Question: You often talk about how the outer circumstances of our lives reflect our inner state of being. Well, I recently figured out that the inner state of being that I’m seeing reflected in my life is anxiety. All of the major problems in my life are all things that I primarily feel anxious about: lack of money, unemployment, insufficient education, etc. Likewise, all the things that I see as solutions to those problems have one thing in common: they seem like they might bring me peace of mind. I’m not particularly interested in money or more employment or further schooling, except as a means to bring myself peace of mind. When I consider any of those things on their own, they feel …empty, unfulfilling. There’s not much point to pursuing any of those things if I still feel anxious once I’ve got them.
Higgins: For every problem any of you will ever encounter there is a solution. If you will allow yourself to tune into that wise voice in your head it will tell you what to do. When you say, “I’m not particularly interested in money or more employment or further schooling, except as a means to bring myself peace of mind,” we wonder what better reason could there be?
When you are interested in anything pay attention to it. Follow up on it. Do something about it because without fail your Broader Being prompts you to feel interest in anything that will lead you towards fulfillment of your heart’s desires.
Money is a playing piece in life. There are few places on Earth where money doesn’t matter much and the achievement of it is very low on the totem pole of happiness. You will not be able to change this absolute hard rule easily or swiftly. Many feel as you do: that money in and of itself has little value. Nevertheless, it will be many years before money becomes archaic so it is a playing piece you will need to master.
Money is not hard. Money flows swiftly. All you need to do is get into the current.
