‘Money’– is a very common term that we daily come across. But do you really know the right attitude towards it? Searching for the correct answer but not getting it? Here we are!
This article is surely for you. In this article we will discuss the two aspects:
- What is money?
- The right attitude towards it.
Without any further intro, let’s dive into the main matter.
What is money?
Money is the visible sign of a universal force and this force in its manifestation on earth works on the vital and physical planes and is indispensable to the fullness of the outer life. This is indeed one of the three forces-power, wealth, sex-that have the strongest attraction for the human ego and are most generally miss- held and misused by those who retain them.
The seekers or keepers of wealth are more often possessed rather than its possessors. Some even put a ban on money and riches and proclaim poverty and bareness of life as the only spiritual condition. But this is an error, it leaves the power in the hands of the hostile forces.
The right attitude towards money
You must neither turn with an ascetic shrinking from money power, that means it gives and the objects it brings, nor cherish a rajasic attachment to them or a spirit of enslaving self-indulgence in their gratifications. Regard wealth simply as a power to be won back for the Mother and placed at her service.
In your personal use of money look on all you have. Make no demand but accept what you receive and use it for the purposes for which it is given to you. Be entirely selfless, entirely scrupulous, exact, careful in detail, a good trustee. On the other hand, what you receive for her, lay religiously before her, turn nothing to your own or anybody else’s purpose.
Do not look up to men because of their riches or allow yourself to be impressed by show , the power or the influence. If you are free from the money-taint but without any ascetic withdrawal, you will have a greater power to command the money for the divine work Equality of mind, absence of demand and the full dedication of all you possess is the main attitude towards money. Any perturbation of mind with regard to money and its use, any claim, any grudging is a sure index of some imperfection or bondage. Never for a moment fall into desire or attachment to wealth or to the things that uses or servitude to self-indulgence or a weak bondage to the habits that the possession of riches creates.
But first it must be conquered back and those will be strongest for the conquest who are in this part of their nature strong and large and free from ego and surrendered without any claim or withholding or hesitation, pure and powerful channels for the Supreme Puissance.
In the supra-mental creation the money force has to be restored to the Divine Power and used for a true and beautiful and harmonious equipment and ordering of a new divinised vital and physical existence in whatever way the Divine Power decides in her creative vision.
So this is the right attitude that we all need to follow. Rather running behind it, try to surrender it for divine works.
If you want to be a true doer of divine works, your first aim must to be totally free from all desire and self-regarding ego. All your life must be an offering and sacrifice to the Supreme.
