Try Acting as If There is No Material World
When you try acting as if there is no material world, you learn fruitful things about money, money-making, money management, and fundraising. Try this thought-experiment with me.
Step One: What is There if There’s No Material World?
In this thought-experiment, there is only the world of the spirit, whatever that looks like for you. What does it look like? (Hint: We will return to this in our next post. It’s a very sneaky part of the whole experiment.)
You can place the material world inside this world of the spirit, off to the side somewhere.
Step Two: Where Are You?
In this world of the spirit: where are you? Did you see yourself when you answered the boldfaced 🙂 question in Step One? If you didn’t see yourself, make sure you understand where you are in this world.
Step Three: What is Important?
What’s your answer to that question: what is important in this world?
I ask because suddenly, if you’re doing the experiment, you’ll find new things are important. Likewise (or “concomitantly,” as I enjoy saying just because I like how it sounds), things that were important are, simply, not.
Step Four: What’s Missing?
What is missing is a very interesting part of this experiment. Please write in with a comment to this post and tell us: what is missing?
Do you miss it?
Are you glad it’s gone?
Quietly, now, I ask you: what is not missing: what is present? This is part of Step Four but I wanted you to answer the prior part first.
We will build on this thought-experiment, but I want to give you time to do it first.
