Guidance through thought.
Napolean Hill wrote a book called Think and Grow Rich—and since its publication over 75 years ago, it’s sold over 15 million copies. That’s a lot of copies.
In it, Hill makes a claim that you might not expect from a “get rich” book.
Using the term Infinite Intelligence in lieu of God, Hill claims there is a “larger mind” out there, and that it holds the key to true happiness and success. By accessing this Infinite Intelligence, he believed we could tap into a never-ending source of power.
Hill cites the example of Thomas Edison, who would retreat to a basement, an isolated place without sound and light, where he would “receive” his ideas, much like a radio picking up a station signal. Hill did much the same in his own life, relying on inner “conversations” with a power greater than himself to help guide him toward success.
I can vouch for this approach as well. The answers and guidance are out there, waiting to be received—whether we’re pondering a business opportunity, a new relationship or any change that impacts our life, big or small.
Some answers may come on a hunch or by intuition. Others come via time spent in prayer and meditation. And still others come to you when you least expect them, showing up in small lessons that have a larger meaning within the context of life.
In the coming weeks, from my cozy new home at The Elephant Journal, I’ll be looking at how we can find the “answers and guidance” that are available to us from the Infinite Intelligence.
And how the answers we need often surface in surprising and mysterious ways.
