Something About Nothing
Buddhists study nothing because they have found that you must know nothing before you can know or create anything.
I have devoted most of my time over the last five years in the study of the principals of manifesting. Thoughts are manifested into physical being with no conscious effort on your part. It is automatic, and at some level a thought is always manifested physically in time and space.
The steps to creation are very simplistic; they are thought, word and deed. What the issue in creating what you desire on demand appears to be, is that you think too much. You are overly concerned with the process, rather than the results and you want to take control of it.
Your brains are constantly buzzing with activity with over 65,000 thoughts per day being processed. Most of those thoughts are old business and do not pertain to what is at hand. Over the years you allow your brains to fill with needless thoughts and you generate an over abundance of background noise. Because your awareness is being focused on what is being processed, you have little control of it. Your awareness is not on the correct step in the process. If you are constantly looking to see if you have what you wanted; you are creating the experience of not having.
The fundamental key to the secret of manifesting what you desire is thought control. Know what you desire and it is yours. Think about what it is and you may get something else. You must be perfectly clear in your mind what it is that you desire or you will not get it.
For example, if I told you that I want to be happy, this very statement produces unhappiness, because I "want," therefore I have not. The thought of happiness produces happiness, not the wanting.
If I were to say that thirty one million dollars would make me happy, I would be incorrect. I cannot make myself happy. I can think happy then do happy things. Emotion follows thought. I might think that a lot of money will make me happy, but all I will create is a lot of money and there may not be any happiness. The money does not create the happiness, the thought does.
To create more effectively on a conscious level, you need to be in touch with your thoughts. In order for that to happen you need to quiet your thoughts and think about nothing. You must decide whether you want the money or the happiness. You can have the happiness without the money and you can have the money without the happiness or you can have both. Money simply is not an ingredient in making happiness.
Because there are so many thoughts racing through your brain, you need to clear them out as best you can so that you can focus more clearly on what it is that you really want. If you want the money so that you can prove the system works, what you will get is the experience of trying to prove that the system works.
If there was only one thought in your brain at one time and that was to create thirty one million dollars, you would experience manifesting that exact amount of money. It may not be clear in your mind what you are trying to do. You may be thinking that you want thirty one million dollars, but you will settle for less so you will try to trick the system and end up with nothing. On top of that thinking there is the big one, "THIS CANNOT WORK," "I can not just create thirty one million dollars out of thin air, no one can," and of course you would be correct because your current thought about it not being possible just shot down any chances of creating it.
You may have noticed that Buddhism and other beliefs rely heavily on affirmations, prayer and contemplation in order to still the mind. It is to get closer to ones purpose, know your purpose and you will experience it.
Simplicity and the study of nothing are key factors in the creation of what it is that you desire. The study or wanting of things brings more confusion and less desirable results. In your study or quest for happiness, know what it is you desire first and it shall be yours.

Why Does it Take So Long to Slow Down
Why do we wait so long, before we start thinking about whom and what we are? Why does it take a lifetime of living and struggling before we begin a meaningful search for our truth? I don't believe that is necessary.

A Little Blessing Changes Everything
"We're on a one-game winning streak!" That's what freshman Dawan Boxley said after his basketball team, the Rutgers-Camden Pioneers, beat Bloomfield College 77 to 72, snapping a five-year, 117-game losing streak. Imagine losing every game for five years; how depressing that must have been for the team, the coach, and the entire school! But what a joy when that buzzer sounded and game 118 turned out differently.

Two Choices That can Make Next Year The Best Year of Your Life
What if there were just two choices you could make to insure that next year would be wonderful? There actually are, and these choices are quite simple in concept, yet not easy to do. They are not things you do on the outside, such as exercising your body (which is always a good thing to do!) but ways of thinking and being on the inside. These have to do with your attitude and your intent.
Anything That?s Worth Doing, Is Worth Doing Poorly
Yes you got it. You read it correctly. We're not out of our minds. We really are saying that "anything that's worth doing is worth doing poorly". When we found this quote by Joachim DePosada on the web site: The Gary Halbert Letter, it struck such a huge cord. It made such immediate sense to us. The more we looked the more we realised that our lives were built around this quote. What about yours?

Patience - The Antidote for Stress
Why is it so difficult to hold steadfast to a commitment to the very thing we desire? I'm sure you've had the experience of challenging your client with something to do, or to be, in service of moving them closer to their heart's desire. As you reconvene again and again, you note that the client can't seem to stay committed to the steps that will realize their dreams. Certainly the age-old response is fear--but perhaps there is more going on.

Quotable Quotes Are Nothing More Than Flowery Words
Quotable quotes are nothing more than flowery words... And anyonegiven enough time and cognitive power anyone can put onetogether. Yes, they may strike a chord or make you feel good,but their true value resides in what they encourage and exciteyou to put into action. Ideas not followed by action have verylittle power.Here is one for you: "Only that which is eternal has any truevalue." Now you think about that quote and in some circles itmight be considered pretty quotable. So does this mean that ifthis online message lasts for eternity that it has true value?Actually the author is attempting to convey something moreprofound (I happen to know him pretty well).The only thing which is eternal (quotable or non-quotable) isthat which lies within you -- your spiritual core. This is yourtrue identity and therefore anything that cannot stand the testof infinity is but a passing fancy. What does this have to dowith quotable quotes? Well a lot..hang with me.If you are focusing on the infinite then you must take theaction necessary to strengthen and escalate the Power of theInfinite within yourself. The next logical question may be,"Well how do increase this power within?"All great teachers, sages and saints since time immemorial havetold us in one-way-shape-or-fashion that the power to win inyour life comes quite simply from two things. You mustconstantly:Study, understand, and immerse yourself in thatwhich brings you power.Avoid all that weakens you.Unfortunately, you live in a world that will inundate you withthat which weakens. Increasing your Infinite Self then becomes amatter of critical action; and here is where we tie thisconversation into quotable quotes.The fact that you are alive in this century guarantees that youare highly exposed to negative input from the media, friends,school systems, family members and various other energyvampires. Now while you may not find all of above factors as negative inyour life, we can be pretty well assured that unless you avoidtelevision, newspapers and magazines all together (something youmight strongly consider), you have at minimum some negativeenergy to contend with. If you are barraged by negative mediainput on a daily basis you must actively seek input to thecontrary just to stay at equilibrium.. much less get ahead ofthe energy game. Enter quotable quotes.The infamous quotable quotes could indeed be a part of youraction plan to offset negative input from other sources.Ultimately you will become that which you think about all daylong, for thoughts breed action and actions breed results. Read the quotes as well as other pieces of inspiration andpower; and then most importantly...act boldly in accordance withthis line of thinking and pull yourself from the quagmire ofcollective limitation. You were born into greatness but havebeen conditioned into mediocrity -- and you can quote me on thatone.
