The Abundance Inside Us

Dr. Wayne Dyer said, “Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.” When people think of abundance it is easy to think about what you have. We are all born into this world the same. We have nothing but our bodies, and it is our parents who have all of the belongings they used for our benefit to clothe and feed us and keep us safe. As we grow more independent, and we provide for ourselves, it is easy to get caught up in trying to acquire more “things” – things like cars and houses and all that goes in them. We acquire more or nicer clothes to make us feel good about the way we look. I once heard that we spend the first half of our lives acquiring stuff and the second half trying to get rid of it! True abundance however can only come from within. If we do not feel satisfied with what we have within in us, then we will never be satisfied with the material things we surround ourselves with. I think with a certain amount of personal growth and understanding and maybe even maturity we come to understand that we have within us all that we need and we just need to learn to recognize it.
