Genuine prosperity is built on spiritual foundations

by Jose Silva

All programming for prosperity should be built on spiritual foundations
The first step is to enter the spiritual dimension, the alpha level, and determine what your purpose in life is. Find out what you are here for, what you are supposed to do with your life.
Then you take steps to meet your obligations.
When programming for money or other material things, the first thing to think about is what you are going to do when you get it. You don't want to just go away on a vacation and forget everything else.
Your obligations continue while you are still alive and still have breath of life. Even if you have to drag yourself across the ground, you still have the same obligation to try and do your best to correct the problems on the planet. When you are not here any more, then you cease to be obligated.
If you do the right job, then money will come to you. Because people who need you will request, will ask for you, will attract you, and will be willing to pay you for your services. If you are a good worker, then everybody wants you, and will be willing to pay a fair amount. But if you're not, they don't want you.
This was why whenever I went to look for a job, when I was in the service and needed to supplement my income, everywhere I'd go they'd ask what I wanted to earn, and I answered, "Whatever you think I'm worth. Try me out, and pay me accordingly."

Spiritual foundations

In the spiritual dimension, you determine what your purpose in life is. Then you plan how to go about doing it. Then you transfer it to the physical dimension.
That is the concept of the man who said, "Whatever the mind conceives in the spiritual dimension, and believes enough to transfer to the physical dimension, you will achieve." So the achievement was the transference of that particular thing that was created in the spiritual world, into the material, physical world.
It is just like the materialization of thoughts. You have to first create them spiritually, and then you use them in the physical world, to make sense with them, to serve a purpose with them. It is no good to just test them in one dimension. You have to go from one to another and have sense in both dimensions. The spiritual has to be first; we have to think about it before we act on it.
And remember, when programming, you do not program just because you want something, but because you need it. You may not always get what you want, but you can get what you need. And that depends on what you are going to need it for. If it is to correct problems, then you will probably get it.
I program to attract whatever we need. I do not program to receive more than what we need, but I sure put emphasis on receiving no less than what we need.
Of course, you need to know in your own mind just what it is that you need. You don't have to ask for it, but keep it in mind and everything will be automatic from there on.
You don't need to ask specifically for $50,000 if that's what you need; just keep your goal in mind, and program for all bills to be paid, or to have the things you need. Program to see your projects completed, and keep in mind what it takes to do it, as though somebody were looking in and wanting to know what you need so they can send it your way, whatever your needs are. If you don't keep it in your mind, there is no way for whoever is trying to help you to know.
It is always best to program in increments. For instance, suppose a person wants a lot of money and decides to program to start earning a lot of money. It is better done in small steps. For instance, some people lose their wits; they get spoiled when they get too much of what they are not used to having.
Some people are destroyed by their first failure, while others are destroyed by their first major success. So let's have successes in small amounts, leading up to being able to be successful. Sometimes when a person is too successful too rapidly, he goes off in all directions, and doesn't know how to cope with it. We say do not be ruined by your first failure, or spoiled by your first success.
As long as you keep yourself centered, and are fulfilling the purpose you were sent here for, you will succeed and be prosperous in all areas of life.
Successful first in the spiritual dimension, and then the followup of being successful is in taking advantage of what was in the spiritual world, will now be in the physical world. You help it to be transferred from one dimension to another.
Thinking, planning, analyzing, are done in the spiritual world first.
It must be done first in the spiritual world; this is a requirement. Meaning non-physical, meaning think about it, meaning use your mind, your thoughts, your human intelligence.
Plan it out, a step by step procedure. Short goals. Take the first step, followed by the second, and so forth.

Q: Do you program specifically for a new car, if you want a new car?

Again, the rules of the spiritual dimension: You have to think about it first, and set the rules spiritually before they can be materialized. You need to pass the test spiritually, meaning, is this correct? Then you are going to get materially, physically, what you need.
You should justify your needs in all fairness.
Do you specifically program for certain specific amounts of income for this business?
Do you feel that everything you have acquired, you need? Or have you gotten some things you just want?
Everything that I have acquired, I think I have acquired it because I needed it.
Like the jewelry for instance?
Again, jewelry, it is not that much. It is to have a safety factor in case or an emergency. We don't want to cause problems for anybody. We don't want to go begging in case of an emergency. We can exchange it, so we can get whatever we need in an emergency. We don't have to bother somebody else.
We could include psychological needs, emotional needs, social needs, and so forth. If it helps you work better, do a better job, then it is a need.
What about your Cadillacs? Wouldn't it have been better to buy two Chevrolets, you drive one and give the other to a needy person who doesn't have a car but needs one?
We might being doing something wrong, because he needs to qualify for his own needs. That might destroy him, it might make him a selfish person because then he would not need to do whatever he is supposed to do, and he would not evolve and develop. Somebody is doing his thinking for him.
Are we using up our natural resources too rapidly by having a big expensive car, one that takes more raw materials to make, that uses more fuel, etc.?
That's debatable. Some people make money from our purchasing fuel. Money is reaching so many pockets, it is buying something, and others will receive benefits from it.
