What Did Jesus Really Teach About Seeking Wealth?
By Christopher Westra, Author of I Create Reality
"The desire for increase is inherent in all nature; it is the fundamental impulse of the universe. Man instinctively knows this, and therefore he is always seeking more. This law of perpetual increase is set forth by Jesus in the parable of the talents: Only those who gain more retain any; from him who has not shall be taken away even that which he has. The normal desire for increased wealth is not an evil or a reprehensible thing. It is simply the desire for more abundant life. It is aspiration. And because it is the deepest instinct of their natures, all men and women are attracted to those who can give them more of the means of life."
Wallace Wattles – The Science of Getting Rich
The Natural Desire for Increase
We all desire to have more of the good things of life. When you accept this truth, wonderful blessings will flow into your world.
Many of us have been taught to deny this desire, and thus we fight inside ourselves. A part of us wants increased life and wealth, and yet a part of us tells us this is wrong and bad.
When fragmented in this way, we can't manifest the abundance that is possible for us.
The universe wants to manifest wealth for us as much as we want wealth for ourselves and our loved ones. We have to believe in an abundant universe and not a universe of scarcity!
Jesus said in John 10:10 that he came to earth that we might have life, and that we might have it more abundantly. In addition to the Science of Getting Rich, Wallace Wattles wrote some other books also, including a book about Jesus Christ and the abundant life.
The Teachings of Jesus and the Natural Desire for Wealth
Tony Mase is a friend who has, like myself, found great benefit in the books by Wallace Wattles. In fact, he has taken it upon himself to search out some of his "forgotten" books and bring them to the world. After many years, he found a copy of his book about Jesus.
Here is a link to Jesus, The Man and His Work. I bought the book and read it and it definitely helped me overcome some of my religious misunderstandings about increased wealth.
Here is what Tony says about the book:
"If you're confused by what you've read or heard about Jesus and His teachings... or if your heart is telling you one thing while orthodox churches and organized religions are telling you another... or if you're having trouble reconciling your desire for wealth and success with your religious beliefs... then please read this message very carefully. It might be the most important information you read all year. It may well be the most important information you'll ever read!"
How Holographic Time Brings Increase Into Our Lives
The lack of abundance in our life is only a result of our belief in scarcity. Our belief in scarcity results from our belief in a future in which there will never be enough. Our belief in a scarce and fearful future results from our belief in linear time.
Did Jesus teach us to fear for the future? No, he taught that we should trust and that all would be taken care of. So let's turn around the paragraph above – until it reads:
The abundance in our life is a result of our belief in an infinitely abundant universe. Our belief in infinite abundance goes hand in hand with the belief that this infinite abundance exists right now. Our belief in an abundant and giving universe results from our belief in holographic time.
Remember that we live in holographic time when we experience holographic consciousness – whole and complete at all times! A hologram is always whole and complete and cannot be fragmented.
One side benefit of living in holographic consciousness is the feeling of complete safety and security. You can't fear the future when it doesn't exist!
I never realized how much fear I lived in until I truly came to understand holographic time, and the power of the present moment. It feels good not to worry and fear about tomorrow.
Increased Life and Abundance for All People
In this infinitely abundant universe, there is enough for all. You never need to take away from another in order to get what you want for yourself or your family. Manifesting abundance doesn't work for those who try to take from others.
Move away from the competitive model and into the creative model of wealth creation. There is literally no scarcity of any good thing in the universe.
The very idea of scarcity and competition for scarce resources is a function of living in linear time. Be whole and complete in each holographic moment and let the infinitely abundant universe manifest in your life!
