Lack is the Cause?

March 2, 2016
Hi Everyone,

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.

Consider
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?

Toxic money
I keep saying “freely use” because money that comes with:

  • Struggle
  • 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.

Assignment
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.

Peace

Sept. 3, 2013

Hello,

At the moment, most of us are thinking about peace and how much we desire it.  President Richard Nixon said that “peace is greater than the absence of war”; Jesus, the Master Teacher, said that “peace passes all understanding”.  In other words, we humans haven’t the faintest idea what peace is which is why peace conferences continually fail.

However, these gatherings have tremendous value: each brings us a tad closer to knowing peace.

I wonder if we would understand peace more if we stopped wanting life to be easy.  Life isn’t easy.  Many of us have learned to shun those who try to convince us that doing such and such will bring us ease.  Most of us realize that to win anything requires a struggle and, sometimes, we have to do more than struggle: we have to fight.

I wonder if we would know peace if we would admit that fighting is part of our experience instead of denying that it is.  I wonder what would happen if we acknowledged that to reach a goal, struggle was going to happen, and perhaps a fight or two, also.  I wonder if admitting and accepting struggle and fighting as part of what we do as humans would clear enough space for peace to enter and, perhaps, stay long enough for us to recognize, define and accept it.

As of today, I stop condemning my Self when I struggle; I stop thinking I’ve done something wrong when I have to fight for what I want; I remember the butterfly that struggles to leave it’s cocoon and then fights to dry its wings.  I recall that once it gains freedom, it flies with grace and ease.

I speak my word aloud that I struggle and fight with honor for that which is right and true.
