Mark Myhre here.  I write emails, among other things.

I meditate a lot, and then write about it… if it’s worth repeating.  Generally, I try to spend at least two hours a day sitting in an altered state of consciousness… but you know how it goes.  Sometimes life gets in the way.

My life used to suck mightily, but I learned how to turn it around so now it’s like I’m on a permanent vacation.  And I’m gonna do my best to help you live your ideal life.

No matter who you are, it starts with meeting your needs.

Once you learn how to meet your human needs, everything else just seems to fall into place.  You’ll never have to worry about having enough money, for example.  Or enough love.  Heck, you won’t have to worry about anything.

But I’m getting ahead of myself here.

What is it, exactly, that allows you to live a charmed, magical life once you meet your needs?

First of all, most people get it backwards.  They want to achieve or acquire some ‘thing’ so they can feel better.  I want a soulmate so I can feel more love, for example.  I want more money so I can be happier.  I want to be a writer so I won’t have to struggle at a job. 🙂

But if I let in more love first… if I allow myself be happy… if I choose to stop struggling… then it’s so much easier to get the soulmate, the money, the… well, you might not want to be a writer.  It’s not all it’s cracked up to be.  But you get my point.

We want to get some thing, so we’ll feel a certain way.

And most of all, we want to feel our human needs.  Even if we don’t know what they are.

Once we meet our needs, then we’ve laid the foundation so we can start exploring our preferences.  That’s when life gets magical and fun.  

That’s when you start getting what you want.
