True Prosperity: Becoming an employee of the Universe

I love the word prosperity. Prosperity represents a fulfilling life encompassing not only material wealth but happiness and genuine fulfillment. I think of it as a state where abundance is free to flow uninhibited through all areas of one’s life.

I think you could say most people long to live in such a state but few people actually do. What is it that obstructs living in a sustained state of true prosperity? True prosperity being grounded in abundance and growth oriented experiences. True prosperity is not achieved by cheating people, doing work that makes you miserable or defining prosperity solely by material wealth.

There are plenty of wealthy people who are miserable and I would not call them prosperous because key parts of their lives are unfulfilled if not a source of serious pain. I set out to discover true prosperity for myself nearly 7 years ago and its been a painful, wild but enlightening journey.

As much as I’ve struggled over the last few years trying to realize prosperity some have repeatedly told me I should just go get a job. Many points on my journey have been characterized by poverty and near homelessness. These people are well meaning in their advice and from a practical perspective it makes sense.

However after leaving a high paying corporate job in 2005 I became disgusted with the whole concept of work which is part of what led me to start this journey.

To begin with, I got another job working for a non-profit that helped the homeless and when that wasn’t fulfilling I found a job working for a large Buddhist organization. I thought for sure doing work for a spiritual organization would be fulfilling. It wasn’t.

In fact neither of these jobs felt any better to me than my corporate job. That’s because they all had one primary thing in common, expending a large amount of effort doing something I didn’t like for money, to survive. It ended up not mattering that it was for a good cause because in the moment my time and effort went into activities that were not fulfilling or nurturing to me personally.

For me something seems wrong about that and I’ve reached a point where I literally cannot do it without major physical, emotional and spiritual consequences. I slowly realized that part of my life purpose was to find a way to achieve true prosperity no matter what I had to go through in order to do that.

One of the major realizations I’ve had over the years is that we as a society and as individuals have become conditioned into lack and scarcity which is the opposite of abundance and prosperity. Part of this conditioning ties our natural survival instinct to money where money becomes synonymous with survival.

We then have to work for money so we can feel safe and secure knowing that we can make it in the world. Prosperity and abundance become about how secure your job is, how much money you have in the bank and whether you have adequate material resources. If these things are unstable, fear and stress result, and even if they are stable, there is a creeping growing discontent that spreads like a cancer slowly eating us away.

Living this way results in an unnatural state where we are forced into obligations we think are necessary for our survival and cut off from true abundance and the guidance of our creative intuition which ask us to live from the heart.

I recently saw a quote on Facebook that I’m not sure who said but it went something like this: “Human beings are the only species on this planet that has to pay to live on it”. There is a certain insanity in that when you think about it.

This is NOT natural for us. In fact, it’s probably the most effective form of slavery (my next article will go into great detail on this) ever devised, because most people don’t know they are enslaved to false abundance in the form of money.

A human beings life energy or effort is tied to working for something that is already theirs to begin with. It’s common knowledge that people will do almost anything for money and it’s no wonder if it’s deeply tied to their survival and equated with abundance.

Many spiritual people start to hate and avoid money because of this and so end up nearly destitute as I did, which is nothing more than another manifestation of lack.

One of the things we see happening today is the false system beginning to collapse in on itself. This is of course inevitable because our system is built on a house of cards. Money is no longer backed up by gold or anything of tangible value, it’s created literally out of thin air, just numbers on a computer or pieces of plastic and paper.

The time has come for us to break free from this mad and dysfunctional way of living, and this is what I’ve been working on for the last several years. Breaking free is a daunting task because the conditioning of lack goes very deep and being tied to survival involves confronting some of our worst fears.

However, if we’re not going to rely on money or a stable job for our security and abundance, what will take its place? As I’ve connected more deeply with the spiritual dimension and surrendered more fully to the guidance of higher self I have realized that the reason I cannot work a job anymore is because I already have one, one which I’ve been neglecting.

That job involves working for the most incredible employer one could ever have, the Universe. I’m an employee of the Universe. That may sound like some new age platitude or some philosophical dream, but I mean it in a very literal, very practical way.

Being an employee of the Universe means following your inner guidance and doing what you love to do, which from this perspective is what you are meant to do. You know already what your meant to do because it is what you love whether it seems like a valid vocation in the usual sense or not.

Becoming an employee of the Universe has some requirements. One is that we open our minds and really take stock of what we truly love to do and are drawn to do. Once we see that, we must let go of what we think we ‘should‘ do and fully embrace what we love.

This requires a great deal of trust at first because the fears of survival and lack based mentality will come in and try to scare us into getting back with the old program, which is working to survive.
We have to have the courage and the faith to resist that and persist because we’re not here to survive. Animals are here to survive, we are here to thrive and create and as human beings we have the capability to co-create our reality.

The reward for persistance is true unlimited abundance. Like any other employer, the Universe pays its employees for doing their jobs. But unlike conventional employers it pays in unlimited abundance, which means you don’t have a fixed salary and your not just paid in money, rather your paid with just what you need when you need it.

Like a traditional employer though the Universe will not pay you if you don’t do your job. That is, if you don’t follow your intuitive guidance and really DO what you love, you cannot expect abundance to flow freely in your life. You may get spurts of it here and there but it won’t be reliable. So we have to ACT on our intuition and passion and ask for what we need in the process.

When we first make the transition to working directly for the Universe, most of us go through a difficult transition phase where we deal with doubt, fear and scarcity. We also deal with obligations from our previous way of living which no longer fit with our path.

These obligations may be in the form of relationships, jobs, houses, places we live, friends etc. To work full time for the Universe we must let go of any obligations which block us from living in the moment, following our hearts and creating true prosperity.

