"The man who holds steadily in mind, the consciousness of his union with divinity, cannot think meanly of himself or of his value as a factor in performing the great works of the world. He who feels himself inseparably linked to the great cause of creation is not likely to drift very far from that divine harmony that gives power." -Orison Swett Marden, Quote from Written Word in 1903
So as you read the quote again, again and again, you begin to understand one piece of the puzzle that has been laid out before me.
I believe it's also the key to leading a prosperous life financially, emotionally, spiritually and physically. However you may be asking how do you get to the above point in your life right?
Well I now lay it out before you to grasp. I'm going to give you 5 steps that will lead you to point of consciousness in the quote.
The quote, by the way, is from the most recent Success Magazine CD that comes included. It was written in 1903 by Orison Swett Marden, the originator of Success Magazine and read for the CD. I feel that quote found it's way to me because I was inspired to receive the message it holds.
I have been reading and writing lately about the self-esteem issues that so many Americans are infected with today, unknowingly. Matter o' fact I've written about it extensively in a 15 page report that I was inspired to write several weekends ago. Take a look.
It is a rough draft but will help you understand my journey into my higher awareness.
I do plan on working on it in more detail but please don't ask me what I plan to do as far as a prosperity product because I'm not sure. It's only what I was Inspired to put out in the universe at that moment.
Now as far as these 5 steps are concerned, they aren't steps as you may be thinking.
Follow along as I explain.
My good friend Joe Wilkinson, who has trained over 4000 people as the Director & Chancellor of Nightingale-Conant International University of Coaching, shared with me something from The Strangest Secret which he authored for Nightingale-Conant.
There are 5 Steps to awareness:
Guess where the majority of the U.S. is trapped?
That's right, dependency along with one step above that, conformity.
By the way if I told you the circumstances that I came to get this information It would blow your mind.
Again the universe conspires to do us good when we leave ourselves open to inspiration. Thanks Dr. Joe Vitale for that amazing insight.
I'm going to keep this short today because I believe this is MORE than enough for you to think about at the moment and I bet if you take a minute you will find that your journey into personal development, like mine, looks just like those 5 steps.
I will get into the 5 levels of awareness and how you may be able to lift your awareness to much greater heights in a much shorter period of time had you not been aware of them. *giggle*
Now go re-read the quote and then re-read the 5 levels of awareness.
Good stuff isn't it? :-)
