You will become as great as your dominant aspiration...If you cherish a vision, a lofty ideal in your heart, you will realize it.~James Allen, As You Think
True wealth is spiritual wealth.
While it is fine to pursue material wealth to create positive living conditions for self and others, we should not neglect the true meaning of life: spiritual ascension.
We come into the world with a certain spiritual calibration, and our task from birth to death is to raise our vibration to more subtle levels.
Thus, we are here to gather a different currency other than money. Money, in fact, is a separate energy that is neutral and whose value depends on how it is used.
We come into the world based on our spiritual consent.
We come back because we have a karmic opportunity where consciousness can range from 40 to a 1000. Chances for growth here are optimal.
For example, a savage person is at 40 and Christ is at 1000. Most average people are at around 200. Exceptional people are at 400 or more. And people considered saintly are at 500 or more. At about 540, we step into unconditional love for all beings.
So on this logarithmic scale, our task is to rise in our vibration.
We do this by working on our character.
We accumulate spiritual currency by increasing our love, our compassion, our gratitude, our generosity, our kindness, our connection to our soul, God, and the angelic kingdom, and so on.
When we die, we then go to an astral plane that corresponds with our level of calibration.
Thus, if we are cruel and vicious, we will go to the lower astral realms, which equate with what religions call hell.
If we are kind and loving, we will go to the higher astral realms, which equate with what religions call heaven.
And if we are between these polarities, then we travel to those astral realms that correspond with our level of consciousness. Religions have called this zone, purgatory.
We rise in consciousness by meditating, contemplating, praying, and acting in a way to benefit others, always striving to find the beauty and sacredness of others.
When we become truly compassionate, our life becomes a blessing to all, including ourselves.

Living Life Powered By My Own Intention, Knowing the True Essence of Security
Since my departure from the traditional "Corporate Life" almost 8 months ago at the young age of 42, I have been on a free-bird journey to "find my bliss".

Prior to the September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States and its people of freedom, this article was written in as an outcome of some research that I completed regarding the history of world religions and the fervor of religious dogma that continues to be the mark of "man's inhumanity to man."After reading it again four years later, the words held a greater impact that seems to threaten the heart of every human soul and that touches the lives of all cultures, all religions and spiritual practices as well as the very souls of all humanity.
