More Than Enough

We live in a world of lack, that is almost entirely our own creation.

We don't have enough time, enough money, enough connection, enough pleasure, enough fulfilment, enough meaning.

There's never enough. We constantly want more. We spend our lives trying to get more and then being frustrated that we can't "have it all."

We live this way because we are told to. And we have to stop.

We already have everything we need. What is richer than this moment? What is better than being alive? Than seeing that we are inseparable from all life?

We may not be able to see this all at once. Maybe we can start slowly. Find one thing or person that you are grateful for and give thanks. And then find another. When we begin to practice gratitude, we see abundance rather than lack. We see life bringing us everything we need. That even our problems are opportunities. And we begin to witness the flow of infinite energy through our lives.

In just one moment, we can glimpse this immeasurable gift.
