This is an age-old question, and it's answered in my latest podcast.

It can be a crisis of faith when we start to look out and see what we might call 'negative', 'destructive', or 'greedy' types of people, and we wonder why they have so much more abundance than really 'decent', 'good-hearted' people.

Or why are these decent, good-hearted people getting sick, and these somewhat greedy, materialist people are just doing great and flying around in their jets?

There are some key distinctions to understand here. The first one is that what the law of life operates upon is consciousness, principle.

What appears to be a good person and a good personality, in and of itself, is not what the law of life is operating upon.

Here's a great way to look at it. If you don't understand the laws of conductivity, electrical principles, and you just take some live wires and grab hold of them, or you touch the wrong wires together, and they blow up, or they electrocute you or even kill you.

Electricity is no respecter of persons. It doesn't care how nice of a person you are. If you don't understand the law and the principle of electricity it doesn't matter how good you are. You're going to have some problems.

"Life is no respecter of persons. It's a respecter of principle. It's a respecter of consciousness." Share this Tweet!

If you learn how to float you could be a really evil person, and you'll still float in the water. Think about that. If you know how to fly a plane and operate in alignment with the laws of aerodynamics, you can be a really bad person, and you'll still fly that plane.

The plane will fly, because, at least in that area, you are in integrity with the principle. It's principle. It's not personal.

Listen in to discover the other key distinction around this topic and for the full explanation and support.

And remember, self-help is shelf help -- you have everything you need already!
