7 Nuggets of Wisdom from Wallace Wattles’ Book: The Science of Getting Rich

Published

on

The Science of Getting Rich, by Wallace D. Wattles (1860 -1911) discusses how you can use thought power to achieve financial success.

Many successful people including, The Secret’s author, Rhonda Byrne (Networth – $60 million) claim that the book inspired them on their Journey to Greatness.

I read the book, and I loved it because it made me believe I can get rich if I want to. I also learned many lessons about riches from the book, and something inside me urged me to share them with you.

Here are the main lessons I learned.

  1. God Wants You to Be Rich

Wattles believes God wants you to be wealthy because God can manifest ‘himself’ better through you when you have an endless authority over the means of life.

Furthermore, Wattles writes that God wants you to be rich because riches enable you to reach your full potential and help other individuals.

  1. Being Rich Enables You to Live a Complete Life

According to Wallace D. Wattles, riches enable you to live a complete life because money provides you what you need for you to reach the height of your talent and develop your soul.

You need particular things to develop the soul and the mind, and the modern society is organized in a way that you have to be rich to own these things.

  1. There is Nothing Wrong with Wanting to Be Rich

Some spiritual teachers claim that it’s evil to desire riches because money is the root of all evil. However, Wattles informs us that there is nothing wrong with desiring riches.

Riches free the body from struggle, and they enable you to afford healthy foods and good shelter. Furthermore, riches enable you to nourish the mind because they allow you to travel and buy books.

  1. A Large Percentage of Rich People are Average Individuals

Wattles claims that talent is not responsible for making individuals rich.

He conducted a study on rich people and realized that they were average individuals with fewer talents than most of us.

  1. Thought is a Powerful Force

Wattles teaches that your thoughts are powerful because they make The Creator/God act by bringing you opportunities that match them.

  1. Thankfulness Will Enable You to Attract Good Things

In the book, Wattles writes that many wonderful things will come to you when you are thankful because being grateful makes you more connected to God: The Source of All Wealth.

Besides this, being grateful enables you to attract good things because it makes you align with the creative forces of the universe.

Draw Nigh Unto God, and He Will Draw Nigh Unto You

      7. You Can Succeed in Any Industry

Finally, Wattles teaches that you can succeed in any industry including an industry where you don’t have the right skills because you can build the necessary skills required for succeeding in that industry.

    Those are all great thoughts about the possibility of becoming rich. Hoping that will work out for me. 🙂 And thanks for the reminder to be grateful! I forget, or I think I don’t have anything to be grateful that day, but I always do, if I just give myself a moment to think about it.

The Vegetable Man, the Animal Man, and the Natural Man: The Ancient Secret Wisdom of the Kabbalah

The Vegetable Man, the Animal Man, and the Natural Man: The Ancient Secret Wisdom of the Kabbalah

The Kabbalah was a school of thought – in Jewish mysticism – that wanted its members to achieve oneness with the Creator. As well, it encouraged members to discover their full potential and live a fulfilling life. However, it was hidden from the public, and only a few individuals understood its teachings.

For this reason, great authors, for example, Shimon Halevi, have tried to simplify the Kabbalah so that we understand its secret esoteric teachings. In his book, The Way to Kabbalah, Shimon explains the Kabbalah’s teachings in a simple way.

Although the book has several teachings, I loved the teachings about the vegetable man, the animal man, and the natural man, and something forced me to share them with you.

The vegetable man, as Shimon puts it, ‘is any individual that aims at living a secure and regular life with minimal disturbance from outer and inner worlds.’ He dwells at the vegetable level of existence since he is mainly concerned with excreting, reproducing, eating, resting, and breathing. This man chooses the safest path and avoids risky paths because he yearns for security. For this reason, he will die in the city he was born, and he will adhere to his parents’ life plan.

On the other hand, the animal man is an evolved being. He has strong willpower and loves shaking the world with amazing discoveries. Just like an animal that wants something, the animal man will ignore pain so that he achieves his objectives. Moreover, he possesses high levels of perseverance and determination, and as Shimon writes, ‘he has an objective beyond comfort and pleasure.’  This man creates empires and uses his dreams to change the world.

Both the animal and vegetable man have big dreams. The main difference between them is that the animal man fights for his dreams, while the vegetable man chooses security over going through the risky and competitive path of dream chasing.

The natural man possesses the powers of the animal and the vegetable man. He is a powerful being, for he has power over both living and non-living things. Shimon refers to him as ‘The Spearhead of organic life.’ This man knows that he creates his own reality, and understands that the Spirit of God dwelleth in him.

Human beings are destined to be natural men. We were created to rule the earth and gain dominion over everything. Also, we were put here to develop our spiritual, physical, and mental powers to their full potential so that we become gods on this planet.

However, most people act like vegetable men. Although they want to develop into animal and natural men, they are afraid of the narrow path that leads to these states of being. They thus prefer a normal and less risky life. Eventually, they die wishing they worked on evolving into the animal and natural man because they realize that a normal life is a boring and an unfulfilling life.

PEACE BE WITH YOU

The Secret History of the Illuminati

The Secret History of the Illuminati

‘It should be understood that the doctrines and philosophies expounded by the Illuminati predate it by millennia. These traditions and beliefs can be traced back through the Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Knights Templars, Mystery Schools of Greece and Egypt, to ancient Sumer and their accounts of the possibly extraterrestrial Annunaki (Jim Marr; Illuminati: The Secret Society That Hijacked the World).’

Recently, I posted a book review of Jim Marr’s book: Illuminati; The Secret Society that Hijacked the World. Today, I’ll share with you Jim Marr’s amazing thoughts on the history of the Illuminati.

According to Jim Marr, the Illuminati stole its secret knowledge from ancient secret societies. These secret societies stole this secret knowledge from an advanced ancient civilization known as Sumer, which received the knowledge from extraterrestrial beings known as The Annunaki.

These secret societies were not evil associations. They all believed in God, and they claimed to understand the hidden mysteries of the world. Besides, they referred to themselves as ‘The Chosen Ones’ since they believed they were the keepers of hidden spiritual knowledge. However, they hated the church because they believed they didn’t need anyone to interpret the word of God for them.

These secret societies led to the founding of the Illuminati in 1776 by Adam Weishaupt, a student of ancient knowledge, and an admirer of ancient secret societies. Weishaupt formed the Illuminati because he wanted to use it to promote justice and equality.

He then focused on recruiting the youth: particularly professionals and individuals from wealthy families.

Later, the Illuminati attracted the interest of high-level society members – such as scientists, authors, bankers, politicians, and philosophers- who then changed its goals and used it to establish control over the masses. The Illuminati was then banned in 1785, and Adam Weishaupt was forced into exile. However, despite being banned, the Illuminati continued existing under different forms and names.

Today, it controls the world’s political, economic, religious, and social affairs. Some whistleblowers claim that the Illuminati is engineering diseases and creating wars to reduce the world’s population. On top of that, several conspiracy theorists believe the Illuminati is currently conducting moon landings and secret space flights.

Anyway, some people believe famous musicians, politicians, writers, and investors are the primary members of The Illuminati, while others claim that the main members are extraterrestrials who also rule other planets.

It’s difficult to know who exactly the Illuminati is, and its specific aims. However, what we surely know is that A RULING CLASS that controls the masses exists, for as Albert Einstein wrote, ‘the ruling class at present, has the schools and press, usually the Church as well, under its thumb. This enables it to organize and sway the emotions of the masses, and make its tool of them (Jim Marr, The Secret Society That Hijacked the World).’

Peace Be With You
