“Abundance is not something we acquire, it is something we tune in to.” - Wayne Dyer
Abundance is a state of being within. It is not defined by what we have but by who we are. My inner self is sometimes forgiving, sometimes accepting, most of the time loving, most of the time peaceful, half of the time non-judgmental, most of the time giving, most of the time patient, some of the time understanding. How do you feel your inner self? How do you get in tune to that place of who you are as a thinking, feeling person? By taking the time to be aware and stop and sit with yourself, you can abound in the essence of you, your spirit. Your inner self. And find the way to fulfill the state of your abundance at this moment in time.
I see abundance as the overflowing of all positive attributes. When a situation arises that would normally be combative, for example, it could be peaceful if the abundance lies in understanding and acceptance – understanding of who the person is who exhibits insecurity, righteousness to a fault, jealousy, dislike, hoarding, judging, unfairness, selfish intention – and acceptance of the person. At the same time, showing by example that one can understand and accept. When I can tune in to this understanding and acceptance within myself, I feel full: abundant.
“Acknowledging all the good that you already have in your life is the foundation of all abundance.” - Ekhart Tolle
We can build on the good. Ask yourself, “what is good in my life right now?” and recognize it every day as a building block to all other positive good things. Good attracts good so like magnets we can abound in these energetic attractions. Only good rests here.
Abundance leads to joy. Abundance of all positive attributes and all that is good leads to a joyful life. There is always suffering and sadness and pain – this is life – what we make prevalent in our thoughts and hearts will take hold and make a difference in how we feel.
This time of year is associated with abundance because of the full harvest moon, fall harvest, our Thanksgiving holiday. Originally, an abundance of the harvests.
When you think about it, we have what we need. Imagine if we could be happy with just our basic needs met? Like food, clothing and shelter. Imagine the tribes who had traditions of all sorts and all they needed they arranged and generations went on and on and on. Simple pleasures. Abundance.
Oh, but I really want that... whatever it is. What we need to fulfill ourselves and what we want are two different things. Wants do not lead to abundance in any inner form. Fulfilling our needs to a good outer life, taking care of our basic needs, and filling out our inner selves to be positive, to forgive, to accept, to love, to give, leads to a joyful existence.
May you be happy. May you be free. May you be grateful. May you let go of things that do not serve you. May you have inner peace.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
