In the Old Reality, the pursuit of wealth had a purely financial focus which resulted in a predictable set of experiences about life. Aggressive pursuers of wealth typically spent their lives chasing ever-greater financial goals, yet finding other aspects of their lives drawn into a downward spiral. This descending vortex entrapped them with overwhelming, self-imposed responsibilities and the constant need to go to great lengths to protect their wealth. At the conclusion of their lives, they wondered why they were envied, but not liked, and why no amount of wealth could bring back their health.
Old Reality consciousness was based in the solar plexus chakra, focusing on competition and the development of basic intellect. The New Reality exists in heart-centered consciousness, focusing on cooperation and the higher qualities of life. The New Reality definition of true wealth is this:
True wealth comes from enlightenment, peace, and purpose.
Here are the general areas of activity that bring true quality of life...
Studying the spiritual nature of reality
Studying wellness to enable you to function to your full potential
Developing skills related to your life's purpose
Creating a life filled with purpose, harmony and abundance
Experiencing inner peace and joy as you develop spiritually
Practicing daily meditation to develop inner awareness
Practicing service to others through your chosen work
