you'll see that I have, again, selected the shrewd and astute way to cut through the crap, and not lead you astray.
The author of the barrier is the mind... or we should say that the mind is OK, the mind is doing what the mind is supposed to do. The barrier really comes from you honoring the mind as a valued advisor, as a loving guide, as a parent, a master, a guru, a god.
In transformational programs, especially in introductions where the whole purpose is to part you from your money, they show how it's done, going around the barrier.
One of the most famous one is this, the famous tennis ball exercise of Werner Erhard
The leader asks the audience if there are any clumsy people there. A few hands go up. The leader selects one, preferably a woman who looks intelligent, educated, and competent.
He asks the woman on stage. Audience claps.
The leader says that they are going to play a game of catch. The ball is a tennis ball... nothing special. The leader throws the ball, the woman tries to catch it, but she shows signs of clumsy. If she doesn't, the leader asks for a new test subject who is really clumsy.
This goes for a while, throw... no catch.
Then the leader changes the game: no need to catch, just watch which direction the ball is spinning. To make it easier on the eye, the leader uses a thick marker to mark the seams of the ball.
The leader throws the ball, the participant lets it drop but shows the leader which way the ball was spinning. She goes to the corner of the room to fetch the ball, throws it back to the leader. This goes on for a few minutes, then, all of a sudden, the woman reaches out the catch the ball with one hand, throws it back to the leader, and then shows with both hands which way the ball was spinning. Another few minutes of this... the audience is holding their breath.
The once clumsy woman is now like a tennis champ... no clumsiness. What happened?
The perception of the ball changed. The game changed. Inside the new game the educated, competent person was asked to use her faculties that she considered good, her eye sight, her ability to tell direction, spinning, and such.
Unawares, she went around the barrier of "clumsy" and was in the territory of "competent."
Now, the method is valid, the method is true, there is only one problem with this exercise: it leaves you dependent on the teacher/company to alter your perception, not you.
Your journey is your journey, and at some point I'll become the barrier.
So I teach you to get out of the mind. You see, clumsy is not real. Clumsy is a label that got stuck to this participant... maybe when she was a year or two old and dropped a ball... and it stuck... permanently, in the mind.
When you can get out of the mind and into reality, you are neither clumsy, nor clever... you are no thing. You have nothing predetermined. Every moment is a new beginning, really. No past, no future. Just now... when you take your first step into the future.
Of course there are techniques... but they all lead there, and they are all techniques to get a different vantage point other than "from the mind."
Now, where does lazy or not lazy come in here? And heaven?!
In the mind you remain a child. In the mind you are waiting for Godot... the savior, the powerful one...
You don't call that lazy, you call that faith. You call that religious.
Mother isn't coming, there is no god, and no one is going to do your work for you.
No one and no thing.
If you are one of those that buy my activators hoping that they will do your work for you, you are in for yet another bitter disappointment, and you are going to plaster the internet with "Sophie is a fraud"... NO. you are the fraud.
You buy stuff and you don't read the instructions. Or if you read, you don't do... expecting miracles, expecting the audios to do the work for you.
They don't, and they won't. I am talking about the Avatar State Audios here... they are strictly co-creation energies: you do and the energy matches your doing.
The newest activator, Effortless Abundance Activator is different in that it is inescapable: you will start releasing your resistance. But you are still the one who has to do the work that will create abundance in physical reality: money, relationships, health... not the activator.
It is shrewd to decide ahead of time if you are willing to do the work. If you have TIME to do the work. If you have reason enough to do the work. If you have the right environment to do the work.
And when you decided, buy or not buy. Don't kid yourself... don't waste your time or money.
I don't want you to buy under false pretenses: there is no carriage that takes you to heaven.
There is no guidance that will take you to heaven. This is the design of the Universe: you need to walk the walk talk the talk and go there... guided or not guided.
I only give you energetic support and guidance. Not a vehicle.

I didn't know I did that, but I was lazy, and I had a lot to do, so I had to consider the time and energy restraint and allocate my resources intelligently. I had to take three buses to school and three buses back. 75 minutes if I was lucky. We had 45 hours of mandatory classes a week, six days a week, and about 96 hours of homework every week.
I didn't have the luxury to jump into things without looking first. I call this "shrewd" or "astute" but I hear that it has been contaminated by do-gooder culture to mean: exploitative... I don't mean that.
Shrewd and astute means: giving it a thought so you can get the most results with the least amount of effort. THAT is the lazy way... and it can take you to heaven, if that is where you want to go.
So, this is what we will call lazy in this article, the shrewd and astute way.
Lazy means: having your life and your time count. Your lazy means the opposite... no significance to your life, so you just hang out. It's ok... but please get: there is no way to heaven your way.
The way to heaven is for those that are willing to do the economical few actions that alter your perception and alter everything thereafter.
Perception is everything
