For the Spiritual Investor
Spiritual leaders from all traditions say that for spiritual progress we
must earn our income from activities that are deemed 'life-benefiting,'
and perhaps even more importantly, that we gain higher spiritual
Gaining heightened spiritual consciousness is the most powerful 'tool'
we have to foresee developments in this dawning era. It expands our
consciousness, provides greater comprehensiveness of thinking and more
peace of mind -- which behavioral researchers say is the most important
trait for successful investing. It also brings us inner bliss and the
ability to be closer to God. Such experiences are critical for our
investing success, especially at this time.
The following spiritual sayings and quotes from spiritual leaders illustrate these points.
“God is not
mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
The Epistle of Paul the Apostle
“Seek ye first
the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things
shall be added unto you.”
Oxford Dictionary of Quotations,
p.89, 1992 New Edition.
St. Augustine. “Happiness consists
in the attainment of our desires, and in having only right desires.”
Apostle Paul. “The wages of sin is
death; but the gift of God is eternal life.” The
Epistle of Paul the Apostle of the Romans 6:23, Bartlett's
Familiar Quotations, p. 41.
"If as in a dream, you see a light brighter than the sun, your
remaining attachments will suddenly come to an end and the nature of
reality will be revealed. Such an occurrence serves as the basis of
enlightenment. But this is something only you know. You can't
explain it to others."
Mysticism in World Religions,
Shankara. "A man is said to be free
even in this life when he is established in illumination. His Bliss
is unending. For him the sorrows of this world are over. Though he
possesses a finite body, he remains united with the infinite."
Shankara's Crest Jewel of Illumination
translated by Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood, p. 105
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. "With the practice of deep meditation
(Transcendental Meditation) the mind contacts the Bliss
Consciousness of the Spirit and becomes more peaceful, happy,
creative and powerful. This state of mind enriches all values of
material life." Meditations of Maharishi Mahesh
Yogi, Bantum p. 164/5
