Meaning and Marketing - The Trigger


In previous articles under "Meaning and Marketing", we havelearned about the verb "To Be" and that the name of God isI AM.

Stephen Hawkings, the world's greatest mathematician, and authorof several books on science and the Universe, was more or less a bum during his university years in England and some yearsthereafter. I think he liked to drink.

Everybody knew he had the GIFT and so did he. He just wasn'tusing it. But then he contracted Lou Gehig's Disease and thatgot him moving.

What was the difference? Hawkings now faced a MUST and for him --he knew -- it was now or never. And this MUST has kept himamazingly alive for many years.

Hawkings was facing a Moral Imperative!

Scarlett O'Hara in the book and movie, "Gone with the Wind", isanother example. However, she didn't have a MUST, not really. She manufactured one. Her's and Margaret Mitchell's words will ring out forever - - "By God, I'll never be hungry again!"

Or did she say, "I'll never eat radishes again!?"

Her link was "Tara" - the Land. But, of course, her link was morethan that. It was Ashley Wilkes. She could care less about RhettButtler.

Whatever her true links are, they were extremely active in herconscious and sub-conscious will and Scarlett literally stormsthe gates of Heaven with her demands and I AM is impressed.So are we.

Never mind that she is a louse. In the end she will find her true SELF and, to her amazement, her true love -- Rhett Butler. So will you.

If you don't face a MUST, you can always manufacture one -- if you want to, as Scarlett did. Don't be fooled. She could have gotten by on radishes, pinto beans, and settled for much less, as most of her neighbors did after the Civil War. She could have lived a very ordinary and miserable life for herself and future family. But that's not what she wanted, was it? That's not what she willed.

A MUST is a Moral Imperative. It's now or never. You've got to get moving and you know it.

What is it you want? Why were you born? What is your destiny? You can only know and find out by allowing your "wheels to hit theroad."

Now let's pretend YOU ARE 10 pounds of Pure Uranium and fashion you into a perfect solid ball about 5" in diameter and let's surround you in an amazingly well fortified container and packyou in a powerful explosive.

When the explosive is triggered, the force of the explosion willbe directed inward and not outward and compact you at all pointsa fraction of a second about 5 tons per pixel. The Chain Reaction

is then ignited within the sphere of YOURSELF. After that, it's 10,000,000 degrees Fahrenheit in all directions.

Now this is an almost infinitely tiny explosion compared to our Mrs. Patricia Smith ("Eye of the Storm" Article) whose body plus the Door at the speed of light squared was the size of a proton with a mass of 239lbs. I AM used her to fashion a brand new universe. What will I AM do with you?

Do you and I really have that kind of power? Yes, we do, if we gain weight.

But what seems impossible physically is always possible in our WILLS and in our Imaginations - if we want it to be. And that'sall it takes.

Go ahead. Deny yourself your WILL and your Imagination. But to do so is an excuse, and an excuse is always immoral. And so many people choose to be immoral: not having any direction, meaning,or purpose, and so they just get by from day to day. That's allthey do. It's a smart, safe, but a sad way to live.

So if you are in the category of someone who wishes to live by your Will and Imagination -- and I am assuming that you are -- what are you going to use for your explosive material?

Use your Links! I have dozens, even hundreds. Here are some ofmy links and I am showing you this just to show you what a linklooks like:

"The King of the Golden River" by John Ruskin, a short story whichI read in the 2nd. grade;

The death of Ben in Thomas Wolf's book, "Look Homeward Angel".

Task Force FAITH on the East side of the Chosin Reservoir in theEpic Korean War Battle, Nov. 27 to Dec. 8, 1950.

Movies:

"Moll Flanders" - a model of endurance and true character.

"Solaris" - You will know the price of LOVE.

Music:

"A Banquet of Voices", The Cambridge Singers"Vivaldi Concerti" and Baroque Trumpet Music, Nimbus Records,Nimbus Records #7012

My own real life stories:
The Roller Derby
The Horseshoe Tournament
The Fat Man at the Swimming Pool
The Mile Run
The Penny - (3 very recently found)

People - My Heroes...I have dozens and so do you. But how about this one forstarters:

MyhighestAndMyBest.com/LanceArmstrong

Special Numbers that have meaning only for me:$17.01 & $21.01 (the ladder added in the last week)

Etc, etc, etc...

