Sacred Cow #2 – Greed


Written by Nigel Percy


Sacred Cow #2

This is part two of what I consider to be two sacred cows in dowsing, which need more scrutiny than they have received so far. The first post looked at the idea of permission. This one looks at greed.


Now this particular sacred cow keeps barging around every now and then preventing people from doing things with dowsing. The name of this sacred cow is Needy. Actually, to give it its full name, it's Need Not Greed.

I have two questions for you. The first is, ‘Have you ever used this term on someone else or heard someone else use it about you or someone else in association with dowsing?'
The second question is, ‘Have you ever used this on yourself before dowsing?'

My guess is that it's Yes to the first and No to the second.

This poor beast deserves some quiet rest, for the following reasons.

The term ‘Need not Greed' is a judgment. Always. It is a judgment about what someone else is doing. And, as such, it is totally invalid. Who knows the real reason why someone would want to dowse the winning lottery numbers? Greed? Or a need to help a relative, get out of bankruptcy, set up a charitable foundation dear to their heart?

Let's take someone at random, Warren Buffet, for instance. Now, that is one rich man. A billionaire. That man attracts money like a large magnet. He doesn't need it. He must be greedy, right? And what about Bill Gates? Huge amounts of money floating around and getting bigger every day. Obviously very greedy. They don't need any more, do they?


Both of these men got together and organized a Giving Pledge, encouraging other billionaires to donate at least 50% of their fortunes to charities. As of November 2012, 91 billionaires had signed the pledge. The contribution of the first 40 donors alone has been estimated at $125 billion. Not bad for someone who is greedy, is it?

It's safe to say that, if you want to help people, either through money you leave in your will or more directly in your life, you need money. The more you have, the more you can help. It's an attitude of mind, not of money.

The other reason this phrase is thrown at someone is based on a misconception. I don't think I've ever heard it applied by someone who is wealthy. And that is because there is, amongst many people, the erroneous belief that being poor is somehow more spiritual. Having less means you are somehow worth more.

But, the misconception is that neither you nor I can pick and choose what is spiritual and what is not. Either everything is spiritual or nothing is. I prefer to believe that everything is, and that must, automatically, include money. The size of money, the amount of wealth, cannot alter the spiritual nature of it at all. Therefore, the term ‘Need, not Greed' is always a judgment based on a misconception aimed at stopping people from becoming ‘unspiritual'.

For goodness' sake, if you want to win the lottery and spend the next seven years on permanent vacation on a cruise ship, good luck to you. If this is you, I think I NEED a vacation like that as well!
