Spiritual Abundance: Reflecting on Scripture

What does the scripture say about the idea that there is enough? What does Ephesians say about sufficiency? Can we clarify these thoughts with the Word of God? Reflecting on scripture and relating these ideas to Ephesians, we see Paul opening the first chapter in verse three with, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua (Jesus) Messiah, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Messiah.” This sense of bounty continues throughout the first chapter, which is replete with references to abundance: verse six, which He freely bestowed on us verse seven, according to the riches of His grace verse eight, which He lavished on us verse eleven, we have obtained an inheritance verse eighteen, the riches of the glory of His...

There is Enough: Understanding the Experiences of Life

Changing our thinking about reality, understanding there is enough, living in the happiness of the present, is the reality that will change our world and those around us. “R. Buckminster (“Bucky”) Fuller stated in the 70’s, that we were able to do so much more with so much less that as a human family we clearly had reached a point where there actually was enough for everyone everywhere to meet or even surpass their needs to live a reasonably healthy, productive life. The challenge, he said, was that all our structures and systems—politics, government, health-care, education, economics, and especially our money system—have been designed around scarcity, around the belief that there was not enough for everyone and that someone would be left out.”...

Abundant Supply: Understanding the Experiences of Life

Do you see the universe as having more than an abundant supply? When you look at the world, what do you see? This might seem like a trite question; you can respond that you see trees, lakes, forests, etc., but I am not referring to physicality. We see the world around us through the concepts and ideas in our head. Understanding the experiences of life during my childhood has caused me to wonder why there was always a race to get to the last piece of cake, the last piece of candy, the last piece of chicken, or whatever was the most delicious remaining substance. Raising my children, this was the same, even though I repeatedly told them I could make more, I could go buy the ingredients and make the same dish–they still raced to finish the most delicious recent...

A Teachable Spirit is Acquired Through Gratitude and Humility

Gratitude + Humility = A Teachable Spirit 1.  See the universe as having more than an abundant supply. When you look at the world, what do you see? During my childhood, there was always a race to get to the last piece of cake, the last piece of candy, the last piece of chicken, or whatever was the most delicious remaining substance. Why? The old analogy of whether the glass is half empty or half full comes to mind. Is there enough air to breath? Growing up all I ever heard over and over again was how there was not enough; the world seemed to produce the results in accordance with what I thought.  2.  Apply the law of non-resistance in every situation. Putting energy on an experience being “bad” creates more of it. The value of non-resistance is...
