Links to all of the SE posts on the heavenly attribute of Abundance posted so far:
There is more than enough. Far more. You can give freely because you can never run out. Thatís the way God made it. God is Love and this Love is unlimited. God provides. God satisfies. Thatís the way it is in heaven. Celebrate. Enjoy. Be glad all over.
But earth is often a poor reflection of this heavenly reality. We often donít experience this abundance. Heaven seems far away, even a fantasy, a tease, even a lie.
Practice. Practice. Practice. Thatís what it takes for us to realize we really do live in a realm where abundance prevails. Itís not so much that we make it happen as it is that we allow God to make it happen. Let go. Let God.
First it becomes a reality deep within us and then it becomes a reality for everyone we touch. Sometimes this takes an instant and sometimes it takes a little longer: days, weeks, months, years, even decades and centuries in some cases. Patience.
People who live in extreme material poverty are sometimes the very people who attain the state of abundance. But this can become an excuse for inaction, for acceptance of a status quo which is anything but heaven on earth
I begin with abundance even though Love is the central attribute because it is so important to realize how much we have right now, right here. We have the resources here on earth to bring Godís amazing Love to everyone, to end so much suffering that so many people and other creatures are currently confronting. We can and must do something about it. Abundance is the reason why we can do something about it.
We DO have more than enough. So, give, give, give. Share. Share. Share. Invent. Innovate. Build. Transform society. Keep at it until no one, no creature, is denied the abundance God intends for everyone to enjoy.
It can be done. There are ways to make this happen. Letís do what God wants us to do. Abundance is a birthright. Letís make sure no one is denied their birthright. There is plenty of work to be done. It can be done.
Letís get one thing straight. The abundance every creature deserves and needs is Love. Too many creatures are not getting enough Love. And when you donít get enough Love, you donít give enough Love. So, those of us who know there is enough Love need to lead the way in giving, giving, giving Ö giving until everyone is loved enough, loved more than enough.
So, do you really know how much you are loved? If you feel deprived, then the practice you are doing has not yet produced the realization that you are loved unconditionally. You and every other creature in the universe.
Abundance is for everyone. Abundant Love. Abundant Beauty. Abundant Truth. Abundant Freedom. Abundant Peace. Abundant Justice. Abundant Joy. Abundant Wisdom.
Too many make the mistake of measuring their abundance by their bank account, their net worth, what they own, what they have. So many of these people never can get enough. And they are ruining it for everybody else. Are you in that category?
Abundance is a gift which can be sustained only when we realize what abundance is and what it isnít. It cannot be sustained if competition is more important than cooperation, if winning becomes paramount.
Sustainable Abundance is the goal. Everything depends on it. It is natural. It is Godís will. It is achievable. It can be done.
It can be done because there is more than enough for everyone. It can be done when people realize this, when everyone realizes that abundance and not scarcity is the way it really is.
In other words, abundance is an attitude. I am so grateful that I have more than enough of everything I need and can freely give to those who are temporarily lacking everything they need. I donít need to hold on to so many of the things I thought I needed. I know what abundance is once I know I have enough and give away all that I donít need. I share.
One must develop this attitude in order to experience heaven. Heaven is an attitude, a state of mind and heart and body and soul. We canít explore heaven without developing this attitude of abundance. This attitude is achieved when you realize that you have more than enough of everything you need and desire with all of your mind, heart, body and soul that everyone has enough, far more than enough. Plenty.
An abundance attitude, an abundance state of mind, is an attitude of gratitude. Be grateful for lifeís many gifts. They keep coming. Help everyone else become grateful for lifeís many gifts.
Since you are practicing faithfully now, practicing stillness, detachment, humility, practicing silence discernment healing, practicing solitude, devotion, holiness, practicing simplicity, delight, heavenliness, you now know you are in heaven. You are a heavenly being. You have it all. Celebrate. Enjoy. Be glad all over.
+ There is no way to abundance. Abundance is the way.
God wants us to enjoy the abundance of creation. Most of us don't enjoy it anywhere near fully. Jesus said: I have come to bring you life, and life in its' fullness. We limit ourselves immensely.
Abundance is here now. It is always here now. It can only be appreciated in the here and now moment. The future hasn't come yet. The past is over. In THE HANDBOOK TO HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS, Ken Keyes wrote "The Twelve Pathways to Higher Consciousness." Pathway #4 is: "I always remember that I have everything I need to enjoy my here and now -- unless I am letting my consciousness be dominated by demands and expectations based on the dead past or the imagined future." Keyes' "Living Love" method speaks directly to the process of transforming scarcity belief into abundance belief.
We always have it all!
God is Love. The whole creation is filled with Love. There is an abundance of Love and all that Love creates. We are blessed with an abundance of Love and all that Love creates moment after moment after heavenly moment.
God is everywhere. Love is everywhere. There is an abundant supply of Love. We all need Love. We all can give Love. The more we give, the more we receive. There is an endless supply of Love so we can give it away freely. Giving Love freely is the key to opening the door to heaven where abundance is the rule. This is what we need to believe. The more we believe this, the more this becomes real.
Any abundance that is not for every one is a false abundance. We need to develop a shared and sustainable abundance everywhere.
