Welcome to Prosperity Now where we examine
in depth Universal Laws and Principles for living our lives
in bliss and manifesting all that we desire. The structure
of the series is always in development. At this point, for
this specific topic the structure is:
1. Review of the foundation principles
guiding our Prosperity Now Tool Chest.
2. Introduction of a New Tool or a
clarification of a tool we have already introduced.
3.Introduction of a Law or a review at a deeper level of a
Law or Principle that is a key that unlocks the door
to understanding our potentiality and manifesting that
4. Today we are introducing a fourth part
of our weekly series. At this point a number of people have
been developing their Prosperity Tool Chest and we will
begin to address questions about the Tool Chest, including
the Five Wishes worksheet.
If you attending a live session at this
point we will pause and move toward the feeling of
diminishing all distractions and opening our energy paths to
the gifts that are being delivered when we proceed. If you
are reading this, there is a recording of the live session
and you are encouraged to meditate and achieve for you what
we have for the people in the live session.
Isn't the technology that allows us to
share this experience with the world marvelous. I encourage
you to be grateful for all the tools that help us realize
our unlimited potential

Part 1: The Prosperity Now Tool Chest
There is only one possible result when
you use The Prosperity Now Tool Chest -only one: You will
manifest your dreams and desires. Actually , The Universe
will deliver more than you ever imagined.
The foundation belief of the Prosperity
Now Tool Chest. is: God, Being, Divine Energy, the Source is
infinite. God is Divine Love. Divine Love had no score card
of right and wrong, Divine Love doesn't recognize sex, good
feelings, bad feelings, color. Divine Love is pure energy.
God is within all of us and as a result we have no
In the physical plane we have three states: first there is
our Divine State. This is the state of God within.
Next we have the state of Inspiration. In
the physical plane we have unlimited potential by the
connection to our Divine State. Our inspired state is
connected to God and we are on purpose. We also manifest all
our dreams and desires from the state of Inspiration which
is the "direct connect" channel to God.
The third state is where we have the most
challenges in physical plane and that is our conscious mind.
Our ego which we were gifted with along with our Divine Self
works on our conscious mind which is opposite of our Divine
Self. I believe the ego is the basis for the idea of good
vs. evil and sin, condemnation, hell vs. heaven, and all the
negative energies like anger, anxiety, stress, fear, hate,
Prosperity Now is all about helping us
live in an inspired state. When we live in an inspired state
we give no energy to ego and it dissolves. All that is left
is our inspired self and bliss.. The Prosperity Tool Chest
is our guidance system to living inspired, living on
The third state is memory which is a
record of all of our experiences and all of our ancestor
experiences. It is also directly connected to our
subconscious self. Memory is the ultimate tool of the ego.
Since we operate at the conscious level and constantly try
to rationalize all the events we manifest, we say "how could
I possibly be responsible for that or that" The answer I
believe lies in the receptors of our subconscious which are
millions of times greater than what we absorb at the
conscious level which becomes conscious memory. So
normally we look outward for excuses instead of inward for
reasons and we are confused.
When we develop our own Prosperity Tool
Chest we are clearing the clutter that gives rise to
confusion and brings clarity to living an inspired life and
not a life of desperation.
There is just one other very important
point: Why do any of this? What is the goal you want to
manifest from paying attention to any of this?
I believe the goal is peace. It doesn't
matter if you want monetary riches, blissful relationships,
a self sufficient cave on top of a mountain. I believe that
at the soul of what we desire is peace. The peace that comes
from being on purpose. Be clear as to the reason you are
paying any attention to any of this. When in doubt, and I
believe we all have moments of doubt, we remind ourselves of
the following that I first heard from Wayne Dyer " You Have
Tried Everything Else...Now Try ME" I know for myself that
if the plan I developed from memory was working to my
satisfaction, I wouldn't be here offering what I have
discovered and what I continue to discover. Prosperity Now
does work and is working right now.
