Learning Life Lessons by Playing Dice

Having All You WantWhoa! Hold on a minute, you may be thinking as you look at that headline.

I was famished. I had not eaten for many hours . I began to feel anxious about not being able to get anything to eat until the next day.

Consciousness and Money

Prosperity has had only one connotation for too long -- money. The subject of money has a powerful emotional charge, equivalent to the subject of sex. Yet, we will usually talk about it only like the weather -- in general economic terms. In this age of open discussion...

Generating Abundance

by Paul, via Penelope Ashton. It is true that money should never be used as the only yardstick for accomplishment, but it is useless to pretend that is not so.

How Riches Come to You

by Wallace D. Wattles & Dr. Judith Powell.

When we say that you do not have to drive sharp bargains, we do not mean that you do not have to drive any bargains at all, or that you are above the need to deal with your fellow human beings.
