The Teachable Spirit of Happy Goldilocks

Being happy in your spirit has to do with understanding what you need or what you lack before you can ever decide what makes you happy. The teachable spirit knows that experiencing hunger, tiredness, or discomfort is the prerequisite for determining what makes you happy. Consider Goldilocks for a moment. Finding the house in the forest occurred when she was hungry. Tasting the three bowls of porridge led to observing: one was too hot one was too cold one was just right Feeling tired led to seeking which chair would best accommodate her need. She thought that the first two chairs were too big and the third one was just right. Sitting in it; however, caused the chair to break, leading to more discomfort. Climbing the stairs in search of a better solution, she...

Desire vs. Want with the Teachable Spirit

What is the difference between desire and want? What word bridges the gap between desire and want? How can the definition help the teachable spirit? Recently, I have been reading a marvelous book entitled A Happy Pocket Full of Money written by David Cameron Gikandi, who happens to be from Kenya. Among other things, David Cameron Gikandi was a creative consultant on “The Secret,” a 2006 bestselling film documentary based on Rhonda Byrne’s book of the same title. He defines “want” as: to be without; lack to be destitute or needy a defect of character; a fault to be absent to be deficient or lacking to fail; not to be sufficient to fall or come short; to lack When you want something, he states, this is what the universe gives you–absence...

Sufficiency with the Teachable Spirit

Sufficiency with the Teachable Spirit

What is the definition of sufficiency? What is enough? How does the teachable spirit acquire this concept? Sufficiency is the quality of precisely enough, the adequate supply that meets our needs exactly where we are, neither too much nor two little. In her book, The Soul of Money, Lynne Twist describes sufficiency as the place hidden on the inverse side of the three toxic myths prevalent in our world today: There is not enough. More is better. That’s just the way that it is. Yeshua (Jesus) lived in sufficiency. Some say He was poor; others say that He was wealthy because He was the Son of God. The truth is, He always had exactly enough to do precisely what he needed to do at that moment; never more and never less. When the tax collectors were attempting...
