There are always two roads…
It has been an interesting year of urgent events and seeing Chiropractors step up to the plate in time, service and charitable donations.
We have seen leaders in TIC step up to the plate and support with money.
Unfortunately, the same can not be said for Jay Z.
Yo, Jay Z the rapper?
Yep. The one worth $610 million dollars.
Full Disclosure In 2012-13 myself and my partner Dr. Lara sponsored Daniel in the early stages of his career. We witnessed many of his impressive knockouts and were excited for his trajectory and thrilled when he signed with RocNation (founded by Jay Z)
This isn’t so much about money…but Social Currency
Daniel “Twitch” Franco left his last bout with $5000 and in a coma.
Jay Z makes half-a-million.
This conversation could be over real quick.
This is where it get’s weird to me.
Because with over millions of followers Jay Z could have swayed the narrative, served his client and not spent a dime.
It’s not just about the money anymore. With social-crowd-funding fundraisers and alert teams for emergency situation you can support those in need now with just a CLICK, Tweet and a Share.
We want to acknowledge some of the biggest givers we’ve seen in time, energy and money in Chiropractic
Thank you to Rick Wren, Scott Garber, Kimberly Goreham, Tabor Smith, Miles Bodzin just to name a few – but there are so many more out there we need to be acknowledging for their love and support this year.
Lessons from a Guru – From Deepak Chopra
The Law of Giving and Receiving is simple: If you want love, learn to give love, if you want attention and appreciation, learn to give attention and appreciation, if you want material affluence, help others to become materially affluent. If you want to be blessed with all the good things in life, learn to silently bless everyone with all the good things in life. The more you give, the more you will receive. In your willingness to give that which you seek, you will keep the abundance of the universe circulating in your life.
Abundance has material expression, but what is really circulating is consciousness. Even the thought of giving, the thought of blessing, or a simple prayer has the power to affect others. We are bundles of thought in a thinking unviese, and thought has the power to transform.
The best way to experience the Law of Giving and Receiving is to give a gift to everyone you come into contact with. This doesn’t have to be in the form of material things. The gifts of caring, affection, appreciation, and love are some of the most precious gifts you can give, and they don’t cost you anything.
One of the things I was taught as a child is never to go to anyone’s house without bringing a gift. You may say, “How can I give to others when I don’t have enough myself?” You can bring a note that says something about your feelings for the person you’re visiting. You can bring a flower, a compliment, or a prayer.
Whenever you meet someone, silently send that person a blessing. This kind of silent giving is very powerful. Give wherever you go, and as you give, you will receive. As you receive, the more your ability to give will increase, and the more you’ll gain confidence in the miraculous effects of this law.
There is nothing you lack, because your essential nature is one of pure potentiality and infinite possibilities. You are inherently affluent no matter how much or how little money you have, because the source of all wealth is the field of pure potentially that knows how to fill every need.
Giving and receiving are nothing other than the flow of life—the harmonious interaction of all elements and forces that structure the field of existence. The exchange of energy is the process that has its own timing, organization and beauty. Your life unfolds in the same way. Everything that comes to you, isn’t something you earn, but a gift freely given by the universe, which means it comes from a deep awareness of what you need.
Think of all the things that have been freely given to you without your having to ask for them. Just experiencing gratitude allows you to participate in the law of Giving and Receiving. Nature supports your every need and desire, including your need for joy, love, laughter, harmony, and knowledge. Seek these things first—not only for yourself, but for others—and all else will spontaneously come to you.
To experience the Law of Giving and Receiving:
1. Give a gift to everyone you encounter, be it a compliment, a flower, or a prayer. This will begin the process of circulating joy and affluence in your life and in the lives of others.
2. Gratefully receive every gift that life offers you. Be open to receiving, whether it be a material gift from others, a compliment, or a prayer.
3. Silently wish everyone you encounter happiness, joy and laughter. By giving and receiving the gifts of caring, affection, appreciation, and love you will keep wealth circulating in your life.
