White Fire of Desire

In "Think And Grow Rich," Napoleon Hill bluntly asserts, "You can never have riches in great quantities unless you can work yourself into a white heat of desire for money, and actually believe you will possess it."

And in "A Little Book of Aloha: Spirit of Healing," a Hawaiian healer takes this truth a step futher: "White heat is pure heat. If you are pure in your mind of what you want to do, then you will be on fire."

White heat is the sacred fire of faith -- in yourself, in your dream, in your ability to, as Hall says, "conceive, believe and achieve."

A radiant 60-year-old woman I met last week, who looks much younger than her chronological years, is successful in all aspects of her life: love relationship, business, health, home, finances, etc. When I asked her for the secret to her happiness, she responded, "I'm living inside the commitment to my gratification."

Wow. What an inspiring, radical image that evoked for me.

This type of "self"-centered behavior is a blessing for all, because a happy person spreads joy and possibility by her very presence. She's white heat in action.
