There is indeed a correlation between money and happiness. Yet, to feel it, you would have to be a philanthropist – someone who became big enough to move out of scarcity (Scare City?) and loves humanity as the Self SO much that s/he generously gives of his or her resources to help a worthy cause. And it makes us wonder… People who don’t have money often say that they want to be rich, just so that they could give their money away. Yet, if it were the truth, why would there be a discrepancy between what they say they want and what they actually have and do? Why the choice of remaining poor? Moreover, what does the dreaded word – “poverty” – really mean? In the words of Woody Allen: “money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.”
Money is a complete and, potentially, THE most sophisticated “God” paradox: on the one hand, having it can’t buy you love, on the other, resenting it – or the people who have it – is a far cry from having an open heart. To embrace this paradox, we turn to the Essenes, a Jewish sect who gained fame in modern times as a result of the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, also known as the “Essene Library.” The Essenes, Aramaic for “healers,” were also called the Ebionites for “the poor.” Here is what their “poverty” was all about: they didn’t have any baggage (mental or otherwise), a letting go which allowed them to be Chassidim Harishonim, “the kind ones, the lovers of God.”
To begin putting it together, consider the following: our planet has an increasing need for healers, specifically for a group of people, which we could consider as a sort of “financial naturopath” who would first heal themselves from all the mental, emotional and physical damages caused by the indoctrination of a greed-based society, and then share their energetic understanding with others. Most of us are feeling so lonely and depleted that we desperately we need more (be it sugar, a phone call, a diploma, etc) to come in, to “try” and fill the gaping hole in our soul! ” Where lack is rampant, it makes it difficult to ♪♫ “Imagine no possessions / No need for greed or hunger / A brotherhood of man…”
And yet.. there are those among us who seem to have a very deep, almost primal calling to make a real difference on the planet at this time. Instead of being only profit-driven, they have begun to hear the call to be prophet-driven, and to heal from within that which wounds our integrity and our sense of being Enough, having Enough and doing Enough. They experience how, the more they raise their energy, the more their sense of worth increases, and the less needy they are! In turn, it is by “being the change” that their modeling changes the world.
Can you relate? Do you have an itch like this? Do you hear an “inner prophet” urging you towards transformation, inviting you to play your part in transitioning from GReed into GRace? ♪♫ “I wonder if you can” shift from the Big “GR” of Giving/Receiving FEAR to the Big “GR” of Giving/Receiving LOVE? “Consider the lilies, how they grow, they toil not, neither do they spin.”
If so, you are “fortunate,” as our New Essenes upcoming meeting will explore the six degrees of separation inherent in Profit-ability, and the contrasting six steps to your Prophet-ability – to anchor the wisdom of your uniqueness. We would love to have you join us for our upcoming meeting. We will begin at noon EST / 11 AM CST / 9 AM PST this Sunday and explore “The way of the New Essenes” current page 21 of the New Essenes eBook (please make sure you have download the latest version). If you can join us live this time, great! If not, you may always listen to thearchive or join us for our other New Essene shows via Elevate the Soul radio.
Included below is our meeting information, logistics and access to additional complimentary methods to learn more about XPR. Until then, peace be with you.
