How can Money be my friend

13. We found the best way to have money be your friend is to get rid of it as soon as it gets close to you. Keep an umbrella of light on you at all times.

Money stacked too high will make it so you cry. Money stands for separation. All of our dis-unity and separation can be tied to money. Money is your friend when you use it for good and you never let it stack too high and then you will never cry. Money spells Monkey very easily and monkey translates to My Key .

Your life will turn around instantly

MON means Mine or My – EY means Energy of “Y” (fork tongue, Arrogant Man, separation). It is an example, as all things are, of the format of Humans, the Earth and all we make.

Flip it for yourself. Use money to join people together. For important projects. To help those in need. Your life will turn around instantly.

Mr Stanley Burrell

Want to see someone reject such seductions? Read about Mr Stanley Burrell: Forbes Magazine estimated Hammer’s net worth at more than $33 million in 1991. But, just five years later, Hammer—born Stanley Burrell—was reportedly in debt to the tune of $13 million. Hammer filed for bankruptcy in 1996, but today, he says his debt wasn’t a matter of losing his head. “No, I lost my heart,” he says. “I didn’t just take the money and say, ‘I want to be a blessing to myself.’ I took my money and employed 200 people in my community. I had a payroll of a million dollars a month at times.” Hammer says he’s in a good place now.”

“…if I change one thing, everything else changes..

“Some people ask me sometimes, would I go back and change things?” he says. “They are flabbergasted by my answer. My real, true answer is I wouldn’t change one thing. I really believe in the butterfly effect. Meaning that if I change one thing, everything else changes. I lose the kids I have now. I lose the relationships I have now. I lose the peace I have now. So I’m very happy with my decision.”

Is he a happy guy then and now? Prince let Stanley mix his music, the only artist to mix Prince music.

O man, do not cry for the sake of money. Think of the state of this impermanent body and cry. That will benefit you.

Bawa No. 454 The Golden Words

More from Bawa, No 454 The Golden Words of a Sufi Sheikh – A man with money trouble comes to the Guru for help, here is the story:

A man with money

“From the time I was about three years old, I have wanted to rule the whole world and keep it in my hand under the umbrella of my rule. This has been my intention. I think about it so much that I cannot fall asleep at night.

“I have asked everyone in the world I could think of: swamis, yogis, deities, and people who perform miracles. None of them was able to grant my boon or give me peace of mind

“‘Study this mantra, study that mantra! Recite this verse, recite that verse!’ they said. They gave me hundreds of thousands of mantras and verses. I read them all, I recited mantra upon mantra and verse upon verse. I performed rituals, but I had no success.

I have not made any progress through all this. In fact, it seems like the reverse.“I have come to you as a last resort. You must grant me the might to rule the world. I have not benefited from anyone else, nor has anyone even answered me properly.”

The Sufi replied, “Is that so? Very good, little brother, let me tell you a story. Will you listen?”

“Yes, I will.”A guru had a disciple whose intention was to learn to control a jinn. So the guru taught him a jinn mantra which he studied assiduously.

One day he came eagerly to the guru.“Swami, I have learned it. I know the mantra now. I know it well. Please give me permission to make it work so I can get everything I want.”

“You are not ready,” the guru told him. “You are not yet mature. It is not wise for you to use it before you are ready. You must wait for the proper time.”

The benefit and the loss are your responsibility

The disciple was impatient. “I have learned it. I am ready, I know the mantra, I know it.” He badgered the guru constantly. “I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready.”The guru could not take this constant heckling and finally said, “Do you really think you are ready? It doesn’t seem so to me, but if you want to, go ahead. The benefit and the loss are your responsibility.” The guru gave him the ability to call forth the jinn.

The disciple recited the mantra and the jinn appeared.“Why did you call me? What do you want?” the jinn shouted.“You must do what I say,” commanded the disciple.“All right, what must be done?” asked the jinn.

“I want a palace larger than that of the king, a palace made of all the kinds of gold and jewels in the world.” Within a second, the palace appeared.“What should I do now?” asked the jinn.“I want the palace equipped with dishes, pots, cups, bowls, and utensils made of gold.” That, too, was ready in a second.“What do you want now?” the jinn demanded.

“You must bring me all the nicest furnishings in the world and fill the palace.” Instantly, the palace was filled.“Now what?” the jinn said in a booming voice.“I want a girl more beautiful than the most beautiful princess in the world.”
The jinn brought her instantly.“Now what must I do?” thundered the jinn.“I think I have everything I need, now. There is no more work for you.”“But I need work. If you don’t give me work, I will have to kill you!”The disciple thought hard. In desperation, he tried to think of the most difficult task possible.

Finally he stammered, “The ruby from the mouth of a cobra. Bring me the ruby from the mouth of a cobra!”As soon as the jinn disappeared, the disciple ran to the guru.“O guru, what shall I do? If I don’t give him work every second, he will kill me. I have everything I want and I don’t know what else to tell him to do. Aiyö, my guru, what shall I do? What is my fate? Please save me!”“I told you you were not ready,” the guru said. “I told you before, but you insisted you were ready. Well, go and give him some work. Keep him busy.”

There is nothing I lack

“Aiyö! Everything I need has been supplied—a wife, a palace, lands, countries. I have everything; there is nothing I lack. I finally sent him to bring the jewel from the mouth of the cobra, but even that will take him no more than a second to complete. He is going to kill me as soon as he comes back. Save me, O guru.

“I warned you. I told you that you were not ready. What do you expect me to do?” the guru said. “Just as it takes only a few minutes to make money and gather possessions, it also takes only a few minutes for your life to end.

You need maturity to realize this. I told you that you could get whatever you wanted in an instant, but also that the things you get can kill you in an instant. But you didn’t listen to me.You insisted you were ready, so I had to tell you to go ahead.”Suddenly, the jinn appeared with the gem. “Give me work!” he boomed, towering over the disciple.The disciple quaked in fear, clutching the feet of the guru. The guru turned to the jinn. “Wait a little,” he said.

Then he addressed the disciple. “I told you then that you were not ready, and now you come and hang on to my feet. I told you I would let you know when you were mature. You should have held on to my feet then, but you left. What is to be done? Now let us see what we can do to get rid of him.”Just at that moment, a dog with a curly tail happened by, and the guru whispered, “Tell the jinn to straighten the tail of that dog.”Timidly, the disciple gave the order to the jinn. The jinn straightened the tail, but as soon as he let go it sprang right back.

Again the jinn pulled it straight, this time with both hands, but the dog’s tail curled back as soon as he released his grasp. Over and over again, the jinn tried to straighten the tail. He tried and he tried, but the tail kept curling.
There was nothing he could do, so he ran away in shame.“Ruling the world is like the story I just told you,” continued the Sufi sheikh. “Did you understand, little brother? You can rule the whole world in an instant, you can get everything you ask for in an instant, but it can also kill you in an instant. Think of this a little and give up this desire. The world outside is a small point, as small as an atom. But the world inside your mind is huge. If you rule that inner world called the mind, you will be the king of the eighteen thousand universes within you.

If you rule that inner world called the mind, you will be the king of the 18,000 universes within you.

If you can control and rule all the subjects within your mind, all the demons and desires, mäyä and arrogance, you can rule everything, not only the world you see outside, but also the eighteen thousand universes within.

“Go, and live in peace.”
