Brought to you by
Good Morning Flow Masters,
Today’s e-zine shall be an "An Ode to the Big Lottery Jackpots". They seem to be happening now, and so we shall prime you for money magnetism with an article by Swami Kriyananda. One catch, however, if after reading this article you do in fact win the big one let us get together for tea and discuss a few of my big ideas to change the world in quantum leaps. Deal? We can and will do it!!!!
Video Clip of the Week

This is an amazing video of Bishop
Desmond Tutu of South Africa as he refutes the notion that
apartheid was compatible with Christianity as pro Apartheid
supporters claimed. We are fortunate that this piece of
history has been preserved for all time.

Money, we've all heard, is
the root of all evil. This piece of folk wisdom is due,
no doubt, to the fact that so many people mistakenly
imagine that money is the source of all good! For when
we expect too much of anything, we eventually find, as
with idol worship, that the object of our dependence is
not competent to answer our prayers, nor capable of
fulfilling our expectations of it.
Perhaps, then, that ancient
saying should be amended to read, "The love of money is
the root of all evil."
After all, money is not evil
in itself, any more than dynamite is evil. Dynamite can
be used constructively to build roads, or destructively
to demolish buildings. Money, similarly, can be used to
do wonderful things. It is human greed that so often
directs money toward evil ends.
Money represents, quite
simply, a flow of energy. Harm results when money is
loved and hoarded for its own sake. For in hoarding it,
we block the energy-flow.
A child once accompanied his
parents on an outing to the mountains. With them, he
drank cool water from a mountain stream. Loving its
fresh taste, he filled a bottle from the stream and took
it home with him. There, he would sip only a little
water each day, wanting to make it last as long as
What was his disappointment
a few weeks later, then, to find that the water left in
the bottle had become stagnant.
Money, similarly, grows
stagnant when we "bottle it up" - that is to say,
hoard it. To attract a steady money-flow in our
lives, we must learn to view money not as a thing
merely, but as an expression of energy - ultimately,
as an expression of our energy.
magnetism depends to a great extent on understanding
how to use money properly.
Using money properly
depends on realizing that, in acquiring money, we
don't merely manipulate material forces in our
favor. Still less is the acquisition of money a
matter of luck. Rather, we attract money to us. The
other side of that coin is that the failure to
acquire money is essentially an act of repulsion on
our part - unconscious, to be sure. We may push it
from us even while we imagine that we are doing our
best to acquire it.

Both of these concepts - learning how to
attract money, and how to put it to the proper use - depend, finally, on
understanding what truly constitutes our needs, that is, our own, and
others', highest good. For it is a law of life that when we waste any
resource, we encounter a time finally when we can no longer replenish
it. Think of the vast numbers of forests that have been cut without
thought for replanting; of farmland that has been exhausted because its
soil was never replenished.
Think of the many stories of movie stars
who, instead of using their money discriminately, squandered it until,
at last, they were left penniless.
What is wealth? Most people equate it with
investments, with savings, with income, with real property. Yet we've
all known people who got by quite happily on very little money. I've
known others, by contrast, who seemed barely able to scrape by, even
though they may have earned several times as much as the first group.
The strange thing is that those who get by
on very little often manage to obtain more of this world's goods, to go
on more vacations, and to do a great deal in other ways that others with
more money never seemed able to do.
Who among these, then, was the more truly
wealthy? It isn't merely a matter of how much you have, but rather of
how well you know how to use what you have. You know the song from
Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, "I got plenty o' nuthin, an' nuthin's plenty
fo' me"? In the last analysis, one is as wealthy or as poor as he thinks
himself to be. Wealth cannot be equated with some fixed quantity. If one
is wealthy in his mind, or in his spirit, he may require very few
material possessions to be perfectly satisfied with life. If, on the
other hand, one considers himself wealthy only for his material riches,
he may be convinced he is poor even if he has fifty million dollars,
perhaps only because some former classmate of his has ninety million.
I remember a time, in 1963, when an absence
of income, combined with a determination to devote myself to writing a
book (I eventually published it under the title, Crises in Modern
Thought), led to my having to live for three months on only ten dollars
a month. Today, instead of recalling that period of my life as a time of
great privation and hardship, I recall it happily as a time of
satisfying challenge and adventure.
During those three months, I learned all
sorts of tricks for living inexpensively. I sprouted alfalfa seeds. I
made Indian chappatis instead of buying bread. I trained my palate to
enjoy powdered milk, which is much cheaper than regular milk, and to be
content with a single taste of dessert rather than filling myself on a
bowlful of it. I took advantage of special sales at the local grocery
stores. And I concentrated on preparing cheap, but high-energy, foods
like split pea soup, which lasted me several days. No doubt one could
say that I was poor then. Yet I didn't feel particularly poor. I won't
go so far as to say that I felt rich, but the important thing is that,
because I didn't dwell sadly on all the things I lacked, I really wasn't
poor. I'll go farther: In every way that really mattered, I was rich.
There's the charming story of an American
Indian who happily farmed a meager quarter-acre plot. A wealthy neighbor
of his befriended him. One day this friend offered him five acres, to
give him more land to farm. "Thank you for the gesture," the Indian
replied. "But if I had more land to work, when would I find the time for

On the opposite side of
this coin, I've known people with a great deal of
money who could never convince themselves that they
were even well off. And I recall a certain friend of
mine in India, a scientist and a professor at a
respected university. He owned his own home. His
family and he ate well, dressed well, and lived
reasonably well. Yet he considered himself wretched.
His complaint was that he couldn't afford some of
the expensive gadgetry he'd seen and enjoyed in the
West-things like state-of-the-art television. I
recall him weeping to me one evening, "I'm poor! I'm
Wealth is the
consciousness of abundance. And poverty is the
consciousness of lack. Wealth and poverty are both
states of mind. You are as rich, or as poor, as you
believe yourself to be.
Money is important in
this world. A person who writes books needs money to
support him- or herself while he writes. A
photographer needs expensive lenses to take the best
pictures. There is no field of activity in which
money does not figure in some way. Nor do I suppose
that I myself could have lived for very long on only
ten dollars a month. The importance of the right
mental attitude is essential, not only for defining
the parameters of happiness intelligently, but also
for attracting wealth in the first place. For
example, to attract money we must be confident that
we have a right to our fair share of the abundance
of the universe. Indeed, we have that right, all of
Don't be passive in the
demands you make on the universe. Don't wait for
good fortune to smile on you. Be secure in yourself,
and know that you, yourself, are an integral pat of
the cosmic reality.
When you have that
consciousness of living already in abundance, then,
you will attract more abundance. The power to
attract money, and success of every kind, increases
in direct proportion to our ability to recognize,
and attune ourselves to, a greater reality than our