There is a story behind all my Links. These are the very bestkind of Links -- the ones with a story behind them, from yourvery own life.

BUT YOU DON'T NEED ANY OF MY LINKS. USE YOUR OWN!

Look for your own, find your own - anything that has specialmeaning for you and that empowers you. Open your eyes.They are everywhere!

Surround yourself with YOUR links to your past and present anduse them as explosives to blast yourself to a much better futurefor you and your loved ones. Click on any one of YOUR OWN linksand your will and you should arrive at the same place: YOU andyour Destiny.

YouAre.com
YourHighestAndYourBest.com

Click on these links and you should arrive or ought to arrive at your Ultimate Link:

TheKingdomofIAM.com

You don't believe in GOD? Then just pretend that God is the verb"To Be" and think of God as the way you use the verb "To Be" andall words in your language -- as the way and the means you useto communicate with others. Therefore, every time you use yourlanguage, you will be acknowledging it's true Source.

If God -- I AM -- is anything, S/he is communication. Therefore,let us not fail to communicate. After all, this is what Marketingis all about, isn't it?

NOW YOU LACK ONLY ONE THING: A Trigger!!!

The Trigger is your Moral Imperative.

What is a Trigger? A Trigger can be one of two things:(1) Someone or Something that royally angers you.(2) Someone or something that has exhilarated you and broughtto you a very special JOY.

When Jesus of Nazareth grew up in Galilee, he looked around himand saw plenty to anger him. And it is the same with you and me. When we look around us, what do we see and what do we care about?And do we not feel a similar anger sometimes?

But we can use our anger as a trigger, as many great people havealready done. There are dozens of causes that elicit our anger.Choose one and go with it and use YOUR anger as the Trigger.

But in truth, the ladder (No. 2 -- Joy) may be the best kind of trigger because it has more force and power and you might as well "go for the Gold" in your trigger. This is what manyartists have done. Goethe is just one example.

Unfortunately, LOVE as a trigger has to do with "Unrequited Love",as in the case of Scarlett O'Hara, but it is one of the mostpowerful and energizing forces in the world if you want to makeuse of it. If you don't make use of it, it can destroy you.

Whom or what have you lost that you cannot recover? Instead ofinvesting your life in sadness and regret and sometimes suicide,turn all that energy around and use it as your Trigger.

The only way you can recover what you have lost is by reformingyourself, by re-imagining yourself. When you find your true self,you will have recovered, not only what you have lost, but alsomuch more. You will be and shall become a New Creation.

Your point right now is not to succeed, but to begin. To begin,you must have a Trigger -- a Moral Imperative -- and the bestTrigger is unrequited love.

But if you don't have that, unrequited love, then the other kindwill do.

Don't be fooled by Scarlett O'Hara. When she was reaching forthe gold, she was mostly reaching for Ashley Wilks. She had a

double trigger! She had two triggers. She had both kinds.

Now that you have your TRIGGER -- YouAre.com/Ashley -- it's timeto take cover with your compatriots in your foxholes, to joinhands, and to pray.

Who is there to pull the Trigger? YOU ARE. Use your WILL.

(See Article 3: "Meaning and Marketing: The Will")

It's now Six Trillion, Trillion Degrees and the force of theblast is moving at speeds that trouble the imagination...

(See Article 2: "Meaning and Marketing: The Eye of theStorm")

Have a good life. Find yourself. In finding your TRUE SELF, youwill find your TRUE LOVE and the world in you and around you willnever be the same again.

Who knows? Your Unrequited Love may even come to visit you, butonly after you have made some money, a whole lot of money. Andthen, if you want to -- but I hope you will not want to -- youcan tell him/her where to go.

You are a Network Marketer. You do want to make alot of money,don't you? Isn't that what you want? Isn't that what you WILL?

If not, then why are you in Marketing?

Since your are in Marketing, you might as well go for the Gold.If it was good enough for Scarlett O'Hara, it's good enough forme.

And besides all that, I have some "loves" to recover. Don't you?

Go ahead! Pull the Trigger! Begin!
