Does Religion or Spirituality Influence Financial Success? Find Out.

Published

on

Today, people are building businesses, following their passions, or getting employed, because they want to achieve financial success.

However, there is this idea that being deeply religious or spiritual can enable an individual to achieve financial success. Is this idea true? Let’s find out.

Although many people think spirituality and religion are different, these two fields are almost similar because they both believe we are connected to something larger than life. Furthermore, they both believe that a person’s life becomes better when he or she establishes a strong connection with this HIGHER POWER/GOD.

Also, spiritual and religious people support virtues such as faith, generosity, kindness, love, and so on. Both fields believe that adopting such qualities promises a good life.

These beliefs have resulted in many people becoming religious or deeply spiritual because they want to live better lives. However, some people embrace religion and spirituality because they believe that being religious or spiritual can help them achieve financial success.

Little do they know that a person can meet financial success with or without being spiritual or religious. The crucial determinant of whether an individual will achieve financial success or not is hard work. No matter how hard you pray or how spiritual/religious you are, you will never meet financial success if you are lazy.

However, spirituality or religion can increase a person’s chances of achieving financial success if combined with hard work because being spiritual makes the journey to financial success more enjoyable.

It is very hard for a highly spiritual/religious person to give up on the journey to success because he or she probably believes that a HIGHER POWER, which is all-powerful and all-knowing is helping him along the journey. The confidence that one is working with a Higher Power or God enables the person to be sure of achieving success hence making it almost impossible for him/her to give up.

A rich and famous American entrepreneur once revealed that believing in a HIGHER POWER is necessary in the journey to financial success because this journey is tough. The journey’s toughness and uncertainties make an individual realize that he/she cannot travel alone hence forcing the person to seek the assistance of something more POWERFUL.

Spirituality and religion also enable an individual to be trustworthy, faithful, and peaceful with whatever happens.

The journey to success appears easier and interesting if you have such qualities. For instance, the more trustworthy you are, the more people will like to do business with you or promote you to higher positions. Furthermore, if you have immense faith and you’re good with whatever happens, you won’t be disturbed by failures or disappointments while striving for financial success.

Therefore, although financial success requires hard work and determination, it’s arguable that being spiritual or religious also aids in achieving this success.

Embracing spirituality or religion makes you attain inner-peace, and enables you to have immense faith and confidence hence making the journey easier because nothing can beat FAITH, CONFIDENCE, and a CALM MIND.

Why We Are Our Biggest Enemy

Published

on

Most of us blame life for our misfortunes and frustrations. We think we are unhappy because life is not on our side. Little do we know that we are our biggest enemy because we are frustrated although life blessed us with wonderful things that ensure we live well.

For instance, life blessed us with imagination so that we become creative and use our creativity to improve our lives. However, we use imagination to visualize the worst possible outcome. Moreover, it gave us memory to remember and correct our past mistakes, but we use it to relive the bad things that happened in the past.

Besides this, life gave us an intuitive voice to guide us, but we let our egos direct us towards unfulfilling lives. It also provided us with the stars to please our eyes and beautiful views to relax the mind, but we find these wonders useless.

Additionally, life gave us a mind with powerful magnetic forces to help us attract what we mostly dwell on, but we dwell on negative thoughts and therefore, attract negative events in our lives. It also created many human beings so that we support and love each other, but we are selfish, and we wish bad things upon others. We then attract these terrible things because wishing bad things for others lowers our vibration.

Furthermore, life provides us with endless opportunities. It ensures that we get whatever we want so long as we are courageous and risk-taking. However, we are afraid to take risks, and we complain when we don’t move forward. It gave us talents that can employ us and make us reach our full potentials, but we choose to work in boring jobs that never lead to growth.

Life is good. It gave us amazing bodies to enable us to experience the physical world fully. But we hate our bodies because we compare them with unrealistic bodies the media shows us. We also destroy our bodies by eating unhealthy foods, and we blame God for giving us a bad body and making us prone to diseases.

Furthermore, life gave us a self-healing body that naturally gets rids of toxins, and medicinal plants that treat various diseases, but we invest in pharmaceutical drugs that only eliminate the symptoms of our illnesses. We complain when we can’t access health care yet there are many affordable traditional treatment methods that can completely eradicate our ailments.

We are never thankful to Infinite Intelligence for allowing us to experience life in a physical realm. Moreover, we don’t live fully by living moment by moment and trusting that everything will fall into place. Lastly, we never meditate on life and realize how life always ensures that we live well. For this reason, we are our biggest enemy.

Does Polytheism Make More Sense?

Published

on

Monotheism is the belief in one God, while polytheism is the belief in many gods.

After studying ancient cultures for a while, I realized that most of them were polytheistic.  Most ancient African, European, American and Asian cultures believed in many gods. They believed in the gods of wisdom, gods of wealth, gods of nature, gods of warriors and so on. Ancient folks prayed to particular gods for particular things.  If an individual wanted wealth, he would pray to the god of wealth, and if another wanted luck, he would pray to the gods of luck and good fortune.

Besides this, some ancient cultures worshipped many gods but believed in a supreme God that dominated other gods. For example, the Greeks believed Zeus was the King of Gods, but they also worshipped the other gods.

Furthermore, while studying ancient cultures, it dawned on me that polytheism is older than monotheism. Sarah Johnson agrees with me for she wrote, “polytheism is always the older or ‘primary’ and monotheism the newer or secondary type of religion (Sarah Johnson, Ancient Religions).” It, therefore, appears that monotheists borrowed the concept of God from polytheists.

However, most people believe polytheism is a form of paganism. Little do they know that the concept of one god appeared after people unified polytheistic gods into one Supreme-being. Some scholars even argue that monotheism began when Akhenaten, an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh, forced Egyptians to practice monotheism. 

I’m sometimes tempted to believe polytheism makes more logical sense than monotheism. Sometimes I wonder if God can hear all our prayers, answer them, and guide all of us at the same time. Maybe it’s true, as polytheists believe, that God rules over other gods that assist him in guiding us, and listening to our prayers. It also makes sense that if one wants wisdom and wealth, she should pray to the god of wisdom and wealth, instead of praying to the King of Gods/God.

Perhaps God’s only duty is to provide life to the universe while other gods’ duties are to take care of us and guide us. Maybe we even have guardian gods that help us deal with life and fulfill our destinies.

Lastly, is it sensible to argue that all ancient cultures believed in many gods because they were primitive, or because it was logical to believe in many gods? Moreover, why did various ancient cultures which never met, coincidentally believe in many gods? Maybe it’s because these gods existed.

Anyway, the idea of many gods should be taken seriously because it might be the secret to freedom and understanding the higher realms. Maybe monotheism was created because it prevents people from realizing the true nature of the higher realms and it’s easier to control people who believe in one God.
