If you are atrepparttar bottom ofrepparttar 122309 economic ladder, one ofrepparttar 122310 so-called less fortunate among us, it may seem that you cannot lift yourself up financially no matter what you do. You may wonder if you have a guide and why he or she has not helped you achieve some financial success.

I suspect that you already know part ofrepparttar 122311 answer to this question. Financial success may be important to you now, but it wasnít that important to you onrepparttar 122312 other side when you chose your goal, with perfect knowledge and information at your disposal. Your guide knows this. How can you learn what it is like to do withoutrepparttar 122313 things you long for unless you experience doing without? How else can you learn what it feels like to sleep inrepparttar 122314 cold or go hungry without experiencing it? And rememberrepparttar 122315 earlier discussion about cosmic responsibilities. By now you should be convinced that no matter what your circumstances, you are no less valued or important than a billionaire.

Weíre all on different paths. You may have already experienced a life of wealth and plenty inrepparttar 122316 past and decided to use this incarnation to learn about existence atrepparttar 122317 other end, filled with wants and extreme financial hardship.

You have chosen to have specific experiences in this life, to reach a specific goal. These experiences are always for your good. Perhaps attaining financial success in this life would cause you to deviate fromrepparttar 122318 path youíre supposed to be on through this life. It is part of your guideís responsibility to ensure that you remain on your path, even if it means guiding you away from financial freedom. Isnít thatrepparttar 122319 reason for having a guide, someone objective enough to help you stay onrepparttar 122320 path youíve chosen for yourself? Be assured that your guide is working hard to prevent you from deviating fromrepparttar 122321 goal youíve chosen for this incarnation.

Sorepparttar 122322 next time a great idea comes to you or you achieve success, no matter what represents success to you, donít take allrepparttar 122323 credit. It may not be entirely of your own making. Show your gratitude by using some of that success to help others.

By identifyingrepparttar notions that createrepparttar 122308 feelings, it is much easier to analyze. Reduce these rules down torepparttar 122309 bare minimum and identifyrepparttar 122310 foundation on which these rules are based. You might find that, as you meander through your own thought processes, that many of your ideas might be based on parental voices or misconceptions. Replacerepparttar 122311 parental voices with your own commands and expectations. Analyze and research your misconceptions to identifyrepparttar 122312 realities behindrepparttar 122313 knowledge. Is it realistic to think this way or should you modify your belief systems to accommodate a new, realistic foundation?

--- Feedback and Processing ---

Once we're able to open our minds to new ways of thought and reduce our preconceived notions, we are then open to myriad new ideas and information that we never thought possible. Not only will we be able to accept and process new information, but we will be able to grow.

In reality, our brain is merely a processing portal for information. Put together, we are all but a massive distributed processing system. I remember that SETI had this distributed processing model for managing and processing vast amounts of data. It allowed computer users aroundrepparttar 122314 globe to download their software, which processedrepparttar 122315 plethora of data from their deep-space listening posts. The data was downloaded torepparttar 122316 users' machines, processed, and sent back torepparttar 122317 central site for consolidation and analysis.

The human brain takes in information through our senses and processes it based onrepparttar 122318 rules and cognitive maps we've created overrepparttar 122319 years. It then pushesrepparttar 122320 results back up intorepparttar 122321 Grid,repparttar 122322 Universe, for storage and access --- our long-term, "collective" memory. The brain is not an isolated device and cannot live as such. It requires input and information exchange --- sensory and psi input is essential for healthy mental and physical processing.

--- What's next? ---

Intelligence is not what you know, but what you're able to do with what you learn. The ability to apply information successfully is a factor of one's ability to process information efficiently. The ability to process information efficiently comes withrepparttar 122323 ability to analyze results and adjust one's systems to intakerepparttar 122324 new information and use it productively. This is called "feedback". Such feedback comes from within and from our environment and is essential to growth as an individual and evolution as a species.

When we isolate our minds, and ourselves, through complex rules, we begin to create our own answers based on previous answers. Over time, we deceive ourselves about ourselves andrepparttar 122325 world around us. Stoprepparttar 122326 self-deceit and grow toward a fulfilling life! By simplifying your belief systems and being open to new information in new ways, you will droprepparttar 122327 "excess baggage" that weighs you down and blurs your vision while gaining access a vast amount of information and resources that you never thought possible. --- Aboutrepparttar 122328 Author ---
