What is Prosperity?
Prosperity and abundance circulates through the universe and through all our lives...it is an never ending flow of giving and receiving.
Our inner world is formed by our perceptions of the outer world. We all see the world through our own personal window which is a reflection of our beliefs, interpretations and associations. These have been formed throughout our lives by our numerous experiences. Our prosperity is really a reflection of our thoughts.
How do you recognize Prosperity?
Many people only associate prosperity with financial wealth but true riches are of many kinds. Along with material wealth there is also love, friendships, family, health, knowledge and spiritual wealth.
How do you get Prosperity?
For prosperity to touch your life there is just one truth....Giving leads to receiving. Those who give, who are generous, who share their wealth whatever that may be know something greater; giving itself is real riches. By giving of your time, of your love, of your friendships or of your money you receive more inner satisfaction, happiness and peace.
What do you do with Prosperity?
Once you give a gift to someone, forget about it. Whenever you give something away, consider it a gift, and don't expect something in return. Give freely and from the heart. Give with the intention of making both the giver and the receiver happy.
Lao-Tse on Greed:
- If you want happiness then share happiness with all you meet
- If you want peace then live a peaceful life
- If you want love then give love freely and from your heart
- If you want joy then give joy to others
- If you have much give of your wealth
- If you have little give of your heart
Continuing to fill a pail after
it is full, water will be wasted
Continuing to grind an axe after it
is sharp will wear it away
Excess of light blinds the eye
Excess of sound deafens the ear
Excess of sweets deadens the taste
He who possesses moderation is
lasting and enduring.
Too much is always a curse
Most of all in wealth

A lot of the important principles of feng shui are based on Taoism, the ancient religion of China. According to Taoist thought, the universe can be divided into two separate areas, matter and spirit, in other words things that you can see, touch and hold to things that you cannot.
Taoist philosophers called things that can be touched Yin (earth and matter) and they called things that were ethereal Yang (heaven). A good representation of this is the Lucky Chinese Money, the good luck coins represent Yang as the circle and Yin as the square sitting in the middle of the circle.
Prosperity a never ending flow of giving and receiving.
