To me, God is an entity that is the creator of creation.  I choose to call it God, although some call it Buddha, Allah, Krishna, Jehovah, Yahweh, Jesus, Universe, Energy, and the list goes on.  It does not matter what we call it.  The only thing that matters is that we become one with it, if you so choose.

My question to you… do you make your heart beat or does it just beat?  Do you make your lungs inflate and deflate or is this part of a natural process?  If you are not doing those bodily functions, then the question remains. Who or what is keeping you alive in the physical world?  So, who is driving the body?????

Just as you get inside of a car and drive, so too do you drive the body.  What color is this being?  What does it look like?  This I know for sure, the being driving the body is colorless, boundless, and ageless. It’s forever flowing and in constant seek of peace and oneness with all of creation.

The war is not between flesh and blood but, our thought processes that’s constantly creating our physical reality. Every moment of our awakened life is a constant war between thoughts that bring forth peace, love, happiness and thoughts that bring forth envy, lust and hatred. So… I’m not your enemy, the enemy is you.  Let me elaborate, I am not scared of you, terrorist attacks, or any military force.  I’m scared of the enemy inside of me!

So, the enemy is the part of you that wants you to live in anger, rage, hatred, depression, stress, and all the ill emotions that causes the human family to suffer.  It is the part of you that tells you… “I’m stupid.”  “I can’t do anything right.”  “I’m a failure.”  “I’m too fat.”  “I hate myself.”  Do you get the picture?  Your enemy is your negative thoughts and feelings that cause destruction to the human soul.  The human soul is your true nature.  The human soul is your god self!  The part of you that wants you to live with and in peace, harmony, love, happiness, prosperity, compassion, wholeness, and abundance.  

You see, this presence that most of the world calls God is not outside of you, it is within. You have the divine ability to access this presence at any given moment, and like I said earlier, this is nothing more than your true nature or your god (higher) self.  So, the war is between your inner beings and not the circumstances, situations, or elements of the physical world.

This is the miracle of human potential and potentiality is the key to existence!  And through this miracle you have the potential to become a child of God, again, if you so choose.

Let me explain this to you a little more in detail if I may…  

If you take an apple seed and cut it in half, do you see an apple tree?  No, you see the potentiality of an apple tree coming into existence. What has to happen in order for the seed to become a tree?  The seed must give its wisdom to the earth and the earth must, in return, give its wisdom to the seed in the form of fertilization (fertile soil). The sun and the rain must also give its wisdom to the earth. What is taking place here?  I call it the miracles of life because it’s unconditional love and a mutual respect between the seed, earth, rain, and the sun that gives the seed the potential to become a beautiful apple tree.

You are that seed my sisters and brothers.  You have the divine ability to become what you desire because,  what you desire desires you in return.  You must give what you wish to receive!  The answers of creation and your Creator are within the inner beatings of your heart.  Your brain is hardwire to know God.  Who is God?  Look in the mirror and look deep within your eyes and it’s presence will reveal itself… only when you are seeking. 

You’ve heard the old saying, when the student is ready the teacher will appear.  Well, when the child is ready his/her Creator will appear!  

Besides God being everything in existence which it claims to be, and if this is true,  then you too must be God right?  You are God manifested in the physical form.  You are a spiritual being having a human experience here in this physical dimension.  You are “NOT” a human being in search of your spiritual self.

You must understand that the “spiritual” world is simultaneously operating within the physical and is actually controlling it . Again, what’s keeping your heart beating?  You can’t see the spiritual world but it lives.  It is within us, around us, and surrounds us.  You are the creator of your physical reality.  You create your reality by the way you think and your decision making.  You attract into your life circumstances and situations based off your thought processes.  In short, you’ve attracted this message into your life, on this very day, because of your thoughts and emotional responses concerning the subject matter at hand.  Hence the terms, “Ask and it is Given” or “Seek and you shall Find.” This process is also called the “Law of Attraction.”

You co-create your everyday with the creations that’s been here since the beginning of time.  We don’t create nothing by ourselves!  Everything that is here has been here.  We co-create with everything in existence.  Everything you ever wanted in life is here for you.  However, you must align yourself with your intension and manifest your desires, because again, you are the creator of your desires and you co-create with the elements that will bring forth those desires.

This is just my knowing and I’m still a student of life just as you.  Never stop searching for divinity!  The answers are within you.  And yes, there are helpful tools to help us along our journey like the Bible, Torah, Vedas, Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads, and the teachings of Buddha. I also recommend you learn about quantum physics and how this science will “help” bridge the gap between the physical and spiritual world at large.

