Wealthiest Person On This Forum...

Hello all,

I just got back from a wonderful spiritual retreat
and learned a lot.

I actually got to spend some time with many
Buddhist monks and nuns and listen to a lot
of their lessons.

At 24 years old I am very fortunate to be able to
do things such as this, and I owe it all to online
business!!

I just wanted to share some thoughts with you all...

A great thing that we kept coming back to was
merit...

Do you have merit?

They explained merit as your universal bank account.

When you do something virtuous, you receive merit
points or 'money'. This as we know is directly related to karma.

I am sure most mind warriors know about karma and I
am sure some follow it but I am positive that some
DO NOT!

Selling people some BS that you know does not work
takes away from your merit points, similar to deducting
from your universal bank account - sort of like a fine.

On the other hand, offering people good advice to
genuinely help them adds 'money' to your universal
bank account.

Which area do most warriors fall into?

Also another point they mentioned is that when somebody
else does something good and we are sincerely happy for
them, we get merit for that also.

When you see somebody doing good, don't try to rain on
their WSO or try to sabotage their success, sincerely
congratulate them and turn their success and happiness
into your own!

So with these points in mind, I believe it will be easier
to go about our daily lives and build our inner wealth while
doing business online and sharing thoughts in communities
like this.

The key points are to be genuine and sincere.

I just thought that this would help many mind warriors out
in trying to relieve our minds from suffering and imperfections.

Jealousy, anger, hate, greed, selfishness and all other types of
emotions and feelings are just a manifestation of our minds
suffering.

So those who genuinely don't feel those emotions have
freed themselves from the mental prison that we all live
in - and are truly the wealthiest people on this forum.

Just remember, you can't take any of it with you - EXCEPT
your inner wealth! (So I believe anyways)

I am not there yet but am aware of these imperfections
and sufferings and try to build my 'universal bank account'
daily and wanted to share this very simple idea with you.

So next time something great happens to you, just
know that you accrued some 'money' in your universal bank
account and just paid the universe for that!

On the other hand, when something does not go your way,
go back and think about how you might have deducted some
points from the account and try to gain them back daily!

Let this be a lesson to us all (and myself) - come together
and let's build our inner wealth and the external wealth that
we all yearn for will be following right behind!! It is a law!!

Peace,

-Greg

      My retreat was taken at the Kadampa Buddhist
      meditation center in Glen Spey, NY.

      It is a great place, I would recommend you all go.

      I may actually put together a marketing mastermind
      event up there, if anyone would be interested.

    I live my life in this way.

    I am a best selling Spiritual and Metaphysics author as well as doing IM for 12 years, but my life focus is helping others in any way they need help out of Service.

    Because my weekly newsletter is read by hundreds of thousands I get thousands of emails per week, many asking for help in life situations, some even suicidal, and it is to these my time is dedicated before IM.

    I could make vastly more in IM is I focused on IM, but our greatest investment in time, Energy and Love is Service to Spirit of which we are One.

    Money is meaningless by comparison.

      This is a beautiful thing and for that my friend, you
      are a very wealthy person.

      Love and compassion for others is how we should focus
      our time and everything else that the material world
      brings shal follow behind.

      I am glad you chimed in here, I wish you the best of
      luck in both IM and your teachings and want to sincerely
      thank you for what you do, it is appreciated!

      Keep up the hard work and we will help rid our people
      from mental sufferings.

        Thank you Greg.

        Believe me, when I receive messages from people who I have been able to help, even turn their life around, money, by comparison, seems meaningless.

        I make a lot of money in IM, but helping just one person means more to me.

        and actually, the more we help others, the more we help ourselves, although that should never be a motive.

        Thanks again - I can see you you live your life in the highest sense.

          "The more we help others, the more we help ourselves"

          I find that to be very true, because most of the time I find
          what I teach is the very lessons that I need to be learning
          more about myself.

          Life is a non stop lesson, every day we grow wiser, everyday we
          are much more advanced than the last.

          That is why patience is so important.

