Inner Heart, Outer Mind

A “set definite objective” must be established if you are to accomplish anything in a big way. So says the classic of self-development, THE MESSAGE OF A MASTER. In my last post I wrote about Ilgar’s insights* regarding this: the role and workings of the human heart and the fickle nature of the human mind.

Why a “set definite objective”? According to THE MESSAGE there are reasons.

The First: The Inner Mind is the “positive pole” of a human being; the Outer Mind is the “negative”. A (+) and a (-) are needed to complete a circuit or a circle anywhere in nature or there would be NO motion, NO activity, thus NO experience. Welcome to this side of the speed of light and the Universe of Duality!

In everything that is obedient to the Law, the “Positive dominates & governs and the Negative serves. But humanity reverses this. It permits The Outer Mind to direct and govern without instruction” and so reports ‘bad news’: strife, war, obstacles, competition, “impossibilities”.

Why does it do so? Because of the absence of direction. The Outer Mind is left to wander aimlessly without PURPOSE, accepting everything and without the ability to differentiate.

The Second: “People who have no “set definite objective” are tuning in to everything and getting nothing. They are at the mercy of millions of conflicting thoughts and their lives are full of distress.” On the other hand, “People who have a “set definite objective” deliberately tune in to ONE THING. If it is money, they get it. A position, they get it. Nothing that such people tune in to can be withheld.”

The Third: “When you set your Inner Mind on anything, you transfer a portion of your Life Force to that thing or it could never be drawn to you.” The intensity of your desire/INTENTION governs the power with which the force is directed. This is part of the so-called price that must be paid.

(This is the INTENTION part of my equation INTENTION + ATTENTION = ATTRACTION.)

Continue to nourish the one Thing by holding it in your Inner Mind -> PAY INTENTION – and by taking focused, directed Action -> PAY ATTENTION your desire will manifest.

So if you are desiring or PAYING INTENTION to several objectives, entertaining more than one dream at a time, setting more than one goal, having more than one “set definite objective”, your force becomes divided and each of the several desires/dreams/goals/intentions receives an insufficient, weak stimulus. Not enough to ATTRACT any of them. Manifestation will be delayed if not altogether thwarted.

But all this can be reversed.

*Before we address that, please note that what THE MESSAGE calls the Inner Mind, Ilgar called the Heart, and the Outer Mind he simply called the Mind or Brain. You might want to read these posts again to help make this clearer: Set Your Heart & Your Mind Will Follow and Attraction = Intention + Attention.

Money-When It Is Profane Part 4

In business, in a relationship, in any aspect of life, when someone focuses ONLY on money – removing all Life & Energy from their Intent and focus of Attention – they are committing an act of profanity.

Money = Energy = Life

This equation, and more importantly the understanding of it, is what makes Money sacred.

Abrogate the implicit wisdom of it, break the equation, and Money becomes profane.

We are each of us born with specific talents that we are each responsible for discovering, developing and using to solve problems for ourselves and others. In other words, TO SERVE.

And in return for your service to yourself and others, in return for loving others as you love yourself, you receive more Life or Energy – in the form of Money.

Isolate anything too much and it becomes profane.

Commit any act to acquire Money only, without regard to replenishment, and it is a Crime.

Want more Money? Serve more people. Solve more problems.

Want millions? Serve millions. Solve the problems of millions.

Take their Money without serving and you’re a Criminal.

Too simplistic? Go back & read it again . . .

. . . in return for your service to yourself and others, in return for loving others as you love yourself, you receive more Life or Energy – in the form of Money.

How do you feel about that?

Money – Its Metaphysical Nature-Part 3

Money is not matter. To believe that it is, is to shackle yourself to it.

Money is not material. When people call others who are money-conscious “materialists”, they couldn’t be more wrong.

Money is as insubstantial as one can imagine. It is a shadow of the material world, cast by human activity.

Because Money stands in as a substitute for human energy, there is a sacred quality to it. This uncommon appreciation of Money renders the belief that it is evil, or the root of evil, utterly ridiculous. If one believes Money is inherently evil then the required equivalent belief is that human life is inherently evil.

Money can never be evil. Only human activities to secure it can be. Consider, for the sake of brevity, that there are two ways to obtain Money.

The first is to provide goods or services to others and in exchange you get either other goods and services – barter – or an agreed upon  medium of exchange – Money. Either way value flows in both directions.

Now consider the second way. Goods or services are promised.  Money is exchanged but the promise is never kept. Or worse, Money is simply taken with no regard to either goods or services. Now we have a crime.

Money is never evil and since it represents a repository of human life, sweat and toil, it possesses a sacred dimension that humanity is virtually unconscious of.

How do you feel about that?

Money – What’s It Worth To You?-Part 2

In the 1948 classic film, THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE, about gold and greed and what it does to men, directed by John Huston and starring Humphrey Bogart and the director’s father Walter Huston, this question is asked: Why is gold worth whatever it is an ounce?

Howard, played by Walter Huston, explains: “A thousand men, say, go searching for gold. After six months, one of ’em is lucky – one out of the thousand. His find represents not only his own labor but that of nine hundred and ninety-nine others to boot. That’s uh, six thousand months or five hundred years scrabbling over mountains, going hungry and thirsty. An ounce of gold, mister, is worth what it is because of the human labor that went into the finding and the getting of it. . . . Gold itself ain’t good for nothin’ except makin’ jewelry with and gold teeth.”

Gold is “good for nothin’ ” but Gold in those days WAS money. All paper currency used to be backed by a precious metal, usually gold or silver, and was printed only under the conditions that the metal be on hand physically in a vault somewhere in the country. The currency had printed on it GOLD or SILVER CERTIFICATE and was able to be exchanged for the equivalent amount of metal at any bank. This lasted until President Roosevelt closed the “gold window”. Much later President Nixon took the dollar off the gold standard. It’s open to debate which was the bigger crime.

But I don’t mean to dwell on the economics or the politics of the situation. I wish to remain on the symbology and metaphysics of money, using this bit of film dialogue to illustrate this point:

Gold has been money for thousands of years and its value has always been determined by its scarcity which translates into the amount of human energy (labor) expended into its discovery, recovery and the physical work done to or on it.

Money is a symbol for human work-energy-life. It doesn’t take much of a stretch to understand that one’s attitude towards life in general is pretty equivalent to one’s attitude towards money. And vice versa.

More next time.

Money-Metaphysically Speaking Part 1

Along with sex and religion, many of us were told not to talk about money or how much of it we earn. Isn’t that kind of silly? But there is a reason for it. You may even discern it yourself as we go along.

We were all taught the usual in school, that money is a medium of exchange. And that’s where it usually ended because most want to just get on with getting as much of it as possible. But haven’t you ever wondered what money really is?

Well, to start with, money isn’t real. It’s an abstraction, a symbol and symbols stand for something. So here’s what money stands for: work. Money is a symbol of work that has been done or a promise of work to be done. Since work symbolizes energy expended, in the past or the future, we can say that work = energy = money.

Money is the link between many polarities among them physical matter and energy.

Money is Energy. Since it is energy-work finished (past) or promised (future) it is somehow coalesced or congealed.

Money is Congealed Energy, Coalesced Energy. That’s what makes it have such peculiar attributes. It’s quasi-matter and quasi-energy. Both sacred and profane at the same time too.

Consider: you have an idea, you expend the energy necessary and your result is a physical object or a physical task. If you can deliver either to someone one of your rewards is MONEY. And the money paid to you is the result of that person’s energy having been expended. And so on and so on and so on.

How do you feel about that?