In my conclusion I would like to leave you with two bible versus from the Book of Genesis.

GENESIS 1:26 – Then God said…

“Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth.”

GENESIS 1:27 – continues to say…

“God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”

The answers to your burning questions are within you.  I think the truest question shouldn’t be, who is God? I think the question should be, who are YOU, the being driving the body in this physical world?  Why?  Because we were born with the gift of knowledge to know God.  And, in knowing God is knowing us! 

We are emotional vibrating beings and we manifest our thoughts and bring them from the world of the unseen– into the world of form. The Law of Attraction is very real but, it’s more than what we are thinking.  Why?  Because man can’t eat from bread alone.  It takes another part of us to truly manifest our thoughts and that is how we are FEELING!

Our feelings are the greatest vibration.  If I think it, will I manifest it?  Maybe.  If I “feel” strongly about what I am thinking, will I manifest it?  Absolutely!

Jesus said, “As a man thinketh in his HEART so is he.”  Jesus did not say, “As a man thinketh in his mind…”  Why would he say “heart?”  Because Jesus understood, even back then, that our feelings are the greatest emotional vibration.  The heart generates the feeling and it’s through our feelings that we are truly manifesting.

You see, when you don’t feel good about something, the heart sends a message to the brain and the brain creates mental pictures and dialogs based off what your feeling.  But it’s the feeling that’s the strongest vibration and it’s through your feelings that you attract certain people and situations into your life.

How could this be?  Well, there is an electromagnetic field that surrounds your heart and affects every cell within the body temple. This electromagnetic field also extends beyond the body for several feet.  This has been proven in science with special sensitive measuring devices.  Some feel, including myself, that this electromagnetic field around our heart extends out from our body for several miles.

This is where Law of Attraction comes into play.  This electromagnet field attracts like energy, just as a magnet attracts to metal.  Is this what the Bible meant by, “Ask and It Is Given?”  Not asking with words but asking with our mind and heart based off our vibrational frequency.

The heart is the key to universal and unconditional love.

The heart is also the pipeline from the physical world into the spiritual.

Truth is truth.  Nothing more, nothing less.  Before there was truth there was nothing!

Truth is timeless just as your highest Self.  Truth is eternal just as your highest Self.  Truth is ageless and everlasting … just as your highest Self.

Truth is to know and to KNOW transcends belief.

I was searching online and I came across this story that I would like to share with you.  It made me think and it also touched me in a unique way.  After you read the story I would like you to leave your thoughts and comments.  Thank you and happy reading. – Judah Kochies

Did God create everything that exists? Does evil exist? Did God create evil?

A University professor at a well known institution of higher learning challenged his students with this question. “Did God create everything that exists?”

A student bravely replied, “Yes he did!” “God created everything?”

The professor asked. “Yes sir, he certainly did,” the student replied.

The professor answered, “If God created everything; then God created evil. And, since evil exists, and according to the principal that our works define who we are, then we can assume God is evil.”

The student became quiet and did not answer the professor’s hypothetical definition.

The professor, quite pleased with himself, had boasted to the students that he had proven once more that the faith in a God was a myth.

Another student raised his hand and said, “May I ask you a question, professor?”

“Of course”, replied the professor.

The student stood up and asked, “Professor, does cold exist?”

“What kind of question is this? Of course it exists. Have you never been cold?” Said the Professor.

The other students snickered at the young man’s question.

The young man replied, “In fact sir, cold does not exist. According to the laws of physics, what we consider cold is in reality the absence of heat. Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-460 F) is the total absence of heat; and all matter becomes inert and incapable of reaction at that temperature. Cold does not exist. We have created this word to describe how we feel if we have no heat.”

The student continued, “Professor, does darkness exist?”

The professor responded, “Of course it does.” The student replied, “Once again you are wrong sir, darkness does not exist either. Darkness is in reality the absence of light.  Light we can study, but not darkness. In fact, we can use Newton’s prism to break white light into many colors and study the various wavelengths of each color. You cannot measure darkness. A simple ray of light can break into a world of darkness and
illuminate it. How can you know how dark a certain space is? You measure the amount of light present. Isn’t this correct? Darkness is a term used by man to describe what happens when there is no light present.”

Finally the young man asked the professor, “Sir, does evil exist?”

Now uncertain, the professor responded, “Of course, as I have already said. We see it everyday. It is in the daily examples of man’s Inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil. To this the student replied, “Evil does not exist, sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God’s love present in his heart. It’s like the cold that comes when there is no heat, or the darkness that comes when there is no light.”

The professor sat down.