Clearing The Clutter and The Blockages
The end result is the same and I believe
there is no one way to reach it. For me there are very
strong feelings about using the way of the Prosperity Now
process. If this process makes sense for you, terrific. If
not, then discover the tool that works for you the
best. Whatever you use, I suggest the tool should accomplish
for you what the Prosperity Now Tool Chest is accomplishing
for for me, which is to align the energy of of thought with
Divine Wisdom and Love. When in alignment we are inspired
and know we are on purpose - the purpose of our being in the
Most of Prosperity Now is about clearing
the blockages to all the feelings that we want to
manifest...the blockages to our purpose. The reason we spend
time on the blockages is because by clearing these blocks we
open our energy path to God. We connect to Divine Love and
the energy field within that I refer to as our Inspired Self
guides us. When we follow this guidance we are on purpose.
It is very important to remember we are
all here in the physical plane for a purpose. We are
spiritual beings with Divine Energy as our essence, and yet
our purpose for being here is our purpose for being here. I
believe each one of use has a distinct and unique purpose.
Prosperity Now is a clear path to knowing how to live on
purpose and manifest all that we dream and desire without
The Core Tool of Prosperity Now
Within The Prosperity Tool Chest (renamed
from the Prosperity Journal) there are tools including:
meditation; practicing The Power of Now; cleaning and
creating our experiences in advance. Each one of these and
more have been covered in detail or will be covered in
A Summary Review of Using Your
1. Start by Listing Your Dreams and
Desires without limits
2. Restate your Dreams and Desires as Intentions. At this
point is is very important to examine why an intention is
important to you. What feelings do you want to have as a
result of manifesting each intention.
3. Develop your commitments following the example worksheet
from The Five Wishes. A commitment is a result of answering
the question: "Imagine you are on your deathbed and I ask
you ..has your life been a success?" If any part of your
answer is no, then restate what it is that you wish you had
done in order to answer yes to the question. Then restate
your wish into a statement of already doing what it is you
wished for. Then follow your inspiration to this commitment.
4. Remind yourself to be detached from the outcome. The
specific images we visualize in connection with our dreams
and desires often appear exactly as we pictured them.
However, God delivers what is best for us and what is
delivered may be much greater that we even imagined. Be
specific, associate the feelings of your dreams and desires
already being here which they are and then let go and let
5. Remind yourself to be grateful for all that you are and
all that you have
6. Live within the Dynamic Laws of Prosperity. The primary
ones at this point are The Law of Forgiveness and the Law of
Giving and Receiving.
7. Use your Prosperity Journal daily. Intend your day in
advance. Align your daily intentions with your list of
Dreams and Desires and Commitments.
8. Once a week review your Dreams and Desires and add to the
list and note entries that may have decreased in importance
to you. Give yourself a grade as to how you are doing
particularly on achieving your commitments.
Part 2: The Power of Now
This is perfect example of valuable
guidance showing up at exactly the right time. Recently I
took a day trip to visit some friends about 100 miles south
of my home. So I thought it was good time to see what
audible books I had downloaded and never listened to. In an
instant I noticed the book The Power of Now. I began
listening to the book during parts of my drive to and from
my friend's place.
In the first 5 minutes of listening to
that book I knew how perfectly it fit into Prosperity Now
and The Prosperity Tool Chest. I also remembered I had
purchased the hard copy of the book and could not explain
why I had not read beyond the first couple of chapters. Now
I know - I was not ready - until now. And now you are ready
to see how the Power of Now fits so perfectly with
Eckhart Tolle the author of The Power of
Now, demonstrates how being in the moment, being in the now
is a direct connect to our Being which is the God within all
Let's examine this idea of being in the now. In the literal
meaning of the idea, it is impossible to be thinking of the
past and it is impossible to be thinking of the future when
you are now. Now means you are totally focused on everything
you are experiencing at the moment. Light, air, temperature,
surroundings ... you get the idea. These are natural areas
of our attention when we start thinking of being in the
moment. But what Eckhart is saying is similar to Wayne
Dyer's guidance "observe the one who observes" Go within and
observe. Be in the now with your breath, you skin, your
movement or no movement. Be deep in the now.
If you are driving your car - be in the
now. If you are preparing food, be in the now. If you are
showing appreciation to those who have provided you
electricity, phone and other service by paying them what you
agreed to pay, be in the now. If you are meditating,
intending in your Prosperity Tool Chest, be in the now.
