Humans are one of the few animals that walk upright, with two feet on the ground, face to the heavens, and heart open and exposed to the world. These three levels – earth, heaven, and heart – work together to manifest your creative dreams and potential. You can also become blocked or imbalanced in any of these areas.
Heaven Principle (Spirit/Vision)
|See infinite possibilities. Believe you can accomplish anything. “Think big”. Become inspired by imagining the future you truly want.||Get lost in the clouds. Magical thinking. Refusal to do the “boring” tasks required to actually grow a business. Avoid reality through fantasizing or jumping from idea to idea. Buy into “business opportunities” without fully understanding them because they sound good and you want to believe you can get rich instantly without any work.|
Heart Principle (Compassion)
|Seek to align work with your values. Find the work that is your unique contribution and give from the heart. Value yourself and charge enough to meet your needs comfortably.||Get stuck in “noble suffering”. Spend all your time helping others. Take on problems that aren’t yours. No boundaries leads to burnout. Low self-esteem/no right to exist.|
Earth Principle (Real-world)
|Understand human limits. Be honest with your budget and spending habits: don’t spend money you don’t have. Grow steadily but sustainably. Take time to really think about opportunities to see if they are realistic and resonate with you. Enjoy the fruits of work while saving and investing in future.||Can’t see beyond daily tasks or immediate needs. Don’t save for the future out of desire for immediate gratification. OR save everything out of worry and don’t enjoy rewards of work. Reject innovative ideas out of hand. Get stuck in habitual ways of thinking or acting.|