          Instead of getting angry or jealous, just be patient and in minutes
          you will gain wisdom and see why those same thoughts that got you
          angry or jealous are irrelevant.

          Start living like you can die today and your life surely will change
          for the better.

            Greg,

            What you said here is so true. My business partner and I took a day in the city of Boston and as we went about our work that day made it a point to go out of our way to just do something to help someone every chance we got. That's all we do now between appointments and it's come back to us many times over. And frankly it just feels good.

              John,
              That is fantastic ... P.S. I love Boston - I am from Connecticut
              and frequent Boston. The Intercontinental Boston is like an
              escape for me!

              That is really what it is about - helping others.

              That is very inspiring and refreshing that you were out there
              helping others every chance you get and in doing that you
              will soon notice that other people are great once you give them
              a chance.

              I always think, that guy is standoffish, or that lady looks mean -
              and that all goes away once you give them a warm smile or say
              hello, you find out that people are innately good and our sufferings
              bring out the bad in us.

              Let this be a lesson to all ... If you want to brighten up your day,
              simply help another person or even give them a nice smile, it will
              brighten up both of your days.

      Its all a figment of your imagination, think of your
      office as a beautiful place and it will instantly
      become that.

      Keep up the hard work and make a goal to get to
      one of these retreats and work towards that.

      It will give your subconscious a stronger goal and your
      'why' will be very strong and focused and you will soon
      be there, I promise!

    I agree Sven and i would like to add more to that on what that right thing should be,your daily effort should be a part of a big plan leading to your ultimate objectives.If you are working damn hard just to make the both ends meet then you may not heap the riches unless if you work according to a plan.

      If I take the ratio between the number of posts I have made and the number of times I have been thanked, it would probably be one parameter for measuring how wealthy I am .. But it is not the only parameter as many people help through PMs, IMs and mails.. But could be one measuring parameter.


      Well looking at my stat, I ain't wealthy yet

        Inner wealth is not something that somebody
        else can give you...

        As long as you are adding value to the lives of others,
        and truly giving, your universal bank account is filling up,
        no matter if others acknowledge it or not!

        Just keep giving and you will live a happy existence
        and ultimately be fulfilled, even if not 1 person in the
        world acknowledges you!

        Keep up the good work!

    I believe every action that you make in your business, however small it is, will attract the value you put into it back to you.

    So the more value you give to people, you will see that come back to you.

    Check out Frank Kern as a great example. He gives away so much free information in his blogs and to his list that just by the law of probabiity, people who couldnt afford to buy his stuff first time round will make so much money with his free stuff that they will be compelled to buy his more expensive stuff later on.

    Joe Vitale - spiritual marketing. Sums all that up perfectly. Go get the ebook, its f.r.e.e!

    I've heard from a couple of friends who went on a spiritual retreat and for most, it's been a life changing experience for them. Their retreat was meditation and during this time, you do not speak to anybody at all but to focus on yourself to achieve 'stillness' in your state of mind.

    Was your retreat similar to this? Could you elaborate more on your retreat please?

      There were people there that weren't speaking, not me though. I was really just kickin back and taking it all in with a big smile.

      This was about a year ago and I haven't been back, been too busy with life. I am looking forward to going back though, and I would recommend it to all. It cost me about $30 per day including room and meals and I got to meet some fascinating people.

      I've never been somewhere where people don't judge and accept you for what you are, you! It was a really awesome way of life, they believe that you could have been one of their parents in a prior life and that is one of the tools they use to treat people so well and non judgmental.

      If you can't get away or afford to leave - just take a 1 hour trip on the internet tonight. Look up buddhist monks on youtube and sit there and visualize and meditate, it will charge your day!

    Awesome post Greg. If more people were genuinely happy, when others succeed instead of trying to tear them down we would be much happier and better off as a society. To many people these days, have a negative and downright nasty attitude towards others who become successful.

    Great post Greg! I think there have definitely been times in my life when I've had a fairly healthy universal bank account, but something always happens to piss me off and I end up spending it all in a few days.
