This morning I woke up after a great night's sleep with a feeling of abundant energy and optimism in my heart.
Before I do my morning meditation and prayer to direct this wonderful enthusiasm towards my goals, I wanted to write and share the joy I feel this morning.
The insights I've had lately have shown me that in many ways I have achieved the emotional and spiritual well-being that I worked so hard for in the past decade. Now that I have achieved this great feeling of happiness and joy, it is time to balance out this spiritual abundance with material abundance as well. The best part of all is that it doesn't need to "be work" anymore. All struggle for success is over and by having a relaxed approach I am bringing myself even greater peace and comfort which is in turn shared with others.
We who are spiritually-minded often think that we do ourselves a favour by not pursuing financial gains. We feel spiritually strong and sustained in that space so that we are able to endure the hardships that come with financial difficulties. We tell ourselves, "It's okay. I don't need a car." Or "I am happy despite not having the apartment I want in the neighbourhood of my choice." Or whatever it is that we don't have that we convince ourselves that we can live without.
The truth is -- we can live without everything in this material world! Right? We know that because our soul comes from the world of spirit and will live in the world of spirit after our physical death. So we know that we don't "need" many things in order to "LIVE".....however..........
After we have our basic physical needs met -- a roof over our heads, clothes on our backs, food in our bellies -- then our soul begins to desire more sustenance. We desire to feel belonging and love; we desire to exert ourselves and be of benefit to others; we desire to feel fulfilled and at peace with ourselves and those around us.
And that, my dear friends, is where there is a need for spiritual need for money. Money is not the root of all evil! Corruption is, lying is, stealing is etc. When we seek out money with a pure heart, when we strive to use our capacities to serve those around us in a profession or trade that we truly enjoy then we earn money, and when we earn this money we can use it towards fulfilling our dreams. When we fulfill our own dreams, we can also begin to consider how can we use our money to help fulfill the dreams of those around us to.
So this is why I am not afraid to say that my spiritual goal is to generate more money, consistently, for the rest of my life.
For my entire life I have lived in a condition of loss and deficet. And I am not putting up with it anymore!
The best part of it for me is that I am writing about it as I go and that gives me even joy upon joy.
I see myself making more money this year than I have made in the past 5 years combined. I see myself earning this money doing what I love to do. I see myself using this money for the well-being of myself, my family, and my community.
I see myself finally balanced so that I have spiritual and financial abundance.
What greater joy than this could be imagined?
