⚡ Be more energy and less matter

published4 months ago
4 min read

Hey there creator,

Someone once asked me if I were to pinpoint one thing that changed my perception of the world and the way I show up in it over the past few years, what would it be.

My answer was simple:

When I started viewing everything as energy.

Myself. Other people. Animals. Plants. Objects. Everything organic and inorganic in the world.

Most importantly, it’s when I started viewing my thoughts and emotions as energy.

Why is this important?

Because energy can be directed.

Intentionally, directed energy is a key quality that distinguishes those who consciously create their lives and those living as victims.

Conscious creators feel more like energy and less like physical matter.

I know it sounds a bit odd but I explain more in this quick post.



Wealth Is A State of Mind

A Wealth of Common Sense | 3 minutes

“No matter how much money you have, if you’re still worried, you aren’t wealthy.”

This post dissects the old paradigm of wealth that it's determined by the amount of money you have in the bank, how big your investment portfolio is, or the number of rental properties you own. We are conditioned to think that only those with a high enough income can be considered rich.

Instead what constitutes a rich life really depends on your relationship with money and what matters most to you in life. There are many ways to become wealthy that don’t involve money.

👉 Being content with what you have is a sure sign you’re living a rich life.

👉 When you’re content, a number doesn’t matter as much as your mindset.

Forget Setting Goals. Focus on Creating Systems.

James Clear | 6 minutes

"Goals are good for planning your progress and systems are good for actually making progress."

In this short excerpt from his bestseller Atomic Habits, James Clear makes the case that in order to make a change in our lives we need to shift our focus from goals to creating systems.

For example, if you were a basketball coach and you ignored your goal to win a championship and focused only on what your team does at practice each day, would you still get results? Could they still win a championship?

Of course, they could — because when you fall in love with the system, the goal will take care of itself.

What are your Karma and Destiny?
Sadhguru | 55 minutes

This is a snippet from a live webinar with Sadhguru, the Indian Yogi and mystic.

You can live in a palace and be horrendously miserable.
You can live on the street and be exuberantly joyful.
Both are possible.
Your experience of life is where your destiny is.

Your experience of life is what determines the quality of your life, not where you are, where you're going, or what you're doing.

These things are only socially relevant, not existentially relevant.
What matters for you existentially as you sit here, is noticing what is your experience of life. How profound is it? How pleasant is it?
This is all that determines your destiny and you are 100% in charge of it because human experience is caused from within.
Pain and pleasure. Joy and misery. Ecstasy. They all happen from within us and when it is happening from within us at least what is happening happens our way.
But that's it — because there is never going to be any time for any human being where the external situations will be 100% the way you want it.

Forget the Law of Attraction. It's the Law of Resonance that Will Change Your Life
2 minutes

You're likely familiar with the Law of Attraction for manifesting what you desire but this idea is rather simplistic, incomplete, and highly misleading. Instead of attraction, we should have a mindset of resonance. In a nutshell, the Law of Resonance states:

You don’t get what you want from life but rather you get a reflection of who you are.
