Self-Help: It's Time For a Fatwah on FADWAS

Aug 18, 2008
A fatwah is a legal opinion or ruling issued by an Islamic scholar. Osama bin Laden issued three fatwahs calling upon Muslims ". . . to take up arms against the United States," which apparently resulted in the 911 attacks on the World Trade Center.

The term first came to the attention of Westerners more than a dozen years earlier when Ayatollah Khomeini, then Supreme Leader of Iran, called for author Salman Rushdie to be killed for writing a book that was seen to be critical of Islam, "The Satanic Verses" (1988). Rushdie spent nearly a decade hiding underground in fear for his life.

Being a self-help, personal growth & development "scholar", I am issuing a fatwah of my own: A Fatwah on FADWAS.

FADWA is an acronym or initialism with the capitalized letters standing for F-ear A-nger D-oubt W-orry A-nxiety and S-adness.

FADWAS are the emotional manifestation of negative thoughts and beliefs. FADWAS are the greatest enemies to health, wealth and joy that exist. They are the killers of success and achievement in all forms and all domains of life.

And. . . I am calling for their death. I am issuing a Fatwah on FADWAS.

FADWAS are memories and beliefs (habits of thought) that go far beyond simply dis-empowering. They are the cold-blooded killers of living and working in 3D-- as you Desire, Dream and Deserve. They are criminals and they are terminally and mentally insane; hence they are irreconcilable, irredeemable and incapable of rehabilitation. However, they are NOT indelible. They can be erased, removed, washed-away. That requires "Releasing." "Let go let God," is one way. There are others.

FADWAS are pervasive worldwide. They exist in everyone.

What is mandatory is for each and every human being to accept complete personal responsibility for ALL the FADWAS of the world. I know. . . I know. . . It's not your fault. You are not to blame. BUT, you are responsible.

FADWAS are NOT someone else's problem.

FADWAS are NOT outside forces.

FADWAS are WITHIN US. . . always.

HOW you execute (no pun intended, just a truth) your Fatwah on FADWAS is, of course, up to you. And I am happy to explore all the different approaches with you. . .

My own current modus operandi is inspired by Alice in Wonderland and the Queen of Hearts (heart-felt) command, "Off with their heads!"

Or, in this case. . . off with mine.

Of course, when throwing out the trash it is a smart move to keep the can itself, but that's another matter for another time.

What your mind believes you will achieve-- always and in all ways.

Thanks.

I appreciate you!
