Last post I told you about the experience of my Mastermind Council member and his wife when I came up with a $30 million-dollar idea for them. I told them that they still had an issue accepting prosperity, based on their inability to think how their life would be different if they earned that kind of money. And because everything they came up with was helping someone else, not themselves.
This is a very common symptom from people that are infected with mind viruses from organized religion. The couple in question are fundamentalist Christians, and like many of them, actually felt that serving everyone except themselves was a sign of spirituality and prosperity. I think it’s just craziness.
Like most Christians, my client felt that he has a rich heavenly Father who wants him to have the kingdom, yet doesn’t see the disconnect in the subliminal programming that it is somehow spiritual to be poor.
He is often offended by my attacks on fundamentalism, and feels that he is not infected with lack programming because he equates believing in Christ as believing in prosperity.
He talks a good game, saying God gave his only begotten son for us, wants us to have the kingdom, etc. But the problem is he doesn’t walk the game.
He keep struggling along, trying to serve others and serve God, and keep his creditors at bay. There is nothing spiritual about this.
I don’t see his lack programming coming from the common mind virus that God is withholding things from him, or is not a benevolent provider. While many fundamentalists have that programming, this is not his problem. He is infected with THE OTHER virus that comes often from organized religion:
The problem he and millions of others face is that deep down on a subconscious level, he feels unworthy of those blessings. The problem is not that he doesn’t believe in God’s love – it is that he feels he is unworthy of that love. Everything he does he compares with the feats of Jesus from the Bible, so of course he always comes up short, since he can’t feed the masses from a couple fish or turn water into wine.
And that is an issue for millions of people. And that is the real crux of what we’ve been talking about on the blog for the last week. Do you really get that?
By the way, this discussion is really not about fundamentalism, God, or Christianity. If you start a knee-jerk defense of any one of those, you’re actually missing the real point and falling victim to your lack programming. The issues we are talking about are very prevalent in agnostics and atheists as well. The ultimate issue here is believing that you are worthy of great prosperity. Organized religion infects a lot of people with this mind virus, but there are plenty of other guilty parties as well.
So how are you doing on this worthiness issue?
