I love my work at Happy Living!

For the last sixteen months, I have been preparing an agenda and leading thought-provoking discussions with Privately Inspired People twice a month. This invitation-only group provides an environment full of ideas, encouragement, and support to help one another take inspired action to live our one wild and precious life to its fullest, because…

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. 

Proverbs 27:17

A Social, Global, Networking Fundraiser of Love

Our meeting on Thursday, April 18, 2024, focuses on small acts of love acting together to create big results.

The 13th-century poet known simply as Rumi was describing this very thing when he said, “If you put your heart against the earth with me, in serving every creature, our Beloved will enter you from our sacred realm and we will be, we will be so happy.” Love is the only thing on earth able to tap into the power of the sacred realm. Rumi said the same thing with these words, “Of all you see, only love is infinite.” My latest post, A Social, Global, Networking Fundraiser of Love, details an experiment I’m conducting to see how much money we can raise for my friend, Susie Singer Carter, by mashing-up the powers of a NETWORK of like-minded people, personal COMMUNICATION tools with global reach, the ASK, worldwide DISTRIBUTION power, NEAR-ZERO MARGINAL COST products, and the most powerful force of all, LOVE!

Our group will focus on how with these four ways of acting together, we can each do small acts of love in support of our charitably-minded experiment to raise enough money for the final funding and raise awareness of the huge need for the docuseries called NO COUNTRY FOR OLD PEOPLE.

  1. The Muscle
  2. The Heart
  3. The Brain
  4. The Spirit

ONE | The Muscle. Mashing together six powerful forces in the service of one focused outcome gives this charitably-minded experiment its Herculean muscle. Our NETWORK of like-minded people begins with more than 75,000 people directly connected to the major stakeholders of this experiment. With Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and other social media platforms, we can reach potentially millions of people in virtually every region of the world, almost instantly. Then we simply ASK those millions of people to Buy a book from Happy Living with 100% of all proceeds going to help with the final funding of NO COUNTRY FOR OLD PEOPLE, and to Share this post in their NETWORKS, making the same charitable ASK. Happy Living books has the DISTRIBUTION power to deliver our ebooks instantly and the paperbacks in just a matter of days to anyone, anywhere in the world, at any time. We can deliver one book, one hundred books, or one hundred thousand books with the same effort—it’s truly amazing. That’s the power of NEAR-ZERO MARGINAL COST and that’s what gives our fundraiser of LOVE its financial heft. Now, I want you to imagine our reach! Imagine our collective power!!! If we could sell thousands of books and raise $5,000+ or tens of thousands of books and raise $50,000+, well, that would demonstrate the kind of LOVE Rumi was trying to describe. For me? It would make me so happy if you’ll put your heart against the earth with us, in serving others, in this charitably-minded experiment of the incredible power of LOVE! #LovePower #NetworkPower #DistributionPower #HerculeanPower

TWO | The Heart. Every single person, the world over, who says YES to our ASK gives this charitably-minded experiment its Compassionate heart. Saying YES is a small act of love. One small act of love leads to another, and then another, and so on. We can create a powerful ripple effect of love that’ll be felt all around the world or as Dr. Wayne Dyer believes, even throughout the cosmos. “Even if no one sees or acknowledges it, a silent blessing or thought of love towards others contains a vibration that will be felt throughout the cosmos.” Everyone has something they can give, so please give what you can—whether it’s buying books, sharing on social media, organizing in-person events (like I’m doing at the Brookridge Retirement Community in Lawton, Oklahoma, where my beautiful parents live), or coming up with new, creative ways to help Susie get this important documentary film across the finish line and out in the world where it belongs. #CompassionateHeart #ThePowerOfYes #ActsOfLove #ActsOfKindness

THREE | The Brain. Developing and sharing best-practices throughout our NETWORK gives this charitably-minded experiment its Wizard-like Brain. I learned years ago, in another business life, to create information once and use it over-and-over again. And to leverage technology to work better, faster, and more efficiently. So, I’ve created an outreach system to easily and quickly share this experiment of love with my community of friends and family using Text Replacement.

When I type “nc1” in a text, social media message, or email, the Text Replacement software instantly creates, “Hi, Friend! I’m sending love and a request. May I ask a small favor to support a big and meaningful cause? Would you give me five minutes to read about a charitably-minded experiment I’m running to support a friend’s docuseries 📽️🎬 called, ‘NO COUNTRY FOR OLD PEOPLE’? Please say yes, and I’ll message it right to you 🙏❤️—Matt

If the response is YES… I simply type “nc2” and automatically create, “❤️🌎 Fantastic! Thank you, Friend. Your support means the world. As you read the post, please consider any role you’d be willing to play in this charitably-minded experiment of the incredible power of LOVE! 🙏❤️—Matt https://happyliving.com/2024/04/13/a-social-global-networking-fundraiser-of-love

And when they agree to join our experiment of LOVE… I type “nc3 and instantly create this reply, “Thank you, Friend.  I truly appreciate you and your support. Yes, please order some books and share this experiment of love everywhere and with everyone you know by making the ASK… ASK the people in your NETWORKS to do two small things in support of our charitably-minded experiment: ONE 📚📖📘 Buy a book or a few from Happy Living with 100% of all proceeds going to help with the final funding of NO COUNTRY FOR OLD PEOPLE, and TWO 🙏❤️🌎 Share this post in their NETWORKS, making the same charitable ASK. 🙏❤️—Matt https://happyliving.com/2024/04/13/a-social-global-networking-fundraiser-of-love” #BestPractices

FOUR | The Spirit. Tapping into the collective intelligence (muscle, heart, and brain) of the major stakeholders of this experiment, as well as every person around the world who says YES and joins us gives this charitably-minded experiment its Supernatural spirit. Working together. Creating together. Innovating together. Experimenting with new ideas together. Sharing. Each individual contributing his or her small acts of love to the collective results to provide the final funding Susie needs to bring NO COUNTRY FOR OLD PEOPLE to life. This Collective Intelligence Supernatural Spirit Power is exactly what Rumi’s meant when he said, “Of all you see, only love is infinite.” #SpiritPower #CollectiveIntelligence #BetterTogether #LoveIsInfinite

In preparation for our meetings, I generally recommend that each member ponders over a quote or a few and does a little bit of light homework (reading a blog post or two and sometimes viewing a video, too). This is the prep work for our April 18, 2024 meeting.

PONDERABLES

Of all you see, only love is infinite.

Rumi

If you put your heart against the earth with me, in serving every creature, our Beloved will enter you from our sacred realm and we will be, we will be so happy.
