Meta-Musing
Principle and Practical Prosperity

 

Blessings to you!

 

Wakey, wakey, Friends! If you are buying into the fear and anxiety, rumors and crepe-hanging of the current predictions of financial disaster, you are only feeding that which you fear.

   

In the Bible, Job says, "That which I have most greatly feared has come upon me." Well...really...what do we expect knowing that "where the mind goes, energy flows, and manifestation follows?" We must put our focus more on anticipation of what CAN be than anxiety of what MAY happen.

   

To want one thing, and focus on another is not only impractical, it is insane! Unfortunately it is not at all uncommon. The huge downturns we have seen in on Wall Street are a prime example of fear running rampant. We are not paying too much for gas because of anything that has actually happened...but because of the oil speculators FEARS of what "might" happen.   

 

Great concerns are being expressed about our national "Credit Rating" slipping. Why should we expect our nation's credit rating NOT to reflect our own?  The AVERAGE AMERICAN credit score ranges from 660-685.  

  • A Excellent Perfect Credit Score Range is 750 + 
  • A Bad Credit Score Range is Below 600. 
At this point, the credit rating of the USA exceeds that of the average American. So...where does the change need to occur? And how?

 

By right of consciousness, because we are One in Spirit, each one of us is either a part of the problem or a part of the solution. What is the ONE THING we can do to be part of the solution? Read on!

 

 

Haggai 1:9

You have looked for much, and, lo, it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why? says the LORD of hosts. Because of my house that lies in ruins, while you busy yourselves each with his own house.

 

Unity Wisdom:

"Realize first of all that prosperity is not wholly a matter of capital or environment but a condition brought about by certain ideas that have been allowed to rule in the consciousness. When these ideas are changed the conditions are changed in spite of environment and all appearances, which must also change to conform to the new ideas"    Charles Fillmore, "Prosperity" 

 

 

The ONE THING we MUST do to change the current financial crisis is to change our mind. We need a major paradigm shift from thoughts and feelings of lack and limitation, to potential and possibility. This is CRITICAL.

 

Below is a wonderful Internet Classic that I think should be printed out and put on every bathroom mirror in the United States: (abridged)  

 

"If we could shrink the earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would break down on a per person scale accordingly... There would be: 

  • 6 people would possess 59% of the entire world's wealth and all 6 would be from the United States.
  • 80 would live in substandard housing
  • 70 would be unable to read
  • 50 would suffer from malnutrition
  • 1 would be near death; 1 would be near birth 1 (yes, only 1) would have a college education
  • 1 would own a computer

 When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective, the need for acceptance, understanding and education becomes glaringly apparent. The following is also something to ponder:

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness...you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.  

 

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation ... you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

 

If you can attend an idealogical meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death...you are more blessed than three billion people in the world.

 

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep...you are richer than 75% of this world.  

 

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace ... you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

 

If you can read this article of perspective, you are more fortunate than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all. Of course, as I see the world today, perhaps that's not such a bad thing." (author unknown) 

 

Normally, while I am touched when folks forward the weekly message, I do not mention or request it. This time I encourage you to share it with friends and family. We MUST STOP the downward spiral of negative thought plaguing the people of our country.  

 

Let's claim our power! Let's claim our pride!  

 

Live long and PROSPER! RevAli
