This is lesson 1.
Up until New Years day, I want to give you an explanation of lessons I’ve learned in 2012.
Leading upto New Years Day where I’ll reveal my new attitude, my new mindset. My 2013 focus.
So – today, the first lesson, this is something so important, it changed my whole personal outlook on “money”.
A lot of people have the belief system that wealth and money are not spiritual, are not products of “God” or the Universe. By the way, as most of you know, I’m spiritual, so when I say God, it’s not for any specific religion, it’s what some call “The Universe” or the “Higher Power”.
They say things like “Happiness lies with God, not with Money” or “Chase God, not money” or “Money isn’t everything” etc.
But what I’ve learned, and the fundamental teaching that has stuck out for me as my spiritual study deepened in 2012 is something very fundamental.
If God created everything, then “money” is also included in the everything. It is part of the universe, it’s an energy. It’s not separate from the Church or Temple you pray at, not separate from the paper pages of the Bible or holy text you read and follow.
The only thing that differs is your intention for it.
So how does this change things? Well, I was always taught to create money, create wealth so I could do “good” things in the world. Make God proud.
Well, what if I told you, that if your intention is pure, your actual pursuit of the money is one of the most spiritual acts you can do? What if I said chasing money, if intended correctly, wires you into the universe and allows Gods work to flow better than practicing a particular religion. Thats a very bold statement. It’s one of the most powerful understandings I’ve had this year.
Let me explain.
We make money, slave over money and chase money so that eventually we can “give back”. But what if giving back was built right into the process of making money. That by you just making money you gave back automatically – let me put this into a question:
If you knew that by you making money, the world was changing, lives were being saved & the world was changing, when would you stop your pursuit and chase of money?
It may be hard to admit, but the answer is never.
You see, in the grand scheme of things, giving and receiving are two sides of the same process. One hand gives, one had receives. The wealthiest people on the planet have just put systems in place where the process of making money involves giving. This makes the never ending “chase for money” a very very very spiritual chase.
On the flip side, it also assumes that those who are not doing their best, their utmost BEST to create financial abundance for themselves are selfish. A lot of people want to help those less well off, but you can’t help the poor by being one of them. You must get your financies and investments right first, and then you can be in a position to help those less well off.
So, you must combine your efforts for making money and make the giving process automatic. This I believe is a type of capitalism called Conscious Capitalism. This is why tithing was set up. It’s not so you can give what you have. Tithing was set up to motivate you and inspire you to create more so you CAN give more.
That is the power of combining spirituality and money. Your chase for money is now never ending, it has to happen. This is why I’m so proud of what we’re doing with Gold For Life, th emore successful people we create the more we can give back, because we know that those who join our program are not people with bad intentions, they are good people, thats all I manifest around me. So when I help them make money, they spread more and more good into the world and the world changes with time.
But it all starts with understanding that the chase for riches are not just about cars houses boats and watches, the very chase for riches is one of the most spiritual processes on the planet, as you chase money, God gets a chance to manifest through you creatively.
I really want you to understand this, the money is not evil. Your want of spiritual “highness” and connection to God is strengthened when you have riches, when you are in a position to help. What screws the whole thing up are your intentions once you get the money.
Don’t ever let anybody tell you that money isn’t spiritual. Be proud of your pursuit of wealth, whether you do it through our program, or someone else’s strategy, be proud that by never stopping the chase for money, YOU are changing the world, changing peoples lives around you and allowing the universe to work through you, all by just chasing, money. Money is good. Money is spiritual. Riches are holy in the eyes of God. Just watch your intentions.
Thats lesson 1 of 2012. So important. See you tomorrow.
SUMMARY: MONEY = SPIRITUALITY.
