Leadership Council Perspective-Sharon Nelson, RScP


We are once again in the middle of the Holiday Season.  Tommy Osborne and I spent Thanksgiving in Cleveland and Virginia with friends and family.  The 11 days were rich with experiences of all forms and descriptions.

A particularly inspiring time was spent with a young couple in their 20’s.  They are already successful business people, each with an individual net worth in the millions.  Spiritually grounded, their wealth is a result of their successful conscious direction of thought with their subconscious belief regarding supply.  They live the passage from Matthew 25:29: “For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance.  Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.”  They achieved wealth because their inner thought lives attracted money and this attractive quality that drew it to them in the first place continues to bring more.  They are on their way to billionaire status.

Yet even more significant is their mindset about wealth/money/supply.  They are technology entrepreneurs and have aligned themselves with like-minded people who are shaping the world in ways that closely parallel our global vision of A World That Works for Everyone. 

They are building a community of people who are redefining the meaning of “billionaire.”  A billionaire means you have a billion dollars. Right?  According to Jason Silva (see Captains of Spaceship Earth), that definition is evolving.

“The new definition of billionaire is someone who will positively affect the lives of a billion people.”

The new billionaire gives rather than takes.  But forget numbers.  If each of us just does our best to become rich, not in dollars but in positive impacts, the ledgers will crumble to dust as wealth begins to be measured by gives rather than takes.  Each of us will become billionaires with expansive riches of heart in all areas of life; relationships, livelihood, health, opportunities, creativity, finances, growth.

Like so many spiritual leaders have said throughout time, love is the answer—the simple answer—that solves everything.  In Science of Mind, the Laws and Principles are taught, we must each take them into our hearts, and with calm expectancy, move as Spirit leads.  John 14:12: “Verily, verily, I say to you, He that believes on me, the works which I do shall he do also, and he shall do greater than these, because I go to the Father.”  

Many blessings.  Namasté
