We live in an abundant Universe.
What that means is that there is more than enough of everything, material or immaterial, that you desire for your life.
One of the important reasons to be more mindful is to be more capable of recognizing the artifices of the world we live in. A lot of our beliefs that we buy into have been bought and paid for by someone or something else. This is where cults big and small come into being, because a number of people accept somebody’s truth without really being aware of why they cling to that truth.
Fear is powerful. There are any number of people out there in the world who like to use fear to maintain control. Fear is how Brexit came to be. I have little doubt fear is why Trump is President. People buy into the fear, and the fear often peddles lack and scarcity to the masses.
When we see the world as lacking, and resources as scarce, abundance looks like a lie. How can this possibly be an abundant universe when so many people are struggling and suffering?
Let’s be honest with ourselves, shall we? A lot of the struggles these people have are due to false lack and scarcity created by others. For example, when super-greedy business leaders get massive tax cuts, then go ahead and pay themselves obscene amounts of money, but THEN don’t bother to create jobs with living wages, they actually create more lack.
This insufficiency is an artifice created by people who care only for themselves. And we buy into it, because we are made to feel powerless to change it. The cycle continues.
To be abundant takes less than you might think
Since you are reading this, you either have, or have access to, a tool to get onto the internet. As such, you have an incredible abundance of information at your fingertips. That, right there, is a huge part of abundance. It also means you can locate resources to build more abundance to further empower yourself.
Sure, there may be more that we desire to have, both tangible and intangible; but we have an abundance of things. We have the ability to grow and change and choose for ourselves. As such, we are empowered to recognize the false lack and scarcity that we are constantly sold, and to see how abundant our lives can be.
When we recognize that we have good things, and can have more, we can see how abundant our lives already are. If we turn our focus away from lacking and insufficient, and be aware and mindful of abundance, we can consciously create a reality we desire for not just ourselves, but the world. To be abundant takes only a little effort.
I do feel I need to digress a moment here. When it comes to those of us who suffer various invisible disabilities, lack and scarcity readily come to mind. However, despite depression, anxiety, and any other matters we might be coping with, we still have a choice. Be a victim, or be a victor? This former is lack and fear mentality, the latter is abundance mentality.
Yeah, there are days that suck, and the struggle feels almost insurmountable. But we can still have abundance, and we can still choose to be mindful of this in how we see the world.
Abundant is material and immaterial
Another form of being abundant is recognizing there is more than enough kindness, love, and empathy in the world for those who are struggling, whether tangibly or intangibly. These aspects of positivity go a long ways towards creating a better world overall. We need to utilize them to generate greater abundance not just for ourselves, but for the world at large.
We are worthy and deserving of abundance. Don’t let the fear mentality overwhelm and control you. You and I can do amazing things when we are mindful of this. We live in an abundant Universe.
Being mindful of positivity is not hard, but it does require action
Knowing that the Universe is abundant, we can work with this to find and generate more positivity, as well as keep the fear, lack, and scarcity at bay. When we recognize how little it takes to be abundant, and become both mindful and aware of this, ultimately we empower ourselves.
When we feel empowered, we become more aware and mindful, and tend to spread that feeling to others around us. As such, we can build more positive feelings.
We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings. When we eradicate negative feelings, we open up space to let in more positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.
Gratitude leads to happiness. Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude. An attitude of gratitude is a positive attitude that begets even more good energies, and that is always worthwhile.
