The Current Global Financial Crisis

You may think it strange for a "spiritual" website to speak of issues such as the current global financial markets and the ensuing crisis but in reality there is no separation between spirit and everything else: there is one whole. All is related because all is interconnected.
The current financial crisis is easily seen in a wider perspective. As you know the real "You" is the silent presence watching through your eyes, listening through your ears and evolving "back" into a universal consciousness with a realization that we are all one.
As consciousness (God) evolves through us in our individual lives, we eventually need to let go all of our personal identities or the things we have "thought" of as being ours: wealth, status, relationships, knowledge, even our very thoughts to find the core of who we really are. As any spiritual journey commands: a letting go to what is here and now and not what we have wanted or thought we wanted in order to find the ultimate answer.
In the modern world, money and wealth has been one of the major identities that we have placed on ourselves; one which the ego (our little sense of being an individual lone entity) has fed from : "I have more than you, but not as much as he/she!"
This forms a boundary of differentiation around us and is the major factor splitting the rich from the poverty stricken. Spirit, the pure silence of now within, is being realized by more and more people and this positive quickening is now affecting the masses. Human made concepts like religion, ideology and economies will pass away and in their place sharing, honesty, compassion and friendship will stand.
So, as the stock markets slide and everyone predicts doom and gloom, find that sacred space inside you that is watching all of this, the space that never changes, that has never changed. You are this space of silent presence and that is the same in every human being. Open your eyes to see what is really near to you this moment: your family, your spouse, your friends, your co-workers. They are closer to who you are than any financial market!
You are not your money, your assets, your debts. Economies will come and go. The presence within you is eternal!

  9. I fully agree with you sir. today man has become more materialistic. He has forgotten the real purpose for which God has given him this life. the basic thing is that today man is not afraid of God. I had written an article on the same theme and the same was published in the newspaper - 'Punjabi Tribune' on October 13, 2008 entitled 'Koi Dekh Reha Hai'. You can view it on my blog : www.harneetsingh.blog.co.in

    very well

  11. A well-worded statement: "You are not your money, your assets, your debts. Economies will come and go. The presence within you is eternal! "
    But we are so engrossed with our materialistic pursuits that as Wordsworth has put it: "The world is too much with us, getting and spending we lay waste our powers."

  12. Truthful words:
    "The world is too much with us, getting and spending we lay waste our powers."
    Wordsworth is absolutely right.
    Thanks Amritbir Kaur Ji, for adding your insights to my post making it more meaningful.

  13. Thank you so much for writing this post. So often people value money and things more then themselves. So many have been freaking out deciding how this economic situation will effect them. What we really need to look at is what it is trying to tell us about ourselves as a world community. The outer always reflects the inner. Unfortunately it often takes catastrophic events for people to wake up. But through hardship is our greatest opportunity to grow.
