I like to pay

I like to pay significant money for high-quality work.

It feels good to contribute to creators who I want to encourage.

I want them to be around longer, and to be doing well.

In general, I would prefer not to buy from them when they are having a sale, I want to pay full price.

I have been deeply grateful for clients who have chosen to pay full price when they didn’t need to, and it felt great to be seen in that way. It changed my consciousness about what is possible.

I like to focus on quality before price because that’s how I like to be treated also.

My income possibilities are always limited if my generosity is limited.

Our ability to give love will always be linked to our ability to receive love.

I can feel my genuine generosity levels increasing as I become more of myself.

And to be clear, I am not being nice for the sake of what is “right” or “being a good person”. These moralistic sentiments are the opposite of living impulses. They are inherited robotic momentum.

True living generosity is a wellspring of creativity, of intent, of blessings without any desire for taking credit.

Pride has kept me from expanding. Expanding my creative essence beyond what the inherited version of “doing the right thing” can rationally accommodate.

Pride has kept me from wanting to truly support the wellbeing of other people.

Pride has drowned out my compassion, primarily compassion for myself in having needs which fell outside of the convenient image I have desired to project.

The Pride of Being a Good Person has convinced me to be more available than I truly desire to be, which of course placed me into social situations which were not harmonious and uplifting to my being.

Pride has kept me from making impact, because of my inability to acknowledge impact.

It is such a humbling process to have the rug ripped out from under me, especially when I interpret this as life’s generosity of reflection.

People pay good money for such experiences, which life frequently offers for free – just without the framing we need to see it as an opportunity.

Thank you ?
