Frugal meaning

Morning Gratitude Challenge Day 6 – Frugal Meaning – How Frugal Money Management Violates Happiness

Frugal meaning: To live a Frugal life means to you live on less than you can effort. And that you are using fewer resources, such as energy, or money than are available to you. But how does that affect your happiness in life?

A life reduced to people’s physical basic needs

This sounds like a real pain in the ass to most people, because they rather want to have more than they need, because they think they really need it. The first problem is, most people do not know nor make a difference between what they want and what they need. But in fact, living a frugal life can be very liberating.

How comes, that people think they need more and more?

Consum bitches are not born as such,
but raised and educated to become ones!

Advertisements and the permanent presence of status symbols are probably the strongest influencers for the desire to compete with others. So people want a bigger car, house, a shiny boat at the yacht harbor, expensive perfume and makeup, pumped up lips and boobs, an extraordinary loud „knallpot“ is status symbols. (Knallpot is the Dutch word for the exhaust pipe, which is also used in the Indonesian language.)

Frugal meaning: What people really need?

So, let’s go back to the physical basic needs. All you really need, are only the physical things, that would kill you after a short time if you would not get hold of them. Those are in this priority:

  1. Breath – without breathing you are only able to survive for minutes until unrepairable damage is done to your brain or you will even pass away
  2. Drink – without drinking it will be a question of days
  3. Disposal – without piing and booing you will probably get around a little longer than without drinking until the body poisons itself
  4. Eat – you are able to get around without food for a few months

That’s are the basic physical needs of humans, mammals, animals, and plants. Anything else is convenient. There is nothing wrong with convenience. But all of that, what you might think you need is, in fact, only something you want. Why would you want to live a frugal life?

What might be the reason to live a frugal life below your financial possibilities?

Not spending all the money you earn gives you the possibility to save some money. This saved money can be invested and over time it can create a passive income for you.
So the real reason behind it is to be able at one day to live just from the dividend of your invested assets. So move more money from consuming to investing.

But how does this work?

First of all, one needs to go through the mental process to give money a higher value than material assets.
And one needs to learn the difference between what you need and what you want.
This might be:

  • Not having a car,
  • Staying at basic accommodation,
  • Living in a smaller flat then you can afford,
  • Drinking tap water, if it is clean enough, instead of expensive lolly drinks. This would have an additional health benefit, because of the reduced sugar intake.

Does Frugal Money Management Violate Happiness?

For me, frugality means I hate to waste resources, such as time, energy, money, health, and happiness.

Frugal meaning: Stop wasting time

Wasting time is the biggest sin of all for me. For example, a waste of time for me is a day without love. Because time is our most valuable asset. Any second which is gone is gone forever, and it will never come back.

Frugal meaning: Stop wasting energy

Wasting energy is another big one for me. In fact:

Everything is energy,
And energy is all there is

And due to that, there is an abundance of energy available. On the one hand, the energy never gets lost, it only gets changed into a different kind of energy. But on the other hand the effectiveness principle of nature. So, due to my respect for nature, I am a big fan to use any kind of energy as effectively as possible. For example not running the air condition or the heater if a window or the door is open. Rather using passive heating or cooling system instead of electrical ones. This also saves some money on the electricity bill.

Frugal meaning: Stop wasting money

Frugal meaningThat brings me to another kind of energy, which is money. Apart from being a conveniently exchangeable asset, money is also a wonderful communication tool for the value of something. It describes the energy of goods and services. That’s why I’m having a hard time to pay for something which I don’t need or to pay more than necessary. So I keep choosing goods and services which are as fancy as necessary, and as basic as possible.

Once I was traveling together with my sister to Cape Town, I booked the cheapest Airbnb place next to the place where I wanted to go to. That was near to the starting point of the Two Oceans Marathon? When she saw our basic accommodation she asked me: „How much do you value yourself?“
The low price of the accommodation and the convenient location was essential for me. But she would have loved to half a big pool and a fancy apartment.
I believe that I only can save money, which I don’t spend. My sister believes that anything she spends will come back a thousand times to her. Actually that’s a pretty clever method. And curiously it seems to work for her! Unfortunately, I have not understood yet, how she does it. If someone is able to explain it to me, I’d be more than happy to listen and learn from it.

