Action + Inspiration = Magic

Action + inspiration = magic. Action on its own, well, not much magic comes out of that. Inspiration all by itself, again, not much magic comes out of that. You want incredible, mind-blowing magical experiences. I like to call them unexpected, unexplainable, good fortune. How do you get there?

You need to work to get into an inspired state. What does that mean? Inspiration is imbued with the spirit to do something. So, in order to be imbued with the spirit to do something, you need to work to get all the junk out of your head. This is the work that I do with people on the drunk monkey. Then you’ve got to define the actions that you are going to take. When I’m working with someone who already has a powerful skill set, I support them in getting out of pushing and forcing and manipulating; getting out of the fear that it’s not going to happen. When you do that, you get into this inspired state, and you get clear on the vision.

When you do that, you add your skills, your action and your inspiration; put them together. Bam, things just take off, and you can double, triple, quadruple the kinds of results that you’re getting now. I highly recommend that you focus on what you’re good at and that you remove all of the negativity that is standing in the way of your true inspiration, and magic will happen in your life.

Here is an Example of a Life-Gasm

Are Spiritual People Losers?

Do spiritual people have to be losers? No, they don’t.

One of my clients said to me, “Matthew, if I get too spiritual, then I’m going to find that I don’t want to work anymore, and I don’t want to be with my family, and you know I’m not gonna live up to my responsibilities.” But that is just not true! The exact opposite is true. As you develop your spirituality, the belief in the unseen forces of life and the meta-physical understanding and appreciation, your fear starts to disappear. And when your fear starts to disappear, you become incredibly responsible, effective, and powerful.

I highly recommend that you take on spirituality and fostering your beliefs in your spirituality because it is going to make you a more productive and effective person in our society.

Relationship Issues Stem From a Lack of Acceptance

So many of my clients come to me and they’re having relationship issues. And it turns out that they don’t actually love the person that they’re with. They love the probability that the person represents. When they got together with the person they thought to themselves, “You know, this person has such possibility. If they would just be X, Y, and Z, well, it’s gonna be so amazing. They’re on their way. I’ll help them. I’ll change them. I’ll fix them.”

That’s a recipe for a disaster relationship. If you are in a relationship thinking that someday the person’s going to change and then they’re gonna become better, you’re going to be in a relationship where you’re miserable. The game for you is to learn to accept who that person is now, exactly as they are, with no need for them to change. And when you do that, everything will start to change. They will completely begin to shift.

I was speaking to a client today, and she was saying, “Ah, my husband, he’s so lazy and he’s this, that,” etc. So I told her “All I want you do is take time every single day and make a list of five things that you really appreciate about him.” So, she did that for a week. Well, guess what happened? Suddenly his whole attitude changes. His behavior changes. He begins to shift. He’s more interesting. He’s more exciting. He’s more productive. He’s more all the things that she wanted him to be. He started becoming all of that when she shifted into a state of acceptance.

Are you a Casualty of Positivity?

Are you a casualty of positivity? So many people are. “Matthew, I am positive, and I do all the positive things to make myself as super positive as I possibly can, and my life sucks; now what?” Most people don’t realize that positivity is the result of a particular point of view. You might be able to act positively, but underneath it if you are resisting the world, if you’re judging, assessing and evaluating people; if you’re judging yourself; if you’re making yourself wrong for making others wrong; if you’re resisting the world, you’re never going to actually experience true positivity and optimism.

True positivity and optimism comes from being in a state of appreciation, understanding; taking on an initiative of kindness; being someone who is completely releasing judgment. True positivity comes when you see that the drunk monkey in your head is not even really on your side. When all of those kinds of things start to occur, you experience an inner quality. This energy just starts to take over you. This optimism that you cannot even stop begins to take over you. That is true positivity, and that occurs from a new frame of reference versus taking on positive behaviors.

The Drunk Monkey and Enlightenment

Chogyam Trungpa says, “Enlightenment is ego’s ultimate disappointment.”

I call the ego The Drunk Monkey. The Drunk Monkey believes that enlightenment is something to be achieved and will some how be “its” ultimate accomplishment. When in fact it is only the total surrender of The Drunk Monkey itself.
