When we focus on abundance, we tend to think about how much money we have, or what possessions we own. If our monetary and material assets are few, we believe that we are lacking in abundance. We can have millions of dollars, and we can lose it or give it away and be left with poverty. These things are transient and uncertain.
What if we reframed the reference of abundance to a meaning of what we ARE, rather than what we have? If I am at peace, it may be said I have an abundance of peace. If I am cheerful, I have an abundance of cheer. If I am loving, I have an abundance of love. If I am abundant in these things, I can give it all away, and I still have a never-ending flow. This makes us truly abundant!
True abundance has nothing to do with anything that I am having, and everything to do with what I am being. And that when I share my abundance of beingness abundantly with all those whose lives I touch, everything I sought to have came to me automatically, without my even trying to have them.
Experiment with the idea of BE-ing abundant, and focus on it rather than on ‘having’ abundance. When you do this, you may discover that ‘stuff’ matters comparatively little when you are being abundant. Notice how your life enriches!
