yes but this is manifesting basic needs. I never heard about him manifesting A house in Beverly Hills, A Ferrari, income of millions of dollars.
I guess it comes down to what world you have more faith in the physical or spiritual??
To me the physical is just an illusion, and I am able to get more satisafaction from my posessions than a millionaire why? because i dont care what anyone says a millionaire will have more attachment to there material worth, they can help it it the devil inside wanting more.
You talk about using money as a tool, yes i do i use it as a tool for my basic needs, food, shelter, education, etc the problem is when you use it to fulfil your 'desires' thinking you will become fulfilled, when the physical world alone will never fulfill you. Remember Alexander the world was not enough for him.
