Spirituality and Money

Path: Spirituality and Money


Spirituality is basically how we relate to spirit.

Spirit, in it's basic sense, is the Universal Life Force. It is most often conceived as the universal life force running within and between all things in some forms of vitalism.

Various cultural traditions postulate the existence of this esoteric energy. This kind of energy is usually associated with breath: for example qi in Taoist philosophy, prana in Hindu belief, or the "breath of life" (neshamah-chayim) given by God to Adam in the Abrahamic creation story. Thus energy became closely associated with concepts of an animating spirits of the soul (nephesh) of living beings (human, animal or angels).

The universal life force energy (chi or chai), is present within every living thing moving via chakras and meridians. It is the life force (living energy) that sustains the life of organs, cells, tissue, and blood.

Money; manifesting the Spiritual into the Material

Spirituality is the ultimate reality, both material and non-material; it is the inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of his/her being; or the "deepest values and meanings by which people live." Spirituality is not religion nor necessarily affiliated with religion. The essence of spirituality is the search to know our true selves, to discover the real nature of consciousness and how we fit in it.

Spirituality in a broad sense is a concern with matters of the spirit. It is a wide term with many available readings. It may include belief in supernatural powers, as in religion, but the emphasis is on personal experience. Usually a persons own private beliefs in regard to nature or ethical matters. Spiritualities are often viewed as sensitivity or attachment to religious values or to things of the spirit as opposed to material or worldly interests.

Activities associated with spirituality are those which renew, lift up, comfort, heal and inspire those with whom we interact as well as ourselves. Spirituality provide a sense of meaning and purpose, a sense of self and 'that which is greater than self'. It is also practices such as meditation and 'bonding rituals' which support such identity and relationship. Religion represents only a minor subset of the overall themes of spirituality and spiritual practices. However, religion may in some cases hinder rather than assist in spiritual development, especially in the workplace as expressed in organisations in issues such as 'belonging' (identification with).

However, Spirituality is more of a way of living that emphasises a constant awareness of the spiritual dimension of nature, with acknowledgement of its contractual relationship between the material world and the spiritual. Spirituality gives one an inner sense of something greater than oneself. It is recognition of an existence that transcends one's immediate circumstances.

Spirituality in Education

Education should be esoteric in nature. It should provide a "drawing out" of the kind of knowledge that is inseparable from one's own being. Education should include inner education that answers the most simple yet fundamental questions that are asked by every child. In short it should satisfy the mystery of being alive. Education should bring us to the realisation that the spiritual governs and controls the material everywhere. We should come to realize that all of earthly existence is therefore impregnated with meaning, value and the possibility.

This book is a must for every teacher, student, parent, and anyone who loves to learn.
