What truly characterizes genuine wealth?
As I embark once more on facilitating the Creating Soul, a mentorship program I offer every 2 years, I am compelled to reflect on how, in the vastness of human consciousness, real wealth and growth transcend mere material possessions. This reflection aligns perfectly to the Venus Frequency of Friday, Venus Day.
True wealth is a state of mind; it embodies the capacity to direct our senses purposefully and channel resources for the societal good.
Wealth can be both a test and a tool for the soul. It is a test because it challenges us to maintain our spiritual integrity, humility, and purpose in the face of potential greed, ego, and materialism. On the other hand, it is a tool because it offers vast opportunities for spiritual actions – acts of charity, kindness, and the creation of spaces or initiatives that foster spiritual growth and community connection.
Wealth, when understood and utilized correctly, provides an opportunity for the soul to expand. This doesn't mean merely acquiring more possessions, but rather the growth in understanding, compassion, and connection to the divine purpose. As one's wealth increases, so does the potential for their spiritual responsibilities and capabilities to expand.
Maimonides, the great physician, philisopher and scholar said: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."
This emphasizes a deeper understanding of the purpose and responsibility of wealth.
Recognizing that our consciousness extends beyond our physical cravings paves the way to true prosperity. True affluence doesn't arise from ego-driven desires but stems from the soul, which is boundless.
The essence of wealth lies in grounding the soul within our earthly journey. Ancient sages taught that a significant portion of the soul resides in the arc line. Merging body and soul in a sacred union propels us into our infinite potential.
As the sun sets and we welcome another Shabbat, let us turn our hearts and minds to the Book of Proverbs, where the teachings of Lady Wisdom resonate with timelessness. From this sacred text, we read:
"Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. For those who find me find life and receive favor from the LORD." - Proverbs 8:34-35
The essence of Lady Wisdom, as beautifully portrayed in Proverbs, speaks to the infinite abundance and richness that lies in understanding and heeding her teachings. She is not merely a bringer of material wealth but offers the more profound riches of insight, understanding, and a life lived in alignment with the Divine.
On this Shabbat, as we reflect on abundance in all its forms, let us embrace the teachings of Lady Wisdom. Let us recognize that true abundance is not only about what we possess but about the depth of our understanding, the breadth of our compassion, and the richness of our spiritual lives.
As we light the Shabbat candles, may their glow illuminate the abundant blessings and wisdom that surround us. May we be inspired to seek, listen, and find the life and favor that Lady Wisdom promises.
"As above, so below."
When we honor and invite the Divine Feminine Presence into our existence, creating a bridge to Alaha in the celestial realm, it mirrors and manifests as richness and abundance in our earthly lives.
Today, observe any voids or perceived emptiness in your life and understand that these spaces represent the creative abyss, yearning for you to infuse them with your boundless essence, and not with a sense of lack.
We are eternally crafting our destiny with inspired creativity. Lady Wisdom, Chochmah. Shekhinah, the Divine Feminine Presence, is here to guide us in the co-creation of the life of Grace and Abundance that you, we, are here to experience.
Have a glorious day.
Shlama -Shalom - Salam - Peace - Paz, and may your heart be ever-filled with the abundance of divine wisdom.
