Good day and I hope you are having a great day. Today I want to tackle a very deep subject. I don’t come to this from a perspective of religion or philosophy. These are just my observations and my opinions that I hope will make you think about the events around the world. I believe that the only way to have peace, the type of peace that will encompass the world is to be to be educated about the truth. I don’t mean the truth like it is said in many religious books. I mean the truth that is obvious to everyone with an average amount of intelligence and common sense. The truth that is not dependent on interpretation. The truth that cannot be disputed in the court of law. The type of truth that is not based on what my father, or his father passed along down to me. The type of truth that is not based on years of prejudice.
I am going to start with the premise that there is only one source. Many religious books call that source God. Some scientific evidence point to it as energy. Depending on your religion, language, or culture you may refer to that source by different name. But there is one source that this entire Universe was created from. If we can agree on that point, we know that this Source also facilitated the creation of Humans. Again it does not matter what you believe. I am not arguing or disputing your belief. Humans were created through the process originating from the one source. Weather you believe in God, or Science, on this point we can all agree. Either God created heaven and the earth, or there was a big bang and the Universe expanded to create the cosmos we are a part of. Let’s not get off topic. That is not the discussion I am having. Even though there are many galaxies, with many planets, you and I are happen to be on a planet called Earth in this time and in this space. On this planet even though there are many organisms that are stronger, and more powerful than us, humans occupy the top of the food chain. I don’t think that is by accident.
When it comes to being an apex predator, organisms like the great white shark, or the lion have a score of 5. Humans on that same scale rank at a 2.5, yet we are considered an apex predator and in many respects the most dangerous animal on this planet. So the source that has given us this kind of prosperity and advantage of power, has also created all of us. Hence despite our physical, and phenotypic differences we are all created by the same process that was put in place by a single source. Therefor we are all equal. Many religious cultures believe that we are even created in the Image of the source. Scientifically we are all energy.
Now why is it then, that those same principles that are taught in different religions and different philosophies then differentiate between sections of humans who are created by the same source. If we are ALL created by the same source, we are ALL created EQUAL. We all have the same rights.
Let me now get to the point of doing something to please the source. The source that created us is so loving, and so graceful that we are the rulers of this planet despite our lack of physical attributes. All of that love was given freely to us by this process from a single source, and the process came about freely. I can only name it love, because that is the language that I am speaking now. Maybe you want to call it a Plan. Maybe you will like to call it being chosen. Whatever you choose has to apply to all of us. The feeling however, goes much deeper than love, chosen, or plan. We don’t have to do anything to please the source. We do not have to kill anybody. We do not have to build anything, we do not have to argue with others who differ in their opinions from us. The love will always be there as it has always been there. The source that created all these processes that created us, also does not need protecting. None of us with our limitations can do anything to destroy or protect that source. By definition that source just IS. It has always been. It will always be.
Nobody is better, nobody is worse. Nobody is going to have more prosperity just because they name the source a certain name, and nobody will have less prosperity just because they happen to name the source differently or may not even believe in a source to begin with. It is all love. We are all the same. It is only human ignorance that creates conflict, that creates war, that creates death. It is the same ignorance that has created multiple propaganda to make others think we have to do something to please our source. Nowhere in any true literature referring to the source is there any clear indication that one type of human should kill another type of innocent human just so they can please the source. It is absolute idiocracy to believe that we in our limited life span and limited knowledge can do anything to vary the process that the source has put in place. Just love one another, as the source love us. Stop concentrating on your differences and stop making yourself believe that you have to create hate in order to achieve greatness or favor with the source. The source does not care or want you to create hate. The source does not understand hate. Remember there was one source. You and I are both created by the process set into motion by that one source with love and there is nothing that we need to do differently. All the pain and suffering that we cause is caused by our human ignorance.
Let me know what you think about this. Once again I don’t mean any disrespect to anyone or any philosophy. I am just pointing out obvious facts. It is time for us Humans to stop killing each other, or justify our superiority in the name of anything. It is time to stop being so stupid. The same source that created us, will eventually destroy us in a blink of an eye in histories time scale if we do not wake up and figure out that we are all here with love and for the purpose of loving. That there is no competition but the one we make ourselves. That we can all be at one with each other and with nature. Make your comments on my Facebook, and twitter. Till next week, to you success. I wish you much success and happiness in 2016.

