There is a voice, which I would bet you’re familiar with… That voice tries to convince “me” that I am not enough. It most often goes beyond trying as it can do a very good job at making me feel inadequate: not enough money, not enough pleasure, not enough food, not enough love! “Let’s face it;” says the voice, “you’re flawed material, damaged goods: you’ll never amount to anything!”
It is that demeaning, cruel and relentless voice that I could put “in off.” Indeed, when the abuse stops, it feels soooo good! Here is to a change of perspective: what if that very voice that makes me feel small and ashamed would actually be the emissary of enlightenment? Think of it: what is enlightenment? Isn’t it to stop suffering? Isn’t it to fulfill our potential? How would I/we allow ourselves to make the decision to walk towards and then enter such “Promised Land,” unless we had the opposite experience?
The funny thing about the sense and/or accusation of “not enough” is that it has an anchor. That anchor, which weighs my emotional body down and restricts the motion and the receptivity of my vessel is money. Money is the master, which I serve, when I don’t want to hear the Truth. Only pain ensues, as “no one can serve two masters. Either I will hate the one and love the other, or I will be devoted to the one and despise the other. I cannot serve both Truth and money” (adaptation of Matthew 6:24).
Some gospel versions give the Hebrew: “I cannot serve both Elohim and Mamon.” Hebrew allows me to come to the root of the communication and to feel into what is behind my not being enough. First comes Elohim – the Divine Name that is “created SIX:” that formation is the foundation of creativity. I feel its divine impetus when I am emPowering the NOW. I am then undisturbed and untouched by the thought that I am not enough.
As for Mamon, yes, it means “money.” But it also means “yearning, craving,” a desire that is always paired with a resistance: I resist or I am afraid to lose something, which is how I limit my creativity, and don’t let Elohim be the Creator of my life. At times, I am afraid to lose the love of my family; at times, my reputation. Yet, isn’t the bottom line that I’m afraid to find myself homeless and all alone? That’s Mamon, when I make the choice of matter over energy!
Should “my” story ring a bell and should you agree that it is time to heal and take back the projections of the collective unconscious onto money, then the possibility of building a business on the Sense of Enough that meets us exactly where we are will seem heavenly. Where are we? In the paradox: it is all about Mamon (sex and money) and it has nothing to do with sex or money.
What would that life-changing business look like? Join us and partake in a significant healing and potentially the only perspective that needs to be shifted: to transition from the GReed that Gives/Receives Fear to the GRace that Gives/Receives the Sense of Enough, while knowing that there is more… We will gather to Elevate the Soul and deepen our understanding of P54 (“Enough and EPN”) of the New Essenes eBook (please make sure you’ve downloaded the latest version).
