People often think that I’m independently wealthy, that I have a trust fund or some endless supply of cash. I used to defend myself: “I get my money the old fashioned way—I earn it!” I would insist. Then one day I asked myself, “Why am I defending the notion of hard work?” Of course I’m independently wealthy. My money—all my sustenance—comes from the Divine Source. Even better, I am it. I am a cell in the great body of the Creator, and the creator is all wealth, all love, all sustenance, so what does that make me? Independently wealthy.
With this truth comes great responsibility. No longer can I say that I have to work at this job or do that project. I’m here to spread this beautiful love and wealth that I am, so my responsibility is to do that in the best way I can. And that way is whatever brings me the most joy, whatever allows me to stay most connected to my source.
