Acquiring and Sustaining Wealth

In order to acquire wealth–or for that matter anything in the physical universe–you must intend it, make a decision to go for it. The decision is unchangeable with fixity of purpose not countermanded by anything. The universe handles the details, organizes and orchestrates opportunities. You have simply to be alert to these opportunities.

Helping others make money and helping other people to fulfill their desires is a sure way to ensure you’ll make money for yourself as well as more easily fulfill your own dreams. The best way to motivate other people to help you fulfill your goals is to help them fulfill their goals.

Money is like blood; it must flow. Hoarding and holding on to it causes sludging. In order to grow, it must flow. Otherwise it gets blocked and, like clotted blood, it can only cause damage. Money is life energy that we exchange and use as a result of the service we provide to the universe. And in order to keep it coming to us, we must keep it circulating.

Tithing means giving away a certain portion of your income without conditions or strings attached. When you give, a vacuum is created that attracts even more of what you have given away.

Love yourself. Love your customers. Love your family. Love everybody. Love the world. There is no power stronger than love. Also, adopt luxury as a lifestyle. Luxury is our natural state. Adopting luxury as a lifestyle sets the preamble, the preconditions for the flow of wealth.

When we seek money, or a good relationship, or a great job, what we are really seeking is happiness. The mistake we make is not going for happiness first. If we did, everything else would follow.

We must never pretend appreciation, but if we feel it, then we must express it. The expression of gratitude is a powerful force that generates even more of what we have already received.

I so enjoyed that and the advice for just going after Happiness, as that intention will include all that we need.

Unfortunately the present rulers of our world value greed, competition, avarice, elitism, and other values that separate us along, racial, class, gender, age, and multiple other lines.

Looking at the class half full instead of half empty is very important. Being grateful for Gods kingdom instead assuming the demonic attitude of jealousy, and envy is very important.

I believe that seeking after health and emotional well being is the first step in gaining true wealth. How are you going to enjoy material wealth if your health is compromised?

We must keep our eyes on the Gods coming kingdom and get out of the present and fading kingdom of the devil.
