You could always go Prosperity / Norman Vincent Peale / Tony Robbins / The Secret “Universe Manifests Your Will” thing.

You could always go Prosperity / Norman Vincent Peale / Tony Robbins / The Secret “Universe Manifests Your Will” thing.

I mean you COULD do Prosperity Gospel but that’s just a bastardization of Positive Thinking.

It’s the same repackaged Norman Vincent Peale “Power of Positive Thinking” stuff. I read it as a kid and it’s good motivationals when you want a boost but as a life philosophy for riches it’s kind of ridiculous.

BUT – there IS a modified Ayn Rand you can do. It gives you new ethics to fuck over people with. That’s a religion you could do.

Then there’s the rational economics religion: “The Invisible Hand” of the Holy Market with the Rational Man as its devotee.

That’s kind of what I was taught as a Methodist, although I think God’s like a life force running through stuff. It was all kind of vague but made sense as a kid.

I went to Unitarian and then all the way to Eastern Orthodox for a bit. I just stuck my religious gear into generic agnostic for now ’til I can get back to it.
