The Science of Getting Rich
by Wallace D. Wattles


"A person develops in mind, soul, and body by making use of things, and society is so organized that we must have money in order to become the possessors of things.  Therefore, the basis of all advancement must be the science of getting rich."


In this classic work (originally published in 1906), Wattles reveals the timeless secrets for manifesting whatever we want in life (or in business). 


"Life has advanced so far and become so complex that even the most ordinary man or woman requires a great amount of wealth in order to live in a manner that even approaches completeness.

 Every person naturally wants to become all that they are capable of becoming. This desire to realize innate possibilities is inherent in human nature; we cannot help wanting to be all that we can be.

 Success in life is becoming what you want to be. You can become what you want to be only by making use of things, and you can have the free use of things only as you become rich enough to buy them.

To understand the science of getting rich is therefore the most essential of all knowledge."


Mr. Wattles pulls no punches in promoting a view of the world that requires us to be complete human beings, uniting the many different aspects of who we are and what we came to do in life.


"There are three motives for which we live: We live for the body, we live for the mind, we live for the soul.

No one of these is better or holier than the other; all are alike desirable, and no one of the three - body, mind, or soul - can live fully if either of the others is cut short of full life and expression.

It is not right or noble to have only for the soul and deny mind or body, and it is wrong to live for the intellect and deny body or soul."


Equally interesting is Mr. Wattles philosophy that abundance is not only the right of every human being, but our obligation to a creator who experiences the joys of physical life through our physical existence.


"A person's highest happiness is found in the bestowal of benefits on those he loves; love finds its most natural and spontaneous expression in giving.

The individual who has nothing to give cannot fill his place as a spouse or parent, as a citizen, or as a human being.

It is in the use of material things that a person finds full life for his body, develops his mind, and unfolds his soul. It is therefore of supreme importance to each individual to be rich.

It is perfectly right that you should give your best attention to the science of getting rich, for it is the noblest and most necessary of all studies.

If you neglect this study, you are derelict in your duty to yourself, to God and humanity, for you can render to God and humanity no greater service than to make the most of yourself."


But we do not achieve riches at the expense of another. Rather, we cooperate with the laws of life in attracting the riches we seek.  By giving more than we are asking in payment, we receive more than we expect.


"When you rise from the competitive to the creative plane, you can scan your business transactions very strictly, and if you are selling any person anything which does not add more to his life than the thing he gives you in exchange, you can afford to stop it.

Give everyone more in use value than you take from him in cash value. Then you are adding to the life of the world by every business transaction."

Movies That Warm Your Heart
And Stir Your Soul


Aloha ...

This month I want to tell you about something that is deeply needed at this time for most of us, because it offers an enjoyable way to be entertained and inspired all at the same time.

How often do you finish dinner after a long day's work and want nothing more than to simply relax into the evening?

So you turn on the television hoping to see and hear something that is not filled with stories of people hurting each other.  But it's nearly impossible to find.

And if you could really have what you wanted, wouldn't you choose something that engaged your mind and touched your heart in an uplifting way? 

In addition, I'm pretty sure you would choose not to have it continuously interrupted with commercials for an unending supply of consumer goods or pharmaceuticals and their empty promises of a better life.

Well ... There may be hope on the horizon!

The Spiritual Cinema Circle, founded by Stephen Simon (Producer of the films "Somewhere in Time", "What Dreams May Come", and "Indigo"), offers an inexpensive way to bring several hours of inspiring entertainment into your life.

Each month you receive 4 features and shorts (films and documentaries) on DVD. They are selected to represent the best of spiritual cinema and art, and the movies are new films that you are unlikely to see anywhere else.

What's more ... the DVDs are yours to keep ... You never return them!

In fact, you're encouraged to share them with friends and family in order to broaden the worldwide spiritual cinema community.

The cost of the service is being kept to a minimum, so a maximum number of people can participate. Currently, they are offering a promotion where you pay a new member rate of only $20 per month (instead of the regular $29 fee) plus $3.95 shipping and handling ($7.95 outside the USA).

There's really no risk since you can cancel your membership at any time (there's no long term commitment), and you still never have to return the DVDs.