We will know intuitively what needs to be let go of because those things will feel more and more wrong and will stick out like a sore thumb even though we may resist letting them go with all our might.

We also need to learn to get in touch with the deeper part of ourselves, which I call Higher Self or Spirit, because this is where our guidance comes from and its what we have to learn to trust and have faith in.

That’s all part of the process because in effect we are building an entirely new life which rests in freedom, passion and abundance … actually this is just life, mainstream life is a pale shadow of living fully, which is why so many people are depressed, addicted to various substances and self destructive behaviors.

When we really step into being employees of the Universe and partake in true abundance, we realize prosperity and lasting happiness. This doesn’t mean life ceases to be painful, but we have a deeper happiness that is ok with the pain because we are fulfilled and have purpose and direction in life and we realize pain is part of living life in this world.

We’re creating what we are here to create and adding something of value to the world while we express Spirit in a unique creative way.

I believe this is what nearly all of us truly long for and many have already attained some measure of it. Have you?

How to Digitally Record/Video a UFO sighting:

Como registar digitalmente ou gravar um vídeo de um avistamento de um UFO:

Stabilize the camera on a tripod. If there is no tripod, then set it on top of a stable, flat surface. If that is not possible lean against a wall to stabilize your body and prevent the camera from filming in a shaky, unsteady manner.

Estabilize a camera com um tripé. Se não tiver um tripé, então coloque-a em cima de uma superfície estável. Se não for possível, então encoste-se a uma parede para estabilizar o corpo e evitar que a camera registe de maneira tremida e instável.

Provide visual reference points for comparison. This includes the horizon, treetops, lampposts, houses, and geographical landmarks (i.e., Horsetooth Reservoir, Mt. Adams, etc.) Provide this in the video whenever is appropriate and doesn’t detract from what your focus is, the UFO.

Forneça pontos visuais de referência para comparação. Isso inclui o horizonte, cimo das árvores, postes de iluminação, pontos de referência geográficos (como o Reservatório de Horsetooth, Mone Adams, etc) Forneça esses pontos no vídeo sempre que for apropriado e não se distraia do que é o seu foco, o UFO/a Nave.

Narrate your videotape. Provide details of the date, time, location, and direction (N,S,E,W) you are looking in. Provide your observations on the weather, including approximate temperature, windspeed, any visible cloud cover or noticeable weather anomalies or events. Narrate on the shape, size, color, movements, approximate altitude of the UFO, etc and what it appears to be doing. Also include any unusual physical, psychological or emotional sensations you might have. Narrate any visual reference points on camera so they correlate with what the viewer will see, and thereby will be better able to understand.

Faça a narração do vídeo. Forneça pormenores sobre a data, hora, local e direcção (Norte, Sul, Este, Oeste) que está a observar. Faça observações sobre as condições atmosféricas, incluindo a temperatura aproximada, velocidade do vento, quantidade de nuvens, anomalias ou acontecimentos meteorológicos evidentes. Descreva a forma, o tamanho, a cor, os movimentos, a altitude aproximada onde se encontra o UFO/nave, etc e o que aparenta estar a fazer. Inclua também quaisquer aspectos pouco habituais de sensações físicas, psicológicas ou emocionais que possa ter. Faça a narração de todos os pontos de referência visual que o espectador irá ver e que, deste modo, será capaz de compreender melhor.

Be persistent and consistent. Return to the scene to videotape and record at this same location. If you have been successful once, the UFO sightings may be occurring in this region regularly, perhaps for specific reasons unknown, and you may be successful again. You may also wish to return to the same location at a different time of day (daylight hours) for better orientation and reference. Film just a minute or two under “normal” circumstances for comparison. Write down what you remember immediately after. As soon as you are done recording the experience/event, immediately write down your impressions, memories, thoughts, emotions, etc. so it is on the record in writing. If there were other witnesses, have them independently record their own impressions, thoughts, etc. Include in this exercise any drawings, sketches, or diagrams. Make sure you date and sign your documentation.

Seja persistente e não contraditório. Volte ao local da cena e registe o mesmo local. Se foi bem sucedido uma vez, pode ser que nessa região ocorram avistamentos de UFOs/naves com regularidade, talvez por razões específicas desconhecidas, e talvez possa ser novamente bem sucedido. Pode também desejar voltar ao mesmo lugar a horas diferentes do dia (durante as horas de luz)para ter uma orientação e referência melhor. Filme apenas um ,inuto ou dois em circunstâncias “normais” para ter um termo de comparação. Escreva tudo o que viu imediatamente após o acontecimento. Logo após ter feito o registo da experiência/acontecimento, escreva imediatamente as impressões, memórias, pensamentos, emoções, etc para que fiquem registadas por escrito. Se houver outras testemunhas, peça-lhes para registar independentemente as suas próprias impressões, pensamentos, etc. Inclua quaisquer desenhos, esbolos, diagramas. Certifique-se que data e assina o seu documento/testemunho.

Always be prepared. Have a digital camera or better yet a video camera with you, charged and ready to go, at all times. Make sure you know how to use your camera (and your cell phone video/photo camera) quickly and properly. These events can occur suddenly, unexpectedly, and often quite randomly, so you will need to be prepared.

Esteja sempre preparado, Tenha sempre uma camera digital, melhor ainda, uma camera vídeo consigo, carregada e pronta a usar sempre que necessário. Certifique-se que sabe como lidar com a sua camera (ou com o seu celular/camera fotográfica) rápida e adequadamente. Esses acontecimentos podem acontecer súbita e inesperadamente e, por vezes, acidentalmente, por isso, necessita estar preparado.

Look up. Be prepared. Report. Share.

Olhe para cima, Esteja preparado, Relate, Partilhe.
