Spirit was not meant to suffer. That was a creation of man to create the fear model. Suffering takes people away from the light. Poverty consciousness keeps people away from their spiritual life. It is not better to be poor. It is not a higher vibration to suffer and be in lack.
Those who believe they are closer to God when they are poor are not. They think that suffering helps bring them to God but God is a high vibration and suffering is a low vibration. You move yourselves away from God, as you choose to suffer.
It doesn’t matter if someone is rich or poor. It is their attitude and sense of spiritual self and human self. If they project pure joy, their money can be a gift of spirit and whatever social economic group they belong to doesn’t matter. Rich or poor can be spiritual or devoid of spiritual connection. Each must create happiness for themselves.
