Money is not security (SSN)

Ok, here is where a little secret of “Unscribbling” is going to be revealed. If you have not figured it out yet, the book “Unscribbling” is about helping you get to a different consciousness. It is about helping you to think different, to focus on what you desire, instead of your lack. To get you to stay open to ideas. So in the book, for this section, I say for the non-spiritual:

Take-away: Money is not the source of security, but your ability to solve problems (aka Unscribbling) can be. Money is just a resource.

But it is not really your ability to solve problems (aka Unscribbling) that can be a source of security, rather your solution-oriented mindset, your consciousness, and your faith in the Universe.

“The goal should not be to make money or acquire things, but to achieve the consciousness through which the substance will flow forth when you need it.”
– Eric Butterworth, “Spiritual Economics”

Ah, the two pieces of the puzzle:
1. Consciousness
2. Problem Solving

This will help the universe send you solutions. This is security. Not money. Money will fluctuate on you.

“Security can be experienced in one way only – by identifying yourself as a channel for the flow of Infinite Mind.”
– Eric Butterworth, “Spiritual Economics”

Don’t get me wrong; as I mention in the book, I love money – it is so much handier than bartering chickens! But money flows. Concentrating on your consciousness, and problem solving will take you a lot further than letting your security be determined by something external, like money. (Read Where is your mood/worth coming from? (SSN))


“Money is good! Money is God in action!”
– Eric Butterworth, “Spiritual Economics”

But also remember that it flows and fluctuates and should not be the foundation of your security. Basing your security in your solution-oriented mindset, your consciousness, or your faith in the Universe will give you a much more solid foundation.

Takeaway: True security will come when you “achieve the consciousness through which the substance will flow forth when you need it.”

P.S. For the love of Pete, just read “Spiritual Economics” by Erik Butterworth! Especially on this topic!!!

Where is your mood/worth coming from? (SSN)

All too often we use the conditions of our external world to determine how we feel on the inside. But instead of allowing conditions of the outside (gaining the job, or losing it; watching the value of your house fall, or rise; “he likes me,” or he doesn’t) determine our mood and feelings of worth, we need to empower ourselves from the inside out. If we are empowered, fluctuations in our outside world are things we can respond to, instead of things that send us into fits of highs and lows.

For the spiritual take on this:

Thus when Jesus said, “Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgement,” he was saying that if we live in the belief that our experience is totally dependent on what happens to us, we become tentative, cautious, even a little paranoid, and every changing condition has the power to “pull our strings,” to determine how we are going to think or feel or act. For instance, if our basic concerns are financial, then the daily Dow Jones report may well become our personal mood-meter, giving us faith or fear, joy or depression. It is a terrible way to live, yet it is probably true that it is the way most people do live.

However, if you really believe that life is lived from within-out, and if you persistently establish yourself in the consciousness of oneness with divine substance, then your perception of things will reflect an attitude that is “bullish” (optimistic). And, having seen and felt the end, you have willed the means to the realization of the end… for you. And it will work for you, no matter what happens in the world “out there.”

Erik Butterworth, Spiritual Economics

Let your inside world rule the outside, not the other way around.

Takeaway: Determine your mood and feelings of worth from within out, don’t let them fluctuate with the highs and lows of external factors.

Yes, you need to take action! (SSN)

Yes, you can sit by the phone and wait for a call that will solve all your problems, BUT more often than not, the answer to your desires and prayers will come only when you start to take action!

I know some of you Laws of Attraction fans out there are going to blast me for this. And yes, sometimes the solutions just call you up after you have been thinking about them. But think of it this way; each step you take toward your desire is you affirming with the Universe that yes, you do intend to manifest your intention in your life.

So let me blast you with some some of my favorite quotes on this matter.

“God can do no more FOR you then God can do THROUGH you.”
Eric Butterworth, Spiritual Economics

THROUGH YOU! Did you hear that? Things don’t just happen TO you and FOR you, they happen THROUGH you and through your actions, as well as your thoughts.

“That which you are seeking is seeking you.”

Won’t it happen faster if you meet it half way?

“I pray like everything depends on God; then I work as if everything depends on me.”
-George Washington Carver

If you want to write that best seller, build that home, get that degree, etc. you can pray all you want, but you are going to have to work too!

“But more often than not, you have to do something. You actually have to take action. You have to participate in the manifestation process, because it’s a co-creation process. You do something, and the universe… also kicks in and does its part. It’s a joint effort here.”
Joe Vitale, “The Awakening Course”

CO-CREATION!!! Meaning both are making efforts.

“It’s incumbent upon us to physically move in the general direction of our dreams…There cannot be happy accidents, lovely serendipities, or so-called coincidences if we’re just sitting on our couches with a vision board, waiting for Oprah to call!”
Mike Dooley, “Manifesting Change”

This is why we always stay open to other possibilities. Because while you are moving toward your intention, the Universe just might send you a faster route to get there. Pay attention!

“Actions make beautiful prayers.”

This was a post by my friend Raina on her Facebook page. So I am not sure where it came from, but I love it! And what a great way for the spiritual among us to think about it – actions make beautiful prayers, so when you pray, move your ass!

Takeaway: Take action toward achieving your desires.
