As I counsel people on creating wealth and developing prosperity consciousness, there is one issue that comes up again, and again. The pervasive, all-encompassing and lack-centered beliefs they developed as a result of their exposure to organized religion. It's the single biggest issue I see.
Of course I've talked about this a lot here, in my "Randy's Rants" newsletter, and my last book, "Why You're Dumb, Sick and Broke." But it's hard to make a dent in this, because organized religion is such big business, and their fundamentalist followers are so brainwashed they can't even think for themselves any longer.
If you want some great homework, here's your assignment: Go see Bill Maher's documentary, "Religulous." Like pretty much everything he does, it's funny, thought provoking, and brilliant.
I will admit, the flick is certainly not made to be fair and balanced. Bill has strong opinions and this film is his soapbox. But what a soapbox it is! Critics will say that he made the faithful look ridiculous. Not true. They did that all by themselves. Go out and see it. Love it or hate it, it's a great vehicle to foster critical thinking if you're open to it.
