Four Square / Disney II

Seeds IX, 48

Seed: Four Square/Disney II

I have a file in my computer called Seeds Ideas. I add to it whenever something strikes me as a good idea for a Seed. Reading it this morning, I saw two “fours” that appealed to me.

The first is the work of metaphysician Florence Scovel Shinn. She calls it Four Square. The second is the work of Walt Disney. He calls it The Four Words to the Secret of Life. We’re going to explore Shinn’s and Disney’s four words a week at a time for the next four weeks. I think they link together nicely.

The second two are Wealth, and Believe. Wealth is one of those words. Its roots are Anglo-Saxon and they mean wholeness. What makes you wealthy is up to you. Your own definition of wealth is more important than any other, meaning—what you believe about wealth is what makes you wealthy.

It’s always a worthwhile experiment to figure out what you believe about wealth. It can be measured any way you like. A home, friends, money, a partner, fulfilling work. What you value is your wealth. Your values come from your beliefs. Look there to find your own wealth.

Think of Florence Scovel Shinn’s words as a square upon which you stand—the second side of the square is Wealth, and think of Walt Disney’s as the actions to take to get to that solid square—in this case, Believe.

Be serene,

Dr. Susan Corso

Seeds are remarkable gifts. Sown in consciousness, they bring you to the most important part of your being—your Divine Spark.
