Money is not as many would have us believe the curse of man
but is better understood as the currency of the Divine. Money
and commerce were invented by the Divine Spirit to allow men
to do good. Without money none of the things that men do that
are good can be achieved. Doing good is another way of
making love greater and therefore in consequence money has
the ability to make love greater as well as doing great good.
Unfortunately man has abused his understanding of money.
Money is now itself treated as a god by those of even high
intellect, because they have lost touch with their maker. They
have seen money as a means to make their own lives greater
and in so doing are implementing the Law of Destruction upon
their own lives and the life of society as a whole.
Money should therefore be seen as a gift from the Divine Spirit
with which you should do good. By doing good I do not mean
that you have to give your money away in order to do good.
Charity has its place, but is not encouraged except in extreme
cases where need is paramount. The old saying charity begins
at home holds true today as it did thousands of years ago. It is
based upon the requirement to use money in a way that benefits
those with whom you are in contact in daily life.
Doing good is ensuring that you use any money you may be
fortunate enough to acquire in a way that ensures that you, your
family and friends make the most of your life. Such
opportunities should not abuse others by taking advantage of
your money to achieve a greater position in society than you
are due. Money should therefore be understood as having a
moral as well as legal use, since the use of the money that you
use accumulates upon your karmic record. It is not possible to
argue at the Divine level that you were not responsible for
killing millions of people because you bought shares in tobacco
companies just to make money. It is not possible to argue that
you carry no guilt with you because you made or sold arms, but
did not do the actual killing. The enlightened soul knows that if
you make your money from a product that is known to kill,
then those deaths fall upon your karma. Do you really want to
die of lung cancer because you invested in a cigarette company
to make money?
That example may be a little extreme, but it is not possible to
one step remove yourself from the actions of others. In the
same way the chain of command does not remove the
responsibility of those who fight wars to turn a blind eye to the
conventions of war, because they did not do the actual killing.
Money is often the direct result of cause and effect. You
receive this amount of money because you did that. It is easy to
see that money therefore represents part of the daily value
equation of life. Money has become a god in its own right
because money accumulates in this life rather than the next.
Religions use money as a tool to impose guilt upon those who earn money, as a means to earn money for themselves to support their own infrastructures. Charities do the same by showing pictures of less fortunate people, as a means to elicit money to their good causes.
Money was not created for this use, as it is there in order that
you may exchange goods and services at a relative value
without profit. Money was created out of the principals of a
barter economy. A man with ten sheep may wish to replace one
of his sheep with a pig in return for four sheep. At the end of
the day he has made his life better and that of the man who sold
him the pig. The transaction did not originate in the concept of
wealth. Profit however has become the god of money and if
you earn money you should understand that money should be
spent wisely in order that you gain in spiritual growth. Money
should not be used simply for material growth and profit at the
expense of others.
The bottom line is that money was invented to do good. You
should therefore make sure that your money is spent well.
Occasional extravagance is worth while, since it lets the soul
experience the ebb and flow of the tide of life. It supports the
local economy where you spend that money. Money used
exclusively for personal pleasure will on the other hand
accumulate as a negative effect upon your life. If you feel guilt
when you give money to charity it is better not to give, but to
use the money in a way that makes you feel good when it is
used in that way. By way of example, giving to a charity
because you feel guilty may not be appropriate, but paying
money to enable someone unemployed to do a job for you is
what money was made to do. As a result of employing
someone who might otherwise be unemployed you are using
your money to maximum benefit to all concerned.
Money therefore induces the moral dilemma of what to do in
the event that you are fortunate enough to have more money
than you may need. If this is the case it is important that you
invest your money in businesses and projects that do not abuse
the planet or other people. Those businesses which destroy the
environment for profit will not prosper. Those that are built
around renewable energy and sustainability are those which do
good at a global level.
Giving is an important part of life because it fulfils the most
basic rule of Karma - when you give you also get. Giving in
any form returns as getting. If you give love you will surely get
love. On the other hand if you give out negative energy in the
form of hate this too will be returned to you under the rules of
karma. Giving away money to worthy causes will have a
positive effect provided it is not as a means to seek to avoid
As a caring human being with higher consciousness it becomes
important to give at all levels of life. Giving your time and
effort to your family and friends is natural to most people.
However it is also good to give to those who are less fortunate
than yourself. Many people have forgotten this most basic rule
In order that you may do this money is the most convenient
form of giving, because it provides an easy to evaluate value
equation outside of a barter economy. None the less giving for
the sake of easing your conscience is in itself unworthy of the
action. To give because it makes you feel better has no validity
in the balance of value equations of life. You may feel better
but your money will not make you a better human being.
In order to give to charity or any worthy cause you should use
your money for the reason it was given to humanity - in order
to provide an exchange of values. This means that if you wish
to support a good cause you should be prepared to buy
something that supports that cause. This may take the form of
goods or services. The element of value is not important, since
the conscious decision to receive as well as give empowers
those whom you seek to support.
By way of example it is necessary to fund the expansion of the
philosophy detailed in this book. This is a project that is not
funded by a conventional business and should never become
one, because it is the furtherance of natural knowledge. None
the less money is needed to carry the words in this book around
the world. These books generate revenue to enable the word to
spread and in so doing good is done. Those who buy the books
may buy them to give to friends and in so doing further good is
The principals however are simple. The use of money should
always carry an awareness of the moral responsibility it carries
with it. It should be remembered that those who have money
have received their money through their own as well as Divine
will. This carries an obligation to use it well, because that was
why it was given to you. This chapter is included to allow you
to understand that money is part of the plan of life by the
Divine and not a means to make you feel guilty. It should be
used wisely if you are fortunate enough to have more than you
need for the daily task of life. It should be used wisely
It would be easy throughout this chapter to transpose the word
money for commerce. The application of the word commerce is
the same and carries the same warning to those who abuse their
position. The payback for the abuse of money and commerce is
accumulated on the shoulders of those who use money in a
negative manner. There is no escape from the forthcoming
earth-shift and no amount of money can buy your way to
Now is a time for self evaluation and a time to ensure that your
life is in balance with your needs. When the earth-shift has
taken place money will have no value for a long period of time.
The only value at that time will be the value of life and the
ability to recover and find food. All the things that you have
taken for granted for so long will no longer be important,
whilst those things such as the support of your family, friends
and neighbours will rise to the top of your priorities. At this
time you will look back at the world that has gone and be
grateful that it has departed, because you will know the truth in
your heart that the Divine Spirit guides you.
When that time comes you will need to consider the future. The
new economy will therefore employ the best principals of the
use of money and for a certain time be founded upon the solid
underlying principals of barter.
