Hi fellow warrior.

When I first came across this video, I thought it was very controversial and very intriguing at the same time.





Peace,

    Abraham does not say take no action..this is the main mistranslation .

    what is being said is first focus then take the actions that are inspired from that focused state .

    in essence the message is there is a lot of wasted action.. if you first take action.. and wait until somewhere down the road to focus

      I agree, Odahh.

      In my experience in applying Abraham's teachings is that as long as I focus on feeling good, the action comes naturally. It's not hard. IT'S VERY EASY.

      I agree with you, Odahh. Abraham does not mean, do not take any action. It actually is called 'non-action' or wu-wei as the Chinese called it when Zen was Ch'en. It is the ability to allow things to happen without your mind discriminating against reality and allows you to ultimately act with clarity. You are not adding your personal feelings or emotions to enter into your efforts. It is on par with what Dr. Mihály Csíkszentmihályi (pronounced chick-sent-me-high) studied as a psychologist and named it Flow.

        i don't listen to abraham that much any more.. mainly because the changes to you tubes and the play lists .. mean i only end up hearing the same ones over and over ..

        one of the things that gets mention is that we actually sleep to much ..if we took more inspired action rather than wearing ourselves out working to work. and expending a lot of excess effort for small rewards .. we would only need very little sleep ..

        we are to trained by 7 thousand years of agriculture and even worse a hundred years of factory work .. to segment and scedual our time .. if we ate when we are hungry ..and ate what tasted good and makes us feel good.. then we sleep when we are tire..wake up when our bodies tell us and work when we are most productive .. our lives would be so much more rewarding ..

        the interesting thing is when we do the thing we are inspired to do and the thing we are most productive at ..it acctually looks like very hard work to everyone else

          Definitely Odahh. People think many people who can work for long hours work hard but in reality, they don't feel like it's work. It's play for them because they ENJOY it.

    my problem is i am very bad at just thinking my way to feeling good ..

    my feeling state is highly dependent on my physiology . so i have been paying a lot more attention to what i eat and how i feel after it .also what i crave.. i have always had a lot of trouble sleeping at night ..and in the last 6 month ..my intuition has been telling me to eat more rice..

    a few weeks ago i bought a 10$ rice cooker and sense i have been using it or days when i cook rice .. i sleep very well at night.. if i don't eat much.. i don't sleep well ..

    I am cutting as muc packaged food out of my diet as possible.. even learning to make my own pasta by hand and soon tomatoe sauce .. i just started putting together my own salad dressing..

    the effect is so much better.. the preservatives and flavorings in packaged food .. all have long term detrimental effects on health .. while almost every herb and spice you can add to food.. even certain kinds of slat in the proper amounts.. has a benifit to health,,even if it is just in the time after it ..

    It is easy to eat better than someone who is very rich .. if you learn to cook and grow your own food..

    there is a lot we can do for ourselves now.. that most people believe you have to wait until you get rich to do .. so the amount of money people think they need is an artificial barrier to having what they want ..

      Well, if you want a solution for that... try programming your mind to feel good regardless of your physiology.

      Abraham said that physical sensations are separate from emotions. If you can just focus yourself on positive emotions (which takes a little bit of practice) by remembering something or thinking of neutral or positive thoughts, you will realize that your physical sensations have nothing to do with how you want to feel.

      Yeah, that's very true in many cases... seriously. Other people want to become a millionaire because of the lifestyle and freedom when they can achieve those with just $50,000 a month after tax.

          Yeah man... Coconuts are delicious! We actually have a coconut plantation here in Ormoc City, Leyte.

          Delicious juice these coconuts have! But as a famous song about coconuts here in the Philippines says, "If you eat too much, you get very fat." lol

    Taking mindless actions will not produce any significant result. Many a times when you are detached from the results things just happen.

    A balance of taking action and feeling good is key. When it comes to taking action, I think its important to learn what the people who have achieved what you want to achieve are doing. This is where mentorship comes in.