Frugal meaning: Stop wasting resources

Not wasting resources means to me also, to protect the environment, by creating as little trash as possible. I do that by buying the most simple things that are just being able to fulfill their purpose. And to avoid to buy expensive branded clothes. Or to walk or to choose the smallest possible vehicle, that can bring me to my destination.

Frugal meaning: Stop wasting your health

Even eating healthy is not violating my frugalism. Because fresh fruits and vegetables are usually the cheapest food you can buy. Walking instead of driving or jogging instead of going to the gym improves my fitness and still saves money for the gym or transport.

How Frugal Money Management Violates Happiness?

And finally, don’t save on your fun and pleasure. Most people consider happiness with spending money. I consider this as complete nonsense. Because being happy is a choice. And This choice is completely free of charge!

And whoever believes that a new pair of shoes, jewelry or a Ferrari makes you happy, is wrong, at least in the long-run. All of those status symbols serve your happiness only for a short time.

Being happy comes from continuous growth. This is the best method I have found so far. This means:

  • learning,
  • exercising,
  • sweating,
  • implementing,
  • finally to embody it,
  • and repeat!

Here are some pretty good thoughts from Cherry Tung. Even if I don’t agree with her, that one should not care about the money one spends on security. Because security is only an emotion, which you can train, e.i. by improving your mental strength to increase your comfort zone. And this will rather transform you, than life insurance or any other products that promise you safety and security.

  • Bali ist 24 Stunden Offline am Mittwoch, dem 25. März von 6 Uhr morgens bis Donnerstag, dem 26. März um 6 Uhr morgens (Bali, Perth, Singapore Zeitzone).
  • Und alle Geschäfte und Restaurants werden geschlossen sein. Nur Hotels bieten ihren Gästen den grundlegendsten Service. Dafür müssen die Mitarbeiter aber 24 Stunden auf der Arbeit bleiben. Denn die dürfen ja auch nicht auf die Straße, um nach der Arbeit nach hause zu fahren. Versuch so etwas mal einer deutschen Gewerkschaft klar zu machen …
  • Weiterhin wird der Flughafen geschlossen sein für 24 Stunden von 6 Uhr am 25. März. Und am Flughafen wird der Betrieb wieder aufgenommen am 26. März um 06:00 Uhr Zentral-Indonesischer Zeit (CITA)

Grateful Meaning - Meaning of Gratefulness

Morning Gratitude Challenge Day 5 – Grateful Meaning – What means Gratefulness?

Grateful Meaning = „giving or revealing thanks, primarily to other people“

Grateful Meaning - Meaning of GratefulnessThis is what dictionaries and phrasebooks say about grateful meaning. But within this blog, I will share some deeper thoughts about it. And offer you some supplementary grateful meanings.

Don’t you think that it is much easier if you are convinced in your heart, that prosperity is your birthright? And wouldn’t you achieve financial freedom much quicker, if you are determined to be financially free? Due to the Law of Attraction. The problem is, how can we get that conviction? Here are some thoughts about gratitude, and how gratefulness helps.

Many people are too negative in their attitude. In this blog, I will talk about how we can avoid the negative. How can we get into a fundamentally positive attitude, that ultimately makes you wealthy and happy?

Do you remember the concept of responsibility? It says that we always have the opportunity to choose our RESPONSE. Because there is a gap between an event and our response to it. A free time gap. We can fill this gap as we see fit. Our freedom of choice exists in this gap.

3 Common Misconceptions About Responsibility

Most people talk about reality, rather than about a stimulus. All events, all situations are only stimuli. We always respond only to stimuli. And we can choose how to respond to a stimulus. So we decide what we believe!
Many people think that they automatically react to certain circumstances. That they can not determine their own emotions and reactions. And therefore they are not responsible for them. The truth is, that there is no negative automatism to which we are unconditionally subjugated.
The power of commitment is not clear to most people. If we have a big goal, we should commit ourselves to achieve that. Then something magical happens. We will choose in these gaps the response, that brings us closer to our goal.


