We as the human race were given the gift of evolving on an incredibly abundant and generous overflowing planet of resources and potential. What have we done with it? Not only have we been destroying the very resources that would sustain us naturally but mankind has created a social system within the planet that is a lie. The grand lie is that we don't have enough of what we need, so in order to survive, that some people get to live well, comfortably, struggling, poor or not at all.
I recently challenged my own blocks in my life to receiving success and abundance. I realized that the underlying subconscious decision I had made about money was that I already feel so blessed and like I have a lot more than some other people therefore don't deserve anymore than I have and well that is exactly the way I have been living for a long time- that I don't deserve more than what I already have. But saying that I don't deserve more because some people have so little- while noble, is a lie and is like claiming there isn't enough abundance to go around for everyone. Which is incongruent with my core philosophy that there is enough of everything on this planet to support everyone's dreams, success and abundance, so long as we are conscious and not greedy for the sake of an unchecked ego.
I firmly believe that the only thing we can do to help anything is truly to "be the change we wish to see", which is often difficult as it is easier to point your finger to blame and chastise external circumstances, however in the matter of abundance I would like to start unraveling the truth which is that there is enough resources and love on this planet for every single living thing to be happy, healthy, and successfully thriving. We as humans are the ones that created the illusion of lack and the concept that we need to be fighting each other over any resource at all.
Therefore if you and I ever thought we were being noble and humble by not thinking we deserve more than we already have in life, then we are choosing to participate in the lie that "there is not enough", when in reality there is. And I am definitely not talking about just wanting more to be gluttonous or because your soul lacks something it's trying to fill, I am talking about wanting more living. Money to start a business idea you have always wanted, being able to afford participating in grand traveling adventures, being able to visit the ones you miss and love and want to spend time with, buying an instrument or picking up a hobby or interest that better expresses who you are.
I refuse to believe that I don't deserve to do exactly what I was put on this earth to do, what gives my life meaning- is being able to express who I am in various creative ways, experience what there is to experience around me and have the time and leeway to wander around a bit on this planet and you can't do any of these things when you choose to exist in the "we don't have enough" zone. Break out of it and believe in abundance, it is there.
