Many people stuck with payment because they don’t understand its purpose. Paying is an expression of true satisfaction as we achieve the standard of living we want and an expression of true gratitude to God that enables us to achieve it through other people.
Perhaps this definition is too metaphysical, so I’ll clarify it so that we understand that payment happens at the same time on the spiritual and physical level (as well as everything else). Without such understanding, it is not possible to solve the problem of payment, which is shaking the world economy today.
Let’s start from the beginning and go through the phases of the creative process and get to the payment phase.
According to the universal law of creation, everything that man has ever created and which will ever be created comes from his creative potential, which he recognizes in his heart as creative ideas, inspiration, intuition – inspiration. That’s what we feel and we know we want to accomplish and why we are warm about the heart when we think of it to be accomplished.
Product of our work is a pure materialization of creativity
The next step in the creative process is a creative expression. It is the decision (we will) to achieve the will of the beings and the desire of the heart. The result of creative work is always a product (idea, service or item) that serves, either for personal consumption, or intended for others. The product has a double function. To the creator is the materialization of a creative idea, and to its recipient – a useful value or a required standard.
For example, if my career or call to encourage people to consciously live and transform their consciousness, my product is a course, a column, a book, a conversation. Or more specifically, at the spiritual level, by expressing creativity, I have widespread awareness of my value and I contribute to the general well-being, while at the physical level I use my product to achieve common goals with other people (who need my product).
On the other hand, my recipients see it on two levels. On the spiritual level, they increase their value and thus realize the purpose of their existence, while on the physical level they gain the experience they need for the transformation of consciousness (the achievement of their value) through information obtained.
Otherwise, the standard is all the conditions we need to experience Self at the physical level of existence. These are items (home, clothing, food, transportation, communication …), services (legal, fashion, financial, psychological, hospitality …) and ideas (intellectual, artistic, spiritual …). The standard allows us to enjoy comfortable, quality and successful living.
The standard already has our potential and therefore we need to thank God for every experience we want to accomplish or have already achieved, not just for food before meals. Our gratitude reminds us that in our potential we already have everything we need to gain the experience we need.
No one’s standard can be achieved without cooperation with other people because everyone produces only one segment of the total social product. Therefore, the economy is based on the division of labor and the mutual exchange of goods, which means that all that we need to produce is another person, and we transfer our excess work to others.
Acceptance – the most important moment of the creative process
Now comes the most important moment of the creative process. This is a delivery or a contact between the provider and its recipient, which occurs at the time of payment – confirmation that the recipient has received our product.
At the time of physical delivery, the energy of the donor and receiver synergically coincides with the same goal and increases the value (new value). At that point, the money stacks on the scene. It is this bond (intelligence) that connects people and allows value enhancement. The provider invests his energy and makes a contribution – revenue, and his recipient invests his energy and achieves the experience standard.
When charging and paying, it’s important to be aware of the following principles.
Firstly, it is important to know that the currency and the price are always determined by the provider and proposed to their recipient. If the recipient does not agree with the proposed currency, then it is a sign that contact cannot be established, which means that there is no common goal, so there is no cooperation or partnership.
Currency is the way we want the recipient to confirm that he has been pleased to receive our shipment. If we are singing for money then the currency will be our banknotes, if we give a concert, then we will appreciate the audience’s satisfaction, if we give our time, attention, feelings, then the currency may be the same, but something else (tenderness, understanding, support …)
Our recipient must know which currency he wants to pay. If our currency proposal fails, it only means that you are not interested in this offer or there is a blockage that needs to be removed first.
The overpayment paid has no value
Often recipients try to change the currency offered and impose their own. Banknotes instead of feelings or feelings instead of banknotes (these are usually two major currencies). If we do, we will be unhappy and dissatisfied. So when negotiating (business, friendship, love) we need to be transparent and consistent in expressing our criteria and not to enter into a relationship if the recipient does not match our terms.
The second principle is that the amount of energy that a provider invests in a product should always be equivalent to the energy the investor invests in his standard. If it is a means of paying a banknote, then it is the amount of energy that the recipient invests in earning the banknotes, and if the currency is thanked, then that is the amount of energy the recipient invests in the sense of pleasure he receives the product.
For example, if the price of a product is one hundred dollars, and the recipient – buyer believes it is too high, it just means he is not ready to invest so much energy into the offered product. What happens if a buyer, despite being too expensive, agrees to buy this product? Who profited and who lost?
Everyone was lost. The seller loses because he does not earn revenue but only gets “empty bills” without the energy cover in customer satisfaction. This is not real money and such banknotes disappear very quickly. The buyer, on the other hand, will not achieve the true standard, even though he has given the banknotes. We do not value the paid-in product, because we are dissatisfied with it, and the product you buy is quickly disappearing (lost, stolen, smashed …)
The same principle applies to non-financial payments. If we are equally involved in a friendly or partnership relationship, then the relationship grows and develops because then we all get and progress. But if someone regards more than one investing in a relationship, then the contact automatically breaks down or does not establish at all, no matter how long some people can maintain apparent relationships in which there is no synergy in giving.
How to guess the right payment?
How do we know if we’ve hit the right amount of payment? The answer is – to the amount of enthusiasm (divine feeling). If we are really happy to have invested our energy to achieve the standard we really want, then we received in our heart. This is the third principle of proper payment, which shows if we really received it.
Every man is innate to give back what he has received with heart. This is because receiving the soul “fills” and wants to “empty”. Everyone knows this from their own experience.
There are no market laws, supply and demand laws, nor the law of value that will tell us if we have bought something cheap. We really know it all by ourselves. If we are satisfied with the product, the price, and the currency, then we have established contact with the seller for mutual satisfaction and general well-being and allowed our spiritual leadership to freely provide us with the standard we need.
I repeat briefly. Everything happens on two levels of consciousness.
At a spiritual level – work is perceived as creative expression, we know for income that God’s reward for selfless service, we know that God provides us with means and conditions (standard) in order to be free to express and selflessly served and we know that payment of confirmation and gratitude to God for received standard.
At the physical level, it looks like this. We deliver our product to other people as a useful value (God sends them through us), we receive divine income through other people who buy our products, and from others, we buy what we need (what God “sends”).
The problem arises only because we are not aware of the spiritual dimensions of the economy, or when we are only identified with the physical dimension in which the exchange is taking place.
As long as we do not realize that life takes place simultaneously on both levels of existence, which are not separate, there will not be any real solution. Nothing will happen until everyone changes their consciousness.
So if we have any problems with work, revenue, standard or payment, we have certainly neglected the spiritual dimension of this aspect of the creative process.