The young man’s name – Albert Einstein

Racism is an emotional disease that plagues the very person that is attached to it.  In order for mind and body to be consumed in racism, one must have a sense of self hatred.  How can you love others when you have no love for self?  Through our feelings of self hatred, we allow the watering of seeds that destroys the very fabric of our being.  We water the seeds of destruction by allowing negative energy to dwell within our circle of influences.

Just as the Spirit, Higher Self, God Self, Soul or whatever you decide to call this Divine Intelligence, uses our brain as a tool to operate the body, so too do we as conscious beings of insight use tools to educate the masses. The tool… “Knowledge of Self” through proper education.

In order to educate those about knowledge of self, we must first understand that having knowledge of self is having the divine knowledge of God and you can’t have one without the other.

Proper education means constant elevation! This means that proper education is supposed to cultivate what God has put within so that those of us who are cultivated can share with those who are not.  Not for our own personal glory or political gain, but for Divine purpose.

Praise belongs to God who is the nurturer and the care-giver of it’s children, evolving and making them sustain greatness and wisdom so they can reach a level of spiritual consciousness and human excellence.

Let’s help end racism, poverty, war and other means of human destruction by being the tool of self knowledge for the human family.

I love you because you’re me.  And… I AM present!

The best way I can explain String Theory is:

Think of the universe as a quilt.  Now this quilt has patterns and the patterns are everything that’s inside the universe (stars, planets, human beings, etc.)  What is holding this quilt together?  It’s the yarn (or “string”) that holds the quilt together.  You can’t describe the quilt without describing the patterns.  You can’t describe the patterns without describing the yarn.  Everything is connected and everything is one.

Now, it’s said that the yarn (or “string”) is the mind of God because it’s the yarn that is holding the quilt together and it’s the yarn that creates the patterns.  Everything has it’s purpose and place!

This is where the miracles of universal oneness takes it’s shape.  How can you describe yourself without describing the plant kingdom?  The plant kingdom gives you the oxygen and sugar you need and, in return, you give what the plant kingdom needs through a process called Photosynthesis.  How can you describe yourself without describing the ground you walk upon?  How can you describe yourself without describing human beings and life as we know it?

We are all interconnected and not separate from anything in existence.  We are connected and woven together by an unseen force, an unseen string that we call string theory.  As I mentioned earlier, string theory is sometimes referred to as the mind of God.  Without this mind of God, nothing can exists.

There’s a little more to string theory than I described here.  When talking about string theory you must understand that the string is vibrating and it may form a circle or have two points.  I believe this new science and discovery will bridge the gap between science and religion. 

Quantum physics and other related branches of science are shifting the way we think about God and our universe.  This science is introducing us to an intelligent wisdom that has created everything in the universe.  This intelligent wisdom, that we call God, has been the driving force behind the human experience and is in fact our spirit at work.  Furthermore, this science will be the proof we need that God really does exist.  Something we’ve known about since our beginning.

Please feel free to leave your thoughts on string theory and quantum physics.  I would like to know what you think and feel about the subject.  Do you agree?  Disagree?  Let me know what you think.

I can go on about how we are TRULY ONE with all of creation and not separate from anything. However, I hope the above helps.

Many of you may not know how or what it means to buy property using conventional financing.  If you are new to real estate investing, the conventional way of acquiring properties is NOT the beast way to get started.  Even if you are a seasoned investor, the traditional ways of buying property are not idea.

So, how do you buy properties using conventional methods?  Simple, you (1) find the property, (2) pay the large downpayment (usually with your own money), and (3) pay the remaining balance through a lending institution.  Lets not forget the lending institution will check to see if you have good credit, you have 20-30 percent to put down, and if you have a steady flow of monthly income.

Now, if the lending institutions let you borrow the cash needed to buy properties, you may have to spend time and money fixing up the dwelling, finding renters, taking care of maintenance, etc.  However, in the end, you’ve built equity in your investment properties by appreciation over the years and paying down the loan.  This is a good strategy but in my humble opinion, not the best or smartest one to use.

Everybody knows that real estate has created more millionaires than any endeavor.  So, why aren’t more people investing in real estate?  It’s because most people fear this opportunity and here’s why…

Pitfall 1: You Need a Large Downpayment.  Lending institutions are hesitant about lending investors money to buy property.  Why?  Because the lending institutions may think investors are not serious enough about paying off the underlying loan because, 9 times out of 10, the investor will not be living in the dwelling.  Lending institutions may also require you to put down 20-30 percent of the purchase price.  If you only buy properties this way and keep putting 20-30 percent down, then your pockets will be empty while your property value is high.  In other words, you will become “property rich” and “cash broke.”

