You Deserve to Eat the Banana

In 2017, I was at a luxury retreat in Costa Rica. It was one of those trips that came as a synchronicity and a manifestation. I wanted to be somewhere warm in February, and I didn’t have any plans until a friend emailed me a discounted price to attend a week long experience in the jungles and mountains of lush Costa Rica.
I replied to her email, “I’m In.”
I booked my ticket, and off I went.
While at the location there truly was luxury everywhere. Marble floors, peacocks roaming around, epic views from the infinity pool, and my favourite was the throne at the big wooden meal table where the group of 10 would enjoy meals prepared by a private chef with local foods.
Am I a millionaire? No.
The whole thing was only $1500 + air fare because I knew the speaker at the event.
People spend money on a lot of things, but don’t always value themselves enough to buy the things that will truly delight them.
You know what I realized a while ago…
I deserve to be delighted by life. We all do.
In fact, life wants us to appreciate life. We were meant to enjoy our senses and appreciate Nature’s epic creations, including human experiences.
So, 
Why does a part of me feel like I’m bragging while writing this.
Why do we get the “Who am I” inner dialogue when reaching for something we want, or sharing about it?
Because we have bought into yucky social programming that misunderstands humility for poverty and never having what you desire so that everyone can have their share. Don’t take too much, don’t be too big, don’t be too ____________ fill in the blank.
We do not need to be denied things in our lives in order for others to receive, or to be perceived as not greedy. In other words, we don’t need to be denied the life that will delight us in order to be a “good person.”
This brings me to two distinctions:
Unhealthy Entitlement
Healthy Entitlement
Unhealthy Entitlement
Unhealthy entitlement stems from fear. Arrogance is when fear and anger meet out of an imbalanced, egocentric stance that “you deserve” which does not take into account other people, laws, or natural order. Arrogance is selfish and doesn’t care for the wellbeing of others. Entitlement is mostly used in this context, but there is some truth to knowing- on some level- you deserve good things and for life to have peace.
I used to only know unhealthy entitlement. I thought I was a big-shot singer in university. I employed bratty, diva entitlement, rather than healthy entitlement. I used arrogance as armour to protect myself from my own insecurity. I never felt good enough no matter the compliments, awards or praise. No matter my body fat percentage or amount of amazing friends, I simply never felt good enough. My entitlement came from fear: Fear I would be found out, and fear that I didn’t really deserve what I dreamt of and would never get there.
Eventually, I found there was a better way.
Healthy Entitlement
Healthy entitlement is when we all rise together. From a healthy place of deep, inner deserving- simply because you exist- you can feel pulled to have something or create something from your core creative self that is 100% empowering for both yourself and other people. In a a lot of cases we all want the same things: Joy, abundance, connection. While, in other cases we are drawn by our own unique inner light that desires unique experiences or accomplishments that differ from other people. Like a rose is different from a violet, but they both have basic flower needs.
Healthy entitlement also can come with some challenges. Let’s say you go to college, and achieve more than anyone else has in your family. Potentially, you’ve just evolved your lineage to rise up. But, others might judge you as “too good” and betraying the family. It can get tricky. You will not always be understood by others. Regardless of outside opinion, you need to feel into your own truth in order to stay in that healthy place of balance. 
You Deserve a Banana
So, here we are as a group of 10 people from all over the world, in beautiful Costa Rica, walking up a winding dirt road after swimming under a waterfall.
I was chatting to one of the owners of the centre when one of the participants walked up meekly asking, “Can I have a banana?”
I looked to my right to see a tree with an abundance of bananas, beside other banana trees with an abundance of bananas.
The owner said, “Yes, of course.”
But, her question puzzled me, and also pushed a button.
Of course she could have a banana! The bananas are there waiting to fulfill their life purpose of nourishing other beings. They would fall and rot anyways, becoming nourishing soil for even more growth. 
Nature is abundance. What do we feel separate from that?
I found myself going on a thought tangent all of the sudden.
When did we become so apologetic of our own deserving of nature’s abundance and basic needs. And more importantly, why do we feel so freakin’ unworthy?
It’s been societally, religiously, culturally programmed so we stay in line and follow rules. But, it is incredibly toxic to live life constantly asking permission to avoid the dreaded feelings associated with “getting in trouble” and not feeling like life and nature is on your side. Living this way reduces human beings to fearful creatures with loads of defences unable to trust one another or life.
Of course, this banana abundance is circumstantial, if you hop a fence and go steal someone’s crop of bananas that would not be the same thing at all. That would be unhealthy, imbalanced entitlement.
Nature wants you to have the banana. Flowers want to be smelled, trees effortlessly provide oxygen, the sun gives light and life. It is natural to give and receive.
On a more practical level, your dreams themselves want you to experience them, people want to support you, many factors and resources are working with you, for you, just to be you. 
We deserve to deserve.
“What you seek is seeking you.” RUMI
Unfortunately, we have thought we need to work really hard, struggle and strive to “earn” our needs, and desires. And, sometimes that works. But at what cost? Our presence, our peace, our wellbeing?
What if we were always meant to be worthy of our needs, and deserving of our dreams? What if it was always natural to reach for the banana and let nature give us nourishment?
I like that plan better.
I started to live that way, and you can too.
It is your nature.
Learn how to access healthy entitlement for yourself, your life and your loved ones.

