I've read somewhere that we live in the age of attention. Everyone fights for your attention, and you have little or no control... unless you can control your attention.
How much control do you have over your attention?
Why is that important?
1. where attention goes, energy flows. But... as you'll find out, not all attention is equal...
2. While you are "paying" attention to one thing, you are ignoring everything else.
Attention is a single pointed arrow... it is not very wide cone either.
Your cone of vision is already narrow... why? Because fear, wrong, desire all narrow it... automatically.
Fear, wrong, and desire also urges you to fix what seems to be threatening you... by avoiding it, or by doing something drastic to it.
What happens when you see something that seems to be threatening you? Essentially what happens is that you take that "thing" completely out of context... because in your puny cone of vision you cannot see the larger picture, you cannot see the context.
Context is decisive. It decides what you see when you look... You can only see what agrees with the context.
One of the amazing things I learned from The Jungle Book is that humans are really just monkeys, if we look at their behavior. Lots of chatter, no aim, short attention span, have no ability or even need to think independently...
Very interesting findings. Once you put your attention on a behavior, capacity, characteristic, you start to see what it does for you... or conversely, what the lack of it does for you.
This article may bring some pointers how you can have a life of producing results instead of drama.
Why isn't everyone breaking a path to my door to participate in the Playground, my groundbreaking program?
When I look at my new buyer list, and the products they buy, I get a clearer sense of who I am reaching. I make no effort to reach anyone specific, anyone particular... by the way. I don't know how to reach the person who would be able and willing to even consider taking the long road to where they want to get to. People want instant of near-instant results. Titillating results.
I had a very interesting conversation, in email, with one of my long time students.
It belies one of the fundamental needs of a human: being paid attention to.
You could say: every child is paid attention to, you work for them, you clean them, to feed them, you put them to bed, but being paid attention to is different. It is a need to be personally noticed, considered, and in some way validated... or something breaks inside.
The first question needs to be answered is this: does money have vibration?
And the answer is: no. Neither the pieces of money, bits, bytes, paper or metal... they don't have any "vibration"... and neither does the idea of money, the concept of money.
The second question that needs to be answered: do YOU have a vibration? And the answer is no, you don't have "vibration" either.
So what are we talking about when we assign a certain number to a person? We are talking about what they can see accurately, and what attitude they have towards themselves, the world, and other people.
We compare them with the Ideal Man, the godlike being that was predicted in the scriptures... what is possible for a human on a higher level of evolution. A Human BEING.
Now, does your "vibration", the height matching your personal evolution with the scale of the Ideal Man, have anything to do with money?