Pitfall 2: Real Estate Investing is Very Risky.  When using your own money to invest in real estate, it can become extremely risky.  Why?  The more money you have tied into a deal, the higher your risk factor.  If you have $30,000 tied into a property worth $100,000, you can’t just walk away from the deal if things get ugly.  The only way to lower your risk is to have little or no money tied into any property.  Always try to keep your investment dollars at zero.

Pitfall 3: Negative Cash Flow (NCF).  Though the idea of buying property to hold for the long term is good, NCF or negative cash flow can play a major role in your monthly profit from your renters.  You may have $100 in positive cash flow on any one property but, if you’re always fixing broken toilets every month, then you’re generating NCF.  What if the roof of your property collapsed.  You as the owner will have to pay to have it replaced.  You have to take care of both minor and major problems.  Also, who is going to mow the lawn and take care of the landscaping?  Even if you don’t do those things yourself, you’ll have to pay someone to do it for you.

Pitfall 4: Becoming a Tired Landlord.  If you acquire a large amount of properties at any given time, you will become a tired landlord.  This is when you become so involved in the day-to-day maintenance and managing of your properties.  You’ll quickly start to see that you don’t have the time to go out and buy more properties, which is something you should be doing if you want to strike it rich in real estate.  You could hire a real estate managing company to manage your properties but, you’ll waste time just making sure the company you hired is doing their job correctly.

You don’t have to go through the four pitfalls I describe above to make money in real estate.  You have to become a smart investor.  There are several creative real estate investing strategies you can use right now to get started making money in real estate.  Strategies such as lease options, purchase options, wholesaling, short sales, and subject-to deals.  These creative techniques will allow you to buy or control properties with little or no money down.   

I hope this information served you well.  Before I go I want to leave you with this final thought…

Smart real estate investing is the key to real estate wealth.    

Do you really understand the power of Positive Self Talk (PST)? The way you talk to yourself is very important to the success you desire. If you want to be successful in any area of your life, you must first learn to talk to yourself in a positive and constructive way. The way we do this is with positive statements that you make to yourself which increases your confidence and well being.

Below I’ve listed the 3 keys to these positive statements that we call affirmations.

Key #1: Personal – Affirmations should always be personal

This means that you should always begin with the word “I.” Never start an affirmation with the word “You” or “We.” For example, the proper way to use affirmations would be to say, “I like myself” or “I can do anything my heart desires.”

Key #2: Positive – Affirmations should be positive and never negative

For you to have confidence and live life more abundantly, you must always talk to yourself in a positive and loving manner. Never use words or phrases that will send your inner self into a dark place. You have a choice to talk positively or negatively to yourself and about yourself.

Key #3: Present Tense – Affirmations should be said in the NOW

When using affirmations effectively, you should always say things in the present tense as if it were happening in the now. The proper way to say things in the now would be to say, “ I AM happy” or “I AM a non smoker” or “I AM living a healthy life.” Never use “I will.” By using “I will” you are placing your statement in the future and your subconscious mind does not recognize anything that is stored for future purposes. Always us “ I AM.”

If I could leave you with one secret of success it would be to talk to yourself about the things your heart desires and never talk to yourself about the things your heart does not desire. See yourself becoming what you want to accomplish and talk to yourself in that manner. Try this for 30 days and see if you don’t begin to acquire more and have a sense of inner peace.

“Laziness is like a mean snake in the grass.  If you don’t watch out, it will sneak up on you and bit you in the butt.”

“A little less motivation, a little extra sleep, a little extra food on the plate, and laziness will be knocking at your door.  What next?  Opportunity will stop knocking!”

“Laziness is like a drug addiction.  Once you’ve been conditioned for so long, it’s very hard to bounce back.”

“Health and fitness … very important when concerning human development.  Allow laziness to creep into your being and you can throw your human potential out the window.”

“We live in a world of dualism so the opposite of laziness is motivation.  What creates motivation is a burning desire to accomplish a goal and succeed.  Learn to water this seed and laziness will get no playing time.  Laziness will be standing alone on the sidelines of shame.”   

“The definition of laziness is to be inactive, sluggish, or idle.  Tell me, does this definition define your existence?  I hope not.”

“You can’t get rid of laziness.  Laziness lives inside of all of us.  The secret is to not let laziness control your life.”

“Motivation can’t work for you if you don’t have a major definite purpose.  You must find your “why” in life and let the universe take it’s course.”

“The driving force behind every accomplishment is the determination to achieve that particular goal.  Once you figure out what you want for your life the how becomes easy.” 

