A sign that we are maturing on the spiritual path is when we begin to release our acquisitive nature – the part of us that is always seeking to get something – and instead commit to being of service.
Rather than going out into the world, believing that the world somehow holds our happiness, we instead have a very real and powerful sense that our happiness comes from within. It emanates from the core of our very Self.
And it is with this awareness that we are overcome with a palpable lightness of being, where every instant becomes a celebration, and everything we do we do with a glad heart.
Rather than asking, “How can I get what I think I need in order to be happy or survive?”, we instead approach every moment, every situation, every interaction with the question: “How may I be of service? How may I bring value? How may I be a blessing?”
We have realized that we are not here to try and get more stuff. Instead, we know that we already have it all, and it is our joyous task to simply demonstrate this truth in our experience.
We are here to freely share all of our gifts, skills, and talents; to freely shine our light, sing our song, and dance our dance.
And when we do this – which is seeking first the Kingdom of God, the Realm of the ever-expanding Good – we soon find that everything we thought we needed to chase after comes bursting into our experience.
Our lives are filled with riches and blessings beyond our wildest imagination simply because we are the blessing. And Life will always reflect back to us exactly what we are.

Two of the most powerful words that we can ever think, say, or embody, are: “Thank you.”
Whenever we are thankful, whenever we feel appreciation for something or for someone, we are actually creating a powerful vibratory field that will allow more things for which we may be thankful to flow into our experience.
Gratitude is an affirmative mental approach to Life. We shall make it a habit to say, “Thank you,” and we shall make it a habit to say it often. We have been given the keys of the kingdom, and we shall enter its gates with praise and thanksgiving.
So let us become joyous appreciators, always on the lookout for good. Always anticipating more to appreciate. Always ready to sing a song of praise, for we know that Life is good, and all is God.
And the highest form of gratitude is simply being thankful, not for anything in particular, but much rather for the gift of Life Itself.
When we can be thankful simply for the fact that we exist, when we can appreciate nothing other than that we are here, that the Divine Life Principle is powerfully flowing through every fiber of our Being, that’s when we will have entered the highest form of ecstatic appreciation.
So, my friends, be of good cheer. For you have been given the grandest gift of them all. The gift of Life Forevermore. And Life Forevermore is always seeking to express and reveal Its grandeur through you.
And how sweet the taste of that is!

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.
