In fact this is the way of the universe… to grow and expand. Sure there are times of contraction. Cycles are part of life. Yet the frequencies of existence have always been expansive.
This photo from the Hubble Space Telescope shows primordial galaxies in a formative stage over 13 billion years ago.
If scientists have it right… since the Big Bang began everything has been expanding. If so this fact and the “As above, so below reality” logically leads us to believe that it is part of the universal order to expand.
How the scientists see expansion.
We can see reflections of this inherent “nature of expansion” in numerous ways… including art’s evolution over the eons.
An excerpt from a BBC article entitled “Last supper ‘has been super-sized’, say obesity experts” reflects this natural expansion.: Da Vinci’s Last Supper was painted in the 15th Century. The food portions depicted in paintings of the Last Supper have grown larger – in line with our own super-sizing of meals, say obesity experts.
The Cornell University team studied 52 of the most famous paintings of the Biblical scene over the millennium and scrutinised the size of the feast.
They found the main courses, bread and plates put before Jesus and his disciples have progressively grown by up to two-thirds.
This, they say, is art imitating life.
Professor Brian Wansink, who, with his brother Craig, led the research, published in the International Journal of Obesity, said: “The last thousand years have witnessed dramatic increases in the production, availability, safety, abundance and affordability of food.
I’m really not surprised by these findings because the size of our plates and food portions has increased
Dietician Charlene Shoneye
“We think that as art imitates life, these changes have been reflected in paintings of history’s most famous dinner.”
He says the finding suggests that the phenomenon of serving bigger portions on larger plates has occurred gradually over the millennium.
So if you feel that the world is falling apart that everything is contracting… bet on a positive future. The forces of nature are behind you with… expansion… growth…. revolution and greater abundance of… everything… for everyone.
Besides if we reach a period of true contraction… all bets will be off.
Real downturns (like a global plague or giant meteor hitting earth, or polar axis shift or nuclear war) create unpredictability. Knowledge, experience, control of assets, training, infrastructure and material resources are likely to become useless in such times. Only our inner resources will count in those times and that is another story for another time.
In recessions, downturns and reversals… bet on the come. History suggests that this is how to grow the most and you’ll be supported by the laws of nature.
This does not mean we should throw all caution to the wind. Though we should bet on expansion, we also have to survive the downturns. Though we should be positive and know that each recovery is usually better than the last… we still should maintain discipline, prepare and expand for the upswing within the confines of our individual financial circumstance. The trick is to know when the downturn is done and… if possible… to be accumulating during the downturn which is generally the time of best value.
Recently, I spoke at an International Living seminar in Quito Ecuador. Almost 400 delegates were there.
Every seminar has its own unpredictable, peculiar flavor. This was a congress with many attendees talking about how the US banking system was shutting down and how some conspiracy or another was about to take over the world.
I soon had the feeling that many of the delegates had run away from the US to hide in Ecuador.
What a mistake so I decided to try and change that feel!
My speeches usually start with a bit for formality… the blue blazer guy on the podium.
Soon though, I get that coat off and get down on ground zero close to those who are sharing this time with me.
“Don’t come to Ecuador or anywhere…. to run away. Come looking for the delights and opportunity.”
This was the story we shared. This is my 42nd year of international investing and business. Going global is fun… exciting…. filled with profit and adventure. Plus traveling to new places expands horizons. There have been the Chicken Littles every year I have been in business saying the sky is about to fall.
It’s still up there and it is expanding.
After my speech, I was surprised at how many delegates thanked me for this positive message.
Whether you are in business or are an investor… bet on the come. Everything in the universe suggests that better times really are ahead. Those who believe this and act on it are most likely to profit.
Here are what delegates had to say about our last course.
Had a great time at the “Super Thinking course” in Mt Dora. See you at this Multi-Currency course.
Another delegate said:
I just wanted to thank you for the Spanish and Super Thinking class in Mt Dora. I was not sure what to expect but it was a lot more than I expected. Both you and Merri put everyone at ease so the experience was both enjoyable and educational.Your knowledge and intelligence opened many doors for me personally.For that I will be forever grateful.I am looking forward to some of your other classes.Thank you again
The common factor? Delegates who come to one of our courses attend more.
