Now Don’t Just Think of Money!
When we think of the word abundance most of us jump straight to material wealth. However, abundance, like the word ‘wealth’, does not only mean physical treasures.
Wealth can be measured by your physical wealth or health. Without your health you could be the richest person in the world and it would mean nothing.
“…the umbrella of wealth covers so much more than money.”
Wealth can also refer to your mental frame of mind, as in the case with health, if you are mentally ill all the gold in the world won’t help you.
Having meaningful relationships, whether romantic or otherwise is of great importance. In other words, you have a lot of money but no-one to share it with – not much fun either!
“…you could be the poorest or the richest person in the world and still suffer a huge amount of pain if you feel that everything is worthless and your life has no meaning. “
Then there is of course the financial wealth which we all think will solve our problems but as you can see from the list above, this is not always the case. Of course, it is wonderful to have no money worries and to be able to buy anything you desire or go any place in the world or just to have enough to pay the bills – I am not denying that. But the umbrella of wealth covers so much more than money.
The most important of all is the wealth of spirit. Without this you will be searching your whole life for meaning to it all and you could be the poorest or the richest person in the world and still suffer a huge amount of pain if you feel that everything is worthless and your life has no meaning.
The Distortion of Wealth
Unfortunately, through most media outlets we are being pumped with the need for greed. This is another clever ploy by the ‘elite’ to keep us in a cycle of want and ‘tunnel vision’.
“We are being manipulated on a massive scale to keep us from seeing certain truths about our reality.”
Be very careful of the need for riches and try to assess why you want all that money anyway. Always try to see the root of the desire and be mindful and appreciative of the trees in the forest instead of not seeing the forest for the trees.
We are being manipulated on a massive scale to keep us from seeing certain truths about our reality. This is being done to keep our minds preoccupied with meaningless pursuit. This is what I mean by being ‘mindful’ of your desires. Are they really yours? Or are you having the wool pulled over your eyes? So be clear about what you want and why you want it.
How Can I Feel Abundant When I Have Nothing?
A good starting place, to manifest your dreams, is to start with being grateful for what you do have. That which you consider being of wealth to you. This could be having a close family or a special talent or even the fact that you have a roof over your head and food in the fridge.
