If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never truly be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself. Be content with what you have…rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you. ~ Lao Tzu
When we realize that nothing is lacking, we live in feelings of appreciation, gratitude, prosperity and abundance. When we deeply feel these emotions, when we wake up with them and go to sleep with them, then our outer world “matches” our inner world. What we feel, we will be. Our thoughts and feelings of prosperity and abundance magnetize all the material “things” that represent that prosperity and abundance to us. Like attracts like – that’s the miracle.
So how do we get to the spot of living in feelings of appreciation, gratitude, prosperity and abundance? For me, it’s been a gradual process of peeling away the layers of self-doubt, unworthiness, and self-degradation. Learning not to judge; myself or others. Allowing me to be me, whatever that is. Living to the fullest and best and highest possible Della. That’s what has allowed me to be content with what I have right now.
In my psychic studies we call this process “havingness”, as in, “Can you “have” your current state of being, with all its ups and downs, disappointments and discouragements? Can you have exactly where you are right now, for the rest of your life?”
Think about that for a long moment. Can you have exactly where you are, with all the discomfort you may feel about your financial situation, your job, your relationships, for the rest of your life? Can you stop the striving for that which is outside of you and be content with the current state of your existence?
If you can come to terms with that, if you can feel deep in your soul, that you are exactly where you should be at this moment in time, doing exactly what is best for you, then – right there – in that moment of acceptance – is grace.
That is the miracle. Grace. Grace removes the feelings of lack. Grace is that state of prosperity and abundance. It is a non-striving, totally aware, totally creative space of havingness.
In this state of Grace, you are ready to create. You are ready to magnetize to you, all the material things that represent this state of appreciation and prosperity. Think deeply about “having” exactly where you are right now. Can you make that shift?
