Fake News? Or Fake You’s?

ActorOsho an amazing spiritual teacher, gave a talk about Fake News? Or Fake You’s?. Osho spoke about how our political system is based on lies. These politicians or liars are unfortunately rewarded and elected for the lies. They are really if ever authentically themselves.

We in society are rewarded and trained to lie. When we are children, we are told to love our mother. Society doesn’t wait for our love to come naturally. We are encouraged and feel forced to fake it. It is our duty to love our mother. We then pretend, smile, and act loving toward her. We are fake, inauthentic, we wear different masks like this in all areas of our life. We forget how to be natural. If we are in a room with our boss, we show the boss a smiling face. In that same room, at that same time, we show an entirely different face to the waiter.

Even the word personality means persona, a persona is defined as a role or character adopted by an author or an actor. We are trained by society to adopt different masks all the time. We have a different face for almost every situation, encounter, and conversation. We get so we don’t even know who we really areLukeSign_18x24_Tag1_preview

There is a second you that Ohso talks about, one that Freud taught. The unconscious you, the you of our dreams, the you that comes out when you are drunk. This you is far more authentic than the fake you that bends to every conversation. There is a third you, a Divine you, a you of pure awareness, authentic and real.  You can find it by slowing down, taking the mask off, by being vulnerable. You can find this real authentic you when we meditate.

Real estate works best when you are authentic, when you take off your masks. To buy, sell, or invest, to interact with buyers, sellers, agents, lenders, and escrows, it works best to just be you! Life works when you do you! The best way to discover the authentic you is to slow down, sit down, and meditate. The most productive thing you can do to live in your dream home is NOTHING. And, that is no FAKE news.

What are You Creating Today?

LightWhat are you creating today? This was the question Rev. Dr. Michale Beckwith, the founder and señor minister at the Agape International Spiritual Center https://agapelive.com in Beverly Hills, asked this last Sunday. This simple question was profound for me. It made me think and I hope it makes you think too. Rev Michale went on to remind us that we are all born creators, that is who we are, and what we were created to do.

This is an extremly profound truth. You were born to create, and you can create literally anything you want. God, Spirit, the Universe, the Mind, Universal Intelligence, whatever you want to call, whatever it is… Wants you to create. Let me repeat that, God wants you to create.

Dr. Beckwith went on to tell us to let go of our victim consciousness. He is saying stop pretending that you are a victim. Stop pretending that you are anything less than awesome, fantastic, with all the abilities in the world. Stop pretending that you are not complete, whole, and truly unique in every way. Know that there is no one, absolutely no one like you. You are the only you that was ever, or will ever be. And just being born, being the sperm that made it is one in something like 13 trillion. Believe it when I tell you, you are truly special.LukeSign_18x24_Tag1_preview

Rev Michal went on to ask, “What do you need?” The answer is…NOTHING.

If you can truly create anything, why not create your perfect home, sale, or rental property? Really, what is it you are creating today? Ask yourself, what do I want to create. My buddy Arron wanted a cabin in Big Bear, and he now has a beautiful cabin in Big Bear. Ask and you shall receive. Choose what it is you want to create, and it will be created. So why not create your new or NextHome… ha ha… did you like the way I threw that in there? Again, Rev Michale asks you, what are you creating today?

Intention


MagicAre you interested in the magic of manifesting whatever it is you desire? Do you believe in magic? Can one really just think of something and BAM it is a reality?  Today we are talking about intention. Setting an intention is a major influence on what and how you can attract what it is you want into your life. It truly can seem magical. You can look at it the way Albert Einstein thought of it, “There are two ways to live your life: One is as though nothing is a miracle the other is as though everything is a miracle.”

An Intention, when set and intensely thought about can and will assist you in manifesting that thing that you are thinking about into your life. The first step is to know and to be clear on what it is you want. For me, I want to have a townhome on the bluffs. The bluffs are western facing not only to the sunset (which is awesome) but also the Pacific Ocean. For me, being about to see the sunset from my own living room, bedroom, or balcony every night is a dream come true! Many days I either drive to the bluffs or the beach to see the sunset. That is a two or a five-mile drive, just to witness a sunset. LukeSign_18x24_Tag1_preview

You too can set an intention on where you want to live next. Maybe it is in Hawaii, Florida, or the south of France. You might like to retire in England or be an actor in New York City. Maybe you want to get a bigger home right where you live, or maybe scale down to something a bit smaller.

Whatever it is you desire there is magic in simply the act of setting an intention followed by a bit of action. There is a Quaker expression, “Pray and move your feet.” When you set an intention followed by action, you are a powerful force.

It was the last day of eighth grade, there was an assembly and the school gave out awards. One of the awards was for most outstanding athletic for the entire school. Bill McCadden won the award for the most outstanding athletic for all of the ninth grade boys that year. At that moment I set an intention to win it the next year. There were 716 kids in my class, assuming 50% were boys, the odds of me winning that award the next year was one in 358! Not Good Odds. I set an intention to win it the next year. I went out for every sport and did the best I could. I also kept my intention and desire to win it in my head almost every day. And exactly one year later, I walked home with that award, (a really nice trophy) and a lesson that if I set an intention and keep it in mind I can achieve that which I put my intention on.

Whatever it is you desire, a home, a dream vacation, or a mate. Set an intention and add a little action and there is bound to be some magic. Know that, “There are two ways to live your life: One is as though nothing is a miracle the other is as though everything is a miracle.”

Imagination

Albett EienstienAlbert Einstein said “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Napoleon is quoted as saying, “Imagination rules the world.” Joe Dispenza, a spiritual teacher, author, and master of the laws of the mind was hit by a truck while competing in a triathlon. He broke six vertebras and healed himself simply by using his imagination. OMG.

With Imagination you can do, have, and be anything you desire. When you stop to think about it, everything starts and came from imagination. Some caveman or cavewoman must have seen lighting strike the ground and cause a fire and imagined recreating it. Then there was fire. Someone may have tossed a trashcan lid, and then imagined the Frisbee. Walt Disney said “If you can dream it, you can be it.” A dream begins with imagination.LukeSign_18x24_Tag1_preview

If you can dream it to be it, why not dream your dream home? Just imagine what it looks like. Imagine how it feels to live there. See yourself picking up the keys and having a move in party. See who is there and hear them congratulating you on your new home that is perfect for you.

Like Einstein said, “imagination is more important than knowledge.” When you imagine whatever it is you want, including your dream home, know that if you can dream it, you can have it.

Curiosity

CURIOSTY

We can all get so much more accomplished when and if we just have a little curiosity. Nothing great ever happens without it. What if Thomas Edison wasn’t curious about how a light bulb worked? What if man/woman didn’t care about figuring out how to start a fire or invent the wheel? What if Ben and Jerry weren’t curious about how to make a better ice cream?

The world is so much better when we are curious. This also works in real estate for both buyers, sellers, and they’re agents. Without being curious one might not ever move in the first place. A person might not even think something like, “what would it be like to have a bigger better home? What would it take to move to the beach? Can David really sell our house for the number we want to sell it for?LukeSign_18x24_Tag1_preview

When I started out as a real estate agent, I was curious about what I might be able to do for my clients, where can I find them, and how can I make it happen? To be curious is a step toward action. Action that may be new, creative and rewarding.

Albert Einstein says this about curiosity, “The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he/she contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.”

Don’t be afraid to be curious. It could help you make that move you have been wanting to make, or to move you to find the home of your dreams.
