Your Automatic Right to be Rich
Copyright © 2006 Shannon Baldwin
Wallace Wattles Online

It's a fact that you cannot possibly live a really complete 
and successful life unless you are rich. You can't achieve your 
greatest potential in talent or soul development unless you have 
plenty of money. And to unfold your soul and to develop talent 
you must have many things to use and you cannot have these things 
unless you have money to buy them with.

You develop in mind, soul, and body by making use of things, and 
our society is structured so that you must have money in order to 
get these things. And so, the basis of all advancement for your 
life must be the science of getting rich.

   "The object of all life is development; and everything that 
   lives has an inalienable right to all the development it is 
   capable of attaining." --- Wallace D. Wattles

Your right to life means your right to have the free and 
unrestricted use of all the things that are needed for your 
fullest mental, spiritual, and physical unfoldment - in other 
words, your automatic right to be rich.

We're not going to talk about riches in a figurative way - to 
be really rich doesn't mean to be satisfied or content with a 
little. You shouldn't be satisfied with a little if you're 
capable of using and enjoying more.

The purpose of Nature is the advancement and unfoldment of life; 
and you should have all the things that can contribute to the 
power; elegance, beauty, and richness of life - to be content 
with less is a crime.

Life today has advanced so far, and become so complex, that the 
average person requires a great amount of money in order to live 
in a way that even approaches completeness. 

You naturally want to be all that you are capable of being; this 
desire to realize innate possibilities is inherent in your human 
nature; you can't help wanting to be all that you can be.

To succeed in life you must be what you want to be; you can 
become what you want to be only by making use of things, and you 
can have the free use of things only as you become rich enough to 
buy them. To understand the science of getting rich then becomes 
the most important of all knowledge.

There is nothing wrong in wanting to get rich. The desire for 
wealth is really the desire for a richer, fuller, and more 
abundant life and that desire is praise worthy. Anyone who 
doesn't want to live more abundantly is abnormal, and so the 
person who doesn't wish to have enough money to buy all they 
want is abnormal.

   "There are three motives for which we live; we live for the 
   body, we live for the mind, we live for the soul. No one of 
   these is better or holier than the other; all are alike 
   desirable, and no one of the three--body, mind, or soul--can 
   live fully if either of the others is cut short of full life 
   and expression. It is not right or noble to live only for the 
   soul and deny mind or body; and it is wrong to live for the 
   intellect and deny body or soul." --- Wallace D. Wattles

I'm sure you're acquainted with the consequences of living for 
the body and denying both mind and soul; and we see that real 
life means the complete expression of all that we can give 
through body, mind, and soul.

Whatever you say, you can't be really happy or satisfied unless 
your body is living fully in every function, and unless the same 
is true of your mind and soul.

Wherever there is unexpressed possibility, or function not 
performed, there is unsatisfied desire. Desire is possibility 
seeking expression, or function seeking performance.

You cannot live fully in body without good food, comfortable 
clothing, and warm shelter; and without freedom from excessive 
work. Rest and recreation are also a necessary part of your 
physical life.

You cannot live fully in mind without books and time to study 
them, without opportunity for travel and observation, or without 
intellectual companionship.

To live fully in mind you must have intellectual recreation, 
and you should surround yourself with all the objects of art 
and beauty you are capable of using and appreciating.

To live fully in soul, you must have love; and love is denied 
expression by poverty.

Your highest happiness is found in the giving of things to the 
ones you love - love finds its most natural and spontaneous 
expression in giving.

If you have nothing to give you cannot fill your place as a wife 
or husband, as a citizen, or as a person. It's in the use of 
material things that you find full life for your body, develop 
your mind, and unfold your soul.

   "It is perfectly right that you should desire to be rich; 
   if you are a normal man or woman you cannot help doing 
   so. It is perfectly right that you should give your 
   best attention to the Science of Getting Rich, for it 
   is the noblest and most necessary of all studies."