Good day and I hope you are having a great day. I am visiting family in South of France for the holidays whom I have not seen for over a decade. As we are reminiscing about the past, I thought about something that inspired this post. Many times when family and friends get together, talk eventually comes to “what if we had done…” kind of talk. As Albert Einstein said “Time is an illusion, albeit a persistent one”. I personally have a great deal of difficulty staying in the present. I am more conscious of it after reading the book by Eckhart Tolle called The Power of Now, but this concept is still a difficult one to practice.
I keep on thinking if I don’t use my past as a learning experience, I may repeat my mistakes as I have done before. This is all well and good, however when I start thinking and getting sucked into the “what if…” type of thinking it does no one any good. When we start to reminisce about what could have been there is a good way and a bad way to go about doing it. Let us analyze each way now.
The good way is the way Dr. Joe Vitale, and even Anthony Robbins explain “reframing” your past. That is the constructive going back visualization of rethinking your mistakes and being constructive about the past. That is a form of eliminating regret, and learning from mistakes. In this form of visualization you are changing the feelings of regret, sadness, envy, etc. into positive thoughts of accomplishment. The bad way of doing this is to actually bring up the past and re-live the mistakes and feel bad and worried about the events that originally produced the same negative feelings. Often times during these sessions I get just as, or even more upset than the original situation. My blood pressure goes up, my heart rate increases, and a general feeling regret comes over.
As we have discussed, from the stand point of The Law of Attraction, these feelings have a very high vibration, which means they will attract very quickly, situations that will give me the opportunity to feel bad. That is not what I want. Using the past to learn, is a good thing. It should be a short use of the “time”, not a place to wallow in ones pity. Yet that is what happens most of the time. Once we start to go down that road, it is very easy to have others join us, because people love to talk about all the bad things that have happened to them. Very rarely do people talk about the good things, and I think it is the social aversion to being over confident or to “brag” about one’s past.
What we have to realize however, is that by going back to the negative feelings of the past, we are not doing anyone any good and in fact we are setting ourselves up for more failures. We don’t have to brag, but confidence in the good things that have happened, and vocalization of these feelings with GRATITUDE is a great way to attract more of it to our situation. That is the purpose of visualization of the past. We should use it to our advantage. The mistake has happened and we have come through it one way or another. What is the point of being upset over the so called “spilled milk”?
I hope this makes sense to you and you will heed my warning about reminiscing about your mistakes. Don’t beat yourself up over things that have been done. There is nothing to come of it. Concentrate on the positive and more positivity will come your way. I look forwards to your comments on my Facebook page and your Tweets on my Twitterfeed. Till next week, to your success and happy holidays.

Good day and I hope you are having a wonderful week. This week’s blog is very practical. I am going to detail how you can have everything that you want and I am going to set down action plans for you to do it. The only thing you need to do is to actually do them.
One of the things that many new practitioners of The Law of Attraction (LOA) have difficulty with is actually taking action and sticking to a set of actions that needs to be done on a daily bases until it becomes natural for them and then their manifestation becomes physical. It takes discipline but more importantly it needs a “good WHY?”. If your “why” is very important, taking action and being disciplined is very easy. If your “why” is just a hope out there, then when something better comes along, or when you don’t feel like it you will skip the action. Once you skip doing something that you must do, it becomes easier to skip it again. Very soon you have lost the momentum and you are not taking the action that you need to, in order to get what you desire.
The action steps that I am going to set forth for you are very simple. If you have read this blog, specially the earlier posts from 2010 labeled SOME BASIC POSTS FOR NEW READERS on the right lower side of the page, or if you have investigated or have been a student of LOA there won’t be any surprise in it for you. I challenge you however, to do these action steps for the next 90 days. Every single day, and if you happen to stop one day or miss one day you start your timer again from zero. Are you up to the challenge? 90 days to get everything you want? Because when you get one thing done, your will see the power, and you will believe which makes the next thing so much more easier to manifest. I hope you are up to the challenge. So let’s get started.
