March 15, How Abundance Works

Thought for today:

When we first join DA we may hear a lot about abundance and wonder why.  But for many of us, it’s a foreign concept.

The universe has an abundant supply of everything we need to succeed and be happy, and as long as our focus is on spiritual things, material and emotional things fall into place.

But we often felt that we had to fight for everything we got.  Some of us even went so far as to take moral “shortcuts”, stealing or cheating to get the things we wanted. These things imply a zero-sum game, where the universe only has so much to dole out, and where we have to compete for every scrap.

The fact is that in DA we realize there is “plenty of time, money, and love”!  If we only get out of our own way, we can see, use, appreciate and share abundance.  Sure we have work to do, but it all starts with an attitude adjustment of the spirit.

Am I allowing natural abundance to start flowing into my life today?

Meditation for today:

Think of your Higher Power as a stream flowing through your life, giving you everything you need to survive and thrive.  Our Higher Power freely offers much to us if we are ready to receive and appreciate it.

If we are ready, we will find “love and understanding beyond our wildest dreams”.  We will find all our needs taken care of.  We find material blessing, and when we pass it on to others who can also receive, trusting that the stream will replenish us, it does. Without this simple example of trust, the stream ceases to flow. That is how it works.

Your Higher Power will never fail to surprise and amaze in the many ways of replenishing your life.  Accept, receive, utilize, let go of control, and leave the results to the spirit of love.

Affirmation for today:

There is plenty of time, money, and love. Today I will cherish these in my life.

Prayer for today:

I pray that I will not get too caught up in the material world. I pray that my first priority is the spiritual healing I so desperately need. Wealth will follow naturally.
