Money Gathas Are Mindfulness
RAISING CLARITY helps people become peaceful and ethical with money. One way to do this is literally to use your experience of money as a mindfulness experience!
Gathas are for mindfulness. For more about gathas, see our post here. The point of money gathas is the point of any gatha–to express an intention to be mindful, and to be used as a mindfulness practice. Money could sure use this practice!
Here are My Money Gathas
Here are my attempts at writing money gathas:
Money Gatha #1:
In this money, I see
beauty and possibility
oppression and suffering.
I vow to use money with awareness.
Here is another:
Money Gatha #2:
Money came to me, I used money,
money moved on to another.
Where did I direct that money?
Where do I want my money to go?
And a third:
Money Gatha #3:
Money is a human thing.
Other animals do not use it.
Plants do not use it.
Minerals do not use it.
What is it, then?
And one last one:
Money Gatha #4:
If I behave according to the dictates of money,
I remember money can not dictate.
Only I do that.
Money behaves according to what I think, say, and do.
Now, Your Money Gathas
I hope to have inspired you to look deeply into money–and write a gatha or two!