If you love movies, but find it harder and harder to go to theaters because of the violence, emptiness, and overall lack of imagination that characterizes most of the current choices, this is a wonderful opportunity.

With The Spiritual Cinema Circle, you can now watch movies that will warm your heart, expand your mind, and stir your soul ... without leaving home

Did you get to see the movies Whale Rider or What The Bleep?

These are great films that I have recommended to all my friends and family.  And there are many films made each year as beautiful as Whale Rider and as thought-provoking as What The Bleep, but almost nobody gets to see them.

The mainstream movie business runs as much on popcorn-sales as ticket-sales. Big, violent, action movies bring in audiences that eat those huge $7 boxes of popcorn and those 32-ounce $4 cups of soft drinks. That's why theater-owners want those kinds of films, and why Hollywood makes them.

The movies you'll see as a member of The Spiritual Cinema Circle are made with love and passion ... not to sell popcorn.

Do you remember how you felt when you saw Field Of Dreams, Ghost or Truly, Madly, Deeply?

The films I have seen since subscribing to this program are like hidden treasures, and just as moving as those classics of spiritual cinema.

Because of Stephen's connections in the film industry, and his talks at film festivals around the world, he can watch wonderful movies that few others get to enjoy.  He's often said, without exaggeration, that some of the best movies made every year go virtually unseen.

The major distributors won't touch the most heartfelt, soul-satisfying movies, because they don't think there's enough money in it for them.  And even the independent distributors often overlook these quality films.

Click on the link below and give yourself hours of wonderful entertainment every month.  Make a statement about what kind of a world you want to live in, and make a real difference in how spiritually-empowering entertainment is distributed, by demonstrating how big the worldwide spiritual cinema community really is.


Joining The Spiritual Cinema Circle opens the door to a new world. You'll see movies with all the great themes of spiritual cinema:

  • Life after life

  • Enhanced powers and sensibilities

  • Reality and time

  • Visionary romance and adventures

  • The power of love

  • Movies with Heart and Movies with Soul

Your subscription gives you access to award-winning films every month that only attendees of Film Festivals around the world get to see - and you never have to leave home!

You'll also get to see wonderful shorter films.

Many of the best movies made every year are under an hour long, and almost nobody gets to see them because they're just too short for the theaters.

There are many nights when we don't have time to watch a feature-length movie. It's times like this when I really value my membership in The Spiritual Cinema Circle because I have access to wonderful, deeply-moving films that I can see in under an hour.

Each movie you receive is selected for its spiritual value, psychological depth, and its ability to enrich your life.  In addition, you'll get Stephen's newsletter, full of reviews and useful information about the new world of spiritual cinema.

Play it forward, plant it forward.

The CIRCLE is a wonderful new way to advance the cause of spiritual cinema. When you receive your DVDs each month, you're encouraged to "Play it forward" by inviting friends and family into The CIRCLE to watch the movies with you.

As a special bonus, and to offset any environmental impact of sending DVDs each month, the CIRCLE plants a tree in honor of every member of the community. Your membership becomes a way to "Plant it forward" as well as "Play it forward".

You are helping to start an evolution - with your eyes and ears.

It's a special kind of evolution, one that you can enjoy in your living room. I hope you will join me in showing Hollywood how big the worldwide spiritual cinema community really is.

I hope you'll join me in saying NO to endless recycled, unimaginative films and YES to inspiring, moving spiritual cinema.

For less than the cost of three tickets to the latest Nightmare On Elm Street sequel #18 or Die Hard Version 37, you get several entertaining spiritual cinema experiences every month - and never have to send anything back.

You are contributing to the growth of spiritual cinema in the world.

By encouraging filmmakers to make more of the kind of movies we want to see, we can have a direct influence on the future of the industry.

Here's what one subscriber said about The Spiritual Cinema Circle:

"These movies really have been fantastic.
It is an incredible deal for $20 a month,
and it can make a change in the world
by promoting something different than
the usual fare of violence and special effects"

These movies have real depth, real meaning, real people in them.  They can touch something spiritual and awaken it within us.
