Always follow the money but don’t make it your lover. Does money being meditation seem pretty absurd? To live a meditative life is to be in synchronicity and harmony with all of life. A meditator comes from the heart and with discernment of actions that best serve peaceful objectives and with integrity. Is it necessary to be a ‘meditator’ to be that? Of course not. Some people, especially those having been brought up with love and common sense, have the qualities of meditation in their everyday life such as compassion and empathy.
A meditator type sees, feels, and acts with a natural flow of love and concern for all that they encounter during a day. People generally each think that they are special, where a meditative person sees themselves as ordinary even though they may feel blessed that they are alive and who they are. Meditation creates an aura of benevolence in all matters, and no less so in matters of money and integrity on how it is always best handled.
It’s one’s desires that can obstruct a peaceful, meaningful life. More freedoms will come out of dropping desires. If you can become a person of need and no desires, you are already on the path of meditation. There is nothing wrong in money, it’s how it’s handled and without greed or have it be used with desire to benefit you at the expense of another. Money should never be a drug where you desire more and more beyond reasonable and basic needs. There can be no end to wanting more and more so that it consumes one to the point that it becomes your religion. Married couples often have money problems that they say caused their breakup. Always not the case. Love between two always flows through all perceived problems.
The world of money as an everyday past time is a world that shuts off the flow of love and compassion. Everything that comes to us, comes to pass or, more accurately, for us to pass on. Not just the money in our pocket, but wisdom, objects, ideas, even opportunities, all come to us, so that, at the right moment, we can pass them on. This is called flow. Being in the flow means being aware that the river of life is flowing to us at every moment. Being in the flow means accepting whatever comes and putting it to good use, before passing it on. Going with the flow means allowing whatever comes to move on freely, without holding on in any way. If we do not pass on, we are trying to block the flow, and that’s when we feel pressure in our life. Pressure is always self-inflicted. Every time you feel ‘under pressure’ look at what you need to release. Use money with a meditative mind! Giving and receiving from the heart, all money is money meditation. Listen to your heart!
