It is not nice to steal or alienate things from others that we have not earned or bought ourselves. By doing so, we show the Universe that we think we don’t have enough and that we didn’t even deserve to have more than we have. Why is that so? From an early age, most children are taught by their parents that they must be modest and humble, and that money corrupts people and such. Likewise, you hear the same thing in some of your religious communities (in Catholic it is often). They point the finger at those who get rich quickly, and they also point the finger at those whom society condemns for economic crime. It’s a very shallow view of an individual and very wrong one. I’m not talking about punishment but about perspective of the situation. Why?
Everyone incarnated (the soul entered the material body) in order to learn something. We all come with feelings that we need to understand and accept in order to grow spiritually further. Everyone has their own way of fulfilling these tasks, and God makes it possible for everyone by sending them different events and situations. God gives us a choice in all situations, which means it is up to us whether we accept it or not. That means we have to think and decide. The decision is up to us whether we will take the path of growth, which means that we will weigh all possible elements and decide whether we will accept solving the problem so that it can have positive or negative consequences for us.
It’s all up to us.
Those who told you that you would be and that you should be poor, were telling you wrong. God created abundance for all! The way of thinking that has been instilled in you since childhood prevents you (most) from moving in the direction of “I have”, “I have enough”. The only thing I recommend to you is to turn to faith in God. God is neither a religion nor a dogma.
