Tis the season of taxes for those of us in North America. Culturally and collectively we have an energy of angst around doing our taxes.
What if we have to pay? What if we don't get a refund, cause a refund would be very nice!
I hand our taxes off to an accountant, because they are not for us to do. The more you involve yourself in investing and such, the easier it is to miss things!
I have been re-reading the book Money Isn't The Problem-You Are! by Gary Douglas, founder of Access Consciousness. It is a book that opens space for me to consider another way of viewing my money.
One thing he writes is that wouldn't you rather make lots and lots of money and pay the tax, rather than begrudge the government the taxes you pay? Now there is an interesting point of view. He tells a story of a gentleman that got involved in an organization that believed that taxes were unconstitutional and his income went down. Mmmmmmm.....because money flows where attention goes?
But, back to tax season. Ours are done and we are getting refunds, but those refunds will be set aside to cover what might be, an unfavourable decision by CRA (IRS in the U.S.) regarding previous years. So, our tax season is ongoing. Letters go back and forth and today I have to call them to receive some clarity on the latest letter.
That aside, I wonder what it would be like to have this a non issue, because, I am making a mucho dollars in a never ending stream of financial abundance. So, I ask myself this question, because Access Consciousness is about being in the question;
"What would it take for me to create a continuing stream of financial abundance in my life?" Anything that doesn't allow that will I destroy and uncreate x a godzillion? (Of course I will!) good and bad, right and wrong, POD, POC, all nine, boys, shorts and beyonds! (Access Clearing Statement)
But of course I know it isn't that simple-I still have to take action. I have to pick up the phone and take care of business. I have to jump in the opportunities that show up, after asking, if they are right for me. There is one that has shown up and frankly I am sitting on the fence with it. It feels right but-oh the but! What is that but-clearing statement time!
So, for those of you stressing over tax season, what if you didn't have to? What if you could create financial abundance in your life? What could you do with all that money?
Let's face it-without enough money life can be challenging and with a lot of money you can contribute a lot to the world. You won't think twice about what you tip or if you can afford to donate to the cause of your choice. You can send your kids to college, you can have fabulous vacations, you can.....well you get the idea, oh and you can pay the tax man his share, because after all that is the current society we live in. Why fight it? Why not make it a non issue and have more money coming in than goes out?
