Show Notes107: Can You Be Rich And Spiritual?
If you're a spiritual person, does that mean that you can't be rich or can success bring spiritual fulfillment?
The greatest gift is to be able to show people into understanding that they can be kind, loving, and spiritually rich. If you believe this, your life will change. Richness is a result. It’s a result of being a good person.
In this episode, I talked about getting rich while living your purpose. Stay tuned to free your mind and go beyond your limitations so you can be rich and spiritual.
Where does the rich or spiritual idea come from?
02:28- 02:44 (16) You know gorgeous, there are a lot of really beautiful spiritual traditions out there. Most of them have awesome things to say about treating your own fellow human beings with love, respect, and dealing with life's inevitable ups and downs.
02:45- 03:06 When it comes to money, though, things often start to get confusing for people. You probably know the old bible chestnut about the love of “Money being the root of all evil” and then there’s one about it being “Easier for a camel to go through the eye of the needle than for a rich man to enter heaven.”
03: 07- 03:33 It’s not Christianity either. The Prophet Muhammad once claimed that poverty was his pride. Buddha said that living a pure, unselfish life meant not owning anything at all. And the ancient Greek philosopher insisted that contentment came from wanting very little, rather than from being wealthy.
It’s not what you’ve got, it’s what you do with it
03:49- 04:32 Look, my dear, I’m not a religious studies scholar. Even though I've gone through the school of theology as a Christian but a religious study person. But I suspect that if you looked at each of those quotes in context and in their original language, the meaning might change a bit. I mean, yes, sure, if you walk all over people to build a fortune without caring who you hurt, and you step on people's back and step on people's shoes to get to climb up to the corporate ladder that’s pretty unspiritual.
04:51- 04:59 Can we please take a step back and acknowledge just one scenario: forgetting and spending money.
05:36- 05:45 The truth is that money doesn’t change the person you are in your heart. Instead, it allows you to be more of whoever you already are.
It’s time to ditch the “either/or”
05:59- 06:21 You can be any kind of rich person you want to be. Either a rich man, a rich woman, a soul rich woman, or soul rich men. First, though, you need to declutter all the damaging assumptions you’ve picked up about the way wealthy people have to be.
3 Practical exercises
06:34- 07:44 Here’s a quick, practical exercise that will help you to do that. Step 1: Grab a pen and paper, and brainstorm a list of all the negative qualities that can go along with being rich in your mind. For example, being rich means “greedy,” “selfish,” “manipulative,” "you just love money," "you dissociate yourself with money," Step 2: Think of examples of real-life rich people who have those negative qualities and let yourself feel whatever it is you feel towards them. Then use the forgiveness mantra to let go of the charge around those feelings. "I forgive you," "I love you," "I thank you" Step 3: Finally, for every negative example of a rich person you identified, look for at least one person who’s doing awesome things to make the world a better place.
07:45- 07:50 So what kind of rich person do you want to be? Soul Rich Woman.
