Don’t believe in bankruptcy

July 28, 2011 | 7 comments


One truism the student of metaphysics learns is that whatever you believe to be true for another, you open yourself up to having a similar experience.  Humans live out what they believe.  So, if you don’t want to have the experience, it’s paramount that you do not accept the possibility.
And one area of economic error that needs to be vigorously defended against these days is the temptation to accept bankruptcy as inevitable and even desirable.
Bankruptcy has been acting like a contagious disease in recent years, spreading throughout the economy from person to person with a seemingly uncontrollable appetite.  The news accounts of people going underwater with their mortgages and filing for bankruptcy are so numerous and prolific, that after a while, they have a numbing effect on the population, and mortal mind would win the day by causing people to believe it might happen to them; that times are tough, and it’s what happens.
But this type of reasoning is no different than a contagious disease running through town with the newspaper advertising it, suggesting that anyone and everyone is liable to get it.  This, of course, is not true, and can be proven untrue if one’s thought is vigorously protected from accepting the temptation.
To remain safe, we all need to defend our financial security from the temptation to believe bankruptcy or other economic calamities are inevitable or a part of life.  The sooner the better! Don’t wait until your feet start to sink.
God’s riches abound and they meet all human needs. They are ever-present, overflowing, adequate to the demand of the moment, and abundantly bestowed on all of creation.  They are spiritual—wisdom, intelligent action, wise choices, diligent pursuit, economy, and all the other qualities of Mind that contribute to sound financial planning.  Each of us, as a child of God, is naturally endowed with the intelligence and wisdom that leads to wise choices that produce positive outcomes.
Claim your inheritance!  Know beyond a doubt how rich and wealthy you are as a beloved, cared for, and watched over child of God. And act like it!
Poverty and lack are not endowed into our being.
God reminds us, as recorded in Proverbs:


I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.”


Don’t believe in bankruptcy any more than you would believe in a disease. God’s good never ends or runs out.  It’s forever, and it’s yours.  Live in confidence every day.

  1. When I first saw the topic, I wondered, “Do I need to read this? I’m not threatened by bankruptcy”. But you are so right — to accept a claim for anyone else about anything negative is to accept it for our self. Thank you so much for the healing truths in this article that are applicable to so many other situations besides bankruptcy.


  2. Thanks, Evan. I really needed this today – with what you hear about the government every hour of the day and all going on around us, we need to stay alert and know that supply is spiritual. Vicki

  3. Thank you so much, Evan! This is something I have been struggling with…..I “get it”! Thanks for turning on my light and turning my thought into the right direction!

  4. I struggled with this issue for quite a while. I was one with too much pride to file. With much prayer and divine guidance I felt led to file and it turned out to be a most wonderful experience for me. Mrs. Eddy clearly reminds us all to “owe no man” and I believe that’s an important lesson to learn. I had tons of credit card debt. I used my credit cards to live on when I had lost jobs at different times. When I finally started working, even after five years I was still “struggling”. My interest rate was approaching 30% and on top of that I was never late. I felt I was being punished. I thought one was a horrible person for actually filing and I had to learn to let go and let God and that if it does come from God it will be a divine experience that cannot harm me. I also learned we cannot judge one another. While I don’t think we should hastily file, I am grateful it is an option and a right we have should we need it if necessary. I don’t believe we should be punished for having done so. My whole experience was so incredibly amazing and I wouldn’t trade that experience for anything.
