“The money consciousness is an attitude of mind”. It is a receptive attitude.
For the last couple of years, I have been working studiously on my money consciousness. There have been so many ideas that I had carried about money and none of these were mine. I have always loved beautiful things, being around beauty, and appreciating how human beings could create beautiful environments, art, music etc.
However, maybe like many people, I was born in a religious family who detested, beauty and beautiful things. Any kind of lavishness or wealth was believed to be evil. Music, art, and any other creative endeavor was the creation of the devil because they seduced the human mind. That is was my mother would teach me.
There was conflict within me. How can we as human beings exist if we are not meant to use the powers of our mind? Why have we been given a brain if we cannot use it to ask questions and understand? I know that it is only when we are truly free that we can be truly happy. Surely God did not give us our unique talents and passions so that we spend our whole lives hiding them from others and from ourselves?
In my opinion, a person’s money consciousness is a reflection of where they are in being the greatest version of themselves. Many people say “money is evil”. I also hear people correct that saying with ‘THE LOVE of money is evil’. There is a stark difference between the two.
Growing up with my parents, I saw much money flow to the home and my parents loved it, hid it, and lived as though they were poor. To this day, my father says, he doesn’t have any money, and yet he has no mortgage, he still works for himself, has several properties, and has no debt. All this abundance and it’s locked in a bank so that nobody in his family can touch it. He refuses to replace the broken furniture and shuts off the heating when he goes to work and my mother has a small heater she uses if she gets cold.
He had a dream to travel the world, he shared his dream car with me and said he always wanted a watch but refused to buy any of these or spend his money to travel and fulfill his dreams. If this is not an example of ‘LOVING MONEY’ for the sake of it, I don’t know what is. He is now in his early 70s and both my parent’s routine has been the same for the past 40+ years.
The only real positive from this is that I drive to use money, use it to make a difference, use it so that I can fulfill my dreams, and experience all that I wish in the opportunity I have to experience life to the fullest.
