“There is one rule with money: you can never put money ahead of love. If you do, you violate love’s law of attraction, and you will suffer the consequences. Love must be the ruling force in your life. Nothing can ever be put above love. Money is a tool for you to use, and you bring it to yourself through love, but if you put money ahead of love in your life, it will cause you to receive a whole bunch of negative things. You can’t give love for money and then walk around being rude and negative to people, because if you do that, you open the door for negativity to walk into your relationships, health, happiness, and finances.” – The Power, by Rhonda Byrne
This blog post builds on yesterday, when I suggested that money doesn’t bring happiness—at least not always, and not for very long. Now Rhonda Byrne is trying to get us to see that love is the important factor in a good life. If we attempt to attract money without having love in our heart, we won’t be pleased for long, for money can be a very selfish thing. Love, on the other hand, is generous and kind—at least when the love remain generous. No negativity need enter, unless we are after a special love that will turn to ashes.
“Love must be the ruling force in your life. Nothing can ever be put above love.” Yes! When our heart is made mellow by our pursuit of genuine, holy love, our way forward in life is assured. We have found the elixir that will be the balm for every hurt.
Special love, however, is not what I mean. Special love is of the ego, egocentric, and we think more of ourselves than our beloved. In holy love, we can let the other go, if need be, and love on, in the release of our beloved. No genuine, holy love is ever lost. We come to know that the love is not in the other person, but in our own heart. We ourselves are capable of that great love, and that great love will bless us a thousand times over.
So: Ask to love, and to love deeply. In attracting love to our heart, we break no rules, engage no negativity. Our positive walk through life is assured.
