Prosperity and abundance are, first and foremost, of an inner nature and are expressed in joy, love, peace, freedom and harmony
Forging Our Destiny
As Billy Meier said, “You are the smith of your own destiny”. And that destiny, like everything else in our lives, is directly connected with and determined by our thinking, through the might of our thoughts. He has made it clear that a thought is a might unto itself and that properly controlled, consciously formed, neutral-positive thoughts bring forward the desired results in time.
Since many factors and human beings are involved in life, we can’t always control all of the circumstances we may find ourselves in. But as Meier points out, we can control our own thoughts.
We think constantly but we are rarely consciously aware that we are doing so, or of the content of each and every thought. Nonetheless, these thoughts lead to and create our feelings; it’s not the other way around. And these feelings in turn lead to our actions, thereby creating our lives.
The Law of Provision
So it is also with the material life in terms of having that which one requires to live in the world. We often mistake our wants and desires for our true needs. And rarely do we realize that to have what we truly need means that we are…wealthy*.
Regarding the law of provision, Meier says:
It must be heeded that the law of provision only functions for those human beings who live according to it. It is clear that it can be doubted by this or that human being, yet only because there is no understanding of the principal (sic) which is based on the fact that prosperity and abundance are, first and foremost, of an inner nature and are expressed in joy, love, peace, freedom and harmony, and then only secondarily as material wealth, and so forth.

Maybe You Can’t Bank on That Anymore
There is no shortage of information about the present and coming financial crisis. I reported on what Meier told me, in 2006, about how if things go a certain way, we in America may as well “roll cigarettes with your paper money.
The photographs below were taken in New York City by Arie Levy-Cohen**, a student of the spiritual teaching. They show barricades being built around certain banks, to perhaps prevent direct attacks on them, and also NYPD barriers that can be moved for use in crowd control…should situations similar to what’s already happened in other countries ultimately happen here.
As I said before, we can’t always control all external circumstances but Meier has given us very clear guidelines as to how we can control our own destinies through the might of our thoughts.
It can be seen that the spiritual teaching is also a practical guide to daily living…as well as the key to our future survival.
*My friend Scott suggested that “affluence” is a better word but perhaps they both convey the idea.
