You give your tithe as a spiritual duty, the same way you breathe. When you give without looking for results, you are giving openly. That giving is rewarded secretly. That secret rewarding may come as a flash of insight into the heart of God.

At Ease

Tithing is a way of saying, “God, pour forth whatever blessing You have for me.”

God is health, or lack of disease.

God is always at ease, always present, always now, and is constantly creating and expanding.


(From God Is Your Partner by John-Roger, DSS)

My favorite joke of all time is about three Jews boasting about their rabbis. One claims his rabbi is so devout and fearful of the Lord he trembles night and day, and has to be strapped to the bed so that he doesn't fall out.

The second claims his rabbi is so holy and close to God that God trembles and is afraid of displeasing the rabbi.

The third says his rabbi went through both those stages. First the rabbi used to tremble, then it got to the point where God trembled. But then the rabbi thought it over and said to God, "Look, why should we both tremble?"

I think of that joke when I read J-R's profound quote above. If "God is always at ease, always present, always now," why should I tremble? Why don't I jump on the bandwagon and be at ease?

In fact, I think I will. Now.

Here is one of the reasons I think that the economic recovery is going to take a long time. Financial Quote-of-the-Day from columnist and financial commentator Stephen Roach:

Put it together and it all smacks of a dangerous sense of déjà vu: promoting a false recovery by kick-starting overextended, saving-short American consumers to borrow once again by leveraging their major asset.

Fortunately, the American consumer is smarter than the quick-fix Washington mindset. Shell-shocked families -- especially some 77 million baby boomers for whom retirement planning is an urgent imperative -- know they have no choice other than to save.

It's In Your Hands

If I could really get you to understand that you are the source individually of all things around you, you would have the knowledge necessary for your life to come abundantly to you. When you go out there in the world to 'get' things, you are operating from lack. You are saying, 'I don't have this within me, so I have to find someone to give it to me.' If you could know that you are the source, you would not operate from lack. You would be manifesting your natural abundance, and the presence of Spirit would be with you.

A Crisis of Values

An MSIA staff member approached me the other day and said that reading this bog had made them scared to spend money. They had wanted to go to a Judy Collins concert but didn’t want to part with the $40 ticket price.

I was both proud and horrified. Proud that they were carefully evaluating where to spend their money and not acting on impulse. Horrified that they were scared of spending money.

So let me clarify. This blog has followed three main themes:

1) Yes, we are in a financial crisis but that following the principles of abundance and prosperity, also known as being a Joyful Giver, puts us on a Grace track as opposed to a struggle track. We are watchful, alert, and relaxed.

2) That deciding what your values are is a critical piece of the puzzle, for that will guide you on your actions and spending your money.

3) There is never a reason to live in lack because there is endless supply.

I do believe that the reason this economy is in such trouble is that the foundation on which it has been built over the last 25 years has been dishonesty and greed. In other words--no foundation at all. It had to fail. Dishonesty and greed are not values for sustained growth and expansion.

Please read this excellent interview with best-selling author Jim Collins in Fortune Magazine. Excerpt:

So what did these companies do to get through the tough times?

A couple of things really jump out. No. 1, in times of great duress, tumult, and uncertainty, you have to have moorings. Companies like P&G, GE, J&J, and IBM had an incredible fabric of values, of underlying ideals or principles that explained why it was important that they existed. One of the things that was very distinctive about P&G, for example, was that they said a customer will always be able to depend on the fact that a product is what we say it is - we will always build our reputation on quality. When they were under pressure to start cutting corners or use cheaper ingredients, they just didn't do that. What we have found is that what really matters is that you actually have core values - not what they are. The more challenged you are, the more you have to have your values. You need to preserve them consistently over time.

Christmas Arrives in San Francisco

The recommendation for warriors is not to have any material things on which to focus their power, but to focus it on the spirit, on the true flight into the unknown, not on trivialities.

Everyone who wants to follow the warrior’s path has to rid himself of the compulsion to possess and hold onto things.


---Don Juan via Carlos Casteneda

*

Did a booksigning in San Francisco this evening (The Rest of Your Life) with John Morton (You Are the Blessing) and Jsu Garcia (Spiritual Warriors movie dvd). J-R showed up and shared and then took Q&A. He was in fine form. What a blessing for us all! It’s Christmas.

The financial news has gone from crazy, to mad, to stark raving bonkers. Hopefully, you are all prepared for the worst, hoping for the best, and shooting right down the middle. I keep coming back to J-R’s quote: "Listen, there is endless supply. Once you understand that, you are on your way to a much higher level of freedom."

I started the blog with that quote and even though the outer world speaks of recessions, and deflation, and depression, the inner world says there is no lack, and there is endless supply. So we continue to tithe and acknowledge God as our supply. Above all we don’t enter into fear or panic. We do our best to remain open and grateful seeing opportunity everywhere, and seeding for those opportunities that resonate for us.

It really is a blessed time. Let’s enjoy this holiday season and focus on our gratitude and the sacredness.

In Harmony With Infinite Supply

The following quote is from Timeless Wisdoms by J-R. Please read it and keep it close by you. There are so many keys here to living the spiritual principles of abundance and prosperity. Every time you read or hear anything negative about the economy or environment, instead of being caught up in what is being said, perhaps you can read this quote.

Ultimately, you can’t do anything “wrong,” because God is with you, in you as you, and is making sure that it all comes out perfectly. And that is a lot to be thankful for.

