Seeds IX, 26
Unfortunately, turning over a new leaf on foolish consistency can mean that we must contradict ourselves. Self-contradiction can be frustrating.
As I write this, less than a week has gone by since Saddam Hussein was hanged in Iraq. I’ve been praying for Saddam every day for more than ten years. Not so much for his sake, but for mine. It’s not all right with me to hate anyone or anything.
Here’s contradiction. It’s also not all right with me to take a life. Killing someone for what he or she has done doesn’t undo the original doing. It doesn’t make up for it. It doesn’t go toward healing it. Here’s another contradiction: It galls me that I then have to pay the actual cost of maintaining that person’s existence. A prisoner doesn’t pay his or her own way.
I contradict myself. The first statement speaks against the second; the second against the first. Do I not even know my own mind? Actually, I do. I think and believe both things at the same time. Walt Whitman gives me an out, for which I’m grateful. “Do I contradict myself?” he writes in “The Song of Myself,” “Very well then, I contradict myself.”

Seeds are remarkable gifts. Sown in consciousness, they bring you to the most important part of your being—your Divine Spark.

I have to admit I’ve struggled with The Healing Codes. They’re a remarkable idea, and I’ve found them to be effective, but I can’t seem to get comfortable with their price. The owners of The Healing Codes offer a 90-day money back guarantee. I’m sending mine back today.
That said, I can also recommend the use of The Healing Codes. I’ve been working with a very talented Healing Codes Coach who was assigned to me as part of the package. (Don’t worry—we’ve straightened out the financial part of this between us so he doesn’t feel gypped.)
One of the functions of the coach is to create custom healing codes. They can also be what’s known as “Q-coded” which makes the time you do them shorter. My personalized healing codes have been very effective. He works on the telephone so it doesn’t matter where you live. If your interest is piqued, send me an email and I’ll be glad to put you in touch with him. email@example.com
As for the refund, I’ve written a letter to the principals of the company explaining why I’m returning the Codes. I hope they take it to heart.
One of the last frontiers for conscious living is the financial frontier. That’s a fancy way to say: It’s hard to get conscious about money and it’s even harder to stay conscious about it.
Money. What we know about it. What we’ve learned about it. What we do about it. How we act around it. Getting conscious around money is well worth it.
Here’s one of many suggestions: get a conscious credit card. I laughed out loud when I saw the ad.
Finally, a credit card for people like me.
Then a list of things about “people like me.”
I . . .
Read positive books
Donate to charities
Am active in the community
Put my money where my heart is
Then shouldn’t I have a credit card that supports my conscious lifestyle?
Is there one? Absolutely. It’s called the Enlightenment Card. I bit. Here’s some of their website.
Conscious Enlightenment is a global resource for people looking for information, products, and services that can enhance their overall spiritual, health, and creative needs.
Our Mission is to use the power of money, media, and information to change the world.
Our vision is to create a multi-level media platform that disseminates positive information that can be used by anyone.
We believe the world is at a tipping point. Our goal is to assist in creating a unified vision in which we as humans choose to focus on what we have in common and learn to resolve conflict so that we may all share this planet and live as one. We believe in the power of love and the individual armed with information to choose how they want to do their part and get involved.
We will defend democracy, human rights, fair trade and the principal of sustainability in all human enterprise. We listen to the ancient voices of those who have come before us and celebrate the interrelatedness of all living systems.
Our philosophy is to offer any individual who seeks integrative and healthy ideas the tools to evolve their own personal life path. By doing so, we complete the circle:
get what you give – give what you get.
Politically and economically speaking, we support all ideas that create an integrative outcome.
Spiritually speaking, our company is comprised of many people of varying faiths and beliefs. We do not subscribe to any particular religion, and feel strongly that now is the time to set aside our differences and create heaven on Earth.
Delicious, isn’t it? And why not, learning to put our money where our values are is a lifetime task for all of us. I encourage you to start now.