“Those who have mastered self welcomes failure.  They understand that failure has an opposite and the opposite is at one with it’s counterpart.”

“In order to achieve and overcome what seems impossible, you must first have a burning desire to succeed.”

“Never let your comfort zone stand in the way of your dreams.  This is robbery at it’s core.  Robbery is seen as the crime of stealing property by violence or intimidation.  My question to you,  Are you intimidated by your comfort zone?  If the answer is yes, then you are probably experienceing some inner violence.”

“If you can think it, then you can achieve it.  If you can achieve it, then everything is ultimately possible for you.”

“Giving is life’s most basic fundamental.  You are born with the gift of giving and through this gift, abundance and prosperity is manifested.”

“Silent giving is powerful giving.  By giving blessings, happiness, joy, and appreciation to the human family, you are connecting with God which transcends love and peace.”

“Behind every gift should be the intention to create happiness which then generates peace in your world at increased levels.”

“The more you give, the more you’ll receive because you’ll keep the Divine Cosmic Energy of the universe flowing in and out of your life.”

“When you stop the flow of giving and receiving, you are interfering with nature’s wisdom and intelligence.”

“In every apple seed is the gift of an apple tree.  In order for the seed to become an apple tree, the apple seed must first give it’s wisdom to the earth so the earth can cultivate the seed with fertile soil.  Only then can the earth give back to the seed in the form of the apple tree.  This is a divine invisible flow of universal energy. A positive give and take relationship.”

“Growth is the essence of life. Anything that is not growing is dead. You water the rose bush so that it will bring forth beauty. Why then do you fail to water the fruits of your soul?”

“Just as change is everlasting, so is growth. In order to manage change you must grow mentally, spiritually, and emotionally on a daily basis. Be resilient by manifesting the miracle of growth.”

“Practice the habit of growing by feeding your mind with positive visualization.  By developing a positive mental attitude, you increase your chances of self mastery by 1000%.”

“Growth is not just growing tall or wide. Growth is seeing yourself worthy to receive the rewards from God.”

“Never spend major time on the things that doesn’t bring abundance to your life.  For this to happen you must become a master of time management. By managing your time effectively, you must seek constant elevation by becoming aware of what’s truly important to you. This is a form of self growth at it’s core.”

“In order to become enlightened, you must foster positive attitudes formulated from principle centered values. This means you must grow by realizing you are a reflection of a Divine Intelligence.”

“As children, we are not taught the importance of self growth. This kind of neglect causes us to place ourselves into social standards.  What an awful way to live your life.  A life of mediocrity.”

It is every persons dream, who lives in a “civilized” society, to live the lavish life.  To be able to travel the world and buy the things you want and deserve without worry.  To live in a big home in a prosperous community.  To drive the best and latest cars.  To wear the best clothes designed from the top clothing designers in the world.  To send your children off to the best schools for the best education possible. 

Some may even say… “In order to have those things I need to be rich.”  It’s true, in order to live the kind of lifestyle I described above, you must have the income.  However, you don’t need to be materially rich, you must first become mentally rich.

To me being rich is having knowledge of self, true happiness, and good health habits.  You can be wealthy without being rich.  And, you can be rich without being wealthy.  Wealth is material possessions.  Being rich is a state of mind.  Being rich is being fruitful and having gratitude!

In order to become financially wealthy, you must first become mentally rich.  You have to go to work on yourself.  You have to learn the secrets of those who have achieved the level of success you desire.  You have to become a master of time management, a master of spiritual growth, and a master of of self.

In order to live the life you deserve, you must find your major definite purpose and then go to work to make it real for you.  Wealth will only come your way if you plan for it.  By planning to acquire wealth you must first develop a rich state of mind by watering your seeds of greatness that’s within the soil of your subconscious mind.

In our pursuit of wealth, what we are truly seeking is freedom and unlimited choices! 

So… in our pursuit of wealth the outcome is of least importance.  What’s most important is the person you have to become to acquire the wealth and lifestyle you want.  And, that takes persistence, dedication, commitment, discipline, willingness, and a positive mental attitude.  

Learn to develop a rich mindset and watch your life take on a whole new meaning.

Have you ever thought about doing Joint Ventures but never knew how to begin?

What is a Joint Venture? It’s when two or more companies come together to form a temporary partnership for one or more projects.

Let me explain something before you even begin.

Most people think you can just send out hundreds of emails to prospects and they’ll jump on your offer like white on rice.

IT JUST DOESN’T HAPPEN THAT WAY!

If this were so, everybody would be profiting big time with joint ventures.

