Week 23 ~ Money is . . .

… of course the first thought for me is, ” the Root of All Evil!”  When I read the first sentence of The Master Key – Part Twenty-Three about money “… weaves itself into the entire fabric of our very existence…” I thought, “Oh no, here we go again with a lecture about money.”  yeah, yeah, yeah… “It’s everywhere and plentiful and easy to get.”  yeah, yeah, yeah… NOT !

These are thoughts I grew up with.  I could never really reconcile myself with having or making a lot of money when so many others don’t have it.  I didn’t think I was worthy and I looked askance at those who had money.  I told myself, “Money isn’t the important thing.”

Well, ready Part Twenty-Three was somehow comforting as well as exciting and full of possibilities!

  • … that the law of success is service; that we get what we give
  • … nothing of more practical value than our thought
  • Perfection of Spiritual Power is the labor of life
  • Desire is the attractive force; fear is the great obstacle (boy, don’t I know that!)
  • Fear is poverty consciousness… (BAM!  That hit me!)
  • We make money by making friends … by being of service to them.
  • … pleasure in the pursuit rather than the possession.  (Ah, making sense!)
  • … make money for other people… Great financiers are simply channels for the distribution of wealth
  • The financier get much because he gives much; he thinks…
  • Spirit … the reality underlying Thought.
  • Spirituality … the only really and absolutely “practical” thing that there is!
  • We are … spirit with a body
  • Money is therefore of no value except to bring about the conditions which we desire, and these conditions are necessarily harmonious.
  • … if the Infinite objected in the least to such a procedure the thing could never happen.  The Infinite is quite able to take care of itself. (HA!)

… money is service … (YES!)
