The Love of Money

leave a comment »

I hate money.

I’m just being honest about my feelings on the subject.

I know, I’m into metaphysics and spirituality, and according to the so-called Law of Attraction I need to have good feelings about money in order to “attract it” into my life.

Believe me, I’ve worked on this.  A Lot!

But no matter how I approach it, so far I have been unsuccessful in finding a way to love the stuff.

I mean really – how do you love something that is at the core of politics and war, poverty and hunger, and the consumer driven economy that is literally tearing our planet to shreds? How?  I ask you.  To me, learning to love money is like learning to love Hitler.  It just doesn’t seem doable, or even like a good idea.

On the other hand, perhaps the love of money is not the issue here.  Perhaps it’s the wanting and needing of money that’s causing all the stress and tension?  If so, I might be able to find a way to love money – to thank it for it’s tremendous contributions to the Illusion of Separation that we all share, and that makes physical reality possible.  Maybe, if I could love it for that, and let go of my needs or wants for money, then just maybe something I could live with would emerge.  Maybe.  I don’t know.

Money has been around for so long and is so deeply embedded in human consciousness that imagining a world without it is quite a challenge for anybody.  But I’m trying – because I do know one thing without a doubt.  If I can see it in my mind, then it’s possible.  And a world free from the stress and terrors of money is one worth thinking about.

Love&Gratitude,
