A blog about Inner Happiness, Consciousness and Freedom!
"What can I tell you about happiness that you don’t already know at the very core of your being?  You may have ‘forgotten’ perhaps, as I have.  But let’s remember, together.  Let's return to the original Self we long for - that Self that is forever at peace, forever joyous, limitless, powerful, abundant and free!  And as we do, let's become Conscious Creators, Bold Adventurers, creatively exploring infinite possibilities as we flow in this enchanting journey we casually call Life!"

What does Money have to do with Power and Inner Happiness?

My wife and I keep fighting about sex and money. I think she charges me too much, you know – Rodney Dangerfield

Money is an expression of abundance and abundance is a state of ease and wellbeing.  And since any good feeling state is a state of power, abundance is also a state of power

Money, therefore, is an expression of the state of power.  But there’s a lot of misunderstanding about power.

True power is not something that can be used against someone else because true power comes out of love.

When money becomes a means of control over others, which happens when we act out of fear, then money becomes an expression of fear rather than of power and love.

Many people, myself included, have grown up with unhealthy attitudes around money because we have observed and experienced the use of money as a means of control and an expression of fear (even if we may have mistaken it for power), rather than an expression of abundance, power and love.

So, what is power if it is not over someone or something else?

Power expresses itself in a variety of ways – through self-confidence, conviction, determination, perseverance, acceptance, openness, inner happiness, freedom and adventure!

When we understand that this is how true power, which comes from love, is expressed, then we’ll stop being afraid of holding and expressing power.

Neither will we be afraid of people whom we have thought to have great power over us or others.  They don’t have power.  What they have is fear, which ironically, is the ignorance or unawareness of their true power!

It is only natural that achieving inner happiness involves shifting towards greater levels of power – not ‘power over’ (which is fear) but power within!

What kind of power fear struggles does your relationship express?

You can change that right now by taking the time to tune into your inner happiness and the power that comes with it

Love always

  • Hi,
    Interesting thoughts! I believe it’s not possible to make a general statement on whether money makes people more or less happy.

    Money comes with a whole set of new elements that may have good or bad impact on our happiness, and depending on how susceptible we are to every one of them, the conclusion will go one way or the other (i.e. different from person to person). I recently made an effort to provide a more comprehensive picture of what these ad- and disadvantages are. I invite you to have a
    look at Money and Happiness and tell me what you think!

    Thank you, Nick
