Judged And Frozen By Numbers
By Beca Lewis
Are you judged and frozen by numbers? When I was a Certified Financial Planner, I worked in the world that makes a point of seeing and judging everything through the lens of counting numbers. Numbers of people, numbers of dollars, numbers of appointments, numbers of sales, numbers of years; it’s all about numbers. If we don’t have the right numbers then “it” must not be working.
Of course, this is true everywhere isn’t it? Success is measured and reported by the numbers. How young-by numbers-do you look, how much money-in numbers-do you have, how many people-in numbers-have you helped today, how well–in numbers-has your money performed today, how many numbers of income did you earn, how many numbers of people love you, what’s the number of homes, toys, clothes and cars that you have?
What number of hours do you have to work to earn a living? What is the number of times you heard or said, “I love you” today? What number of words does this sentence need to be in order for it to effective?
Numbers are everywhere, and judging everything from the point of view of numbers is the language of our times. We all have one time or another, become frozen by judging our lives by numbers. Obviously it’s hard not be sucked into this all-invasive and persuasive point of view.
When we are doing well, we celebrate; when we are not doing well by the numbers, we work harder to get them. If that doesn’t work, we find ourselves slipping further and further into the belief that “numbers are who we are” and that means we are failing.
Usually we are not aware of how much we judge our lives and our purpose by how well we are doing by the numbers. However, using numbers as a tool for judging is how we are sold, persuaded, controlled and distracted from what is True.
Judging by numbers we enter the maze of the worldview of not enough, and no amount of anything—from money to love—will ultimately satisfy our needs.
People often asked me how I could possibly work with people’s finances and “teach” spirituality at the same time. It appears that these are two distinct and separate worlds, and they are, if we are judging by numbers.
However, we all are working with finances and spirituality at the same time in our lives. We all are required to see through the lie of number judging and start every thought from only one number—One.
One Mind that is unlimited intelligence, One Love that gives constantly, One Principle that operates only from infinite abundance, One Truth of our spiritual being, One Soul that expresses beauty without measure, One Spirit that is the substance of all, and One Life expressing Itself in unspeakable joy.
I have a clear memory of standing outside my mentor’s home many years ago as she spread her arms to embrace the beauty of her surroundings and told me of the day that she had finally freed herself from lack, by truly feeling and understanding that nothing could stop her from loving, and that Love was infinite.
Her life was proof that this simple, powerful statement is True and carries with it practical results.
What if we all lived this way and measured our lives only by how much we loved, starting with how much we love ourselves?
Judging and measuring from One Love means we can use numbers as guidelines and tools of awareness and understanding. Living in One we can unlock our frozen finite states of only so much, and let infinite supply flood through us, to us, and as us.
Beginning our thinking and taking action from the One we will find our innate freedom that does not have to be earned, only discovered. I know it’s easy to say, and hard to do. However, we can do it.
Together in spiritual perception, moment-by-moment, we can give up our addiction to judging by numbers. As the addiction dissolves, our awareness of the number One will be our guide, strength, and support throughout each day, with practical results following without measure.
