Money & Spirituality : a myth of separation

UnknownMoney and Spirituality both touch upon the human experience deeply; and the closer you look, the more you see that there are many similar concepts between the two.

However, the love-hate relationship we have with money leads to a seemingly insurmountable dichotomy in which thoughts of money may produce feelings of angst and anxiety vs transcendence and peace.

Because of our potentially mixed feelings surrounding money, we may have the tendency to separate our thoughts about it from the rest of our lives and especially from our views, philosophy and approach to spirituality. When this happens, we compartmentalize our life and divide different aspects of ourselves.

Why is it so natural to create boundaries separating our secular (that which is worldly and temporal) from our spiritual and religious beliefs? James Hillman, the psychologist and author, observes that human history is a series of images, dreams, tales, geographies, stories, figures, and lessons learned, not historical fact but imaginative thinking. He concludes that we live with a world view consisting of myths. We have created a whole series of myths that surround our financial lives. These social conventions limit our view of ourselves and our relationship with money. This division we create between our secular and religious lives creates a potential battle line. How can we deal with this internal conflict?

Our financial and spiritual lives are intertwined and separating them is an illusion. The distinctions we draw between our tangible earthly desires and our intangible spiritual needs are really stories; myths that we have accepted. If we look closely, we will see many fundamental connections between the two. Our destiny is to accumulate the lessons learned, to retell these stories and then make our own changes and twists.

In this way, our illusions and myths separating financial and spiritual thought will disintegrate because the divisions never really existed in the first place. If we fail to connect the two, we compartmentalize ourselves and our lives. We become two separate identities instead of one unified being.

The interconnectedness of our outward actions and our inward evolution must be realized before we truly can live a powerfully balanced, whole life.

If we are to be truly successful at living, we must be genuine and consistent in our beliefs about finances, money and spirituality.

—Edited from review of James Hillman on Spiritual Finance

Two questions to consider:

  • Do you have beliefs of your own that create a conflict between money and spirituality?
  • If there is conflict, is it real or imagined, and if real, is it resolvable?

7 Business Plan Mistakes

1. Misunderstanding the purpose: it’s the planning journey that matters, not just the document Planning is a process of setting goals and establishing specific measures of progress, then tracking your progress and following up with course corrections. The plan itself is just the first step; it is reviewed and revised often. Don’t even print it unless you absolutely have to. Leave it on a digital network instead.

2. Doing it in one big push: do it in pieces and steps The plan is a set of connected modules, like blocks. Start anywhere and get going. Do the part that interests you most, or the part that provides the most immediate benefit. That might be strategy, concepts, target markets, business offerings, projections, mantra, vision, whatever. . . just get going.

3. Finishing your plan: your plan is living If your plan is done, then your business is done. That most recent version is just a snapshot of what the plan was then. It should always be alive and changing to reflect changing assumptions & feedback from all levels of your environment.

4. Hiding your plan: be transparent as possible Use common sense about what details you share, keeping some information, such as individual salaries, confidential. But do share the vision, goals and measurements, using the planning to build team spirit, peer collaboration and ventures.

5. Confusing cash with profits: understand both There’s a huge difference between the two. Profits are an accounting concept; cash is money in the bank. You don’t pay your bills with profits. Make sure you take the time to forecast realistically  – this usually means you will have to take the time to throughly understand expenses, cash and profits.

6. Diluting your priorities: pick a few and complete them A plan that stresses three or four priorities is a plan with focus and power. People can understand three or four main points. A plan that lists 20 priorities doesn’t really have any.

7. Sweating the details : having a strategy does not mean you don’t have faith Details are important, especially in the beginning, but remember that your plan is fundamentally an invitation to the universe to play with you. Make it a priority to take the time to breath deeply, meditate and connect with your inner strength & guidance. This will allow you to not get caught up in anxiety & control.

Floating, Flooding, Ever-Budding

Once you start the force of planning or implement a phase of an existing plan, fresh forces will come into play to which adjustment has to be made. Whether business starts pouring in, your staff or life partner starts to sabotage, or the economy busts –fresh forces there will be.

The good news is that this is natural. Einstein stated that force never moves in a straight line, but in a curve that eventually returns from where it came and in a higher arc, because the universe has progressed since it started.

You can count on the curve of the force returning –the key to success is counting on the new factors that occur at the higher arc level. Plan on stabilizing and harnessing these factors.

“There is a tide in the affairs of men which taken at the flood leads to fortune.” ~Shakespeare

There is a stage of business informally known as flood –this is when everything starts to work and comes together –the arc of your planning returns. It can seem overwhelming because with the flood comes debris –the new factors.

You can float when you routinely plan to revisit your key business success factors and proactively stabilize them. Incorporating a holistic system of measurement and communication will help to navigate the flood and turn debris into assets.

Keep forcefully planning!

Every phase of evolution commences by being in a state of unstable force and proceeds through organization to equilibrium. Equilibrium having been achieved, no further development is possible without once more oversetting the stability and passing though a phase of contending forces. As a friend of mine once said, it is about “floating, flooding, and ever-budding”.  Originally posted Love-is-the-Bottom-Line
