Money is the root of all evil… or is it?

Money is the root of all evil… or is it?

I have found from my own experience that when people say money doesn’t matter and they don’t care about it, what they are really saying is that they have yet to understand how to create it for themselves and so therefore they are just disowning the reality that it can actually matter. There is so much judgment in our world about people who have money, yet if you desire to have an effect on the world at all—whether by saving animals, working to end pollution in our oceans, contributing to our planet in any way, or just being there for a neighbor—it takes money to do that.

Money is not the only thing that is important and significant, yet it matters a great deal. If we really believed it is our Creator’s pleasure to give us the kingdom in the twenty-first century, we would celebrate having a way of communicating energy and abundance. We would celebrate being self-supportive and having the ability to offer solutions to causes in our lives.

The issue is never money itself, but the limited belief that people have about money. I ask the universe to provide me with more money all the time, not because I need another thing but because it will give me the ability to use it to help empower someone, to feed a child, or to save an animal. I always tell people, “If you don’t want more money, give it to me—I have lots of ways to use it.” The truth sets us free when we are coming from the vibration of what is really true. As the author M. Scott Peck once said, “The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.”

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

I have been doing christening ceremonies for the past twenty-three years, and each time I invite everyone from the immediate “village,” who are there to support the child to come into a circle. I always ask, “What do you wish and pray for with this child?” The answers come quickly: to live his dreams, to…

Chipping Away

Chipping Away

As we do our work…. Imagine your life as a giant block of stone. The stone has potential and purpose, but in its current form, it doesn’t speak to your soul. So you get out a chisel and start chipping. You chip away bad habits. You chip away unnecessary material goods. You chip away ideals…
