What if “love of money” isn’t the cause? What if “lack of money” is the cause?
I was taught that love of money is the root of all evil. Yes, I know this is a misquote, but, it is the message most of us were taught.
Take a look at the problems in your life, in your family, in your community. How many of them would be solved if there were certain amounts of money at hand that one could freely use?
As you consider this possibility, sit with what you see, feel and are thinking for a moment or two.
How would things be if the money was at hand, right here and now, to freely use to ease situations and circumstances?
Take a moment or two to consider how things might change. Recognize the feelings and thoughts that come with this possibility. Which of these is habitual, what you think and feel automatically when you consider money as a problem solver?
I keep saying “freely use” because money that comes with:
- or charges like interest
- or conditions like rules as to how and when it is to be used
creates a toxic situation or worsens an already toxic situation. Money that comes with the above conditions is called toxic money.
Before we go to the angels and Mother/Father God about money, let us get clear about our willingness to admit that love of money—living in the overflow of all the good that comes come the Source (Mother/Father God)—might be exactly what is needed in our world at the moment.
For this next week, every time lack of money shows up in your life as a habitual thought or action, or as something you automatically think and feel, or as the only choice at the moment, immediately switch to thinking:
- “I live in the overflow of all good. Lack, I don’t know how you got into my world, but you’re aren’t welcome here. Leave.”
- “I love money. The more I receive, the more I can give. Yeah! Yeah! Fabulous!”
- Allow yourself to feel joy, peace and ease.
- And, allow yourself to recognize your hesitation and your negativity about doing this.
And so it is.
In the spirit of my Christmas challenge: You are perfect just the way you are, and I love you.
