A conversation with Self/ BJ

Money

Joe:
BJ, why are some people failing to get ahead? Even chiropractors with such a powerful product struggle to survive in the health care market.

BJ:
As you have discovered the Chiropractor is the best placed professional to lead the health care revolution. But there is a cost to everything.

Joe:
So how come medical doctors are even struggling with making money? You dont see car parks full of Mercedes any more at the local hospital.

BJ:
Listen...Do you know what the most common cause of death is for youngsters? I know you do. Diarrhoea. For the love of Mary! Gastroenteritis leading to dehydration and death. We cant even get water to our babies and children. And you suffer for your bangers and mash!

Joe:
Yes I see.

BJ:
How many people have electricity access in the world? How many dont have electric light?

Joe:
...er?

BJ:
30%
Yes, a third is estimated.
My father was a firm, strict man. He would beat you for complaining like you do. I cant beat you because I am in your mind.
But I love you.
I love all my children who have the last name chiropractor. But they are people first. And people die because of human cruelty. So you see, money is abundant. Its not the substance that is lacking in your equation. You dont have it because you have to have a motivator. A reason.

Joe:
A mentor, life coach?

BJ:
Life-coach, priest, exorcist...call it whatever the damn heck you want...Why dont you just change? Because you cling to the past like a frightened puppy and dont see that NOTHING - no thing- can destroy you but your own memories and prejudice.

Joe:
Memory is the curse?

BJ:
Just care for each other. Fellow chiropractors especially. The DC/healer will be vulnerable to emotional collapse probably every ten years if s/he does not renew.
Can you see the pettiness of it?

Joe:
What?

BJ:
Your financial concerns. Motivation is a disgraceful thing. There is so much to be done, so much to discover, but they think they know it all. The universe is changing and those who see the subtleties shall survive. Be quiet...

Joe:
...and money?

BJ:
You never get off that do you? If I gave you all the money in the world what would you do. Just mess it up even more in this disgraceful mess we are in. Then there are the doom-sayers who think it all over soon. Do you think that God would even make man capable of destroying the world? Himself perhaps, but theres plenty of dirt in the universe...

Sort out the mess. The mess in you. The mess in your heart. Take care of you colleagues, be they -practors or medics...

I tell you what. Get your closest colleagues together, meet and take care of each other. Then the microcosm you create will be ‘the world’. But always remind mindful of the Judas. Damn shame he ruined that good name...Judas!

You cant destroy the world because destruction is actually rebirth, and with a focus on nothing but your own comfort, you are dead.

Joe:
So you are saying I should suffer? Or not suffer but be content with nothing?

BJ:
NO!!!!
Suffering is meaningless. You do not have to be content with NOTHING because there is plenty. Do I have to spell it out?
IF you want more, shut up, be quiet, listen, and give, give, give without expecting anything but a smile on your face. If this money things does not change then I am afraid you will be banging your head on my door again soon...... So be it.

Joe:
Not so much me but for people around me and the world in general

BJ:
You are the world...bang away.

The Struggle

Joe:
BJ, what of the constant struggle? To make ends meet, to balance service with reward?

BJ:
What reward is it you desire?

Joe:
Financial freedom

BJ:
To do what?

Joe:
Anything

BJ:
Why?

Joe:
To be happy?

BJ:
Why are you not happy?

Joe:
I am

BJ:
Then why need money?

Joe:
I have debt

BJ:
Thats not my fault, is it! (hearty laugh)

Joe:
You got me into this! Sorry...

BJ:
Debt is but a measure of faith. Someone has faith in you and gives you money. That you can pay them back through your prosperity is a gift of service. I had so much money it never was an issue. We lost it. We gained it. In the end I did not care.
People who have money do it in their sleep. Its nothing. Its why you do it, not HOW. The how is academic. You can learn that. People who make money have secrets and lessons but they are not profound, generally
They are so simple most of us do not engage in it. First thing is to define your product and stick the hell by it until it shakes loose the foundations of everyone you meet or see. Just by them observing you.

Joe:
But its a different world now to yours, BJ?

BJ:
True, but the new way is personal conviction of silence. Let the product speak aloud. You stay out of the way because you dont need to interfere. We are nothing. However, and I emphasise this, you must, when called, speak in no uncertain terms for the product. What is the Dalai Lama selling? Why do you listen to him?

Joe:
He represents an.....alternative to the misery?

BJ:
Precisely. So do you. More on money next time. I get tired since I gave up those cigars!
