How to get rich quickly and painlessly


This blog post is about how to get rich quickly and painlessly. Everybody wants to be rich. However most people, especially in western culture, only see a limited path to this goal.

A wise man once said there were two ways to get rich: one is to figure out how to make enough money to pay for the luxuries you want. The other method is to be content with what you already have.

The latter method only sounds defeatist to a materialist. To someone who isn’t fulfilled by materialistic goals it actually sounds like heaven on earth. It is also in line with Native American or Minimalist philosophy.

It’s not hard to get rich the first way either. If you really focus on something long enough you will eventually attract it ways to get it. This is known as the Law of Attraction.

To sum it up, you only get out of life what you truly want to have. If you feel unable to achieve a goal then maybe it is because you don’t really want it for yourself. Or maybe you are seeking what someone else wants for you, even though it may never make you happy.

The Bible doesn’t condemn or condone wealth. It is pretty much tied to an individual’s work ethic and life goals. True wealth radiates from the inside out as you come to know your Creator.

Someone else also was quoted as saying that the real secret to getting rich is to realize that you already are. It doesn’t matter how mainstream media tries to convince you how poor you are. That is all propaganda to serve an agenda.

If money buys happiness, how much does it cost?


You can’t have everything. Where would you put it?”-Steven Wright

What is happiness and love going for on the open market these days? Granted these are freely given by the Divine, but if man could find a way to sell it. . .

Actually man can sell the illusion of love. This is called porn.

Someone once said that in the new age, love will be the new currency. The first thing that jumped to my mind was that the last time I tried to purchase anything with love I ended up in jail. (jk)

They say if you do what you love the money will follow. Although it seems like the most service oriented jobs don’t pay a lot. Jesus said you can’t serve God and mammon. You can make money by serving others, and get rich if you add enough value, but if it’s true service then money can’t be your end goal; if it is then we are just doing business.

If you make a living with you passion, you might end up hating it if you have to produce too much. This is why many people keep their passion as their hobbies.

Lastly, I saw a few fast food franchises that are paying $12-15 an hour. And that’s in places where the minimum wage is low. One is In-N-Out burger, but this could be because they are in California where the minimum wage is high anyway.

In-N-Out burger? Why does that name sound so dirty? Figures with a name like that you would come from California.

Maybe I should pursue a career flipping burgers. Any job can be a career if you enjoy it and have the resources to live on it. I would get to work behind a mic.

Practice mindful meditation and learn to live in the moment which lasts for eternity


You have probably heard people say all your life how short life is. This is mostly because we only see life on this side of whatever lies beyond it. Also compared to the characters displayed in the Bible, we live much shorter lives versus the 900+ years they lived. I wonder sometimes if they weren’t counting their years in months back then. If I were to celebrate my birthday monthly, I just passed 500 months old. I don’t think those restaurants which give you a free meal on your birthday would honor that though.

Another reason people think life is short is because their life goes so fast. That is usually because they are not really living it. In place of living life, we are more focused on surviving and trying to sustain it. The end result is that it gets away from us.

In the last 8 years I begin to practice meditation more. We tell ourselves that we don’t have time to meditate, but we make time for what is important. Plus I don’t have to sit still to meditate. That would actually bore me.

The practice of mindful meditation just means staying focused on the present. I get bored so easily that my mind wonders and I lose focus and daydream. Meditation just keeps me grounded in the now. In the end it is really all we have.

It is good to have goals because that keeps us alive and gives us a sense of purpose. But the future is not guaranteed or promised, no matter what version of the prosperity gospel you ascribe to. Focus on the now and the future will take care of itself.

In the past few years, my life has slowed down. Almost too slow sometimes. But I remind myself that life is not too short, because it never really ends. Death is just a passing. It would take more faith to believe that this short span of time here on earth is all we have. Even a lot of atheists don’t really believe that this life is all their is. Some of them just don’t get hung up on the afterlife because we still have to get through this life first.

Minimalism: Making room for more


Now that I have simplified my life over the last six years, I am discovering that part of the secret to making money is solving complex problems. Man has a tendency to complicate things and this is actually where the money is at. The simple life may be the good life but it is not where the money is.


Being a minimalist is good. To a point, that is. But becoming a minimalist is not about the lack of ambition that many people think it is. Even the folks over at The Minimalist website (the Beckers in Arizona) consider themselves a middle class family.
Minimalism is all about prioritizing what you want in life and making balance.

It is all about knowing yourself and what you truly want out of life. Essentially you minimize the clutter and maximize your potential elsewhere.

As someone on my social media feed said, the best way to find your calling in life is to ask yourself what problem you would like to solve.


The best way to market yourself is to make the problem sound as complicated as possible and then in the interview you go and make yourself sound like you are the only one who is able to solve said problem.

Play the game. Or white man’s game, or whatever you call it. Although it is not really just the white man’s game anymore.


My ability to simplify as a freelance writer resulted in getting paid less for jobs. When you get paid by the word, it is not a good idea to simplify content into less words. I read somewhere that even in novels, the authors have to insert fluff. The result is a 500 page novel may in all actuality just be a 100+ page short story.


Factor in that every time the author mentions a name brand product that the advertiser pays a bonus to the publisher and then subsequently to the author.


So basically, the secret to making money is to overthink and overcomplicate. Then proceed to solve the problem by creating another problem. Or maybe two or three more. Why not be an overachiever?
Keep doing this for four or five decades until you can retire.

What if Antarctica became a country?


As the world soars past seven billion people, it is a constant thought on everyone’s mind as to how we are going to sustain all of these people. The world is definitely overpopulated. The chief principle in economics is the theory of scarcity; that is the belief that the world cannot contain this many people. This leads the vast majority to work hard and hoard material things while at the same time fearing an economic crash.  

There are many theories as to how to deal with the mass overpopulation problem. One idea is to stop making babies. China already limits households to two children. I can’t help but wonder what happens if a couple were to have triplets?  

Another theory is to start colonizing other planets. Since America is known as the last frontier, many Americans are bored because there is nothing new to discover in this world.  This is perhaps why we are so infatuated with space.  Is there life on other planets? If not, maybe we should find a way to start colonizing Mars next since there has been water sighted on the red planet.  

Migrating to Antarctica?

If the global warming theory persists, eventually Antarctica may become habitable. This is the fifth largest continent and already has tourists visiting during the warmest parts of the years. What if one day Antarctica became another country? That would go a long way to easing the burden of living in an overpopulated world.  

How would we go about populating Antarctica? One thing that is almost for certain; the global elite would definitely want to establish a bank there.  It would probably start with people from all over the world trying to escape oppressive governments and declaring their freedom. Then the global elite would definitely want to invade the territory and establish a bank. This would lead to the Antarctican Revolution and possibly a mass genocide of penguins.  

The Real Problem and How to Deal With It

It’s fun to speculate but however it all turns out, the real problem is overpopulation. People blame the baby boomers for this problem, but it is actually their frisky parents who came home from World War Two and started having an average of four children per household.  

Whatever the case, the overpopulation may have been a blessing in disguise. The elite were trying to turn us into robots and then realized there are a way more of us than there are of them.  

The Post World War Two generation may have saved our lives by procreating more humans than they could control. They can either kill all of us or empower us to provide for ourselves. The latter is the result of the Internet being released to the public over twenty years ago.
