We regularly send emails to our customers to keep them informed of what is happening at Divinafe. Occasionally one of them decides they no longer want to receive them and so they unsubscribe from our list. We are sad to see them go and we always appreciate it when they leave us a comment stating the reason for their departure.
Recently, one of our unsubscribing customers wrote us a comment letting us know the reason he no longer wanted to receive our emails. He stated that we were talking too much about money and not enough about spirituality. That got us thinking that we needed to explain a little more about how money and spirituality go hand in hand.
MONEY AND FREEDOM
We live in a material world, and as such, money is the tool that frees us from the struggles of meeting the basic necessities of life. It takes money to feed yourself and your family. If you don’t have to worry about hunger then you are free to pursue your higher interests.
Money provides us with the freedom of obtaining an education which in turn allows us to help others with our knowledge. With money you are able to travel and see the world. By learning about other cultures you open your mind to accepting and respecting people from different ethnical backgrounds and persuasions. Acceptance and respect are the foundations for peace amongst people of all nations.
Money ultimately provides you with the freedom to pursue your life goals and desires. Mother Theresa is a prime example of that. She was amazingly skilled in raising the monies necessary to conduct her charitable work in India. She travelled the world and raised millions of dollars so that she could continue her mission of charity and love. Money never detracted from her spirituality, on the contrary. It gave her the freedom to give back to those that so badly needed it. I think there is something very spiritual in that!
MONEY (IS NOT) THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL
You may have heard the contrary “money is the root of all evil”. And if you come from a God fearing Christian family, as I do, you may have even started to believe it. However, I have to say that through my life I have met wonderful people full of goodness and love that have tons of money and are not at all evil. I have learned that money is not the problem. The problem is the way money is used.
When money is used for power it brings a whole plethora of problems with it. But the problem is not the money itself, the problem is the imbalance that is created by the individual’s perception of the use of money. For hoarding money for the sake of power, using money to hurt others and keeping money away from those who need it comes from fear. Fear is the antithesis of love and therefore a very dangerous and destructive emotion.
MONEY AND DIVINE ENERGY
Everything in God’s creation is made of energy. Our thoughts are pure energy. It is this energy that allows us to imagine, create and manifest. These manifestations take on many shapes and forms in the material world. Money is one of them.
Just like with other types of manifestation the energy of money needs to flow freely. Those who attempt to hoard it or keep it from others interfere with its flow and therefore create imbalance and disruption. If you want to be abundant share your abundance with others. Abundance is much more than just money. Abundance is based on the believe that there is enough for everyone. An abundant person knows that scarcity is based on fear and fear is the opposite of love.
God is abundance. Look around you and you will see its manifestation in nature, love, the arts and the greatness of the human spirit. There are everyday heroes that know life is abundant and so they live to share their own. Those who give always have. Focus on living an abundant life and don’t hold back on sharing your talents, your love and yes, your money with others. For, it is through sharing that we allow the energy of money to attain its divine flow.
