If you want to be rich, then you will surround yourself with YES men, who will agree with everything you say. If you want to be WEALTHY, then surround yourself with NO men, who will not be scared to disagree with you if they think you are doing something wrong. That is a fundamental difference between wealth and riches. The richest man in the world (Howard Hughes) surrounded himself with yes men who allowed his to starve himself to death! Howard Hughes died of “malnutrition” which is a fancy word for starvation. Yet he owned more assets than any other man in the world! Surely he can’t have starved himself to death? But that is exactly what he did. The first step towards this was to find men who loyalty was not to him, but to his money! Yes men will gladly goes against the morality of the world, their boss and themselves for money. They have no inner morality and simply agree to carry out the bosses actions, no matter how morally repugnant it is! They are toadies of the worse kind.
On the other hand, a NO man is self contained. He has his own inner morality that is not for sale. If he(/she) see their boss headed for the cliff face they’ll yell, “WATCH OUT, CLIFF FACE!!!” They may be totally wrong 9 times out of 10, but it is the tenth time when their value really shows! It takes a wealthy man to employ NO men, because he is not employing mirrors of himself, but reflections of the worlds og physical, metaphysical and spiritual morality (laws)! This is the value of NO men. They reflect the spiritual world back to their boss, so he can see reality, not simply a mirage reflection of himself and his own inner cravings.
A visitor to Henry Ford’s factory passed an office with him, and saw a man sitting on a chair with his feet up on a desk fast asleep! He turned to Henry and said, “Why don’t you fire that man?” To which Henry replied, “That man once presented me with an idea worth a million dollars (a billion dollars in today’s money), if he never has another idea, he has paid his wages for many lifetimes. But who knows he may come up with another idea!” As a wealthy man we have to leave the physical “money is exchanged for time” payment system behind and use the “money for service/ideas/value” system. This is where NO men reside. As wealthy men we have to surround ourselves with different reflections of the world. We don’t have to necessarily have to listen to then, but we have to allow ourselves to view their ideas against ours so we can test the truth of our ideas! This is the value of NO men.
No men are our own private “skunk works” too. Apparently NASA had three teams of scientists who are all given the same idea to develop independently and often they come come with three separate “only possible ways” and the best one is picked out and used. There is a saying, “wake up and smell the roses!” With NO men the saying is “Wake up and smell the S**T!!”. To test the truth we must always set up two experiments – one to build our idea, TWO to destroy our idea. If we cannot destroy it and it grows, that is a double confirmation of the truth of the idea.
This is exactly what I did in 1992 when I received the idea for the Wholistic Peace and Prosperity Network. I tried it out in my own private economy and I tried my very best to destroy the principles it was based on. The truth can never be destroyed, ever. After about three months of trials it was working and I couldn’t find any flaws in it. So I took it to an independent bank manager friend (a very rare item indeed!) and laid it out in front of him. His response was, “It seems too perfect to be true!” My response to him was, “Can you please take it home with you and try to destroy it – I don’t want to spend the rest of my life working on a false idea!” He did just that and when I went back to him he said, “No (i cannot destroy it), it is perfect and I want to join!” But I had nothing for him to join! It would take me another 19 years to have an organisation called WPPN for him to join! In that time I have lost contact with him (come back and join! Lol!)
Why did it take so long??? Because “The wheels of God Grind exceeding slow, but exceeding small!” God manifests everything in His own time. In 1992 the world was a different place from the world today. It was kept underground like a silent seed in the forest, waiting for the heat of spring to awaken it. Over the years I have seen the world move slowly (Oh, so slowly!) move towards the WPPN Concept. Today the world is in a crisis that can only be solved by WPPN. Sooner or later people will start to wake up to it and start joining in droves. At the moment we have four members (after two years) and God is whispering in my ear to expect the number to increase to 1,000 in the next 12 months. I have no idea how to achieve this, but God and I are partners are in this concept and we split the work up beteen us – 99 to1! That is, I do 1% of the work and God does the other 99% of the work! Lol! And that is about right! After all I am finite and He is infinite! He gives me little jobs to do in the business that clear the way for Him to work in peoples hearts! “All are His servants and all abide by His bidding“
So it is Good to surround yourself with NO men, independently thinkers who Know the truth of the spiritual, metaphysical and physical worlds. Once you meet and employ men like this, never let them go until God gives them something else to achieve (their own specific BEingness). If you have a violent argumenr with them, give them a months leave on full pay to let you both cool down – “parting makes the heart grow fonder“. But don’t let your anger rule your heart and head. If after a month if you can see his point of view and live with it, then take him back – it is the irritant in the oyster’s shell that manifests the pearl! You don’t actually have to LIKE your employees, but you do have to Trust them (notice the capital t!)
And the most important reason of all to surround yourself with “No men” is that they are not a reflection of yourself. It is too easy to turn into a yes man yourself and start following every “thought” without testing it. I’ll just take a snort of this drug this (evil) fellow is offering me for free! I’ll just engage in extra marital sex this young horny woman is offering me, just this once. I’ll just stop eating anything containing contaminants of the world in them (everything contains the world’s contamination!) – “Oops, I’ve starved myself to death!”
The difference between a rich man and a wealthy man is contained in one short word-BE. The rich man is rich through doing and having. The wealthy man is wealthy through BEing, doing and having. The Being method is the long, straight path. The doing and having is the quick jump off the cliff, through the brambles method to riches – whic never provide satisfactiom. The difference between the two is like a 6 course banquet of the finest foods and drinks and a six course banquet of potato crisps, sugary treats and fizzy pops! These things are okay in small doses, but 6 courses in one meal???? That is starvation by excess!
So again, I ask you – BE wealthy, surround yourself with NO men, stick to the higher laws of the universe to build yourself a “Virtuous Cycle” and work slowly (like the tortoise) towards wealth!
WPPN will help you achieve these things!
Love, Peace and Prosperity,
