The millionaire’s way

There is nothing wrong in aspiring to be a millionaire and yet be a spiritualist? There is no contradiction between the two as they are complementary.

A recent statement by a millionaire-spiritualist in Melbourne backs up this stand. It was asserted that it was much easier to be a spiritualist for a millionaire than for a non-millionaire.

No doubt, one can contest it, but I find a lot of “acquired, worldly wisdom” in this statement.

The argument is quite simple: If you are a millionaire and have the heart and the mind to be a spiritualist, you can do much better service in society with your millions. And not that only: A millionaire who gives away his millions gets back by way of “returns” in multiples!

Nothing goes waste and the millions one gives away in charity for useful causes works like a seed that sprouts and gives back “in plenty”. So, the argument runs, the more you give away, the more you get back.

The millionaire-spiritualist in question is one Pat Mesiti who became a spiritualist the “millions way”. He enlists four steps for becoming a millionaire-spiritualist. The first and the foremost step is that such a person should remove attachment to money out of his heart.

Once that is done, one should get “educated” on how money works for spiritual purposes.

Secondly, one should get around the right kind of people as “their association in life will equal their assimilations in life”.

Thirdly, you must be looking around all the time for advice from people who are already in this noble work.

Finally, one should introspect and work on one’s self. Your attitude and belief system should get attuned to the goal you are working for. That makes your task easier and one can get immense satisfaction too. That itself is greater than being a millionaire.

One must also have this question all the time on one’s mind,” After all, what is money for? If giving is investment for multiple returns, can there be a better option?”
