“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”       -Lao Tzu

Today is the bonus day of our 21-Day Meditation Experience. We are delighted to offer a special meditation on the kind of success that transcends success. That is the spiritual success that frees you from any mundane version of success. This liberation of consciousness has no limitations or definition. It is the awakened human spirit rejoicing in its own existence and freedom.

Knowing your true self is the greatest achievement you can attain. It is the success beyond all success.

CENTERING THOUGHT: I exist beyond all limitations.

SANSKRIT MANTRA: Aham Brahmasmi (I am the wholeness of life).

1.) Was there any particular experience or idea during these past 22 days that had a profound transformative effect on you, a kind of “aha” moment?

I don’t believe that there was one specific experience or idea that had a profound effect on me so much as the entire experience. For one, this is the first experience that I completed and actively listened to the meditations as opposed to just journaling. Secondly, it helped keep me grounded and on somewhat of a schedule in the midst of some very turbulent times. I’ve formed better habits as well as improved my level of discipline. I’m far more confident in myself and the world I have created for me and I make no apologies about that. I’m now able to reel myself in when I see my ego rising up and prepare myself because I’m clear enough to see the tests coming from the horizon.

2.) As you continue manifesting your successful life, take notice of others around you who are models of success in certain parts of their lives. List two or three people with life skills you admire and would like to emulate.

  • I don’t even know the word or phrase I would use for it but I wish I had the same ability to just really not care about things that I sometimes let bother me, a good example of this would be TC. TC does her own thing and makes no apologies for it. It’s one of the things I admire most about her. Check her business out for any graphic design needs you may have now or in the future. Her website is called Pyramid Dreams.
  • Although I’ve gotten far better through a very intense period of trial and error, I’ve have made so many poor financial decisions in my life. With that being said, I am proud to say that I have rectified those mistakes and went from no plan to being debt free and starting my own business that I intend on being lucrative enough to sustain the lifestyle I desire as well as provide means for others to grow and expand their lives financially. In order to do this I would love to have the financial wisdom and discipline of my cousins James and Jerard.
  • Lastly, I want to have the spirit of my mother. My mother was literally the best person I knew. She was a giver and she brought love and light into the lives of so many people. If it were not for her there would be no me and I would not have experienced half of things that I have been able to if not for the sacrifices she made, mainly her short lived time on this earth. Even though she may not be able to still touch lives in her own right, I can be the vessel and carry the light that she so early instilled in me. It’s the least I can do and often times what I want to do the most.

3.) Bring to mind those close to you who may be looking to you as a role model – your children, co-workers, even friends and associates. Recognize that as you discover your own version of a successful life, you may be helping others find their own successful life at the same time. Write down the ways in which you inspire, guide, and uplift those close to you.

I think I inspire those around me by just living my life to the fullest the best way I know how at any given time. Sometimes it has not been a pleasant thing and the ride got turbulent but now its a peaceful journey. I can see the appreciation for my growth in my family whether they say it or not. I just so happened to be blessed enough to come from a family that is closely knit and will speak their mind on your life be it what you want to hear or not. The babies know about imagination and believing and my grandmother has been able to see me make something out of nothing which is good for her soul I’m sure. I try to encourage the people around me to do and be better without being preachy and overbearing and just allowing them to see my walk.

4.) Daily Reflection:

Sometimes we get so hard on ourselves and people don’t even know the struggles we go through internally. Tests are something that people can or will understand because the message and scenario are both custom built for you. We have to stay strong and hold tight to our vision and not beat ourselves up too badly when we get slightly off track. The sooner that we figure out that we are connected but not the same and our lives have individual purposes, the easier it will be to stick to your path. Yes, there’s a crowd and they all may be doing the same things but once you find your path you have an obligation mostly to yourself to fulfill your purpose. Our work can’t be based around things we do to escape life, our life has be based on the work we were put here to do. I promise if you figure that one thing out and pursue it, the fun will find you. You will no longer need an escape from life. Success is just being happy and comfortable in who you are and the work you do. So many people say if I had money I would do x,y, and z but when they get blessed they squander it away feeding the bottomless pits of the ego. We have to do better with ourselves and our money so we can build our community and must support one another when we see people doing well and uplifting the community. Success is building, not be divisive. Success is authenticity, not facades and personas. Success is me. I am successful.
