Instead of asking people, “What do you do?” I often ask complete strangers, “If money were not an issue, what would you do?” (*I learn so much about a person from this simple, fun question and it prevents “small talk”!)
I have not asked myself this question in quite a while, so I thought I would ask myself, “Kelly, what would YOU do if money were not an issue?” *I am sharing my response in hopes that one day I will look back upon this simple blog and say, ”Look! I manifested ALL of THIS!”
Naturally, in Gratitude, I will start by addressing the immediate needs and dreams of my family and friends. This could be buying my sister and her family their dream home; paying-off medical bills for my mother and her partner as well as arranging home-based integrated massage and physical therapy for both of them and any other needs they may have that will make their lives more comfortable and healthy; buying Nancy a pimped-out RV *or getting her and Faud to Morocco (!!); helping a friend start her/his new dream business—basically, contributing to the DREAMS of my family and friends.
As for myself, I would buy myself an eco-friendly home/office/sanctuary, in a warm tropical setting, near the ocean and OPEN IT UP to family, friends, friends of friends, conscious community and especially to fellow healers, lightworkers, artists, musicians, nomads, caregivers, activists, dreamers, social entrepreneurs, and anyone seeking healing, refuge or to re-charge as needed, without the anxiety of compensation and without judgment. *I BELIEVE in the Law of Circulation - Flow of Giving and Receiving:
The Law of Circulation states that all things in the universe are always flowing in circulation but at an ever expanding rate. What you give to one person, you will receive from a different source. So you don’t have to give with the expectation of receiving back from the same person you give to, but knowing that it will definitely come back to you multiplied from other sources. It works according to the law of cause and effect where the universe always mirrors back to you whatever you do.
When I am not at home, at my own LightHouse (*which I will name “The Funny Farm”), I will be traveling around the world, documenting and sharing BRILLIANT ideas, products, services, systems and conscious ways of BE-ing, living, working, loving, etc. in order to educate and inspire ALL to create the lives they REALLY aspire to be living; in other words, collecting, connecting and sharing the raw materials to create a NEW EARTH—complete with new economic/business/trade structures, new governing models (*ultimately, conscious SELF-government), new ways of communicating and decision-making, etc.
While traveling, I will make sure to bring friends along as I visit some sacred sites, stay in some spa/retreat type places, participate in some outdoor adventure sports (SCUBA! SKI! etc.), research and visit intentional communities, and sample various mind-body-spirit well-being modalities; attend transformational festivals and gatherings; visit family and friends along the way; travel by BOAT as often as possible; AND DISTRIBUTE money and resources to BRILLIANT conscious Whole-istic programs, communities, organizations, entrepreneurs, engineers, businesses—basically anyONE I think has a DAMN good IDEA, service, product that will have a POSITIVE IMPACT on all levels of life on this planet.
*I hope this little exercise inspires YOU to think and perhaps write about how you WILL LIVE when money is no longer a factor in living YOUR dreams!
LIVE your bliss,
Kelly N Patterson (aka, the Goofy Guru)