Think about this - is it possible to feel
stress if you are observing yourself in the now? Is it
possible to feel angry, anxious, frustrated? I don't believe
so because these are feeling of the mind in cooperation with
the ego from a view of conscious memory.
Please pay close attention to this:
Prosperity Now is not about an in-depth study of Quantum
Physics although we will refer to principles of Quantum
Physics from time to time. Prosperity Now is not about an
in-depth study, analysis and debate about the teachings of
very notable spiritual teachers. Although we will refer to
the teachings of great spiritual teachers from time to time.
Prosperity Now draws upon Universal Laws and the Spiritual
Guidance that has been handed down through the ages and
proven to give us The Prosperity Tool Chest so we can simply
manifest peace by being on purpose every minute of every
You will not find us debating our arguing
view of philosophers or religious leaders. You will find us
focusing consistent on a limited number of laws and
principles that make huge difference in our lives on the
physical plane. If you read all the pages of several books
on The Power of Now I believe you come away with the idea
that by being in the now you are connected to God and you
living in bliss. Now where have you heard that as a goal
How is it that being in the Now results in
us being in our inspired state?
How can we manifest our dreams and desires
by being in the Now?
My entire purpose for developing
Prosperity Now is to bring clarity of understanding to my
life. As I do this I share this journey with anyone who
seeks. I do this because I have found a gap - a least there
is a gap for me. As I read the books of modern day mystics
and the guidance by historical spiritual leaders I find
myself thinking one of two ideas. First there is acceptance
of the material - it makes sense to me. Then there is the
opposite. But nowhere except one place have I been guided to
a tool that helps me transform my life. The idea of The
Prosperity Tool Chest came from Sandra Anne Taylor's book
Quantum Success. Her book is action oriented and I align
with life changing action.
The primary difference in what Sandra
offers in her book and what we are doing now is the process.
I believe very few people ever do what Sandra suggests. Why
is that? Well there are pages and pages of Success Journal
entries suggested by Sandra. For some that is wonderful and
I always say please use the tools that work for you. The
goal is the outcome which is peace. How you get there is not
important. Just get there.
The Prosperity Tool Chest is simple. We
address why it works when we review the foundation
understanding of Divine Energy being the Source and God
within all of us. We then understand the different
approaches to explaining what blocks inspiration. Dr Len in
Zero Limits explains it as memory and advises cleaning the
influences on our conscious and subconscious self. Eckhart
Tolle in his book The Power of Now writes about how our mind
is our biggest obstacle to our connecting to the Being
So here are two people saying the same
thing. Essentially our conscious and subconscious self is
the basis for our perception of time - time past and time
future. When we operate with the incessant focus on the past
and the future we drive ourselves nuts. This is not hard to
understand at all. If you are in doubt, simply observe your
thoughts. Are there any in the Now? Rarely I'll bet!
This is why many people who say they want to be on the
enlightened path meditate. I think mediation is wonderful
and we use it in Prosperity Now at the start of many of our
Our opportunity is to go beyond mediation,
and live in the now because in a meditative state we are not
using our talents to help ourselves and help others in the
physical plane. In the meditative state we are listening to
God then we move forward and act from a posture of
Or do we? I believe we move from a
meditative state to one of mind clutter. All the noise of
the past and what we are thinking of for the future bursts
through soon after we move from a meditative state.
Prosperity Now is a program focused on
practical every minute tools to help us realize our pure
potentiality and that is achieved when we function in the
Now. When we function in the Now we are totally appreciative
of everything we encounter. We live the attitude of
gratitude. We have manifested the Law of Forgiveness.
We are Divine Love and the Law of Giving and Receiving is a
natural part of our being.
The answers for me to the questions are as
1. How does Being In The Now result in us
living in a state of Inspiration? A. The clutter, the
blockages are removed and the Divine Energy within us
clearly flows. When Divine Energy flows without being
sidestepped by all the negative, useless, feeling created by
our mind working from memory we are inspired.