You can’t just send out emails to people asking them to promote your product to their list or place an exit pop-up on their ‘Thank You’ page of their order form.

Smart business professionals will simply delete your message and continue on with their lives.

You have to build a relationship with them first!

Why?

Because they don’t know you. People want to do business with people they know, like and trust. Any smart business owner will not promote your product if they don’t know who you are and if your product is legitimate.

They don’t even know if your product or service will convert browsers into buyers.

They’re not going to risk ruining their reputation on some sorry product that will put a virus on their customers computer or something even worse.

What if you don’t ship your product?

What if you don’t deliver on your promise?

These are the type of questions that will be going through your prospects mind.
You have to build relationships first and then pitch your product for the joint venture later.

Building a relationship could take days, weeks, or even months.

Here are a few steps to jump start your JV campaign:

Step 1: Locate potential prospects and sign up for their newsletter to see if their customers are the same customers that will be interested in your product or service. It will be a waste of your time and your prospects if your product does not relate to your prospects target market. Do some research and sign up to their newsletter. This will be a great way to investigate your prospects customer database.

Visit www.Alexa.com and download their tool bar. For every page that you land on, the tool bar will give you that sites traffic rank and company information.

Step 2: After you’ve located potential prospects and signed up for their newsletter it’s time to call them. Yes that means picking up the telephone, pressing the keys, and talking to them verbally. Don’t send out emails. Overcome your fears and call them.

Be polite and make sure your not interrupting your prospects. Their time is important just like yours.

Ask then questions about their business and how you like the content of their website. Complement them on the great work they’ve done.

During your conversation you should be asking questions 99% of the time. You need to become the listener and never interrupt.

Why? First off it’s rude to interrupt and at this point, your prospect doesn’t know you and therefore doesn’t care about you or your business.

The goal is to build a rapport and get them talking about their business and their accomplishments. Everybody loves to talk about themselves when giving the opportunity. 🙂

Remember, people want to do business with people they know, like and trust.

During your conversation ask open end, emotional questions like;

“How did you get started in your line of work?”
“What sets you apart from your competitors?”

“What advice would you give future entrepreneurs?”

And the most important question;

“How can I tell if someone I know or meet is a good prospect for your business?”

This question is very important and you should ask it with great interest. You have just told your prospect that you care about them and the success of their business on the first call without looking for anything in return.

Asking questions like this and building a positive relationship with your prospect will result in direct business and tons of referrals for you in the future.

Step 3: After the conversation it’s time to follow up with an email or postage note. Mail the note the same day of the conversation. This note does not have to be long, in fact it should be about one sentence long.

If you use a postage note, I recommend you use a postcard (8 x 3.5 inches) with your picture and business contact info or notepad with the same contents and MAKE IT PERSONAL.

When writing your follow up postage note, use blue ink (studies show that blue ink is more effective than black ink or any other color). Your note should read;

“Hi Joe or Jane (Mr. or Mrs.),Thank you. It was a pleasure speaking with you over the phone. If I can ever refer business your way, I most certainly will.”

I suggest you place your postcard in a number 10 envelope hand addressed and hand stamped. Do not use a impersonal mailing label or postage meter. KEEP IT PERSONAL.

Follow up with your JV prospects and all other contacts on a consistent basis. Consistency separates the rookies from the pros. What category do in fall under?

Step 4: After you’ve built a relationship with them and it‘s the RIGHT TIME, pitch your joint venture offer. Offer them a commission of 50% or even 75%. You have to remember something. Once their customers buy your product, their customers now become your customers and you can up sell back end products to them forever… and keep 100% of the profits!

Be generous with the commission structure. They’ll appreciate it.

A good commission structure will also motivate them to promote your product or service.

Make sure you have a sales letter that converts. By this point, you should have tested your sales letter and have statistics to prove it.

If your sales letter does not convert, you risk the chance of losing your JV prospect forever and ruining you image by looking unprofessional.

I suggest that you try to set up at least 12 JV’s to really explode your sales and build future relationships with your prospects.

Once you’ve built a relationship with your prospects, you have a proven sales letter that converts, you deliver on your promise, and you offer your prospects a generous commission…. they’ll be eager to promote your product well into the future for many years to come.

This means more leads, more sales, and FREE ADVERTISING!

In the quest for human development, we need people in our lives that will allow positive personal growth.  This growth will transform the human experience and place us on a path of excellence.  What does this growth consist of and how do we find those who are competent enough to participate on this journey, this quest for personal value?

