Earning money on a book he didn’t write
In today’s world, it is unsettling to discover that many are promoting spiritual commercialism as a means to achieve one’s goals in life. Oh, they don’t package and promote it under that moniker, rather, they conceal it under a myriad of claims including working with the Natural Laws to change your life to one of abundance and worldly wealth and fame. Just the other day one guru openly admitted, and proudly sorry to say, that he had earned in excess of $100,000 on a self-help book he didn’t even write. Isn’t there something disturbing about this revelation? Surely, on the visceral level, we understand that their books and their seminars and their DVD’s and their podcasts and their movies have nothing to do with spirituality and enlightenment. Rather, the focus is to funnel money into their bank accounts and not spirituality into our souls.
“So, what is Plan B?”
If we recognize the falsities that abound before us, we must also realize the need to have a plan to find inner peace as well as achieve what we want in life and what the Source rightly provides to and for us. Currently, the collective consciousness focuses upon material wealth, then physical health, and lastly our spiritual Self. If we imagine our life as a three-sided triangle, our lives have been inverted at a great cost of spiritual, emotional, and societal ills for all of humankind. That being said, we need to place our most prized possession, our spirituality as first, our overall health second, and our material wealth last.
Live in the now
Each of us can begin the road to spiritual recovery if we joyfully live in the now, gratefully accept where we are right now, and genuinely have 100% faith and belief in the Source right now. You see, we must attain our spiritual Self before we can truly gain material wealth that will sustain our lives for the future. If we focus upon bigger homes, shinier cars, and costlier goods at the cost of spirituality, the novelty soon wears off, we become disillusioned and want even bigger and shinier and costlier toys. So to speak, we’re always chasing our tail. Shift your emphasis in life off of material goods and onto spirituality; feel the warmth of the sun, hear the sweet singing of the birds, experience complete peace with your relationship to the Source. Receive inner strength and guidance and the rest will come naturally.
Is it really spirituality?
What is most detrimental to humankind; a doctrine that manipulates the masses for profit and control or spirituality built upon false pretenses in exchange for monetary profits? We must see through this false spirituality and pursue true spirituality to achieve a meaningful, healthy, and prosperous life which goes far beyond expensive or exclusive or exotic goods.
