Money is a form of energy. Like the word “current” when referring to water, currency reflects the term money and its function. The term “affluence” means to flow in abundance. It allows an efficient exchange of energy.
Hence to hoard or to stop the flow of energy by stopping the flow of money out of our lives mean to stop the flow coming in. Giving engenders receiving.
If you stop the flow of either you derail your life from its alignment with nature’s universal laws and principles. The more you give, the more you will receive. If you seek affluence, seek to help others become materially affluent. If you want to be blessed, learn to silently bless others.
“You need not look about for the reward of a just deed; a just deed in itself offers a still greater return” – Seneca
We are naturally abundant, and affluence is our natural state. We lack nothing because our essential nature is one of pure potential.
The idea of giving away what you have especially if you don’t have much is a tough one to wrap your head around. But if you truly want to be rich (both literally and figuratively), getting into the frame of mind of giving is a step in the right direction.