Well… there is only one word that I can think of and this word has a definition as long and wide as the universe itself.  That word is LOVE.  I’m not going to try and define love for you.  You are created uniquely and the definition and meaning of this word will be different for many people.  Instead, I’m going to give you examples of what love looks like.  We recognize love through the actions of those around us.

It is not enough to only tell your mother, spouse, or friend… “I love you.”  This is not acceptable as the sounds of those words become meaningless if positive action is not behind them.  It takes more than that!  It takes commitment, action, and awareness of this divine emotion.

So… what is love and what does it look like?

Love is when you come home from a long days work.  You approach your front door and begin to enter your safe haven.  Your children run up to you with a smile that is as bright as the sun and with their arms extended as they say to you… “Welcome home daddy/mommy.”

Love is when you are in the womb of your mother and as she is experiencing the greatest pain that any human being can bare, she begins to push and push and push so that you, a beautiful child of God, can be born.

Love is when you are looking and feeling your worst and your spouse approaches you and says… “You look beautiful today.”

Love is when a man is brought into court on unjust charges and is forced to carry his cross while he marches towards his crucifixion just so that you may have life.

Love is when the sun is bright outside but your day is dark.  Depression has crept into the palace of your being.  Your spouse approaches you with healing words and says… “I’m here for you, we’ll get through this day together.”

The above are just some prime example of what love looks like.  Look at your life and your relationships.  Ask yourself… “What am I doing to show the people I care about the most that I truly love and appreciate them?”  This is a very important question to ask.  Don’t be so concerned about what these folks are doing for you.  In order to receive the kindness, respect, and love from others– you must first GIVE kindness, respect, and love to others!  

Giving is one of life’s basic fundamentals.  We know that giving starts the receiving process.  However, we sometimes don’t understand how this process works.  Learn to give!  Learn to do for others that which you would like done to you. 

In order to love others and truly show them by doing, you must first have love for self! 

 Have you ever wondered why some people seem to walk with every step in a loving and peaceful manner? These folks have manifested positive attitudes that allows them to become enlightened and look within themselves for the answers to their personal problems and the problems that face humanity.

How can you become an enlightened person if you don’t have attitudes that reflect High Consciousness and the wisdom of this Divine Experience? First off, let me explain what enlightenment means to me. Enlightenment is not a final destination. Being enlightened is practicing love and living with truth, knowledge of self, and a deep level of understanding.

This practice will then bring peace to your life, and that’s what your higher self is constantly seeking. You begin to find stillness within yourself, connecting with your Creator and becoming One. I believe in order for this to happen, we must cultivate certain attitudes that allows this transformation to take place. Below I’ve listed 5 attitudes for manifesting enlightenment. These attitudes are presented to you in the form of positive affirmations.

Attitude One: I AM Created Out of the Image and Likeness of the Most High

By expressing this attitude, you are realizing that God is within you and not outside of you. You are saying that, “Who I am is unique and I’m worth more that what I’ve been taught to believe.” You are no less valuable than anyone else, no matter your race, religion, or social class.

You were with God before the beginning of time. You chose your parents as the pipeline for the crossover into this physical world. Humans can’t create spirits. We can only reproduce humans in a physical form. Our spirits are created by God and we are reflections of this Divine Wisdom.

Attitude Two: I AM Not Going to Water the Seeds of Destruction Within Me

This is an attitude that says, “I am not a victim.” If sickness, disability, or even death of a loved one comes your way take full responsibility for what you’ve attracted into your life. You may not understand why you’ve gotten sick or why your loved one has just passed away.

If you choose to water the seeds within your evil garden and manifest your satanic nature, you’ll bring to life the seeds of guilt, fear, depression, and other forms of emotions that are not God like. As soon as you accept your current condition and take full responsibility for it, you’ll then have the ability to find Oneness with the Almighty who has the ability to heal you from your condition.

Attitude Three: I AM Fully Responsible for My Actions and Behaviors

You are where you’re at in life because of the decisions you choose to make. If you want a better life physically, spiritually, financially, or emotionally then you must take full responsibility for your life .

Stop blaming others for your misfortunes. You’ve created your life, now learn to fix it by first taking responsibility for it. Once you do this, you’ll be able to connect with the Most High God. This will give you the power to destroy anything that causes you pain and suffering no matter the situation.

Attitude Four: I AM Mastering Self Acceptance without Regrets

This attitude says that you fully accept yourself without any regrets. This attitude also says, “I look at my physical structure and I understand that this body is nothing more than the shelter that houses the spirit of God.” You must learn to accept yourself without any regrets and complaints. Regretting or complaining about who you are is a form of self sabotage. It does not matter what color you are or how much you weigh. This means nothing in the eyes of God.

