Finding Your Self In Paradise
Money is interesting, said BrainMind. It feels like we both love it and hate it at the same time.
Money's an energy that carries a charge
Jason is a very successful motion picture producer. Over the years he had made close to forty million dollars. Jason, however, was not prosperous. In fact he was on the verge of being totally broke. Frivolous spending, risky investments, and two divorces, had all but depleted his forty million dollar fortune. Jason is an unhappy man, but a great example of the fact that prosperity is not primarily dependent upon income.
Sarah was a public school teacher for forty-one years. For most of her career she was making under twenty thousand dollars a year. Her best year was just over twenty-nine thousand. Her total wages over her life was about two percent of Jason's income. Sarah however is very prosperous. She saved ten percent of every paycheck that she received during those forty-one years. She invested first in regular savings and later in higher paying long term accounts.
Money is a very misunderstood energy form. Most money is not in bills and coins, but instead in electrons floating around in the world's financial computer network. Its relative value is always changing through such things as inflation and recession.
Economics is at best an art form. It would be difficult to call it a science when the world's leading experts always disagree. Relatively few ever master prosperity. Even for many who make a great deal of money, prosperity is no more than an elusive dream. A lot of very wealthy people spend much of their time worrying about money. Most people don't understand even the most basic principle of creating financial prosperity. It is that prosperity is not dependent upon income. Thousands of millionaires have gone bankrupt, and thousands with small incomes continue to become prosperous. People do not create prosperity by increasing their income, for usually that is at least how much money they spend. With increased income for most, comes a higher standard of living, a new car, fancy restaurants, wide screen TV, etc. Prosperity can only be created by saving and investing your money. The key is having the money that comes in make money before it goes back out.
There are three different types of attitudes that people carry about money. There is a small percentage with poverty consciousness, a small percentage with prosperity consciousness, and a very large percentage in the middle, who have a break-even consciousness.
Poverty consciousness is where there is never enough money and the bills are always overdue. What needs to go out always seems to be more than what comes in. Generally, if you give a person with a poverty consciousness even a very large sum of money, in a short time it will all be spent on things they consume, or on things that go down in value. They can receive a great deal of money and relatively soon there will be little or nothing to show for it. In fact it is quite likely that people with poverty consciousness will spend beyond their means and go deeply into debt. People like this can justify almost any expenditure by claiming to have been so long deprived of the luxuries that they previously couldn't afford. Saving and investing are for them completely unknown and unexplored territories. It is an alternative the is so foreign to their lives, it doesn’t really even occur to them.
On the other side of the spectrum are those who live their lives in prosperity consciousness, people who handle money effectively and who always have extra money. If you take away from a person with a prosperity consciousness, almost everything he or she owns, it is likely they will rebuild their resources and return quickly to the prosperity that they feel they so richly deserve.
In between poverty and prosperity is the place where most people live, a place called “break-even” consciousness. Whatever comes in, that's what goes out. However much needs to go out, that's how much comes in. A great month and someone with break-even consciousness will buy something new. A slow month, and somehow their bills get paid. Extra money seems to burn a hole in their pockets. People with break-even consciousness make sure that they do in fact break even. If they make a little extra they spend a little extra.
Here are some ideas about money.

- focused passion -
Focus brings to bear the power of the conscious mind, and Passion brings to bear the power of the subconscious mind.
When the two minds come together in harmony, something magical happens.
They create a third mind, a higher consciousness.
This is literally a second level of thinking.
