人生中，你並非必須去做任何事。(In life, you do not have to do anything.)
全部都只是一個「你 being 什麼」的問題。(It is all a question of what you are being.)
尼爾：他沒有搞懂他目前的「不是很快樂(not being very happy)」跟他「沒有時間、沒有錢或沒有愛」之間的關係。
尼爾：他發現…以「being快樂」為出發(by “being happy” to begin with)，他擁有他「是快樂的」所需的一切！
正是如此。事先決定「你選擇(讓自己)being什麼」，會使你產生那樣的經驗。(Deciding ahead of time what you choose to be produces that in your experience.)
尼爾：「有沒有 Being 你想 Being 的，才是問題的關鍵。」。（To be,or not to be.That is the question.）
完全正確(Precisely.)。快樂是一種心思狀態(state of mind，或俗稱心境。但要特別注意的是，mind指的是頭腦心智，不是指內心heart的心。)。正如所有的心思狀態那樣，它會以物質的形式複製它自己。
「所有的心思狀態都會自我繁殖。」(All states of mind reproduce themselves.)
The way to set this creative process (and that's what this is… the process of creation) into motion is to look at what it is you want to “have,” ask yourself what you think you would “be” if you “had” that, then go right straight to being.
In this way you reverse the way you've been using the Be-Do-Have paradigm—in actuality, set it right—and work with, rather than against, the creative power of the universe.
Here is a short way of stating this principle: In life, you do not have to do
It is all a question of what you are being.
This is one of the three messages I will touch on again at the end of our dialogue. I will close the book with it.
For now, and to illustrate this, think of a person who just knows that if he could only have a little more time, alittle more money, or a little more love, he'd be truly happy.
Neale: He does not get the connection between his “not being very happy” right now and his not having the time, money, or love he wants.
That's right. On the other hand, the person who is “being” happy seems to have time to do everything that's really important, all the money that's needed, and enough love to last a lifetime.
Neale: He finds he has everything he needs to “be happy” … by “being happy” to begin with!
Deciding ahead of time what you choose to be produces that in your experience.
Neale: “To be, or not to be. That is the question.”
Precisely. Happiness is a state of mind. And like all states of mind, it reproduces itself in physical form.
There's a statement for a refrigerator magnet: “All states of mind reproduce themselves.”
