Simple Steps: #5 Wealth Management

Yogis managing wealth?? You bet!

The very nature of the fifth yama, aparigraha, invites us to a relationship with wealth that neutralizes the desire to hoard it, thereby increasing the flow.

What's wrong with hoarding?

Hoarding itself implies a lack of faith. We never know how we will be provided for, and so we gather, hold on and squeeze tight to what we've got.

Addressing our hoarding tendencies requires a letting of of our attachment to things, and an understanding that impermanence and change are constants and therefore true.

Managing our wealth WELL is an inspiration to the world as we engage in the flow of Nature's abundance.

The Mystic knows that as we give with ease and generosity, the World gives back exponentially in return.

The wondrous part is that we never know just HOW that return will occur!

Engage the flow and have faith that you will receive exactly what you need.

Today's Simple Step

Do yourself the biggest favor today:

Determine something you yourself think you need, then find a way to give that very thing, or something like it, to another.

Whether it is an emotional gift like forgiveness, or a material gift, offer what you can and engage the flow today.
