Is Prosperity Dead...?

No...The Road to Prosperity Has Not Changed...
While many things are changing in this particular cycle of sacred time, there are some principles of ancient wisdom that remain the same. Here are some we have observed:

1.  The Prosperous Tend to Follow Their own Wisdom and not the Wisdom of the Crowd.  (On this note, we have found that the still, small voice inside is always right.  It is either "yes" or  "no." 

A "maybe" is a sign that it's not yet time to make a decision.)

2.  Prosperity Starts with Keeping Life Balanced Between the Material and the Spiritual.  We need to set aside time every day to maintain our connection with the divine source of all life, however we define It/He/She/Them/We.

3.  One Can Never Prosper by Spending More Than one Takes in.  The world around us is always tempting us with things that might bring temporary relief from our pain and isolation.  But in the long run, we cannot consume beyond our material means and expect to be prosperous.

4.  Material Prosperity Comes From Investing our Surplus into Ventures and Assets that will Grow Without our Input.  This includes buying real property such as farmable land and scarce commodities (precious metals, minerals, drinkable water) and investing directly into promising businesses. These are assets that grow themselves without working at them.

5The Truly Rich Have Made Others Rich Along the Way.  Prosperity comes from investing in the welfare of others. Using our blessings to confer blessings on those around us will always come back to us one-hundred fold.

Sharing our money, food, our living space, our time, our kind words, our energy and our wisdom with those around us builds up a treasure in the unseen world of the spiritual.  It will come back to us in times of need.

6.  Tithing Never goes Out of Fashion.  All spiritual traditions and teachings of ancient wisdom remind us that a tithe is the first bill we need to pay. Many teachings use 10% as the guideline.

7.  Health is Wealth.  Without good health, we cannot put out the energy it takes to prosper. Take a healthy, robust soul, strip away all of their material goods and put them naked in the street.  Come back later and find their good health has allowed them to regain all that has been lost. They are able to get back on their feet.

Likewise, take a materially wealthy soul and strip them of their good health and they are forever handicapped.
