“Don’t get me wrong. I am by no means saying that you can’t be both wealthy and happy. But whether you have a seven-figure trust fund or a pile of unpaid bills on your kitchen table, the path to freedom requires that you focus more on your inner life than on your outer financial circumstances.”
~ Brent Kessel ~

It's Not About The Money by Brent KesselFrom Amazon:

Kessel, founder of two top wealth-management firms, has the inside scoop on the higher wisdom of personal finances, and he wants to share it with you. Through extensive experience as a financial advisor and spiritual seeker, Kessel has discovered that people need to understand their core financial story in order to make meaningful changes.

Beautiful.

Peaceful.

And my reminder that fear is sometimes an involuntary response that comes out of nowhere.

There is comfort in familiarity.

When we try to do things that are new the unfamiliar can be very uncomfortable.

The fear response isn’t always right.  Sometimes we can be terrified of things that are perfectly normal in their own context.  Until we take the time to become familiar it can be scary.  Even if it is something that we desire.

I have a lot of processing to do.  And there is more to this story to be sure.  I’m getting settled back in at home after my time traveling and sailing.  I’ve been moving my office upstairs to make room for my older daughter’s return from college and spending time in her glowing presence.  I’ve had some technical issues today on top of the household upheaval, but I didn’t want to wait another minute to tell you that I am here.  I am human and learning and I want to share it with you.

It’s good to remember that fear isn’t always about choice.  Sometimes we are hijacked by our body’s hormonal reactions to unfamiliar stimulus.When looking at others that are reacting out of fear I hope I remember that they may not be consciously choosing that reaction.

For myself, I choose to go forward.  The life and the skills that I desire may be unfamiliar and frightening.  I could shrink back and hide, but that won’t get me where I want to go.  Here comes that heroes forest again.  We enter where it is darkest.  I can do this.

Thank you for your gracious ear.

 The Essential Ken Wilber

The Essential Ken WilberFrom Amazon:
Ever since the publication of his first book, The Spectrum of Consciousness, written when he was twenty-three, Ken Wilber has been identified as the most comprehensive philosophical thinker of our times. This introductory sampler, designed to acquaint newcomers with his work, contains brief passages from his most popular books, ranging over a variety of topics, including levels of consciousness, mystical experience, meditation practice, death, the perennial philosophy, and Wilber’s integral approach to reality, integrating matter, body, mind, soul, and spirit. Here is Wilber’s writing at its most reader-friendly, discussing essential ideas of the world’s great psychological, philosophical, and spiritual traditions in language that is lucid, engaging, and inspirational.

My Thoughts

S.L.Hurlock

“I looked, and looked, and this I came to see: 
That what I thought was you and you, 
Was really me and me.”
~ Ken Wilber ~

Of all the quotes from Ken Wilber lingering on the internet, this is the only one I found that made me think perhaps he was channeling Dr. Seuss.

There are so many thoughts that come from Ken Wilber’s work I’m finding it hard to write about.  I think the most important thing that I’ve gleaned from all this is that we cannot take an experience that has formed us and exclude it from who we are now.  Whatever we have been, done, or experienced – good or bad – is part of who we are.  We don’t have to (and probably shouldn’t) dwell on them, but we shouldn’t run from them either.

Who are you now?

Now?

Now?

Now?

Every individual moment is unique and complete.

I come back to the place of total compassionate forgiveness.  All of the things that I have done in my life that I wish I hadn’t?  That slate is wiped clean.  I give myself a hug and reassurance that the Universe doesn’t cling to what I did a moment ago.  It is transformed by every moment and moves into something new and as infinitely wondrous as it was before that moment.  It doesn’t revisit that moment, judge it, or try to change it.  It just absorbs exactly what comes and grows on.

Thank you for your gracious ear.

My Thoughts

S.L.HurlockIn principle the great religions of the world
do not differ as much as they appear to.
~ Ernest Shurtleff Holmes ~

When I was five years old I told my mother that I thought all the religions were worshiping the same God, and that “He” didn’t care what you called him.  You could call “Him” Bob and “He” would be okay with that.  Over a lifetime I’ve been repeatedly blessed by exposure to others that believe the same.  Regardless the name you give the divine – it is the same energy – and you are not separate from it.  You are part of Bob.  You don’t have to believe that for it to be true.

Understanding that we are all one with each other connected by the divine force of the Universe some call God – this is where success if found according to Ernest Holmes.  Once we realize that our unique expression of divine energy is a gift to the world and understand the value in our unique selves – we achieve success in that moment.

You are already enough.  You are already a success.  You are an amazing beautiful miracle of creation.  You don’t have to believe that for it to be true.

Thank you for your gracious ear.

My Thoughts

S.L.HurlockRecently the concept of prosperity was defined in my daily team meeting as a combination of health, wealth, and happiness.  So when Brian Johnson answered the question “why be happy?” this morning, “because it leads to increased health and wealth” it put a real smile on my face.  Nowhere did he use the word prosperity, but understanding the goal as a single concept, well, I can’t help buy hear Spock in my head, “Live long and prosper.”

This video is a super quick look at an awesome book filled with really effective steps to increase our happiness, and why these steps work.  I’ve listened to the audio for this complete note from Brian Johnson’s collection more times than I can count – any time I need a reminder.  And over the years since I began listening I’ve implemented most of the 12 recommended happiness activities with great success in my life.

If you enjoy the video I highly recommend visiting Entheos and getting the full collection of PhilosophersNotes as well as purchasing The How of Happiness.

Come on get happy.  Can you hear it?  Lol.

Thank you for your gracious ear.
