“Fulfillment occurs when you conquer your inner world; fulfillment does not occur when you conquer your outer world.”

In modern times, while we appear to have greater material wealth than in the past, these kinds of riches do not guarantee a greater sense of happiness, security, and fulfillment. You only need to look at the rate of suicide, substance abuse, and a myriad of forms of self-destructive behavior to understand that material wealth is not directly associated with spiritual wealth. This is not a promotion for Money is Bad – that is not my intention, rather, the love of material goods at the expense of your spirituality is the issue.

Does history repeat itself? 

Even though we may face these tragedies in our world, humankind appears to be on a similar path which we witness from almost a century ago. In the 1920’s, eight of the richest financiers in the USA controlled a greater share of the countries’ money than the government.

Wealth can lead you down two paths 

This powerful and wealthy group consisted of a Who’s Who from the time including presidents of banks, securities firms, and Wall Street as well as the President’s Cabinet member. While they were wealthy in the early part of the 20th century, within a mere two decades, these public figures suffered greatly: Leo Fraser committed suicide; Arthur Cutton died penniless; Charles Schwab died bankrupt; Jesse Livermore killed himself, Howard Hopson went insane; Richard Whitney a prisoner in Sing Sing Penitentiary, Ivar Krueger died a suicide; and Albert Fall earned early release from prison to die at home. In spite of their tremendous wealth, these men died either by than own hand or insolvent. While they clearly understood how to accumulate wealth, they did not understand how to live fulfilled.

Negativity manifests from disharmony

When we only focus upon material wealth…the demons of self-importance, self-indulgence, self-deprecation, and self-destruction can accompany us along the way. These negative thoughts can then result in disharmony and negative vibrations which do us physical as well as spiritual harm.

Positive vibrations manifest harmony

On the other hand, when you pursue loftier goals first, you are filled with self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-love which results in positive vibrations that support wellness in your physical and spiritual realms.

Conquer your spiritual world for true happiness and fulfillment

Conquering your physical world does not and will not provide the balance in your life which leads to lasting and joyous fulfillment. Conquering your spiritual world does and will provide the true balance in life which leads to lasting and joyous fulfillment.

“True happiness manifests from negotiation with your Self; true happiness does not manifest from competition with others.”

The new mentality 

The new mentality appears to be one where a person must win at all costs and without any regard for ethics or the wrongdoings to humankind or the environment. The media plays this one up where you are Number 1 when you beat the competition down and stand like a triumphant gladiator over a bloodied opponent in the Roman Coliseum. However, this selfish; ME at all cost attitude, can only produce ephemeral happiness and not true happiness which is sustained over a person’s lifetime.

A person can live their life through negotiation or competition: the former being in a positive state of vibration while the latter in a negative state of vibration. In a competitive mindset, a person always must outdo their colleagues, their neighbors, their own family members. The act of beating another person is tied to and reflected by the winner’s perception of self-worth: they rationalize if I can own bigger, costlier, and rarer objects than you, then I am worth more to my Self and worth more than your Self.

Your self-esteem can be battered or bolstered  

So, when you discover that a friend or colleague has a smaller house, your esteem soars but when you find a friend or colleague with a bigger house your self-esteem takes a dive. And that goes for the model of your car, your watch, your vacations, and any of your earthly possessions. When you base your life and your self-worth upon material goods, you’ll never have the biggest, best, or brightest toy.

Negotiation manifests a higher sense of awareness 

True happiness comes when you are constantly in negotiation with your Self. Negotiation focuses upon the awareness of your thoughts, words, and actions at the very moment. As you monitor your thoughts, words, and actions along the Continuum of Awareness, you are striving to be the best you can and the best for humankind. You negotiate your current state of mind to be in a higher state of awareness.

Set aside your ego to attain your goals 

You set aside your ego to attain your goals with your life’s journey while encapsulating faith, gratitude, compassion, and ethics. You fully understand that your results occur within cosmic timelessness. You place your faith and belief in the Source to align all the circumstances, persons, and objects that are required to achieve your goal and ultimately your happiness.

How to create positive energy

Your thoughts create the flow of positive energy which effortlessly manifests goals for you, hence, no worry, no fear, no envy, no jealousy, no competition.

Material possessions are temporary, your soul is permanent 

In the end, no matter how many material possessions you accumulate in your life, you will not have a minute longer on Earth, you will not be better than anyone else, and you will not have greater happiness. The noted French philosopher Voltaire wrote ‘Man is free at the moment he wishes to be.’ You can instantly achieve the dizzying heights of an eagle and be free of negative thoughts and negative vibrations when you make the decision to be in constant negotiation with your Self and not to be in constant competition with others.
