Unfortunately, so many people complain all day long that they don’t have money. They wished they had more, because they can’t afford this or that. So they continue to dwindle away what they do have by imbuing their awareness with all this negativity. There is this pressing need for money in their minds, because they have not grasped the idea that receiving all you need is a natural way of life, and “all you need” is not necessarily the thing we call “money”. There is an inexhaustible supply of all goods, because all things are made if spirit substance, they are mental in nature. The things you crave are mere reflections of mind-ideas, made solid. As the saying goes, things are “thinks”.
I know it sounds harsh, but poverty is a disease, a dis-easiness of mind. Scarceness, or lack of, is a solid mind-set created since childhood. We are who we believe we are, rich or poor. It’s all in our perception. Think of the children who are born into wealth. They never doubt that there is plenty of everything. They expect all there is to be had. I’m not saying this is necessarily a good thing. I’m just pointing out how the mind-set of people affects their everyday experience.
Let’s look at prosperity from a practical standpoint. Children need to be taught fiscal responsibility from an early age on. Teach them how to save and budget; explain how to manage money and investments. Clarify the miserable results of overspending and the necessity of establishing a healthy balance. Money is not evil in itself; it is here for your comfort and enjoyment. All the goods are gifts from the All-mighty universal power - good in themselves and here for you to put to good use. Your job is to multiply these goods.
Abundance contains much more than money. Abundance includes loads of love, inspiration, goodwill, comfort and all the wonderful feelings associated with having plenty. Having plenty or enough of everything will be an individual experience. What is enough for me might not be enough for you. What you consider to be a rich man might not be what my vision of a rich man is. However, it doesn’t matter how we gage this earthly richness. It only matters what feels right for each of us. Earthly belongings are only good if they instill good feelings within us, otherwise they are clutter – things of this world. True riches are the riches of mind, which include kindness, compassion and most of all love.
So make your mind productive and full of good ideas, not cluttered with negativity, whining and complaining about how you always get the short end of the stick. You cry that everything you do is hard and stressful. What a waste if energy! Acknowledge that money isn’t the only form of riches. Ideas, inventions, and the job you love, being of service, bringing joy to others like artists with their wonderful creations, all have the capability to create wealth. When work becomes play (observe athletes) or is done with a joyful heart (I love my job!) it becomes a force for abundance. It will attract wealth. Keep your mind busy with the riches of giving, teaching, learning, and most of all creating; creating the life you want!
You are here for a purpose. You are here to find your true place in life. You are here to expand and unfold. I cannot state often enough, appreciate what you already have now. See and feel the good around you. There is enough for every living being on this planet. It only becomes sparse when man misuses nature, or engages in mal-distribution, hoarding for his own, or the greed we see everywhere and the poverty that certain areas suffer. All suffering is man-made. We are the culprits of misery and therefore we have the power to change this dilemma.
Let me end these thoughts with the promise of a more abundant life, by changing our self-imposed prison of these limiting thought concepts. It takes each and every one of us to understand how the laws of mind work. And it takes each and every one of us to make the change. Together we can create a more abundant world for all. What a wonderful way to live!
