Rich Is Outside The Box
People are always telling me, "I'm
And most of the time, my response is,
"yeah, sure". What they mean is, "I don't have enough money to live the way I
want to live, but I am rich in other ways, and I don't worry about becoming rich
because rich is outside the box."
And, what I mean when I say, "yeah
sure" is, you are conning yourself into believing that it's okay not to have
money by pretending not to want it.
So What Do I Mean By "Rich"?
I say you're rich if you have everything you need to make
your life whole and complete. And you are poor if there is something you want
from life that you don't have, whether that want be for love, money, self-worth
or self-respect. If you are poor in anyway, I say you are poor, because rich is
outside the box.
So What Do I Mean By "The Box"?
I'm calling the reality you and I have created for
ourselves, "the box". It's a box, NOT A CAGE,
because from a cage you can see through the bars to the outside.
But if you're in a box, you can't see anything outside
the box. Your reality is totally contained
within that box you call your point of view about life.
When I was a kid, I grew up in a box
called "nobody loves me". That was my reality, but don't feel sorry for me,
because it simply was not true. The love was there, I just couldn't accept it.
Love did not fit into the box I had created for myself. Back then, when someone
tried to hug me, I pushed them away because a loving hug did not fit into my
Although it wasn't true that nobody
loved me, it might as well have been true, because I lived my life from that
point of view for most of my earlier years. I came out of that box to create a
bigger box called, "I don't need anyone". I spent almost 40 years proving
to myself and the world that I did not need anyone. Then one day, someone blew a
hole in that box and I saw that I had been living a lie for all of those 40
years. What a waste!
What I want you to see from this
example is that the poverty of love I had created for myself (the box) was all a
figment of my imagination. It was real because I made it real. Now, take that
example and apply it to any condition of lack that you find in your life. Your
condition of lack is no more real than mine. Poverty is always a state of mind
(a box), not a financial condition. If poverty
is in the box, rich is outside the box.
In fact, no matter what problem you
have in life, I can assure you that the solution to that problem is outside the
box. If it weren't, you would have solved it already.
To solve your problem you need only create a new box
that includes the solution to your problem.
You can create a new an bigger box (one
that includes rich) anytime you are willing to step outside your comfort zone.
That's what your box is: the place where you
hide and feel safe. Your ego's job in life is
to keep you in that box. In fact, YOUR EGO'S CONCEPT OF REALITY IS YOUR BOX.
Your life can only begin to work to
solve all your problems when you give up the security you seem to think is in
the box. Truth is, real security is outside the
box. Fear of the unknown will keep you in
the box and love of life will take you out of it. Every time you experience
fear when you think about what's outside the box, just remember that fear is the
ego's tool to keep you in the box.
I want you to know that, no matter
what your problem, the solution is always outside the box.
I hope I've blown a hole in your box. Your box is merely
your perception of reality made real. You have the power to rethink your
perception and change your reality.
Chapter 4 - Money And You
from my book
"So, Why Aren't You Rich?" -
The Prosperity Secret
The prosperity secret of the rich is so obvious that
most people refuse to seriously consider it. Are you ready for this?
If you want to be rich, take the first step
in that direction: CHOOSE TO BE RICH.
Changing the way you think changes who you are, and
changing who you are changes what you expect from life. Notice that you get from
life what you expect.
Chapter 6 - How To Know What You
from my book
"Being The Solution" -
The solution will be outside the box
Any decision requiring a new BEING choice is an
outside the box decision. Therefore, the solution to your most serious
problems will always be found outside the box. In other word, if who you
were BEING caused the problem, then a change in who you are BEING will
solve the problem.
The problem's effect always shows up inside
the problem's solution will ALWAYS BE
outside the box.

When ego is in charge
When ego is in charge, you will live your life
in the survival mode, mostly reactive or inactive, dormant and stagnant.
As your ego, your motivation in life is fear, self-doubt and worry.
Because all your decisions come out of fear and worry, they are reactive
As Spirit, you will be enthusiastic, joyful and
happy. Your motivation will be a powerful desire for further growth in
consciousness. All your decisions will be proactive, exciting and out of
the box, made with a winner's attitude as you anticipate the thrill of
your next daring adventure.
