The Millionaire and Inside-Out

I found an excellent, inspirational example of the inside-out first approach in a review of multimillionaire, teacher, publisher Marc Allen’s new book, The Magical Path—Creating the Life of Your Dreams and a World That Works for All.  For Allen, ‘magical’ means inner—intuitive and non-rational. He suggests that readers go first to the part of the book that “calls” to them. In his own life, the magic worked for Allen when he turned within. He says he’s inherently lazy and undisciplined. His favorite yoga posture was the corpse pose. When he was in his twenties, he couldn’t hold a job and was broke, out of shape, and miserable until his thirtieth birthday. On that day he got his bloated nothingness out of the way and wrote down where he wanted to be in five years.


He says there’s no pressure in this ‘magic,’ just the truth, which is that the truth is within you. “Magic is the mysterious process by which something is created out of apparently nothing. It is the process that has created this entire vast universe with you and me sitting in it and pondering these words at this moment.” The magical path is shorter because it involves powerful tools for Selfawareness such as mindfulness and meditation that can work quickly. It also involves failure. But since every successful person has had at least one, there’s no sense letting the fear of failure hold you back.


Go ahead! Dream your dream and use the powerful age-old tools of metaphysics - the technology of inside-out: affirmations, visualizations, prayers, mantras, mindfulness and meditation – to bring your dream to fruition. “When the worlds you create in your mind connect with your heart, you create what you love.”
