SPIRITUAL EXPLORATIONS – 298

This is the daily exploration for Monday, October 24, 2016.
WE ARE EXPLORING THE HEAVENLY ATTRIBUTE OF ABUNDANCE


+ It is our duty as men and women to proceed as though the limits of our abilities do not exist.
-- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

+ Abundance is for everyone.  Abundant Love.  Abundant Beauty.  Abundant Truth.  Abundant Freedom.  Abundant Peace.  Abundant Justice.  Abundant Joy.  Abundant Wisdom.

Too many of us make the mistake of measuring abundance by our bank account, our net worth, what we own, what we have. When we do this we can never get enough. And we can ruin it for everybody else.

Abundance is a gift which can be sustained only when we realize what abundance is and what it isn’t. It cannot be sustained if competition is more important than cooperation, if winning becomes paramount.  It can be sustained if we measure our abundance by what we give as much as, if not more than, what we receive.  Sharing the gift of abundance is essential.

Sustainable Abundance is the goal. Everything depends on it. It is natural. It is God’s 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. 

+ Although Spirituality & Practice doesn’t have Abundance per se as a practice, they do offer an abundance of resources  on many practices which are all about abundance including:  Gratitude |  Wonder | Connections | Attention


+ I would love it if you offered a guest post.  And, I have work to do on the Abundancetrek Abundance page.  Maybe you can help.  Send an email with the subject “Abundance” or “Heavenly Attributes” or “Guest Post” to John@abundancetrek.com.
