“Your personal welfare begins with your consciousness. It is not what happens on Wall Street. It is not the “state of the economy.” It has its inception in the state of your mind. You can be prosperous when business is poor, and you can experience financial difficulties even when business is booming.” Spiritual Economics by Eric Butterworth
It is so easy to get sidetracked by what is on the news or what our neighbor said or what our family thinks of us. It takes practice to stay centered on spiritual truth, knowing that God is the only source of our supply. All good comes from God. It may come to us through a company, person, opportunity. But the source is God.
Knowing that frees us from being victim of the world around us. Practicing makes it reality in our lives.
The news media reports every day that we are in tough economic times and instills fear into our thinking. In the presence of fear our ideas shrink and opportunities seem to disappear. Fear stops the flow of good from coming into our lives.
Universal law states: Whatever we put our attention on increases. When we consciously change our inner thoughts, we see outward results. When we understand the spiritual laws of money, we can take dominion instead of feeling like a victim.
Eric Butterworth states, “There is only one way by which you can achieve prosperity. It is to take charge of our mind. You may be looking for some magic formula, some new metaphysical cliché that will change things. But if you want to change your life, you will have to alter your thoughts.”
Choose your thoughts and words carefully. Turn off the news. Walk away from negative energy. Create a gratitude list. Speak with good intention. Call a friend for support. Declare: I am willing to receive.
