poverty / destitute


< Clarity 9 > You believe yourself to be destitute - it is only part of the truth. You're going to be learning that "destitute"... that poverty and abundance actually are the same thing. The same energy, Shaumbra, the same energy. You've been playing a game that they're separate. You've been acting them out different but it is all the same. You are spiritual physicists of the highest order.

< (Next) 4 > How many of you have money issues? So it's a pattern you've got into. Somewhere along the line you developed a pattern of not ever having quite enough or, as Tobias would say, you bought into the 'just barely enough' consciousness - just barely enough to fill the gas tank to get here, just barely enough to pay the rent - but not enough to absolutely enjoy life.

It has its origin - I'm speaking generally here - it has its origins in some of your early church work, you know, the vows of poverty are still hanging around. And I would say, actually, for most of you now it's more of a matter of thinking that if you suddenly got a lot of money that it was going to overpower you, that it would affect you, corrupt you, make you do something bad. You would get off of this disciplined - crap - path that you've been on, and it would somehow keep you stuck here on Earth. Part of you is thinking, "You know, this is going to be probably my last lifetime - maybe second to the last - and if I get a lot of money, I'll probably want to stay, because I'll be rich and I can do all these things. And you know what? I really don't want to stay, so I'm not going to have any money."
