I picked up a great book (Your Right to Fly – James E. Melton) at the thrift store and loved his section on Wealth. I think his idea ties into the Vacuum Law of Prosperity.
“Beware of holding too much good in your hand.” – Emerson
Melton considers breathing and how we must let air out in order to take in more air. We hold it and then exhale – it is a constant rroutine and we do it without even thinking. Melton learned that we have to let go (let the air out), in order to make room for more.
If we hold our breath, we block the good and new air from entering our body.
From Melton, “What Emerson was saying is that that we can block our good by holding on too tightly to what we have. In order to get mroe we must be willing to let go of what we already have.”
I have set a goal to clean out some piece of my house every week and take the items to the thrift store. I have been a believer in ebay auctions and craigslist for quite some time, but I just decided that whatever I could take to the thrift store, I would happily do so. I am seeing that the more I give, the more I get. An added benefit is that I don’t have the stress of shipping packages, or watching an auction, or being disappointed in the price/interest in my goods. It is nice to just know I put something back into the universe and it will go to the person that needs it.
This weekend I took a scanner to the thrift store, and I could just picture someone being thrilled with their new found treasure. Perhaps a scanner is just what they need to build their own business or finish school. Somebody out there needs it more than I do, and I am happy to be able to give.
