Hello fellow “unassuming guru” seekers. To the pure all things are pure; there is nothing impure of itself. Do you know what that means? It means that when you have a crisp clear vision of what you are up to, nothing can stop you. However, when your vision is impure (foggy with doubt), you will end up living without. Many a guru will pass your way to remind you of that continually. Marcus jogged my memory, and now I share with you what he asked that I share with him. (see below)
Hello Mr. White
I heard you speak at Northeastern University’s Richard’s Hall in Boston. I loved the energy you generate. You left us with a quote about woeful and wowful people, and the difference those attitudes make. Do you remember what you said specifically? I’d love to write it down.
Very gratefully yours, Marcus
Listening to the tape, I believe you’re referring to this:
“Woeful man sees his dreams as fiction because he sees himself as a victim, which causes a lot of friction when trying to make his dreams fact. On the other hand, Wowful man sees his dreams as factual, because he has a Wonderful Obsession with Winning, and thus he acts with lightning speed when transforming his imaginal acts into physical fact.”
WOE is my acronym for What On Earth, which is an attitude of, “poor me, What On Earth is causing me so much misery?” That’s placing the blame out there in the world instead of taking responsibility.
WOW is my acronym for a Wonderful Obsession with Winning. That’s saying, “If it is to be, it is up to me,” and taking that statement responsibly.
Clearly WOE and WOW are all the opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to how one looks at life.
Blessings to you, Marcus
Did you ask, “What’s this got to do with me?” I hope you did. Don’t believe in the future, believe the future in. With an attitude of WOW you can easily do that.
Blessings and love to all of you, Rob
PS You are not a victim of fate. You are a victim of faith. Your faith is your fate. That means “that in which you have faith is fated to be for thee.”
