Five Steps to Health, Wealth
by David Meacham
Most people struggle just to get by in this world and spend much of their
time fighting with others for their share of the world's pie. If you want to get
out of this trap and realize abundance, or true health and happiness, then you
need to adopt another philosophy of life and put your principles into practice.
Here is a step by step approach to living a life of abundance.
1. Remember that you have infinite potential: Right now you are probably using
less than 1% of your total physical, mental and spiritual wealth. Instead of
feeling that "I can't do it", you should feel that the force which is guiding
the universe is also guiding you.
2. Understand that this universe has been created out of joy, and not suffering:
The universe flows from one infinite consciousness whose nature is Bliss.
Whatever we find in the world is only a transformed state of this bliss. If you
learn to look upon people, animate beings and even inanimate objects as a
manifestation of this consciousness, then you will experience bliss, happiness
and abundance in all of your activities and throughout your whole life.
3. The greatest wealth is human wealth, learn to perfect it: When we talk about
countries we sometimes make the mistake of thinking that their wealth comes from
natural resources like gold, oil, minerals, etc. While natural resources are
important, what really makes a country rich is its human wealth. When people
become educated they can produce more. The same goes for individuals. You don't
need to inherit one million dollars to be wealthy. Perfect your own skills,
"mine" your inner resources, develop your own human wealth and you will be able
to achieve your goals.
4. Physical Wealth is Transitory, go for something that is everlasting: While
there is nothing wrong with getting physical the things that are necessary for
your well being, you should never forget that you cannot hold on to any physical
object. One day you are destined to be separated from these objects. While
adjusting to the needs of the world, set your sites on the spiritual wealth that
5. The universe has enough for all, learn how to share he world's wealth with
others: Right now people are competing with each in a win- lose battle for the
wealth of the world. Once you realize that there is enough for everyone, make
efforts to ease the burdens of others. The best way to get beyond the limits of
your ego is to serve others without any selfish motive. In the process you will
find true happiness and make one step towards a world where all can share the
abundance of this universe.
Try these five steps, it may help to change your life.
