Overseas version - Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Singapore
Your life was never meant to be a struggle. Somewhere along the way you lost sight of that fact. You are not a victim, you are creating all the circumstances of your life. Abundance, good health, and relationships are created by you for your own purpose. You have the power to change anything in your life by choice.
This is a book of empowerment, inspiration and written to take you to the next level of enlightenment.
All of us at some time in our life get stuck in a belief system. As I like to say, we are stuck in a box, with no new information coming in, or we tend to ignore it. We get comfortable with what we know, and are not willing to go through what we perceive as an effort to change.
In order to get out of your box you must first be willing, at least for the moment, to give up on the idea that "the box" is all there is. If you are not prepared to do this, there is very little likelihood of you learning anything different than that which you already know, and there is little chance of any meaningful growth. In the darkness of the box there is no light for anything to blossom.
One of the biggest fears that many people have about learning anything new is that it might nullify anything that they have believed-in before. One often fears that when they change what they have always believed in, it retroactively means they have been living a lie. This fear is so strong, that one will exaggerate any negative reasoning imagined, in favour of maintaining the status quo.
Playing it safe, not rocking the boat and staying in the comfort zone, is better in the minds of some people than the promise of anything gained by developing themselves spiritually in something as abstract as a new or upgraded belief system.
Being open to new possibilities is scary. There is always the lingering thought that we may be punished for transgressing and unable to return to our comfort zone. Our souls may be lost forever and unredeemable.
In opening up and lifting yourself out of the box it is not necessary to assess your old beliefs as right or wrong. That would be incorrect. What you have believed in, or now believe in, is exactly correct for you at this time of your evolution, given your own model of the world. There is no right or wrong; only that which now works for you and that which doesn't work for you.
Life is every-changing and is the only constant in the universe. Where there is no change life can not exist. Life is limited in the box, which is a "closed system" as you would now understand it.
All closed systems are temporary and are limited in scope or function. Your life in the box is the same. Without new ideas coming into the box there is no change, and therefore limited life and possibilities. New ideas and beliefs bring to your life new possibilities for growth and function.
You create who you are in every minute of your physical existence. You are in total control of what you manifest in your life. You can do, or have anything you desire, simply by knowing it is already yours, and by understanding this principal.
Living in the box is nothing more than slow death, while knowledge is freedom and life. Freedom is who you really are and it is your inheritance. Making choices is exercising your freedom.
Most all of us do not know who we really are, other than our name. For most of our lives we live very much the way we were taught by our parents, our schools, our churches, our friends, and what we read about and see on television. We are a product of how others see us, rather than of who we really are. We are modeled after someone else's idea of how we should be.
