KW_对金钱的信念

我听过心灵平安基金会出版的录音带:“Form vs. Content: Sex and Money”,里面提到:是你把内心对于金钱的信念投射到外境去。请问我们如何能精准地找出那个内在信念,进而改变它们呢?

在思索“如何认出你对金钱的信念”这一问题之前,先澄清一下“奇迹课程”面对整个小我思想和信念的因应之道,可能会有所帮助:觉察这些小我的信念和思想,只是为了要让我们为自己所做的选择负责,目的不是“改变”它们。否则,等于赋予了我们主导整个救赎过程的角色,而这是注定失败的秘方。

课程的目的是要让潜意识里的念头浮现到意识层次,进而为自己所做的选择负责,并了解它们在小我计划里的真正用意,然后把它们以及随之而来的内疚一并释放到圣灵或耶稣的治愈之光里。不要试图去改变它们,因为那样反而会把它们弄假成真,结果只是用这个小我信念取代那个小我信念。

金钱不过是我们内在对自己的信念所投射于外的一种形式或象征而已。那么,你对金钱的态度和感觉是什么呢?

喔,对了,待会儿你回答底下的问题时,并没有所谓的对或不对,好或不好,它们只是反映出你对自己以及别人的基本小我信念而已,不是“特殊的爱”,就是“特殊的恨”。迟早我们会了解到,它们既无对错,也无好坏,只是毫不真实而已。但在体会到这层之前,我们得先正视它们,因为我们真的打从心底这样相信。唯有与耶稣或圣灵一起面对,我们才可能诚实且不批判地面对它们。

你是否感觉从来没有足够过?你是否害怕失去你所拥有的金钱?有钱是否让你觉得比较安心或更有安全感?对你而言,存钱是否成了安全的象征,足以抵御不可知的危险和障碍?你是否会一赚到钱就尽快把它们花完,让自己总是处于负债中?

是否你认为金钱是一种地位和成功的象征,一种衡量你自己价值的东西?如果你不是很有钱,你是否会装阔?还是你会用贫穷来凸显你的清高?如果很富有,你会想要去炫耀吗?还是你会故意保持低调?

你在施舍或分享财富时有何感觉?对于比你有钱的人,你会嫉妒或生气吗?你对父母为你花钱时所表现的态度有何感受?你在亲密关系中与人共同管理金钱或某些资源时,是否冲突迭起?对于别人处理金钱的方式你会作何批判?你在表达不同观点时的心态如何?

当你思索上述问题或你想得到的金钱问题时,你会想要深入面对它们所反映出的潜藏念头、感觉和信念。那些念头与感受不外乎:欠缺、匮乏、剥夺、限制、不安全、恐惧、受害意识、不负责任、羞愧、内疚或骄傲、胜利、优越、慷慨、力量、控制等等。

最重要的一点即是你得体悟出,这些都是你对自己的基本感受,跟金钱或别人,甚至跟世界上任何事物一点关系都没有。它们不过反映出你心中紧抓不放的分裂之念以及你想把分裂当真的愿望。

分裂之念不过是一种想要与爱分开的渴望,为了建立一个个别的自我,不惜去攻击爱或是毁灭爱。在这过程中,我们以为自己的价值也一并被摧毁了。

随着无价值感而来的感受是如此痛苦,内心承受不了,又不愿承认,只好投射到我们所营造的世界去,找寻最方便的下手处,来隐藏这些感受,金钱即是其中一个投射的对象。于是,被投射的象征物成了问题之所在,而非我们心中那些用来贬低真实自我的分裂思想了。

这样,小我的思想体系便保全下来了,同时,“除了在虚幻不实的梦境中,分裂不可能存在”,“世上没有一物能够剥夺我们爱的本质”这些圣灵的救赎原则也被否定了。

我们一旦了解了小我投射在世界以及金钱上的用心所在,我们便能以不同的眼光来看待一切,知道它们是我们通往潜意识的窗口。在这一刻,我们就可以做出不同的选择,并忆起我们身为上主神圣之子的真实价值。

Q#139: I listened to the tape set Form vs. Content: Sex and Money. It said that you project out from inside your beliefs about money. How do you find out exactly what your beliefs are so that you can change them?

Before considering how you may identify your beliefs about money, a little clarification of A Course in Miracles approach to all of our ego thoughts and beliefs may be helpful first. We want to become aware of them so that we can accept responsibility for choosing them, but not so that we can change them. That would put us in charge of the process of Atonement, a surefire formula for failure. The goal with the Course is that we make our unconscious thoughts conscious, accept responsibility for choosing them, recognize what purpose they serve in the ego’s scheme, and then release them along with the guilt they necessarily entail to the healing light of the Holy Spirit or Jesus. But we don’t want to try to change them! For that would make them real and would involve substituting one ego belief for another.

Money is simply an external form or symbol onto which we project our beliefs about ourselves. So what are your attitudes and feelings about money? By the way, there are no right or wrong, good or bad, answers to the questions that follow. All answers will reflect basic ego beliefs about yourself and others, of either a special love or special hate nature. In the end, we will realize they are neither right nor wrong, good nor bad, but simply untrue. But we first have to look at them, because we do believe them, and look with Jesus or the Holy Spirit beside us so that we can look openly and honestly. 

Do you feel you never have enough? Are you afraid of losing the money you have? Does having money make you feel better or more secure about yourself? Do you save it as a symbol of security and safety against unforeseen dangers and obstacles? Or do you tend to spend it as quickly as you get it and are always in debt? Do you see having money as a symbol of status and success, a mea­sure of your worth? If you don’t have much money, do you try to pretend you have more? Or do you wear your poverty as a badge of specialness? If you have lots of money, do you like to flaunt it? Or do you try to keep a low profile about it? How do you feel about sharing your money with others or giving it away? Are you jealous or resentful of those who have more money than you? How do you feel your parents have been towards you with money? If you are in a relationship with someone else which involves joint management of money and resources, is there conflict around handling it? What is the nature of the disagreements you have and what judgments do you find yourself making about how the other handles money? 

As you reflect on your answers to these and other related questions about money that may come to mind, you want then to get in touch with the underlying thoughts, feelings and beliefs that these represent. These may be thoughts and feelings of inadequacy, scarcity, deprivation, limitation, insecurity, fear, victimization, irresponsibility, shame and guilt, pride, triumph, superiority, generosity, power, control, and so on. The important recognition that you want to foster is that these are basic feelings about yourself that have nothing to do with money, or other people, or anything of the world. These are repercussions from seriously entertaining the thought of separation in your mind and wanting it to be true. For the thought of separation is nothing less than the desire to be separate from love, including a willingness to attack and destroy love in order to establish an individual self. And in that process we believe we have destroyed our own value. And so all of the accompanying feelings of worthlessness, which become too painful to hold in our mind and acknowledge, become projected out onto a world of our own making, with many convenient targets and repositories for those feelings, including money. And then those external symbols seem to be the problem, rather than the thought of separation in our mind through which we devalued our true Self. At that point, the ego thought system is well protected from the Holy Spirit’s Atone­ment principle, which says separation is impossible except in illusory dreams and nothing has really happened to deprive us of the love that we are. But once we understand the ego’s purpose for the world, including money, we can look at all of it differently, and know it is a window to our own unconscious mind. And now we can make a different choice, remembering our true Value as God’s holy Son.
