I’m curious to know if the foundation of these subliminal products are rooted in the concept that, fulfilling one’s personal and self-fulfilling desires is the highest and most worthwhile achievement one can strive for. The reason I bring this up is because this concept provides a very weak foundation.
I imagine that @Fire and @SaintSovereign gain much happiness and fulfillment by running the Subliminal Club business as well as fostering and growing the community. I would argue that they gain more fulfillment from this endeavor (which is based on providing valuable products and services to others), compared to other endeavors that are purely self-fulfilling. A business grows best when the business strives to add value to their services. If you imagined your own personality as a business, what kind of business would you want to be? One that purely focuses on profit and gain? Or one that continually innovates to find ways to add value to your services, and continually strives to better serve your customers.
In observing famous personalities (I won’t be specific here), we can observe that a life purely in pursuit of personal enjoyment does not often end gloriously. People with more wealth, romantic partners, and pleasures of this world than we could ever imagine have committed suicide (willingly or unwillingly) or ended up ruining their lives and the lives of others. In contrast, we find those personalities who lead a life rooted in service to others, and we see that whether they are rich or poor, they radiate a deep inner joy that no circumstance can seem to shake.
My point here is that if we actually want to enjoy, it’s better to recognize sooner rather than later that we will gain more enjoyment if we focus on providing service to others. Now what would this practically look like in a sentence or two? Let’s say you want a romantic partner and you crave and desire this satisfaction. If you listen to a subliminal program that is built on the premise that fulfilling this desire for yourself in this self-fulfilling way is going to make you happy, then it’s not giving you the best value. It would be more truthful and beneficial to somehow encode the foundational understanding that bringing satisfaction to others is going to give you twice the fulfillment, because think about it, you get the satisfaction of seeing another person benefit as well as your own personal benefit. It’s a double win!
This is definitely a subtle distinction and might be considered splitting hairs, but I think it’s the kind of thing that is worth examining in terms of the careful word selection and intention of these programs. Especially since the subconscious mind is very nuanced.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
