I would like to begin by introducing my new Wednesday blog (on esoteric matters). It begins this upcoming Wednesday. The Wednesday blog will be an inquiry into the deep and virtual truths of ‘all of it’. This blog will interest folks who want to engage in a conversation that goes beyond the fight/flight mentality of the world voice.
Awareness of one’s unawareness IS SHEAR AWARENESS. Today’s blog will help awaken your awareness to the ‘natural flow’ and ‘exquisite perfection’ of life, so that you can become part of that flow, and participate fully in all aspects of life – including the ‘money domain’.
When I began admitting to myself that I was an ignoramus – one who was not only ignorant, but ignorant of being ignorant – I granted myself the authority to experience life-lessons in a new way. I no longer wailed out ‘poor me’ when things did not turn out as I’d hoped. I now sought wisdom; therefore, I asked, “How can I see things differently?” What a gift I gave myself!
MONEY OFFERS A FABULOUS LIFE LESSON: You cannot worship god (circulation) and mammon (hoarding and greediness) too. Money is to be circulated, and it should be considered that way (and only that way).
Choosing ‘greed and hoarding’ never works, no matter what I apply it to. It applies to everything from love to money. I cannot hoard love. Trying to hoard love causes jealousy, which always amounts to misery. I cannot hoard money. Trying to hoard money cause greed, which always amounts to misery.
I’ve heard the myth that says ‘rich people are cheap when it comes to others’. I once believed it. It simply is not true. If rich people were greedy (hoarding money for their own personal gain), they would be worshiping mammon and inviting misery. (YES, some rich folks are greedy – the exception proves the rule). Some poor folks are greedy, too.
I LOVE MONEY AND MONEY LOVES ME… really means that money is a means to an marvelous end (that is what it means to me). If the end for which I am aiming, is to circulate money in ways that betters life in general, then I am in harmony with the basic laws of this ever-expanding universe. Sweet victory (no misery).
What can I do today to plant a little sowing-money so that more can come my way? How can I handle money so it loves to be around me? What shall my attitude be around money even when financial times seem tough? What about when I feel as though others are taking advantage of me with money matters? These are self-empowering questions worthy of pondering.
We’ve all learned about tithing – giving 10% of our money to a worthy cause as an act of gratitude. Tithing is good. It is circulating money in a helpful way.
How about flipping tithing around? What if I were to give 10% of my money (as sowing money) with the intention of attracting much more my way? Is that greed? What if I were to plant sowing-money everywhere I went by making a claim on the Force of Multiple Returns? Is that bad? What if you always considered every dollar bill I owned as an opportunity to sow… so that I could receive a multiple return of dollar bills? What if I wanted more and more money so I could use it to donate to great causes like cancer cure and helping the poor … and what if every time I did that I laid my claim for more money? Does that work? Yes, yes, yes.
Is that not what a good business investment is about – considering money as sowing money? The business owner begins the business (no matter what the product or service may be), hoping to sow his money effectively so that he may receive a multiple return… like the farmer sowing seeds in the field. Perhaps business owners did not think of it that way specifically, but that is what they are doing.
Every time I handle a dollar bill – I consider it sowing-money. I pause to claim a multiple return on it; then I pay spend that dollar bill to pay my utility costs or to buy a cup of coffee. I always consider money as sowing money, all of my friends will tell you that. I love to pick up the tab and then lay my claim on the infinite for a multiple return. Try it, you will be wonderfully startled at how easily money will begin returning in multiples to you.
I have included this money idea into my personality – “I am one who sows money. I don’t earn money and spend money; I sow money in multiple ways and I receive a rich harvest of money in return. I give my money and I use my money for all that is good. I love money and money loves me.”
I think this is enough for one blog.
What do you think?
Does it bother you to say, “I love money”?
Do you tithe?
What if you flipped it around? What if, instead of giving 10% of your paycheck to a good cause (which is after the fact), you get in front of the Cause/effect game with Money and sow it? What if you become the cause … you decide the multiple return you will get by laying a claim as you spend your money?
All things are for use and for use only.
What use have you made of money?
My book 180 offers great tips on how to fully participate in life (handling money is a part of participation).