Grateful Meaning = Living in the Present

Today we are talking about a tool that helps us live the concept of responsibility better. And how we can „control“ our feelings as well. We often believe, that we respond to circumstances, and our fellow human beings. However, it looks very different. In reality, we are reacting to a world that exists only in our own minds. John Milton writes in his book „Paradise Lost„:

“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make
a heaven of hell,
a hell of heaven..”

Do you have serious fears sometimes? Do you worry too much, at times? Today we will deepen a thought from this guided meditation:

How to practice gratitude?

When we are worried, we generate negative energy. Let’s try to imagine this negative energy as a black cloud that ultimately catches us. This black cloud gradually destroys more and more positive things in and around us. It then dominates a sense of impending disaster. Now we have to come to an important realization: We created this cloud ourselves! And if so, then we can also create another one: A bright, positive cloud.

One more word to the black cloud. People surrounded by it, no longer find peace. They only see what goes wrong in their lives and in the world, a pathetic state. And indeed: People in black clouds feel helpless and delivered.

The feeling of weakness gets intensified by the contemporaries, which walk through life with an eternally smile. Those who explain, that one only needs to utilize the power of positive thinking. But the problem is, that negative thoughts have much more power in real life than the positive ones.

That doesn’t mean, that we have to put up with the negative thoughts. However, we should accept that those are a serious danger. So we need to know if we want to be positive. And if we want to be metaphorically surrounded by a bright white cloud, it requires effort and work. But it’s possible. And the effort is absolutely worth it.

Grateful Meaning = Thinking positive about the presence and the past

The advantage of the worries

„Advantage of worries“ – that sounds absurd. But what could that be? The idea behind it is quite simple: if there were no advantage, people would not worry. Psychologists say: Worries allow us to feel in control.

If people are worried, they feel they can prevent something worse from happening. And so they get stuck to their worries. Worrying becomes a kind of ritual. And as long as this ritual is kept alive, it is said that the really bad things won’t happen.

But which worldview is hidden behind it? A person worries only when he believes the universe is indifferent to him. The basic assumption for that is: I am alone and depending on the mercy of a more hostile universe. It is the legitimation for this belief. Religious people are clearly at an advantage. They believe that there is a God who cares for them. And because God cares for them, they do not have to worry about themselves. Worried are only those ones, who are not taken care of.

It is already very helpful to develop a friendlier picture of the universe. We can do that without any spiritual or even religious background. After all, the Universe serves us with all we need for life: air to breathe, food and water … It also provides us with the raw materials we need to make our lives comfortable. And now it gets interesting: as we become aware of this „support“ through the universe, we minimize our worries. In other words, living gratitude is the opposite of a life full of worries. And those who are careful, are automatically grateful.

The Power of Gratefulness

Grateful Meaning = The opposite of fear about the future

Suppose there is a kind of power of gratefulness in the universe. And that we feel well when we are connected to this field. That then we have better ideas, helpful inspirations, flashes of thought. Then we are also better able to deal with problems, to recognize solutions, recognize and accept offers of help from other people … The power of gratefulness that enables us to literally outgrow ourselves.

Whenever we feel connected to this source, we don’t need to worry anymore. We literally can’t do it anymore.

How do we perceive this power of gratefulness? By gratitude. Gratitude is one of the most underrated remedies we have. Because gratitude increases our ability to perceive things. And gratitude comes from mindfulness. When we are grateful we become more attentive! And extremely positively minded, grief, fear, and mistrust goes away.

But it reaches even further: Within this power of gratefulness, we are able to do things we never thought to be able to. Because, if we practice gratitude, we are able to perceive things we never imagined to be possible to experience. The path to happiness is thus in knowing. The universe works miraculously, we just have to recognize it.

