Having Your Cake AND Eating It
Apparently you can’t have your ?cake AND eat it.
It’s in the rules you know. You can either have your cake OR you can eat it but that’s it.
You can go home now…nothing to see here.
Still reading? Oh well, here is how to have your cake and eat it.
What you can do is eat some of the cake and keep the rest. They you are having it and eating it. Maybe you could buy two cakes and achieve the same result.
Of course, this isn’t about cakes. It is about non-acceptance of the crowd mentality and challenging our current morphogenic field AKA reality.
Have children AND stay at home.
Have a nice car AND a nice holiday.
Lose weight AND eat 6 meals per day.
Be rich AND happy.

Well if you put it like that, its like your saying everything demands a price, and your illustration presents a pretty steep price. . . . take the lose weight analogy there for example. My coach says its ok to eat a slice of pizza on a cheat day, the thing is I’ll need to put another 30 minutes on my jogging. Taking these into consideration isn’t life unfair? how it makes eating cake so pleasurable at the same time a punishment.
Well we can’t just challenge reality head on can we? we need to have a plan, a solid plan to achieve whatever it is we want or destroy any obstacle. This is why I think a lot of teenage mother’s fail. They didn’t plan for it so when the time the baby arrived most of them crash and burn. We can all be happy, and rich and everything else. so long as we persist on achieving them.
You hooked me on “here’s how to have your cake and eat it 🙂 You say it’s about not accepting the crowd mentality, and of challenging our current reality. What I take from this message is — if you want something that seems out of reach, examine creative alternatives, identify what it is you’re willing and able to do in return for achieving your objective, make a plan, and then give it your best try!
Be rich AND happy. Now you’re talking.
I meant be happy AND rich. If I had to choose I?d take happy first, *then* rich!
I like “lose weight and eat six meals a day” too.
Which you can do so long as the meals are small and healthy. More to the point, as Paul implies, it is possible to accomplish seemingly opposing goals by examining alternatives and shifting perspective just a small bit
