True prosperity appears to be a pretty all-encompassing state: it looks like health, happiness, money, material things, and spiritual harmony all rolled into one experience. Certainly everyone wants it. So why do so few achieve it?
Because they miss the foundation. They look at the symptoms and not the cause – the single element it is based upon…
That’s because prosperity is not really a state, but a moral power. (Please read that last sentence again.) Prosperity manifests itself outwardly in the state I describe above. But that is the effect, not the cause.
True prosperity is a universal force and it can only be created only by a virtuous soul...
You can’t become prosperous by hoarding money and things. A bitter person with a lot of cash and things is still a bitter person. Someone who acquires money by cheating and exploitation certainly doesn’t live in a state of prosperity.
While money and things at their essence are energy, they still don’t possess life force. By becoming a virtuous person – demonstrating qualities such as love, empathy, integrity, and spirit – you develop the soul of virtue. Prosperity is then unleashed within and through you, manifesting itself outwardly; the effect from the cause.
Contrary to what you heard in The Secret, you don’t actually attract prosperity – you create it, from the law of your being. Prosperity essentially emanates from you. Infinite Intelligence can only do for you what it can do through you. Building upon virtue, you become a force of prosperity. You exist in prosperity and you emanate prosperity, because you are prosperity.
Ain’t it great!