The tool

A Simple Exercise Against Grief And Gear

grateful meaning

Even the dog gets pimped and dressed up for the gratitude ritual in Bali

I remind myself to be grateful every morning with an exercise: I write down some things, which I am grateful for. It might also be sufficient to list these things silently in your head. But it has become a routine for me to write these thoughts down. Of course, the things I am grateful for are often repeated. But new ones are also added from time to time.

Note: This is not about the things we should be grateful for. Then the exercise becomes a burden. Because we are not connected to our emotions. Rather, the gratitude exercise is about, really feeling and visualizing the things, we are truly grateful for.

So after writing down a few things, I’m quiet for a while, focusing on the feeling of gratitude. I feel that it comes from my heart. My heart expands, it opens. And then I imagine that I have a connection to the power of gratefulness. To the source. Then I am fulfilled and one with the power of infinite giving. Filled with infinite gratitude. Nothing and nobody can irritate me in this state.

When we train with this tool, we feel the effect more and more. We literally float in the power of gratefulness. This exercise can be repeated anytime during the day. Already utilize it at the first small sign of worry. The more often we do it, the more consistent is the connection to the power of gratefulness.

Brian Tracy

Once I heard this story about Brian Tracy. A coach that I adore. He got throat cancer some years ago. Imagine what it means for a speaker to get pharyngeal cancer. Unable to talk anymore. Irradiations, Chemotherapie …

And do you know what Brian did after the surgery that removed the malignant tumor? As soon as the effect of anesthesia passed, he started working on his next book. Right after the surgery. Why? Brian’s words about it: because he had such a great sense of gratitude for doing exactly what he loves. He still could. Write. The rest would show up. But as long as he had that feeling of gratitude, emotionally nothing could happen to him. Today Brian Tracy is holding seminars again.

I do not know about you. I do not know if I could react in a situation like Brian’s. But it is good to have such role models. And the gratitude exercise is certainly the right tool. We can best prepare for difficult situations by coping well with normal situations.

Being grateful for what?

Grateful Meaning = Expecting the Best From the Future

We can be grateful for so many things: that we

  • can breathe
  • can stand straight
  • have no back pain


  • warm water
  • an apple
  • not having toothache
  • our house

and if it exists, for

  • our home
  • our family
  • the pleasant weather

And even in bad weather:

  • for the roof over our heads.

Isn’t it really the case, that the universe is wonderful for us?

It may be that some things are not so pleasant at the moment. But how many thousands of things are doing great work in our bodies and around us! We can not take these things for granted just because they are always there. On the contrary, whatever is there can remind us that the power source is always there. And while we perceive or acknowledge these things inwardly, we can try to feel how gratitude flows from our hearts.  Then we can stop acknowledging. And we can feel how our hearts are so grateful, that we cannot and must not name the blessings of our lives. In this state, we are then open to the connection with the power of gratitude.

The best use of the Gratitude Exercise tool is twofold: Once every morning. And then whenever you receive negative signals. For example, because you are worried. In the best case already at the first tiny negative signal. The shortest way back to the positive emotional realm is if we haven’t gotten far into the negative emotions. We need to know that with this tool we can stop all negative thinking. Really everything. But it requires discipline. Or, to put it mildly, as long as we do not control our mind, we are spiritually immature.


Grateful Meaning = Being Happy With What You Got

When we are connected to the source of power or carry the feeling of infinite gratitude within us, we have absolute inner peace. Of course, most people are looking for happiness outside of their bodies. They want money, prestige, luxury … But real happiness is only in us. There is not one world out there. Only the world that exists in our own mind.

To maintain peace, we have to work on it all the time. Constant use is required. Periodically and whenever needed. Because inner peace is an active state. We have to work for it. That requires discipline – but it’s definitely worth the effort.

Gratitude extends our horizons. We also see the good in the universe. The connection to the Forcefield gives us this consciousness. With a broad horizon, we can see how much good life offers to us.

