Do you enjoy the power of holding wealth or the joy of spending and circulating it?
I tell you frankly, wealth is such an awareness game! Shifting from hoarding wealth to circulating wealth is one of the biggest lessons that I’ve learned about the secrets of wealth creation from Vedic tradition. Essentially, there are two types of attitude towards wealth: 1) Kubera and 2) Lakshmi. Kubera is the deity who is famous for hoarding wealth, all his life he collects and collects; and never thinks of spending the wealth. Like many of us, he carries a kind of neurotic obsession with hoarding inordinate amount of wealth that he is never ever going to spend it. Kubera is the one who enjoys the subtle power that holding wealth can bring, but in the end he neither enjoys the wealth nor allow others to enjoy it. Singapore has been known as the land of Kubera, this is the way I was taught by society – to hoard my wealth due to my insecurity.
This year we witnessed a massive clean-up of the world population with more than 1.54 million deaths were recorded due to the corona virus pandemic as of 5th December 2020. The top three countries like United States, India and Brazil were the worst hit, accounting for almost 40% of the global death tolls. Corona virus had fundamentally changed the way human beings live and their priorities in life!
In May this year, I started conducting weekly online session based on Living Enlightenment book authored by my Guru, HDH Bhagawan Nithyananda Paramashivam. (fondly known as Swamiji) In the last 4 weeks, I was expounding on the chapter about ‘Death is a celebration”.
In the past two and half months, I have been volunteering in a global digital project assigned by my Guru, HDH Bhagavan Nithyananda Paramashivam (fondly known as Swamiji) in preparation for the launch of the world’s first digital nation – ShriKailasa!
To me, this project has been an intense spiritual training ground to evolve each disciple in various dimensions such as leadership consciousness, completion of conflict-resolution, will persistence and mental strength, a real test to one’s nervous system as we undergo the demand of the workload and volunteering for long hours in different time zone.
