Spirituality Information For the Spiritual Investor

Spiritual leaders from all traditions say that for spiritual progress we must earn our income from activities that are deemed ’life-benefiting,’ and perhaps even more importantly, that we gain higher spiritual consciousness.

Gaining heightened spiritual consciousness is the most powerful ’tool’ we have to foresee developments in this dawning era. It expands our consciousness, provides greater comprehensiveness of thinking and more peace of mind — which behavioral researchers say is the most important trait for successful investing. It also brings us inner bliss and the ability to be closer to God. Such experiences are critical for our investing success, especially at this time.

The following spiritual sayings and quotes from spiritual leaders illustrate these points.