Grateful Meaning = Living Frugalism

My idea is quite simple: if we have a connection to the power of gratefulness, we can accomplish great things. And only then. This means that ultimately our responsibility is limited. (And that takes the load off our shoulders.) Limited because we „only“ have the responsibility to connect to the power of gratefulness. The rest is done by it or the law of attraction. So we just have to do one step at a time. The rest follows automatically. This thought is encouraging. The courage to be happy.

Of course, it’s all relatively easy, as long as we’re not feeling really bad. But, we can prepare for real emergencies. By practicing daily. On the other hand, we can look around for real pain. Then we discover people who still have to suffer much worse and who still remain cheerful and grateful. Like Brian Tracy. There are people whose connection to the power of gratefulness becomes even stronger when circumstances become very difficult. And these people can give us courage. As Viktor Frankl says: „Every suffering has its meaning.“

Conclusion: Grateful Meaning

Grateful Meaning: The highway to getting out of scarcity

I believe there is a power of gratefulness that cares for us. When we are in touch with this power of gratefulness, we are fine. Really good. When we recognize the things for which we are thankful, we connect with this power of gratefulness. All worries and negativity disappear. We have a state of great confidence and deep peace.

At first, it is irrelevant which world view we have. Because it is very easy to check: When we do the gratitude exercise, we feel better. We feel strong, confident, positive and good. When our hearts expand in gratitude and we have established contact with this power of gratefulness, we feel confident in ourselves. Then we know that true prosperity is our birthright. And we know that there is no other way than to become rich. Financially free. Our gratitude mixes with confidence. And for that confidence, we are filled with even greater gratitude.

To do to Embody Grateful Meaning:

  1. Do you have a morning routine? Does the gratitude exercise have room in it?
  2. When can you integrate the gratitude exercise into your day? In which situations?
  • If you are standing in line somewhere.
  • When the waiting loop on the phone is endless.
  • When you got stuck in traffic.
  • Whenever you have to wait.

Waiting is a stupid activity. But using this time for the gratitude exercise is wise.

  1. Do you have a gratitude journal? If not get one. This can be a notebook from paper or an electronic one, it can be a task list, or simply your calendar.
  2. Write down five things you are grateful for.

Benefits of Gratitude

Morning Gratitude Challenge Day 1 – Benefits of Gratitude

What are the Major Benefits of Gratitude? Well, meanwhile it is even scientifically proven (whatever that means), that gratitude does not only influence your mind and thoughts but also your physical condition. So, listen to some thoughts about

The Benefits of Gratitude

from Dr. Deepak Chopra.

Here are his key points about the

Benefits of Gratitude

„This is Dr. Deepak Chopra. And I’m delighted to announce the 31 days of gratitude program …

The 31 days of gratitude are going to be led by Christine Meekhof. I want to thank Christine Meekoff as well for leading this 

And our pillars for well-being are

  • nourish,
  • move,
  • love,
  • meditate,
  • sleep, and
  • grow.

As a part of the growth experience, one of the best things we can do, is feel gratitude.

One of the things we have done at the Chopra Center, as part of the Chopra Foundation research, is that we’ve seen at a very fundamental level,

What happens when you experience gratitude:

So people who have experienced gratitude, their inflammatory markers of cytokines in the blood go down. And the inflammation in the body goes down. Now we know for example, that inflammatory is the common factor, in almost 95% of chronic diseases. Only 5% of diseases related to gene mutations are fully penetrated. The rest are infuenced bys lifestyle. Including the

  • quality of your sleep,
  • weather you meditate,
  • how you manage your stress,
  • how much you move,
  • mind-body coordination,
  • practices like yoga, and
  • breathing

which stimulates the vagus nerve. And allow your parasympathetic nervous, system which is associated with self healing, to come into the forefront, rather than allow your sympathetic nervous system to always be on thrive. Which of course causes inflammation.

Some movement, yoga, breathing, these are very important modalities. And then of course, it’s also the quality of your emotions. If you’re experiencing:

  • love,
  • compassion,
  • joy,
  • peace of mind,
  • equanimity

your body is in the mode of self regulation and self healing. Add to that gratitude!