An attitude of gratitude is also a key to being in harmony with infinite supply. When you can honestly and truly thank God for what you have, for all your experiences, for all the people in your life, and for all your expressions, the sense of gratitude goes very deep. In that depth, you are open to infinite supply.

You also might think about being grateful when your desires are not being fulfilled. You might think about being grateful when your prayers are not being answered. Let those desires and prayers go, and ask only for the highest good, that you might be free of the creation of desire, that you might be free from illusion, that you might be free to know your own Soul and its perfection and glory.

Sometimes the best way to make the most out of a situation is to get out of it. The other way is to accept it and be grateful that it isn’t worse. I find that it’s much easier to just love it all. When it shows up, I go, “Wow. Another form of loving. Another face of loving. Another expression of loving. Another location of loving.” And then I get to participate in it. That’s grateful.

As you accept what you have and give thanks for your blessings, you find your life becoming happier and happier. Because, truly, my friends, you are blessed. There is not one of you who is not continually receiving of God’s infinite blessings and grace.

Endless Supply Revisited

Listen, there is endless supply. Once you understand that, you are on your way to a much higher level of freedom.

John-Roger, DSS

I started this blog on July 4, 2008 and the above quote started that post.

I wrote:

Scarcity is one of the great illusions of the planet and we are certainly hearing a lot about it these days. Scarcity of food, scarcity of oil, it goes on and on. That's why I love to re-look at J-R's quote above and take it in. In many ways it is an affirmation to me. Instead of placing the blame or focus "out there," I read the quote and the responsibility is clearly on me to put aside any feelings of lack and connect with the "endless supply."

The greatest key in my armory is gratitude. And I also know that I can go to a more expansive, and deeper level within me. One that requires more openness, and a greater ability to receive, and perhaps a little more use of the divine imagination.


As we hear and read a lot about this being a period of outer contraction, in spending, in employment, in the economy--there is absolutely no reason for us “joyful givers” to contract inwardly. We have all the tools at our disposal to live an abundant, expansive, happy, and full life. And that starts with God being our Partner and realizing that the supply from that Source is endless.

A recent post from a Psychology Today blog says it all to me: “after all, in many cases happiness lies in being satisfied with your own lot.”

And with God as our Partner, we have every reason to be happy.

Getting Ready (Part One)

The Soul will evolve and grow, even in the most adverse situations. I've evolved more in adversity than I ever did out of blissful love.

(From Forgiveness, The Key to the Kingdom by John-Roger, DSS) And thanks to Lisa Boone’s Daily Heart-Thought LISA BOONE moonbeamboone@yahoo.com

Everything has its season, and every season prepares for the next. Looking on a winter landscape, everything appears dead, yet more is going on. Winter is a resting point, a time of inner transformation. As author Edna O’Brien puts it, “In a way winter is the real spring, the time when the inner things happen, the resurge of nature.”

We as humans have our cycles, too. Many years ago J-R suggested we follow and track our Biorhythms, our emotional, mental, and physical cycles, as a way of understanding ourselves. I have found looking at seven-year cycles very helpful. If you look at your life at 7 years-old, 14, 21, 28, etc., you will undoubtedly notice that these were times of major change in your life. We need not feel ourselves a victim to the cycles of change anymore than nature would see itself as a victim of winter.

Economies too have their cycles from an expansionary phases to recessionary ones. A recession is a temporary period of economic contraction, where trade and industrial activity are reduced and consequently higher unemployment arises. It looks like that we are coming upon the recessionary phase. Some would say we have been in it for a few months.

That means we need to get through this period as best we can and prepare for the next expansionary phase. Warren Buffett, arguably one of the greatest financial minds ever, thinks this recession is going to be “long and deep.” What does that mean for the dedicated followers of this blog? The answer is at two levels, the inner and the outer.

The inner says there is no lack, and there is endless supply. We continue to tithe and acknowledge God as our supply. Above all we don’t enter into fear or panic. We remain open and grateful seeing opportunity everywhere, and seeding for those opportunities that resonate for us.

One of the most gratifying things for me has been reading your comments and seeing what a source of strength tithing is for you in these times. In addition, we always have our Traveler inspiration to fall back on. “If you want to know God, you tithe.” John-Roger said that. “I tithe, therefore I know God.” John Morton said that. I don’t think it gets more specific and clearer than that.

The outer says we need to use our common sense. We have all the spiritual support we need, now we need to apply our 10 percent level responsibility in a conscious and wise way.

More tomorrow.

Bit and Piece

Last Sunday's post on "The Silent Saints" inspired Marjorie to share this six minute piece winner of the Cannes 2008 Short Film Online Competition. Definitely a heart warmer.

There is Endless Supply

"Listen, there is endless supply. Once you understand that, you are on your way to a much higher level of freedom." John-Roger

Welcome to Lord Tithington's daily blog on the Spiritual Principles of Abundance and Prosperity. I look forward to exploring in depth with you the richness of John-Roger's teachings and John Morton's contribution to this constantly interesting and challenging subject.

Your input and sharings and comments are an essential component to making this blog "alive."

Scarcity is one of the great illusions of the planet and we are certainly hearing a lot about it these days. Scarcity of food, scarcity of oil, it goes on and on. That's why I love to re-look at J-R's quote above and take it in. In many ways it is an affirmation to me. Instead of placing the blame or focus "out there," I read the quote and the responsibility is clearly on me to put aside any feelings of lack and connect with the "endless supply."

The greatest key in my armory is gratitude. And I also know that I can go to a more expansive, and deeper level within me. One that requires more openness, and a greater ability to receive, and perhaps a little more use of the divine imagination. More about the latter in future posts.
