I am here, Jesus.
I want to describe more how I feel and think about the economic system now in place.
We Angels have as our primary goal to encourage mortals onto the Divine pathway. But since a mortal also has basic material needs, we also have to be aware of these needs as well.
We are not indifferent to social, economic, or political concerns, even as we focus on the spiritual. And the critical nature of the way the world has evolved requires our attention to these matters, as supplementary to our greater spiritual concern.
As I said previously, we work together with non-Divine Love spirits who also wish to improve humanity’s welfare.
I want now to discuss what I had mentioned previously about the system. I said that the way money is earned is out of harmony. But then, I excluded certain categories.
The point I wished to make is that the system as it is now, is not equitable; it doesn’t provide equal access to the material needs, as some in the past had hoped it would. Instead, wealth, and with it power, accumulated to the very few. That is the present reality.
And another reality is that more and more in your world are suffering because they are not able to provide for themselves the basic necessities of life.
I was not indiscriminately condemning every accumulation of wealth, for that would be unfair. It has happened many times that people who have come into wealth, have used this wealth for the betterment of humanity, and this behavior is true to the basic goodness and generosity of your countrymen and women.
Let me use you as an example. Your mother’s death left a comfortable inheritance for you and your siblings. It took you by surprise, as you had thought that her money would have been used up in medical bills. This was something we had arranged, for your survival and your comfort.
Another point I wish to make is that we do not see material wealth as important, except insofar as it can choke out the soul’s growth. As the Bible says, this wealth often encourages choices that damage the soul.
But we do not see material wealth as necessarily evil, despite what one may read in the Bible. What we do emphasize is the tendency of material wealth to handicap the soul.
