Minister's Moment

One of the biggest stumbling blocks to spiritual growth is our relationship to money and our attitude about what it signifies. One challenge is the need to see money through the duality of human thought. From this perspective, money is either good or bad-the source of evil and corruption. On the other hand, money can be viewed as very spiritual in that it doesn’t distinguish how it’s used. In this sense, it is an aspect of God. Money is a physical denotation of the flow of divine energy that it is available to us. How we see it and use it is what determines its nature. Furthermore, it is our thinking and feelings about it that make it what it is to us. When seen in a positive way, money can be a tool that serves the divine intention for good. Lynn Twist talks about her discovery of people’s attitudes toward money in her 20 years of fund-raising work for the World Hunger Project. She said: “It was in this soul-searching dimension of fund-raising, in these intimate conversations, that I discovered deep wounds and conflicts in the way people related to their money. Many people felt they had sold out and become someone they didn’t like anymore. Some were forcing themselves to do work that wasn’t meaningful. Many felt enslaved by their experience of being overtaxed by their government or felt beaten down by their boss or by the burden of running a family business or employing others. Their relationship with money was dead – or more accurately, dread – and there was hurt there. There was resentment. There were painful compromises, a kind of rawness. People were bruised and battered there. Not everyone, but many people were very unsettled and uncomfortable and just not their best selves in their relationship with money. They felt little or no freedom with money, no matter how much they had. What became clear was that when people were able to align their money with their deepest, most soulful interests and commitments, their relationship with money became a place where profound and lasting transformation could occur. Their money – no matter what the amount – became the conduit for this change.”
