A Conversation with...
ATH: Bijan, let's start off with a paradox. I would expect, and probably most people, that due to the nature of the Mr. Universe contest, someone like yourself who has won that title two years in a row, would be telling me that I could achieve my dreams... but it takes years and years of hard work, much sweat, and intense discipline. Yet, you seem to be saying the exact opposite?
BA: It was, I believe, about a year and a half straight... And the number of seminars per day varied as others became involved, I worked with them, and they in turn started helping out giving the seminars also. But for a year and a half straight, I gave between 1 and 8 Effortless Prosperity Seminars a day.
It was such a joy… I met thousands of people as they came through the seminar, and many of them are still involved with spreading the word. Some of these beautiful souls, I have worked with intensely, and they are now facilitating the seminars themselves.
The number of Seminars per day now varies according to which facilitators are in town and are willing to make a commitment for a specific time each day… for thirty days. This has taken off, as you can imagine, and I'm receiving request to speak from all over the world, but I still do a weekly Seminar on Thursdays when I'm in town.
ATH: So you've been personally financing the whole thing? I mean the free 30 day seminars, the places to hold them, The Effortless Prosperity Center, and…
BA: In the beginning, yes. Now there is a little income from book sales, and such. And, you see, people who have gone through the seminar, and have found their lives completely changed by it... well some can be grateful and generous - and all want to see the work continue. But on the whole... lets just say that it's a good thing I practice Effortless Prosperity.
It has grown much bigger than one man can handle by himself. We now maintain a central office here in the International city of Las Vegas. We have experimented with community programs... like Effortless Prosperity in prisons, and also with the Effortless Prosperity For Children in the educational system... and with radio shows... and satellite facilities. We are always looking for ways to reach more people with the simple message that life can be effortless and full of joy.
ATH: Now Bijan, I'm going to play devil's advocate here. You say that your 30 day seminar is free. Yet I have seen in some of the trade publications - you've been busy… speaking everywhere it seems, selling many books - and I've seen price tags attached.
BA: That is true. I am asked to speak at various places around the world, and sometimes the people that invite me to speak charge others to come and listen. If someone is making money off of my speaking, I have absolutely no problem with receiving a speakers fee. You see, I am effortlessly prosperous. That means I am open to receiving.
And of course, the energy that goes into printing and distributing books is tremendous. And the people who do this work must be compensated for their time fairly. But as we just discussed with the free seminars, I am also open giving. To me they are one and the same. Without one, the other finds no expression. The only thing that we ask of anyone who wishes to attend one of our free 30 day seminars is to make a personal commitment... a commitment to attend one of the daily sessions, each day for a thirty day period.
In return for that commitment... and remember that commitment is not to me or to anyone else... it is strictly a commitment between a person and themselves... In return for that commitment, I promise a new and better life.
ATH: And what happens at this thirty day seminar? Why an hour and a half a day for thirty days? Why not do a three day weekend?
BA: A couple of reasons. Many can not find the time to give up three full days of their life; kids, work, school, other commitments. It is a much easier to find a spare hour and a half a day. Another reason is the design of the seminar. We meet for an hour a day - the learning and realizations continues throughout the day as we practice what we have learned during the meeting.
There are thirty principles to Effortless Prosperity. We work on one principle a day. They build upon themselves. And at the end of thirty days I guarantee that you will not be the same person you were when you started it.
ATH: How about the books?
BA: The books are designed on the same principles... Thirty lessons; one each day for a month. The lessons in the book are all about undoing the old belief systems of limitation that we bought into from others, and learning that by giving up we can create what we desire without limits. I think my inner voice was quite wise in guiding me to present the material in this way. A short lesson and a full day to experience it's effect in your life.
And as I said, they build upon themselves, and at the end of the thirty days, you are a completely different person than when you began. You are well on your way to effortless and prosperous life.
ATH: How are the books going? I understand that you have the Effortless Principles presented to cover every age group beginning at two years old.
BA: Very well! The books, of course, allow me to reach many more people than I could ever hope to in person. We have done out best to keep them affordable to people who are not yet prosperous. They are no more expensive than the average book in a book store… perhaps a little less. The same is true for the few tapes that are available. I would be defeating my main purpose of creating world peace if it were any other way..
ATH: Bijan, thank you for sharing your time and the information. It has been enjoyable to say the least. You are a warm and wonderful person and I can not help but feel the sincerity of your desire for helping others and your commitment to world peace.
BA: And the same with you, my brother. We should do this again... soon... and just sit, and talk, and share the miracles in our lives.