Woke Philosophy Now Threatening Science Itself

Woke Philosophy Now Threatening Science Itself

Our government and mainstream media are increasingly turning their backs on “evidence-based decision-making,” a critical feature of the Enlightenment, classical liberalism, and the scientific method, in favor of “decision-based evidence-making.” In other words, essentially lying by bending the truth to support whatever politically convenient position the government and the deep state…

Our Conscious Bias on Kyle Rittenhouse, Ghislaine Maxwell & Ahmaud Arbery

Our Conscious Bias on Kyle Rittenhouse, Ghislaine Maxwell & Ahmaud Arbery

Too many, make their decisions purely because they fall on either the right or left side of the political aisle. Truth is arbitrary in these situations because the most important thing for them is getting a “win” for their team. This is why so much division exists within the United States. Gaining political power for factions of our government is more important than…

The Criminal Justice System Goes Woke

The Criminal Justice System Goes Woke

The old “three strikes and you’re out” meaning, three felony convictions, and you face jail for life for thugs unsuitable for mixing with decent society, filled up the jails as was intended. Now, under the Progressive government process, they’re simply back out on the streets, often not even going through the trial and conviction process before they commit other heinous crimes…

Omicron: The United States of FEAR

Omicron: The United States of FEAR

In this issue of the report, we give the first modeling analysis of Omicron and its anticipated transmissibility based on the S1 receptor binding domain mutations.  Fortunately, these preliminary analyses suggest lower transmissibility than for Delta. This means if Omicron supplants Delta as the predominant strain, we may see the first turn for the crisis where cases could wind down…

Exposed Coverups Reveal Ugly Frauds Behind Fake Media

Clear factual evidence supports lots of reasons why Democrats have much to worry about following broadly predicted GOP Congressional victories when U.S. House committee leaderships flip from focusing all attention on “getting Trump” and reversing his policies to serious scandals, including criminal acts, perpetrated by high-level members of…

Disney Relocates 2,000 Workers to Florida due to California’s Oppressive Covid Politics

Since the obtuse pandering ideologies of Covid-19 redefined the economics of California with their narratives of mandates and lockdowns, Walt Disney World Executives were gut-punched in their pocketbooks. They have now started gathering their visionaries and intelligence forces for a new plan of action to defend the Magic Kingdom from financial ruin…

The Hazards of Electric Cars Are Many, the Number of Cars Will be Few

The Hazards of Electric Cars Are Many, the Number of Cars Will be Few

The electric automobile will never exceed 10% of the cars on the road. All automobile manufacturers invest in their output, and all will be disappointed in their sales. Surely not what President Biden or Governor Newsom of California are planning for. For as long as the present government is in power, they will be pushing the electric car as another means to run our lives…

Anthony Fauci’s Role in the USA of FEAR

Anthony Fauci’s Role in the USA of FEAR

Dr. Fauci, the highest-overpaid employee of the US Government, is developing a reputation, like Joe Biden, for being wrong nearly all of the time. He moves about in the Progressive dream world of absolute power. He said: “when they criticize science, they’re criticizing me.” Precisely what science is he talking about? It must be ‘political science’ because…

The Biggest Lie in CRT

The Biggest Lie in CRT

CRT is no more based on truth than is a KKK pamphlet, and really a KKK pamphlet and CRT have a lot in common. Both pretend to provide accurate facts and accurate histories – but both cherry-pick facts to create a pre-arranged narrative. And both narratives are overtly racist. Really, the only difference between CRT adherents and the KKK is the…

FBI’s Informant Program Underhandedly Targets Americans

FBI’s Informant Program Underhandedly Targets Americans

Director Wray’s misleading testimony to Congress in March led Green Beret Jeremy Brown to very publicly release an interview he audiotaped with FBI recruiters in December 2020. In it, they offered him money to become an informant just one month prior to the Capitol event. He refused, turned whistleblower, and began sharing the audiotape on every social media outlet he could. That one decision changed Brown’s life forever…

Truth is, it’s Definitely a Pandemic of the Vaccinated

Truth is, it’s Definitely a Pandemic of the Vaccinated

As data from the most heavily vaccinated countries in the world, such as Israel, Singapore, Iceland, etc., now unequivocally demonstrate, the vaccinated are the most sickened. Data from the British government shows that the infection rate among fully vaccinated people in their 40s was 100% higher than among the unvaccinated. In the Irish counties of Waterford and Carlow, where 99.7% and 98% of all adults are vaccinated, cases are exploding…
