If the love of money is the root of ALL evil, then where is pedophilia based in money? And Arson? And, and, and. So the saying is wrong for this age. It should read “the love of money is the root of many evils“, But is it “love of” or it is it “lusting after”. I don’t believe it is love of because “God is Love“, Love is detached, not attached. To be attached to something is to “Lust after it”. So the quote should read “The lusting after money is the source of many evils“.
Even “lusting after” is too wordy, better and clearer to read “attachment” So we end up with the quote…
“ATTACHMENT TO MONEY IS THE SOURCE OF MANY EVILS“
And that, I believe, is the true quote for today, for this age .
Now if attachment to money is the source of many evils, then the opposite must be true too. The opposite of attachment is DETACHMENT. So Detachment from money must be the source of many good (works).
And this too is true, because the spiritual life is set up on two columns – connection to Love and good works (creating a divine civilisation). How can we create a divine civilisation without access to money, as money is the universal (Godly) form of exchange between Goods, Services and and Money! What I am saying here that the secret of using money spiritually is to use it in a detached way. But how do we learn how to do this? By gifting! Gifting is the training tool of detachment! To Be Spiritual, we must gift properly. To gift properly we must practice, practice, practice!
Know that Gifting is of two forms – gifting to yourself and gifting to others. Which is the most important? Gifting to yourself is. I know that this will sound contradictory to many, but the source is spiritual. Who does God Love and Honour first? God of course! The love of God for God is the highest and purest form of Love. We (you and I) are made in the image of God. So spiritually we must love our Godly part first and our physical part second. This is supported by the eleventh commandment (how many of you didn’t know there are 11 commandments?) Christ gave just one commandment, “Love thou One another as I love thee” [John 13:34] One is, and always has been, the word for yourself. Another is the old English word for other people, So it reads “Love yourself and others, as I Love you”. And how are we loved? Wholly and unconditionally! So it reads in full. “Love yourself and others wholly (Holy) and unconditionally” And that is the eleventh commandment for today, for this age. And gifting is the training ground for implementing this commandment.
People find it hard to gift to themselves wholly and unconditionally because they have been taught that to think of yourself first is “evil” or “egotistical”. But spiritually this is not so. God loves Himself above all others! And we should too! Because the spiritual principle is “As within, so without“. What we have ourselves is what we can practice. Got the ability to heal? Then “Physician heal thyself!” You wouldn’t go to a sick doctor to get healed yourself would you? Of course not. How is a sick doctor going to heal you when he can’t even heal himself?!
So when we gift to ourselves, how do we handle it in a spiritual way? We create a legacy for many to use. In my case that is a family bank that will pass down through the generations. Always gift to yourself first, then to others. At the moment I am gifting to myself first, then to others in the form of myself, two of my sons and three of my grand children. All gifts go into the family bank. At the moment the gifts are very small, as I am still in the Poor stage but I am rapidly approaching the Wealthy stage, when my training will amplify my giftings in proportion to my income – to full 10% and 10% (the Spiritual Perito Principle) of gross income. If you haven’t been gifting consistently, on a regular basis then it is very hard to implement when wealth (prosperity) comes upon you and you easily fall out of prosperity.(wealth is not earned like riches [doing and having] but earned by the returns from seed gifting [all seeds produce an abundant crop in return])
All big things come from small things. The oak tree comes from an acorn, we come from two tiny elements (ovum and sperm) and wealth comes from “seed gifting”. Seed gifting is also called “Invoking the token“, where we do something on a small scale (seed) and grow it from there to a full crop. In gifting, the amount of money you gift is not important, What is important in the eyes of the laws is the consistency of the gifting. Giftings must be made every time you receive a windfall or salary, without exception. This is the hard part of giftings – without exception! Which is why we start small and grow it with our returns (windfalls/karmic returns) at the full two 10%’s. We can afford to reach the full 10 percents of gross with the returns because they initially have no tax attached to them and over time our surpluses grow to easily accommodate tax and the full 10%s which means we end up gifting 2 x 16.5%s = 33% of our gross income. No one can afford that on a non-spiritual (physical) level. And even if they can, they probably won’t because they are too attached to money to do it! .
So we start with a seed and when we reap a grown plant we pay the full ten percents of gross to ourselves and others! Spiritually, what this is achieving is this; the seed gifting is done by the poor and the full 10 percents are done by the wealthy. So gifting in seed is the beginning of our transformation to wealth (prosperity). Perfect, Perfect, Perfect!!!
The Wholistic (holy) Peace and Prosperity Network is an organisation to help us transform ourselves to the station of Poor and then to the station of Wealthy. In this age most of us cannot be just Poor (except those deemed to this station by God) but use Poor as a stepping stone to wealth (Wealth is a spiritual manifestation of this new age), WPPN was gifted to me by God in an vision in 1992, and I have been working on it ever since. It is a huge concept, absolutely enormous! But still very simple in it’s elements and easy to do, because everything starts with a seed! Plant the seed, tend the plant, reap the crop! Only in this way can we actually learn to Love money in a spiritual way that produces a divine civilisation! Which is our secondary purpose in life.