As I mentioned before you are going to write down the “why” of what you want to accomplish along with what it is you want. This is going to be the biggest and most important part of this process so take the time and make it as detailed as possible. Again you are going to WRITE down the WHY of what you want to accomplish. Try to bring as many feelings as you can into it. Try to keep the feelings positive. If you have to write something negative, make sure you will continue to write the positive feelings that then will come about as a result of attaining the goal. For example: I want to have an extra $5k / month because I am about to get evicted from my house. Then I can write “I feel so happy and grateful now that I have achieved getting $5k extra per month and renting my own loft in Manhattan”. So you notice the why at the beginning was “ I am getting evicted and I need $5k”. But that is coming from a place of desperation, so I am going to follow it up with “I am so happy and grateful now that I have my $5k and I have rented my loft in Manhattan”.
You are going to write down again something you want to accomplish in specific details. “I am going to rent a loft in Manhattan. It costs $5k per month”. Then you are going to visualize having that experience RIGHT NOW and FEELING the way you would feel in the loft right now. So if you can go and visit a loft in Manhattan go and do it. Make an appointment with a realtor and go and visit a for rent loft in Manhattan if that is possible. You want to put yourself into the position of getting the feeling as real as they can be. If you can’t visit the actual place, then do the best you can to bring about as much of the feelings as you can about being happy and in joy in YOUR LOFT. Take virtual tour of the lofts, find pictures of lofts etc. This is huge, because you are going to need to do this every day for the next 90 days. By the time the 90th day comes around this feeling will be so familiar and so realistic to you, provided you have done this every day for the past 90 days, that the next logical step will be the manifestation of your goal.
That is the biggest part of making the LOA work for you. It is getting into the GOOD FEELING, again notice I am mentioning the GOOD FEELING OF HAVING ACCOMPLISHED WHAT YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH RIGHT NOW. It is huge. You are going to do this for the next 90 days. Very simple. Not so easy, but I am trying to keep it simple. There are no more steps than necessary. This does not have to be a big book of instructions. The more complex you make it, the less chances of you actually taking action on it. So HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT ? What is it worth to you to have whatever you want? The good thing is that when you do achieve this, and I know you will, you will have proven to yourself that you can do it. That will boost your confidence and your belief which will make the next thing you want exponentially easier to attract. Is it worth it? Only you can answer that. This is by far the most important post of this year. Don’t waste it. Share it.
If you can write to me on my Facebook page, or tweet me and let me know how things are going it would be great. The more of you post on my Facebook or use the hashtag #ajfarzad to tweet to me the more people can support you. We can lift each other up. If you stumble also send me comments. Send me pictures of the things you have accomplished and post them on my Facebook page. I hope this makes sense. I hope this changes your life forever and gives you the confident to realize that you have the power to change your reality. Until next week, to your success.

Good day and I hope you are having a great day. The holidays are coming, and with all the preparations and hustle and bustle it is easy for many people to start feeling down. In this post I want to concentrate on something that works well for those times that you are feeling bad, sad, depressed, or any such negative emotions.
When we are feeling bad, or sad, we are on a lower vibration spectrum. It does not matter how we got there. If you have been a student of The Law of Attraction (LOA) you know that somehow you have been giving your attention to situations that you do not want, and those feelings have attracted more opportunities to feel more of the same feelings and finally they have overwhelmed you. By the time you actually realize this, in most instances you are deep down into the attraction of the things you don’t want, or the flood of emotions that make you sad, and depressed. It is unlikely that you can turn this situation on a dime and go be happy from where you are.
Well I have a quick sure way of setting you on the right track. It is so easy, most people do not give it a chance. They quickly dismiss it. Yet if you actually follow through with honest and whole hearted effort you will be so surprised at how well it changes your vibration and starts attracting what you actually are looking for. The simple solution is GO AND DO SOMETHING NICE FOR SOMEONE ELSE.
