Many folks believe that money is just money. Right? Maybe there’s more to this belief than meets the eye… I am eager to present to you this extraordinary Ted Talk by Lynne Twist, global activist and author of the life-changing book, ‘Soul of Money’.
My take-aways from Lynne’s profound book are:
- To adopt an ‘enough’ attitude. So much of my life has been driven by not enough. From the time I awaken: ‘not enough sleep, not enough time, not enough money.’ These unconscious beliefs lay the groundwork for high-level stress and anxiety, along with attracting more ‘not enough’ in my life. I’m gaining freedom by examining my ‘not enough’s’ and changing them to gratitude for ‘always enough’ no matter what appearances may look like at the time.
- To refrain from labeling folks as ‘poor’. While there are many folks who live in substandard circumstances, these conditions have taught people to be strong and resilient, faith-filled and trusting. Labeling folks ‘poor’ is demeaning to them and to me.
- As a global fund raiser, Ms. Twist has worked with the very wealthy. She explains how loneliness, isolation and ‘soullessness’ along with intense feeling of ‘not enough’ is often acutely experienced by this class of folks too. This was stunning to me. I must admit that it is a challenge for me to include this population in my compassionate thoughts. I’m not there yet—but I’m working on it. Great insight!
In the video below, Lynne recounts an amazing story about how the negative energy of a particularly challenging monetary meeting inspired her to take courageous action; action that was in alignment with her higher self. This is one of the most powerful stories I have ever heard. You might want to pass it along.
