What is Real Wealth?

Topics:

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • What is it that I can give to you or you to me that brings each of us pleasure or new insight, that depletes neither of us, and that we can then pass on to others without losing anything of our own?

    What is it we can give to each other that improves the quality of living for both of us, and does so without exhausting the vital resources of our planet? What is it that cannot be taken from us in the way we can lose a job, our savings, or even a loved one?

    This is real wealth. It is our sincere smile, the honest concern that can be read in our eyes. It is a helping hand offered and the pleasure of sharing in something that relieves another’s burden. It is something of the wisdom we have garnered from our years of living offered unpretentiously and without attachment to whether it is received.

    It is the quality of our attention: our willingness not to judge or interpret as we listen. It is the way in which we let someone inside of us, so we can know him or her directly. Or know the sunset, or the light dancing on rustling leaves.

    Real wealth is a living presence, a soft current of joy that blesses us whenever we are truly present without reaction or defense, whenever our hearts are open and we offer to each moment a deep receptivity and respect.

    Real wealth can be passed on and on and no one loses, no one is diminished, energy is not wasted, nothing is harmed. Indeed quite the opposite: in the passing onward of our real wealth, we grow wealthier, more alive, more content.

    We have no need for any special place to showcase our importance. No stage must be set, no big car in the driveway. We have no need to fill a sense of emptiness by consuming for the sake of consuming. Like any addiction, material consumption just breeds the need to consume more and never fills the empty place. But giving of our caring, offering our attention, really listening to each other, this fills us from within and it is a source that is inexhaustible.

    When we are really wealthy, it is not being seen for what we have that fills us, it is how we see.

    Richard Moss, the Maestro of “DEEP WORK,” has given his life over teaching people how to delve deeply into their inner core so they can achieve a life of “Radical Aliveness,” Unconditional Love, and Real Inner Peace. For 37 years, this globally renowned physician-turned-master healer, international bestselling Hay House author, and workshop leader has been guiding people on profound journeys of self-inquiry and self-discovery that have transformed their relationship with themselves, with their loved ones and with the world. Moss’ work is centered in helping people achieve present moment awareness—and to clear away the beliefs, habits and thinking patterns that prevent them from living in a hyper-alive, joyful and loving state of being nearly all of the time. In Moss’ bestselling books Inside-Out Healing and The Mandala of Being, he outlines his methodology for achieving this mastery. But while people can do this work on their own, it is often in the workshops, lovingly coached by Moss, that many achieve their most profound transformations. People seek out Moss for many reasons: resolving or coping with a health crisis; feeling stuck in old patterns; experiencing an emotional malaise; yearning to deepen their life path; seeking to reignite, improve or save a relationship, and desiring to catalyze new creative energy to achieve or accomplish a desired goal. And what they experience in either the 10-day Radical Aliveness Retreats, the 3 or 4-day Deep Work Workshops or the Couples Deep Work Intensive Programs, is nothing short of seeing the world through new eyes—the eyes of their true selves. And experiencing it with the full embodiment of their feeling sense—and especially their heart. Interested in changing YOUR life?
