Lesson #2 - Dr. of Metaphysics Program

Hello Rev. Amy;

I did not see any exercises in lesson #2 but have the following feedback:

1.  The over inflated ego made me think of the people they feature on American Greed which is no CNBC since the finance stuff is my area of interest.  They all got caught by continuing their scam to long and living so extravagantly and thinking hey were too smart to get caught.

There was one man who ran Health South corporation and he had his accounting team create false numbers to thereby trade higher on the NYSE and allow them to gain more loans.  Amazing he and the other 4 accountants were arrested  they all got sentenced to jail and lost all their assets and had to make restitution but the main guy behind that escaped any charges or imprisonment.  Yet, about 7 months later he did something dumb and totally unrelated to the original matter and got sentenced to 7 years in jail. ;0

2.  Have you helped any of the so called  "rich and famous" work through these ego issues?

3.  If you want to work with higher profile people, how do you go about that?

4.  It does seem that some of the most successful and good people like how Steve Jobs was, Bill and Melinda Gates, Warren Buffet gave and give a lot to life and were always wired that way and seem to not be involved in any of the typical over indulgences that someone like Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston were susceptible too.  I have difficulty understand when someone has enough money to pay for proper help they are still using drugs to cope with their problems.  If you are not really happy or cant cope with the precious of fame you don't have to keep being in the spotlight  there are ways to lower the stress and pressure and take on mentoring, producing, writing  and so forth other things so you can transition away from the high stress, of course properly managing your money and being willing to scale back in some ways would need to be put in place if its not already happening. 

5.  Is there anything else I should be thinking about from this lesson?

Thank you Rev. Amy and have a prosperous week!

Rev. Paris
