Money, possessions, and true wealth

Money, possessions, and true wealth

« Money and possessions have always been a cause of division and confrontation for human beings. Just look at what happens in families, at the many dramas resulting from problems of inheritance.

Greed and lust are the cause of permanent conflict not only in families, but in society and in countries. Yes indeed, the desire always to have more lies at the heart of any war. Whatever the motives people attribute to a war (and these are often very noble) the true motive is always to go and take something from the neighbour, be it money or land. If only people could be less self-interested, more generous, so many conflicts would be avoided.

There is nothing wrong with wanting possessions, but this should not be at the detriment of others. And those who are rich should not keep everything for themselves; they should learn to redistribute this wealth.

No being is richer than the Lord and his best representative on earth is the sun. The sun is so rich he overflows and he must distribute his riches so as to avoid exploding. Why not do like the sun? If not with material wealth, which you may well not have, then with spiritual riches.»

« Having sought to explore matter for thousands of years, human beings have reached the point of forgetting themselves and getting lost in it. Matter is so diverse and so rich that there will always be things to see, hear, touch, taste, accumulate and so on. And with all its scientific and technological advances, the modern age has become a giddy descent of the human consciousness into the denseness of matter. But even if matter is inexhaustible, it can ultimately satisfy only physical needs and there will therefore come a time when people will begin to feel satiated and feel the need to elevate themselves to the spiritual regions. They will feel that by returning to the heights, they will find all the riches they had to leave behind when descending into matter. And not only will they find riches, but, thanks to a better understanding, they will be able to benefit fully from all they have acquired in the physical plane, where there is so much to study, work on and enjoy. »

Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov

« Do not lay up treasures on earth for yourselves, where moth and rust corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up treasures in Heaven for yourselves, where neither moth nor rust corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. »

(Mat. 6:19-20)
