SPIRITUAL EXPLORATIONS – 307

This is the daily exploration for Wednesday, November 2, 2016.
+ We are called to create and enjoy a realm of compassion, peace, justice and sustainable abundance for all.

+ Authentic abundance does not lie in secured stockpiles of food or cash or influence or affection but in belonging to a community where we can give those goods to others who need them – and receive them from others when we are in need … Abundance is a communal act, the joint creation of an incredibly complex ecology in which each part functions on behalf of the whole and, in return, is sustained by the whole. Community doesn’t just create abundance – community is abundance. If we could learn that equation from the world of nature, the human world might be transformed.
-- Parker Palmer in Let Your Life Speak

+ Learn this “communal act.” Do this. Teach this. The world needs more and more of us who know this to spread the word and make it so.  This happens as we continue to be transformed by our constant commitment to the mind, heart, body and soul practices which create and sustain this “communal act,” this “joint creation,” this sustainable abundance for all.

+ 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 >
