In the Bible it is written that “The love of money is the root of all evil” (1 Timothy 6:10). From many perspectives, there appears to be much truth to the adage. Yet, in The Kybalion, another book of ancient wisdom, it is written that “all truths are but half-truths.” And while the latter might appear to “dilute” the former, it doesn’t mean that either of them are “wrong.”
Money is on everyone’s mind. It appears to be behind all that gets done, and all that is yet undone appears to be waiting the arrival of a financial consort.
“How will we pay for it?” is the incessant refrain in debates over health care, as though ideas that work are only those that carry a price tag. Modern medicine has been so inept at abating the rising tide of disease that fundraising — “for the cure” — has become big business. Is it really all about money? Are the solutions that we’re seeking only reachable if we throw more money at it the problem? Or does seeing solutions only in our ability to spend money blind us to the real causes that need changing?
Like millions upon millions of others these days, Michael and Amayra Hamilton who formed a community and retreat in Angel Valley, Arizona (www.angelvalley.org), about 10 miles south of Sedona, have themselves been grappling with “the money issue.”
Dedicated to creating a new, workable morphic field from which a paradigm, and eventually a way of living that is not necessarily money dependent may form, the Hamilton’s have often found themselves yet paying homage to what seems like the god of money.
So it was quite the jaw dropper when they scheduled a private session with Cynthia Williams (www.universalheartofoneness.com), trance medium, to seek spiritual guidance. Expecting to hear the soft reassuring energetic presence of the heavenly realms in the Universal Heart or Dolphin Pod of One, they were introduced to the most unexpected, but appropriate “energy”… of money itself, which proclaimed itself to be “god of this world.”
He makes a good point.
The Hamilton’s shared an excerpt from their “conversation” with the god of money at a recent retreat where a group of people gathered to examine our perceptions of money, and how to transcend them.
