I give because I can.
I use everything I have for the Good of humanity.
I take care of me, so I can take care of others.
What I have belongs to everyone to be used for the Good of all.

(Some money reminders below)

Use All For Good!

When you use your time, money and energy for good, there will always be enough.
When all of us use what we have for Goodness sake, there will be plenty for everyone.
When humanity stops wasting what we have, there will be true prosperity for all.
When we all learn to share what we are given, we will experience abundance on earth.

There is plenty of food and water.
There is plenty of money and wealth.
There is plenty of knowledge and wisdom.
There is plenty of goodness and kindness.

The problem may be where and how it is distributed or withheld.
To share all with all is rarely considered.
To give what we have with those who have not.
To teach our children to share with others may be rare until we care.

Are you willing to employ everyone to give to others?
Are we all willing to generously share with one another?
Is not everyone our sister and brother?
When will we learn to love each other?

The problem may be lack of jobs and education.
The problem may be no way to move to better land and climate.
The problem may be the distribution of wealth and goods available.
The problem may simply be, we are afraid to share with each other.

Are elders sharing their wisdom with the young?
Are parents sharing their chores with their children?
Are friends sharing their rarely use equipment with their neighbors?
Are people caring for the sick, the elderly, the youth and disenfranchised?

When will we learn, the world works when everyone has enough.
When will we learn, we need to stop separating and avoiding others pain,
When will we learn to care for all our heart and mind and soul.
When will we learn to be our brother’s keeper, because we are our brother.

There is no lack when we share with one another.
There is no limitation when we work together for good.
There is no littleness or less than when we love all equally.
There is nothing to lose and everything to gain when we give all Good for all Good for everyone.

Give up unconscious and fearful selfish ways.
Share the best you know- inspirational thoughts, encouraging words and kind deeds.
Contribute what is most valuable and makes a better life.
Offer acts of service and conscious gifts with respect and gratitude.

We can change our world one person and one family at a time.
Love always Love, because Love works!!

Money Reminders
Some tips that have worked for us.

(We have learned through much trial and error.)

The person who has the most interest/energy and most fun gets the job of financial wizard.

Pay yourself first. This means tithe to the source of your Good (you and your inner peace and joy).  

Set aside money before paying bills that goes in an account. In other words, we save first. Then we pay our very minimal bills.

We invest in ourselves and not in a business or home.

We cut back on expenses so that there is money.  

We tithe in time and energy as well as money.  

Right now we live on less than 50% of our income.

It is never too late to begin again.  We just began from zero in 2004.

We pay no taxes.  We are able to use deductions and charitable contributions wisely.

Every bit of surprise income and extra income goes in the savings pot.

With every on-going endeavor or project, ask yourself regularly: 

“Knowing what I know now, would I begin this/get involved in this, brand new, right now?”

If the answer is “No”, then get out, regardless of how much time, energy or money has already been invested or what your prior agreements or commitments may have been. The “trap of prior economic investment” can keep you involved in something way beyond its usefulness and into a time when that something drains your energy and resources meant to be directed elsewhere. It is better to get out “at a loss” than have any endeavor sink the whole ship.

Know exactly how much money you need to pay which expenses in every single week of each month. 

This should be written down and checked off as it is paid. That way you also know how much income you need on or before the 1st week, 2nd week, etc of each month. You should also write down when your “predictable” income comes in so you can count on that. Then let your consciousness and affirmation attract what is needed for the balance. (Note: you also need to know which week or weeks you will make deposits to your savings or Freedom Fund, and how much.)

For a period of 3 months, track very precisely every penny of income and expense. 

This increases your awareness and your level of responsibility.
We use Quicken because it is cheap, easy to set up and easy to use—about 5 minutes a day. 

Get receipts for everything and record daily. It’s a habit and will pay off greatly. 

You will quickly notice where money “slips through the cracks” and where you are spending money which might be more important for you to save. 

Every time you cut expenses, add that money to the amount you are saving. 

Track / graph your savings balance as well.  

No matter that it starts slowly. It’s the momentum that builds over time.

Save in an account that is separate from, and harder for you to access than, your regular bank account. 

We use ING on line. ( <>  It is easy. You can transfer funds directly from your bank (and to your bank, should you ever need access). It pays good interest. It is safe. It is one step away from normal, everyday access.
