The Journey to Living Abundantly – The Fear of Living in Abundance
Abundance is a journey of joy and purpose. So, why would anyone have a fear of abundance? Here, we will identify four groups of people who fear abundance.
First, some people believe that abundance and wealth would only lead to corruption and destruction of the human spirit. As we explore this error in judgment, we will provide some clarification on this misconception.
The truth is, not one person who is corrupted or on the path of destruction is living abundantly, not one. Abundance is not just about material wealth; however, it does not exclude material wealth.
Abundance is about living in optimal health, vibrancy, and purpose with resources, empowering relationships, and a strong sense of our true self. Material wealth and material riches are a manifestation of mental and spiritual wealth that lies within the individual. As a result of this spiritual and mental wealth, one can only help but to manifest material wealth and that material wealth become material riches.
Accordingly, we should not concern ourselves with the fear that material wealth will corrupt us. Material wealth, including money, will only make you more of what you already are. If you have good character and compassion for others, with material wealth, you will have more good character and more compassion for others. If you are a scoundrel and a cheat, with material wealth, you will be an even bigger scoundrel and a cheat. Therefore, if you are kind, giving, loving, and creative, with your wealth you will be even more kind, giving, loving, and creative while enjoying a life of abundance. If you are insecure, selfish, hoarding, and deceitful, with your wealth, you will be even more insecure, selfish, hoarding, and deceitful while living a life of discontent, sadness, and self-destruction.
Second, there is yet another group of people who fear abundance. Some individuals fear abundance because they believe that abundance will require hours and hours of hard work. The Universal Law of Economy of Force or the Principle of Least Resistance contends that this is just not true. Too many people are spending 16 hour days working, hoping, and praying that soon all their money troubles will be over and they can retire in the Bahamas at 65 years old.
Unfortunately, this is not happening. Recent studies show, that many people have been forced to come out of retirement.
There is a reality check we should cash long before we cash our pay check and this reality check is…We are not supposed to work hard. What? That is right. We are supposed to work creatively. That’s what the human Spirit desires. Hard work causes mental and spiritual fatigue and therefore makes mental and spiritual wealth impossible. If we have no mental and spiritual wealth, then we have nothing to show for all our hard work. This fatigue is also the result of our own resistance. Because of this resistance, we interrupt the flow of abundance in our lives and prevent us from being able to create. The truth is we create in our thought world. When we are fatigue, our thought process does not work properly.
In our thought world, during times of stillness and quiet, the Universe whispers plans, inventions, and ideas. These witty plans, inventions, and ideas are a part of the creative energies of the Universe waiting for our higher consciousness to receive it. This is the abundance within us at work.
By stilling the mind in meditation, we discover this knowledge and wisdom as a result of our allowing creative energy to flow. When we act on it, we create wealth. We create freedom. For each of these plans, inventions, ideas serve a purpose and that purpose in to help humanity in some impacting way. Therefore, it is already a demand for your idea. There are millions of people wanting it. All you need is the faith and courage to execute.
As this creative energy continues to flow, your execution will seem effortless. It will seem effortless when you take the time to meditate and determine how each step should be carried out. Before long, you have tapped into the field of infinite possibilities where everything that is possible is possible. You will have opened the flood gates to wealth and success and you will have embarked on the journey to living abundantly.
The third group of individuals who fear abundance are often classified as those who fear success. Amazingly, there are more who are in this group than any other group of people who fear abundance. Those who fear success are have had personal experiences where they have felt responsible for everyone else. This often happens in a family or group dynamic. The individual feels that if he or she succeeds, he or she will have to carry the entire family or group with him. Because this burden is overwhelming, the individual fears success and settles for mediocrity. While this group which fears abundance would be classified as a fear of success, there is a fourth group of those who fear abundance.
The fourth group that fears abundance would be classified as those who fear failure. Again, the Principle of Expectations contends that energy follows thoughts. Therefore, keep thinking it and it will happen…whatever it is. Here is a novel thought. Practice the Universal Law of No Attachments. In this law, you go through the process doing all you can while the Universe handle the details.
All you do is what you know how to do. You stay in meditation. Asking the Universe to show you what you should do next. After you have done it. You step back and let the Universe handle the rest. If the Universe says write a book. The Universe will present you with opportunities to learn what you need to learn to write a book. Then, write the book. You don not worry about how many copies will sell. You don not worry if the audience will like it or not.
Simply do what you know how to do. Meditate. Allow the flow. Expect the best. Gain wisdom in what you are doing. Take each step expecting the best and the best will come. That is abundance in action.
