SPIRITUAL EXPLORATIONS – 301

This is the daily exploration for Thursday, October 27, 2016.
WE ARE EXPLORING THE HEAVENLY ATTRIBUTE OF ABUNDANCE.


+ We are called to create and enjoy a realm of compassion, peace, justice and sustainable abundance for all.

+ O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches. No run on my bank can drain it, for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment.
-- Henry David Thoreau
This was the Gratefulness Word for the Day on Monday, October 24, 2016.

+ Ralph Waldo Emerson once asked what we would do if the stars came out only once every thousand years. No one would sleep that night, of course. The world would create new religions overnight. We would be ecstatic, delirious, made rapturous by the glory of God. Instead, the stars come out every night, and we watch television.
-- Paul Hawken, from “You are Brilliant and the Earth Is Hiring,”2009 Commencement Address, University of Portland
This was the OneSpirit Daily Inspiration on Monday, October 24, 2016.

+ I try to be aware of the synchronicity of life events as much as possible.  I thought it was pretty neat that both of these quotes came up today (October 24,2016) just as I was looking for ideas which reflect my understanding of abundance.  I think Thoreau and Emerson and Hawken nailed it.

Synchronicity is a major theme of James Redfield, the author of The Celestine Prophecy. All of the now famous insights which he first offered in that wonderful book are found at Celestine Vision.  He has modified (perfected) these insights and added a few in the years following the publication of The Celestine Prophecy. Here is the first insight:

SYNCHRONICITY is the entry point, the measure of whether we’re connected spiritually. These “meaningful coincidences” are tiny miracles steering us toward the good life. They are always seeking first, to awaken us, and then to allow us to be guided by a spiritual connection to the unfolding of our intended destiny.  Staying in a state of alert expectation concerning the major questions of our lives, or the help we need, increases the frequency of Synchronistic answers. The secret is remembering, first thing in the morning, to watch for these magical Synchronistic moments.

I invite you to read the rest of the insights at http://www.celestinevision.com/the-12-celestine-insights/

+ 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

Also, many of their Twelves Galleries focus on abundance.  With the following links you can quickly  choose among them >
