Spirituality Information - John Harricharan's Interview With Yanik Silver (Q5)
Yanik Silver: And then the other thing that you mentioned about the giving and to me that comes back to the stealing of -- there is people who look at scarcity. There is scarcity minded people and then there is abundant minded people. And I am not saying that that every relationship in every dealing I have I am always trying to think abundantly. I tried to have that in the forefront of my mind. But I know some people when there are -- for instance I lost the friend of mine because I started putting on my own seminar. He thought that he should be the only one that puts on seminars in this particular marketplace and which is crazy and everyone is out to get him.
And it's because of his scarcity mindset and his business keeps slowing down and keeps getting smaller. And for me the abundance mindset is hopefully, that if I can give more-and-more as far as even the charitable contribution then I will get back more-and-more in return just from the natural law of money. John Harricharan: It is a natural law. It is a law, which is very difficult one for us to accept. Infact I have told you about my old friend Foster Hibbard, who was an associate of Napoleon Hill.
Yanik Silver: Right. John Harricharan: And he believed as so much in that and lived it in his life and proved it. And when we give, we get we cannot help ourselves. The universe is a giving universe. You give us seed if you've got. If you've got seed grain and you are starving or you know, that this is only seed you've got to make flower to do something with. And you're thinking, well I am going to eat a little today and a little tomorrow. If you take the seed grain and you give it away to the ground and you make sure it's watered properly. After a while you will have so much grain that you can make all the bread you want. And so you are naturally fulfilling the law of giving and receiving in every ancient text, it talks about it.
But it's not in -- it's not an intuitive law because we feel that if we give we will have less. Yanik Silver: Right. John Harricharan: I have $10 and I give away 6. Well, then I only have 4 and only is a more deadly disease because its called, you know, we can all die of onlyness because we never can give -- out give the universe that’s the law. Now, my example is clear that there are friends of mine who said "John, you could be multi-multi millionaire within a few months if you want to" Why don’t you do that? And I say, I, yeah I would like to but I find what I am doing more interesting… I would like to just make a few $100,000 a year, live comfortably and write some books and talk to people and maybe do nothing. I just want to have the choice to do nothing, if I want to. Or maybe going in other trip or do just bloody, well, whatever I want to do compared to the early days. It's my choice how much is enough? I don't know, but take for example, this year we'll be doing a few things, which will create a little bit more affluence. Do I want to make that a thousand times more? No, no. Am I not going to leave stuff for my kids, you know what? Let them earn their own.
No, of course I will help them a little, but it's just like that, but you are fulfilling the need of all the people. You are giving and this friend that you lost, by feeling that he should be doing this. Now, if that happened, he wasn't a real friend in the first place. And this is not a competitive universe… This is actually a co-operative universe, because if you put your minds together you have a mind that's larger, you know the mastermind principle. That's larger than the two combined actually Napoleon Hill told Foster Hibbard that if you put two together you don't have one and one plus two, you've got two times two times two, it cubes itself. So you have the force of about eight people and if you put three together it's like 27 and so it goes four people together have the force of about six to four. So the mastermind principle works. So if a friend wanted to do what you are doing and you're joined together instead of having problems with doing it together, it will be better for everybody. It's what I call the Alice in Wonderland syndrome, which I love, it says All have won and so all must receive prices. .
