True Confessions

I’m coming out of the closet…and perhaps going out on a limb.  I’m going to tell you something I’ve never really shared out loud, in public, so explicitly.

For those who know me, what I’m about to say will come as no surprise.  And if you’ve read my latest blogs, it’ll probably seem obvious. But I feel compelled to confess my deepest conviction…

I firmly believe that financial success is a spiritual journey; that financial abundance is a divine right and a divine duty; and that financial accountability is a sacred responsibility.

I share this for a reason. I believe looking at money from this perspective makes the often overwhelming task of making more and managing it wisely seem easier and definitely more meaningful. It sure did for me.

I’ve come to believe, from my own experience, that money (respecting and appreciating it) is a vital tool for doing what we were put on this earth to do.

I’ve always believed that we are here to do God’s work. But we cannot possibly follow our God-given destiny, if we’re drowning in debt or struggling to make ends meet.

However, disciplined spending, ample earnings, habitual savings, and prudent investing are sacred tools for not only living our best life but improving the lives of others.

Money  is power. Everyone knows that. But I take it one step further.  Money, I believe, is God made visible.

Do you think I’m way off here????

    No I don’t think you’re way off, I totally agree with you. You make so much sense!

    The first time I heard that idea that money = God was in a Deepak Chopra book. It had never occurred to me before then that money could be spiritual currency, but it does make sense! And it explains why money, like love, is not meant to be hoarded, but to be shared… and when shared, it comes back to us many times over. I believe money is a prop that exists to be used in our personal and spiritual development. I can’t wait to hear more about Sacred Success!

  • Sorry, but I do not believe in God. In other ways I think you’re right-on, Barbara. The point is that God is not a necessary part of the formula. You can be an atheist or a Buddhist (nontheistic) or whatever. The spiritual outlook is what matters.

    I with you on this one.

    The French have a saying, “Noblesse oblige” which means with the privilege comes the responsibility.

    Yes, our successes and achievements are to be savoured. After all we did the hard yards.

    However, the wealth we generate is not to be squandered but used to improve the lives of people less fortunate than ourselves.

  • I really love all these comments. You make me think…and I deeply appreciate your enthusiasm for this new work of mine!! Thanks to everyone! XO Barbara
