True Prosperity: Becoming an employee of the Universe



Chantri Imzaia:‎"Being an employee of the Universe means following your inner guidance and doing what you love to do, which from this perspective is what you are meant to do. You know already what your meant to do because it is what you love whether it seems like a valid vocation in the usual sense or not.

Becoming an employee of the Universe has some requirements. One is that we open our minds and really take stock of what we truly love to do and are drawn to do. Once we see that, we must let go of what we think we ‘should‘ do and fully embrace what we love.

This requires a great deal of trust at first because the fears of survival and lack based mentality will come in and try to scare us into getting back with the old program, which is working to survive.

We have to have the courage and the faith to resist that and persist because we’re not here to survive. Animals are here to survive, we are here to thrive and create and as human beings we have the capability to co-create our reality."


Newageofactivsism.com: Beloved Chantri. we agree with you completely Following our inner guidance and doing what we love to do is awesome . We are totally co-creating our reality with you. Humanity is definitely here to thrive  and so do animals. Animals have been employed by the universe since time without beginning. We know that animals occupy another state of consciousness but we really feel that  animals are in fact a little bit more evolve than most human beings. We feel safer in the rainforest with the anacondas and the rest of the animal life than in most places in this city. 

Animal kingdom: We love Chantri Imzaia and we don't take anything personally. We are in bliss all of the time but we also like to eat  just like you do! Yum!  We are not opposed to becoming vegan vegetarians  we will consider this option absolutely. 


REDICECREATIONS: I love the word prosperity. Prosperity represents a fulfilling life encompassing not only material wealth but happiness and genuine fulfillment. I think of it as a state where abundance is free to flow uninhibited through all areas of one’s life.

I think you could say most people long to live in such a state but few people actually do. What is it that obstructs living in a sustained state of true prosperity? True prosperity being grounded in abundance and growth oriented experiences. True prosperity is not achieved by cheating people, doing work that makes you miserable or defining prosperity solely by material wealth.

There are plenty of wealthy people who are miserable and I would not call them prosperous because key parts of their lives are unfulfilled if not a source of serious pain. I set out to discover true prosperity for myself nearly 7 years ago and its been a painful, wild but enlightening journey.

As much as I’ve struggled over the last few years trying to realize prosperity some have repeatedly told me I should just go get a job. Many points on my journey have been characterized by poverty and near homelessness. These people are well meaning in their advice and from a practical perspective it makes sense.

However after leaving a high paying corporate job in 2005 I became disgusted with the whole concept of work which is part of what led me to start this journey.

To begin with, I got another job working for a non-profit that helped the homeless and when that wasn’t fulfilling I found a job working for a large Buddhist organization. I thought for sure doing work for a spiritual organization would be fulfilling. It wasn’t.

In fact neither of these jobs felt any better to me than my corporate job. That’s because they all had one primary thing in common, expending a large amount of effort doing something I didn’t like for money, to survive. It ended up not mattering that it was for a good cause because in the moment my time and effort went into activities that were not fulfilling or nurturing to me personally.

For me something seems wrong about that and I’ve reached a point where I literally cannot do it without major physical, emotional and spiritual consequences. I slowly realized that part of my life purpose was to find a way to achieve true prosperity no matter what I had to go through in order to do that.

One of the major realizations I’ve had over the years is that we as a society and as individuals have become conditioned into lack and scarcity which is the opposite of abundance and prosperity. Part of this conditioning ties our natural survival instinct to money where money becomes synonymous with survival.
