We live, move, and have our very Being in a Field of Plenitude.
Lack, scarcity, and limitation do not exist in God’s World. For how could there be any concept of limitation in the Mind of the Infinite?
Yet for us to live in this awareness of plenitude, it is crucial that we not rely on seemingly external circumstances and conditions to supply our needs.
Our good does not come to us from other people.
Our good does not come to us from the world.
Much rather is the level of good that we experience a direct result of our ability of being able to receive what Divine Mind is seeking to bring forth through us.
Knowing this brings great freedom, for we no longer feel that we must manipulate things in the seemingly external world. Instead, we work within our own interiority. Rather than focusing on externals, we focus on raising our level of awareness.
It is always done unto us as we believe. So let us cultivate the kind of awareness, a level of faith, that will move mountains. And let us give thanks that whatever we’ve asked for is already done in the Mind of God.
As we do this, rather than perceiving ourselves as separate from our good, we begin to inhabit a mental atmosphere of gratitude.
We become what we may call Jubilant Souls, always finding something to appreciate while joyously anticipating what is flowing into our lives.

There is something timeless and formless that exists within all of us.
This deeper Realm is beyond the five senses. It is birthless, deathless, and eternal. And It is in a process of forever unfolding and revealing Itself throughout the Cosmos.
If we are to seek true fulfillment, we must learn to regularly withdraw our attention from the world of the senses, the world of effects, and instead turn within.
As we turn within, we access this sweet and delicious Presence that is forever shining forth within us. It is from this Presence that we may draw whatever is required at any given moment.
We are indeed fueled and funded by the all-giving Spirit of Life. This Divine Spirit has remade Itself in Its own image and likeness, and It has named Itself each and every one of us.
As our awareness is flooded with this realization, all the stuff that we thought mattered, all the drama of the world of effects, begins to lose its appeal.
We have become but a field of radiant peace.
Our hearts have become an open doorway that lets Love flow to and fro.
We have truly become the Light of the World.
So with this joyous promise awaiting nothing other than our conscious realization of it, let us regularly turn within so that we may access that part of us that was never born and which will never die.
Let us walk in an awareness of our True Nature, and let us freely shine our light upon everything and everyone that enters our field of awareness.

Everything flows from the unmanifested into the manifested. Everything we see first began in consciousness. This is also true for abundance.
True abundance means there is more than enough for everyone. We are able to freely share and joyously give from the overflow.
And though abundance often expresses in all manner of material forms, it is actually a Divine Quality that begins in consciousness. Abundance is a vibration, a feeling tonality which, when actualized, manifests all throughout nature.
We may see this when we look at the countless grains of sand spread across beaches all over the world.
We may see it when we contemplate the limitless blades of grass or the vast number of leafs growing from trees.
And we may see it as we consider the billions of galaxies, each containing billions of stars, spread across a universe that is expanding at an incredible pace.
There is no concept of lack or limitation in God’s World.
Yet for us to be in alignment with this truth, we must learn to train ourselves to notice abundance rather than lack, to look for what’s already there rather than dwell upon what we think is missing.
A good way to start is to find some area in our lives where we are already experiencing some sense of having, no matter how insignificant or little our surface mind may have labeled it.
Gratitude is the key. As we give thanks for what we already have, we are opening a space through which more good can flow into our lives.
So let us become joyful appreciators. Let us be aware that Divine Mind knows no shortage. And let us be receptive towards all the good that is seeking to flow into our lives, if we will but let it.

Here’s one of the many wonderful things about the spiritual path: each and every moment of each and every day can be a new beginning.
Free from the ego’s burden of guilt, we may choose in each moment of the journey to simply release and let go, and begin again.
New beginnings, like God’s grace, are infinite.
Knowing this frees us from the pressure we’ve bestowed upon ourselves, and even in those moments where we feel we’ve fallen short, we can simply and confidently enter into that warm embrace of Spirit.
As we are soothed by the comfort of the sweet Ineffable, we may come to realize that even those experiences which our mind may have labeled mistakes were, in fact, perfect.
All of it has been, and forever will be, part of the joyous evolution of our Soul.
So, fellow traveler, rest assured that even in the moments where the light of insight may have seemed distant from your awareness, there too you will be able to find tremendous gifts hidden beneath seeming chaos – if you are but open to receiving these gifts.
And though God remains truly indescribable, this Infinite Presence of Spirit is forever closer to you than your very own breath.
As you make yourself available to this insight, every moment can be a return to Love, a return to Joy, a return to Beauty, a return Peace.
Simply put, a return to your Self.

We see the world as we are.
What we see in others is in ourselves.
And so as we learn to be more loving and compassionate towards ourselves, we find we are able to be more loving and compassionate towards our fellow travelers on this great adventure called Life.
So love yourself.
You are one in a kind.
Realize that God could never make a mistake. And as such, when God remade Itself in Its own spiritual image and likeness and named Itself you, It could have only done so according to Its own divine pattern of perfection.
So we may reason that there could not possibly be anything wrong with you.
You truly are a unique way in which Love Intelligence is being expressed and experienced right here on this planet at this time in human history.
And you are here so you may use your unique set of gifts, skills, talents, and sensibilities to contribute to this planet in a beneficial way.
Allow yourself to feel into that.
Allow yourself to see that there’s something magnificent in you.
As you tune into this awareness, you will be able to see this same magnificence in everyone else.
That is because, in truth, there is no one else.
There is only God. There is only Love. There is only Beauty. And all of it is seeking to be expressed and revealed through you!
Now is Life grand, or what?

Relationships are the great mirror of self.
Our relationships demonstrate to us which areas of our life are working well, and which areas require further attention.
Our intention should be to bless all of our relationships. Not merely the ones that are working well, but especially the ones that we experience as a challenge. The challenge is an indicator that there’s something to be learned, there is a seed of growth awaiting to blossom into the experience of more love and compassion.
The truth is the issue lies never within the other individual, but merely within our own perception. This is because the ego tends to project what it has disowned onto others.
Yet as we begin to evolve and mature, as we begin to grow more conscious, we start to see right through the ego’s faulty perception.
So rather than speaking badly about other individuals, rather than engaging in blaming and faultfinding, our approach becomes one of self-inquiry.
We may turn within and ask, “What aspect that I have denied within myself am I projecting onto this other being? What story am I telling myself that is keeping me from demonstrating my true nature of love, kindness, and compassion? What quality of consciousness must I cultivate to be at peace in this situation?”
The answer may surprise you.
Yet the answer is a pointer.
The answer is an invitation.
It is inviting you to become more of your True Self. It is inviting you into moving to the next stage of embodying your highest potential.
Will you accept this invitation?
Bless all of your relationships. For they are the great mirror of self.