When the time comes for you to die, your physical body will go back to its original form by reverting back to dust or dirt, but YOU will never die. Your spirit will live on as long as you trust in the very source that has given you life. Whenever you feel unworthy and you’re regretting and complaining about who you are, you start to block the prosperity and abundance that the Most high God has in store for you.

Attitude Five: I AM Living My Life in Full Harmony

This attitude says, “I fully understand the importance of living life with harmony. In order for me to have harmony in my life, my thoughts, emotions, and actions have to reflect each other.” You have harmony by living life with principled centered values and doing something every day that mirrors those values.

If you are thinking one way, and you feel this way, and you are acting in another way, your Harmonious Life Cycle is off. When your life is in congruency, then you feel worthy to receive what you deserve… abundance, inner peace, prosperity, and happiness.

The above are 5 attitudes that I believe we must practice if we want to become enlightened spiritual beings and receive the rewards for feeling worthy. The quicker you master the 5 attitudes and become worthy, the quicker you’ll realize that you are a direct reflection of a Higher Energy source.

I hope and pray that you take this information into account by learning to live life by manifesting an enlightened mind.

 

Are you aware that your spirit and soul contains a garden so reflective, that if sown properly it will grow beautifully for you? Are you also aware that your inner self holds a separate garden where life can’t grow due to unfertile soil? Destruction can only grow here because the soil has no value.

Which seeds do you choose to water, nurture, and manifest?

The two separate gardens that I’ve described above are what I call your;

(1.) Divine Garden or God Nature

(2.) Evil Garden or Satanic Nature

By watering and nurturing your Divine Garden, you are manifesting the seeds of greatness that allows you to transform human life into that which was ordained for you by the Most High God.

I’m not talking about religion and it doesn’t matter what religion you are. Not to say religion does not work. I believe religion can only work if you practice it properly with an open mind and a re-filled heart. But the core meaning of the word religion is… “in search of.” If you are in search of something then you must be lost, like a stray dog who can’t find it’s way home.

How can you be lost when you’re here breathing in the present moment?

You are not lost. You’ve just been misled! The reason why I say misled is because you have a choice to make a positive change, at any second, to live your life to serve and to receive by deserving.

This is called the miracle of labor!

In order for this transformation to properly occur, you must have the willingness to change and become aware of your actions. You have to find a calm and warm place within and find oneness with your Creator. Once you’ve reached this level of consciousness, you’ll start to see life through your spiritual eye and not through the eyes of your physical flesh.

Let’s break down these two gardens as I explain the importance of your god nature.

Divine Garden:

The seeds of greatness within your Divine Garden include honesty, integrity, love, hope, faith, happiness, bliss, joy, gratitude, responsibility, being dependable, staying optimistic, having compassion, being disciplined, being enthusiastic, and staying focused. I think you get the picture.

These seeds come in the form of our emotions and it’s our emotions alone that shape our attitude and outlook on life. Once your attitude has been shaped, we manifest what we’re thinking and feeling through the works of our hands and the spoken word.

If you choose to water the seeds of greatness, then you’ll do the work of the righteous and develop a loving speech for human empowerment. Prosperity and purpose will blow your way like the pleasant smell of Spring captured within the winds of abundance.

By nurturing your Divine Garden, you will begin to raise the awareness of your physical, mental, and spiritual self. These are the three elements of personal development. You will obtain the true knowledge of God, realizing that having the knowledge of God is having the knowledge of Self. And you can’t have one without the other! By deeply understanding that God and Self are interchangeable, you’ll inherit a high level of consciousness with Divine insight.

Evil Garden:

Because you were born into sin and shaped in iniquity, you also have an evil garden or satanic nature. The seeds that lie within this garden include fear, guilt, stress, anxiety, depression, worry, doubt, ignorance, and any other seed of emotions that causes us to self destruct, leaving us alone in the dark feeling non-loved.

As stated above, since our emotions shape our attitude, if we CHOOSE to water the seeds of disaster we’ll manifest these ill emotions and present our actions to both the physical and spiritual world. Causing human suffering in the form of violence, envy, poverty, famine, lust, racism, war, and hatred. You’ll become like a leach sucking the life blood out of the human family. You have no love for others because you have no love for self. You’ve fell into the hands of evil by your own actions and decision making.

If I could leave you with one thought it would be to watch what goes into your mind. You have to become conscious of the sounds, images, and words that you deposit into your mental bank account of awareness. Begin to water the seeds of excellence and bare witness to the beautiful vegetation within your Divine Garden!
