What Is Greed?

The word greed  brings to mind a host of images and thoughts in all of us . . . from wanting to eat more than your share of a cake to the underlying cause of wars. Many associate love of money and the lavish lifestyle, which money can buy, with greed, giving it a wicked image. Actually, the love of money isn’t really evil, nor is the love of anything else in and of itself.

          Greed is when the desire for anything blinds you to the wants and needs of others.

Strangely enough, you can substitute the word, addiction, for greed in that definition. If I go into someone’s house I’m not going to steal a beautiful, valuable ornament just because I like looking at it. If I read a book or an article written by another person, whom I admire, that doesn’t mean there is less of that writer’s writing for you to enjoy. The same applies to the love of money. If I love money and have some, that doesn’t make any less for you, unless I steal it from you. The truth about money is that we both can create money by using our abilities, interests, associations with others, experiences, or imagination.

Did you know that if you equate love of money with greed, you thereby subconsciously limit the flow of the universe’s money to you.

How It Works:      Our lives are a product of our thoughts, words, and actions.

So, if you think wanting to have plenty of money is greedy, you think you must be greedy, therefore, a bad person. This thought leads to  feeling guilty, which then evokes your message to the universe not to send you money. Then you wonder why you have too little or no money.         OR

You remember everything in the universe belongs to The Creator and is available for you to use. Abundance flows freely about the universe. Every time you generate righteous effort and get financial remuneration in return, this is an example of how the universe works. Receiving money graciously, with gratitude and passing it on with love, without resentment or ill intent, enables the Universe to function as It is meant to do . . . for good.