2. How does Being In The Now result in us
manifesting our dreams and desires? We already know
everything in the Universe that we desire is already here
for us. In fact we know what God wants for us is far greater
than what we dream and desire. Since the fulfillment of our
dreams of desires is already here, we are blocking the
manifestation of the energy that allows us to experience
what it is we intend. Being In The Now means we give no
energy to the past except when an experience serves us now.
It means we give no energy to the what if's unless we
specifically consider the what if's in relation to
manifesting an inspired direction. This means when
evaluating alternatives, we already know the answer as to
the direction we should take. The clarity is clouded by the
noise of our mind. Being In The Now clears the path to
Divine Energy and Inspiration. How do we know? We just do.
The Prosperity Tool Chest Assignment
The Easy Part.
Simply enter your intention to be in the
Now every moment of your day. Sure, intend how you will move
through your day: talking with people, doing your work,
cleaning, laundry, eating and now intend you do all these
things totally focused on being in the present. When I said
it was easy it is. It is a daily part of your intending
process that is now a part of your life manifest at your
Prosperity Tool Chest. You don't have to overanalyze, you
don't have to study all the books, simply be in the present.
Intend to not let the noise, the clutter that comes from the
organ of your body we call mind cloud or block the God
within. Let Go and Let God!
The Hardest Part
The hardest part is where you are at now for that is the
furthest distance from Being in the now all the time. It
only gets better from this point. If you want it to - it
An Example of The Opportunity
It is no secret I really enjoy running the beaches of
Gulf near my home in Florida. I thought I was getting pretty
good at appreciating my environment there - Being In The
Now. Since focusing on Being in The Now I felt running on a
beach would be a good place to demonstrate Being In The Now.
What I discovered was how many times I noticed myself
somewhere else even though where I was is one of my most
When it was time to leave, I concluded I
probably was in the Now maybe 10% of the time. What was
distracting me: professional challenges, plans for the rest
of the weekend including developing this material for the
Tuesday night session. So imagine my focus when I am
not at a place I am particularly ecstatic about. Try this
for yourself. Don't become upset or disappointed. I suggest
looking at the opportunity for clearing energy blocks by
being in the Now.
Part 3: Examine a Universal Law
In this session we will explore further
the Law of Paradoxical Intent which was first examined in
the session on Commitment. The reason for additional time on
this law is that I believe all of us to one degree or
another has moments of desperation thinking. The stronger
the desperation thoughts, the more likely it is we will
block or reject exactly what it is we are trying to attract.
Alternatively, we are likely to
attract more of what it is that we trying to get rid of. For
example, focusing on losing weight, means you have to
attract weight to lose it. Focusing on solving a drinking
problem, smoking problem, drug problem, even a prescription
medication problem means you attract that which you are
wanting to be rid of.
So what is the guidance here, what do you
do each day. Life is not about being on a diet, life is not
about avoiding harmful substances. Life is about being
energized, on purpose, being secure in who you are,
combining your unique talents to optimize who you are. When
we are in that state we best serve the physical plane of the
The one person I have the opportunity to
observe every week is Rev. Temple. 90% of the time she
delivers a message that resounds with me. 30% of the time
she delivers a message that rocks my world. Is the message
or the delivery? Several weeks ago she delivered a powerful
message and I felt blessed to be in the presence of such
Divine Inspiration. Does she feel different on one Sunday
vs. another. Of course she does, as her spirit is housed in
a physical body with the challenges just like the rest of
us. But when she speaks, any challenges diminish as she is
On a daily basis I observe myself. How do
I feel? What is my energy level? No matter how I feel, when
I sit down to prepare for the next Prosperity Now session, I
lose track of time. I am also getting better at recognizing
what I should be doing more of and less of to feel terrific
all the time. The number one opportunity and I'll bet it is
the same for you is my thinking. I know if my thinkin is
stinkin I am not going to feel well. Guess what the number
one tool I use to help me - yes it is my Prosperity Tool
Chest. Like I recommend to you I write how I intend to be
that day in as much detail as possible and address my
intentions in light of my dreams and desires. Like you I am
not examining myself and addressing the deathbed question "
Steve has your life been a success" and if you are not
satisfied with any part of it what would you do different?"
