Prosperity

“When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous.” -Wayne Dyer Prosperity

Wayne Walter Dyer is an American self-help advocate, author and lecturer. His 1976 book Your Erroneous Zones is said to have “brought humanist ideas to the masses”.

Chances are pretty good that if I asked a room of people to tell me the first thing that comes to mind when I say Prosperity, the vast majority would say material wealth. That certainly is one kind of prosperity and has been described by some as the most important.

I do not agree and I suspect that many of you reading this would tend to agree with me. I have a healthy respect for money and enjoy the freedoms of choice that it provides me, but I also know that were I to have less or none for that matter, I would still be prosperous as I would have me, my friends, family, faith and hope.

As a Rabbi in Recovery, my prosperity is driven by my faith and service to others. I consider myself the most prosperous because you bless me with your loyal readership; you attend my holiday services, email me with your comments and call with your questions. No money has changed hands and I am prosperous because of what “we” exchange with each other.

My prayer for you today is that you find your prosperity inside your heart, mind and soul, share it with others and I believe your bank account will take care of itself.

Hugs and Blessings,
Rabbi Mitch
