Going for the Gold: Is it about prizes, money — or love?

"You sit here for days saying, 'This is strange business.'
You're the strange business. You have the energy of the sun
in you, but you keep knotting it up at the base of your spine.
You're some weird kind of gold that wants to stay melted in
the furnace, so you won't have to become coins."

~ Rumi

The Olympics are all about prowess and prizes. And while it's exhilarating to watch athletes who have trained for years achieve their dream, there's a deeper dimension to what "gold" represents.

I've suggested before that we're "morphing out of materialism". In Beyond Prophecies and Predictions: Everyone's Guide to the Coming Changes, visionary author Moira Timms describes our emerging "true wealth" consciousness this way: "The mind analyzes — the heart synthesizes. The turning point is where the heart is awakening. America's motto, inscribed on the banner in the beak of the eagle of the Great Seal [of the United States], reminds us that America was founded on the principle of 'E Pluribus Unum' — 'Out of the Many, One.'"

Further, the inscription beneath the Great Pyramid (the centerpiece of the Great Seal, on the back of a one dollar bill) says, "Novus Ordo Seclorum" — which translates, appropriately, as "A New Order of the Ages.” So, the answer is in money — but it's not about who can become the richest at others' expense.

If we continue to consume planetary resources — and each other! — at the speed of greed, the money will not follow. True wealth/prosperity flows from alignment with purpose. "Get with the program" is not a reference to the home shopping network! It's about tuning in to a higher frequency. READ THE REST!