The source of this information is the book
Quantum Success by Sandra Anne Taylor. Sandra's work gave me
the idea of the Prosperity Now Journal. Every book mentioned
in the Prosperity Now series is featured in the
Prosperity Resource Books section of the Prosperity Now
The Law of Paradoxical Intent has taken me
a little time to fully appreciate as it necessary to think
in opposite terms. Hopefully for you it will be easier to
naturally understand. From Susan's book: "The Law of
Paradoxical Intent reflects the Law of Magnetism
(Attraction) in warning that you will only get a return on
your negative energy. If you are desperate to make something
happen, that repulsive vibration with push it away, turning
away the very people and situations that might bring your
desired outcome. Your desperation therefore creates the
paradox - or the opposite - of your original intention,
leading you to failure instead of success."
If you are living in desperation, you are
not living in happiness. The Law of Paradoxical Intent
further clarifies the Law of Detachment. Our goal is to live
in peace, happiness and prosperity now. If we defer these
feelings and "embrace misery about tomorrow's uncertainty,
you shut down your willingness to receive now."
Now let's look at some practical things here so we agree on
how to work through periods of quiet desperation.
Step 1. Recognize those areas of your life where you maybe
coming from a bit or a lot of desperation. Use your
Prosperity Now Journal to make notes as to what areas of
your life you may have some desperate thinking.
Step 2. Match up your dreams and desires
with that desperation list. Now recognize the areas of
desperation is the Law of Paradoxical Intent at work.
Recognize that your desperate thinking is blocking you from
Let's pause and comment on desperate
thinking. It is very important to evaluate all areas of your
life and expose those area where your thinking is in fact in
martyr mode. I am giving up my good now in hopes of
receiving it later. You may not realize you have desperate
thinking until you examine your belief systems in the areas
of health, wealth, relationships, work, spirituality etc.
Step 3. Begin using your daily
Prosperity Now Journal entries to remind yourself that you
don't need what you desire to be happy and that you are
absolutely capable of being happy right now just by changing
your state - your thoughts. This is not giving up on
your dreams and desires, it is simply releasing the urgency
associated with them. Susan details an outstanding example
of this in her book when she talks about the experience of
being a published author for the first time.
Step 4 Remember we create everything in
our lives. It is also true we can release people and things
that do not line up with our value system.
Susan summarizes The Law of Paradoxical
Intent this way
"The Law of Paradoxical intent points our
the underlying paradox of personal achievement: You can
get what you want by knowing that you don't need it to be
happy! It forces you to shift your focus from desperate
intention to a peaceful pursuit. Never send out the
energy that you are willing to wait to be happy - just that
you are willing to wait for the goal. Needing a particular
achievement before you can live with peace and joy creates a
desperate energy that is absolute poison to the resonance of
success, so be clear about your intentions and fearless in
your motivations. Pursue your goals because you want them to
enhance an already happy life, not because you'll be
miserable without them."
She also writes " Let yourself weave
your future with positive energy, creative consciousness and
pure intention with no conflicts about all things. Never
obsess about one option or solution, and let the desperation
go. When your major goal is to live with optimism and trust,
your other desires will be met."
At this point I suggest to you that you do
not want to miss next week. The session will be amazing and
will rock your world - I promise.
Part 4: Questions and Group Discussion
As a reminder: you can read the books, go
to the classes, attend church, but if you don't advance
yourself to live on purpose inspired by connecting to our
Source, it is unlikely you will live in peace, happiness and
bliss. I am sure there are many ways to tools that help
accomplish the goal of living on purpose and being at peace
knowing you are on purpose regardless of anything that is
going on around you. For The Prosperity Tool Chest clearly
works. If you use this tool and I mean really use it there
is only one possible outcome - the Universe will deliver all
that you dream and desire. Let's pause and I ask each
of us to be very focused on any questions that are asked and
go to the Source for clarity.
The following is from
Stand For God
and is presented to you here:
I wish for you and for myself to to realize
and live with the understanding that I am totally
responsible for everything in my life - everything and to
live a no-limit life. I Stand for God there are no limits.
The materials and resources at this site along with the
weekly meetings are all designed to help us get the points
of total responsibility and no limit potentiality.
May you experience the unlimited love, health, happiness and
prosperity that are yours for the asking.