Gratitude is the easiest way to trigger the healing response.

And what we call homeostasis of self-regulation. Gratitude also opens up your heart. And is the window to abundance consciousness.

Because when you’re grateful for what you already have, it welcomes other things into your life. And abundance consciousness is the basis of wealth consciousness.

Wealth is not just money.Wealth is

The Ability to Generate Abundance

in all aspects of your life. That includes:

  • love, 
  • and relationships,
  • with professional colleagues,
  • relationship with society,
  • relationship with, that which we called the ecosystem, forces of nature,
  • and relationship ultimately with the universe.

Opening our heart to our deeper core consciousness, which we call the soul, is how we create abundance consciousness. Which allowes the flow of all things that are evolutionary in our life. Gratitude is very important. And of course in JAYO we also nurish

  • your body,
  • nurish your mind,
  • your deeper motions,
  • nourish your body with healthy food,
  • your mind with curiosity, and wonder, and intellectual exploration,
  • and nourish your soul thru contemplative self inquiry.

And meditation and gratitude are the window to abundance Consciousness. Which is what gratitude does. And finally at JAYO we also believe, that you can nurish your connection with the planet, with the earth by

Grounding yourself

So you know, the more you ground your body with the body of the earth. Wether it is by walking barefoot on the ground, or on the grass, or on the beach or using grounding devices 

When you ground yourself, you reset your biological rhythms, your circadian rhythms. And you reestablish harmony with the earth and through the earth, with the cosmos and with the universe.

Because the connection to the underlying field of all possibilities, from where the universe is a constant experience in our own Consciousness. That underlying ground of being is our own inner self, beyond our ego mind. And beyond all the constructs we have about reality … 

Join us if you want to focus on opening the door to

The Benefits of Gratitude

  • abundance,
  • healing,
  • self-regulation, and
  • decrease inflammation

Your Gratitude Challenge Starting Point

Your Morning Gratitude Challenge – Gratitude Meditation Challenge

From today we start to work towards your morning gratitude. You’re aiming to receive your 1st lesson. This will be your day 1 task and therefore the gift will be a lovely meditation from Deepak Chopra. In order to remind you, I am going to send you each day one task in the morning. Then you got twenty-four hours to complete the task. Are you in?

A note about the audio:

“I am providing the sound files because your ear is your emotional interface. You will realize that very quickly when you hear the computer voice. It sounds a bit metallic, because I reduced it to the lowest resolution, to decrease data volume and download time for you. And if there is an initial dislike of the sound of the voice, this will go away after one or two minutes.  In fact, we are learning with emotions up to 20 times faster than learning dry facts. Listening lets you memorize 4 to 5 times more than reading. Reading and listening at the same time about 7 times faster than reading alone. And if you do something, like taking your thinking time and writing down the answers, making an action plan, and execute the first step, you can boost it up to learning about 20 times more, compared to reading only.

So, I strongly recommend to hear and read at the same time AND do the exercises. To make the best use and get the best result out of this program.”

Open your mind for your morning gratitude and abundance challenge

    Take the tasks, ideas, techniques, tools, meditations, incantations, recommendations, … I will share with you during your gratitude and abundance challenge without any judgment. Easily said, hard to do … at least commit to doing your best, to be open-minded and allow to let it all in.
  2. Don’t believe a word I say!
    Nor the words from anyone else who gives you advice during this challenge, such as Deepak Chopra, Tony Robbins, Leo Guera, and all of the other gurus. This might surprise you. Does it?
    I just want to encourage you to think for yourself. Feel into the recommendations, tools, practices … and decide yourself if it resonates with you. There is nothing right nor wrong about it. None of it is true nor false. Just accept that everyone shares just an opinion from his current standpoint. It was their truth at the time when the lines were written, the audio, or the video got recorded. Think about it an choose your stand- and starting point, find your truth in it, and finally, apply what serves you the best.
