Conscious Prosperity: The Secret to Simple & Lasting Personal Wealth, with John Moore

TIME: 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM

LOCATION: Unity Spiritual Life Center, 2604 Carver Street, Durham, NC 27705  —  (919) 471-3504

Admission: Voluntary, Value-Based Tuition. Your tuition is based on the value YOU feel you received from the content payable at the end instead of the beginning.

Are you prepared for your Retirement?  How is your overall financial situation?

Imagine what your life would be like if you had no mortgage payment…no car payments…no credit card payments…no debts whatsoeverWouldn’t you be better off?

Your seminar leader, John “mo’ money” Moore who has been called the “pied piper” of financial independence and the “Debtfree Guru”, has been teaching the system for over 13 years at churches, colleges & universities and corporations; and it has had a profound impact on his life.  He is on a crusade to increase the wealth of America.  Mr. Moore, as an investment and consulting professional, has led cash management and personal growth workshops throughout the country for more than 25 years.

This program is for everyone, especially those that are paying all of his or her debts each month and still have money leftover for investing.

If you’re the typical family that is “paying yourself first” that traditional 10% of your monthly income, you would accumulate about $500,000 over 30 years, the life of a mortgage.

Following what you will learn in the workshop, using exactly the same money, you would be DEBT FREE in about 8 years and go onto accumulate over $2,000,000 in assets!

WHICH WOULD YOU PREFER? $500,000 and all of your debt or $2,000,000 and being totally debtfree?

And if you can’t save money at all, this will change your life!

This is not an investment program, debt-consolidation, re-financing or bi-monthly mortgage plan.  This workshop is strictly educational in nature. You will leave with a written plan on how to and when you will be out of debt, as well as when you will be able to live off the income from your investments!

  • Learn how to pay off all your consumer debt in 1 to 3 years. And, if you have a mortgage, you can pay that off in another 4 to 5 years. Then, take the same money you were using to pay your debts and build true wealth turning every $1 of debt into $12.98 of real wealth.
  • Bring a calculator, a list of your debts (showing current balance, current payment and minimum payment – principle & interest only). This information is to complete your personal plan, will not be shared in class and is completely confidential.
  • Register in advance to ensure that we have adequate materials by calling (919) 471-3504.
  • The workshop is offered on a “Voluntary, Value-Based Tuition”.  Your tuition is based on the value YOU feel you received from the content payable at the end instead of the beginning.
  • You will receive a comprehensive, 18-page workbook included in your tuition, and there is an optional Textbook available from the instructor for $49.95.

Reflections from a Spiritual Perspective of The Prodigal Son

August 2, 2010

Here are a few key ideas captured from our recent Spiritual Bible Study class, focused on The Prodigal Son:

The younger son symbolizes our undeveloped awareness of our true spiritual nature, a nature that tends to let our ego get in the way. Like him, we learn Truth principles, use affirmations and denials, experience Truth principles working in our lives, our good manifests, and then we forget about our connection to Spirit. Sound familiar?

We use our inheritance (our manifested good) from our Father (the I AM Presence within us) and go to a “far country” (which stands for our material consciousness). Enticed by the lure of plasma TV’s, expensive homes and cars, Wall Street promises, lotteries, alcohol and drugs, and coconut rum ice-cream, we squander our good because we are inconsistent  in our Truth walk.

Advertisers tell us we are incomplete unless we buy this or go into debt for that. And we believe them! We allow our material appetites to trump our spiritual common sense.

Then we awaken to the truth of who we really are (the prodigal comes to himself) and realize our connection to Spirit (in the story the younger son says: “I will rise and go back to my Father”). When we go to our I AM Presence, we find the happiness, peace and prosperity we seek.

In the story, while the prodigal son is yet far off his Father sees him (God only sees the true us, the spiritual us.  Even though we forget our oneness with our Christ Nature by giving power to outer appearances, God knows us  and welcomes us with awesome abundance once we honor our God-Mind connection).

The older son, who stayed with the father all along, represents our moralistic and judgmental poverty consciousness.  Like him, we lose sight of our abundance because we block our good with our doubts, fears, lack of faith, impatience, jealousy and any other form of lack consciousness that separates us from enjoying the abundance we can have. All we have to do is ask, believe in our worthiness to receive, and enjoy our abundance. But we go to a “far country” instead of Headquarters!

Whether we go searching for our good (like the younger son) or fail to appreciate it when we’re standing in the middle of it (like the older brother), we end up in the same place if we are inconsistent in our meditation, prayer, faith, forgiveness, and tithing.

These are the metaphysical keys to accelerating our prosperity. The sooner we outgrow our prodigal choices and the sooner we make prosperity-affirming choices a habit, the sooner we’ll enjoy the inheritance that is ours, pressed down and running over.

What does this parable say to YOU, about your life experience right now?
