“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has conceived the things that God has prepared for those who love Him.”
—1 Corinthians 2:9
The truth is in the knowing that there’s nothing that we perceive outside of ourselves—our wealth, material possessions, status, etc.—that will fill that hole except for the peace of God. Many never understand that this is, in fact, the actual problem.
Within this book we are appreciating the truth of the great wisdom teachers we spoke about in our previous chapters. Again, we’re not focusing just on the dogma of these religions, rather the spirituality or the actual experience of the truth within the Self, which we can call Atman, Christ consciousness, the Buddha nature, the Tao or the True Self. Words cannot really do this justice. Once we experience it, many can’t even describe it. Ramana Maharshi sat for two years in silence incapable of speaking after his dip in “The Ocean.” We just know it’s a union with our Source. A coming home to what we are and where we are from. It is the true Yoga of Wealth. No amount of materialism, external quests or worldly seeking can fulfill us. What our souls are really longing for is God. Only God can satisfy our human cravings.
“Jesus answered and said to her, ‘Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.’”
