What does Abundance mean for me? For years, my focus was on being grateful for what I have in my life. Abundance for me was only love, values, personal growth and service. Financial security was not part of the deal. It felt negative for me to want it. Since then, life experiences taught me that I should include not only financial security in my definition of Abundance but even prosperity and success. I realized that Abundance is a rich concept which includes everything.
Recently, dear friends of us gave us the book “The Science of getting RICH” by Wallace D. Wattles. What’s amazing about this book is that it was published in 1910 but his ideas are so relevant and powerful today! I will share some of his inspirations in the next couple of days.
Page 73: “There is thinking stuff from which all things are made. A thought, in this Substance, produces the thing that is imaged by the thought. Man can form things in his thought, and, by impressing his thought upon Formless Substance, can cause the thing he thinks about to be created. In order to do this, man must pass from the competitive to the creative mind; he must form a clear mental picture of the things he wants, and hold this picture in his thoughts with the fixed PURPOSE to get what he wants, and the unwavering FAITH that he does get what he wants, closing his mind against all that may tend to shake his purpose, dim his vision, or quench this faith”.
100 years ago, Wattles stated that we create our future in our mind. This idea was picked up for The Secret in 2006. Do you agree?