    I know people who feel good, generally very happy people and have their own businesses, but they are not doing well. I also know people who are generally miserable/sad but have a good income because they do what works.

    The difference isn't simply feeling good, but taking action that attracts money. I strive for a balance.

      They have subconscious resistance to the subject of money. They keep focusing on their lack of money whether they tell us or not because we really don't know what they're actually thinking.

      A person can seem happy to outsiders but deep inside they're negative. If they can just focus on positive thoughts and feel good for a certain period of time (like at least 6 months), they will get results.

      Uber optimism and self-confidence is one of the traits of successful people whether they are aware of it or not.


      The people who we think are negative but are successful financially got positive subconscious beliefs about money.

      Positive and effective actions comes from being aligned with your internal energy. Alignment with mental energy comes from focusing on the positive no matter how hard it is at first.

      When you feel good and really positive, you will be able to take action because you can't help it. That's better than forcing ourselves initially then procrastinating in the long-run.

        So they could be generally unhappy, but have positive beliefs and feelings about money and finances?

          Yep. I know a lot of people like that. They seem to be pessimistic but they have positive beliefs about their ability to succeed. They would say, "Just do it, man."

          It's all in the subconscious my friend which according to Dr. Bruce Lipton (a former professor of medicine at Stanford University) controls 95% of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

    balanced intake is always important.. to much of a good thing quickly becomes a bad thing. ..long term health is based off of the cumulative effect of many healthy choices ..something that annoys me about the health crowd.. is it seems every food now a days that does not come in a box ..has to be called a super food..blah

    the difference between people who fail.. or live in missery .. and people who succeed .. or live happy weather or not they are living in abundance or lack ..you can stop at feeling good if you have just enough to eat and a roof over your head.. as long as the people around you are in similar situations .

    Most of the people who attend abraham functions already have a lot of stuff .. but they are making them selves miserable with thoughts of what they don't have..

      Yeah and what we focus on, expands. I wouldn't say most though, I would say many. There are also many people who went from struggling to financial abundance by using Abe's processes.

      It's important to note that you should always have fun with any self-improvement tool you use. If it feels like it's tearing you apart, you should back off from it a little bit. Then when you feel inspired, use it again. That's such a tremendous leverage.

  • Great video. For me, any time spent invested in feeling good is very easy. It is like driving a car with my feet off the break as opposed to on the break.

    I have also found that if I work in 25 minute blocks, I can keep my action focused, which also aids me in feeling better about myself.

      Yeah, I definitely agree Justin. Aligning your energy (taking the time and discipline to feel good) first gives you a tremendous leverage when taking physical action.

      It just flows and the plan, to-do lists, right action will just come up. NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN FEELING GOOD. It's aligning yourself with your INNER POWER. More and more people in this world are realizing this. You can just tap into inspiration at will with practice.

      Focused action rather than FORCED action is FAR more effective. The latter couldn't even compare.

      It's GOOD to FEEL GOOD. I think it helps in releasing endorphins for a healthy mind and body (not sure but I do believe feeling good for a consistent period of time releases certain chemicals in the brain to help it stay fit).

    I totally disagree with creating/making money without action.

    First, you have to do something for you to earn money. Even beggars make money by begging, they do something and it's begging.

      Did you watch the video? If anyone watches the video, they would know that you still have to take action (mentally or physically). But they have to take INSPIRED physical action which is a great leverage (a big bang for your buck).

      Of course you have to. Like setting goals, visualizing, feeling good, reprogramming your subconscious mind with meditation, hypnosis, EFT, etc. and taking the right action at the right time.

      Yup but the action they usually offer is from the mindset of scarcity that's why they stay begging instead of creating their own economy.

    What I have gotten from the teaching of Abraham, is that feeling good puts you in a state of allowing, but that good feeling leads you to take inspired action and that's the key.
    Inspired actions feels good while you are acting and since you are in a allowing state you will create better results.
    It's pretty much the same as a flow state.
