“Believing in abundance opens the door to wondrous wishes fulfilled….” p 148
In the chapter, “Wondrous Wishes” from The ABC Path toward True Wisdom there is a story about apple picking at an orchard in upstate New York. The prolific amount of apples on every branch was stunning evidence that nature produces in abundance. There is no sense of scarcity in nature’s design.
This is also evident in nursing mothers. Mothers are designed to produce the milk their infant needs in abundance, and then a rhythm of ebb and flow develops as their breasts fill in response to the amount the infant takes. When the infant finally rejects the breast, the milk dries up.
“This offered another metaphor regarding abundance – the flow of possibilities is dependent upon desire. There is a rhythm to provide all we need, but we have to demonstrate we want it or it dries up.” p 146
How does this relate to financial challenges? Understanding your relationship with the ebb and flow of financial resources is a journey to self understanding, to discovering real truths about what you desire – what you want, what you need, and what you truly believe is possible.
Questions for Circle Discussion:
- How do you stay spiritually balanced or “in the flow” when finances are weak?
- What truths have you learned from facing financial challenges in the past?
- How will these truths serve you when facing financial challenges in the future?
About the questions for Circle discussion:
These questions are not about discussing personal finances. They are to generate a deeper, spiritual discussion about truths you have learned through the challenges of financial management.
What has your relationship with the ebb and flow of financial resources revealed to you about who you are, what you desire, and what works best for you?