Simple isn’t it. That is it. Keep it simple. Do not over think it. Do not go overboard. You do not want to stress yourself out. Something that comes genuinely from your heart is where you want to go with this. When you do something nice for someone else you are coming from a vibration of prosperity. You are coming from the place of LOVE. You are tapping into the higher, and good vibrations. This type of action will send out the vibration that will be attracting more and more opportunities for you to feel good.
The action does not have to be grandiose. It can be as simple as giving a person a smile, opening a door for someone, giving a child a big hug. It can be whatever will make your heart smile. It can’t be fake, because a fake act of kindness is not coming from the place of prosperity. It is coming from a place of desperation and that is not the type of vibration you want to send out.
Think about the last time you did something for someone that really made you smile inside. That really made you feel good. The simplest actions can make people feel like they are needed, that they are important, that the world is a good, kind, loving place.
Some of the things I really like doing is leaving small denomination of money in random places for people to find. I sit back and watch as people find money and start to look around at first. They can’t believe it. It can be as little as $1.00. For them it seems like it is a million dollars. There is just something about finding things you like. A quick smile comes on their face. I feel a rush when I can witness such incidences.
I also like to treat people who do not usually get the respect they deserve extra nice. In the airport in my travels if I see the bathroom attendant cleaning the place I make it a point to look at them in the eye and genuinely thank them for keeping the place clean. I make sure they really get it. It goes beyond just “thank you”. Things which do not really take much effort on my part but will go a long way in someone else’s day. It just takes a little bit of thought.

Good day and I hope you had a great week thus far. Today I pose the question not as an end all solution but to point out the characteristics that I had forgotten I had when it came to resolving conflicts. What if children ruled the world? I do this in the hope that it benefits you the reader or at the very least will make you think the next time you are in a conflict.
Let me start with a story. I was recently watching a pee wee football game. It was a very competitive and close game. Towards the end of the game, there was a flag thrown that many in the stands disagreed with and it ended up deciding the outcome of the game. Conflicts ensued, words were exchanged, lots of yelling and lots of shouting went on for another 30 to 45 minutes.
I am sure you can guess who was doing the yelling and shouting. Yup the parents on both sides. Do you know what the kids were doing? For the first 5 minutes “players” (the kids) on both teams, were mesmerized by the actions of their parents. Parents from both sides rushed the field and got in the faces of the referees. Then something amazing happened.
Both teams sat down on the field, slowly took off their helmets and shoulder pads, and gathered together and started talking, and then soon started to play random games together, or talked about their school stuff. They completely tuned out their parents, and the results of the game.
As an outsider who happened to walk up when the conflict happened I could not help be amused. The looks on the parents as they were going to their cars in the parking lot was stress, anger, concern. The look on the kids’ faces before coming in contact with their parents were joy, laughter, and harmony.
Somewhere between pee wee football, and perhaps late 9th grade we lose the perspective of conflict resolution. What is it that allows children to get upset one minute and go on playing the next minute? What an awesome skill to have. Can you imagine a world where conflict was solved by 5-8 years old, and the rest of the world was run by adults? A world where adults had no say in arguments? No say in who to go to war against? No say in whose ______ was better or worse? What an awesome world.
I think the reason why children of that age have this ability to move on, is the fact that at that age they see the world as “all possible”. If I can’t have it now, I can have it in a few seconds. I may not even want it anymore. There is no scarcity. There is nothing more important than feeling good. Does this sound familiar?
Children are natural teachers of the Universal Law of Attraction (LOA). How awesome is that? Yet as a father I am constantly overriding their natural instinct to just feel good. How often could I just let them be happy? How often is it really necessary for me to intervene? If I am honest with myself much less than I actually do interfere. This is a lesson for me to hold back and let my kids work it out for themselves, or to allow them an extra leeway here and there. It also makes me want to learn to behave more like a child the next time an argument comes up and think to myself, will pursuing this argument make me happy? Is it really worthwhile to be unhappy and win the argument? You have to be the judge in your case. I hope this makes sense to you. As always please feel free to comment on my Facebook page and leave me tweets, and follow me on Twitter. Till next week, to your success.
